Desk Tour

Happy Friday Everyone!

I recently filmed a desk tour video because they were going around Youtube and I wanted to share mine! I love having a little space where I can be creative, go in my own little corner and be inspired. It’s not usually this organized, but I try!

I hope this desk tour will help you setup your own desk or if you’re watching just for fun, hope you liked it:)

Have a lovely day everyone!

Favorite Product Monday (Self Tanner that WORKS)

Good Morning Everyone & Happy Monday!

I am sitting at my kitchen counter, drinking coffee (Gilmore Girls Style) by that, I mean chugging cup after another because….it’s MONDAY!

I hope everyone had a great weekend, I spent it shopping for wedding decor and staring at my computer for hours planning our wedding, which is less than four months away, so crazy!

Speaking of planning the wedding, I thought I would write about a self tanner I recently discovered through one of my favorite youtubers. It’s called “Loving Tan” and I am obsessed. After trying so many different self tanners, I haven’t found one that doesn’t leave streaks and is so easy to apply!

Loving tan comes in the cutest packaging, which may not be important to most people, but it is to me. I think packaging says a lot about a product. This self tanner is a mousse, which you apply with a mitt (which came free because I found a code on youtube).

Applying Loving Tan is super easy because it actually has an instant bronzer which makes it easier to see where you are applying it. I’ve used Jergens and Neutrogena and neither one has that. I had my fianc√© apply it on my back, but if you don’t have someone to help you, the website sells a separate back application mitt.

After six hours, I noticed I was at least 2-3 shades darker! No streaks! The tan is a pretty natural color and gives your skin a summer glow. I’m definitely using it for the wedding day because I’ve had plenty of airbrush tans in my life and none of them have ever given me that “perfect tan.”

During the winter time, having a tan definitely helps through the cold months.

Here is the website if you guys are interested, or let me know if you have ever used this self tanner! The one I got is DELUXE BRONZING MOUSSE in Dark.

NATURAL DRUGSTORE MAKEUP LOOK

Happy Friyayy!

Today, I decided to share my newest video with all of you! If you don’t know this about me, I love a very natural makeup look. I have definitely come a long way since wearing a pile of black eyeliner all over my eyes (high school me). I guess we have all probably been there.

Today, less is more! I love glowy skin and using drugstore makeup that’s affordable for my college self.

I hope you guys enjoy this makeup tutorial & have a wonderful weekend!

WANDERLUST

What is it about going somewhere new that just makes you feel alive? Today, at about 2 P.M. I decided to take a trip by myself. I have always been about last minute decisions, but I feel like lately, I have been in a rut. Going somewhere new opens up your mind in so many ways. It makes you dream, look at the future, and find yourself a little better.

Although 2016 was a great year, I feel like I lost myself in the idea of wanting to stay in the same town forever. I have never been that person. Someone who just wants to settle in one place. Maybe part of growing up is settling down, but I am not ready for it.

I have lived in Savannah for almost two years, that already broke my rule of moving every six months. In 2015, I moved from California to North Carolina, to Savannah all in a span of less than 5 months. Yes, you read that right. I love to travel, I love to move, I love change. Period.

My heart always earns to see new places. I guess maybe I’m always searching for the next adventure, or searching for something that will fill a void. Wanderlust. I think that’s the perfect word I would describe myself. J.R.R. Tolkien said it perfectly, “Not All Who Wander Are Lost.” My whole life people have told me that I am running away from something and maybe that’s how they see it. I see it as being someone who wants to explore every bit this world has to offer. You can’t do that by being in the same place your whole life. It’s okay to be someone who doesn’t want to travel, but traveling in my book is the only thing besides love that truly makes me feel alive.

I hope that in 2017, you find yourself by doing whatever it is that makes you happy. Maybe dreams you have been putting aside, find time. Life gets busy, I get it but there’s nothing better than accomplishing your dreams and pursuing ¬†your passions.
