Summer and other bits haul

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing a haul. Over the past month/month and a half I’ve been doing a little shopping and picked up some fun bits and pieces that I’m excited about, so let’s get into it.

Starting with fashion, spring in the Pacific Northwest has been very cold and rainy it’s basically an extension of winter with a small handful of nice days thrown in so far. So when I do go shopping I’ve been buying for mainly summer and the first thing I bought is a black and white polka dot dress from H&M. If I can find a link for this and any other item I will put down below. I don’t normally wear a lot of dresses, I have one in my wardrobe that I really love to wear in the summer and I have a couple for dressier occasions, but that’s about it. But when I saw this one I really liked it so I went for it and I’m glad I did. The fit is fantastic and it’s one of those dresses that is super versatile. It can easily be worn as is, dressed up or dressed down.


Next I went to Forever 21 where I picked up two things and the first is a pair of shorts. Recently I’ve really been liking floral patterns and one of the things I like about these shorts is the pattern isn’t overwhelming.


And the other thing I picked up is a pair of white with black polka dot flip flops. I wear a lot of flip flops during the summer so I’m always buying new pairs.


Moving on to beauty, you guys know how the e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Carpet is one of my favorites, well, I went to put mine on last week and it broke. Having a lipstick break is always an inconvenience so I picked up another one.



The last beauty item I purchased is the Bath and Body Works Pineapple Colada Gentle Exfoliating Hand Soap with Monoi Oil. I cannot even tell you how good this smells, it’s the perfect summer smell. I hadn’t really looked into the Bath and Body Works hand soaps before but I definitely recommend them.


Second to last we have two practical things, both from Amazon. The first is an Anker phone charging cable. This is just the basic three foot cable, but Anker is a great brand for all cables/cords or anything else you might need.

And the second item is a wallet. I had my old wallet forever and kept saying that I was going to get a new one but never did. It finally quit and I couldn’t keep it closed. I found this one kind of by accident but it’s absolutely perfect. It’s turquoise with a gold bow and gold hardware and it has a ton of room on the inside.


And lastly we have the thing that I’m probably the most excited about in this whole haul. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but one of my hobbies is coin/currency collecting and I’m always on the lookout for new things to add to my collection. I was on Etsy looking for a birthday present for my dad and I came across this shop called Coin Corner and was immediately interested. I ended up finding a present for my dad, I got him a wheat penny from his birth year, and I found a steel penny from 1943 which I knew I had to have. I knew steel pennies existed but I had never seen or held one, so I did buy it and I’m so happy with it. I think it’s the coolest thing.



That about wraps it up for this post, I always like doing hauls so look out for more of them in the future.

Until next time, have fun shopping and I can’t wait for warmer weather :).

Four easy makeup looks and OOTD’s- March-April 2018

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing one of my favorite posts, four of my recent makeup looks and the outfits that went with them. Normally I would do three, but I couldn’t decide between two of them so I added them both. And with that being said, let’s get into it.

The first look is from St. Patrick’s Day. Outfit wise I was wearing a blue and green plaid shirt with a black, cami style bodysuit underneath and a pair of dark wash skinny jeans. I can’t remember where the shirt is from, I’ve had it for a little while, but the bodysuit is from Forever 21 and I think the jeans are from Macy’s but I’ve had them forever.



Starting with my face, after I do my morning routine I start with my foundation, which is the L’Oreal Paris true match super-blendable foundation in the shade N2, Classic Ivory. With that I use the matching concealer in N 1-2-3 Fair/Light and on the spots I want heavier coverage the YADAH Silky Fit Concealer BB Power Brightening in Light Beige and I blend that in with a Micro Mini Beauty Blender. I top all of that with the Tarte Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder and apply that with the e.l.f. powder brush. Bronzer wise I use the bronzer in the e.l.f. blush palette in light, top right in the palette on the left, I used the Firma Beauty 103 Angled Contour brush to apply and the blush I used is the one on the bottom left from the palette on the right and to finish off my face I used the Dashing Through The Glow highlighter from the Too Faced Super Fun Night palette which is from the Too Faced Best Year Ever makeup collection. And I use an e.l.f. fan brush to apply that.


Moving on to eyes, I went with a simple brown shadow look. I really like to wear brown eyeshadows, I have green eyes and it tends to make them pop. For the shadow I went to the Too Faced Natural Beauty palette and picked Sleigh My Name. It’s a nice medium/dark brown with a bit of a shimmer. I applied that with a Bare Escentuals eyeshadow brush and I blended it out with a Skone Cosmetics blending brush. In the inner corner of my eyes and under my brows I used Angelic from the same palette. Mascara wise, I used Too Faced Better Than Sex, it’s one of my absolute favorite mascaras. Using an angled brush, I filled in my eyebrows with Too Faced Up in Smoke and I finished the whole look off with the Sephora Collection Rouge Matte Lipstick in Rebel Chic.

My second look is one that I wouldn’t normally add because it’s filtered but I really like it and the vintage feel it has. For the OOTD part of this I was wearing a white scoop neck shirt, which I believe is from Forever 21, the necklace I’m wearing is also from Forever 21, it’s a gold chain. I was also wearing really light washing skinny jeans, which are from Kohl’s.



For my face, everything is the same as the last look.


I really like to play around with gold shadows, so this is one of my favorite looks. For the base shadow I used the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color in Rose Gold, not only is this shadow gorgeous but it’s highly pigmented. On top of that, mostly in the crease, I used a darker gold and blended it with my finger. In the inner corner and under my brows I used Angelic. The eyeliner that I used was the Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen in BlackNoir. The mascara is Essence Cosmetics I Love Crazy Volume in Deep Black, this is a great mascara it makes your lashes look really thick and defined. As always I filled in my brows with Up in Smoke and finished it all off with one of my favorite liquid lipsticks, the Caked Makeup Lip Fondant in Low Key. It smells like cake batter.

My second to last look is from Opening Day, one of my favorite days in March. My jersey is from the Mariners Team Store and my jeans are new and they are from Kohl’s.



I changed up the blush in this look and the one I used is the Seraphine Botanicals Lychee + Gold Healthy Glow Rose-Gold Blush.


This is a really simple look. Eyeshadow is from the Too Faced palette on the far left, it’s this shimmery emerald shadow and I only wear it a couple times a year and Opening Day is one of those days. It is really pretty though. I put White Lie in the inner corner and under my brows, used the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara on my lashes and Up in Smoke for my brows. And finally I used the MDMflow Liquid Matte Lipstick in Retro.

And my last look is from Easter. This is a better look at the new jeans I was talking about and the shirt is also new and it’s from Buckle. I love the pattern and the bell sleeves and it’s open in the back which is a great surprise when you turn around.



For this look I went back to how I normally do my face, but I did make a change to my morning routine, I did it with the last look to and I added in the Bobbi Brown Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm. You put it on before you do your makeup and it illuminates your skin and gives it an extra oomph.


For this look I wanted something light and springy and I think I achieved that, I’m really happy with the way it came out. For the shadow itself I used the Hikari Cosmetics Cream Pigment in Honey Dew. It’s a gorgeous light pink and it is highly pigmented. I used Angelic in the inner corner and under my brows, the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black, the Essence Cosmetics mascara on my lashes and Up in Smoke on my brows. And to top it all off I used the EM Cosmetics Infinite Lip Cloud in Rose Nude.

That about wraps it up for this post, I really like doing posts like this, so look out for more in the future.

Until next time, have fun with your looks and take as many OOTD pictures as possible :).

January favorites

Hi everyone,

As today is January 30th, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my January favorites. I have a pretty good range of items so lets get into it.

Starting with beauty, I didn’t really try out a whole lot of new products this month so I only have two things, one actual product and one honorable mention. The actual item is the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. I ordered two of these, one in Champagne and the other in Natural, and the one I’m using right now is Champagne. But these are probably one of my favorite lip products I’ve ever used. Not only do they smell good, but they are incredibly moisturizing and they make my lips so soft. I highly recommend them. And my honorable mention is the Bite Beauty Sephora Insider birthday gift. I talked about that recently so I’ll leave a link to that post down below.


Moving on to fashion, we have a pair of Fabletics leggings. I bought these recently and have since worn them a couple of times and I really like them. The fit is great and I love the pattern.


Next up I have an app favorite and it’s Homescapes. I’ve been seeing this app everywhere for a while and a few of my friends have it so the other night when I couldn’t fall asleep I downloaded it and I love it. It didn’t help me with falling asleep because I was hooked and now I understand why it’s so popular.

Since I’m on the subject of apps, I know I mentioned Poshmark a little while ago, still loving it, and yesterday I added a bunch of new items to my closet. I’m KyraSage18 for anyone interested :).

From apps we go to TV shows, I don’t watch a whole lot of TV but this month I’ve really been loving season two of Better Late Than Never. If you’ve never watched it stars William Shatner, Henry Winkler, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and Jeff Dye and they go on adventures all over the world. In my opinion it’s one of the funniest shows, nothing makes me cry laugh like this show but there are also some really endearing moments. And I definitely recommend checking it out.

My second to last favorite is IMSA. Their season just started with the 24 of Daytona, one of my favorite races, and it was a great race. Besides drag racing, IMSA is my favorite series so I’m happy it’s back.

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s the song The Core by Eric Clapton. You guys know how much I love EC, he’s one of my favorites. This song is one that I heard a long time ago, really liked and then never really did anything about, didn’t buy it from iTunes or anything like that. Then last week I saw a video of Clapton playing it during a concert and it reminded me just how much I love it. It’s from the Slowhand album, which is an album I think people tend to forget about because it’s an earlier album but it has some of my favorite songs on it. Definitely check out the song and the album if you haven’t listened to either.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what you guys loved this month.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great January :).

Mini haul

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing a mini haul. I’ve picked up a few things over the past couple of weeks and I thought today would be the perfect day to show you guys, so let’s get into it.

To start I’m going to talk about a couple of beauty bits. I was in Sephora last week just browsing, famous last words when in Sephora, and I saw that they had my favorite pore strips so I picked up a couple. They’re the Sephora Charcoal nose strips and in my opinion they are the best. I highly recommend them.


The next thing I picked up in Sephora was two of the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Masks. One in Champagne and the other in Natural. I had to order these online because my local Sephora was sold out and I’m not surprised in the least. These have quickly become one of my favorite things to put on my lips. They are incredibly hydrating and they make your lips really soft and smooth.

And the last thing I picked up from Sephora was my Beauty Insider birthday gift. My birthday is in two days, and this was a great first birthday gift to get. There were a couple to choose from and I chose this Bite Beauty set. I love Bite Beauty, I think their lipsticks are fantastic.


You get three products in this box and the first is the Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glace. This is a dusty mauve shade and I love it, it’s really pretty on.


The next thing is an Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Chai. This is a brown shade but it’s more of a mauvey brown. The other Amuse Bouche Lipstick I have is a brown and they do brown shades really well.



And the last thing in this box is a double Agave Lip Balm and Agave Lip Scrub. I have yet to try either of these, but I’m excited to and I’ll let you know what I think.


The last beauty related item is a Bath and Body Works fragrance and it’s Fresh Sparkling Snow. I actually picked this up at the end of December, kind of forgot about it and found it when I was organizing a bunch of different beauty products at the beginning of the year. The smell of this is iced pear, frozen melon and frosted musk. It’s a very fresh scent with just the slightest hint of sweetness. I’m not a fan of overly/sickly sweet smells and this is perfect.


And the last item in this haul is a pair of workout pants. Usually when I buy workout clothes I go with Nike or Under Armour, but my mom is always raving about Fabletics so I decided to check them out. The leggings I bought are the Salar Printed Powerhold leggings. The design is called blurred floral and they have black flowers with a black, white and bluish/purple background and I really like the way these fit. I definitely recommend Fabletics if you’re shopping for new workout clothes.


That about wraps it up for this post, I always like doing hauls so look out for more in the future.

Until next time, I hope you’re having a good January and what fun things have you guys bought this month? 🙂

December favorites/2017 wrap up

Hi everyone,

Today, as we are in the last couple days of December and of 2017, I thought it would be the perfect day to do my December favorites and wrap up this year. So, starting with beauty and I have a couple of favorites from my December Glam Bag, if you haven’t read that post I’ll link it below, and the first is the bag itself. It’s silver with a band of silver sparkles around the top and the inside as well as the zipper is aqua and I love it. Not only is it wintery, but it’s so my colors.


My next Glam Bag favorite is the Essence Cosmetics I Love Crazy Volume Mascara in Deep Black. I’ve worn this a couple of times and I really like it. It does give my lashes volume and thickness.


And my last Glam Bag favorite is the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Legendary. I’ve always liked the Smashbox lipsticks and this one is no different. It’s a gorgeous red, it’s long lasting and it doesn’t dry out your lips like some red lipsticks can do. I definitely recommend it.


I want to make a note quickly and say that I haven’t yet had a chance to try out the Purlisse sheet masks, but I will let you know what I think once I have.

Next up I’m going to talk about a few of the things that I got for Christmas and for that I’ll start with my stocking. The first thing I pulled out of my stocking was a set of four gold rings from H&M. I love rings and these are the perfect simple accessory.


The next thing was a full sized Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar 24 hour moisture Ultra Shea body cream. This is one of my favorite scents from Bath and Body Works and probably my favorite lotion.


The rest of my stocking was full of a loofa, some toiletries (toothpaste, makeup wipes, etc) and candy.

Moving on to some of my presents, there are a few that I wanted to mention and the first is a curling iron. I was in desperate need of a medium sized curling iron, I have one with a small barrel and one with a really big barrel, but I was lacking some middle ground so this is perfect. It’s a Conair Instant Heat curling iron with a 1 1/4 barrel. I’ve always liked  Conair because I have a lot of hair and it’s thick and these get really hot and create nice curls.


Next up is one of my favorite gifts I received and it’s the Too Faced Best Year Ever collection. You guys know how much I love Too Faced and I’m so in love with this. It comes in a little zip up case that is gold with pink stripes on the outside and it says “I have way more makeup at home” on the front.


When you open it you see black and white stripes and the three palettes are stacked on one another and there is a mini Better Than Sex mascara on the top. It also comes with a little booklet that has four different looks and how to create them.


Like I said, there’s three palettes and they are I Believe in Pink, Natural Beauty and Super Fun Night.


I Believe in Pink has six eyeshadows ranging from super light pink to purple with a blush in the shade Pink Poinsettia. I have over the last three days worn at least one color from each palette and these shadows are very pigmented and look fantastic on.


Natural Beauty has six eyeshadows in the gold and brown shades and a bronzer in Warm My Heart.


And Super Fun Night has six eyeshadows in a mix of different colors and a highlighter in Dashing Through The Glow.


I will be doing a more in depth post on the Best Year Ever in the new year, so look out for that.

And the last beauty related thing is actually a sample that I got with the Too Faced collection. It was a small bottle of the Atelier Mandarine Glaciale perfume. I’m going to be honest with you guys, the second I smelled it I was in love. It has mandarin, ginger and vetiver and is a really fresh and warming scent. It also reminds me of something from when I younger, but I can’t remember what it is. I did order a full size bottle of this and it is on the pricier side but Sephora offers it in at least two sets that I’ve seen that have other Atelier scents.

I have a couple of clothing favorites, this Christmas was very sports heavy for my family and none of us were mad about it. When it comes to college football USC is my team and I was lacking in things to wear on game day but now that’s not the case. First up is a racerback ombre tank top. Ignore the wrinkles, I had it folded. But I love a tank top and can’t wait to wear this.


Next we have a white V-neck t-shirt that says Fight On! which is the name of the USC fight song. What I like about this shirt is it’s incredibly soft and it’s slightly on the baggy side, not overly but I tried it on and it looks great tucked into jeans.


And finally we have a black and gray hoodie. I don’t think I’ve taken this off since I got it, it’s fleece lined on the inside and it does a great job keeping me warm.


USC plays Ohio State tomorrow in the Cotton Bowl and I think it’s going to be a great game. Go Trojans!

And my last couple of favorites are music favorites. The first is the Ed Sheeran song Perfect. Everyone has been talking about this song recently and with good reason, it’s fantastic. If you somehow haven’t heard it yet, go and listen to it.

The last two are from Robbie Williams Under The Radar Vol. 2 album, which came out recently and my two favorites from this album are Bambi and 9 To 5. Bambi is one of my favorite songs of 2017, it’s a fun and very Robbie Williams. And I love the fact that he covered 9 to 5, if you like the original version of the song then you’ll like this one.

That about wraps it up for this post and I want to take a minute and thank you guys for reading, liking and commenting this year. 2017 was a crazy year and I can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring.

Until next time, I hope you all had a great December and 2017 and I appreciate every one of you :).

Blogmas Day 22: What’s in my bag; winter edition

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day 22! Today I’m going to be doing a What’s In My Bag; Winter Edition. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done one of these and I think they’re quite fun, so let’s get into it.

This is the bag I’m currently using. It’s from H&M, it has a shoulder strap, which is detachable, plus the two handles on top. The main compartment is in the middle and on each side of that is a large compartment with a gold zipper on top. There is another smaller zip pocket on the inside and two more small pockets. One of my favorite things about this bag is the gold hardware, and that includes four studs on the bottom. And one of the standout things to me was the black lining along the outer edge of the bag. I think the color is officially called Light Taupe and if you can still get this bag, I believe it also comes in black and one other color, maybe white but I’m not 100% sure.


Starting with beauty, I have a couple things that I have to have in my bag during the winter months. The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream and Vanilla Softlips are two things I know I’ve mentioned many times but I do love them. And the other is the Bath and Body Works Winter White Woods hand sanitizer. I love this scent, it’s very wintery but without being overly sweet and in your face. It almost has a masculine quality to it and those scents can be quite refreshing. I always have lotion and hand sanitizer in my bag, but the smells change as the seasons go on.



Moving on, I have a couple of fashion items. The first is a pair of gloves. I keep a black pair on me, even though I have other colors, because these are the only pair I have that I don’t have to take off to use my phone.


Next we have a hat, because even though I have a lot of hair my head does get cold and they say you lose most of your body heat out of your head. I think this hat is from Forever 21 and it really does go with pretty much everything.


Next I have a pair of sunglasses. I wear sunglasses year round and this time of year the winter sun is incredibly bright and I’d rather not be blinded whilst I’m driving. My sunglass style of choice is aviators. I think they suit my face the best, I have multiple pairs and this pair is from H&M.


And lastly I have a scarf, well two scarves. I’ve been wearing a scarf practically everyday, it’s been that cold. I have two in my bag because the other day I had an outfit change and that included a scarf change. I don’t know where this first one is from, it was a gift, but I love it. It’s on the thicker side, it is an infinity scarf which is my preferred style and it’s colors I love.


The second scarf is one of my favorites, it’s a simple gray, also infinity style, and it’s a lighter fabric so you can really wear it any time of year. And this one is from Fred Meyer.


And finally we have a couple of random items. The first is a choker. It’s not uncommon for me to have some sort of necklace in my bag, but I don’t typically wear chokers. This is new, and I wanted something more on the festive side to wear and when I saw this I thought it was perfect. It’s black with a gold star and I love the simplicity.


Second to last I have a pack of hand warmers. I don’t always have particularly cold hands, but these are so great to have and I highly recommend having them around.


And lastly, I have a couple of snacks. I always have some sort of snack in my bag, usually on the healthier side, but these are not. These are Ghiradelli squares. One is Peppermint Bark and the other is Eggnog. Two flavors I love and they are actually quite good.


That about wraps it up for this post, what do you guys keep in your handbags during winter?

Until next time, I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas and I hope you guys are enjoying Blogmas :).
