I know that I can’t be the only one that loves a beautiful, classic, red lip this time of year. It’s so festive and speaks holiday time! The best part about wearing red lipstick is that it can be dressed up, (rocking a bold smokey eye, lashes to the heavens, and glitter upon glitter!). It can also be another casual Monday at the office kind of look (no eye shadow, natural and wispy lashes, and hair in a sleek bun).
Today I have gathered 10 of my top favorite red lipsticks to share with you. Most of these are super affordable and are at your local drug store. I hope that you enjoy this short yet informative post! I will be linking all of the lipsticks that I share with you down below.
I hope that you enjoyed this post; it was fun to share these products with you. If you have other red lip recommendations, please leave them in the comments! I am always looking to try out something new.
If you have a social media platform of any sort, then I’m almost certain that you’ve seen the trendy, natural wood watches that have been taking over the internet.
There’s something about a watch that can just tie an entire look together. It can make a girl feel empowered, stylish, and like she is on time, all at once. There’s nothing that I love more than being somewhere on time, (especially because I’m always late). I can show up looking and feeling like the Girl Boss that I am.
If you haven’t heard of Jord before, let me share a little bit of information with you. They are an amazing watch company that creates a unique timepiece made from natural wood. I know, incredible! Their minimalist watches are made for both men and woman, not to mention how stunning they are.
My watch of choice is the Frankie Purpleheart & Plum Watch, the wood is naturally purple, and is sourced from the Solomon Islands. It’s the perfect color and size for me. I am so in love with my watch, I am also in love with the fact that Jord has the option of personalized engraving and sizing. Did I mention free shipping?
Jord has so many different styles and types of wood to choose from. So go have a look and take your pick. One of these watches with the perfect engraving would make for the best gift. I haven’t even told you the best part, Jord is offering a $100 E-Gift Card Giveaway! You read that right, $100 off a watch of your choice. Everyone who enters will receive 10% off just for trying! Enter here for a chance to win!! Make sure that you are following Jord on Instagram, and while you are there, you might as well give your girl a follow.
I would like to thank Jord Watches for partnering with me on the blog post. You guys are incredible!
I cannot believe that November is here. This year went by so fast, it came with so many ups and downs. We will get into that topic in a whole other blog post.
Today’s blog post is going to be short and sweet. I wanted to share my cute OOTD for the fall weather. It’s officially time to bust out the booties. Ugh, I can’t get over this look. The boots are from Charlotte Russe, my jeans are from Torrid, and my top is from Lane Bryant. Did I mention that I have officially went down an entire pants size? Yea, that’s right!
As a plus size woman myself, I know how tough it can be to find clothes that fit in the right places. I have searched high and low for these stores and I am glad that I found them. Let’s jump in!
If you have been following me or my blog for some time now, then this should come as no surprise that Torrid is my first favorite store. They are a great company, I love the way all of their pieces fit my body, and they have so many different styles. Every time I walk into the store, the ladies all make me feel so welcome! I just can’t get enough, they are a little on the pricey side, but the quality is worth the money.
Some people don’t know this, but Charlotte Russe has an incredible plus size section! I always find all sorts of great pieces there, along with shoes, jewelry, and hats! Their pieces are more trendy and for those that are willing to wear off the shoulder tops. I also love the quality of their pieces.
Forever 21 Plus
This store must be everyone’s favorite store! The Forever 21 here in Bakersfield is huge! I can see why; they have amazing prices, they have soo many options, and they cater to so many different styles. I can find just about anything there. I am in love! Did I mention that they have an amazing price point? Oh, yes I did hehe.
Target has some amazing pieces that are very comfortable! I am in love with their plain T-shirts! They also have the most amazing dresses, so adorable! And who doesn’t love target?? Just the thought of eating popcorn while shopping gets me excited.
Ross Dress for Less
If you have a Ross, I strongly encourage you to stop in and check out what they have available. They have amazing prices, they have comfortable clothes, and also cater to so many different styles and sizes. I find items in there as low as two dollars. I love fashion, but I also love saving a buck or sixty if I can.
If you have made it to the end of this post, this I reward you with a virtual high five! Thank you for sticking around. If you have any recommendations for me, I would love to read them in the comments! I am always looking for new places to try!
My top is from Torrid and my jeans are Suzanne Betro.
Wait……. Why am I sorry? That person bumped into me.
Why did I just apologize for laughing? That person is laughing too.
I do this all of the time and if you don’t know what I am talking about, I am talking about the fact that I apologize for being me. I can’t help myself and it’s a very bad habit. I can’t be the only person that does this. I recently made a promise to myself that I am no longer going to apologize for being me. I’m going to start living my best life and stop second guessing myself. I’m going to laugh however I want, I’m going to walk freely, I’m going to smile if I want to. I have a right to be on this earth, just as much as anyone else. Apologizing for everything that I do is something that I do as an insecurity. If I apologize, that means that I am lesser than the person that I am apologizing to. I know that I am not any less than that person. I am a human being that has emotions, I am a human being that walks down a street, and I am a human being that compliments something that I like. If you are like me and apologize for something that you didn’t need to apologize for, I want you to stand with me and stop apologizing. Tell yourself that you’re allowed to laugh, you’re allowed to breathe, and you’re allowed to be yourself. Promise yourself that you are going to stop saying sorry for no reason.
I would like a friend of mine for inspiring this blog post (you know who you are).
To go along with that amazing foundation, I have been obsessed with the Ghost Baking Powder from Revolution. I bake every day and can’t get enough.
Lately, I have preferred glossy lips over matte. In my bag, I have the Pixi by Petra LipLift Max Lip Gloss in the shade Honey Sheen.
One product that I must mention is my Wet Brush. I don’t know what I would do without it. It gets all of the tangles out of my hair, without all of the ripping and damaging. I need four more for backup!
As for fashion, I have two pieces and they are both from Target.
The first piece is a backpack, I am so in love with it! Everything from the storage space all the way down to the color! It is the Woman’s Foldover Faux Leather Backpack. It is just stunning.
Lastly, I have the cutest shoes to share with you! They are the Women’s Alloy Slip-On Sneaker. They have the cutest bow, they’re black, and they go with anything!! Enough said.
I hope that you enjoyed this Friday Favorites! There will be more to come.
For those of you that don’t believe that dreams can come true, I am living proof. I have always dreamed of a collaboration with Torrid and now here I am! This look is all from Torrid! From the watch to the shoes!
