Happy Friday Loves! So sorry I’ve been MIA this week but on Wednesday I started school so it’s been a whirlwind of getting back into “school mode.”

I have a surprise party to attend tomorrow and then hopefully come up with something for Sunday. Have a great weekend 🙂

Friday Five

Happy Friday! This was my final full week of summer vacation and although I’m sad I won’t get another break until Thanksgiving, I’m so excited (and a bit nervous) to start my senior year :/

On Wednesday I saw my cousins and we went on a shopping trip and it was so much fun to hang out with them before they start school next week too.

I had a great week and I hope you did too! Have an amazing weekend 🙂

imageTesting out Instagram Stories. So far I love it!

Bell Sleeve Top

IMG_2124

Happy Thursday Loves! This top may look similar because I featured it in white on Tuesday. Since this top is only $6, getting it in different colors just seemed right! I got black and white & my Mom got the coral color 🙂 They also have a mint color! This shirt is so cute and such good quality too.

I paired the black top with these white jeans from Old Navy. These wedges are currently on major sale for only $15 and you may remember seeing them in this post. I added in a pop of color with my pink bag!

My #NSale Beauty Buy

IMG_2145

In case you don’t know, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has been going on now for a few weeks and will be ending this Sunday night. So if you’re holding off on a product that is part of the sale I would definitely hurry because there aren’t that many items left in stock and last minute shoppers will leave the stores and website clean!

I really limited myself to the sale and only bought one thing! (Crazy! I know) But it was this Lorac ‘Refined Romance’ Eye/Cheek Palette. I’ve never owned a beauty product by Lorac and I’ve wanted to try the brand for so long, so getting this palette on sale was such a good way for me to try out this brand.

First off, I’m obsessed with how beautiful the packaging is! (Major Heart Eyes)… The palette includes six eyeshadows, two highlighters and one blush. They are so pigmented and these colors are good all year round which is so great! And the price for this is so good too! It’s only $18 right now during the sale but the price will probably go back up to $30 on Monday 8/8/16 so act quickly.

I can’t recommend this palette enough 🙂

Today I’m going to go visit my Tia (Aunt) and cousins at their new house with my sister later on today and I’m so happy for them!  

Have a great day lovelies

Back To School Style

IMG_2139

Happy Tuesday! I start my final year of school next Wednesday and this is what I’ll be wearing 🙂 I registered yesterday and it’s so crazy how fast time flies!

I just bought this skirt at Kohls and its so cute! I paired it with this shirt I found on clearance for $5 at Walmart. The bell sleeves add such a cute & sweet element to this look. I paired the look with these new BP lace up flats I got at Nordstrom and this bag from Tjmaxx.

My Favorite Self Tanner

image

I’ve never used a self tanner before trying this product but I can’t believe what I’ve been missing out on!! I actually found this Suave ‘Visible Glow’ Self Tanner at the 99 cents store two weeks ago and I’m obsessed with this product. I have a really light skin tone and no matter how long I lay out in the sun; I never get a tan or any type of glow which sucks! 😦 I used this tanner a couple of days after my purchase and after reading hundreds of reviews, it worked so good!

I showered before my first application which is essential to any self tanning. I then dried off my body and proceeded to apply the tanner like a lotion (while really blending it into my skin to avoid any streaks!).  I then let the tanner dry for a few minutes and then I got dressed.

The following day I noticed a slight glow but it wasn’t until the second day that I noticed a real difference. I did accidentaly not blend it properly on my right arm and it left a bad tan line. However it was good because I got to see just how good of a self tanner color this is.

Overall I really recommed this self tanner! It gives a nice gradual tan which is great for me since I can’t tan from laying out in the sun. I use it every other day and I’ve seen a great difference 🙂

Sorry for there not being a post on Friday and no Weekend Edit, however I went camping on Friday and I just got back yesterday afternoon. I hope you all had a great weekend! 🙂

XOXO, ELIZABETH ♥

My Everyday Makeup Routine

IMG_1995

Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing my everyday makeup routine. I posted my then routine last year but a lot has changed since then, so I thought it would be time for a new one. I’ll also be sharing how I use these products down below

Enjoy!

IMG_2018I start off with my Covergirl Tru Blend foundation in the shade M1 Natural Beige then I use a beauty blender to apply it to my face.

IMG_2022For Concealer I use a mix between Physicians Formula and L.A. Girl. However I really love the PF one more! I use my beauty blender that I sprayed with rose water to blend it in.

IMG_2031I use the Covergirl Pressed Powder in the shade 110 Creamy Natural and I use an ELF makeup brush to set it in.

IMG_2024THE BEST NUDE SHADE EVER!!!!

I have shopped around for the perfect nude lip for years now and nothing beats this nude color. It is the NYX Plush Gel Lipstick in the shade ‘Nude Beach‘.

I also apply mascara but I completely forgot to photograph it 😦

I use Maybelline’s Big Eyes Mascara in the shade ‘Blackest Black

I hope you enjoyed this post and you have a wonderful day!
