Drugstore Make-Up products you should be hype about 


I’ve been crazy sick this past week and I’m prepping for a week of dance rehearsals and recitals next week and was only able to post once last week (sorry y’all!) I wanted to start off this week by sharing three new beauty products I recently purchased and fell in LOVE with. All are drugstore items and were purchased from Walgreens.

1. Milani baked blush in luminoso. I have been wearing this every. single. day. It’s beautiful. It’s very very pigmented and powdery, so be careful the first time you go to use it, or it will make you look like a clown (I wouldn’t know or anything…). It’s a great peachy shade that I think will look great on most skin tones. At under $10 it’s a steal!

2. Wet n Wild  ultimate brow highlighter. I am really enjoying this product. I put a little line under my brows and it gives them more definition and a seemingly more pronounced arch. You’ll definitely need to blend it out after application, but I love the trick it plays! Best part is, it’s under $5!

3. Wet n Wild ultimate brow mascara in nothing but but-nette. I really wanted to try Benefit’s gimme brow but didn’t want to splurge on a product without seeing if I would even use something like it. I’m glad I went drugstore. This mascara adds more fullness to my eyebrows and helps them stay in place all day. Hurry and get it, it’s under $5 too!

Happy Monday friends!

If you’re looking for a great spring/summer dress, I’d highly suggest this one from TJMaxx. I love the way it fits – it’s fitted around the waist and super flowy. I love that it is short sleeved, so it is appropriate for any function. I’d definitely wear this to a shower or graduation. The blue floral print is beautiful and classy. If you followed me on snapchat last week, you’ll know that I almost passed up on this dress. I couldn’t decide if it reminded me of a grandma or not (no offense grandmas)! As a girl in her early 20’s it’s hard to find clothing that is modest but doesn’t look too mature. I still want to be sassy, but I don’t want to wear anything unless I’d wear it in the presence of the Lord lol. This dress is it. So, word of advice, buy the dress and rock it! Happy Monday y’all!

Little Black Dress

Y’all, there is nothing I love more on a really hot day than a dress – well maybe a snowcream icee – but dresses are a close second. I actually purchased this dress last Summer, but never got around to posting it. I recently re-organized my closet and found this bad boy still in the bag hidden under one of my clothes racks. I have been seeing so many similar dresses being shared by bloggers for upwards of $75. But have no fear. You know I’m here to hook y’all up with the where AND the wear!

Marshall’s. That is where everyone needs to go and stock up on some Summer attire. I actually hit the mac-daddy jackpot last Summer and found about 95% of my wardrobe from this store. I’m a huge fan of mixing preppy and bohemian styles and this was it for me!  I love the crocheted lace detailing on the top and bottom. It’s lined (can I get an amen?) and it goes with anything and everything. It’s a great dress to wear to a wedding or graduation.

You can find similar dresses here, here, and here!

On a different note, I wanted to remind you all that you are loved. There are so many times when life may let you down or underwhelm you. You are worthy. No one’s decisions or lack of dedication is a reflection of you. God designed you for a holy purpose. While it’s frustrating to go through seasons of drought, when those blessings do start going your way, they will do so in a FLOOD. Stay focused and stay comforted in His peace. He’s got you! Have a good week friends!
