#HolidayHaute: My favorite perfume + a GIVEAWAY!!!

Yup, you heard that right!!

This post is a collab with a few other lovely ladies [Yazzi | Val | Devyn | Elisabeth | Simone] & we’re giving you some of our FAVORITE products!!!

Now, if there’s something you need to know about me, it’s that I obsess over many things (such as boybands, shot glasses, makeup, journals, the list goes on and on) and when I have an obsession, I go hard. One of my obsessions is PERFUME. I don’t feel complete without it. I genuinely get upset if I leave my apartment without perfume! I blame my mother for this because she too is a perfume addict! We have loads! So of course, it was only right that I give away one of my ALL TIME favorite perfumes for this giveaway: Our Moment by One Direction. I don’t like this perfume just because I love the band, I TRULY adore this perfume. It smells amazing & every time I wear it, I get complimented. YOU NEED IT IN YOUR LIFE. If you’d like me to do a perfume collection post, please leave me a comment below.

Sweater Weather Tag

First off, I’d like to thank the lovely Lainey for tagging me in this! I love everything about fall, and chilly weather, so it’s literally the perfect tag! Check out her blog for posts on life, health, beauty & motherhood! 😀

Favourite candle scent? 

Marshmallow Fireside from Bath & Body Works. It’s been one of my favorites for years now.

Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?

Hot chocolate! I like coffee, but only iced, and I have to be in the mood for it!

What’s the best fall autumn memory you have? 

I went apple picking for the first time ever with my roommate & her friend my sophomore year of college. 🙂

Which make-up trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?

How can I choose one?! They’re both fabulous, especially together. But winged eyeliner has a special place in my heart.

Best fragrance for fall? 

I don’t wear perfume based on the seasons, I wear whichever perfume I grab first haha!

Favourite Thanksgiving food (or fall autumn food if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving)?

Pernil.. my mom’s makes it soooooo good.

What is autumn weather like where you live? 

Chilly, windy, and perfect. But lately, too damn hot…like hello weather, get it together.

Most worn sweater?

Lately I’ve been wearing a Las Vegas hoodie every day, it’s oversized and comfy!

Football games or jumping in leaf piles?

Leaf piles!

Favourite type of pie?

Pumpkin & Apple!

What song really gets you into the fall autumn spirit? 

Again, I don’t really associate things with the season, so I can’t pick one song for this. Every song gets me hype and in a good mood hahah!

Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

Pumpkin spice everything….BUT lattes. Those are foul. HAHA.

I’m tagging these ladies whom I’ve been communicating with daily..for a special surprise to be announced SOON! ;P

Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag!

What better than a tag post to start off this week on a fun & random note?! Let’s jump right into it!

(tag originally found here)


  1. Name a beauty regimen that you rarely do? Moisturizing my body after a shower. I normally just lotion up the areas that get the most dry & call it a day…and that’s if I remember to do that! Haha!
  2. Is washing your make-up brushes something that you do regularly? I don’t know if I should answer this! Haha! Okay, Okay…um..it’s not something I do as often as I should.
  3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish? On my toes, months. On my fingers, um, depends. LOL..maybe about 2 weeks.
  4. How long will you put off buying/replacing a beauty product, even if you need it? This is not something I skimp on. If I need something, and I have a few extra dollars to repurchase it, I do.
  5. What is your worst beauty habit? Touching my blemishes. I know you shouldn’t, as it could lead to scarring, but I can’t help it. I want it gone, not just chillin’ on my face!
  6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time? Changing my bed sheets. It’s just SO much work. But, then I remember that I have to be grateful to have a bed, and I quickly get over putting it off.
  7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready to the last minute? I try to plan, to make myself seem like I’m being organized, but I always end up behind schedule.
  8. Can you commit to spending bans? 100% no. LOL. Something I’m trying to work on is my willpower. I suck at changing my habits!
  9. How organized are your make-up and nail polish collections? My makeup is in a huge case my aunt got me for my birthday last year, & my nail polish is all in a drawer, so I’m gonna say..pretty damn organized!

Feel free to tag as many people as you’d like! I tag: Valerie | Brianna | Kat | Rossy

Tagged the first 4 I see in my reader, but please feel free to do this tag even if you’re not tagged & let me know, in the comments below, so I can read your answers!! xo

Is this weird??

Like most people nowadays, I’m addicted to Snapchat. I love posting little snippets of my day to my story, or sending silly messages to my friends using various Snapchat lenses. It’s a lot of fun! A few times I’ve done mini makeup tutorials via Snapchat; I like to pretend I’m a Youtube Beauty Guru, haha! Anyways, today, one of my friends sent me a video snap asking me why I do I do my eye makeup prior to applying foundation. She said she has never seen anyone do their makeup that way, and was curious.

The simple answer for this? I do it to prevent eyeshadow fallout from getting stuck in my foundation/concealer. I hate when I apply my face makeup, and then when I go to blending my eyeshadow, I get pink/purple/black (you get the deal) flakes all over my face. Depending on the eyeshadow, it’s hard to wipe off after you’ve already applied your foundation/concealer; Blending shadow is NO JOKE.  So to avoid this, I do my eye makeup first.  Another reason I do my eyes first is because it’s my favorite part of doing my makeup, and it takes me the longest.

Do you do your eyes first? Or Do you prefer to do your face first?? Let me know in the comments below! 🙂 xo

Sunshine Blogger Award.


Hello friends!

My fabulous friend Valerie just nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award which I’m super thankful for; we all know I love tag posts! I know I tell you this all the time, but definitely check out Val’s blog! Super chic, and she posts weekly! If you want someone who’s consistent, friendly & runs an excellent blog, she’s the one to follow!

The Rules:

  • Thank the person/people who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions from your nominators.
  • Nominate eleven other bloggers and give them eleven questions.
  • Like what I mentioned before, this is to spread the love and I’m doing these awards so that we’ll meet interesting bloggers. Please do check out all of the blogs I nominated and follow them if you like.

(Another variation I’ve seen is to nominate 6 people, and give 3 questions & that’s the version I’ll be doing.)

Here are the questions Valerie asked me:

  1. What’s one thing you love about the fall season? The change of weather!!! I can’t stand summer because it’s so hot and humid! I love the cool breeze in the fall, it instantly makes me happier!
  2. When you’re feeling down, what do you do to feel better? I listen to music whenever I’m not in the best of moods. Listening to some of my favorite artists and bands always cheers me up.
  3. What is your comfort food? Pizza. Always and forever.
  4. Where is your favorite place to be and why? Definitely Manhattan. I know so many people who can’t stand being in the city because it’s always so crowded, and full of tourists, but I love it. I’m a city girl 100%.
  5. What’s one thing that makes you happy? As Valerie said, it’s going to sound super cheesy, but, One Direction. Just everything about those 4 (almost typed 5.. :/) cheer me up instantly.
  6. If you could travel anywhere right now, where would you go? In the U.S, California; Out of the country, England.
  7. What is one thing you love about yourself? This might sound silly, but, my ability to say no. I know so many people who don’t know how to tell others no. I don’t do things simply because someone feels I need or should do something. If I don’t feel like it, there’s no changing my mind, so don’t bother.
  8. What is one thing you love about your blog? Can I choose everything? I love my header, I love the schedule I’ve created, and I love the interaction I have with my readers. Blogging isn’t easy, but it’s definitely worth it all.
  9. Why do you blog? 1. To escape. Blogging helps get my mind off things when I’m stressed and/or upset. 2. For the interaction. I love meeting new people, making new friends and sharing my tips/tricks and/or advice with the world.
  10. Name 3 things you can’t live without. These types of questions are always so hard. 1. Family 2. Makeup 3. Laptop
  11. What are you looking forward to this weekend? Probably grocery shopping. I’m working on going back to this healthy lifestyle journey I’ve been on for the past few years. I know I say this like every other month, but I really need to try my hardest.

My nominees are:

  1. Carlynn @ Carlynn’s Blog.
  2. Anna @ Bee Beauty.
  3. Arielle @ With All My Affection.
  4. Devyn @ Devyn Cox.
  5. Diana @ Diana’s Adventures.
  6. Brey @ Ordinary Adventures.

Here are my questions:

  1. What’s your favorite childhood memory?
  2. Who is your blogging inspiration?
  3. What is your favorite family tradition?
  4. Besides blogging, what is your favorite hobby?
  5. What camera do you use for your photos?
  6. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Hope you all have fun with this post! I changed it up, as usual. I posted 6 questions instead of 3 or 11 and I nominated 6 bloggers instead of 11! Even if I personally didn’t nominate you, feel free to post this on your blog and tag me! I’d love to read your answers!

Dwindling friendships.

Today’s rant is on a topic I’ve written about before, Dwindling Friendships. I’m very big on keeping friendships alive. I have friends that I still talk to from elementary school, to highschool, to now college. If I consider you one of my friends, it’s for a reason. I enjoy your company and your humor, and assuming so, vice versa.  So imagine how annoyed I must get when I try to make plans with people, and they “forget” or are “so busy”. I just don’t like people who won’t make the effort to talk or hang out with me, especially when the people who don’t make the effort are people I actually try to hang out with constantly. I’m not going to be the only one keeping this friendship alive, it’s a team freaking effort and if you give up, let me know, so I can give up as well. It sucks too, cause it’s people I considered to be close friends.  I’m nobody’s backup friend, Don’t talk to me just because YOU’RE available now, but weren’t when I wrote you. It really sucks that people I thought I would be friends with for YEARS, I don’t even talk to anymore. We don’t have to talk daily, but dammit a text every now and then would be nice.

People don’t realize I can drop friends pretty easily. If you don’t want to associate with me, then I won’t associate with you. It’s really that simple. Yeah, at first it’ll suck, but eventually I’ll get over it. Trust me, I’ve done it plenty of times before.

Do you have any dwindling friendships? Let me know in the comments below xo
