Is it just me or is American Eagle coming out with an insane amount of new products recently? It seems like their online store is rapidly growing and with all of the new releases, it’s hard to keep up! Well, I’ve made a few orders recently so I thought we’d settle in, sip some coffee, and chat about my favorite finds.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I have been wearing this t-shirt on repeat. The style pairs perfectly with animal print, but I have also thrown it on with a pair denim shorts for a more casual look. It runs TTS and I’m wearing a size medium.
I can’t get enough of the fun, printed leggings AE has recently released! Throughout Fall and Winter, you’ll likely always find me in leggings and a sweater, but why give up color just because it’s cold outside?! The pretties run TTS and I’m wearing a sized medium.
Every year, Aerie comes out with the perfect, casual oversized sweatshirts and I am OBSESSED with the colors they chose for this season. I always snag a couple of these and pair them with shorts as we transition and then swap over to layered under a vest for chillier nights. The tunic length is great for wearing with leggings. But do keep in mind that these run LARGE. I’m wearing a size XS and they’re still a little big.
Hi, dolls! I have put together a post today that is for my beauty lovers! It has taken me years to dive into the colorful, affordable world of Colourpop Cosmetics. To be honest, I don’t love ordering beauty products online and with such an overwhelming array of products, sister companies, and near constant collection releases, I didn’t know where to start! So I did some research, ordered boxfuls of products, and put them all to the test for y’all. So today, I am going to narrow down the options and share my tried-and-true favorites. Spoiler alert… the prices and quality are AMAZING!
Glisten Up Vitamin C Setting Spray: Colourpop’s sister brand, Fourth Ray Beauty, created my DREAM setting spray. It has everything I want in a setting spray – hyaluronic acid for added hydration, Vitamin C for brightness, a soft shimmer for added dewiness, and a spray nozzle that doesn’t gunk up. An added bonus is the amazing orange smell!
Honeydude Cream Gel Liner: My favorite trick for a wide-eyed look is to pop a light eyeliner into your waterline as opposed to black. Keep in mind that a black liner will make your eyes look smaller. And while many people opt for white, I have found that a nude liner looks more natural and less stark. Best of all the color is pigmented and waterproof 🙂
Ultra Blotted Lip in Scenic Route: I’m new to the Ultra Blotted Lip but they are exactly as the name suggests. They go on like a liquid lip, but wear as though you blotted it down. It’s the perfect amount of sheer color, but are so comfortable on the lips.
Just a Tint Lip Crayon Set in Peach, Please: The name of these lip crayons is quite deceiving because they are beyond pigmented. Not only do they smell unbelievably delicious, the colors are so warm and wearable. If you love a great neutral and a warm peach for the lips, this is the set for you.
Blush Stix in Under Pressure: This is my first time trying stick or cream blush and why did I wait SO long?! Cream blushes make your cheeks look so glowy and healthy, but the trick is finding one that lays over your powder products without pulling them up. The technique I’ve found that work best is to skip going straight onto your skin with the stick and instead opt for a stippling brush. I tap the brush onto the stick and then apply it to the cheek for a perfect flush!
SOL Body Shimmering Dry Oil in Soft Gold: This summer was THE summer of body shimmer products. But our options essentially boiled down to expensive, high-end body shimmers or drugstore products that lacked a punch of shine. That is, until SOL Body released their Shimmering Dry Oils and Glow Oils. They smell so good and pack a bright punch without all the stickiness.
Baby Got Peach Eyeshadow Palette: You’ve likely seen Colourpop’s near constant release of $12 monochromatic eyeshadow palettes throughout the summer, but my interest wasn’t quite peaked until the release of the Baby Got Peach Palette. This 12-pan palette features my go-to warm peachy neutral shades and is perfect for transitioning to Fall. To see this palette in action, scroll down and watch the YouTube tutorial I recorded.
Fresh n Peachy Pressed Blush: I have had a thing lately for blush; specifically, peach blushes. It is my favorite shade to give me a warm flush! Colourpop has stunning pressed blushes, but the Fresh n Peachy blush is so pigmented and gorgeous with the cutest packaging to boot.
Super Shock Shadow: Did you catch that I didn’t suggest a particular shade or set? That’s simply because you literally can’t go wrong with a Super Shock Shadow. If you are curious about where to start, I am loving the Halo Top set in Strawberry and the Peach Kit.
So Jaded Palette: This is the only product on my list that I haven’t tested, but only because it sold out almost immediately. Colourpop just released its first mega-palette with one of my favorite beauty YouTubers, Kathleen Lights, and it looks STUNNING. Colourpop is known for its eyeshadow formula consistency across the board, so I’m sure this stunning palette will live up to the hype.
Some girls go to Fashion Week… and some go to Vegas 😉 I, my friends, am the latter! Year after year I always think, “should I go to NYFW?” And every year I always come to the conclusion that it doesn’t quite fit my brand. BUT that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to socialize with my favorite bloggers. So, I invited my girls Sara of Sabby Style and Kelssey of The Styled Blonde to meet me in Vegas for a fun girls’ trip.
I’ll be heading out on Tuesday and I am both excited and nervous. If y’all are new, I struggled with anxiety HARD for a year. I wrote a big ol’ post about it HERE. And while I am leaps and bounds from where I started, this will be my first time flying alone so send all the good vibes my way 🙂 I know the minute I am reunited with my girls – and out of the damn airport (my trigger) – I will be fine.
All that aside, I can’t tell y’all how excited I am! The only snag in my plan was my wardrobe. You know that I love my florals, pastels, and preppy, southern looks, but that ain’t gonna cut it on the west coast. So I picked up a handful of new outfits and wanted to share them with you guys today! I opted for a ton of animal print, graphic tees, and printed skirts. It’s gonna be hot AF in Nevada, but I certainly didn’t want to splurge on more Summer items since Fall is right around the corner, so everything can be incorporated into your Fall wardrobe.
Scroll to the bottom of this post to see what I will be wearing in Vegas and then be sure to follow along on Instagram to see all of them in action!
