Favorite posts have been my favorite recently ;) But really, I’ve been loving them and wanted to make one too! Some are kinda fall/halloween themed, but mostly just basic stuff  I’ve been loving! If you know anything about my posts, this will be a long one, so get comfy :)…

I’ve been absolutely loving this L’oréal Mask! The exact name isn’t written on it, but it’s for refining and exfoliating. This mask works so well to clear up your skin and detox it. 

It’s pretty cheap for how masks go, only about $10 at the drugstore.  I would recommend this for all skin types as it isn’t too strong but it’s really detoxifying!

Another skincare thing I’ve been loving is the Simple Cleansing Water. I use this to take off my makeup each night. This is very gentle and gets all of my waterproof mascara off too. I use a cotten pad (above^) and apply a bit of it. 

If you want a post about my skincare routine and tips to clear it, leave a comment!!

Going on to makeup, I just have one since I just did a makeup routine so I’ve obviously been loving everything featured there. But I recently got the Maybelline Single Eyeshadow in “Nude Glow”. This is such a beautiful shimmery, cold toned nude!! 

I use this all over my eyelid and then use a darker color from the Blushed Nudes palette for my crease. 

I’ve also been really loving the “afterbraidcurls. Basically just french/dutch braid your hair in the morning, wear the braids for a day and then undo them in the next morning. They leave great curls and no heat; is that not the best combo!!

OMG. I wasn’t able to watch Riverdale when it first came out because I didn’t have Netflix, but since it’s on TV now too I’ve been OBSESSED!! It’s basically a darker version of the Archie comics which I used to read. Comment down below which couple you’re for (if you watch)!! I’m definitely for Betty & Jughead, their so cute!! :)

I went to see this for my friends birthday when it came out (Friday the 13th) and oh my gosh it’s so good!! I usually am not a horror movie person, but personally I thought Happy Death Day was more funny and jump scares. 

I’ve been watching Survivor with my parents since I was like 9 and we’re still watching!! Basically it’s a reality show where a bunch of people go to an island. They have to survive while competing and challenges and not getting voted out at tribal counsel.

If you can’t tell I’ve been in the Halloween spirit with Happy Death Day and then this book; “Deadly Cool.” It starts off with Hartley’s boyfriend (Josh) is cheating on with another girl, then the girl is suddenly murdered and left in his closet. Hartley starts investigating because unlike the police, she doesn’t think Josh did it.

  1. Oh yes I love Riverdale! Betty and Jughead are goals and I do hope there will be a lot more scenes with just the two of them. I also like Archie and Veronica though! And I would love to if Kevin gets a boyfriend! That maybelline eyeshadow looks so stunning! And I do love Havana by Camila Cabello as well :-) xo
