Stay Spooky: Halloween Fashion

Hello lovies :)
Halloween is just a few days away and so I wanted to discuss the clothes, because they've been better this year than they have in a while!
I know, Halloween's in 4 days, and after that we'll be dressed in oversized christmas sweaters. But the great thing about most of these is that they don't even reference anything Halloween-y, so you could wear them whenever you wanted! (#7 excluded, obvs)

My personal favorite are 3 and 6, I definitely plan on buying them. The denim jacket is so cute because the front is distressed and it all just really ties in together nicely. And I love how the crop top is a subtle face, instead of say 1 or 5.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8


So are you guys excited about Halloween? What are you planning on doing? Let me know in the comments :)

Wishes: Band Merch & Graphics

Hello lovies!!
I know, it's been forever. I'm back in school and I forgot how physically and emotionally draining it is :( But I'm back now, hopefully I can keep blogging on a regular basis!

Well, over the past few months, my love for graphic tees and band merch has grown tremendously, and I like to believe I'm punk rock now which we all know is not true.

1) Feather Hearts We All Fall Down Cropped Tee - I like longer crop tops because I'm petite, so they just look like regular, flowy t-shirts on me - $34

2) Truly Madly Deeply Catsssss Cropped Tee - $29

3) All Time Low Reckless Mank Tank Top - Okay, so I actually already own this but I really love it, its a muscle tee and its so big and comfortable, and All Time Low is one of my favorite bands - $18 (sold out)

4) 5 Seconds of Summer Derping Since 2011 T-shirt - I own this one too, but again, 5sos is one of my favorite bands haha - $24

5) Truly Madly Deeply Sunny Daisy Box Cropped Tee - I went to Urban Outfitters in Orlando, planning to buy this.. and if you've been in more than one UO, you know they're all different.. yeah, well they didn't carry it, and I can't leave UO without buying something so I went to the sale section and bought a t-shirt instead - $29

6) Truly Madly Deeply Garden Muscle Tee - I really like this one because it looks like a band shirt - $29

7) Topshop Map Print Shirt - The only top in here that isn't a t-shirt, and I absolutely love it. I can think of so many different outfits for it, it's just so cute! - $70

8) Insight Splice Graphic Colorblock Tee - $39

9) Signorelli Meow Muscle Tee - $34

10) Corner Shop Lincoln Cat Muscle Tee - If you couldn't already tell, I really like cats haha - $29


So yeah, it's been a while.. I lost inspiration, then I got inspired but didn't have enough time, and now I'm just tired of using that as an excuse, you know? If you love something, you find time for it.

So hey guys, how have you been?? :)

Artist of the Month: Matt Corby

I was completely convinced that I wouldn't have a new artist this month, because all I've been listening to is Lewis Watson and 5 Seconds of Summer, who are past AOTMs.

But thank God for Twitter!

Thanks to Georgia Wood's fantastic tastes in music, I have found Matt Corby. Last minute, last day of the month - but I'm positive he's going to be an obsession of mine (if he's not already haha)! He's 22, he's Australian, he has the voice of an angel.. And I'm fangirling just a little bit. Or a lot.

I've had this song on repeat all day - I'm even listening to it as I type this! It's just such a chill song, and it puts you in the best of moods. There's something that reminds me of Phil Collins, but I can't put my finger on it, it might just be the vibe.
His voice is beautiful, and he's ridiculously talented.. and I told myself I wasn't going to talk about his hair. But that hair!
I know it's been forever, don't hate me!
I've been helping my brother move into his new apartment - excuses, excuses.
Blah blah.
But I was going to make a post about his new place, it's just not finished yet. It looks fine in person, but on camera it's kind of dull. So we'll have to accessorize before I can post about it.

April Favorites

Luckily, I wasn't disappointed in any products last month! So needless to say, April was a good month for me haha. I know I'm a bit late on this, but it's been storming lately, and I don't have any studio lights, so I had to wait for the sun to come out. Buuut enough excuses - let's get on with it!

I cannot express my love for this enough! It's very soothing and a great way to start and end the day. I'm not a fan of cleansing foams, because they tend to just thin out instead of actually lather. But this was surprisingly very good. You can't feel it doing anything to your skin until you wash it off. And you see results the first time you use it - which I love! I usually like something that feels like it's working, but this is such a good product, I don't even care how gentle it is.

This says it's a "bodifying glaze" but I've never put it throughout all of my hair, I only put it at my roots. But this is seriously the best. I find that a lot of volumizers give you great volume for the first few hours, and then throughout the day (even with a good amount of hairspray), it falls and goes lifeless - That is not the case with this one! The price seems a little steep until you realize you don't need much to get great volume. The smell is odd - not bad, just odd. It smells like Cherry Vanilla NyQuill mixed with kind of an ocean smell.. It's odd, but surprisingly not bad!

There's not much I can say about this besides the fact that it's just a really good toner. It makes my face feel extra clean, and leaves behind a very subtle, soothing tingling to the skin. It smells quite nice - very fresh and clean. It almost has kind of a very subtle cucumber scent, and I'm not a fan of cucumbers at all, but it's so subtle that it's actually very nice.

I really didn't want to buy this because of the name - I didn't want people searching for naughty things and finding my blog! But after months of searching for dupes, I came up with nothing and I caved. And I'm so happy I did! I love this, it's so subtle. It's just a lovely peach with a bit of gold shimmer to it.

I bought this a while ago at Ulta, because it was a cute little travel size and it was on sale for $3, and I mentioned it in a haul back in February. I haven't used it much until recently because I've been parting my hair in the middle, and need as much volume as i can get. I just sprinkle it on my part and gently rub it in, and I don't have to worry about showing to much scalp for the rest of the day - it's great!

I bought this a couple months ago - used it once, didn't like it, and it ended up staying in the back of my drawer until a few weeks ago. I love it now! I usually go for more of a full, long, voluminous look, but this is a great change. And it amazes me how just a slight change in brush creates a completely different look - always has, always will.


So what did you guys think of these favorites? Have you tried any? If so, do you agree with my opinions or no?

Givenchy Haul / First Impressions

Hello lovies!

It's been a while since I've posted anything, feels like it's been months! Luckily, it's only been a week, so I don't feel too bad about not updating! So, my parents went on vacation a few weeks ago and decided to spoil themselves with some Givenchy products. And little did they know.. spoiling themselves also meant spoiling me! ;)

Le Soin Noir - $380.00

Le Soin Noir is an anti-aging moisturizer, and it says to use it day and night, but it does not dry well at all, so I only use it at night. The moisturizer is made from Vital Black Algae Sap Concentrate is a natural age-defier that "restores communication between the skin's cells", "helps maintain and prolong cellular longevity," and "leaves your complexion firm, glowing, and even-toned" - who doesn't need that?! Vital Black Algae Sap Concentrate is very sensitive, you cannot touch it with your hands or it will contaminate the entire jar - so it comes with a little spoon to scoop it out with! Obviously, I don't use it often - a) because of the price, and b) I'm 18, I don't need expensive anti-aging creams. I only use it when my skin's on the drier side and needs a little pick-me-up!

Obviously, I am not a man. This was for my father, and he still does not use it! But I just wanted to discuss how good this smells. It smells like a manlier version of the Swan and Dolphin hotel in Orlando, which is like a fresh-springy-beachy-floral scent. It smells so good!

Le Soin Noir Yeux is the eye cream version of the Le Soin Noir moisturizer. It promises what most eye creams promise: "reduce puffiness", "brightens dark circles", "smoothes and evens out the entire eye contour area." I've only used it once, I didn't notice a difference like I did the first time I used the Le Soin Noir, but that is because it's an eye cream, I just didn't want to keep using it when I didn't really need it that much.

Umm.. Where do I start with this? It's not bad, it's just not that great. You know? It's okay. I think I just expected more from it. It doesn't have a strong scent, which is good, but I'll definitely be sticking to my Hope in a Jar.

I honestly haven't tried this one, and considering what the Hydra Sparkling moisturizer is like, I probably won't be impressed. Also, funny story, I've lost it since the day I took these pictures.. Can't find it - but it's somewhere around here! When I find it, I'll try it.

This came as a free sample, and it smells so good. I'd definitely say it's a scent for all ages, because it's light and floral, very pretty and feminine, but it's also mature. I'm someone who sticks to one perfume until I'm sick of it. I like to have a scent that really captures my personality, so I'll change my perfume when I feel it doesn't fit me anymore. But I know a lot of people collect perfumes, and wear one during the day and a different one at night, or for different occasions - and for those people, I'd say this is a great day perfume, and definitely great for work!

Green - N/A / Black - $86.00

These were also free samples, we got two of each, and I have not used them yet. I can not find the No Surgetics Plasti Sculpt Lifting Mask anywhere online - so if you know what it does, please tell me! As for the Black For Light Mask, I'm really excited to use it. It says it is a "unique mask with a black, velvety foam texture and luminous particles that purify the skin," and promises that "after use the complexion becomes amazingly brightened and bursts with freshness and vitality," and "the skin radiates a new glow, as if illuminated from within." And that just sounds nice, and I'm just excited!


So have you tried any of these? If you have, make sure you leave a comment, telling me what you thought of them!

April Wishes

1. Topshop Knitted Legend Crop Sweater - Let's be honest, I don't need anymore sweaters, especially spring sweaters! The next time I'll be able to wear sweaters is in the winter (maybe fall, if I'm lucky). BUT IT'S JUST SO CUTE! - $72.00

2. Kimchi Blue Spectator Colorblock Satchel - I've been wanting a colorblock bag for a while now, and I really like this one. It's a good price for the size, but it is at Urban Outfitters, and I've had bad experiences with a lot of bags from there. I'm going to an Urban Outfitters next week, so I'll see if it's good quality or not. - $59.00

3. Topshop Knitted Barcode Motif Jumper - Don't need it for weather conditions, but I'm pretty sure I need it for my heart. I know if I don't buy this, I'm going to regret it, and I'm going to hate myself every time I wear black and white when it's cold. (Got a bit dramatic there haha) - $68.00

4. BDG Acid-Washed Button-Down Chambray Shirt - This is just the cutest chambray shirt I've seen. The color's Peach, but it is an acid wash, so peach mixed with the blue makes it come out more a purple - which I love! - $59.00

5. Topshop Bright Flower Cami Top - I just think this is really cute for spring. And it's really just so simple, that you can wear it any other spring, no matter what the trend is! It's pricey for a tank top, so I'm going to wait until it goes on sale. - $72.00

6. Ever Rose Crown - I can't think of a time where I would ever wear something this big and bold on my head, but it's so cute, and if I were ever given the opportunity to wear it, I would! - $110.00

7. Topshop MOTO 'POW' Bleach Joni Jeans - I can't remember the last time I absolutely fell in love with a pair of jeans before I put them on, but Topshop never fails! - $84.00

8. Topshop Knitted Letter Motif Crop Jumper - I've mentioned these before in another wishlist, but I still don't have them, and I still want them! - $64.00

9. Topshop Lips in Saint - I got a Topshop lip tint in the mail yesterday, and I already need more! I love pink lips, a neutral/ baby pink is something I've been looking for for a while now, and I hope this is it! - $16.00


Let me know in the comments if you guys own or want any of these - especially the lipstick! If you have this lipstick, let me know if it's neutral or bright, please :)

The Versatile Blogger Award!

Hello lovies!

Thanks to both Jenni and Charlotte for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award! They're both so sweet, and their blogs are definitely worth checking out. Thank you guys!

1. Thank the ones who nominated you and make sure to add their link.
2. List 7 facts about yourself.
3. Choose 15 new bloggers to nominate.
4. Comment on their latest post, telling them you nominated them.

Let's get to it!

1. My Nana let me taste her iced coffee when I was like 1 or 2, and then I was obsessed with coffee until 2 years ago, and now I prefer tea.

2. I blame my Nana for me being only 5 ft. (4' 11.8" actually, but let's just round it off).

3. I enjoy reading, but I can never find a book that I enjoy reading. I guess that's why I like blogging so much!

4. I'm very picky when it comes to chocolate, and I only crave it on rare occasions.

5. Personally, one of the worst things is when you crave soup in the middle of summer. Because why would you eat soup when it's like 90 to 100 degrees outside??

6. I will never understand how fast food is cheaper than fruits and vegetables. Like, yeah okay, that may not be real chicken, but it's still an entire meal that's cheaper than one avocado!

7. I was planning on taking a year off from school, but I actually ended up just taking a semester off, and now I'm starting college next month.
