Romwe Haul (Video)

Hello everyone,

Spring is here and we’re almost into summer! I wanted some new clothes for the season, while also not spending too much. That’s why I decided to check out Romwe. Romwe is one of those sites you see advertised all the time on Facebook and Instagram. I figured I’d check it out because they usually have a picture of something really cute, with $11 next to it.

So, I ended up purchasing some items for the website. I bought mostly clothes, which I do try on in the video, and some random accessories as well.

Check out my video below and let me know what you think!

Amazon Five-Shelf Stand

Hello everyone!

I decided it was time for me to invest in a shelf for my bathroom because my counter was overflowing with makeup products. I was searching Amazon for a inexpensive, but cute shelf and came across this one, sold by Furinno.

If you would like to see my video where I actually build it, click here.

The stand contains five shelves, which can hold fifteen pounds each. The directions do recommend that heavier items should be placed on the lower shelves. It also came with a cable tie and nail, to nail the stand on the wall. When I was reading the Amazon reviews, people said that when they place the stand on carpet, it isn’t too stable so the cable tie comes in handy. I was setting mine on the tile of my bathroom floor, so I didn’t need the cable tie.

I chose the beech shelves with the white poles/legs. They do have a variety of colors, so if you don’t like what I choose, there are more options for you. Also, note that the poles are plastic.

It was fairly easy to set up. If you do purchase this, be sure that you use the shelve with the four-holes as the bottom and not the others (only one has four-holes). It took me about twenty minutes. I will say, the holes on the shelves are circular, while the poles are more oval, so it was difficult trying to push and turn them in there, but I got it eventually.

Overall, I spend about $19 on this stand and I’m happy with what I received. It fits the look of my bathroom perfectly. The style of this stand is perfect for corners, so if you need to fill up a corner whether it’s in your living room or bathroom, this may be for you.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments! Thanks for reading!

THE BIG CHOP!

Hello everyone!

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I just wanted to share an update about myself that I’m excited about. I did the big chop, chopping off 10 inches of hair. I know it may not seem like such a big deal, but I’ve had really long hair ever since I was young. One day I just felt spontaneous and took my butt to Great Clips and asked her to chop it off.

It’s a new and fun change, and just reminded me that we worry about the smallest things. I’m not sure why I was so nervous, maybe because I cared about what people thought, but that’s totally out the window.

I just wanted to share this update with you guys, just in case someone needed a little push to do something they’ve been itching to do!

Hope you guys enjoyed!

Fun Purple Night Out Look

Hello everyone!

I have a fun glittery and purple look for you guys today! I felt a little burned out from work yesterday, and then I looked at my makeup and felt really creative. Creating new looks really helps lessen my stress and I love doing it!

So without further ado, here’s the look. It’s pretty simple actually. I used three different shades of purple eyeshadows, a gold liner, and a white pencil liner.

I used two palette’s, the Makeup Revolution palette and the Sweet Peach palette from Too-Face.

First, from the Makeup Revolution palette, I used the lightest shade of purple on my inner corners. Then, I took the purple shade next to it and swept it across the rest of my lids.

 

For the outer corners, I took a little of the dark purple from the Sweet Peach palette, and carefully blended that out.


I created a simple wing with my gold glitter eyeliner for NYX. Then, I finished the look off with lining my water liner with white pencil liner from NYX.


I hope you guys enjoyed this look! Thanks for reading!

Labor Day OOTD

Hello everyone! 

I hope you’re all having a wonderful Labor Day weekend! I’ve been going to different parks and walking a variety of trails…in white pants…

I wanted to share my Labor Day outfit with you guys! I purchased the top and bottom from my local Versona, for less than $26! They were both in the sale section! I love finding inexpensive, cute pieces.

I purchased white stretchy pants and a navy tank. I paired the outfit with two different shoes, heels and flats! I hope you guys enjoy!

Female Side-Burn Love

Hello everyone!

Hope you’re all having an amazing start of the week so far! Today, I have something a little different I wanted to talk about. It’s sideburns.

At my job, a customer told me I should get my sideburns waxed. Mind you, we weren’t having a conversation about that at all. She just randomly said it, and it made me feel insecure, like middle-school all over again.

But that feeling only lasted for a second, because I remembered that I had waxed them back in middle school, and had absolutely hated it. So that’s what I told her, and she said that I should still think about it. She did it and it changed her life, apparently. Just letting you guys know, this is a white, blonde woman telling this to me. I’m a medium-tan olive complexion, with black hair.

That interaction really irked me. I don’t really like when people you don’t know try and tell you what to do, you know what I mean.

Anyway, back on topic. Female sideburns. Now it’s 2017, a great time for female hair growth. The brows, lashes, legs, pits, so why can’t  sideburns be on that list too? Well guess what, they’re on mine.

I used to feel really ugly back in my younger days, surrounded by gorgeous blonde girls, who virtually had no hair. When I started wearing makeup, was when I noticed my sideburns.

I begged my mom to let me wax them, and let me tell you, worst experience ever! I can stand the pain because I used to get my eyebrows waxed, (threaded now). But, the aftermath was the worst. I had little, irritated, red bumps and the hair started growing back coarse. It was more obvious when they were growing back because it was like black dots on my face. Super itchy and annoying, and makeup couldn’t cover it.

Eventually, I learned to accept and actually like my sideburns. Honestly, I looked weird without them.

And, it made me feel better to know that many of my favorite celebrities also loved their sideburns. Like Aishwarya Rai and Alia Bhatt, (pictured below), two really great Bollywood actresses.

 

If you want to get rid of your sideburns, go for it. What I want you to take away from this post, is do it because you want to, not because some judgmental person put it into your head. Also, be prepared and exfoliate so you don’t get those nasty red bumps like I did.

I’d love to know your thoughts on this! Thanks so much for reading!
