When the package arrived the palette was shattered and I was disappointed. This was my first time purchasing anything from ColourPop. After an email exchange they later sent me a replacement which made me feel thrilled – and nervous. I hoped the replacement would come in good condition – and it did! (Thanks ColourPop for the great customer service!)
Deja Vu is a brownish/nude-y color that is fun to wear on the lips. But the Topaz palette is so gorgeous. Very pigmented and definitely brings that glow. The bronzer and highlighter together are a match-made in heaven. Can’t wait to wear everything for my next dinner date. 😉

My obsession with Smith & Cult is not dying any time soon. It’s safe to say that I’m becoming even more obsessed. This summer I was on the lookout for a seafoam green nail polish. I kept searching for OPI Mermaid Tears but couldn’t find it anywhere. I then searched for an alternative, and although this isn’t the same shade as the OPI color, Bitter Buddhist is exactly what I had my mind on. Plus it looks awesome on your toes! The application was seamless as per usual.

I’m sure that I’ve mentioned how much I love multipurpose products. Case in point: Bite Beauty Multistick. This handy little stick can be used on your lips, cheeks, and on eyes. This product has been all the rage on social media, and with over 10 colors to choose from I can see why everyone is flocking to get their hands on them. I tried three colors: Macaroon, Cocoa, and Blondie.
Macaroon was definitely may favorite. With a rosy pink color I can see myself wearing this shade in all three places, my lips, cheeks and eyes. This color looks great on the cheeks for a flushed look. Cocoa is a dark brown color which I don’t think I can pull off on the lips but it can possibly work to contour. Blondie is a nude-y color that I think looks great on the eyes.
The great thing about these multisticks is the satin finish. It goes on so smooth when you apply which is especially important if you want to apply to the cheeks and eyelids-it makes blending so much easier. I also love how compact they are and that I can stash these anywhere without them taking up too much space.
I absolutely want to try other colors and I recommend this to anyone who loves products that target more than one area. Take a peek at the swatches below:
L to R: Macaroon, Cocoa, Blondie

Summer is the perfect time to head out to Long Island for the weekend. We drove to Montauk, which is at the eastern end of the island, for some exploring. We decided to check out the Montauk Lighthouse—the first lighthouse in New York State and the fourth oldest in the U.S. Being here felt like that Gossip Girl episode when the gang is in the Hamptons. Très chic!

Once the weather starts getting warmer, I love playing around with different nail colors. One of my favorite nail polish brands is Smith & Cult. Their colors are so unique, the formula is amazing, and the color is long lasting. You can never go wrong with white once summer rolls around. Plus wearing white looks so good when your skin is tanned.
The color above is Regret The Moon and it’s a great shade of white (Net A Porter’s photos don’t quite capture the color). Some white polishes can be super streaky making it hard to apply to the nails. The formula on this polish is so smooth. No streaks or bubbles. Regret The Moon is not such a bright white that ends up looking too heavy. It’s the perfect balance and shade. To achieve the opacity above I used two coats.
I’m honestly so obsessed with this brand and would like to build my collection of all their polishes. The packaging is so beautiful, chic, and luxe. I already purchased this seafoam green color from Net A Porter, and I can’t wait to try it and upload swatches for you all. And in case you missed it, here is my post on Smith & Cult’s Fauntleroy, a delicate lavender. The post is almost reaching 200 views! Thank you for reading!

As you may already know, Glossier is one of my favorite beauty brands. Their packaging and product marketing is top notch. I love that they’re constantly releasing new products, and this rose scented version of their Balm Dotcom is so good.
I’m personally a big fan of their original balm but little by little I am becoming more obsessed with products infused with roses. This rose version smells so delicate and fresh. The smell is almost sweet. I love it because it acts just like the regular balm, but the scent makes the product a lot cooler. Most of the time I use it on my lips (I love how long lasting it is!) but you can apply anywhere you feel needs some moisture. It doesn’t leave my lips shiny or sticky and in case you’re wondering it doesn’t leave a tint or color on your lips.
If you haven’t tried Glossier I highly recommend this balm, as well as the rest of the balm dotcom range. I think this is the best product from their entire line.
This conditioner worked pretty good, but it does not compare to their original formula, the 3 Minute Miracle Moist Conditioner. I felt like the smooth version wasn’t too long lasting. When I use the moist version my hair remains soft for a lot longer. Aussie products are great because they’re inexpensive and I definitely recommend their 3 minute deep conditioners, but I would recommend the moist one instead. I did a first impression of this conditioner back in 2014, check it out!
Okay this product is an essential for me. I love using this after I cleanse my face and remove my makeup. Another way that I’ve been using it is by spritzing some on a sponge that I use to apply my BB cream or foundation. It makes my skin feel hydrated. This facial spray is infused with aloe, herbs, and rosewater. Plus is only $7! It doesn’t get much better than that. Click here to read a longer review of this mist.

Blazer: H&M | Tee: Zara | Jeans: Zara | Flats: J. Crew Factory
When dressing for the office I always add a blazer. A blazer can absolutely make a casual outfit feel and look a little more dressed up. I love black and white blazers, but right now I’m loving this navy one from H&M. I got it on sale last year and it’s great because it also keeps me warm. I think every woman should have a blazer in her closet; it really makes a difference.
Along with my navy blazer I’m also wearing a striped tee from Zara from their organic cotton line. This tee is so soft and after washing it it remained exactly the same. Yay! And one of my favorite office flats are these by J. Crew. They are super comfortable and I always get compliments when I wear them.
Are you as blazer obsessed as me? What’s your number one closet staple?
