Fall Fashion // OOTD Real Fashion for Real Women

Leave a Comment
Happy Monday & Happy October!

I'm so unbelievably excited for Fall to finally be here. I hope that you are doing well and enjoying the colder weather as much as I am!

Today I partnered up with eShakti to bring you today's post and ootd! You may remember if you've been reading my blog for a while that I featured one of their dresses on my blog before, you can click here to read that blog post. For those of you who may not be familiar with eShakti, it is a women's clothing brand that specializes in creating clothing that you can completely customize. From whether you want it to be short sleeved to long sleeved, to having pockets and the length. It is quite literally being like your own designer and who doesn't want to have a full say in how their clothes are?!

I have multiple items from eShakti, so I knew what to expect. I knew that the piece would be high quality and fit perfectly. I've been eyeing this shirt for a while, so when they reached out I knew I had to pick it.

For my custom design I went with pockets, and a little bit longer length so I could wear it with leggings and boots in the winter. I have always struggled with finding the perfect fit, especially when it comes to tops that have a bit of lower cut in the neckline. However, I was able to put in my exact dimensions and it's a perfect fit without being too revealing.

I love the fit of this top, and that I can still partner it with accessories like a blanket scarf for the colder months!

If you haven't checked out eShakti yet, I highly recommend it. Also, keep checking back because I should have a coupon code exclusively for you guys very soon! I'd also like to thank eShakti for sending me another great piece, you guys are truly the best!

Thanks so much for reading, and I hope that the rest of the week treats you good!

All the love,

My Top 6 Beauty Products to Transition into Fall // Staying Hydrated

Leave a Comment
Happy Friday! 

 I hope everyone is doing amazing and that your September is off to an incredible start! I've been really in the fall mood lately, wishing on colder weather while I sip my pumpkin spiced frappe. So today I thought I would share my top 6 beauty products to help make the transition from Summer to Fall.

 1// Philosophy : Hands of Hope $13
This is such a great thing to be able to throw into my bag. It keeps my hands so hydrated so I don't have to keep reapplying and as always, I'm obsessed with all Philosophy scents. Look out for this little guy around Christmas time, they usually carry it at Sephora and Hudson's Bay for the little Christmas ornaments.

This is by far one of my favorite lip masks. If you think it's a waste of money, I can ensure you it's not. I don't know how I ever applied lipstick or lip products in the colder months without this. 

This should be no surprise that this guy made it into the list. I have been obsessed with this foundation since around this time last year. It's so hydrating and my skin is noticeably better when I stick to this. I've tried countless foundations since buying this, but I just can't find one. I have repurchased this multiple times and won't be stopping any time soon!

I know I included the original as well, but I am equally obsessed with this rose gold version. I always get compliments when I wear it out because it gives off such an amazing pigment.

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know all about my love for the Sugar Lip Treatments from Fresh. This is a staple in my makeup bag and I never go anywhere without it. It hydrates like crazy and smells so good. If you're looking for something with a bit more pigment, I highly recommend also trying out their colored lip treatments. 

What would a blog post from me be without this bad boy having a feature? I probably sound like a broken record but I seriously have not been able to find a moisturizer that works better than this one.

As someone who seriously struggles with dry skin, I knew that my top beauty products would have to be all about keeping hydrated. What are your favorite products to use when transitioning into a new season? What is your top Fall find? Please let me know in the comments below! Thank you so much for reading & I hope you have a great Friday and weekend!

All the love,

Eating Healthy & Making Changes

Leave a Comment
Happy Wednesday!

I hope your week has been going well so far, and hopefully this weekend comes fast! Today I wanted to do a little bit of a different post for you guys, as well as myself. For the last little while I have been trying to make changes in my life to get me back to a healthy body and mind. 
As this is a little different post, I wanted to just do a quick little update and see if it would be something of interest, and if it is I will definitely do some more posts around it in the upcoming weeks and months. 

Currently something that I have been trying to focus on is healthy eating. Which is usually what I struggle with the most. I have been trying to find healthy snacks to replace anything that I would usually tend to gravitate towards. I have been doing a lot of research into healthy snacks and have come across some ones that I would love to share with you guys. In the future I would love to share some recipes with you as well. 

Recently I've loved the idea of planning ahead. Although food prepping is something I still struggle with. So for starters, I decided to try and start prepping snacks just to start off with. The infographic that I have attached in this blog post, gives eight different healthy snacks, with as a bonus can recharge your beauty routine! 

Do you guys use any meal services where companies send you snacks every month? I have been wanting to find an affordable and healthy option for this! The info above is from Nuts.com, which provides a service where you can choose the snacks that you'd like and how often you'd like them sent to you. You can also choose if you'd like to just try a sample, which I think is incredible. You can fight the anti-aging fight with Goji Berries. Satisfy your ultimate sweet tooth with Cacao Nibs, which I'm personally so excited to try! I feel like this would be such a great thing to add to things like granola cereal or acai bowls! Kick start your journey with weight loss with the Matcha Green Tea. This is something that definitely caught my eye and I plan on trying it out! Last but certainly not least, Chia Seeds. I love chia seeds, they are incredible to add to everyday things like your breakfast to your supper to help make you feel fuller.
What kind of healthy eating tips do you use? Is this something that you'd like me to start posting about on my blog? Please let me know in the comments below!

Thank you so much for reading,
All the love,

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette // Review & Swatches

Leave a Comment
Happy Wednesday! 

I hope that you all have been doing good, I have missed blogging so much! It feels good to be getting back in the swing of things! Today I figured what better way to get back into blogging than starting out with one of the most hyped up palettes out this summer!

Of course the palette I'm talking about is none other than the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette.

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you will probably know that I have been a bit obsessed with the entire Jaclyn Hill collaboration. If you don't know who Jaclyn Hill is, I highly recommend binge watching her videos on YouTube, because I can pretty much guarantee that you'll be obsessed just like I am. 

The first thing that caught my eye is the packaging. I can safely say that this collections packaging is one of the most prettiest that I've ever seen. White and gold? Sign me up and take my money!

The second thing that caught my eye is the pigmentation and the colors in this palette. It is honestly gorgeous. The mirror that comes in this palette was unexpected but pleasantly welcomed. It's massive and so convenient, especially if you're traveling because it actually allows you to see all of your face. Typically I'm one of those people that travel with an actual mirror because none of my makeup that I typically travel with has an adequate mirror. This completely changed with this palette. 

 Price wise, this palette goes for $62 CAD ($52 US). Which is expensive, but if you're obsessed with highlighter or want a palette that will fit in with any makeup look, you need this in your life. It is sold out online, but I know that some Sephora stores still have it in stock. Also, a great alternative to this palette if you can't get your hands on it or if you want something a bit cheaper, I highly recommend the split pans that Becca and Jaclyn have recently released, which retails for about $46 CAD!

One of my main concerns, even when I first purchased Champagne Pop, was that it would not suit my skin tone whatsoever.  It is very yellow toned, and my skin is extremely pale and has pink undertones. However, I have never had a problem with Champagne Pop, or Prosecco Pop. Every time I wear either one of these highlights I always get compliments about my skin looking healthy and glowing. 

The blushes are the same, they fit in with my skin tone so perfectly. 

Next up is the swatches. This is when it comes down to business. The original pan of Champagne Pop, and the holiday collection started things off with high expectations. This Champagne Collection face palette did not let me down in any way. All of the products are incredibly buttery and apply and blend seamlessly. 

From left to right, starting on the bottom we have Champagne Pop, Prosecco Pop and Rose Spritz. The upper swatches are Amaretto, and Pamplemousse and finally the gorgeous shade on the end is Champagne and Prosecco Pop mixed together. I think Jaclyn and Becca nailed it for the shades in this palette. There is so much variety and I love how they included the mineral blushes for days that you don't want to be as luminous. I also love that they included Amaretto, which is the darker brown shade. On me it acts as a beauty bronzer for the days where I am darker.

Have you guys tried anything from the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection? What's your favorite product in the line? What's your favorite highlighter at the moment? Let me know in the comments below! Thank you so much for reading!
