One Stop Outfit

Happy Friday lovelies! I cannot believe that it is already April 21st…Didn’t April JUST get here?

Last weekend my family visited me for Easter and we got to do a lot together, including shopping! I always love to take people to the Bentonville square because I think it is the coolest and cutest thing. I wanted to stop by my favorite boutique there called Elysian to look for a last-minute Easter dress (it was Saturday). I was so excited to see their new location, it’s beautiful! If you live in Northwest Arkansas, you should check them out. They have wonderful, unique items for a great price!

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a special Easter weekend. I most certainly did! My family came to visit me and we had a blast. I love having a reason to celebrate with my loved ones. 

About a month ago I received the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer complimentary from Influenster for reviewing purposes! I love having this opportunity to be able to share right here on my blog. If you have been wanting to try a new, all-encompassing foundation primer, keep reading 🙂

Warby Parker Haskell-Flash Sunglass Launch

Hello everyone! I hope you have had a great start to your week. It seems like the weather is getting nicer and summer is quickly approaching!

Today Warby Parker launches their new sunglasses line, taking a twist on their classic Haskell frame! If you use Warby Parker, whether its for sunglasses or eyeglasses, you know they seek to satisfy and meet the needs of their customers! I fortunately don’t have to wear eyeglasses quite yet but plenty of my friends do and I know they love getting to test out the Warby Parker glasses using their Home Try-on, where you pick frames that you like, sent all right to the comfort of your own home, you get to try them on, and decide which one you like best. How cool is that? 

This just gets me even more excited for their sunglasses launch today! Summer is just around the corner, and so is the need for more sunglasses…

Post-Vacation Depres–ENJOYMENT

Okay so I am not going to try and hide it and come out and say I definitely had post-vacation depression Friday and Saturday after coming back from the most lovely coast in America. (not serious clinical depression but I was bummed, which is out of the ordinary for me) There is no way to express how much I adore the west coast, its mountains, its rocks, its people, its cities, its weather, its vibes. It calls my name. It felt completely unreal. Ever since I visited Oregon in 2012, the west coast has all been a dream to me. I dream about it all the time. I crave for it as I double tap the PNW photos scrolling through my Instagram. So when I was finally able to live that life again.. I swore I was in a dream. I was. But it was real life. It reminded me of the wonderful things that are ahead. Continue reading

Beauty Products I’ve Loved in 2 Months

Happy March everyone!

2017 has been off to a good start for me. New Year’s Resolutions not staying very strong but I’m constantly reminding myself that starting back up is considered progress! I’m learning a lot about myself, loving myself more, and working on me. 

How are y’all’s New Year’s Resolutions going? Did you already forget about them? I’ve had to write my goals and reminders up on my wall in my room to look at every time I walk out of the room. That way I don’t forget: who I am, whose I am, and who I want to be. Maybe a Post-It could help you too?

Well considering that it is already March and we have already completed 1/6 of 2017, I have a few trusty products I’ve learned to love and wanted to share with y’all! Keep reading for more info:

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

1. Living Proof Perfect hair Day fresh cut split end mender – I have loved this with an everlasting love since this time last year. I have purchased it twice now. This stuff literally mends your split ends in seconds. Read up on it in that link. Living proof has been my hair’s best friend for a year now. I guess it’s our anniversary? Also, if you are wanting your hair to grow ASAP (like me), this stuff WILL DO IT. Guys, my hair has grown so many inches SO fast without me needing a hair cut. I don’t remember the last time I got a hair cut? Living proof says this is best used in-between cuts. So I’ll be getting a trim soon, don’t worry. You can use it on wet or dry hair but with my experience, it works best on wet hair, before primer!

  • Also, side note: just found out that Living Proof has automatic delivery :O

2. OUAI Haircare Wave Spray – I got this in my Ipsy bag and it works as a texture spray. It smells amazing and works great to give your hair volume and texture! I love using it after styling my hair. Loving this brand!

3. Tarteist PRO Amazonian Clay Palette – This is a matte (+ 4 shimmer) eye shadow palette by Tarte that smells like heaven. I love using this stuff. It is SO pigmented and I love mattes and it applies so well. Everyone loves it. I got it for Christmas and I am so thankful for it! These shades go for everyday and for dramatic looks. Get it if you’re looking for a matte eye shadow palette. You won’t regret it.

4. Colour Pop Ultra Matte (Beeper) and Ultra Satin (Magic Wand) Liquid Lipsticks – I first purchased Colour Pop’s Ultra Satin Lip when I wanted one of Kathleen Lights’s videos and loved her lip color. It’s so affordable and you get $5 off your first purchase. I’ve loved it and wanted to purchase another and my friends Jenna wore Beeper one day and I loved it so much I had to get it. Both of these lippes are so pigmented and stay on through THICK & THIN. They are not drying at all. They’re incredible. Please buy 10. The Ultra Satin is like a matte with a shine and the matte, of course, is all matte. Better than lipliner. 

5. Clinique Deep Comfort Hand and Cuticle Cream – so lately my hands have been getting CRAZY dry and cracking and bleeding and I knew I needed someting concentrated and serious. Nothing with a fragrance and something special for my hands and cuticles. My cuticles were getting so bad too. I work at the Clinique on campus and decided to purchase this. It is a perfect size to carry around everywhere with me in my purse and this stuff feels SO great, better than any other cream I tried. It relieved and healed my hands and cuticles, seriously. 

6. Real Techniques Brushes (Shade + Blend, Setting) – I hit these up at Ulta when they had the buy one get one FREE Real Techniques brushes and NYX face and eye makeup. The two purple ones (Shade + Blend) came in a pack then the Setting in a separate pack. I had wanted another eye shadow basic brush since I’ve had my e.l.f. one forever and I wanted a larger, more dense shader brush so this came in so clutch. I had to get another one for free so I chose the small setting brush which I’ve also wanted to try. Guys, please go buy these now because they are INCREDIBLE. These are some of the best brushes I’ve used in my life. I love the grip on them and the brushes are so soft and work so easily. 

I hope y’all enjoyed these reviews and hope this helps any of you who were thinking about purchasing these items. As always, feel free to comment and ask any questions. 

I hope you all have a fabulous rest of your week. Enjoy your second week in March, spring is almost here!
