I’m a second year university student with a passion for writing, music, makeup and fashion. I use all these things to express every little emotion I’m feeling. Of course, I’ll give some tips and tricks about clothes, shoes, and makeup along the way with some suggestions on what I’m loving right now.
All-time favorite makeup bag essentials:
In the makeup bag you’ve always gotta have the basics, mascara (Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara in Black), eyeliner (MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack), concealer (Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer in Light), foundation (Daniel Thompson Mineral Sheer Tint in Light), lipstick (MAC Lipstick in Angel), lipgloss (Korres Lip Butter in Quince) and Chapstick. I tend to also carry tweezers and an eyelash curler with me for touch-ups.
Favorite fashion finds:
I love finding new things in the men’s section. The ever-popular Lumberjack shirt is super available to us ladies now, but has always been a favorite of the men, also so much cheaper! Black opaque tights are also a must-have, they are perfect during cold months and make dresses super-wearable into the winter season. Big chunky scarves, and light bright pashminas are always nice and add an extra touch to a plane-jane outfit. Blazers are back in style and add a formal touch to any outfit, as do beautiful black pencil skirts.
The first time I saw “The Shawshank Redemption”, it had been so built up that I couldn’t imagine it living up to the amazing reputation EVERYONE gave it. But it did, and to this day Shawshank is a movie that continues to touch the soul. “Requiem for a Dream” and “Fight Club” are also favorites, as is the perfect love story “The Notebook”.
“The Great Gatsby”, the most beautiful story I’ve ever read. “American Psycho”, not for the faint of heart. “Scar Tissue”, the autobiography of Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis.
My absolute favorite song in the entire world: Come Clarity by In Flames. I tend to listen to really heavy, dark music but will recommend different, new favorites to the blog regularly.
