FOTD | Senior Portrait

Hello, lovelies!  Earlier this week, I was photographed for my school's senior portraits.  I kept my makeup pretty simple, as I did not want to be seen as "too done up", but I tried to accentuate my blue eyes.  And I apologize for the crappy iPhone selfies!

May Favorites

I don't have many May Favorites, because I did tend to use a lot of different products.  I usually use several products consistently, but I really mixed it up this past month.  This list is mostly new things that I've just discovered or old things that I dragged back out when I was changing things up.

Marc Jacobs Lolita Palette
Maybelline EyeStudio Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black
Lush Lip Scrub in Bubblegum
NYX BB Cream
Nars Orgasm Lip Gloss

Summer Goals

Hello, lovelies!  This blog has gotten brushed to the side for long enough!  Life got super hectic, but this summer I have a more mellow schedule, so I should be able to post more.  Often, when I write things down, I am more likely to do them, and when I post things online, I feel held accountable for them.  So consider this my Summer To-Do List, and consider yourself my accountability partner!

2. Write more (journal, letters, blog posts, etc.)
3. Travel
4. Spend time with the people I love
5. Spend time doing things for myself

2.  Take better pictures
3.  Monthly Favorites
4. Post an occasional OOTD or lifestyle post
5.  Write more reviews

Comment below with your summer goals, and we can try to hold each other accountable!
