Anyone who knows me well knows that I have an unhealthy
obsession love with Rupert Grint. I honestly don’t know where it came from but I can’t help but drool a little or get overly excited when I hear his name. I mean look at that face, I can’t resist.
I tend to google and read articles to see where my favorite Potter actors are or what they are doing. This is when I found out about his new comedy Super Clyde was rejected by CBS. I was bummed…like..really really bummed. It seemed like he was one of the best actors in Potter but he wasn’t find much success in the big or little screen. Well, CBS, I think you made a grave mistake.
Hello Spices! I hope your school year has started off well. I thought it would be fun for you all to catch a glimpse of what kind of classes I have to take and maybe, who knows, you would like to take something similar in your own university if it offers it!
New York Fashion Week kicked off last week and I have been watching the multitude of designs strut down the runway with bated breath. There are plenty of designers that have caught my eye and my heart, but the one who stole it was Tadashi Shoji. He was by far the most different from the others. I absolutely loved the surprise plaid in his designs. Plaid? In the spring? Unheard of.
Every high schoolers dream is to move out of their house and live on their own. The best way to get the taste of the independent life? Dorming. However, it is not the end of the world if you do not dorm whether it is your choice or not. Many students tend to stay home and commute. I am one of those. I did not choose this upon myself. My family is not very religious but when it comes to dorming or sleeping over and things like that, they have a firm say. I did not argue and I honestly don’t feel like I miss out on too much. Here are some pros to commuting instead of dorming.
It never ceases to amaze me to see stripes nearly every season. I am a sucker for stripes. Every time I walk into a store, I find myself gravitating towards a mound of striped shirts. I am a moth to a light bulb. They go with pretty much anything and they really are what I consider, a basic.
Hello, Spice Girls & Guys!
I’ve decided to write a blog post inspired by my favorite musician of all time: Ed Sheeran. I know I’ve written about him but I just wanted to just dedicate post all about him.
I feel like this blog is taking a turn into beauty, but it’s ok, beauty is a part of fashion and I do intend to try to do more outfits when I find a partner to take photos. This is easier to do as I do not need anything special or someone else to take the photos. I love seeing what is in everyone else’s makeup bags or is part of their routine so I figured i would do one as well. These are the items I use religiously, I may use some one day or omit them another. I have a lot more items but these are the ones I find myself reaching for time and time again.
Urban Decay: All Nighter
This makeup setting spray is both refreshing and effective. I used this going to an Ed Sheeran concert in October. I sprayed it onto my face after I finished applying my makeup and spent 2 hours outside and then 3 1/2 sweating and dancing. When I took a picture of myself with my friend at the concert, I was surprised to see my face did not have one bead of sweat on it. It did not glisten with oil or have any makeup running down my face. It lasted for those 6 hours and more. It’s amazing. I will continue using it and I know this will be great for the hot summer months. Not only will it keep my makeup set, but it will offer some relief against the hot sun.
bareMinerals Original Foundation, Mineral Viel, & “Warmth”: I am a simple girl and I like simple makeup. Sometimes, I just swipe the trio on and I am left fresh-faced and blemish free. It gives me great coverage without looking heavy or looking like I am even wearing makeup. It offers a great canvas to actually go wild with your makeup.
Origins: GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream: I have terrible, dreadful dark circles thanks to my workaholic nature and heredity. I swipe some of this underneath my eyes in the morning to give me more of a wide awake look. The key is the light reflecting shimmer. It helps brighten your eyes and you could also swipe some on before you head to bed. It’s not going to make your circles disappear but it helps me look more alive and attentive when I am out or working.
Per-fekt Brow Perfection Gel & Tarte emphasEYES liner: I keep my brows tidy by threading but when a week or two pass, the unruly hairs return. To keep the perfectly set and bold brows, I swipe on some of the brow perfection brow. It has a mascara brush so it’s easy to use and you could easily control how bold you want them. The emphasEYES liner is also something I use when I want to brighten up my eyes. The nude color glides on your lower waterline and makes your eyes look bigger and wide awake. I also put some on the inner corner of my eyes to get the full effect.
Boscia B.B Cream: Yes, there is a C.C cream now but I am enjoying my time with this. I wear this every day without fail. If I don’t feel like doing any makeup I dot this all over my face and put 2 dots on my dark circles and set it in with a circular motion. It leaves my skin with a beautiful glow, less noticeable dark circles, and with nearly any imperfections. The best part? The SPF. It will be a life saver in the summer and might even try their B.B. Cream with bronzer.
Lancome Hypnose Doll mascara: You can never go wrong with a swipe of mascara. I already have naturally long eyelashes so I don’t really need a lot. I do like putting mascara on to make sure it curls up and to give it more emphasis. I like Lancome’s mascara because it doesn’t clump. I’m nearing the end of this one and I will be sure to try some new ones but until then, I will continue using this one.
Sugarbomb by Benefit: I usually have trouble finding anything that matches my skintone–simply because I don’t really know what to classify my skin tone as and there is an overwhelming variety of choices. I strode into my local Ulta and one of the employees helped me choose this. This is my go to blush and one I use all the time. I love mixing all the colors or using them individually. It has a sweet and delicate scent to it as well. It isn’t shimmery at all and I find that it adds a warm glow to my face.
Clinique Even Better Concealer in Hazelnut: I swear, I think I need to just get some new skin underneath my eyes. They aren’t bad, ok yes, they are horrible. I need all the product I can use underneath my poor eyes. I also have trouble picking out the perfect concealer so I had asked one of the women at Sephora. She used this and I liked how it looked. I only see it make a huge difference when I use both B.B Cream AND concealer. If I just use concealer, I feel like it doesn’t have enough coverage.
Sugar by Fresh: I am utterly obsessed with Fresh. They’re items smell AMAZING. I have a collection of these bad boys thanks to Sephora always gifting two minis around my birthday. I have this one and the tinted rose one. They both offer the same lemony fresh scent and always leave my super dry lips feeling smooth and rejuvenated. I will most likely be buying a lot more from Fresh and a full size lip balm when I finish.
