Ipsy Unboxing & Colour Pop Haul Nov. ’15 | Video

Happy Monday:

I know I’ve been gone for over a week now, and I sincerely apologize!

School has been my biggest priority as of late, and though I did find myself a bit stressed about not posting anything up, I honestly enjoyed the break away from my internet life. I’m currently working wardrobe for the production”The Triangle Factory Fire Project” at my school.  It’s based on the factory fire that took place in New York City in 1911, killing hundreds of factory workers. This was the start of workers coming together and creating unions to ensure that people were working in safe conditions – it’s such an amazing play. Incase guys don’t know, Theater is my field of study. 

Working wardrobe has been such an amazing experience. I’ve always told myself that I had to perform in at least one play before I graduate and watching the actors tell this tale on stage completely solidified that. I’m more than willing to take a break from blogging/vlogging to be on the stage! It’s a feeling I dearly miss. I’ve met so many amazing, creative, positive people and being apart of such an ensemble reminded me why it’s important to physically socialize with people, though I can be an awkward cookie sometimes. Turning off the phone and stepping away from the laptop is needed to live a happy life.

I filmed this video almost two weeks ago, before my life was dedicated to school. I don’t really film beauty/make-up related videos, but I really wanted to share with y’all my latest pick-ups. Am I the only one obsessed with Colour Pop at the moment?

I also combined this haul with this months Ipsy bag, because I thought it’d be fun to combine the two.

Nonetheless, here is my Ipsy Unboxing/Colour Pop Haul:

Happy Hump Day:

pic1I’ve been in a dark funk lately. Don’t worry, it’s not because I’ve been sad or depressed about anything. Usually when I’m in a dark funk, it means everything is going well & dandy. Black is my happy color. Anyone else feels that way or is it just me?

I came up with this outfit a few days ago; I was feeling a bit adventurous and wanted to take a walk around Dumbo, Brooklyn. SIDENOTE: Dumbo is insane, it’s currently under construction but the view you get of the city is beautiful. Literally one of my favorite spots in Brooklyn. Here’s a picture:

It was a bit chilly, but not super chilly, so it was a perfect fit that night. I feel like I’ve been wearing this piece a lot more now, then when I first bought it 2 years ago. It has definitely gained it’s spot as an essential in my closet.

For my bag, I decided to go with my black Brandy Fringe bag because, as I’ve said before, fringe is my life. To be honest, I actually don’t own any other black bag, so unless I wanted to add a pop of color, this would have been my bag choice regardless.

pic3As for shoes, I decided to go with my Nike Free’s.

I use these sneakers when I go to the gym, but I do occasionally have moments when I feel like adding a bit of sporty chic into an outfit.

For jewelry, I kept it pretty simple with pieces I wear all the time. I was really into the tattoo chocker trend 2 years ago, when the 90s was first coming back to style, but I’m beyond over it. I like the bracelet version because it’s not as ‘teen’ as the necklace, but still gives off some spunk.

This was a super simple, quick outfit I put together and I absolutely love the way it turned out. You could never go wrong with an all black ensemble.
