Beauty Inspiration: GuGu Mbatha-Raw's 'Elle Magazine' Look

via Hello Beautiful

This month, GuGu Mbatha-Raw is featured on Elle Magazine's Women in Hollywood issue, and her cover look is stunning. Her look was not only crafted beautifully but also toned down and simplified against the cover's pale blue backdrop. Everything about it alluded to Mbatha-Raw's natural beauty. Her little need for accessories and makeup no doubt persuaded me to open up the November issue and read further. Mbatha-Raw's cover is a flawless nod to the simple and alluring makeup look, which is why I'm looking towards it for my fall/winter beauty inspiration.

The Best Bold Colors To Wear This Winter

via Brit

With the first cold front having moved into my area already, I've been daydreaming about bold, dark colors and fluffy fur coats. Since fur coats are pretty pricey and generally more difficult to get my hands on, I opted for some fun beauty products to liven up my winter palettes. When it comes to my eyeshadow, I generally go with a neutral (gold/brown) smokey eye. Not only does it enhance my eyes, but it also leaves room for a bold lip if I'm feeling particularly feisty.

It's so hard to believe that the holidays are almost here—I think it finally hit me when my boyfriend asked me to send him the link to my Pinterest page for gift ideas. Is it really that time of the year already?

Lovelyish Gift Guide: For Your 90s-Nostalgic Friend

I am definitely a child of the 90s—I watched SNICK every Saturday night, participated in sleepover trading of Lip Smackers and other 90's girl beauty essentials, and read Goosebumps way past my bedtime. And every holiday season, I definitely get a little nostalgic when I think about receiving my Super Nintendo, watching The Nightmare Before Christmas until my VHS copy wore out, and jamming my Hanson Christmas album until my CD scratched. So if you or a friend are missing those 90's childhood memories this holiday season, these gifts are sure to tug at the heartstrings in all the right ways.

I actually remember learning how to braid hair by using my trolls! These ugly-cute little guys definitely had their own little place on my windowsill. How cute would these Good Luck Trolls be as little stocking stuffers?

If you or a loved one has ever wished for the ability to time travel, this 90's Time Machine Kit is the next best thing. This kit includes an assortment of items that will spark happy 90's memories. Each kit is a mystery—it might include some sweet (or sour!) candies, beanie babies, scented pencils, slap bracelets, feather pencils, stickers, postcards, Pogs and a boy band poster.
