Estee Lauder Haul!



1. Pure Color Lipstick in '61 Pink Parfait' ( Shimmer )

2. Pure Color Lipstick in '82 Pinkberry' ( Creme )

3. Pure Color Gloss

4. Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara

5. Pure Color Eye shadow Quad 
( 79 Summer Linen ( Matte ) 47 Nude Fresco ( Satin ) 35 Hot Cinnamon ( Shimmer ) 45 Lavish Mink ( Matte ) )

So as I metioned previously, I recently went off to college, and so many family members and church members gave me either graduation gifts from my senior year or going away gifts. This was one of my gifts that I wanted to share with you guys because I have recently become obsessed with lipsticks and make up in general more than usual, and I was SO excited to receive this gift!
Estee Lauder was not really something that I thought I would be getting or ever wanting but after seeing the quality of their products I am wanting to purchase even more!
The lipsticks ( which was what I was most excited for ) are in these two gorgeous pinky shades, and I am ever so excited to wear them soon! ( Have I said excited enough? )

Now since it is becoming fall, I think I am going to purchase a brown shade and maybe a deep red, which if  I do I will surely do a post because I think they will be YSL or MAC(:
Leave comments down below with your thoughts and your favorite make up brand! Also if you have any recommendations of lipstick brands or shades because I am defiantly in the market for some new ones(:

Keep Calm and Sparkle On,

Forever 21 Earring Haul!





1. Classic Drop Leaf Earrings

2. Elegant Faux Stone Drop Earrings

3. Luxe Faux Stone Chandelier Earrings

4. Fancy Floral Studs

5. Touch-Of-Glam Faux Stone Studs ( My personal faves! )


So last week for Labor Day, Forever 21 had a BOGO sale on some clearance items, and I scored these beautys!

Now yes, there is only 5- because I bought a sixth pair and my grandma stole them from me! Lol yes, my grandma has style(;

But I am totally in LOVE with these earrings and I'm so excited to pair them with future outfits! 

And I am so freaking happy of the quality considering it came from there, but I am not complaining their items are becoming a love of mine as well as the store in general.

I just thought I would share these with you and get your opinion on them as well as what you think about Forever 21, good or bad?

Keep Calm and Sparkle On,

College.

col·lege

ˈkälij/

 noun

  1. 1.
    an educational institution or establishment, in particular.


     So you may have noticed, ( or probably not ) but I haven't made a post in almost a month. The reason is 

because I started college a couple of weeks ago and it's been crazy trying to get adjusted and everything, so I 

really haven't had time to do much of anything other than go to class and do homework. It's so much different 

than what I expected, and I am so happy that I chose to go because I love it ( at least so far. ) 

      Where I am going- which I haven't decided if I will say just yet- is not all parties ( though there are some ) and

 I am thankful. I am not the party type of girl, and I cannot picture myself going! I feel as though I belong where I 

am and I love it. Coming home and sleeping in my own bed is kind of crazy now.


      I'm not going to lie, I have not made friends as fast as I thought I was going to, but I did come with 4 of my 

other friends from school, so they are who I am with most of the time. I think it is fine to go with people that you 

already know instead of a college away from everyone because I'd rather not be alone my first day of class. 

Hopefully I will make other friends, I just have to give it time. Don't get me wrong, I do talk to people in my 

classes and things like that, but I just haven't met anyone that I would want to 'hang out' with quite yet. And 

that's okay. I kind of like having my close friends around me, then the alone time as well. 

      As far as the being on my own part goes, I am enjoying that as well. Nobody to tell me what I can and

 cannot buy or do, I have to make the good choices on my own. Also, I am rooming with my best friend, so that

 worked out to my advantage. I have come home twice since I have left, but for personal reasons, and it's kind of 

weird. But if you are in college or are going soon, don't worry- I'm sure you have made the right choice on where 

to go and you will love it(:

      If you are in college or university comment down below how well you like it, and whether you think I should 

post some tips I have in a future blog post! 

Keep Calm and Sparkle On,
