I’m not a huge fan of cardigans. In fact I find them rather obnoxious. They never quite fit me right and the constant slumping and falling over my arms drives me crazy. Howeverrrrr this kimono trend has me thinking otherwise. First off we all know my obsession with flowy clothes. The looser the better! I love these kimonos because they all offer something different that would fit for anybody’s wardrobe including mine!
This weekend I spent my lovely memorial day at Ulta anddddd a BBQ, but the BBQ is for another day! Anyhow I got some great goodies at Ulta as I do always and in fact I actually used money from a return I made at Sephora. Even though I did make a return I do have to give Sephora some credit. I bought the benefit primer and it started to make my skin break out. I realized that my face was extremely oily and it was because I was using my Clinique 3 step system( that includes a moisturizer) and then adding primer on my face as well. Big NO NO. It caused my skin to be overly oily and I instantly broke out. I returned the primer; used and in a broken box( I had only used it twice). I had my receipt and they gave me a full refund; in cash I might add with no questions asked. I then used that money to go to Ulta and bought some different beauty products. Here is what I got!
I’ve been tall my whole life. I awkwardly hovered over all my friends, people were endlessly jealous of my long legs and my super power ability to reach anything and everything. People always say “wear yo height girlllll”, or “omg your legs are too die for”. Since I can remember I haven’t quite embraced my tallness (if that’s even a word); but every now and then a trend comes along that makes me grateful for the 5 foot 8 inches that I was blessed with. I crave a good maxi dress (we’ve been buddies for quite some time now). Maxis are perfect for those days you don’t want to wear jeans/shorts or my all time fav-when you want to wear a dress but realize you forgot to shave (it happens). They are super versatile; coming in all sorts of fabrics, some that are more casual and others that are a little dressy. You can wear them to a wedding or to the grocery store and it also transitions well with the seasons (add a blazer or jean jacket for days that are cooler). Here are a few looks I love!
I have this obssesion with lipstick, preferably matte; which can often be a little tricky. Even if you have the perfect moisturizer, matte lipsticks can still look runny and make your lips peel if you dont exfoliate properly. I have tried a lip scrub(fresh sugar scrub from sephora), but something still felt off with it. I would rub my lips together but it just didnt seem like they were being exfoliated the way they should be. So when I saw this lip exfoliator brush I was thrilled! Im a little bummed its $50; that seems a little expensive for a lip brush; but none the less this is still what I was looking for.
