    January Favorites

    I hope you enjoy my first favorites post! Comment below with one of your favorite things for the month! Hair Accessories These cute hair accessories came from my local T.J. Maxx and I am loving the pearl and gold combination right now! These give any outfit a more “dressed up” look without very little effort.

    Too Faced Mini-Haul

    When I go shopping for makeup, I usually have a specific product I am looking for or at least an idea of what I want. If I go to “browse”, I end up buying more than I need/afford. Anyone else struggle with self-control when you’re in proximity to a Sephora or Ulta? That’s definitely me.
