Why I am switching from an Erin Condren Planner to a Bullet Journal.

EC_TO_BUJO

If you remember back at the beginning of last August, I mentioned I had purchased an Erin Condren Planner. At the time, THEY WERE HUGE (in popularity)! I felt like anyone who was motivated and organized had them. The planners are structured unlike any other planner I have ever seen with its unique vertical columns. 

One thing that really lured me into buying one was the huge EC planning community. Major YouTube EC planner users showed how they decorated their spreads with custom EC stickers bought from Etsy. If you were a passionate planner, you could apply themes to each week with the many designs found on Etsy.  

It was fun and sparkly at the beginning, but it soon turned a bit dull.

Makeup for Newbs

MfN_1

Last week, a couple friends and I went to get some frozen yogurt (not ice cream, get with the times man) and amongst the conversations on what to do after, my one friend wanted to buy some new makeup. Of course after hearing that my crops were watered, my skin become clear, and I was going to college for free. That didn't actually happen, but I just wanted to share how excited I was to have a reason to go to Ulta. 

At Ulta, I asked my friend what she wanted and she was confused because she didn't know where to start. She was absolutely clueless, which is not bad (love ya, Maheera), but I come from a background where either my friends passionately love makeup or they didn't give a shitake mushroom. Which gave me a bright idea for this post. Today, I will be giving you a stripped down version of what any Newb needs. I am gonna make so simple, even a sixth grader can read it. *Note: if you are a sixth grader, please stay in school*

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit

If you have been following me for some time, you would know that I recently started playing in the highlight and contouring game. Like many, I am poor. So when I see a nice palette that HAS EVERYTHING I need to complete a makeup look, I am willing to splurge or ask for as a gift. 

I received the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit (link) as a gift from my sister on my 18th birthday. I was so excited to receive this product because it is not cheap and easy to get. It costs $80.00 and is only available during the holiday season. Luckily for me, my birthday is a little after the holiday season, so Sephora had leftovers.
