5 Beauty Products I'm Loving Right Now...


 
1. Benefit's Rockateur Blush) This is the blush that I've been reaching for almost every time I do my makeup since I got it.  It is the perfect combination of colors for me and adds a nice bronzy, flushed glow to my cheeks.
 
2. Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Smoke) I've never tried any of the Urban Decay eyeliners before but I had heard great things about them so the last time I was at Sephora I picked up a travel set of 3 of their basic colors. My favorite of the three is definitely smoke which is a super silky matte charcoal gray that looks great rimming my eyes without being quite as harsh as black.  
 
3. Lush Mask of Magnaminty) This was my first ever purchase from Lush and even though I cringed a bit handing over $13 for this little tub, the first time I used it I knew it was worth it. My skin felt so smooth and clean and I love using this mask.
 
4. St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion) These lotions are a spray formula which is super quick and convenient. I don't think this will work for me during the winter when I need pretty heavy duty lotion, but this has been working great for me all summer on days I need to moisturize quickly and I don't want greasy hands.
 
5. Stila Lip glaze in Strawberry Lemonade) This is my first ever Stila lip glaze and I am in love. The color is perfect for me and I've been wearing it all the time on it's own or layered over lip colors. It's a natural looking pink with the perfect amount of shimmer, without being overtly glittery.

Currently...

 


 
Reading...
 The Anomaly Series by Krista McGee. If you like dystopian novels I highly recommend this series that's packed with action, romance, and mystery. I'm almost finished the second of the 3 books and I can't put them down.
 
Loving...
Yoga. I've been practicing yoga for a while now but lately I've really been getting into it and challenging myself with more difficult poses. If you've never tried yoga before, this is a great time to start since September is National Yoga Month. Yoga is great because it builds strength, flexibility, and balance without needing any special equipment. You can find yoga workouts online (Pinterest and Youtube are great places to look), but my personal favorite are Jillian Michael's DVDs. I own both and Yoga Meltdown is great for beginners, while Yoga Inferno is a bit more challenging.
 
Craving...
Ben and Jerry's That's my Jam Ice Cream. Seriously if you have not tried this flavor you are missing out, it is so delicious. The person who came up with this flavor deserves all the awards. The chocolate ice cream is rich and creamy but not too sweet and the raspberry ice cream is filled with the perfect amount of chocolate chunks, but what makes it amazing is the core of sweet raspberry jam. Are you craving this stuff now too? :)
 
 
Waiting...
For all my fall TV shows to start up again. This fall I'll be tuning in to Agents of Shield, Arrow, Reign, and The Flash. Right now I'm watching America's Next Top Model and 19 Kids and Counting, which both just started their fall seasons.

NYFW: Spring 2015 #1

 
 
It's that time again! The runway shows are on in New York for the showing of the Spring/Summer collections and as usual I'll be sharing with you some of my favorite looks throughout the course of the week...
 
Josie Natori
The entire Josie Natori collection featured mostly solid color pieces, but don't mistake the monochromatic color schemes for boring. Unique details, embroidery, and draping were allowed to shine by being presented in a single color. Here are my favorite looks/pieces from the collection...
 

I love this jacket, the structure of it is so unique and I think it would look cool paired with some skinny jeans or worn over a printed sheath dress.
 
 
The color of this dress is stunning, especially paired with the model's gorgeous skin tone. The silhouette is fairly conservative but the color and texture on the skirt makes it anything but stuffy.
