As Promised, I’m back with another post! I don’t have to too much to say so let’s jump right into it!

 

 

1. Patent leather boots ✨

These are my everything! Since they’re black they go with every outfit, but they add a touch of badass to every look! Plus they were on sale! These are from F21!

2. Mini LV Backpack ✨

This has been my go-to bag for the past couple of week. It’s small enough to be able to carry the basics and nothing more. That’s perfect for me, who can be a bit of a hoarder. 

3. Blush Fur Coat ✨

Peep my patent leather boots in this picture! Anyways, I have been lusting after a fur coat for months. Every blogger and their mother has a cheetah print one. But given, I’m a less adventurous girl, I went for this pale, blush coat. It’s so warm and cozy, the only thing is I wish it zippered and had pockets. Btw, this is from F21.

 

 

4. milk and honey 

Never did I think a book could change my life… milk an honey is chicken noodle soup for every girls’ soul. Read it, please.

 

5. SZA- Drew Barrymore

This song has been my national anthem for a couple of weeks now. It’s kind of about being in a controlling relationship and how one loses themself. I was once in the same position and this song reminds me of all the things I wish I could’ve said….  yeah.

Thanks guys!

My Christmas Wishlist!

Miscellaneous

Christmas is only 17 days away (at least it is as I’m writing this)! I’m definitely excited about this year. It’s my first year with a job, so it’ll be the first time I can actually get everyone on my list  decent gifts. I really can’t wait to see their reactions! I personally think I’m a great gift giver! However, I do have my own list, so without further ado, here it is!

A Shiba Inu!

I have loved Shibas for soo long now! They’re so cute and I’m ready to love one and be loved back! I want to go on long walks and have lots of snuggle time! I don’t necessarily want someone to get me one but it would be nice to have some money to help with the adoption process.

A Gold Macbook 12″

1461092823000_1248026

As I currently type this, I’m working on my mother’s computer. I basically want something that I’m free to call my own and have my own setup without worrying about other people’s stuff. Plus, not having to share is a big bonus for when I have to pull 5 hour essay writing sessions!

New DSLR

canon-rebel-t505

I already own a Canon 300D, but unfortunately mine doesn’t record video! I think the next step in my my blogging and Instagram career would be to take more professional photos. So I’m crossing my fingers that I get a new camera! Hopefully either a Canon Powershot or a Canon Rebel!

Zara’s Little Red Bag 8712104020_2_1_1I first saw this bag on Youtube and I’ve literally been dreaming of it since! I think it’s so cute and so unique. I absolutely love the bees as the metal detailing. Bees are kinda like my personal symbol. I have an Alex and Ani bracelet with a bee on it so this would be the perfect addition to my collection.

Colourpop Makeup

Just Peachy Lip Bundle

Love peachy tones. They’re especially lovely on dark skin tones!

Quarters Blush

supershockcheek-quarters_b9cca189-336e-440f-94de-2ada73717c11_1024x1024See a theme here?

Banks- The Altar (Vinyl)

I believe I’ve mentioned Banks in a favorites post before. If not, just go listen to her, she’s an actual queen! Her must is pretty much about girl power and forget about all the boy trouble you may be having. Absolutely love jamming to this album in my car, now it’s time to have it only vinyl! This can be found at urban outfitters 🙂

Faux Patent Leather Boots

I’ve been wanting to experiment with my shoes forever! These are a step above my comfort zone and I think they’re so badass. These can be found at Forever 21.

So that’s it for the specifics. Other much appreciated gifts include money, gift cards, anything and everything from Zara’s, plants, clothing, etc.

Thanks for Reading!

Fall Favorites 2016!

Miscellaneous

Fashion & Acessories

1. Berets

So, my first favorite is a cult classic! Berets are so fun to style, they make any outfit adorable! Imagine this paired with a cute pair of stockings and boots. They’re literally a perfect hat for fall.

2. Knee High Boots

Hands down, these are my most worn item this season! I’m wearing at least four times a week. I feel like cinderella in these. Paired with a beret, you’re unstoppable!

3. Brown leather jacket

Usually I always lean towards black. But this fall, I’ve been experimenting with warm tones as you can see by my instagram(@ash.leey). I really love this jacket on warmer days. Plus, I really love the style of this one. I wish it came in black or grey!

4. Sock Ankle Boots

For the past couple of weeks, it’s seemed like everyone had these except me. Now that I’ve a proud owner, I definitely don’t regret this purchase. My pair is from Aldo amd they were around $60. Lately I’ve been making a point to invest in good shoes! These fit the bill perfectly!

5. Band Tees

Such an easy piece to style! They’re cool and make me feel so hardcore. ‘Nuff said!

Makeup & Skincare

1. Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette

I have a newfound love for this palette! I absolutely adore rose gold and this palette is basically a dupe for the naked 3 one!

2. Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation

All month I’ve been reaching for this. It keeps me matte for most of the day and provides full to medium coverage! I’ve also been using a lighter shade as concealer.

 I definitely have more skincare favorites, however I plan on saving them for a skincare routine post!

Music

1. Childish Gambino

Recently Childish Gambino came out with two new songs and I love relaxing, jamming out to them! Check him out!

Thanks for reading! I’ll have a November haul coming out soon! Also happy 20th post to me!

July & August Favorites!

Miscellaneous

favorites

Hello everyone! It’s been awhile since I’ve made a traditional blog post. August has been a super busy month for me. I was on vacation for two weeks (check out my travel diary video) and I started a new job at my local music store. I really love my new job, I would be there everyday if I could. My coworkers are really funny and there’s a really cute boy there who looks like a combination of a young Leonardo DiCaprio and Cole Sprouse ( I’m in love). I’ve also been busy with my new YouTube channel which you should definitely check out if you haven’t already! Anyways enough about me, let’s jump into this month’s favorites!

Movies
Coco Avant Chanel

Fashion films have to be my absolute favorite! So of course it was only a matter of time before I stumbled upon this gem. Coco Avant Chanel is basically about Coco Chanel’s history and how the House of Chanel got its start. It’s a beautiful, emotional film that really makes you appreciate Chanel so much more. If you’re a fan of the Devil Wears Prada or fashion in general, this is a film for you.

Youtubers

The LineUp
I have admired these ladies for a long time, but latey they’ve been absolutely killing it. Their editing is on point, I just love watching their videos. Watch one of their videos and you’ll see why they’re on my favorites list.

Emily Lee
I have been watching this girl for over a year now and she has come such a long way! She’s very interesting to watch, her videos are never dull! She makes the best lookbooks and lately she’s been doing a video series in which she does makeup looks inspired by album covers. Emily has been uploading almost twice a week lately and I’m obsessed!

Clothing and Accessories

Vogue Glasses
So I got new glasses in August and they are these vogue brand, dark brown glasses. They’re really cute and I think they really suite my face! That’s pretty much all I can say.

           Band Shirts For this one I’ve been inspired by Maddi Bragg. She recently styled a band shirt with a flames skirt and I’ve been obsessed with the look! They’re really casual and laid back and super comfy!

Makeup

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

I’ve loved this palette since I got it last Christmas. It really is such a versitile palette. You can create glam looks and natural looks. It also suites a wide variety of skin tones. It’s definitely an investment that’s worth the money. I know a lot of names like KathleenLights absolutely adore this palette and so do I! Check it out.

Elf Dark Blush Palette

If you have a dark to medium skin tone and are looking for blushes, this is for you. I’m so surprised that these are so pigmented and unlike my Sephora blush, it lasts all day. So awesome!

Music

Lost in the Light by Bahamas

I absolutely love this song! It’s so catchy and reminds me of beaches and slow dances!

BORNS

My final favorite is Borns! I have had their album on repeat all month! My favorite song on their album is Holy Ghost. Give them a listen!

That’s all for my favorites! So sorry this was so delayed. Hope you all enjoyed!

Thanks!

June Favorites: Fashion, Beauty, Music & More

Miscellaneous

With the end of June comes a new favorites post! Like many youtubers and bloggers, at the end of every month I’ll be putting together a list of things I really enjoyed throughout the month. I personally really enjoy seeing what has inspired others, so I hope you guys do too! Let’s jump right into it!

Fashion

1. Uniqlo Shirt

Number one on my list is this long tank top from Uniqlo that I’ve kinda been wearing as a dress. You guys know it’s a favorite since I’ve shown myself wearing two different colors in OOTDs. My mother defined it perfectly: Pratical. It’s so easy to transform this shirt from a casual morning to a night out. I’ve worn it with both heals and sneakers and rocked them both! No matter what I usually pair it with various chokers. It is on the short side, so if you’re tall you won’t be able to wear this has a dress, but it’ll still make a cute top. 

2. Bomber Jacket

  Next is a bomber jacket from Zara. It’s supposed to be cropped but I sized up for a looser fit. It’s made of a satin material so it’s very lightweight and perfect for the summer. I just love the rose gold zipper. Details are everything and it will add something special to any outfit. It’s currently on sale so if you can, pick it up. You won’t regret it!
