The Perfect Travel Makeup Bag

I’ve grown to be a very picky person when it comes to beauty or fashion items on my wishlist. I’ve been searching for a small makeup bag to fit in my purse for a while. I never found a design I liked, and I didn’t want to pay to more than 10$ for a travel bag.

When I went to Target recently, I stumbled across this adorable little bag! It’s the exact size I was looking for and it was only 5.99! I don’t like to carry a ton of makeup with me, but mostly touch up/emergency items, (chapstick, blot sheets, tampons, aleve, hair ties, etc.)

I couldn’t find this exact bag online, but it’s available in store. You can shop others like it by clicking here.

This has been a chloscall.

Until next time,

Music Monday

YOU GUYS.

It’s finally the weekend I’m seeing these amazing guys in concert!

I am so excited to see Thirdstory, I’ve been listening to their EP and their covers all week.

One of my favorites is G Train.

I took choir in high school so I have a weakness for a Capella.

Nonetheless, this trio is unbelievably talented. Their harmonies are incredible.

I’ll be doing a vlog/story time about their concert this weekend so stay tuned!

Listen to their song G Train here.

Until next time,

Saturday Chat

For this Saturday Chat I want to talk about anxiety.

I know for some people, they don’t think it’s  legitimate.

For others, it’s incredibly real, as they suffer from anxiety.

Let me just say this.

Even if you experience these things or not, stop judging people.

Just because you haven’t personally experienced certain feelings does not mean in any way that they do not exist. What could be hard for one person could be easy for the someone else.

No matter what the situation is, just be a nice human being.

Be a good friend, be there for people. Half of the time, we all just want a shoulder to cry on, someone to listen. Be that person. It might not seem like you’re doing that much, but you’re saving someone in the way they need to be saved.

I posted another cover on YouTube dedicated to the people who suffer from anxiety. I present to you Mad World by Gary Jules, you can watch it here.

Make a difference.

Until next time,

Chloe

Meet Paige

FullSizeRender (13)

Hi there! My name is Paige, I’m 16 and a junior. I’m a pre-professional dance and I work at an art museum.

What would you like to do when you graduate?

I’d really like to dance, whether it’s in a small company or off-broadway, that’s the dream!

Why do you think women judge each other so harshly?

I think it’s to make themselves feel better! I mean, if someone says to themselves something negative about someone else, it automatically brings up positive thoughts about themselves. People just want to feel good about themselves, they’re just going about it in the wrong way.

What do you think young women need to hear more often?

I think that they need to hear that life is tough, but you can still be kind! It’s hard to get to where you want to be, but you don’t have to “step on everyone” to get there.

What do you think is your best quality?

I think I’m really compassionate towards helpless victims; animals, people affected by violence etc.

What inspired you to become the person that you are?

My family is very arts-oriented and I was really lucky to grow up in such a great environment.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Just becoming the person that I am. I’ve overcome depression, eating disorders and self harm and I’m very proud of my recovery.

What advice would you give your younger self?

To try not to be so hard on myself! Not everything is the end of the world- try to find the good in things.

How do you find ways to be happy?

It’s really the little things that matter the most to me. A really nice day, seeing a friend unexpectedly, etc.

Today I want to talk about why I decided to start going back to the gym.

I feel like working out is a very touch subject; people are either extremely active or not at all.

I’ll admit, I wasn’t a person dying to go to the gym, and honestly I’m still not. But because my friends were all going and had invited me to go I figured, why not? Now that I’ve been going regularly, I’ve learned to appreciate it more.

Now I might sound like a broken record for those of you who aren’t very interested in working out, but let me tell you, it’s worth it.

Aside from the laziness factor, there really aren’t really any negatives when going to the gym. Here’s my list of reasons of why you should start working out.

  1. You get to meet new people and make friends.
  2. You’re finally working on that revenge bod to get back at that guy who blew you off. Okay, maybe a guy didn’t break your heart, but getting your butt in shape is going to give you then ultimate confidence.
  3. If you bring a friend with you, you guys can establish a routine together, like running a couple miles on the treadmill while checking out the cute guys downstairs lifting weights.
  4. Overall, it’s going to affect your life in a huge way. You’ll start making healthier choices, and feel more energized.
  5. You should be in shape so you’re always ready to physically kick ass if ever needed, because let’s face it, the world is a sketchy place.

And in case you didn’t appreciate my reasons, here’s a list from another source.

  • Exercising reduces stress
  • Working out boosts the happy chemicals
  • It improves self -confidence (obvs)
  • If you exercise outdoors, you’ll boost your self esteem even more.
  • It prevents cognitive decline
  • It alleviates anxiety
  • It will boost brainpower
  • It’s going to sharpen your memory too
  • It will help control addiction
  • Exercising increases relaxation
  • You’ll be more productive
  • You’ll inspire others
  • Exercising can boost your creativity
  • You’ll get sick less

So get out there, girl! In the end, all this hard work is for you.  You push yourself, you get to become the best version of yourself. Go kick ass and look great doing it.

Until next time,

Chloe

What we’re reading:

The Black Book of Secrets by F.E. Higgins

So this book was highly recommended and loaned to me by a close friend of mine.

I think it’s very important where you’re friends with someone or potentially dating someone, to read their favorite book. Read their favorite book, listen to their favorite song, watch their favorite movie. All these things will say a lot about a person.

Synopsis:

A young boy by the name of Ludlow Fitch is on a journey to escape a most heinous and terrible past. He’s eager to start a new life in an isolated village as an assistant to mysterious man who trades people’s secrets for money. Ludlow’s job will be to record these secrets in The Black Book of Secrets. However what Fitch’s new mentor might not be aware of is that Fitch himself may be the one who has the darkest of secrets.

 

So far, the novel’s style of writing is reminding me of similar in that of H.P. Lovercraft. I can’t wait to explore this village, and the secrets that Ludlow Fitch has learned.

Until next time,

Chloe

Closer by The Chainsmokers featuring Halsey

THIS HAS BEEN MY JAM ALL WEEK.

I absolutely love it, I listen to it at the gym, when I’m driving to or from work.

I love that it tells a little story about young love; I feel like one of the biggest problems with music nowadays is that none of these songs tell a story like they used to back in the day.

AND.

I just got a tattoo on my shoulder so whenever that line comes up, “bite that tattoo on your shoulder,” I feel like it’s a personal shout out to me, even thought it’s not at all.

I hope you all had a wonderful Monday.

Until next time,

Music Monday 


Saw It Coming by G-Eazy

For this week’s music Monday I’m obviously going to have to choose Saw It Coming by G-eazy. 

If you guys haven’t noticed I’m obviously a very big fan of his. I first heard of him when he was just starting out and I really enjoy his music. 

This is from the new Ghostbusters adaptation, but I already think it’s going to be a fun Halloween song once fall finally rolls around.

This song is also safe for work so have fun with this one!
Until next time,

Etsy Sunday 


I am so excited about this weeks Etsy Sunday because I had recently received a package from one of my really good friends who lives in Belgium and she had just taken a road trip earlier this summer through Europe. While she was on this journey she got me beads from all these wonderfully charming little places in Italy and Greece and I am so excited to add these new additions to my Etsy shop because they all have a wonderful story behind them that I can’t wait to share with you. 

I have new beads for my men’s section as well as my women’s section and I can’t wait to start making them and advertising them for you all because I think they’re very worldly and there’s definitely new designs that I’ve not had before so this is very very exciting.

Stay tuned for more updates about these bracelets. 

Until next time,

 Chloe
