This week, I am doing a three part series! I will be posting today, Thursday, and again next Sunday! I haven’t been posting lately due to final exams, so I do apologize for my absence. This three part series will get me back into the blogging spirit! I have always known about Glossier, but never thought to purchase any of their products since I don’t typically wear makeup. I started doing a bit more research on the brand and found that they would be the perfect brand to start out with. Glossier makeup supports the “no makeup, makeup” look, meaning very natural. Instead of covering everything up with foundation and putting on a whole new face, it simply enhances my features more naturally. I did quite a bit of damage, enough to split this post up into a three part series, face, lips, and eyes. I went live and did an unboxing of all these products on my Instagram, and there were multiple requests for a blog post. I hope you enjoy my review of Glossier’s “face” products.

GLOSSIER’S STRETCH CONCEALERb68fea0d-fddb-4dcc-83e8-8e292787849e

I love this product! The first time I tried it out I did not like it, I didn’t use enough and barely blended it in causing a very unnatural and strange looking under-eye situation. I learned that if you use the proper amount and blend properly, this concealer will be your best friend. You can’t tell you are wearing it at all. It simply looks like you have naturally light under-eye circles, which is exactly what I was looking for. This product does not fully erase under-eye circles like many high coverage concealers on the market. I didn’t want full coverage, so this concealer was perfect for me. If you like the natural look, then this is the concealer for you!

GLOSSIER CLOUD PAINT

PUFF 41b4abd6-fd81-4c76-a7c4-1051465d490aI have naturally red cheeks, which I am sure you can tell from other photos of me. This means I shouldn’t wear a ton of blush. When using Puff, I use the smallest amount. The amount will differ per person, but if I put the recommended amount on, I look like a clown. Other than the figuring out the appropriate amount, the product is beautifully pigmented and blends perfectly.  I would recommend this product.  I prefer this blush to any other powder blushes since I find this looks much more natural and feels nicer on the skin.

DUSKa54f9582-b664-4523-97c1-fa82a310e2caI use Dusk as both a bronzer and for contour. I blend it on my forehead into my hairline and underneath my cheek bones. It adds really nice dimension and color to my face. I really enjoy this product and since you can get both of these products in the Cloud Paint duo, I think they work as a great team!

I did not get a ton of products for “face”, but nonetheless I hope you were able to take something from this post and are excited for the next ones. I would repurchase both  of these products especially the concealer for I love how naturally it improves my dark circles. The Cloud paints will be another re-purchase, although I don’t think I will need to for a while since I use so little. Thank you for reading this post and I hope you enjoyed it! Let me know what you think in the comments below, I always respond! Enjoy the rest of your week and make sure to check back in on Thursday for the next post!

I put a poll on my Instagram to see if a finals post was wanted, and it got a very positive reaction. So, here it is, how to survive finals. I know this may be late for some of you, but ironically, this post is going up late because of my final exams. I have exams the second and third weeks of June. I am graduating from middle school in 2 weeks, so I am almost done! This year I am taking two Regents (state tests), the FLACS (foreign language test), and two other finals! Because of this, I am spending a lot of time preparing. I wanted to share my routine of how to “survive” and pass exams.

  1. First, start studying at least a week or two in advance. I tried my best to start about 3 weeks ahead, but timing is different for everyone. I find that a studying technique that works for me is repetition. So, in order to know something well enough to take a test on it, I have to review, review, review. This is what works for me, but adjust your studying depending on what works for you.
  2. Next, organize your notes. I would recommend that you should get your notes together by unit since that makes it easier to study.
  3. Once you have everything organized, write it down. I recommend getting a planner to organize and create a plan. I take the units and divide them up by days to see how many days I have to study each unit. This is hard to explain, but let me give an example. If I learned 10 units in Social Studies this year and I start studying 3 weeks in advance, that gives me about 2 days for each unit. By the time the test comes, you will have reviewed all the topics covered during the school year (even stuff you learned in September). Plus, on weekends you can go over the units you reviewed that week.
  4. Once you are done planning, time to study. Each day, do what you wrote in your planner. If you planned it out right, then you should be all set once your finals arrive!  Of course, you might need to adjust for the difficulty of different units.

I know this was a shorter post, but I thought I would share what I do to prepare for finals. Most of this is pretty straight forward and I know it isn’t anything crazy, but I hope you found something that will help you study. I thought I would end this post by wishing you good luck on all your finals! Remember, you are almost done and summer is just around the corner!

This is an older post that I just found and I still thought you might enjoy it so I decided to post it!

I went to DŌ! I have been wanting to try their cookie dough for a long time, and I finally got the chance. You may have seen them on Instagram. If you haven’t heard of DŌ, its a cute “restaurant” in Manhattan that makes edible cookie dough and ice cream. It is so cute and super Instagrammable. I bought a cup with two flavors. I chose “sweet and salty” and “unicorn”. They were both delicious, but really sweet, so I could only have a few bites at a time. I went with a friend and she got unicorn too, so they looked super cute together. I highly recommend going if you ever get the chance to go. Enjoy the pictures because they describe the experience best!

Thank you so much for reading this week’s posts! I am so sorry the quality of the pictures is so bad. The only camera I have is the one on my iPhone. I will hopefully get a camera soon! Make sure to come back next week for another blog post! – Suki <3

T-Shirt Collection

I have a lot of t-shirts. I wear t-shirts almost every day of the year. Since I live in New York, we have hot summers and cold winters. I wear t-shirts when its hot and when its cold. I am trying to change it up this summer with different pieces, but for now, here are some of my t-shirts. Most of the shirts are basic, simple ones you have probably seen before, but others are more unique. I hope you enjoy my t-shirt collection.

I wore these all the same way, but there are much more interesting ways to pair these. Thank you so much for reading this week’s post! I hope you liked it and is getting you excited for summer!

I thought I would do another favorites post since they were highly requested on my Instagram. Today, I thought I would share my favorite Netflix shows to binge.

Starting with the best, The Office. The Office is and will always be my favorite show! It is the funniest tv show I have ever watched. If you have not tried this show out yet, it is a MUST WATCH!

Next is End of the F*cking World. I wasn’t so sure about this one when I first started it, but it got so good and by the end I could not stop watching.

Parks and Rec is another funny classic. I like this one and I think it can be so incredibly funny. If you like The Office, then you will definitely like this.

Girlmore Girls is a show that I am currently watching and I am really enjoying it. It can be funny and I have fallen in love with the characters.

Stranger Things is another one of my favorites. I just think it is really, really good. The soundtrack is also really great since the show is based in the 80’s. If you haven’t watched Stranger Things yet, then I really think you should.

Finally, Riverdale. Riverdale is also really good. Although, not on purpose, I can find the characters funny and since it is a mystery, I always want more. I can’t wait till the next season comes out on Netflix!
