National Lipstick Day

Happy National Lipstick Day everyone! Lipstick is hands down my favorite beauty product to shop for (as you can probably tell from the photos above) because it makes me feel confident and pretty throughout the day. Whenever I'm feeling a bit lackluster or glum, I swipe a bold red on my lips and I instantly feel gratified. I encourage all of you to wear your favorite lipstick and have a fantastic, colorful day!

Brown and Orange

Even though I'm a huge fan of high end makeup, I've been loving the drugstore beauty aisles recently. From the new Covergirl Instaglam collection to the Revlon Moisture Stains, the affordable beauty brands have been hitting the mark every time. I'm enjoying using the Rimmel Glam'Eye Trio in Orion, which I rediscovered when I 'shopped my stash'. The trio includes a shimmery highlight, taupe-mauve, and chocolate brown that are all incredibly pigmented. I applied the mauve shade all over my lid and defined my crease with the dark brown. Because the brown shade is neutral, it can do double the work on the eyes and in the brows. On my lips, I've really been loving the Covergirl Colorlicious Lip Gloss in 4093. The bright orange translates into a flattering warm coral on the lips and is perfect for the summer time! The lip gloss is very pigmented and doesn't feel sticky at all (a big plus for girls who leave their hair down). Both drugstore purchases are amazing and have taught me to shop my stash more often!

A Word On Game Of Thrones

Yes, I know every person and their dog watches Game Of Thrones as its become a cult sensation. When I first heard of the show, all of the violence and sexuality sounded too intense for me until I watched the first episode. My sister reeled me into the excitement of Westeros and the Iron Throne until I was absolutely obsessed. I've been captivated by the Wall and the Knight's Watch through the Dothraki and Winterfell. Each character is so brilliantly played and I'm always swept up into the story lines. I immediately fell in love with Jon Snow, Arya, the Hound, Tyrion, and Bronn and talk about them as if they're real friends of mine. Game of Thrones has such an amazing plot that makes it hard to stop watching. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a new guilty pleasure!
