As you guys may or may not know, I went back to school in July. So, my posting has been limited, but I finished all of my school work (almost 3 weeks early, might I add!), so I'm trying to catch up on some posts! This post has a little of this and a little of that, as the name suggests. Let's begin!
This off the shoulder shirt from Arm the Animals feels like it was basically made for me. The only thing I would change is adding an S at the end of Cat, since I've got 4 cats. As I type this, I have Leopold sleeping on my lap, and all feels right in the world. My cats are my children, and I miss them as I would if I had kids. I'm at work and I'm like "I miss my cats. I wonder what they're destroying today." Lol. It's soft and lightweight, perfect for the slightly chilly September days ahead. It's off the shoulder too, so it's got some flare and it isn't just a basic long sleeve shirt. It was on sale when I got it too. They often do sales, so it's best to sign up for their emails and follow them on IG so you don't miss any good ones!
These ADORABLE Iron First Deer flats literally couldn't be any cuter if they tried. They're cruelty free and 100% vegan, from Iron Fist. Look at those big doe eyes (pun intended!), and her cute black bow! I love deers, they're one of my favorite animals. They only had these flats in a size 7, which is a little big for me, but they we're on sale and I didn't care, I had to have them. I'm happy I did. They look cute with jeans, and I can wear socks with them too when I do, so that makes them fit better. I just couldn't love them anymore if I tried. Except maybe if they were like a half a size smaller.
In that same Iron First order I got...
This CareBears pullover was also on sale, and also 100% vegan! It is SO soft. I bought a medium because I prefer my pullovers to be bigger, and I like being able to tuck my hands into my sleeves since I get cold easily. I can't get over how cute the design is. I grew up with these classic CareBears as a kid, and I just pretend the ice cream scoops are vegan lol. Iron Fist always has sales, and today is Labor Day, so I bet there's some good ones going on. They have a variety of items, from goth to kawaii, and everything in between. Check them out, if you haven't already!
Lip balm junkies, you're gonna want to check this one out...
As a lip balm connoisseur, I consider myself an expert in all things vegan lip balm. love the limited ingredients in this balm. All it contains is: Coconut Oil, Candelilla Wax, Cocoa Butter, and Coconut Fruit Extract. Only 4 Fair Trade ingredients. With sensitive skin, I have to be careful with what I'm using. and this stuff has been great. It keeps my lips moisturized, it's long lasting, and it's gentle. I got it at Whole Foods for like $4 or $5, which isn't cheap, but I think it's worth it!
I bought the Too Faced x KVD Lip and Cheek Set, even though the Too Faced products weren't vegan. I was able to sell those, and keep the adorable bag (which was really all I wanted anyway lol), and the two KVD products which I called and confirmed were vegan. The other side of the bag is pink and sparkly, with the Too Faced dog on it, but the KVD side is my favorite. I had a coupon too, so originally it costs $38 but I got it for cheaper than that!
I already know that I will love the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, even though I haven't tried it yet, but I did use the Studded Kiss Lipstick in Muse. Here's what it looks like:
I think this color is universally flattering, no matter your undertone, and I think depending on your undertone, it will look different, which is pretty cool! It's like a unique shade, kind of like a caramel color with a reddish tint? It's hard to describe. I do feel like it left my lips feeling dry, whereas the liquid lipstick, despite being matte, doesn't as much. But, I do think it has pretty impressive staying power. I used lip balm a few times, and it still looked like it was on my lips. Once I try the liquid lipstick, I'll post some swatches. Maybe I'll wear it tomorrow!
So that's all I've got for you guys right now. I'm going to try and post as much as I can before school starts back up on September 20th. I have Math, so A) I want to cry and B) I'll probably be utilizing the Math tutors all the time since Math is not my strong suit, but I promise I'll post as much as I can! I have lots to review, and my next quarterly VeganCuts Beauty Box should be coming for Fall near the end of September! I'm super excited for that!
I hope you're all enjoying your Labor Day!
