I'm Back! Rave: Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation by Covergirl

Hi guys!  I'm back from a little summer break.  I'll start off by sharing a drugstore product that I absolutely love - Ready Set Gorgeous by Covergirl (A surprise, after slamming Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion in my last post).  I usually cover up my discoloration with concealer (I'll go in-depth about concealers my next post) and then dab just a pea-sized amount of the Ready Set Gorgeous foundation onto my favorite Tarte brush.  I get a very natural but flawless looking finish with the foundation.  I am going to stress  the importance of using concealer with this foundation to cover up discoloration. When I have tried to use a large amount this foundation for fuller coverage (and light usage of concealer) - I didn't love the look of the foundation.  A pea-sized amount (with concealer underneath to help provide fuller coverage if you need it) will lead you one step closer to an almost flawless complexion!  The one issue with this foundation, as with many foundations, is the color selection.  I find myself in between two colors and the range is limited.  Have you tried this foundation, what do you think?

Mascara Disappointment: Covergirl Lashblast Fusion

It's not often that I blog about products that I do not like, I try to keep this blog a positive place! I live for big, bold lashes.  As such, I have tried so many mascara's over the year always searching for something better than my all time favorite mascara, the original Covergirl Lashblast.  I thought, why not try another Lashblast product?  But I've run into a mascara that I really just don't like!  I'm looking atCovergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara.  The product claims to lengthen and volumize, but it falls extremely short of it's claims.  Unlike its sister mascara, Lashblast Fusion doesn't hold a curl and the mascara doesn't layer well at all.  No matter how many layers I apply, my eyelashes remain the same. I love that with the original Lashblast I can layer the product to achieve my desired look - from natural, fluttery lashes to bold, almost-false lashes.  While trying new mascara can be extremely fun or severely disappointing, I think I've learned my lesson.  I'll be sticking to the original Covergirl Lashblast for a long time.  Have you tried any disappointing beauty products recently?

Summer Shopping

I'm starting to get my wardrobe ready for summer.  Think cute patterned shorts, lightweight dresses, and denim jackets.  Since the items that I look for in the summer seasons are rather trendy items, I don't like to invest too much money in any one piece.  Below are some of my favorite websites to shop for summer clothing.  I've been stalking them daily for outfit inspiration.  I'm recommending these websites because they stock some of the cutest pieces (and super trendy too) at rather affordable prices:

If I want to spend a little bit more I love lulus!

I just picked up these shorts from Tobi and I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival in the mail.

These are my go-to style of shorts in the summer.  The material is light and the elastic waist is flattering and extremely comfortable.  I absolutely adore the pompom detail at the bottom and the bright tie-dye print is super fun!  I'm planning on pairing the short with an oversized gray V-neck, for a comfortable and laid back summer look.  I just hope that the pink isn't too bright in person!  

Still on my shopping list for this summer is a new denim jacket.  The tricky thing about a denim jacket is choosing the right shade of denim, I'm thinking a medium denim, but I have yet to find the perfect one.  Oh, and I want to find a funky brooch to pin onto one of the jacket's pockets!
