Burnt Orange Trench Coat | Fall Style 2016 | The Kat Life Style

I am officially back and ready to get into a regular posting schedule. After many months of school and just pure lack of motivation and inspiration I am ready to get back to posting to this blog. I will also be changing the name to The Kat Life as I feel this will incorporate more of what I want to produce and create on this blog. Which is more all-inclusive content and not strictly fashion but more of a positive reinforcement for a vibrant life. I hope to bring you weekly videos and content that will inspire you to live a life not fixed on things but more fixed on feelings and experiences.

Beauty Tips :12hr Work Shift Makeup Video | Kathleen Hicks

I apologize for the silence here on the blog but I have been catching up with school work and also because it has been so fricking hot here in North Carolina every time I want to go take photos its 90 degrees and humid as ever.  Today I bring you this simple every day makeup look that I wear every time I go to work at the hospital. I work 12 hour shifts at night this has been my ride or die makeup look. It's super easy and doesn't involve a lot of products. I have listed all the products used the the description box of the video. Also don't forget to subscribe HERE to my YouTube Channel.

Off the shoulder tops are a go to for me, and their are tons of places to choose from to find that perfect top. I think when dressing I like to balance a flowy top and form fitting skirt and vice versa. I have listed some really cute off the shoulder tops.

My love for off the shoulder tops continues to grow. I like showing just a little bit of skin and balancing it out with long sleeves or a long bottoms. You will be seeing this top again soon here on the blog. Have a productive Thursday!

Warmer days are a coming. Finally after chill last week the weather is finally getting warmer which is perfect for all the off the shoulder tops I have been harboring in my closet for days like this. I recently passed my Certified Personal Training exam from NASM so I am so excited to start putting together my weekly workouts and tips. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

My favorite shopping is swimsuit shopping. Getting a new bikini always makes me excited for summer and going to the beach and just hanging out with the people I care about and making new memories. Here are some cute swimwear to get any one excited about the warm weather.

Skin care should be a big part of every ones routine. I have realized now that if I take the time to care for my skin while I am young it will create a huge difference when I get older. I make sure I don't sleep in my make up, I moisturize my face day and night and I am always on the look out for new skin care products. I recently got sent a sample pack of the products and got to try them out. 

The first item in my sample pack was a Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste. It is a sugar and salt scrub that has vitamins C and E. I used it in the morning and it made my skin feel really soft and I was able to apply my make up easily to my newly smooth skin.

The second item in my sample pack was a Redefine Night Renewing Serum. It visibly reduces the appearance of aging with a potent blend of peptides an d retinol. After I applied this serum I could feel my skin tighting which alot of my other skin care products say they do this but not as much as this product.

Last but not least is the favorite of the three, which is a Redefined Lip Renewing Serum. My lips tend to get dry quickly and putting chapstick on constantly can get quite tiring. But after putting this on before bed I noticed I didn't have to reach for my chapstick until maybe noon the next day.

So far I really like Rodan and Fields Products, if your in the market for a new skin care routine I think you won't be disappointed. Thank you Shannon Swoop for sending me these samples and as always all opinions are my own. Shop their new products and check out the ones I have mentioned here shannonswoope.myrandf.com

A new season means a new line of fashion and makeup and I am pretty excited about some items that are coming out this upcoming season. I have listed 10 products that are coming out this Spring that you should definitely check out the next time you are in Sephora, Ulta, or just browsing the web.

1. Morphe Cosmetics "12NB" Palette, this is a gorgeous palette for all my girls who love their neutral colors and it's ON SALE 
2. Coloured Raine Matte Lipstick "2AM", I watched this video and fell in love with this color. 
3. ColourPop KaePop Collection - again in love with the shimmer and neutrals in this collection great for mixing and matching.
4. M.A.C. Viva Glam Ariana Grande Dark Plum Matte Lipstick - this is such a beautiful color and you can wear this when you want a little drama in your look.
5. Kat Von D Shade+Light Two Tone Blush - get more for your money and try a two tone blush were you can mix them together or use them separate.
6. NARSissist Cheek Studio Palette - This is such a beautiful palette and would honestly be a great item for any one wanting to get in to makeup. It has both warm and cool tones as well as shimmers and matte shades.
7. BECCA After Glow Palette - who says you can't have enough highlight, if you didn't want to spend a ton of money on one highlight and end up not loving it then you should try this palette which would allow you to test 5 of BECCAs highlights
8. NYX Lip Lingerie - if you haven't been able to get your hands on the kylie lip kits or just didn't care these are greta dupes for the colors and priced well.

Have you tried any of these products?

Wanted to share some things I have saved in the wish list (sorry not sorry).  Since starting Nursing School I haven't had time nor energy to get some quality outfit photos in so I figured I can show you what I have been looking at during my small quick lunch breaks during school.
