BeautyReal Techniques Contour Brush

Immediately when I saw the Bold Metals collection from Real Techniques, I knew I had to try out a brush or two. This one stood out to me the most. Whether it was because of the unique shape or my obsession with contouring, I’m unsure, but I absolutely adore this brush. Like all the brushes in the collection, it is incredibly soft and applies product so well.

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Blush

I’ve heard about this line of blushes for a long time now, but it wasn’t until I realized that almost all of my favorite blushes had shattered that I thought about picking one up. The shade is hands down my favorite blush shade I’ve ever owned. It’s incredibly subtle and natural, and I have yet to find an eye or lip look that it can’t be paired with.

NYX Tiramisu Butter Gloss

If you have been a long-time follower of my blog, you would be well aware of my obsession with these things. Throughout the colder months, I stick more to my lip balm, so I recently reached for this gloss again. Needless to say, I’m in love. The formula and color are just so perfect, and I will never stop repurchasing it.

Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Liner

I recently went to Ulta to pick up my absolute favorite liner from Stila, but they were completely sold out. After sitting on my phone, looking through reviews of liquid eye liners, I came across this one. I adore the 24/7 eye pencils, so I thought I would give this one a shot. The formula and applicator definitely took some getting used to, but I absolutely love this eyeliner.

A Little Chat.

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

Blush (1 of 1)-3It’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything, so, instead of picking up with another outfit post, I just wanted to chat a little bit. A lot of the reason why my posting schedule has been pretty crazy is just because, during this time of the year, cheerleading consumes my time, especially now that it’s the end of my last season. Within the next two weeks, the season will be over and my posts will go back to normal.

There are a few other things I want to address. First off, if you haven’t noticed, I finally switched to the Disqus comment system. I have been needing to do so for so long and hopefully it will make leaving comments a little bit easier on both parties.

I also want to bring up a few changes to my blog. Up until this point, this blog has been a way for me to document my personal style. After blogging for over a year and a half now, I want to change things up a little bit and blog about really anything that inspires me. While my outfit posts aren’t going anywhere, I may throw in some lifestyle and other kinds of posts as well.

Thank you for all your continued support on my blog, and I can’t wait to produce more frequent and better quality content.

Winter Essentials.

Friday, January 30th, 2015

WE 3 (1 of 1)Happy Friday! With the last few days of January coming to a close, I decided to reflect on some of my favorite pieces from this season. Beyond my leather jacket and black jeans, I’ve discovered a few new staples in my wardrobe. Firstly, I’ve developed a new love for turtlenecks. I’ve always had a few in my closet, but this grey one is so simple and such a great layering piece. My lace bralette has also been a great layering piece; my favorite being with my white blouse. Of course, I had to include my black, chelsea boots because I wear them with absolutely everything, and I don’t know how I lived without them. Finally, my adorable backpack, which you may have seen in my last post (click here to see). Backpacks are such casual, easy bags, and I’m definitely going to be carrying it with me into the warmer months.
