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!

How to Decorate Your Vanity for Springtime

 A vanity is an absolute staple piece in any girls' room. I can't tell you how much time I spend at my vanity everyday. Today I wanted to share with you some ways to update your vanity for the Springtime.
 A Vase of Flowers  
 Flowers are a must during Spring! Honestly, anytime of year they work. Flowers give a vanity a little bit of liveliness and they're so beautiful! This may sound silly but they really remind me it's the Springtime when I glance at them. They also add a lovely and refreshing scent to the room. Flowers make me feel cheerful and always bring a smile to my face. Flowers don't have to be store bought. They can be handpicked from your own garden. I particularly think it adds a special touch. They're my favorite things ever! 
 Perfume  
 I love displaying my perfume bottles on my vanity. They look so chic and they remind me of something I would see in an old glamorous Hollywood movie. I'm a very visual person so I like being able to see what perfumes I can chose from each day. It's not only a great way to display your perfumes but it's also quite helpful in getting ready for the day.
 Makeup  
 Just like perfume it's great to display your beauty products. I especially like putting out my makeup that I use everyday and have beautiful packaging. Beauty companies now have gorgeous packaging. They know the products are going to be displayed. It'd be such a shame not to!
 Jewelry  
 A great way to display your jewelry is with little trinket dishes. There are some adorable ones online. I also like displaying my jewelry on this decorative French Patisserie Tray. It's so pretty with the little dessert and pastry designs. It names each dessert in a tiny font. I adore it! I display perfume, makeup, jewelry, etc. Basically everything I already mentioned!
 Floral Tablecloth  
 I touched on this in my Girly Room Decor Ideas post. Adding a tablecloth or table runner with a floral/decorative print really changes how our vanities look.  Think of a tablecloth as a foundation of your vanity embellishment. If you don't want a floral print pick something that is pastel. These prints are amazing for Spring!

 Other Ideas Not Pictured:  
• Candles
• Ribbon
• Teacups
• Artwork/Pictures
• Handbags
• Little trinkets

I hope I gave you some inspiration and ideas on how to decorate your vanity or even your nightstand. These ideas could definitely work for so many different types of furniture!

Basic Spring Tops You Need

 I recently went shopping at Garage this week to pick up some basic tops for the Springtime. I love buying tops that I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of. The tops I'm going to show you are super light, breezy, comfy. The colors are also amazing, so they're perfect for Spring!
 
 This first top is probably one of my favorites because of the floral print.  I'm obsessed with any clothing item with flowers/ a floral pattern on it! The colors of the flowers are so pretty. I especially love the hint of yellow because I really don't wear yellow a lot. It's just a fabulous everyday top! 
 This next top is the most beautiful shade of pastel purple. Lavender and lilac is a huge trend for this Spring. I'm so happy about it because Lavender is one of my absolute favorite colors! How could you not love this color? 
 I adore this white and blue striped top! As you can see all of these tops are pastel because pastels are made for the Springtime! I love the pattern on this top. The sky blue is gorgeous! I don't have many striped tops so I'm excited to wear this one.
 Lastly, I got another lavender colored top. I think I may have an issue with buying too many tops this color! I figured though since it's more of a timeless trend it'll still look fashionable when people stop wearing it as much. Anyway, that's how I justified it in my mind! Haha!! You have to admit it's a stunning color. I love adding a little knot to give the top a little extra something. It's so comfy and I love the length. Would be perfect paired with leggings.

 Let me know in the comments which top was your favorite! If you have any fashion posts you want to see from me also please comment what! I hope you have a great week! Thanks for reading! :)
