December Favorites!!!

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by to my blog. Today I want to share with you guys my December favorites. Let's just jump right into it.
Makeup/ Face/Scent
First favorite I want to talk about is the Clean & Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent Toner on your left hand side of the photo above. Love this toner it takes off all of the extra makeup on my face that my cleanser didn't get off. Plus it also helps keep my acne at bae. This toner does make my skin feel a little dry and tight after using it,but that could be because this toner does have salicylic acid in it. I found myself putting on moisturizer after. Overall I really have been enjoying this toner and would repurchase it again.

Next favorite item that I loved this month was my Milani Baked Blush (Luminoso). This blush is so inexpensive but the quality of this item is amazing. Its so pigmented and not chalky like some other drug store blushes I have tried out in the past. The color of this blush is a pretty warm pink that gives you this beautiful flush and glow to your cheeks. Definitely a blush I will keep re buying.

The last item in this category are my Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black and White Perfumes. You guys these perfumes are amazing!!!! I first heard about these perfumes from MakeupbyTiffanyD if you don't know who she is. She is also a fellow blogger and also as a youtube channel. After hearing all of the amazing stuff she said about this item and how much she loves it. I had to go out and get me some and try it out. Was she right! These perfumes smell amazing separately or layed together. Which is the way I have been wearing them since I bought them. As I am sure you can see from the photo above these are not full sized bottles. They are the traveled sized ones, since I don't wear perfume that often. These are different in the sense I haven't stopped wearing them! Love them :)  
Makeup Brushes 
Last but not least favorites from this past month have been these two makeup brushes above. I just want to say before I get started talking about these items is that I am not going to say much since I am planning on doing a whole blog post just talking about these two makeup brushes. So be sure to look out for that post soon. Back to my two favorite makeup brushes. First is the Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush. This brush is super dense and soft. Its a get buffer brush. Love using it with foundation since it gives you these beautiful airbrush finish hence the name of the brush. Overall a great brush so worth the money.

Chanel Number Four Blush Brush. A other great brush super soft to the touch. This brush picks up product so easily. This brush I find works best if you lay the blush on your cheeks then lightly blend it out. Just a great brush a little more on the expensive side of makeup brushes but so wroth the money! 

That's all of my December favorites. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and found it helpful if you were thinking about picking up any of these items for yourself. Don't forget to follow my blog so you know when new blog post go up. Talk you guys soon.

A Sweater Haul From ForEver21, GAP + MORE!!!

Hey everyone,Today for my blog post I want to share with you a few sweaters and a other item that I have picked up the last few weeks. I was going thru my closet a month ago and realized I don't really have any sweaters to wear this winter season. If you have been following me on Instagram then you have already seen these sweaters been put into whole outfits. And if you don't follow me on Instagram what are you waiting for ? My Instagram is Shopaholic8450 Without further more lets get into this haul.
 Here are all of the sweaters I have picked up in the last few weeks. I am going to try list prices for everything shown here if I don't I am sorry that just means I couldn't find that piece of clothing item on line. Alright starting on the left hand corner of the picture above. First is this white sweater with two small splits on each side of it. Very comfortable sweater to wear a little on the heavy side. Love the braided detail that goes down this sweater. This sweater was from Forever21 it was ($27.90).

Next is this black and white stripe sweater from GAP. This a very long sweater on me it almost looks like dress I would wear it like a dress but it as two very long splits on the side of it so that is the reason I cant really wear it like a sweater dress. If you are thinking about getting this clothing item for yourself I would say go down a size. I wore this past Sunday to a family dinner gathering and it was so comfortable, soft and warm. The sleeves are tighter then body just so it balances it out. This clothing item was ($39.99).

The next sweater in the picture above is this big chunky turtle neck sweater it also as the little detail to it of the braids going down the shirt. I don't normally like turtle necks since I feel like I am beaning chocked. This turtle neck is not like other turtle necks the turtle neck on this sweater lays more flat on your chest so it doesn't really cover your neck much. Super comfortable and oh my gosh is it warm no need a jacket when wearing this. This sweater is from Forever21 it was ($12.99) Not bad of a price at all.

Last sweater I want to talk about is this dark gray one from American Eagle. un like the other sweaters that I have talked about in this haul this one is on the lite side of a sweater. Not sure if you can really tell from the photo but this sweater as zippers on the side instead of splits. This one was a other comfortable sweater a little more form fitting to the body. This clothing is about ($44.95)

 The last item shown above is not a sweater obviously lol... Its a pair of jeggings from American Eagle. These are my first pair of them to be honest I was always scared of jeggings because they seem really tight and a little uncomfortable. Man was I wrong! These are super comfortable and of course tight but since these are very stretchy I feel like I can wear them all day and not be uncomfortable in them. If anyone of you guys were wondering what bottoms I wore with all of these sweaters, that would be these jeggins.They looked great with every single item. This jeggins were ($39.99).

That's all for this clothing haul. Hope you guys enjoyed this haul. And found a clothing item that you might want to go out and get for yourself.

Outfit Of The Day! From This Past Weekend...

Hey everyone! For today's blog post I want to show you guys a outfit that I wore this past weekend for a family gathering. The sweater and jeggings that I am going to show you in this outfit is going to be in a haul post next week. So make sure you come back to my blog next week to see what I picked up in that haul. Ok without further more lets get to the outfit of the day.
First I want to say excuse the photo for the quality and lighting I know its not my greatest photo. I wasn't going to post this on here since I already have this photo on my Instgram. So if you follow me on there then you have seen this already. I really do like this outfit and I thought I would share what I wore this past weekend with you guys since not all of you know I have a instgram. Anyways lets get into the outfit. 

For top I wore this long almost looks like dress on me sweater from GAP. Its a black sweater with whites stripes on it. Its super comfortable and soft. The body to this sweater is bagging but the arms are tighter so it all balances out. It also as two big splits on each side. This sweater would look great with leggings since it covers your front and back.

 Bottoms I wore my jeggings from American Eagle. These are my very first pair of jeggings that I have own and I love them, they are super comfortable and super stretchy which I like when jeans are tighter.

Accessories I just wore my Burberry scarf since it was super chilly that day and I wanted a little bit more wramth. Last but not least I wore these light brown boots that I have had for years now but don't really wear them at often since they are a little bit uncomfortable on my feet. I cant explain to much since they are super cute. They have two buckles on each of the boots so you can tighten them if they feel loose on you, they also have a one and half inch heel to them. So it gives me a little bit of height. :)

That's my outfit of the day from this past weekend. Hope you guys enjoyed this post. As always make sure you are following my blog so you know when new posts go up. Let me know in a comment below if you guys would like to see more of these outfits of the day post? Talk to you guys soon.

UPDATE POST ON THE LAURA MERCIER TINTED MOISTURIZER, COVERGIRL THE SUPERSIZER MASCARA

Hey everyone! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Today I am going to do a updated post on the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and the Cover Girl Supersizer Mascara that I hauled a few weeks ago and said I was going to do on a update on them and let you guys know what were my thoughts on them and how I like them. Ok without further a due lets just get started.
First I am going to start off with the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with spf 20. The one that I have and that is in the picture is just a sample size one that I got from sephora with my beauty insider points. They gave me the shade (Nude) which I found to be to light for my skin tone so that was a little disappointing, since I was really excited about this item.  

The good things I can say about the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is that it blends really easy and smooth into your skin. It is also a light weight formula so it wont feel heavy on the skin which to me is always a really great thing. This tinted moisturizer gave my skin a really pretty dewy glow to my skin. I used my beauty blender to apply this if any of you guys were curious. This product doesn't give you a white cast on your face when you want to take pictures since I find that most face items with spf in it as a tendency to do that. Finally the question that most of you are wondering would I repurchase this item again? My answer would have to be yes I would I was very happy with this tinted moisturizer. I would just get a shade darker.

The last item I want to give you guys on a update on is the CoverGirl SuperSizer Mascara. The first thing I noticed about this mascara right away when I opened it is the brush. Its a very thin brush that flares out at the start of the brush. Also it as little spikes on the brush that act like a comb to your lashes so that helps to take away any clumps that might happen when applying it and also does a great job on separating your lashes but giving you lots of volume.

The last two things that I want to say about this brush is that it is rubber so it bends really easy and since its so thin it makes it the perfect brush to get those little lashes in the concers of your eyes. This mascara is a very dry mascara so if you don't like that then this mascara might not be for you. Not sure if I mention this already but its a very nice easy mascara to work with and it comes off at night super easy. I will be repurchasing this product again.

That's all for this update. Hope you guys enjoyed reading this post and found it helpful if you were thinking about buying these items for yourself. Let me know in the comments below if you have already tried this products out and what were your thoughts on them I would love to know.
