What's New in My Makeup Bag

1.30.2017

Happy Monday guys! Today I'm showing you a few of my latest beauty buys from the drugstore. Let me know if you guys want me to do a more in depth review on any of these products! Now let's take a look...

maybelline lipstick peach buff 540

♥ Maybelline lipstick in peach buff. I'm the kind of girl who prefers lip gloss over lipstick but I decided I would give this matte lipstick a try. I love nude lip colors and this one is so pretty!

L'Oreal voluminous eyelash primer

♥ L'oreal eyelash primer. If I could only wear one makeup product it would be mascara (or maybe concealer)! I love the look of long voluminous lashes so I've been trying out this primer. So far I really love it.

ardell individual lashes and lashtite adhesive

♥ Ardell inividual lashes and lashtite glue. Like I said before I love the look of long eyelashes so I bought some individual lashes along with some semi-permanent adhesive. I love how these look on!

Have you tried any of these products? Let me know down below! :)


Valentine's Day Outfit Idea #1

1.27.2017

bag (similar less than $50) // blush // lipsticks // heels // bodysuit // jeans

Good morning and happy Friday guys! Today I'm bringing to you look number one out of my series of valentines outfit ideas that I'm starting. This is just for fun as I love making collages but hopefully it will inspire you guys too! Let me know what you guys think down below! :)

This look is super easy! I found the most adorable bodysuit with ruffles and cut outs at the shoulder for the perfect flirty touch! I would wear this with a pair of dark wash jeans but you could wear this with almost anything.... think black skirt, black jeans, white jeans, etc. Then all you need is a cute pair of heels and a handbag to finish off your look! Btw, I am loving that gucci bag! Anyone else? I found a cheaper alternative here for you guys!

I'm in love with this basic beige satin button up. The best thing is that it was only $12.90! I love having neutrals tops like this one that I can pair with all my jeans (and shorts for spring!) and I can either dress up or down. You may recall from this post, but I'm obsessed with this material right now! As for my outfit, I loved pairing the top with these super distressed jeans I found at zara last year. I linked a couple of similar pairs down below for you guys to shop. The edgy biker details from my jacket tied in perfectly with the rips on my jeans. I chose to wear suede booties but a cool pair of sneakers would have worked for this look too!

Today I'm doing a quick roundup of my recent instagram posts.My username is @simplynancyblog in case you want to keep up with me on there! :)  These posts will be a great way for me to update you guys with what I've been up to and give you outfit details and what not. So let's begin!

similar jeans // sandals // bag // tshirt (favorite tee!)
Ripped white jeans, lace up sandals, & a pop of color on my toes! I recently bought these sandals from Target and I can't get over how cute they are...Obsessed! 

jeans (favorite black jean!) // sweater // jacket, similar (on sale) // sneakers
Comfy outfit for a chilly day. I seriously love these knit sweaters from h&m. They go perfectly with leggings. 

Perfect breakfast for when you wake up to a winter wonderland! Buttery croissant, strawberry smoothie, & nutella. 

Look for cool details on basic pieces to spice up your neutral outfits. The criss cross front on this top gives it an adorable touch!

I love how warm and cozy this jacket is! I was missing a beige jacket like this to brighten up my winter outfits.

Coffee shop dates & blog things. My go-to drink is a chai latte. I love making them at home too! 

Bomber Jacket Outfit #2

One of my favorite trends of 2017 is satin! I recently went shopping at forever 21 and saw it all throughout the store. I found this beautiful top in seafoam green (love it in mauve too!) and had to pick it up! I love the v-neckline and the crinkled material. I paired it with black jeans and taupe booties and I was good to go. My beige jacket was the final touch for an added cool-girl twist (and to keep me warm too)!

How do you guys like the satin trend? Yes or no?

I was shopping for a winter coat when this bomber jacket caught my eye. The color is so perfect for spring and it brightens up any dark outfit. It also keeps me super warm because the fabric is so thick and cozy. All of this make it the best jacket to help me transition from winter to spring! I thought  I have so many ideas on how to wear it... So stay tuned for more ways to style bomber jackets! :)

 These pictures are from last weekend when it snowed. I get so excited about snow days because it barely snows where I live! The snow is just so pretty and brightens everything up! Now that we have gotten our first snow I think I'm ready for spring! I know that's a few months ahead so, for now, I'll enjoy the spring-like weather we're having :) Talk to you guys soon <3

P.s. How do you like my glasses? This is the pair I ended up choosing when I asked for your help a few months ago.

In case you haven't noticed I love this jacket! I wear it seriously all the time and I think it shows by all the outfits I've posted on here of me wearing it. I don't want to bore you guys with the same jacket all the time so I'm going to change things up, at least here on the blog. The weather is also here to help me with that  because it's getting too cold to wear it as my only jacket. The first snow of the season is supposed to come tomorrow too. I am definitely excited for that! 

What do you guys think of this outfit?


Hello 2017

I'm starting off the year with an outfit post. On lazy days leggings are always a good choice. You can up your legging game by picking up a pair made with suede or leather. I picked mine up from Target last year. I wore one of my favorite sweaters from H&M. It's so comfortable - I wear it all the time. I have this in two colors. I bought it last spring but they have them in stores again right now in different colors. I love the taupe one... I think I might need to get it. I completed my outfit with sneakers and a leather jacket for a cooler look.
