Hi everyone! So excited to do this tag today, it seems fun! If you don't know about it, you get a makeup, beauty, or piece of clothing that is in each color of the rainbow including pink and multicolored! And then you give a little review of it. :) 


I love this color! It's a orange undertoned red. This is Essie's "Sunday Funday". I am not a huge red fan, but I actually like this one a lot!


This is a lotion I received from a friend I believe from the drugstore. It's called "I & papaya". It has such a good mango and fruity smell! Forgot I had this, must use it more often!!


This is my new favorite sunscreen! I'm fair and at the beach, I need sunscreen or I look like a lobster who ate tomatos haha.  It is SPF 30 which is perfect if you still want a little tan. And best part...doesn't have that generic sunscreen smell! Actually smells nice!!!


This is the Mentha Lip Shine in Mint, and I bought it from Bath and Body Works. It's a liquid and kind of makes my lips red. Not my favorite!!


Another product from Bath and Body Works, but this one I love!! This is the Dancing Waters hand sanitizer. I adore all hand sanitizers, but this scent is super nice and not too overpowering like some! So if you're in class, you can put this on without smelling up a classroom!!!


Since the Milk Chocolate Soleil bronzer didn't work out for me, I am now using Hoola by Benefit. I really like it! It's matte and a perfect color, not orange or muddy. :) 


Yup these exist. ;) I got these from a friend last Christmas (think they were from Target), and they are these crazy fuzzy boot slippers! They are literally the warmest shoes ever and during a huge snow storm, I wore them constantly!!


These are one of my favorite summer shorts from Aeropostale. They are multicolored flower short shorts. They work well with a ton of different tops!!!

Hope you enjoyed! I TAG YOU!!<3 If you want, please do this tag and I would love to check it out!! Enjoy your day! :)

Lately, I have been loving the summer weather and light summer colors. I got this nail polish at Sephora, and it is Sephora by OPI. 

Color: Havana Dreams

It is such a pretty light blue color, and I did not put a top coat on and surprisingly it has lasted with little chips for a week! :) Does anyone have good top coat recommendations?

Hey ladies! :) How's life been for all of you? Hope it's well! Today's post is what's in my travel makeup bag. This is the makeup I brought on a beach vacation, and I would do my makeup in the car on the way from the beach to dinner. I pack light and do an easy makeup look!

This is my makeup bag with all my stuff in it. :) It's a free bag I received from Clinique! :)

This is my under eye concealer which I also used on spots. It's Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles. It blends easily with my fingers, so it's perfect to bring on the go!

This is my very, very old eyebrow brush from ELF. Haha it's nasty looking, but still does the job! My eyebrows are hard to manage, so it's necessary to brush them out!
This is my bronzer from Too Faced. It's the Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer which I recently featured in a haul. The fluffy powder brush is from Sonia Kashuk. I love the brush, it's so soft and from Target! But the bronzer....NO! I love color, it's perfect for my skin, but because it has chocolate in it, it made my sensitive skin break out quite a bit! I stopped using it, and it went away. So back to Sephora you go! 
This blush brush is from ELF and this is an old Chanel Blush. (Not sure of name) It's a pinky/coral color which is pretty for summer!!
This is my favorite eyeliner!! It's from Clinique, and it's the quickliner for eyes in soft brown. It's a really pretty brown, that is natural and brings out my light brown eyes!! :) Would definitely recommend this.
These two products were my birthday gift for being a beauty insider at Sephora. It's the Benefit's They're Real and Watts up! I like both of them!!
And last, but not mirror! Very necessary haha! It's just this little heart mirror that I've had for a million years. Does the job. :)

Hope you enjoyed this post! Leave me a comment saying what's your must have travel make up product??? I love when I have comments and new followers! More posts coming soon. :) Have an amazing day!!

Hey guys! This is a new series on my blog called Munchie Monday :) I will share with you my fav. food or drink of the moment! Most of them will be pretty healthy (some not hehe), and hopefully this will be helpful if you're looking for a new snack or trying to eat better!!

This week's favorite is:  Pretzel Crisps from Snack Factory

If a pretzel and a cracker had a baby, this is what they would be. :) This is a fairly healthy snack also! It has 110 calories per serving (11 crisps). It has 0g. of saturated or trans fat and is baked!  

This snack is great for dipping in hummus, guacamole, dips, name it! :) When you dip it in hummus or guacamole, you get a satisfying, filling snack which means you will eat less. 
Love this snack! Great for on the go or just a healthy, yummy snack. 
☺                                                ☺                                                     ☺
Let me know if you'd like to see more from this series! I always respond to comments :) Please follow if you enjoy my blog, it literally makes my day! I have many more posts to come! <3

Hi! I was tagged for this by asianhomie101 or Pauline :) Go check out her blog!! Here are just some questions for you guys to get to know me better:)

1.) What drink do you order at Starbucks?
I usually order a very berry hibiscus Refresher or the passion Tazo iced tea! I don't drink coffee, so these drinks are perfect :)

2.) What's one thing in your closet you couldn't live without?
I'm probably going to have to agree with Pauline and say jeans! They're so versatile and comfortable!! You can dress them up or down!

3.) What's one thing people don't know about you?
Most people don't know that I get stressed easily.

4.) What's one thing you want to do before you die?
 I want to change someone's life for the better. I want to make someone's day or help them through a difficult time. I don't know how or who it will be, but that' a goal of mine!

5.) What is one food you can't live without? 
I love strawberries and raspberries, especially in the summertime! They are so yummy and good for you, best of both worlds!!

6.)What's one quote you live by?
I try to live by part of a prayer actually which says:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

7.)  What's one thing you like and dislike about the blogging community?
LIKE: I love being able to talk to other girls (and guys!) who love makeup, beauty, hair, and all things girly like me! I love working hard on a blog post, and people enjoying it and commenting!! It makes my day to see a new comment or a new follower.
DISLIKE: I do not like that people will "follow for follow", as Pauline says. I want people to follow me who like my blog and appreciate what I'm doing. I follow blogs that I am interested in and that show that the writer put work into them. I don't care if you have 2 or 200 followers, if I enjoy your blog, I will absolutely follow it!!

8.) What's your number one song on iTunes?
It Stops Today by Colbie Caillat

9.) What kind of style would you describe yourself as having?
I think I have a girly style that sometimes leans toward preppy! I love to casual and comfy though!!

10.) What's your favorite number?
Haha this is weird, but it is 3,5,7,9,13,15, and19. Don't ask! I don't know why there are so many!!

11.) Two hobbies?
I have recently starting training for running, and I enjoy it much more than I thought I would! It's tough while running, but when it's over, you just feel so accomplished and good!
I also love hanging out with family and friends..nothing beats that!!

12.) Two pet peeves?
I do not like when people chew with their mouth open. Trust me, I know you are eating, no need to show me!! And I also do not like when people go swimming in a pool or the ocean with loads of sunscreen caked on and not rubbed in. I don't know why, but that one has bothered me since I was young!!

13.) Your guilty pleasure?
Perusing Sephora multiple times a week haha! I don't even buy anything most of the time, but I just look at everything and swatch it and try it on. LOL!!

✌ Lucy:
And...YOU! :)

Hope you're all doing well, hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me!!

Hey everyone!! I've done some shopping over the last few weeks from a bunch of random stores. Hope you enjoy! Appreciate you reading my post. <3
Swallow Studs
Laurel Studs

Both of these studs are from Stella and Dot. The Swallow studs are in gold, and the laurel studs are in silver. They fit my ears perfectly! And the packaging for Stella and Dot is always adorable:) (Btw there is a sale on both these earrings on the S&D website!)
This top is from Delia's, and I bought it for 40% off! It's pink ombre and is super cute for the summertime. I wear a bandeau under it.
This is the Brush and Pencil pouch from Vera Bradley in the pattern Summer Cottage. I got this at an outlet store for 15% off. I actually don't use these for makeup, I use them as a pencil/pen case. The inside has a lining in it, so it can be washed easily.
I purchased the Deep Tanning dry oil from Banana Boat at my local drugstore. I haven't tried this all day at the pool or beach, but let me know if you'd like a first impression on it! I tested a little on my arm, and it's much nicer than just a pure oil, not greasy at all!
This shirt is from American Eagle outlet, and it was half off. :) They had a lot of colors, but I love this orange one! The back is all crocheted detail, so I wear this with a bandeau.
This adorable daisy headband is from Claire's. It adds a cute boho vibe to your hair down, in a ponytail, or a braid. I personally wear it as a headband, not the hippie way, but either way is cute.
This is from Sephora, and it's Benefit's Stay Don't Stray eye shadow and concealer primer in light/medium. I have not tested this out yet, since I usually don't wear any makeup in the summer, but let me know if you'd like a review or post on this!
I bought Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer. I LOVE this stuff. :) I'm fair skinned but get tan in the summer, so I love this for dusting all over my face in the summer. It's not too dark and not shimmery, so it looks very natural. Also smells like chocolate!<3 But do not get this in your mouth haha, I accidentally did and it tasted gross!!

Hope you enjoyed this summer haul from pretty much everywhere! I read and reply to all of your comments, and would love if you could follow me! Leave your blog link in a comment, so I can follow you back. :) Have a great day!

Hii everyone :) I got my nails done professionally at a nail salon, and I loved how they turned out!
My nails are in the color Flamingo by Color Club which is a neon medium toned pink. :) Heard neons make you look tanner, so why not ;)

Bonus Jonas- Pedicure!! :) 
I normally do my own pedicures, and they come out alright, not the best haha. This time I love the color and how they look! It's the color A Grape Fit by OPI. 

Hope you enjoyed another nail of the day, and comment and request more blog ideas! Don't forget to follow :) Leave your blog link if you would like me to check out your blog. Have a great summer!  <3
