Danielle Guizo – SMELL THE ROSES LONG SLEEVE

My friends know me so well. I got this shirt from my friend for Christmas. I had been dying for this shirt, it is such a basic shirt and easy to wear but very in trend.

Makeup

Morphe Brushes

I did it, I FINALLY tried Morphe Brushed and I LOVEE them. I will have a post coming on all the ones I got.

Books

Apparel

Forever 21 -Plus Size Ribbed Mock Neck Sweater

ASOS – DARLA Pointed Sneakers

Makeup

Ofra Cosmetics – Miami Fever

LOVE this shade, it’s so unique. I saw many beauty bloggers talking about this shade and had to have it. Here is a picture of me wearing it.

Jeffree Star – Androgyny

This shade is part of the holiday collection. I LOVE IT! Perfect for this time of the year. It was darker than I thought but I think that might be because i’m so pale. Here is a picture of me wearing it.

CD

Two of my favorite artists put out CDs this month. I have been listening to them non stop.

One Direction – Made In The A.M.

No secret that 1D is my fav.. I find it really hard to pic my favorite songs on this album. Some of my favorites are, If I Could Fly, Love You Goodbye, What A Feeling, Perfect & Never Enough. AND off the Deluxe edition have all of my favorites, I wish they were on the full length, LOVE Wolves, Temporary Fix & Walking In the Wind so much. So basically I love almost all the songs, there are a few I don’t love too much, but overall an amazing album.

Little Mix – Get Weird

This album is my JAM. I love Little Mix and I love their other albums so much but this is the best album that they have put out so far. I love Grown, OMG, Lighting, Clued Up & The End are my favorites. If you don’t listen to Little Mix and enjoy JAMS then I suggest you give this album a listen.

October Favorites

October Favorites

October has been so much fun. I went to New York City many times this month, for day trips and concerts. Many times to the city means many adventures. These are some of my favorite things I picked up this month. Besides that, nothing else exciting happened this month, I have been busy with back to school.

Apparal

Doc Martens – Magdalena

These shoes are perfect. Comfortable. Just enough of a heel to give a bit of height. They look sleek but still a bit grungy. So many good things to say about these.

Topman x Nick Grimshaw

Love this shirt is is so soft. I love Nick Grimshaw, I wanted to get many things from his collection with Topman but this was my my favorite piece from the collection.

Halsey Tour Shirt

Makeup

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – Moonstone

The perfect shade for my skin tone, I don’t know why I did not own this before now.

Kat Von D – Ink Liner

Same thing with this liner, I don’t know why I did not own this before now. This liner is so black and glides on so easily. I don’t think I will ever use anything else ever again for a wing liner.

Music

5 Seconds Of Summer – Sounds Good Feels Good

Yes, I am a fan of 5SOS.. they went on tour with One Direction for two years so seeing them all the time made me start to like them. I liked their last album and I like this album too, don’t know what one I like better yet. I love a song off this album that is a target edition bonus track “The Story Of Another Us”. Besides that my top five off this album are “Jet Black Heart”. “Waste The Night”, “Castaway”, “Vapor”, & “Permanent Vacation”.

Events

IMG_2238

My best friend and I are very much obsessed with Halsey. We went to her show at Webster Hall. Not only is she beyond talented, she is such a genuine person and you can really tell that she cares about her fans. She put all of herself into her music and performing and you can tell that by watching one of her concerts. Anddd, she liked my picture I posted on Instagram from that night, so she made my year;). I can not wait to see her at Madison Square Garden next year.

September Favorites

September Favorites

September was such a bittersweet month for me. It was so beyond amazing because I had a majority of my concerts for the year happened in September. Then on the other hand it was sad because now they are all over and I started school again this week. But, I am excited to start school again and be back on my school schedule.

Apparel

Gap – 1969 Denim Skirt

I love this skirt so much, love the front button up skirt trend. Perfect skirt for the fall.

Celine – New Audrey Sunglasses

I have a very unhealthy sunglasses obsession. I saw these and I don’t think I have ever loved a pair of sunglasses more.

Makeup

Too Faced – Soleil Matte Bronzer – Milk Chocolate

I really like this bronzer because I am very pale and this is a perfect light shade to bronze and contour with for a pale person.

MAC – Strobe Cream

Love this cream, gives the face a glow that you wont get from any other product.

Events

This month was filled with concerts! I got to see 5 Seconds of Summer, One Direction, Ed Sheeran and my favorite band The Maine. All of them are some of my all time favorite artists to see live. Still can’t believe I got to see them all in a time span of one month, the post concert depression is real.

July Favorties

IMG_7341

July Favorites

July was surprisingly such a good month for me. First off, I started trying to get a blog post out every weekday. It is hard, but I am loving it so much! The next big thing that has been happening in July is that since I am on summer vacation I came up with a very strict schedule for the day that I have been trying to stay on and I absolutely love it! I might write a blog post on how to come up with a strict schedule that fits your lifestyle. It completely changed my summer. I have quite a lot to talk about because a lot of my favorites of the month are events, so let’t get to it!

Makeup

Gerard Cosmetics – Serenity Hydra-Matte Liquid Lipstick

This is one of my favorite YouTubers Manny’s collaboration with Gerard Cosmetics. Love love love this!! Not only is it the perfect shade, it applies so easily, dries matte and actually stays on your lips for a long time.

Becca – Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed / Champagne Pop

Another one of my favorite YouTubers Jaclyn Hill collaborated with Becca and created Champaign Pop. I am obsessed with this hilighter, I have not used anything else since. I wrote a blog post about it here!

Apparel

Moschino Loungewear

I got this on sale from one of my favorite online shopping sites ASOS. I wrote a blog post about it here!

Music

Hozier

Obsessed with this album, it is perfect! I don’t know why it took me so long to actually buy the album and listen to it.

One Direction – Drag Me Down

This song came out last night at like 1AM and I didn’t sleep thanks to One Direction.

Events

Okay, so most of my favorites this month are events. I enjoyed them all so much!

– Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour

– Warped Tour

– Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway with Darren Criss

– Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett Cheek to Cheek Tour

June Favorites

IMG_5875


WOW! June has been absolutely crazy. It has been nonstop between me ending my semester this past week and going to family gatherings (always a lot in June every year). I am finally on summer vacation and don’t go back again until October, so besides reading as many books as I can and watching Game Of Thrones, I will be posting as much more often.


Beauty

Sephora Collection – Face Masks

These have been a life saver this month. The end of the semester is always hard and stressful and it is very important not to forget about your skin. They are so relaxing and cooling for the face. I am attempting to try all of the types.

Apparel

H&M – Flared Skirt

This is the perfect summer skirt, perfect length and so flowly. It won’t stick to your skin and the color is very much in trend.

IMG_5877

Banana Republic

I go to school near a Banana Republic outlet, and during one of my breaks I finally went there and fell in love with the store. They were having a huge sale and I picked up a few things. This black v-neck shirt is perfect for me because it has a thick material and feels so comfortable. If you have never been to Banana Republic you should definitely go and check it out.

IMG_5878

Hair Care

Bumble & Bumble – Surf Spray

It’s offically summer! For me that means beach waves and there is no better way to get it naturally. I love that it comes in two sizes. I first got the small size to see if I liked it, and I did, so then I got the full size. The small one will go on vacations with me.

Music

Tori Kelly – Unbreakable Smile

I first discovered Tori Kelly when she opened for Ed Sheeran at Madison Square Garden in 2013. I loved her music ever since. I was so happy to see that she was finally coming out with a full length album. I love this album so much, she writes about real things and I love her lyrics.

Concert

I went to see Imagine Dragons and Halsey opened up. It was a last minute concert. I went because of Halsey (my new obsession, so I had to go see her even if she was just going to play six songs) but then fell in love with Imagine Dragons. They are some of the best performers I have ever seen and I can’t wait to see them play again.

Beauty

MAC – 150 Brush

This is the perfect powder brush, when you are finished doing your makeup it just blends everything together so nicely and gives a flawless finish.

MAC – Subculture Lipliner

Obsessed! Perfect nude lipliner!!

Apparel

Sub_Urban RIOT – KALE Loose Tee

I have seen this shirt EVERYWHERE! For some reason I was drawn to it and had to have it. It is a very nice material, I purchased my from a Nordstrom store.

Topshop – Floppy Felt Hat

I also purchased this from Nordstrom in the Topshop section. It just reminded me of summer and I thought it would go perfectly with a white outfit on the beach.

Birkenstock – ‘Arizona’ Soft Footbed Sandal

My parents always put me in Birkenstock as a kid. Of course when I was a kid though they weren’t popular and I was the only one kid in my summer camps wearing them. I have not had a pair since I was 13 so I figured that I would invest in a pair since I already knew how well they were made and how comfortable they are.

Music

I went to a few Ed Sheeran concerts this month so I got the tour book. He is my favorite artist and it is coming up on three years since I saw him for the first time. The first time I saw him was June 12, 2012 at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn and there were 500 people there, now this past weekend I saw him at the Barclay”s Center in Brooklyn and there were 18,000 people there. So safe to say I was feeling a bit emotional. I was very excited for all of the shows and they were all amazing, like always. Every time I see him play a live show it just gets better and better.

IMG_3645

This month was a fun one. Friends from Germany came and visited the family and we all had a great time. We went to Bear Mountain and shopping and NYC and shopping. It was a good time. I also went to go prom dress shopping for my mom’s godchild at Macy’s in NYC. So I was at many shopping centers this month.


Beauty

IMG_3651

Lip colors in order listed below.

YSL – Baby Doll Kiss & Blush – Number 12 Mocha Garconne

I already made a separate post about this but it also deserves to be in my favorites. Not only is it my favorite color I have seen on my lips ever, it feels like butter on your lips as well. I want to stock up on these so I will never be without it.

Bite Beauty – High Pigment Pencil – Madeira

My friend Luisa introduced me to Bite Beauty and I picked up two different formulas from her recommendation and I am loving them. This one is very creamy, and this shade is a very nice nude.

Bite Beauty – Matte Crème Lip Crayon – Léché

This one is matte but still feels so creamy and doesn’t dry out my lips at all. Love this shade as well.

MAC – Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

My foundation shade has always been off so I finally went to get a new foundation. I didn’t know how much I needed a new foundation until I got this one. I am in love with the finish that it gives on my face and it feels so much better than my previous foundation. I would not wear this every single day because it is a medium to full coverage and I don’t need that everyday but for the days I want to wear a full face of makeup it is perfect. It feels like it isn’t even there. I was matched twice, the first I was matched to NW20 and the second time NW10. The NW10 matches me perfectly but if I am feeling pale then I will add a bit of NW20 to warm up my face.  (I have oily to normal skin)

Apparel

Steve Madden

I love these so much, I am going to wear them all summer. Any type of black boots are my favorite.

Music

American Candy – The Maine

My favorite band came out with a new cd! Nothing else has been in my cd player since. There are some albums that you wish you could tweet and mark up every journal with the lyrics on the cd and this is definitely one of those albums.

March Favorites

IMG_2681

March, I don’t even remember it looking back. Very busy month. I hardly posted in March because I was writing final papers all month, it’s my own fault I procrastinate too much. I went to an outlet mall this month and a book signing, so that was exciting. This favorites is going to be short but here it is!


Beauty

Beauty Blender – Micro Mini

These are perfect for blending under eye concealer.

Sigma – F80 Flat Kabuki

I love this brush SO much. I don’t even know how I my foundation looked good before this brush. I would recommend this to everyone.

Too Faced – Melted Lipstick in Melted Sugar

I never really stray away from MAC lipsticks but I am glad I did on this one, It wears really well.

Laura Mercier – Secret Brightening Powder

This is one of my favorite makeup products ever. This is perfect for putting on over concealer, it brightens up the under eye so much.

Apparel

Vans -Metallic Leather Slip-On

Let’s just take a moment to appreciate these, I am so in love with them. I saw them and absolutely had to have them. I bought them for a certain even in summer and I can’t wait to wear them!!

Brandy Melville Kimono

This was bought at a PacSun Outlet so unfortunately I can’t find it online.

Books

Shane Dawson – I Hate Myselfie

This was the book signing that I went to. The book was pre signed but I couldn’t stay to meet him. I love Shane Dawson and I love this book, if you have watched any of his videos you would enjoy this book.

I also read Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher this month. It was very good! Everyone currently in High School needs to read this book! It is about a girl who commits suicide and leaves a voice recording tape to 13 people that played a part in her suicide.

Music

James Bay’s CD came out this month! It is very good, if you love acoustic music then I would definitely suggest to listen to it.
