Makeup and beauty products can be SO expensive. I'll walk out of Sephora or Ulta only having purchased two or three things and it'll easily cost me almost $100. It's sick! To be honest, I only started using higher quality, more expensive products in the past year or two because I really was never good with applying makeup  therefore never felt the need to spend tons of money on products I don't even know how to use. BB Cream? CC Cream? Baking and contouring? How do you know which makeup brush to use for what?! In the past year I have loved watching Beauty Youtubers (Some faves are Jaclyn Hill, Jeffree Star, James Charles (HI SISTERS), and Laura Lee) and I think it really helped me get so much better with makeup. Even still, it kind of hurts my soul how expensive makeup can be so I find myself saving the 'good stuff' for nights out and weekends. Here's a round up of my favorite and affordable beauty products!


Denver has been on my travel bucket list for quite some time now and I was so happy to be able to spend my 25th birthday exploring with my family! As soon as the trip was booked I went to Pinterest (no surprise there) and began creating our itinerary. Shout out to all the people who gave me SO many recommendations! This years birthday will be hard to beat. Check out my list of my list of all the things to do, places to go (outside of Denver, too!), and places to eat.


I don't think there's anything more bittersweet than summer transitioning to fall. As much as I love summer, fall will forever be my favorite. Bring on the sweater weather, fall foliage, football tailgates, candles, and pumpkin flavored everything. So I know fall isn't officially here until September 22nd but I think it's the perfect time to start purchasing some fall decor. Check out my roundup of my favorite fall items below!
