H&M Haul

Hi Guys!
H&M is having a huge mid season sale at this moment I couldn't help myself but order a few things! I managed to get 7 pieces including a biker jacket, two cardigans, a sweater, a pair of pants, a pair of legging and glasses for under $90! I don't know about you but I think this is pretty freakin' good! I'm really excited to share these pieces with you and if I can still find them on the H&M website, I will link them below!

corduroy pants and printed leggings

First two things I got were bottoms. I got one pair of black corduroy pants for $15 dollars. They were originally priced at $24.95 ( you can find them HERE). They come in six colors/patterns. My favorite thing about them is that they are long enough! I am a tall girl at 5'10 and it is really hard to find pant long enough and these surprisingly are! I had plans of wearing them rolled up but I actually don't need to. The other bottoms I got are a pair of patterned leggings. They are gray with a velvet pattern on them and they were only $10! They were originally priced at $17.95 ( you can find them HERE). They fit great and are a thicker material that is going to be great for the winter time.

The next two things I got were a knitted sweater and a pair of glasses. The sweater is natural white color and it was $12.45. It was originally priced at $24.95( you can find it HERE). It comes in five different colors. I picked the natural white because I  think it would look really great with the patterned leggings I got. I also got a pair of glasses. They have blank lens in them and were $3. They were originally priced at $7.95 (you can find it HERE). They are great for raves or just for completing an outfit.

knit cardigan
Next I got two of the same cardigan. I love huge oversized cardigans so when I saw these for $15 each I jumped at the chance to get them. I might have jumped a little bit to fast because I didn't realize they are wool and not cotton. It was a bit of a surprise but I've actually worn the gray one already and it wasn't too itchy. This is definitely a lesson on reading the description. They were originally priced $34.95 ( you can find it HERE). 

faux leather biker jacket 

Lastly I got this cute little biker jacket. I actually can't find it online anymore sorry! But it was $20 and originally priced at $49.95. It is perfect for the fall weather and it sits perfectly on the waist. I was so surprised to find it for only $20! I can't remember the last time I found such a good deal for a jacket like this!

Seventeen U Tour

Hi guys!

Today on my way to class, I heard some Taylor Swift playing and saw this giant tent. As I walked up closer to it, I realized it was the Seventeen U Tour. I had no idea they were coming to my university so it was a pleasant surprise. I didn't get to spend as much time as I wanted to there because I had to make it to class but they had some awesome things from what I saw. They had a Covergirl Makeover station, a KED shoes station, a Garnier Fructis hairstyling station and much more. They also were giving out awesome goodie bags and I managed to grab one before going to class. Here is what was in it!

First off, everything in it came in a cute little colorful drawstring bags. The first thing I noticed was the Five Star Notebook! It was full sized,pretty designed and I'm definitely going to get some use out of it. Next I also got a few other full sized items. I got a Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Balm that smells amazing, NYC Plumping Lip Gloss in Coral to the Max, and Splat Hair Chalk in Mint Candy. I also got samples of Taylor Swift's new perfume, Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Hair Cream, and Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge shampoo and conditioner. It also came with coupons to The Container Store and Asos. 

However, it is a great little goodie bag and if Seventeen U Tour is coming to you, I would definitely check it on.

Lots of Love,

Top Three Lipsticks

Hi Guys!
I hope you've all been having a good September! This month has been so busy for me between school, work and just getting back into the flow of things. I've finally got a little time for myself so I've decided to making myself a cup of tea and do a little blogging. Today, I am going to show you my top three lipsticks of basically all time. These are the ones I reach for the most. They are Russian Red by MACRose by Hourglass and Nude Delight by Rimmel

L to R: Nude Delight, Russian Red and Rose

Russian Red by MAC: Russian Red is a classic. There is really no other way to put it. It is that perfect red for a dramatic lip look. It is well loved in the blogger world and it is easy to see why! First of all the texture is creamy and thick which makes one coat more than enough for full coverage. Also it isn't drying at all and lasts for a good 4 hours and through a few drinks. It says that it a matte lipstick however I think it has a little bit of a shine to it but it is actually the perfect amount of shine. The color is perfect because it is a deep red with blue undertones that makes your teeth look super white. You can buy at any MAC counter or store for 15 dollars. It is a great red for anyone looking for a first red or to expand their red collection. 

Rose by Hourglass: Rose is the newest one out of three. I was in Sephora one day and I swatched some of the liquid lipsticks. I went home that night showered, cooked and did all my normal things and then noticed that the liquid lipstick swatches still looked amazing. I was so impressed that I went back the next day and bought this one and let me tell you the long wear is amazing. This is a great lipstick for those days that you know you're going to be out all day because you can put it on in the morning and leave the lipstick at home. I have worn it for 8 hours, had 2 cups of coffee, eat lunch and went to three classes and it still looked just like how it looked when I first put it on. The color is great too. It is a pretty rosy pink color that works for everyday wear or for nights out. It also dries matte! The only two downsides are that it can get a bit drying so make sure to apply Chapstick before you use it and that it is 28 dollars. Honestly though, I do think it is worth every single cent I spent on it. 

Nude Delight by Rimmel: Last but not least is my "go to" everyday lipstick Nude Delight by Rimmel. We all know my love for Rimmel; it is my favorite drugstore brand. This lipstick is a very nice nude color with a hint of shimmer. I've been wearing it on an everyday bases just because its subtle but still gives good color and lasts for about 5 hours without retouches. It does on like butter and feels like moisturizing to the lips. You can't go wrong with this color! It looks great on everyone. You can get this lipstick as any drugstore for around 5 dollars.

DiorShow Iconic Overcurl in Black

Hi Guys! 

I can not believe that August and summer is already over! I start my fall semester so I've been so busy and I think that's so crazy and unbelievable. This last month I have had quite a few favorites. Some of them are new while others are ones I've been using for a while. I hope you enjoy! Also thank you so much for the 75 GFC followers, it means so much to me that people actually enjoy reading my blog! 

First is the NARS Duo in Laguna and Orgasm. I have an entire post about it that you can read here. Laguna is a great contouring bronzer, I love using a setting brush and it looks so natural. Orgasm is a beautiful pinky peach color that gives a perfect glow to everyone. Next is Suave Max Hold Hairspray which I have been using for years. I adore it because it works amazing and is under $3! August has been a very humid month and this hairspray has been my savior. Third is TAZO green tea. I love all types of tea but I have been addicted to this one this month. It has a little bit of a mint taste to it which is so refreshing. I highly recommend it. 
I have had a few eye make up favorites this month. First is my complete MAC quad. I did a post of it which you can read here. I love all the colors in it and I use them almost everyday. The colors I have Naked Lunch, Woodwinked, Coppering and Club. Naked Lunch and Woodwinked are perfect everyday natural colors. Next are the L'oreal Infallible eyeshadows. These are slowly becoming a new obsession of mine. I own three in Golden Emerald, Glistering Garnet, and Iced Latte. They are so pigmented and come in amazing colors. Lastly, my Diorshow Overcurl Mascara and oh boy is this mascara amazing. I did a whole post on it here. You don't need to use a lash curler because this mascara is so intense. It also has never smudged or ran on me. I love it! 

What have you been loving this month?
Lots of love
