Three easy makeup looks and OOTD’s- Summer 2017

Hi everyone,

Today, as summer is pretty much over, I wanted to share three of my favorite outfits and makeup looks from summer 2017. I’ve done a couple of these previously and I really enjoy them. So the first look is from July and I’m still so in love with it, I don’t know where the shorts are from as they were a gift but the necklace I bought at Forever 21 ages ago.

Ootds1

Ootds4

So, starting with my face and after going through my morning routine, I started with my foundation, which I am out of but I’m going on a little shop tomorrow to pick up another, I use the L’Oreal Paris true match super-blendable foundation in the shade N2, Classic Ivory. To go with that I use the matching L’Oreal true match concealer in N 1-2-3, Fair/Light and I top that with the e.l.f. HD Powder in Sheer and use an e.l.f. powder brush to apply. I’m almost out of that too, but I ordered the Tarte Amazonian Clay finishing powder so I’ll let you know what I think of that. As for my bronzer I use the bronzer in the e.l.f. blush palette in light and the blush I used is the blush from the palette on the right in the bottom left corner. And finishing off my face I use the Urban Decay Afterglow 8 hour powder highlighter in Sin, still my favorite highlighter definitely recommend it and I apply that with the e.l.f. fan brush.

Ootds6

Moving on to eyes, I went to one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes, the e.l.f. Everyday Smoky palette. I used the two brown shades in the middle, I applied the lighter brown with a Bare Escentuals eyeshadow brush and blended the darker brown with the Skone blending brush and used another brush to apply a light shimmer, third from the left, to the inner corner of my eyes and under my brows. Mascara wise I used my trusty Maybelline Falsies Volum Express and Maybelline Great Lash and using an angle brush, I filled in my brows using Too Faced Up in Smoke. And I finished the look with a Too Faced Melted Matte lipstick, which are some of my favorite lipsticks, in the shade Queen B.

My second look is from July 4th and I always love doing a festive look.

Ootds2

Ootds4

Face wise I kept everything the same as my last look.

Ootds7

For my eyes I used Smolder from the Too Faced Smokey Eye palette and blended it out and used White Lie in the inner corner of my eyes and under my brows. The eyeliner I used is one of my favorites, I’ve talked about it many times, and it’s the EM Cosmetics Illustrative Eyeliner with a Brush Tip. The Falsies and Great Lash for my lashes and Up in Smoke for my brows. And of course I had to do a red lip, so I used the Too Faced Melted Matte in Lady Balls. This is hands down one of my favorite red lipsticks.

And my last look is actually from yesterday and not technically an OOTD. But I was wearing dark skinny jeans and a Ramones shirt.

Ootds3

Ootds5

For this look I did use a couple of different products. In addition to my normal concealer I used the YADAH Silky Fit Concealer BB Power Brightening in Light Beige, this gives great coverage and I definitely recommend it, and I apply that with a Micro Mini Beauty Blender. I also used the Firma Beauty 103 Angled Contour Brush. It’s a great size and it’s one of the softest brushes I own. And the final thing I changed was my blush. This time I used the Balm, Balm Springs blush in the shade In Full Swing.

Ootds8

This look is something I don’t normally do and I didn’t know how it would look on me but I ended up really liking it and I already know a couple of things I want to do different next time to enhance it. For this I used the Hikari Cosmetics cream pigment in Honey Dew. I had used this as a highlight shade but not as a base, but it’s very pigmented and the color payoff is great. I then used White Lie on the inner corner and under my brows. The eyeliner I used is Seraphine Botanicals Liquid Coal Waterproof Liquid Liner. The Falsies and Great Lash on my lashes and one of my favorite lipsticks, the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème in 246, Slow Burn. I really like the formulation of the Marc Jacobs lipsticks and they last, which is a major plus.

That about wraps it up for this post. Like I said, I really enjoy doing these posts so I’ll probably do another for fall.

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

Simple and delicious taco soup

Hi everyone,

The seasons are starting to change and fall is upon us and one of the things that means is me making my favorite soups. There is nothing more cozy on a fall or winter day than a bowl of soup so today I wanted to share one of my all time favorite soup recipes. This one is for taco soup and it’s absolutely delicious.

What you need:

1 pound of ground beef

1 package of smoked sausage

1 onion

1 can of kidney beans

1 can of black beans

1 can of pinto beans

1 can of whole kernel corn

1 can of diced tomatoes

1 can of chicken broth

2 1/2 cups of water

1 package of taco seasoning

Make sure you drain all of the cans except for the tomatoes

What you do:

Take the sausage and cut it into 1/2 inch cubes and chop the onion. Then put a pan, 4-5 quart size, over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes and add in the sausage and onion. Stir it occasionally until the sausage is lightly browned.

Put in all of the remaining ingredients, stir to incorporate and bring to a boil. Once brought to a boil cover and reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir occasionally and cook for 15 minutes.

Ladle into bowls and top with your favorite toppings. I like to top mine with sour cream, grated cheese, green onions and crushed tortilla chips.

That about wraps it up for this post if any of you guys make this soup tweet me a picture or tag me on Instagram. And if you guys have any amazing soup recipes let me know.

Until next time, have fun cooking and enjoy the changing seasons :).

August favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Monday, I hope you all had a great weekend! As August is almost over, I thought today would be the perfect day to do my favorites for the month. So starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my August Glam Bag and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it down below. My first favorite is the bag itself, there were three possible bags and this one was definitely my favorite. I love the colors, the tassel and the fact that it says Peace, Love, Lipstick. That’s a great motto.

AGF2

Next we have the Seraphine Botanicals Liquid Coal Waterproof Liquid Liner. I’ve worn it a couple of times, including today, and I really like it. The tip is more pen like and you get a nice line, definitely check it out if you’re looking for a new eyeliner.

AGGB6

Moving on, we have the YADAH Silky Fit Concealer BB Power Brightening in the color Light Beige. I bloody love this, it’s 100% one of the best things I’ve gotten in a Glam Bag and probably one of my favorite products I’ve put on my face. It’s semi matte, hides everything and is an SPF. Highly, highly recommend it.

AGGB4

And my last Glam Bag favorite is the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with red clay. This stuff is honestly great, it’s supposed to remove excess oils, purify and unclog pores and it does what it says on the tin. My skin feels and look great after I use it and my love for First Aid Beauty is continuing to grow.

AGGB3

Now on to two non Glam Bag beauty favorites. The first is a micro mini beauty blender, I bought this at Sephora after I got the BB concealer because I wanted something to apply it with that wasn’t a brush. And I’ve been loving it.

And my last beauty favorite is the Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo. I’ve been looking for a really good dry shampoo forever. I’ve tried a few different here and there and this has definitely been the favorite so far so I think I’m going to stick with it. It doesn’t create a bunch of buildup and it smells absolutely amazing.

AGF1

Moving on, my next favorite is baking. Recently the last season of the Great British Bake Off finally came to America and I’m so glad it did because I’m totally addicted. But it definitely made me excited for fall/ winter and baking so I got a jump start and made banana bread, I did post the recipe and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it down below. But I honestly can’t wait to do some more baking.

My second to last favorite is a YouTube favorite. You guys know how much I love Robbie Williams, he’s got an album of songs that didn’t make previous albums coming out soon, it’s called Under The Radar Vol. 2. But while he’s on tour he’s releasing vlogs of tour life, called Vloggie Williams, leading up to the release of the album on his YouTube channel. I personally love watching vlogs so I think this is great and I’ve been enjoying it.

And my last favorite is a song favorite and it’s Days Like This by Van Morrison. I don’t usually listen to Van Morrison, but this song came up on one of my Pandora channels and I instantly fell in love with it. It’s truly a great song and if you haven’t heard it definitely give it a listen.

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

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you’ve had an amazing August :).
