Everyday Pampering

Ok, so you’re usually used to seeing posts about clothes, but lately I’ve been a tad bit obsessed with makeup so I thought eh, why not? So here it is; a makeup post from yours truly. Now it’s nothing too special just a bit of what I put on my face and some of my favorite products, you know the usual.

So Benefit has become my new best friend. Their products are lifesavers and work magic. The contouring products have shaped my face like crazy and the paleness of my face has been concealed after 17 years.

So getting into skin and hair. Tarte’s amazonian clay foundation is amazing and the coverage is beyond. I’ve heard people rave about this for years and I’ve been using it now for about a year and I couldn’t be happier. Next up, St. Tropez. What would I do without you? The mousse gives me this natural glow that sadly takes tanning oil and hours in the sun for me to achieve (which frankly I don’t have time for) so this product actually saved my life. Moving on to hair, Argan oil and dry shampoo; probably the two basics when it comes to haircare. The Argan oil leaves my hair so smooth and silky it’s like I’ve stolen someone else’s and the dry shampoo, ah! it works wonders. That’s all I can say.

Alright lastly, just some extras I could throw in. The Mac Twig color is my new obsession and the lip balm I use is an amazing base. You see that healing balm next to it? Yeah. Greatest. Thing. Ever. I had no idea what it was when my mom introduced it to me but it’s literally a thick balm that smooths out dry skin and cuts. It may not smell like freshly cut flowers but it does the job so well. Lastly, the all too famous real techniques brush. This has honestly become my favorite thing because I no longer have to rely on my hands to blend anything EVER AGAIN. If I kept going I would have wrinkles at age 25 from how much i pulled my skin applying foundation. This brush is so soft, blends perfectly and looks really cute next to your other makeup brushes (just saying).

So today marks another year older. I’m 17, one year closer to 18. whoo! So today has been going great and I decided to snap some photos courtesy of the best mom. Then we went out for brunch where I had Nutella stuffed french toast, holy crap was it good! Overall it’s been great being 17!

The shirt I’m wearing is from H&M, the pants are from a boutique in Madrid and the shoes are my absolute new obsession from Mango!

Weekend wonders

Hey! So this is going to be a compialation of what I did this weekend! So friday I spent the day with friends at a coffee shop to study for dreadful AP’s. (wasn’t fun) Then we saw a play at my school for Rent which might I say was very good!  

     

Come saturday I had a busy schedule all day and was barely home ( hence the lack of photos). But it’s Sunday now and it’s Mother’s Day so happy matthers day to all the beautiful mommys including mine! Today was a day full of essay writing, picture taking,  and listening to mikky ekko (my new obsession) I might just have to do a blog post about him only. His music is brilliant, a mix between indie and pop. He sings with so much soul and passion that truly resonates in you. Anyway, that was my weekend in a nutshell and I’ll be back tomorrow!

Hey Guys! How are you all? So today I spent the day in the city yet again to catch up with my two best friends and chill and spend time with our friend for her birthday. We went to Two Hands and then explored Soho and found the perfect stairs to take pictures. It was actually really cold so we had to break out our jackets but nonetheless we had a sick time!
