Turban Headband: H&M $17 (sold out online), Shirt: JCrew Factory $30 (sale), Jeans: Express $30 (sale), Flats: Target $28, Bag: Michael Kors
 Good morning, happy Tuesday!
 I've recently become obsessed with two things, brunchin' and headbands. I purchased this turban headband from H&M a couple weeks ago, when they debuted their Conscious Exclusive line, and finally wore it this past Sunday [Funday]. It's such a fun and easy accessory. I paired it with another obsession of mine, the collar shirt, for more of a casual look. I cant wait for the weather to really heat up so I can wear it again with dresses, skirts, and maybe even a high waist swim suit.
Hope you all have a great week! Talk to you soon!

Spring Beauty Haul

Good morning loves! Today I wanted to share with you some items that I purchased recently at Nordstrom Rack, Walgreens, and Target. Some of these beauty finds are a few of my all time favs and some I am trying out for the 1st time. A new season always calls for a makeup purge and haul. So here goes...
{NYX products were purchased at Nordstrom Rack and Stay Matte Foundation was purchased at Target.}
I've been VERY happy with my Revlon PhotoReady Foundation for over a year now. I will admit that my oily "T Zone" does get the best of me by the end of the day but I was willing to deal with it because I love this foundation so much. Then all of a sudden everyone on my Instagram was talking about Rimmel London's Stay Matte mousse foundation, so I had to try it. OMG what a God send! So light, so natural feeling, and my "T Zone" is under control! Perfect for these hot months ahead of us. Oh, how could I was only $5! So yes, I made the #StayMatteSwitch!
So I totally forgot that Nordstrom Rack sells makeup, duh! So I picked up these fun lippies, bronzer and blush duo, and matte finishing spray. Loooove them all! Especially the lipsticks which are incredible. I love a matte lipstick that isn't dry and these are very smooth.
{All products were purchased from Walgreens}
So my sister in law texted over the weekend me telling to rush over to Walgreens because they were having a BOGO 50% off sale. I went only for the Loreal lipsticks but ending up getting a few more "necessary" items. LOL If I could go back I would of left the eye shadow. It's pretty but not as pigmented as I wanted but hey, you live and you learn.

{Both products were purchased from Target}
Every year during the Spring I buy a bottle of Jergens Natural Glow moisturizer. I've used it since high school and I love it! I always get the one for medium to tan skin tones and its worked really well. The change isn't drastic, like a day out tanning would be, but it is a nice gradual glow. It's a great way of adding color to my legs during that awkward time when it's warm enough to have bare legs but not warm enough to lay out and tan.
I've been in search for a pore minimizer for a while now. I saw a commercial for this Pore Refining toner and thought I would give it a try. I've only used it a few times so no real results yet (hopefully) but it does leave my skin clean and bright after every use.
What are your favorite Spring beauty products? Let me know in the comments below :)
Have a great day!

Cherry Blossom Festival

Hey guys! I wanted to share with you some photos of when we went to the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC. It was absolutely beautiful! The flowers are in bloom for a few weeks and then they are replaced with leaves. It happens so fast. So if you are in the DC area make sure to take a walk by the tidal basin or drive through for a peek. It is definitely worth the trip.

Spring Fling

Bracelet-Ring Decoration: H&M $6
{Dress: H&M $25, Belt: JCrew Factory $17.50, Sandals: Target $20, Purse: Target (old), Sunnies: Cole Haan via Century 21 $20, Lips: Wet n Wild #970 
This outfit right here is a perfect example of why I loooove Spring! I wore this to A-Town in Arlington for brunch on Sunday. (BTW-soooooo much fun! #SundayFunday) Since the dress itself is very simple, I added a few small details to make the outfit pop. I also added the belt to give me more of a shape because the dress is so airy. It felt good to finally let my legs breathe! I cant wait for more days like this.
After taking photos for the blog we took some for Angel's personal account. Here are a few of my favs :)

Have a great day!
