Hello, blog world!
I’ve discovered a lot of new favorites lately, so I thought it would be fun to do a blog post dedicated to them.
Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick, $24, Sephora
My favorite colors are Big Spender (a rose color, pictured above) and Bawse (a deep red). This lipstick is so comfortable to wear that sometimes I forget I’m even wearing anything. It isn’t transferproof, but it is long wearing. I put on my lipstick at 6:45 am and I wear it until 5 pm, sometimes even several hours past that. I only have to do a quick touch up after lunch. It also did great in summer Colorado heat.
Huda Liquid Matte Lipstick, $20, Sephora
This is another one of my favorite lip brands. It’s more liquidy than Smashbox Always On, but it dries quickly and it’s also long-lasting and comfortable to wear. It has a yummy smell, almost like vanilla. I really like Trophy Wife, Icon, and Heartbreaker.
ColourPop Ultra Satin Liquid Lip, $6.50, ColourPop
Okay, can you tell that I have a big thing for lippies?! ColourPop is one of my favorite makeup brands overall. All of their products are highly pigmented and priced beautifully. The Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks are amazing. My favorite colors are Dopey, The Rabbit, Ambush, and Redman.
ColourPop Super Shock Highlighter, $8, ColourPop
I am obsessed with highlighters, especially the ones by ColourPop. One of my favorite colors is Over The Moon (Described on the website as “The cow jumped over the moon to find this sheer opalescent pearl with hot pink and violet glitters”). I feel like a mermaid or a unicorn when I wear it!
Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Large Crossbody, $148, Macy’s
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect crossbody and I finally found it! I don’t really use big purses anymore and I like being hands free. Most of my purses are handbags and shoulder bags. I was looking for a quality purse that wasn’t too big and wasn’t too small. I made it my mission to find one in Colorado earlier this month.
I’m more of a Kate Spade kind of gal and I was bummed that I didn’t find one that I liked at the outlet. I also looked around Coach, but I didn’t find a crossbody there either. I did find the latest Disney collection there though… So that was a win!
I haven’t been really into Michael Kors the past few years, but I felt the urge to pop in their store and look around. When I saw this black crossbody purse I knew it was the one! Since it was at the outlet I was able to snag it for $93 with taxes.
I’ve been using it everyday since I got back from vacation and it’s held up nicely. I love it so much that I also ordered the blush pink color.
Fjallraven Re-Kanken, $90, Zappos
I blame my sister, Jennifer, for getting me hooked on this brand! I just got my first one a few days ago, and I’m already obsessed. They come in a variety of colors and I decided to go with all black. I chose this color because black goes with everything and I love how it looks tactical. This backpack is made with all recycled material and has thoughtfully placed pockets. The bag looks small, but it can carry a lot. I really like the handles at the top and the removable “pad” that’s stored inside. I’m sure you’re like, “huh?! Why is there a foam pad in there?” You can take it out of the bag and sit on it. It’s genius. Sounds way more comfortable to sit on a foam pad than on concrete while watching Fantasmic at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, haha. I’m so excited for my new travel bag!
I eventually want to get another color, maybe a Mini size. The color Slate (a dark grey) is calling my name!
Shooter (TV series) on USA Network
I love this show. I rarely ever rewatch series (that aren’t sitcoms), but this series is that damn good! The cast is phenomenal. It’s about an ex-Marine sniper (Ryan Philippe) that was framed for trying to kill the president. You may even remember that there was a movie called Shooter starring Mark Wahlburg starring in 2007. I finally watched the movie this month! It was really cool to see the similarities and differences between the movie and the first season of the show. There’s also a novel called “Point of Impact” by Stephen Hunter that the movie and series originated from.
Watch Seasons 1 and 2 now on Netflix. Season 3 just started and the season premiere episode was crazy!
