I probably should have called this post a L’Oreal and Rimmel praise post! But these are legit some of my favorite drugstore products, they just happen to come from the same company! Also, how adorable is that makeup bag? I’m obsessed.

This next week I will be on vacation! I’ll be in Seattle, Vancouver, & Boise! Any and all travel tips are appreciated 🙂

No buy over!

No buy over!

I finished my 30 day no buy today so naturally I ran to target… 

 L’Oreal the Palette Nude 1, L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in 103, & Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture 


Look at those beauties! April- not a good month to do a no buy cause there are so many deals! I literally refused to go to places like Ulta cause I knew I would just be tempted. Even Walmart was out at the end there. I think it’s a nice little cleanse not to buy anything beauty related for awhile though. Or make a list and put what you really, really want first. 
Keep being you!

GRWM: Bridal Shower!

GRWM: Bridal Shower!

Hello all! Yesterday I went to a bridal shower and decided to do a little get ready with me. I’m doing hair and makeup, plus a little outfit peek! Gotta love wearing a summery dress in 30 degree weather, come on Wisco. What we do for cute outfits!


Most of this you’ve seen before, so I’m just going to mention 3 specific products: Stila Eyes Are The Window Palette in Soul, LoracPRO to Go Blush in Coral, & Nars Lip Gloss in Orgasm.



I swear to god this post isn’t sponsored by L’Oreal, but I’ve been loving their stuff as of late. Especially with shorter hair.


I added a cardigan and tights before heading out in the cold!

Hello People of the Internet!

Today on my drive back to school, I decided to take a spontaneous trip to Walmart. This is where it just started to go wrong. I wanted to look at the beauty things, and ended up with a mini haul… oops! Also, don’t go to Walmart right after you’ve watched someones drugstore favorites. You’ll end up buying everything mentioned. Plus my Ipsy bag was on my bed and this month was so cute! I am really pumped to try everything out.

October Favorites!

October Favorites!

Hello Lovelies!

November is finally upon us! It is my favorite month, though I may be biased because it is my birthday on the 23rd, turnin’ 21 y’all! I also love building up the anticipation for Christmas, I think I may like the anticipation more than the actual event, but that’s just me! The first snowfall always makes me happy and I always long for a White Christmas, but after that it can melt! Never does though, damn Wisconsin. BUT lets dive into the things that I’ve obsessed over last month!



The Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator

As you can all probably tell, I’ve gone a little nuts over the Body Shop recently, whoops! I think that is because I have yet to try a product that I don’t really like. I’m awful when it comes to skin care, and even more awful when it comes to exfoliating. But I love how this makes my skin feel (it is so soft!) and how it makes my skin look.


L’oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup in Nude Beige

Upon trying this product, I realized that I have never actually tried anything from L’oreal before. But I absolutely love this foundation. It has such a great build able coverage but also your skin still feels and looks like skin, which is what I, personally, want in a foundation. The other great thing about this is that there are so many options.


Paul Mitchell Express Style Fast Form

I don’t talk about hair much on here but that is because I’m still trying to figure it out, good lord do I struggle. But I also have really thick hair that takes literally all day to dry. The last time I want to get a haircut, the hairdresser recommended this to me and it is worth it. Basically what it does is make your hair dry faster which is a miracle product, in my eyes.


Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Limitless

When I first got the Tarte collectors set I knew I’d fall in love, and that I did. I immediately blogged about it: see here. My next two favorites come from it. I think that this blush is perfect for fall/winter because it has this peachy rose shade that looks like you’ve just been kissed by the cold. You hardly need to touch your brush to the plus because it has that much pigment, totally worth it!


Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose Tarte Marcuja Lipgloss in Nice

I don’t know about you, but once there is the slightest gust of cold air my lips immediately get dry and start to crack. I love many lip balms but this ha sheen my favorite of October. It provides so much moisture, with a really nice color tint. I like a little bit of a lip gloss look and have found that the two of these go together wonderfully.

I hope you are having a great start to November, and if not remember that you can always turn it around! You are in control and you 110% got this! Thanks lovely people of the internet!

Keep Being You!
