Hey Guys,

I will splurge on things every now and then but for the most part most things that I buy to decorate my house and to wear are very affordable. Below are some recent finds for fall/winter fashion as well as for the home!

My friend Bree (Bree.At.Last) shared these and I thought that they were so cute! I'm obsessed with snakeprint and the price was so affordable. The size zip on the inside step is alot so convenient. After getting them and seeing them in person I was even more impressed. They have memory foam soles and were so comfy!

They are an affordable cruelty free brand whose products can be found at Target and other drugstores. Their products include skincare, body care, and makeup. They are most well known for their skincare products such as the infamous Glow Tonic. Their new products consist of 2 new eyeshadow palettes and 2 new face quads.

    On to my thoughts:
    These shadows aren't super pigmented at first swipe but more buildable. The shimmers are definitely more pigmented than the mattes and apply best with your finger. I actually used a Pixi Endless Shade Stick on my lids first with both that looks that I created with these Eye Effects palettes. Doing so helps the shimmer look even more pigmented on the lids. I was really happy with the look that I created using this palette. You can check it out on my IG reels HERE and HERE.

    On to my thoughts:
    I thought that this was a great palette for fall! The colors remind me of the changing leaves during this time of year. I love the warm tones and especially liked the green shade which I used to create a look. Again, I used a Pixi Endless Shade Stick as a base to make the green shimmer shade pop more on my lid. You can check that out HERE.

    On to my thoughts:
    I thought this palette was beautiful! The highlight shades are so pretty especially the pink shade that seems to shift in color. I love that these palettes can not only be used on the face but also on the eyes. I have been using both palettes non stop but this one is my favorite of the two.

    On to my thoughts:
    This palette is also pretty but the dark pink blush isn't my favorite. I prefer more subtle blushes like the second blush in this palette. Both highlighters are so pretty. The lighter highlighter works better for a highlight on me and the more pinkish purple highlighter would be better as a blush topper or eyeshadow.

    Overall, I really like all four palettes. While not every shade in every palette worked for me; there are definitely some gorgeous shades in each palette! However, if I had to pick which palette type that I would recommend more I would say the Nuance Quartettes. They are more versatile considering that you can use them on your face and your eyes. My favorite of the bunch is definitely Honey Nectar.

    Favorite Neutral Lip Products

    Hey Guys,

    I've been trying to mix things up and share different content besides reviews and unboxings. Today I am going to share my all time favorite neutral lip products! If you have been following me for a while now you know that 90% of the time I am wearing nude/neutral shades on my lips. I think reds are beautiful but they are very high maintenance. I wear those a few times a year but other than that I don't get very colorful with my lips. I have never been a fan of bright shades like hot pinks or fuchsias. Neutral/nude shades are just so easy to wear and great for everyday. I have an insane amount of lipstick so narrowing it down was pretty hard. Keep reading to find out my favorites!
