What I Wore: glasses- Warby Parker, lips- Neutrogena "Radient Rose", top- vintage, pants- Talbots {via "theposhfather" on Poshmark}, flats- Katy Perry {via christinalowe on Poshmark}


Also been loving carrying my Tommy Hilfiger lobster tote,

Crossed off a city to-do off my list this week when I finally tried a "sushi donut" from Pokteria,
worth it, even with the 10 minute wait!
This place is becoming a favorite lunch spot!



Perfect lunch in my nautical themed clothing!

space cadet

Happy Monday,

I had my first Gregorys "Hall & Oats" coffee:

Needed that coffee because my brain is acting like a space cadet today,
matching my sleeves



What I Wore: glasses- c/o Lafont, lips- Nudestix "Kiss" & Neutrogena "Radiant Rose", necklace- Delphine Jewelry, top- Gypsy Warrior, pants- Talbots {via "theposhfather" on Poshmark}, flats- Target

I've been loving the Space Case shadow in "Intense Stargasm" from Ipsy
so happy I depotted it into my Z-Pallete for easier access! 


May your Monday be caffeinated and a good start to a great week

July Humble Beauty Opinion #68


based on the mini series from the podcast 99% Invisible
so instead of the last Saturday of the month my Humble Beauty Opinion 
is coming to you on a Sunday! 
My monthly subscriptions, purchases, reviews, wishlists & empties!

Let's start with Ipsy!
I am loving the new "choice" feature on Ipsy where you get to select an item:

I picked the GlamGlow "Glowstarter" for this month's glam bag:
all in all this month's Ipsy glam bag was... ehhh... just okay.
I like the blush but it is similar to other colors I have recently gotten in Ipsy bags,
same with the nail polish I feel like we have gotten like three of these in the last couple months.
I wanted to love the Smashbox liquid lipstick in "babe alert",
 but it is not that comfortable or long lasting...

I know in last month's Humble Beauty Opinion post
 I had three Ipsy glam bags to share but apparently they expired!
I am sorry for this mix up but if you reached out to me and left your email I have it saved 
and will send one your way ASAP!

Charlie picked up the Trader Joe's "Ultra Hydrating Gel Moisturizer" that I wanted to try after seeing it on @traderjoesadventure πŸ”› Instagram 
& blogged about it in last month's HBO!
Completed my little Trader Joe's beauty collection that I love and use on the daily:
Rose Water Facial | Antioxidant Facial Serum
Ultra Hydrating Gel Moisturizer | Coconut Body Butter

@traderjoesadventure πŸ”› Instagram shares lots of great beauty finds from Trader Joes:

I also picked up a lot of basics that I have been trying to live without 
(spoiler alert- didn't work)

In that shopping excursion I finally picked up this Dickerson's toner 
not sure how I feel about it so far, but it is a lot less drying than my last toner:

Not a whole lot on my Monthly Makeup Wishlist this month,
I have been trying to rediscover my current collection and use products I already own 
because this meme shared by @slave2beauty πŸ”› Instagram is sadly so so accurate:

But I do want to try these new polishes from the YouTuber @simplynailogical,
I love me some holographic!


This month's empties, what I used up, loved, hated 
 & all my humble opinions in between:
bath: Trader Joe's "Mango Tangerine" candle- these are amazing and this one is particularly nice! /  equate "makeup remover towelettes" x2- these are my favorite! / Up & Up jumbo cotton balls- I love the size of these, I get them from Target / Q-tips- a classic/staple / Dr. Bronner's "All-One Hemp Peppermint"- love these soaps, we get them from Trader Joe's / Revlon Colorsilk "Burgundy" x2- my fave hair dyes! / Revlon cuticle cutters- I loved these for a long time but the center metal piece broke and now they are way too hard to use / Purity face wash- as for the product it self it is very gentle and is pretty nice, not a fave though. I used this up a while ago but I love using this little bottle for traveling face wash because it is the perfect size and secure 

beauties: Secret "Paris Rose" deodorant- I like this deodorant it is one I have used for years / MDSolarSciences "Mineral Creme"- I got this as a sample from Vision Expo from their work with Zeiss, I loved this sunscreen, feels great on the skin, I think these products are some of my favorites! / Supergoop "Unseen Sunscreen"- I liked this sunscreen but it has a bit of a weird texture/feel on the skin / Supergoop "City Sunscreen" x2- got these samples and used them up in Tennessee and I liked them but this rip packet sample is such a hard way to try a product / OPI "Avoplex"- I loved this cuticle oil and am now using this container as a vehicle for other oils! / Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter- you already know I LOVE this stuff, my husband thinks a little too much since I go through about one a month... / Empty pan- this is from an old highlighter palette and I have been breaking them up to add to my lotion for a full body glow and I am loving it! / La Chatelaine "Coconut Milk" hand lotion from Ipsy- I thought I would like this more than I did but it was just okay. / Trader Joes "Rose Water Facial Toner"- I love this stuff and would have gotten a lot more uses out of it but I accidentally spilled it into my makeup drawer and I was so sad. But it is a great product! / Smooth & Perfect from Revlon- I love these facial shavers they are so good but they do get dull after a few months, I got another one from my Zia but it is not as sharp or effective / Marc Anthony hair oil- I had this forever but it has been nice when my hair has been feeling a little dry in the heat and sun / Urban Decay "Eyeshadow Primer Potion"- this is my favorite eyeshadow primer and my sisters got me this one for my birthday last year, lasted so long! I am going to try the Milani one because I have heard good things, we shall see / Skyn Iceland "Limited Edition Berry Lip Fix"- I did not like this stuff, has a weird numbing effect, I added the rest of it with a little salt and olive oil for a lip scrub to use it up / Dermalogica "barrier defense booster"- I like this face oil but it was hard to figure out what step in my routine it should be, I got it from Influenster and it was nice to try it out (I liked the lotion better) / Cinnamon Lip Balm- I have had this FOREVER and grew to really like it, a great chap stick and now I am sad it is done / Covergirl "Smoothers" in "Translucent Medium"- I have used these compacts for years and I keep this in my purse for touch ups, I think it is great and comes with its own poof, repurchased!

My coworker/friend Olivia tagged me in this @sarcasm_only πŸ”› Instagram 
and it is SO RELATABLE:

My tired ass lipgloss is Smashbox "Disco Rose"
 in case you couldn't already tell by how much I wear it...
It's me I'm bitches.


Happy Humble Beauty Opinion, can't believe another month has gone by!

Articles of Interest : Pockets + Bonus


The last episodes of this weeks adventure into the Articles of Interest mini series 
in the podcast 99% Invisible is an important one... "POCKETS"! 

This meme after the German men's Olympic skater Paul Fentz's costume came complete 
with pockets is so accurate when you are wearing any article of clothing 
that has actual functioning pockets:
{source: me.me}

It is so true: women’s wear has pockets that are fake or only can hold a paper clip. 
I loved this quote, "Man’s great evolutionary advantage is the creation of tools. The problem is, we’re not marsupials, we need to carry them somehow. And this idea of who has access to the tools they need, who can walk through the world comfortably and securely; THIS is what we are talking about when we talk about pockets."



What I Wore: glasses- Zenni Optical, lips- Neutrogena "Radiant Rose", necklace- Hunt & Orchard, dress- Gap {thrifted}, shoes- Coach {thrifted} 



 This outfit is also perfect for the "Bonus Episode - Avery talks Articles of Interest"

In the bonus episode, Avery talks about how creating this series made her really think about the wasteful nature of clothing, especially in a time where fast fashion is the dominating outlet. 
I liked that they discussed buying second hand as a way to combat some of these consumption issues (fitting for this outfit too because this dress and shoes were thrifted!)

Avery also discusses how fashion and personal style is a really important form of self expression.
It was really interesting in this episode that Avery talked about 
wearing a uniform while creating this mini-series, how it became a fashion detox for her 
& when she got back her closet felt new and exciting.

I did feel like that after wearing all black all the time working at Vault Brewing, 
but now I am working in fashion and using my whole closet again!
& it is exciting!

A little recap of my inspo posts from Articles of Interest series
from the podcast 99% Invisible:
Punk Style | Kid's Clothes | Blue Jeans
Plaid | Hawaiian Shirts | Pockets & Bonus

Articles of Interest : Hawaiian Shirts


Hawaiian Shirts (or should I say "Aloha Shirts") are the perfect Article of Interest 
for Casual Friday!
Inspired by Episode #4 from the podcast 99% Invisible 

I loved how they talked about the origin/history of "Casual Friday" 
& how the "Operation Liberation" was a starting point for business people 
to wear aloha shirts during the summer in Hawaii and support local manufactures. 

I think this shirt is a little more "Hawaiian" than "Aloha" because aloha shirts 
a little more toned down and have actual references to local plants and animals.
This is probably more "resort wear", fitting since I bought it on vacation in Thailand!


What I Wore: glasses- Faniel Eyewear c/o 10/10 Optics, lips- the balm "Namaste" via Ipsy & Maybelline Color Whisper "Petal Rebel", necklace- Julie Vos "Cairo Delicate" {currently on sale during our sample sale!!}, top- market in Thailand, pants- Whoa Wait Walmart collection @ Walmart, flats- Target



I laughed out loud at this post from the @generationwhypodcast πŸ”› Instagram:

Now that is my idea of a wild Friday night!
