I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22!

Since my birthday is this Sunday I thought I would put together a little collage that have been on my wish list for a bit. Now I don’t know about you but I like nice things but I also really love the little things in life. If you know me, you know that I’m obsessed with stationary. So it’s no surprise that it made it to my birthday wish list.

Mini Life Update: I actually ended up coming back to stl to celebrate my birthday weekend at The Bull float trip (my first float trip) with some pretty amazing people, if I do say so myself. It feels a little weird because around this time of year I would be back in town to go to school. But in all honestly, I’m just happy to be spending it with some of the people I love most in life.

Hers and His:White Button Up

Happy hump day everyone,

Look who I convinced to do a photo shoot with me! I’m pretty lucky to have this guy in my life and have him not appose to getting a little out of his comfort zone. It was a little awkward for him at first but I think he got the hang of being in front of the camera.

Here’s to our first Hers and His post and many to come in the future.

Splurge vs. Save

 Happy tuesday everyone,
Just wanted to share a little list of things I have found to either save money on or to spend a little more in order to get the best result of a product.
Splurge vs. Save

Splurge 

  • Primer- This is the foundation to your whole makeup look, if you have a great primer then your makeup will last all day.
  • Foundation- Since your foundation is the first thing you apply and then the rest of you makeup, it’s important to have one that run during the day because all your makeup will be off.
  • Finishing Spray- This is my lifesaver and something that I use pretty much everyday. Finishing spray is essentially hairspray for your face and will hold everything in for the day. (This is great for all day events)
  • Makeup Brushes- I have found that makeup brushes are like like paint brushes, the better the brush the better the preciseness of the painting. So in that content, think of your face as a canvas and your makeup brushes as your tools to paint a pretty picture, so having higher quality makeup brushes really does matter.
  • Eyeshadow- Though you may think you shouldn’t be spending too much on eyeshadow, it’s something you may want to consider because  higher end eyeshadows have higher pigmentation so the color will last longer.

Save

  • Lipstick- I’ve realized that their are several dupes out there for almost every product and lipstick has become my favorite drugstore product to buy. You can easily find lipsticks that have high pigmentation and are long lasting.
  • Setting Powder- This is one of the products that I always apply after I have finished my makeup look to help set it all but any powder works.
  • Nail Polish- Honestly, anyone can make a cheap nail polish look good, as long as you add a finishing coat.
  • Mascara- My favorite kind of mascara has alway been from the drug store and as much as I try new ones I always come back to my original mascara.
  • Eyelashes- False lashes always make the finishing look complete, but you really don’t have to spend much as long as you have a good lash glue, they will stick on all day.
  • Lip Balm- Just like the lipstick, their are various of dupes that work just as good as any high end lip balms.

Don’t get me wrong I have tried all makeup products in both high end and drug store but these have been what I have found is worth my buck.

Also one tip that I recommend is always returning a product you didn’t like, even if it’s just a drugstore product (this includes Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, Target, etc.) 

As always, thank you for reading

Funny Fridays #1

addtext_com_MTMyMDMxMzQ0Njg3

For those of you that know me, you know that I love to laugh and that I spend way too much time on the internet finding funny videos. Since I’m usually the friend who finds funny videos and shares them with my friends, I thought I share them with you. I’ll also occasionally post things that just make me smile and feel all warm and fuzzy inside and lets be honest we all need that every now and then. So here is the first of many Funny Fridays to come, I hope you have some laughs and have a wonderful weekend!

 I’m a HUGE Jimmy Fallon fan and try to watch all of his videos on YouTube because I usually miss his show, so here’s a few of my favorite #hashtag videos

I love Instagram and all the filters you can add in order to make everything prettier, but let’s be honest we all know those people who can get a little crazy with it. College Humor does an excellent job in summing up the Instagram craze in less than 3 minutes…

And lastly, if funny baby videos are your thing, you’re in for a treat!

Best Friend TAG

IMG_2581

Howdy everyone!

This is a post I’ve wanted to do for a while, especially because I love highlighting the people in my life who are important to me. Cassi is one of those people who means the world to me and I could talk about for hours and I only say that because we lived with each other for 4 years! We met day one of college and have be inseparable ever since, until recently of course when I moved away. But as the best friends that we are, we talk at least once a week to catch up and have many plans in the future together.

I’ve seen this kind of thing done by YouTubers but  since I don’t have one I thought my blog was fair game and it would work just as well. So if you want to know a little more about my partner in crime, please keep reading.
