Favorite Skin Care & Lifestyle Products

Skin care is very important to me, (also white teeth). I am 25 now and am not getting any younger! I need to take care of my skin while I still can. These amazing products are helping me along the way.
  • Freeman Beauty Purifying avocado+oatmeal Clay Mask
  • ELF Illuminating Eye Cream
  • ELF Daily Hydration Moisturizer
  • Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Gel

These amazing, cleansing towelettes, have changed the way that I think of makeup removing wipes completely! I have repurchased them three times. Can you tell that I like them? 

Bath and Bodyworks can never do wrong in my eyes. I have been obsessed with these two scents ever since I purchased them about a month ago. They smell like Heaven!

Last, but certainly not least, this product is a game changer. I have a problem with really dry feet. It’s so bad that it hurts to walk sometimes. Ever since I have started using this product, my feet don’t hurt. They don’t crack, they just feel so much better. I am so in love.

Happy Monday!

You may not know this about me, but I am a nosy person. I love watching house tours, closet tours, and makeup storage videos. I love taking a look at someone else’s life to see how differently they do certain things. I might find something that I need in my life. This post is for that nosy person out there that is just like me. Wanting to know what someone else carries in their bag for Springtime!

 

  • Planner- If you don’t already know this about me, I am a planner junkie. I have a big one that I carry with my computer and this little one for appointments
  • A wallet is an obvious must. This cute little guy if from Target
  • Sunnies are perfect for the sunny days
  • Hand cream for the dry days
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Every day is a new day and in that case, I need a new lippy, that’s why I have options
  • Eye drops so that my allergies don’t kick my ass
  • Setting spray for when I need a cooldown or some fresh makeup
  • Hair tie, need I say more?

Quick and Easy Hairstyle

I always have those days where damaging and taking the time to do my hair, just doesn’t sound pleasing. Am I alone on this, or do you have those days too? For today’s post, I am sharing a simple and quick Hairstyle that will be perfect for any occasion. You can rock this look to the gym, a party, work, and even a date!

For this Hairstyle all that is needed is:

  • Some type of comb to split your hair into two parts
  • Some clear elastics
  • Topsy tail tool

You can purchase all of these items at your local drug store. 

  1. Part your hair into two parts down the middle, (like pigtails). Tie away the half of hair that you will be using later, and then the other half we are going to section a portion off. Take about a quarter of your hair and tie it with a clear elastic. 
  2. Now stick the topsy tail tool through the top of the section that is secured by the elastic.
  3. Pull the ponytail upward through the hoop of the topsy tail tool, and then pull the tool down through the pony to create the topsy tail. 
  4. After the first topsy tail is created, grab another section of hair while adding the first section, and continue. You can create as many sections as you would like. I usually do about four on each side. 
  5. Repeat on the other side, and there you have it!

This hairstyle takes less than three minutes to create!

I am not sure if it’s the double taps, or the fact that the layouts are so intriguing, but everyone seems to be infatuated Instagram (including myself). I am constantly on the popular page just looking for new accounts to stalk.

You really loved when I posted all about my favorite bloggers to follow, so I thought that I would do a spin off post from that. Today I have 10 Must Follow Instagram Accounts for you. If you already follow some of these people, we are that much closer to becoming besties.

4 Must Have Makeup Palettes

Happy Makeup Monday! I hope that your liner is winged to the gods and your lipstick is on point. Today I am sharing my four favorite makeup palettes that I can’t live without! They are perfect for fall and have a multi-purpose use!

  1. The Kay Von D Alchemist Highlight Pallet. This pallet is an intense highlighting one, but it is the perfect inner corner highlight for the eyes! It makes you look like your eyes are glowing.
  2. The Urban Decay Naked Heat Pallet. I’m sure that you have heard of this bad boy before, especially if you are a makeup lover like myself. This gorgeous pallet has all of the warm tone shadows that you will ever need for fall. It is seriously the best!
  3. The Morphe X Kathleen Lights Eyeshadow Pallet. This little baby is a dream come true. It has a nice mix between cool and warm tone shadows. So many different looks can be created with this pallet.
  4. The Tartelette in the Bloom Pallet. This little guy is your perfect everyday eyeshadow pallet, but if you have dark hair like me, a couple of these shades can double as eyebrow powders. I love a twofer!

You can never have enough makeup palettes!

Let me know if you would like to read a part two! I would be happy to post it for another Makeup Monday!! Let me know if you have any of these and which ones are your favs!

Stay Confident.
