Happy Wednesday Trendsdaaaaay!
I’ve been saying I have wanted to do something a little different for Wednesday Trendsday so here it is! This is my recipe for my absolute favorite acai smoothie. I literally make this every morning. It is sooo yummy and on top of that, super healthy!

Here are your ingredients:

1 package frozen acai smoothie mix (I like the brand Amafruits)
1/3 cup mixed berries
Half a banana
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (my favorite is Dannon Light & Fit)
Handful of spinach
1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk (I like to use Almond Breeze)
Handful of ice

Throw it all in the blender! This smoothie is great also if you’re craving something sweet or just something cold for a hot day! I make this every morning and dump it in my thermos to enjoy while on the subway.
I hope you like my version of an acai smoothie! And that it’ll add a little something to look forward to in the morning :) Thats definitely what it is for me!
Also, check out some cute kitchen things I threw together below :)
See you Friday!

*try and get ingredients that are sugar/fat free or unsweetened; I learned the hard way that although a yogurt may be fat free, it can still contain a ton of sugar, but the brand I mentioned above is great!

Happy Wednesday Trendsday!
Today I am featuring my four favorite lip sticks/glosses that you can find in my purse all the time.

1. Chanel Ultra Hydrating Lip Color in Rouge Coco

If you’re going to go for a bold red lip, it’s always a good idea to have the best version of it on hand. I love this lipstick because its super hydrating but still long lasting. I also use the Chanel Precision Lip Definer lip liner in Scarlet to make sure it does’t look messy. This is the only red lip I have in my bag :)

2. Kylie Lip Kit

Honestly I just bought these solely to see if all the hype lived up to reality, and actually, it did. I first purchased Kylie’s lip kit in Candy K along with it’s corresponding lip liner to see what it was all about, and it turns out I really loved it. These are genuinely great matte lipsticks and I find myself wanting to wear them all the time. They are truly long lasting, even after eating and drinking they may only require a small touch up. After this realization I then purchased my second lip kit in Posie K. I don’t always use the lip liner though, it makes the actual color a lot darker looking so I only break out the liner on a night out or if I’m feeling extra bold. Definitely worth the 30 bucks.

3. Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment

This lip balm I probably use everyday. The reason I love it is because it is actuaaaal lip balm. It really hydrates your lips and keeps them hydrated for hours after. On top of that it has SPF which I really love since the sun has been my enemy my whole life. Although the color is called Nude it has a really pretty light pink tint that goes well with my fair complexion. These come in a bunch of different colors and I will definitely be trying them out in the near future!

4. NARS Satin Lip Pencil

I’m not even sure what to call these because they’re not a lipstick, not a gloss or a balm, and even though they’re called a pencil they definitely do not act as one. I got these as a Sephora gift from earning points, so I was really shocked by how much I liked them; I never tend to like the little gifts at Sephora for some reason haha. But these are essential because they’re a mix of everything. If you feel like a little color but don’t want to commit to a matte or want the shininess of a gloss these are definitely the way to go.

See you Fridaaaay! :)

Happy #WednesdayTrendsday!
Today is a little different because I’ve been really wanting to switch up Wednesday Trendsday! I want to start exploring different areas of fashion and beauty and maybe even some tutorials!

I really love the way the items I carry in my bag are broken down. First I carry all my makeup essentials in this amazing leather pouch from Eileen Fisher my boyfriend’s grandma got me. I mostly carry different lip essentials in this bag. I love the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. It stays on really well and always looks super clean. I also really love these colors for the winter time. I also carry a little round of Bare Minerals concealer which has a little mirror in it and is great for touch ups. Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf is my go-to perfume so I love to carry a little roller of it to touch up after being in crowded spaces (which is all the time in New York). The last things you can find in this pouch are obviously some hair ties, some more lip glosses, and a little Chanel :)

Another lip essential that I am obsessed with is the Sugar Lip Treatment by Fresh. It has SPF which is great for me because I always need to protect my fair skin! I also love that it acts as a lip balm. During winter my lips get so chapped so I am constantly throwing this on. I have it in the Nude shade and its perfect for my skin tone but this balm comes in a million different colors.

I don’t typically use a wallet so I’ll just throw all my cards and ID’s into this cute little card case that my mom got me, especially since my Chloe Drew bag isn’t big enough for a wallet!

The last essential that I always have on me is the bright coin purse by Comme des Garcons that my boyfriend got me. This is where I keep all my Metro cards for the subway and any other important things like receipts or gift cards. I love that its so bright and accessible because no matter what type or size of purse I am carrying, I always seem to lose things in it, and I’m usually always in a hurry to catch the subway!

I hope you liked this new edition of Wednesday Trendsday, and let me know in the comments if there’s anything you’d like to see in the future!

See you Friday :)
