Retro Menswear

 My uniform as of late: retro menswear.  This 90’s Mondo dress shirt, found at the thrift store, is easy to style with jeans and boots.  I love that I can skip the accessories especially when I’m in a hurry because all the detail and sparkle is provided in the shirt.  Worn here with H&M and Zara jeans along with one of my best thrift store finds ever, these Y-3 Adidas boots

Product Review: NYX Butter Gloss

NYX Butter Gloss As the name suggests, these buttery lip glosses are very moisturizing and comfortable to wear on the lips. I have the shades (L to R) Eclair, Maple Blonde, and Peach Cobbler.  I love them all and hope to grab a couple of others. Available at Ulta and Target for only $4.99 each. Gold flatware.  Takes some effort to care for but oh so beautiful.

Product Review: Sunday Riley’s Ceramic Slip Cleanser

I’ve been using this for three months now and it’s easily a favorite.  I love the texture, smell, and most importantly the squeaky clean feeling after I rinse it off.  It cleanses, detoxifies, and minimizes pores.  I included this in my June Favorites and noted my favorite part is the fact that it contains black pepper.  It’s a great find albeit expensive for a cleanser, $45.  Available at Cult Beauty
