Ego Boost In My Espadrille

fullsizeoutput_49b

Espadrille shoes are all the craze. They are so cute, fun for summer & easy to dress down or up! I recently came across these guys and have already put in another order for their nude color! The gold studs really make a subtle statement—which I love. They have a thick sole so they are very comfy.

I purchased them from Ego Shoes, which I have been a big fan of their products for a while now. All of their shoes are on trend, or they are predicting the trend. On top of that, they are so affordable, good quality & very fast shipping—which is a huge plus for me because I am so impatient & on a budget!  click the pictures to take you to their site. Happy shopping! 🙂

It’s Good Friday! That means getting ready for the weekend of family & Easter baskets for this girl. I am spending this weekend getting some Easter basket goodies together, cooking & dabbling in some home decor crafts that I have been wanting to do.

If you follow, or plan to follow you will see a pattern with my outfits. I like to be cute yet comfy, on trend while in budget. I am a bargain shopper! My favorite thing to do is to see or predict what is trending & finding similar items for a fraction of the price. Being a recent graduate, I am in saving mode while working an entry-level job. So looking cute & trendy on a budget is sometimes challenging but so worth it when it comes together! Like what is pictured, I paired my Breckelle’s Mules with cut-off light denim Levi shorts & a flannel.

Favorite No Makeup, Makeup

FullSizeRender-1When it comes to makeup, I go for the ‘No Makeup, Makeup’ look. It may be my minimalist ways, or the fact that I am always on the go that I stick to three products. Mascara, a light tinted moisturizer with SPF, and a cheek stain.

I prefer light products, because who likes that mid-day grease feeling on their face?—No thanks! These two babies have been my go-to’s, the Tarte Energy cheek stain & Clinique’s Acne Solutions BB Cream SPF 40. The Clinique BB Cream is so light, doesn’t have a sunscreen fragrance to it & it gives great coverage while also protecting your skin form the sun. The Tarte cheek stain, responds to the skin’s natural pH for a truly customized complexion & it blends really well! The one I use is an older version that has lasted me a while, due to the fact that a little goes a long way! So I linked their newer one that I am going to try once mine is finally finished!

Pixi Obsessed

FullSizeRender

So I am all about natural based & cruelty free products. My newest discovery & obsession is the Pixi beauty products. THEY ARE MIRACLE WORKERS. I have had troubled skin until I started using their ‘Skin Treats’—Glow Tonic, Overnight Glow Serum, Beauty Sleep Cream & Rose Oil Blend. I seriously wake up each morning with a natural glow that I’ve never had before! They’re so light, smell sooo good & don’t have harsh chemicals in them.

Screen Shot 2017-03-31 at 11.52.50 AM In the mornings, after I wash my face & use the Glow Tonic I apply 3 drops of the Rose Oil Serum on my forehead & my cheeks. Massage that into the skin and let it sit for a few minutes before I apply my SPF tinted moisturizer.

I apply 3 drops on my forehead & my cheeks. Massage that into the skin and let it sit for a few minutes before I apply the Beauty Sleep Cream.

The Beauty Sleep Cream is like the cherry on top. It locks in the benefits & moisture from the Overnight Glow Serum which makes you have better results. I use it sparingly by using one pump for my entire face. I message that into my skin and let it sit over night & repeat!

 

 

Over all, I love these products. They are so gentle on your skin, they give you a natural glow, they’re natural based, cruelty free & reasonably priced. Whats better than that! You can get Pixi at Target & online so it is really convenient. Let me know if you give it a go & how you like it! Or if you have any favorite beauty products you’d like to share!
