What's On My Galaxy S4

What's On My Galaxy S4
I've been wanting to do a what's on my phone blog post for a little while now, but I wanted to wait until I got a new phone because my old one was pretty crappy. I got the Samsung Galaxy S4 about a month ago and I'm obsessed with it. I have so many apps on it, but instead of listing everything on my phone, I decided to just share my most used apps. 

1 Second Everyday: I've only had this app for less than a month, but I really like the concept. You literally just record a 1 second video clip every day and then over time you can create a whole video with all the clips.

1Weather: My favorite weather app ever. I just really like the design and accuracy of it.

2048 Puzzle: I don't know why, but I don't like to have games on my phone. So this is the only game on my phone! I love that it really makes you think. 

Animal-Free: Super helpful vegetarian/vegan app. You can look up ingredients to see if they're vegan and what the ingredient actually is.

HappyCow: Another helpful vegetarian/vegan app. It shows you vegan and vegetarian-friendly food places nearby. 

Instagram: Of course! Who doesn't have Instagram these days? This is probably my most used app. 

Google Keep: A really handy app for reminders, notes, and to-do lists.

Nike Training: The only fitness app that I've ever loved.

Pinterest: I mostly just use this app to see my style inspiration pins when I'm out shopping or I'm trying to find something to wear. 

Reddit is fun: I'm not really a Reddit user. I just love reading stories from NoSleep and LetsNotMeet. I'll usually read a few stories while I'm laying in bed before I go to sleep. 

Tumblr: Because I'm addicted to Tumblr.

VSCO Cam: My #1 go-to photo editing app!

My Current Favorite Blushes

My Current Favorite Blushes
NYX Cinnamon Powder Blush Milani Rose D'Oro Baked Blush
I didn't start wearing it until like 2 years ago. I actually used to hate blush. All I ever saw was really badly applied pink blush and I honestly didn't know they even had blushes in any other color. I don't care for pink blush at all, especially on myself. I prefer more orange/coral toned blushes. I've been in love with Nars Taj Mahal for awhile now, but I really don't want to spend $30 on a blush. So I've been trying to find some drugstore blushes that are just as pretty. These are the 2 that I've been loving. 

NYX Cinnamon Powder Blush: This is seriously the only blush I used last year. I think because it's orange most people would only wear it in the spring and summer, but I wear it year round. I really like the way it looks on my skin. 

Milani Rose D'Oro Baked Blush: I recently picked this blush up and I haven't used any other blush since. It's honestly the prettiest blush I have ever seen. It's a shimmery blush so it really makes my skin glow. I like my skin to look dewy and luminous so this blush is perfect for me.

Lately, I have been completely obsessed with traveling. I've always known I wanted to travel the world someday, but I just felt like I would never financially be able to do so. I was so discouraged that I pretty much stopped thinking about it all together up until very recently. I saw a flyer at my school for the study abroad program and I just got super enthusiastic about traveling again. So I've been looking for ways to travel on a very low budget. Surprisingly, there are tons of ways to travel for cheap! Now that I know it's definitely possible for me to travel, I've been working on my travel bucket list. I thought it would be cool to share with you guys. I'll probably end up adding more, but for now this is it. What are some places you would like to travel to?

Makeup by One Direction Review #2

Back in August I did a review of One Directions first makeup collection. I use that collection often so I was pretty excited when I got a chance to review their next collection. This collection consists of five different tins, one for each of the boys. I received Zayn, Niall, and Harry. I initially thought the different sets had different makeup products, but actually the only thing different is the design on the tins. All of the tins contain the same makeup products and colors.

As for the makeup, I'm not a huge fan. The eyeshadows are absolutely gorgeous at first, but when you get past the first layer, the color changes. It starts off really shimmery and then it turns matte. I dislike matte eyeshadows so I was bummed out about that. The eyeliner doesn't last and the nail polishes chip right away. However, I did actually like the lip glosses! They're pretty and feel really nice on my lips. I will add swatches later! 

I know this collection is mostly aimed at younger girls so I didn't expect it to be high-end quality, but I'm still a bit disappointed. As I stated before, I love the previous collection. Unfortunately, I'm just not happy with this collection.
