    Sephora VIB Haul

    I was originally planning a different post for today, but it’s not quite ready to publish – I’m still waiting for a few photos to complete the post. In the meantime I’m sharing a haul. The big Sephora sale for VIB Rouge, VIB, and Beauty Insiders was a few weeks ago so I’d thought I’d show you my little haul. I wasn’t really in the need for anything major so my haul was pretty small, but I wanted to take advantage of the discount since Sephora only has these sales maybe two times a year. I have one (maybe 2) item that I’ve used before and 3 that are new.…

    Fall Transition Nails: A Cut Above + Eternal Optimist

    I did my nails last night while watching Dirty Dancing and I loved the colors so much I thought I’d share! I painted my nails with Essie’s “Eternal Optimist” which is a beautiful pink rose color. On my ring fingers I topped “Eternal Optimist” with “A Cut Above”, a pretty rosy pink glitter, for accent nails. I think these colors are the perfect fall transition nail colors. They are rosier and more muted than the fun, bright summer colors, but aren’t your typical dark winter colors. The perfect in-between shades! Essie polishes never disappoint me and I’m seriously loving these colors!

    Laura Mercier Translucent Powder

    My latest box from Influenster was an exciting one – Laura Mercier products! I think it’s definitely the most luxurious products they’ve sent me so far. I was thrilled to receive the Translucent Loose Setting Powder in the new “Glow” version along with a travel size with poof and the Glow Powder Brush. I’ve been wanting to try this loose setting powder for ages because everyone always raves about how silky smooth it is. Now I have not just one, but two! I’ve only been using this powder for a week, but it really is so lightweight and smooth. The brush has a special shape to fit the contours of…

    Jade Roller

    Have you guys been keeping up with what I’m up to on vacation on Instagram/my Instastories? I’m writing this post ahead of time before I get on the plane so I’m assuming that by now I’ve gotten to post on Instastories while overseas, so if I haven’t just ignore that and check back soon! Have you used a jade roller? I’ve been hearing about these for about a year, first seeing them in skincare articles and then seeing people use them on social media. I had really wanted to try one, but didn’t get around to buying one for myself. Until now. I was looking for a birthday present for…

    July 2018 Favorites

    When this post goes live I should be sitting at the airport waiting to board my flight for vacation! My posts the next few days have already been written and scheduled, but as long as my hotel internet is working I should have my first travel post up this weekend! I’ll be gone for about 2 weeks, so look out for exciting travel posts! The month of July was super busy with family visiting, moving, short trips to Baltimore and historical Philadelphia, and seeing Taylor Swift in concert. With being so busy I don’t have a lot of favorites to share so this post will be short! The first favorite…

    Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick

    I don’t know what it is about Bobbi Brown, but something about buying things from the brand makes me feel cool. It’s not like I own many Bobbi Brown things – it’s really just a few – but I feel cool nonetheless! I love Bobbi Brown shimmer bricks because they’re so luxurious but so simple to use and they’re like an everyday, lazy girl product but…luxurious…? if that makes sense. You’ll see what I mean! This shimmer brick is in the shade “Nectar” and as you can see there are thin strips of different shades of these pinky coral colors and a highlight shade. You can use the shades individually…

    Vacay VoxBox

    I hope your weekend is going well so far! I went to the 1st birthday party for one of my best friend’s daughter. It was a nice time outside and I got to go in the pool for the first time this summer! Speaking of summer time fun, if you follow me on Instagram then you may have seen some of my photos of items from my Vacay VoxBox from Influenster. In this post I thought I’d round up the items! In my box, I got: A coupon for a free bag of either the new Sour Patch Kids Freeze or Sour Patch Kids Fire. I picked up the Freeze. Kiss…

    Kat Von D – “White Out”

    I’ve been a part of Influenster for a year or two now and it’s always so exciting getting picked to try out products. Recently I got a gift from Influenster which was so cool! They sent me the Kat Von D Studded Lipstick in the shade “White Out” which is exactly how it sounds – a white lipstick. Now, I’m not one to wear a really bold lip so there’s no way I’d wear white lips! But I immediately knew that I would use it to mix with bold shades to create lighter, more toned down looks. Sometimes I’ll get a set of lip products and there’s usually a shade…

    RoC Skincare #ForYourAge

    How many times have you received a compliment that had a qualifier or was essentially a backhanded compliment? Like, “You look so beautiful…for your age.” RoC Skincare has launched a campaign, #ForYourAge, to empower women to think twice before using the phrase “for your age”. You look great or beautiful or whatever – period. I’ve always been told I look really young and people who don’t know my age are always shocked to learn my real age. I can only hope my youthful looks will last me for a long time! As a teacher I have done a surprisingly amazing job of never revealing my age. At first I never…

    May 2018 Favorites

    Can you believe that tomorrow is already June? It’s crazy to think that we’re already so far in to 2018 and that in a few weeks I’ll be on summer break. To wrap up the month of May, I have a few favorites to share with you. I only have a few favorites so this will be quick. First, I’ve been loving this Orange Marmalade with Champagne with toast for breakfast in the morning. It’s so yummy and not too sweet! Another food favorite of mine this month is the walnut danish from my local bakery. It’s such a good baked good snack especially with an afternoon cup of coffee. My next…
