Three Recent Looks, Dito Cosmetics Venus Palette

Hi everyone,

Today I have one of my favorite posts for you, a Three Recent Looks. This time with the Dito Cosmetics Venus Palette. I got this palette in my BoxyCharm box last month and instantly liked it when I saw it. I’m a huge space nerd and this appeals to that side of me.

You get a good size mirror with this palette, which is always a plus and it’s actually a really good mirror for a palette. 

IMG_9036

This is a 12 pan palette with 5 different finishes, there’s matte, shimmery, creamy, ultra shiny glitter and shimmer with sparkle. Because this palette was inspired by Venus there is a bit of diversity with the color range, so you do get the option to create some fun and different looks.

So for the first look I wanted to do something with the golds in the palette and I’m really happy with how it came out. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set it with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder

For the rest of my face, I first bronzed using the Nars bronzer in Laguna. I used the blush from the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee and highlighted using the Touch In Sol Glowdient Palette and mixing together the first two shades.

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I moved into the Venus Palette and first applied Phobos in the crease. Because I wanted a darker brown on the outer corner I went into the ColourPop Limoncello Palette, took the shade Vespa and packed that onto the outer corner of my eye, bringing it up into the crease just a little. For the rest of my lid I applied Jupiter and for a little extra glitter, dabbed a little bit of Deimos. I then brought Vespa under my eye about three quarters of the way and for the rest and into the inner corner of my eye I applied Jupiter. I lined my eyes using the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I wanted a lighter brown for my lips, so I first lined them with the Vintage Cosmetics by Jessica Liebeskind Cashmere Lip Pencil in Mocha and filled them in with the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Bombshell. I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

For my second look I really wanted to play with the fun colors and do something the pinky shades and purples. The first thing I did was prime my face with the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder. 

IMG_9215

For the rest of my face, the first thing I did was bronze using the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. I then applied the Too Faced Daydreamer blush and highlighted with the Touch In Sol Glowdient Palette, using a mix of the first and third shades. 

IMG_9218

IMG_9224

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Elizabeth Mott Cosmetics Eyeshadow Primer. Because I wanted a berry shade in the crease, I went into the Huda Beauty Ruby Obsessions Palette and first used the darker shade (first shadow in the middle row) and to lighten it up just a bit, blended that with the lighter berry shade (last shadow in the third row). Then I went into the Venus Palette and because I wanted a purple shade, took Europa and packed it onto the outer corner of my eye, blending it up into the crease just a little bit. For the rest of my lid I applied Kallisto and topped it with Venus, which is such a gorgeous topper. I brought Europa under my eye about halfway and the rest of the way and into the inner corner of my eye I applied Kallisto mixed with Venus. I lined my eyes with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara. I wanted a lighter lip with this look, so I first lined them with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Nude Lip Liner and filled them in with the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Muneca. And I set everything with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray.

I did the third look when it was a colder, more fall like day, so I went for the orangey/brown fall vibes. The first thing I did was prime my face using the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder. 

IMG_9215

For the rest of my face I used the Ofra Mini Mix Face Palette in Good To Go. The bronzer is in the shade Current, the blush in the shade Intentions and the highlighter, which I used the top, bottom and shade on the left side, is in the shade All Of The Lights. It’s such a great and versatile palette. 

IMG_9220

IMG_9226

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eyeshadow Primer. I then went into the Venus Palette and first used Mercury in the crease, it’s a nude shade, but I wanted to bring a little brightness. I then took Phobos and packed it onto the outer corner of my eye, bringing it into the crease just a little. It was looking a little light at that point, so I mixed in just a bit of Vespa from the ColourPop Limoncello Palette. For the rest of my eye I applied Mars topped with a dab of Moon. Looking at it you might wonder why I used Moon because it is a pinker shade, but it has some gold flecks in it that really come through if you have a light hand and it added a lot to the look. I then brought the Phobos/Vespa mix under my eye about half way and for the other half and into the inner corner of my eye applied the Mars/Moon combo. I lined my eyes with the BellaPierre Cosmetics Liquid Liner in Black and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. I wanted a lighter nudey/brown lip so I first lined my lips with the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Nude Lip Liner and filled them in with the Sophia + Mabelle Hydrating Hybrid Lipstick in Topless. I set everything with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray.

IMG_9169

That about wraps it up for this post, I really do like this palette, I think it’s a lot of fun and the shades are pigmented, blend well and you get a nice color payoff. I know that Dito Cosmetics has themed palettes similar to this one, so I’m definitely going to look at those. Like I said, I really like doing these posts so look out for more in the future. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).

4th of July Makeup Look

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to Recent Look post on my 4th of July makeup look. I always do a festive makeup look for the 4th, trying to make it different than the previous year, and I’m really happy with the one I did this year. I think it was really fun and it came out great.

So the first thing I did for this look was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Next I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory followed by my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

IMG_8774

For the rest of my face the first thing I did was bronze using the Nars Bronzer in Laguna. I applied the blush from the e.l.f Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee and highlighted using the first two shades from the Touch In Sol Glowdient Makeup Palette, mixed together. 

IMG_8775

IMG_8777

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime them using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the Pur Festival 2.0 Palette and took the shade Photo Op, a nude/brown, as a transition shade, putting it in the crease and blending it out just a bit. Then I went into the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette and took the shade Noir, which is a dark blue/black, put it on the outer corner of my eye and brought it in just a little bit. I then went back into the Pur Festival 2.0 Palette and took the shade Electric, a sparkly dark blue with a black shift, and put it on half of my eyelid. For the other half of my eyelid and the inner corner of my eye, I went back to the ABH Sultry Palette and grabbed Cyborg, a sparkly silver shade. I then took Noir, Electric and Cyborg and put them under my eye, matching where they were on my lid. I lined my eyes with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I obviously wanted a red lip, and for that I used the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Famous Red. This is a new lip color for me, I’ve only worn it once, and I didn’t line my lips because I wanted the full effect of the lipstick and because it’s in pencil form you don’t always have to. And to set everything I used the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you did a festive makeup look for the 4th I’d love to know what you did. 

Until next time, have fun creating different makeup looks and I hope you had a fun 4th :).

Three Recent Looks, Malibu Barbie x ColourPop Palette

Hi everyone,

Today I have one of my favorite types of posts, a Three Recent Looks, this time with the Malibu Barbie x ColourPop palette. This is one of those palettes that gives me all the nostalgia because I loved Barbie as a kid and as an adult it’s nice to see a quality brand making a Barbie collection and giving us the makeup we always wanted as kids.

So the first thing I did was prime my face using the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. I then applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set it with my Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

For the third look I did something that if you guys have been reading these Three Recent Looks posts, you know I like, and that is a champagne and peach look. I do generally like this color combo and if these shades happen to appear in a palette, then I like to test them out and see how they look together. For my face the first thing I did was prime using the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. I then applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

St. Patrick’s Day Makeup Look

Hi everyone,

Today I have one of my favorite posts to do, a makeup looks post! This one is going to focus on the look I did recently for St. Patrick’s Day. I always like to do fun and festive looks and for holidays like St. Patrick’s Day I feel like there’s so many possibilities, which I love, and I really like the way this look turned out.

Starting with the base of my face, the first thing I did was prime using the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory, my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything using the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.

For the rest of my face I first bronzed using the Nars bronzer in Laguna, then I applied my Too Faced blush in Makeup & Be Merry and Too Faced highlighter in Angel Kisses.

The first thing I did for my eyes was prime and for that I used the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. So for this look I wanted to use multiple greens, so in total I used four different eyeshadow palettes. The first one I went into is the Mini Pro Pigment Palette Vol 2 from the ABH/Norvina Collection and from that I used the green that’s in the middle of the top row, A2, and that is a matte lime green. I took that and put it in the crease. Then I went into the Ace Beaute Nostalgia Palette and I used Theme Park which is a really pretty matte emerald-ish green and I put that in the crease as well and brought it down a little bit to the outer corner of the eye. For the outer corner specifically I wanted a dark shadow that was still green, so I went into one of the e.l.f. Bite Size Eyeshadow Palettes, Hot Jalapeno, and used the dark green. It’s like a gray green and I packed that on the outer corner and brought it in just a little bit. For the rest of my eye I knew I wanted a sparkly gold, but I didn’t just want any gold, so I looked through different palettes and ended up going with the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party Palette and the shade Kiss & Caramel. This is a really pretty medium gold and it’s super buildable. I then took Theme Park and the gray green from Hot Jalapeno and blended those under my eye and brought them about halfway, then used Kiss & Caramel for the other half and in the inner corner of my eye. I used the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper to line my eyes and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. I wanted a neutral/brown lip to offset all the color on my eyes, so I first lined my lips using the Beauty Vaulte Lip Liner in Kozy Kira then used the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Venus and I set the whole look with the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray

That about wraps it up for this post, if you did a fun makeup look for St. Patrick’s Day I’d love to see what you did. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many green eyeshadows :).

e.l.f. MintMelt Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun post, we’re going to be reviewing one of the new e.l.f. MintMelt Eyeshadow palettes. The new e.l.f. Mint Collection has a ton of great stuff in it, and I’m probably going to be trying out a few more things, but the thing that caught my eye immediately was the MintMelt Eyeshadow palettes. There are two of these, Chocolate Mint and Mint To Be, they’re the same size as the Bite Size Eyeshadow palettes so you get 4 shadows and they are $4.00 each.

IMG_7245

This is the Mint To Be palette, it has two shimmers and two mattes. 

IMG_7246

I really like the color story in this palette, cool toned palettes are always nice to add to the collection. 

IMG_7247

So the first shadow we have is a sparkly mint green. This is really pretty and I think it would look really pretty on. Next to that is a really light sparkly green that has a little bit of white/silver in it. Then there’s a matte light mint, I really like this shadow, I think it’s going to look really nice on. And the last shadow in the palette is a gray/green. Sometimes gray/greens tend to look a little muddy, but this one seems like it’s nicely mixed and it swatched nicely. 

IMG_7248

 I have to say that based off of the swatches alone I’m not the most excited about this palette. I do think it’s so pretty and I had such high hopes for it, but when I swatched the shimmers, I really had to dig in to get them to show up. I’m not used to that with e.l.f. palettes, normally the formulation of the mattes and shimmers is fantastic but these shimmers didn’t hold up to what I’m used to. I am still going to use it, and the mattes were smooth and nicely formulated. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if you’ve tried anything from the Mint Collection I’d love to know what and what you thought of it. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).

Blogmas Day Eleven: 3 Recent Holiday Looks

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eleven! Today I’m going to be showing you 3 festive looks that I’ve done during December. I already have my Christmas Day Makeup figured out, but if you don’t, hopefully this post will give you a little inspiration.

The first look I did was gold. I have quite a few gold shadows I could’ve used, but I went with a bold gold. The first thing I did was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory and my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory. And set it with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper.

IMG_6883

For the rest of my face I first bronzed and to do that I used the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. I then went into the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee for my blush and highlighter. This blush is a nice light/medium pink and it’s nicely buildable. And the highlighter is a nice gold with a little bit of rosiness.

IMG_6887

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime and to do that I used the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer. Then I went into the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette and the first thing I did was take the matte nude shade and put it all over my lid. Then I took a light brown and put it in the crease. I then used a dark chocolaty brown and packed that on the outer corner of the eye and brought it a little bit into the crease. For the rest of my eye I applied the bright gold. I then took that chocolatey brown under my eye and brought it about two-thirds of the way in and put the gold on the remaining third and in the inner corner of my eye. I then lined my eyes using the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in Blacquer and topped it off with the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume mascara. Because it’s the holidays all of these looks feature red lipstick and for this look I used the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red and I set the entire look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime and for that I used the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette and I put the nude shadow all over my lids. Then I put a light brown shadow in the crease, just to have a background shade and a little bit of depth. Then I applied the shimmery emerald green all over my lid. It’s such a pretty color and translates really well from pan to eye. To mix it up a little I went into the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party palette and from that took Nooks & Cranberries, a matte red shade, and put that under the entirety of my eye and then put the white shimmery shade form the e.l.f. palette in the inner corner of my eye. To line my eyes I used the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black and topped off the eyes with the Tarte Maneater Mascara. For my lips I applied the MAC Matte Lipstick in 612, Russian Red. And I set the entire look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

And for the third look I wanted to do something that mixed a couple of colors so I went with a red and gold look. For my face, I used the same products that I used in the first look. 

IMG_6883

For the rest of my face I applied the Too Faced Extra Toasty Bronzer, Too Faced Daydreamer Blush and e.l.f. highlighter in Lychee. 

IMG_6892

IMG_6894

For my eyes I first primed using the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer. Then I went into the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party palette and took the nude shade, Cream Filling, and put it all over my eye. I then went into Nooks & Cranberries and put it in the crease lightly, then I packed it on the outer corner and the inner corner of my eye. In the middle I left a space and put Icing On Top, it’s a very pretty gold. To line my eyes I used the Marc Jacobs Highliner in Blacquer and I topped it off with the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara. I applied the YSL Tatouage Couture in 5 Rosewood Gang on my lips and set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

Blogmas Day Seven: Christmas Day Makeup

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Seven! Today I’m going to be showing you my Christmas Day makeup. Christmas Day for me is a very chill day, no real dressing up, just leggings and comfy clothes but I do like to do a fun makeup look. I did go back and forth between a few different look ideas, and I’m happy with the one I chose.

For this look the first thing I did was prime my face, and to do that I used the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. This is nicely hydrating and gives you a good glow under your foundation. The next thing I did was apply my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless foundation in 205, Ivory and my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory. To set all of that I used the Ofra Cosmetics Banana Powder.

IMG_6836

For the rest of my face I started by bronzing with the Benefit Hoola bronzer. Then I used the e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee for my blush and highlight. The blush is a light/medium pink, it’s very buildable and the highlight is gold with a little bit of rosiness to it. 

IMG_6837

IMG_6839

For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went in to the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette and first used the matte nude shadow all over my eyes. Then I used the matte medium brown shade in the crease and the dark chocolate brown shade a little bit in the crease and packed on the outer corner of my eye. For the rest of the lid I used the neutral shimmer and packed it on and on top of that I used the bright shimmery white, for some extra sparkle. I then took the chocolate brown and put it under my eye about 2/3 of the way and from there up to the inner corner I applied the neutral shimmer. For the actual inner corner I put just a little bit of the white shimmer and I also put some of that on my brown bone. I lined my eyes using the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer and topped it off with the Tarte Maneater mascara. I’m currently testing out this mascara and so far I’m liking it. I wanted to do red lipstick, so for this look I used the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red and I set the entire look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

Blogmas Day Three: Red Lipstick and Liner Collection

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Three! As one of the essentials for the holiday season is red lipstick, I thought it would be fun to show you my current collection of red liners and lipsticks.

IMG_6740

Starting with liners, the one red liner I have is the Beauty Vaulte liner in Natty Nat. As far as tone, this is a pretty true and classic red that goes with a lot of the lipsticks in my collection, but I also really like it as and all over lip color.

Going into lipsticks, the first one we have is the NYX Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in Red Haute. This is a nice warm red. These lipsticks are nicely pigmented and are infused with mango and shea butter so you get 4 hours of hydration.

Moving on, the next lipstick we have is the e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Carpet. This is a lipstick that I’ve repurchased many times over the years. This is really rich and creamy when you put it on and the color is very vibrant. e.l.f. lipsticks have a great formula and I always recommend them if someone is looking for a good drugstore lipstick.

Next up we have the Sephora Collection Matte Lipstick in 23-Cabin Fever/23-After Hours. This is a darker red and I really like it. It’s so pigmented and long lasting and during the holidays and during college football season, this is a lipstick I wear a lot.

Next up we have the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Maple. Bite Beauty did discontinue their Amuse Bouche lipsticks, I believe it was to reformulate and from what I understand they’re supposed to be relaunching sometime soon. I have quite a few of the Amuse Bouche lipsticks and I really like the formulation and pigmentation of them all. This one is a darker red, ever so slightly than the SC Cabin Fever, and it’s so pretty.

The last of the bullet lipsticks is the MAC Matte Lipstick in 640, Red Rock. This is the first MAC lipstick I’ve had and when I was shopping for it there was no question in my mind that I had to buy a red because MAC does red so well. This shade in particular is a really classic, true red and it’s just so good in every way.

The second to last lipstick we have is the YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Lip Stain in 5-Rosewood Gang. This is a lip stain so it’s a little bit lighter and I do like to layer it, but it stands up well to that and doesn’t get gloppy. Color wise this looks red on me, but it does have some pink/purple undertones. I’m actually running low and I need to pick up another one.

And the last lipstick we have is the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red. This is a liquid lipstick in a matte finish with shea butter that is super pigmented. This lipstick feels very light on the lips, which I appreciate and I do like the cushion applicator.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you have any of the same lipsticks let me know which and if not I’d love to know what your favorite red lipstick is for the holidays :).

Blogmas Day Two: Black Friday Haul

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Two! Today we’re going to be doing a Black Friday haul. I did a bit of shopping during Black Friday and Cyber Monday and most of it was Christmas gifts for others, so the few things that I bought for myself is what I’m going to be showing you today.

IMG_6722

You’ll notice that I included the e.l.f. Haute Chocolate Eyes Sugar Cookie palette in this picture and that’s because I did buy it during a pre-Black Friday sale and originally this post was supposed to be the first one of Blogmas, but I was still waiting for a few things to be delivered so I swapped the posts. I will link yesterday’s post below if you haven’t read it.

Sticking with the theme of makeup, I picked up one of the Too Faced Twinkle Twinkle Liquid Glitter Eyeshadows. This one is in the shade Candied Rose. These are high shine, multi-dimensional liquid glitter eyeshadows that give you great color payoff, but they dry down really quickly and are really long lasting. These are on sale right now on the Too Faced website for $5.50, so get them now if you want one. I know I’m going to be getting a few more.

Moving to skincare, I picked up a few things from Sephora and the Sephora Collection. I really like the SC face masks, so I picked up a trio. 

IMG_6723

The first one I got is the Watermelon After Sun Mask. This comes with a face mask and a decollete mask and is for quenching and tan perfecting. This one isn’t exactly a winter mask, but I do like to keep the after sun masks in face mask drawer just to have them. 

IMG_6724

The next mask is a Lychee face mask that is Ultra Moisturizing and Brightening. I haven’t tried the lychee SC face mask before, but I do love a brightening and moisturizing mask, especially in the winter so I’m excited to try this one. 

IMG_6725

And the last one I got is a Charcoal Nose Strip. I don’t actually do nose strips that often, but I do like the charcoal ones. They’re really purifying and I think they work the best. 

IMG_6726

And the last thing I bought is a blanket, but not just any blanket, a super plush and oversized blanket. I got this at Kohl’s and they had a huge selection in terms of pattern and I picked this geometric blue one. 

IMG_6730

They weren’t wrong when they said super plush and oversized. This is probably the softest blanket I own and it’s the perfect thickness for a blanket this cozy. 

IMG_6732

In terms of size, it’s 5ft by 6ft and you can comfortably use the short side of it. 10/10 recommend if you’re looking for a blanket for yourself or as a gift for someone. 

IMG_6731

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys picked up anything during Black Friday, I’d love to know what you got. 

Until next time, have fun shopping and I hope you’re enjoying Blogmas so far :).
