My Sephora Sale Haul | SPRING 2017

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

It’s that time of year! For this post I’m breaking down each item that I purchased during the bi-annual 15% off Sephora VIB rouge sale. There are some things I have been waiting for this sale to purchase and some that were more like irresponsible off the cuff splurge decisions.

 

 

MAKE UP FOR EVER Brow Liner / I picked this up in the color Brown 30 after seeing it recommended by Polina (PBBunny) on Youtube. I can already say it is fabulous. It’s literally a liquid liner to do your brows with, which sounds terrifying, but works. It makes perfect hair brush strokes and blends out well with a spoolie.

Pale Pink Inspired Makeup & Lip Combo I Love

 

Lately I’ve been in love with the color light pink. I don’t usually find myself drawn to this girly color, but something about is so pretty for spring and just looking at it makes me happy. My makeup was inspired by this and I incorporated light pink by adding rosey crease shades, Urban Decay’s duochrome pinky peach shadow Fireball on the lid, topped with Stila Dusty Rose Magnificent Metals shadow.  I feel like I’m describing some kind of dessert I came up with… but I love how this turned out! I haven’t loved my makeup this much in quite awhile, and washing it off was a bit of a bummer.  Read the rest of this entry »

Trying New Hair Care Products

Hair products are something I don’t try out extremely often because I find that it takes SO long to use them up. I don’t do a lot of styling unless I’m going out, so my routine usually just consists of shampoo, conditioner, leave in stuff of some kind, and dry shampoo as the week goes on. However, recently I have picked up some great new products that I will be incorporating step up my hair care routine for spring and summer.

Ulta Hair Treatment Service Review

This past Friday I headed over to Ulta on my lunch break after booking an appointment for a hair treatment. I knew they had a salon in the back, but had never checked out their services until my coworker told me that she loves their hair treatments.  I had some extra time and an after hours work event to go to. My hair was on dry shampoo day and I didn’t feel like washing it, so I booked the “clarifying treatment” on their website. There were only two options (neither of which sounded like the one my coworker had) so I picked this one with the intention of asking the stylist for a deep conditioning treatment.

Pre-Travel Pamper Routine | Skin & Hair

img_2024To procrastinate packing for the business trip I’m leaving for tomorrow, I’m having a pamper day.  This will be the third time I am heading out to this business trip- it’s our yearly kick off meeting, and it’s definitely a dressy event. I’m used to wearing casual outfits for work, so dressing up in a blazer and heels is a little out of my comfort zone. To boost my confidence, I have a pamper routine that helps me look nice and put together. When I travel anywhere, I like to look my very best when I arrive, so I have a couple steps that I like to set aside time for:

December 2016 Favorites

Happy 2017! For December I have a long list of makeup, fashion, and random items to share that were my favorites.  December is a great month for me because it means time off work and nights spent with family and friends.  Now that it’s January I’m looking forward to watching new seasons of Bachelor and Teen Mom 2. I can’t help but love a little bit of trashy reality TV! I’m switching it up this month by starting with the random category.  The grand finale will be the good stuff- beauty products.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 presetProcessed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Happy post- holidays!  I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas/ Hanukah/ anything you choose to celebrate. I spent Christmas Eve with my family and boyfriend’s family snacking, drinking my favorite IPAs, playing that LOLz game, then Christmas Day being lazy and continuing the leftovers snack fest at my apartment with my cat Prince. The best gift was spending the evening with the people I love, but I also received some fabulous gifts that are right up my alley- beauty products. Below are the items I am enjoying from this Christmas.
