holiday gift guide 2017 | black friday edition

If you haven't already started shopping for holiday gifts (or shopping for yourself, I won't judge), now's the week to do it. There are so many sales happening right now for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so I thought I'd let you know about all the best sales as well as some of my favorite items from those sales. I'll let you know if you need a code or if the sales I mention are sitewide sales as well as when the sales end, so this is definitely the post to bookmark if you're going to cozy up in bed after Thanksgiving to start doing some intense online shopping. I hope you find this post helpful for all your holiday shopping!

purpose jewelry

If you know me, you know I’m very into social justice - especially organizations and movements that empower women all over the world. When the brand PURPOSE Jewelry reached out to me to partner on some posts featuring their pieces, I knew I had to share their brand with you. PURPOSE Jewelry is a brand that works with victims of human trafficking to empower them and give them employable skills to help improve their quality of life after being rescued. When you make a purchase from PURPOSE Jewelry, proceeds go to International Sanctuary, a charity that works for the empowerment of human trafficking victims. Keep reading to see what I think about their jewelry and to learn more about their mission (there's also a discount code at the end if you're interested in the collection)!

holiday gift guide 2017 | beauty edition

HEY GUYS! It's already well into November, which means it's basically Christmas! I LOVE Christmas with a fiery and slightly scary passion - I started listening to Christmas music the day after Halloween and my Christmas lights will be going up any day now. One of my favorite things to do every year to prep for Christmas is to put together a series of gift guides leading up to Christmas. I love the thrill of shopping around for the best gifts that will make my loved ones and yours smile, and sometimes I end up picking out a few things to gift to myself (oops). If you're ready to start shopping for presents, keep on reading and come back every week until Christmas for more gift guides with different themes. This week on the This Is Yna holiday gift guides, we're talking beauty! It's perfect timing since we're in the middle of the Sephora fall sale so if you want to snag these items at a discount, now's the time! I personally either have and love or badly want all of the items in this gift guide, so trust that they're going to make the beauty-lovers in your life very happy.

fenty beauty review

Hey you, welcome (or welcome back) to my blog! If you’ve been here before, you may have noticed that it all looks a little different. I just redesigned it (hence the month off from posting anything) and while I am still working on a few more tweaks, I hope you like it and are finding it easy to navigate. If you have any questions or feedback, please let me know in the comments! Anyway - onto the point of this post! Everyone has been raving about the new Fenty Beauty line and I am no exception to this. I’ve spent a few weeks playing with the products that I purchased, so keep reading for a thorough review of how I’ve liked the products that I tried out and my overall thoughts about Rihanna's collection!

petite creators you should follow

Hey guys! You all probably know by now that I'm tiny af - 4'9" to be exact - so of course I have a lot of love for other petite creators. It's hard putting out content in an industry dominated by tall girls, but we make it work. It can be difficult finding style inspiration when you're extra short, so I wanted to provide a resource you can go to if you're looking to see how certain looks and styles of clothing look on shorter heights. Not all of the bloggers in this list are just fashion bloggers either - there are lots of lifestyle bloggers who do other things besides drool over clothes like I do. Petite content creators are awesome all around. Please bookmark this post if you're a petite gal looking for inspiration for dressing for your height or just want more similarly short ladies to "look up" to. I've included everyone's height for reference and I'll be updating it as I find more petite bloggers. Enjoy this post and make sure to share it with other petite ladies in your life!

karrueche x colourpop she shadow palette

Hey guys! I keep holding off on posting this beauty review since I feel bad about writing about something that's constantly sold out, but the Karrueche x ColourPop She pressed powder shadow palette was actually one of my favorite makeup products from the summer so I decided to go ahead and post it. If you're interested in the palette after reading this, I'd suggest keeping an eye on ColourPop's Instagram for restock information. I also picked up a couple other things when I ordered the palette (they might be sold out, but it's potentially worth waiting for a restock) so if you're still interested in learning more about these affordable makeup items, please keep reading!
