Beauty Products I Loved In 2017!

Beauty Products I Loved In 2017!

Hey, Lovelies!

Well, another year has come and gone. Hopefully, 2018 will be better for the world than 2017 was. I know that for me personally, my 2017 started with me being laid off from my job in Chicago and having to move back in with my parents in Louisiana.

However, the end of my year turned out pretty amazing. I got a new job and ended up moving to Austin, Texas!

Anyway, I figured that I would share with you lovelies my favorite beauty products of 2017! Be warned that as I was broke for most of 2017 that most of, if not all, these products are super affordable and can be bought at your local drugstore or an Ulta or Sephora.

To be fair, I listed and linked all of the products with the product descriptions given from their respected websites.

I will be doing in-depth product reviews in 2018, so be on the lookout for those! Now onto my favorite beauty products of 2017!

Walmart Halloween Challenge 2017

Hey Caf-Fiends!

It’s no secret that I am obsessed with Halloween and all things spooky as evident by my past Spooky Sunday posts (which are making a comeback!).

I was recently challenged to find some Halloween essentials in Wal-Mart’s Halloween section for under $30.00. I have to say that I found some great costume pieces for my costume (can you guess who I’ll be?). I also found a great Halloween countdown calendar which I am obsessed with!

If I could decorate my apartment in Halloween decor all year around and get away with it, I totally would. ūüôā

Anyway, check out the video below and let me know in the comments which Halloween decoration is your favorite!

What Ever Happened To Old Fashioned Dating?

Hooking up. That seems like all people have time for and dating apps like Tinder, OkCupid, etc. are keeping the hookup culture alive. What ever happened to dating? To meet cutes? To locking eyes with strangers across the room and to someone asking you out?. Picking you up and handing you flowers?  Everything in today’s society is too fast paced. We all suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out) when it comes to dating and are constantly looking for the next best thing.

We need to slow it down. We need to know that we can still date without feeling like we have to take our clothes off.
