Girl, Clean Your Brushes.

373E41F5-50C1-4596-AF88-DB449A6C349AHeyyy gorgeous! How are you today? I had a lovely 3-day weekend and ended up spending the majority of my time cleaning. While I was cleaning the house,  I also  finally cleaned all my make-up brushes and giiirrrrllll were they nasty!!! So I have decided to share my all time favorite make-up brush cleaner with y’all! Girl your mind is about to be blown away!

Truly I think we all have that dirty little secret that we don’t dare to admit! Yes even I’m guilty of not cleaning my makeup brushes enough! I know, how dare I commit this crime, but I mean who has the time to sit in the bathroom all day cleaning them?! Kudos to you if you have the time to do that, I commend you! For me, I am always headed somewhere, to do something, with someone. Or maybe something along those lines! I knew I needed to clean my brushes when the application of my makeup was not as “clean” as it typically is! So it was time again to bust out my all time favorite makeup brush cleaner. Are you ready?! Here we go! *Insert heart eyes*

|Cinema Secrets Makeup Brush Cleaner | MSRP $42 |

“This professional-quality brush cleaner is a makeup industry cult-favorite that can be used on both natural and synthetic fibers, and it doesn’t leave an oily residue. It cleans, conditions, and deodorizes brushes in one step.”

This baby is a cult favorite for a reason, its amazing! If you don’t have this, you need it. Trust me if your mom/boyfriend/aunt/grandma asks, it was definitely a need not a want. If you’ve been searching for a makeup brush cleaner that is not only affordable but also effective then oooooooh girl, this is going to be your jam! You can clean your brushes and immediately begin using them again after about 30 seconds of them drying all from the comfort of your bed! Crazy girl, I know! I was in shock too! Also,I love the vanilla scent to this cleaner but I will say it can be a little overpowering if you have a sensitive nose!

Well loves, this is my holy grail makeup brush cleaner and hopefully it becomes yours as well! I’ll talk to you girls soon!

Love always, Chloé Danielle

OOTD: T.J. Maxx

Heyyy gorgeous! Welcome to the blog. Today I am sharing my super comfy outfit of the day, T.J. Maxx edition. I have loved shopping at Marshalls and T.J. Maxx ever since I was little, and honestly I buy a lot of my pieces from these stores. It’s affordable fashion what more could you ask for? Alright ladies, let’s grab our pink drinks and get started!89F803C3-40B5-48CA-9705-7A3B6E9E4F88

90 Degree by Reflex Leggings

I have been LIVING in these leggings since buying my first pair! You can usually find them for about $15 at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. I purchased mine for $12 on sale. I love their leggings because they are so flexible. They also have great coverage, meaning you don’t have to worry about bending over!  Linked are the pair most similar to mine retailing for $29.99. 44866E98-7161-4286-99E3-2259C219DFA3

Calvin Klein Quarter Zip Hoodie

Girl I love Calvin Klein (not just because we share the same last name, and no we aren’t related a girl can dream though! I love how soft this sweatshirt is, but also the fact that its a quarter zip with a hood! Linked is one that I find the most similar and even on sale it’s more than the $29.99 I paid at T.J. Maxx!2B6A22AD-E252-48A2-82FE-B78F6A1C441E

New Balance Running Shoes

Let me start by saying these are some of the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever bought. I bought them for coaching since I am on hard wood all day and my feet don’t seem to hurt afterwards. I purchased these beauties for $39.99 at T.J. Maxx and of course they are cheaper than the newer version at $69.99! Which truly, that is still a good deal for tennis shoes this comfortable girl!3D758B54-1F10-4BE0-8CB1-469B767A0C25

Well my loves, that is my OOTD: T.J. Maxx! I hop you enjoyed it and feel inspired to hunt for some amazing deals! I will see you soon, hopefully at the shops!

Love always, Chloé Danielle!

Night-time Routine

Heyyyy girl! How’s it going today? I hope it is going fan-flipping-tastic! If you are new here, welcome and if you aren’t new, welcome back! Today I am sharing my night-time routine with you! I just started getting back into the swing of  having a night-time routine and I can already tell a difference!4d78ff0e-2d37-4646-88c1-be1c015d6f31

Without further ado, grab your pink drink and let’s get started!

Step 1

I start my taking my make-up off with a make-up remover wipe. My all time favorite are from Target and they are only $2.49. Let me say it louder for the people in the back… THEY ARE ONLY $2.49. I know I seriously can’t believe it either! I love these because they are also the ‘calming’ towelettes.

b1473eb0-291a-4bc7-ae2b-96df06692e9c

Step 2

Once I have the majority of my make-up  wiped off, I reach for my Clarisonic. I have the Clarisonic Mia2 (linked is the newest version) and I absolutely love it! When I am using my Clarisonic, my skin looks flawless. I don’t struggle with texture on the skin or dry patches when I am regularly using my Clarisonic.

4db8be2a-2ddd-46fb-a975-d4e2f864ab5c

Step 3

Add in your favorite facial cleanser. Personally I have been using the Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cleanser. This product really helps my dry skin come back to life and leaves it as soft as a baby’s bum.

bc5bd1f6-8e51-4d66-a7b3-9ddc5cd8e91c

Step 4

After cleansing my face I take a quarter size amount of my FIRMx Peeling Gel Exfoliant. This is also from Peter Thomas Roth. This is my favorite exfoliant because it is not abrasive, it is so gentle on the skin. This has been the only exfoliant I am able to use daily.

d6f737fa-2bad-4915-bc07-f354eb8d03c1

Step 5

Take a clean cotton pad and splash a little bit of the Fresh Rose Deep-Hydration Facial Toner on it. Rub across your face to help hydrate and soften your skin. This helps to really cleanse your skin of impurities like blackheads and pores. Love this brand for more sensitive skin.

bee8b19f-a918-4c69-a59f-d0ffaa08dc66

Step 6

My skin has been more dry than normal this Winter so I have been packing on the moisture. I have been finishing up my night-time routine with my Josie Maran Argan Oil Light. I specifically chose the Light over the regular because of how much faster it absorbs into the skin. Perfect before bed time!

5301fc48-9e8c-4716-b5c0-05f9678ccaea

After I finish with my argan oil light I head to bed. I don’t know about you, but this girl needs her beauty sleep! I hope you enjoyed reading about my night-time routine. I will try to update this as the seasons change. Also if you would like to see my morning routine let me know!

Love always, Chloé Danielle

Sephora Haul

876632dc-2c3a-4676-9433-a7d57293e70eHello love and welcome back to my blog! My name is Chloé Danielle in case you are new here, and I am so excited that you’ve decided to join me today. Now, it is no secret that I absolutely love make-up! I just think it is so much fun to just sit down and play with all the make-up I own. Sometimes I look like a kindergartener did my make-up and other times I look like I am ready to shoot the cover of Vogue. I mean, a girl can dream right? Looking back on all of my blog posts I couldn’t believe that I have never done a “Sephora Haul”! I mean I could live at Sephora I know where everything is located inside my local store! It is finally time to sit down and share my recent purchases with all of you! *Insert heart eyes*

I recently shared my ride-or-die make-up products with you, well forget about that post today! *Insert eye roll* I know, I am going against my favorite makeup products, but make-up is all about trying new things out, right? So I purchased 3 new foundations, a new setting powder, and even new mascara among other things of course!! Also don’t worry, not all of these were purchased at the same time! (a girl can wish though)

Foundations

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation $47

3925fac2-9ea1-4c62-bee3-3b8ddaa0d34dA foundation with buildable coverage for a finish that enhances the look of skin, without masking the natural complexion.”

Coverage/Finish: Medium/Natural

Skin Type: Normal and Dry

This has been my weekend foundation that I put on before volleyball practice/tournaments. I just love that natural look that still has some nice coverage!

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation $43

e73f565d-b778-4de7-8aa9-33ac17a47835A foundation stick with long-lasting, invisible coverage for touch-ups and contouring, plus all the benefits of award-winning Ultra HD Liquid Foundation.”

Coverage/Finish: Full / Natural

Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily

I have worn this twice since purchasing and I can definitely say it’s a win for me!

Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation Fluid $45

073cc760-aefb-4013-910c-f36aaf59d739“A revolutionary medium-to-full coverage skin care foundation fluid powered by 100 percent pure argan oil and nutrient-rich pigments for vibrant, glowing skin.”

“The breathable, lightweight, medium-to-full coverage formula features a powerful blend of moisture-enhancing ingredients that help soothe, smooth, and restore skin’s luminosity.”

“This product is dermatologist tested and clinically proven to hydrate and smooth even the most sensitive skin.”

This has been my go to recently, because of how dry my skin has been! It’s amazing how radiant and luminous my skin looks when I’m wearing this foundation!

Setting Powder

Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder $35

c22572ec-ee7f-4ad3-a4e3-fd057a44a431“An ultra-translucent, loose powder that sets makeup for all-day wear while imparting a soft-focus, airbrushed finish.”

I have been LOVING this setting powder simply because it is TALC free and it’s not matte! *Insert Heart Eyes*

Lippies

NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip balm $28

 “A hydrating lip balm with a subtle hint of color and a radiant finish in the universally flattering Orgasm shade.”

I love the Sheerness of this lip balm and how moisturizing it actually is! I would definitely recommend this!f5a85ae0-b0b5-498b-96a3-498e4b846d79

NARS Lip gloss

“A moisturizing lip gloss for subtle, everyday glamour, enriched with nourishing ingredients for long-lasting, comfortable wear and a luminous shine.”

I love the formula of NARS lip gloss because it isn’t sticky! I haven’t been able to put this down since purchasing it! *Insert heart eyes*. If you love the “Orgasm” blush you are going to LOVE their “Orgasm” lipgloss!

BITE Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick

98ecc3a0-9850-4c84-84eb-594e46679208“A collection of high-impact lipsticks in dimensional shades that have been handcrafted to deliver extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear.”

Ladies the formula of this lipstick is AMAZING. I could rave about it all day long! I have so many different shades. My recent pick up included the shade “Verbena” which is a rosy terracotta shade.

Well I am sad to say this, but that is all for my Sephora Haul today! I have been super pleased with my purchases so far! I usually have one item I don’t LOVE but this time around I have been loving everything! I also never knew how much I loved foundation! haha

I’ll catch you in the next blog post girly!

Love always, Chloé Danielle

 

DIY Wreath

Hello Love and welcome back to the blog! How are you today? I know it’s Monday, but it’s a new week with new goals! I am so excited to share today’s blog post! Upon getting a home and having some more bills on our plate Justin and I are really buckling down on how much we are spending these days. So with wanting to save some money I pulled out my crafty side and got to work. Below are all the details on how to make this adorable wreath. Enjoy!

Alright ladies and gents, besides the “burlap” ribbon this project only cost me $5 to make. Yes you heard me right, it only cost me $5 to make, and I have already made 2 of these. They are extremely easy to make and it truly looks like you bought them! Below are my 6 easy steps to making my Valentine’s Day Wreath.

  • Head to your local dollar store and choose the flowers you would like for your wreath. Also head down the Arts and Crafts aisle to pick up a 3-d foam circular wreath.

  • Once you get back home start by cutting off all the flowers. Try to cut them a tad closer to the flower as you will be sticking the stems into the foam wreath.

  • Once you cut all the flowers, decide what pattern you want. Start poking them into the foam to create your pattern.

That is it my loves! It was that simple to make this wreath! Of course you can use any flowers and ribbon that you choose. I specifically made mine for Valentine’s day, and I also plan to make one for St. Patrick’s Day.

Alright that is it for my DIY wreath! I truly hope you found this fun and exciting! If you would like to see some more of my current DIY projects let me know by leaving a comment below!

Ride-Or-Die Make-up Products

Hey sugar, Welcome back to the blog! Now if you know me, you probably know how much I LOVE make-up! I am pretty much obsessed and can be talked into “needing” just about anything. I truly don’t think there is one product I love more than the other. I always start my make-up routine saying “today will be a natural day”, and then I just have to add bronzer. Now since I put bronzer on I might as well add some blush. Well now I have to put highlighter on to bring it all together! You see where I am going? Before I even realize it, I am pretty much full glam with a full face of make-up! Today I thought it would be fun to walk you through a typical “full-face” of make-up with my ride-or-die products! So let me stop rambling, and let’s get started!!Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Foundation: Too Faced Born This Way $39

Look if James Charles and Auntie Jackie Aina are using this foundation, count me in! James and Jackie are two of my favorite make-up gurus and once I found out they were both using this foundation…. well I just had to have it. I love that this foundation is medium to full coverage because not everyone wants full coverage. Now this is also a matte foundation, with that being said I still love it!! I just have to make sure that my skin is moisturized before applying.Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Concealer: Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer $29

Man-oh-man was that a mouthful! Alright ladies and gents I know that this is pricey for a concealer. Trust me I was hesitant too, but it will last you soooo much longer! Seriously I am still on my first one that I purchased and getting ready to buy another one! I went through my foundation before needing more of this bad boy! I truly believe its the best bang for your buck! Plus it’s full coverage!Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Setting Powder: Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder: $33

I am not going to tell you to run out and buy this right now, because I am so-so on it. To be honest I already have my sights set on another setting powder! In no way am I saying this setting powder is horrible because it’s not, it just doesn’t work the best with my dry skin. I prefer this over the Laura Mercier Setting Powder because it is more fine, so for me it doesn’t stick to my dry spots. If you have dry skin like me I would recommend the Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder, ($35) because it is Talc-free. Talcum as a powder helps to absorb moisture like oil. So when you don’t have oily skin it tends to make you look bone dry!

Contour: KatVonD Shade & Light Face Contour Palette $49

James Charles did again, he got me hooked on an amazing contour palette. Since I purchased this palette I have yet to use another for contouring. It just has the perfect shades in it for my (and many others) skin tone! Honestly this is an amazing buy, especially since you can now buy the refill shades for it!Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Blush: Laura Geller Baked Blush-n-Brighten $28

I remember I first purchased her blush when ULTA Beauty had their 21 days of Beauty event. I have the shade Peach Delight (vibrant pink flecked w/ peach shimmer) and that slight shimmer made me fall in love! This is perfect for those girls that want a little bit of glow without having to put on highlighter. OR if you are like me…. it makes the  shimmer base before applying your highlight. I truly don’t think anyone could be disappointed when purchasing this blush! I know I wasn’t.Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade

This is my holy grail! Seriously since I started doing my eyebrows in 2014 I haven’t used any other product! I could probably write an entire book on why I love this product so much! I will say it’s not for everyone, and I never recommend this to beginners (wish someone told me when I started) because you can tend to look like a clown. For me now, I love it! Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Bronzer: Lorac TANtalizer Highlighter and Matte Bronzer Duo $33

I love this bronzer! Truly it mixes so well with my contour and blush! Unfortunately I could do without the highlighter. Just the smallest amount of this bronzer does the trick which means more bang for your buck!

Eyelashes: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Ooohhh baby is this mascara amazing! It’s hands down my favorite formula with the most amazing brush! I do try other mascaras when I get them in subscription boxes, but this is still my tried-and-true!Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

As for highlighters I can’t choose just one! I have so many favorites it’s ridiculous! More recently I have been loving the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amerezy Highlighter though!

Well my loves, those are my ride-or-die make-up products that I use daily. What are some of your favorite make-up products?!

Love always, Chloé Danielle

 

Read. Read. Read.

Hello gorgeous! I can’t believe we haven’t talked since last year! Even more so I can’t believe we made it to 2019. I hope you all had a fun and safe holiday! Justin and I were in bed cuddling our fur babies until the ball dropped. Once it dropped the TV was turned off and to bed we went. I know we act like an old couple sometimes! Anyways, enough getting side tracked. Today I wanted to share some of the books I intend on reading this year. Remember one of my New Years Resolutions is to read at least one book a month! I bought these books last year and intended on reading them, then, but life happens. You will probably recognize a majority of these books as they are all fairly popular.

Becoming by Michelle Obama

Published November 2018, I knew right away I wanted this book. Former First Lady Michelle Obama writes about finding her voice, her time in the White House, her health campaign, and her role as a mother. For me personally, Michelle is an amazing woman to look up to. She is strong, witty, and beautiful. I could not be more excited to read this 400 page book. It might just be the first book I dive into as well. Wish me luck!

This Will Only Hurt a Little by Busy Phillips

Published October 2018, I kept seeing this bright pink cover in the Target isle. It drew me in and as I read what the book was about I knew I needed it. The famous Busy Phillips memoir could not be more honest and real, “every unique story seems to have an entry point for everyone to feel like they too have been “that girl.”” She’s relatable and that is what I need. Sometimes suffering from anxiety and depression you feel like you are on the outside of it all. That is why I chose this book. Excerpt taken from https://www.hypable.com/this-will-only-hurt-a-little-book-review-busy-philipps/

Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis

Published February 2018, this book has quickly become a best-selling, self-help book. This is the one book I have already read, and I want to read it again. I first purchased this book right after realizing I needed some help with my anxiety and depression. You can quote every single line out of this book it’s that good. I want to re-read it to really focus on the words and hear them. “The truth? You, and only you, are ultimately responsible for who you become and how happy you are. That’s the takeaway.”   I’m also excited because in March she is releasing a new book called ‘Girl, Stop Apologizing’ and I already know I need this book.

The Magnolia Story by Chip & Joanna Gaines

Published October 2016, I am just now getting the book. You know I truly think I was living under a rock when this came out, because I am obsessed with Chip and Jo. We watch HGTV all day in the office and when Fixer Upper comes on gooooodbye focus! Honestly I love them, and I want everything in their Hearth and Homes collection too! When I finally heard about this book I ran to Target and snatched it up! I am so excited to finally read their story. I know a lot of their background from the show, but now I’ll know it all.

You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero

Published April 2013, this bright yellow cover caught my eye in the Target isle. As soon as I read the title of the book it instantly put in my shopping cart. *Ooops, shoulder shrug* This is another self-help book I purchased right after admitting I needed help. “Identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors that stop you from getting what you want, Create a life you totally love. And create it NOW, Make some damn money already. The kind you’ve never made before.” They say by the end of reading this book you’ll understand why you are how you are, how to love what you can’t change, how to change what you don’t love. Now, I don’t know about you, but I could use all of that advice.

Well these are some of the books I will be reading throughout the year. Have you read any of these yourself? Did you like them? Let me know! Also, let me know what some of your favorite books are. I would love to check them out!

Resolutions.

62708CD7-B802-4386-B1CD-8C389C095519I hope you all had an amazing Christmas with your loved ones, I know I did. Honestly I still can’t believe that Christmas already came and went, it’s crazy! With the new year just around the corner I wanted to share my New Years Resolutions with all of you, that way hopefully someone helps hold me responsible!

  1. GYM. GYM. GYM. I was doing so well going to the gym this year until about August. I was going 2-3 times a week with some of my girl friends and feeling great about myself. In 2019 I want to not only get back into shape, but I want to be in the best shape possible. I know if I set my mind to it, I will kick the gym’s ass, (or maybe it will kick mine) or at least something like that.
  2. READ. READ. READ. I have bought so many amazing books this year, (Becoming, Girl Wash Your Face, The Magnolia Story… etc.) that I haven’t had the chance to read them all. So in 2019 I want to at least read a book a month.
  3. PAY OFF & PAY DOWN BILLS. This is why I never wanted to grow up, bills. In 2019 I have big plans to pay off some of my credit cards. I am planning to pay off at least 2 of them and pay down on another one. I also have plans to pay down my Student Loans and my Car Loan because let’s be honest there is no way I am completely paying off my car for a few more years.
  4. HOME. In 2019 Justin and I will officially have our own home! While we are both extremely excited about this next step, we are also nervous. We have plans to get a new roof this coming Spring of 2019. We also want to either re-finish or replace our flooring in the house. Honestly, we are just excited to have a place to call Home with our little family.
  5. FURTHER MY EDUCATION. I am so excited to be furthering my education in 2019. Next year I plan on taking the Series 7 exam (The Series 7 exam, also known as the General Securities Representative Exam (GSRE), is a test for registered representatives. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) administers the exam. In the United States, stockbrokers take this test to get a license to trade.) and I could not be more excited! My dream job since I was in the 7th grade was to work with stocks and the stock market and its slowly but surely coming true. While I have A LOT of studying to do in preparation for the exam, I could not be more excited and thankful that my job pays for furthering our education. Thanks Raymond James.
  6. BLOG. BLOG. BLOG. What kind of Blogger would I be if I did not want to blog? I want to expand my blog as much as I possibly can in 2019. I’ve also thought about changing the name to simply just ‘Chloé Danielle’ as I plan to write more personable blog posts. What do you guys think about that?

Those are my New Years Resolutions for 2019 and I am ready to conquer them! What are some of your New Years Resolutions for 2019? Have you thought of them yet? If you have let me know by leaving a comment, I would love to know your goals for the upcoming year!!

Love always, Chloé DanielleG
