High-end Makeup Sale!

FRIENDS! There's an amazing high-end makeup sale happening right now & I'm super excited to share my picks with you.
I like to have a good mix of higher-end & drug store products in my makeup routine, so these are the items I feel are worth the price (especially on sale)! If you've had your eye on any of these, now is definitely the time to snag them since I rarely see sales on many of these brands. 

1. Mac lipstick (love the shades velvet teddy & half-n-half) | 2. Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer | 3. Laura Geller baked gelato swirl illuminator (dying for peach glow) | 4. Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit | 5. Stila glitter & glow liquid eyeshadow (just picked up smoldering satin) | 6. Mac lip liner pencil | 7. original Beauty Blender | 8. Urban Decay naked skin concealer | 9. Laura Mercier face illuminator (the shade indiscretion is a fave) | 10. Lancome Teint Idole foundation | 11. Benefit roller lash mascara | 12. Mac powder blush (I use the shades melba & breath of plum) | 13. Urban Decay setting spray | 14. Anastasia Beverly Hills brow gel

All these products are things I own or plan to purchase during the sale! And if I had to pick a #1 favorite, it would definitely be the Lancome foundation. It is far & away my favorite foundation!


Ruby Claire Take 2

Ruby Claire Boutique is at it again, guys... bringing me some of my FAVORITE things in my closet currently!

Top- c/o Ruby Claire Boutique | Bag- c/o Ruby Claire Boutique | Jeans- Free People | Booties- Nordstrom (similar)

You all know i die for embroidery, so this top was a no brainer. And this bag!!! So it's a total dupe for the Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag for a fraction of the price! I about died when I saw this on their site because at the time, I was trying to figure out a way to save my pennies for the designer version. But this one is sooooo beautiful in person and I'm pretty impressed with how affordable it is. Such a steal!

I fully realize some of you may hate me for saying this, but as far as my wardrobe is concerned, I'm 100% ready for fall!! I love fall accessorizing and BOOTIES! Like these ones that are a few season old but still totally have my heart. 


Jumpsuits are Life

You can never have too much of a good thing... and that is my motto when it comes to jumpsuits!

Jumpsuit- Old Navy | Shirt- Downeast Basics | Shoes- DSW | Necklace- c/o Made by Mary

This one in particular is SO flattering on! It definitely accentuates your waist & curves and I'm such a fan. Also, it's currently $22 and YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT.

I had someone tell me recently that they felt like only girls who are size 0 or 2 can really pull off a jumpsuit, and I am here to tell you jumpsuits are for EVERYONE! I have a pretty average body size (I'm a size 6-8 or Medium) and I have insecurities just like everyone else. But for whatever reason, jumpsuits bring out my confidence & I always feel great when I wear one! So give em' a try & let me know what you think!
