Why I started my blog

For a long time now I wanted to start blogging and have tried blogging a few times before but I never had time to keep everything up to date plus I didn’t even really like the content I had. However, now I have decided to really work on my blog and do my best to have lots of great and original content for everyone!

I’m really excited to post everything because I just have so much to share! For my blog I will have lots of lifestyle, fashion, beauty, baking, and inspirational posts. I am new at this so not everything will be perfect but I still hope whoever visits my blog will be inspired. Not only am I blogging to inspire others but I am also blogging as an outlet for myself. I have a lot of thoughts and ideas trapped in my mind so why not write it all down in my own blog! Oh and I love buying makeup, putting outfits together, and baking so expect a lot of that on my blog!

I am beyond excited for this blog (you don’t even know)! I hope you enjoy reading!

Don’t be afraid…

I am supposed to be writing a paper right now but somehow while looking for sources for my research paper I managed to open up my blog randomly. I haven’t been on here or posted for months. Probably because I have been so busy with university or I don’t know maybe… to be completely honest maybe I just got bored of my blog.

I don’t normally do posts like this on my blog sharing my feelings but it does not really matter… I am having trouble writing my paper since I just have too many thoughts. I can’t seem to be able to focus. I know I don’t have much time left to finish it (247/1,500 words) but I just need somewhere to share how I feel. I never share my feelings with anybody, not that I don’t have anyone it is just I don’t really like to talk. I hate talking about how I feel…but at the same time bottling up my feelings is not going to help. It most definitely makes everything worse.

That is my problem I never speak. It might not seem like a big deal to some people but for me it is different. It is just hard. It is hard to talk. I am scared of it. Why? I have no idea maybe I feel like people will judge me. It is really hard to say what’s on your mind when you are too afraid to open your mouth in the first place and it just leaves you feeling horrible inside.  I feel like I have lost a lot of opportunities in my life just because I was too scared to open my mouth and I am sure I won’t be as successful and happy as I want to be if I don’t make a change. It is really hard to say what’s on your mind when you are too afraid to open your mouth in the first place.  I am just tired of this.

When I turned 20 I wrote a post listing 20 goals I have before turning 21 in January. Looking back at it I realized that I was able to achieve most of those goals. I have not completed each one completely but I am getting there. Seeing that I was able to at least achieve that much gives me hope to keep going. I feel like writing down a goal and having it somewhere where you always look really helps. This is why tonight I am going to make a new goal for myself which I am hopeful that I will 100% achieve. My goal is to not be afraid to talk. It is time I made a change and started to live my life without being afraid. Who cares what anyone thinks. I just have to be myself if I want to be happy. 🙂

If anyone actually read this far thank you for reading my thoughts. Now that my mind is clear I should go back to actually writing my paper for tomorrow!

Cluse Watch

cluse watch

For a couple of weeks now I have been on the hunt for a new watch. Recently I went to Nordstrom and finally found the cutest watch! It has a super cute gold strap and a black screen. Since almost all of my jewelry is gold colored, the gold makes the watch easy to match. The watch is also easy to match with lots of different outfits. A gold watch can bring any outfit together. I feel like this watch would look cute with either a fancy or casual outfit. I love how the black screen really makes the gold stand out! I also really love the style of the gold strap. It makes the watch extra cute and different from other gold watches. I think Cluse watches are super cute in general. So happy to have found this one! Love it!

Lancôme Hypnose Drama Mascara

flower 1

Ever since I started using Lancôme’s mascaras I have been obsessed with them! I have already reviewed the Hypnose Doll Lashes (Click the link here for the post on Hypnose Doll Lashes)  mascara from Lancôme and it is one of my favorites. I decided to try their Hypnose Drama Mascara because I wanted a mascara that would give my lashes more volume. When I tried this mascara I noticed that not only does it have a big brush but that it also has a slight curve to it. The curve really helps to curl my lashes and the big brush helps to give my lashes the volume I was looking for! Just like the Doll lashes Lancôme mascara this one also lasts the entire day and you can easily remove it. I like to remove my mascara with baby shampoo. I do like this mascara more than the Doll lashes one but if you like a natural look then the Doll lashes would be a better option. I am obsessed with the Hypnose drama Mascara at the moment though. I had to buy another one since I loved it so much!

I will be reviewing the new Lancôme mascara called ‘Monsieur Big’ soon. I have been trying a sample one and have been loving it! (I think I might even be liking it more than the Hypnose drama!) I recently purchased the full size so the post will be up very soon on my blog! Thank you so much for reading! If you like you can follow my Blog or Instagram 🙂

Favorite Guess purse & wallet

guees baf

It has been a while since I last posted… my last post was around March and now it’s July. Time went by so fast! During my finals week I had no time to post and after it ended I had no motivation to post anything. Now it’s summer so I have no excuses not to post haha. To be honest I really missed blogging during this time. Hopefully I will be posting more!

A while back I visited Guess and found this super cute tiny jean wallet. Even though I really loved it my friend told me I should get another style so I put it back. But after looking through the entire store, I found myself going back to the wallet because I just couldn’t get it out of my mind. I am so happy I went with what I liked and bought it because I would have 100% regretted not getting it! Always go with what YOU love!

After that, about a week ago I went to TJ Maxx to look for a small black purse but as I was looking through the purses I saw in the back that there was one that looked exactly like my wallet. I brought it out and it was a jean guess purse! Even though it wasn’t the black purse I was looking for I was still so happy because I had found a purse for my favorite wallet! I am so happy I bought the wallet that I really liked because I know I would have regretted not buying it after seeing this purse. I immediately knew I had to buy the matching purse! Who knew I would find a purse exactly like my wallet months later! 🙂

I am obsessed with both my jean wallet and purse! I have always loved bags that had a jean material but I never owned one. That’s why when I saw the wallet I just had to buy it. The wallet is small but has lots of room to store everything. Same with the purse, it is just the right size to fit everything without it being too big or too small. I also love how it is a cross body purse. All of my purses are cross body haha. I also love the pattern and the use of different jean colors. I think it makes it look so cool! But my favorite part of this bag is the material… I am OBSESSED with the jean. Love the feel of the material and the look. I think it is a great purse for summer or winter.  Love love love it haha.

Thanks for reading! I will be posting more since I am not doing much this summer haha. If you like to you can follow my blog and my Instagram for more posts! Hope you all are having a great summer. 🙂

Favorite BCBG Coat

img_6347

I cannot believe it is already March! How has time gone by so fast?! I am a little sad that Winter is ending but I am excited for Spring and warmer weather! I love all the blossoms during the Spring, it is so beautiful! Even though the weather is getting better the cold doesn’t want to leave just yet! All of Autumn and Winter I tried looking for a good coat but I just could not find one I liked until near the end of January I came across this super cute BCBG coat! When I found this coat it was at the exact time when the store was closing haha. They had turned off most of the lights in the store so I had no time to try it on! I had to try it on as I was walking towards the cashier to pay but in that little amount of time I fell in love with it and knew it would be a mistake if I didn’t buy it! Once I got home I tried it on more and I loved it even more! I really love how it not only keeps you warm but it is also light weight! I hate it when a coat is really heavy. I also love how it’s a simple black color so that I can wear it with anything. I feel like the zippers and the belt (which is my favorite part) give the coat some style! The material is wind and rain proof so I can wear it in any weather. It also has a hood! I’m so glad I found this coat because it has been the only coat I have been wearing ever since I have bought it!

This was my first outfit post on my blog, I hope you liked it! I’m excited to post more very soon! Thank you for reading! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Lancôme Face Cleanser

lancome-face-wash

I usually don’t use a face wash but this time I decided to try one after my mom recently bought one for herself from Lancôme. I love Lancôme’s makeup and this face wash looked like it would be a good one so I had to try it out! Every night before I sleep I normally just wash my face with a simple Dove bar soap and clean my eye makeup with baby shampoo. That night though I borrowed the cleanser from my mom and included it in my night routine. After I cleaned my makeup with baby shampoo and washed my face with my Dove bar soap I went ahead and put a tiny amount of the cleanser all over my face. It is a creamy texture and does slightly foam when you rub it all over your face so you don’t need a lot of product! A little goes a long way with this cleanser! After I just took a wash cloth and gently exfoliated my face and washed it all off. After using this cleanser I instantly felt like my face was very clean. My face looked and felt cleaner than the days when I didn’t use this cleanser. Not only that but my face felt really soft after! The cleanser has a really subtle kind of rose/flower smell so it is real comforting which I like especially for night time. The one I have is for dry skin. My skin type is normal but it does get dry during the winter. This product doesn’t make my face oily at all and doesn’t make it too dry. I do need to moisturize my face afterwards though! Overall I think this cleanser is amazing and never gave it back to my mom since I love it so much (she can borrow it though haha)! I actually get excited to use it every night before bed! Which cleanser do you like to use (if you do)? Thank you so much for reading!

How my Makeup Lasts all Day

setting-spray

I have days when I am out the entire day and I don’t have time to touch up my makeup. Whenever I wear makeup I notice it all disappearing in a short amount of time so I decided to try the NYX long lasting setting spray. I wasn’t sure if it would work but I decided to try it anyways. I sprayed it on my makeup before going to University at 9 am and by the afternoon around 5 pm when I got home my makeup was mostly all still on! When I didn’t use the spray I would have no makeup on my face by the time I got back home. I am so happy that this product worked for me! It really does help my makeup to stay put the entire day!  There is a dewy and matte spray. I decided to get the dewy spray because I like how it gives your face a little glow. I feel like the dewy spray doesn’t make my face look dry. If you’re looking for something that will help you keep your makeup on the entire day I suggest you try this product! Also it is only $8 so it’s worth giving it a try! This setting spray has changed my life haha! I love it! What tips do you guys have for having your makeup last all day?!

Thanks for reading!

P.S. I haven’t been blogging as much as usual just because I have been so busy with University but I am back and will be blogging more!
