new year, new obsessions

new year new obsessions 2I haven’t done one of these since November…so needless to say I have a TON of new brands + products to share with you guys that I have been lovin’. With that being said, I am gonna just get into the good stuff because I have a whole lot to say about my January favorites.

One of my new years resolutions is to just get back into my skincare routine everyday—morning + night. You guys know I am a lil crazy about my skin + I’m always testing out new stuff. However, in the past few months I have actually stuck to the same products. The only thing I usually switch up with my skincare routine is moisturizer / cleanser because I’m not super picky / specific about those + like to try out new stuff. I do want to add a little disclaimer that that I have been using these specific products for up to 1 month or more + I plan to repurchase them all. I have received a few of the products from the brands but I just want to put out there that this is not an AD or sponsored blog post, I just genuinely love these products. Anyways, let’s get into it:

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”3487071″]

Frank Body Creamy Face Scrub: I exfoliate my skin with this after cleansing about 3-4 times per week ++ it’s really helped even out my skin tone. I def notice a difference when I’m using it regularly. It has all natural ingredients including coffee grounds (yum), rosehip + coconut oil. Basically all the good stuff in one bottle.

GlamGlow Thirsty Mud: I honestly don’t know how I haven’t mentioned this in a blog post before but this is honestly the HOLY GRAIL of moisturizers. I use this product when my skin needs some extra TLC + feels dry. I always say this but I really believe that if you’re not super into skincare you could easily get away with using this one product by itself, it’s just that good.

Glossier Solution: This was my first time ever trying a chemical exfoliator ++ it’s seriously changed the skincare game for me. I use this morning ++ night to get the full effect and it really works. My skin overall looks brighter, clearer +++ feels soooo good. It also helps with acne!! I never have breakouts while using it. I didn’t bring this with me to Colorado and I 100% noticed a difference. Needless to say, I will be repurchasing this stuff for a looong time.

Paula’s Choice BOOSTER: I’ve been using this as a spot treatment for the longest ++ it really works. If you struggle with breakouts / redness, you should def try this product.

LANEIGE sleeping lip mask: If you’re following me on Instagram, you already know I’m obsessed with this product. It’s technically an overnight sleep mask but I wear it ALL the time. You can always find this in my purse or on my bedside table because I can’t live without it now. Makes your lips feel soo dang soft, gives me a pretty pink tint ++ plumps your lips. Did I mention it smells like berries???

Dewycel CICA Plus Balm: I had a Korean skincare brand sent this to me + not gonna lie, I was a bit skeptical because I’d never heard of them BUT after one use, I fell in love with this stuff. Seriously the most hydrating product I’ve ever used +++ my skin has never felt so soft.

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”3496283″]

Kylie Lip Kits: I honestly never understood the hype around Kylie Lip Kits but I finally caved and went to ULTA (thank god they carry them now) ++ got me some lip kits. I have shade Koko K (more of a pink) ++ Exposed (orangeyyy tones). The formula is 10/10 + seriously smells like cupcakes. I just love how each liquid lip comes with a matching lip liner. These are the lip products I wear pretty much everyday, I switch between shades.

Too Faced Dew You Foundation: If you follow me on IG you’d know I’ve been struggling to find a good foundation for a while now. My ultimate fav is the Too Faced Peach Perfect so I thought I’d try out their new Dewy line. This stuff is AMAZING. Seriously smells like watermelons (idk why I love good smelling makeup lol). It’s full coverage but it’s meant to give your skin a dewy finish — which it 100% does. I’ve always wondered how girls can wear a full face of makeup and still have such hydrated looking skin +++ I think I found the secret. ( I wear shade Vanilla in all Too Faced products).

Wander Beauty Glotion: Wander beauty is one of my new fav makeup brands. Their “Glotion” is my favorite primer type product to apply before makeup for an extra dewy finish.

Too Faced Chocolate Bronzer: This is another product I’m behind on trying. I picked this up when I got the foundation + I love it! Smells like chocolate and has a pretty matte finish.

Too Faced Lip Injection Gloss: THIS STUFF. If you want some extra pout without actually get lip filler, I highly recommend trying this stuff out! It actually works.

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”3496284″]

Vitruvi Stone Diffuser: I’m soooo in love with this brand. I had a diffuser from Amazon before and I honestly can tell a difference with the quality in so many ways. I have the white stone diffuser + use it every single night + honestly during the day. My favorite blends right now are grapefruit, pacific + boost.

They do carry Vitruvi on Amazon but I actually have a code for you guys if you shop through this specific link you can save 20% off. You can use code vitruviXjamie at checkout for a discount!!

 HUM Collagen Pop: I’ve been trying to get a better intake on my vitamins / supplements ++ one of those vitamins is collagen. Collagen is soooo so good for your skin, hair + nails. It’s actually also rlly helpful for stomach issues + your overall gut health. I honestly do notice a difference with my stomach problems when I intake collagen daily. I prefer these little fizzies because it’s SO easy + reminds me to drink water. The taste isn’t amazing but I don’t mind it!! I did notice that adding lemon helps with the taste. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of taking tons of oral vitamins so this is an easier option if you’re the same way.

Love Hair dry shampoo: OBSESSED WITH THIS STUFF. I definitely prefer the powder form of dry shampoo now that I’ve tried this. I honestly use this everyday, even with my clean hair to add extra volume + texture. It works so well + is in a small enough bottle to throw in your purse — which is my fav.

September Favorites

img_2911.png

So for the month of October, I am going to attempt to put up two blog posts per week (maybe more) so get ready for lot’s of content from me! I thought this would be the perfect intro into the new month with a little recap of products and favorites I was loving in September! img_2909-e1538523397783.png

img_2912.png

I am planning on doing an updated skincare / makeup routine blog post on it’s own so I just wanted to feature some of my ultimate favorites for this.

The first product I want to talk about is the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask. This has been a cult-favorite this year, for good reason. It took me the longest time to try it out (mainly because it was always out of stock) but I finally picked it up and gave it a try. I’ll admit, my first reaction was that it reminded me of toothpaste — it has a minty scent / thick texture. After using it overnight, I was amazed at how soft and moisturized my skin felt! I have fairly normal-to-dry skin so I found this stuff to be super helpful for that. Even though it’s considered a mask, I love using it as my daily moisturizer… it’s just that good!

Next, I wanted to mention a fun little brand I discovered on Instagram. I feel like I’m always seeing ads on my feed for smaller skincare/body brands similar to this so I thought it’d be interesting to give you guys a little insight on how I actually feel about their products. Anese is a skin/body care brand that specializes in booty care. Yes, you read that right. They have a bunch of different scrubs and lotions for your bum. I wanted to mention that + I will link those products below if you’re interested! However, I decided to test out their new skincare SLAY serum for your face! I have been loving this product. I usually apply it under my moisturizer before my makeup! I personally think it’s super important to hydrate your skin before applying a full-face of makeup, because it applies sooo much smoother and lasts way longer.

If you haven’t already heard of Wander Beauty, get ready for a huge spiel from me because I have been obsessed with their products! They are a cruelty-free beauty brand that carries makeup/skincare. I am planning on featuring a couple different products from them in my makeup routine but for this post I wanted to share their eye masks with you guys! They are so easy to apply, you can seriously do it anywhere! I love these.

Lastly, I wanted to mention two primers that I have been loving! Similar to moisturizer, I honestly believe in using primer. I know a lot of people have different opinions on whether or not it actually works but personally my skin needs all the hydration it can get! I notice a difference when I use primer versus when I don’t so that’s why I love it! You guys know I love Smashbox primers so I decided to pick up this Radiance once. It honestly reminds me of my Glam Glow Mega Illuminating Moisturizer, so I am super stoked about that.

Another product that I am long overdue to test out is the MAC Prep and Prime Fix+ spray. This stuff smells so dang good and works amazingly! Personally, I can’t do my highlighter without some sort of primer spray so I really love this! It sets your makeup and leaves it looking super hydrated.

This was a hard section to pick for because I feel like I am still transitioning into my fall closet and I want to a do a fall style report so I just decided to go with some accessories that I’ve been loving.

I think these KDB boots might just be my favorite pair of shoes I’ve ever owned! I am seriously obsessed with this style. White boots are so cute for fall because they bring a lil pop of color to any outfit! I am super excited to style these.

Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn Boots

Similar Style – I love these for everyday wear!

I have been meaning to pick up a mini backpack and I was so excited to find this one at Brandy Melville. This goes with every outfit and it’s SO convenient. I will see if I can find the exact link to this one but I will be sure to link some of my other favorites below.

Lastly, I wanted to mention some undergarments that I have been obsessed with. This might sound so weird to feature in a monthly favorites post but these are so comfy + amazing to sleep in! Richer Poorer also has t shirts + socks so I highly recommend checking their stuff out. Their products are super high quality and soft!

I have a few different things for my lifestyle favorites but first I wanna talk about this perfume I’ve been loving from by Rosie Jane. They recently released their new scent Angie, which is a mix of honeysuckle + fig. I am obsessed! It’s the perfect light scent for fall.

I am so excited to announce that I am partnered up with Olly. Olly is a vitamin brand sold at Target that I’ve honestly been using forever! I think my mom originally introduced me to their brand last year + I have been using them every since. They are gummies so they’re super easy to take daily + they have a decent taste to them. As a full-time student, I have been loving their laser focus/ goodbye stress vitamins. These are so helpful and I seriously think they make a difference!

Lastly, Califia Farms is my go-to almond milk / creamer brand. I have been using their stuff forever! I will admit I am not a huge pumpkin spice fan but every year around this time I give it another shot because I want to get in to the fall spirit. I picked this one up at my local Von’s and I was pleasantly surprised! It’s perfect for anyone who doesn’t like that intense pumpkin flavor. It’s a subtle taste, which I love. I highly recommend adding this to your fall morning routine.

August Favorites

img_9540-e1535685831596.pngFirst off, I wanna apologize for being so MIA on here these past couple weeks…I’ve honestly been SO busy!

Everyday Makeup Must-Haves

MAKEUP ROUTINE 1-1.jpg

img_6375-1.jpg

I’ve been wanting to do this post since I started my blog because I’ve finally found a makeup routine that I absolutely love! Each and every one of these products has been a part of my everyday makeup for at least a few months to a year, so you can trust me when I say these are my favorites! As someone who loves watching makeup/beauty videos a little too much… I can honestly say that I have had my fair share of trying out different brands and products and I can’t seem to stray away from these!

IMG_6371

Before applying any makeup, I always moisturize. I’ve been absolutely loving the Glam Glow Mega Illuminating Moisturizer underneath my foundation because it gives my skin such a dewy finish.

I don’t always use primer, but if I do I use Smash Box.

Oftentimes, I feel like you can’t tell a difference when it comes to using primers, but this product color-corrects and gives your skin such a soft appearance.

Lastly, the Mario Badescu Rose-Water spray is my go-to product throughout my entire makeup routine. I spray it before I apply my highlight, and after I’m done with my makeup to set my face.

img_6373.jpg

After I prep and prime, I use my FAVORITE foundation ever: Too Faced Peach Perfect. I’ve been using this product for over a year now, and I am still obsessed. First of all, it smells amazing. It’s the perfect every-day foundation because it has the appearance of any other full-coverage product, but it feels so light on your skin.

Next, my go-to concealer is the Tarte Shape-Tape. Not only does work amazingly, but it also lasts forever!

For contour, I love Benefit’s Hoola cream to powder contour stick. I use their powder bronzer as well, and I love it!

For blush, I’ve been obsessed with this Too Faced Peach Perfect Pinch My Peach! I was hesitant about cream products at first, but this has changed my makeup game. I swear it’s so easy to apply and it’s such a natural-pretty color.

Once I’ve applied all my cream products, I finish the look with my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium! After trying out several different translucent powders, I found that this product gave my skin such a glowing finish!

Now time for finishing touches…

I’ve been using the Anastasia Brow Wiz for as long as I can remember. I like to use the Benefit Gimme Brow for some extra hold.

My absolute favorite part of my makeup routine has to be highlight. I’ve used so many different highlighters and I absolute LOVE precious petals by Wet n Wild. I swear it gives the perfect natural glow and it’s perfect for summer.

As for eye makeup, I usually just add some bronzer to my lid. I have eyelash extensions which is why I don’t wear any mascara! Comment below if you’d like a post all about eyelash extensions…

IMG_6370-1.jpg

Although this isn’t necessarily a part of my “makeup routine”…I’ve been using these products DAILY. I absolutely love this brand and their products.

I use the OUAI Sun of a Beach spray on my damp hair before I blow-dry and it lightens my ends and gives more of an ombre effect. My hair is already very blonde so it’s just a tiny difference but this product is amazing for brunettes who want to lighten up their hair for the summer.

Once my hair is dry, I love using the Wave Spray for some extra texture. It’s the perfect product for beachy curls.
