My Recent Purchases

Hello and Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having an awesome day today!

I recently purchased some makeup products online and I wanted to show you guys what I bought!

I usually never do online shopping, but my boyfriend was offering to buy me a couple of things so why not!

I was in need of a new eye liner since my old one dried out. I have always been a huge fan of all matte products, so of course I had to get a matte eye liner!

I decided to give the Nyx Matte liquid liner a try. This item was purchased for seven dollars! I have not used it yet, but I ‘m definitely planning on using it!

I’m not one to but expensive mascaras mostly because I’m a firm believer that my seven dollar The Colossal mascara by Maybelline, can do the job of any high end mascara, but I decided to give this mascara a try. This mascara is They’re Real by benefit cosmetics and it is an awesome mascara for anyone who loves length in their lashes, which I mean who doesn’t?

It also came with a mini mascara which I thought was pretty great considering how much beauty travel size products cost.

The retail price for this product was $36 dollars and I purchased this product for $24. I hope to have a full review on this product hopefully in the near future! Fingers crossed!

Last but not least, my favorite purchase! I purchased the Lancome Matter Shaker Liquid Lipstick. This product is totally new to me and I am so glad I purchased it!

I got the shade 262 called Sea, Sand and Sun. It is a pinkish/nudish matte color and it’s so cute!

This lipstick is a shaker, which means that in order to be able to get some of the product out you need to shake it.

I purchased this item for $22 dollars, which I know is pretty pricey for a lipstick but I was very curious as to how this product worked and the color is gorgeous!

I hope you guys enjoyed reading my post on my recent purchases! I hope you have a great day and make it a good one!

September Favorites

Hello and happy Saturday!

I hope everyone is having a great day!

I know I’m a little late with this post, but better late than never.

Today I wanted to write about my September favorites, as you can tell by the title!

So here are my September Favorites!

1.  Kate Spade New York Scatter Dot Large 17 Month 2017 Agenda

School has been really hectic these last couple of weeks and the one thing that has kept me from going insane with all the assignments is my Kate Spade planner! It is a 17 month large size agenda planner. Beginning with August 2016 and ending with the month of December 2017. It comes with monthly and weekly spread, which is what I use to keep myself organized. This has been by far my absolute favorite product this month!

This dry shampoo has been a life saver these last couple of weeks. It smells beautiful and does a great job of getting rid of all the oils. I actually received this sample size in the mail by Influenster and ever since I got it, it’s been amazing! Also, a little goes a long way with this product! I use this product every other day when I blow dry my hair or when I just want my hair to smell extra clean. I will admit though, that I dislike how it leaves my hair. It kind of leaves a residue in the sense that you can feel the product when you run your fingers through your hair, but other than that it is great!

I am a huge fan when it comes to the Neutrogena makeup removing wipes, but I am not a huge fan when it comes to their prices. I have found some awesome makeup removing wipes that can compete with these Neutrogena wipes and it won’t hurt your wallet! The Wondra cleansing wipes are great I especially love how affordable they are! They’ve been really handy and I am so glad I found this product!

3B37696F-9EAA-425B-BED4-E6E5E36C827A.jpg4. Benefit Cosmetics Foamingly Gentle Facial Wash

This facial wash has been my absolute favorite face wash this month. It’s by Benefit and the retail price is $22.00 and I know that might be a little pricey, but a little does go a long way! It smells so good and leaves your skin feeling so nice and clean!

Nyx matte lipstick 


Happy Wednesday!
I hope everyone is doing great! I just wanted to write a mini blog post on this gorgeous shade of matte lipstick from NYX.


It’s the perfect shade of pink! The color is Istanbul and the packaging/texture of the product is great! This lipstick can be purchased for about $6.50 at Ulta, Target or Walgreens.


I know fall is around the corner so most bright colors are pretty much out of the picture now, but I was in need of a bright pink shade!

I just wanted to post a little something on my recent purchase!

Favorite Products of the Month: August

Hello!

August has come to an end so that means summer is over and fall is around the corner! I especially love fall time because that means cozy/comfy outfits and scarfs!

I wanted to write a blog post on my favorite products for the month of August, so without further a do, here are my favorite products of this month.

IMG_0810.jpgIf you’ve read my previous post you’ll know that I received my first Influenster Voxbox and within that box I got many goodies. My favorite product would have to be the Vera Wang Embrace Rose buds & Vanilla perfume. It is very affordable and smells beautiful. It sort of has that clean/fresh scent which is what I think about when I think of summer.

I’ve always heard that you’re a shade darker in the summer. I didn’t believe it till this year, when I came to realize this hard way. I never realized that I was getting tanner as summer was approaching. I remember looking at myself and getting surprised because of how pale my foundation made me look. I decided that it was time to purchase a new foundation for the summer. I purchased my first Dior product! The Diorskin Nude Air Foundation. This found is amazing and I am so happy I purchased this product. It’s coverage is amazing and it smells beautifully. This product is definitely going to be one of my top favorites for quite a while.

The Mac lipstick ‘Shy Girl’ has been my go to for this whole month. It is a beautiful pinkish/nude creme sheen lipstick and goes perfect with anything. It’s not too over the top and not too natural its the perfect combination!

Whether I am doing a natural look or more of an intense look I always use my Hoola Bronzer Powder by Benefit. I especially love how this product comes with a mirror it is great to toss into your handbag or backpack for emergencies.

The Urban Decay Naked Powder Foundation has been a life saver especially since school has been on going. Whether I am doing a full face or just using the powder foundation it’s been my go to! It’s coverage is amazing, but it does not last long, so it but be reapplied every so often.

These are my favorite products for the month of August! I hope you have a great day and enjoy the week ahead!

Our Newest Addition to the Family!

6A05FBC2-46FA-467F-AA4A-4AAB2E7287F1.jpg

This week was one for the books!

We added a new member to the family and her name is Luna! She is a siamese cat and is only six weeks old. She’s so cute and has a bit of an attitude problem.

My sister actually received her as a gift from one of her friends about a week ago and she’s been nothing but adorable!

Luna hasn’t been getting along with our dog Lulu. She tends to get a bit jealous whenever we baby Luna, but we’re working on it.

This is just an appreciation post for our newest family member!
