Madeline’s favorites 

Remember when I said I would be posting somethig very exciting? 

Here it is, my current favorites all compacted for your convenience… 



pictures: by far one of my favorite activities; photographing pretty places, people or things. the camera shown above is a Fujifilm 33mm film, only thes best. 

books: oh how I adore a good read that makes you forget about your worries and real life. above, I have Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, and I’ll be honest, it wasn’t my favorite, well written book, but I was able to get through it and stay somewhat entertained. I honestly only read it because of the movie now out in theaters. I also included Eleanor and Park, one that I only recently started, but have high hopes for. I’m ALWAYS looking for another great book to add to my collection, so please don’t hesitate to add your favorites to the comment section(‘:

music: lately my life has revolved about beautiful sounds and the feelings they give me. hehe. two albums I have been listening to non-stop are twenty one pilots: blurry face and twenty one pilots: vessel. I have also been enjoying Misterwives. But my absolute favorite song of the moment is Alt-j: Breezeblocks. yes I know these songs are not extremely new, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be the best. 

writing: my favorite journal with one of my favorite pieces of artwork on it; the tsunami wave. I have used this notebook for nearly four years now, simply writing my thoughts, troubles, praises and prayers in. words written on paper are very important to me; you can always keep them to look back on. 

memory book: I love my Chatbook, or small, square book filled with pictures of lasting memories. I decided to name mine The Story pt. I because it symbolizes my life, and hopefully I will add on more and more. 

swim suits: I have nothing but good to say about Target’s swim suit selection… they are all beautiful. I picked out this black top with accents of neon straps to go along with my plain black strappy bottoms. 

anklets: or as my guy friend called them, “foot bracelets”. mine were originally wrap bracelets, but since I didn’t wear them anymore I decided to repurpose them and I couldn’t be happier with the results. they scream boho summer girl to me and I can’t get enough. 

My last three favorites are self explanatory for the most part, I included them because I am currently loving them. 

Important message: now that I have discussed all of my favorites with you, it’s your turn to tell me what you’ve been in love with! I want to know whatever your loving, but mostly your favorite music, photos, books and clothing.

Pacifica beauty product review + GIVEAWAY

                thDSC_0771

let’s begin.
I love Pacifica. their products are natural and chemical-free, they do a wonderful job enhancing “natural beauty”, as they like to put it, by utilizing minimal ingredients. they specialize in perfume and makeup, never failing to fill each container will peace and joy. they partake in a 100% vegan guarantee, cruelty free products, along with recyclable packaging, and a portion of all profits go towards supporting clean water.
their creations are made in the USA as well, whoohoo!
Steller Gaze Length and Strength Mineral Mascara

visually, the packaging is very unique and inviting.
I really like how big and full the brush is, it does a nice job of separating and volumizing your lashes. The mascara is infused with coconut and vitamin B, which are proven to help your lashes grow.
I experienced no flakiness, however, it was still easy to remove at the time I wanted. It gave my lashes quite a big of length as well and lasted all day as it claims.
I was able to try both the black (supernova) and brown (stardust); since I have such dark lashes it was hard for me to see a big difference between the two. on blue or green eyes I could see the brown looking great since it would accentuate the vibrance further.
I definitely like this product, I wish it was a bit larger in size, but other than that, the formula is wonderful.

Hawaiian Ruby Guava Roll-On Perfume
“Guava, pomello, and coconut notes”, this perfume delivers exactly what it says. a lightly sweet scent, perfect for a fresh summer day. just simply roll it onto the neck and wrists, and enjoy the aroma for the entirety of the day. personally, it reminds me of Hawaii each time I wear it, lovely! such a nice scent if you enjoy sweet and girly fragrances.

Tuscan Blood Orange Roll-On Perfume
I absolutely love this scent. It’s refreshing and clean smelling, filled with accents of citrus. i just imagine walking through an orange orchard with the sun shining on my back, listening to the birds tweedle and chirp.

It’s also perfect for a summer day at the ocean, and easy to throw in your beach bag for on-the-go use. I like how Pacifica doesn’t overdue their perfumes, they simply enhance a person’s natural beauty by adding a chemical-free scent to their skin.
Tahitian Gardenia Roll-On Perfume
usually I’m not the type to reach for floral or more sophisticated perfumes, but the Tahitian Gardenia has quickly become a favorite of mine. possibly due to the fact that it’s unlike any others I have in my collection. I enjoy how it isn’t too overwhelmingly flowery, it’s just the right amount of strength. Pacifica gets an A+ in my book for this creation of theirs.

overall, Pacifica is an outstanding company that produces harmless and natural products at reasonable prices. I will definitely be repurchasing some of these items and trying out new ones in the near future. go give them a visit and show your body some love by using their products!
