Four For You!

Hello, loves!

Today I have another round of Four For You!  Here are some of my latest obsessions:

1. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera

It’s here!  I have been dying to get my hands on one of these instant cameras for a while now, so when I found one on sale for just $70, I knew it was time to pounce!  This little guy will definitely come in handy on my vacation this month, and will also help me capture some cool snaps of my year abroad.  Side note: I haven’t actually used the camera yet because I totally forgot to order film with it (lol) but I can’t wait to try it out!

2. Baublebar Emoticharm Bracelets

I am head over heels for these emoji-inspired bracelets — how cute are they?!  I got one of these (the heart-eyed one) for my birthday and was so obsessed with it, I decided to order two more (the kissy-face and the smirk) to have a little set!  They’re so fun, and I got them on sale for just $10 each.  These are definitely my fave pieces of jewelry so far this summer!

3. Revlon Nail Polish in #771 “Clear”

Okay, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect base/top coat for a while now, and I’m happy to say I’ve finally found it!  I cannot get over this Revlon polish — it’s truly a lifesaver!  I can use it both under and over my nail polish without a problem, and it dries super fast, so doing my nails no longer requires setting aside half of my day to allow enough dry time (thank God!).  It also keeps my nails looking super shiny, which I love, and it doesn’t get any weird creases or bubbles.  It helps my nails stay chip-free longer, too!  Ugh, I just can’t say enough how much I love this — and for $4.99, you can’t beat it!

4. L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Lipstick in #600 “Doutzen’s Nude”

Confession: I 100% copied my older sister on this one!  She had this lipstick for a while and I totally fell in love with it, so I bought one of my own…and I’m so happy I did!  It’s the perfect subtle light pink shade, especially for my fair skin, and it’s great for the summer months when I keep my makeup lighter.  I can swipe this on quickly for a natural look and be good to go!  It also doesn’t dry my lips out, like some lipsticks, which is obviously also a plus!

So there you go…four for you, Brenn Coco, you go, Brenn Coco!

XOXO,

Sunnies Side Up

Hello, loves!

Today I’m sharing my top picks for one of my favorite accessories — sunnies!  As someone with eyes that are ultra sensitive to sunlight, I know the importance of picking the perfect shades to protect my eyes and keep me lookin’ fresh.  Here are a few pairs that I’ve been lusting after!

Quay Fleur Round Cat-Eye Sunglasses

I adore these statement shades from Quay!  The metal geometric cut-outs are unique and fun without being too over the top.  I personally love them in black, but they also come in gold if you’re looking for a bit of shine!  Buy them here at Urban Outfitters.

Zara Striped Sunglasses

While I usually go for classic black frames, I’ve been on the hunt for some patterned sunglasses to spice it up.  These striped ones from Zara definitely caught my eye.  The black and white pattern is versatile and fun!  Snag them here.

Forever 21 Oversized Round Sunglasses

I have wanted to try round-framed sunnies for a while now, but always back out at the last minute!  This pair from Forever 21, however, just might be the one to break the cycle.  They’re simple and chic, and only $5.90 — I’m sold!  Pick them up here.

Steve Madden S5575 Sunglasses

Tortoiseshell is one of the most iconic and timeless prints when it comes to sunglasses, which means it can be hard to make your turtle-y shades stand out.  Luckily, Steve Madden knows how to help a trendsetter out — these tortoiseshell shades are basically ombré, so they’ll make a statement for sure.  Grab a pair here.

I hope you love love love these shades as much as I do!  Now snag one of these pairs, or use them as inspiration to discover your own signature shades for the summer — happy shopping!

XOXO,

Brenna

Four For You!

Hello, loves!

I’m back today with the second round of Four For You!  I have found myself reaching for these items nonstop throughout the past week, and I simply can’t get enough of them.

1. Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Perfume

_DSC0031

I have had this perfume for just a little while now, and the honeymoon phase is still going strong!  This scent is a blend of violet, sandalwood, & vanilla (according to the description on sephora.com!) and is truly magical.  Above all, it’s mature and classic, which is exactly what I want in a signature scent!

2. Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner

_DSC0035

I am VERY picky about eyeliner, and even when I try new ones out, I somehow always find my way back to Maybelline.  This ink pen is super user-friendly, and lasts so long without smudging!  Perfect for a sophisticated, everyday cat eye.

3. Cake Batter ChapStick

_DSC0039

While I tend to gravitate towards minty lip balms, there’s something about this (limited edition!) flavor that I’ve just been loving.  I’ll admit, this was a total impulse buy at the checkout line in Target, but I have absolutely no regrets!

4. Mint Swarovski Alex and Ani Bracelet

_DSC0047

I seriously adore this bracelet!  It’s delicate and gorgeous, and as far as I’m concerned, you can’t go wrong with this minty-blue color.  I will definitely be donning this bangle a lot during spring and summer!

So there you are — four for you, Brenn Coco, you go, Brenn Coco!

XOXO,

Brenna
