August Favorites

Hello everyone! Summer is over, well atleast for me, ha. It is September so bring out all of the pumpkin scented candles and PSL at Starbucks. Fall is rapidly approaching and I am living for it! September brings an allure of newness. New opportunities, experiences, and memories. I am excited to start and finish my last year of Nursing School and graduate! YAY! I just moved to a new house and the redecorating has commenced! Pictures to come once it is all done. What are you looking forward to this month?

Kyshadow

Guys! I have literally set 2 alarms on 2 separate occasions and the first time I failed because these were sold out in 1 freaking minute lol. Seriously, so the following time I succeed! Yay! These kyshadows are perfect for everyday looks. At least for me, I love bronze and neutral shades that I can interchange everyday. The shadows are so pigmented and blend so easily. So set your alarms for the next restock this baby is a must have! A tutorial using these kyshadows is coming soon! Here is the tutorial! Enjoy!

NYX Liquid Suede Creme

I am a huge fan of the NYX Liquid Suede. They are super creamy and they stay ON without entirely drying out your lips. I do like to apply a lip balm and blot it out gently before apply any liquid lipstick. I own the colors Sandstorm and Brooklyn Thorn. Sandstorm is more of a brown nude and Brookyln Thorn is brown purple. I never thought I would go for a color like this, but goodness, it has been my go-to lately. I love the hint of purple- so edgy yet chic. 

NYX Strobe of Genius 

I have been on the hunt for a bomb-a highlighter. This highlighter palate is perfect. It has all of the highlight shades that you could want for every skin tone and it is under $20! Yes, get it now! My I love playing around with the colors and mixing them for different looks and effects. My favorites are the gold & lilac shade and the bottom 3. Who am I kidding. I love them all. Seriously, highlight game on point. 

NYX HD Finishing Powder 

Another NYX product! I recently went to the preview event for the NYX grand opening at the Mall of Millenia and fell in love with some of their products. I've always wanted to try a banana powder to set my under eye area. I have been using this one every since and I love it. It is so smooth, doesn't crease, settle, and lasts! 

GHD Platinum Styler 

 My flat iron broke RIP. Huge fan of GHD so I decided to try out their newest iron. This iron can be used to straighten your hair and well as curl it.

ColourPop Blush

Blush is an essential. I am a lover of all shades berry, pink, and peach. My holy grail bush, Orgasm by Nars, was hitting pan so I decided to try out ColourPop's blush. I went with Between the Sheets. 1.) For the name, of course. 2.) for the stunning color! I love to apply this with a small stippling brush for a sheer to buildable color.

Booties

Okay, so my love for booties will never cease. I have a plethora and I'm proud. Ankle boots are my go-to for everything. They are perfect for spicing up a casual look or wearing it with your ruffled boho dress. I am currently on the hunt for some nude/beige colored booties or maybe a snake/cheetah pair for the fall.

Letterfolk Board

The loveliest husband and wife couple have found a way to bring "yesterday's letter board in today's home" and I am digging it. I have seen these board all over Instagram & Pinterest, so naturally I needed to get my little hands on one. I absolutely love the versatility of these boards and I know that I will use these for the long run. Currently, I have it set up on my side table for some daily inspo.
