Fashion inspiration of the day

I am so charmed by this dress and want it so badly. Elizabeth Gillies looks so beautiful in this and I’ve fallen in love with so many of her looks (and her characters looks from Dynasty).

My glowy no makeup makeup look

Hi! Since I’ve mostly been waking up drinking coffee than getting in my bikini & making cocktails and sunbathing in my backyard with my roommate I haven’t needed the most elaborate makeup routine. I’m of the “i need to put my face on” camp so most days I do do a little something. This look is super glowy fresh faced and youthful. I like it cause it makes me look well rested and perky. This is a little time lapse of me doing my glowy no makeup makeup look:

The final look
The products:
1. Wet and wild photo focus concealer (I used the shade light ivory)
2. Space case highlighter in Seen from Space 1c (for under eyebrows)
3. Maybelline total temptation brow definer in soft brown
4. Space case blush in its not me, it’s my sign
5. Doucce bombastic lash volumizer mascara
6. M.A.C strobe cream in pinklite (the most natural and glowy highlight I’ve ever loved)
7. Benefit gimme brow
8. Laura Geller nude kisses lip hugging lip gloss in a skinny dip

Belated February Favorites

Hi! I hope you had a lovely February she writes from a week plus into March.  My favorites of the month are late once again and I’m hoping to not make this a tradition this year.

Here were my favorite things this month:

The Metropolitan Museum of Art: This is my new favorite museum in the world.  It’s so glamorous and one of the great privileges of being a New Yorker is that you can pay whatever you want. My best friend and I went yesterday and paid one dollar each.  There’s so much marble and home decor (for when you’re extremely wealthy of course).  The architecture is unreal and there are lots of parts of the museum that are full of sunlight, statues, and columns.  It feels very dreamy and surreal.  Of course, it is now one of the many museums currently closed due to the virus.  Here’s some pics of me being annoying in front of beautiful art.

Cigarette pants: I’m not a big pant person because they’re super uncomfortable for me but cigarette pants are so chic and make me feel like a seductive femme fatale in an old movie.  I feel like cigarette pants are the most feminine pants and I have a very feminine style.

These are one of the rare things in this world that is worth more than it costs.  It’s so cheap smells so good and makes my skin feel out of this world soft when I’m done scrubbing myself down with it in the shower.  I love how many scents there are (my favorite is the mango).  I try to exfoliate once a week and I used to use coffee grinds and brown sugar but I realized I don’t want to smell like coffee all the time since I’m already always clutching my coffee like it’s the cure.

Nightly refresh mouthwash: It makes my teeth feel so smooth and literally squeaky clean.

Stress ease tea:  I like the cinnamon flavor best cause I find it to be the most comforting. It’s very soothing and I don’t know if it’s a placebo or not but my best friend and I were very sick and drank a very hot cup of this and felt a lot better the next day.

Dislikes:

Essie Gel Nail Polish: literally chipped the first day and then I tried again because I had read some good reviews of it online and it chipped right away once again.  It seems to be regular nail polish to me and not at all gel.

The fact that people have legitimately hoarded toilet paper???! And that most stores are out of it?? There are problems that us civilians have to deal with and some that we create, I don’t know why we had to create this problem smh.  I hate to see greed all around me in such an apparent and unnecessary way.

An article for the broke skincare enthusiasts

Hi all! I found this article on the insta stories of @esteelaundry. @esteelaundry is one of my favorite instagram accounts because they spill the tea on the beauty industry. They also have good reviews and tell you which beauty companies not to support because of their problematic owners and which products don’t live up to the hype. They had me throwing out my banana bright eye cream because a lot of people had been reporting serious eye swelling problems and they included photos send it by their followers.

I love this article because it gives so many recommendations for skin care that I can afford. I’m really excited to check some of these out and thought I’d share.
