OOTD: Sephora Interview

Hi Guys! 
Yesterday, I had an interview with Sephora and I think it went really well! I am looking for a job closer to university and there is a Sephora in the mall 15 minutes away so I thought why not apply. It was a group interview with 4 other people. I was the youngest and least experienced but I still thought they liked me and I applied for a cashier position. I should be hearing from them in the next 2 weeks and I'll keep you guys updated! This is the outfit I wore to the interview. I went for a basic black and white combination. 

Top: H&M on sale $15.00
Pants: TJ Maxx $24.99
Shoes: Target $19.99
Bracelets: Pandora (gift from high school graduation) and Francesca's $12.95

For my hair I wore it in a sock bun. I used a pre made sock bun hair thing. I think I got it at H&M for about 4 dollars. I kept my make up pretty simple gold brown eyes with a bold pink lip. I wish I got a hair and face picture but I was so nervous that I completely forgot to take one! I hope you liked my outfit!

What are you excited for this fall? 
Lots of love

My First Complete Mac Palette

L to R: naked lunch, woodwinked, coppering, club

Hi Guys! 
So I recently completed my first MAC palette! This is so exciting just because I feel like MAC does some of the best eyeshadows and has such a wide range of colors. I started with the quad because I wanted a few good basic everyday colors before I started a big palette and I wanted to see if I liked the eyeshadows enough to start a big one. I actually will buy a big palette next paycheck and start that soon! I hope you like my little quad!

Woodwinked: This color is a beautiful warm gold color with a bit of shimmer in it. It is probably my favorite color that I own. It looks great in the crease or all over the lid and I love pairing it with Naked Lunch. 

Naked Lunch: This color is a creamy champagne color with a bit of soft pink hints to it. I love wearing this an inner corner highlight or over over my lid with Woodwinked in the crease. 
Coppering: This is my little bit of fun color. Coppering is a shimmery copper with red tones color. I love the red tones because it really makes my brown eyes pop and I like to wear in the crease.

Club: This is my newest MAC shadow and the darkest one I own. It is a such an interesting color because it changes. I never really know how to describe it but it is a brown/tealish/green color. It looks lovely in the crease and adds a little pop to a smokey eye. 

What are some of your favorite mac colors? 
Lots of Love

Dior Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara Review

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl: $28.50 at Sephora and Nordstrom

The Claim: “ a revolutionary mascara with a curved brush that offers spectacular volume and curling power. High precision ingredients provide intense definition and hold without clumping or smudging.” I don’t know about you but these seem like some pretty high claims to me and I was so excited to put it to the test.

Just like every other Dior mascara, the Diorshow Iconic Overcurl has a classy and elegant packaging. It is a silver tube with black lettering. It looks and feels luxuries. I would not expect anything less from a mascara that is $28.50 per tube.

This is not the first Dior mascara that I have tried. I actually own the original Diorshow mascara and the Diorshow Black Out mascara. I have to say Dior mascaras are some of my favorite just a little bit behind my Benefit’s They’re Real! The thing that really stands out about this mascara compared to other Dior mascaras is the curved wand. It has the absolute perfect amount of curve that fits perfectly from the roots to the tips of your lashes creating that perfect curl. The mascara is a little bit more on a wet side but I haven’t had any problems with smudging or clumping.I have it 090 which is the black shade and it is truly a dark black.

It is perfect for those nights that you want bold eyelashes but are not in the mood for false lashes. Two coats is all you need and then you can be right out the door! Overall, this mascara is great for volume, length and curling. You honestly don’t need to use an eyelash curler before this. The Diorshow Iconic Overcurl covers all the bases that a girl can have in a mascara and I would highly recommend this to anyone.

What mascara have you been loving?

Back to Campus Wishlist

Hi Guys!
This is my " Back to Campus Wishlist" because in just a few weeks it is back to the campus life for me and with Fall just around the corner there are definitely a few items I want to get my hands on. These aren't exact items that I want but rather a general idea! I hope you guys enjoy and maybe get an idea or two from here! 

First thing I really want before going back to campus is a pair of tall brown boots. I own a lot of shoes and especially a lot of boots but I don't have a pair of tall brown riding boots and I just think they are so cute and go with so many outfits. I feel like a pair of boots can make an outfit go from super lazy to super cute.

Second thing I really want is a pair of booties with cute designed fold overs. I found these on interest and I am trying ready hard to find out where they are from because they are to die for! I love that extra bit of detail. I think it makes them super unique. 

Third thing I want is a big cozy cute sweater. I love pairing big sweaters with boots, leggings and a scarf. I think it looks cute and still really easy and comfy. This is the perfect outfit for an early class because no one wants to put on jeans for an 8 am but this still looks put together. 

Fourth thing I want is a cute teapot! I especially like this one because I love Alice in Wonderland. There is nothing better than coming back from class and having a nice hot cup of tea. It is healthy and yummy.

Fifth thing I want is MAC lipstick in Creampuff. This looks like a perfect everyday color and would be a perfect addition to my little MAC lipstick collection. I can keep it in my purse and reapply between classes. 

Sixth thing I want are fall candles. Just like every other beauty blogger, I love candles. They smell amazing and warm up a room. I'm so excited for all the fall smells to come out and if you have any suggestions please let me know!

Seventh thing I want is a light weight fall jacket. I always struggle when it becomes too cold for just a sweater but too early to pull out the peacoat. I love this one because I really like the leather sleeve detailing. I think mixing fabrics is awesome. 

Eight thing I want is a other mixed fabric item, leather and cotton leggings. These have been on my wishlist for so long! I think it is an awesome twist to a basic clothing piece. This really dresses up leggings and makes them edgy. 

Ninth thing I want is a oversized "Party At Gatsby's " hoodie. I am in love with this! I love the book and movie and I think this is just great. It would be perfect with leggings for a lazy day or shorts! I found it on a website online and I can't wait to order it.

Lastly, I want a pair of cute TOMS. I really like these because they have Paris on them and I always saw a pair with the Little Mermaid characters on them. I think these would be great for class and for walking around campus. they are super comfy and super cute! 

What is on your wishlist?
Lots of Love,

Tax Free Weekend Haul

MAC Quad Palette

Naked Lunch, Woodwinked, Coppering

MAC Brow Pencil in Spiked

MAC Sheertone Blush in Pinch Me

Top to Bottom: Club, Spiked, Pinch Me

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel

Hi Guys!
So this past weekend, I was in Boston visiting some family and it just so happened to be Massachusetts' Tax Free Weekend. To be honest, I didn't even know such a thing existed but hey, I sure was happy to find out. I decided to take advantage of this situation and buy some things I've had my eye on and some things I just needed. I stopped at the MAC store since there isn't one near me in Jersey and I took a stop at Sephora. I ended up throwing it all in the MAC bag just because it was easier to travel home with it. I hope you enjoy this little haul! 

First, the things I got at MAC. I got another MAC eyeshadow in Club which is such an interesting color. It is hard to describe because depending on how the sun hits it, it looks different. I would have to stay its a grayish emerald color. I, then, decided it was time to get a palette since my MAC eyeshadow collection is slowly growing. I own three and bought Club so I thought a nice Quad would be perfect! I think I wanted to start small and maybe get a 15 shadow one online later one but for now, this one is perfect size for me. Next, I got an eyebrow pencil in Spiked because I ran out of my old one. The sales lady did my eyebrows with it in the store and oh my gosh they look so good! Lastly, I got my first MAC blush! I know crazy what beauty blogger doesn't own a MAC blush. I have also been loyal to NYX blushes but after I tried NARS Orgasm, I thought it was time to expand my blush world. I got Pinch Me which is a lovely warm tone rose color. I don't think the pan does it justice because it looks so pretty on! 

Then, I took a trip into Sephora. I got got two things there but they are definitely going to get a lot of love from me. First I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel to go with my new eyebrow pencil. I have curly hair and when my brows grow they tend to get out of control so I thought I'd give this a try in trying to keep them in place. I will definitely do a review on this! Next, I got the new Diorshow Iconic Overcurl. This is suppose to be time saving because you don't need to curl your lashes before using it. Besides Benefit, Dior is my second favorite mascara brand. I tried this on in the store and it looks amazing. I will do a Face of the Day with this mascara really soon. 

I hope you guys liked my little haul! What have you bought lately? 
Lots of Love,
