Prime Find

It’s been a long time coming but I’m back and I’m starting this off with an awesome Amazon Prime find! I will be featuring a new prime purchase once a week and comparing the item to a designer or more high end product if applicable! This weeks feature are these AMAZING, black camo leggings that I scored for $16.99!! I can’t take all of the credit though; I follow @livingmybeststyle on IG and she recommended this awesome find and I had to snag a pair for myself! She mentioned a similar pair of leggings by Spanx and I believe they run about $69. Thank goodness for her recommendation because y'all know your girl is not spending that much on a pair of leggings, no matter how cute they are! You need these in your life!!
I am HUGE on wearing nothing but athleisure wear when I’m not working so this find was literally the most perfect purchase to score! I’d wear them with my adidas runners or even my Tory Burch mini Miller sandals if I’m just running a quick errand. They are so comfortable, and the material is just right! I am obsessed with the print, and I think they’ll add an edge to any outfit! Definitely planning on pairing them with another amazon prime find; stay tuned!! So do yourselves a favor ladies and hop on that Prime train because these leggings will be your new best friends.

*Disclaimer: I linked a similar t-shirt as the one I am pictured wearing was purchased a few years ago.

January Favorites

Hi guys 
I know it's been a really long time since I've blogged and it sucks to say, but life really did get in the way of something that I'm really passionate about :/ 
But today, I wanted to celebrate the new year by showing you some of my favorite things this winter season! These are pieces that I have worn over and over and I love that they're comfortable and versatile. I'm a sucker for oversized and slouchy sweaters and this one was a total score at Express! (Express always has great deals and I got this for 40% off!) This one is fun because it has an exposed detail in the back so I layered it with a lace bralette underneath. It was unusually warm the day that I wore the sweater and I was grateful that it wasn't a long sleeve! My leggings mock the criss cross look and they dress up (or down) any outfit I put together; I wore them out one night with a bodysuit and I was ready to party! My bag is literally my 'mom' bag. I got it on sale at H&M last summer and it's still available on their site :) It's a mess right now but it's a perfectly good house for my lipsticks haha!! Also, my Vans have been EVERYTHING these past two months! I normally wear my Nike free runs when I'm out and about but these kicks make any outfit timeless. They're just as comfortable as my Converse and although I'm not a 'skater girl', they give me a chill vibe ☮  
I hope you all have a safe and wonderful weekend! I made sure to show you some more favorites below!

Battle of the Primers

Benefit Cosmetics the Porefessional // Smashbox Photo Finish // NYX Cosmetics Angel Veil // Make Up For Ever Mattifying Primer 

I know I've been MIA lately, but I am happy and excited to tell y'all that I have all kinds of new things to share with you and I'm coming back with a vengeance! Today, I wanted to share a quick review of a few of my favorite face primers for normal to oily skin types. Now granted, there are tons of other primers out there but these four just so happen to be some of my favorites and have worked well for my skin type! For those that get oily and shiny throughout the day, I recommend using Benefit's Porefessional primer and the Make Up For Ever Base Mattifying primer. They will keep your face matte, making for a smooth makeup application and prevent too much oil from seeping through your foundation. The consistency of Make Up For Ever's primer is nice because it gets tacky at first but it sets quickly and mattifies your face completely! I especially like to concentrate the primers in my T-Zone area as that is where I tend to get the oiliest. Smashbox Photo Finish primer and NYX's Angel Veil are two of my most favorite primers because they make my face extremely smooth and prep my skin for foundation. They're both silicone based, non-greasy and oil free and quite hydrating in my opinion so they'd be perfect for those with normal to dry or mature skin. They smooth out any fine lines and fill in any enlarged pores you may have as well! While each of these primers have different properties and serve different purposes, I've found that they still do the job of keeping my face matte and keep my makeup in place! And good news; NYX's Angel Veil and Benefit's Porefessional are under $20, whereas Smashbox and Make Up For Ever primers range between $37-42! I'm always looking for the best face primers for normal to oily skin so please let me which are your favorites in the comments below! Also, which of these four do y'all like the most?!

Y'all, I am more than excited to talk about this amazing brand I discovered while on Instagram a few weeks ago! Anarchy Street brings us current jewelry and accessory trends and I knew right away that I had to make an order with them and give them a try. I think accessorizing makes all of the difference when it comes to Fashion and sometimes, it doesn't even have to be about JUST jewelry. When I want to play up an outfit, I'll throw on a printed scarf, add a bright bag, or even a make a ribbon choker to make my outfit stand out even more. Anarchy Street provide a variety of fashion jewelry, personalized jewelry, accessories such as handbags, fun phone cases and flash tattoos and to be quite frank, their entire vibe stood out to me and I fell in love. 
And even if you're not big on jewelry or you're hesitant to venture out and take a fashion risk, Anarchy Street want to help you take that first step with their Anarchist Box! It's not a subscription service (you can cancel at anytime) but they do have stylists that help analyze your fashion preferences and provide you with three different pieces that suite you the most based off of your style profile. 
I purchased the Opulent Stone Ring set before I joined their affiliate team to become a representative and I can be 100% honest and happy to say that I am very pleased with my purchase and VERY excited that I can share this amazingly cool brand with all of you! The rings were very great quality and each ring is unique and beautiful. I was also able to leave a note before I made my purchase and I asked that they send me the smallest size possible so that they were a perfect fit and they did just that! Please let me know if you decide to check them out and enjoy 10% off your entire purchase (with free shipping!) using my code JUSTINA10 Have a great one

Winter Feels

This winter season definitely calls for a turtleneck dress! I am particularly loving this one from Forever 21; it was fairly inexpensive and even though it was freezing outside, I survived without a coat because it was surprisingly thick yet not uncomfortably heavy! I chose a monochromatic palette, but only because 95% of my wardrobe consists of mostly black clothing and I personally think that black can make any outfit chic and effortless :) I've also been rockin' the hell out of these combat booties I got on clearance at my local Target right before Christmas and it turns up the style of this sweet dress! Thankfully with this turtleneck I didn't need to layer with a scarf (although it would have looked great with one!) so I kept it simple with a satchel and these awesome, matte black sunnies by Quay from Urban Outfitters.
