Take a look inside my vinyl collection 

I’ve been collecting vinyls for a while and they are my favorite things to listen to and look at. Here are some of my favorites from my collection:

 

Pink Floyd, definitely a classic.
This is my favorite Fleetwood Mac album, I just love the rustic sound.

I grew up on Sting and the Police so this album stirs up a lot of great childhood memories.

Halsey’s Badlands is one of my more recent purchases and it’s definitely one of my favorites.
 

I love the pink marble color for Halsey’s vinyl.
This is another one of my recent purchases. I’ve been looking for a Glass Animal’s Zaba vinyl for a while and I found one at my local record shop.

I love Lana del Rey’s Honeymoon vinyl. Her picture book is pure art.

This Hundred Waters vinyl is one of my favorites. It’s really unique hearing electronic music on a record player. The cover art is absolutely amazing. The front is a sunrise and the back is a sunset.

Photoshoot with Lindsey (Camera Linds Photography)

I’m so excited to share these photos with you guys! Lindsey is super creative and that’s why I think she’s such a great photographer (one of the best I know). She wanted this shoot to be very bohemian based and of course, that’s right up my alley so of course I was interested! Lindsey found this great idea called flower tattoos which we tried and they turned out beautifully! I’ll be posting a how to for those very soon so stay posted. So if you love these photos, please check out Lindsey’s other work on her website: Camera Linds Photography and her instagram: @lindseyremy ❤️

 

I’m still obsessed with these flower tattoos, can’t wait to show you guys how we did it!
 
 
Love this one, took a couple tries, but turned out beautifully.

 
The candids are my favorites ❤️
 
 
You can only see one deer here, but there was a small pack. They were so close!
 
 

  

Probably my favorite. I love that you can see my henna!

Shopping online done easy – affordable and just in time for spring!

  Me when I’m waiting for a package! lol 

Anytime I shop online, the first thing I look for — before even looking at the products is promotions. Promotions can really make your purchase cheaper, sometimes all you have to do is enter a code or your email when you check out! 

The next thing I look for is a “sale” page. Most people avoid it because they think the clothing is not as up to date as other pages like “newest releases.” Well, the “sale” page is how you save money. Many sale pages for clothing websites have products from the last newest release line which means it’s only less than a month old! Which means it’s still stylish! Yes, it’s possible to find something really ridiculous and very out of date in the sales pages, but don’t let it discourage you from getting a great, cute deal. 

So what I did was “shopped” for you. I shopped from 3 different online stores: forever21, charlotte russe, and h&m. All the items I chose are affordable and make great outfits. Enjoy!

Get the spring look: Dos and Don’ts

I’m so happy it’s spring. You know what that means? Bright colors, new hair, flowers. Those who fell into the winter and fall trance of matte dark lipsticks, dark colored eyeshadow and pale skin — fear no more, it’s time to get bold. 

Please do: 

  • Get out that bold red lipstick. Might as well pull out your pinks and corals  too. Sephora’s liquid lipstick has some of the brightest spring colors around.
  • Shop spring lines. Forever 21 and Kendall and Kylie’s line are affordable and bring out the latest and most stylish spring trends.
  • Try a new hair color. If you’re feeling bold enough, go blonde, pink, or even try grey like me! 
  • Paint your nails. Use yellows, pastel pinks, whites, greys and coffee colored polishes. These are the most popular colors this spring.
  • Use bright colored eyeshadow. I’m not the only one who’s been not using certain colors on my palette. This spring is the perfect time to experiment with some brighter colors. Blue and gold have been popular bright colors, try them out. You’ll be shocked!
  • Moisturize. The weather’s getting warmer, make sure you have a good face lotion. Also, oil serums have been trending. I use Korres Rose Brightening oil serum to even and brighten my skin. I just mix it with my foundation and my face feels hydrated.
  • Hike, go for a walk. It’s the perfect weather to do so. Breathe in the freshest air of spring, it’s good for you!

Please Don’t: 

  • Over do makeup. Yes, bright colors are in this spring, but if you use a bold lip color and eyeshadow and do heavy highlighter, that’s not as in. Try using a bold lip and light eye makeup or a bold eye and a nude rosey or mauve colored lipstick.
  • Spend all your time inside. Watch the flowers bloom, take a nap under the trees, make flower tattoos. Pinterest has some great spring activites and crafts, I’ll let you google “how to make flower tattoos” yourself, they’re sweet.

Need a brightening and tightening face mask? Found the perfect one:

If you know me, you know I love face masks. I love trying new ones all the time! Well, my friend recommended I try TonyMoly’s egg pore masks. This friend is obsessed with a lot of Korean beauty products and said TonyMoly does wonders. I’ve tried TonyMoly’s sheet masks for brightening from Urban Outfitters and it was hydrating and so refreshing. I decided to order one off Amazon.  

 First of all, how cute is this packaging? Just adorable! 

 On the inside is the actual mask. The consistency is really interesting. It looks like clay, but feels sort of like a light, whipped merengue. Going on the face, it’s smooth and spreads easily. You can either apply it all over your face or apply it to trouble spots. I used it all over my face and let it dry for 20 minutes and then wiped it off with a warm wash rag.

I’ve used it about 3 times a week for about a month now and I already see results. Others have noticed it too. After application, my skin feels soft and firm. After waiting for the redness to go away from the warm washrag, my skin tone looks bright just after the first application! If that is not miracle work, I don’t know what is!

4.9 out of 5

  • Easily applied
  • Cute packaging
  • Affordable (less than $10 on Amazon)
  • Quick results, noticeable after first couple applications
  • Refreshing and cooling

For your inner creativeness a Lip Gloss set Must-Have: Sephora + Pantone Universe Watercolors

  
If you’re a color person you’ll love this set! I will warn you: the colors are not as pigmented as they look in their bottles as it is a WATERCOLOR set (meaning the colors are light and watery — like the paints). I really like this set because I don’t wear a lot of crazy colors and because these colors are lighter than normal, it let’s me get away with it. The pigment and consistency is really great! It goes on well, nice and even. It’s quality gloss, people. 

 The blue is my personal favorite! 
  I really like this reddish pink one too. This would be more practical for an everyday look.  

 I was surprised by the orange. It actually looks great! Reminds me of a guava pink and very light orange color. 

  This one had me a little uneasy. I feel like it would look great on somebody, but not me! I could see someone doing a creative look with it though. 
  And this is the purple one. I was really impressed by this color, it’s actually really nice looking! Anyone could pull this off! 
So you may have noticed that I did not include a picture of the yellow gloss. Well, it didn’t really work out because, well, it just was not feeling my lips and it’s not very pigmented.

3.9 out of 5 

  • Great colors, goes on smooth
  • Creative idea
  • A little deceiving
  • It’s on sale now at Sephora and online!
