Lancôme Hypnose Drama

This is a mascara I LOVE. It goes way back with me all the way to when I was around 15 and really began loving makeup. I would always borrow or be given my moms mini travel size to use and it’s always been one I’ve been in love with because of memories (my moms still around don’t worry haha) and simply that it’s an amazing mascara. 

It’s about $27.50 at Sephora and Ulta and there are a bunch of other mascaras Lancôme makes in case you wanted to check others out. My moms favorite is definicils. 🙂

The brush is not plastic, it is in fact a brush and it’s a bit curved, a bit like an “s” so it grabs every lash well (at least for me). It also smells great! Nothing special really, just fresh. If you really want a mascara that has a scent the YSL babydoll mascara has a nice rose scent. 🌹


Hope you enjoyed this mini review!

It doesn’t get to you 

It doesn’t get to you until you step inside the doorway.
It doesn’t get to you until you hear ” I feel the baby kick.” 
And you’re immediate reaction is to place you’re hand on her stomach. 
It doesn’t get to you until the hour long drive back home that feels like a breeze,
But over time grows more and more distant.
It doesn’t get to you until empty spaces are filled with friends of family.
It doesn’t get to you until you look at the backyard and remember looking up instead of down
It doesn’t get to you until you drive down the road you learned to ride you’re bike on.
You’re first wheels. 
It doesn’t get to you until a tiny hand is placed in the palm of yours and you realize, this is the most precious thing. 
It doesn’t get to you until tears well up in you’re eyes and everything stops briefly.
While you’re hand is on her stomach,
And you can envision the life ahead. 
It doesn’t get to you until then. 
It doesn’t even phase you. 
*** Note: I literally just wrote this out of nowhere thinking of earlier today. Hope you don’t mind me sharing it. I hope you all have a good day too. ***

Lee Stafford Miracle 

This is the Lee Stafford Miracle Heat Defense Spray with Argan oil from morocco. It’s pretty amazing. 

Here’s why: 

1. It smells great.

2. It makes hair look shiny and healthy, not to mention keeps it healthy when used before blow drying or using a curler etc. 

I bought mine off of Amazon last summer (it’s not too available in the U.S. from what I know, sadly), realized I never mentioned it before and so now here you go, it’s the flippin’ best. ✨

I Have A Choice

Get this.

I’m wearing this eyeshadow, I’m wearing this full face of makeup, or at least what *I* consider a full face of makeup— for Myself.

I’m not wearing it because social media told me to.

I have a choice.

I have an option of whether or not I want to wear makeup.

Everyone seems to try to pinpoint what is “right” and what is “wrong” all the time, or they try to keep on everyone’s side to seem like they aren’t bias.

Now let me tell you, I care, I do. I care a lot about everyone I meet, what people think of me (semi-sometimes) because everyone feels this way, it’s just natural to care.

Everyone questions “am I good enough, is this winged liner even, do I even feel like wearing foundation today… no, but I’m going to wear it anyways because there’s this cute guy in my class and in order for me to work up the courage to even look at him I have to look inside my soul, find this confidence that’s buried somewhere, and LET IT FREE by wearing whatever make-up makes me feel damn GOOD on this day.”

Yes, that sentence was completely bombastic and slightly unnecessary.

But the key thing to remember out of what I just said is confidence.

Everyone has it, it’s fueled by different things. Me for instance, I do better at life in general when I feel like myself, when I feel good, whether that’s with make-up or without.

There used to be a time where I wore make-up because I felt like I had to. I felt naked without it, or I felt just completely not myself.

And sometimes I still do feel that way, but I’ve noticed the caring on that level has SUNK, let me tell you.

I went out in public, with no makeup, hadn’t washed my hair, I looked like I was going through a crisis slightly, because I kinda sort of was, and I took a smoothie to this guy that sort of liked me but I wanted to be clear we were just friends and I thought he was sweet.

SoooooOoOoooOOOOOO I went back in the house and immediately was asked “what, you went out like that?” and I said “yes, who cares? If he likes me anyways then he needs to see the real me, and accept me, right?”

*laughs at self *

…………………………………

ohhh my goddd

And then the other person just looked at me and smiled probably internally screaming “what happened to you?!?!?!”

But seriously, I’m sitting here telling you that you don’t have to do what everyone else is doing to feel good about yourself.

You don’t have to wear a full face of makeup; you don’t even have to wear any make-up.

And yes I know there are girls that exist who do both proudly and props to you, I am that person too—sometimes.

But the truth is, I just love makeup. And, I also just love rubbing my eyes.

Everyone stresses about being liked but it’s all about doing whatever you like— that will help you achieve this happiness and validation you’re searching for.

And if you’re really looking for likes, you need to be yourself. An original, not a copy of a neighbor or celebrity; you’ll be surprised how many positive responses you get when you yourself feel good about what you’re doing, wearing, and putting out into the world.

*P.S. I sort of want to film a video on this, do you have any thoughts on it? Am I missing anything or do you sort of relate to me at all? I’d love to hear. 🙂

Love,

Nat

New Changes 

I got an apartment!!

I don’t know how the hell im going to afford it, but I’ll figure it out. 🙂

I’m really excited, it will be much better than living in the dorms.

My own space, no crazy drunks, a bit off campus so I’m not constantly thinking of school or things I should be doing…

And away from my crazy roommate now, that I love but has some tendencys to drive me insane.

Considering I’m an introvert, moving into an apartment with someone that has a lot of the same views is going to be really good I think. 

As I told my sister the details on the apartment she responded with “I won the lottery” sooooo that was cool. I’m hoping this summer that luck spreads to me haha. 

Also, in the spirit of this semester almost being over and new things happening, I decided to try the mango black tea lemonade from Starbucks (I’ve never had before) which now has become a favorite.

Here’s to new beginnings 😄

Dior Addict Lipglow 

I love this!

I have the shade pink 001 in the dior addict lipglow, which is like a lip balm and lipstick in one.

It is meant to change to a flattering pink shade on everyone who uses it.

It smells minty to me although doesn’t give a tingling feeling as some lip products do.

I’ve used it quite a lot, as you can see it’s pretty loved. 🙂

Have you tried any other shades or lip products I should know about?


Love,

Nat 💖
