5 Items That Caught My Eye This Week 9/4/2021

I know, I know! I’ve been gone for months! While I’ve been away from the blog, I’ve been really trying to get consistent on my YouTube & Instagram and I think I’m doing pretty well with that! Now, I’m ready to start posting more here as well! Please let me know what type of posts you would be interested in seeing here.

For today, we are back with 5 items that caught my over the past week!

  1. I’ve always loved the look of these totes from YSL, but this new fuchsia wool version is on another level! I love how bright pop of color combined with black!
  2. This jumpsuit gives me all the luxurious resort vibes! I know Summer is almost over, but this one is made out of sweater material and I think it can be worn for another month or two (especially if you live in a warm climate).
  3. I’ve never really been into the designer sneaker thing, but this is a pair that I would definitely wear! Although they are monogram, the color makes them look understated and I love!
  4. Everybody loves the Barefoot Dreams blankets, but I came across this dupe and I really want to try it out! It is about half the price of the Barefoot Dreams version!
  5. This NARS blush palette is perfect for me, except for the fact that I already own 3 out of the 4 colors! Actually 3 of the colors are my favorite blush shades from the brand! I can’t justify the purchase on this one for me, but if I ever go on a trip again, this will be mine!

5 Items That Caught My Eye This Week 6/6/21

This week I have 5 more items to share with you that caught my eye as I was perusing the internet! Check them out!

  1. Can you tell that I’m all about the bright colors right now? This tiered maxi dress is a beautiful shade of orange. It does come in other colors, but this is the one that speaks to me. I know on the picture it may look a little blah, but I actually saw someone try this dress on on Youtube and I love it. It can be belted too depending on what is most flattering to your body. Best of all, it’s under $40!
  2. This cute pair of sandals looks casual, but elegant. I think these will be perfect for those days when I want a flat sandal that is not a flip-flop. Also, these are suuuuuper affordable!
  3. Huda Beauty recently came out with a new bronzer and skin tint. I want both, but the bronzer really speaks to me. I tend to do well with marbled bronzers because they typically offer a radiant finish that is not sparkly, but also not flat matte.
  4. I have a thing for makeup bags, and this one is so cute! Not to mention, it looks like the perfect size to take on weekend trips or for your everyday makeup. It also comes with a removable organizer and is very reasonably priced!
  5. Last, but certainly not least is this AMAZING orange bag that I have been lusting over! I have been researching this bag nonstop since I came across it and I think I “need” it. It is firmly on my luxury wishlist!

5 Items That Caught My Eye This Week 5/16/21

It’s Sunday and I’m back again to share the items that caught my attention over the last week! I may or may not have ordered one of these. Can you guess which one?

  1. These sandals are right on trend, but also look extremely plush and comfortable! They are also priced really reasonably! I think these may be making their way to my house soon!
  2. I’ve been loving green lately and this cute dress is the perfect shade. It’s also available in so many colors and is really affordable!
  3. This bag has taken up way to much space in my mind over the last week! Not only does the leather look very luxe, but this red color is perfection! It definitely looks more expensive than it is!
  4. Y’all know that I love a good pair of sunnies! I came across these and I really like the shape. It’s a classic aviator with a little bit of a twist. I also love this color, but they are available in other color combos!
  5. 2 years in and I STILL can’t get enough of this bag! YSL recently released some new colors and I’m obsessed! The colors that caught my eye most are this gorgeous cobalt blue and this saffron yellow! YSL, gift me please!!! LOL

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.


Will you be shopping the Sephora Spring Sale this year? What’s on your wish list?

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?
