Elf Haul & First Impressions






E.L.F. has always been one of my favorite on the budget drugstore brand and i have been rediscovering it recently. 
They were having a sale few weeks ago and i took the chance to get a few things i wanted to try out. 
I have had the chance to test the products out too and if you are interested i can write reviews for you.
I decided to try out the mascara shield this time and i must say what a disappointment it was. 
I got a chance to order my beloved Sunscreen  Spf 45 High definition powder . I found it very interesting since it seemed a quick fix for when it's very hot and i don't feel like wearing sun protection or when i simply forget it. I have found it a very valid product. It is a very light pink high definition powder that becomes almost invisible when applied. The box is very big and will last you a very long while. (Link )
I also restocked on the famous High definition powder ( Link) . i really like this powder and how cheap and valid it is. I consider it the best drugstore translucent powder. The price is very little and the quantity they sell you is very big. It's a win win in my opinion. 
Elf's nail block ( Link) is one of the favorite things of my order. I like how small, compact and functional it is! It does an amazing job on a super small price tag :1$ .
I also decided to try their famous primer since a lot of blogger rave about it. I still haven't made up my mind if i like this product or not. For now i keep using it and trying to decided if it's a failure or worth it. (Link
If you have to buy one product only from elf please make it to be their amazing blending brushes (1$) .I can neve have enough of them. Such a good quality for a ridiculous price! I always make sure to have back ups in case i travel and lose a few of them. I have been buying them for years and they do a super amazing job when it comes to blending eyeshadow.  ( Link

Everything less than 4 $ Clothing and Beauty Haul @ Forever21

Who doesn't like to shop good items on a super low budget? 

Forever 21 is my go to store when it comes to unbelievable prices for good basics. 
I love their 1.90$ cami  (Link) and here in the photos you will see my favorite basic v-neck top that only cost 3.80$!  (Link

I also enjoy their beauty section a lot too. They always have good things for cheap prices. I ended up getting some make up wedges ( the best ones to apply concealer when you do not want to use a make up brush  Link ), black simple hair ties ( i do not know where the huge assortment i had went, is there a hidden place where they all hang around? Link ) , a hair brush since my old one that i use to brush my wet hair died (it was on sale at  the time i purchased it but now is back to its original price , Link  ), a super fabulous face massager ( i use it to delicately scrub my face and wash my make up brushes too , i love it! ) 
I was so happy to see how all the items were so cheaply priced. I will definitely be stocking up on more t shirts and camis when i need to stock up next time. I really loved the quality of them. For being so cheap they are very very comfortable, breathable, good quality and quite durable. 
If you are on a budget or want just some extra basic tops check them out!I got  mine in red, black and white and i love pairing them with casual outfits overtime. They hold up very good when washed. 

Insider tip: if you go on store you will find only a very limited amount of colors and sizes. I always prefer to get them online. This theory has been proven all the times i tried to purchase the camis since they are only available on a handful of colors and 1-2 sizes and online is so hard to choose instead.   














What are your favorite stores for basics or when you do not want to spend too much money on ?

New Year, New Life

As cheesy at it might seem after such a long hiatus of blogging sporadically i am pledging to get back at regular posting and blogging.
The past year have been crazy and lots of things have happened. 
I decided to change my way of blogging and reasons for it. 
I want to do a blog i will love reading, something based on things i will like reading, doing me and not following trends. I want to share my passions, my favorites things, my good days and bad days. I want this blog to become something i will enjoy re reading many years from now. 

Life is too short to be lived following rules . It's all about making our dreams come true. Enjoying every second. 


What more can i say? 

Stay tuned!
