Outfit of the Day #2

I live in Texas and even though it’s November it’s still 80 degrees outside(not that I’m complaining). In late November it will suddenly become extremely cold and will probably snow. As for right now It’s hard to do Fall fashion when it’s hot outside, so it’s kind of like fall on top and summer on the bottom. I also did a french braid on the left side of my hair.

fullsizeoutput_9d0fullsizeoutput_9d3I saw this car and immediately wanted to take a picture with it.

fullsizeoutput_9d6I took this at the mall and it was a little strange with all the people around, but it was fun seeing everyones reactions.

Outfit of the Day #1

fullsizeoutput_970It’s thankfully still warm where I live and I am going to enjoy the nice weather for as long as I can. Since it was so nice out my mum and I went to the parkway near my house and I took some photos.

fullsizeoutput_96dPretty much everything I wear is really comfortable and easy to move around in . Trying to jump up on things and moving around a lot doesn’t usually work very well in tight pants or dresses, unfortunately.

fullsizeoutput_965fullsizeoutput_99cfullsizeoutput_99dI had sooo much fun taking these pictures, but afterwards I just wanted to eat and go to sleep. I wore a hoodie from H&M that I got for Christmas, shorts that wear originally jeans, and boots from rue 21. I also decided to French braid my hair as it was really hot that day and I can’t stand my hair being in my face.

My Fall Essentials

fullsizeoutput_791Most of my fall essentials are just things to keep me warm as I hate the cold.  Though the cold is almost worth it when I get to see the trees change color, it’s unbelievably beautiful. This will be my first Fall and Winter to get colder than the 40s in about six years, so I’ll be hiding under under blankets for the next few weeks. I am loving Fall decoration and fashion though.

fullsizeoutput_794Makeup Essentials:

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation- I like to wear as little makeup as possible, but in the winter my skin looks red and just all around not great, so foundation is a must for me.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer- I use this for my under eyes and I absolutely love it. I don’t use it for my spots because it causes me to break out really badly, but other than that it’s an affordable concealer that works really well. The only bad thing about this product is they never have my shade at any of the stores that I go to, so I have to order it online if I want the right shade.

E.L.F. HD Setting Powder- When it’s cold outside I’m really bad about touching my face, so I need all the help I can get keeping my makeup in place.

 

fullsizeoutput_789Clothing:

Boots- Since it apparently snows where I’m living right now my usual canvas shoes aren’t going to cut it. I actually got these at Charles and Keith awhile back, but it was always so hot where I was I did not want to wear them, but now I get the chance to.

Scarfs and Sweaters- The more layers the better during fall. It just started getting cold where I live and I’m already wearing three layers every-time I go out.

Hoodie- I can’t stress enough how much I hate the cold, so anything to keep me warm will be a favorite of mine. I’m seriously considering getting an electric blanket.

Sweatpants- I currently only have one pair that I bought off amazon cause I had no warm clothing and I wear them constantly. I think it’s time to buy another pair.

 

fullsizeoutput_78efullsizeoutput_78dfullsizeoutput_790Other:

Face Masks- My skin gets really dry during fall and winter, so I try to give it extra attention this time of year.

Books- Most of my free time during fall is spent under lots of blankets, reading, and drinking something warm.

3 Easy Costume Ideas

Every year when October rolls around I come up with so many ideas for what costume I should wear and I can’t decide, so I end up throwing something together last minute.

 

Pirate: 

Makeup- Heavy eyeshadow, lots of mascara, paired with a matte lip.

Outfit- I used a scarf from H&M and tied it to make a top. I paired it with boots from Rue21 and a black skirt. For accessories I wore a necklace made from coins, a double stud earring with a cuff from hot topic, and a silver hoop earring. Pirate Pics 1fullsizeoutput_93bfullsizeoutput_9ef

 

A Unicorn:

Makeup- I went for a natural look. A bit of foundation to even out my skin and a pink lip.

Outfit- I bought a unicorn horn off Amazon, but you can purchase one almost anywhere. I wore a white dress, a chocker that my grandma Linda gave me and candles. If you live somewhere cold a white jacket and jeans look just as cute. 3 costume ideashalloween costume 13 Costume Ideas UnicornHalloween coustume 1.jpgfullsizeoutput_9f0

 

The Night: This is the easiest costume, but be prepared to answer the question what are you dressed as the whole night.

Makeup- Smokey eye, black lip, and anti highlight.

Outfit- Just wear all black. I wore black leggings, a hoodie, and paired it with a pair of black boots.last minute halloween costumes

My Summer Essentials

fullsizeoutput_4ebSummer has always been one of my favorite seasons. The warmth, getting to see friends, and I tend to travel more during the summer. I’ve traveled almost every summer since I was five and always loved it! I have so many great memories from summer and hopefully I’ll make some more this year. This is also my first summer as an adult(if I can be considered an adult). Is 18 an adult? I feel like at 18 you’re in-between being a teenager and an adult, but that’s not what this post is about, sorry I tend to ramble. Here are a few things I will be using constantly throughout this summer!

fullsizeoutput_4d8.jpegSwimsuits- I love spending my summer by the pool, so swimsuits are an obvious must

fullsizeoutput_4ecPolaroid Camera- I’m planning on taking lots of cute shots this summer!

fullsizeoutput_4e2IMG_5630fullsizeoutput_4e4CC or BB cream, E.L.F. concealer, and Too Faced Funfetti blush- These are great for creating a natural summer look

fullsizeoutput_4e0Sea-salt spray and Hair rings- Beach waves and braids are two of my favorite summer hairstyles and these just help achieve the perfect look

fullsizeoutput_4eefullsizeoutput_4dfsummer essentialsShorts, Flip flops, and Foot jewelry- I only recently started wearing four jewelry and now I’m obsessed with it. It’s the perfect accessory to complete my summer look. During the summer I practically live in shorts and flip flops are my go-to for when I’m heading to the pool.

fullsizeoutput_4e5fullsizeoutput_4e6Sunglasses- I have really sensitive eyes and without sunglasses I will spend the day squinting. I also just love sunglasses and probably have way to many pairs

fullsizeoutput_505Sunscreen and Sunhat’s- I burn extremely easily, so I try to be really careful, and make sure I have sun protection. Tanning doesn’t work for me, instead of getting a sun-kiss glow, I end up looking like a tomato threw up on me. Weather you burn easily or not sunscreen is a good idea.

Elf Product Review

fullsizeoutput_485fullsizeoutput_491I have tried a few e.l.f. products before, but I was at the drugstore and decided to test a few more out. E.l.f. has great prices, so if their products end up working well that would be a huge win. I did a review of one of their eyeshadow pallets here.fullsizeoutput_482fullsizeoutput_492fullsizeoutput_484Illuminating Palette: For the price this product isn’t bad, but it isn’t something I would reach for on daily basis. The highlight isn’t bad, but the palette doesn’t have great pigmentation. It looked nice, you just have to use more than you think to get it to show up well. fullsizeoutput_490Everyday Lash Collection: I didn’t like these falsies. I won’t pretend to be great at applying false lashes, but I could not get these to stay. No matter how much glue I put on it was not going to stay. I like the look of the lashes, just use a different eye lash glue. The pack came with two different eyelashes, but I only got the ones in the picture to work. They also come with a pair of tweezers to help you apply the lashes. fullsizeoutput_47dMolten Liquid eyeshadow: The color is actually really nice. I’m thinking about getting the gold one as well because I think it will be perfect for Christmas and winter in general. It blends really easily and keeps its color. I don’t use glittery eyeshadow often because I end up with it all over my face by the end of the day, but this stays in place while still giving you a little sparkle. I was worried that the eyeshadow wouldn’t blend well, but I had no problems. It blended easily and was buildable, probably my favorite product from this haul!fullsizeoutput_47cConcealer: I got this in ivory and was worried about the shade when I opened it. I almost didn’t try it because it looked to dark for my skin tone, but once I blended it, the color matched my skin really well. I’ve never used a concealer like this one before and I was pleasantly surprised. It has a creamy texture and blends easily. It hides blemishes well and it does help with dark circles though I like to using something lighter to brighten up under my eyes. I think I’ll be using this more often to cover up my blemishes. I’ll especially be using this during the summer as it looks really natural.fullsizeoutput_47aConcealer on left and liquid eyeshadow on the right

Easy DIY T-Shirts Perfect for Summer

fullsizeoutput_44dfullsizeoutput_44efullsizeoutput_458fullsizeoutput_457Summer is almost here! Here are a few DIY shirts to start off my summer posts!fullsizeoutput_12c

I have had this shirt for over a year and never wear it because it doesn’t lay right on me, so I decided to turn it into a crop top. The first step is deciding how long you want your shirt. Once you’ve decided on the length draw a line in pencil across the shirt, so you know where to cut(if you want to hym it leave an extra half inch).

fullsizeoutput_345fullsizeoutput_346

After you cut the shirt pull the bottom of the shirt to make the edges roll in and your done! A crop top perfect for summer.

fullsizeoutput_347IMG_2129

fullsizeoutput_12e

My friend visited last summer and we tie-dyed a ton of shirts. Having them all the same became old really quickly so I grabbed a pair of scissors and made a few adjustments. The first step is to cut off the bottom piece of the shirt, so it looks nicer at the end. Just like the other shirt measure how short you want it to be and draw a line in pencil. Once you know how long you want it lay in flat on the floor and start cutting strips from the bottom of the shirt to your line.

fullsizeoutput_1a2After you cut all the strips pull on them to give the shirt a nice look and your finished! The one tip I would give is if you have bigger boobs don’t cut the strips as high so it lays nicely.fullsizeoutput_1a3fullsizeoutput_49dfullsizeoutput_49f

fullsizeoutput_452To start lay your top flat and cut off the sleeves, collar, and the bottom line. Then cut to the length you want except for two triangles in the middle that will be used to tie the shirt. fullsizeoutput_451Tie the bottom and your finished! you now have the perfect top for summer. This one is probably my favorite, it turned out so cute, and I’ve never tired this style before so I was really pleased.fullsizeoutput_44fScreen Shot 2017-05-30 at 4.14.47 PM

My 5 Favorite Accessories

fullsizeoutput_3e3fullsizeoutput_3e1I almost always get ready last minute and end up running around trying to get out the door on time. In my hurry I often grab the same accessories, because their simple, and I know they go together. fullsizeoutput_3d9My favorite sunglasses are from H&M, I got them recently, and they suit my face shape really well. I’ve been wearing them constantly and somehow I haven’t scratched them yet.fullsizeoutput_3d8My grandma gave this purse to me for my birthday and whenever I don’t use a back pack I use this purse. It’s a bit small for everyday use because I carry so much junk around in my bag, but it’s good for most occasions. fullsizeoutput_3d7fullsizeoutput_3d5I don’t wear much jewelry, I just end up fiddling with it the whole time, but I will wear a bracelet or necklace from time to time. I got this chocker from hot topic when I was shopping with a friend and I got the bracelet from H&M while on a trip.fullsizeoutput_3e9Lastly the twill sneakers that are also from H&M. I love them! Their cute and I can still jump and move around comfortably. fullsizeoutput_3e2

Too Faced Fool For Love Review

fullsizeoutput_23cfullsizeoutput_23dfullsizeoutput_23eFool For Love is Too Faced limited collection that they released for April fools. The collection includes some special edition items and classics like their Better than Sex Mascara. I love too faced, their packaging and products are beautiful and everything that I’ve used from them has worked really well. The set includes Funfetti Love Flush blush, Funfetti Mocha Freeze Lip Gloss, a blush brush, and a travel sized Better Than Sex Mascara. The whole set only costs $30 and considering just the blush would usually cost $3o it is a really good deal. I’m saving up to move out so I try to find deals on, well everything, and I rarely buy makeup because how expensive it can get; of course this is a really good deal and this much makeup would usually cost about double.

fullsizeoutput_239fullsizeoutput_238I struggle with blush, it either looks to pink, to orange, or you just can’t see it, but this has a really nice pigmentation. You only need a little, it goes on without much effort, and it stayed on really well. It just gives a little color to my cheeks and a slight glow. It is easy to put to much on, so its best to start with a little and build it up if it’s not enough.

fullsizeoutput_24bI’m not entirely sure why they put a brush into the collection. The brush is cute, soft, and works ok. I probably won’t be using this brush except maybe when I travel.

fullsizeoutput_237fullsizeoutput_22eI have really small lips, so not many colors look good on me, this however did. It goes on really smoothly and since its a lip gloss the color was more faint then like a liquid lipstick. It is lipgloss so it won’t stay on as long as a lot of lip product, but you don’t have to reapply every few minutes, so it’s pretty good.

fullsizeoutput_242fullsizeoutput_24dThe mascara was absolutely incredible. Mascara is one of my favorite things in makeup and I’ve been wanting to try this one for about a year, it was definitely worth the wait! It goes on really easily and makes my lashes look full and longer. Another advantage is it’s actually black; a lot of mascara are like a brown or a grey, which can be nice, but just hasn’t been what I was looking for. I’ve been using maybelline’s lash sensational mascara as my everyday mascara, but it is harder to apply, so I might be switching to this. By the end of the day their was a bit of the mascara under my eyes, it lasted about six or seven hours, and I’m usually only out for about four so I’m really happy with it.

fullsizeoutput_245

When you make an online order you get two free samples so I got some foundation to see if I like it and some glitter glue.fullsizeoutput_232
