Insta Haul

Obsessed with these pieces. I know for sure that I will get a lot of use out of them because they are classic and basic but they all have a fun texture, style and color to the point where they are wearable for every day.

H&M

Red loose sweater – So if you all read my last blog post then you know this was on my wishlist. When I saw it at H&M I grabbed it so fast and it was in my size, the last one. It was ment to be. The sweater is so soft and comfy. It is loose but true to size. It is going to look so cute with my high-waisted jeans and black faux leather skirt to add some fun texture. (Size small)

High-waist jeans – I have been on the hunt for the perfect high-waisted jeans. These are so comfy, they fit well, have a good stretch, make your booty look good and they are soft not rough. Definitely going back to buy more colors. (Size 6)

Forever 21

Lace up skirt – I couldn’t find the one I bought in the store but I did link a similar one. But I really love the lace up detail because it’s different and out of my comfort zone. Plus it is going to look cute with a tucked in sweater or shirt.

Faux leather mini skirt – I love the fit of this skirt. It hugs you in all the right places and it has a nice stretch to it as well. It’s not a super thick skirt but definitely breatheable. Faux leather skirt are perfect for casual to dressy looks. Can’t wait to wear mine with some sneakers or heels depending on where I go.

Camis – I used to wear camis in every color in high school just like that alone and I love pairing them under t-shirts as well. Now that I’m older I love the idea of wearing these tanks alone for a sexy look with a choker on. I got one in black and in white. I love to wear these tanks with strapless bras so it doesn’t look too casual of that makes any sense. I want the tanks to look dressed up.

Have any of you purchased anything from your wishlist? I still have a few things that I want for my fall wardrobe but what’s the point if the weather here don’t allow me to buy cold appropriate clothes. sad.

fashion, Wish List

H&M wishlist.

PhotoGrid_1506294229687

I don’t know about you all but I love to read/watch bloggers & youtubers wishlists. I especially love watching Lily Melrose wishlists everytime she posts them. So I think it would be fun to write a blog post and share with you all the things I’m interested in buying for the fall season. I hope you all enjoy this post and I would love to know what are some fashion pieces you are interested in buying.

Knit sweaters

Red loose knit sweater – I have been on the hunt for a sweater this color for so long. I walked into H&M about two weeks ago and I almost purchased a sweater in the same color but it was $30. My sister convinced I would come across a little more affordable one soon….well I think this one is it.

Mustard knit sweater – This sweater and color will look so good with any colored pants, the warm tone ia what makes it super wearable with any pants you own in your closet. Also I can see myself wearing this sweater with my cropped leather jacket I have from Zara.

Pants

Stovepipe pants – The pattern on these are so cute and on trend this season. The slim cut on these makes it much more easier to style with some edgy platforms to make the masculine pants look a little bit chic and girly.

Faux leather pants – Leather pants are hard to find especially a fit that will be good for your body. The slight tapered legs can bw very flattering on any body type. These will look cute with some black and white converse, the red knit sweater above and a cool jacket over it for a casual look.

Tops

Turtle neck top – Ok I love stripes, I’ve never met a stripe I didn’t like. This slightly loose top will be easy to tuck in into the faux leather pants above, a black brim hat, and some adorable metallic loafers for a parisian look.

Short mesh top – I love dark florals especially this one because of the purple it has in it. The sheer adds a bit of sexyness to this top. Just add a flirty bralette underneath and a cute leather skirt for a fun date night look.

Fun skirts

Short skirt – The stars on this skirt is such a fun little detail. My inner kid screams of excitement. Stars are a fun trend going on this fall and this skirt is perfect for all the trendy fashionistas.

Lace up skirt – This is such a amazing skirt. The lace-up trend is still standing strong and it’s here to stay. The lace-up detail gives this skirt a nice bad girl vibe.

Accessories

Hat – The captain & baker boy hat is everywhere this season and one of my favorite youtubers, Ashley Brooke rocks it so well.

Earrings – I don’t wear big, dangly earrings like I used to but these are so pretty. The color is so eye catching and makes a statement to a very basic outfit.

I hope you all enjoy this post and hopefully you all had a great weekend. What’s on your wishlist?

Waiting for fall.

Fall is upon us……finally. Where I live it was finally cool enough to wear a knit sweater. I wore this outfit for a errand I had to do (shopped for a upcoming fall giveaway). Since it wasn’t super cold I was also able to wear some ripped denim and some cute oxblood mules.

A little closer look. These shoes added a fun pop of color to this casual outfit. I can see myself wearing them with some black high-rise skinny jeans and a black mock neck bodysuit.

Covergirl Review.

PhotoGrid_1503609953211

Something I have mentioned here over and over again is that I love to try new foundations and mascara. I have seen a lot of beauty youtubers mention this mascara and foundation and for the most part everyone seems to love them. But like always, I’m always late to the bandwagon because I love to see and read reviews on makeup then I test it out for two weeks or a month. Now let’s get started and keep reading to find out my thoughts on these two products.

1. Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation.

PhotoGrid_1503608622279

This foundation lives up to it’s title, vitalist healthy elixir. It makes your skin look so healthy and fresh. It is very easy to glide onto the skin and very blendable. Since this foundation is contains antioxidants and vitamins it does smell like a skincare product but ai do not mind. It is full coverage and lightweight on the skin. All I add is two pumps to a damped ecotools sponge. You can pack up as much foundation and your skin wont feel heavy. I have dry skin to oily skin and this foundations lasts all long, at least for me it does. I wear the color Buff Beige.

This was taken last friday early in the morning in natural lighting. Now you can see that on the left I have no foundation and on the right I have foundation on and it makes your skin really look healthy and glowy. Right?

2. Covergirl Total Tease Mascara.

I really love this mascara this leaves your lashes nice and defined. The brush brushes your lashes evenly and makes them look nice and flirty. I love the brush has a tease comb at the end for some instant fun lift on the edges of your lashes. I really recommend this.

Thrift.

This past month I have been thrifting every week and I have found some amazing clothing pieces. I love finding clothes when they have the original tag intact or when I find something still in good condition without the original tags. But overall I have been getting lucky. I have a lot of great tips that I have learned when it comes to thrifting that I know wi be helpful to you all who want to get into thrifting.

I did do a thrift haul on my sisters youtube channel, so all of you can see what I picked up over the past month. So go ahead and check it out and subscribe if you want to see more videos on my sisters channel. Thriftmeout is a fun channel about my sister showing her thrift finds and styling magazine & celebrity outfits off thrifting pieces, if that makes any sense to you all.

Ecotools review. (Brush set & Sponge)

IMG_20170705_125922_36320170705_154246

I have really been loving this eco tools brush set. The new look has a pale looking handle, softer bristles and a much more aesthetically pleasing look. The brushes pick up a lot of product which is a plus and for the price they are really good quality. My old set is still in good condition the bristles dont come off when you clean them.

The sponge doesnt soak up my foundation. This sponge is super easy to clean. It gets really big when damped.

The new and old brush so you can see the difference. I had the yellow (old) for about 4 years I believe.

Current favorites.

Hello everyone. Today I want to talk about my current favorites that I think all of you will enjoy. I have been using these three products for about a month trying to get a good use out of them so I can really explain how they really work. All these three products are really good and definitely will be re-purchasing.

E.l.f HD lifting concealer – This concealer is so good and it is only $3. Now the only negative I have about this product is that it only comes in three shades. I bought the lightest one in the shade light and as seen above it is a little dark for my skin tone. I still tested this product out and once I apllied it, it actually blended into my skin really well and covered up my dark circles. This concealer claims to minimize your fine lines and uplifts your under eye area which I totally agree, when I applied this I instantly saw my eyes look more open and youthful looking. I wish I took before and after pictures but if you want to see a photo let me know and I will post a picture on instagram or here on the blog. This concealer doesn’t crease up and it is very light weight on the skin and not heavy. The consistency feels really good. This concealer has vitamin c, green tea and mulberry for lifting and soothing benefits.

Wet n wild megaglo contouring palette – When I purchased this palette I wasn’t sure if I was going to love it because I have heard a lot of mixed reviews about it. This palette has been out for a while but I finally decided to take the plunge and buy it. Julia Havens on youtube raves about this on her channel so I gave in and I can see why she loves it. I have the shade Dulce De Leche and it is a perfect shade for me as a bronzer. I do not contour with it because I much prefer it as a bronzer. The highlight side I use as a setting powder and it is a perfect shade for me. The only two things I hate about this palette is 1, it is very powdery so you have to tap out the eccess and 2, it can be a little patchy and sometimes I have to blend for a while and make sure I use a good brush, which I use my eco tools powder brush to bronze up my face. I do want to purchase the shade caramel toffee as well but Target didn’t have it. I also love how silky the texture is when you swatch it.

Wet n wild 1 step wonder gel – I bought this nail polish at Target in the shade Coral support. I have been wearing this shade non-stop on my fingers and toes and get a lot of compliments on it. This shade is perfect for spring and summer. This polish dries fast and it doesn’t chip easily which is a plus.

I hope you all enjoy this post. Also thank you all for reading and supporting my blog.
