Inspirational Bloggers

I’m constantly looking to other people for inspiration in my day to day life. Whether it is for new make-up looks, new recipes, or outfit ideas, my fellow bloggers are the ones that I look to for new things to try out. I have a handful of bloggers/vloggers that I have been absolutely loving lately, and I thought a nice little post to gush about them seemed the most appropriate thing to do on this Saturday afternoon.

First up, is the wonderful Charly Cox from Style the Natives. Charly is one of those girls that you’d love to catch up with at the bar and bitch with about people that have been annoying you lately over many, many cocktails. Her writing style is impeccable with a biting satire that has me laughing and nodding throughout her wonderful anecdotes. She has a fantastic sense of style and is brutally honest in most of her text posts. Please, please check her out. She is awesome.

Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup always has me jealous from her gorgeous hair down to her endless supply of make-up; I’m always scrolling through her many posts for new ideas and tips on make-up. One of my favorite things about her is the fact that she gives her honest opinion about the make-up products she uses. Too many beauty bloggers out there get PR products and “rave” about the products when they actually, kind of…suck. Not only are her posts real, she is a fantastic writer and YouTuber. Her vlogs are something I look forward to weekly and if you’re not already, subscribe subscribe subscribe.

Oh, Olivia from What Olivia Did, what a babe. She is gorgeous, has amazing style, and is a major supporter of women everywhere. If there is one person’s closet that I want to raid (outside of Alexa Chung’s) it would be Olivia. She also has wonderful travel tips and places to see, if you, like me, love going to new places and seeing new things. If you’re currently looking for new outfit ideas or wondering where to stay in New York, check out What Olivia Did.

One of the first bloggers that I ever followed was Carrie from Wish Wish Wish. Her beehive hair tutorial is the only one that has actually worked for me. Like Olivia, she gives me major outfit envy every time I see her HQ res images of her standing in gorgeous outfits in the middle of London streets.

October Favorites

October Favorites

I’ve never done one of these things before, and kind of find it intimidating to divulge what I’ve been really digging in the month of October. October was a weird month for me that seemed both impossibly slow and incredibly fast. Did Halloween really happen four days ago? I feel like it shouldn’t have happened for another couple weeks, but alas, we’ve already experienced October and the following things are what I loved during the month.

Real Techniques Blush Brush

It’s a brush for your blush that you apply on your cheeks to give you a superficial blush. I used to hate blush because I have a lot of redness in my face already, but once I found a color that worked for me, I’m really into adding pink on the apples of my cheeks (what a weird expression, apples of one’s cheeks). Anyway, it’s cheap and good and made by the Pixiwoo sisters, who are rad.

Essie Mink Muffs

I stumbled across this color at Wal-Mart on sale. I wasn’t too sure about the color at first, to be honest. But ended up falling in love with the muted gray and brown undertones.

Origins Clear Improvement

Horror of horrors, I have acne and blackheads and this shit works wonders for both of them. I use it a couple times a week when I feel like I’m starting to stress out and my skin feels gross, which is a lot more often lately. Before I eat breakfast in the morning or during my nightly routine, I’ll pop this on and give it about 10 minutes before rinsing off with a warm cloth and I’ve seen a great improvement in my skin’s texture and pore situation.

Burberry Brit Perfume

I ran out of this awhile back and have been using other perfumes in place of Brit, but when you love a scent, you just can’t give it up.

Bumble and Bumble Creme de Coco

This shampoo is so great. It smells like coconut and lathers really easily. Although the bottle is small and the price is high, you only need a small amount of the shampoo and next day hair is not as greasy as it was when I use other shampoos. For me, I get a longer use out of this shampoo than I have with others in the past.

Ponds Dry Skin Cream

I get terribly bored with moisturizers quickly. However, my grandma and mother are the one that introduced me to this little guy. I’ve been using this all month and my skin feels SO good, even in the dry air.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains

These are my go-to lip products. I’m horrible with putting on lipsticks because they always wear off on my mouth, but these babies stay in place all FREAKING DAY! These are my two favorite colors out of the collection. The red is the New York color and the berry color is the Parisian shade.

 

I apologize about my nail polish at the moment. It is very chipped because I keep forgetting to re-paint them. Bad beauty blogger.
