Kiehl's Ultra Toner
Since winter is coming, I've started planning my conquest to claim the iron throne switching up my skincare routine in favor of products geared towards dry skin. This Kiehl's toner has a milky, lotion consistency and is meant to "prepare, hydrate, and comfort skin." And it indeed does all 3 for me! I use it in the morning in lieu of washing my face (or more realistically, using a micellar water), and it cleans my skin in addition to prepping it for my moisturizer. At night I apply it after washing my face, to sooth it before I apply my moisturizer.

I have pretty sensitive, combination skin and am wary of using anything with oils in it as 8 times out of 10 they cause my skin to freak the f*ck out. But this toner is gentle enough for me. Price-wise it isn't cheap, but considering it's over 8 fl. oz and a premium brand, I think the price is very reasonable.

Lush Life- Zara Larsson
When this song first came up on my iTunes radio, I thought it was a new Rihanna single and was glad she was going back to her pop roots (please, Ri-ri). When I glanced at my phone I was shocked to see it was Zara Larsson. The name sounded vaguely familiar and then I realized it was because earlier this year I had listened to some of her music on Linda's blog! Anyways, if you like pop-y music you can dance around in your room to-- give it a listen!

Some Room Inspo
I know literally nothing about interior design. All I know is that I like things that look... homey and lived in. Lately it seems like a lot of blogs I follow have been featuring interior design posts, so naturally my interest in the topic has grown.

One thing I've always wanted in my future home is a library-- or at least an entire wall filled with walls to form a pseudo library. Both photos are from pinterest.

Sephora for JCPenney: The Perfect Ten
While I love the holidays because of non-material things, I admit I also love the holidays because of material things. And the only thing that comes close to my love of exclusive holiday chocolates (hello, peppermint bark!), is my love of exclusive holiday beauty products. My first buy of the season is this Sephora for JCPenney exclusive, which sadly is sold in stores only.

The bag contains 5 full size items: a Smashbox be legendary lipstick in magenta matte, a Kat Von D ink liner in trooper, an original beautyblender, a Elizabeth & James rollerball in their nirvana black scent, a formula x nail polish in astronomical, and a Nars dual intensity eyeshadow in himalia. In addition, there are also 4 travel mini products: a MUFE step 1 skin equalizer, a Tarte contouring stick in park avenue princess, a Benefit they're real mascara, and an Urban Decay all nighter makeup setting spray.

The full sized items retail for a combined value of $123.50, and this set only costs $49! I already had the beauty blender and eye liner on my to-buy list so it was a no brainer to shill out a few more bucks to get this whole set. If you're interested in a review for any of the products, please let me know :)

If you don't live near a JCPenney, the Sephora Superstars set is fairly similar and available online and at Sephora stores.
