Budget Buys: Mascara

Hey y’all,

Today I’m talking about drugstore mascaras. When it comes to mascara, I am PICKY! I’m a chronic eye-rubber, so I need something that won’t make my lashes stick together, get clumpy, or feel to heavy. And a little length doesn’t hurt either.

Here are some of my favorite budget mascaras that are in my makeup bag right now!

Summer Sweat Sessions

Did I just use “sweat” in my title?

Yup…I did.

There is a mean to my madness, though. Cause who else hates feeling gross (more gross than usual) after a summer workout?

My go-to spots for workout clothes are either Target or Ross. Since I can’t really scope out Ross pieces online, today I’ll be featuring Target!

I’m featuring some of my top workout clothing items that are slightly more friendly to the super hot weather. Think.. thin tops, straps, and shorts:

Mid-Week Motivation

So I don’t know about y’all, but I have been seriously lacking in the motivation area. I haven’t even posted this week and have been feeling a little down, to be honest. And there’s nothing really wrong, but I’ve just been blah.

Today I was thinking about what I could so to snap myself out of it and jump start my motivation and it hit me… Pinterest!

And I figured id share because everybody goes through these times! Plus it’s Wednesday… Does anybody like Wednesdays?

Best Budget Buys: Foundation

Hey y’all,

So today I’m talking about one of my favorite things – foundations! Normally, I go for higher end foundations just because I like to be careful about what I put on my face. But sometimes, it’s just not practical!

Even though with foundation I’m picky, there are some really good drugstore picks!

Summer-Resistant Makeup

Hey y’all,

I’m not sure how summers are where you live, but Texas is HOT! And everyday I can walk out with perfect makeup and an hour later I’m bare faced. But there ARE a few ways to keep your makeup fresh all day… Even in 100+ temperatures!

1. A tinted moisturizer is something I’ve been an advocate for for a long time. And anything similar is good as well.. Foundation mixed with moisturizer, BB or CC cream, anything to lighten up your face! Anything with a dewy texture will look more natural and not like your makeup is melting off. Definitely a must have! This has been my favorite lately.

2. Waterproof mascara is also a necessity, especially for summer activities like going to the pool or running around outside! It’ll stay put and keep your eyes looking more awake. A lot of times waterproof mascara can even hold curl in your lashes more!

3. And for number 2.. You need a good makeup remover. Because you’ll be wearing stay put makeup, mixed with the fact that hot weather can potentially make your face full of oil and (ew, but true) sweat, it’s essential to completely remove your makeup and make your face a clean slate!

Sunday Brunch

Hey y’all,

You know those days when you’re up way too early but still need to look presentable? Story of my life!

So when Sunday brunch came around, a sundress was the perfect choice! Dresses are SO simple and versatile that they work for any occasion, and you can easily dress them up or down.

This hi-lo dress is so comfortable when it’s HOT outside and can easily be dressed down for more casual occasions.

Here’s a similar dress and some shoes that are like my simple gold sandals!

Getting Personal

Hey y’all,

So one of my favorite things to wear during summer is strapless tops! They’re so cute and add something different. The only problem is.. How can I wear it and stay..appropriate?

Let’s be honest, I’m the first person to roam free, but some tops don’t quite cooperate with that! Here are some things to wear under anything backless that still look cute:

The last one is obviously not cute haha but more practical, while the others would be so cute showing in the back of your backless top or dress! how do you wear backless clothes?
