Y’all. One of my biggest insecurities is the fact that I have skin that is oiler than normal [at least in my opinion]. I have tried all kinds of things in attempt to improve on this issue, but never had much luck… Until now! I finally found a product that I think is worthy of sharing with y’all:
Neutrogena Shine Control Primer
I spent $12.99 on this product. And I’m definitely not one to over spend on products that I’m only hoping will work out. But Neutrogena has yet to let me down, and that hasn’t changed. A little bit really goes a long way. I have a feeling this will last me a while; which I love.
So this primer has a rice protein technology in it that absorbs all the extra oil on your skin without being gross or greasy, as well as minimizes the look of pores. On top of that, it makes your makeup stay put longer [which I can vouch for]. I mean honestly. How much better does it get than that? And for only $12.99.
Any questions that are holding you back from purchasing it? Ask me! If I can answer, I definitely will.
I LOVE TARGET
I mean, who doesn’t?
What gets even better is that I think I might love Target even MORE now. Yes, you read that right. MORE. Check out some of the awesome deals I found at Target today. I still can’t even believe it myself!
Cheetah print loafers: $20
Black sandals: $14
Pink and gray
bowling shoes: $6
And yes, you did read that correctly. That was not a typo.
I bought what I am calling bowling shoes for only SIX DOLLARS.
By some luck of the draw, they were actually my size. I still can’t even believe it!
Next comes this precious little pink porcelain flower that I found for only $8. It has a few chips, but nothing that is super obvious. I decided it was worth the small investment.
And finally, if you didn’t see from my last post. This $17 three shelf bookcase was an amazing steal and even more worth the price than this adorable flower. I honestly felt like I was stealing from Target by only paying $17. I swear, those shelves last for years and are so little maintenance, and dare I say, cute?
So this morning my happiness with the outfit I ended up wearing to run errands was a lot closer to the dissatisfied side of the spectrum. Basically all morning I internally judged myself for what I had decided to wear as I shopped around for shelving for my bedroom.
But the weirdest thing happened. I had decided to assemble the $17 three shelf bookcase I had bought from Target (what a steal, might I add), which resulted in putting my hair up in a messy bun to keep it out of my face while I worked. Here’s where the weirdness occurred. I suddenly was in love with my outfit. I don’t know what happened or why that worked. But it did. I wonder if it had something to do with showing off more of the details on my shirt, which I absolutely adore, or simply because my hair was out of my face and my pearls were on full display.
Magenta and White Shirt: Banana Republic || Black Shorts: Gap || Watch: Fossil
Naturally this put me in a great mood so I completed my shelf and started adding some things to the shelves.
And so everyone knows, I’m working on an awesome post about the top five bloggers I find to be most inspiring for myself. Be sure to look for that later in this week! Hopefully sooner rather than later. I want it to be perfect and perfection takes more time than I wish it did.

I’m currently on the way to Houston Methodist Hospital where my grandmother is being admitted into the ER for a heart valve issue. Which leads me to my question: what do you wear to visit someone in the hospital?
I thought, of course, something with a little color to be cheerful but not completely obnoxious and overstated. What better way to dim the brightness from these shorts than with a chambray button-up shirt? Agreed? Agreed. I also didn’t wear too much jewelry. And especially nothing too sparkly. I hope this suffices!
Sorry this has been so short but I am in love with these pink patterned shorts and I had to share them with you!
