It’s been a while since I have posted here, but I’m back! I’ve been on a bit of a spending fast (which went pretty terribly) so I was trying my hardest not to purchase much in the month of September. I recently went to one of my favorite stores (Sephora), to pick up some things and I also recently got some orders in from Amazon. Perfect timing for a post!

I know you see the Fenty Beauty products front and center so lets start there! Because I hate going into stores when they are super packed, I waited until the week after the Fenty Beauty launch to stop in Sephora and pick up somethings that I saw in the 100+ tutorials I watched beforehand. Just my luck however, the darker shades were sold out at two locations but I was still able to get IQ matched so when the foundation is restocked, I will be able to purchase. I did get a sample and let me tell you… best foundation I have EVER used… EVER! I will talk more about it when I am able to purchase it and wear it more often, but all I can say is it really does look like skin.

Ok, so let’s talk about this mask!

I purchased this sample sized mask sometime in June or July when I was in NJ/NY along with a few other sample sized masks The Body Shop was offering. I have soooo many masks so a lot of them tend to sit until I want want to try something new or my skin is having a fit and I need something really specific.




For the past year I have been really focused on improving my skin, getting a regimen down and also finding products that will be staples in my collection. I’m not really the type of person that likes to use A LOT of different products, mainly because I breakout in hives really easy so I don’t want to test a lot of things at once and not know exactly what’s causing me to breakout. I try to test a product for at least 6 months before I say if I love it or hate it. A lot of the products above I’ve been using for moooonths and they haven’t let me down so I wanted to share with you all some of my current beauty favorites and products I will always reach for!

This is going to be a long one friends, so grab a snack… or two!

My only thought after this Chipotle run was that Maryland could really benefit from drive-thrus and bodegas. Super random I know… anyways, people are always asking me about this shirt I’m wearing here. I’m a late 80s baby and the first wave of kids that got to experience the greatness that was AOL, so when I saw it I knew I had to have it. If you don’t know what a/s/l means then you’re not old enough to be friends.

The other day I took a little trip to New York to walk around, get a greater feel of the city and clear my mind. I took a few pictures on my mini trip and wanted to share! It was so dreary in New York, which made me a bit sad but I was still happy to be there just walking around, studying what people were wearing, observing and shopping.

This weekend I went to the mall for no apparent reason (I actually never need a reason, tbh) and picked up a few new things I’ve been wanting to try. I’ve been on the search for more sheet masks as well as eye masks (because girl, tired) so hopefully some of these masks help.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these and if you like them!
