Simple Blue Stripes

Maybe it’s just the bell sleeves, but this top gives me major vintage vibes. Just pair it with some flare jeans and it’ll look like you stepped out from a different decade! I love that we’re constantly recycling styles from the fashonistas before us. This past fall I remember being so confused walking through the clothing section at Target because it felt like I was in the 90s! All the clothes looked like something you’d wear to a Nirvana concert. I’m always fascinated by trends; we get embarrassed by things such as what we wore, how we applied our makeup, styled our hair,…

Full Face with Five Products

While I love experimenting with full-glam makeup, some of my most favorite looks are actually very minimal. The best thing about these fresh and light makeup looks is that they’re very quick because they’re so simple! My day-to-day makeup routine is usually pretty low-maintenance, especially in the summer. Something about the extreme heat and intense humidity keeps me from wanting to apply too much on my face. Luckily, there are ways to create beautiful makeup looks using just a few holy grail products from your stash. Here are my five favorite products to use in my quick, effortless makeup routine:…

May 2017 Ipsy Unbagging

So, I’m throwing a little switcharoo here. You may or may not know that I’ve decided to trade my Boxycharm subscription for Ipsy just to try something a little different. While I thought I would love receiving full-size products, it was getting to be a bit much. Trial sizes seemed more practical, and I like the variety of cosmetic brands Ipsy has in their service. If you don’t know, Ipsy is a monthly makeup subscription service where you receive a cute (& actually useable) makeup bag with five trial-sized products for you to test out. I also love that the bag design…

KKW x Kylie Cosmetics Review & Lip Swatches

I rarely ever buy a product right when it’s released. Something about it has to catch my attention immediately in order to compel me enough to purchase. The last time I bought something on release day was the debut of the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. I personally don’t like having to fight to buy something, so I’d rather just wait and see if it’s worth getting. There are times, however, where I see something I really want, and dammit, I’m going to get it. Obviously this KKW x Kylie Cosmetics collection caught my eye, and so I ordered it on…

A Beauty Wishlist

Since I’ve put myself on a strict spending budget, I thought it would be a fun idea to make a beauty wishlist I can slowly chip away at whenever I’m ready to give myself a “splurge allowance” (which probably won’t be for awhile if we’re being honest…) Regardless, these are all things that I’ve wanted to try based on ads I’ve seen or raving reviews by beauty influencers. Benefit Gimme Brow ($24) I’m not ashamed to say that my brows could use a little help once in awhile. They’re a little difficult to work with because they’re feisty little devils, so anything…
