I went back and forth for about a month on whether or not I wanted bangs. Not the straight across ones, but the chic fringe inspired by Elsa Hosk, Jaci Marie Smith, and Zoe Lazerson. When I went in for my cut, I shocked my stylist and just straight up said I'm changing it up for once, lets do the bangs! Here I am... love them! I'm a big fan of finding the best ways to frame your face, and that includes wearing my hair up but I was tired of it always looking the same. Now though, half-up and ponytails are going to be so fun and I love them with my glasses!! If you're thinking about bangs, just do it! As my hair stylist said "hair is supposed to be fun, that's why it grows back!"
Happy weekend loves!
Fall is almost here!! Friday to be exact! Today I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite items I am excited about for fall other than the leaves changing and slightly cooler temps ;)
My first favorite is the all new Becca Velvet Primer. It comes in a soft little bottle and is so easy to apply. Just shake it up real quick and apply to your whole face. It makes the skin super soft for applying foundation. I have it in the peach and honestly if you aren't feeling like wearing any makeup its a good base to just put on real quick and go. (PS thanks Becca and Influenster for letting me try this out!)
Blush everything! It was big last year and is even bigger this year. I could wear it every single day and not get sick of it. I know I will be wearing this Two by Vince Camuto sweater on repeat this season. I got it at the end of last season but this style here is very similar.
I'm a denim lover, I can't deny it. I have way too many pairs but still find myself shopping for them. These Parker Smith distressed straight jeans are high waisted (the best) and so cute with a sneaker or bootie!
Happy almost Fall!!
I'm beyond picky about eyeliners! Sorry not sorry, partially because I have sensitive skin and eyes so if they aren't good quality I'll wake up with puffy eye lids and have to wear my glasses... not my best look in the morning.
Influenster teamed up with Marc Jacobs Beauty and gifted me two colors to test out! I was nervous that I would be sent crazy colors (because I'm not too confident in wearing bright colors on my eyes with makeup) but I received a beautiful dark blue called Overnight and the perfect shade of brown called Earthquake.
They went on soooo smooth and easy! I also don't have the most steady hand with eyeliner, so that is a huge plus for me haha.
They also sent a cute little book with different ways to style the Highliner that I will be sure to test out and get out of my comfort zone. Playing eyeliner colors is a good way to budge yourself try new things with makeup, simple yet can change your whole look! They come in 25 colors!! A color for anyone :) You can find these at Marc Jacobs, Sephora, and Neiman Marcus! Shop them below for my favorite colors and sets!

Thanks Influenster! XXX Haley
I love my morning (and afternoon) coffee and tea! What I love even more? Having a bright smile! Sadly my habits don't always allow for a perfectly white smile. However, now that I use Smile Brilliant and their personal teeth whitening trays I can have both!! I have tried different forms of whitening but ended up with sensitive teeth or gums and a white smile that didn't last very long.
Backstory: My teeth and mouth have always been a slightly sensitive topic. My mouth used to be THE WORST before braces and appliances! When I was a kid my front teeth came in with little enamel, causing for discoloration that is difficult and frustrating in evening out. I received whitening syringes after I got my braces off from my orthodontist but they caused pain and only whitened the tips of my teeth making them beyond sensitive! So I resorted to whitening toothpastes.
With Smile Brilliant, I use their regular whitening gel for about 40 minutes and then use the desensitizing gel afterwards, so I can happily eat ice cream and sip my iced lattes :) They send you a paste and mold forms to make your own trays, you send them back and they make you your own set of personalized whitening trays! So easy and so fast! These systems are created to work for any kind of tooth, thats why they even worked with my difficult teeth! Now I can seriously smile fearlessly when I'm shooting for the blog, or even just Snapchatting haha! Smiling 's my favorite!
