I am not a ~beauty guru~ by any stretch of the imagination but I know a thing or two about lipstick. It's rare to see me with bare lips (even when you think I'm not wearing something - I'm wearing something) and I've built up quite the collection over the past few years.
The first lipsticks I ever owned were from Avon since my mother dabbled in being a sales lady when I was much younger. Since then my love for the stuff has snowballed into the borderline obsession that it is today. I've tried high end brands, drug store stuff and random "I don't know where this even came from" mystery lipsticks. Here are my top five favourite formulations/colours/all around picks:

Sunday is by far my favourite day of the week. As someone who works Monday to Friday, I take my weekends rather seriously. Fridays and Saturdays are typically reserved for shenanigans with friends and Sundays are when I can relax and prepare for the week ahead. I spent today running errands, painting my nails, drinking coffee and catching up on some reading (aka fashion magazines #sorrynotsorry). All of that was so necessary and pretty basic but so amazing and well deserved. I feel as though Sundays are the best days to rest and clear your head before starting a fresh week.
For running errands I just threw on my favourite giant plaid scarf from Forever 21, ripped skinny jeans, my go-to 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli bag and my crested Ralph Lauren blazer - aka my favourite piece in my entire wardrobe. This look is super simple and preppy but I make it my own by throwing a bit of an edgy twist with the raw hem jeans and slip on shoes.

I did something stupid the other day. Online window shopping is something of a hobby for me and sometimes it can lead down a dangerous path. I've been pretty good lately and haven't succumb to temptation but I couldn't pass up these sunglasses. They're just unlike anything I've ever seen before!
This is not a sponsored post by any means, I really just wanted to show them off. Although I'm totally in love with them, I'm not sold on the way they look on me. Prepare to see them in a future outfit post and I'll let you all be the judge. I've been talking about them to anyone who will listen and I whip them out to show people every chance I get. I have really mixed feelings about them (I'm afraid they might be a tad small for my giant head) but their beauty and originality keep pulling me back in. I'm dedicated to making them work for me and I will totally rock them even if they don't necessarily look at home on my head.
