Is it Worth the Buy? Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

Happy Sunday, friends! Hope you all had a great Black Friday weekend! Today I wanted to share with you my thoughts on one of Too Faced’s most popular products.

The Chocolate Soleil Bronzer is a medium/deep toned matte bronzer with their famous sweet chocolate scent. I got a deluxe size of this when I bought a little trial set with 5 of their best selling products. You all know that Benefit’s Hoola bronzer is my all time favourite so this one had a lot to compete with. I think the overall tone is nice but for my skin tone it borders on being too warm so you have to be careful when applying it.

I find that it looks really nice blended around the temples, cheeks and jawline to wake up your complexion and you can get get away with a really soft and subtle contour if you’re careful to not apply too much. My one complaint is that I find it tough to blend and since it’s such a deep tone that can be a serious issue. Building it up slowly with a fluffy powder brush seems to be the best way to deal with that.

Overall I think it’s a really nice matte bronzer with a fairly good tone. I think it works well in the summer time for those of us with fair skin and could work all year on deeper skin tones. Let me know your thoughts on the Chocolate Soleil Bronzer if you’ve tried it. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great Sunday.

Fall Decorations!

I hope you’ve all had a spooky Halloween! It’s been a crazy busy month for me but I’m finally caught up with school work so I figured I’d share with you all some of the decorations I had up for fall and Halloween. These are super easy and they work great for really small spaces!

I didn’t really like many of the fall decorations I was finding so I figured that I would just pick up some fake leaves and make my own. I got a few that had little wire stems that I twisted together to make sets of three and I also got some tiny loose leaves that I glued to some twine. I put these up all around my room and on my door and they looked super cute! I don’t really have the patience to carve pumpkins so I bought a mini one at a grocery store and took a black sharpie and drew on a jack-o-lantern face. If you want to get more crafty and creative with pumpkins, I’d recommend using fake ones so that you can re-use them. That’ll save you a ton of money and effort!

What kind of decorations did you have for the spooky season? I’m always looking for new ideas! Now on to Christmas decor! Thank you all so much for stopping by!

DIY Goals Chart!

Happy Thursday, everyone! As many of you know, I am going to be moving away from home for the first time on September 4th so over the past couple of weeks I have been planning out some decor ideas. Today I am going to be sharing with you a super cute way for you to organize your goals for each month. I’m not a very talented person when it comes to crafts so trust me when I say this is easy!

You will need: 
-A foam core board
-Sticky notes
-A black Sharpie
-A coloured Sharpie
-A pencil
-Washi tape

To start off you want to cut your board to be the right size. You need it to be big enough to fit three sticky notes up and three across. I made mine larger so that it wouldn’t look too cramped and so I would have space to decorate. Then you want to stick six sticky notes on the bottom portion and one in the top corner.

The sticky note in the corner will say the current month and all of the notes below will be a different goal. Because I am just about to start school again I don’t have a ton of goals for the time being but I would recommend trying to set goals for various parts of your life (school, work, family, social life etc).  Then each month you can replace the notes and write out new goals.

This next bit is optional but I took a silver sharpie and did some cute designs around where each note will go, not only does this look cute but it will help you to put them back in the right spots next time. I also took some washi tape and made a little border around it to clean up the edges.

Goal setting is super important and this is a really easy and clear way to display what you want to accomplish. I have a couple more DIY decor ideas that are coming soon and once I’m settled in I’ll be sure to show you all what my room ends up looking like! I hope you all have a great weekend and I’ll see you soon!
