Sephora Sale Must Haves

It’s that time of year again, the long awaited Sephora Sale!

This is when we restock on our favorites and purchase the items we keep adding and removing from our cart. You know, the ones that hike up your total so you convince yourself you can live without it. Trust me I ain’t no millionaire, I know how this goes!

I just placed my order and here’s what I got:

+ a bunch of new rewards goodies.

BTW, did you guys know every Tuesday and Thursday at 9am they add a $100 gift card to the rewards bazaar for every 2,500 points. The bad news is it’s first come first serve so it goes away pretty quickly. I missed my time slot by checking out at 10:30am yesterday but I’m going to put an alarm to try Tuesday morning. I’ll report back on IG.

My haul wasn’t that exciting, but it normally isn’t as a beauty blogger since we get sent most of this makeup right when they launch. With this fabulous advantage we get to try everything and see what’s good and what’s not. It’s amazing for all of you because I really know my sh*t 😉

Everything I mention below are products I’ve actually tried and loved. If you want specifics for certain products then comment below and I’ll let you know (i.e. what my fav shades are for MJ gloss).

Let the shopping begin!

EYE PRODUCTS

BROWS

FOUNDATION & POWDER

Trendy Festival Approved Hair!

Hey babes! I’ve been so inspired by Coachella looks this year with all the fun fashion, amazing vibes, and of course THE HAIR!

I am so into the fun and slightly wild hair trends that festivals are notorious for having, but do I sound crazy if I say these hairstyles are SO cute that you’ll want to wear them out on a warm summer Sunday or even at an upcoming pool party?! Because I totally would!

Here are SIX fabulous looks we came up with:

I am in love with this hair!!!! My cousin, Lucy, and I thought it would be genius to put my evil eye brooch (present from Armenia) on my hair for some added fun.

Needless to say it looks amazing against the chain detail and the perfect gold clips.

This pearl concoction is so chic & fun I can’t get over it!

Now this is what trendy chic looks like! We had a lot of fun adding brooches and chains to my hair because of how dramatic and gorgeous it looks.

BTW, this is my favorite Chanel brooch that I can style with anything.

These rhinestone hair clips are so trendy right now & so easy to apply yourself! All you have to do is curl your hair, run your fingers through it, texturize it a bit, and apply the clips for that fun dramatic look!

You guys know my obsession with using scarves in my hair (read this post if you don’t) so of course this was one of the styles Lucy came up with.

I love Zara scarves bc they are affordable & so cute!

This is the last look we did and I love vintage cat-eye sunglasses (especially when they are only $10) and they look sooooo gorgeous with this Zara scarf

& of course this Gucci hair brooch!


How gorgeous were these hairstyles? Lucy, you are talented beyond belief! If you’re in LA and looking for a hairstylist she’s your girl. You can book her here.

I cannot wait to see how everyone styles their hair (& outfits) for Coachella! Be sure to pin and share these looks with all your friends who are going so they can get some inspo and look fabulous!

Till next time babes!

Trending: Scarf Bandanas + Bold Earrings

I’ve been wearing scarves on my head for as long as I can remember. I love to spice up my simpler outfits by accessorizing with cute scarfs and bold earrings. It’s actually one of my favorite things to do during Spring & Summer.

I especially love the Zara ones because they are inexpensive and so darn cute!

Here’s my favorite way to wear scarves & bold earrings…

Holiday Gift Guide: Amazon

Greta here coming at you with another one-stop shop gift guide for all your favorites this holiday season. I don’t know about you but Amazon is my jam. I order something from Amazon at least once a week, especially since I’m a prime member and get free ONE day shipping. I love that I can buy literally anything from just one website and get it the next day. For an impatient shopper like me, Amazon is like Candyland.
