Madewell Spring Sale

Just had to pop in real quick because Madewell is doing a surprise Spring sale! And some of the things that I've tried on here to show you and also bought are part of it. Their Spring Sale is selection of pieces you can take 25% off (CODE: HISUNSHINE ). Trust me when I say I didn't see this coming! It's the perfect time to pick up some basics or cute pieces to update your wardrobe for Spring. That jumpsuit up there was one piece I had to pick up (haven't took pictures of it yet) because it fits so well and pockets! It can be dressed up or down and one you'll have in your closet forever! If you're not sure about sizing you can read about it here.

TIER-SLEEVE PULLOVER SWEATER $88 (NOW $66) // See it styled here.

DENIM WRAP TOP $78 (NOW $58.50) // See it styled here

5-Minute Natural Makeup Routine

Happy 1st day of Spring! While it might not feel quite like it (currently raining here), I thought it would be good to show you a quick 5-minute makeup look that's Spring ready. If you're anything like me, you might have been deprived of the sun these past months and need add in some color. Not only is this quick, but gives you that natural and fresh look that says Spring to me.

While I'm not big on liquid foundation for everyday, I do love a pressed powder. My current favorite is by Portland brand, Alima Pure. It gives enough coverage for everyday and has nourishing rosehip in it. 

Nothing says awake like the eyes and I pay a little more attention here. W3ll People's Expressionist mascara gives your lashes a nice coat that still looks very natural. I'll usually do 2 coats for good measure. Then, I add their liquid eyeliner. Now for a natural makeup brand, I have to say I'm hooked on this eyeliner. The texture and brush make it so easy to apply. Does it stay on like a regular brand? No. It just becomes a tad faded if you wear it all day, but you'll still have eyeliner on. 

Now here's where you're going to fake that color! Wake up that Winter skin with some bronzer. This is another one of W3ll People's star products and it's not just me who agrees. Allure gave it the seal of approval. Beside having clean ingredients, I love that it's a loose powder allowing you to use as much of it as you need. Whether you're lighter or darker, you can always build up the color for the desired glow. 

I'm normally a lipstick gal, but recently picked up this new lipgloss by Kjaer Weis from Cos Bar and has made me fall back in love with lipglosses. It's not sticky and has just enough sheer color to punch up your lips. 

Hope this tutorial helps freshen up your look!

You know those days where you really put a little more effort into getting ready? Well, this is it. This is me stepping it up. I know, you're probably laughing. But any day that I actually curl my hair, I consider it me being so extra. Truthfully, I was meeting Jessica for coffee and some pictures. So in away I was getting all fancy for you ;) Every now and then we like to meet up for a good latte, chat about blog life and take some pictures. We ended up at a new spot that had a tasty matcha and the best brownie (yes, that was my breakfast). Anyway, this top seemed to be the perfect occasion for the day. I love how it's a little more interesting than your regular chambray shirt. It might have also been my justification for finally picking it up, but do I really need a reason? My philosophy is you can never have too many chambray shirts. Anyone else feel that way?

Last year's look here is one that incorporates another style that I can never have too many of--stripes. I just realized I wearing the same jeans from this post, too. Staple pieces, I tell ya. 

Thank you for linking up with us! Our picks are Ruth from My Little Nest and Cheryl from Cheryl Shops! Make sure to go give them some love, too!
