I really love this outfit! I think it screams beachy! I was really channeling my inner Californian. I just think this outfit is super cool and looks really effortless. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Hey guys! Looking at this outfit makes me so sad because I miss warm weather! We just had first snow in Chicago so I can no longer wear anything like this! When I go back to California, hopefully I can wear something similar to this! I hope you enjoy this outfit post!

Hey guys! I really liked this outfit. It was something a little different than what I'm used to. I would have never thought that a plaid shirt would go well with a skirt, but it did. I think a long sleeve shirt and a skirt or shorts is the perfect outfit when it's a little cold outside but you don't want to wear pants. 

I hope you enjoy!

Hey guys! Here is another outfit post! I hadn't worn these jeans since I got to college because I was too scared to. The day I wore these, I decided to not care what people thought. I wore it with some neutrals to balance them out. I also love how hightop converse look with jeans! 

I hope you enjoy!

Hey guys! Recently, I went to ChinaTown Chicago for a group project. Our project was just basically to explore and learn more about that area of Chicago. We went after class on a Friday, had dinner, and just explored. I had so much fun! I highly request going to visit ChinaTown in Chicago and going to Joy Yee! It was so good! I hope i don't make you too hungry from my pictures... :)

I hope you guys enjoy this post!

Hey guys! Here's another outfit post! I wore this when it started getting a little chilly in Chicago. This outfit is honestly one of my favorites. I love the light colors of the cardigan, shirt and shoes but the jeans make it a little less summery.  To make this outfit a bit warmer, you can just add a coat and some converse. 

I hope you guys enjoy this outfit! Let me know other posts that you would like to see!

october beauty favorites 2015

I really like this concealer. I bought it because I ran out of all my concealers at like the same time so I was in desperate need of one. I was deciding between the Maybelline Fit Me (which I've had before and loved) or this one. The beauty salesperson at Target told me that they're basically dupes for eachother, so I just picked the cheapest one. I got 2 colors, Ivory and Light, because I wasn't sure which one would suit me better. Light works better for covering spots but Ivory is good for highlighting. I really like this concealer and highly recommend it. 

I've had this sunscreen for a while but never really enjoyed it. I got it when I was getting sunburnt pretty badly and wanted something a little more expensive to help. I didn't really fall in love with it at first so it just sat in my bathroom cabinet. I didn't have a face sunscreen to bring to college after finishing my Lancome one (which I loved!) and didn't really want to buy another one, so I decided to bring this one. I put it on everyday, with or without makeup and I really like it. I feel like since it is getting colder here in Chicago, I need a little more moisture in my skin and this definitely gives me that during the day without making me excessively oily. 

I got this foundation last winter and could only use it for that season because it was so light on me. Since I've gotten a bit paler while in Chicago, it is the perfect color on me. I had to buy it last year for a high school charity fashion show I was in. I would never pay this much for a foundation willingly for a pretty long time. That said, I love this foundation. It makes your skin look like skin. It smooths everything out without looking too oily or powdery like some foundations do. I highly recommend. I might be re-purchasing it in the future when I am financially stable enough to and not on a college budget. 

I got this foundation while at Target. I asked the beauty saleslady a question and in return, she gave me a bag of samples, this mascara being one of them (full size)! I've never really tried Rimmel mascaras so I didn't really know what to expect. Also, I have so many other mascaras that I need to go through before I start on another. My friend, who also got a goodie bag from Target, said that I needed to try this mascara because she loved it. So, I did and I do love it. It gives a really fluttery, curled, but full effect to your lashes. And it also smells like cucumbers which is a total plus! 

As I said before, my skin has been getting really dry with the change of temperature in Chicago. Therefore, I really have to moisturize my skin at night and during the day. I noticed that my skin was starting to dry out after using my acne face wash morning and night, so I decided to switch it up. I had been using the Body Shop Cleansing Oil to take off my makeup, so I already had it in my stash. I switched to cleaning my face with the cleansing oil in the morning and it has helped so much. My face isn't getting as dry during the day, but not oily either. I really recommend this. 

My mom bought me this leave-in spray for college and I was really excited because she has it and I always love to use it. I really love this stuff for after the shower, to detangle my hair and get it super shiny. I think it definitely helps with my frizz throughout the next day also.


I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I've never done a monthly favorites before, but I really liked doing it. Let me know if you want me to do a November beauty or random favorites post. Thanks so much!
