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!

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!

glossier showroom + phase 1 set

Hi everyone! As you know from my last post, Gerome and I went to New York for a few days this summer. While we were there, I got to visit the Glossier showroom and check out their products in real life. I've only ever ordered from them online before, so it was really cool to play around with all their products before buying them. I ended up getting the Phase 1 Set so in this post I'll talk about the products that come in the set and how I've liked using them so far. If you love Glossier or you've never heard of them before and want to know more, please keep reading!

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!

It seems like everyone and their mother is talking about this sale, but it IS pretty exciting. The Nordstrom anniversary sale is a time when new fall/winter products come out and you can buy them for pretty deep discounts - in early August, the prices go up again. If you like planning ahead for your next season's wardrobe, this is the perfect time to stock up on the things you need or the things you've been saving for and wanting for a while. In this post I go through some of my favorite things in the sale (this is basically my sale wishlist, divided into the store's sale categories)! Public access starts July 21, so start planning now! Sales like this can get pretty overwhelming, so it's always good to go in with a game plan. I hope you enjoy this post! Please leave a comment at the end with what you'll be buying!
