Monthly Favorites: March

I can't believe that the end of March is already here. You know what that means, another monthly favorites post. Although I don't have a ton of products to show you this month I think the ones I have are really good products to try, and there is a nice array of types of products.


Eyes: Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express Mascara: ($11.50)
What I like about this: I've been recently really loving the way Kylie Jenner has her eyelashes, I find that this mascara has really helped me achieve her long lash look. 

Face: Milani Baked Blush in 'Berry Amore 03': ($7.99)
What I like about this: These baked blushes are not only gorgeous colors but also beautifully pigmented. The gold mixed into the berry color creates such a beautiful effect on the skin. 

Fashion: Victoria's Secret PINK Lace Bralette: ($25.00)
What I like about this: These bralettes are seriously the most comfortable things ever. Not only do they look supper cute under a loose tank top they are perfect for a lazy day at home, when you can't force yourself to stick on a bra. 

Skin Care: Simple Foaming Cleanser: ($6.99)
What I like about this: I find a lot of face cleanser don't really feel like they are removing all my face makeup off, with this foaming cleanser I can really feel a difference and it leaves my face feeling really clean.

Movie: Disney's Frozen Blue-Ray Combo Pack: ($29.99)
What I like about this: Frozen has been my absolute favorite thing in general this month, I can't get enough of it and the songs. I had to buy the movie so I can watch it when ever I want. Seriously though Elsa is just beyond perfect, and can anyone tell me where I can get an Olaf of my own?

Decor: Pretty Little Style

Heyo, I'm back today with another post! Wow it's my 40th post yay! So for that I have decided today will be my first official decor post. I want to show you how to achieve that pretty pastel room decor that has been so popular lately. I've been loving the look of lace like, white, a roses all mixed together in one.

My own decor items

This photo above is of a few of my favorite decor items I have in my room on a shelf. As you can see my walls are painted a soothing grey color. My first tip to achieve this look is to keep your wall color very neutral. Either a white, off white in any color, cream or light grey, this will help set the base for your room making it feel like and airy. Now I know many people have wood furniture that isn't white, and although having white furniture is ideal, you'll see that my shelf is wood and not painted white. I know it pretty pricy to get new furniture for your room so you can either sand down your furniture and paint it white, or just stick to what you have. I've just left my furniture au natural. It's all about how you dress it up, using light colored bedding is another key factor this will help stick with that light and rosy feeling. On my bed I currently have dark grey bedding but I have put a light pink blanket on my bed and cream crochet throw on it as well to kind of hid the dark grey. Also having white accent pillows help a lot when wanting to keep with this girly theme. When purchasing frames and decor pieces for your room stick to all white and it will keep the theme going throughout your room. 

What pieces are in the picture above?:

The bird cage t-light holder can be easily found in places like Michael's and practically any other store that carry decor items.

The two white pots are from Ikea, the larger one is a plant pot while the smaller one with the triangular edges is actually a candle holder.

The pink fake flower are just from Wallmart but you can find these at practically any craft store.

Must Have: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

Alright! So I haven't been on top of making new posts, but once this month is over I should hopefully be posting at least twice a week. Today's post is dedicated to one my most, if not my most favorite beauty product of all time. That my friends is Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion in 'Original'.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion: Original 

I am huge fan of eyeshadows and different types of eyeliners, but I always found they would run off or even worse crease. I was recommended to try this product and boy did this little magic potion change my life. I can go all day wearing a smoky eye and if I use this primer first it will last until the wee hours of morning. A lot of people don't even think about using a primer, especially on their eyelids, I know for the longest time I didn't. But now since I've used this it has become a regular step in my makeup process. I honestly recommend this to anyone who either hasn't used an eyeshadow primer before or is currently unhappy with the one they have. Heck even if you are happy with the one you have give this one a shot because I'm pretty sure it will become your new favorite too.

Price: $14.00 


Isododecane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Polyethylene, Trihydroxystearin, Triethylhexanoin, Isopropyl Lanolate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, VP/Eicosene Copolymer, Dimethicone, PEG-40 Stearate, Propylene Carbonate, Phenoxyethanol, Synthetic Beeswax, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben.

**PS. Sorry about the bad quality photo lighting is not on my side today.
