The Only Foundation I Don’t Hate (But LOVE)

I honestly think I have stumbled upon the best foundation ever. I have scientifically determined this because I hate foundations and this is the only one that I have found myself loving. And trust me, I am in love. Here are some things I hate about foundation: Looks heavy, cakey, and unnatural. Feels heavy on my face. Rubs off on everything. Does not last long. Breaks me out. My face gets gross and oily super fast. My face gets shiny. Hard to blend. Makes my face photograph weird. ETC I found that using powder over my moisturizer worked best for me when it came to face products. I mean, I’m someone that doesn’t even like using a primer! I had come to terms with my face makeup laziness and was in no mood to change ways. I had tried many, many foundations the past (which are good in their own way) but never found one that I’ve loved. I really liked the Loreal Cushion makeup but wasn’t absolutely obsessed. I think by now you guys …

What’s In My Kate Spade Purse? (And EXCITING News!!!)

Alright, I have a special surprise for all of you… (the OTHER exciting news will be at the end of this blog post). I have decided to make a VIDEO this time. YES. A video. Pow! Jess from PT Contender told me that I should try to give making videos another chance and so that is what I did the other day. As you all know, there was a makeup tutorial that was supposed to be posted Tuesday but that ended up being a gigantic mess. I will have to re-film it. Anyways, I wanted to make a fun and casual video for you all sharing what I carry in my crossbody bag for spring! My HUGE green Kate Spade (my usual bag) came from Chicago today (it took my mom long enough to mail me my stuff lol. But thank you mom!) so you may get an updated version in a few weeks… but for now… Here’s what’s in my purse! AS FOR MY EXCITING NEWS… A lot of you have been following me …

Lipstick That Lasts Longer Than Your Last Relationship

This story starts like many of my stories–in a Target. I happen to love Target, by the way. I think you guys are all well aware of that but I just wanted to make sure. (I know someone is going to accuse me of being sponsored by Target, but I’m really not. I wish I was lol). I was perusing the aisles with my aunts, my grandmother, and my cousin William when my Aunt Tiana stopped me for a moment and asked, “Christine, I want a lipstick that will last all day after eating and drinking, one that won’t fade. Which one should I get?” She asked the right person for the job, as I pointed to this Revlon lipstick that I had heard phenomenal things about. One thing led to another, and I ended up with one myself. That kind of thing just happens in Target, and I tell myself that it’s so common that it can’t be characterized as a bad habit. I had heard tons of phenomenal things about the Revlon Colorstay …

A Spring Beauty Haul (From Clinique!)

I wanted to do a beauty haul after my trip to Daiso, but decided to wait until my order from Clinique came in! I contemplated waiting a little more until my MAC order came in (I only got one eyeshadow though…) but I got a little too excited today opening my Clinique packages. By the way, if you like exclusive content and behind the scenes sneak peeks add me on Snapchat! I have officially closed down my personal Snapchat to full-time snap on this one for all of you (to the dismay of my friends lol). I vlog, I snap makeup details and outfit details, and of course take pictures of foods! I also do unboxings and it’s an all-around good time! I’m even thinking of doing my first ever Snapchat FAQ to answer some questions that might be a little too bold for the blog… comment, tweet or Snapchat me your questions! Nothing is off-limits! (PS, someone who you should also follow on Snapchat is Jess! She’s better at it than I am…but I’m learning!) …

Elevated Crochet Lace and Bright Florals

There will be TWO fashion posts this week… on Thursday I’ll have one all about shoes! But today, I have an outfit post. But before that, I wanted to give a little life update. There is… a lot going on. A lot going on with applying for programs and school and a lot going on personally. I’m definitely trying to stay positive and to hope for the absolute best. I’m hoping for good vibes in my vicinity and that things will work out! Although I’m pretty darn stressed, I find that blogging has always been a solace for me and that it helps to write. Even if it’s not about what I’m stressing about! I feel like my patience has been really, really tested. – I recently have been making little changes to my wardrobe. After Mom Sass and I purged my closet I made a mental note to purchase clothing that was more along the line of capsule/investment pieces. Slowly but surely, some old favorites are being replaced by their refined, chic, and elevated …

My Current Beauty Favorites

I haven’t done a beauty favorites post in quite some time, so I decided to share with you guys my current favorites! I always love reading these sorts of posts because I always find new intriguing products, some of which later become favorites of my own! I haven’t blogged about these products before but if you follow me on Twitter you might be able to guess what I’m going to mention… ps, if you don’t follow me on Twitter, come join the fun! I swear I’m kind of funny! I have been good about sticking to my new posting schedule (Mondays and Thursdays!) even though I have definitely been tempted to be posting on the daily! There’s a lot of different decisions and things going on in my personal life that has been occupying my mind. I’m excited to tell you all about it when the time is right! I have been doing the same eye makeup recently and always get questions about which products I use and what I’ve been using. I have been posting the same …

Monochromatic Chic On The Streets and Chicago Sweets

OKAY, it has only been like two (three?) days since I made the big announcement that I was going to start blogging twice a week. I’m still figuring out exactly the logistical stuff (if I want to do one personal post a week and one content, or intertwine both for two posts a week… I’ll just have to wait and see!), but consider this the ~official~ test first post! I think because I’m going to post less that my posts will be longer. But we’ll see! I haven’t done an outfit post in a while and I had a fun weekend, so I decided to combine them both and do a post! During my little brother’s spring break he needed a chaperone for a trip that he wanted to make out and about in Chicago with his friend. So, because they wanted to bring the coolest non-adult-but-considered-adult-by-parents, they asked me. I agreed to go with them because I never turn down the change to venture around the city. I have been wearing the Tarte Cosmetics …
