Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you some of my beauty favorites. I was a bit worried going into this blog post that I was going to be repeating myself from my last beauty favorites, but I have some new things that I haven’t talked about yet. I feel like this month was such a good month in terms of personal growth and new professional opportunities.

Okay now onto what you all are here for the beauty bits…

I definitely have a new affordable beauty palette as well as new favorite liquid lipsticks. As well as two health favorites that revolve around essential oils.

I am so in love with a good clean base and the Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme which gives you such a high coverage finish with very little product. I finally switched my mascara and boy this Covergirl Total Tease is Bomb.com Last but, not least I am digging these liquid lipsticks from Anastasia.

This Profusion mixed metals palette has quickly become one of my favorites everyday palette which gives me such a ample range of natural colors to choose from.

Can we talk about how important cleaning your face is and just taking care of your body in general. I recently added a few product that help me achieve this. The e.l.f hydrating water cleansing cloths are such a great affordable option to help me get rid of my makeup. I also have added a eye cream to my night routine which has surprisingly helped my under eyes.

The last two things are essential oily related. I have incorporated the thieves dental floss into my routine and I have been enjoying the way my teeth feel, weird thing to say I know! Last but not least I made my very first essential oil roller ball. I have been dealing with a lot more stress and I made a Calming roller for those day I need extra support.

What were some of your favorite beauty products for February? 

Have a great weekend and I will see you on Monday!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you some of my February favorites. For some reason this month felt longer even though it only has 29 days. I tried a bunch of new things this past month and a few of them made it onto my current favorites list which is exciting. Here is what I have been loving.

IMG_0528

Skincare was one of the places that I added some new favorites this month. I have already reviewed the Wet’n Wild Setting spray you can check it out here. I am in the process of reviewing the e.l.f illuminating eye cream, but so far i have enjoyed it.

IMG_0530

This month I have managed to get less sleep than what I am use to due to my new job. I have started using my trusty Erase Paste concealer again and this flat top stipple crown brush. I absolutely love this combination and how easy it makes this concealer to apply and blend.

IMG_0532

I have a new favorite blush it is this Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in fanciful. This blush gives me the most amazing natural yet perky cheek bones. I am also loving my eos lip balm in strawberry.

IMG_0535

IMG_0533

Last but not least I am obsessed with these small Altoids in wintergreen. These are the perfect size to pop into your mouth.

What are some of your favorites? Have you tried any that I have mentioned? 

Have a great day!

Happy Friday Everyone!

It’s that time of the month where I share with you some of the things I have been loving this month. I tried quite a few new products this month and I am so excited to have switched some of my beauty products to bring a bit a freshness into my routine. Overall this month was a short one and it brought quite a few challenges that I had to deal with, but I survived. Without further delay here are my favorite of the month.

IMG_9924

IMG_9930

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner 

This deep conditioner has been a staple of mine for quite some time now and I absolutely love that it’s super affordable and can be found in any local store. This product is one I have not been able to find a similar dupe for and honestly it would be hard to top this.

IMG_9929

Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipsticks in Berry-Light/Medium & Berry- Medium

These are a new discovery that have blown me away. I thought these were going to be a lower quality of the Revlon Lip butters, but they are a bit different and super easy to wear and one of my current favorites that I reach for.

IMG_9927

Milani Lipstick in Uptown Mauve & Plumrose

These are also a new discovery. Don’t ask me where I have been under a giant rock I swear! These are amazing lipsticks with great pigmentation. I love both of the colors I picked up because they are very appropriate for this winter weather we have been having.

IMG_9925

Tarte Tarlette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 HR Eyeshadow in Nude Pink

These two products have been on my eyelids all month long. I love applying the Maybelline Color Tattoo as a base for these eyeshadow they don’t crease and are great to mix with other shadows you already own. I am a huge fan of matte shades and this palette does not disappoint (Review on this palette coming soon).

IMG_9926

O.P.I Nail Polish in Red Me A Fortune Cookie  

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in True Love

Last but not least are these two products that have added a bit of change to my normal routine. This blush came in my POPSUGAR Must Have Box and I have been in love with it ever since. It works beautifully with your natural flush you get from this cold weather. Can we stop and admire this beautiful polish I have started to use again. This has always been a favorite but I have so many I rotate and forget how amazing some colors are. This is one I am so glad I reached for again.

Overal I loved everything I added to my beauty routine. It made this month so much more bare able and fun. I swear I am so ready for spring and a bit of warmth. Who else feels me?

What are some of your favorite products this past month?

See you all on Monday!

Every Day Products -February

I wanted to share with you all the products I have been reaching for the most for the month of February. Most of the products are drugstore finds with a few high end sprinkled on.

IMG_7028

I tend to be a routine type of person. If I really like the product I am using I will use it until I get tired of it. I tend to rotate my products every month of so for some variety. If I tend to be busy I grab for what I know works and will get me out of the door the fastest.
