Makeup Must Haves

Lately I have been really into watching makeup tutorials on youtube. My favorites are from Raychel Wade. After scouring through different videos, I made a list of all the products that I felt I MUST have (please note I don't NEED anything). After my makeup shopping spree, I am now broke. But my makeup collection has doubled and I look and feel pretty damn good. Check my must haves list below.

Fabulous on a Budget

Lately I've been feeling the pangs of my bank account dipping lower and lower with my love of shopping. Especially with the Summer and warm weather rapidly approaching, I find that all I want to do is shop shop shop. This post is for all of you who are like me, and want to find fashionable items for reasonable (sometimes more than reasonable) prices! Places that used to have a stigma of being "gross" or "cheap" are now becoming as hip and stylish your most frequented boutiques. Places like Old Navy and Target have been climbing higher and high in the "trendy" zone, which makes our closets and our wallets VERY happy. Check out some of my finds for a budget below!

PS. When ordering online, ALWAYS remember to check for online coupons. Sites like are great ways to get even more of a discount.

My top picks for Mothers Day gifts

With Mothers Day just about a week away, here are some of my picks for great gifts this year. You can expect lots of bright oranges, reds/pinks and greens to be everywhere this summer, continuing the color blocking and floral trends of spring. These would all make great gifts for your mom this year, or maybe even a little pre-summer gift for yourself!
