Current Favorites Oct '17


So I have just a few things, some old and some new, that I have been loving this month that I wanted to share with you guys. 

First up I have been in love with this hydrating body oil I got from TJ Maxx. It smells so good and I love the way it feels on my skin. When I first purchased it, I did not like it because I thought it absorbed into the skin too quickly, but the more I've used it the more I love how it feels! 

Next is my go to lip color, Whirl by MAC. It is a brown/pink matte color that I think looks good on everyone and is definitely going to stay in my handbag all fall. 

Next, I received this Origins retexturing rose clay mask from Influenster a few months ago and have been testing it out along with origins Serum and Matte moisturizer. This mask is my favorite out of that trio. It is a wash off mask that gently exfoliates and I see a difference immediately after using it. 

I received this Burberry Touch perfume as a gift from my boyfriend and have been wearing it since the day he gave it to me. It is a very soft fragrance with notes of cranberry, rose and vanilla that make it wearable for the fall weather. 

Always a staple in my skincare routine is this lip mask from Laneige. I've mentioned it in a previous skincare post and it is sill everything I said it was. Slather it on your lips before bed and you will wake up with the softest lips ever.

I am a lover of matte lips and when I cant find a lipstick shade that suits what I  need I turn to lipliners. I absolutely love Milani lipliners as an all over lip color, especially these two in Natural and Nude. 

My last favorite is my name necklace that has been purchased over and over throughout my life, lol. I love a name plate necklace, it's just a staple for me. I love dainty gold jewelry so this has always fit my aesthetic. I got this one from mynamenecklace.com.

My top beauty trick for your nails


Like most of us, I am all about looking my best and saving money at the same time! For me, hair and nails are a must as far as looking put together. If my hair is not done, I am ugly and there is nothing you can say to convince me otherwise. And if my nails are not done, I just feel like the crustiest human being on earth. Needless to say I try to keep both up to par as much as I can. I have been a slave to acrylic and gel nails since I was 16 and being 29 now, I can tell you that I have had to take breaks from the nail shop every once in a while because truth be told, artificial nails can do more harm than good to the health of your nails and can put a dent in your pocket depending on what you like to get. 

So in between nail shop visits, when Im trying to give my nails or my pockets a break I live for glue on nails! They are cheap, easy to apply and literally last me two weeks. As along as you remove them properly (soak for 5 mins in acetone) they will not damage your nails. I get my false nails from eBay (link below) for about $7.


To apply: 
1. Start off with clean nails.
2. File your nail surface just a little, because the nails stick better to a rough surface and this helps them stay on longer.
3. Glue on by size and paint!


If you are looking to give your nails a break but still want to get cute or just cant afford to go to the salon at the moment, this is going to be a a life saver. Everything I used can be purchased using the links above!

4 Podcast you Need to Listen To!


I discovered podcasts maybe two years ago and I have been hooked ever since. I listen to mostly self development podcasts that offer advice on how to live your best life and it's usually how I like to start my day. Here's a list of my favorite ones that I think everyone should listen to as they have something to offer everyone!

1. GirlBoss Radio - This is hosted by author and Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso. Every week she has a different guest and they discuss success and what it mean to them as well as how they got to where they are today. At the end of every interview Sophia asks her guests to share their "girl boss moment" which is basically a time in their week where they felt they were on top of their shit. So inspiring!

2. Style Your Mind - Hosted by author Cara Alwill Leyba (Girl Code) this podcasts basically chronicles all the ups and downs that come with being an entrepreneur and Cara also interviews different people who share their experiences and stories throughout life.

3. For the Culture (JustinJ and Adrianxpression) - I love this podcast! Not only is it so funny and entertaining, it touches on all the social issues that we are facing today as well as the messy stuff you see on The Shade Room, they talk about it all! Hosted by YouTubers JustinJ and Adrian (of Adrianxpression) this podcast will having you dying of laughter while keeping you well informed!

5. Myleik Teele's podcast - The founder of Curl Box, Myleik Teele offers real life advice as well as advice for up and coming entrepreneurs who are trying to figure out how to navigate life. Myleik answers real life questions from her listeners and what I love about her podcast is that she is so straight forward in her answers. It's like talking to that one friend who you know is gonna give you the real deal even if it hurts your feelings (we all need a friend like that).  Her podcast is a must listen, especially if you are trying yo start your own business.
