European Makeup & Accessory Haul!

Hi Girls!
So I've been home from Europe for almost 2 weeks now, and I realized that I haven't done a haul on the things that I got! Because this was a school trip we didnt have a bunch of time for personal-type shopping, but I was able to find some great things! So this post will be on the makeup and accessories I bought while I was in Paris and also in Italy. So lets get to it!

To start off, I got these super cute, perfect for spring and summer, earrings from H&M in Florence, Italy. These were the first thing that I saw when I walked in the store and I fell in love with them right away! They were only about € 5.00!


Also in Florence, I bought these cute leather bracelets from a vender on the street. I love how these have a boho style to them. These were super cheap. I got 6 for € 5.00!

While in Venice, we found this really unique makeup store called Kiko. The makeup was all super cheap and super pretty as well! I bought this pinkish-white shadow for only € 5.00! And I love it so much!

At the same store, I also picked up some magnetic nail polish in a dark plum color. The magnet I bought with it creates stripes on your nail when you bring the magnet to the polish. I loved the design when I tried it! I also bought a nail art brush, that I am exicted to start to use it. For these items this was only around € 8.00. 


When I walked in the first souvenir shop in Paris, I fell in love with all the pink! Here I bought a pink Eiffle Tower phone chain, a Pink and Gem sparkly bracelet, and super cute Pink Bow Eiffle Tower Earrings. I also bought this adorable compact mirror. I just love this so much! These came to a total just over € 25.00

In Paris I also found this nail file, but what is great about this one is that it is a glass file! Ive been looking for the perfect one for so long, and I figured what better place to get one then in Paris! This was only around € 4.00

Hope you enjoyed the makeup & accessory part of my European Haul! There is more to come to make sure to watch for that!

Snappy Sorbet NOTW

Hi beauties!
I thought tonight would be a perfect night to post about some spring nails since it is a cold evening here and I know it's been cold all around the world too! So hopefully these spring nails can warm you up! :)

For my nails I used a Sally Hansen Polish from their Insta Dri collection in the color Snappy Sorbet. It's a pretty bright summery orange color - perfect for hot weather. However, I did not really like how fast the color dried because it was hard to spread access the nails since it does actually dry instantly!

What has been your favorite spring/ summer color so far?

March Favorites!

Hi Beauties!
Today I have my favorite products of March for you! I don't have a big variety of products, mainly because I've been loving and using the same products lately!
So let's get to it! :)

1. John Frieda Controlled Lightening Spray
I have been using this spray since January I think, and it says that this spray is suppose to lightening your hair as well as make your hair not look brassy. This spray has actually worked and I am loving it! Usually around this time I need to color my hair again, but since I've used this spray I don't need to touch up my roots! It is definitely something I would recommend to blondes!

2. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Polish
I have actually been loving 3 spring colors from their collection. The colors stay on my nails for about 5-7 days which is a pretty good amount of time for a drug store nail polish. The colors I have been loving are Lacey Lilac, Coral Reef, and Mint Sorbet. The colors in this collection are super cute, I wish I had them all!

3. Physicians Formula Bamboo Bronzer
A few months ago I bought this bronzer, but havent needed to open it until now. I have been using this for about a less then a month, but I am loving it! It really leaves your skin with a glow and it almost looks like you have a highlighter on, but it is just the effect of the bronzer! It does have a more of a yellow color to the bronzer. So far I am loving it :)

4. E.L.F. 100 Shadow Palette
I do talk about this palette alot, not just on here but also around my house or at school. I really love this palette because there are so many colors that are really pigmented. It has a mixture of shimmer and matte textures. The only thing I do not like about it, is that some of the colors are kind of chalky. But other than that this is a really good palette for me!

5. Favorite Song
This month I have been loving the song Roll Up by Walk Off The Earth. This is a cover of the song by Wiz Kahlifa. If you have not heard of Walk Off The Earth, definately check them out! They make amazing songs!

Mellow Yellow Spring NOTW

Hey girls!
Sadly this is going to be one of my last posts before I go on a school trip to Europe! I knew this post would have to be fun spring-y nail art!

The yellow color I used was actually a really old color! It's from one of NYC's collections from I think about 4 years ago, but hey its still good polish! The yellow color is Taxi Yellow. I then used a black polish and my nail art burst to create this design.

What's your go-to spring polish color?

Bold in Blues: Spring Makeup Look

Hi loves!
Today I have another spring makeup look! This one, and you can tell from the title, is a blue makeup look. I wore this look out this weekend and thought I'd share it with you girls :) I found that the blue colors actually made my blue eyes pop!
--Pictures were taken with my iPhone, so they aren't the best quality!

For this look, I used 2 different eyeshadows. First off I used my Joe Fresh eyeshadow in Ice to apply some white shadow to my inner corner of my eye and also to my brow bone. I then took my ELF Brightening Eye Color Palette in Ocean Dream. I mixed the two lightest blue colors and applied it to the middle of my eye, then I took the darkest blue and used that on my outer V. I finished up the look with my usual mascara and eyeliner routine.

What color do you find makes your eyes pop?? 
Hope you had a great weekend!
