Favorite Fall/Winter Lip Colors

 Burt's Bees 'Napa Vineyard' Lip Crayon
Revlon 'Sultry' Colorburst Matte Balm
Revlon 'Shameless' Colorburst Matte Balm
Wet N Wild 'Cherry Bomb' Lipstick
Rimmel Kate Moss '11' Lipstick

It's fall and soon it will be winter, which is is my favorite time of the year for lipstick. It's when I can pull out all of those vampy colors that I think compliment my skin tone so well. 
All of these products can be found at your local drugstore, so they are super affordable and super amazing! 
I know that three of these colors (Napa Vineyard, Cherry Bomb, 11) look very similar, and they are, but I had to include them all because they really are my favorites! Cherry Bomb is my go to lipstick lately. It's a very nice berry toned lipstick that is long-lasting. 
Napa Vineyard and the Kate Moss lipstick might be the same color...but I swear they look different on. 
And that purple color! So so so gorgeous! Really smooth and moisturizing because it's a lip balm. 

What's your favorite fall and winter colors? Do you love any of these?

OOTD: Kushyfoot


I tried out Tanya Burr's 'Emma Watson inspired braided low bun' the other day, and I really liked it! It's super easy and pretty. 
It's actually getting colder here, which means sweater weather! I love this super cozy sweater from Rue21. It comes in lots of different colors, and this gray one suited me perfectly. 

I was sent a few tights from Kushyfoot to review, and they are really comfortable. I'm a huge fan of tights. When fall and winter come I pull out the tights to wear with every outfit! I absolutely love knee high and ankle tights. So if you're looking for an affordable pair I'd definitely check out Kushyfoot.

OOTD: Barbie Girl

Shoes-Charlotte Russe

Pink. Pink. Pink. And some more pink!

Forever21 came out with their Barbie Collection a few months ago, and I bought this sweater right away! I kind of wanted to buy the whole collection, if I'm being honest. I'm one of those people who loved Barbie's while growing up, and now that she's popular I can find her face on quite a lot of clothing. Good news for me! :D

OOTD: Falling for Fall

Flower Crown-Homemade

This has to be one of my favorite outfits ever! I've been waiting to pull out these leggings for fall, and I'm so happy the time has come! I'm absolutely in love with them. 
The combat boots come out a ton in fall too. They keep my feet warm and stylish. 

Who's excited about November? We're getting closer to Thanksgiving...and then Christmas! I can't wait!!!

October Favorites

 Essence All About Matt fixing compact powder
Wet N Wild 'Angels in Aubergine' eye shadow palette
Wet N Wild 'Catwalk Pink' Mega Glo illuminating powder
Wet N Wild 'Cherry Bomb' lipstick
Neutrogena Rainbath Rejuvenating shower and bath gel
Cat Ears
The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancy
Manchester Orchestra

I've been loving lots of new makeup this month, and I have especially been loving Wet N' Wild. I've got their highlighter, eye shadow, and lipstick on my favorites list for this month! Super affordable products and really amazing payoff. 
Bubble baths are amazing, and now that it's getting colder I thought it would be nice to recommend my favorite at the moment. The Neutrogena rainbath is incredible! 
Cat ears have been on my head practically every day of October. Great for Halloween, and for a playful look.

Lastly, two non-beauty related items. The book The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancy and the band Manchester Orchestra. 

What have you been loving?

OOTD: Perfect Purple

Skirt-Local Shop

I've decided I don't wear purple enough. When I found this skirt in a ton of different colors, I grabbed for the purple one right away! I think it's the perfect purple for fall. I've got the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in the shade 'Shameless' on my lips. It's a great drugstore purple lip balm if you're looking for one. I have no idea where any of the jewelry came from, unfortunately. It's like I look in my jewelry box and accessories just appear out of thin air! I love the chunky ring, so past Christina, you did a good job. Next time don't forget you have some gorgeous rings! And the flower in my hair was a last touch because my hair was being particularly disagreeable that day, and I needed a little something to make it work. 

I took these pics at the mall and there was a group of little girls standing right next to me, giving me a million compliments. Can I take them everywhere I go??? :D
