Happy Hiking Boots + What Should I Write??

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! Life is busy as usual, with many good things happening all around me (including my brother’s upcoming wedding!). Anyway, while life is running a mile a minute and I’m trying to edit my book, sometimes I get stuck on what to post for my blog.

I always let the Holy Spirit be my guide when it comes to writing posts about my faith, but that doesn’t mean I never get writer’s block! So I’m asking for your help.

What do you want me to write about?

Is there any life issue you’re facing or advice you think I can provide? Do you want me to post some creative fiction? Any current issues you want me to cover from a faith point of view? Something else?? Please let me know in the comments below or contact me here!

Thanks for your feedback 🙂 Now time to talk boots! I LOVE boots. They are my favorite type of shoe to wear (other than Converse). Although my style is kind of girly, I love a nice tomboy boot.

Hiking boots in particular are trending right now. I don’t really hike (unless walking around on campus counts lol), but I do love the cozy feel and slightly rugged look of these boots.

You can get a “duck boot” (top left) for an extra edgy appeal. You can also find boots with heels for a more girly vibe. There are also other colors besides traditional browns (like the navy pair on the bottom right). They go so well with any fall outfit and are perfect for chilly temperatures.

I actually have the duck boots from the collage above! They are Esprit brand, and I got them for a bargain at T.J. Maxx. I love wearing them with my burgundy cardigans or a chunky sweater and skinny jeans. I actually wore them to a cider mill last weekend, and let me tell you, I felt like I was in a fall advertisement.

My Top 5 Favorite Beauty Products

2016-07-21_13.49.48

Happy Friday lovely readers and followers! It’s been awhile since I did a beauty post, and even though I blog more about fashion, I still love makeup and hair! So today I want to share my top 5 favorite beauty products. These are the items I use pretty much everyday. I hope that you like them 🙂

1. Spray and Play Hairspray

2016-07-21_13.43.12

Having short hair is pretty easy, but volume is the key to a chic messy style. Spray and Play by Big Sexy Hair has never failed to give my fine hair volume. It lifts it up and holds without ever being too crunchy or weighing it down. My hair is actually quite fine and thin naturally. When it’s all done up I like to joke that it’s 80% hairspray 🙂

2. Anew Vitale Cleanser

2016-07-21_13.25.08

I love Avon and have always used it since I started wearing makeup (I actually used to sell it lol). Vitale is a great cleanser because it gets the job done without being too harsh. The moisturizer is also great too.

3. e.l.f. Eye Primer

2016-07-21_13.37.19

This might be the most beautiful accident to happen in my beauty regimen. I was looking for a cheap eye primer and bought this e.l.f. primer in sheer. It actually looks like a pale pink, which complements my fair skin nicely. Anyway, my dark circles are pretty bad and I didn’t have any concealer. I decided to dab a little of this underneath my eyes, and now I look like a new woman. It seriously covers and brightens under my eyes better than anything I’ve ever used before–for two dollars. Go figure. I don’t know how many different shades there are, so if you’re interested you might want to look it up to find one for your unique skin tone.

4. Tarte Silk Amazonian Clay Eye Liner

2016-07-21_13.47.18

I got this Tarte eye liner as a Christmas present, and it is my favorite! I am a huge eye liner addict, and the cat eye is my signature. This liner goes on so smooth and is highly pigmented. The end has a built in sharpener and blender to create a smoky look. I’ve already used up the black, but the brown and navy liners are subtle and flattering for everyday wear.

5. Doll 10 Lipstick/Lip Gloss Duo

2016-07-21_13.48.28

This was a birthday present that I am so thankful for. The Doll 10 duo comes with lipstick on one end and lip gloss on the other. They are neutral colors that give just enough tint to make my lips look bright. The first one (the top shade on my hand) is French Beige/Buff, and the second one (bottom shade) is Baby Doll/Bella. The lipsticks are super creamy and buildable in color. They don’t dry out my lips at all. And the lip gloss is in no way sticky. In fact, my only complaint would be that the lip gloss isn’t sticky enough to last a long time. But I wear these everyday and love them.

Thanks for reading! It’s always wonderful to share my favorite things with you all. Do you have a favorite beauty product? Comment below!
