Top 8 Beauty Favorites

I have been using this face wash for the past 8 eight months and I can definitely tell a difference in my skin and acne. I never really had horrible acne but I did have lots of pimples on my t-zone but mostly on my forehead. Since I have been using this I have seen all those pimples go away. I will still get two or three big pimples once or twice a month but this face wash has helped! There are three steps that you use twice a day; a foam cleaner, a liquid lotion, and a clearing cream. 

I have been obsessed with eyeshadow the past couple of months. For Christmas, I asked for this morphe palette which is all glitter. I love it however, I realized that I am not going to want to wear shimmer every day. I want to get the all matte palette next. These palettes are SO pigmented and are pretty cheap too! You get 35 shades for $22, which is a great deal for high-end eyeshadow. These palettes have been all over Instagram and youtube lately. 

three //  Coconut Milk Shampoo & Conditioner

I have been using this for the past two years and I love it. It leaves my hair feeling so smooth, soft, and hydrated. Not only does the coconut milk nourish your hair, the whipped egg whites make your hair stronger. The scent also smells so good so that's a plus.

This is by far the best dupe for the beauty blender that I have found! Regular beauty blenders are $20 and this was only $7. It is orange with a lot of different angles and also super squishy and not hard like some of the fake beauty blenders are. If you don't want to pay $20 for a beauty blender I would highly recommend this.

I honestly have no clue what I would do without mascara. I hardly ever leave my house without it on. If I could choice one makeup product it would definitely be mascara! I got this mascara for Christmas and it is so good. It separates your lashes so well and doesn't leave any clumps. 

This highlighter is probably one of the best ones I have had. It is not a powder, it is a cream "stick". I use it daily and love it because it stays on all day. I usually rub it on my finger so it melts and gets a little softer and then apply it to my cheekbones. 

seven // Micellar water

I love this micellar water. It removes all of the dirt and unclogs your pores. I remember using this for the first time when I washed my face and then used it. I did not realize how much my face wash does not get all the dirt off. I used it and the whole cotton ball was brown and full of dirt! I was so surprised how much this cleanser works. My face feels hydrated and soft after I use this.

eight // Neutrogena wipes

These wipes are the best makeup remover wipes. I use them every morning when I get a little mascara on my eyelid or at night to remove all my makeup. I usually only use one wipe at night and it removes all my face and eye makeup super well. They do not irritate my skin or leave it feeling oily.

Hope y'all enjoyed these beauty favorites!

Spring Dress & Accessories

Dress // Shoes // Watch (similar) // M Braclet  (charm) // Monogrammed Necklace // Deer Necklace (similar)  // Monogrammed Purse 
Happy Sunday y'all! I hope everyone has had a great weekend. I know that I sure have! Today I wanted to share my favorite accessories that I have been wearing a lot lately. I also am sharing a cute dress that I found at Target that's very affordable. It is the perfect spring dress because it is not too light or heavy. The sleeves are a sheer fabric so you won't get hot if it is warm outside. 

I am also showing my favorite accessories. With every outfit, there is always an accessory that you can pair with it. I usually wear either the cute M bracelet from Moon and Lola or my monogrammed necklace daily. Those two accessories match with about any outfit. They are also super easy to just throw on if you are in a hurry or feel you're outfit is a bit on the plain side. I was not able to find my exact Anne Klein watch since I got it last Christmas. However, I was able to find a very similar Anne Klein watch and linked it above. This watch matches with so many outfits because of its simple design and gold and ivory colors. The little delicate deer necklace has also been my current favorite. I can't get over how adorable and cute the deer is. I found it about a month ago on sale in Moon and Lola. I linked a similar one since this was on sale in the store. After moving to NC I found that everything was monogrammed and I was not used to that where I came from. I have adapted and now love monogrammed items! I found this monogrammed envelope purse last summer at a local boutique, so again I was not able to find the exact one online. I linked a similar one from Etsy. You can use it as a clutch or as a purse because it has straps also. 

I hope y'all have enjoyed reading this post and have a great week!

Favorite Off the Shoulder Top

Top // Pants (similar) // Shoes // Clutch (similar)
Happy Friday! Are y'all so excited for the weekend like I am? This is one of my favorite spring looks! I am obsessed with the off the shoulder trend, and this top is the cutest one I have seen so far. It is so girly with the flower detailing and blue coloring. This outfit would be perfect for just a dinner out or a casual day look. It is perfect for spring and summer! It has been pretty warm here these past couple of weeks so I was loving being able to wear this. Now it is back in the 50's and 60's. This weather is NC is crazy and always changing. These shoes are also my current favorites and are very comfortable. I talked abut them in my Spring Wishlist post last week if you want to hear more about them. 

I have a four day weekend, so I have just been working on homework and watching Netflix! Today I also got my ears pierced, so that was really exciting. I am just waiting for spring break to come faster because I am really tired from all this school work! Do y'all have any plans for the weekend? More spring looks will be coming soon, so be sure to check back in on the blog!
