5 PRODUCTS I AM LOVING.

5 products I'm loving

1. BENEFIT 'ERASE PASTE' | 2. LIP FUSION XXL | 3. OLAY REGENERIST | 4. GRANDE LASH | 5. TARTE 'SMOOTH OPERATOR'

It's been a while since I did a product haul! These 5 items are currently in heavy rotation in my beauty routine. In fact, I have been using all of them for a few months now (some even longer!) and they are all products that yield real results for me that I would highly recommend to friends & fam...aka you guys. HI! Lemme break it down.

1. BENEFIT 'ERASE PASTE': This stuffff. You guys. My friend Ashley introduced me to this little miracle worker and I love it so much. It covers the puffiest and most tired of eyes. Sometimes I wear just this on a day off and I feel totally fine showing my face in public. I got it in 'Fair' because I like for my under-eye area to be lighter than the rest of my face.

2. LIP FUSION XXL: I ordered this pretty recently and have been using it religiously. It makes your lips plump almost instantly, but my favorite part about it is that it has long-lasting effects giving you fuller lips the longer you use it. All about those Kylie Jenna lips.

3. OLAY REGENERIST MOISTURIZER: I have been using Olay for-ev-er. I used to sneak pumps of my mom's night cream when I was little and now it is a constant staple in my routine. I have pretty dry skin so I definitely need moisturizer, but I hateee to feel greasy. This is heavy enough to use at bedtime, but also light enough that I can use it in the morning under my make-up. Plus, you can just scoop it from CVS. Love a good drugstore buy.

4. GRANDE LASH SERUM: I have raved about this before, but I am still loving it and still seeing results so I had to include it in this post! I use this at night before bed and I swear you guys, my lashes are so long that even the girl that does my eyebrows asked if I had lash extensions. It works.

5. TARTE 'SMOOTH OPERATOR': This is another fave I have had for as long as I can remember. I apply it with this brush after I put on my foundation and concealer, but before my bronzer. It sets everything, removes shine and keeps my make-up in place longer.

So there you have it. Also, I have been thinking about doing a make-up tutorial. Any interest? Ooh you girls keep me young. Kisses!

SUMMER LINGERIE STAPLES WITH KOHL'S.

Let's face it, during the summer, what you wear under your clothes can be just as important as your outfit choice. It can be SO hard to find the right lingerie that is both functional in hotter temps and pretty to look at, so I have partnered with Kohl's to bring you a few summa-suggestions.

KOHL'S SUMMER LINGERIE

Aside from comfort of fit, the single most important factor in buying lingerie is FIT. I can't stress this enough. Get measured. Try on lots of sizes, not just the size you think you are. Nothing ruins a cute top like having an extra bulge caused by an ill-fitting bra, am I right?! 

One of the best things about Kohl's is that they carry Cosabella, one of my all time favorite lingerie brands. (It's also a celeb fave! If you're into that sort of thing..) Cosabella has the absolute softest, most comfortable and breathable line of bras and undies I have ever found. Perfect to go under your summer wardrobe. Let's breakdown a few of the styles I swear by:

1| THE BANDEAU: I live for a bandeau in the summer. They are perfect under a swingy tank or dress, but can also act as a part of your outfit with a backless top or a low v-neck. I have these in legitimately every color of the rainbow, plus about 136 in black.

2| WIRE FREE BRA: I sleep in these every single night. Cannot get enough of these soft, but sexy little bralettes.

3| THE BALCONET: This sexy little option is a favorite of mine for a night out. The scalloped cups are so pretty, you almost don't want to cover them at all...but ya know, that would be trashy guys, come on.

4| THE LACE THONG: The lace thong is my go-to everyday choice. They are so soft and stretchy, but also thin enough to avoid that embarrassing VPL, as my mom would say.

5| THE SEXY HIPSTER: This is a dressier version of my favorite sleep short. I love the strappy detailing on the side!

6| THE SLEEP SHORT: The other half of my sleeping attire. I lovee these little lace shorts. They are so comfortable for sleeping, but are also breathable and light enough to keep you cool when it's 95 degrees outside.

It's easy to forget about what lies beneath your clothes, but honestly, as I've gotten older, what I wear underneath has become so much more important to me. Comfort is key, but wearing the right undergarments can also make your outfits fit better, and therefore, look better! Who doesn't want that!?

#NSALE PICKS ARE HERE!

The Nordstrom Annual Sale kicks off tomorrow (FriYAY for real!) a.m. for the general public, and believe me when I tell you, this is better than Christmas, your birthday and your graduation all mixed in one. I have been pre-saling so hard, because ya know, I'm a cardholder. Just like Carrie Bradshaw taught us, I like my money right where I can see it..hanging in my closet. Shop my top picks below. Each picture is clickable and lists the SALE price underneath!

I seriously live in these AG jeans and they are almost $100 off. Cannot beat it. Two more items I decided I couldn't live without today were this jacket and this cardigan. I truly need to be stopped. How many items will be sacrificed before I am done shopping the Nordstrom sale? The limit does not exist.

LOOKALIKES: TELL ME ABOUT IT, [ROCK]STUD.

I have had my heart set on these babies since the moment I laid my underpaid eyes on them. You can imagine my utter devastation when I saw the price tag. I was driven to drink, and then I was driven to find a more affordable pair that would fit the bill without breaking it. VOILA. I am nothing if not resourceful, people.

TAN SANDALS / BLACK SANDALS

Buy one, buy them all. Your bank account will thank you. Happy weekending, Gilties.

SUNNY SIDE UP.

Happy Cinco de Mayo, my little bambinos! Wait, I think bambino is actually Italian. WELL. I don't know about y'all, but cinco is by far my favorite de Mayo, because let's be honest, no one has ever understood May Day. If queso isn't involved, I am not really interested. Grab yourself a marg (hold the salt, because puffy face) and let's talk jumpsuits, shall we?

JUMPSUIT / EARRINGS / ENVELOPE CLUTCH (SIMILAR HERE AND HERE) / TASSEL HEELS

If it was acceptable to live in a jumpsuit, I would. I ordered this one during my "People vs. OJ Simpson" watching spree and literally died laughing when I put it on because it reminded me so much of Johnny Cochran's collection of silk pajamas. That man DRESSED for bed, let me tell you. I also lovingly refer to it as Colonel Mustard, but honestly, it is one of my favorite purchases this year. It is under $40 and could not be more comfortable, plus you don't even need a bra. Funny story...I wore this to a wedding and forgot pasties, so I wore x-shaped band-aids underneath. I looked like a budget super-hero. Do as I say guys, not as I do. 

GOLDEN 'GRAMS.

Hi my Gilties! I am back from what feels like 3 weeks of traveling (dramatic), and am playing catch up like nobody's business. Miami was amazing. The weather was perfect, and there is something so great about a group of girlfriends that can spend most of the year apart, but come back together and laugh like absolutely zero time has passed. I am very thankful for my favorite five, that is for sure.

One of the hardest things about beach packing for me is remembering to bring anything to wear during the day that isn't a bikini or a cover-up. (But speaking of cover-ups...I am very much obsessed with this one I just got before my trip! Looks way more expensive than $19.99!) This amazing jumpsuit from Show Me Your Mumu is perfect to throw on for lunch or to wear out for dinner. I was sold on the print alone before I even saw the whole outfit. It's also on sale! I got an XS, but it does run slightly small in the waist, so I would recommend going up a size if you want it to be less squeezy and more breezy.

It also comes in pants and a dress...I am dying for the pants! Tax return? Hi. Could you hurry it up?

SHOPBOP FRIENDS + FAMILY SALE!

SHOPBOP Friends & Family is here again! Can you feel your wallet tingling? Mine is like, "Are you mental? Don't even look in my direction." So in the interest of Spring-saving, this is my little round-up of faves under $200. You can shop each by clicking the pics! Weee.

This weekend, I am jetting off (doesn't that sound fancy? I'll be in coach, but it's nice to dream) to Miami with my favorite five, so I grabbed a few things for myself. I cannot lie. This is the perfect time to bag those One Teaspoon shorts you've been eyeing (me), or splurge a little on a new fresh pair of sunnies before temps hit one hundo.
