It makes me super happy that it is finally feeling like May weather wise and because of this, my sister and I decided to make some fruit Popsicle's yesterday! We cut up and used blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, grapes, watermelon and tangerines and then for the base made two with Sprite, two with regular coconut water and two with pineapple coconut water; they turned out great!! They were super fun and easy to make and are a healthier option than buying Popsicle's at the store which can be loaded with sugar. I took some pictures to show you because I think they look super cool! Enjoy!
Hello! Today I thought I would talk about my current favorite items in my wardrobe and makeup bag, I hope you enjoy!
1: MOTO Black Ripped Jamie Jeans- TOPSHOP
I got these jeans last month and I absolutely love them, I really wanted a pair of ripped black jeans and have not owned a pair of black denim since high school so I was really excited when I found these! I like that they are a high rise denim and they are so comfortable. I wear these ALL the time because they go with just about everything! If ever you are looking for a pair of ripped denim, I recommend checking out TOPSHOP, they have a HUGE selection of different colors and styles!
2. Sleeveless Ponte Jacket-TOPSHOP
As you can probably tell, I have been shopping at TOPSHOP a lot lately! This vest has quickly become one of my favorite things in my closet. I really like that it is longer and I also like that it is more of a "boyfriend" fit, but is still is tailored enough not to make you look boxy. I really like wearing this when I go out with a darker denim, a black tank and boots.
3. Iconic-House of Lashes
I am not being dramatic when I say that these have changed my life and also the way I feel about makeup. As I talked about in my December Favorites post, I am fairly new to putting on false lashes so I did some research and found out about House of Lashes and I do not think I'll buy drugstore lashes again. What I really like about this company is that even though they are based in California they ship to you on the day you order and it gets to you within a week. The Iconic lashes in particular are my favorite out of the ones that I have tried because I like that they are more dramatic but still look natural depending on what makeup I choose to wear. I cannot recommend these enough and if you are looking to try false lashes, you must try these!!!!
4. Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer-Marc Jacobs Beauty
This eyeliner is another long time favorite of mine and since purchasing this, I have not used other eyeliners. I have never been able to apply liquid eyeliner without getting frustrated and getting it ALL over my face so I have always used a pencil; what is so awesome about this eyeliner is that it is in a pencil but goes on like a liquid liner and it is super easy to do a cat eye. I haven't tried any color other than the black, but they have 25 different colors if black is not your thing!
5. Lip Gloss in Orgasm-NARS
I am pretty sure that most girls have owned this lip gloss at some point in their lives and if not, have definitely tried it. What is so great about it though is that it does not disappoint and for me has always been something that I gravitate towards when I am putting on my makeup. Don't get me wrong, I love a red lip but it is not always practical and this lip gloss literally goes with everything and will continue to be a favorite of mine!
I am looking to try some new lip glosses and lipsticks because I tend to always buy NARS lip products, what are some of your favorites?
It is hard to believe that I have been writing on my blog for a year already, this past year has flown by! I have come a long way since my first blog post and I have learned a lot about myself. This past year I have tried new things,gone on a few adventures and embraced positive situations by making changes in my life and it has been quite the ride!!
The support I have received from my family, friends and occasional stranger has been amazing; it means a lot to me that you take the time to read my ramblings and have such motivating and positive feedback about whatever I choose to write about, I appreciate it more than you know! Thank you for allowing me to have a creative outlet and for your continued support!
Like so many others, change is something that at times I have had trouble dealing with; it can be very intimidating. A lot of this has to do with my personality in general and past experiences I have had.
As many of you know, I have been really trying to do things that push me out of my comfort zone and while it is an ongoing work in progress, when I look back at the person that I was when I wrote down what I wanted to accomplish at the beginning of 2014 to the person I am today, it is funny how significantly I have changed. The girl in January 2014 was someone who was scared of the future, who didn't know what she truly wanted in a relationship because of the unhealthy nature of the one she had previously been in and someone who was terrified to experience new things in fear that she would look silly or get judged by others; since then my outlook on all of these things is different and continues to change. It is still hard at times to express these things out loud (it is MUCH easier to write about it!!), but I am finding it way more manageable to take in the changes that have happened in my life recently and to embrace the changes that I plan on making in the future because I have a much better sense of who I am and what I want.
Change does not need to be intimidating and I am looking forward to seeing what the changes in my life will be and where they take me. Just some food for thought.
