5 Lifestyle Bloggers to Follow (Fashion, Beauty & More!) – February 2017

Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday ❤

There are countless of blogs out there, so I began this blogging series in December in hopes to share the incredible sites I come by. This month’s picks happen to include more fashion and beauty related blogs, but you’ll find these bloggers have an array of interests that are seen on their sites. If you have a blog of your own or adore a particular one, please feel free to share it and meet others.

5 Lifestyle Bloggers to Follow - February 2017.jpg

Each month I feature five of the best lifestyle blogs I come across and follow. The blogs featured in this favorites series are directed by individuals who have an incredible niche for fashion, makeup, and/or skincare.


One of the first style blogs that stood out in February of 2017 is CIISTAFFAIRS by Minneapolis-based blogger Valentine. Her fashion blog is full of personality and documents her personal style, often featuring outfit combinations that range from casual everyday wear to items fit for the runway.

Another stunning blog that will inspire you when you’re in need of some fashion inspiration is The Bottle Blonde. Sydney Wilfley, the blonde behind this welcoming blog, writes she’s a “lover of fashion, beauty, food, and all the fund things in life.” Expect holiday lookbooks, seasonal style trends, and bold lip colors!

Heathermoors is a creative space where thoughts are delicately and gracefully expressed through photography. The style blogger also responds to different literature and invites you to discuss them with her. Heather lets her readers into her mind not only by her writing but by her manner of dress.

For those who are more interested in all things makeup, Catty Natty Beauty by Natalie is a refreshing cruelty-free beauty blog that provides great insights on bunny friendly makeup options. The Chicago-based blogger reviews products, which range from makeup to skincare, and informs of promising subscription services.

Baking can be challenging and prove to be quite the nemesis for many people. Samantha from The Beauty Spyglass shares some of her recipes in a way that both novice and experienced cook can understand. Her lifestyle blog is not solely about the musings of a foodie, but rather a creative outlet that has a little bit of everything.

Sincerely, Ingrid Nicole

Haul from VanityBox Makeup Artistry Store

Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday ❤

A small cosmetics store known as VanityBox Makeup Artistry in La Puente, California, caught my eye, for they carried beauty products from brands I had not been able to get a hold of. The studio offers PRO discounts to qualified beauty professionals and is open to fellow makeup enthusiasts like myself. I visited VanityBox with my dear cousin and purchased a few things I had my eye on.

Even though the store is on the smaller size, there is a generous amount of prominent cosmetics brands to choose from. They have an entire wall dedicated to Morphe Brushes and eyeshadow palettes (yes! I got my 35O here!). I picked up the M158 – Angle Liner/Spoolie for my brows and the M441 – Pro Firm Blending Crease brush. I also picked up two pairs of false lashes from the cruelty-free brand Koko LashesThe first pair of lashes is in 104, which is on the more natural side, and the second pair in Queen B is rather dramatic. To my surprise, VanityBox had the new L.A. Girl Cosmetics foundation in stock during a time when it was sold out everywhere else. The last two products I purchased was the Pro Coverage HD Long wear Illuminating foundation in Natural and the Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Light Ivory from L.A. Girl Cosmetics.

Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?

Sincerely, Ingrid Nicole

P.S. I post every Tuesday (well, I try too! lol).
