Beauty Professional Review




Hi everyone! Firstly, I just wanted to apologize that I didn't post any outfits this past week. It got a little hectic because of Christmas, so I just decided to pretty much take a few days off and just really enjoy the holiday with my family without stressing over the blog and having to spend hours on the computer editing and writing blog posts. But I am back and today I have a new video for you guys. I recently received a bunch of products from Beauty Professional, so I thought I'd do a little review and let you guys know what I thought of everything!

Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide




With Christmas just a couple of days away, it's time to finish buying all those last minute gifts. So I thought it might be helpful to give you guys some ideas in case you don't really know what to get. Obviously, these aren't things that will please everyone but they're things that I really love and know a lot of people who would also love to receive any of them. I hope you like it!

Picking & Decorating Our Christmas Tree




Hi everyone! Today's video is quite exciting for me because I vlogged one of my favorite things to do during this time of year: picking and decorating a Christmas tree! In case I've never mentioned it before, I absolutely love Christmas. I don't love the Wintertime but this is the one thing I actually look forward to during this season. I not only love the actual day but also the weeks before when everything looks so festive, people are going shopping for presents, and Christmas music is playing on the radio. I just love everything about it and, honestly, I think there's no better place to be than in New York! I always feel like I'm in Home Alone 2, which I'm obsessed with and watch every year (The first one too!). Anyway, I thought I would bring you guys along with me while I picked out my tree and decorated it with my parents. Unfortunately, this year my sisters weren't with us like they usually are, which was a bit sad, but it was still a lot of fun. I hope you guys enjoy the video!

I've been trying to refrain from shopping recently but when Black Friday and Cyber Monday come around, I just can't help myself! So, I bought a few things and they've started to arrive, which is very exciting. That and many other things are what I'll be showing you guys in my November haul! Check it out below.

Thanksgiving Family Trip




Hi everyone! First of all, I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it)! This year was probably my favorite one so far. My family and I decided to go upstate and spend a few days in a cabin on the mountains. It was so beautiful and so fun! I've been wanting to start vlogging more for a while now, so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity for that. I hope you guys enjoy the video!

Fall Favorites




As many of you already know by now, I'm not a fan of the colder seasons, but there are a few things that I do really love in the Fall. So, if you want to see the candle, lip color, clothing item, and many other items that I've been loving this season, then check out the video below!

L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss




In today's video I'm trying out the entire collection of the L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Glosses (aka liquid lipsticks). I was super excited about these because I'm such a huge fan of liquid lipsticks. I love that they're matte and don't come off easily. It's great when you want to go out and eat, drink, etc without having to worry about your lipstick fading and having to touch up all the time. However, some liquid lipsticks can be pretty pricey, so that's why I just had to try these. They're only $5 each or $50 for the entire set (with 16 shades). Such a bargain! So, if you want to see lip swatches of all the colors, plus what I thought of them, then just watch the video below!

Haul: October 2015




Hi guys! First of all, I apologize that this week's video is up late. In case you haven't noticed, I always upload on Sundays but I actually had some lighting issues this past week, so that's why I've only been able to upload a new video today. Anyway, as always, I'm sharing with you guys everything I got during the month of October (which includes some birthday gifts)! It's a little long, so grab a snack and enjoy!

Her Campus College Fashion Week with Milani




So, if you've been following me on Instagram or Snapchat, you probably saw that I attended Her Campus College Fashion Week last Saturday. I was invited to not only watch the show but to also watch the models get their makeup done by Milani Cosmetics. I'm a big fan of Milani because they create amazing quality makeup for an affordable price. In case you aren't familiar with them, they are a cosmetic brand that is inspired by the vibrant colors of the art and culture of Milan, Italy. You can find Milani at drugstores, as well as on milanicosmetics.com. They have a huge variety of products and colors that work on all skin tones. Some of my favorites are their eyeshadows, blushes, and liquid eyeliners! I also can't wait to get my hands on their Amore Matte Lip Cremes (aka liquid lipsticks) because I've heard some amazing things about them! 

For College Fashion Week, the Milani makeup artists did the makeup on all of the models, who are actually college students. The fashion show displayed tons of outfits that are easy for girls to recreate when going to school, going out on the weekend, or even date night. So, to go with that, they had a very soft and natural makeup look with warm, golden eyes (which you guys know I love) and nude lips. This made them look really put together without looking over the top, which is perfect because I think that's how most college students want to look. To see how it turned out, along with a look behind the scenes, check out the pictures below and my mini vlog!

Birthday Wishlist




Since it's October and my birthday is this month on the 28th, I thought that instead of doing a regular monthly wishlist, I'd do a birthday one! You might be thinking "Well, what's the difference?" Basically, in my regular monthly wishlists I try to show you guys things that I came across that specific month. For my birthday wishlist, however, there are many things I've wanted not just the past month, but for a while. There's nothing too different and everything is actually really affordable. They're pretty much things that I'll end up getting myself eventually, but if I did happen to receive any of them as a gift, I'd be one happy birthday girl! The items are listed in no particular order but let's get into it!

Video Diary: Visiting Family in Florida




Hi guys! As you may know, I was in Florida recently and I decided to film my trip! I went with my mom to visit some family that lives in Orlando. My boyfriend also met up with us there, which I was really happy about. Although the flight there was pretty stressful (I am never flying with United ever again), the trip was so much fun and I'm so glad I got to spend time with my aunts, uncles, grandma, and cousins (who are just freaking adorable). I had an amazing time and hope to go back there soon!
