links + small things

Makeup I’ve loved recently (plus a tip for messy mascara!)

Happy Friday! We are sticking around for the weekend and I’ve got a list of tasks I want to complete and a list of fun too! The school start date is looming so I want to make sure I jam as much as possible into this last month or so of summer!

Speaking of summer, I’ve found the perfect products to smell like a luxury tropical resort!

The Ouai St. Barts Body Cleanser is absolutely divine. If they made it into a perfume, I would buy it so fast. It has notes of dragon fruit, orange blossom, tuberose, and more.

For perfume, though, I’ve enjoyed the Ellis Brooklyn Sand fragrance. It’s subtle but smells like vanilla, coconut, and the beach.

The Lux Unfiltered body cream, not the tanning cream, is the nicest Santal scent. It lingers all day and keeps my skip very moisturized!

And here are a few things I mentioned on Instagram Stories recently that you may have missed:
