Lush Halloween 2017 Wishlist

Lush

This was not the post that I originally had planned but at the same time this is, let me explain by saying that I had planned on doing a Lush Halloween and Christmas wishlist, but I started looking at the Christmas stuff and realized that I am lusting after way too many things from the Christmas stuff that I’ve decided to do a separate post later on in the year rather than now. But, now that I plan to only talk about the Halloween stuff I realized I don’t have a ton of Halloween stuff that I’m itching to try out, so this may be a shorter post, either way let’s get to talking about some Lush.

Fall 2017 Makeup Wishlist!

Fall MakeupWishlist

I am on a no buy right now so doing this post is really helping with that, it’s like window shopping, which can be satisfying as well, though never quite as good as actual shopping.  So, I guess I’m just going to share some of the things that I’ve been looking at, debating drooling over, etc. and talk just a bit about them. Let’s dive on into my wishlist for the fall season.

Fashion Wishlist: Fall 2017

Fall FashionWishlist

It has been a little while since I’ve done a fashion wishlist, the last one that I did was all the way back in spring, I forgot to do one for the fall time so there for sure will not be a complete set this year, which is a little bit disappointing but there’s not a lot I can do about it. Either way, today I am here to talk a bit about my fall fashion wishlist, a list of clothing that I am lusting over/think would be super cute for the fall season. Let’s jump right in.

24th Birthday Wishlist!

Birthday Wishlist
If you didn’t know my birthday is coming up, I feel a little bit childish being excited about my birthday, but damn it I am excited. I will be turning 24 this year, which you may have been able to tell by the title, and I have a few posts planned, not too many as I didn’t want to be obnoxious plus I couldn’t really come up with more than the three that I had, so there’s that. Anyway, my birthday is next Thursday, September the 14th, so today I’m going to share a little wishlist, let’s just get right on into it!

Etsy Finds #1

Etsy Finds

I feel like I go through phases when it comes to Etsy, meaning I’m really obsessed with it and then I forget that it exists, this is a pretty quick cycle between the two but since I’m doing a post all about Etsy finds I think it might be clear that I am really into Etsy at this moment in time. Basically, if this post isn’t already clear, I’m just going to share some Etsy finds that I either really want to get my hands on or just think are really cool, because Etsy is such a huge place where you can get all sorts of things and that’s what I love about it, plus I love smaller business and handmade things, I think it’s all around a really neat place.

These really cute black tassel fan earrings are from midgetgems on Etsy. I really love tassel earrings at the moment in time, I have a ton favorited on my Etsy and these were the pair that really stuck out to me, so that’s why I decided to feature these ones today. It says these are black but they look a little more navy like to me, which I personally prefer and I prefer gold over silver, so these are just right up my alley.

 

I have another pair of earrings to share, these ones are studs and a little bit more understated I think. These are from TwoBlueCreations, on Etsy, of course. I’ve been looking at this style of earring for a little while now, I really like the shape of it, how it has glitter suspended in it and it just looks a little foggy. This shop has a bunch of different options of earrings that look like these but these are the ones that I thought were best.

 

Pins and things like that seem to be crazy popular right now, at one point I saw no one talking about them but now they are everywhere, especially on Etsy. Because of this, I picked this really cool Sailor Moon one out from PixiuNYC on Etsy. I have been eyeing this for a little while now, I love Sailor Moon and I love that this flips open, it just overall seems really cool and I’m probably going to have to purchase this before jacket season hits us. I wear most of my pins on my denim jacket.

 

It’s probably clear by the recent posts on my blog that I have fallen back in love with nail polish, we never parted ways but I wasn’t really buying polish often and wasn’t as focused on it, I have returned though. This polish is from GiddyDesign on Etsy. I’m not a huge fan of white polishes but I adore this one because of all of the colorful, pastel glitter that is suspended throughout it.

 

I love this tee! It’s very simple and straight forward, which I quite enjoy. This is from RevlApparel on Etsy. I’m thinking about getting this for myself and my bridesmaids as our matching tees, instead of being one of those obnoxious bridesmaids, bride, etc. kind of shirts. I am debating between one of those obnoxious ones and this, not sure if I’m going to go either route but I do enjoy this shirt.

 

 

 

Speaking of wedding things, here is another wedding type of item that I have had my eye on for way too long now. I am not sure if I will be wearing a garter or not, which is why I haven’t pulled the trigger on this beauty. This garter is from annabrides on Etsy. This will be the garter I wear if I do wear one.

 

I feel like this one is almost more of a shop find than it is just an item, I had such a hard time picking out one card to use in this post but I settled on this one, which is just the cutest thing ever. This is from MyZoetrope on Etsy. All of the cards in this shop are so cute! It’s so hard to just pick one when you look through it all.

 

And my last item is something really similar to something that I used to own but ended up breaking and that is this really cute cat lady wine glass, it just speaks to me and I love it so I had to feature it here. This is from HakunaMoscatoDesigns on Etsy. They sell tons of stemless wine glasses but this is my all time favorite!

And those are all of the finds that I am featuring this time around. I really loved doing this post and I hope you guys enjoy it to, if you do I’m really thinking about making this a monthly post just because it was so fun and I love finding cute things on Etsy. I think this was a fun mix to show off how wide the Etsy range can be, even though this was only a little taste.

Should I make this a monthly post?

Summer 2017 Wishlist!

Add heading

It’s time for another seasonal wish list, a few months ago I posted a spring clothing wishlist and I’ve decided with it now pretty much-being summer that it was probably time to do one for the summer time, however this time around I’ve done a mix of products. Which really just means makeup, skincare and clothes basically, but still it’s a mixture of things that I am lusting after this warm season.

31ApstpzFIL Let’s start this list off with something very random, something small and very cute, the Tonymoly Gummy Bear Jelly Hand Cream in the scent Raspberry. Ulta carries a few of these currently but not this scent, and if I’m being completely honest I think I would like the scent but I really just want a cute little bit gummy bear to sit on my desk. Yes, I am aware that’s kind of a stupid reason for wanting something but I also really like hand creams and find myself using them a lot at work. Plus this one is just really cute!

52046189Let’s continue one with the kind of strange and weird products, let’s talk about these earrings from the SUGARFIX by BaubleBar collection for Target. I know these are kind of tacky and a little bit out there, but I still really like them and think that they would be a really fun and interesting piece for the spring and summer time, even if I’m not sure how often I would wear them. I just really like the colors and think they look super fun, so I may have to get my hands on these the next time I am in a Target.

41PhjmTGjLLI am a lover of nail polish as you may know, I also really like glitter even though I don’t wear it enough and in the summer time I love bright, fun things like most people, so I think this nail polish has all of those things. The is the China Glaze Polish in Point Me To The Party. This looks like it would be a super fun glitter topper to so many different colors and I really want to get my hands on it, or better yet it on my nails.

61brSII68IL._SX522_Another slightly strange item but a product that I think fits really well with the summer theme, mostly because everyone seems to be obsessed with beachy waves in the summer time. This is a Bed Head Wave Artist, which I have heard very good things about and seen some really great pictures of the aftermath of this. I am also not really a big hair person, I’m not good at doing hair and I’m usually really lazy about when I do because I just don’t like putting in the effort much, however, this seems like it’s very user-friendly and very easy to do so I am interested in this just for something a little bit different.

52309833I really like this dress from Target, I think this is very pretty, soft and summery which sounds like the perfect recipes for something on this list. The thing about this dress is I’m not really sure where I would wear it because while it doesn’t seem fancy it also doesn’t seem super casual, but I’m still loving the look of this dress and kind of lusting after this. Also, I think this would make a very pretty bridal dress for my rehearsal/if I start feeling hot and don’t want to wear my wedding dress any longer but I’m not sure about that.

51731865These sandals are the next thing on this list, they are from Target like half of the things on this list. I saw these and knew that they had to go on this list because I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to get these, they belong in my closet. I adore sandals and I really love beaded things, so I really need to get my feet into these.

Let’s throw it to some makeup, one of the few cosmetic items that are on this list is the Nars Orgasm Blush.  I don’t need this at all, but this is so hyped up and looks so pretty that I’m kind of drooling over it currently. This is one of the things on this list that I may not pick up, but I am still lusting over it.

2209798

I recently got a sample of the Mario Badescu Hylauronic Eye Cream and tried it out for a few days, I think I really love this stuff! I mean I only tried it out for a few days but now I really want to get the full size and see how it does because I really loved the sample size. I am never sure if eye cream does anything but when I tried this one I felt like it actually did.

52139802This dress from Target is the next thing that is on the list, I think this is really cute and the shape of this dress is a shape that I love. I also bought a romper recently that I think is this pattern as well, so clearly I am very favorable of this pattern. I really want to try on this dress and see how it goes.

CaptureThese Steven Madden Sandals are the next thing on the list, which means that this is the last thing on the list. I love these sandals so much because they look so metallic and I love that look! I think these sandals are very simple but that may also be a little bit of the reason why I’m really into them, they seem like something that could go with anything.

And those are all of the things that I am lusting after for the summer time, some a relvent to the summer and some are just things I’m really interested in at the moment, but either way this is still a wishlist. Because I am a shopaholic I’ll probably end up with most of the things from this list, but we will just have to wait and see what I think of a few of them.

What’s on your summer wishlist?

Foundation Round Up 2017

Foundation Round Up

I’ve decided to do something a little bit fun and different than what I usually do, of course, I blog about makeup all the time but I don’t think I’ve rounded up a bunch of one product to compare. In this case, I’ve rounded up all of the foundations that I currently own and I’m going to go over all of them just a little bit. Let’s jump right on in and talk about foundations.

20170423_130554.jpg

I have seven different foundations to talk about today, I would have had eight if my Sephora order came in but it did not, so we are stuck with seven very different foundations to talk about which is plenty, I just kind of wish I could have gotten the last one too.

Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer in Light Natural. Is the first one up, this one is something I hear nothing but good things about and I’m not sure that I really like this. This is for sure a full coverage foundation but it really feels like it, like when I wear this I am completely aware that I have foundation on my face as it feels a little bit like a mask. So, I’m not really that into it. My other problem with this is the color, this is the new lightest shade that they make and it’s still not light enough for me, this is about two shades too dark for me so maybe I’ll be able to wear it in the summer, but as of right now it is just not the foundation for me. I do like it a lot more when I mix it with other foundations, it lightens it while also making it feel a lot lighter usually but by itself, it’s just not for me. Where To Buy: Milani Website Price: $10.00

Clinique Superbalanced Makeup in Alabaster. This is something that my future mother in law swears by, so being a makeup addict I had to try it out, especially when I picked this up I was testing out foundations for bridal makeup so my theory was the more the merrier. But, this is something that I don’t actually hate. I would not wear it for bridal makeup, it’s a little too sheer for me, I find that this has a lighter coverage which I don’t mind but it’s just not what I was going for in terms of wedding makeup. This one is also a tiny bit darker than I might like but this is something that I can still easily wear, so I do find myself reaching for this. Where To Buy: Clinique Website Price: $25.00

Wet ‘N Wild Photo Focus Foundation in Nude Ivory. This is another foundation that I feel like the internet is just in love with, this was hard to find at first but once I did find it I for sure picked it up. I hate the smell of this foundation, I want to get that out of the way because I think that is the only negative I have to say about this one, it smells like paint thinner and it is strong. I like everything else about this, I feel like this has good coverage but not quite full, so it still looks and feels like natural skin instead of like a mask. I think the shade range of this foundation is another plus, the shade range in store is kind of lacking everywhere that I’ve seen it but online it’s impressive for drugstore. So, I really like this one. Where To Buy: Wet ‘N Wild Website Price:$5.99

L’oreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation in Creamy Natural. This is the newest foundation to me, I bought this maybe a couple of weeks ago and somehow managed to grab the wrong shade, I think this one was in the spot for the one that I wanted and I just wasn’t paying attention so I’m not sure what to do with this one, I haven’t tried it out a whole lot yet but the color match isn’t that bad, this still ends up being a foundation I mix with one of my lighter ones but it’s not that off. I do find that I like the formula of this one, it’s lightweight while still providing coverage, it also has lasting power and I really wish I had picked up the right shade. Where To Buy: L’oreal Website Price: $12.99

Too Faced Born The Way Foundation in Snow. This is the only mid-range foundation in this bunch, the clinique one is a little bit pricey but I would consider this truly mid range. This is probably my favorite of the bunch, if not my favorite then it is damn near close and comes in at second, this one and the next two foundations are all things that I really love so I’m splitting hairs a little bit talking about which is my favorite. This one feels natural on the skin, I never even noticed that I’m wearing it, but it still provides really good coverage and I think it can be built up to full coverage even. I think this foundation is completely worth the price tag. Where To Buy: Too Faced Website Price: $39.00

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation in Porcelain. This is the other one that really competes with the Too Faced one above for my favorite, it’s a really fantastic foundation and it’s drugstore. The shade match of this for me is perfect, it looks like it was meant for me, the formula of this is really good and lasts for quite some time. It is a matte foundation, I really want to try the glowy version of this but I haven’t yet, I was trying to use some things up. Anyway, this feels lightweight on the skin, gives some coverage and lasts for a little while so overall this is a really nice foundation, especially since it’s from the drugstore. Where To Buy: Maybelline Website Price: $7.99

NYX Total Control Drops in Porcelain. I think this is a little bit of a strange product but I find it to be really useful, especially with those couple of foundations that are the slightest bit too dark for my skin tone at the moment. I like these alright on their own, they give a light coverage and I find that it takes a lot of this to get a full face of this on. How I have been loving using this is mixing it though, it’s perfect for that and I’m pretty sure that’s the intended use of this product, it lightens without really changing the finish or feel of the foundation, which is a really useful thing I think. The only con to this one is that I can see myself using it up quickly. Where To Buy: NYX Website Price: $14.99

20170423_131456.jpgNow that I’ve gone over all of the foundations a little bit I think it is time to share some swatches with you guys. We will be going from top to bottom with these swatches.

Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-In-1 Foundation and Concealer in Light Natural.

Clinique Superbalanced Makeup in Alabaster.

Wet ‘N Wild Photo Focus Foundation in Nude Ivory.

L’Oreal Infalliable Pro Glow Foundation in Creamy Natural.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Snow.

Maybelline Matte + Porless Foundation in Porcelain.

NYX Total Control Drops in Porcelain.

And those are all of the foundations that I currently own and a little bit of what I think about each one, I don’t think I really own any that I don’t like, there are for sure ones that I enjoy more than others but I think for the most part I like all of these.

What’s your favorite foundation?

Lush Wishlist!

April 2017

I’m sure by now I’ve made it very clear that I really love Lush, I feel like I haven’t made that as known recently but I guess it’s time to fix that as today I am going to talk about my Lush wishlist. I tried to keep this to things that I haven’t tried before because there are so many things at Lush that I haven’t tried. This is a fairly long list, as things usually are, so I’m going to jump right into talking about this one.

Sunnyside Bubble BarI never tried the older version of this or the new one, but I kind of really want to get my hands on one. For one thing, I think this is really pretty, its gold and sparkly which sounds right up my alley, plus its half of mermaid water and that sounds like something I’d enjoy.

You’ve Been Mangoed Luxury Bath Oil this one is something that I have and haven’t tried, yes, it’s both. I have tried out the old style of this one and quite enjoyed it but I just haven’t gotten my way around to trying out the new formula, I really want to though.

Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub is something that I’ve already tried before, there are only three or four things that I’ve tried before but I haven’t had any of them in large sizes or more than once, so I decided to throw them in and this is one of them. I love to use this before I shave, nothing is quite as good as this but because I use it on my legs it ends up getting used up so easily and it’s expensive, but I would love to pick up a giant pot of this one.

Jersey Bounce Shampoo this is another one that I have had a small pot of before but am really itching to get my hands on, I just go through it so quick and there is no longer a Lush close to me so it’s just kind of a pain in the ass to get a hold of frequently, meaning shipping gets expensive when I’m buying this every two weeks. Then again, I could stock up on it I guess, either way, I really want to try this out again.

Tangled Hot Oil Treatment is something that I want to try because as my hair gets longer and longer it becomes more tangled and a little bit of a hassle, so I’m just curious if this would help my hair out and I really want to give it a go.

Hair Custard Hair Dressing this is something I’ve had a sample of and it went a long way, so that’s a little bit of why I’ve been putting off picking up a full size of this product, that and just the fact that it doesn’t really do much for me other than tame some of my flyaways and makes my hair smell amazing, but maybe that’s good enough of a reason to pick it up?

Sunny Day Hair Detangler is yet another thing that I’d like to try because of my hair being a tangled mess, I have leave in conditioner and detangler already but I love Lush and want to see how this holds up.

Celestial Facial Moisturizer the only reason I haven’t picked this up is because I have so many moisturizers at all times, I pick up samples all over the place and especially since I subscribe to the Sephora Play box, but I’ve always wanted to own this.

Breath of Fresh Air Toner  is a more recent addition to the list here, but it’s something that I want to get my hands on because I’ve been getting really into skin care as of recently and I don’t think I really have a toner.

Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter. I have a cuticle butter that I am working on but once that one is finished I’m really thinking about picking this one up, I just can’t decide if I want this for sure or not because it seems like a lot of product and it seems really lotion like, but I’m still kind of lusting after it.

From Dusk ‘Til Dawn Massage Bar is a weird one for me, I’ve never used a massage bar before but I do love moisturizing things and I really love the way that this one smells, so maybe this we’ll be something that I end up giving a shot. My only question is how to store this one since it’s such an odd shape, Lush should really make tins for their strangely shaped products.

Sophisticated Eyeshadow is something else I really want to try and this is something that I’ll probably pick up the next time I’m in a Lush store, I really like makeup and playing with it, plus I’ve been reviewing a lot more and never dipped into the mass amount of makeup that Lish sells so this may be something that I need in my life very soon.

Perspective Lipstick is another makeup product that I haven’t tried, I haven’t tried any of the makeup at all and often forget that they sell it, but this lipstick looks really gorgeous and like something that might be right up my alley.

And those are all of the Lush products that I’m lusting after, excluding a few random odds and ends, and all of the seasonal things just because I didn’t want to put in things that you can’t get all year round on this list, plus it was already plenty long without mothers day and easter.

So, what Lush products are on your Lush wishlist?

2017 Makeup Wishlist

I know I’m a little bit late in a way, not that there is a specific timeline for something like this, but it’s still the beginning of the year in my head and this just didn’t make the cut last month. So, this month I’m going to talk about all of the makeup that I’m just lusting after and really want to try this year, some of which I may get my hands on and some of which I may end up changing my mind on, who really knows. But, at this very moment in time, these are all of the products I’m really lusting after, and there will be quite a few due to me having a problem. I think I have the same problem most other beauty bloggers have, the need to want to try every single thing. Anyway, now that I’ve rambled on for too long let’s just jump right on into talking about all of the things.
