What’s in my makeup bag?


One thing all of my friends know about me is that I love makeup. I am constantly trying out new products and blowing all of my money in Sephora. People ask me nearly every day what kind of makeup products I use and I’m here to list four of my favorites:

Bye Bye Under Eye concealer by IT Cosmetics

You don’t know you need it… but you need it. This concealer changed the game for me. I was tired of using concealer that didn’t last all day but now you can really say “bye bye” to your under-eye dark circles.

L’Oreal True Match Foundation

I used to use Mac Matchmaster foundation but paying that much for foundation every couple of months got real old, real quick. I decided to try to find a drugstore foundation that doesn’t look like a drugstore foundation. L’Oreal True Match foundation offers so many different shades so that everyone can find their match. It’s natural looking, yet still has great coverage for day or night.

LORAC TANtalizer Highlighter & Matte Bronzer Duo

The BEST bronzer I have ever used. It takes my contour to the next level. The highlighter in this palette is not as luminous as I like my highlighter to be, but if you like a subtle glow, it’s perfect for you!

Brow Wiz by Anastasia Beverly Hills

I love this brow pencil. It’s so precise and easy to use. It blends into a flawless finish and keeps your brows ~on fleek~ all day or all night long.

Bikinis in January… yes.


Don’t wait until hot weather rolls around, buy your spring break swimsuit wardrobe NOW! You’ll thank me later.

We ladies love to have a selection of swimsuits which is not cheap. Even buying a single high quality swimsuit can put a dent in your wallet. The best thing to do before spring break rolls around is to start buying them ASAP while swimsuits aren’t in season. You’ll find plenty of markdowns and sales that you won’t find ANYWHERE once March rolls around.

One of the best ways I hunt down the best swimsuit deals is finding where I can get them for free (lol, I’m on a college budget). Go on your Instagram explore page and look for models who post bikini pictures because often times, those social media influencers (like myself) have giveaways! If the price you have to pay for a chance to win a free swimsuit is to follow a swimsuit company, it’s well worth it.

If you don’t get lucky finding a giveaway, chances are you will find plenty of discount codes and swimsuit companies holding sales to get rid of any bikinis they have leftover from last season.

Don’t wait until Spring! You’ll end up paying far more than you want to. Check out some of my favorite swimsuits:

Liquid Lipstick LIFE HACK


One of the biggest trends in the makeup industry right now is liquid lipstick. The kind that comes in what looks like a lipgloss tube, goes on wet, and dries to a matte finish. This is the kind of makeup product that you really can’t find in a drug store. And we all know how expensive stores like Sephora can be.

I have been doing my research on liquid lipsticks because I really love them! They last all day or all night and look fantastic. Most of them cost from $20-30 and I just think it’s crazy to spend that much money on a tube of lipstick. BUT, I found a fantastic brand called Colourpop Cosmetics that sells lots and lots of shades of liquid lipsticks for such an affordable price! $6 to be exact. Yes, $6 for a single tube of liquid lipstick!

Check out some of my favorite shades:

This is Limbo by Colourpop Cosmetics. It is a beautiful shade of dark brown that has such a comfortable and light wear.

IMG_7507

This is Beeper by Colourpop Cosmetics. Light enough to wear during the daytime for a more dramatic look and dark enough to look fierce during the night.

IMG_7508

This is Rooch by Colourpop Cosmetics. If you’re like me and have always loved a classic dark, blood red lip, this is perfect for you!

I was thrilled to find a makeup brand that sells quality liquid lipsticks at an affordable price so I hope you are thrilled too! Be sure to check out their website here where you can find their other products like lipglosses, eyeshadow palettes, eyebrow pencils, and much more all at an affordable price.

BootayBag BLISS

Subscription services are one of the latest trends in the business world but I can’t name a subscription service that tops this one.

BootayBag is a subscription service that sends you the ~cutest~ bag of undies each month. I received my first BootayBag in the mail and was thrilled with it! I opened the bag to be surprised by two adorable pairs of panties that I love. It’s like buying a gift for yourself, truly.

Why bother with 5 for $27 when you can pay $12 to have two perfect pairs of designer panties delivered to your door???

Hurry and sign up for your subscription to get your BootayBag too! Don’t forget, #undermatters.

Feeling Reckless?

Feeling Reckless?

I usually am and I love to flaunt it with my Y&R attire. These tees as soft and as cozy as they come and ironically still make you feel like a badass. I can’t think of many things better than that.

Check out their site here to get in on the Young & Reckless movement.

Casa Bikini… aka a bikini GOLDMINE


IMG_9251

Spring break is in full swing, and nothing made me more ready for the beach than my Casa Bikini! Being a Florida girl, I have worn lots and lots of bikinis in my day, and I have to say this one is one of my favorites.

The fit is true to size, which is great to know especially if you plan on ordering your bikini online! I love the way it hugs my hips and makes me feel sexy.

But I must reveal my absolute favorite part about Casa Bikini… Because it is a Miami based bikini boutique, they never over-produce designs which ultimately makes your bikini more unique. So, the chances of you seeing another gal at the beach in the same bikini as you is pretty unlikely. And that’s pretty awesome.

I’m always on the lookout for awesome new bikinis, so stay tuned for more! But for now, be sure to snag a bikini from Casa Bikini today to be the hottest babe on the beach for spring break!
