Sephora Sale: Beauty Must-Have’s

Ahhh! There is a great Sephora 15% off sale going on right now, so I wanted to share all of my favorite beauty products and the one’s I’m dying to try! I basically spent my life’s savings on the order I placed this morning, but at least my skin will be clear and my face will be pretty…#amiright?! Haha! But in all seriousness, I REALLY hate spending money on beauty products. I try to buy drugstore for as many products that I can get away with, but to be honest, I use drugstore very little. There are a few good dupes I have found, but for the most part, you can really tell a huge difference in high end products vs. drugstore. And when it comes to your skin, you just really want to make sure you’re being good to it. Because I cringe every time I spend one million dollars on a .02743962 mL tube of mascara, I literally ALWAYS wait to buy beauty products until there is a sale and can stock up! It’s the best way I’ve found to do it and save the most money!

I got a little carried away this morning making this widget and realized I added too many products and not enough space for text, so I wanted to quickly note some of the products and what exactly they are since you may not have used/heard of them!


1. Too Faced Born This Way : I LOVE this foundation. I’ve tried out way too many and always come back to this one. It’s super full coverage! I wear the “Warm Beige” shade for reference! Highly recommend!

2. Makeup Forever Ulta HD: I used this one for a while and really liked it! It’s lightweight and has good coverage! I ultimately just switched to Born This Way because it was a little more coverage. I always like a “flawless, very done-up look.” Continue Reading

Love Affair With Gingham…

If there is one thing I’ve been addicted to lately, it’s gingham! It’s such an adorable print! This gingham dress is so flattering and perfect for spring/summer! And the ruffle hem adds the cutest touch! I’ve also been wearing this bamboo bag like CRAZY as the temps warm up! It’s such a cute summer bag and perfect to take on beach vacays! It’s a designer dupe, but looks identical for 1/3 of the price!
