Current favorite beauty products

So I've been running more lately. I got an arm band that hold my phone and money while I run, so it encourages me to run outside more, which I used to hate. I just lover running along the Charles River and seeing Boston on the other side. Where was I going with that..? Oh yeah! I haven't been wearing makeup in the mornings just because I get up, run, get food, and then I finally shower and begin my day. I really don't enjoy going without make up - I don't like how I feel or look without it. Sometimes I do, but typically I prefer to do everything except sleep, with makeup on.

This came to my mind because I just showered and got to put my makeup on for the day and I feel so great! I wanted to show you some of my go to beauty products lately. I highly recommend all of them!

Yes, it's pricey. But it lasts forever and it's so worth it!

I really want to try everything that this brand has! They're having a sale right now and as I was finding the links for these it became dangerous because I found myself adding one too many things to my cart.

Ahh, I got this while in Rome. Kiko Milano was my friends and my favorite spot for makeup. They have the best eyeshadows as well! I miss it so much.

Another product in this brand. This is probably the #1 thing on this list that I recommend. I have yet to find a better brow pencil. I love this! I would rather not spend $12 on something that only lasts a few weeks, but honestly I would pay anything for this product.

This one isn't really a beauty product, I guess. I colored my hair blonde about a month or so ago and I've been really loving it! I think it might be my color. I hate when it gets bronze-y though. One day at work I complemented a girl's hair and she told me about the purple shampoo she uses, so right when I got off I sped to Ulta to get it. I've been loving it and I try to use it about once a week!

What have you been loving lately? Do you have any eyebrow pencil recommendations that I might find useful?

**Sorry for the awful picture quality! I'll just take the pictures myself next time.

Future family

I mean... can we just... how cute are these photos?! For some reason my future family has been on my mind a lot lately. I guess because I've been kind of boy crazy lately. You have no idea the amount of boy drama I've endured recently. Obviously I'm excited for this part of my life, but I also have so much more to look forward to. I just found these pictures so so precious.

All found on Pinterest.

I've been so obsessed with this song lately. I think it puts me in the best mood and lifts me up after a tough day. I love listening to it on my walks back from class or on the subway. Also! The video is SO cute! Give it a watch - I promise it'll put a smile on your face.

I hope you're all doing well! Sorry I haven't been blogging. I'm back in Boston all moved in and trying to get a good start on senior year! So far so good, but I have so much on my mind. I wish I could share every bit of it with you, but I know it would bore you and at this point there's so much to say I think it would take forever!

To The Bone

Have you watched Netflix's To The Bone?  I watched it for the first time a few weeks ago and again last night. I think they do a wonderful job portraying eating disorders and the difficulties surrounding them. I definitely recommend this movie!

This is one of my favorite scenes. I screenshot them last night while I was watching it. I just think it's done so well and is so beautiful.

"Why are we here?"
"Because we're alive."




This is the song played in the background, and I've been loving it ever since:

Music for your feelings

Here are some love-y songs I've been listening to a lot lately. I put the title, singer, and some of my favorite lines of each one. Don't they make you feel some type of way?

IFHY - Tyler, The Creator

Cause when I hear your name I cannot stop cheesing
I love you so much that my heart stops beating when you're leaving
And I'm grieving and my heart starts bleeding
Life without you has no goddamn meaning

She's Mine Pt. 1 - J. Cole

It would take more than some years to get over all my fears
Preventing me from letting you see all of me perfectly clear

Sober - Childish Gambino

If you just give it a chance, loving you is not my plan
Cause I know one day you'll see
All the things that we can be

Get You - Daniel Caesar

Every time I look into your eyes I see it
You're all I need

Shot Down - Khalid

If we're keeping it a hundred, you're all that I need for me
From the jump until forever from now, I would ride for you

Electric - Alina Baraz

Whisper in my ear, I'm the only one you're loving on
Take advantage of the moment, you're the only one that I want
