August/September Favorites.

Hello beautifuls! Today I will be talking about my August favorites, I know it’s already the middle of September, but ya girl has been a bit busy. Let me fill y’all in on what is happening in my beautiful life as a wife, mommy, employee, and student, again. Yes, I have started school again, I took a break last semester and now I’m back to torturing myself. I keep telling myself it will be worth it in the end. Unlike, last semester I was doing my general studies and getting all my prerequisite credits done, but, this time I will be doing a program that gives me a little more of an understanding of the field I will hopefully be in once I am done with all my general studies. It also gives me a certification that can help me find a job when we go back to then states. So far, it has been easy, but I’m sure it will get harder the more I get into my program. On top of getting school work done, I have been making my squishy face a big boy room. I’ve been doing some DIY decor for his room, I will do a post about it and show you how cute it turned out, I’m really happy how it turned out. Now, lets get onto the goodies.

My first favorite is a new fragrance I picked up, it is a different scent from my Chanel Chance. A few months ago Tiffany an Co. came out with a perfume and I have been dying to get my hands on it and I’m so happy I finally did. It is a fresh and light sort of scent. It smells amazing and the packaging is beautiful.

These next two favorites are my recent makeup favorites. I know, only two makeup item, who am I? When I was back home in the states I was trying to find a new foundation, for a while I was using the BECCA and Too Faced foundations. After, going to Sephora a thousand times and getting samples of all the good foundations, I finally found a good one. If you’re in the market for new foundation I highly suggest trying out NARS foundation, a little goes a long way and it is full coverage. It applies amazing and it doesn’t make me look caked and above all else, it is the perfect color match. The one struggle I had with all the other foundations were some had pink undertones or too much of a yellow undertone, I have more of a natural undertone. The last makeup favorite is the famous Jaclyn Hill Palette. It is a beautiful palette, it has all the colors you need to create different eye looks in just one palette. This being the reason why I haven’t been reaching for my other eyeshadows as much.

Moving onto some jewelry, a girl can never have to much jewelry. The first piece are rose gold earrings for Henri Bendel, they are so cute and comfortable, and the best part is I got them on SALE. Actually, the next two pieces I got on sale as well. These pieces are from Ted Baker, their pieces are totally my esthetics. How beautiful are these matching bracelet and earrings, both are rose gold with a light pink enamel.

And last, but surely not least is my Louis Vuitton Speedy 30. I bought this a couple months back and it was preloved. The handles and trimming were in bad shape, so for our anniversary my amazing husband sent off my bag to get new leather and handles. It takes a while for Louis Vuitton to get the leather fixed so, by the time I got back from the states my bag was ready. Now, it looks like a brand new bag. I love it so much, it’s absolutely beautiful. The best part is even with fixing the leather and such I still paid half of what I would have paid for a brand new one. Isn’t gorgeous?

That’s the last of my August/September favorites. Sorry I have been absent for a while but, I will hopefully get it together.

Luxury Makeup Haul.

Hello, my beautiful people! I hope y’alls week is going great, we are half way done with the week. Woot Woot! Today, I’m coming at y’all with some bougie makeup products I bought when I was back home. I usually don’t splurge on makeup this much, but I couldn’t resist. I had to treat myself. I also treated my mom and and mother in law to a little Chanel lipstick. They are the best, so they deserve it.

Now, let’s get into these awesome products that in my opinion are worth the coins. The first products are the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick and blush. I am in love with the color of this lipstick, it’s the perfect muted brownish nude. I pair it with some gloss and it is stunning. Obsessed! The blush has got to be my go to blush, I haven’t touched any of my other blushes since I’ve gotten this one. You would think it would be a crazy color, but it’s not, it is sheer but buildable. I can’t get enough of it. Thankfully, Nordstrom’s delivers here so, I will be ordering these products again when I run out.

The next luxury products are from the one and only bougie brand, Chanel. I have been wanting to try out some products from this prestigious brand for a while. They sell Chanel here in Japan, but what they don’t sell is my shade. The Japanese women wear minimal makeup and have the most flawless skin. To have flawless skin, they cover up from the sun, so you can already guess what shade they are. So, I took advantage that I was back home to try out some products. There was one flop, which is why it’s not in the haul. That one flop was the foundation. It had too much of a pink undertone and my undertones are more natural. Even though the foundation was a miss, I did get some amazing products such as, the setting powder, foundation powder, bronzer, mascara, and a lipstick.

The only setting powder I would use was the Givenchy prisme setting powder. It was the only setting powder that didn’t give a flashback and didn’t look too powdery. With that being said, this Chanel setting powder has taken the cake. No flashback and it just melts into my skin. It’s amazing and for the size and how much product is has, it’s worth it. The foundation may not have worked out for me but, the foundation powder sure did. I sometimes don’t want to beat my face but, I sure don’t want to look like I just rolled out the bed, in some cases I do go out like that. Haha. So, for the days I don’t want to use foundation, I just use concealer and a powder foundation. This Chanel powder is so soft and buttery and the coverage is beautiful. It smells amazing and so luxurious, I just take a minute and smell it. I know, I’m a little weird.

Chanel has really taken over in my makeup routine, beside the setting powder being the only powder I use to set my face, the bronzer is the only bronzer I use. It doesn’t matter if I’m feeling a full beat face or just a little powder, I always use the Chanel bronzer. It’s the perfect bronzing shade, it’s so creamy for a powder bronzer , and there is no patchiness. It absolutely flawless, and again it smell amazing.

The last two products are the mascara and lipstick. Besides my tarte, lights, camera, lashes mascara, the Chanel mascara is the only mascara that makes my eyelashes look great without making them look clumpy and all spider leg like. Most mascaras I have tried always flake off and make my eye itch, this mascara wears very well for long periods of time. I honestly love all these products and will be repurchasing them again.

I hope you all enjoyed this haul. See y’all soon!

My Name is Yaneysi and I’m a Shopaholic.

Happy Friyay, beautifuls! I can’t believe I’ve been in Florida for two weeks already, time sure likes to fly by when you’re having fun. Go figure. As, I sit poolside writing this post, I can’t help but be so grateful of how blessed I really am. These pass weeks have been filled with laughter, family love, and lots of shopping, A LOT OF SHOPPING. Not only have I been preparing for my baby boy’s second birthday, but I’ve been taking full advantage of being back in the land where there’s a Target and a Sephora! I’ve been deprived from these places for about a year and a half. It’s a tragedy! So, you can say I’ve been going ham ever since I got here. Just strolling the aisles at Target and having my arm full of swatches at Sephora have been magical. I always do a monthly favorites but, instead I thought I would do a haul of what I’ve got so far. I’ll go by categories from accessories to stationary.

Let’s start of with what my parents got me for Mother’s Day, I got here two days after Mother’s Day but it still counts. My amazing parents got me a Tiffany’s mini heart necklace and Mickey and Minnie kitchen decor. SO CUTE. They are the best.

Now on to the haul, I’ll start with accessories. Target and junk food did a Disney collab its amazing and luckily I was able to get my hands on a few things. I had to contain myself and not buy everything in sight, the struggle is real. Here are a few things I got, some are still available in store and online.

Being back in the states means you can try on clothes without feeling like a fat cow. I love Japan, but their stores aren’t big butt and big hip friendly. So, it was obvious I would buy some cute clothes. I haven’t gone too crazy since I’ve got a party to pay for in a week. But, I couldn’t help myself buying these cute dresses and romper at Target. You can find these online and save 20% off the two dresses.

I knew coming home I would go shopping so, I didn’t bring a lot of shoes. Besides missing Target and Sephora, I’ve missed the discounts store like Marshall’s and TJMaxx . I can always find something good, that something good this time are these cute Jack Rogers sandals for $50! Like Oh My Gosh! I’ve been on the hunt for cute strappy heels and Target came through with these blushy pink heels. I’m obsessed.

On to my favorite thing, makeup! I’ve found my new favorite foundation, my brother was sweet enough to buy me the NARS foundation for Mother’s Day. If y’all go back to my favorite makeup products you’ll see I have the tarte shape tape concealer, let’s just say I scraped and scraped every bit I could till I could get a new. It can now rest in peace in makeup heaven as I got a new one. The other two products are kind of an impulsive buy, but I have no regrets. I never do when it comes to makeup. Lol

Finally, there is no way anyone can go Target and not get pulled in to the dollar section, if you say you can walk right by it, you’re a whole lie. I know I can’t just walk by, so I got a few cute stationary things and pool necessities. I means it’s only $1-$3. Oh let’s not forget good old Walmart, who is really stepping up there game. I picked up some cute cases for my phone and iPad, super cute and cheap. I was sure surprised to see Kendall and Kylie cases, I love the Kardashian/Jenner Klan, I found a cute case with a matching pop socket, tots cute. The last thing is the rose gold phone case wallet I got at charming Charlie’s, another store where I had to contain myself, it’s so esthetically pleasing. Long story short, Florida is a dangerous place for me and credit card. Lol

March Favorites!

Hello My Beautifuls! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! It was a gorgeous one here in Japan! The cherry blossoms are in full bloom and the weather is finally getting warmer. Thank God! Personally, I was over this winter. One of the reasons why is because, school was finally over… until the fall of course. I’m so ready for some spring and summer fun. Who is ready for some summer fun?

It has been a good minute since I’ve posted my interview with the Nette sisters. If you would like to go check it out go ahead and click on the link Sassy Sister’s. I’ve been awful with my posting schedule, but now that school is out, I hope I can get back on track. But, enough with my whining let’s get into the fun stuff!

Today, I’ll be bringing you my March favorites. I have everything from luxury, beauty, and home décor. I have been quite spoiled this month, thanks to my amazing and loving husband. He spoils me rotten that’s for sure. The first goodie I’ll be talking about was a little something from my hubby. I’ve had this on my wish list for a while, it being my Rosalie coin purse. I now have matching wallet for my Neverfull. It’s so freaking cute, it’s even hot stamped with my initials , I absolutely love it. I just love small wallets.

 

My second favorite has to do with my Neverfull bag, it is an organizer. I love my Neverfull, but it can get pretty packed, its in the name itself, Neverfull. This organizer has been a life saver. Thanks to my manager, who is the one that brought it to my attention. Not only does it keep my bag organized but it also protects my bag from getting dirty. Being a mommy a lot goes in my bag, whether I like it or not, so this organizer gives me peace of mind. You can find this pink organizer on Amazon.

 

Now on to some beauty favorites. I don’t have a lot of beauty favorites this month, but these are the few I have been wearing everyday in the month of March. The two lippie products are both from L’Oréal one is a pinky nude lipstick and the other is a pretty pink gloss. I wear them alone and together, either way they both look so pretty.

 

The last two beauty products are nail polishes. If y’all can’t tell by now I love pink and glitter. So, these nail polishes tie my two favorite things together.

And lastly, home décor. I have never had a table setting, but my manager is redoing her house and she inspired me to make my house look cute. My coworker and her were very generous to gift me the place mats, plates, the napkins, and some pretty kitchen towels to make my table look amazing. I got the napkin holders and matching salt and pepper shakers at the store on base. I’m obsessed! Thanks to the dollar store on crack here in Japan, I was able to get some things to make this flower holder. Yes, the flowers in there are fake. I can’t keep plants alive if my life depended on it, it’s very sad. But, I think it looks amazing either way.  I mean look how beautiful it looks!

February Favorite & Giveaway.

Hey there gorgeous! Can y’all believe we are a week away to the end of this short month. So, today I will be talking my new monthly favorites, along with a GIVEAWAY! I’m so excited to be doing my first giveaway on my blog. Shopping is my favorite thing to do, so doing a giveaway gives me a reason to do so. Lol. SHH, don’t tell my hubby. Well, we are going to start of my favorites with something I got last weekend and has made my life so much easier and has prevented me from always loosing my keys. I am talking about my handy-dandy Louis Vuitton 4 Key Holder, this is seriously a game changer.

LRG_DSC03440

My following favorite are two pieces of jewelry I bought at this cute Japanese boutique. These pieces are very dainty and beautiful. They are rose gold, my favorite metal. I can wear the most simplest outfit and it can be pulled together with these pieces. The necklace has a small pearl with a tiny diamond, super pretty. The earrings are everything, the pearl goes under the ear and it is held by the tiny diamond, they absolutely gorgeous.

Now, onto my beauty favorites. I have not changed much in my makeup routine, so I do not have many beauty products this month. So, it has been really cold in Japan and I’ve had a cold, so needless to say my lips and hands have been through some rough times. I love a liquid lip, but they are really drying. These two sets from the body shop, have helped my poor chapped lips and dry hands. I mean they have been on the struggle bus. Not only do they work great but they smell amazing! I got one in mango and strawberry,  The NYX soft matte lip creams have been my holy grail this month, it still gives a matte lip without being too drying and being uncomfortable on the lips. Not to mention how affordable they are. These two lippies in Abu Dhabi and Cannes have been my most used.

I have been wanting to find a new scent, my ride or die perfume is Chanel Chance EAU VIVE. I love it, but I’ve been wanting to grow my perfume collection. So, I bought the YSL Black Opium in a travel size. I didn’t want to buy a full bottle, it’s not the same when you spritz a little in the store. I wanted to try it out and wore it through out the day. I am in LOVE with this scent, it smells sweet, but a little goes a long way. If you’re into sweet-smelling perfumes, this one is a hit in my book. DSC03518

These last two items are my favorite things to buy, which are tumblers and stationary. I can’t have enough mugs, water bottles, and tumblers. It’s an addiction. Who else has the same addiction? I can’t be the only one. This Kate Spade tumbler is so cute and girly. It makes drinking water a lot easier, but its most likely sweet tea in it. Lol. My other addiction is stationary and being in the country that is all about stationary, makes it a lot harder to stop. My favorite season is coming up, which is cherry blossom season. So, I had to buy this cute cherry blossom notepad. Its pink and pretty, it can’t get better than that.

Valentine’s Day Outfits.

Hello Beautifuls! Today I’m coming at you with some cute outfit ideas, from casual and comfy to girly and dressy. With Valentines Day around the corner I was inspired to come up with a few outfits. One of my goals for this year was to revamp my wardrobe and add some pink into my closet (my favorite color). These are all new pieces, so it is kind of like a haul too. My style goes by my mood, sometimes I feel like being very girly and fancy, and sometimes I feel like being comfy, but still look cute and girly. I had so much fun putting these pieces together and I love how each outfit came out. I hope y’all like them and get some ideas for your Valentines Day outfit too.

Outfit # 1 is a casual look. I bought this flowy blush pink shirt from Old Navy. I paired it with these light blue jeans and tan booties. It was very comfy and chic.

ACF7B393-B7FA-4A0C-A078-FFEDA109380F

Staying with the casual look, Outfit #2 is a causal with a little bit of a more feminine and girly twist to it. The blush pink sweater is from H&M and the Black embroidered pants are from Old Navy, these pants alone adds a cute and girly touch. I finished this look with these black block heels from Target.

70209270-5C79-4E8C-92EB-CF118E288B3A

Outfit #3 and Outfit #4 are more of a Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl inspired look. These looks are really girly and pretty. I paired the same blush pink sweater from H&M with a black skater skirt I got from amazon, I have a real obsession with these types of skirts. I paired these outfits with the black block heels from the previous picture. Both of these outfits are cute, but being in Japan, it is a bit cold, so if you are in a cold area I would put some black tights or over the knee boots to keep warm. These two outfits have to be my favorites of them all.

Outfit #4 is a blush skater shirt from amazon and a black dress shirt from Target.

I also came up with a Valentines Day inspired makeup look, which I’m obsessed with. I went with a very girly and pink look because pink is my favorite color. I used two eyeshadow pallets the Naked 3 and the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsession Pallet, both can be found in Sephora. I used the Nars bronzer and blush duo compact and for lips I used a lip liner from NYX in the color sand pink with the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss in the color beige sunrise. I kept it very simple.

January Favorites.

Hello beautifuls! As the first month of the new year comes to an end I want to talk about my January favorites, from books to makeup. Most of these products I have had for a couples months, but I have fallen in love with these products in the month of January.

First, I’m going to mention my favorite book of the moment. This book brings me back to middle school/ high school days. I would read these books all the time. I was at the MCX (store on base) and I found this book and I had to buy it. The stories are full of love and lessons, they are so beautiful. They had different ones, but I chose this one because I am so grateful for my mommy and being so far from her makes miss her so much. I am no longer a two-hour airplane ride from her. I read this after I’m done with my daily devotional and praying. Favorite book this month for sure.

DSC03112

Having so much do this upcoming month, my Lilly Pulitzer agenda has been my best friend. Every line is filled. I have a horrible memory and forget things in 2.5 seconds, so writing things done really help me. With school and a new job, I need to write down my due dates for assignments and write the days and hours I work. I also find it super relaxing to decorate and plan my days. I’m obsessed with stationary, whether it post its, thank you cards, stickers, stamps, you name it and I can’t get enough of it. Here in Japan, stationary and planner decorating is a big thing. Every time I go to Daiso or Seria ( I have a post about these stores, Shopping in Japan.) I always end up leaving with cute stationary. I have about a thousands post its and notebooks. My washi tape collections is growing for sure, I mean who can pass up cute stationary for a $1! I love how small it is and I’m to take it with me, which I do.

DSC03117

Now on to the one piece of jewelry I wear all the time. It does not matter if I’m wearing gold or not. I am seriously obsessed with my Tiffany & Co. necklace I got for Christmas. It one piece that I never leave the house with out, besides my engagement ring.

IMG_5693

For makeup there hasn’t been much of a change since the my favorite beauty products. The only thing that has changed is my go-to bronzer and blush and primer. But, I also still included the products I always use and are my ride or die products. I’ve had the NARS bronzer and blush for a while, but it wasn’t until recently that I have fallen in love with it. The bronzer makes your skin glow and the blush is kind of sheen, shimmer blush, which is my favorite kind of blush. It also saves me time, its two in one. The new primer is Smashbox Primerizer, holy primer! This thing is magic, it makes my face hydrated and flawless. It does an amazing job filling in your pores and giving the face an airbrushed look. Absolute fav!

In 2017, I was starting to get into skin care. I got the Clarisonic Mia in December, and it totally changed the game on how I was my face. While it exfoliates and cleans your skin, it gives you a nice massage on your face. It helps get off every drop of make up that is on my face. The exfoliate I like to use is the Micro-delivery Exfoliating Wash, it is gentle enough to use twice a day. I use in the morning when I wake up and at night before going to sleep. After, I wash my face in the morning I have been using the origins Eye brightening cream. I have really bad dark circles and this has helped a lot in month I have been using it. I also, moisterize with the TATCHA water cream. It is so hydrating and makes my face feel like a baby’s bottom. It is worth every penny, for sure.

Last, but not least, my favorite perfume. Just like skin care I didn’t start getting into perfumes until 2017. I would only use body spray and lotion. But, this is a new love. I have three other perfumes, but the one I reach to more often is my Chanel Chance. It smells so amazing. It has a very girly and sweet scent to it. It is my absolute favorite. DSC03099

I hope you all enjoyed my January Favorites, Let me know if any of these products are your favorite too. Also, let me know what your favorites are.
