Beauty Recs with Sally Beauty


In my last Sally Beauty post, I offered my custom beauty consultation services to one winner–and that winner was the lovely Elizabeth. My spending limit was $45 so I opted to multitask items: several eyeshadows (suited to her eye color) in one, as well as a gorgeous blush/bronzer combo. I’m loving the “nude everything” trend these days so of course a dusty rose nail color was in order, as was a nude lip pencil. Plus, through the rest of August, you get a free snazzy tote if you spend $45 at any Sally Beauty store, while supplies last. And trust me, they’re cute.

  2. Femme Couture Color Made Easy Shadow Effects Trio
  3. Real Colors Hydra Lips Waterproof Gel Lip Liner
  4. OPI Nail Lacquer in Nomad’s Dream
  5. Ardell Natural Multipack Babies

I hope you like my picks for you, Elizabeth! I thoroughly enjoyed shopping for you! I hope you enjoy your gift card and please let me know how your shopping goes!

I Want To Swim In A Sea of Macarons

Now I know this is a deviation from my normally fashion-centered posts (like this one), but I just had to have a PSS macarons post. They’re pronounced like macaroni without the “i”, and are composed of only four ingredients: egg whites, powdered sugar, ground almonds, and granulated sugar. I’ve been dying to try one andRead Post →


Sequins & Leather on a Friday

Happy Friday! I felt my last outfit post was a bit androgenous – and some of you agreed with me. So, when I felt like slipping my boots on again, I decided to add some feminine sparkle. The jeans are also a lighter, silvery shade of grey compared to the dark grey pair in theRead Post →

The One Where She Wore Motorcycle Boots

On my way to class to take a see-how-badly-you-fail-this-standardized-exam which will be five hours long. Five. Hours. Long. I’m going to have to pee. And then my stomach is going to growl. I just know it. But I’m happy because Shop Bop sent me these gorgeous Frye Engineer boots and today is the first dayRead Post →
