November 2016 Favorites

Hi everyone! It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I can’t believe we’re already in December. So much has happened since my last post… which is why I haven’t been able to sit down and write anything. Where do I even begin?! We elected a new president. That very same day, I got a new car. I’ve also been working a lot; I think I’ve only had two whole days off this last month. Between work and trying to keep a social life, I haven’t been able to relax or focus on myself. But I’m here now and finally sharing my November 2016 favorites with all of you! Let’s get started.

Dat $tick Remix

I know I briefly talked about Asian hip-hop in my September 2016 favorites but I’m gonna bring it up again because I just can’t get enough of it. Rich Chigga is a name you should remember because he’s gonna be huge in 2017. He’s a 17-year-old rapper from Indonesia who learned English by watching rap videos. At first, I couldn’t take him seriously… I don’t think anyone else could. In a reaction video to Rich Chigga’s song, “Dat $tick,” Ghostface Killah jokingly said he’d do a song with him. And then he actually joined in for the remix of “Dat $tick.” Talk about goals right there! The remix goes so hard, I feel like a bad ass whenever I play it in my car.

BMW 525i

November 2016 Favorites // BMW 525i

Speaking of my car… I finally got a new one! I’ve been driving a 1995 Camry for a few years now and although it’s been very reliable in getting me to my destinations, it finally broke down on me. I was overdue for an upgrade. Since I finally graduated and started working two jobs, I figured I might as well treat myself to something nice. And when the opportunity came, I took it. With the help of my supportive family, I got a BMW 525i. It’s my new baby and I love it!

Rimmel London Kate Sculpting Palette

Mini Makeup Haul // Rimmel Kate Sculpting Palette

In a recent mini makeup haul, I impulsively purchased Rimmel London’s Kate Sculpting Palette because it was on sale. It works quite well for a drugstore palette. There are only three shades to choose from but I felt that it matched my skin well enough. I plan on wearing it for everyday looks like when I’m in the office or running errands. You can read my full length product review over at On the Edge. Yes, that was a shameless plug. 😏

Vino and Friends

November 2016 Favorites // Vino and Friends

Just like any other basic girl out there, I love having brunch with my friends… or at least I try to do brunch with them. There’s a local spot in my town called Vino and Friends that offers bottomless mimosas with brunch on Saturday and Sunday. I usually work Sundays mornings so we went for Saturday brunch. I love the whole atmosphere of Vino & Friends. It’s basically a wine bar that serves a variety of food. Their eggs benedict aren’t the best but you can’t beat $10 bottomless mimosas! I’ll definitely be going back to try their other meals.

Sephora Fall 2016 VIB Sale

November 2016 Favorites // Sephora Fall 2016 VIB Sale

Sephora had their annual VIB sale back in November and I created a wishlist for it. There were some products I needed to restock on while others were holy grail products I have yet to get my hands on. While comparing my purchase to my wishlist, I pretty much stuck to what I had in mind. The only thing I didn’t get was the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume and the BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Splits Shimmering Skin Perfector Mineral Blush Duo, which I’m hoping to get during Christmas. *hint hint* If not, I’m just going to use a discount code to get them.

That’s it for my November 2016 favorites. I know I haven’t been as active as I’d like to be but I have plans to make this blog even better. Thanks for sticking around. 💕
