Best of Beauty 2019

Each year, I love discovering new skin and beauty products. There are some products this year that I discovered that I can NOT live without! I'll break it down between skin & beauty.



Pixi Glow Tonic Serum - This has a slit tingle which I love because that means its working! Glycolic acid is a key ingredient in here that's really good for your skin.

Murad Age Spot Serum - This has rapidly changed the appearance of acne scars/dark spots on my face. I love this serum so much! I can't go without it.


Pixi Glow Tonic - Another thing I love. This toner gives your face an amazing glow after you use it!


Summer Fridays Jet Lag - For those of us who need hydration, this mask is it! I love the packaging & branding as well. It is great if you travel a lot or work in an office where the air is always so dry. I put it on at night for that extra plump in my skin the next morning.

Laniege Lip Mask - This mask is the only reason I don't have chapped lips in the winter. Smells amazing, lasts a long time & keeps your lips super hydrated.


Bioelements cleanser - Super soft and gentle on the skin! I feel fresh and clean and not dry or stripped after washing.

Eminence Probiotic cleanser - A good one for acne fighting/pore unclogging. It felt refreshing and has some tea tree in there which I love.

Spot Treatment:

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion - Dries up pimples overnight & shrinks them! I love using this or diluting some tea tree oil for a pimple.



Maybelline Fit me powders: I love these for baking or setting under eyes or whole face! I use shade fair light for undereye and fair for whole face. It is a great powder that is not as expensive as the laura mercier one I used to use. 

Born this way concealer: A great alternative to shape tape. Way more hydrating and more multi use! I use this for under eye or for spot treatment, concealing, contouring, etc. I use shade Nude. 

 Lancome Tent Idole Foundation: is always my go to foundation! Amazing coverage and truly lasts all day even with my oily skin. It also does not feel heavy at all. 

Bronzer: Finally tried the hoola bronzer and I now understand the hype. The perfect shade, perfect for day/night.

Highlighter: This sleek highlighter is bomb! The glow is unreal. I use this for special occasions. A little goes a long way. 

Blush: My classic always favorite. This milani baked blush. I probably wear it 360/365 days of the year.


Lips: Favorite lip products this year would be Morphe liquid lip in virgin, so comfortable and a perfect color for everyday wear! Another would be Kylie lip kit in shade bare. And for a pop of color, I love the Maelle Beauty matte in shade celeste.


Eyeshadow: I don't buy many palettes but two I loved are this pixi one and this morphe one! I also love the pixi glitters for a more glam look. 

Mascara: Kush mascara, creates a lot of volume! I feel like it picks up the tiny lashses too.  I also love this mascara, it is under $5 and it creates great volume. 

Eyeliner: Stila will always be my favorite!


Ouai Leave in conditioner - Love putting this in after the shower! Helps me a lot with detangling and smells amazing. 
Brioego mask - This mask is perfect! Use it every week to keep my hair strong. Clean beauty brand and smells amazing. It was also an allure beauty winner last year. 
Straight Blow Dry Cream - I use this before I style my hair! It works for straightening, blow drying & curling. It does not feel heavy and does not weigh down hair.

Random beauty favorites: 

Dr. Bronner's Bar Soap - I rub my brushes on this to give them a deep clean! They smell amazing after too. 
brush cleaning quick dry  - This is great for when I need to clean some product off my brushes and I don't have time for a deep clean.  


Hope you all found this helpful! Sorry for the delay but really had to evaluate what my favorite products were!

Favorite Coats and Jackets

Hi loves!
I can not be the only one who is obsessed with jackets. As the weather gets cooler, I tend to grab more cute coats. I love a variety of styles and I have found soo many I adore this season.

1. Gray top coat - The length & wool blend are a dream! It is also such a super chic piece. I got a size 8 and it will be great for under sweaters in the fall. The quality is also amazing & love that it's an amazon find. Price is $79.

2. Wrap coat - This one looks way more expensive than it is! It's such a chic coat, I adore the wrap style. I got a size medium for reference and it is very generous! Price is $105.

3. North Face Parka - Yes this coat is expensive BUT I would rather buy a good coat that will last me then freeze in Chicago winters. I had my previous North face for 5 years and I have just purchased a new one. They last a long time! Worth the money and very warm. Price is $298.

4. Camel Coat - This is my second season wearing this coat and I love it! It just adds the perfect chic touch to any outfit. It is also fairly warm for the cold weather in the Midwest. Price is down to $73!

5. Plaid Blazers - ALL the rage right now. If you don't have one, grab one. You can throw them over just about anything, so versatile for your closet. Price is $40.00

6.  Corduroy Jacket - This one is more for style purposes. I love the retro vibe this one gives. I also love the raw hem, this one came with me on my cali trip! Price is 34.

7. Puffer Jacket - You all have me seen me wear this one like crazy! I love grabbing this one, so easy to throw on & so warm. I personally love the pop of color, but there are so many other shades too. Price is $54.


What is your favorite jacket? Let me know down below! A girl can never have too many.
