On to the beauty in affordable fashion and beauty…

I am not a beauty expert but I do love makeup and have tried many, many different products over the years. What I don’t love is paying department store prices for makeup.

And why should I (or you) when there are so many amazing drugstore products that rival and surpass that of their department store counterparts. These are the Holy Grail drug store products that I swear by. The absolute best of the best drugstore makeup from places like Target, Walmart, Amazon and ULTA.

1. OLD NAVY FALL FASHION PREVIEW 2019

This Old Navy post was my first “viral” post and I can see why. The styles this past fall at Old Navy wear just s dang good! So many cute transitional pieces, great basics and they totally nailed it in the denim department. I was so impressed with the quality as well. 

Old Navy is best known for its basics and continues to kill it in this category. I’m equally impressed with the denim this season after finding it a little lackluster for the past year or so. The quality is so good and the styles are very on-trend.

Surprisingly, quite a few of these styles are still available, and stay tuned for an updated Old Navy post coming in the next week!
