My go-tos

Sometimes you run late, sometimes you are too tired to care, sometimes the unexpected happens, etc. When it does, what do you do?

If I had to guess, I'd say you have some go-tos. Your stash of secret products that can make you feel confident and beautiful in less than 5 minutes. Maybe it is a lipstick that makes your face glow. Maybe it's a pair of shoes that make you feel fierce. Or maybe it's mascara that gives you falsies flare.

Whatever your go-tos are, you know how important it is to have them on standby. Well, I'm no different. I have some items that work little miracles in my life more often than I care to admit. Today, I'm sharing them with you because that's just what girlfriends do! And, I'm secretly hoping you'll share your go-tos and give me ideas on items to add to my stash!

MAC Cremesheen in Speak Louder - This lipstick gives me an instant pick-me-up. It was my very first MAC lipstick. Years later, this shade is still my favorite. When I don't have time to pull myself 100% together, this little baby finishes the job for me. I love wearing it to work. It makes me feel super professional, in a fun way. If that makes any sense!

E.L.F. Tone Correcting Powder - This is like sleep in a compact. When I haven't gotten the recommended 8 hours, had to much to drink the night before, or whatever, this powder takes me from hot mess to just plain hot! I love it on my t-zone and under my eyes. The best part? It's only $3!

Bella Luce Earrings - These add a little bling on days when I don't feel so blingy. I pop these little jewels in my ears and instantly feel a little more glam. Gotta love that!

Bare Minerals Glee All Over Face Color - I cannot say enough good things about this stuff! It's like it adds life to my face. On weekends, dust this on my cheekbones, down my nose, and across my forehead. After I sweep a little mascara on, that's all I need! It's a quick and easy way to liven up your face.

MAC Opulash - This is hands down the best mascara I've ever used. It adds volume and length. Seriously, I don't even walk to the mailbox without a coat of this on my lashes. It's that good. Nothing can take me from drab to fab like this mascara. I die for it!

So there you have it, my go-tos. I'd love to hear what you can't live without!



  1. I love that lipstick! Bright pinks are the best :)

  2. I have some diamond studs that always make me feel a little more put together :) that, and some Dior mascara so I don't look completely dead.

  3. Love this. And I NEED those earrings.
