Morning Skincare Routine


In the mornings I like to keep my skincare routine pretty minimalistic and simple. Not only does this save me time in the mornings, but I also don't want to pile on a bunch of products before makeup or just heading out the door for the day. These are mostly products that I have used for a long time and always seem to come back to. They are effortless and get the job done! I am going to go through step by step what I do and give a little review of each product.

Current Beauty and Skincare Favorites


I am always finding new beauty and skincare products to try. I find it so fun to discover new products and try out new trends. Some of these products are new to the rotation and some are oldies I have brought back into my daily routine. They are all incredible and products that I absolutely love and that is why they are my current faves! I'm just going to run through each one and explain why I love it so much and why you should give it a try!

Beat The Heat Summer Essentials


Tomorrow is the first official day of summer, so I thought it would be the perfect time to share some of my summer fashion essentials. This means spending plenty of time outdoors, rising temperatures and sunny days! I know I love being outside in the summer, whether it be at the pool or heading into the city for the day. It is always fun to enjoy the good weather with good friends. That being said, I do not enjoy feeling hot, uncomfortable and sweaty. 

I have gathered up my top seven summer essentials to help beat the heat, but stay looking just as cute! From clothes to accessories, I have got you covered. These are all things I absolutely swear by in the summer and you can find me sporting constantly. 

The Roundup: Facial Mists


In the past, facial mists have always seemed like a pointless step in a skincare routine to me. I didn't really understand the benefits and thought it was basically just spraying water on your face. 

Lately, I have hopped on the bandwagon and absolutely love facial mists. There are so many different options out there and they all have different purposes and benefits. Now, I just can't seem to get enough of them! 

I haven't tried a ton of different ones yet, but the three I have given a good go are quite wonderful. There is some sort of satisfaction and enjoyment that comes out of spritzing your face with a cool, hydrating mist. I thought today I would share the three that I use and love and a give a little rundown on each one.

The Easiest Smokey Eye

We all know the smokey eye look can be a little challenging sometimes. I have had plenty of moments where everything is going great and then next thing I know it looks like I have two black eyes. Over the years I have found a way to do a smokey eye that just works so well and is so so easy. I literally wear this eye makeup every time I am going out at night and it never fails;I even do it on my friends all the time. 
Now, just to warn you, I know it looks like I have used a ton of products, but don't let that intimidate you. It is such an easy look anyone can re-create and takes only a few minutes. I have included all of the exact products I use, but have also included an eye shadow palette that has every color you would need so you don't have to go buy a bunch of different stuff. It is up to you! There are also tons of similar colors out there you could use that would get the job done!

Sephora Product Review

During the VIB Rouge Sale a few months back I picked up some new products to try, as well as replacing some things I had run out of. I though that since it has been a few months since having the products it would be a good time to give them a review. Since I have had these products for several months, I can really give some insight into how these products really are.
