Holiday Beauty Picks + The Favs

 Ok y'all - it is SO hard to show you my whole beauty/skincare stash. Trying my best not to get too crazed/overwhelming. I was looking through Sephora and honestly I cannot keep up with all of these sales and promos lol But I will say there are a ton of products on sale up 50% off and if you are a member of their Beauty Insiders program  there will be a ton of additional $$$ off, samples, and rewards. I know now that everyone is out and about/in the mood for a little purchasing #tistheseason and I wanted to share what I see great value in, currently Love, and what is on my beauty Hit list.

Value Sets
So when it comes to Value Sets I really like trying to buy either brands I have been wanting to try or something that is practical I know will be used. The best way to get a full picture idea of what a line is like is to sample a little bit of everything or a best sellers set. Ive discovered so many great brands through best seller sets - Peter Thomas Roth, Fresh, Drunk Elephant, too many more lol So whether it's a gift or a little something for yourself -face masks, glosses, dry shampoo, perfumes, and mascara are all great options. I know I travel a lot and most of my friends do too so these are nice gifts that will be used on the go or even as a gym bag stash.

Current LOVES
  • JoMalone - I made the splurge and brought the WoodSage and Sea salt perfume during the Sephora Insider 20% off sale. It smells amazing and honestly completely worth it. I want to shower in it lol I'm already making a dint in it..There is a Trio gift set available now with the cologne, hand cream, and body wash. 
  • Laneige - This is such a great reasonably priced line. I Absolutely love the lip mask and use it every single night. The water mask is great too and my skin feels super hydrated and plump in the am.
  • Grande Lash - My lashes have definitely grown since using, I've used this the last few months and there is such a noticeable difference. SO happy to finally have some baby lashes in the works. It is pricy but there are smaller tube sets available. Definitely give it a try. 
  • Laura Mercier Set Powder - This stuff has lasted me years...a little goes a long way and it is the best makeup set powder. Totally worth the price.
  • Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer - New new and currently loving! This primer is soo good and really gives you that true blurred pore look. I feel like if I use a little under my everyday makeup I don't really use as much concealer/CC cream. 
HIT List 
#1 on my list is ALL the Charlotte Tilbury. I recently bought her Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria (teehee). Seriously it is the perfect nude! Also I was reading a few articles and Charlotte Tilbury was behind the gorgeous Victoria Secret Fashion Show looks this year. OMG the looks were beautiful and anything Angel worthy I'm all about.
I do not have all of these pictured in the collage above but I have wanted to also try the Tatcha Best sellers set along with  Fresh Facial on the Fly. I have the Fresh face wash and Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer that I love so far...I wanted to expand and see how I like some of the other best sellers.

***Sooo the makeup is great and all but at the end of the day most important are Skincare and maintenance. Forever Young right? Working on a skin care routine post, but I wanted to link what I currently have been using and love below.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving holiday with your family and loved ones! I spent Thanksgiving day with my family here in Houston and then over the weekend we went to see Chayson's family in College Station. OMG that Texas A&M Game y' was definitely one to remember Ags. Whoop. Let me know if you found this post helpful - working to share more of my favorite products/shopping finds with you all :) Let me know too if you find anything good with all the sales/promos going on. Happy Shopping.

3 Pieces to Suit Up for Fall

HOW in the WORLD is October already gone? I'm ready but kind of not to get into the holidays - Can we just sit around with the pumpkins a little longer? Yep, I did it - BYOPumpkin and it worked haha. Well ok Thanksgiving is still "Harvest" so it's all good. November is in full swing and besides February (Bday and travel months) I have to say October/November are favorites of mine. I've been spending a lot of time with the family, cozy date nights in, and focusing on my workout routine and balance. The weather finally is getting cooler and I can actually layer and style more comfortably. Well light layers for Texas!

How great is this blazer color? It is such a great Bershka find (links here). It's time to suit up for fall and y'all know I love the tailored menswear style. I'm starting to see more takes on it in brighter bold colors these days. It's interesting that bits of what we normally would consider "Fall" colorations (Spice, Mustard, Mauve) are making their way into Spring. This outfit was actually last Monday's look in NYC -It's comfortable, easy, and looks put together for meetings.

Outfit Pieces

  1. Blazer
  2. Cami
  3. OTK boots
I would say overall this is an easy way to look more sophisticated/polished and most of you probably already even own these pieces. I hope you all are off to a great week! I had such a great week in NY last week. I caught up with all the friends, and Chayson and I shot our engagement photos. AHHH they came out great thanks to my friend and photog Griffin. Check her out here NYC peeps.
