Hello August

Hello loves!

I hope you all have been doing awesome.

I'm so excited for August and yet sad for the last full month of Summer. I seriously feel like summer just swept by and I didn't enjoy it as much. As much as I love Summer, Fall is my favorite season and I cannot wait for it. 

I'm starting my August with a new book. 
Hunger makes me a modern girl by Carrie Brownstein. I found out about this book through an Instagram page. I love to read and one of my favorite Instagram pages to follow is: @thebookishgirl. She recommends the best books and does the best pictures. In one of her recent post she picture the above book and stated it was the book of the month for July/August, by the moderator of her book club run by the one and only, the most fabulous, smartest witch of them all: Emma Watson! I love all her movies and admire what she does for women's right. She is doing such great work with the UN. 




When I found out about her book club, I had to join. And join I did!








About the Author & Book:


"From the guitarist of the pioneering band Sleater-Kinney, a candid, funny, and deeply personal look at making a life - and finding yourself - in music. 
Before Carrie Brownstein became a music icon, she was a young girl growing up in the Pacific Northwest just as it was becoming the setting for one the most important movements in rock history. Seeking a sense of home and identity, she would discover both while moving from spectator to creator in experiencing the power and mystery of a live performance. With Sleater-Kinney, Brownstein and her bandmates rose to prominence in the burgeoning underground feminist punk-rock movement that would define music and pop culture in the 1990s. They would be cited as "America's best rock band" by legendary music critic Greil Marcus for their defiant, exuberant brand of punk that resisted labels and limitations and redefined notions of gender in rock. 
Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl is an intimate and revealing narrative of her escape from a turbulent family life into a world where music was the means toward self-invention, community, and rescue. Along the way Brownstein chronicles the excitement and contradictions within the era's flourishing and fiercely independent music subculture, including experiences that sowed the seeds for the observational satire of the popular television series Portlandia years later. 
With deft, lucid prose Brownstein proves herself as formidable on the page as on the stage. Accessibly raw, honest, and heartfelt, this audiobook captures the experience of being a young woman, a born performer, and an outsider and ultimately finding one's true calling through hard work, courage, and the intoxicating power of rock and roll."



I'll do my book review at the end of the month.

Have you all read the book yet? What were your thoughts on it?








My new desk

Hello loves,

Happy Subday! I'm so excited for my new desk. I've been wanting this desk forever and she finally mine. The very simple leaning white desk. There's really no place for me to place my laptop. There's an office but my husband uses it and it's pretty crowded in there so I made my own little book in the living room. We spend about an hour putting it together yesterday. 


My husband purchased it for me from Amazon. I'll leave a link below. 

It has two shelves and table for my laptop. I haven't purchased a chair yet because I'm expecting new couches in a few weeks so I want to wait and see  how everything looks together. 


Here's a little tour:



The first shelf has a few of my Louis Vuitton boxes, the big box has my MacBook charger in it. A picture of me and my sisters from the day my big sister graduated from the academy to be an Illinois cook county sheriff. Then a little faux plant. 




Second shelf holds just a few books. Two by Lauren Conrad, one by Michelle Phan, Becoming Nursey. My two Louis Vuitton pm agendas, a hand sanitizer from B&BWs, you can tell its old because they no longer make them in the bottle shape. Wish they did. My speaker. Eiffel Tower gold plated scissors. A book I'm reading right now, the second in the Miss Peregines series. A mason jar full of my gel pens and a pair of ear buds. A finally a tiny unicorn my daughter bought me back from a school trip. 

Everything on these shelves will be moved or changed eventually. I'm a super fickle person. 



Finally my MacBook Pro 13'. She's about five years old and she's my baby. 
I'm thinking of place a calendar either of the wall or one to put in the shelves. 

How do you decorate your desk?
Any tips for me?


Thanks for reading. Hope you enjoyed.


Get my desk so we can be twins:

Current Favorites

Hello Loves,




As you all may have noticed, I don't always do those monthly favorite videos/blog post. Reason being this that I don't go shopping as much as other bloggers and YouTubers. Totally not knocking them, l just go on binges or lulls depending on my mood, haha. 

Anywho, So here is a very short list of a few items and been loving and/or have rediscovered my love for. 

Makeup:



•glo-therapeutics sunscreen. It's summer time and this is so necessary, even though we should use sunscreen everyday regardless of season. I absolutely love it. It's lightweight and doesn't have that nasty sunscreen smell. This product was recommend to me by my esthetician, Liz. Highly recommend it. 
•maybelline lash sensational luscious mascara in black. This mascara is so dark and luscious, just like it claims to be. It does feel a little heavy on my lashes and a little goes a long way.
•rimmel London lasting finish 25 hr foundation. It's so amazing. It's a medium coverage but does just what I need. Perfect for summer. 



Handbag:

My Rebecca Minkoff mini Mac cross body purse. It's my absolute favorite when I don't need to carry much with me. I love the thick studs/feet at the top to keep the leather from getting dirty. The gold hard wear makes it so pretty. I saw it in silver but looked breathtaking in gold. I got it at Nordstrom a few years ago. 



Planner:

My Louis Vuitton MM agenda. I'd be lost with my agenda. Everything goes into this planner. I seriously have memory issues, I've long been told this, so writing things down is necessary for me. Crossing things off my list or to do list makes me feel so accomplished and happy. I feel as though I really contributed to being an adult and was productive, haha. 


Wallet:

Another Louis Vuitton item. My key cley is my wallet. I don't carry big wallets anymore, and when I just need to run to the corner store or gas station this little cutie is all I need. It holds my credit card, drivers license, some cash and a spare key to my house. 



iPhone 6:

As just about everyone else in this millennia, my smart phone is my life line. Just like my agenda, I'd be completely lost without my phone. I'm Team Apple all the way. Absolutely nothing against Android or Samsumg phones & users but they are just not for me. I've tried them and nope. I'd like to think I'm tech savvy, but those other brands were honestly just too high tech for me, haha. The iPhone is so simple and easy to use. 


What have you been loving so far this month/year? 















Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask -First impressions

Hello loves!!

Today I wanted to share with you all this pretty awesome new fave mask that has been making the rounds all over social media. It's the ever popular Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask - or just the Bubble clay mask. 





This mask has been all over my feed on all my social media platforms. So I had to try it. As you all know, I have the worse dry skin and I'm always on the hunt for a mask or cleanser that can help.

After reading reviews on this mask I gave in and bought it. It's a carbonated clay mask that comes in a jar and with a tiny spatula. 

Apply the mask with the spatula provided. But go easy as it's going to bubble instantly so apply even thin layers of the mask. Once you apply it, it dries super fast and begins to bubble almost instantly. I didn't even have half of my face covered when it started to bubble up. I let it sit for about 5-7 minutes. Then rinsed it off. 





Rinsing it off is a pain in the BUTT. It's very messy to remove. Next time I use it I will remove it with a damp cloth then rinse my fave with warm water. My face feels so clean and smooth. I do feel minor irritation on a spot of my face where I may have applied too much clay. Overall A+. Definitely recommend. 







I found my unicorn- literally! Too Faced Unicorn Tears

Hello loves,

Hope all is well and you're enjoying the new week so far. 

The other day I went with my mother to Ulta and we were doing some browsing. I could not believe it, I found my unicorn. Literally I found the lipstick La Crème color drenched lipstick in Unicorn Tears by TooFaced. It's a beautiful very very shimmery baby blue shade with purplish undertones. A little goes a very long way. 

Also, I found a gorgeous reddish brown shade, called Pink Chocolate. I think goes perfectly with my complexion. My lips are two toned so lipsticks tend to look a little different on me. In the middle of my lips lipsticks tend to look much lighter than the outer lining of my lips. 










Sorry guys in my pictures I look exhausted. I just got home from work and wanted to blog this for y'all. As you can see I was still in my scrubs, haha. 






I'm really loving these shades. Laying them together is stunning.
