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

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!

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!

My Swimsuit Collection 2016

Fashion

Hello everyone! Since summer is here, I thought it was the perfect time to show you guys my swimsuit collection. I only have a handful to show since summer has only just started, so I might do a part two. Hopefully you can get some ideas for this year.

So this first one is from Target. I got it last year during a buy one get one 50% off sale. The top is a halter top with mis while the sides of the bottom has mesh. I haven’t had any slipping with this one or any crazy tan lines. It’s not super modest, but at the same time it’s not pushing the boundaries.

This one is from Old Navy and I picked it up last year as well. It’s definitely a good hcoice if you’re looking for a little more coverage in a bikini. No sagging or slips with this one either.

Next is this orange Triangl bikini dupe from Marshalls. It is literally exactly the same but 1/4 the price. I really like the neoprene mat rial because it stays molded to your body. It also smooths things out which is always nice. I picked up the same top in black in the winter clearance section for $4.

Finally is another triangl dupe in white. This is is slightly different because the top straps tie in the back like a halter top and the bottoms clearly aren’t neoprene. Still, the color really pops against my dark skin. The only thing is I wish I got the bottoms a size larger. This is from Target and I got it this year so you can still find it in store!

Hope this was helpful!
