Travel Bucket List

I have been very lucky to have been introduced to traveling at such a young age when I went to go visit my sister in Japan. Even since then I have been compiling a list of places in the world that I want to visit before I die. Traveling is such an adventure and a life lesson all wrapped up in one.  Not only do you get to meet new people, you get to lose yourself in a different world and learn something new about yourself. You don’t have to be rich to travel the world you just have to make it one of your priorities in life. I always joke with my mom that the only reason I work is so I can travel the world. My dream job would have to be to travel the world and discover new places. I have a feeling that this list will forever be changing.

A Mini Tease: Tarte Tartelette Tease Clay Palette

Tarte photo 3

Tarte is one of all time my favorite brand of makeup and they never seem to disappointment me with any of the products that I have tried from them thus far. One of my favorite products that Tarte makes is their eyeshadows because they are richly pigmented and super easy to blend when they are on the eyelid. I love a good color payoff from an eyeshadow and Tarte sure as heck knows what they are doing with theirs. I recently had a Sephora gift card that I want to use up that I had from Christmas. So while I was in line to check out I got sucker into buying something from those sample and mini products pods that are all around you while in line saying “BUY ME! I know you want to!”

The one that was calling my name that day was the Tarte Tartlet Tease Clay Palette. BOY was I glad that this little joy of a palette had jumped into my basket before I had left the store. I had seen this mini palette before and never really had much thought about until I was waiting in line that day. I really don’t know where is palette has been but with the six perfectly pair shades, it sure as heck rocked my world.There are four matte shades and two shimmer shades which are super handy for creating multiple looks. I find that myself reaching for it almost every day and on the plus side it has a very delightful smell, almost like vanilla cupcakes.

The Tease palette is a palette that you will not regret buying yet it is not overly priced. It is the perfect size to travel with whether you are going to your friend’s house for the night or traveling a few months in Europe. I am defiantly taking this with in May when I go to Florida.You can make a daytime look and a night looks with the same palette.When it comes down to it if you have not tried this palette before then you need to. It’s just one of those makeup products that you make a part of your routine and you will miss it if it not there.

Please share what you favorite Tarte product in the comment below. I would love to hear from you.

Much love, Brynn

My “First” Hello

<a href=”https://www.bloglovin.com/blog/18880351/?claim=nkgez8pbnsn”>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

Hellooo!! Welcome to my first blog post on The Wondering Brunette!

I have tried my hand at blogging before and my heart was never really into it then. I had a hard time trying to figuring out where I wanted to take my blog and how much effort I wanted to put in to it. So I took some time to think about where I wanted to take my blog or even if I wanted to continue blogging.So that is where The Wondering Brunette comes in, it’s going to be a lifestyle blog and fresh start for me. This way I can write about all of the things that I am interned in like baking, traveling, makeup, sports, and fashion. Where as my other blog before I tried to just focus on makeup but I just myself not loving makeup that much to just write about it.

    However, what really made me think about taking my blog seriously and actually putting time into my blog is a video that my mom showed me a few weeks back. It was a video of Steve Harvey taking to his studio audience about how you have to take the jump in life if you want to make your dreams happen. I will link the video here. It is a great video to watch and it makes me think that you really do have to take a leap in life if you want to make your dreams come true. I really don’t know where I want this blog to take me but I do want to see where this will take me. You never know what is going to happen in life if you don’t take the opportunity when it is in front of you.

I hope that you will find my blog entertaining and maybe help one of you out by bringing a little joy to your day. I will be posting a new post every Sunday,Wednesday and Friday. Be sure to hit that follow button so you never miss a post. You can also follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and bloglovin’. I also look forward to getting know you, hi yes you, more. That is another reason why I wanted to start a blog is to interact with more people. I hope that you have a wonderful day and make sure to follow so you don’t miss anything.

Much Love, Brynn
