VANS – Classic Slip-On

Vans

Classic Slip-On

Purchase: here!

These are my all time favorite shoes. I wear them year round, but they are perfect for summer. They are so lightweight and comfortable and they go with absolutely everything. The white pair are my favorite, I love them. These Vans come in so many different colors. I also love other styles of Vans, but for me, nothing tops these.

Boohoo Heels

boohoo.com

Amber Ankle Band Block Heels

Get them here!

These heels are from one of my favorite stores boohoo.com! They are such a classic and timeless heel, I got them both in black and white (the website says white but is more like a cream). They have a chunky heel so they are easy to walk in, and they do not have such thin straps that you are seeing now a days, making them more comfortable. These are shoes that will never go out of style and will fit with any outfit. A good thing about boohoo.com too is that they always have sales, I get emails from them all the time about different items on sale almost each week.

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.

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.

February Favorites

IMG_1826

WOW! I can’t believe that it is already the end of February. That went by so fast. I have been extremely busy with school this month because I had my midterm week and all my classes announced a final paper. So, I have not purchased that much this month. I went to the drug store once, I got my hair done, got those boots online on a good boots sale and the sweater is from H&M. I have really been into writing this month so a personal essay may be coming soon.


Beauty

| 1 | L’Oréal Infallible Series

Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray

Pro-Matte Foundation (Mine is in Classic Ivory)

Pro-Matte Powder (Mine is in Porcelain)

I usually don’t buy drug store products because my skins is super sensitive and oily, so my face and drug store products always become an issue.. but this line is amazing. It is definitely high quality, the setting spray, the foundation and the powder is as good as my high end products. Would definitely re-purchase.

Skin Care

| 2 | Aveda

Botanical Kinetics Energizing Eye Cream

Hand Relief Moisturizing Cream

This is a high end product but it is so worth it. I got them at my local hair salon that I go to. The eye cream I just got a few days ago so I will let you know how it is, but I can already tell so far so good. The hand cream on the other hand I have used every single day this month. It is so worth it if you have dry hands from the winter. It is perfection, I can not say enough good things about this hand cream.

Apparel

| 3 | Boohoo – Pointed Chelsea Boots

Chelsea boots are my favorite style of boots and I have been wanted one with a pointed toe. I received an email that there was a sale on shoes on boohoo. I got them. Love them. So Much. Wear them all the time.

| 4 | H&M+ V-Neck Sweater

I saw this sweater on tumblr last month and had to find it. It is H&M+ so it was perfect for me. It is such a classic sweater and so big and comfy.

Music

I did not buy the actual cd yet, but I got it on iTunes.. Reflection by Fifth Harmony!! This album is so fun, that is the only way that I can describe it. Every single song I want to dance around my room and pretend that it’s now Sixth Harmony because I obviously think I have joined the group.

Another album that came out recently was Leave Your Love – EP by Tyler Carter. I love it so much. Love him so much.

Also, I went to a Chris Brown and Trey Songz concert this past weekend so I have been listening to them non-stop.

Songs

I have been listening to this cover ever since it has come out. Everything Ed touches turns into gold.

My New Docs!


IMG_1417

I think I have been waiting my entire life to find the most perfect boots ever and I think I finally found them. No matter what season I always wear boots. For the longest time I wore Steve Madden classic combat boots but then I got sick of them. So, then I started to wear slip on Chelsea Boots because they were a bit more versatile and classy. Now I wanted to find a pair of edgy boots. I always wanted classic Docs but I do not like the ones that most people have so when I saw these I fell in love. I had my eye on them for a long time and finally got them when I saw they were selling out.

They are here but they are mostly sold out.

IMG_1418

I wanted to take really good care of these shoes because they are such a big investment so I purchased a care kit. It came with two pairs of laces, one of them I already put on the shoes. It also came with a cleaning cloth and two different cans of waxes to condition and clean the leather.
