This week has proven to be an interesting week for me, especially since the USPS completely changed the look that I was originally going to do. I was originally going to do an anime character that I am in love with but my sister gave me this idea to improvise. THEN I decided to put my own person twist on it since I could not find any big circular glasses. I am SAD (from Inside Out) but STILL FLY!!

Fall Makeup Look 

img_2195Hey Loves,

So I have really been contemplating how I want to portray makeup on my channel as it is still something that I really love. HOWEVER I have to be honest with you, editing them bores me and I find myself more focused on trying to come up with something that other people would repost RATHER than whatever I felt inspired to do. It was a very frustrating realization for me

img_2314but I have decided that I do not want to erase it from my blog. However I have decided to make it specifically for my blog unless I have scheduled that couple of hours needed to edit it.

So above is a look I did for the first day of FALL and I accidentally deleted the footage to make the video. I am still in love with this look and I wanted to share it with you guys. So this time I will post the products I use but I want to pose the question to you guys: Would you prefer me to post step by step instructions with photos or is this good enough?

Colourpop Fall Lipsticks & Eyeshadow Review

I know you guys were probably expecting my usual Wet N Wild Fall lip swatches but I was not really impressed. I have also made the decision that as my Ultra Matte lipsticks are reaching expiration date that I do not want to buy more. The matte of this lipstick is extremely harsh on my lips. HOWEVER, I really love the feel the texture of the ultra satin lipsticks. While shopping on Colourpop I also fell for their eyeshadows as I have also been giving those away (probably going to have to save them for my sisters after they read this)

Foursome Super Shock Eyeshadow

Colourpop Fall Eyeshadow

Dynasty (matte blackened red)

Bow Down (rich purple with tons of silver and purple glitter)

Off the Grid (deep maroon with gold and pink glitter)

**NOTE: My eyeshadow look for this review was using all 4 colors of this set **

Fall Trend 2017|Power Red Statements 

 

 

 

As Fall is my favorite time of year, I also enjoy looking at the fashion trends for the season. The trend I am most excited about this year is the POWER RED. As I have not been shopping in a while I decided I deserve some RED pieces in my life. The first addition to my life is this awesome bag I found from target. It reminds me of those beautiful Chanel handbags. Just you know instead of the $5000 price tag I paid $29.99.

I also like the simplicity of this bag and I feel that it can be matched with a lot of different things. My fall wardrobe always falls into the neutral color scheme with pops of fall colors. Khaki Green and Rust Orange are still my first go to colors but I do enjoy cranberries. Hopefully I can find some booties to really get this POWER red going in my life.

However I have some simple looks for this bag. Simple black and white combos but I have been looking at runways and looking at the other trends to see if I can mix them.

How are you incorporating your fall trends or do you not care at all?

 

Bullet Journal| Traveler’s Notebook Cover Unboxing (Etsy)

Hey Loves,

Happy Indigenous People Day!!!! I am here with the cover that I have currently been using for my bullet journal/traveler’s notebook compilation. (one day I will explain why I do this) I bought my cover the LeatherQuilleShoppe on etsy for $19 (She was having a sale) You can check her shop out HERE.

I got the turquiose color, A-5 No Wrap, Black elastic and I must say I like my little cover. I wish that it had pockets on the inside of the cover but hopefully I can find an etsy shop with a decent price one of these days.

So CLICK HERE to see how I was feeling about it and my first impressions.
