Sorry this one is LATE AF (and by late I mean, I never did one last week lol). I started a new job, so I work FULL TIME THANK U I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THIS!!!@!#@!#@! (me forever for no reason about things I can definitely do). So maybe I should stop saying I’m broke???? Maybe I’m still broke who knows, I haven’t even gotten my first pay check yet. Okay on to the goodzzzzzzz.
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer @ Sephora $45.00
I was kinda struggling on what to post here as far as beauty goes since I haven’t gotten anything new in a while. I decided just to show you a couple things I use already that you should all know and love as well okay. I love NARS tbh. I have tried their blush(more on that later), foundation, lipstick(I lost it somehow but it was a good one) and now their tinted moisturizer. I got this on a whim because Too Faced decided one day they were just not gonna sell tinted moisturizer anymore and didn’t even consult me on it. I like the light weight of tinted moisturizer just because my skin likes to breakout still even though I’m old, and when I wear foundation on the reg it tends not to like that. I haven’t bought this in a while (i am running out and refuse to go out and get more until every drop is gone from the bottle) and didn’t realize it was so expensive?? I’ll try to do better guys I just wanted a brand I could trust.
Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Body Cream on Amazon $8.49
Okay so I don’t use this particular product the way you’re supposed to fyi. You’re SUPPOSED to let this stuff sit on your legs and burn like the pits of hell in the summer, but I love myself so I don’t do that. Instead, I use it as shaving cream and that is the secret to life. For some reason I have yet to find something that gets my legs so smooth. Yes it smells like dog breath and farts, but it works, so just put some lotion on to mask the smell later.
MoYoTo Womens Genuine Leather Belt on Amazon $14.99
No I don’t make so much money at my new job that I can suddenly afford a Gucci belt- sheesh. I actually stole this idea from another blogger (lol) cause she posted an outfit with this and I was like ?!??!?! okay we’re the same age there’s no way she can afford a Gucci belt and I can’t????????? So I clicked on that shop the feed thing or whatever and saw that she tagged this as an option and I was like whhhaaaaattttt where has this been all my life even though I was never looking?? It’s great for my current NYC life cause I feel like I have to keep up with the 1% as you do.
Free Bread Inc. Gluten free bread at Whole Foods $9.00
My journey through veganism continues. I stopped eating gluten as well (idk if I ever mentioned that?), not because gluten is “bad for you” or because I’m allergic or whatever I just noticed that I am very bloated and kinda icky after eating normal breads and pasta and I would like to enjoy my pasta without feeling like I ate 70 pounds of food. I’ve tried a couple brands of this. Tbh Trader joes has a pretty good one, but the bread pieces are elf sized- so not really ideal. This one tastes like sour-doughy and spongy and very bread- like. I am impressed, and its made for people, not elves.
One of the best things about NYC is all the random free stuff that goes on around here. Which is especially good since everything else costs money so its nice to have a free thing once in awhile to break it up. Went to this like “oh who cares what I look like i’m just gonna sweat and I refuse to put on makeup that makes no sense.” Basically I left the house looking like a troll and my shoes matched my leggings which looked odd and OF COURSE the guys teaching the class were hot and Australian. Sometimes the universe just likes to laugh at me and I find it irritating. Anyway, as far as the class goes, it was really awesome. I burned 465 calories according to my handy apple watch which I don’t know if I’ve ever done before? It was a HIIT style workout, which means you do 3 rounds of three different workouts for 45 seconds on and 15 seconds rest. Each round is about 12 minutes and by the end you are DEEEAADDD. It was a fantastic way to start my Saturday which was filled with a brunch that was in no way gluten-free, but very guilt-free because of the workout. Also, funny side note, one of the Australians was like “Thanks for coming!” and I was so close to saying you too, but I caught myself 1 second too late so what I ended up saying was “You-uh yeah sure” which was basically a stutter. I have never wanted to crawl into my shirt and evaporate more in my life.
So since I got a big girl job, I needed a big girl bag (cause that’s how life works). I really needed something I could just keep a bunch of stuff in if I was gonna be in the city all day and no time to go home real quick (I live far af currently). It took me like all day to decide which bag to get. I went to both the Kate Spade store and the Micheal Kors store and all of their bags were about 300. I make money now, but I ain’t trying to spend no 300 dollars on a bag, at least not right away sheesh. So i decided to just be basic and go to Macy’s. Luckily, they were having a sale and I found this beauty for a little over 100! Which is pretty damn good for a tote bag that’s designer if I do say so myself. I also picked up this lil pom pom just cause it was cute. I definitely recommend it and its still on sale so grab it while it lasts.
Un-success of the week√
(change that yasss to nooooooooo). As stated above, I do love NARS. Their blush is one of my favorites because it’s not too pink, and tends to stay put very well. HOWEVER, this stick-blush is the bane of my existence. I bought it one day when I was running out of the powder blush just to try it, and I’ve been trying to make this shit work for literally months! It’s mostly due to the fact that my skin is not as smooth as a baby’s butt, so it doesn’t go on smooth, and when I try to smooth it around, it comes off. I hesitate throwing it away because money, but there’s really nothing else I can do with it. Still love u NARS.
