What’s in My Sephora VIB Shopping Cart

Sephora insider shopping event 2017

I love it when Sephora does their Insider shopping event!  I try out new products that I’ve been looking at and stock up on some favorite must haves.

1. Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette

I have been wanting to try her eyeshadows for a while.  I keep hearing rave reviews.  I love this smaller palette of 5 colors.  It also comes in many different color schemes.

2. YSL Lipstick

I recently got a YSL lipstick and I’m obsessed!  They really do have the best nude shades.  They are so creamy and gorgeous!!

3. Tom Ford Lip Balm

I love tinted lip balms for summer.  It’s a great way to keep my lips hydrated while keeping the overall makeup look light and fresh.  I like to wear something like this to the pool or beach.

4. YSL The Shock Volumizing Mascara

I just got this mascara and I’m can’t get enough!!  I had to share it with you all!  I’m getting another tube to have a backup in my purse.

5. Ardency Inn Eyeliner

The best black eyeliner ever!  Goes on smooth with no tugging and stays aaaaaalllllll day.  Mine is running low so I’m picking up another one.

6. Givenchy Bronzer

With summer right around the corner I start to get obsessed with bronzers.  This one just came out and it looks gorgeous.  Anything to give me that summer sun kissed bronzed look.

7. Natasha Denona Sunset Eyeshadow Palette

This looks so gorgeous!!!!!!

8. Cover FX Setting Powder

My favorite setting powder!  I’ve been using it for at least 6 months.  It’s running low, time to get more :)

9. Cover FX Natural Finish Foundation

I just started wearing this foundation a couple weeks ago and it is my absolute favorite foundation!  I don’t know how it took me so long to find this?!  It is an absolutely gorgeous finish!  I am shade p20 for reference.

10. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Perfume

My holy grail favorite perfume ever!  I’ve been out of it for a while.  It’s time to get it again!

11. Tatcha Sunscreen

My favorite face sunscreen.  I used it every day last summer.  Need to get another bottle for this summer.

12. Amika Dry Shampoo

Love this dry shampoo!  It smells so good and isn’t to drying.

13. GlamGlow Setting Spray

I’ve been ride or die for the Urban Decay setting spray for years.  This one just came out and I’ve heard all the former UD setting spray lovers are switching over to this one.  This is definitely one I need to try!

14. Bare Minerals Lipgloss

One of the best lipglosses on the market!  I absolutely love their formula.  Definitely picking up another one or two in some fun shades.

15. Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil

I have always wanted to try this.  I love the idea of my skin glistening and glowing all summer long!

I’ve been on a big denim kick lately.  I’ve been trying different brands and on the hunt for a new favorite pair of jeans.  Last week I shared my favorite white denim.  Today I want to talk about my favorite dark denim.

This pair from DL1961 is amazing!  They are the perfect rise, so comfortable and no weird fading… just normal dark denim.  They are an incredible fit with the right amount of stretch yet snug to hold you in, super slimming!

Denim Jacket & Aviators

One piece that has remained in my closet for many years is this oversized denim jacket.  My jacket is probably 5 years old and I still wear it several times a week.  An oversized ripped denim jacket is an absolute must for me!

I am totally obsessed with these aviators!!!  I wear them constantly and have them in every color!  I wear them even more than my designer aviators.  And the fact that they are $60 makes it even better!

Instagram Lately…

jaclyn hill sister

rachel barkules

My birthday is April 11th.  Last weekend John and my sister, Jaclyn, gave me the biggest surprise and the best birthday weekend EVER!  The weekend started on Friday when my bff, Kristen, flew down from Chicago and surprised me!!  I had no idea she was coming!

Then on Saturday they surprised with a limo that picked up all up.  We went to dinner then out dancing all night.  I love to go out dancing but I rarely make the time to go do it.  It was such a fun night and the best birthday ever!!  I feel so blessed to have such amazing friends and family!!!!

My Dress: Here & Here (this dress runs small, I had to size up)

road trip to Miami

Two weeks ago we planned a last minute girls trip to Miami.  We were only gone for 2 days, the perfect amount of time!  We had such a fun time being silly and laughing the whole time!

My leggings are so comfy!  They suck you in in all the right places and make your figure look amazing!

snapchat try on

I tried something brand new, I did a try on session on snapchat.  I usually place a big order every 3-4 weeks to get new contact for my blog.  I thought it would be fun to try it all on on snapchat and show you what I love and what doesn’t look so good.  Your response was very loud in a positive way :). I will continue to do them!

weekend street style

This is my go to outfit for the weekends.  This is my favorite tee, I own more than 5 colors.  It wears amazing!  I’ve owned some of them over a year and they still look brand new.  These jeans broke in within 1 week of owning them and now feel like pj’s.  Seriously can’t stop wearing them!

Dressy Casual Spring Look

DRESS: A by Amanda | SHOES: Here (similar) | JACKET: Express | BAG: Chanel, similar Here | NECKLACE: Kendra Scott, similar under $50 | BRACELET: Here

I love a white dress for spring and summer!  It’s a blank canvas to wear whatever color you want.  I love adding fun colors to make my outfit fun and happy.  You can also keep it classic with gold or silver jewelry if colorful jewelry is outside your comfort zone.

A dress like this is awesome!  You can dress it up or down.  It would look really cute with a pair of sneakers for a more casual look.  Throw on a denim jacket or wear it without.  This dress is a great closet staple.
