August Favorites

So for this favorites post, I don’t have a ton of beauty products to share. I have a lot of random products and accessories to share instead. I also share some TV and literature stuff here too, so hopefully you enjoy the mixed bag of favorites I will be sharing.FullSizeRender (9)

So I’ve been using this Lancome Blush Subtil, which is an oil free blush and I love how understated and rosy this color is. On darker skin, it pops just enough. A lot of the times, I’ll see blushes in vibrant colors and it just doesn’t work on my skin tone. The shimmer on this is also amazing. The second product is the Lancome Youth Activating Eye Cream, and it’s awesome if you have dark circles. You just need a little dime size amount to dab around your eyes.FullSizeRender (8)

This $7.99 watch is rubber and it is from Joyce Leslie. I have a rose gold watch, which I love, but it’s not versatile to wear every day. This one is nice because it’s rubber and easy to wear everyday. I also love this nude color with the gold on this watch. Also, I’ve been obsessed with gold rings as well. I’ve been loving the ring trend, where people wear tons of rings on one hand. These ones were $5.00 from Rue21 and if you don’t want them to turn your finger green, use some clear nail polish on them.FullSizeRender (7)

This was a cute notebook for a buck at Michael’s. It’s small enough to take everywhere so I’ve been jotting homework and blog ideas in here. If you’re a writer like myself, take one of these around everywhere you go.FullSizeRender (11)

This was a book I read during the month of August. Here’s my full review here:https://mytrendingstories.com/article/book-review-since-youve-been-gone/ Overall, I really loved the message of this book. It’s about living your life to the fullest around the people that make you happy. The main character goes through some serious growth and the love interest is a fantastic character as well.FullSizeRender (13)

These sunglasses were $2.00 from Wet Seal, and I just kind of threw them in my basket because they were cheap. But if you’re nervous to try these kinds of retro sunglasses, these are great. I wear them everywhere.

stranger things

This was my show of the summer. It was so amazing. Also, here’s my full review:https://mytrendingstories.com/article/review-lets-talk-about-stranger-things-season-1/ I love these kids. I want Millie, Finn, Caleb and Gaten to be my best friends. They’re fantastic, and the plot is pretty original with little homages to movies like E.T and Super 8.

Anyway, I know my list if random, but I hoped you enjoyed it! 🙂

Valentine’s Day: Clothing Deals and Steals!

For the lovely ladies who have a Valentine this year, here are some deals I found online! Check out Topshop, ASOS, Forever 21 and H&M’s websites for more clothing! Also, I’ll be doing an accessory post for Valentine’s Day too sometime soon!

Image 1 of AX Paris Crochet Shift Dress
ASOS AX Paris Crochet Shift Dress- $41.11: This dress screams Valentine’s Day and I love the ease of shift dresses! I love a lace dress but it’s hard to find a quality one! This one is definitely worth it!
H&M Fitted Jacket- $24.95: I love the shape of this jacket. I really like the pictured look with the blush shirt and leather pant. A high-waisted pant looks best with this shape! The leather gives an edge to the look while a pink/ blush color softens up the look.
Image 1 of Vero Moda Long Sleeve Shirt Dress
ASOS Vero Moda Long Sleeve Shirt Dress- $37.37: I love the idea of wearing a black dress for Valentine’s Day and then adding a splash of color with pink heels or a red statement necklace!
Forever 21 Quilted Faux Leather Skirt- $24.80: I adore a quilted skirt especially this one! A white button down and red tights would be super cute with this skirt.
Forever 21 Layered Boxy V-neck Tank- $17.90: Who says you have to wear red or pink? I think this lavender color is equally romantic and cute for Valentine’s Day.
Topshop Elastic Cut-Out Bodycon Dress- $40.00: I think a crisp white dress with simple red heels is great for Valentine’s Day! I love that the dress is simple and chic with a tiny cut-out! A statement necklace or cuff bracelet would also work with this look!
H&M Patterned Organza Dress- $24.95: This light blush colored, polka dotted dress is super girly and modest! Wear with black tights and black ankle boots for the cold weather!
Forever 21 Pleated Woven Joggers-$14.90 : For the people going on first dates, I think these pants are great because they aren’t too casual and they aren’t too dressy. A crop top looks great with these pants along with heels or boots.

Hope you liked the pieces I picked out! Comment below if you want a certain look or fashion trend to rock on Valentine’s Day!
