Hey everyone! While spring is my absolute favorite season and I enjoy the warm and sunny days, I am really excited for summer! I thought now would be the perfect time to share my spring 2021 playlist with you all. If you have read any of my playlist blog posts, you would know that I am a big fan of pop music, so that is mostly what this playlist consists of (however I love so many different genres of music)! I really enjoy creating different playlists for certain events or seasons, and I have always loved music.
Hey everyone! After graduating from college, I have even more time to focus on my blogging, so I am very excited to write more frequently! In today’s post, I am sharing my absolute favorite beauty products! Some are more recent finds, whereas others have been favorites for a while now. Almost every product I am sharing today is perfect for the spring and summer time! They are great for glowy and natural makeup looks, which I have been a big fan of for quite some time. I used to be all about the bold and dramatic makeup looks (liquid eyeliner and all)! Things have definitely changed over the last few years! Trends come and go, but I think you can never go wrong with glowy natural makeup! Each product will be linked as well, so you can purchase anything right from this post!
Let’s start off with the eyes…
This eyeshadow duo has been my absolute favorite for almost a year now! It is the Jules Smith Beauty Power Duo Palette in Wise Guy and Gold Mine. It is a product I received from ipsy, and I completely fell in love with it. The colors are pigmented and beautiful, and both are shimmer shades as well. I thought that this duo was perfect for spring and summer, and I still reach for it so often! The colors go so well together, and I love that you could build up the darker shade, or keep it a bit lighter. They are also very blendable! I had previously never heard of this brand before, but I highly recommend checking out this product!
I love trying out new mascaras, however there are a few that I will always come back to. First, my all time favorite: the Thrive Causemetics Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara. I was blown away when first trying this product! It truly does give me all of the length and volume that I want and need! When applying this mascara, it does not clump my lashes together, and it is also extremely easy to remove! You are left with clean eyes and no black residue. Next up is the L’oréal Telescopic Mascara. I recently tried this for the first time and loved it! I really like the wand of this mascara, and this one does a fantastic job of lengthening my lashes. The same can be said for my other favorite, the Maybelline Lash Sensational Curvitude Mascara. The curved wand makes it so easy to apply, and I love the way it lengthens my lashes. Both of these are perfect for more natural makeup looks, which I tend to go for most often!
I honestly haven’t been into liquid eyeliners in quite some time. I used to use it with every makeup look, but over the past few years I’ve loved creating makeup looks without it. Instead, I always reach for my go-to eyeliner pencil. This is by the brand Essence and it is called the Longlasting Eye Pencil. It is waterproof and it says that it lasts for at least 18 hours. Although it is waterproof, it is not too hard to remove by the end of the day! I have always loved applying black eyeliner to my waterline and tightline, and this one does the job! It adds a bit of drama to the eyes, even with simple makeup looks.
And now for the face…
I have been trying quite a few new face primers lately and I recently tried a new one thanks to ipsy! My current favorite is the Ciaté London Watermelon Burst Hydrating Primer. This product definitely lives up to its name! It smells fruity and delicious, and it feels so very hydrating on the skin! It is a great base for my foundation, and I really love the brand as well.
Finding the right foundation that works for you can be a challenge! Everyone’s skin type and tone differs, and I know that for me, I used to struggle to find my perfect match. One day I decided to try the Maybelline Fit Me foundation, and I haven’t turned back. This product has been my go-to for around five years now! I have tried both the matte and poreless and the dewy and smooth, however I prefer the latter. This foundation is not too heavy or too light; it is pretty full coverage, and it lasts throughout the day. I do like to try different foundations, however I feel most confident with this one because I know which shades work for me! If there is ever an important event going on, I like to steer clear of trying new products, especially foundation. I also really like that this one is so affordable! Maybelline has always been a favorite brand of mine!
As someone with acne prone skin, I used to avoid blush at all costs. I felt that it made my skin look even more red and irritated. However, my skin has been clearing up lately, and for about a year now, I’ve really enjoyed wearing blush again! I love the way that it adds color as well as a beautiful glow to my face. I typically like to stick with light pinks. I have been obsessed with the Lottie London Ombre Blush in Serene. This blush has become a staple in my everyday makeup routine! It is a gorgeous light pink shade, and it does have a tiny bit of shimmer in it, which is great for the warmer months! (I also enjoy wearing matte shades on my cheeks; it just depends on the look I am going for!) This blush is also very easy to blend, though I always recommend applying little by little so you can build it up if you need to! It is perfect for so many makeup looks!
You may have heard of this highlighter before because everyone online has been hyping it up like crazy! It is the Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in Precious Petals. I actually discovered this highlighter a few years ago, and it has remained my all time favorite! The color is a stunning rose gold, and any time I apply this to my cheekbones, it gives me all of the glow I am looking for! It is extremely pigmented, though because of how gorgeous it is, it makes you want to apply more and more! In reality, a couple swipes of this highlighter and you will be blinding everyone who walks past you! There are other shades of the megaglo highlighters, but this is by far my favorite, and I highly encourage you to try it out (you won’t regret it)!
Bronzer is another thing that I used to avoid (partly because I did not know how to apply it correctly). At times, I think bronzer can look a bit muddy, that is until I found this one! My favorite is by the brand Estate Cosmetics and it is the Going Nutty Bronzer in Coco. First of all, it smells heavenly! It reminds me of a warm summer day, and it smells like coconut! I really like the shade as well because it is not too dark or too light for my skin tone, and it adds some warmth to my face. I especially love wearing this in the summer, however it looks great any time of the year! I think that the key to wearing bronzer is to find the right shade for your skin tone, and to apply a little at a time. I use an angled brush to apply this into the hollows right underneath my cheekbones, and I like to bring a little bit up to my forehead as well. I start at my ear and bring it forward and up from there. It’s safe to say that I have changed my mind when it comes to wearing bronzer! Now maybe I can try contouring…
And now for the lips…
I always like to apply chapstick because it makes it so much easier to apply a lip color on top. It keeps my lips smooth and soft throughout the day. I’ve tried many different chapsticks over the years, however I just found my favorite! It is the Clearly Balanced Days “It’s the (Lip) Balm”. It smells like peppermint and it has CBD in it as well. I have never raved about a lip balm before, but this one is definitely deserving! It keeps my lips smooth for a long period of time, and reapplying does not have to occur so often. While I would prefer a more fruity or sweet scent, I am not complaining when it does such a great job!
Another new find! Once again, I am a fan of this brand and I had never tried a lip oil until I received this one in an ipsy glam bag! It is the Ciaté London Lychee and Acai Burst Conditioning Lip Oil. What I love so much about this product is that it is like a lip oil and lipgloss in one! Since it is tinted, it is going to look like you are wearing a pink gloss, all while it conditions your lips! This lip oil is not sticky, and it makes my lips so soft! When I wear this, I don’t even have to apply a chapstick underneath! It also has a nice subtle fruity scent to it, which I enjoy!
My sister recently bought this lipgloss and she ended up giving it to me because she did not like the way it looked on her. This did not give me much hope because we are the same skin tone with the same hair and eye color. Well, I was surprised to find that I absolutely loved it! It is the NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss in Bit of Honey. This gloss is not sticky at all, and it is the perfect peach/nude shade that goes with literally any makeup look! I normally prefer lipsticks over glosses, but this one has won me over! I’ve always liked the brand, and I already own a few lipglosses by them, but this one is just amazing overall! I highly recommend trying it out for yourself!
I was difficult for me to narrow down my favorite lipsticks because I own quite a few, and I love so many! I decided to share a couple that I tend to wear most often! First, the Adesse All Day Lip Crème in Beverly Blvd. It is somewhat difficult to explain the color of this product. It is a mix of pink, purple, and nude. It works so well for an everyday makeup look, and it is not too bold or too neutral; it is the perfect in between! It is very creamy and easy to apply, and it does not make my lips look dry at all! Next is the Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Naturally Chic. This is a favorite for many reasons! First, I think it is such a gorgeous pink shade! Every time I wear it, it makes me feel so confident and classy. It is not extremely bright, but it does add a nice pop of color to your lips! It also applies smoothly, and it even smells like candy! I change up my lip colors pretty frequently, but these are two favorites!
There are a couple products I did not mention in this post, however I still use them (such as powder or concealer). I just haven’t found one to absolutely rave about!
I really hope that you enjoyed reading about my all time favorite beauty finds! What are some of your go-to beauty products? I’d love to know! Thank you for reading! Check out my Instagram for more: @sacchere14
Hey everyone! Today I really wanted to share an outfit of the day. Spring is right around the corner, and it’s safe to say that this is my absolute favorite season for many reasons! The weather is gorgeous, the world around us is bright and vibrant with color again, and of course, spring fashion is always very exciting for me!
I am finally going to being posting some spring related content, starting with an outfit of the day! I have been looking forward to sharing this outfit with you all because I feel that it is perfect for this time of year! Where I live, it’s finally starting to get warmer, which I absolutely love! While spring may be a short season, you still have time to rock some spring fashion trends.
I recently bought this adorable dress from Ross, and I immediately knew that I wanted to center an outfit of the day around it! Ross is a very affordable place to shop, and I definitely recommend checking it out if you have one nearby. It is often compared to T.J. Maxx or Marshalls, and they have amazing prices on home décor, clothing, etc. I love this dress for many reasons. First, the pink/mauve color is beautiful for spring, and there are so many small details that make this dress so fun and girly. Any time I see big sleeves, I obsess over them, and when I picked up this dress, my reaction was no different. Sometimes, I love when trends make a comeback, and I now own a few items with big/puffy sleeves! Typically, bodycon dresses aren’t my favorite (I prefer flowy midi dresses for the most part), however I thought this one was very flattering on me. The belt at the waist is a very nice touch, and the zipper going down the front adds even more detail. I also really liked the sweetheart neckline with this dress because it gives it a feminine feel. The quality of this dress is decent, and I paid around $20 for it. Definitely be sure to check out your local Ross, and if this is unavailable to you, I will link dresses that are either similar or have similar characteristics here, here, and here.
As for the handbag, I decided to have a bit of fun! I normally prefer bags that are neutral, however, depending on the outfit, I think a pop of color can look great as well! For today’s look, I went with this bright yellow handbag. I love the floral detailing on the front, and all of the beautiful colors scream spring time! The shape of this bag is super cute and chic too. I thought that since the dress was all one color without any crazy designs or patterns, the bag would pair well with it! It can be worn as a crossbody, but with this dress, I liked it better as a handbag. Anything floral for the warmer months is always on trend and stylish, so I wanted to share a couple handbags that are gorgeous for the spring time! Click here, here, and here to check them out!
For my shoes, I went with a simple pair of nude block heels. I adore these shoes because they are so easy to style and wear, and they can be dressed up or down. They are perfect for spring and summer, and they can be found pretty much anywhere! I think every girl should own a pair of nude heels! I bought these in a size 8.5 at Target last year for around $25. You can purchase these heels here.
I wanted my jewelry to match the details on the dress, so I went with silver. My necklace was a sweet Valentine’s gift from my boyfriend Tom. The infinity symbol is special to us, and I just think that this necklace is so so beautiful (thank you baby)! For my earrings, I went with a pair of big silver hoops to complete the look!
That is all for my outfit of the day! Thank you so much for checking out today’s blog post! I am really excited for all of the content that I plan to share this season! Until next time!
I cannot go one day without listening to music. I listen to music when I’m driving, when I’m working out, and even when I am just sitting around with friends. Today, I am sharing some of the songs that I have been listening on repeat all season long! As I’ve mentioned in other playlist posts, my music taste is all over the place, but pop is my favorite!

I am very excited about sharing this OOTD because I purchased it while on my dream trip. I am a big fan of wearing dresses, and I absolutely adore this one!
Earlier this year, I went on my dream trip to France! Of course, I did a bit of shopping while I was there, and brought back a few pieces that I fell in love with. I want to start by talking about the dress itself. While I was walking through the Latin Quarter in Paris, a few of the girls and I stopped by some of the boutiques. We were really just window shopping, but when we stopped by a boutique called Côte à Côte, something caught my eye.
I purchased this beautiful dress for €29.99. This high-low dress is perfect for spring, and the colors are stunning as well. I actually do not have a lot of green in my wardrobe, so this was different for me! The dress is also white and gold with a little bit of navy blue in there as well. The pattern reminds me of New Orleans, and the ruffles add to the feminine look. There is also a fabric belt to cinch in the waist.
The dress is by the brand “Chic and Jeune”, but sadly, I could not find this dress online. Unless you live by a boutique called Côte à Côte, I am not sure there is any way you can purchase this exact dress. I apologize about this, however, I found a VERY similar dress that can be purchased on Amazon for around $17! Another similar dress is linked here.
As for shoes, I am wearing my go-to black heels. I love the simple yet elegant look of block heels, and I bought these from Amazon a couple of years ago for around $20-$30. They are by the brand “Madden Girl”.
When it comes to jewelry, I love having a staple piece (or pieces) that I wear daily. I am wearing these 2 gold rings that I have been wearing every day since I was about 13 or 14 years old. My mother let me have them, and I love the look of dainty rings. For my earrings, I am wearing a pair that were my grandma’s. When she passed away, my dad let me have some of her jewelry, and I think that these earrings are beautiful. I am also wearing this gold coin necklace that I just purchased from Amazon. I love the vintage vibe that I get with this necklace! Lastly, I added a few gold bangles.
