Lately I've been talking a lot about my love for neutrals and that includes makeup as well! I love neutral eyeshadows the most since I can wear them on on an everyday basis and they're versatile enough to wear for special occasions too. That's why I was so happy to receive the latest Marc Jacobs voxbox from Influenster which included the Eye-Conic eyeshadow palette in "Glambition". If you want to receive free full-size makeup products from Influenster, then just sign up here and connect your Facebook account.


There are 6 eyeshadow palettes in total from the new Eye-Conic collection and go for $49 at Sephora. The Glambition palette has 7 eyeshadows with both warm and cool tones along with different formulas which is described as matte velvet, shimmering satin, sparkling silk, and metallic lame. The eyeshadows are inspired by previous runway looks and the layering that Marc Jacobs is known for.


From left to right, the colors are She Was (cream satin), Infamous (warm matte coffee color), Known For (metallic warm bronze), Seeking (matte light brown), The Most (shimmery peach), Over The Top (matte chocolate brown), and Glamour (black with pink and gold shimmer).

Even though I have plenty of other neutral palettes, this one is quite unique with shades such as Infamous since it's almost a pinky-brown and would look perfect as a crease color. Also I was pleasantly surprised with Glamour cause I was expecting just another matte black eyeshadow but this one had pink and gold shimmer which you never really see included in palettes and is quite a unique combination.


As for the quality of eyeshadows, they're super creamy for a powder eyeshadow and feels lightweight yet you have plenty of control when applying it to your lids since it doesn't go all over the lid like a chalky eyeshadow would. I applied these shadows without any primer underneath and they're super pigmented as well. They did start to fade after 5 hours but I think that's normal and expected. Also can we talk about the packaging? I love the sleek design and the wide mirror which makes it easy to see your eyes and re-apply throughout the day. The silver button makes it easy to open and close the palette and despite there being 7 eyeshadows in there, it's super compact and doesn't take up much room in your purse.


Overall, I'm impressed with this palette and the Marc Jacobs line in general (I also tried their Coconut Glow Highlighter a few months back and it's holy grail material!) and can't wait to try more products from them.

Dress: Wayf // Bag: Poolside Bags // Shoes: Steve Madden, sold out // Sunglasses: Dior "Origins" // Lips: Bobbi Brown Art Stick in "Rich Nude" 



After an exhausting week in retail last week, I was pleasantly surprised to find this new bag that I ordered on my doorstep. While I've been seeing the straw bag trend everywhere, I just couldn't decide on one straw bag to invest in for the summer until I saw this one. The quality is ridiculously impressive yet it's no surprise since it is a bit on the pricey side at $175 but if you download and order through the Shopbop app they give you 15% off your first purchase! I also love the fact that you can fit a bunch of stuff in it so it's perfect as a travel bag as well. The brand Poolside has tons of other bags with funny sayings as well such as "F*** you and your Hamptons house" which I wanted so badly but ya know not appropriate for everyday and all that haha. 

As for the dress, I bought this way back in May during my trip to Toronto in Hudson's Bay and I actually completely forgot about it until now. It's on sale for under $50 so make sure to grab it before it's sold out. It flows so beautifully in the wind and it's a super comfy dress that's perfect for brunch or other summer occasions. 


Hope everyone has a great Monday!

Top: Free People // Skirt: Abercrombie // Bag: Madison West via TJ Maxx // Shoes: BCBG Max Azria, old // Hat: H&M, old // Lips: Mac "Brave" 


Over the years, I've worn a lot of all-white outfits on Sweet, Short & Stylish but this one has to be my favorite. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I actually have a tan for once haha but I think it's because this outfit consists of girly elements with the blush pink yet it's a simple outfit and easy to recreate. These past couple of months, I've noticed a huge shift in my style and I prefer wearing simple things in neutral colors which I used to think was boring but it's made my life so much EASIER. You can mix and match outfits when you have a neutral color palette and you can focus on accessories since they stand out so much. Of course, I haven't gone to a minimalist wardrobe (I don't know how people do that haha) because once in a while I'll find something cute that's patterned or in a bold color but I try not to overdo it since I know I get sick of things easily and always go back to the basics. For this look, I pulled out this old Free People top which is super thin so it keeps me cool during humid summer days and my favorite white hat that makes me wish I was vacationing in St. Tropez. Also can we talk about this handbag? I already own one with a metal handle in black seen here but this pink one is perfect for the summer and was only $25 at TJ Maxx! In case you can't find it there, Topshop has a dupe that I linked below. 


Also I forgot to mention this (although I talked about it briefly on Insta!) but as you can tell, there's a new site design! We're still working on a few glitches here and there but it looks a million times better than before. I can't believe this is my site cause it's so much more polished and chic! My friend Chloe actually designed it and if you're need of a new website design, feel free to email me and I'll send you her info!
