YAY for Cyber Monday! Who doesn't love getting amazing deals from the comfort of your own home?! I get most of my holiday shopping (and splurging) done on Cyber Monday, and I didn't do any Black Friday shopping this year so today is a big day 🙂 Because of that, I wanted to share some stores, items and deals that I am looking forward to most!

To start off, ALL of my beauty faves are 20% off at Sigma! I suggest picking up a brush set, a spa gadget to clean your brushes, and this perfect lipstick! An everyday palette like this is another must-have of mine!

Accessories like this necklace will make you the belle of the ball at any holiday party, and not to mention this amazing metallic dress! Pair it with some sassy heels and you're set! On the topic of accessories, these studs are under $3! Talk about a steal!

I always get Kyle sweaters like this for Christmas. They go with everything! And for mom? These slippers are absolutely perfect! For something even fancier, this Tory Burch cross-body is a gooorgeous gift (even for yourself!) 😉 Us girls need to treat ourselves every now and again!

Hi, loves! I am back with my October favorites!

1. Sigma Eye Shadow Base + Precision Brushes

Sigma's Persuade eye shadow base is the only shadow base I've ever used in my entire life. It is absolutely perfect for everyday looks! My 2 favorite brushes to apply it with are the Sigma P82 and 3DHD Precision! Match made in heaven. [Get 10% off your Sigma purchase with code SIGMAPINK]

2. Laura Mercier Setting Powder

Whether it be for "baking" or just a quick sweep to set my foundation, this powder is my ride or die!

3. Liquid Lipsticks

I've been loving an ultra-matte lip for fall lately, and these two by Anastasia and ColourPop have been on my lips a lot over the last month! (Now it's time to get some darker shades!)

4. Glam Glow Masks

I have totally bought into the Glam Glow hype. The Super-Mud mask is literally a miracle worker. It draws the oil out of your face and leaves your skin feeling like a baby's bottom!

5. UD Setting Spray

My makeup isn't complete without a spritz (well, shower) of this. I can see such a difference in the longevity of my makeup when I use this vs. when I don't... another holy grail that I can't live without!

Jeans: Gap, DSTLD | Purse: Kate Spade [Similar] [Similar] | Shoes: Nordstrom [Similar], Target

People argue that black isn't a color. Well, to me it is, and it's my favorite one of them all.

If I had it my way, I would wear all black, all day, every day. But I simply do not have enough black to fulfill that wish. That doesn't mean I am not 100% obsessed with all black everything... because I am.  Black looks good on everyone, it flatters every body shape, and is always safe and trendy yet classy. Just everything, okay? 😉 On that note, I wanted to share a few of my favorite black pieces that I've been wearing non stop!

1. Distressed, high-waisted skinny jeans

For being on the curvier side, black is the most flattering bottom on me. I have absoltely been loving black skinny jeans, especially high-waisted ones because they're just so dang comfy [and trendy] so it's a win-win in my book! My #1 all-time favorite pair is from Gap. [You heard me, GAP!] I bought a pair of high-waisted jeans there a few months back, and absolutely fell in love with the fit. I have a small waist, wide hips and curvy thighs, so my struggle has always been finding high-waisted jeans that fit my butt/thights, but are still tight at the waist and ankles and let me tell you: GAP IS THE ANSWER! I now own every. single. color. of this style and I'm offically obsessed.

Another pair that I just got are from DSTLD! They're high waisted, SUPER comfy and stretchy, and the distressed design is super different and unique - more of a "slit" pattern instead holes like the Gap ones. So far, I've been loving them and they are quickly moving up to the top of my list of faves!!

2. Platforms

I'm a 90s child so anything that has a platform or reminds me of Spice Girls is an automatic win. I love that platforms have cycled back to being super trendy... really for no other reason than the fact that they're so fun! My absolute favorite that I've been wearing non-stop are these platform booties! They're super affordable, comfortable and trendy - what more could a girl ask for?!

I've also been loving these black leather platform sneakers! How cute, right? I picked these up late spring and have been the perfect throw on for any occasion shoe ever since! They're also perfect for bascially all of the seasons, so I know I will be wearing them well into fall!

3. Leather purse

I got this purse probably 2 years ago now, and I use it ALL the time! It's so cute, durable, and just the right size to fit your essentials for a night on the town. I love the textured black leather and the chain detail that keeps it casual and trendy. If people used the term "holy grail" for accessories, this would be one of mine 😉

So there's my current black list for ya! Like I said, you can never go wrong with black clothes, shoes or accessories because it's just a perfect, flattering, trendy yet classic non-color color [hehe]. Shop all my faves below and have an awesome day love bugs!

It's officially FALL! I am so excited. Fall is my favorite time of the year for so many reasons: Boots, scarves, lots of comfy plaid shirts and leggings and coziness and everything that I love. Something else that I love during the fall is wearing neutral/nude lips! Since we are transitioning from summer, neutral lip shades are absolutely perfect because they go with anything; any outfit, any makeup look, and they're appropriate for any occasion!

I picked out some new + old neutral lip faves from my collection to share with you today! I switch off between wearing more of traditional nude to something that's more of a "my lips but better" shade, so I made sure to include some of each!

MAC shades L-R: Blankety, Honey Love, Faux, Creme Cup

And the rest! L-R: Wet n Wild Bare It All, Sigma Dance 'Til Dawn, NYX Tea Rose, Sigma Indulgent Lip Base, Sigma Slip Lip Vex

You can really never go wrong with a neutral lip color, and I would recommend any + all of these! These colors are definitely my day-to-day go-to, but I am definitely ready and excited to start wearing the deep fall shades, too! [Stay tuned for a fall lip post coming soon!]

Have you tried any of these lip colors? What are some of your neutral lip favorites?! I'd love to hear! 🙂 Enjoy the first day of fall!!
