makeup haul

Hi loves! So this morning I decided to make a major makeup shopping trip. All of my makeup was running out, dirty, and literally falling apart. My Naked palette had missing eyeshadows and basically one thread to it's brush. I had to pump out pasty concealer and take leftovers from the tip of the bottle. Basically, it was a real mess. And, since I'm trying to make some wise and life-changing decisions nowadays, I decided to trek to Sephora and correct the problem. Without further ado, here are the staple items I bought!

Items: Nars bronzer in Casino. Dior mascara in 090. Sephora eyeshadow color Red Carpet. Milk lipstick in shade Cream.



Items: Kat-Von-D lock it concealer in light 18. Mini Urban Decay basics palette. Urban Decay Naked skin foundation in 1.5. Nude Stix concealer pencil (I use as highlighter) in shade light 1. Sephora brow filler in light.
Alright babes, that's it! I know this is short but I wanted to keep it simple & sweet. My normal makeup routine for school consists of concealer, foundation, light eyeshadow, bronzer, mascara, and chapstick. But hopefully I can amp it up a little bit and just feel a lot cleaner. Maybe it's just me but getting new makeup makes me feel fresh and clean...does anyone else feel this way? Hahahaha

spring essentials





























Hi my loves!! I wanted to do an updated Spring Essentials because I haven't done an essentials in what it feels like for a while and I seriously apologize. But HERE I AM :-) I don't want to discuss these too much only because I have something (hopefully) planned for this weekend where I'm going to discuss trends/my personal favorite essentials in my wardrobe. So here's the sum up:

Essentials for Spring 2016: Denim. And I mean tons of denim (frayed, cropped, etc.) Loafers. Chokers. Silk neck ties. Silk nightgowns worn during the day (yes). Striped button ups/white button ups. Adidas. Anything with stars. Wedgie jeans. Off-the-shoulder denim & striped tops. Cat-eye sunglasses. Those extremely popular B-Belts that won't go away anytime soon. Staple bag (which I might splurge on soon but I really don't know. For now I will buy knock-offs at Zara).

And there you go!! I hope you like and this gives you some inspiration for this spring. Just think a lot of clean cut lines, lots of layered jewels and accessories, a bit of a prep, and a bit of sporty...oh, and anything from Realisation Par or Reformation or any other amazing clothing brands that happen to start with R. That's what I'm going for anyway. If you want to know where the pieces are from up there click here and hover over the piece.

Here are some more outfits I created that are inspiring me right now...

PS. Tell me which trend/outfit is your personal favorite! I'd love to know

Xoxo,
