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!

Lately I have been loving the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils! I first tried these when Sephora chose the Cruella and Rikugien duo for it’s free birthday gift and I have been pretty hooked ever since. These velvet matte lipstick pencils apply so easy, they’re small which means they are great for travel, and are surprisingly very long lasting. Today I wore Cruella, I applied it at around 12pm, went to eat at 4pm, took a a nap at about 5pm and when I woke up an hour later the lip pencil was still in place! So that should give you an idea of how long you can wear this lippie without having to completely reapply.

I recently added a new shade to my little collection. I was listening to Myleik Teele’s podcast, My Taught You and she had one of my favorite people in the world (my BFF in my head) Kahalana Barfield- Brown on the podcast. If you don’t know who Kahlana is we can’t be friends, like seriously! Kahlana is the Beauty Editor-at-Large at InStyle Magazine, she’s also one of the most stylish people I have ever seen, and she gives me so much inspiration when I’m trying to think outside the fashion box. But Kahlana is also pretty known for her signature red lip.
