American flag skull tee and denim short

Sunglasses: Tahari // Shorts: American Eagle // Tshirt: TJ Maxx // Shoes: BCBG Generation

I went to Target I think this day. I was studying again and Nate thought I needed a break, so I did take it. It is starting to become a habit haha. My study breaks reminded by Nate are going to be the reason why there will still be outfit posts on the blog. 

I really like the t-shirt I got from TJ Maxx, although skull and such things are normally not my style. I googled the brand, but it does not seem exist online lol. Has that ever happen to you? You find something awesome somewhere, but the name on the tag is nowhere to be found. Anyways that is it... going back to studying.

Lip glosses and balms I have been trying: Revlon. L'oreal, Blistex, Smith's


Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Glossess in Super Natural : When I was thinking about try this range, Lena from Lenallure recommended Super Natural to me. I actually ended up really liking the color, because it was as the name suggested, very natural basic gloss that is comfortable on the lips. 

Blistex Medicated Lip Balm : I have mentioned it in my winter essentials post last year. It is my holy grail lip balm for seriously chapped lips. It is cheap and effective period. 

L'oreal Infallible Le Gloss in Bloom : I really never liked lip glosses until recently. This one was the first one I bought for years of not using lip gloss. It is a quite nice one with awesome scent and taste, and I love the very subtle glitter, which is perfect for night out over lipsticks. Unfortunately, I find the formula to be a little bit rough on the lips. 

Smith's Minted Rose Lip Balm : When people went crazy over Dior Creme De Rose, I wanted to try a lip palm in a tub, though I don't usually like the tub packaging for hygiene reasons. It is my version of being sucked into trend. My first impression was neutral and thought it was bit over priced. But now I really love it, color, formula, and cute packaging.

The First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay Review


I introduced a new cleanser into my skincare routine. It is the Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay from The First Aid Beauty. It is geared towards oily and combination skin. In general, I like it a lot, but I am not really wowed by it either. Though sometimes it is always that the one that is mediocre ends up being the perfect product because it is doing exactly what is supposed to do. I am wondering if FAB clay cleanser ends up being one of those.

Briefly, it is a red iridescent colored deep cleanser free of a few well known chemicals known to be skin irritant. It leaves skin very comfortable without stripping which is what I look for. During cleansing, it feels very cushiony and gelly unlike most gel cleanser that turns into foam completely. I feel completely neutral towards the texture. Overall, it might be worth a try for those of you who have acne prone skin that is sensitive.

Dark Wash Denim with Flowy Pink Top

Sunglasses: Tahari // Top: TJ Maxx // Jeans: J Crew // Bag: Coach // Shoes: BCBG Generation

Nate made me go to the fair the other. I really needed to study, but he insisted I need a break. So I did. It was actually really fun. We had some awesome gyro, wine slushy and saw some animals. I enjoyed taking pictures. Previous times I went to the fair, I was not really into taking photos, so it was a different experience. Also because it was a middle of a week day, it was not crowded, which made the experience even more pleasant. 

I think I am going to do a post on the fair for people who might be interested in going next year. The fair is over this year, so hopefully it would be useful in the future for travelers and new comers to the town.
