ColourPOP!

Hello, fellow makeup lovers! Okay so I’ve been becoming a little more enamored with the beauty blogging world and indulging in youtube tutorials from people like Laura Lee and Jaclyn Hill. I went through a phase for like, YEARS where I didn’t wear any eye shadow and now I’m starting to add it to my beauty regimen once again. So. Colourpop. First of all, I think I’m completely into fall palettes as far as eye shadows go and the one they sent me is the Mile High best of Super Shock Shadow Collection. I swatched it only arm first and thought, “Okay I am wearing this when I go get my new license photo taken!” and I did! (If you missed it, I did a complete tutorial on my snapchat “kriskw” a couple weeks ago before I went in and slayed it at the DMV) So here I am, for this look I decided to go for a fun, moody, 90’s vibe nighttime look (say that five times fast) and I have to say my favorite thing about this palette is the impressive pigment each shadow holds. Also I am wearing their ultra glossy Finders Keepers lip color.

Top 5 Places to visit before Summer is Over

Okay, I know summer is technically coming to an end…that is…only if you’re going back to school. Aka, if you’ve been thrust out into the real world, summer break doesn’t exist and the season is declared over when you don’t break a sweat anymore walking from your front door to your car. Therefore, you possibly could still be planning a late summer trip (I know I am). So where are the top places I recommend you should visit? I’m glad you asked 😏

1.Eden Roc in Miami Beach

Okay, numero uno on my list…MIAMI…duh! I love this city. The diversity, the culture, the ocean. I mean, if you like to have fun, you’ll be set. The food is great, and it’s one of those places where you’ll feel like you’ve entered another country without having to stray too far from your own backyard (America).
Why you’ll love it here:
Not one, not two, not three, but FOUR luxurious pools will be awaiting you with some of the most friendly staff and best restaurants on site.

Book your stay!

2. Huntington Beach, CA

Okay, so I’m a little biased here from living in this beautiful beach town all of my early twenties. Why did I love it so much? Street fair on Tuesdays, being in the surf capital, the beautiful homes, walking to the beach every day, BONZAI BOWLS, and the fact that you could accidentally stumble upon a chorus of people singing and playing the ukulele. Yep, this town slows down a bit after the US Open and always has something to offer, no matter what day of the week you’re there. Check out Jan’s Health Bar for the most amazing sandwiches and salads, Ruby’s at the end of the pier for an ice cream cone, and go ahead and take a surf lesson!

3. Big Sur, California

Love camping? Ready to have your breath taken away? pack up your friends, turn your cell phones off, and enjoy this majestic piece of heaven in northern California for one of the most beautiful get aways you will go one. You can go glamping, rent a cabin, or what I recommend, tent camping. Looking down at the ocean from the mountains, cooking over a campfire, and the dazzling stars that cover the night sky will guarantee to give you a good reset on life. Remember to pack bug spray and definitely go see McWay Falls!

4. Austin Texas

Okay, so some might think Austin is a giant bar scene…and, sometimes it can be. But lets not forget it’s the best city to visit for live music and bbq! Ever been to Stubb’s? That where you go to chow down and listen to whatever hot band is booked that night. Also, a little out of the city you can visit Hamilton Pool where you can float in the water, have a picnic with your friends, and relax. Just get there early because it’s first come first serve! And don’t forget! Austin has some of the BEST pizza you can order right out of a window.My best fiend and I are in love with Airbnb, so just grab one and get to seeing the town and don’t forget to stop by Hula Hut for lunch on the lake!

5. St Maarten

Because who doesn’t want to say “See ya!” and head for the caribbean. Now this one may take a little more planning (and a passport) but I just had to throw it in the mix. A friend of mine used to live here and talk about how beautiful it was and how I would be missing out if I never made the trip out there. Well, when I finally did he didn’t live there anymore but I still got to play on the island and soak up all the beauty. And, best place to rent a jet ski if you ask me. Be sure to check out Maho Beach (not for the faint of heart!) for some awesome snorkeling and to watch the planes fly over you so low you could high five the pilot.

I’m hoping by now you’re packing your bags and getting ready to head to one of these beautiful places. Either way, enjoy the rest of the season and be spontaneous, have fun, go somewhere new even if it’s a restaurant downtown. Love you all.

Sail Away

Thank goodness for sunny days spend with your closest friends, your bae, your dog, or just a good outfit. One of my favorite things to do is be by the water…doesn’t matter where–it can be a pool, the lake, or the ocean (I’m totally a mermaid). I spent the day frolicking in the sun in my new O’Neill jumper that they sweetly sent over to me. I’m so ready for more days like this.

Somewhere in Venice With Ya’

Well hello 🙂 I have to say I am very much loving all the flowers and beauty I found while venturing around Venice Beach with my friends Cassandra and Sara. I especially loved doing so in this rad dress that Hurley sent me…I decided to dress it way up and give it a different look. I feel the most carefree in a cute sundress. See what I mean and get this dress here!

Overall, there were dozens of outfits we loved and more importantly how all the girls styled them to make them their own. Everyone had their own personal flare and spunk that we couldn’t get enough of. Wouldn’t you want to go shopping with these fashionistas? We sure do!
