Hey ya’ll! I can’t believe Summer is over! I will say I love Fall and can’t wait bring on the boot and candy corn ! So in honor of this great season today’s post is all about my summer faves!

This season I had more skincare and hair care than last season! I have been trying out some more skincare products. I love been loving the Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner! It’s a toner and exfoliator all in one and I gotta say I love multipurpose products. My skin looks a little bit glowy I love this toner for the Summer time because my skins not as dry. In my Spring FabFitFun box I got the Dr. Brandt Microdermabasion Exfoliator and finally decided to crack it open! I had never tried a scrub like this before after I use it my skin looks great especially when my skin is very dry! It gets it all off and I have a clean , smooth canvas to do my makeup! I have a feeling I’m going to use this all fall and winter!! Now when I get home late on Saturday nights I hate fooling around with taking off my makeup ugh the struggle! When I get home use the Simple Micellar Water on a cotton round and wipe off my makeup. This takes off a lot of my makeup and a huge bonus is its for sensitive skin! My skin hasn’t been acting up as much in the summer so I haven’t had to cover myself in a thick lotion! Remember when I said I love multipurpose products? Well ladies .. and gentlemen I introduce you to the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer! This in shower moisturizer has been my bestfriend during the summer! It keeps my skin hydrated through out the day an sinks in pretty quickly. Now lets get into the hair care! First product I’ll get out of the way because I have talked about it before and reviewed it. You all know I LOVE the Batiste Dry Shampoo when I first started my blog that was my first review! I threw this one in here because of the smell! Plus I still can’t find a dry shampoo that is as good as this one! I got this Briogeo Leave-in Conditioner in my FabFitFun box for spring. I spray this in my ends after I get out of the shower to help detangle my hair a little bit. I love how good it smells. My hair is so soft and healthy looking after I use this! I have been using this Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves spray all summer! I don’t find it to weigh my hair down or leave it crunchy. Yay now onto the makeup I have been loving all summer! For eye primer I have been using the Milani Eyeshadow Primer it dose a good job of holding and making my shadows last! A little goes a long way. Recently I tried a new mascara and put my beloved CoverGirl lashBlast aside (review coming soon) and tried the L’oreal Voluminous mascara!! Oh boy do I love it!! I have not been able to put in down! Definitely look for a review on that! I featured the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in last seasons faves.Yep you know whats coming next the good ol Butter Blush! Another thing I couldn’t put down! I did a review on this as well. I need to get another shade! I also have fallen in love with the Mary-Lou Manizer from the  Manizer Sisters palette. This hightlight is perfect ( insert heart emojji here) I love it! I need to get a full size one! Now I saved the best for last! I am in love with this palette now I haven’t tried all of the shades in the Tarteist Pro! I promise you I am certainly working on it! They are so pigmented and blend like a dream! I’m not going to go on a rant because I am doing a full review on this! You will probably see this in my fall faves! I will say so far it has been worth every penny! Well you guys that’s all I have for my spring favorites for 2017! Who’s ready for fall!?!?!? I know I am!! What was your summer favorites?

Before we get in to it I want to tell you something. I started a GoFundMe  page where you can donate for the Hurricane Harvey victims If you live in the United States then you probably heard about hurricane Harley!

I have been in a hurricane before during Charley I was staying in a hotel room (long story)in Daytona Beach FL  during the storm. I saw everything get torn apart so I know how damaging they can be . I ask that if your able to please donate $1 a month and the first 2 months of donations will go to the Harley victims.

MY BACK TO SCHOOL PICKS YOU NEED! 2017

*Disclaimer this post contains affiliate links if you chose to buy something through my link I may earn a small fee at no cost to you and keeps this blog running! Thank you for your support!*

Hey y’all! Back to school season is coming up so I thought I would do post of my favorite products! These are perfect for anyone that has a budget. I’m not in school anymore but I understand getting up early in the morning sucks! That’s why picks are great if you need something easy! If you already started school I hope you all had good first day back!

L’OREAL Pro Glow Foundation 

The reason I picked this is because it’s lightweight so your not uncomfortable. You can also build it up if you need some extra coverage. This blends good which is a must if your in a rush ( hitting snooze). I like this foundation if you want a little bit of glow this is good. It lasts a decent amount of time too.

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer 

I love this bronzer because it applies and blends like a dream! It smells like a tropical vacation! It goes on .. like butter! It lasts a long time! Also it is matte which is what I prefer. Now this brand is a bit pricey but you can always find coupons or BOGO deals! See my full review here 

Physicians Formula Butter Blush

Yes I picked this brand again. Just like the Butter Bronzer it is easy to applies and blends great! It has the same smell as the bronzer too.They have a few shades to choose from. I love that it’s pigmented just make sure to tap off your brush. See my full review here.  

Elf Baked Highlighter 

This one is great if your really on a budget! When I first got it I couldn’t get anything on my brush then I scraped off the top. It has worked every since! I love how it looks in the sun. It is easy to blend and doesn’t look chunky either. See my full review here.

CoverGirl LashBlash Volume Mascara 

I really love this mascara it gives me volume! I have never had it flake or clump on me. I use this one so much! I love the look it gives. I highly recommend this one!

Maybelline BabyLips Color Balm Crayon 

Again another must have for me! I don’t really wear too much lip product but I really like this it gives a nice color to your lips. A great on the go product the one down side is you will have to reapply it a lot. If you do not want to go all out with your makeup this is a great way to have a light makeup look.

L’OREAL Infallible Setting Spray 

With long early days you don’t want all of that hard work to go to waste! This setting spray is great! It helps hold your makeup in place all day! The smell is strong but goes away after a couple of minutes. It is a bit on the pricer side but I do like it for longer days. See my full review here.

So there you go there is my picks for back to school 2017! I hope y’all have a wonderful year!

L’OREAL COLOUR RICHE EYESHADOW

I was walking down the makeup aisle looking for a new color that wasn’t too crazy because I’m more of a neutrals kinda girl and I saw this L’oreal Colour Riche eyeshadow. I picked it up in the shade 208 violet beaute’.I am disappointed when I tried it out sadly it wasn’t as pigmented as I was hoping it can be built up.They blend pretty easily you could put this as a base or crease shade but it can’t be worn alone because of the pigmentation, of course, I am not a makeup artist and suck at doing makeup haha. For the most part it’s matte with a tiny bit of shimmer which is what I like! Maybe I will try other shades one day.
