Wishlist Wednesday: Blush Pink

I finally was bit with the #tumblrpink aesthetic bug that every brand is putting out lately, and am in the process of replacing everything in my life with this color. (Jk kinda) Just looking around me as I write this, I’d love to have a magic color changing wand like the fairies in Sleeping Beauty to wave at my white mug, navy Longchamp, my black planner, and my nails. Everything looks better pink! I’ll probably be over this and back to my neutrals, dark, and earthy colors when fall comes back around, but for now I’m shopping everything pink. It works surprisingly well as a neutral I have come to find out. I love doing these wishlist posts because they satisfy my shopping mood without actually spending anything.

Amazon Fashion & Fitness Favorites

Happy Monday! We all know that fashion trends come and go, so if I like something name brand that is out of my budget, I search the internet for a dupe instead of buying the real thing. The trick is to just type in a description of what you want instead of the name of the shoe. “Western ankle bootie” is an example. Some of these products are shipped from out of the country and take a bit longer to arrive, but they are worth the wait!  There are a few benefits to using Amazon rather than other retailers:

 

  1. Amazon is great because some name brand products are on there for a lower price, rather than getting it from another store and paying the markup.
  2. Around the holiday season, Amazon fashion has tons of coupon codes and lowered prices.
  3. Using Amazon’s checkout process for payment and shipping information is easier than at a website or store you aren’t familiar with.
  4. Prime delivery!

 

Prices and stock varies on Amazon so bear with me on some of these links.

March 2017 Favorites

Facetune

I have lots of favorites this month due to the fact that the season is changing and Spring is here! Check out my March 2017 favorites.

Beauty

 

Facetune

Too Faced Pink Leopard Blushing Bronzer / There’s a part of me that can’t help but love Too Faced cutesy packaging. Many of their products are quite gimmicky, and I thought this was going to be one of them. Once I finally swatched it though, I decided to purchase it from Sephora. I like to use it as blush or swirl it all over my face to give myself a glow and blend my makeup.

February 2017 Favorites

Hi everyone! This February has been a good one. I hope you had a good Valentines day, whether single or in a relationship.  It’s been an exciting time to start seeing all the new products that makeup and fashion brands come out with for spring and summer. Something about this time of year always gets me in trouble and makes me want to buy shoes… is anyone else like that? Anyway, keep reading to hear my favorites from this past month.

Latest Beauty & Style Purchases

Hello!  Recently my work weeks have felt extra long, and my shopping bug tends to kick in on slow afternoons. Spring is coming approaching, and I “need” some fun transition pieces to kick up my wardrobe. I thought it would be fun to share the purchases that I have ordered in the past few weeks. Looking at them now, I basically picked out a whole outfit without the intention of doing so.  Keep reading to hear all about how I justify beauty and fashion items >.<

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.

Go To Shoes Lately | Fall & Winter 2016

Shoes are my weakness.  I can always justify a cute new pair of boots, booties, or comfortable sneakers. Today I wanted to show the shoes I have been wearing nonstop for the past few months.

The first category is my personal favorite- comfy! I have a job where I wake up extremely early and pick out a casual outfit (I feel lucky that I get to wear jeans/ leggings!), so these are the pairs of shoes I have been reaching for every day. Pretty much my go to outfit is a cool pair of shoes, black leggings, tshirt, and long baggy sweater or cardigan.

Wednesday Wishlist | My Christmas List

Today’s post is the Christmas list I sent out to my family this year. I mostly made this just for fun since my parents already support me in a lot of ways and don’t listen to my ideas of good gifts. I love them but they like to do things their own way and probably didn’t even open the PDF of the cute collage I made.  When I spoke to my mom on the phone yesterday she asked me to print it. … They live out in the country and don’t shop online so if it’s not at Target/ Old Navy/ Walmart, I’m not going to get it.  Throughout this year I may buy some of these items myself or use Christmas gift money on them.
