Pink Skies Up Ahead / / Current Favorites

June 25, 2017

Another favorites coming at you guys! These past couple of weeks have been so crazy! I started a new job and also I've been getting ready for my trip to New York and my mind is just all over the place. But through all the chaos I still managed to pull through and find the time to gather up some of the things that I've been loving recently. 

  1. Lush Cosmetic Warrior Mask $8.95: You can never go wrong with the masks and Lush. I love that majority of them are Vegan and Cruelty-Free! I've been having a lot of trouble with my skin lately. I've been getting a lot of break outs and the overall texture just has not been flattering. So when I was out shopping for a mask, the associate at Lush recommended this to me and I swear this was a life saver! The smell is a little overbearing at first because the two main ingredients are tea tree oil and ginger, but you adapt to it and it's not so bad. I would use this mask right after I hop out of the shower, so my pores would be open and the mask would absorb into my skin better. Not to mention it feels great against your hot skin since this mask has to be refrigerated, so applying something cold right after the shower just feels heavenly. I'd leave it on for about 20-25 minutes and my skin would feel and look so refreshed and clarified. It helped calm down my skin so much and it's already on my list of things I need to repurchase! 
  2. Milk Makeup Lip and Cheek in "Perk" + Milk Makeup Bronzer in "Baked" $24 each : I was never a person to wear blush because my skin already suffered from a lot of natural redness, so I wanted to make sure my face was always "cooled down," if that makes any sense. But I got my hands on a mini-sized lip and cheek product from Milk Makeup and it ended up being a part of my everyday makeup routine! I used to be reluctant to wear blush because I was always using too much and ended up looking sunburned, but with this a little goes a long way! The color is perfect for that healthy glow 
  3. Anastasia Brow Wiz in Granite $21: I know, I super late to the game with this product and I seriously don't know why it took me so long to finally come around and try this out. My brows have seriously never looked better ever since I used this. And the color matches my brows perfectly! I don't want to ramble too much about this product because I'm sure all of you out there have already heard about this and how much of a game changer it is for brows. This is perfect for those who have brows, but find themselves with some sparser areas that just need a quick fill in. 
  4. Forever 21 Faux Leather Sandals: I have been on the hunt for a pair of sandals that I could quickly slip in and out of when I'm in a rush. My other slide sandals got ruined because I left them out in the rain, so it was time to find a replacement pair. I found these strappy ones at Forever 21 and got them for 30% off! I like that they can be dressed up or down and were super inexpensive! 
  5. Bando Planner // Pink Skies Up Ahead Print // Not Without My Coffee Tee: So I decided to keep these three together because they're all from Shop Bando, and I am absolutely in love with all that I got from them. I have been wanting one of their planners for the absolute longest, and I felt it was time that I get one, especially since I'm finishing up with my current planner. I have always been the type of person who needs to write things down. This planner is so much fun because of all the cool illustrations and quirky little quotes throughout the pages. // The "Pink Skies Up Ahead" print was something I instantly fell in love with and just had to have it. My favorite time of the day is both sunrise and sunset because that's when the skies start to turn this pink and orange color, and it's just so calming. So to have this hanging up in my wall and reading the saying just puts me at ease. // The "Not Without My Coffee" T-shirt is exactly how I feel every morning when I have to get up for work. I have a love-hate relationship with coffee because I love drinking it but hate how dependent I can be on it. This shirt is perfect for days where you just wanna lounge around the house and watch Netflix all day or for just a casual night out!  
  6. The Boss Baby: I watched this movie the other day with my little brother and mom, and I was delightfully surprised at how much I actually enjoyed it. The preview didn't win me over, and I didn't really expect much from the movie, but I found myself genuinely liking it. It's a great movie for family night! And I admit, it had me going through baby fever for a little bit. Overall super creative plot, although most people would say the ending was kind of predictable. But I love how the main character, Timmy, is super creative and imaginative, and the Boss Baby is just so adorable in his little suit. 
  7. Charlie Puth "Attention": Low-Key a big fan of Charlie Puth, and his current song has my undivided attention. I have probably listened to it on repeat for days straight and I'm still not tired of it. It's super catchy and I can't help but sing along to it. 
  8. Drybar Detox Dry Conditioner: If you're someone like me that has super dry and coarse hair, and also prefers to not wash their hair every day, then dry shampoo is probably one of your best friends. BUT dry shampoo doesn't really come in handy when your ends are dry, sure it helps draw out the extra oils in your scalp but that's about it. So what do you do? Use a dry conditioner of course! I don't know why it hasn't dawned on me sooner that there was such a thing! I was introduced to this product when watching Melissa Alatore's Snapchat story, and she mentioned this! I love how soft my hair feels after I wash and condition it, but again I am one of those people who don't wash their hair every day, but I can get that same "just washed my hair" softness by spritzing this into my ends and voila! Freshly "conditioned" hair. 
  9. Muji House Instagram: An Instagram account that I cannot stop creeping on is Muji House. This feed is basically all I want for my future home to be. It's super minimal and clean looking and I get so much inspiration from them. If you want to give them a follow go check out their Instagram account @mujihouse!

And that is what I have been into lately! Beyond thrilled to be leaving for New York tomorrow, It's been over three months since I last saw Anthony and it has been killing me. I almost even forgot that I had a boyfriend for a moment, I'm just so used to seeing him through FaceTime that it's weird to think that he's an actual physical-being. We are celebrating out three year anniversary and we're going to see John Legend! Fun things ahead and I can't wait, and seriously already don't want it to end. Of course I will be vlogging and blogging the trip so stay tuned for all that! Hopefully will be getting a new laptop soon, so I can edit my vlogs better (or not, who knows. I have some faith in myself haha)
