What I would buy at the Sephora sale…

If you look at my blog it’s easy to tell that I’m a beauty product hoarder.  I love beauty products and seeing whats new and finding new stuff to try.  Sephora is my candy store; I could spend hours there honestly and I love browsing the website! I may not need anything but there is always something(s) I want. I’m done with school in 2 weeks (!!!) so I’ve decided not to buy anything because its gonna have to find its way home and for me that is a shit show.  I accumulate a lot and I have a hard time finding a home for it!  So I’m passing on the Sephora spring sale BUT if I wasn’t this is what I’d be getting…

code is VIBSPRING for 15% off till the 24th

 

 

NARS bronzer / Marc Jacobs Highlight / Black Tulip perfume / NARS highlight / Marc Jacobs Bronzer / Bumble Bumble pret a powder / Milk makeup skin tint / stila eyeshadow / Glamglow moisturizer / Philosophy exfoliant / NARS lip in cruisin/ Benefit dew the hoola

Ok so I probably wouldn’t get all of this because its 15% off not 50% but Lord knows I’d try! I’m on such a bronzer kick so thats why theres so many. Also itching to try some new hair texture products. Just not sure what.  Drybar came out with a foam version of their detox dry shampoo! It’s sold out on Sephora but I really want to try it because I was not a fan of the Ouai one but I love the concept of it and want to find one I love.

What I love: Pinterest edition

Evidence of my love affair with pinterest.  I’m on it ALL the time.  It consists of this, baby pigs and garlic bread because 1) I love both endlessly and 2) why not?!   Here’s what I’m loving as of recently: sweaters, fur, glitter and GUCCI. I’ll take it all!

  1. I want it to be fuzzy slipper weather and I want these fuzzy slippers. Thanks Zara, for making fuzzy slipper goals. I’m obsessed.
  2. I found Maren Morris‘s album last night and I haven’t stopped listening she is so so so good.
  3. Dressy fuzzy slippers I NEED.
  4. Everyone and their mom is releasing new highlighter palettes! I’m so excited and overwhelmed at the same time! I want people to review them asap so I know which one to get. This NARs one. This smashbox one. This Laura Mercier one. These colourpop ones. And this Anastasia Beverly Hills one.  So so curious.
  5. Victoria Beckham wears snowboots!!
  6. I’m loving Buzzfeed’s style section and these makeup layering charts are super helpful.
  7. This website is really helpful in choosing a monthly beauty box subscription. I got the allure one this month and will be posting about that in a little bit. I have to make sure I get a good use of all the products so I can accurately report back!   I also signed up for Play! by Sephora.
  8. Yellow aviators are going to be a thing. mark. my. words!

Wantsss

screen-shot-2017-02-03-at-7-12-39-pm1. I love an oversized sweater/sweatshirt with my over the knee boots.  Thats been a thing for me on numerous occasions here, and here. I love the lax vibe and the color of this one. It’s from prettylittlethings.com which is my new online obsession.  I think its comparable to missguided and nasty gal.

2. I love this Rebecca Minkoff cross body bag for the top handle!  I love cross body bags but its not flattering if you have big boobs because the strap gets caught in the middle. The handle is a suitable solution!

3. Kehlani tour merch. Tour merch hit 2016 HARD. I love Kehlani and her new album is all I’ve listened too for the past week honestly. I love hoodies so this just makes sense.

4. Nike prestos. This isn’t their first appearance on the blog. I want these so bad.

5. Ouai dry shampoo foam. This is getting so much buzz right now! I love dry shampoo and as someone who gets greasy on day 2 , I would love to find a dry shampoo that is not a white dust. Personally, I think this is gonna be a game changer. It’s gotten great reviews everywhere except for the Sephora website which makes me so much more curious about it.

6. Mac retro liquid lip in flesh stone. I have been SO into nude lips at the moment and I honestly think it’s gonna be my new thing. I love color lipstick but just not on me.  I’m a smiler and I can have a lot of gums so it’s better if my lip is a nude color because then it’s hardly noticeable. I have looking for a color like this for sooo long, a nude taupe!

7. Colourpop Alexis Ren contour kit. This just came out today and it’s sold out. 😦 I have a feeling like it will be back. I love highlighter and bronzer and I have been very impressed with the quality of the colourpop stuff I own!  The only thing is, this palette is definitely for medium/tan skin. It’s $15 and looks fun to try.

Red Hot

I haven’t seen a ton of sneakers lately that I’ve loved.  I look for sneakers that 1. I love, 2. that aren’t totally basic or 3. are a right of passage for people who like sneakers, so Stan Smith and NMDs. That being said, I’m OBSESSED with these!  I love the Red October color way, these are called Max Orange a lil different but like cousin status. I want them SO bad, ugh.  If you live somewhere warm get them and wear them for me because theres snow on the ground at school and that will screw up the leather. 😒

 

Gift Guide for the bougie college girl!


When I say gift guide for the bougie college girl, I mean me and everything I want for Christmas. hahahah. It’s funny going to school on the east coast because now is the first time I’ve ever seen west coast vibes in my style. I’m obsessed with shoes and clothes and beauty products so for anyone sorta obsessed with one of those things, this gift guide will work sooo good!
1. Northface vest. This is the first time in my life that I’ve ever owned a vest and I’m sooo obsessed. vest, hoodie, leggings and sneakers is what I wear everyday and then some before it gets way cold. 
2. Over the knee boots.  I have flat ones but I love the heel for going out. They come in black and taupe and I really love taupe. 
3. Love your melon beanie.  If you buy a beanie they give back a beanie to a kid with cancer! 
4. Madewell flare flutters. Love these jeans so much. 
5. Adidas hoodie.  I wear mine a ton. 
6. Adidas NMDs. I’m obsessed with these sneakers rn.  They’re hard to find especially online but that makes them a GREAT gift.  I suggest looking for kids sizes.  Cheaper and easier to find. 
7. Topshop Velvet Skirt. I need more in-between clothes. i.e what to wear between leggings and hoodies and full force going out clothes. 
8. Velvet Rebecca Minkoff bag. I’m obsessed w/ velvet at the moment. 
9. Marble phone case and heart phone case.  I think phone cases are one of the best gifts because sometimes I feel silly buying more if I already have a good one. 
10. Underwear is always a good gift when you’re in college because the more underwear you own, the longer you can go in between doing laundry.  truth. 
11. Chokers!! No such thing as too many!
12. Love this backpack and it comes in every color under the sun.
13. Velvet bodysuit. again with the velvet. 
14. Champion Sweatshirt. These are hard to find at the moment but I love. 
15. Quay black sunnies.  I have the gold and I love so get more right?
16. Lululemons are always good. And the high waist is my favorite. 

1. Oribe Dry texture spray: I’ve wanted to try the Oribe texture spray for so long because I have honestly only heard amazing stuff about it!  It’s around $44 a can and knowing me I’ll love it and will only want to use it. ugh.  This makes it a great gift!
2. Kylie Lip Kit: I’ll do another post about my Kylie lip kit and heres the thing; it’s not that great (it’s comparable/subpar to many other lipsticks) but theres something about owning it. Just one. So that makes it a good gift. I won’t buy anymore but if someone bought me one for Christmas I would be excited. 
3. Avene Peux Intolerantes: I got this face cream as a sample and its amazing!  It’s not the cheapest ($35) but I love it and it’s great for winter skin and eczema. The texture is great because it’s super creamy but light at the same time. Its awesome! I will be getting this for Christmas. 
4. Glam Glow: Great mask, great gift! 
5. Foreo: I have a clarisonic and a Foreo and I love this much more because it’s gentler and still exfoliates. (the clarisonic hurts my skin) 
6. Colourpop matte lippies: This brand is the same formulation as Kylie lip kit. (same factory, same shipping location, its the same!!)  It’s great and it’s cheap. I love the eyeshadows as well. (They’re $5 each and make great stocking stuffers)  I have so much good stuff to say about Colourpop! 
7. Moroccan Oil: Best hair mask. 
8. Bumble and Bumble primer: This is the best heat protectant!  I got a free full size one on black Friday so check their website for something similar. 
9. Wet Brush: The best and only brush you should own. Painless for tangles and I get hella. 
10. Jessie James Decker hair perfume: I WANT THIS SO BAD! I love her and her hair so much and this is supposed to be the best scent. 
11. Sunday Riley Martian toner: I got this as a sample at Sephora and my skin has been soo good since using it. It has a funky smell honestly but it’s worth it.  Also $54. I like all the expensive stuff :/
12. Becca highlighter: I love highlighter and this is THEE BEST.  Champagne pop is my favorite. 
13. Neutrogena Color sticks: This is the Neutrogena version of a chubby stick. They’re amazing and like $6!  Great stocking stuffer. 
14. Mac Lipstick: Great lipstick that isn’t crazy expensive. 
15. Nars Blush palette: Nars is holy grail blush and palettes are so exciting. 
16. Urban Decay setting spray. Essential but the bomb! 
17. Flowerbomb. Best perfume, EVER. love the smell and this is the prettiest bottle for the holidays. 
18. Kat von D tattoo liner: Lasts a long time. Best liquid eyeliner. 
19. Beauty Blender. When do you ever not need a new beauty blender?
20. Too Faced Neutral Eye Palette. This is the prettiest eyeshadow palette.

Thoughts on the Nordstrom Sale

Nordstrom sweater. Sub Urban Riot tee. Vintage Levis. Birkenstocks. (I’m obsessed with these)
So you probably know, its the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!  It’s sort of a big deal. I have a Nordstrom credit card so I got to see the stuff earlier then those without one.  Online, it’s impressive.  I didn’t go to the store before the 21st when it was not open to the public but I went yesterday (when it was) and idk friends, not that impressed.  Sale section was picked over, messy and lacking what I saw online.  Maybe it’s better to go when it’s just open for cardholders?  I feel like the sale is a chance to get rid of stuff so that they have room in the fall for what is newer, shinier and greater.  So make that stuff you want to get rid of 20% off and suddenly its new, shiny and great again! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Nordstrom but the sale pulls me in and gets me to spend money on the stuff thats probably NOT on sale. :////  I’m a sucker. 
Some of the stuff ON SALE is great; this is a great winter coat, these are the best bras, Stan Smith are essentials, and this beautiful dress that I have no where to wear. 
This sweater was part of the sale, but honestly, I probably wouldn’t buy it if it wasn’t.  Annnnddddd I don’t love the color so I will be exchanging it for grey. (PLS DONT SELL OUT) The squad shirt was not on sale, and neither were the not pictured Quay sunglasses I bought.  I’ll post those later because I’m sooooo obsessed.
