State Box with Morgan

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

Happy weekend!!!!!! Im so glad this post is finally being shared!! Ive been anticipating it for so long. Morgan from Morgan in Manhattan and I decided to collar and bring you guys this fun state box!! First off, she’s literally the sweetest person and attends FIT, where I hope to be in a couple of months. Y’all better read her blog and follow her on instagram!!!

Second, a state box is where you put things that represent your state or where you’re from and send it to someone who lives some where else. Giving them a little taste of you’re home. This was seriously so fun. I am already in love with New England (I applied to 3 schools there for this upcoming semester) its so beautiful and I dream of that weather and getting away from this Texas heat!!!

Some things I included in my box you can find on Morgan’s post. So I’m going to share what she sent me! First off, I wish I got more pictures but I was ripping through the box with excitement so fast… Anyway, when I opened it some maple leaves came out (SO CUTE!!!!!!!!) already in love. The box included, a candle that I use everyday, probably more than I should, Cape Cod chips, I’m actually obsessed with them, and some more Massachusetts goodies that I love!!!!!!!!!!! You guys, Im obsessed.

You can catch me dreaming about Massachusetts for the next couple of weeks. :)))

If you are a blogger I highly recommend getting one of your blogger friends from wherever to do this!! It was so much fun.

5 Beauty Products I Swear By

These are my go-to products. Products I use everyday and absolutely love!!!

  1. Covergirl clump crusher

This mascara I have been using forever and I will never use another!!!! Its also super cheap.

2. Clean and Clear Blackhead Eraser

This I use day and night it keeps my skin super moisturized and clear.

3.  Eye Gel 

This has diminished my dark eye circles hard core and I just started using it!!! Use it in the morning and at night.

4. Illusion Skin Tint

I talked about this foundation in one of my previous blog posts you can find HERE. But I really love it! I have dry skin, and it doesn’t dry out my skin at all. Since its a tint, its also super light weight.

5. Living Proof Dry Shampoo

Seriously the best. Since I have super dry skin, I don’t like drying out my hair even more and I only wash it 2-3 times a week. This is the perfect product just to give your hair a little more life and volume!

 

 

Every Day Dry Skin Makeup Routine

 

Now that its fall, my skin gets super dry. I already have dry skin to begin with so I always dread the fall weather + my face. Its super dry and flakey and gross. I wanted to share some products I use regularly during the fall (make up wise).

  1. I always put on vaseline! Every morning I wake up with super dry skin because I have bad allergies so areas around my nose and mouth get dry almost every day. So the first thing I do is just put vaseline on those areas.
  2. If I don’t work I use this AMAZING concealer. Its hard for me to find good foundations and concealers that don’t dry out my skin even more. So this one I highly recommend. If I am working, I use the illusion foundation. This foundation is super hydrating, I love it.
  3. Lastly, I use my favorite highlight/bronzer/blush just to finish the look!

DAY TO NIGHT LOOK: Little Black Dress 

Casual // Night Out

The perfect day to night dress is here! I love this dress because its so comfy and perfect for a busy day. Ive had this one forever but linked a similar in the outfit description. When you’re on the go and don’t have time to change between errands and a night out this dress is perfect. With the denim jacket its a casual day look. And then trade the jacket for a leather one, add some heels and a necklace, and its a completely different outfit. Everyone needs the perfect LBD in their closet- this one is a must.

HEY!! Its my first athleisure look on the blog (crazy because this is all I wear when I’m not working…) And today I’m going to be sharing my workout routine! This is my go-to when Im not feeling my best at the gym. I usually do this when I only have a little bit of workout time in my super busy day!

About the look: These are the most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. They are apart of the J.Crew x New Balance collection. They’re running shorts so they are shorter BUT they have built in spandex which makes them soooooo comfy. This top is also the best and comes in lots of colors!! My shoes are too cute and my favorite colors, navy and rose gold, I love love love them!!!!!! I got my jacket last year from Athleta and I love it. I love that its structured and super flattering!

BBG: BBG stands for Bikini Body Guide. This is a workout program created by Kayla Itsines. I first started BBG last year and never finished… it is a 12 week program and some times life just gets in the way. I think I got to around week 8 or 9. I really like the program because it built my muscle up and for me its just easier to have a workout set right in front of me to follow instead of just going to the gym with no set and just doing whatever. I really really love how the program is organized. I would definitely recommend it! The workouts are only 30-minutes long so it makes for a perfect quick sweat sesh 🙂
