What's On My Fashion Wishlist ft.

Hey cupcakes! I hope you enjoyed my last post, where I shared with you all my current beauty wishlist. I wanted to stick with that type of post today... So I hope you enjoy what is currently on my fashion wishlist (featuring the awesome cute clothes from Yoins has clothing that is super trendy but is priced at such fair prices, so it is definitely a website you all should check out! :)

1. Burgundy floral dress ($19.95)

Burgundy Random Floral Print Crossed Collar Bell Sleeves Dress with Zip Design

I think this dress is so cute! The darker color makes it perfect for the winter time, and you can get it in 4 other colors. I have always loved floral dresses (I am pretty sure about 95% of all the dress I own are floral print), so this is definitely on my wishlist!

2. Boybye Crop Top ($9.95)

Yellow Letter Print Crew Neck Top

Yoins always has such a great selection of crop tops (check out all women's crop tops here!), which is amazing because sometimes at stores like Forever21 you can only find cheapy "party" crop tops. Even though the weather is cold, I like to pair cropped shirts with an oversized cardigan and some leggings, and I think this graphic shirt is perfect for that!

3. Long Sleeve Shirt ($17.95)

Dark Grey Crossed Front Design Plain Round Neck Long Sleeves T-shirts

Sometimes my classrooms are super warm, so I don't necessarily want to put on a thick sweater. So, I love to wear long sleeve shirts (with an added scarf sometimes)! This shirt is so plain and simple, which is just how I like it (plus, there are 7 more colors to choose from!).

4. High Waisted Jeans ($23.95)

Dark Blue Without Front Pockets Basic Bodycon Jeans

For only $24 how can you go wrong with these jeans??? As most of you all probably know, I have always preferred skinny jeans/pants over leggings (lol even though right now I am wearing leggings oops). These pants would be perfect to style with the Boybye crop top, an oversized sweater, etc!

5. Lace Bralette ($7.95)

Black V-neck Lace Bra with Choker

I feel like I have been really late to the whole bralette craze, but my collection has slowly been growing over time. Yoins has a HUGE selection of bras, bralettes, and even lingerie sets (check out all hot sexy lingerie for women here!), which is awesome because you can buy a bunch of everything from the same place. I think this bralette is gorgeous!

Lol - this is super boring, but I really need to upgrade my tweezers! I borrowed my roommate's Tweezerman Tweezers and fell in LOVE... They work so well, and I definitely need to make the investment for my brows ;)

2. Naked Shower Gel from LUSH

I have never really gotten into the LUSH trend, but I really want to start soon! I love how they use good ingredients and focus on sustainability, so I definitely need to try one of their naked shower gels soon (because it doesn't use packaging!!!!).

3. Biore Self Heating Charcoal Mask

A girl in my dorm had this mask, and it looked pretty cool! Biore always has some great products, so I will totally be trying this out soon!

4. e.l.f Heart Defensor Highlight Palette

I usually use the same boring makeup products every day (and I have yet to introduce a highlight). This palette from e.l.f. looks perfect for me, so I will defs need to try it out!

5. Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette

I have never been one to like eyeshadow palettes (I like to buy individual colors that make my eyes pop), but this one looks too good to pass up! There are a lot of colors I would like to use (especially the neutrals), and the packaging is amazingggg too!

6. Any lip product from Fenty Beauty

I have heard a lot about this brand (whether it be good or bad), so I feel like I need to try it out. The lipsticks and lipglosses all look good, so I definitely will start there!

DIY: Simple Window Clings!

Hey cupcakes! Today I have another DIY post for you all, and this one is super easy and fun! :) I personally LOVE to decorate my window with any sort of window cling (I have a set for each holiday haha), so I wanted to share how you all can make your very own window clings! :D Let's get started!

What You Need:
-Tulip Puffy Paint (I have only ever used this brand for this, but you could try others too!)

-Some sort of template on paper (optional if you want to free hand)
-Large Ziploc bag

What To Do:
1. Figure out what window cling you want to make. Print out this template onto computer paper.

2. Open the Ziploc bag and place the template inside. Zip shut.

3. Using the puffy paint, trace the template (or free hand your design if you want!).

4. Allow the paint to dry for the full amount. I personally would wait even longer just to be safe!!

5. Peel off your window cling from your ziploc bag and place onto your window! :)

7 Easy Ways to Reduce Your Waste!

Hey cupcakes! Today I will be writing a post that is a little different for The Chic Cupcake. However, I think it is super important, so I hope you all learn something! Sustainability is very critical to keeping our planet, and I have learned a lot about it in college. I wanted to share some of my favorite ways to reduce waste, so let's get started!

1. Use reusable shopping bags - This is honestly super easy! Instead of getting those plastic bags that are bad for the environment, purchase a couple high quality reusable totes to use instead.

2. Reuse jars for storage - This is something I will definitely be doing in my apartment over the summer; all you need to do is save any jars that you eat the food out of (like pasta sauce, pickles, etc.) and reuse them as storage. You can even bring them to your grocery store that sells bulk food to purchase healthy ingredients without using any plastic!

3. Start composting - It isn't as hard as you would think, and it makes you feel really good about being sustainable! :)

4. Make the conscious effort to recycle everything possible - I know a lot of states still don't have recycling centers (which is honestly terrible), but if you have recycling where you live try to recycle as much as you can! I am an avid recycler and there are still things that I never knew you could recycle. Recycle as much as possible!

5. Don't use plastic straws - When you order at a restaurant, ask the waiter to not put a plastic straw in your drink. :) (Psstt your drink will still taste the same!)

6. USE A WATER BOTTLE - I honestly get so angry at people who still use plastic water bottles every day instead of just buying a water bottle and refilling it. First of all, it is cheaper to just buy the one water bottle and secondly, everyone knows how bad plastic water bottles are for the planet!! This is the easiest thing for you to do to be sustainable, so I totally recommend!

7. Find sustainable alternatives to textbooks - College in general creates a lot of paper waste from notes to worksheets to loose leaf textbooks. Try to be as sustainable as possible by finding an online version of your textbooks (or at least make sure to recycle all of your paper at the end of the semester)!

What are your tips and tricks for being more sustainable? Comment down below your suggestions and don't forget to follow The Chic Cupcake! :D


P.S. Every little bit counts in saving the planet, so I challenge YOU to do your share! <3
