What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag

A few months ago, I wrote a post telling you all the deets on what I took with me on vacation and you all really seemed to like it. A few weeks ago, I went on a trip to Las Vegas and had a little staycation. The makeup I took with me this time was much different so I wanted to share it with you. Check out the quick little video below and let me know if you have any questions about anything mentioned!

What are your go-to products when you are traveling?

Fragrance Friday #4 | Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme EDP

Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme EDP and Body Lotion

As I was uploading the pictures for this post, I realized that the last Fragrance Friday that I did was on another Tom Ford fragrance. I promise that was not on purpose, but Tom Ford is my favorite fragrance house and the fact that I keep coming back to them just speaks to that. Anyway, let’s talk about Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to write a quick post to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving! In this life it is very easy to overlook all of our blessings, so on this day I ask that you join me in just being grateful for all that we have. We really should be doing this on a daily basis, but sometimes we just need a little push! 🙂 Hopefully you all get to enjoy this day with your family, but even if you don’t, just know that you are being thought of and loved from afar.

If you’re bored today and tired of watching football, make sure to check out the video that I posted and subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already!

Fragrance Friday #3 | Tom Ford Lost Cherry (and a dupe???)

Tom Ford Lost Cherry is one of my newest fragrance purchases and is my most expensive fragrance purchase (by far)! This Fragrance Friday will be slightly different from the others because not only will I give you a brief review of the fragrance, but I will also discuss an alternative that is at a much lower price point.

My Name is Ayesha, and I’m A Lipstick Hoarder

The Before

So yeah, I have a lipstick hoarding problem… Actually, if I’m being completely honest, I have a makeup hoarding problem! I go through my makeup every 6 months or so, but for some reason, my lippies have been getting overlooked. I guess since I had so many of them, it seemed too overwhelming to go through. About a week or two ago, I decided to bite the bullet and get rid of a lot of my lip products. What you see in the above picture is about 3/4 of the lip products that I started with (lipsticks, liners, glosses, and chapsticks included). Keep scrolling down to see what I’m working with now!

Fragrance Friday #2 | Gucci Memoire D’une Odeur EDP

Gucci Memoire D'une Odeur

Gucci Memoire D’une Odeur is a relatively new fragrance to my collection. I picked up it shortly after its release after I happened to come upon it while walking my kid to the bathroom of a department store! LOL! I saw the beautiful bottle, gave it a whiff, and couldn’t get it out of my mind! About a week later, I purchased it with a gift card and I have no regrets!

Target For The Win! (Again!)

If you know me, you know that Target is one of my favorite places! So much so, that I have limited my visits there because I do so much unnecessary spending. Ugh! Nevertheless, I do have 5 current Target items to share that I have been loving!

Universal Thread High Rise Distressed Skinny Jeans To be transparent, I just got these jeans and have not washed them yet, so I’m not 100% sure how they hold up. That being said, I absolutely love the fit and feel of these. The knee slits add a little distressing that is totally appropriate for my lifestyle. They are stretchy, but hold their shape. They definitely feel more expensive than they are!

Universal Thread Monterey V-Neck T-Shirt The camp shirt is pictured, because it is my favorite, but I have this same shirt in quite a few colors now. I love that the v-neck doesn’t get misshapen and is not too low cut for me. I also like that the fit of this shirt is not super oversized, but not a tight fit either. Not to mention, I’ve had the camo version for at least 6 months and it is still in perfect shape (I wear it at least every other week)!

Auden Everyday Lightly Lined Demi T-Shirt Bra This bra is the reason that I am doing this post! I have this in the caramel color shown, but also in black and beige. This bra is one of the most comfortable bras that I own and it is by far the least expensive! I have had mine now for probably about 10 months and it still fits well. I will probably restock on these soon just to be safe!

Stars Above Simply Cool Pajama Pants in Blue Stripe Again, I have these pajama pants in more than one print (are we seeing a pattern here? haha). I love all of the prints that I have, but I thought that this blue stripe pair is probably the most universally liked. These pajama pants also have matching tops that can be purchased separately, but I tend to wear mine with a tank top. They are super cute, comfortable, and they fit me well. I don’t find that these stretch out over time. Another bonus is that they are so breathable, I wear them to bed year round.

Kristin Ess Hair Signature Gloss in Copper Penny Last, but not least, this hair toning gloss has been a staple for me. I’ve had highlights for quite a few months now and when I notice the color fading, I use this hair gloss. It looks like a hair color, but it is actually a moisturizing, color depositing treatment. The color is only temporary, but I find that it helps bring the warmth back to my hair! Plus, it makes my hair look more shiny!

Have you discovered any new loves at Target lately? What’s your go to Target Win?

Fragrance Friday #1 | Chanel Les Eaux Deauville EDT

Many of you may already know, but I have been a fragrance lover for as long as I can remember! I can recall all the way back to middle school, getting excited about perfumes! Back then, I would peruse the aisles of Ross and Marshalls looking to spend my little money that I saved on purses or perfume. Over 20 years later, I’m still loving both! Haha! Since my fragrance collection is so large, I decided to start this Fragrance Friday series on the blog. I probably won’t do these every Friday, just whenever the mood strikes! In this series, I plan to do short posts that briefly describe my thoughts on the fragrance. For this first Fragrance Friday, I’ll be telling you all about Chanel Paris Deauxville EDT.

What’s In My Vacay Makeup Bag

Louis Vuitton Nice BB

A few months ago (quite a few months ago at this point, lol), I was blessed to be able to go on vacation! Yay! My husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary with a trip to Cancun, Mexico with another couple (who we love and look up to)! If you have been following my Youtube channel, you may have seen some of the outfits that I wore while there, but here, I wanted to show you what makeup I took with me. Not to mention, the absolutely gorgeous toiletry case that accompanied me!

5 Things I’m Not Buying in 2019

So if you know me, you know that I LOVE to shop! Some of my favorite things to shop for are makeup, luxury bags & accessories, home decor, and the list goes on & on! One of my goals for 2019 is to be more financially responsible, so I decided to cut back on some things. Now, shopping is something that I really enjoy so I’m not cutting it out completely. I just decided to set a few rules for myself so that I don’t go crazy with my spending this year.
