winter beauty favorites

As I write this, I'm in bed recovering from the flu - apparently God heard and answered my prayers of "please let my little sister get better and just give me her flu" so ironically I haven't touched many of my beauty products in a week and my skin is a mess. Once I'm better, I'll definitely be coating my face with these favorites, which all served me well this winter when my skin was a bit less crusty and sensitive from constant nose-blowing. These beauty favorites also aren't winter-specific so I'll be using them year-round but I did acquire them and/or use them a lot in the past few months. Hopefully winter isn't going to last much longer (despite what the groundhog said) because I'm tired of getting sick and would love to go out without covering my face (and makeup) with a scarf. I hope you enjoy this deep dive into my recent favorite makeup and skincare products!

summer favorites

Hey everyone! I gotta be honest with you - this summer was not totally great. I have so many blog posts in my drafts but I haven't had the energy or motivation to finish a lot of them because I'm still recovering from a myriad of injuries. In mid-July, I was in a car accident with Gerome, and then a week after that while still trying to recover, I fell down the stairs. My head was banged up, my back was banged up, my tailbone was banged up, my lungs were banged up, and my ribcage was banged up. I just went back to work this past week and also went on a short early birthday trip for Gerome, but before that, I rarely left my bed. On the bright side, there were a few days where I felt okay this summer, so I did end up doing some fun things and acquiring some favorites. I felt like I should try to compile a little favorites post for y'all because I have been out of commission for so long. This is a short one, but I'll be back soon with more! I hope you enjoy this post - please give it a like at the end if you do!

app favorites

Hey, you! Are you reading this blog post on your phone? According to my analytics, you probably are. You're probably on your phone all the time because it's more seamless and convenient than doing things on your computer. I remember having a Nokia Sidekick when I was really young and loving it and now, phones are even cooler. The best thing about phones these days are all the different apps - you can never really get bored if you have a phone and good wifi. The apps in this post are a bunch of apps that I use all the time - some I've used since first getting my iPhone and there are also a few that I've discovered recently but am really enjoying. If you're tired of scrolling through Instagram and are looking for new apps to download or re-discover, keep reading!

mascara favorites + givenchy noir interdit

Recently, I was kindly sent the new Givenchy Noir Interdit mascara to review, so I decided to go through my mascara collection and pick out my favorites to see how this new one stacked up against the best ones from my collection. Givenchy's Noir Interdit mascara has an innovative wand that helps add length to your lashes by bending to a right angle so you can get closer to the roots of your lashes. I have very short, stick-straight Asian eyelashes so great mascaras are a must in my makeup collection. I can't be bothered to wear false lashes all the time, so I look for mascaras that add length and volume while also holding a curl. It's usually a lot to ask for all three qualities, but I think all these mascaras do a great job on my lashes.

april favorites

Hey guys, happy May! The year seems to be going by in a blur, so it feels really weird that I'm doing an April favorites when I still haven't gotten used to writing "2017" when filling in dates. I just turned 23 at the end of April, so I definitely treated myself to lots of things and experiences in an attempt to enjoy my last month of being 22 as much as possible. This month I want to blog way more than I did in April, so here's a favorites post to start the month off. I hope you enjoy it!

march favorites

Hey y'all! It's April, which is usually my favorite month of the year since it's my birthday month :) I'm not sure how I feel about this April yet because the weather has been all over the place and I'm turning 23 this year which isn't particularly exciting in any way. Regardless - new month, new favorites post. I don't always do favorites posts since I'm not sure I have enough things I really really enjoy most months to warrant a whole favorites post. March happened to be a month that I did enjoy a fair amount of things, so I hope you enjoy reading about my favorites from last month!
