Hello my honeys! I have missed you all dearly. Although it’s been a while since I’ve written a post, I have been uploading to my Youtube channel pretty regularly and I also had my first Denver pop up shop! I promise I am always working on this brand in some form… Even if it’s just racking my brain with too many ideas to handle.
I wasn’t sure whether to make this concept into a video or a blog post. After assessing my smudged makeup and greasy topknot, I decided blog post it was! I will be sharing all of my current favs from makeup to fashion to food. This is your ultimate guide to the best of the best this season.
Okay, so this is nothing new in my routine, but I wanted to emphasize my love for the Maybelline Superstay foundation. I have bought countless bottles of this stuff, using a few lighter coverage options on my off days but mostly sticking to this. I had been using it for so long that I wanted to try something new and picked up a Benefit cosmetics foundation for triple the price. A week later I returned the benefit one and stuck with my OG, being reminded just how good it is. The staying power is unmatched, the coverage is amazing, and it doesn’t break me out. Love.
THESE BOOTS. Omg, they’re from Nasty Gal as you can see and I copped them for $40 since they always run sales. I have worn these nearly everyday since I got them and I love the edge they add to every outfit. They have quickly become a staple and I definitely recommend them if you’re on the hunt for a go-to black boot.
Gold jewelry is a constant for me, but gold chain necklaces have been everything lately. They look so cool but it’s still classic. I think they bring out my inner hoodrat and honestly I couldn’t be more pleased, lmao.
My last fashion fav is leather pants. I have two different pairs, one is a shiny, textured leather from XLE.com and one is a classic smooth leather from Zara. Both are a straight leg fit which makes them super on trend. I find that they pair with so much and can turn a basic outfit into a bad bitch outfit. Big fan.
You guys!!! I have found my new favorite recipe of all time. I take about a 6 inch piece of sourdough baguette and cut it in half the long way, spread Brie cheese over one side and Trader Joe’s vegan kale cashew pesto over the other side. Toast that in oven for about 8 minutes and cook up some seasoned chicken breast (fake chicken for me). Take the bread out and add the chicken slices, a few tomato slices, and a tiny bit of mayo for the most delicious sandwich you’ll ever eat. Thank me later.
Ugh, I don’t even want to talk about Playboi Carti. He did us dirty by not dropping his new album Whole Lotta Red on time so in the mean time, I’ve recently discovered a rapper that goes by Father and I really like his music. Ive had my favorite songs by him on repeat for the last couple months along with my typical lineup of Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Smino (highly recommend if you don’t already listen to him), A$AP Mob, and some BROCKHAMPTON here and there as well. Music isn’t super interesting at the moment but I do have to say that hip hop has been a huge crutch for me during this big transition.
Lastly, I just wanna catch up with you guys. My job as a Visual Manager at H&M is going well, I really enjoy merchandising and I feel very much like I’m on the right path for my future. The Denver pop-up was amazing! Everyone was very interactive and I got a ton of support. I know I had mentioned the fashion rut I was going through in my last post but I am here to say that much has changed! I have felt more inspired and fearless with my fashion than ever before. I’m going to Florida this weekend to visit my friends which I could not be more excited about. I have so much love for those people and I’m missing those connections dearly, Don’t worry, I will be vlogging that entire trip and I promise it’ll be an entertaining one.
Until next time, I love you honeys so much!
