So first off are the Revlon matte lip colors these are my all time favorite drug store lippy colors, they are long lasting and smell amazing. I buy mine from Walmart because well I go to school in the middle of no where and the closest Ulta is 45 minutes away, also I’m a broke college girl balling on a budget so these $8 lippy colors are A1! Next up is the best eye shadow known to man, Bare Minerals, Nude Beach this eye shadow is so pigmented but not heavy and not to glittery I wear it pretty much everyday because personally I think it’s easy to put on especially if you don’t want to wear eyeliner but still feel glam. Side note I did however drop this eyeshadow this morning all over the floor and cried a little inside. This butter bronzer I got from CVS and  is one of Jaclyn Hill’s favorites and well of course if she tells me to go buy some kind of make up on her YouTube channel I’m sold and have to go get it because she is like the prettiest woman alive. But this bronzer smells AMAZING I have gotten all my friends hooked it’s the best. Next is the snake skin Morphe brush case another recommended product by Jaclyn Hill it keeps your make up brushes clean and won’t mess them up, because you know when you’re traveling and you toss your brushes into a ziplock and then they get all misshaped and then they just don’t work the same. This little box is the answer and it lays flat how cool is that! Another Morphe product is the M439 best foundation brush it blends out your make up so beautifully and gives you a natural cake free finish. LIVE. LOVE. DIE. for this brush (haha). Finally, the Garnier Micellar Water  removes eye make the absolute best and doesn’t burn at all! It helps get rid of any stubborn make up after washing your face and leaves your skin feeling fresh. I hope y’all enjoy some of my favorite things and have a great night!

I’m Back!

Hey y’all, sorry I haven’t been as avid about my blog posts this past week but it has been CRAZY here in the creek. Tuesday I got into a car wreck thankfully it was only a fender bender but now I am driving around my mom’s car. But the good part about this week was that my mom came down to school and spent the night with me in the Rosé Vista (what we call our apartment). We went to a great little deli and had lunch and shopped around and got some great stuff for Easter. I also bought the shoes I am wearing for $11 at Belk which made my day because they are Sam Edelman. Loving this warm weather it has me in the spring feels and I am TOTALLY look forward to next week because I have spring break YAY! Anyways I will definitely be more consistent with the posts this coming week and hope everyone has a great Thursday night!

Hey Y’all! So this weekend my mom and I went to Tjmaxx and found some great stuff   for spring along with great gift ideas for Valentine’s Day along with Easter. I am super excited to try this shampoo by Biosilk, honestly the bottles looked really cool so now I am hoping I like the shampoo as well (haha). This Michale Kors fanny pack was only $24.00 and at first when I picked it up I was totally joking about getting it and then I wore it around the store and it is the most practical accessory I have ever worn! Kind of tempted to wear it to class, don’t hate. I had a great time at home this weekend with my friends and family I was so sad to come back to school and study. I hope I have inspired you to go to your local Tjmaxx to hunt for great deals, because let’s get real, thats the best part of going! My roommate and I are those people who google the item in the store and see what the original retail price was because we are extra and need to tell everyone the DEAL we got!

Loving this hot pink sweater for Valentine’s Day this week and plus it is a great transition color for spring! Sorry for not posting but I have had a busy weekend and a ton of homework. I got this sweater from J.Crew in the fall and am completely in love with the ruffles! My jeans came from Marshall’s because you know your girl is always looking for a deal. This Tory Burch purse I got for Christmas and it is honestly the perfect size purse for everything! Throwing on my favorite pair of loafer slides and I am unstoppable! I hope everyone had a terrific Tuesday!

Be Still & Listen

Today during my quiet time I felt so discouraged, all my friends are either getting married, having babies, or getting job promotions. I am still in college so of course I have friends that are in the same position as me but today as I was scrolling through social media I felt like I hadn’t done anything with my life except be a student and I was sitting there wishing I was out of school, wishing I was getting married, wishing I was getting promoted. I was WISHING my life away. I felt like I was walking in sadness and disappointment instead of trusting and praising God. I felt lead to read Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you be strong and courageous for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” This assured me that God has a plan for my life and even though I don’t understand it now and it seems scary he has something great in store for me. I need to STOP wishing my life away and put it all in his hands, trust and follow him and his plan will become apart of my life. I can’t figure everything out on my own and if I try to it will be like trying to heard cats. Ultimately, God knows my heart and he will do his very best to give me the desires of it. God can do the same for you if you just trust in him.

What is in my gym bag?

Hoodie and Leggings: Lululemon

Today I am off to the gym getting ready for spring break, a few must haves of mine are always to bring a sweat shirt because I don’t know why but I personally am always cold after a hard work out. I also bring along my favorite pair of Adidas running shoes they are great for lifting weights because they are heavier at the bottom so your ankles don’t turn. My light pink Corkcicle water bottle keeps the water cold and it is easy to keep up with since it is a bright color, I can not tell you how many times I have lost my water bottle at the gym, thankfully I have managed to keep up with this one. Next I throw some body spray and some wet wipes into my bag because I don’t like showering at the gym I think that is kinda gross. This particular body spray is my new favorite scent from Bath & Body Works, its called Champagne Toast. To make sure I am prepared and full of energy before the gym I try and get a good nights rest. In the morning I take the Oily women’s multi vitamin, these are the best vitamins I have ever taken they don’t leave a bad after taste and they are great for your hair and nails. The CeraVe Renewing Cream is just a good face/body lotion to keep in your gym bag to help take off your makeup or to put on your dry hands in the winter. Finally, I aways drink this Protein Primer before hitting the gym, I buy these from Costco and they taste really good. I hope y’all are inspired to hit the gym now, as I write this post I am currently eating a bag of gold fish so maybe this afternoon will be gym time. Have a great day!
