9 St Paddy’s Day Tees For All Your Day Drinking Needs

It’s that time of year again — St. Patrick’s Day. For me, this is the day of every single year that I am reminded that I have nothing green in my closet and don’t like corned beef and cabbage very much. But I still eat in anyway and wear whatever I can find, in honor of my Irish heritage.

Given that I will be out of the country for St. Patrick’s Day this year and will unfortunately not be able to go out on the actual date, I went out this past weekend with my friends in Hoboken, NJ. While most may consider this to be rather early, I know this is what my Irish ancestors would have wanted ;). How twenty-something of me.

While I did not order any of these shirts, mostly because I celebrated St. Patrick’s Day early this year, I would definitely consider ordering one of these affordable options to wear in years to come.

Whether or not you will actually be partying this year for St. Patrick’s Day, some of these options are still appropriate for school or work. Hope everyone has a happy, healthy and safe St. Patrick’s Day 🙂


A look inside my Colourpop Collection

Hey everyone!

With the Colourpop craze in full swing, I figured I would give you all an inside look at the pieces I have ordered from the brand in the past. With everything on their website costing only a few dollars, their prices truly cannot be beat.

I only own six pieces from them but I hope to expand my collection very soon so that it includes one of their infamous ultra matte lipsticks, which everyone in the Internet seems to be comparing to Kylie Jenner’s lip kits.

IMG_5835I have three of their  lippie stix in the colors Poppin’, a matte (which I got free when I ordered the other products), Bossy, another matte, and Juice Bar which is sheer.

I find that I wear Juice Bar most often, probably because it is sheer and is perfect for everyday. I wore Bossy and Poppin often last semester at college for nights out, and I abolutely loved the way they looked on although they never seemed to stay on as long as I hoped they would. Maybe I will have to check out their lip liners to see if those help to prolong the wear of the lippie stix.

The other lippie stick that is pictured is actually a primer that I wanted to try out, but was unfortunately unimpressed with. Maybe my expectations were a little too high for it but I found that it really dried my lips out and did not prolong the wear of my lipstick.

As a huge fun of YouTube beauty blogger KathleenLights, I knew for sure that I had to check out the shadows that she made with Colourpop. As a broke college student, I was not completely ready to drop $20 on the quads that she released with them, so I tested out a beautiful bronze from Where the Light Is that she made called Kathleenlights. IMG_5853

This color looks absolutely beautiful on the lids – I love applying it with my finger rather than a brush because it works best with the formula. When paired with black liner and a warm brown in the crease, it looks absolutely stunning. It has a pearlized finish and I love the way it makes my brown eyes pop.

I personally struggle a lot with using liquid liner, and have been searching far and wide to find an alternative. I have heard great things about cream liners, and I was not about drop a bunch of money to test one out, so I decided to give Colourpop’s in Swerve a whirl.

When used with my Mac 210 brush, this product applies to my upper lash line like a dream. I just recently this brush with a Macy’s gift card that I had laying around and was shocked by how I was easy to get up-close-and-personal with my lash line. 10/10 would definitely recommend both the liner and brush! I have worn the liner to work and had it last all day long in the hot sun, so you know that it stays on.

All in all, I really do like all of these products, aside from the lip primer which is just kind of gimmicky to be honest. With each of these products costing either 5 or 6 dollars, I would definitely recommend trying them out.

IMG_5845IMG_5849In the coming weeks, expect some pretty cool things to be coming to the blog. I just ordered a bottle of spray on nail polish online to review and am thinking about doing a 4th of July look book so keep your eyes peeled for those :).

Leave in the comments what Colourpop products you guys love the most, I would love to check them out!
