July 2017 Favorites

IMG_0500July being over means it is one step closer to fall!  I’m already burning Bath & Body Works candles (Warm Vanilla Sugar at the moment) and ready to stop jacking up my electricity bill with the AC blasting. I’ll start with the beauty products I’ve been loving this month.

June 2017 Favorites

It’s about to be July which means I’m currently in the process of prepping for my bday. That means I’m in full “pamper” mode- face masks, fresh red hair dye, applying self tanner nonstop, cleaning my apartment, and buying too many outfit options for going out. I can’t wait to do my birthday makeup post once I figure out what look to do! Here’s everything I’ve been loving at the moment-

Nyx Control Freak Brow Gel / This is the most important favorite of the month for me. Adding Nyx Control Freak over mascara after it’s about 90% dry makes it not smudge. More on that here.

2017 Birthday Beauty Wishlist Vol.2

Had to do another wish list because my friends and family are starting to ask me what I want- my 26th birthday is this Sunday July 2nd.  I can’t wait to celebrate and do makeup together with my friends this Saturday!  I actually did another one of these already for this year that you can read here.

Glossier Balm Dot Com Birthday edition / I’m halfway through my mint version of this amazing lip balm and the idea of a bday edition is adorable. It even smells like cake!

May 2017 Favorites

Every time June comes around I feel weird about it because it means I need to accept the fact that summer is here. I’m a cold weather person so I’m not really into it- I prefer to tan by foam rather than by pool, so I struggle to get excited about summer and higher temperatures. Thankfully I live in Oregon and I currently am writing this on a rainy day. Here are all the products I’ve been using to cope with the hotter season coming.

2017 Birthday Beauty Wishlist

This is my birthday wishlist. I’m extremely early (July 2nd is my 26th bday), but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared right? I’m not expecting to get any/ all of this stuff, but coming up with a list in the first place is half the fun for me. I’ll start with palettes. As a makeup obsessed person, I have way too many palettes and eyeshadow colors, but I always want more.  

2017 birthday wishlist

Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts Palette / I am so curious about how the formula of these perform, and I like the color combination. I’ve heard you can’t beat the purple in this, and I get a ton of use out of oranges.

Long Hair Hot Rolling Tips & Tricks

If you haven’t tried hot rollers yet, let me tell you why they are amazing.  If you struggle with getting volume or are on ~3rd day blah limp hair, hot rollers can save the day without having to go through the washing process. They give bouncy volume like that of a fresh blowout.  I tried a set of hot rollers the summer after my senior year of highschool (2009) that I was gifted, and I liked how they gave my hair volume. I didn’t know how to apply them though, and I looked like Shirley Temple.

April 2017 Favorites

Happy May! April was full of goodies for me. I think I’m mentioning like four pairs of shoes, so don’t read the Style section if you are trying to save money. 🙂 Sorry for not posting much last week, I had a little medical emergency where my thumb got in the way of a kitchen knife at the beginning of the week, then I headed out on vacation.

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.
