What's in my Bag?

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Happy national lipstick day ladies!
Today I'm spilling what's in my bag...
This particular bag is obviously on the smaller side, so I tend to carry much less than I normally do. This is truly my list of essentials!
* Here I went for a card holder rather than my full wallet. This mint green faux crocodile card holder is from Target, whoop whoop they have great prices that I just can't pass up.
* Gotta have my sunnies and phone at all times. I've been using this Milkyway Iphone case because it perfectly accentuates the gold back to my phone. I've had this one for awhile and still love it to death but I 'am currently looking for an alternate.
* As far as makeup goes and for the sake of this mini bag, I opted out of carrying my mascara and eyeliner and went for just my compact. This Nars compact is great, it comes with a mirror and has great coverage for last minute touch ups. I always carry a lipstick, lip gloss and a lip balm no matter what. As far as today's rotation: YSL Gloss Volupte #19 , Tom Ford #14 Sable Smoke Lip Color, and Sin-Min's Horchata lip balm. The gloss is the perfect touch of shine and provides just a touch of color. The lipstick is a great nude shade to vamp it up and the lip balm keeps my lips hydrated throughout the day while smelling yummy hehe. I actually got this lip balm in a goodie bag and I'm obsessed with it. What are your fav lippies? XO

Why do I love fashion?

This has got to be the question that every fashion blogger can answer, right? I've been thinking this over, and I love it simply because it makes me feel better about myself. When I put on something that I love, I truly feel great. I love that fashion has that power.

In My Culotte

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

A modern day culotte is a knee length pant that hangs like a skirt. It's been so hot in LA these last few days, that these pants seemed like the appropriate choice. I love the allusion of a skirt but the idea that you can function as though you would in a pant. This was my first time wearing them, and I have to say I'm a big fan! Culottes are quickly becoming the next fashion trend and I think these are great for the summer. XO

Hey guys! I'm really excited about this post. This particular ootd was reposted on Windsor Store's Social media and I was announced this weeks winner of their weekly IG contest. When I received the news, I was ecstatic. It felt very satisfying that my blogger efforts weren't being unnoticed. I frequently have been getting down on myself and this was just the boost I needed. I know it's just a small step forward, but it helped me realize that I need to stop doubting my abilities and work harder at this. It's important to believe in yourself, and follow your dreams. I know it's cliche to say, but it's so true. XOXO
