Ipsy Beauty Bag Subscription

Hey lovelies,
I recently signed up for Ipsy, a beauty subscription program that sends you deluxe samples and full size beauty products for an amazingly low cost of ten bucks a month.

I have been wanting to try out a subscription program for a long time but many of them are a bit pricey and I was unwilling to pay a crazy amount of money a month to do so.

The fact that Ipsy is so affordable is great and I get the opportunity to discover new beauty brands and try products I wouldn't necessarily purchase on my own.

I just received my second beauty bag and I love that I get a new glam bag with every purchase.

This month's bag has some great products. I am especially excited to try out the Ciate liquid velvet lip color and the Tarte Maracuja oil for my face as a night treatment.

I highly recommend checking them out for yourself. It's such a great bargain.

Brunch in Brooklyn

Lamb Shakshooka 

Hey lovelies,happy weekend! The weather was absolutely gorgeous today. I hope it lasts a few weeks longer. Am I being unrealistic to expect this to continue? Probably but I don't care. A girl can wish. 

I'm always on the lookout  for new places to go to for brunch in Brooklyn since I very rarely venture to Manhattan these days. I love food and I have no problem going the distance in search of good food. 
I had the pleasure of discovering a great little brunch spot today in Williamsburg called Reunion. It's a tiny little Israeli spot with the cutest decor. It didn't occur to me to take pictures of the decor because I was so into the food but believe me. it's super cute. 

Lately I've been very underwhelmed by the places I've been to but not today. The food was sooooo good ya'll. I had a sandwich which consisted of toasted pita topped with lamb. arugula, feta, tahini, sumac and a fried egg. It made for a most delectable experience. 
My friend had lamb shakshooka which is minced lamb cooked in a spicy tomato and red pepper sauce topped with fried eggs, also quite delicious. 

If you are ever in Brooklyn, I command you to go to Reunion. It's a bit out of the way but trust me, it is totally worth the travel.  Apparently it's really popular so expect to wait for a little.  

 Totally unrelated to the food, how pretty is this lip color from Colorpop? It's called LAX and it is one of my go to colors for the season.

Holiday Wish List

Hi lovelies,
Can you believe we have less than two months before the year ends? It seemed like only yesterday we were starting off 2016. Where is the time going?

With the holidays just around the corner, I've already begun shopping for gifts. I like to get started early and take advantage of the amazing sales happening right now.
While shopping for my friends and family, I've seen so many great things for myself too.
My mom always complains how hard it is to shop for me becasue I never know what I want and it frustrates her.
So this year I'm being proactive and I've put together a little wish list. When she asks I'll be ready.

1. These moccasins from J.Crew have been on my radar for a hot minute. They're super cute and I love that they have the faux-shearling lining. They come in a bunch of cute colors but my favorite is the leopard print because I'm basically obsessed with everything leopard. The gold is really pretty too.


2. I love blanket scarves. It's a wonder I don't have one in collection of a billion scarves. I just love how cozy and chic they look. It would definitely come in handy when NY temps drop and winter decides to settle down and show it's face for real.

3. Ok so I am really really late to the party but I don't own a pair of white converse. I know that everybody and their spirit animal were rocking these this past summer and I really wanted a pair but never got around to purchasing them. They're a good shoe to have in your collection and so cute.

 4. How pretty is this French Press though? I love a good cup of coffee and having a French Press is a great way to save money by making it at home. I owned one but sadly it broke and I need a new one in my life.

 5. So many good things have been said about Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes. With the start of a new year quickly approaching I would love to read it. It's always nice to start the year with a fresh perspective and this is one of those books that will help set you up for a year of change.

I'm really simple and there aren't many things I want or even need.

What's on your wish list?
