Yesterday, the spring Sephora VIB sale started, so I thought I would round up some of my favorite skin care and makeup products to make your shopping easier. I also included some products that I’ve been eyeing up or just think would be good options too! A lot of these products don’t go on sale often, that’s why it’s a great time to stock up on some of your holy grail products and also try some new products. When looking at new products to try, I always like to purchase some more expensive products during the sale so I can try them without paying full price.
You can shop this sale if you’re a beauty insider, VIB , or Rouge member. If you’re VIB or Rouge, you can receive 15% off with the codes YAYVIB and YAYROUGE. If you’re a beauty insider, you can receive 10% off with the code YAYINSIDER. This shale runs through Monday, April 23rd. To shop any of the products I talk about below, simply score through the slides and click any of the images. You’ll be taken to the direct link. I’ve also linked a few items in the information below the categories. You can click these as well to be taken to direct links.

I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for spring to get here! I know a lot of you have already started your spring shopping. I’m just getting started though since winters in Minnesota last a long time (there’s still a lot of snow right now). Today, I’m going to share with you what’s all on my wish list this spring. I’m so excited to shop for some new spring clothes, shoes, and accessories! I’m sharing my wish list by categories to make things easier. Now let’s get into it!

Happy Friday! It’s been awhile since our last blog post. Honestly we’ve been feeling a bit uninspired lately. This time of the year can be a bit hard for us fashion-wise. Winter starts to feel long and we end up feeling like we wear the same outfits and shoes on repeat. Hopefully we’ll get back into posting blog posts consistently very soon!
On another note- we’re at that awkward time in the year where you want to start shopping for spring, yet it’s still really cold outside(at least if you live somewhere where it truly feels like winter). I’ve definitely been tempted to start shopping for spring clothes, but I’ve resisted since spring is nowhere near in sight for me. You’ll find me bundled up in sweaters for at least another month. Since I’m still wearing winter clothes and will be for awhile, today I’m sharing with you another cozy, winter outfit.

We are well into the winter season, which also happens to be my least favorite season. Sorry all of you winter lovers! I love the holiday season, but once that’s over I’m ready for the snow and cold to go away. During the winter months, I find I get into a bit of a fashion rut eventually as well. With living in Minnesota, I feel like I’m stuck wear the same few pairs of shoes (boots/booties) because I don’t want to ruin my other ones with the salt. Then I end up having my go-to sweaters, vests, and leggings that are on repeat because they are what’s most comfortable, yet warm. The rest of my clothes are left neglected. Anyone else find themselves in a fashion rut during the winter?
This winter, I’m trying really hard not to fall completely into my usual fashion rut. Some weeks when it’s really cold, it does happen. However, I feel like I’m doing better at switching up my outfits. If you find yourself needing some winter fashion inspiration, I hope you’ll get it in today’s post. I’m going to share with you my winter fashion must-haves. The fashion picks I’m sharing with you are the things that I find myself reaching for again and again because I love them so much. To shop any of these items, simply click the title below the image.

Since 2017 has come to a close, I thought it would be fun to share with you my top favorite books that I read in 2017. I’m a HUGE book worm and am almost always in the middle of reading a book. This year I read 83 books (outside of teaching), which I think is a good accomplishment considering I was finishing up grad school for half of the year.
The books I’m sharing with you today are in no particular order. I’m a very indecisive person so I thought I would have too much difficulty putting them in an order. These books are the ones I read in 2017 that I rated the highest, recommended to others, overall loved and just stuck with me after finishing them. Let’s get into my top reads.

With Christmas just a little over a week away (how did that happen?!), it’s time to finish up your shopping! A lot of online retailers are having great sales, as well as free shipping with guaranteed delivery by Christmas. To help you navigate all of the stores with sales and/or free shipping, I’m rounding up the best sales with direct links to shop.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, beauty lovers! Every year around this time. Sephora has their biggest sale of the year. All products and brands are 20% off for VIB and Rouge members. Insiders can get 15% off as well. Sephora only has two sales a year with the other being in the spring. A lot of these brands/products rarely go on sale, so it’s definitely the time to shop.
This is my favorite time to stock up on beauty products from Sephora! My strategy when shopping this sale is to buy my go-to products that I need for back-ups or I’m running low on, as well as new products that I’ve been wanting to try out. When looking at new products to try, I do tend to buy some more expensive items that really never go on sale. I’m going to break down products in this post by what I’ve bought so far, what’s currently in my cart, and other wishlist items/picks.

I can’t believe how fast fall is going this year! It makes me a bit sad since it’s my favorite season and I’m not ready for winter to come at all. This fall I’ve been loving a top that screams fall when you see it. Since fall is going so quickly, I thought I better share it with you now before it’s too late and you’re onto winter clothes. Fyi, this top is another item I scored from Loft. Sorry if you’re getting sick of me talking about Loft, but they’ve just had so many cute clothes and major sales this season!

If you didn’t know, I’m an elementary special education teacher. I absolutely love what I do and wouldn’t trade it for anything! I’m now back to work after a truly amazing summer and working on getting back into my routine for teaching. Last Thursday was our official first day of school with students. Even as a teacher I still get excited and nervous for the first. I also love to carefully pick out my first day of school outfit. I’m sharing that outfit with you in this post!

Besides fashion and travel, reading is a big passion of mine. Rarely am I not in the middle of reading a book. I love summertime because I have more time to read, which means I can cross more books off my to-read list. This summer I read 26 books from June 1st until now. Of those 26 books, I’m going to share with you my top favorites that stood out to me the most and that I would highly recommend.
