What’s in my travel makeup bag!

This weekend I’m in Orlando to see my boyfriend and as I was packing I thought about being really good with the amount of makeup I took! On this particular trip, I was only taking a carry on just because I didn’t want to trot around with a huge bag for just one weekend. I went light on my makeup bag with which is pretty impressive and I’m pretty happy with myself! I also knew that I would go shopping so downsizing the amount of clothes wasn’t that hard.

In this post, I will share with you all what I take in my makeup bag for one weekend.

This may look like a long list but it really isn’t! I was also able to fit it all in this cute Zebra and Pink bag from Marshalls! Of course I carry this with my on the plane because I’m always scared about something breaking if I check it in or even put it up with my carry on.

Is this a good list or should I have taken less? Tell me about how you all travel!

Fashion Finds!

I’m a sucker for a good bargain so you can always find me at the sale section digging through the mess for that hidden gem that needs to come home with me. Now I know that you may not be able to find the things that I have purchased but I just want you all to see the stuff that I’ve found to maybe inspire you to go out hunting at your favorite store!

My personal favorite places to check out the sale section:

H&M

Old Navy

Forever 21

Marshalls

Ross

Target

Here are the items I’ve scored!

Glittery Pumps from Target $8.98

I got these pretty recent, about 2-3 weeks ago from my local target. I know I’m pretty late on this trend but I hadn’t found a pair that I’d be willing to spend my money on until I spotted these at the sale section at target staring at me. They so happened to be my size and at an EXTREMELY reasonable price, so I snatched them. I haven’t worn them yet but I anticipate them being extremely painful but at least I will look really cute. Wouldn’t this look cute with my last Weekend OOTN?

Large Bag from H&M $15

I found this at H&M while shopping for my friend Denise and I got it because I realized that I don’t have a good shoulder bag. Especially for when I travel, it has become very handy! So many things fit in it! This past weekend I fit a pair of wedges, a blazer, a book, my makeup bag, wallet and a few other things! It also has a zipper so I feel like I can stuff as many things in it without anyone looking at what I have.

Black Skirt with Pink trimming $7

This is another unworn item that my roommate and I both snagged at the sale section of H&M. We both liked the pink trimming and the flattering length, it’s not too short and it’s not too long.

Beautiful Classic Handbag from Ross $18.99

You know that moment when you see something that just catches your eye and just jumps at you? Well that’s what happened with this beautiful bag. I knew I had to grab it and run (not literally) because at Ross things don’t last too long!

Small Messenger Bag from Marshalls $6.99

I found this cute small bag with amazing colors for under $7 at my local Marshalls. I was really excited about it, and bought it on the spot. I don’t always buy bags from Marshalls because they are more on the pricey side so I was pleasantly surprised to find this one.

Hope you all enjoyed reading about some of my favorite bargain finds!

As I mentioned before, I hope this post inspire you to dig through those sale racks to find that hidden gem!

Let me know what are some of your favorite bargain finds or places to find great deals!

P.S. I’m still trying out the BB cream and it’s going pretty well but still setting it with a powder. Also, used the curl calm down cream and no taming. I’m kinda sad about it but I’m going to give it another try!

Weekend OOTN

This weekend I went to dinner at a really nice restaurant for my cousin’s birthday! I put together a cute but also comfortable outfit 🙂 I should have worn another jacket since it got colder later in the evening.

Ring: Forever 21 Between $3-4

My favorite piece from this entire outfit is definitely the blazer! I couldn’t believe it was so inexpensive for such a nicely tailored blazer. It’s hard to find so I had to purchase it.

This was also my first night trying the BB cream and I used my Studio Fix to set it because I was a little scared of it falling off my face!

Yesterday I used it by itself, and I saw a little bit of shininess coming through my T zone. We’ll see what happens in the next few weeks.

Today I used my studio fix again so we’ll see how it holds up for a full day.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Monday!

What’s your favorite thing to do on a Monday so that the day passes by quicker?
