Spring Must-Haves!

It’s about time the spring weather is finally in full swing. Unlike most, I’ll sorta miss the chilly weather. I love my jeans and cozy sweaters, shorts and tees just don’t cut it for me some days. I definitely try to work the jean and flip-flop look for as long as the heat allows me to. However, now that it is officially spring I listed some of my favorite, must-have spring products!

I was fortunate enough to work with the brand Harry’s  on this post and I know if you’re familiar with the brand you may be thinking, why are you using men’s razors or products? Well, it turns out Harry’s products were really designed for both men and women. They reached out to me in hopes of a review from a female perspective and I have to say I really loved the product! Truthfully, the razor wasn’t sharp to the point where I could possibly cut myself from pressing too hard (for some reason I thought a men’s razor would be hella sharp). It shaved nicely and the foaming shaving gel smelt not too masculine or feminine. Definitely, would recommend Harry’s products, and that’s my honest opinion!

Spring Must-Haves!

1. DREAM PURE BB CREAM: I have super sensitive, pale, acne-prone skin and I have been using this for two years and nothing works better on my skin. I hate how cakey foundations is, this product really just makes you look fresh faced for hours, feels super light too! Major plus salicylic acid (acne treatment).

2. HOOLA MATTE BRONZER: Okay so I love/hate this product. Love because this product is versatile, I can put this in my crease to warm up my eyes but I also hate it because this product can easily be too dark on my skin. I really need to get my hands on the new Hoola Lite Matte Bronzer, probably perfect for paler skin tones.

3. WET N WILD MEGALAST NAIL COLOR: Megalast? Definitely not. Although I’ve tried every nail brand on the market and honestly they all chip and wear down (I’m more of a gel nail kinda girl, they stay sooo much longer!) I haven’t had luck with any of the higher end polishes so I have turned to the cheaper ones for a quick paint. I really love the Wet Wild polish because it wears just as long as other polishes. Of course, it chips and doesn’t last a full week but the color is perfect for the time I need it to be and comes off super easy with nail polisher remover. This one is a mauvey tone, I love mauve all year round (bottle doesn’t say exact color).

4. COLOR SENSATIONAL INTI-MATTE NUDES: Love this color (ofc another mauve), it’s creamy and is long wearing.

5. NIPPIES SKIN: I love this product and I’m so sorry if it’s TMI but ohhh myy gooooosh best product ever!! Such a must have, they stick better than all the others and the wear over and over again! Look at it, and ladies you’ll know what they’re for.

6. KAMMI PEEP TOE BOOTIE: Well I love these, I like the brown but I preferably love the black. I wore them in by walking around NYC (awful f*cking idea). I had blisters, bad, bad, bad blisters but I survived. I love the neutral color and how they can be worn on warm or chilly occasions.

7. WINSTON SET SHAVING SET: Such a sleek looking razor. It’s quite heavy but I really love the color and look of it, I don’t really mind the weight to it. Shaves well, nothing really significant.

8. LIVE ORIGINAL: Well this is just a good read so I thought I’d include it. If you’re not religious or Christian it may not be your pick but Sadie Robinson (Duck Dynasty) tells a story through her values, lessons, and beliefs as a teenager.

Zaful & Rosegal Review!

I recently had the opportunity to work with two online stores/boutiques. I have previously worked with Zaful on a post so when they reached out to me again, I figured I’d try some more pieces out. My previous post with Zaful can be found here.

My first Zaful find was a dark, burgundy, velvet bodysuit with a low scoop open back. I loved this item because it was comfy and it could’ve been dressed up or down. In the pictures below I styled it with a denim black skirt with buttons down the middle. My suggestion for the winter is that you wear a cardigan to keep you toasty and bundled up, trust me New Jerseyans the low teens are on their way.  Below you will find that I also paired the black skirt with another more simplistic bodysuit. The black bodysuit looks similar to a camisole but the straps are set farther apart, this adds a more modern, tasteful change to a simple piece. The final piece from Zaful was a thin, white pullover with a little detailing by the side upper chest. I love the white pullover because I can throw it on with jeans, sneakers or slip-ons and still look put together and presentable. I definitely give the website a 8 out of 10, the shipping was way better than previously, everything was true to size and the quality of each piece was pretty good!

From Rosegal I received a black, satin looking top with a criss-cross back and an extremely soft and fluffy hooded cardigan. I am OBSESSED with the gigantic cardigan (out of stock). It totally feels like I’m wrapped in a blanket and it’s so cute and wearable! On the other hand, the black satin top didn’t do it for me. Personally, it was ill fitting across my chest and around my armpit and the odd material kind of stuck to my body oddly. For accessories I received a velvet, lavender choker and lobe cuffed earings. The earrings were a miss but the choker was a hit. All in all, I’d give the online store a 6 out of 10. You really have to hunt for good pieces on their site although, that big cardigan OBSESSED! *click any of the blue words to be re-routed to the item on the featured site.*

December Favorites!

Happy New Year! Here is a bunch of products and clothing items I’ve been loving in December. It hasn’t been the chilliest of December’s for New Jersey but I am waiting any second now for a blizzard.

Every Christmas my Aunt and Uncle get me perfume and every year they pick out the absolute best scents. I tend to like stronger, harsher scents. I hate floral, girly scents so this one is just perfect! This one by Calvin Klein will definitely be a staple for more dressy occasions.

This by far one of my favorite Christmas gifts. It is the cutest, coziest pullover and I love it. I can’t help but feel like a big teddy bear while wearing it. It’s from Southern Shirt, unfortunately right now it is out of stock.

I was in desperate need of casual shoes I could slip on with just about anything. Fortunately, I found these Steve Madden slip ons in grey!

My favorite lip products this month are the Nivea Recovery chapstick and the Maybelline 015 Born With It lipstick. The Nivea chapstick has been essential during these cold months. So that my lips don’t get chapped overnight, I apply this right before bed. It is the best chapstick I’ve used to date, plus has the benefits of SPF. The Maybelline lipstick I apply before school or before going out. It’s a neutral shade that I usually add gloss over, for a natural pinkish tone.

My final favorite for the month of December is the new Naked Urban Decay Smoky palette. I’ve been loving the shimmery golds but also have been appreciating the warmer, darker tones for the winter time. I recommend having a good primer underneath so the shadows have something to stick to, they’re not creamy. My one negative comment is that there is a lot of drop out that falls under your eyes. When using this product I recommend doing your eyes first so any drop out you can clean with a makeup wipe after.

Transition into Fall w/ Zaful

Yay! Fall has finally taken full affect. With some areas still a little warm, I wanted to create looks that could be worked into fall and summer. The online store Zaful was kind enough to send me a bunch of different pieces of clothing to try out.

In the beginning I choose things that had been out of stock, I wasn’t notified and had to figure that out on my own. Once I noticed I contacted customer service where they had me choose new items. Customer service worked extremely well with me and once the pieces came in I realized it was worth the small hassle.

Delivery took about 2 weeks and some items did come separately, all together I received 3 separate bags. When you first open your package you will most likely notice the extreme wrinkles in each piece of clothing. Fortunately, once ironed the items look 100% perfect. For the most part the pieces were true to size, the site is very inexpensive making it affordable for nearly anyone. I definitely will be purchasing from this site sometime soon.
