My Favorite Amazing Budget Products

I’m always looking for new products that are both high in quality and low in price. This goal can be hard to meet when it comes to makeup. There are so many different formulas and brands that just choosing what to get can be hard all on its own (when the packaging is super cute, the choice is even harder, am I right?). Then, once you’ve finally gotten a product that you think is great, you use it and are very disappointed. I know the struggle! That’s why I’m going to share a few of my favorite budget products that definitely did not disappoint.Read More »

Easy Tips for Back to School (or whenever you’re in a hurry!)

Hey guys! Today is not my usual day for posting, I know, but today is special because my dear friend Abby Faith uploaded her new video to her channel and that video has ME in it. Crazy right?? So I wanted to take this time to introduce Abby to you guys before you head off to watch the video.

Here’s what she looks like (such a cutie, right?)

“I’m Abby Faith. I run a YouTube channel that focuses on making people smile, teaching someone something, and  encouraging people at the same time.”

Abby is a makeup addict like myself and she’s pretty talented at it! Not only is she good at everyday makeup, but she can also do costume makeup as well. I often find myself asking her for advice and opinions on makeup. We also share a love of Doctor Who and we both have red hair. She’s just all around awesome!

So in our video you’ll find some cool tips for easy outfits, simple makeup routines, and organization tips, along with some possibly funny moments (it was my first time filming a video, so the bloopers were plentiful). These tips are great for students, but honestly anyone who needs ideas for easy routines and tips could find them helpful. I hope you guys enjoy!!

Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone Part 2

Awhile back, I let the blogosphere in on a little secret of mine: There are fashion and beauty trends that I’m scared of trying. Shocker, I know! In an attempt to show others that it’s ok to step out of their comfort and challenge them and myself to do so, I listed few things I hadn’t tried out yet (you can find the post here). However, it’s been a couple months and I’ve had opportunities to widen the comfort zone, so it’s time for an update. The trends/items I listed were red lips, high heels, floral print, rompers, and printed shorts. I can say that I have successfully worn four out of the five items! Pretty good, right? So let’s see which items those are…Read More »

A Simple Night Routine

Last week I shared a simple makeup routine (here) with you guys for days at school or when you’ve woken up late and need to save all the time you can, something that happens to me fairly often. Many of you found the routine helpful and enjoyed finding new ways to shorten your time getting ready in the mornings, which I’m very happy about! For this post, though, I’m going to talk about the flip side of the morning makeup routine–taking it all off at night. During the school year, days are long and nights are late. Your energy is depleted and at the end of the day, when the homework may or may not be completed, all you want to do is fall into bed and sleep. In these moments of sleepiness and stress, I am often guilty of not taking off my makeup. My skin is clear and sometimes dry, so I don’t breakout badly. However, random pimples pop up a day or two after my night of sleeping with makeup on. So, to avoid this problem and keep my skin healthy, I developed a simple night routine that only requires two steps (sounds pretty easy, right??) and I am pleased to say that for the last couple of weeks, I have stuck with it and I love the results!
