Spring Beauty Favorites

About a year ago, I did a post about my favorite beauty products. Well, a lot has changed since then, not only have I turned twenty, which in my head makes me a "little more adult", but I've also started living on my own. So here's what's new on my must-haves list.

1. A Good Fragrance
Personally, I never feel like a good outfit is complete unless I add a few dabs of my favorite fragrance. The scent I wear changes almost daily as I tend to reserve certain scents for "certain moods." For Christmas I received, Chanel No. 5 so when I'm feeling in need of a burst of confidence or am going somewhere special I'll opt for that. Ideally, it'd be my everyday fragrance, but as a college girl who's #ballingonabudget, we're not there yet. I've linked three perfumes at a variety of price points if you're looking for a new scent!

2. An Everyday Lip Color

Okay, this one isn't necessarily new. I've always sworn by lip balms and lipsticks, but recently I've kicked it up a notch. Lately, I've been wearing red lipstick a ton, and not just for special occasions. I'm not sure why I perpetuated the myth that you couldn't wear a red lip casually, but I've definitely stopped subscribing to that idea. It does take a little confidence, but I'm a big fan of throwing on a red lip with a t-shirt and jeans combo. Something about it really elevates the looks and makes me feel a little bit more sophisticated. Here are some of my current favorite red shades.

3. Brow Gel

Though this one is pictured above, I swear by a good brow gel. As someone with naturally sparse eyebrows, it's the one thing I almost never leave the house without. I've used a couple different ones in the past year or so, and personally, I think they all work about the same, so it isn't something I ever plan on spending a ton of money on. But I've linked a couple I really like below!

And there you have it, my top three beauty favorites for spring. Hopefully, you liked this new format I'm trying where I give categories instead of one specific product! As always I'd love any feedback below. 

Until Next Time,

Steal Her Style, Meghan Markle

For my friends and family, it's no secret how obsessed I am with Meghan Markle. I'm a sucker for the girl meets boy and becomes a princess story, and her style is impeccable. So much so that I often cite her as one of my biggest style inspirations.

But since I do not have a royal stylist, and am #ballingonabudget(because you know, college ) I'm showing you how to get some royal looks on a commoner budget.

Look Number One: So Meghan wore this outfit on her recent Australian tour with Harry. Blazers are super trendy right now, and this look would be perfect to recreate for a dressier brunch or a day at your internship. And the icing on the cake? It's super simple to achieve. I've linked three super affordable dupes for each item below!

New Year, New Me

Well, not quite. 2018 was one of the most trying, invigorating, and absolutely wonderful years of my life. But I'm so excited for all of the things in store. I've got some really amazing ideas for content, I'm in the beginning stages of planning some amazing trips and have even got a couple of New Years' Resolutions.
