Dear Reader, I Caved and Bought Mules

For the longest time, the one pair of shoes I vowed to never get are mules. They are a 90’s trend I could never get on board with.  Bloggers, Vloggers, instagram influencers, etc. have made mules the shoes of the summer and to me, it never made sense. My arguments on this case were, “What’s the point of half a shoe,” and “it’s glorifying flip flops.”  On this day, (actually a few days ago) I caved and got a pair of mules; loafer mules to be exact.


Why? Well,  I found this pair that was under $25, they come in black, and they look a WHOLE lot like this high end pair. There are also three influencers that have made me convert to the mule trend: Blank ItineraryMiss Louie, and  the College Prepster. They make these silhouettes look modern and chic, so I had to give it a try.

Here is a quick pros and cons list if you’re still on the fence about this style:

Pros:

  • They give you an “effortless” put together vibe that I didn’t was possible to achieve with half a loafer
  • no straps or buckles to mess with, just slip on and you’re out the door!
  • variety of price ranges, yes broke college student, you too can give off fashion blogger vibes at a fraction of the price

Cons:

  • I can’t wear them if a lot of walking is involved. Maybe I need a different size, but they are kind of difficult to walk in
  •  Like most open shoes, they aren’t ideal for rainy days

MAC Lipstick Collection

I’ve been collecting MAC lipsticks since I was in high school. It’s not a massive collection, but I love them and I have shades I actually want to use.

Persistence: This is the newest edition to the family. The website describes it as a peachy cinnamon color, and I call it  my perfect nude. I’ve been using persistence the most frequently because it’s such an everyday color for me. Persistence is a matte finish but still super comfortable to wear all day long.

Del Rio: Del Rio is my favorite lipstick when I want a nice everyday color. I like to layer her underneath my Nyx matte liquid lipstick in french maid to make everything more comfortable. The color is described as a muted plum brown and is a satin finish.

Stone: Stone is what I use when I want a full on spice girls 90’s lip. My skin tone pulls the brown color more heavily than the taupe that others tend to get out of it. It is a matte finish (are we sensing a trend?) and a muted greyish taupe brow (straight from mac cosmetics website).

Rebel: My first love. Rebel is the first MAC lipstick I’ve ever owned and I have worn her to DEATH. I got her when I was into super bold lips because I couldn’t blend eye shadow. At one point, I would wear rebel every single day.

Viva Glam 1: This is my perfect red lipstick. It felt good to buy it because MAC donates money to an AIDS charity whenever someone buys products from the viva glam line.

Happy Birthday ❤ 

One year ago, I was in a Starbucks with one of my bestest friends. She cheered me on as made  this wonderful little website of magical beauty. I was 19 and wanted to try this out to see what happened. Fast forward to today and I’m sitting in the same Starbucks, with the same friend, but this time, I’m blowing out a candle!!  I know I’m not the most consistent blogger, but I can’t put into words how much joy this experience has brought me. Talking about my favortie things in the world and being un-apologetically passionate
