Beauty Favorites No. 4

It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post and talked about my favorite makeup products. I’ve recently tried some new things and gone back to a few old and thought I’d share what I’ve been reaching for daily… or at least the days I’m going my makeup!

MAKEUP

Laura Mercier hydration primer– This works miracles! Ok that’s an exaggeration… but it’s great if you have dry skin. It doesn’t make you oily or greasy as the day goes on but it makes foundation look so smooth. (For what it’s worth, I tried this with the silk creme foundation and returned the foundation. Totally not worth the hype in my opinion. Definitely didn’t have the coverage, wasn’t easy to blend, was slightly yellow in tone, and just overall didn’t look or feel good on my skin.)

Laura Mercier translucent powder– When I returned the foundation, I exchanged it for a travel size of the powder and I love it. Even though I have dry skin, I always powder lightly. Mostly it’s out of habit of setting foundation for the last few years, but also even though my skin is dry, I feel like throughout the day I get oily if I don’t powder.

23 Facts About Me

I decided for my 23rd birthday I would share some facts about myself! I’m sure I’ve mentioned a majority of these at some point in the last three years I’ve had this blog but I figured it never hurts to introduce yourself again, right?

  1. 23 is my favorite number, I think I just decided this since I was born on the 23rd but I also tend to notice the number a lot. Probably because I’m hyper aware of it. Also, as a kid I decided I had to have a favorite number and 23 was it.
  2. I’m an only child.
  3. I never played on a sports team but in 5th grade we had a kickball tournament and my team was in first place… so I’ll always have that accomplishment! 😂
  4. When I was a kid, every Saturday I went to my Grandparent’s house and every Saturday my grandma and I would eat Macaroni and Cheese for lunch. This went on for at least three years. And I mean every Saturday.
  5. I never really collected anything until the last few years, I started collecting Texas Ranger bobble heads.
  6. Photography is the first thing I really remember loving to do. On holidays and other family gatherings, I used to take my Aunt’s Canon camera and just run around the house taking photos of everyone.
  7. My favorite movie is Sweet Home Alabama.
  8. I was born 10 weeks early and came home a week before Christmas. I still have small scars on my hands and feet from the IVs. Apparently I also had IVs in my head that I would pull out. 😳
  9. I love listening to music but I’ve never been to a real concert. Although, I did see Lifehouse at a fall festival five years ago.
  10. I met my best friend in preschool, we’ve been friends for 20 years and I’m pretty sure we were meant to be twins.👯
  11. My favorite animal is a moose.

Tee Dress Two Ways

IMG_3916

One of my biggest problems when it comes to style, is learning to wear an outfit more than one way. I’m a creature of habit, if I find something I like I stick with it. I order the same things from restaurants and rarely try something new, why mess with a good thing?

When it comes to an outfit, if I still a shirt or a dress one way, that’s pretty much the only way I’ll wear it. Because I know it works!

So I “challenged” myself for this post. Which really wasn’t too much of a challenge but hey, I tried!

My style is obviously casual, that’s what I like and I’m a full-time college student so I don’t really have a need to wear anything to fancy.

So basically I styled this dress casually and then like a step or two up from casual.

Musings No.7

So I wanted to share some things that I’ve already shared on Instagram… and also elaborate on them because some times you can only put so much in an insta caption before people just don’t care anymore, right? I mean at least on my own blog, y’all just expect me to go on and on and on. Or at least I hope you do!

And maybe you don’t see my instagram posts because you don’t follow me on there… or because instagram has that stupid algorithm now so nobody sees anything these days.

Either way, now you’ll see them. And with links for things featured in it, so even better!

I am a brand ambassador for thegamedaychic.com and they have the most amazing shirts and caps for any and all game days! Baseball, college football, NFL, they’re all perfect! Even better, if you use the code MorganP15, you can get 15% off your order!

The Perfect Striped Button Down

I’ve always loved button down shirts… but not necessarily on me. I like more casual wear and something about a collared shirt just never looked right on me. At least that’s what I thought.

I’ve talked about how much I love stripes, it’s pretty obvious just by scrolling through my blog or instagram so I was really happy when I ordered this shirt and loved it instantly. It’s not super thin, but definitely doesn’t feel heavy, which is nice since Texas hasn’t gotten the memo that it’s fall. It’s over-sized, which I love in general but also  doesn’t seem so business-y since that’s not my style. Basically it doesn’t make me feel like I’m trying too hard I guess!

Fall Floral

It still doesn’t feel like fall in Texas but that’s not stopping me from dressing a little more like that. Which really just means wearing jeans instead of shorts but I’ll take what I can get.

Let me give you a little behind the scenes of taking these photos.

First, it was hot. The clouds may have helped these photos look a little more fall like since the sun wasn’t intense but they definitely didn’t help make it feel anything like fall. And even though it was cloudy, I could barely keep my eyes open.

Which would be the reason why I’m looking down or away from the camera, otherwise I’d be squinting the whole time. The struggle of having sensitive eyes, I guess!

Musings No. 6 | Friday Favorites

watching: In the last couple months, I’ve binged three different shows: The Bold Type, Younger, Brooklyn 99. I’m terrible at describing shows but I would say The Bold Type and Younger are more toned down versions of Sex in the City (I’ve only seen just a few episodes here and there of that so maybe it’s not the best description but that’s what I’m going with!) All three shows are on Hulu and Brooklyn 99 comes back next week!

rediscovered: Kristen Ess hair care I use the texture spray all the time! It’s perfect after curling your hair because it makes it more undone, which is what I prefer. The dry shampoo is the best one I’ve tried. I used the leave-in conditioner and the serum all the time a few months ago, took a break from it to try other things, and now I’m back to it. The serum is great after curls as well, if you feel like your hair is looking a little dry at the ends (me always!) and then spraying it with the texture spray and you’re good to go!

Printed

I am so excited to share this post with y’all! A few weeks ago, I talked about my love of photography and that I loved looking through old photos and slides that my grandpa took. The one thing I hate about the digital age is I don’t feel obligated to print photos. And if I don’t print them, I only look at them long enough to post on Instagram or to put on an external hard drive.

I think the last time I printed photos was a few years ago for a collage I made but it was disappointing because some photos didn’t print in the right direction or the color was off. With being able to edit photos and crop them in somewhat “abnormal” sizes, they don’t always print how you see them, they’re zoomed in to fit the print. (Am I making sense here?!)

Try On Haul No. 1

So I decided to do something a little different. This post will go side by side with my instagram story today. It’s a funny thing when you’re a small blogger and you can’t put direct links in your insta stories and can’t upload videos to your blog because of storage… you have to make due with what you have.

So I’m including screen shots and links in this post from my try on session from insta stories. Some of my favorite insta stories are when bloggers try on things they just bought, it’s like talking with a friend after shopping!

My instagram handle is @morgannprice (make sure you get the two n’s!) and I’ll get the story posted as close to posting this as possible. I know the photos below aren’t the best, lighting was an issue, but the videos on insta story will hopefully make this try on haul a better experience! 🙂

First Day of School

Anyone else get totally exhausted after the first day of class even though you don’t really do anything? Total information overload. I swear I never feel as exhausted during the school year as I do on the first day.

Even during finals. Which I’m sure sounds crazy to some people!

The most exciting part of this semester is I’m really getting into the bulk of the courses for my major, print/digital journalism. I’m most excited for the photography course. As y’all know, I love photography, but everything I know is pretty much self taught. I’ve never had any formal training.

Now lets talk about what I wore. It wasn’t this outfit. But that’s mostly because every time I plan to wear a dress, it’s windy and generally on campus it’s way windier than when I leave my house so I just don’t risk it. It was also cooler today, 80 degrees, and it tends to be pretty to cold in the buildings I’m in all day, so I actually ending up wearing jeans.

But what I really want to talk about are these shoes!
