Friday Favorites: Best of NYFW and A Makeup Haul

This was a pretty hectic week with it being fashion week and now I’m busy packing for a few days in the Dominican Republic. I wish I could take some photos there for you guys but unfortunately I don’t know any photographers there and the people going with me aren’t great at taking photos. I’m sad about that but of course I’m excited to get some sun for a few days!

I wanted to share my latest youtube video with you guys – a fashion try on haul. Let me know your thoughts! I think we have the lighting down at this point and of course, I’d love if you took the time to subscribe and like/comment.–This week Blue Mercury kindly (more…)

Galentine Giveaway and Halo Smoky Eye Tutorial

I personally don’t enjoy Valentine’s Day because it’s literally an entire day to highlight my single state. No thanks! But I’m all about celebrating good friends and I wanted to treat one of you to a really fun Galentine giveaway! Maybelline sent me a pretty epic Galentine gift (some of you may have seen the unboxing on my instagram stories a few days ago) and because I already had a lot of what they sent me, I decided to share the love with one of you and I also added a couple of stuff that I purchased as well. Whether you’re single or not, I wanted to brighten someone’s day so I hope you’re excited about this Galentine giveaway because I sure am!

I also wanted to share my latest youtube video with you. It’s a tutorial of a copper smokey halo eye that I’ve been loving for special occasions. Check out the video and you can also find all the links to what I used in the description bar below the video. Let me know your thoughts! Please subscribe to my channel and give the video a like if you’re feeling generous. 🙂

But without further ado, let’s get to the Galentine giveaway! One lucky winner will win all these amazing Maybelline lippie products including 6 of the newly revamped Baby Lips which give impressive pigment while making your lips feel so smooth and moisturized. There’s also a whole bunch of Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks, their brand new Colossal Bigshot Mascara and their liquid highlighter (I have a darker or lighter shade depending on the winner’s skin tone). I also bought an iridescent makeup bag because it reminded me of happiness and unicorns as well as a pretty pink pom pom keychain. To enter, just fill out the rafflecopter form. US and Canada only. Good luck!

My Obsession with Drunk Elephant

First of all, this post is a Drunk Elephant review and it is not sponsored. I just want to make sure that’s very clear! Skincare is probably what I get emailed to collaborate the most on, more than any other category. And it’s also the category I turn down the most often because I am extremely picky about what I put on my face and I’m not going to share something with you guys that I don’t trust and believe in 100%. But I wanted to do this Drunk Elephant review because I’m passionate about sharing the things I love with you guys!

I see people rave about expensive products that are clearly not good for anyone’s skin and I cringe every time! It’s usually because it’s heavily fragranced which is proven not to be good for the skin, in fancy packaging that does nothing to keep the ingredients stable (like a pretty jar), or is just filled with irritating ingredients.

There are so many high end skincare and makeup products that are heavily fragranced and people seem to have no problem with it. They think that because it’s a fancy, high end brand, that it must be good and that is so far from the truth. Fragrance and/or fragrant essential oils can cause damage to the skin, especially over a period of time. But we finally have a skincare brand that actually cares about selling quality products in the appropriate packaging rather than putting something that smells pretty in a fancy jar without a care as to whether or not it’s harmful to the skin. drunk elephant b hydraBefore I discovered Drunk Elephant, (more…)

Essie Gel Couture Giveaway

Have you seen my second youtube video yet? I did a fashion try on haul which is one of my favorite kind of videos to watch. Please feel free to let me know if there’s a specific video you want me to create and please subscribe to my brand new, two-week-old channel here! You can view my first video where I share my favorite beauty products of 2016 here.
This week I had the opportunity to attend a barre class at Pop Physique with Essie. Besides for getting a fun workout in at the cutest studio I’ve ever seen, I had the chance to preview the newest collection – Essie gel couture ballet nudes – as well as their TLC collection.

I really enjoy the Essie gel couture formula because they last a few days longer than regular polish does for me without being so prone to chipping. I like to take a break from gel manicures every so often and these are a great alternative. The TLC collection (treat, love and color) is great because it provides a sheer wash of color while simultaneously being an amazing nail strengthener which is amazing for those with weaker nails prone to peeling and breaking. Andddd I’m so excited that Essie is generously offering to give BOTH of these sets to one lucky winner! Enter to win the Essie gel couture ballet nudes collection and all three TLC shades here. Good luck!
