Monday Motivation: Go Explore

travel motivation

Happy Monday everyone! Today, I won’t be raving about my favorite kind of mascaras or the latest fashion trend to hit the streets, but something maybe a little bit more important instead: Exploring and traveling. It is the pursuit of a million ideas and the realization of one. No matter your age, financial status, or career status, always find the time, money, and openness of your mind to travel. Whether it be to a different continent or the neighboring town, EXPLORE! So, in today’s post, instead of putting you to sleep with boring text, I have some of my favorite picture quotes that I’d love to share with you all in hopes your wanderlust (great desire to explore and travel) comes peeking out a little!Traveltravel2 (more…)

July Beauty Favorites #FancyFridays

July Beauty Favorites

To say the summer has been flying by seems like such a cliché but it’s really true. With the sun and heat to combat during the day, I haven’t changed my beauty products too much (I haven’t even been wearing makeup as much) during the summer but there are still a few products that I’ve been reaching for over and over.


Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Review

Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW Pomade Review

Eyebrows and me are like bones and a dogs… I gotta have em. So not so surprisingly I have a lot of eyebrow products.. like A LOT. My eyebrows are naturally thin (if I went a year without getting them done they still wouldn’t be bushy!), so obviously I’m obsessed with nice full brows. Everybody and their mama has pretty much tried Anastasia Beverly Hills brow products before (literally my mom has some of their brow pomade as well). I’ve tried a few of their products before including their brow pencil and have always known them to be pretty solid products. So way back in the spring when I was in the need for new brow product, I decided to finally try their dipbrow pomade once and for all. This is probably one of their most popular products and has been reviewed by countless beauty bloggers so I figured I might as well add my two cents as well. (more…)


tumblr_lormcnYwNr1qcsvgjo1_500Call me crazy, but there’s nothing more I love than being on a plane and flying. My favorite part is when I hear the engines start to bellow as I’m pushed back into my seat and outside, I see the rest of the world becoming smaller and smaller as I accelerate forward and upward, escaping the earth and soaring the sky. Yes, takeoff. Although I do love flying, it’s all fun and games until someone’s gotta get there beauty on. Here’s a few tips I’ve learned to keep you feeling and looking great during your travels.  (more…)


DIY Tinted Moisturizer

Ideally during the summer you want to wear as little makeup as possible but sometimes it’s hard to go completely bare. I’ve taken to making my own custom tinted moisturizer during the summer months by using this quick and simple DIY. It gives me the sheer coverage that I want without feeling heavy on my face like a normal foundation. The best part? It doesn’t require buying any new products! You can use any foundation of moisturizer of your choosing to create this DIY tinted moisturizer. I personally like to use my Clinique Stay Matte Foundation mixed with either my oil control lotion or my radiant primer for a “glowy bronzy” look.

Items you’ll need:

  • Face Moisturizer
  • Foundation
  • Brush or Sponge




Who doesn’t love trying out new products? I know I do! If you haven’t already heard of Influenster, it’s a website where you can discover, share, and review all products anywhere from dog shampoo to YSL primer. They have these boxes, “VoxBoxes” which are themed with different products in them and if your interests connect to a specifically themed box from  questions you previously answered, you could be sent that Voxbox to try out and review the products.

8 Best Liquid Lipsticks for Any Budget

Best Liquid Lipsticks

Liquid lipstick acts like a lipgloss but has the staying power of a stain. They aren’t exactly a “new trend” (they’ve been around forever) but they are definitely becoming more popular. If you haven’t tried one of these before now’s the perfect time to do it! These products are great for carefree days of summer because they’re super easy to apply and stay on better than regular lipstick (so you don’t have to worry about reapplying even after eating or drinking).

Interested in trying this trend? Here’s a roundup of 8 drugstore and high-end versions to fit every budget (my two favorites are the Stila Stay All Day and the NYX Matte lip cream). (more…)

Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless Liquid Foundation Review

Benefit Cosmetics 'Hello Flawless!'Liquid Foundation

The right foundation is like a girl’s best friend; dependable and always has your back. With summer in full effect and the dog days still to come, I’ve been opting to forgo foundation more often than not. Back in the early summer before I broke up with my foundation I picked up the Benefit Cosmetics ‘Hello Flawless!’Liquid Foundation. It’s a product that had been on my radar for a while so I finally took the plunge and bought it.

The product is descried as “a brightening, oil-free liquid foundation that builds from light to medium coverage with broad-spectrum SPF 25 protection.” I loved the idea of it because it has SPF already built-in, something that can be hard to find in a foundation. The coverage is light to medium so it’s ideal for more everyday use. The foundation comes in a standard pump bottle for easy application which I also like.

I was excited to see if the foundation would live up to its long and boastful name. (more…)
