My Vinted Closet // Women’s Online Resale App

There’s nothing in this world I love more than to find a good deal when shopping. That is why shopping at thrift stores is an obsession of mine. I would say 75-80% of my closet is clothes from thrift stores & I am proud of it. I am able to buy more clothes, shoes, and accessories shopping this way. The best is even when you find items with brand new tags and never worn. The amount of excitement I get when finding an awesome deal is indescribable.

I came across this App/website called Vinted almost a year ago. It’s a website where women sell their clothing from their own personal closet. You describe the item in great detail, set the price to whatever you please, take photos, and watch as women send you offers on the items you have posted. The buyer always pays for shipping and you just have to send it out! It’s amazing! The money goes into your “Vinted Wallet” and you can cash out whenever the sale is final!

I have had my account for a year and I have already made over a couple hundred dollars. It’s really a great way to make some extra cash & also clean out your closet! I have purchased a couple items too and have had nothing but great things to say about it. All the items I purchased were in great condition and exactly how they were described. Plus you can’t beat the price! I recommend you check it out for yourself! Below I will put a link to my personal closet so you can check out the items I am selling! XOXO

My Beauty Room // + Need Ideas From You! 

Hey loves, hope everyone’s weeks are going good! First off I want to say thank you for all of you lovely ladies who have followed my blog, commented or just supported me in any way thus far! I love this community and how supportive everyone is! I can’t wait to see your blogs grow as well as mine!

My husband and I who are newlyweds of six months are currently renting a 3 bedroom house. We are using one as our bedroom, the other as our computer room and lastly I get to use the third bedroom as my beauty/getting ready room!!! (Im taking full advantage of this before a baby comes and steals my beauty room away from me!) Because we are renting and don’t want to put a bunch of money into a house that isn’t ours I had to work with what I got! I had to jazz it up to the best of my abilities!

A couple months back my sweet, sweet, sweet husband surprised me while I was at bowling (Yes, totally dorky but I am on a bowling league and I’m quite good!  Crazy!) I came home and looked into the empty third bedroom to see this cute little vanity set up. He put together that corner desk, but this rustic mirror that’s leaning up against the wall and bought a small lighted vanity mirror. I was shocked and blown away by his kindness!!! Even though I wanted sleek, clean, all white furniture for my beauty room this is PERFECT because he put his heart and time into doing this for me and that is all that matters!

Since I am obsessed with thrifting, I found this awesome oval gold frame at the thrift store that was missing the glass for $0.50. I bought a spool of white lace for $1.00 and with a little cutting and gluing, I turned this frame into an earring holder!  I love this on my wall!!!

 

And lastly my newest addition to my beauty room is this garment rack I purchased from Amazon. This really completed the room! I love hanging my favorite pretty tops up, my purses and my new sun hat. The bonus is the built in shoe rack on the bottom! I just love this piece of furniture in my room. Plus it was only $18! I went to Target and a few other stores and they were all around $50! I think this piece is a must for a girls room!  Also, the cheetah print heart wall decal behind it is also from Amazon. I will put both links to these products down below!

I NEED YOUR BEAUTY TIPS LADIES!!!! // Currently I have all my makeup stored in a very large cosmetic bag. This is messy, unorganized and so frustrating! I see all the Ikea dressing tables and white storage pieces they have but I do not want to spend that kind of money. If you have ANY suggestions on makeup storage and organization for me please share in the comments!!! Thanks everyone!!!

Fav Highlighter // NYX Liquid Illuminator 

Happy Monday!!! Here in Michigan we are having an absolute gorgeous morning. Sun is shining and weather is warm! Which for us is rare now of days! Sunshine automatically puts me in a cheery mood and gives me fantastic motivation in the morning to get ready!

While I was starting to do my makeup and went to grab my highlighter, I realized how much I really love this product. I’ve gone through a couple of highlighters in my time, and nothing compares to this one. So today I am going to share with you about the NYX Liquid Illuminator in the shade “Sunbeam”.

  

Product: This product comes in two difference shades. The one that I am holding is called Sunbeam and it’s a beautiful pinky/champagne/white combination and the other color they have is called Gleam which is a bronzed highlighter. I’ve had this for about 2 months now and originally bought it from Ulta for around $7.50. Not expensive at all compared to high end products. I went with Sunbeam for a more natural sunlit luminous glow on my cheeks. 

How I apply:  I place 4 or 5 small dots on my cheek bone surrounding my eye up until above my brow usually. Then I take my middle finger and lightly dab or stipple into my skin on the area I want highlighted. Towards the end if any areas need more blending I will lightly rub it into the skin with a light circular motion. I’ve also heard that you can use this underneath your foundation as a base to create a luminous, dewy look. 

  

  

  

Final result: This picture below is what it looks like on. The camera did not show it’s full effect but you can still see the luminous glow on my cheekbones! Perfect for spring & summer! (Excuse the eye brows, did not do that step until after taking these pictures) 

  

Thank you guys for taking the time to read my post! Hope you enjoyed this product review! Like I said earlier in the way I apply my highlighter, if you would like to see the look of using this highlighter as a foundation base to create a dewy luminous look, let me know & I’ll do a post/video about that look!

Perfect Nude Lip // NYX Butter Lipstick in Hubba Bubba

Hey ladies, I haven’t posted in SO long!!! Being busy does get the best of you! But spring is coming, I’ve come out of winter hibernation and i’m ready to take my blog really serious! I am going to start making beauty tutorials and product reviews since makeup is my passion! (Drugstore makeup to be exact)!

This first product I am reviewing is my perfect nude lipstick. It’s “Hubba Bubba” by the brand NYX. This product has got to be my all time favorite lipstick! Everything from the color payoff, the creaminess of the formulation, and the cute packaging! This is the perfect pink-nude lipstick that I have come across.

So watch my video, leave some comments, tips & suggestions for me for starting out my beauty channel/blog! Thanks XOXO!
