Weekend Beauty: Viva Glam Rihanna 2

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Happy Sunday beauties! It’s late but I’m finally débuting my newest makeup obsession. Last week I posted on Instagram about how the Mr. went creeping on my Nordstrom wish list and got me Rihanna’s Viva Glam 2 lipstick and lipglass. When I got the package at work…. *faints*. Yes it was that real.  This lipstick is such a unique color I wasn’t sure how it’d look but just knew I wanted it. I mean the packaging alone is worth it!

Reflections: Beaches + Birthdays

Can’t believe it’s been a year already. It seems like only last week I was posting about turning 26 and yet here I am at 27. This year has seriously flown by. When you’re caught up in the day to day it’s easy to lose sight of the progress, the journey. But when I really think about it…I’ve accomplished so much during my 26th year of life. It feels good and a little surreal that I’m really in my late twenties. For real this time, like I can’t even pretend anymore.

Summer Beauty: Skincare Regimen

When it comes to this beauty thing, it’s easy to blog endlessly about the newest lipstick or favorite bronzer or which foundation I’m loving at the moment (because it’s forever changing). But I know for me, one thing that I tend to overlook here on the blog is the importance of caring for your skin. I’ll be honest though,  and I’m no professional, but I’ve watched my fair share of YouTube videos where the skin care routine is literally 50 million steps and I’m just O_O yea, no. Ain’t nobody got time for that. But some type of skincare regimen is important. Especially in the summer when you’re out in the sun, beach, oily, sweaty and…you get the picture.

Keep Going

TGIF. For real. The first week back after a holiday is always sooo long. I’m glad the weekend is here. Not that I’ll be doing much relaxing but a girl can dream. This week was definitely an inspiration when it comes to blogging. I found some awesome new blogs, learned a lot, and definitely refocused after listening to a super motivating podcast by Myleik. You should need to check it out. We have the same mantra. Keep Going. It’s on my vision board and errthing. Here are some more links I’m loving this week.
