I’ve found the perfect year round everyday nail color. It’s a pinkish clear hue by Essie called Sugar Daddy. I LOVE this color. It’s almost clear but very light pink at the same time. It basically goes with everything and makes your nails look super healthy. I’m on my 2nd bottle and I never go through nail polish that fast. I was explaining it to a friend as the perfect color for everyone, from the color enthusiasts to the non polish wearing. It compliments all skin tones as well. I recommend you pick a bottle up to add to your collection!
Essie sugar daddy $9
I can’t get enough of Bitter Buddhist, a milky greyish green shade from Smith & Cult. I first spotted this shade on Eva Chen when I saw this picture on her Instagram and I went on a HUNT for it. I received it recently and LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! It is different from any green I’ve seen and is perfect for Spring and Summer. I will be living in this color!!!!! Shop this gorgeous green below.
Smith & Cult ‘Bitter Buddhist’ $18
I also came across this dupe at Ulta for $8 if you’re on a budget. I swatched it at the store and it’s totally the same.
Spring has finally sprung and it’s time to paint your nails accordingly. Light and bright hues are perfect for these upcoming warm months. Below are some of my favorite Spring mani shades for you to shop. Have a great day.
As many of you who follow me on Instagram already know…..I’m crazy for cobalt!!!!!!! I love the beautifully rich hue and I’ve been wearing my favorite cobalt accessories with everything!

Happy New Year!!!!!! 2013 was a phenomenal year! Before I get too into this post, I would first like to say thank you to everyone that has supported this blog of mine since the beginning. If you’re new to it, I also want to thank you for stopping by! I am so grateful to you all!!! XO- Journey
Every year Pantone also known as the authority on color announces the “color of the year” and this year it’s a lovely purplish/fuschia hue they call Radiant Orchid.
As with any trend, a great way to get involved is to start with makeup. Everyone can afford a lipstick or a nail polish and it’s not as risky as wearing a dress or a coat in that hue if you’re not that into color. Below are some fun makeup products to shop that will get you right into this trend!
Side note: This color is flattering on all skin tones!
My favorite lipstick $4.99 I can’t get enough of this lipstick!
Eyeliner $19 I own so many of these Urban Decay 24/7 eye liners and they are some of the BEST on the market. They really do last 24 hours and are highly pigmented.
Shadow pot$19 While we’re on the subject of pigment, Urban Decay has the most pigmented shadows EVER! They are by far my favorite eyeshadow brand!
Shadow palette$8 Affordable alternative. NYX products provide great bang for your buck! I love their shadows and REALLY love all of their lip products!
Nail Polish$8 Not into”color” on your face? Rock it on your nails!!!!!
