What I wore

Growing up I was a tomboy and somehow without realizing I’m finding myself coming out of my shell. I feel my best and most comfortable in jeans and a plain t-shirt. But once in a while (or on really hot days) I like to stroll around the city in cute outfits.

What’s one of your favorite outfits during the summer?

Banana Republic


favorite brand-name product

Being introduced to high end makeup right from the start such as, Dior, Chanel, YSL, and Lancôme, it’s a little hard for me to “lower my standards.” I have tried many different brands of makeup removers but have always found some flaws. I know there are many generic beauty products that are just as good as, if not better than, the brand-name product. There are some products I will always make room in my budget for, and one of those products is by Lancôme.

As much of a skincare junkie I have become through the years, all the stuff I put on my face, a good makeup remover is as important as the makeup I’m taking off. As a contact user, Lancôme Bi-facial has become one of those products I can’t be without. It’s gentle and doesn’t irritate my eyes like most of the others have, it even takes away the heaviest makeup and waterproof mascara.

My addiction to makeup

I didn’t start wearing makeup until my 20’s.  As a moisturizer I thought that the same lotion I used on my body was enough for my face. I loved to tan and thought since I was young I would never get wrinkles until I was really old. Stupid thing for me to think. One day my boyfriend’s mom asked if I used anything on my face…my answer, was very obvious. I had acquired a few wrinkles and some very noticeable crow’s feet. She suggested I needed an everyday moisturizer. Years of tanning had given me about an extra 15 years, I had an old leathery, wrinkly, and dry look on the face. Thank goodness for her! She introduced me to moisturizers, high end make up, and eye creams. I have tried a lot of different moisturizers, but I always seemed to come back to her suggested moisturizer. Almost ten years later, if you look in my bag, I still use the same brand moisturizer, Olay.

As far as make up goes, I’m addicted to it! I do have my everyday favorites. If you took a look inside my purse you would find my top seven favorite beauty products. Moisturizer,  chapstick, lip pencils, mascara, brightening makeup, and bronzer.
