September Favorites

I can't believe September is already over and we are heading into October and then we'll blink and it will be the holidays! This part of the year seems to fly by always. September has been a busy month, full of apartment hunting, collaborations, and brunches! We finally found an apartment and we couldn't be more excited to move! I'll keep you all posted with all that fun on my IG stories :) I'm so excited for all the fun things October holds and I'll be sharing all the event on my blog and IG! For now here are all the things I've been loving in the month of September!


Beauty Products:

In September I've been playing with all kinds of fall colors and pulling out my richer tones. I've been living for the L'oreal Infalliable Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick, this is probably one of the most comfortable liquid lip I've ever tried! The product lasts all day through eating and drinking without ever re-applying! There's a great range of colors and they are perfect for this season! Another beauty favorite as always is colourpop, I've been obsessed with the "I Think I Love You" palette as well as the "Yes, Please!" palette both are great for everyday and can create tons of looks! One more essential that has been my go to this month is the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation! I love how it looks on my skin and doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything and they have tons of shades!


Skin Care Products:

Along with my products from last month these are some of my must have skin care products for this month. Formula 10.0.6 is one of my go to's for masks especially and I love the "Get your Glow On" peel off mask! Next up my favorite cream cleanser ever is from Aveeno, this one is my ride or die I use it every night before I got to bed to help keep my complexion blemish free and skin feeling clean! Finally for skin care I love the Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic To Go Pads these are great for everyday and especially great for travel! 


Fashion & Accessories:

I love rich tones for fall, plum, mustard, forest green, they just really scream fall! Old Navy as always is my go to they have tons of great fall looks right now with a variety of beautiful colors and pieces to choose from! Also my favorite earrings all month have been these simply gold oval hoops. I love gold for fall to go with all the warm tones so these are my favorite touch to any fall look! Next up is this stunning LC by Lauren Conrad bag from Kohl's. I again love the mustard color which is still a neutral for fall and the detail on the bag is perfection! Lastly, booties are a given for the fall season and Sonoma at Kohls always has the best ankle boots at killer prices! They go great with every look and are so easy to wear especially here in FL! 


Those are my September favorites! I hope you enjoyed and please let me know your favorite below! Anything I need to test out let me know!

Loving my Lash Extensions from Vampd

This past weekend I took a chance and tried out lash extensions! I love my natural lashes but love how they look even more when I wear falsies. Lash extensions are the perfect solution! If you want to look a little extra but still natural definitely look into lash extensions! They look way more natural than false lashes as well as they are totally safe for your natural lashes. 

I went to the girls at VAMPD to get my lash extensions and let me tell you the process is so worth it! The process takes about 2 hours as you are getting individual lashes placed along your natural lashes so that they look natural and blend in! These lash extensions last about 6-8 weeks and it's recommended to get weekly or bi weekly fills if you want to keep them up. 

I would highly suggest lash extensions if you are looking to make your lashes longer and thicker while still keeping them natural and beautiful looking. Also this is a great thing to do for special occasions as well. I'm recently engaged and already know I want these on my wedding day because they read stunning in photos. It's the best that you also don't need mascara or eye makeup they make you look so put together without trying, what more can you ask for?!

August Favorites!

Happy Labor Day Everyone! Hope you all are having a wonderful day whatever you are doing! I got together my favorite beauty products for the month of August to share with you all! These are products that I have used all month long and have become part of my basic routine. I'm including hair, skin care and makeup in this month's favorite for you but let me know if you would like to see all my favorites for everything in makeup. Also most of these products are super affordable and I will link everything for you!

For hair care this month, I've been loving this shampoo and conditioner combo from Garnier! My hair has never felt so healthy and smooth. The scent is amazing and the products leave your hair so shiny and smelling like coconut, not to mention these are affordable and can be found at Target and several other retailers. Shop these below!


DSC_0020.jpg

For skin care these have been my go to products lately! My skin is super sensitive so all these products are super gentle on the skin and constantly in reach. I use the cleanser, micellar water, and mosturizer everyday and change up the other products depending what my skin needs. Again super affordable products that are easy to find and are linking below for you!


DSC_0035.jpg

Next these two have been some of my favorite body products this month! I'm obsessed with the shea sugar scrub to exfoliate the skin! As well as the bath and body works ultra shea body cream in practically any scent. I have 3 of them all over the house, they are so creamy and luxurious, they are a must have!


DSC_0026.jpg

As for some of my favorites in the makeup department these are the stand outs this month! Colourpop has been killing it launching tons of new products so they are in here with a few things this month! I've been living for their setting and priming sprays, I can not do my makeup without them! Also the highlight palette is like no other and the price is right for 6 highlights! Next up for eyes I'm obsessed with the Jaclyn Hill Palette from Morphe! Jaclyn killed it with these shadows, its the one palette you need in your collection! My favorite blush this month has been the Kylie Cosmetics blush in the shade Barely Legal, it's the perfect tone for summer and will take me into fall, I love it! Finally these mascaras have been the best and the combo is everything you want! L'oreal's Lash Paradise is perfection for everyday, it gives you the perfect lashes. For a little bit something extra I use the Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara it gives you something more and is perfect for lengthening those lashes! 

I highly recommend checking out reviews.com list of best mascaras HERE, this will help you find a mascara that is right for you!

Glo Minerals Look & Review

Happy November everyone! Glo Minerals was kind enough to send me their new Cream Stay Shadow Sticks and Precise Micro Browliner last month, and let me tell you they are not playing games! These shadow sticks last ALL DAY LONG! They don't crease and look amazing even after a full day of running around and being in the FL heat. I am thoroughly impressed with the pigment and sheen of these beautiful shadows! The shadow sticks are great to take from day to night as the shadow is buildable and easily taken to the next level. These are the perfect addition to my makeup bag for the fall and winter months!

Review: Target Beauty Box

Target Beauty Box! Yes our favorite store has jumped on the subscription beauty box craze and let me tell you it does not disappoint! The September box came with 7 products, three of which were full size products and the rest deluxe samples! This is already worth the $10, as well as every product was great! Below is the list of products found in this month's box and what I thought!

OGX- Renewing Coconut Milk Conditioner

This is a great everyday conditioner. It leaves hair feeling hydrated and smooth, smells wonderful as well! 

S.W. Basics- Organic Lip Balm

I don't usually wear lip balm but this is great and feels nice on your lips. I put it on before bed and it helps moisturize and heal my lips!

Maybelline- The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara

This mascara is absolutely awesome! The name speaks for itself, lashes look long and fluffy and it gives drama to your eyes without looking overdone.

Rimmel- The Only 1 Lipstick in Best of the Best

I love Rimmel lipstick and this one is no different. Lip products that have a harsh smell aren't my favorite, this one has a wonderful scent that is subtle and smells yummy. The color is vibrant and I love that is is smooth and creamy!

EDEN BodyWorks- JojOba Deep Conditioner

This is a great conditioner for when your hair needs extra care and attention. I love deep conditioning my hair every few weeks to give my hair an extra boost. This deep conditioner helps revitalize and repair your hair and is amazing!

Laneige- Water Bank Moisture Cream

Believe me when I say you must go out and buy this right now! I have been putting this cream on my face right before bed and it does wonders! I wake up with clearer and more moisturized skin, without feeling oily. This is now a staple in my skin care routine.

Biore- Baking Soda Cleanser

Biore has never done me wrong and this product is no exception. This cleanser leaves your face feeling clean and fresh. I noticed it helps calm my skin and redness without being harsh. This is a great product!
