Get Your Life Together This Spring

Each new season I like to refresh and reorganize my life. It's so crucial to never stop learning and growing as an adult so as long as you can fix what's not working in your life then you'll be better off as the future comes. We are moving soon (more on that to come) and I've been doing some serious spring cleaning in the meantime. So here's somethings that you can focus on to get your life together this spring!!

Lizzie McGuire x ColourPop Collection


I never and I mean never buy makeup for myself. It's pretty rare when I'll drop $100+ on an entire makeup collection all for myself. I've purchased Colourpop collections for my friends before, but never to keep and use on my own. So when one of my favorite childhood television series got it's own collection I was beyond stoked!





That's right I'm talking about what my dreams are made of and that's Lizzie McGuire x ColourPop collection!! I had the alert set on my phone and everything for when this was collection released and purchased the entire thing with no regrets. So let's dive into the collection and my thoughts.

The names of the colors aside, this palette is beautiful. I don't typically like a lot of bright color eyeshadows, but this one has a great mixture of colors and neutrals to balance it out. When I did the color test on these photos the shadows were sooo pigmented and creamy!! I was honestly so shocked because I've used ColourPop products before and wasn't that impressed but I was very impressed with these colors and how many looks I can put together with just one palette.

Okay so these lip glosses are to–freaking–die for!! It brings me back to the 2000's instantly and it's like they are adult Lip Smackers because they are better quality and my hair doesn't stick to them. That being said these are I guess "flavored." They sort of taste like grape, watermelon, cherry and strawberry/vanilla a little bit. And a little goes a long way, you don't need as much as you think. They're also a little tinted, I'm not sure if the pigment just doesn't stick to me as much, but they definitely are tinted just FYI.

Okay, I'll be honest. This was not a product I cared too much to receive. I love a good lip scrub but bubblegum flavor?? I know this is a nostalgic thing but I didn't need the nostalgic flavor to it. It's still a great lip scrub and product, but it's the flavor for me...bleh

I am not a HUGE blush gal but these are freaking gorgeous. And again, a little goes a long way. One is more of a coral tone where as one is more of a pink tone so keep that in mind if you're trying to decide which one to purchase. Similar to the eyeshadow these were super soft and not "ashy" or "breaking" when I did the skin test.

WOW! Am I a glitter eyeshadow gal now!?!? I—just wow. These eyeshadow gels are so gorgeous!! It definitely took me a while to figure out how to get it just right, but once I did I easily became obsessed. I personally love the pink one, it's so pigmented and and flawless, I just love it.



A Recent Photo Dump

I won't lie to you guys...I have been so busy I really don't have a lot of content from this month. We are super busy planning our next move—stay tuned for that announcement—but in the meantime I just want to share a recent photo dump that I've been collecting. All of these moments don't have a big enough story to hold their own post, but these moments still happened in my life so I want to document them ☺️.

Baby Stassi

These photos are from the first night I met my sweet niece. It's kind of crazy how that was only a month ago and yet she's already bigger 😭😭😭.

Florida

My boyfriend and I went to Florida for a week to see his family. I freaking love his family especially his cousin Cindy (what up Cindy) because she just took me under her wing when we lived in North Carolina and there were so many moments (especially when my boyfriend was overseas) that she was there for me. So I always have a soft spot in my heart for her and her kids and wanted to see her before she moves again!! This trip was all about family so there's not a ton of photos because we just enjoyed quality family time including taking Zach to Disney Springs—I needed the aunt practice hah. He's such a fun kid and quickly became so in awe of Omar it was the cutest.

Photo Bombed

As you can see from this set of photos I just wanted to take some cute Star Wars/Baby Yoda inspired photos for the blog. My outfit was super cute and casual and my parents got me the shoulder Yoda from the Disney Store so I thought, "Oh man this is super cute for a blog post!" Except when I went to take some photos SOMEONE had to be the center of attention and basically these photos never saw the light of day 😂😂.

This Jumpsuit

This one has no story behind it except I thrifted a jumpsuit that fits me. As a 4'11 gal that never happens so it was a win for me!
