Stop For No One

#NewYearVibes

Good morning beautiful babes! Just needed to share with you some new year feels. 2016 was so incredibly good to me in terms of growing and finding myself. In four short days I can already see where 2017 is taking me. This year is 100 percent about personal growth and kicking some ass. Being kind but not careful. Learning every day but stopping for nothing. There is no such thing as boundaries or ceilings anymore. 

Not at work. Not at home. Not at the gym. Nowhere.  

Take some time this year to motivate yourself to be the best version of you. See what you want and make it happen. Set goals and crush them every day. Don’t put your dreams and goals on hold for anyone else around you that might be trying to bring you down. Stay inspired and rise above. 

“There is nothing enlightened about shrinking  so others don’t feel insecure around you. And as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others”

Show Your Hair And Skin Some Loveย 

#CauseBabyItsColdOutside

Hi everyone !!!! Omgosh I am so happy to be posting and sharing with you my winter hair and  skin care routineโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ’•โ˜ƒ๏ธ I took a break from social media over the holiday so I could fully enjoy my time with my family but i am so excited to be writing and sharing with you beauties again. 

Winter time can be super rough on our skin and hair. The cold weather tends to dry us out and is definitely not a fun time ! Here are some products that I’ve been loving and have been saving me from the harsh winter vibezzzzz.

I started off cleansing my face with the Philosophy Purity One Step Facial Cleanser. I absolutely love this product guys ! It washes away makeup, cleans out pores, and conditions the skin. I would highly highly recommend this if you are in need of a new cleanser๐Ÿ’•

Next up I used some of my exfoliating scrub that was given to me ! This has all kinds of amazing essential oils and natural oils in it and just really cleans out my pores and scrubs away any left over makeup or dirt on my skin. You can find these products on Etsy or go to Lush and grab some ingredients to make them yourself !

After the scrub I decided to apply my new Philosophy Purity Facial Mask. This is a deep cleaning mask that uses sea salt to naturally purify and detoxify the skin. It says on the bottle that marine extracts and vitamin E help skin feel soft and smooth. I can say I truly loved this product and it really made my skin look amazing and feel super hydrated and soft.

 


Next up I wanted to do a sheet mask ! I haven’t done one in so long and since it’s my day off and I am trying to relax I thought why not. This one is the Too Cool For School Egg Cream Mask. I absolutely LOVE this sheet mask guys and it’s seriously so affordable. Collagen and Egg Yolk Extract are supposed to firm up your skin and leave it super hydrated. Obsessssed. Thank you again Jaclyn Hill for the inspo on this one๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

After I was done cleansing and exfoliating I reached for my Philosophy Renewed Hope In a Jar refreshing and refining moisturizer. I put this all over my face and then added a touch of Marula Oil to really hydrate and smooth my skin. 

I cannot tell you how much my face loves me right now. I feel so clean and smooth and hydrated it’s not even funny. This is seriously the best time of the year to hone in and really really take care of your skin. A few other products I used today on my skin and hair are below as well!

I’ve talked about Project Beauty HairGurt before and I will say it again….this product slayssssss. It smells like a strawberry banana smoothie from the islands and leaves my hair looking unbelievably healthy and beautiful. It’s made with probiotics and super foods like quinoa to leave your hair hydrated and rich and amazing. Check. This. Out.


Last but not least is a new lotion I picked up recently that I cannot live without right now ! This is an Ulta Beauty body lotion and let me tell you it is perfection. It’s made with Vitamin E and Shea butter so the formula is super thick and creamy and hydrates the crap out of my skin without leaving it oily. These lotions are super affordable and come in all kinds of amazing scents. Ulta love forever ๐Ÿ’•

That’s all I got for you babes tonight but I am back and I cannotttttt wait to post more throughout the week. I have a Sephora haul coming up that I am so excited to share so stay tuned and as always I hope this gave you some skin and hair inspo !! Love you all very much and I hope you have a fabulous night

Holidays Got You Feeling Rushed?

#TwentyMinuteWorkout

Hi my loves! The holidays can be unbelievably stressful and have us running around like crazy people!! Who has time for a workout between work, holiday parties, friends, family, holiday shopping, wrapping, baking….you get the point! The fact is…everyone has 20 minutes of their day to devote to their health! 
One of my FAVORITE quotes maybe ever is…

“We all have the same hours in the day as Beyoncรฉ” 



And let me tell you….that girl slays. 

And so can you!!


Find a space that suits you and some equipment. Either at the gym with weights or even modify this at home with body weight exercises.

Put 20 mins on a timer



Pick two exercises to alternate. Today I chose push-ups  and Bosu Ball Crunches with 15 lb Dumbbell 



Alternate these two exercises with some form of cardio in between until the timer goes off. The circuit I chose was as follows:

5 push-ups 

30 jumping jacks

8 crunches on bosu ball with dumbbell

30 jumping jacks

5 push-ups 

30 jumping jacks

8 crunches on bosu ball with dumbbell 

Etc… 



By the time I was finished my heart rate was up, I had a major sweat going on, and I had burned a ton of calories. Circuit training is honestly the best ! It combines cardio and weight training so you can skip boring 40 minute sessions on the treadmill and instead blast out a 20 minute circuit that will give you tremendous results. 

Next time you don’t have time in your day for a workout remember two things:

  1. Beyoncรฉ has time
  2. It only takes 20 minutes

Thank you beauties for reading and I hope this workout gave you some inspo to get up and get moving and burn off some of those cookies we all know you’ve been shoving in your face (because I know I have)

Impressions Are Everythingย 


#ImpressionsVanityCo

Good morning and happy Sunday you beautiful humans !! I am so happy to be off from work and relaxing with my family at home. It’s icy and rainy and cold in Philadelphia today so you know what that means ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Slippers. Robe. Candles. Christmas music๐Ÿ˜

Speaking of Christmas I am getting SO excited !! One more week to go๐ŸŒฒโ„๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธ I have so many amazing gifts that I can’t wait for my family and friends to open.  And these next items could be a perfect addition to your gifts AND they are on sale!! Anyway…thanks for stopping by as always. My blog has become such an awesome outlet for me to express myself and to read what you guys think about the topics that I am most interested in. It’s an opportunity to always be learning๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Today I want to share with you guys and gals something I am absolutely so excited to receive in the mail later this week. I’ve been seeing this brand and their products all over social media and I am SOO excited for it to arrive. Yesterday I ordered a bundle from Impressions Vanity Co. This is a legit bomb online only shop that provides makeup mirrors, lighting, tables, organizers, and basically everything a girl with a large and growing makeup collection will eventually need in her life ! They are soooo affordable and right now they are having a HUGE sale so get on over there and get your hands on some products that will change the game for you.

Lighting is so crucial in creating a bomb makeup look and we all know how frustrating it is when we think we did an amazing job and we look in the mirror in our car or at work and we’re like… ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ

I knew I definitely needed a makeup mirror because my IKEA one is literally hanging on by a thread right now. But I also was sooo interested in one of those selfie lights that attaches to your phone. So you already know your girl found the most perfect bundle on their website๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ I ended up picking up these three items in a bundle on sale for $50 and it included free shipping anywhere in the US. The original value for these three items was $109 I believe so the sale was pretty on point. 

This first item is the Touch 2.0 Matte White Dimmable LED Make-up Mirror. Originally priced at $35. This is battery operated and totally portable. You can even dim the lights by pressing its touch sensor on the mirror. I absolutely love the look of this mirror…it is so sleek and clean and will look super pretty in my beauty room!!! 

Next up is the selfie light. Okay guys seriously whoever came up with this is a fuggin genius! I cannot wait to be able to show you guys my makeup looks without going out and spending hundreds of dollars on lighting. This is such a bomb idea and I cannot wait to see how it works. This product is called the GlowMe 2.0 USB Rechargeble LED Selfie Ring Light. Originally priced at $45. 

And last but not least they threw in this adorable matte white compact ! This will be a game changer for touching up makeup at work or on the go! I love this so much and I’m actually quite obsessed with the look of all these products as well. It has 8 LED lights built in to keep your lighting on point anywhere you go. This product also has dimming capabilities which is soo cool!  This item was originally priced at $12.99 

Okay beauties that’s all I got today but listen this sale is only going on for another SIX DAYS!!! If you are interested in any of these products I highly highly suggest getting your butt over to this online store and picking some up while the sales are going on. Nobody got time for full price items let’s be real !!!

As always babies please comment down below and let me know what you think and if you pick some products up please share your story and review with me !! Have a fabulous Sunday. Relax. Revive. Renew. Love you all ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

#ForYourViewingPleasure

 

Hi beauties !

Hope everyone is staying warm if you are in an area where the weather is absolutely sucking !!!

As you can see ^^^^ I’m dreaming of warmer days and jumping off of rando party boats in the middle of nowhere, Mexico. Ugh๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
Anyway! I wanted to share with you my outfit of the day. Today I paired a taupey colored pair of slacks from Express with a forrest green ribbed sweater.ย 

On my feet I have one of my absolute favorite pair of booties that I actually picked up from H&M a few seasons ago.ย 


As for pieces of jewelry you haven’t seen yet…this is one of my ride or die staple pieces. I absolutely love chunky statement necklaces and this is definitely my most favorite one that I own. I got this out of one of my Stitch Fix boxes back when I was subscribed to that. For anyone who doesn’t know what that is it’s actually very awesome. You pay an initial 50 bucks and do a style quiz. You have a personal stylist pick out 5 pieces a month and send them right to your house. If you don’t like them you can mail them back or pay for them to keep them. The more you buy, the bigger discount you get. It’s all adorable boutique stuff and you can always email the stylist if you need certain things or don’t like their picks. I only got rid of it because I was spending way too much money๐Ÿ˜


My handbag of choice today was a recent buy and I am absolutely IN love with it. Long story short: ย My boyfriend is the best ever in the world. Ahhhhh Kate is life. Thanks baby๐Ÿ˜˜


As far as makeup is concerned I legit don’t even know why I post this anymore hahaha Rosalie = cool brown smokey eye with mauvey blush, bronzer, and a nudey brown purple lip. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

By the way I got my hair done yesterday ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ give me all the blonde baby baby.ย 

 
Oh and one last thing….for those who don’t know drake is my absolute KING. He released this song from his new album that should be out in the beginning of 2017. He originally released that it would be out in December but we all know drake likes to tease us. He also said that this next project won’t be an album or a mixtape but more like a playlist that you can listen to on the daily. Ugh so in love ๐Ÿ˜

Okay beauties that’s all I got for you today ! I absolutely love sharing my day with you and hopefully give you some inspo for beauty, cosmetics, and just life in gen๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ love you all and please comment and let me know what you think!

pop some color in your life

#YesLawwwwd

 

Hi beauties !

 
I took yesterday off from posting because I really needed to get my life together. I put on some Christmas music and lit my candles, drank a bunch of coffee and got moving. I cleaned out boxes in my basement, scrubbed my house from top to bottom, did laundry, folded clothes, ironed, prepped my meals for the week, and finished up Christmas decorating on the outside of my house. It seriously looked spotless and beautiful and everything was perfect when I was done.
Such. A. Good. Feeling.

 

But I am ready now to share with you a makeup look I did last week! I decided to do a bold brow, slightly smoky eye, and a pop of pink on my lips. I truly love how it came out and it’s totally wearable whether you are out to lunch with friends, going to work, or even for a date night. Totally versatile.

To achieve this look I used the following :

  1. Benefit Pore Fessional Primer
  2. Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation
  3. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer
  4. Ofra Banana Setting Powder
  5. ABH Brow Wiz
  6. ABH Clear Brow Gel
  7. Jelly Pong Pong Caribbean Sun Bronzer Duo
  8. Make Up Geek Blush in Shade Blind Date
  9. MAC Eyeshadows from Palette Amber Times Nine
  10. Dior It Lash Mascara
  11. MAC Prep and Prime Fix+ Setting Spray
  12. Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Highlighter in Champagne Pop
  13. Smashbox Creamy Lipstick in shade Pretty Social

 

Hope this look gives you beauties some inspo and encourages you to pop some color into your life in these dreary winter days ahead! As always please comment down below and let me know what you think of this look and if you have products to recommend to me๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
