Beauty Haul

Beauty Haul

Morning, Lovelies! I've done quite a bit of shopping lately and I thought I would give y'all a haul post today on the beauty items that have found their way into my collection lately! I'll report back most likely in my August Favorites on which ones we're outstanding, and I'm excited to try the majority of these while on vacation this week in Cancun, Mexico (don't worry, there will be one vlog at least, maybe two!) Tell me below any of these that you've tried, and your thoughts! Or If you have any recommendations, I would love to hear them!

February Favorites

February Favorites

This month was full of rediscoveries and a few new favorites. February was all about pretty neutrals and muted colors to transition from winter to spring! First up, these gorgeous shades from Essie! I've been loving rotating and mixing these three for an understated but fresh mani. Imported Bubbly (left) has a beautiful pearl-effect on the nail, and looks amazing paired with Mochachino (right) which is a pretty light brown with tiny light-reflecting particles in it. Sugar Daddy (center) is the ultimate natural color. It adds just a slight polished pink to the nail, and pulls together whatever look you're wearing without drawing too much attention.

Bomber

Bomber

This week is going to be a busy one! For those of you who don't know, I'm an intern at Suite 1521, and with added days there, so much to do for classes, and keeping  my regular blogging schedule, it's going to be hectic! Sometimes I wish I was a normal college student.... but not really.

Today I had a lot of errands to run, so I needed something comfortable and easy to move in. My trusted pixie pants and tweed sneakers were no-brainers, and I threw on this cream and grey bomber jacket from LOFT to keep me warm and add a model-off-duty style to the outfit. But of course, it would never be my style without a little extra sparkle, so in came my favorite J.Crew necklace.

Tartelette 2 In Bloom Palette Review

Tartelette 2 In Bloom Palette Review

Is there anything better than a new eyeshadow palette? (probably, but it's definitely up there!) One thing I got for my birthday was this Tartelette 2 In Bloom Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette, and I'm in love! It comes with 12 gorgeous shades that will work for any skin tone. 

Just the overall palette itself is gorgeous. It's made of a sturdy-weight gold metal and has a huge mirror which is amazing for travel! The shadows themselves are rich, pigmented, and buttery! I haven't had too much fallout while applying, and all of the colors are beautiful!

Currently Craving: February

This month is February, and you know what that means, Valentine's Day! (and my birthday, woohoo!) Here's a list of some thing's I've had my eye on (most of which aren't "traditional" valentine's gifts, but who wants another heart shaped necklace and a box of mystery chocolate?)

J.Crew Ryder Pants

I've been eyeing this gorgeous, classic pants for awhile, and after trying them on in-store, I can attest that they are sleek, comfortable, and so cute! Definitely craving them in both black and navy, but they carry olive green and brown as well! 

Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte is known for it's fantastic pressed-powder products made with amazonian clay (Their clay blushes are my all-time favorites!) and this new edition to their line is full of gorgeous eyeshadow shades that are buttery, pigmented, and such beautiful shades. I swatched them in a Sephora a few weeks ago and I've been dreaming of it ever since!

J.Crew Factory Bucket Bag

Bucket bags are so functional and trendy, and this brown leather one from J.Crew Factory is simple and chic. It will work with anything from leggings and an oversized sweater, to a cute dress and heels. 

Kate Spade Travel Mugs

For your favorite coffee lover, (whether this be yourself or someone else) the Kate Spade travel mugs are too cute to pass up and will brighten up anyone's morning! They come in a ton of adorable colors and patterns, but I'm especially in love with that gold stripe!

Kiel James Patrick Pearl Bracelet

This classic glass pearl bracelet is stunningly simple, and looks beautiful worn alone or in a stack of your other favorites. The anchors come in both silver and gold, and the ribbon ties come in many different colors. They're all handmade in Rhode Island, and KJP also has apparel, tons more jewelry, hats, and shoes!

What have you had your eye on this month? Let me know in the comments below!

November Wishlist

Another month, another list of things to crave! Keeping in mind that the holiday season is right around the corner, here's a few things you might add to your list!!

Nasty Gal Wrap Flat

How cute are these tied flats?? Maybe not practical for winter, but something to look forward to breaking out in the spring! The laces are so trendy and you might even be able to pull them off for the fall with tights!

Kate Spade Fairmont Square Monday Crossbody

As soon as I saw this plaid beauty, I fell in love! I loved the solid-color version of this bag, but the pop of plaid makes it even more chic!

J.Crew Factory City Coat

If there's one thing I've been on the hunt for recently, it's definitely winter coats! Things are starting to cool down in NYC and the freeze is on it's way! I love this wool coat from J.Crew Factory (especially the bright red version!!) Such a fun way to keep warm and stay chic!

A Full J.Crew Factory Cart

I tried so hard to pick only one or two of these, but it's absolutely impossible! J.Crew Factory just has too many perfect pieces!! Here are only a few of my favorites!

Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette

If there was such thing as the perfect eyeshadow palette, this one comes pretty close. I'm a big fan of matte shadows (shimmer and I do not get along) and this one has twelve gorgeous shades that create so many beautiful looks! I swatched this last time I was in Sephora, and the shadows are buttery, highly-pigmented, and everything you would expect from an amazing brand like Tarte!

 

Anything you've had your eye on for the upcoming month / holiday season??
