Style Crush of the Week: Frankie Sandford

Oh my goodness you guys, can you say WARDROBE ENVY!? 
I've been drooling (literally) over Miss Sandford's outfits lately.
Her sense of style is impeccable and so trendy.
Also, not to mention her killer body and gorgeous face.
Not. Fair.
So wipe the drool from your mouth ladies and envy along with me!

Cough Syrup

I can't even begin to explain how happy I am that it's summer!
This first week has been so fun; full of tanning, great friends, and good laughs :)
To fit this glorious mood, I've been listening to the Young The Giant CD non-stop!!! You guys, its so amazing, seriously go check it out! 
Me and my best friend are seeing them at Summerfest in July and I'm ecstatic about it!
The SOTD is Cough Syrup by Young The Giant (duh!)
It is such a lift-you-up kind of song, so amazing!

Days Like This

Hello my loves! 
I just recently went to my best friend's (also my AMAZING photographer) house boat this past weekend. I absolutely love going there because it's so peaceful and beautiful! We did two OOTD's while there so stay tuned as the other one will be coming in the next few days!! 
The SOTD is "Days Like This" by Kim Taylor. 
I first heard this song on the one and only One Tree Hill, and to be honest a lot of music comes from there.
Just another reason why its such a phenomenal show!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend :) Xo

My Everyday Makeup Routine

Hello my lovelies! 
So I thought I would show you a little glimpse of what I do day to day for my makeup!
I thought it would be kinda cool to show you through pictures :)
If you want me to do a video showing you my routine let me know in the comments below!!
Speaking of which, have you all seen my latest haul video??
STEP 1: Primer
L'Oreal Studio Secret Perfecting Base Primer
This is the primer I've been using for about 3 weeks now, and I've got to say, it's decent! Not the best I've tried but it keeps my makeup on and in place for about 5-6 hours. I'll take it!

STEP 2: Foundation
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Foundation. Shade: 60 Natural Beige
This is my FAVORITE foundation! Neutrogena is such a good drugstore brand and I feel very comfortable and confident when using their products! This is a great foundation for acne prone/sensitive skin (which I have) and the coverage is medium-full! 

I usually apply it with this ELF flat top brush, beauty blender, or my Real Techniques brush :)

STEP 3: Mascara

Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara. Shade: Blackest Black
This mascara should be ILLEGAL for how amazing it is :) Fabulous for lengthening your lashes after they already have some volume.

Maybelline Volum' Express Falsies Mascara. Shade: Blackest Black
Wonder where you'll get all this volume?? It's with this stuff right here! Gives amazing volume as well as a nice curl to your lashes!

STEP 4: Bronzer
VS Minerals Powder (Bronzer) Shade: Light/Medium
I know Victoria's Secret is not the place to get makeup, however I had one of those $10 off anything cards, and I saw this. I picked it up, thought to myself..."I need a bronzer...this will be free....what the heck why not"! Luckily, I LOVE IT! I really do think its a great bronzer. It gives a nice deep golden color to your skin, not orange at all!

Excuse the horrid mess on the compact...oopsie!!

STEP 5: Blush
Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush. Shade: :( It doesn't have one! 
My BFF actually gave this to me after she tried it and didn't like the color on her skin. I think the shade  was on the plastic wrapper so I didn't get to see the shade! Now even though this seems like a stretch (bouncy blush, really!?) It actually works really well!! And I love the color on my skin! I even noticed its staying power was freaking awesome! I can still see the blush on my cheek 10 hours after applying it!

STEP 6: Smile!!

This song has been one of my favorites for a VERY long time!
There is something about it that I just connect with.
So happy :)
Seriously, take a listen
You won't regret it.
