Favorite Beauty Products 2017 AND A Rosegold Ring

What's in my bag you ask? Well, besides crap that really shouldn't be in there like goldfish and some hot wheels...I also happen to keep some of theeeee best makeup products of 2017! 

  1. This concealer/highlighter is the absolute BEST! I use it on my eyelids, on my upper jaw for highlighting and even on my nose and chin. I use number 2 "Luminous Ivory" for my skin tone.
  2. My oscillating/vibrating eyelash primer is expensive (bummer) but worth every penny! I had an eye infection and my eye was drooping, (hated it) so to make up for the difference in eyelid size I used this primer on just one eye. Those lashes ended up growing more...coincidence? Now I use it on both, right before mascara. It actually vibrates and wiggles the lashes as you put it on. I dont wear mascara without it! 
  3. Stila Convertable Color/Lips and Cheeks is another all time favorite. It's moisturizing and blends with my body heat to give a natural flush to the cheeks. I think peony is my favorite but I have a few shades.
  4. Charlotte Tilbury makes a lipstick that doesn't dry out my lips and is the perfect nude lip for me. (I also like to use it with a pinkish/brown liner for a nighttime natural look). Its called the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. LIPSTICK and I use Penelope Pink....

Lipstick// Ring (ON SALE FOR 25$!!)

I also happen to love the glammy rose/gold tube it comes in!

Ruffles, A Green Jacket, and Balenciaga: How to combine Feminine and Masculine Looks

It's been really cold here and people are in scarves, hats and puffer coats. Not me though. For some reason I keep assuming I'll be fine in what I have on and then I end up freezing!

Ruffle Top (20$ on sale)// Jacket//Pants//Bag//Booties

What do you think of this ruffle top? It's on sale for 20 dollars right now?!! WTF? Great quality (from Topshop) and looks soooo much more expensive than its is...

Anyway, Happy Weekend! I'll leave you with this:
"Only mediocrity is sure of itself, 
so take your risks and do what you really want to do."

Nike ID // Free Soul

A Free Soul is what I aspire to be. Similar to a free spirit, but the term free soul resonates better to me for some reason. It gives me the feeling that it goes deeper than just being care free, but also good, kind, and pure while always being true to yourself and to a higher purpose.

I love everything about my new Nikes. Was such a fun after Christmas box to open. I designed them to be edgy but clean and obviously with the Free Soul embroidered on the heels:)

They were so easy to customize, you can change so many different aspects of the shoes, even the rubber soul itself. Give it a try and follow the link here!

Post Holiday Home Refresh For Mood and Mental Health

Did you know that sprucing up your environment can have a positive impact on your mood and mental health? According to Science Daily "Neurobiologists have known that a novel environment sparks exploration and learning." (If this sounds interesting to you, you can read about it here.) 

Is it just me or does the house feel a bit stale after the holidays? 

Come to think of it, LIFE always seems to feel a bit stale after the holidays. Perhaps that's why New Years Resolutions were invented. Overindulgence tends to lead to a very "blah" feeling after a while. And believe me, my family definitely overindulged! Peanut butter cookies, toffee, hot chocolate, wine, champagne, eggnog...UGH! And it was a whole month of it! It was just all too much, and now its time to rejuvenate and refresh.

Eucalyptus in the house is a staple for my family after the              holidays.  I tend to buy it in every form. The dried bunchesoilfoot soaksdiffusers, and candles. Its scent is stimulating and refreshing. Perfect for the post holiday winter blues. 

I also find that natural cotton plants and wreaths are a nice post holiday decor item that feels clean and fresh. This Wreath is the perfect eye candy for the first thing you see when you walk into your house!

White baskets are a great tool for post holiday sorting, purging, and organizing. Plus they are lovely to look at. 

And any new artwork or photography will add a touch of novelty to your home. I love these framed prints.

Winter Whites for January

Every New Year I seem to have a common theme to my resolution: to be appreciative of what I have, to be myself at all costs, and to simplify my life. So in that spirit, I always post clean winter whites at the beginning of the year and I always end up cleaning out my closet:)

White just feels fresh and rejuvenating. And on that note, the next post is going to be on refreshing your home, and your mind, so stay tuned!

Beat the Heat and Still Look Chic

Summer's not over yet my friends. And my favorite way to look put together even when its sweltering  is by choosing a unique breezy top or a fun dress with a vest layered over it. This Vest is ideal and its also happens to be a steal!
