Review: Sephora Smart Liner

Image
Hello everybody! I thought I would do another review of a product that I have ABSOLUTELY BEEN OBSESSED WITH SINCE I BOUGHT IT!!! 

It is the Sephora Smart Liner which I mentioned purchasing in my last Day in the Life post. I was a bit skeptical about it at first because when I asked the woman at Sephora if she recommended the product, she didn't seem too enthused. She said it was great for people just learning to use liquid eyeliner and there are better ones out there. I have been using liquid eyeliner for only about 6 months but in that time I feel I have improved immensely. Still, I heard good things about this from a few other bloggers and I thought I would give this one a whirl and decide for myself. 

Not only has it made the application so much easier and stress-free, but it also looks FLAWLESS. I have gotten several comments in the past two weeks about how great, striking, and perfect my eyeliner looks. I have been so pleased!! It is SO easy to get a perfect winged look. It was

Review: Moroccan Oil Treatment

Image
Hello there!
I thought I would do a review on this product as I have been using it for the past two months. Now, I do not actually own this, particularly because it is so expensive and I haven't been able to save up money to buy my own. It is actually my loving roommate Michelle's who encourages me to use it all the time because she loves me and is the best person ever. She knows that my hair needs all the treatment it can get because my hair is crazy! 
I put two pumps into my hands and work it through my wet hair after I shower. The smell is amazing. It works as both a heat protectant, a product that quickens the drying of my hair, and makes my hair smooth and shiny. Plus, it is so pretty and makes me feel classy and special when I use it. Thanks Michelle! It is quite expensive (around $40 I think) but I am hoping to invest in my own bottle as soon as I can afford it :)
I do still love my Organix Moroccan Oil that I reviewed back in my Monthly Favorites from June but I think I w…

Day in the Life | My Fall Break

Image
HELLOTHERE! This past weekend was my university's fall break so my roommate Michelle, my friend Maddie, and I went into NYC for three days. We took the train in from Jersey on Friday night. Maddie and I went to Brooklyn while Michelle went to stay with her sister on the Upper West Side. Maddie and I spent the night at my aunt and uncle's, ordered in amazing Italian food from one of my favorite restaurants in Brooklyn called Vinny's, watched two movies, and had a fun, bonding, relaxing night. On Saturday, we met up with Michelle in Nolita to go to our favorite organic cafĂ© called Epistrophy. I ordered my favorite (my usual): a croissant with salmon, brie, arugula, and cherry tomatoes. I also got a Jasmine tea that was beautiful.   After, we got gelato at Ciao Bella and it was perfection.We then headed to the theatre district to watch director David Leveaux'sRomeo and Juliet with Orlando Bloom and Condola RashadThe spectacle of the show was really cool - there was fire, …

Monthly Favorites | September

Image
Hello everybody! It is that time for another monthly favorites post! These are my absolute fav to write and take photos for because I get so excited to share my loves of the month to all of you :) 
So let's crack on. I hope you enjoy!

- Forever 21 Makeup Cleansing Tissues. Each one of these was $2.80 for 30 wipes! I was skeptical at first because they are so cheap but I am really enjoy using them and they do the job nicely. I love how both smell and I think that I will keep buying these. - Glade Apple Cinnamon Spray. I love the seasonal air refresher sprays by Glade and this one just makes my room feel very autumny and warm. It still is not quite cold outside (today the high is 77... not okay) but I definitely feel in the fall/winter mood when I spray this about my room.

- Mineral Mist from Midnight Velvet. SO, I won a $50 gift card to Midnight Velvet through a giveaway on the blog Beauty Parfait and it was a beautiful moment. I got to page through their catalog and pick out a few bit…
