Pretty & Chic iPhone Cases

One accessory we can always switch up, but rarely do, are our phone cases.  I own an iPhone, and I'm always using the same case, it's a super cute Starbucks case as seen below, but I need to switch it up.  There are just too many options not to. 

So, I've rounded up some chic cases I've come across recently, some are more expensive than others, but if you're looking to treat yourself with a little something this month, perhaps it'll be a new iPhone case?

Starbucks Soft Cover Silicone Case, $6.59

Budget Beauty: e.l.f. Illuminating Palette

e.l.f. cosmetics, a ridiculously affordable makeup brand that stands for eyes, lips, face, started their #playbeautifully campaign back in October.  I was so excited to have had the opportunity to be a part of the #elfbeautysquad for the past few months and I can't wait to start sharing all of the goodies I've been consistently testing out.  If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (elizabethmayce) you've seen me post product pictures and some unboxings on Snap.  Now that my blogging life is finally back in order I'm excited to share my e.l.f. favorites with you all!

By now I think we all know the largest trend in makeup involves contouring, illuminating,  highlighting, and strobing.  There are so many palettes and products out there that help achieve the look, but to be honest it can be difficult to find an illuminating product that doesn't cost a pretty penny.  I was shocked when I learned the e.l.f. Illuminating Palette was only $6...yes, six dollars.  Right now this palette is out of stock on the e.l.f. website, but I did find it on Amazon for about $15, which is a still a steal when you think about the price higher end brands sell these types of palettes for in stores like Sephora.

DC Eats: SER Restaurant Week Lunch

The DMV has been pretty snowed in since the weekend, no school Monday & Tuesday meant I could get out and enjoy a nice Restaurant Week lunch!  Restaurant Week in the D.C. area means a 3-course lunch ($22) or dinner ($35) at participating restaurants.  I've had my eye on Spanish eatery SER in Arlington, Ballston to be exact, so I figured it would be the perfect spot to sit, get some lunch, and get some work done on report cards.

Exuviance SkinRise Bionic Tonic

Remember in middle school everyone used those crazy strong astringent cleansing pads...they guaranteed all of your awkward-middle-school-life-ruining skin issues would *poof* disappear?!?  All this while completely drying out and depriving your skin from any and all moisture?!?  I used to love those things!! 

Wiping a cleansing pad all over ones face is so incredibly easy, good thing the cleansing pads I'm using nowadays are a little different than what I used back in middle school.  & by a little different, I actually mean a lot different.
