Today’s look is a very personal one I created as a wish for next year that is so quickly approaching. I’m specifically referring to my love life. I wanted to channel what I want out of a relationship in 2019, and this is what I came up with. A darker, sultry and sparkly look that makes me feel happy when I look at it. This was such a therapeutic experience for me and I love the final product.

I hope this look inspires you to step out of the box when it comes to your holiday looks this year.
Welcome to winter Wednesdays on my corner of the internet. I am so excited for all of the awesome things I am going to share with you all this month. To start off I am talking about skincare and making sure your skin is protected.
I picked up this skincare kit at Target and it contains:
0.5 fl oz Sunday Riley GOOD GENES All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment
0.07oz SkinMedica TNS Eye Repair
0.5oz Lancer Skincare The Method: Polish
15g Tula Skincare Hydrating Day & Night Cream
1 fl oz DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
1 set Erna Laszlo Multi-Task Eye Serum Mask
100ml Bioderma Sensibio H2O
10ml Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50 (PA+++)
I wanted to highlight four products from this skin care collection that I completely feel in love with when I was trying this out.
This Deep Cleansing oil completely shocked me at how light weight it is. I was one of the most lightweight and cleansing oils I have ever used. No sticky residue and washes off with water like a dream.
These multi-task eye serum masks were such a cool experience because they were and instant fix to my puff eyes.
I focused on my eyes this particular pampering and I had to try out the This Eyes cream in this set. I loved how light this eye is and that it can be used twice a day.
I hope you all enjoyed this mini review and that you are taking some time to take care of your skin this holiday season.
Have a great weekend and I will see you on Monday!
Today I am sharing with you another makeup look that I created in the spirit of the holidays. I know most people gravitate towards the gold or silver holiday looks, but I wanted to spice it up and challenge myself with something a little bit differently.

I hope you all enjoyed this fun burgundy holiday look. I hope it inspired you to step out of the box this Holiday season.
I am so excited to kick off my Festive Fridays with this amazing recap of the Alexandria, VA Boat parade that is held in Old Town. My roommates and I scheduled a fun afternoon exploring shops and eating great local food as we waited for the annual boat parade. This was the perfect way to start the Holiday Season and I can’t wait for you all to see what else I have in store for you this whole month.
I would highly encourage you to check out your own local festivities in your surrounding areas.
Today kicks off my Makeup Mondays looks for this month and I am so excited to bring you some fun holiday looks that cater to all range of skills. I want you all to feel inspired and not overwhelmed by the content that I post. So, I am starting with a pretty neutral and wearable look for all my readers who want something easy and simple.
NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette
Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara
Jordan Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color in Rose Macaron
This look uses one palette and only three shades. You can build up the intensity if you wish, but it’s pretty simple and can be recreated with any neutral palette you may own.
I hope you all enjoyed this look and stay tune for the other more fun/playful looks I have for you all throughout the Fridays in December.
Today I am sharing with you all a new palette I picked up from Ulta. I feel like this particular palette would be great for the Holidays. The price point is $15 which makes it a great gift for the holidays and a nice little splurge for you.
This is the first time I have tested out any Morphe products. When I swatched the colors at Ulta they seemed to be really pigmented, which is a plus in my book.
Let me know if you have tried out any Morphe products before? Any ones you recommend I should check out?
Today I am sharing with you all three of my favorite fall palettes. Over the past two months I have been gravitating towards these three palettes to create my every day looks to more dressy and glam looks.
I love that no matter what your style is I have a palette suggestion for you. Whatever look you are trying to create I believe you can create it with either one of these beautiful palettes that I have been obsessed with.
The NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette is great for everyday wear. The colors can be used pretty much everyday and you still have the freedom of adding a bit of darkness to your look with the grey black shade that comes in the palette. If you don’t wear a ton of color I highly suggest this palette.
The Dose of Colors Desi X Katy Friendcation is one step up from the every day neutrals with a possibility for pops of color to make a appearance in your looks. The glitters in this palette are to die for. They can easily give you that POW you are wanting for those special occasions.
Today I am sharing a first impression on the Kylie Cosmetics 21st Birthday makeup collection she launched in August. I had never felt inclined to purchase a collection from her because I felt like the products weren’t something I would wear. When I looked up to see what all the fuzz was about with this new makeup collection I actually saw myself wearing the products, shocker. I ordered one of her bundles and waited patiently.
The Kylie Cosmetics by Kylie Jenner Birthday Collection Bundle includes:
Birthday Collection Pressed Powder Palette
Birthday Collection Rager Lipstick
Birthday Collection 6 pc. Mini Lip Set
Birthday Collection Twenty One Matte Lip Kit
Birthday Collection Eat Cake Glitter Eyes
Birthday Collection Champagne Showers Highlighter
Birthday Collection Cosmetic Bag
I am excited to try these new goodies out and create different fall inspired looks for you all. I am really excited about all of the liquid lipsticks that are going to transition perfectly for the Fall weather.
Do you own any Kylie Jenner Cosmetics? If so, what is your favorite product of hers?
Today I am sharing with you all a super easy DIY. It takes a few minutes to do, but transform this kid like peg board into something more chic. I picked this peg board from Target. It was only $3 from the dollar section and I knew I could spray paint this into something more modern.
I loved the way this simple DIY turned out all you really need is a can of spray paint in the color of your choosing and BAM you have a unique peg board custom to your style.
Please let me know if you enjoy these kinds of blog post so I can do more of them in the future.
What has been your favorite DIY that you have done?
The last two months have been consumed with packing, moving, quitting my second job and finding a balance with my life. I decided to take a step away from my blog and focus on actually living my life.
As always I try and document the major shifts in my life and this is one that I feel like I had to take a little bit longer to share. I finally started to put my room together and through I would share some snapshots of that process.
This marks my return to my blog and I feel excited for the new more mature content. I hope you all stick around and enjoy the this new chapter of my life and of my blog.
What are some new life changes you are currently experiencing?
