Hi! I was tagged for this by asianhomie101 or Pauline :) Go check out her blog!! Here are just some questions for you guys to get to know me better:)

1.) What drink do you order at Starbucks?
I usually order a very berry hibiscus Refresher or the passion Tazo iced tea! I don't drink coffee, so these drinks are perfect :)

2.) What's one thing in your closet you couldn't live without?
I'm probably going to have to agree with Pauline and say jeans! They're so versatile and comfortable!! You can dress them up or down!

3.) What's one thing people don't know about you?
Most people don't know that I get stressed easily.

4.) What's one thing you want to do before you die?
 I want to change someone's life for the better. I want to make someone's day or help them through a difficult time. I don't know how or who it will be, but that' a goal of mine!

5.) What is one food you can't live without? 
I love strawberries and raspberries, especially in the summertime! They are so yummy and good for you, best of both worlds!!

6.)What's one quote you live by?
I try to live by part of a prayer actually which says:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

7.)  What's one thing you like and dislike about the blogging community?
LIKE: I love being able to talk to other girls (and guys!) who love makeup, beauty, hair, and all things girly like me! I love working hard on a blog post, and people enjoying it and commenting!! It makes my day to see a new comment or a new follower.
DISLIKE: I do not like that people will "follow for follow", as Pauline says. I want people to follow me who like my blog and appreciate what I'm doing. I follow blogs that I am interested in and that show that the writer put work into them. I don't care if you have 2 or 200 followers, if I enjoy your blog, I will absolutely follow it!!

8.) What's your number one song on iTunes?
It Stops Today by Colbie Caillat

9.) What kind of style would you describe yourself as having?
I think I have a girly style that sometimes leans toward preppy! I love to casual and comfy though!!

10.) What's your favorite number?
Haha this is weird, but it is 3,5,7,9,13,15, and19. Don't ask! I don't know why there are so many!!

11.) Two hobbies?
I have recently starting training for running, and I enjoy it much more than I thought I would! It's tough while running, but when it's over, you just feel so accomplished and good!
I also love hanging out with family and friends..nothing beats that!!

12.) Two pet peeves?
I do not like when people chew with their mouth open. Trust me, I know you are eating, no need to show me!! And I also do not like when people go swimming in a pool or the ocean with loads of sunscreen caked on and not rubbed in. I don't know why, but that one has bothered me since I was young!!

13.) Your guilty pleasure?
Perusing Sephora multiple times a week haha! I don't even buy anything most of the time, but I just look at everything and swatch it and try it on. LOL!!

✌ Lucy:
And...YOU! :)

Hope you're all doing well, hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me!!

Hey everyone!! I've done some shopping over the last few weeks from a bunch of random stores. Hope you enjoy! Appreciate you reading my post. <3
Swallow Studs
Laurel Studs

Both of these studs are from Stella and Dot. The Swallow studs are in gold, and the laurel studs are in silver. They fit my ears perfectly! And the packaging for Stella and Dot is always adorable:) (Btw there is a sale on both these earrings on the S&D website!)
This top is from Delia's, and I bought it for 40% off! It's pink ombre and is super cute for the summertime. I wear a bandeau under it.
This is the Brush and Pencil pouch from Vera Bradley in the pattern Summer Cottage. I got this at an outlet store for 15% off. I actually don't use these for makeup, I use them as a pencil/pen case. The inside has a lining in it, so it can be washed easily.
I purchased the Deep Tanning dry oil from Banana Boat at my local drugstore. I haven't tried this all day at the pool or beach, but let me know if you'd like a first impression on it! I tested a little on my arm, and it's much nicer than just a pure oil, not greasy at all!
This shirt is from American Eagle outlet, and it was half off. :) They had a lot of colors, but I love this orange one! The back is all crocheted detail, so I wear this with a bandeau.
This adorable daisy headband is from Claire's. It adds a cute boho vibe to your hair down, in a ponytail, or a braid. I personally wear it as a headband, not the hippie way, but either way is cute.
This is from Sephora, and it's Benefit's Stay Don't Stray eye shadow and concealer primer in light/medium. I have not tested this out yet, since I usually don't wear any makeup in the summer, but let me know if you'd like a review or post on this!
I bought Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer. I LOVE this stuff. :) I'm fair skinned but get tan in the summer, so I love this for dusting all over my face in the summer. It's not too dark and not shimmery, so it looks very natural. Also smells like chocolate!<3 But do not get this in your mouth haha, I accidentally did and it tasted gross!!

Hope you enjoyed this summer haul from pretty much everywhere! I read and reply to all of your comments, and would love if you could follow me! Leave your blog link in a comment, so I can follow you back. :) Have a great day!

Hii everyone :) I got my nails done professionally at a nail salon, and I loved how they turned out!
My nails are in the color Flamingo by Color Club which is a neon medium toned pink. :) Heard neons make you look tanner, so why not ;)

Bonus Jonas- Pedicure!! :) 
I normally do my own pedicures, and they come out alright, not the best haha. This time I love the color and how they look! It's the color A Grape Fit by OPI. 

Hope you enjoyed another nail of the day, and comment and request more blog ideas! Don't forget to follow :) Leave your blog link if you would like me to check out your blog. Have a great summer!  <3

You were a beautiful and inspiring little girl, and now you are free from your pain and suffering. We will miss and love you forever!<3

Hey guys! :) I'm here today to tell you about this adorable little set I received as a gift! It's from Crabtree & Evelyn . It includes four products and a travel bag. It is being sold for $20.

The scent is a light floral and fresh scent that is nice and clean for summer. This kit includes a bath/shower gel, body lotion, bar of soap, and hand lotion.

This body lotion has a nice, thin consistency so it's not too thick for summer. I just dot it all over my arms and legs, since there's no pump. Great for mornings, when you don't want to feel covered in thick lotion!


As you can see, I've already used some of this one. :) I use a small dab on a loofah in the shower. I have not used it for a bath yet (I'm not the biggest bath person) Only problem I have with this is that it doesn't foam up as much as my Bath and Body Works shower gels too.


Let's just pause for a moment and realize how cute the packaging is on this soap! Haha love the design. :)

The soap is mini, and I have used it a few times to wash my hands. It's average soap haha, nothing too special!


I love this product! It's so easy to slip into a purse or backpack and use when needed. It's a good size for a gift set, and it is moisturizing! Also love the flowers and butterflies on the packaging!

Overall, I really like this gift set and would recommend buying it! At $20, you get a good amount of product. Also the scent is perfect for summer! :)

Hope you guys are enjoying the warm months. Comment and request what you want my next posts to be on! Also, if you would like to do a collab post with me email me at! Have a wonderful week :)

❁ Fail Product ❁

Hello guys, hope your summer is warm, happy, and long! :) Today I have a fail product :( Boo! This is the Freeman Facial Peel Off Mask in Cucumber. I found it at my local drugstore for about $4. (Just so you know, I have used this on my face many times, I just did it on my hand today for the demo)
My first impressions opening the bottle was wow this smells awesome! The cucumber scent is so refreshing, and the mask had a cooling sensation of my fingers.
Product in my hand

I realized when I started putting it on my hand and applying it to my face, it was difficult to apply evenly. It applied thick and was not easy to spread around my face. I did the best I could and began to wait for it to dry so I could peel it off.
First applied, still wet
I waited until the product was fully dried before removing it because it is a pain to remove semi dry and it would not work properly. It took about 25 minutes to dry. The packaging said it should take 5-10 minutes, but at that time, it was still really tacky. That's a little long compared to most peel off masks I've tried.
Fully dried

When I began peeling it off
As I began peeling it off, it was kind of obnoxious because little by little it would come off. Honestly, I would be peeling this thing forever! And when you think it's all gone, you'll go do something else and feel some of it stuck to your face or neck! Lol! After removing the darn thing, my skin felt tight and not "smooth or silky" like the packaging claims. I heard that the Dead Sea Mineral Mask by Freeman is good, so I may try that..if you have tell me your opinion on it! I hope you enjoyed my first Fail Products post. :)
❁                                                               ❁                                                        ❁  
I personally did not like this product, but if you did, let me know! I love to hear from all of you so please comment away, I respond to all! :) I also want to say a huge THANK YOU for 100+ followers! It makes me sooo happy! Please follow for more posts to come, would love to take requests! Hope you're having a wonderful day/afternoon/night, and smile.<3
