This has been one of my fav hairstyles for who knows how long. I’ve gotten so many compliments while wearing this. Let me tell ya, people know how to make me feel special. This is such an effortless style and kinda looks best when it’s nice and messy. I love that because who has time to make sure every last hair is in place and we all know its not going to stay like that. Or at least mine won’t….
There are so many reasons to be happy! First of all it’s FRIDAY.. hallelujah! Spring has officially sprung here in Texas and I can already feel the heat coming our way, but what I’m most excited about is that I’ve got a collaboration with Francesca’s to share with you today!
Who doesn’t love Francesca’s?! This store has something for everyone and you could spend hours looking at all the goodies. (I’m talkin’ clothes galore and more accessories than you can dream up). One of the coolest things about growing up in the Houston area is that Francesca’s is from this city so I’ve had the opportunity to watch it grow over the years. This place was my go-to in high school and still is. The way it attracts customers of all ages is quite unique, I just can’t get enough!…
I’ve mentioned before that I’m ALL about the good deals and that really applies when it comes to my beauty products. I’m always on the hunt for something that’s affordable yet good quality….
This shirt has been dubbed my circus shirt, but I’m thinking more tropical getaway? Either way, I’m kinda in love! I scored this beauty from Forever 21 for an awesome deal. (Side note: Check out their store and online if you haven’t in a while, they have some pretty great new arrivals.) Also, have you noticed that they’ve been adding in more high-end items as of recent? This pair of shoes caught me off guard and pretty excited to see some more variety. Can’t get enough of what they’ve been up to lately….
This past weekend I found myself in Waco, Texas. One of my best friends started Law School at Baylor in the Fall so it was about time for a quick visit. There’s something about spending a couple days with the best of pals that’ll leave you refreshed and filled with joy! …
I thought it might be fun to show you a few of my favorite beauty products a little bit at a time. To start us off I figured I would share two picks that are my must-haves.
If you’re pale like me then bronzer is a necessity. I was turned onto this Too Faced Bronzer while I was in high school and have been using it ever since. It contains a bit of sparkle and has the sweetest chocolatey scent. This may be a bit of a splurge, (yes, $30 is pricey to me.. kinda a cheapskate over here) but I think it’s worth it! I also love that it’s not too harsh, you just need a light dusting to add some color to your face.
Then there’s the almighty Urban Decay Setting Spray. This has been a more recent product that I’ve been using over the last year. I didn’t know what I was missing. All you have to do with this setting spray is apply to your face with just a few sprits after your face make-up but before your eye make-up is on. Then TADA!! I’ve seen a noticeable difference since starting using this. I can actually come home after a full day at work and still have make-up on. Rare.. I know.
What do you think about these products? Have you ever tried them or used similar ones? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
- Have you tried the new Free People app? If you follow me on Instagram then you may have already heard this, but its too good not to keep sharing. I originally downloaded the Free People app because they offer discounts exclusively on there (you know I can’t pass up a good deal) so I thought, why not! In addition to purchasing a thing or two on sale, I also discovered that it is way easier to browse their website on there. That’s a plus! There is also this awesome feature where you can scan the barcode of any of their items and immediately see how others are wearing it. I tried it out when I bought this pair of ripped denim and it was such a great source of inspiration! Already looking forward to trying it out again.
- Have you seen the Pantone Colors of the Year, yet? (I always thought they picked just one but apparently there’s a whole collection.) It’s pretty hard to top last year because I’ve always been a Mauve kinda gal, but there is definitely some competition this year. I love that they created multiple themes for 2016 and one of the picks is none other than this “Blooming Delilah” shade. It’s giving me all kinds of heart eyes over here!!
