BTS: Makeup, Music + More

Hello there! 

The school year is now in full swing and with that comes busier schedules and new routines.  As a busy student myself, I have thought of some tips for school, as well as some makeup and outfit ideas!

Lists, lists, lists.

I’m the type of person that in order to memorize something, I MUST write it down. Typically, planners are very helpful for me, but if I need an extra reminder, I make a to-do list somewhere else.  My go-to place to write things down is my chalkboard.  

Studying…. With music.

When studying for tests or doing homework in general, I like to listen to music. I find classical or acoustic music the easiest to work to because I find it to be not as distracting as other music genres.  Usually, I will pull up a music playlist on my phone and then put my phone on the other side of the room to keep myself from being tempted to go on it while working.


For school I like to use light and natural colors for my eyes, along with a black cat eye and some mascara.

In this look I used the Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palatte by Tarte (Tickled pink on the lid, beaming bronze in the crease, hot cocoa in the outer corner, and ideal ivory as a highlight and in the inner corner). For my eyeliner I used the Lineur Intense Defining Liquid Liner by L’Oreal in carbon black and for my lashes I used the Supersizer Mascara by Covergirl in black-brown.

 Style + Comfort

When I dress for school, I like to feel confident and comfortable in what I am wearing.  Lately, I have been really liking soft, fabric, patterned pants paired with plain t-shirts.  Not only is this combo super cute, it’s extremely cozy too!


Patterns, Hats, & Spring

Happy June everyone!

With the new month comes new favorites! 

Dress + Hat 

Today the sun has finally decided to come out so put together this Spring inspired outfit. The blue patterned dress is from Target and the straw hat is from Urban Outfitters. I’m in love with this dress because usually I am drawn to very dark colors and this adds the perfect pop that I needed from my spring and summer wardrobe. 



I’m a strong believer in that the accessories make the outfit. I got the “evil eye” necklace while at a local night market (sorry I do not know the brand) and the jade necklace from Tilly’s. 


I recently got this blush by Neutrogena at Target and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. It adds the perfect bit of rosiness to my cheeks and blends in well with any skin tone. It is in the color Pure (22). 


If you didn’t know, I’m a big fan of folk and indie music and lately I’ve been really into these songs:

– Different Child by Roo Panes

– Seven Nation Army by Zella Day

– Smile by Mikky Ekko

– Take the World by Johnnyswim

– Open Road by Roo Panes

– Holocene by Bon Iver

What have you been loving this season?


Pastels for Spring.

Hi There!
A trend that has caught my attention lately are pastel nails. Pastel nails are very versatile when it comes to color schemes of outfits and pair well with everything from light to dark tones.
The light and airy feel the pastel hue has is perfect for Spring and can have a vintage look when decorated with white polka dots or stripes.
