I Heart Spring TAG 2022 // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
Spring is practically here! Although, this isn’t my favorite time of year I do love it when the seasons change. I thought that it would be fun to do a spring tag. This one is for the early days of YouTube and blogging it’s the “I Heart Spring” tag.

💋 Favorite spring nail polish?

I don’t have one nail polish that is my go-to in the spring time. I used to reach for pastel colors, but this spring I have been all about the bright neon shades. I would have to say my current favorite spring nail colors are orange and hot pink.

💋 What is your must-have lip color this spring?

I don’t branch out with my lip colors, yet I tend to play around with bold purple lipsticks in the spring. Honestly, I have no idea if this shade looks good on me, but I will still rock it.

💋 Show us your favorite spring dress!

I don’t think that I have one favorite spring dress, but more of a style of dress. I think that skater dresses are perfect for spring. I own a few that can be dressed up or down for all occasions. Also, they look great paired with a cardigan for those cooler spring days.

💋 What’s your favorite flower?

I am not a big flower person, so I don’t know many by name. I do like Lilies and Daisies.

💋 Favorite spring scarf/accessory?

I think that flower crowns are super cute to wear in the spring time. I would categorize them as hair accessories, which in my opinion counts. Yes, some might think they’re childish, or not for everyday use, but I think they make an outfit more stylish.

💋 What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, fashion or both!)

I read that colored lashes where the new trend for spring, and I am here for it. I don’t do many colorful eye looks, so colored mascara would be a cool way to add a pop to my makeup.

💋 Favorite spring candle?

As you probably guessed, my favorite candles are from Bath and Body Works. It was hard for me to pick a favorite, but I would have to say Peach Bellini. I am terrible at describing scents, so I am not even going to try. However, if you like fruity, sweet smells this one is perfect for you.

💋 Favorite body spray/perfume for spring?

The perfume that is my favorite in spring is the original Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I don’t buy a lot of higher end perfumes, yet I will never regret getting this one. The scent is very subtle and gives me spring vibes.

💋 What is spring like where you live?

I am going to guess that this question is about the weather. Where I live spring season is my least favorite time of year. We don’t have overly hot springs, or colder ones. The days usually stay within the 70s. However, May and June are tornado season for my state. I am super scared of tornadoes, which is why I dread spring time.

💋 What’s your favorite thing about spring?

I love the vibrancy of spring! This might be a weird answer, and hard for me to explain. I love that everything blooms and comes a live again in spring.

💋 Are you a spring cleaner?

Yes and no. In the past, I was not into spring cleaning at all. This year I am on a mission to spring clean and organize. I don’t know if I am going to stick to this plan, but I am going to try.

💋 Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?

I don’t have any vacations planned for the spring, or this year in general. Although, I would like to travel more in the future. As of now, I will be spending the rest of spring at home with my hubby and pets.

These questions where a blast to answer! I tag all of you, so let me know in the comments if you do the tag. Don’t forget to like and share this post. Also, follow my blog to get notified whenever a new post goes up.

Start A Project-Pan // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
Should you start a project-pan? I always ask myself this question, since my makeup collection is pretty large. Most of my eye-shadow palettes have never been used before. If you are unaware of what a project pan actually is then let me fill you in. It is where you pick a selected number of beauty products, which can include makeup, hair and skincare items that you would like to use up by the years end.

Downsize Your Makeup Collection

Obviously the number one reason to start a project pan is to minimize your makeup collection. If you are anything like me you might have a ton of foundations or highlighters, or a ton of eyeshadow palettes. A project pan will slowly but surely help you downsize your makeup collection significantly.

Get Your Moneys Worth

Sometimes we forget that beauty products cost a lot, and have expiration dates. So, starting a project-pan will ensure that you get to some of the products that will be expiring soon. Or, even just the products that you haven’t even used.

Rediscover Your Makeup Collection

Remember that holy grail concealer, favorite dry shampoo. Participating in a project pan can help you get to know your products all over again. It might even give you the chance to fall back in love with some old favorite products.

Saves You Money

The whole point of a project pan is to downsize. By focusing on your own products you are less likely to buy any new beauty items. This will help you continue to add more products to an already overwhelming amount. And, it will make your bank account happy too.

Would You Recommend

Doing a project pan can give you a good sense of the type of beauty products you like. Also, you might find products that you would definitely repurchase in the future, and, or recommend to others.

These are some reasons to commit to a project pan, but if you are a minimalist when it comes to beauty products than just keep doing what you are doing. Before you go give my blog a follow, and leave a comment letting me know if you are doing a project-pan this year.

Maybelline ‘Sky High’ Mascara Review // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
I wanted to try the ‘Sky High’ mascara from Maybelline, since everyone was raving about it a few months back. This product got popular do to TikTok, or at least I believe that is where all the hype began. I haven’t tried many Maybelline mascaras, but not for any particular reasons. I just find that Maybelline isn’t a brand that I necessarily buy from. But, let’s get on to the review! The mascara retails for around $9 (at Walmart), which is pretty comparable to other drugstore mascaras.

The mascara wand is very thin and long, and I was pleased with how much I enjoyed a smaller brush. I liked how much volume and length the mascara provided. It didn’t make my lashes spidery looking at all. I would say that this is more of a natural looking mascara. It doesn’t change your lashes drastically, and I think most people might find the product to be underwhelming. However, if you have naturally long and black lashes like me than it is a great everyday mascara.

Also, I enjoy the brush so much that I have been using it in other mascaras, which probably is silly. I personally think the hype is well deserved, and I would be interested to try more TikTok recommend products. Let me know your opinion on this product, and if you agree with the hype surrounding it. Please follow my blog for mainly bookish content and occasionally beauty posts like this one.

Superhero Pop-Art Halloween Tutorial // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
I have been wanting to get into Halloween makeup for a while, so I decided to take the plunge. I created a pop-art style Wonder Woman look. The look was fairly easy to create, but does take a little bit of drawing skills to achieve. The hardest part for me was doing the star and making the lines not too thick. Over all, I think that it turned out pretty good. The only thing I would change would be using more of a bright or glittery read to fill in the star.

Products Used

September 2021 Favorites // Toss-Up Tuesday

Hi Friends,
I thought it would be fun to start doing favorite posts at the end of each month. I can’t guarantee that I will do one every month, but I promise there will be more of come. My favorites include beauty, fashion and lifestyle items. I didn’t talk about any books, since most of my posts are book related.


Beauty

Makeup Revolution
This is a new favorite beauty brand of mine. Their prices are on the same level as drugstore makeup, and the product quality is awesome. They have released some great collections recently, so I can’t wait to see what they’ll bring out next.

Purlisse Pumpkin + Ginger Detoxifying Charcoal Mask
To be honest, I have only used this product once, yet I instantly noticed a difference in my skin. I could be fooling myself, but after that initial use my pores seemed smaller and skin looked all together clearer.


Fashion

Bob’s
Back in the day, I was 100% a heels girl. Now I cannot live without some comfy flats. Bobs have been my go-to shoes for a while, and match almost any outfit.


Lifestyle

Walking
Normally I’m a yoga girl, but these days I’ve been enjoying a nice walk on the treadmill. I love that I can listen to music, or watch a YouTube video while getting my workout in.

Crisp Apple Pop-tart
Pop-tarts are my weakness! This flavor is mild but tastes like a warm apple pie. I find them to be perfect for the fall. Let me know in the comments if you prefer fruity or dessert pop-tarts.

Hot Coffee
This summer I switched to drinking only iced coffee. However, lately I have been reaching for a cup of hot coffee. There’s something about a warm cup of coffee on a chilly day that is screams autumn.

There you have my September favorites! What are your current favorites? If you want to support my blog, like and share this post. Also, follow the blog to get notified about new posts.
