Spring has sprung and the warm weather is approaching us. Updo’s become more prominent with the warmer weather. It is easy to get bored quickly with the average bun. So I have a few ways to spice up your average bun. Today I wore a sock bun with a flower crown wrapped around… like so!
I just thought it was something extra to make it a little more festive and springy!
Scarfs are another way to add a little something extra to your hair. I usually like to wrap it as a headband when my hair is up..
(tbt to my trip to England)
I encourage everyone to create their own fun buns. You’re so much more fun than the boring old bun. Express yourself!
Just a quick note.. I’m in love with this Illuminator! With my cheeks being naturally red, this Illuminator has this peachy tint to it that really brings out the natural blush. I will definetly but this again. I hope you like my simple look. I will be spending my day in the library- so exciting!
excuse my bathrobe.. I got to excited about the product I couldn’t wait any longer
With my birthday at the beginning of the month that allowed some money to come into my grubby little college paws. Which means makeup… all sorts of makeup I’ve been putting on my wish list for months. So with spring coming into season, I’m switching out my dramatic contouring, with more of a light, dewy look. I’m so in love with this look actually. It’s something new to me that I’ve never tried before, and now that it’s in my makeup reservoir I vow to never let it go. Back to my new makeup.. as soon as I could I ordered the best possible illuminator I found. Now I may be wrong with my research, but I figured trial and error always works. I ordered NARS Illuminator in the shade Orgasm – I’m 19 and still can’t get over the name. I haven’t gotten to try it yet, but trust me I’m dying. I’ll be soon to post my own look with it. As well as my illuminator, i got a free gift for my birthday, NARS matte lipsticks. I obsess over anything matte so I can’t wait to try these either.
I’m happy to be back and posting. My personal looks will be up soon.
These past couple days have been busy, so first I have to say sorry for not posting for a few days. Kaylee and I went to New York City for the weekend, so we were a little too excited about that to be able to post. I figured to just write quick little things about each item, which are all fantastic by the way! So day 5 was…Midnight Fleur by NEST. To me it is a scent I would wear in the evening. There is this strong flower scent which is really actually lovely. I’ve never had a perfume of theirs before but I definitely would buy another from them. Day 6 is Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lighting Serum. To me personally I don’t exactly need a age spot lightener, I’m 18, as of now I don’t have any wrinkles ( thank god). I guess it is never too early to start preventing though! I put it on and it was this weird feeling on my skin, it kind of felt like it was tightening, which I’m guessing is a good thingI! Day 7 was Purity by Philosophy. This product is something that I’m very familiar with, and I love it. My mother has been ordering Philosophy since I can remember, it was the first face wash I ever used. There is this simple light smell which is very relaxing, and it doesn’t leave any residue on your skin, but leaves it smooth and clean. Day 8 was IT Cosmetics Mascara. I’m obsessed with mascara, and when I say obsessed I mean like in an unhealthy way. I use a total of 5 mascaras, now 6, a day. So adding this mascara to my collection is very exciting. Lets just say I’m in love with it. The brush creates this brilliant effect on the lashes that fans them out and adds volume. I greatly recommend this product! Finally today’s product, day 9 is StriVectin Wrinkle and Stretch Mark Tightener. I’m currently praying this works, weight has not always been kind to me. Stretch marks are embarrassing, and yes I do have them. I put the lotion on the areas, I will report back with the results! Now that I have gotten caught up with the days I will continue to post regularly. Day 10 here we come!
Waking up has never been my favourite thing to do. When you have a warm cozy bed why would you want to go anywhere else? What makes it even worse is waking up at 7am for an Econ class at 8am. Being the person I am, someone who doesn’t get excited about numbers and graphs, this is one of the hardest things in the world to do. So as I roll my way out of bed and barely land on my two feet, I grab my advent box praying that it will bring me some sort of joy to this dreadful morning. As always the box did not disappoint me. On this beautiful day 3 I received Kate Somerville Exfolikate, which let me say is like a blessing to me this morning. Waking up in an irritated mood,this exfoliator helped calm my nerves. As soon as started using it this green tea smell instantly hit me, calming my senses and helping me relax. This product called “Hollywood’s 2 minute facial” is an exfoliating treatment that is absolutely wonderful, and I highly recommend it. The exfoliator is to be used once or twice a week and left on for about 1 to 2 minutes. When you put the mask on it has this greenish tint, but after having it on for about 30 seconds the color goes away. In the picture the green color has already started to fade. I left my mask on for about 2 minutes, there’s this tingling feeling on your skin, which is a feeling that I really love. After washing it off my face feels incredibly soft and smooth, let me just share if I could buy a lifetime supply of this stuff I would! Hoping that tomorrow is a little easier to get up but has a product that is just as exciting.
