Sooooooo I need glasses. This is a weird thing for me because I’ve spent my life with perfect vision and I’m struggling to understand the exact point in time that you need glasses full time. My eyes are still not bad, I just can’t see far away (like, really far away) and it’s a little hard to make out faces and words at that point. I understand I need them when I drive but it’s not completely crucial at other times in life (aka in my apartment or walking somwhere). This long story brings me to Lookmatic. A friend of mine works with them and I was instantly interested in the company. I wanted to document the whole experience because it was so fun for me and such a great idea (and no this is not sponsored, I really stand by this company). You start off by signing up and picking which glasses you’d like to try on. They send you up to 6 pairs, no charge, so you can experience each pair IRL. You send back the frames within 15 days and can purchase whichever ones you like. All the packaging was really nice and in great shape, the glasses we’re of great quality and they had so many fun options. I think I’ve settled on the clear pair and the cat-eye secretary type pair. I can’t wait to get them and be able to recognize people if they’re running up to me or waving from afar!
I’m pretty simple when it comes to beauty and make up. I have my face regimen consisting of an all organic line called Eminence (my skin is sensitive and I’m also a health freak so this line is MADE for me) and I keep my makeup down to a minimum which includes liquid eyeliner, mascara, under eye concealer and blush. I have been blessed with fairly good skin and I think covering it up with powder or foundation is a sin (I think a lot of women make this mistake). With all this aside, I do like keeping up with makeup trends and I dable but this particular trend I am digging. For one, it’s an even more natural look than what I usually do which means less makeup to put on and easier to take off. This trend consists of big full lashes, a red lip, and rosey cheeks. I keep my face even more “fresh” looking by adding some under eye concealer and if you want you can add some shine on your cheek bones to enhance the look. It’s so easy, looks great and my personal favorite for when I’m “on the go” or when I’m too lazy to even put on makeup.
I decided to start a new type of post on TPT called “I’m Into It”. I always like sharing things I’m partial to, so why not make a staple post on the blog? This weeks goods? Fashion. Not only are these my new favorite pieces at the moment but this is my favorite color pallet right now as well: black and white. I’m really inspired by it, I love the endless options of it and it’s always chic with some edge to it.
This past weekend I headed to Big Bear with my best friends from high school, and a few of their friends, to stay at my friends parent’s cabin. Despite it being a sad situation with no snow in site thanks to the massive drought we’re having this year, the beauty was still breathtaking. We drank and played Cards Against Humanity, went into town and took a walk on the boardwalk, and closed the weekend with a karaoke/bowling session at a bar/bowling ally. It was such a fun weekend of rekindling and building new friendships and I can’t help but start the week on a good note after a trip like that.
