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!

Room Tour!

Lifestyle

Hello everyone! I’m very excited to share with you my room tour today! I’ve been working to perfect my room for a couple of months now and finally, I’m satisfied with everything!

So the first thing you see when you enter my room is the vanity. This is where I keep all my makeup and stuff. This one in particular is from Ikea as well as 99% percent of my room. On the chair I keep my Zara backpack. Underneath is just a waste bin and my school bag.

On top you can see my camera on a little display thing from Marshalls. I’m a big plant lover so I have a couple of plants, mostly from Ikea as well as the metal planters. On the left you can see my marquee “A” from Target! Next to that I have a storage unit where I keep jewelry and whatnot as well as a planner and my iPad.

Now this shelf is my pride and joy! The circle shelf is from Target and yes, they still sell it. On the bottom I have my watches, a fake plant from Marshalls, a photo of my city, and some glasses hanging off. On the middle shelf I have another fake plant from Marshalls, a Paris street Style Coloring book also from Marshalls, a copper geometric ball from Marshalls, and a couple essie nail polishes.  Finally on the top is a candle, mini succulent, and another photo of NYC.

Moving on is my closet and mirror. The mirror is from Target. Behind me you can see my desk and my viola case.  Next to my mirror I keep a spider plant, a record player, and a golden pathos.

Above my windows I have some prints that I dry mounted in photography class.

On the next wall is a set of drawers from Ikea. The little copper lamp is also from Ikea. I have an aloe vera and another unknown plant.

I have a little diy marble board as well as my journal and sketch book on top. Next to that is a geometric diamond from HomeGoods. Behind that I have another candle and almost dead cactus.

Next is my bed! It’s from, you guessed it, Ikea. My duvet is also from Ikea. The two black square pillows are from Bed Bath and Beyond. The furry pillow and furry blanket are from Marshalls!

Above my bed, I have this pendant lamp that I ordered off of amazon with one of those cool lightbulbs from Home Depot.

Next to my bed is my little bookshelf. I have two cacti, a fake succulent bowl, and a picture that I diy’d for about $2. In the black bins from Amazon, I store my books, colored pencils, and wires.

Finally, my door. I have a collection of bags hanging from it as well as my laundry bin in the corner. 

At last, we have come full circle! That’s it for my room tour. If you have any questions or comments, be sure to leave them down below and I’ll do my best to answer! 

Thanks for reading,
