Christmas Wishlist (All Inclusive)

Christmas Wishlist (All Inclusive)

Last week I did a post on what I wanted for Christmas this year as far as beauty products goes. I do want a lot of makeup (always), and I’ve been asked a few times what other stuff I want. And I honestly answered that I want boring things. I don’t like paying for boring stuff, so for Christmas it would be awesome to get like, a gas card. Or some other bill that I don’t appreciate paying for. That’s what I would like because it would help me for the rest of the year. But I’ve been told by certain family members that I’m cheap. And that I should want stuff that’s more fun. So I thought I’d make ANOTHER list of FUN stuff I want. So here goes:

Clothes:

Forever 21:

I love this. I’ve really been loving the sweatshirt and jeans look this season. Pullovers are easy to style. I’ve always loved graphic tops, so having both in one piece is ideal. The orange and the red is really warm toned for this season, but I think I’d use this for the awkward transition between winter to spring.

No matter how hard I try, I just can’t get over roses. I know the whole rose thing is kind of overkill because of the embroidery trend but I love them so much.

Forever 21:

This cross body bag is so adorable. It’s not exactly functional, but it’s really chic. It is like a suitcase, which would make me feel like the business woman I aspire to be. WANT. WANT. WANT.

UO:

Does this sweater not look right out of the 80’s? I need it. It looks itchy, but that’s a situation I’m willing to handle if it means that I can look like a character out of Stranger Things.

I love Tommy Hilfiger clothing. I don’t own any. Yet. But maybe that will change.

And beanies. I usually do not ever wear beanies. But that’s quickly changing. And this beanie needs to be on my head from now until summer.

The female body is a work of art. I need all three of these living in perfect harmony on the top shelf of my room with little succulent plants nesting nicely within.

Line art is a current fav of mine. What can I say?

I would like this as a phone case. I have a galaxy s5. The artist is named Cassandra and she has really cute drawings. This one is especially my favorite, so I’d like to have it on my phone, with me everywhere.

And yeah, that’s basically it. I don’t know if I’m easy to shop for but I always think I am. Click on any of these pictures above to be redirected to their store site. I don’t own any of these pictures.

If you weren’t sure what you’ve been wanting for Christmas I hope this post gave you some ideas. I hope to be posting some this week, but I’m taking it easy this month. I’ll write more on that soon.

Have a great weekend. Keep the Holiday Cheer going. Until next time,

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christmas Wishlist (Beauty)

Christmas Wishlist (Beauty)

There have been a few things I’ve had my eyes on for awhile, but have been waiting to get. From eyes, to lips, to skincare I’ve been slowly making a mental list of all the things that’s missing from my beauty inventory. I think Christmas would be the perfect time to treat myself to a few of these items, (and also put them out there for anyone who’s curious about what to get me for Christmas this year).

 

HUDA BEAUTY Obsession in Warm Brown

First up, and of course it’s eyeshadow. But LOOK at this palette. It’s absolutely perfect. It has the warm tones everybody loves, with the soft transition shades, and the staple shimmer shade. It’s basically Instagram in 9 colors. I love it. I need it. Where has this little palette been all my life?

ABH Prism palette

I need the pink shade matched with the aqua shade highlighted by that champagne shade on my eyelids Right. This. Second. The amount of looks in the array of styles you could create with this palette is honestly unbelievable. ABH is coming up with some incredible palette. First, it was Modern Renaissance (which I still need to get), then it was Subculture, and now this bad boy up top? High Five ABH, you may as well be stealing my wallet right out of my purse.

ABH Brow Wiz

I may be late to the game, but I hear the ABH brow wiz is a game changer. I have been loving these pencil type eyebrow fillers. Now that I’ve heard so much about this one, I’m pretty much dying to get my hands on one to try it out for myself. I thought about putting the dip brow pomade in this wishlist, but realized that’s probably not the product for me. These little fellas would be just what I need.

Tarte Shape Tape concealer

I know. All I’ve done is rave, rave, and rave some more about this product. I’ve been wanting it SO BAD. I am pretty much completely out of the Maybelline concealer I’ve been using, and I was about to buy another one before I was like “WAIT! Shape Tape!” I’ve heard Kathleen Lights talk about this concealer, and pretty much everyone else too. I just need to bite the bullet. I will get this concealer. I will own it. One day. Hopefully, that day comes soon.

Tarte Tartiest Double Take Eyeliner

Tarte is like the official bada** of the makeup business. They just are always on top for me. I think I love ABH eyeshadow and Tarte for anything else. What draws me to this eyeliner is the two different tips. You could use the pen tip for your lash line and the felt tip for your wing. A must have. This is a necessity. And I love the gold on black packaging. It’s so chic.

Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion

Everyone and their mother has either used, bought, or heard of this eyeshadow primer. I love eyeshadow but I’m just skeptical of primers. I don’t know why. But I’m dying to see if this primer stands up to the hype. Only, I’m not dying enough to pay full price for it, you know what I mean? That’s why it’s here, on my wishlist. *wink wink*

Too Faced Limited edition Gingerbread Man Melted Matte Lipstick

Isn’t this lipstick the cutest lipstick you ever did see?!? I LOVE the packaging on this little guy. The red tone of the lipstick is the perfect shade for the holiday season. I’ve never used the Too Faced Melted lippies before, so I have no idea about their formulas or wear, but what better time to try new things than the present?

Glossier Super Pure serum

Glossier has blown up. I don’t know what they did, but they’ve acquired a hype I’d be afraid to live up to. I’ve only heard amazing things from them, so I’m excited to invest in a few of their products. The one I’m most excited about is this Super Pure Serum. It’s advertised to reduce redness and target blemishes. Lately I’ve been investing in a lot of skin care items, but I haven’t found any that hide the redness of my face well enough to make me feel completely comfortable in public without concealer. I’m hoping this stuff will do the trick.

Glossier Cloud Paint Quad

I don’t know why Glossier decided to name their cream blushes “cloud paints”. However, whatever made them decide to do it, they made the right decision. When I first heard this name, I was thrown for a loop. It made me do some research on it and that made me watch videos on it, and now I want every single one. I don’t even know if I’ll like these colors on my skin tone, but is that going to stop me from spending my money. Of Course NOT!!

Glossier Boy Brow

And finally, we have the Glossier Boy Brow. This is probably one of their most famous products. It’s the first one I ever heard of. Again, the name threw me off and unlike the cloud paints, I wasn’t interested in this product. But lately, it’s been getting a lot of recognition. I have pretty bushy eyebrows, and this product has been said to be perfect for people like me. I think this, on a lazy day when I don’t feel like using the ABH brow wiz, would be a perfect substitute.

(I do not own any of these pictures on this post.)

Thanks for reading everyone. I hope y’all found some products you like in this post, and maybe even some gift ideas for your loved ones. See you again soon,

Ugh Inconsistencies, my old foe, we meet again.

Ugh Inconsistencies, my old foe, we meet again.

I know, I know, my blog posts keeps going in and out with when am I really going to post? What am I actually going to post? So on and so forth.

Many people close to me probably understand why I’m having such a hard time keeping up with my blog, but this post is for those of you who don’t talk to me everyday, and are curious about why in the heck I just can’t get my stuff together.

Basically, this past weekend we went through a move. We’re actually STILL in the process of moving. I told my mom earlier today, “I don’t know why I thought moving was fun when I was a kid.” It’s honestly such a hassle. But we’re extremely happy with our new place. A new place means new inspiration, and I’m all about it. I spent most of my day today organizing my new room. It feels good. Let me know if you’d be interested in a room tour. My friend Chelsey and I talked about it a little bit, and I think something like that would be really fun.

But besides the immediate tasks that demand my attention, there are other factors too. It’s stress, mostly. As many of you are probably experiencing as well, I’m suffering from stress about my finals. I have exams this week, and finals next week. That, plus the increasing demand for help at my work, I’m having trouble keeping up. Let’s not forget that I now live much closer to my boyfriend, so I’ve been taking advantage of that just fine. Don’t get me wrong, I love the busy life. Emma just wouldn’t be Emma if she wasn’t running around like crazy. I just need to find a way to adjust. Please be patient with me.

Another thing I wanted to bring up was that it’s December now. I’m mournfully waving goodbye to fall and happily embracing the Christmas season. I’m very excited to document some festive things I’ll be up to this year and share them all with you. I’m hoping to create some new content that you all will love and appreciate.

I don’t like posting when I feel my content is not gracefully prepared, or my writing needs tweaking, or anything is out of place. This is why most of my posts don’t get published until later in the night. You’d think that after a year of blogging, I’d figure out a posting schedule. Maybe that will be on my New Year’s Resolutions list. I’m sure that list will be a long one for 2018.

Anyways, I wanted to give y’all a short little update on my life and what I’ve been doing. I also want to thank all of you loyal readers that stick with me. You guys keeps me going.

Until we meet again,
