Honeymoon Essentials Shopping Spree

Y'all. I am so glad that we have been saving for 6 months for this honeymoon cause I did some serious damage this week/weekend. Since some of this stuff is perfect for a beach vacay + daily life, I figured I'd share the love/knowledge/lusting/shopping finds. This peplum top in black AND white. At $10.90, you can't beat it. It's adorable and has nothing to do with the beach. I digress.

 Linen beach pants. I'd like to wear these to work and bed and the gym. This should totally be socially acceptable.

I also picked up these super fun beach/sleep/yoga pants. They are super long, make your butt look good, and SO SO SOFT. (they had a different print at Nordstrom). $38? Ok! I also got this adorable white "I AM TOTALLY A TOURIST" hat.


Now: a word or a hundred on zits.

I have been wanting to replace my old school Clinique concealer for years. I like it because it covers, but also treated zits. However, it never really blends that well with my Tarte powder that I love. So I picked up this bad boy to try out and so far I love it. It provides a base to set powder and it's just simply badass.

I then went all Tarte: the concealer, the buffer brush, and the mascara. I love ALL of them! I also use their Clay Powder on the daily and have for months. Love it because it gives me a matte finish when I use it with my matte bronzer. So my new concealer plan goes like this: Use the Cover FX primer on my blemishes. Then use a brush like this to get the Tarte concealer brushed onto my spots. Then tap over the whole face (only buffing in spots without blemishes that have been concealed) and voila! Face coverage and treatment using the three things pictured.

After all that zit talk, I also got myself some of my new favorite perfume: Beach Walk. YUM! And some beach spray for wavy beach hair while I am at said beach. :)

Lastly, here is my final, updated books for the honeymoon list (adding Bossypants that I am borrowing). And yes, I am reading a Nicholas Sparks book. And yes, I am somewhat embarrassed, but I was directed to by my bestie and she will not be ignored. I CANNOT WAIT to get on that plane!!!
