My Cancun Trip Recap 2016

cancun 1

As some of you may know, I recently went to Cancun for vacation. That’s one of the reasons why the blog has been absent and lonely the past few weeks. A bigger reason is because the week before I left my computer decide to give out on me. I’m not one to usually plan and schedule blog posts ahead of time, but I do like to schedule posts when I go on vacation so my blog won’t be lonely. I…

Things That Made Me Happy (18)

things that made me happy 18

My week started off pretty crappy but ended on a good note. I have been feeling very..frustrated about staying home all day all week since my car was getting fixed and just having my days go by so fast without feeling like I did anything.  We ended up going to Phoenix this past weekend to go eat and shop and look for any last-minute stuff we may need for vacation. I did a lot of shopping and ate good food…

Affordable Bronzing with L’oreal Glam Bronze

affordable bronzing with loreal glam bronze

I’m very pale so I always need some sort of bronzer or contour shade to add some color and dimension to my face. I always have a hard time finding a bronzer that is cool toned but most of the ones I try are warmed tone which end up looking orange or red on my skin. I have been using the Kat Von D Shade & Light Palette as bronzer because the shades are cool and light enough for me,…

I had such a fun, fun week!  Although it’s been super hot here in Arizona, (it was 117 degrees yesterday and it’s over 100 degrees around midnight) it’s been great. I think since I was born here, I’m so used to the weather by now and I do have to say that I’ve been loving wearing shorts and tank tops and having my hair in a messy bun. We know how to survive the hot weather by now: go to…

10 YA Books To Add To Your Beach Bag This Summer

10 ya books to add to your beach bag this summer

Since I’ve mentioned my book blog on here a few times, some of you had asked for book recs and since it’s summer and beach reads are some of my favorite kinds of books, I thought it would be the perfect time to share some of my book recs with you guys.  When I think of beach reads, for some reason YA Contemporary is the first thing that comes to mind too. I actually do like reading a lot of…

Beauty Products I Keep Buying

beauty products i keep buying

As much as I love finding and trying new beauty products, I also love finding my favorite products. Those products that I keep buying or have backups of because I love them so much. I’m happy (and so is my wallet) that most of these products are from the drugstore although I do love Anastasia Beverly Hills and It Cosmetics and think their products are worth every penny!  All of the products pictures above are products that I’ve bought more…

With all the horrible events that happened this weekend, it’s always extra nice to think about and remember all the good and happy things in life. This is why this is one of my favorite posts to do every week. I had a pretty great week although I don’t remember most of it and it went by in a blur.  I went to sleep very early most days so getting a lot of sleep was nice. Hope everyone else had…

6 Places on My Travel Wish List

top 6 places on my travel bucket list

(all images from Pinterest, collage made by my awesome co-blogger)  I love to get away. I don’t really care if it’s to another country, to the other end of the country, or a few hours away. Being able to travel, even if it’s only for a weekend is also so nice and relaxing and I always look forward to any time I can get out-of-town.  Even if it is only to go camping. We didn’t get to go on vacation…

Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream

garnier refreshing gel cream

Confession: I really hate lotion.  Especially lotion for my face.  I never used to use lotion for my face or my body until this year.  Luckily, I don’t have dry skin, but I really wanted to start taking care of my skin now that I’m 30 years old.  I’ve been looking into different face creams lately and although I use them, I wasn’t really happy with one.  (I really, really hate lotion).  I came across the Garnier Refreshing Gel-Cream on…

Insecurities & How To Deal With Them

Insecurities & How To Deal With Them

Obviously, I love makeup. I have way more than I need and some of it is pretty expensive. But contrary to that annoying stereotype, the fact that I love makeup and love to wear it doesn’t mean that I’m shallow or dumb. I’d like to think that I’m pretty smart. Just because I love makeup doesn’t mean that there isn’t more to me. I love books and I love to read (that’s an understatement), I love clothes, I love baking,…
