NEW BTSS PIC

The Perfect Backpack

For this upcoming school year, I’ve had my eyes on the North Face Women’s Borealis Backpack and for my birthday, I was so happy to have received this one! This backpack has so much storage and compartments to hold school supplies and much much more! I’m hoping to do a “Backpack Organization” post in the future.

The Trendiest Water Bottle

To keep my thirst quenched during school, my go to is my Camel Bak Eddie Water Bottle, but the Swell Bottles have definitely been on my wishlist for school, especially the white one or this magenta one!

——

A Lilly Agenda

I absolutely loved my Lilly Pulitzer agenda last year! It has so much room to write daily to-do’s, but for me, homework! I recommend this agenda to everyone! Plus, there are so many sizes to choose from that works best for you!

My July Faves

Welcome to a new post on Sprinkle of Southern! Through the month of July, I wasn’t really too productive when it came to things I actually did, but I did find some goodies that I always seemed to be reaching for this month, so I hope you enjoy!

Clean & Clear Morning and Night Duo

My face broke out a little bit on my chin and especially my forehead, but when I started to use my Morning Burst Facial Cleanser and the Night Relaxing Face Wash, my trouble spots were no where to be seen in the matter of a couple of days! Trust me, these bad boys work wonders, plus they smell amazing.

Lilly Pulitzer Mini Callahan Shorts

These shorts are A) super comfy and B) super cute!! I am in love with the print and the colors! I’ve paired these shorts with a plain white top from J.Crew and a pair of sandals from J.Crew Factory. Also, they are the same material as J.Crew Chinos, so if you enjoy those shorts then you will have no hesitation loving these Lilly ones.

Burts Bees Vanilla Bean Lip Balm

This lip balm has to be a 10 out of 10, but what Burts Bees product doesn’t impress, am I right?! It is so smooth and being a girl with constant chapped lips, this lip balm has definitely helped with that!

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

This mascara is unbelievable! Do you want volume? This mascara has it. Do you want length? This mascara has it. Do you want color? This mascara has it; this mascara has it all!!  This mascara is so easy to apply and even fix with a plain mascara brush! My lashes are long even with no product in them, but this gives the right amount of everything to make a girl happy about her lashes! My routine has been applying this mascara (in a black color) to my upper lashes and my Clinique mascara (a brown/black color) to my lower lashes and they make great results!!

My Favorite Summer Outfit 

Through shopping and collecting different summer fashion essentials, I’ve created my go to summer outfit that can be dressed up or dressed down! All of the fashion pieces that are mentioned will be linked down below, so make sure to scroll down to find those.

——

My flowy tank top is super lightweight and comfy for the summer time, plus it comes in many more fun colors! The tank and sandals in this outfit were featured in my latest haul, so that will also be linked down below as well. I paired up this tank with some plain white shorts from Old Navy.

——

I dressed up this outfit by adding my magenta Kendra Scott earrings; which added a statement piece to the simple tank and some color! But, I also wore this tank with my classic pearl earrings from Francesca’s for a more laid back look.

Here is the full view of my outfit!

These shoes add so much to a plain navy tank top! The diamonds on the strap automatically caught my eye when browsing the J.Crew Factory in my town. I absolutely love them, plus they are super comfy; so that’s a win-win to me!

May Favorites 

It’s Sunday, so that means a new blog post, and today’s post is all about my favorites from the month of May! I hope you enjoy my little obsessions from this month; lets get started!

Nike 5.0 Fly Knits 

WMNS-NIKE-FREE-RN-FLYKNIT-831070_400_A_PREM

I have been living in these shoes on the weekends and especially at school, because they are so comfy!! I got these shoes in a blue color, but they come in so many different colors + styles! They are awesome + definitely durable for anything! 

Lilly Pulitzer Agenda


My Lilly Agenda has been my life saver especially with finals coming up; it’s helped me keep on track for upcoming tests and quizzes + finals that are coming up!!

Essential Oils Diffuser  


I recently bought this diffuser from Amazon, and since then, I’ve slept 10x better!! I add lavender to it + I don’t think I can go back to sleeping with out this!

Black Arizona Birkenstocks 

These shoes have been my go to for the spring + summer time because they are so easy to slip on and they dress up/down any outfit!

Vineyard Vines Shirts


These simple, yet bold tees have been my favorites shirts for this time of year because they are so light but super cute!

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Face Scrub 

My face has been getting really oily lately, so this scrub has helped my skin stay soft and healthy!!

Lululemon Haul

Since you guys really liked my previous hauls + I personally always love to read about hauls, I’m here again with another haul. The exact links for the two items will be at the end of this post if you scroll down.

Here are my previous hauls (1234)

img_4562

The first thing I got was the Swiftly Tech Racer back In Heathered Pink Paradise. I have been loving this color for a while, so I was so happy to find this at my local Lululemon. This tank adds so much color to an outfit, plus it is so comfy!

img_4561

The second thing I got was the Swiftly Tech Racer Back in Black. I loved the sleek look of the black + I loved the fact that is matches with pretty much everything!

These two tanks literally feel like you don’t have a top on; they are so lightweight, so they are perfect for sports, working out, or yoga! They only tip I have is to go up a size (unless you like tight tanks), I am usually a 2, but I went up to a 4.

I hope you liked this post + this haul. Have a great day!

Peel Off Mask Review + Experience 

Hello everyone, welcome back!! I recently tryed out a peel off mask from the brand Que Bella from Target. Let me just say, five stars!! I loved this product, so I’m going to show you my experience with a peel off mask & the results! 

 
Applying The Mask: I used the Que Bella Skin Brightening Papaya Peel Off Mask. I have to say, I don’t like the smell of papayas, so opening the pouch was kind of smelly for me. As soon as I opened the pouch, there was thick, gooey gel (almost) and there was enough to buy a pouch for two people. I evenly put a medium amount of the gel on my face (not a thin amount, but not a thick amount), then waited about 16 minutes to set. 
 
Tip: If you put a lot of the gel on your face, it will take a longer time to set, so the 15-20 minutes you have to wait will need to increase to about 25 minutes. 

Peeling Off The Mask: After 16 minutes of waiting, I peeled of the mask starting from my jawline, all the way up to my forehead, then back down to my jawline on the other said of my face. It didn’t hurt at all to take off the mask, and it didn’t leave any red spots on my face (as it said on a review I read). 
Tip: On the pouch it says to not put the gel on your eyebrows, any hair on your face, around your lips and eyes. I tried the best I could to not spread the gel around my eyebrows, but it drips a little so when peeling off the mask, I was a lot more careful around my eyebrows.

  

Results: This is how my face turned out, my skin was so soft and smooth!! I would definitely use this product again! 

So this product was a success in my mind! I hope you guys liked this post & enjoyed me reviewing products; let me know if you want me to review anything else! Have a great Sunday! 

My March Obsessions 

Hello everyone, welcome back!! March is almost over (March went by so quickly) and I’ve got some current obsessions from this month, so here they are; Enjoy!

1. My first obsession are the Steve Madden Charlez Sandals! They are the comfiest sandals & I love the color and the lace up feature. They are my go to sandals for on the go, plus they look great with literally any outfit!


2. My second obsession is the Burts Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser; it’s heaven in a bottle. This cleanser keeps my skin soft and oh-so hydrated! I definitely recommend.


3. My third obsession has been the New Balance Jcrew 696 (I’m pretty sure, but they will be linked) Tennis Shoes. They are so fun and super comfy!

4. My fourth obsession has been my Patagonia Half Zip. I got it in white so it could match with everything, and it sure does! It’s super comfy, but also very lightweight.

5. My fifth obsession has been my pearl earrings from Francesca’s Boutique. They go with everything plus they add a classy touch to any outfit!
