Stripes For Fall

The past month or so, I have been absolutely ADDICTED to Tumblr (follow me here). After scrolling through my latest re-pins, there's a common theme of stripes.

The 10 Most Common Causes For Breakouts

Ever since I was in middle school, I've always struggled with acne. Thankfully, makeup over the years hasn't made me too self-conscious about it, but I do envy those with naturally perfect, glowing skin. Breaking out more recently made me curious as to what the main causes are and therefore what I should change to prevent future breakouts.

After quite a bit of research, here are the top 10 most common causes for breakouts (in no particular order):

Bath & Body Works Fall Candle Haul

After watching endless YouTube raves, blog reviews, and Instagram pictures, I finally went to Bath & Body Works to buy some of their seasonal candles. They were 2/$20, a steal because each candle normally is $19.50. Even better, each additional candle was $10. Therefore, it was 2/$20, 3/$30, 4/$40, etc. I had a coupon too that my roommate gave me that was on the bottom of a receipt for $10 off. To sum it all up, I got 4 amazing new candles of the large 3-wick size for $30. Awesome.

It was a tough decision for sure, but I'm extremely pleased with the candles I decided to purchase.

I've Gone Mad For Maybelline!

I didn't realize that my haul was almost entirely Maybelline products until I began writing this post! Thankfully, it was buy one get one 50% off at Ulta.

  1. Maybelline Eyestudio Quads: highly pigmented, great color selection, cheaper alternative

Always Remember 9/11

I am lucky enough to have visited the World Trade Center the summer before 9/11 and the beautiful Memorial this summer in NYC. Always remember those who sacrificed their life for our country and those who were tragically in the wrong place at the wrong time. Live life knowing that yours could be cut short at any given moment. Tell your family and friends that you love them, appreciate them and thank them. The worst feeling is not getting to say your last words to someone, so instead of waiting for tragedy, make the most of each moment now. ♥

UPDATED Favorite Online Shopping Sites!

Let me start off by saying that I have an online shopping addiction. Seriously, every day on my computer I go to many of these sites to see what new items they have. Though, with my college student budget, I don't end up buying half of what I originally put in my shopping cart. These sites- some strictly online, some are boutiques, others found at the mall- have on-trend, affordable inventory that I highly recommend checking out!

Fall Ulta/TJ Maxx Haul

I could say Fall is my favorite season, for I do love the pumpkin craze (frappuccinos, candles, etc.), but unfortunately being in the middle of Florida, we don't really see (or feel) the seasons. In fact, I have NEVER once in my 21 years of life seen Fall leaves. Call me deprived? Yes...but I do get to go to the beach on Christmas if I want to! My day will come to see Fall leaves...and to see snow for the first time! I'm graduating in May and most likely moving back up to NYC. You better believe I will be in Central Park taking in the Fall beauty as often as I can!!

Favorite Beauty Gurus: Part 3

If you've been following me for a while, then you are probably familiar with my 'Favorite Beauty Gurus' series: Part 1 & Part 2. It's about that time for an updated list of more beauty bloggers/YouTubers I follow and LOVE!
  • Annie Jaffrey
    • Twitter:
    • Blog:
    • Annie is by far one of my absolute favorites to date! She lives in NYC, has a Swiss background, and is a very healthy and happy girl. I admire her a lot. Her blog is just as impressive as her channel, so definitely check out both. She just seems very genuine and sincere, which I think is something not everyone can portray immediately online. She has a great sense of city style and enjoys sharing healthy recipes to help other girls be happy with their bodies.
  • Ingrid (Miss Glamorazzi)
    • Twitter:
    • Facebook: here
    • Ingrid is fun to watch due to her peppy personality. She's silly but has great taste in fashion, jewelry, and makeup of course. She's one of the few YouTubers that I've followed who admits to having very oily skin, something that I share with her. Watching her videos will brighten your day, so check out her channel linked above!
  • Rachel Talbott (Check In The Mirror)
    • Twitter:
    • Facebook: here
    • Blog:
    • When you watch Rachel's videos, you can only imagine how incredibly sweet and genuine she is. She has experience in the industry and brings forth her knowledge for staying healthy and maintaining good skin. She updates her blog very frequently and is a part of my list of what to browse before going to sleep each night! She also includes fashion/OOTDs into her videos and blog, as well as relationship advice.
  • Nikki Phillippi
    • Twitter:
    • Facebook: here 
    • Blog:
    • Nikki is good friends with many of the other gurus such as Rachel and Ingrid in this post. She has such an amazing sense of humor and is also very genuine like Rachel. She is unique to YouTube I think due to her background and is very down-to-earth. She also has many blog posts and videos about staying healthy, eating well, and overall taking care of your skin. She suffered with acne in the past and has shared her stories to overcome and maintain better skin. She's also awesome to follow on Instagram, so check her out there too!
Make sure you check out all of these beauty gurus! Who are your favorites?

xx, Ariana
