Fall Blog Post Ideas

Fall Blog Post Ideas
Hey Beauty Bees,

At the end of each month, I like to take some time to look through my calendar and schedule out what posts I am going to do. This is when I like to brainstorm what posts I can write for specific days or seasons within that month. Since Fall has just begun, I have been coming up with a whole list of Fall inspired posts that I can choose from for the months of October and November. Today I wanted to share some of the posts from this list for you to go to if you ever need some inspiration this season.

50 Shades of Berry

50 Shades of Berry
Hey Beauty Bees,

When I think of Fall colors, the first color that pops into my mind is "Berry". This can be in shades of red, pink or even purple. I have seen it in nature, but more often I have seen it in beauty and fashion. Lip shades have been revolutionized by the berry shades and I think it looks so pretty on anyone!

Beauty Buzz Trial - Ipsy Bag September 2015 "Face Fashion"

Hey Beauty Bees,

It took me two whole days before I finally got to unpack the box that held my September Ipsy bag which was themed "Face Fashion". This months bag held some very good looking products for transitioning into Fall. I was only able to very quickly try out each product, so this review is going to be just a first impression of the products.

Ulta Online Beauty Haul

Ulta Online Beauty Haul
Hey Beauty Bees,

**Before I get into the post, I wanted to share that we are finally in the new apartment and almost completely unpacked. I am hoping that I will be able to fall back into my regular 3 posts a week routine (Mon, Wed, Fri). Over the next few weeks, I am going to be working on decorating and furnishing my new space as well as setting up an office for myself to work from. I am planning on sharing many apartment and decor related posts as well as a full apartment tour once its ready. Let me know in the comments below if there are any specific apartment posts you would be interested in! Now on to the post...

Getting a new apartment and a fresh space means I needed some replaced beauty necessities. I figured the easiest way to get this errand done was to put an order online through Ulta, which by the way is my favorite beauty retailer, so I opened the site and started searching. Items like a new brush, alufa and nail polish remover were on the top of my list but we both know how easy it is to add extra items into your online shopping cart.

Fall 2015 Runway Beauty Trends

Fall 2015 Runway Beauty Trends
Hey Beauty Bees,

Today as I sat at my vanity blending my favorite Summer peach colored blush into my cheeks, I glanced up from my work station to the window across the room and watched a leaf slowly drift to the ground. Watching this one natural act brought me to realize that Mother Nature has begun her transition of Summer to Fall, so why haven't I? Today was the day that I was finally going to incorporate some of the beauty trends that I saw during the Fall 2015 runway shows.

Using all of them at once would definitely be considered overkill so over the next few days I decided I will try out a different trend each day. There are 5 that really grabbed my attention during the shows and I wanted to share more about them with you.

How I Save Money While Shopping

How I Save Money While Shopping
Hey Beauty Bees,

As most of you have seen over the duration of my blogging, I have done a lot of hauls. I share shopping hauls not because I like to brag about what I bought or because I can not think of other ideas for posts, I just really love shopping! I feel more comfortable walking through a mall or department store then anywhere else, especially when I need to be cheered up. 

Now over the years, I have constantly been complimented on my new sweater or bag and even asked how I was able to afford that brand new expensive perfume. They also ask how I was able to buy so many things with just a small amount. The answer is I never pay full price - for anything!

Fall 2015 Beauty Wishlist

Fall 2015 Beauty Wishlist
Hey Beauty Bees,

That feeling of Fall has hit me hard this year, especially with all the Fall themed products in stores. While shopping the other day with my sister-in-law, we saw massive amounts of pumpkins, leaves and even Halloween items filling the aisles. Even Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts is on the Fall track with their pumpkin spice lattes and other spice flavored treats. Without going to stores, we can see the first stages of Fall with the leaves starting to change colors and the mornings becoming cooler.

Guest Post - Popular Fashion Trends around the Globe

Popular Fashion Trends around the Globe

In the first decades of the twentieth century, fashion designers started seeking inspiration in different cultures, experimenting with elements of ethnic styles. At first seen as exotic, with the rise of globalization, these pieces entered the mainstream. A hundred years ago, you could hardly see a keffiyeh outside the Middle East, except on a rare adventurer. Nowadays, people wear them in the streets of New York, Tokyo, or Moscow. The circulation of trends from all corners of the world is such that folk costumes are no longer identified with a certain nation, but are rather considered multicultural designs.
Here are 5 pieces that are worn across the globe:

If you remember to pack these three items in your gym back, you will be refreshed and ready for your next class in no time!
