BEST PRODUCTS!

Hello Beauties!

Guys these products are amazing! No lies, no jokes, just truth. I’ve repurchased all of these at LEAST once, but most are on their 3rd or 4th replacement, which says a lot coming from the girl who can’t settle down with anything (hence being single). Jokes. But seriously, read carefully to this post, and tell me what your life-changing product is in the comments below!

Batiste Dry Shampoo: I think it’s a brilliantly smart idea to get colored dry shampoo. Why live with clumps of white product in your hair!? It looks like dandruff, why do you want that? That’s no good. No good at all. Unless you’re blonde, then it just kinda blends in.

You want smooth/frizzless hair? Look no further! I actually use this as a leave in conditioner and it is SO GOOD. Matrix outdid itself with this one! And the packaging looks great, doesn’t it? Plus it’s very affordable.

Many people overlook the need for a good deodorant. This is a serious problem, especially amongst 6th graders, which I learned from the lengthy discussions about B.O. in class. This Secret Deodorant definitely lasts through showers, workouts, swimming, and most definitely sweating! It will even last till the next morning, so there is no kidding around with this one. Plus, it smells like Paris.

I’ve talked about this product before and so has everyone else because it is so good. So good guys. Like guys, it is so good! Anyways, I’ve lately been using Simple’s Cleansing Micellar Water as a makeup remover at night and a cleanser in the morning, and I promise you it will deliver amazing results! French models use it. French. Models.

This is another miracle skincare product! Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Moisturizer is easily comparable to Clinique moisturizers but half the price. It makes your skin hydrated, refreshed, and isn’t greasy at all, so all you oily people can relax. I don’t think I’m ever going to use a different moisturizer!

Hello Beauties!

We all know that bohemian style is in right now, especially with music festivals like Coachella becoming more and more mainstream. I personally am so happy about it because that is the kind of clothing I’ve always loved: big turquoise pendants, oversized sunglasses, and super free clothing. That’s what you learn when you’re raised by rock n’ roll/hippie parents.

For the past couple of years one side of me has been pleased with the tight fit-and-flare dresses, small 60’s heels, and Parisian scarves. Now I’m loving the opportunity to wear dresses without a bra and bust out my mom’s old Birkenstocks.

I paired this dress with a leather backpack, which I haven’t put down all summer, and some comfortable leather sandals. I also made sure to pack some good sunglasses, and I kept all jewelry very simple and tasteful as to not distract from the dress.

Missing D.C.

This is blurry but it is the only one of me riding the carousel that I rode as a baby like every single day! Memories, am I right?

This used to be the hospital I was born in so YAY I’m such an American!

Hello Beauties!

I’ve been missing Washington D.C. so much lately, mostly because I’m going to be back there in a couple of weeks *YAY*. I’m pumped. Maybe you could tell, but you’re reading this so maybe you couldn’t. WHO KNOWS!?

*Side Note: Writing in all caps really grabs the reader’s attention.*

Anyways, I was feeling nostalgic (as per normal) so naturally I went through my old photos to find these beauties! They are beautiful because they aren’t blurry! *YAY* Thanks iPhone.

So I’m going to end this now, but keep reading every week for beauty, fashion, and random posts! Until next time…

Everyday Makeup Look |Summer Edition

Hello Beauties!

I’m loving this summer makeup look; it’s super simple and perfect for those hot summer days! I have a video below of the whole process that you can watch, but until then here is a list of products I used! Enjoy!

Nivea Lip Balm: This is a must have for every person! I apply it every morning and night for healthy lips!

Rimmel BB Cream: I love to use this cream during the summer when I don’t need a whole lot of coverage, but I still want a little something-something to brighten up my face.

Almay Clear Complexion Foundation: I generally use this as a concealer for any problem areas I’m having that day, but I make sure not to over do it since it has a slightly heavier coverage.

Rimmel Natural Bronzer (Waterproof): I never used bronzer before, but this summer I’m loving it! I also like that it’s waterproof, so there’s no need to worry about your glow fading throughout the day.

Maybelline FITME powder in 130: I’m all for a controlled natural look, so I’m a huge fan of this super light-weight setting powder. I just apply this in my T-zone to take away some of the shine.

Almay Shade Softies in Creme Brûlée: I just swiped this on my lids for something soft and simple.

Clinique Eyeshadow in Blushed: Contrary to the name, this blue eyeshadow is perfect to use as an eyeliner to brighten my face and add a little bit of color to this natural look!

E.L.F Lip Balm & Tint: It applies super easily and doesn’t fade! I added a little bit of lipgloss over it for an extra shine.

Pixi Moisturizing Setting Spray: It’s little bit more on the pricey side for a setting spray but this stuff is AMAZING! It really keeps your makeup in place all day.

Keep reading for more on beauty, fashion, and random parts of my life every single week!

Summertime Means Rompertime

DSC_0009OOTD 3 OOTD 2 OOTD Front

Hello Beauties! 

It’s here! Stores are advertising their best, and shortest, dresses, skirts, and ROMPERS! That’s right ladies and gentlemen, we have made it through the deadly winter and we have been given the ultimate reward: sun, pool days, and no pants. What could be better??

I actually grabbed this beauty off a cluttered rack in Plato’s Closet for about $12. When I realized that it was made by H&M, the deal was sweetened.

The back dips with a couple of criss-crossy things, making it a little bit more interesting. Plus, it has freaking pockets. People… it has POCKETS. Anyone stuck with  carrying money, tampons, keys, and a cell phone will understand my excitement about pockets.

Back to the back (haha joke), I’d advise wearing a bralette, much like the one I bought at Aerie! I don’t think I can go on enough about how much I adore this brand, so I will leave you to test them yourselves. Buy one of their bras. Maybe even a bralette. Get their underwear for goodness sakes! You will not be disappointed.

For accessories I could not resist to grab my favorite (and only; they’re expensive) TOPSHOP necklace. Wearing anything black is the perfect excuse to bust out a bright-coral, chain neck-piece. To go with the necklace, I chose my new Ulta matte lipstick in the shade 250, which is a bright pinky-coral, and then to add a little shimmer I dabbed my favorite Tarte lipgloss in the color flush on my bottom lip.

And for the grand finale, these knit Converse high-tops. Yes, they are knit. Yes, I adore them. I call them my “sweaters for feet”. I’m thinking about doing a week of just my favorite/slightly crazy shoes, because I have a few. These just added a very classic summer vibe to the whole outfit, but they are unique enough to safely bet that no one else would have them. Plus, white shoes make your legs look tan, so I enjoy those benefits!
