Sephora Spring Sale 2021

It’s that time of year again! Typically Sephora runs a sale twice yearly that gives Beauty Insiders a percentage off based on their membership level.

Of course, during the sale, I always recommend that you stock up on things that you use all of the time. Also if you are interested in any expensive beauty tools (like this one that I happen to LOVE), this is the time to pick it up! However, I also think that it is a great time to try something new or something on your wishlist while you can pick it up on a discount. These items are the ones that have piqued my interest for the sale!

  1. Ellis Brooklyn Bee: First, I love the bottle! Second, I really like fragrances with honey in them. The key notes in this fragrance are dark rum, honey, and vanilla bean (yum!) which sounds right up my alley!
  2. Fenty Beauty Body Sauce: This is a luminizing body tint that comes in 7 shades. The shade that I’m most interested in is Salty Caramel. I’ve heard that this body tint dries to a luminous finish, but stays put! It is supposedly transfer proof and I am totally here for that. My legs are always a lot lighter than the top half of my body, so I would use something like this to even out my skin tone.
  3. Laneige Lip Treatment Balm: You may know that the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is my favorite lip balm to use when I’m at home. When I saw that they recently released this product, which seems to be a more luxurious version of it, I immediately put it on my Loves List (wishlist at Sephora).
  4. NARS Sunkissed Cream Bronzer: This reminds me so much of the beloved Chanel cream bronzer that ladies of lighter complexions have raved about for years! NARS just released this cream bronzer in 2 shades, Laguna & Casino. I plan on picking up Casino (the darker shade) and I really hope it works well for me!
  5. Fresh Soy Face Cleanser: This facial wash is a cult classic and it is now available in this jumbo size bottle. Although it is expensive, this size is a much better value than the normal size squeeze tube. Plus the pump makes it easier to use.
  6. Bread Beauty Supply Everyday Gloss Hair Oil: Bread Beauty Supply is a relatively new to Sephora, Black Owned Brand. This hair gloss seems perfect to restore shine without adding a lot of weight and chemicals to the hair. I feel like I’m always looking for the shine in my hair, so I’m thinking that this product will be a good one for me to try!
  7. Gucci Soleil Bronzing Powder: This bronzer looks expensive and is expensive, but I’ve actually heard great things about it. It caught my eye a couple of months ago, but I’ve never purchased it because the price is so steep. I’m still deciding if I will order this, but I’m leaning towards doing it!
  8. Tom Ford Soleil Brulant: This is the number one item on my wishlist. Since I heard that Tom Ford was releasing this new fragrance, I was very interested. The key notes are orange flower absolute, amber, and black honey accord. Also, can we please have a moment of silence for this beautiful bottle!
  9. Lancome Lash Idole Mascara: I typically like Lancome mascaras and this new one caught my eye a few weeks ago. It seems to provide tons of volume and length. You have to go check out the pictures on Sephora website to see the before and afters.
  10. Kayali Deja Vu Fragrance Set: I’ve wanted to try this perfume for so long, but I’ve always held out on purchasing it. I think that this will be the time that I finally buy it and I will probably get this set because it’s a better deal. The set includes the fragrance and a hair mist.

5 Items That Caught My Eye This Week 3/7/21

Happy Sunday (or whenever you are reading this)! Today I am back with 5 more items that caught my eye over the past week! Check it out!

  1. I love a good red bag and this one is beautiful! It looks to be the perfect red and I love that the chain is also red. Not to mention, the price is really reasonable!
  2. These shot glasses are super classy! I don’t usually take shots, and if I do, it definitely wouldn’t be at home, therefore I can’t justify the purchase. However, if I did take shots at home (LOL), I wouldn’t hesitate to pick these up!
  3. These jars/vases look brown tinted in the photo, but they are actually clear. I saw someone on Instagram that had these filled with candy and I loved the look of it! Maybe one day when I get a little more self control, I will incorporate these into my home!
  4. This bronzer & highlighting palette seems perfect for the summer! I’m not sure if I will be traveling any time soon, but if I do, I will purchase this to take with me! It may be a little dark for me year round, but I definitely think I could make it work when I’m more “bronzed”.
  5. Another week, another pair of sunglasses! I stumbled across these and they are currently in my cart as I try to talk myself out of them! I think they are super cute and they come in lots of different colors. Not to mention, they are on a super sale right now!


5 Items That Caught My Eye This Week 2/7/2021

  1. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and these heart pajamas (for kids) are absolutely adorable! I’m pretty sure that I’ll be picking these up for my little one!
  2. Also Valentine’s Day approved, is this shirt dress with hearts all over it. I initially thought it was a night gown when I came across it, but apparently its not. I personally would still wear this cute little number for bed.
  3. All Black Everything! Need I say more?
  4. I love these glossy black and gold sandals! I will be keeping my eye on these because I think they will work perfectly into my wardrobe for the spring & summer.
  5. These sunglasses are everything! They are so unique and currently on sale! I keep talking myself out of them, but I really, REALLY, want them. LOL.


Fragrance Friday #26 | Dior Feve Délicieuse EDP

Today I’m back with another Fragrance Friday! The fragrance that I’m sharing today is one that I’ve loved for awhile now (spoiler alert), but didn’t realize that I never gave it a full review. If you want to know the deets on Dior Feve Délicieuse, keep reading.

New Affordable Pajama Picks!

Ya’ll know that I love good pair of pajamas that don’t break the bank! My current favorite place to pick up affordable pajamas from is Target. They recently released quite a few new styles and/or patterns so I rounded up my faves right now! They also have an extra 5% off all of these styles right now!

  1. Satin pajamas are so stylish, but sometimes they can get a little hot. This pair is elegant, but won’t have you burning up! Of course, black trimmed with white is always a good idea!
  2. Also love this burgundy color!
  3. This tie-dye set is really well priced and looks very comfy. This set could actually double as loungewear!
  4. I’m glad Target bought this leafy pattern back! The material on this set is so soft and comfy.
  5. Same material as the previous one, but a more tailored look!
  6. Again, a super soft and comfy material! This one combines a fun pink tie dye pattern with the sophistication of a button down set!
  7. Another satin short set, but in this beautiful floral pattern!
  8. I have this nightgown in a different color, but this pink and white stripe is so pretty! The material on this is super soft and stretchy.


Which one is your fave?

Fragrance Friday #25 | Berdoues Hoja De Cuba EDP

Berdoues is a niche fragrance house that I recently discovered. I decided to try out a fragrance from their Grand Crus collection, Hoja De Cuba. Hoja De Cuba translates to Cuba Leaf. Keep reading to see what I think!

5 Items That Caught My Eye This Week 1/3/2021

Happy New Year! I hope 2021 has gotten off to a good start for you all! For me, each new year gives me a feeling of a clean slate and this year is no different. I KNOW that 2021 will be a better year than 2020!

Anyway, on to the items that caught my eye over the last week!

  1. From time to time, I love a good statement necklace, and these faux pearl initial necklaces fit the bill. They are big enough to draw the eye, but they don’t look over the top or cheap (imo)!
  2. For this one, I kind of cheated. LOL. I wanted to pair these two items because they are basically the same idea, except one is a pair of shorts and one is a pair of joggers. Both items are faux leather and the color on both are amazing. Faux leather pants/shorts seem to be really big this season, but I think that both of these could be worn for years. Plus, they are really affordable!
  3. These sneakers are so cute and are under $25! I really like the white pair with the pop of yellow, but I also think the leopard pair is really cute!
  4. I’m all for a new lippie and this new release from NARS seems perfect. It is a soft, matte, lipstick that appears to look velvety on the lips. Not to mention, the color is perfection!
  5. I really love this puff sleeve sweatshirt. The color and style really dress up this comfy sweatshirt. Right now, it is on sale for less than $20!

5 Items That Caught My Eye This Week 12/27/2020

It’s been a minute! If you don’t follow my YouTube channel, you may have been wondering what happened to me….In short, Vlogmas happened to me! Basically, Vlogmas is posting every day in December up through Christmas Day. I participated this year, so make sure to check out all my Vlogmas videos when you get a chance.

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! I had a very nice day with my husband and kids. We were unfortunately unable to spend the day with our extended family, but overall, it was a good day! Of course, with Christmas shopping, SO MANY THINGS caught my eye. LOL. Today, I’m sharing 5 of the items that caught my eye this past week. Maybe you can put those gift cards to use if you see something that you like!

  1. For some reason, I’ve been eyeing espresso machines lately. I don’t think I’m ready to make that jump yet, but if I was, I think it would be for this gorgeous machine that does everything! As a bonus, it would go well with my other kitchen appliances!
  2. I have been on the hunt for a medium to lightweight long robe, which seems like it would be easy to find, but it has not been. However this robe seems perfect and I absolutely love all the colors that it comes in. My only hesitation is that I have never purchased anything from this brand before. Have you? Any thoughts?
  3. This decorative mirrored sign is beautiful and I think would make a great addition to any home. I would personalize it with my family’s last name. I’m thinking of getting it to be a centerpiece to a gallery wall of family photos.
  4. Pink velvet joggers! PINK VELVET JOGGERS! I don’t think I need to say anymore. LOL. I love these even though they are unlike anything else that I own. I barely wear colored pants, but these pink velvet ones have my name all over them!
  5. Lastly, this jumpsuit is the perfect cross between elegant and casual. It can be dressed up of course, but just as easily dressed down with sneakers. The material is more of a sweatshirt material that looks super comfy.

5 Items That Caught My Eye This Week

My items this week are really good especially for gift giving (to yourself or others)! Check out my picks!

  1. I love my PMD Face Cleanser, and when I saw that they had a body cleanser, I was intrigued! It’s definitely not something I need, but I think it would be great for body cleansing and exfoliation.
  2. Sweater dresses are essential for the colder months and this one is really nice. Believe it or not, I don’t own any sweater dresses. This one looks great and is affordable.
  3. I feel like something in animal print catches my eye every week! This week is no exception. These soft joggers are perfect for lounging around the house and still being cute. They also have the matching top that can be purchased separately.
  4. I know that I don’t need a new eyeshadow palette, but a girl can look! This new palette from Huda Beauty is so pretty, especially in the swatches. It has the colors for an everyday look, but you can also jazz it up a little.
  5. Lastly is a bag that I already own, but in a different color. Since last year I have been wanting an olive bag with gold hardware, but I never came across the right one. This bag is perfect for me. I already own it in the same size so I know that it fits my lifestyle and is well made. Dear Santa……please?
