My Favorite Spring Nail Polishes

 Hello everyone! I feel like it has been forever since I've posted. I've recently been ill these past few weeks and haven't have the energy to post anything. Since we're nearing the end of Spring I wanted to share with you the nail polishes I've been wearing all season long.
 OPI Nail Lacquer in Princesses Rule!
  I love this shade so much. It's a beautiful blush color with little golden shimmer particles. This looks stunning when your outside, you can really see the shimmers reflect and glisten. This is my ideal spring nail shade. I love lighter, pastel, sparkly nail polishes in the Spring-Summer and this is perfect! It's the most dazzling color!
Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Grape Shifter
 This nail polish is such a bold color. I do tend to wear more neutral/lighter nail polishes but this one is beautiful. It has really chunky blue, purple, and pink glitters in it. When this catches the light it's like a disco ball! I love wearing this when I feel like I want more color or want to make more of a bold statement. This formula also is really amazing because it dries in no time.
Sinful Colors in Hush Money 
  This shade is the most gorgeous rose gold. I have an obsession with rose gold and when I saw this I literally couldn't take my eyes off of it. Now when I wear my rose gold jewelry it matches with my nails! Haha! It's such a fabulous nail polish. I love the formula because it's so opaque. You only need one coat. This is one of my absolute favorites.
Ulta Nail Lacquer in Vintage Violet 
 Since purple has been such an important color in the Springtime this year I decided to pick up a violet nail polish while I was in Ulta. I love this shade. It doesn't look like the same color online. It's more of a subtle violet shade while the online one looks very bright and cool toned. I love how it's still pastel but really colorful too. Such a unique and pretty shade.
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Pink Stiletto 
 As you can tell I'm a really big fan of Sally Hansen. The formula looks amazing on your nails. It looks like you just got your nails done at a professional salon. It also is really easy to apply because the wand is so thick/big. I love this bright pink-purple color. It's just such a fun shade!

 Those are my favorite nail polishes I've been wearing all this Springtime. Please leave a comment to let me know what your favorite nail polish has been this season or which one was your favorite of mine. Please remember to share this post. I'll see you next week for another post!

A Handbag Wishlist

   If you know me than you know that I'm absolutely obsessed with handbags. I believe that a girl can never have too many options. You never know when your going to need a certain bag for an occasion. That's how I justify having so many anyways! These are a few gorgeous handbags that I really wanted to share with you.

1. Pastel Handbag- Aldo. I love all the different pastel colors in this bag. It really drew my attention.
2. Glittery Flamingo Clasp Handbag- Skinny Dip. I love the sparkly pink color. It's so pretty with the flamingo clasp!
3. Hot Pink Flamingo Handbag- Betsey Johnson. This has to be the most adorable handbag I've ever seen! I love this so much! It's so feminine and whimsical. Definitely a statement bag!
4. Square White Sparkly Bejeweled Handbag- Aldo. You never can go wrong with white during the Spring-Summer! My favorite part is the embellished chain. So classy!
5. Light Blue Sequin Clutch- Asos. This is such an elegant and sophisticated handbag. I love the light blue color! It's perfect for this time of year. 
6. Feathery Clutch Bag- Pretty Little Thing. This not only looks fabulous but I bet it also feels fabulous! Feathers and Fur are my favorite! This would be so lovely to dress up a look.

  What was your favorite handbag? Let me know in the comments down below. I'd really appreciate it if you'd share this post. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

My Mininmal Beauty Essentials I Couldn't Live Without

  Every girl has her makeup essentials that she carries in her handbag everywhere and never leaves home without. I'm going to be sharing with you today my beauty essentials that I wear everyday. 
 Lip Balm 
   I probably have the driest lips on Earth. I never go anywhere without lip balm. It really soothes my dry, cracked lips and makes them not only look but feel hydrated. Nobody likes the look of chapped lips! My favorite one at the moment is my Lush Rose Lollipop Lip Balm. I love everything floral and this one is amazing.  I highly recommend it! 
 Concealer 
  Concealer is a lifesaver. I literally couldn't live with out it. I am very pale so you can see all my dark circles and veins since the skin around my eye area is thinner. Concealer hides everything from veins to dark circles to blemishes. It's a multi-purpose product. You can even use it as an eyeshadow base. It truly is so handy! This Rimmel one is discontinued but their new one is basically the same one in new packaging!  

 Blush 
   I've mentioned blush before in my Perfect Spring Makeup post. Blush really makes you look more alive. It makes your face look like it isn't covered with a lot of makeup. It also really makes your face have more dimension. I just love rosy, flushed cheeks! I'm still using my blush from my Rimmel Sculpting Palette. It's the perfect shade for blush! I have post on it here if you're interested. :)
 Eyeshadow 
   Even the days when I wake up late I still apply my eyeshadow. I know that may sound ridiculous but it's just such an important step to me! I feel so bare without anything on my eyelids. As you may know I absolutely love shimmery and sparkly eyeshadows. My favorite eyeshadow right now is the L'oreal 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Iced Latte. It's a shimmery pale golden color. It is stunning on the eyes. 
 Mascara 
  Mascara is one of those products that I feel like everyone loves, and for a good reason. It really opens up your eyes. Mascara is that one product that I would bring to a deserted island. I love making my lashes look super long and voluminous. I think it looks so pretty and feminine when you have thick, long lashes. My favorite one for this is the Maybelline Rocket Volum' Express Mascara.

 These are my beauty essentials that I use everyday. It makes the perfect minimal makeup look in my opinion! Let me know in the comments what your beauty essentials are. I would love to know!

The Perfect Spring Hair Accessories


 I absolutely adore hair accessories. They're perfect for days you don't really feel like styling your hair. They not only save you time but they also look stylish and make your hair look a million times better. Today I'm going to share with you my favorite hair accessories to wear during Spring and how I like styling them.
 Headbands 
 Headbands are fabulous for the days your running late or just can't be bothered to do your hair. They keep your hair out of your face and are so fashionable and pretty. They can either be very thin and dainty or thicker for more of a bold statement piece. You can never go wrong with a headband!
  Bows/Ribbon 
 Bows are so elegant and classy. I usually get the front strands of my hair and pin them back with the bow. Even though you can't see how fabulous it looks, the people behind you will! Ribbon is also a really lovely, versatile accessory. You can tie it to make a bow or you can run it through a braid. There are so many ways to style ribbon, the possibilities are endless.
 Hair Pins 
 Hair Pins are currently my favorite hair accessory. I'm obsessed with them and I wear them constantly! I have pins that have flowers on them and they're perfect for this season. I also have some that are sparkly and embellished with jewels and pearls. Those kinds of pins are great to wear in any season. I pin the front strand of my hair to the side of my head. Looks so classy and chic!
 Barrettes 
 If you wear a lot of buns or like doing the half up/ half down hairstyle barrettes are perfect for you. You can simply clip a beautiful, glistening barrette to your hair. They also would look gorgeous with a messy bun. Makes the bun look like it's intentionally messy and not like bedhead messy- that's never the look!

 I'm not very talented at doing really intricate hairstyles so they're very useful. Every girl needs some lovely hair accessories! Let me know in the comments below what's your favorite hair accessory to wear!
