ipsy october 2016.

All the Halloween feels with this bag!
Happy Halloween! I thought today would be perfect for my Ipsy October review, since the bag is so on-theme. Here we go!

The Bag: I love that the Ipsy team paired up with an illustrator for this bag. The pictures are super cute and pop nicely against the soft pink.

Noyah Natural Lipstick in Currant News: First of all, can we appreciate how apt the name is? Props to whoever came up with that one. The sample size is admittedly tiny, but I love the natural composition and deep berry color. It applies lighter than it looks in the tube. I'll be getting use out of this one during the next few months!

theBalm Cosmetics CabanaBoy Blush: Another tiny product, another gorgeous color. I love the moody mauve color. It's perfect for the cooler season when I want to get that warm flush. We'll see how I manage with picking up product from the tiny square though.

Lovely Sarah Jessica Parker Fragrance Rollerball: I was so happy when I saw this was coming in my bag. I'm a major SJP fan and have been wanting to try out her fragrance. It is a light, natural floral that is ideal for everyday use. This is one of those perfumes that I can throw on for any occasion.

Essence Cosmetics Superfine Waterproof Eyeliner Pen: I know this isn't the most high end product, but it's probably the one I was most excited to receive. I'm almost out of my Starlooks liner pen (good pigmentation, not the best point), so I'm in need of a new one. The point on this Essence pen is super fine, which means it will be a dream to apply.

Preventive Measures 101 Lips 101 After Hours: Let's just call this what it is: chapstick. It may be branded as an overnight lip treatment, but I'll be using this at all hours just like any other lip balm I own. Not the best thing I've ever gotten in my bags, but still a practical item.

leather jacket season.

Tis the season! The season for layering and leather jackets that is. I'm all about the crisp fall weather and cozy outfits that go along with it. I recently broke out my leather jackets and scarves and have been so happy with that decision. You just can't go wrong with a leather jacket thrown over pretty much anything and a pair of boots to match.

Throw in a steaming cup of coffee and a slice (or two) of apple pie, and this girl's in autumn heaven.



P.S. Check out my closet on Poshmark! I'm selling some old favorites and never been worn goodies.

gray day.

American Eagle jacket, Abercrombie & Fitch shirt, H&M jeans, Converse shoes

The chill has officially arrived. Part of me is excited about the fact that I can wear scarves and leather jackets again. The other part is wrapped up in my pajamas wishing to never leave the house. But hey, there's pumpkin spice and apple pies again, so I can't really complain.

I love cozy cool outfits like this on overcast days. It probably has to do with my love of dressing for a theme, but I always want to wear grays and moody colors when the skies fill with clouds. Also, layering a slouchy crewneck under a heavy layer jacket pleases me to no end.

Cheers to the season!

shop my closet on poshmark.

This skirt is up for sale!
Have you heard about Poshmark? I started using it recently after doing a massive closet purge. I was looking for a way to give my clothes like the skirt above, plus this skirt and these pants) a new home and this seemed perfect! So far, the app has been easy to use and is a convenient way to clear out my wardrobe. I love that I can pass my clothes that are still in good condition to someone who will get more use out of them than I will. I'm all about reducing and reusing!

Check out my closet on Poshmark to shop!

denim high.

Happy autumn everyone! I'm in full autumn mode right now. From painting my nails and dressing in shades of burgundy, mustard, and forest green to baking everything pumpkin-related, I'm embracing the season wholeheartedly.

Not that you'd know by this outfit! To be fair, it is still relatively warm here, so I just recently started reintroducing jeans into my wardrobe. Speaking of jeans, these ones are high-waisted to the max. I love them! They are so stretchy and comfy, and I plan to wear them with everything these next few months. Floral crop tops now, boxy sweaters a month from get the picture.
