IMG_9875

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my March Favorites. I have been testing quite a few new products and I am excited to share them with you. I feel like this month I had such a good routine going when it came to my skincare and makeup. I am really excited for spring to hopefully make an appearance this April. Is that too much to ask for a little bit of warm weather?

As you will see I have been trying out a few new products that are natural and good for your skin. They come from this small shop in Harrisonburg, VA. You can check them here if you want to learn more.

I’m currently trying out two new different makeup products from with simplicity and I have been enjoying the new additions to my makeup routine. I picked up their dry or wet eye shadow product in Latte and their mineral matte foundation.

I finally got around to painting my nails and picking up a new perfume which you can read more about here. I returned to my tried and true mascara from Maybelline the Colossal Volume’ Express Cat Eye edition. The last and final product that completely blew me away this month was the Black Radiance Perfect Tone Matte Lip Creme in Berry Naked.

Like I mentioned earlier I have been killing it with my skincare routine this month and I owe all of that to my new face wash from with simplicity. I also picked up the boscia no pores no shine T-zone treatment that has been helping me keep my T-zone shine free throughout the day. Last but not least I have been taking my eye makeup off with the Almay Eye Makeup Remover Pads these have been part of my routine for quite some time.

I hope you all enjoyed my March favorites and that you all have a great start to April. I’m excited to see what new adventures and things I discover this upcoming month.

What were some of your favorite products for March? Anything you would recommend me try out?

Have a great Friday! See you all on Monday.

February Favorites 2017

img_0633

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a few things I have been loving for the month of February. I feel like I blinked and this month was gone. Honestly I am not really enjoying how fast these past couple months have been going. I have so much to do before May and I am hoping that I can accomplish everything before graduation.

img_0631

This month I gravitated towards a variety of different products that helped me make February very productive month. When it comes to my makeup I want a no fuss look that can be transitioned based on how I feel each day.

This Becca Mineral Blush in Flowerchild is a product that instantly adds a healthy glow to my skin and makes me seem more awake than I actually am. I apply it with this realTechniques duo-fiber brush which keeps me from applying too much.

I have returned back to my this oldie but goodie, the covergirl Lashblast volume. My lashes cannot be happier. I absolutely love how this mascara is exactly the right formula for my lashes.

So I know that if you have been following me for a while on this blog you know that I have a healthy obsession with this lip product. This It Cosmetics CC+Lip Serum in love is such a beautiful color, and it’s also very hydrating without it being too sticky.

img_0638

This month I visited my local Tony Moly and picked up a few things and one of my favorite finds is this hand cream that has squirtle and I am obsessed. The formula is not sticky and soaks into your hands really quickly.

img_0635

Last but not least I finally replaced my old plain black band on my Fitbit Blaze and I am absolutely in love. This gold band looks so much more professional and a lot more classier than the one the Fitbit came with.

So I have a ton of new content coming your way! I had to take a break due to school, but get ready this month will be jammed packed with so much diverse content and I hope you come back and check it out.

What are some of your favorites for this month? Anything you are dying to recommend? 

Have a great day!

Current Fall Favorites

img_0060

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

First off  let me just say Happy Fall! I know it’s been a while since I last posted and I must apologize for being away, but so far this week I have managed to post two blog post up so that’s a start. Graduate school has been kicking my behind and I finally had sometime to type out a blog post. With that being said I wanted to share a few Fall favorites. Let it be put on record I contained myself from purchasing these items until about two weeks ago. I know I know I have the best self control (Just kidding!).

img_0059

Can we talk about how everyone goes crazy for Bath and Body Works Fall scents. I’m one of those people I just can’t help myself. I picked up a few Fall items that are making me extra happy. I’m all about making my hands smell amazing. The Golden Autumn Day Hand Cream,  the Coconut Pumpkin Latte Hand Soap, and Pocket Bac achieve just that.

img_0062

For beauty I have been enjoying these two new additions to my makeup collection. The BH Cosmetic Carly Bybel Eye shadow Palette screams fall. A surprising new love is the Hard Candy 21 Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Color.

Overall I am so excited for what is to come  in the next few months. I can’t wait to see all the leaves change and the temperature drop down past 80 degrees.

What are some of your favorite fall favorites?

Have a great day!

August Favorites 2016

img_9991

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a few of my favorite things that used in August. August is a special month for me because my entire family’s birthdays lands in the first 18 days of August. This August was different because I took two summer classes in June and July that August felt like a breath of fresh air with very little responsibilities and stress. I also started my new job and began my last year of graduate school.

All in all this past month has been anything but boring!

img_9989

Here is what I have been loving:

img_9992

This Aesthetica palette has been loved dearly and I love how versatile it is. As you can tell the banana shade has been used quite frequently. Let me say that this past month I have been loving using my Hourglass brow sculpting pencil to make sure my eyebrows look put together.

img_9994

So I recently looked through my makeup stash and found some goodies from my trip to London and I remembered why I fell in love with both of these products the minute I swatched them in Boots. This Bourgeois bronzer is absolutely one of my favorites to bring more color onto my face. This blush from Natura Lection is amazing for every day wear and I can’t say enough good things about this.

img_9995

I had talked about this Smashbox Primer Water a couple of months back and I absolutely love how hydrating it is to my skin. I have started to use this regularly and I love it. Last but not least I received this Coach perfume for my birthday and I am in love with how amazing it smells.

What were some of your favorite products for the month of August?

Have a great day!

July Favorites 2016

IMG_9872

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you some of my favorite beauty products for the month of July. I feel like Summer is flying by and it needs to slow down.

IMG_9873

IMG_9875

This Fleur De Force Palette in Lunar Rose has become a new love recently. It’s the perfect summer eye look.

IMG_9876

This lip combo is one of my favorites this past month. I absolutely love how this NYX Lingerie Liquid lipstick in Ruffle Trim looks on me. I make sure my lips are very well hydrated with the Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm.

IMG_9877

I finally tried a new mascara! I know I know I finally got rid off my Covergirl Clumpcrusher and tried something new. I am really impressed with this Essence get big lashes mascara and the price tag isn’t bad either.

IMG_9879

Last but not least I have been loving this super natural blush that had been hiding in my collection (I picked this up two years ago while I was in London). It’s the perfect hint of pink for every day wear. Also this is not beauty related, but I just wanted to share my new love for these three crystals. They are the perfect size to keep in your purse and pull out when you need to destress or ground yourself.

  What are some of your favorites for this past month?

Have a great day!

June Favotites 2016

IMG_9698

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my favorite products for the month of June. I know I’m a bit late but I didn’t want to skip sharing with you some of the things I had been loving last month.

IMG_9695

I don’t have that many exciting things to share but I had to share the new earrings I picked up and I figured this would be the best way to do so.

IMG_9708

I picked these bad boys up at Nordstrom Rack and they are from Bauble Bar. They were 50% off the regular price that Bauble Bar sold them for and I figured I couldn’t pass that up.

IMG_9713

I stuck to my same old makeup routine but added a new lip balm to my routine since my air conditioner keeps drying out my lips. I am still madly in love with the e.l.f illuminating eye cream it’s just a super hydrating eye cream and super affordable.

IMG_9711

I was feeling the nude nail trend this month and my go to for that is Essie’s All eyes on nudes from their cashmere matte collection.

IMG_9720

Last but not least I tried to keep my eye shadow very minimal and for that I love using the Wet n Wild shade in Nutty. It’s absolutely beautiful and creates a beautiful depth on my eyes that I can’t resist.

What were some of your June favorites? Any new products you would recommend?

Have a great day!
