Even More Picks from Glossier

I have a problem, but is it a really a problem if it's love?
Deep beauty blogging thoughts with Mollie.

Anyway, I've made another purchase with Glossier and I love even more stuff from this brand. Who's shocked?
No one. No one is shocked.

Let's go ahead and jump into all of my new stuff from Glossier that. spoiler alert, I love.

Cloud Paint in Dusk
This is the color that seriously everyone has been raving about, so I felt compelled to give it a shot and I'm so glad I did. It's absolutely stunning. I would describe it as a brown-y, rosy, nude, and it really just adds a nice natural flush of color while adding some warmth as well. Of course these blushes blend out like an absolute dream, and this one is no exception. It's perfection in a little paint tube.

Lip Gloss
I really grappled with the thought of if I even needed this lip gloss at all, I mean, it just looks like a plain clear gloss, but luckily it is so much more! This gloss had awesome reviews and I totally get why: it adds the most pillow-y-soft, plump look without being sticky. It is truly the glossiest gloss I have ever used and I don't even know exactly why, but I love it. I love wearing it alone. I love wearing it on top of a color. I love wearing it with no other makeup. You get the picture.

Balm Dot Com in Cherry
I have the coconut Balm Dot Com on my nightstand, and the birthday cake BDC in my bathroom, so I thought, "why not grab the cherry one?" I actually really like this pick because it is moisturizing and soothing on the lips, but it has a sheer pink tint, which I love using during the daytime, especially at work. I will say, the scent smells like cherry medicine, but if you love cherry medicine like me (yum), you'll enjoy it. Balm Dot Com for the win... again.

Boy Brow
The cult product that I was too afraid to try because "my brows aren't full enough" made my brows look full and natural and perfect. I thought Boy Brow would be like other brow gels, but it's really so much more. It is more like a pomade texture, so it does fill in sparse spots, but in the most natural way. I don't even know how it does it, but this has been my go-to when I want a really full brow look to layer on top of a pencil, or if I want to use it alone for the most natural but amazing looking brows ever. Thank you, Glossier, just thank you.

That wraps up this edition of "Take All of my Money, Glossier."
Until next time...

Playa Hair Care

I've found my new favorite hair care brand of all time. I'm so particular about what I put in my hair so this is a big deal, guys! I'm so happy to let you all know about Playa.

Playa is a hair care brand that prides itself on being high quality and also natural, using natural oils and botanicals to create products that perform without any chemicals. The brand also exudes this very cool California-Girl vibe that makes it all the more fun to use. I was fortunate enough to be contacted by Playa and sent these items, but believe me when I tell you that I'm being 100% honest when I say that these are my new favorite hair products, and not only do they work, they make doing my hair a real treat.
Let's jump into the products I've been using:

Ritual Hair Oil
Hair oil is probably my favorite product when it comes to styling my hair. It adds so much moisture and shine, and it's important to find one that isn't too heavy or greasy. The Ritual Hair Oil is a dream to use, as it is light and very hydrating. It has a rich, creamy scent that is very luxurious, but not overpowering. I love using this on the ends of my hair when it is damp to lock in hydration, or on day two or three hair, when my ends are a little crisp and could use some revitalizing. The packing of this also adds to the luxury feel, with its dispensing dropper, glass bottle, and golden liquid.

Pure Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is a necessity in my life. Between the summer heat, working out, and just being busy, I use dry shampoo regularly to keep my hair fresh or even just as a styling product for texture. The Pure Dry Shampoo is unlike any other dry shampoo I've tried, mostly because it is so light, but still very effective. It has absolutely no white residue, which is amazing since I have such dark hair, and it leaves my hair feeling so clean and smells really light and fresh. Despite being so light, it adds amazing texture, without weighing my tresses down. It is truly the freshest dry shampoo I've ever had my hands on!

If you're craving some new hair care, or love natural products, I urge you to give Playa shot. It will do wonders for your hair and your more natural, hippy side.

Have you tried anything from Playa? If not, which product looks the most exciting to you?

Slides on Slides

I have never been one to be a shoe aficionado. Sure, I have TONS of girlfriends who are crazy about shoes, but it has just never been my thing. I only go big on a pair if they are classic and I will wear them for a very long time (i.e. booties, tennis shoes, heels). So when I saw slides were making a comeback, I realized a black pair would fit very well into my wardrobe. I also realized that the return of these shoes is super trendy, and I didn't want to go overboard. I decided to check out Forever 21 and was completely blown away at how amazing their selection of slides currently is! They have a ton of different styles at inexpensive prices and great quality. I am absolutely thrilled with the pair I grabbed (linked below), but there are a ton of great options. Check out my current favorites!

Are there any cute slides you've been eyeing from Forever 21? If so, I'd love to hear your picks!

Up in the Air

For my boyfriend's birthday, I wanted to do something really unique and special since he was turning 30. He loves photography and taking photos, so I was able to book us a ride around downtown Kansas City at sunset for him to take pictures. We had a blast and Kansas City was absolutely beautiful! All of the pictures here are just the ones I took on my iPhone, so I'm sure you can imagine how epic the camera photos are! It was definitely an incredible experience that I would recommend to anyone! If you are in the KC area and interested in tours, please check out River's Edge.

Enough rambling and onto the beautiful photos!
