I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and if you celebrate Easter and great Easter! Today I’m talking about spring beauty products worth the money. Many of you know I recently did a purge of a ton of makeup. So, I’ve recently bought some new products and guys they are AMAZING!

    FYI I’m not an “expert” at this but I will try to provide as much information and hopefully answer any questions you may have! I have so makeup and some skincare so let’s jump right into it!

    FOUNDATION

    Dior Forever Skin Perfect Foundation-I’m a sucker for a good foundation. I had heard so many great things about this foundation and I thought hey why not try it out. Let’s start out that this product is pricey but it looks absolutely flawless.  I would say it’s a medium to full coverage foundation and it doesn’t feel heavy or look cakey.  It does have a SPF of 35 so it’s perfect for the upcoming season.

    SETTING POWDER

    Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder-I had been using the Laura Mercier Translucent powder for such a long time. I still 100% stand by that product because it’s amazing trust me.  I even have it in a travel size! I wanted to try something new and this powder does NOT disappoint. It’s such a great product for so many reasons but mainly that it lasts and doesn’t make me look oily.  AUTOMATIC WIN!

    FACE CLEANSER

    Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel-I HATE trying out new skincare because A. I don’t know if it will work and B. my face usually doesn’t respond to the change well. I got this product as a mini and feel in love! It takes off all my makeup and makes my skin feel great after! Also I didn’t have any breakouts after using it! Will be buying this sometime this week during the Sephora Surprise sale!

    MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY

    GLAMGLOW GLOWSETTER Makeup Setting Spray-If you don’t own a makeup setting spray then friends it’s time! This one is so good! When I first saw it online I thought sure why not give it a try and I was over the moon impressed! One day I will muster up the courage and buy the Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist but for now I’m so happy I found this one! It gives such a great sheen over your makeup and if you wear highlight (which you should) it will add an extra pop!

    HIGHLIGHTER

    Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit-If there is anything you NEED it’s this! Highlighters have been everywhere for about a year now and this year is not different. I bought this kit last year but have been using it more and more.  Especially with the hotter months coming this is perfect! You can add an extra highlight that tan you have! I love the kit because you have different colors to play around with! They aren’t to glittery and go one smooth.

    Hope you guys enjoyed this and were able to find some new goodies to play with! Also if you are a Sephora Beauty Insider I just found out they are having a surprise sale this week for some of their members so be on the lookout!

    Have a wonderful Monday!

    XOXO,

    Day in my Life

    embroidered top, white jeans, brown shoes, brown purse

    Good Morning & happy Friday!  It’s been a crazy week and I’m so ready the weekend and to celebrate Easter with family and friends! Today’s post is going to be about what a day in my life is like on a weekend!  Since I try to blog full time and work full time I wanted to share how I fit it all into my schedule.

    spring look, spring fashion, white jeans, styling white jeans, embroidery top, cognac shoes, henri bendel purse spring 2017, what to wear, outfit inspiration, brunch outfit,Saturday’s usually start with waking up early and going to brunch with some blogger babes! Many of you know that I’m currently interning with a Houston blogger so Saturday mornings are for brunching and learning! The best part about getting together with a ton of bloggers is pictures! It’s such a great opportunity to take pictures and use them later for our blogs.

    After brunch, I head home to spend some time with my little family.  Depending on what’s going on that day I will either start working on my blog or go take pictures.  Working on my blog consists of catching up on emails, replying back to comments on my blog, catching up on Instagram pods, and finishing up threads on Facebook.

    highland village, houston, ootd, fashion, outfit, spring outfit, spring look blue top, white jeans, cognac shoes, cognac purseThis is also the time where I start to plan my blog posts.  I’m trying to get better and plan out my posts at least a month at a time.  Not going to lie though it’s very tough especially with working a full-time job, an internship, and of course trying to live life.  So, if I am behind on planning posts this is the time I try to catch up or at least get an idea of what posts I will be writing for the week.

    I also try and start writing some of my posts for the week so I’m not stuck doing them during the week but life is tough so sometimes this goes undone.

    Once 3:30 hits I start to get ready to shoot some looks for the week.  Also if anyone has a magic number for how many looks to take that would be AWESOME!  Sometimes in the middle of the week I get stuck and have NO idea what to post on Instagram.   Does anyone else go through this?

    Pictures usually take anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour (all depends on how many looks I’m shooting).  I will usually edit the pictures as soon as I get home and have them ready to go for my blog or Instagram.  At about 7:00 I’m done with all my blogging errands and I will just take the time to relax!

I’m always looking for things to make my day a bit easier!

    Have a Happy Easter friends!
