Wednesday, September 10, 2014 / Summer Favorites
Even though it's technically still Summer, I thought I would reflect on all of the great products I used and loved this past season. It was so difficult narrowing down my favorites to a handful of items, so any product I mention I completely swear by. My criteria for what made the list basically came down to which products I felt I enjoyed and reached for the most throughout the Summer. Creating this post also made me realize that I tend to stick to neutrals and basics, so next time I spot a neon eyeshadow palette that "I have to have", I should probably put the credit card back in my wallet.

Now that we've tackled finding the perfect backpack for the new semester, it's time to chat about what to keep inside. This may be super nerdy of me, but I love new school supplies. When I say school supplies, I don't mean new boxes of markers and crayons (which are cool too); I'm talking about cute stationery, awesome headphones, and a new tumbler to drink the massive amounts of coffee I'm sure you'll need.
My favorite types of beauty products are ones that serve multiple purposes. The more benefits and uses one product has, the less make-up I need to reach for on a daily basis. Enter the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lipcolours. The new hybrid lip colors are both a liquid lipstick and a gloss. I adore the YSL Glossy Stains but for over $30 each, having every color just isn't practical. To me, these L'Oreal lip colors are a great alternative to achieve the same effect but at a fraction of the cost.
