Prom Must-Haves

Prom season is creeping up on us and it's best to get your plans all sorted out in advance to minimize stress on the day of the dance. I'm so excited to be able to attend this year and got a great deal on this dress! There is only so much you can fit into a clutch, so prepping the right way before the long night is a great way to cut down on what you carry in your bag.  These are some must-haves to keep in your clutch for prom and some things to use while getting ready!


Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray: After applying all of your makeup, spritz a light layer of this over your face to lock in your look. Try their All Nighter Setting Spray if you need some extra insurance!

Curl Holding Mascara: I'm not too adventurous when it comes to makeup and false lashes probably wouldn't turn out the way I would want them to. I talked about this mascara in my daily makeup post and love how it holds a curl and gives a natural and voluminous look!

Sole Serum: As a 16 year old, I don't have much experience walking in heels for more than ten minutes at a time before having to go barefoot. This serum eases the pain in your feet, making long durations of high heel wearing (and dancing!) much more bearable.

Blotting Papers: Use blotting papers to get rid of excess oil without ruining your makeup.

Bobby Pins & Safety Pins: These are essentials in case of a fashion emergency and don't take up much room in your clutch. Even if you don't end up needing them, somebody else is guaranteed to ask you for one.

Are you attending your school's prom this year? What are your must-haves?


Seeing Stripes

It is officially spring so I can finally break out my Jack Rogers! After a few weeks mixed with freezing temperatures and days that were almost in the 80s, I think the warmer weather is here to stay. With a breeze, it wasn't quite shorts and tee-shirt weather, but my Barbour coat thrown over my striped tee was the perfect weight. I picked up this striped shirt on sale from J. Crew the other day and I can already tell I am going to wear it way too many times (I wear this one multiple times per week #oops).





I finally had a chance to wear this amazing Loren Hope necklace I received in my Rocksbox earlier this month. Use the code 'gimmeglamourxoxo' for your first month free!





Daily Makeup

Today I am collaborating with Julia of Little Miss Haute Couture again to share the makeup products we use each day. Lately I have been keeping things pretty natural looking to help clear up my skin and to save time in the morning. Here are the products I have been using in my daily makeup routine.

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation: When I want a more full coverage look, I usually gravitate towards this foundation because it provides a good amount of coverage for how lightweight it feels on your skin. I always apply it with a Beauty Blender for a flawless finish. I had wanted one for so long but never wanted to spend $20 on it, so when my friend got one for me for Christmas I was so excited to finally try it out. It doesn't even compare to any of the knockoffs!

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer: Staying up well into the morning studying and doing homework hasn't done anything good for my complexion, so this concealer covers up my dark circles under my eyes and imperfections on my face.

Maybelline Fit Me! Powder: As the weather has been warming up recently, it's been more important to set my foundation with a powder to prevent my face from getting oily throughout the day. I usually wait to put on powder until a few minutes after my foundation has dried to prevent my face from getting a cake-y look.

Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Boxed Blush: This is my all time favorite blush and is wearable year round. It is the perfect shade of pink and gives a really natural look.

Bobbi Brown Warm Eye Palette: I picked this palette up around Christmas and have used it almost every day since. It has the perfect combination of neutral shimmery and matte shades that are great for everyday wear. When I don't have a lot of time in the morning (more often than not) I use the darkest shade to line my upper lash line to skip the frustrations of liquid liner.

Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner: When I do have time to apply eyeliner in the morning, this has been my go-to liner. It is a gel liner in a pen that is applied using a rubber tip- it's an interesting concept and takes some practice to perfect. It's also completely waterproof! I wore it in the lake once and it didn't budge.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara: I had been loving using Benefit's They're Real mascara for a while, so when the Roller Lash came out earlier this month I knew I had to try it out. I ended up liking this mascara even better than the They're Real because it holds a curl and gives a really natural look!

What are some makeup products you can't go without?

Rocksbox Jewelry

I have seen tons of different types of monthly subscription boxes in circulation recently, but the idea behind Rocksbox really stood out to me. With Rocksbox, you receive a box each month with different jewelry items suited to your taste that are being loaned to you. At the end of the month, you have the option to send the pieces back in exchange for new ones the next month, or you can purchase them for a discounted price. Each box is usually $19, but with the code "gimmeglamourxoxo" you can get your first box free! I am really impressed with the pieces in my box and the good condition they are in! They will definitely be in upcoming blog posts.


Here's what came in my box this month:
Loren Hope Necklace // Perry Street Necklace // Gorjana Necklace
