What is Carnation Dreams?

Carnation Dreams is a Beauty, Fashion & Lifestyle blog with a focus on helping women to proclaim and maintain their inner outer beauty.
I am a 20-something year old wife, married to an amazing man that happens to be my best friend and college sweetheart. I am originally from Manhattan, but currently live in a small town enjoying the quiet life. I started Carnation Dreams because I wanted a place where people could come together to get their three fixes for the day (faith, beauty, and fitness)! What started as a hobby has now grown into a passion. *Fun fact* I love Disney, God and I are tight, and my not-so-guilty pleasures include The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars.

Style Session Posts
Because I am so passionate about blogging, I will try my best to post various outfit ideas frequently. I believe that having a visual example of a stylish look can really help when putting an outfit together for any occasion. My goal is that my outfits give you inspiration!

You'll notice in my style posts that I will always have a link to what I am wearing (or what is in the collage). I also love posting a weekly #NeedNow item that is perfect for your wardrobe, #OOTDInspiration (for those who need an outfit of the day idea) as well as the occasional #AsSeenOn posts.
I love working with fashion retailers so if a post is sponsored I will make sure to include a disclosure at the beginning or end of the post. However, when it comes to sponsors and partnerships, I only work with brands I connect with I approve, and believe is suitable for my amazing readers like you!

Beauty Posts + Videos
I believe that makeup should be used to enhance your face, not hide it. You are beautifully and wonderfully made by the most perfect creator! I want to share my beauty product tips and tricks with you. Here on the blog, I usually share beauty content in the following ways:
1. Review: I want you to know first hand what I think a certain product. If you ever want me to try something out first, let me know!
2. Selfie/How to: You know that feeling when you know you look good and want to share it with the world? Yeah, me too! Plus I can show you how I achieved the look.
3. Video: Whether its a tutorial or about my monthly favorites, talking about beauty products is lots of fun for me! As my blog grows I will try to produce more content for you.

Lifestyle Posts
I love to share moments and life experiences on my blog, such as how I had a debt free Wedding (here), my latest quiet times with the Lord, my fitness journey (#thestruggleisreal), food recipes, my thoughts on certain television shows etc.
