New York City

I love the city but I exspecially love the city during Christmas time. There is something that is magical about it. The crowded city streets, crazy crowds, and decorations all over the city always seem to put me in the Christmas spirit. One of my favorite parts of Christmas time in New York City is the Christmas Markets throughout the city. My absolute favorite is the Bryant Park Christmas Village. You can buy ornaments, accessories, and my personal favorite is the food. The fried pickles and Nutella Banana Crepes are my favorite. This year I went to see the Radio City Rockettes for the second time. I have loved the Rockettes since I was a little girl and I am so happy I was able to see them again. We decided to do the Top of the Rock and that never disappoints. The views from the Rockefeller Center are breathtaking. It’s my favorite view of the city.Our final night we did a NYC harbor tour, which I have never done, and loved it. The tour stops in the financial district, Brooklyn, and the Statue of Liberty. We went at sunset so we got to see the sun go down over the city and it was just beautiful.I feel really blessed to have the opportunity to go to New York. I’ve been three times in the last three years and I never get tired of this beautiful city. 

One of my new favorite places for New York style cheesecake is Eileen’s Special Cheesecake. So yummy!

We had such a great time in the city. I hope you have all had a great Thanksgiving vacation and hope you enjoyed taking a peek at mine!

Review e.l.f Skincare

I’ve been seeing a lot about the skincare line the e.l.f has recently put out and have been trying two of the products from the range. I picked up the Daily Face Cleanser and the the Daily Hydration Moisturizer. 

The Daily Face Cleanser comes out as gel formula and when I wash my face it foams up. It’s leaves my face feeling clean but without leaving my face feeling dried out. Over the course of using it I feel like it’s such a good option for a drugstore cleanser. 

I’ve come to actually love The Daily Hydration Moisturizer. I wasn’t entirely sure whether I would like it or not I have discovered I love it. I didn’t at first like the feeling of it but once it settled into my skin and I put my makeup on my mind changed completely. My makeup sat so amazing on top of this moisturizer it’s one of my all time favorite drugstore moisturizers.

I loved both of these products for the new e.l.f Skincare line. For the price they are amazing. I am super passionate about skincare so that makes me super picky as well. They are a great drugstore option and will definently be a Fall favorite for when my skin gets dryer.
