March Favorites - Get the Glow

Hi everyone! Springing forward and integrating more wellness/lifestyle posts on ze blog. Looking for a fresh update and what's more fresh than March Beauty favs?! Filtered through my product accumulation and working to get my GLOW + keeping the makeups simple...thanks to that sticky Texas heat!

  • Simplicity is key and that is where my love for palettes comes in. My on the go mornings from the gym to work and traveling once a month I've made sure to pack my NYX Love Contours All Palette. There is just enough glow, contour/highlight, and neutral eye shadow for an everyday easy look. With the contour bronze shades I honestly just swipe a fluffy brush in it and lightly dust my face -easy. And yes love will contour ALL! Right Chayson? lol ;P
  • Pretty in pink and I am loving these lippies! Honey Pink matte nudes have been in my bag these days and the peach honey tone is so pretty paired with this Rimmel liner. Both are great affordable drugstore options and bring on the summer feels.
  • When I need of a quick no make up fix - Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue is such a saver. OK I have been super obsessed with this tinted gel. I've made my second purchase on it and I love that it is SO light, hydrating and sometimes it's all you need to wear. The coverage is buildable adding a few drops of foundation and it's a great post gym/weekend errand face base.
  • Longer days means Loreal Lumi Glowtion! This is a newbie for me and I've loved adding this to my tinted moisture gel.  This adds a natural glow minus any orange look. Plus Glowtion is such a fun name lol In need of a little color and this stuff is a great way to highlight a sun kissed look.
  • Probably the only chocolate I will not eat would be the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. Back to palettes and this one has the prettiest natural colors and has an amazing cocoa scent. It's made with 100% cocoa power and the shimmer + pigment is on pointttt.
  • Loving all the lush lashes these days but not so much the upkeep and $$$ for falsies. I started using Lash Food LashTransformation few weeks ago and I'm hoping to see some natural growth. I purchased the travel kit to sample but the full set is linked here if you'd like to give it a try.
  • Beauty from the inside out is the absolute best kind of pretty. I've been taking collagen powder with my coffee since December and love the added protein and boost. This new Vital Proteins Dark Chocolate Berry Collagen came out and it's so good! It's clean Whole30 approved and  I've been reading a lot/researching and what we consume is 100% related to our complexion. Collagen is a major building block for hair, skin, nails, skin elasticity, and that youthhhh. #ForeverYoung.

Let me know if you all enjoy posts like this! I have a lot of beauty favorites, recipes, and wellness tips/things I have learned the past few years. Hope you all are having a great week and also feel free to send me any suggestions of product and things you like to use in your Spring/Summer beauty.

Snaps in the City

Hiii Ok sooo I feel like this post is a little all over the place - Basically I want to talk about my new obsession Bershka#MillenialPINK, my most worn list, and my NYC recent favs hitlist.
Also thank you #ChaysonHoltPhotography - this post is possible by you LOL xoxoxo
#Trending Millennial Pink anyone? Yes it's a thing and I LOVE it. The color that never seems to fade and a fan favorite of my people - also a flattering color for many people of ALL ages. I was reading up on it and this bubblegum hue represents a fondness for the good ol childhood days, female empowerment/gender =, and soothing feels for the less than stellar world moments these days. We could all use a little pop of positivity today -I've always been a girly girl (surprise) and I was so excited when I found this pink furry jacket. I've had so many compliments on it and feel like YAS in it. It was the perfect Bday outfit completer and touch of glam to a neutral sweater/top.
As the season moves further into Spring I was like ahh I need to get this post out!  I was able to score my furry friend above at the NYC Bershka Pop up in Soho. I loved shopping Bershka aka Zara's little sister...the style is similar (a little younger, still very trendy) and the price point fits more of an H&M/F21.
When traveling for 10 days it's like what on earth do I bring? Everything. Ok jk...I of course packed a grouping of neutral colors/styles and ended up purchasing my pink color pop jacket. Below hit my recent most worn list and I'm sure you'll see a few of the same items pop up in my recent posts. Listed below :)
Recent City Favs :) Let me know if you all make a trip!

Street Style + Jan W30 Update

I'm back I'm back! Hi everyone - hope you all had a great Jan and AH also Feb! A little MIA lately with work travel but we are back. I completed January Whole30 Yay and had a nice relaxing month. In Feb we hit the ground running with a family wedding, NYC market, LasVegas market, and birthday week (city snaps and post coming soon). As much fun as travel can be- I'm happy to be back on my Houston routine and spend some time with fam and friends back home. Hoping to hop back on the blog and share more of my latest finds, stylefile/beauty favs, and lifestyle recipe posts.
Who is feeling all the casual vibes these days? This whole Spring transition timing can be tricky to work with. All the stores are moving out of Fall/Winter and something new and fresh needs to happen...but sometimes the weather and shopping selection feels mehhh. Especially for my Northeastern girls - it's still SO cold in the city! Athletic streetwear looks are still trending and are a fresh way to Spring forward - especially after coming out of #newyearnewme January (which I need to hop back on the ChefV foodie train).Who would have thought that T-shirts and tennis shoes would be such an AHA fashion moment.  Hey, I'm into it and I have several logo tees that I've paired under a jean jacket+boots or duster jacket (above). T-shirt dresses are also a great way to keep style and comfort in mind without the "am I supposed to wear yoga/jogger pants" feeling. I found this Adidas T dress on sale a few months ago but there's still a few sizes left online here and here.  A great way to elevate a sporty look is adding classic colors - I'm such a fan of transitional grey, blush, pale blues, and cream colors.
Hope everyone has a great week - I had such a fun time back in the city last week and catching up with college friends at a wedding this weekend.
Back to my scheduled programming here in H-town.
