Sunday Funday 

I love Sundays! They are the best for exploring because the city isn’t to packed and a great Sunday just gets the week started off right! 

Here’s my Sunday selfie ūüėā I was super excited to try the Kat Von D Alchemist pallet because it looks like unicorn tears and I don’t know how I lived this long without it.

We started off the day at NBC studios. I have never been inside but I’m obsessed with Jimmy Fallon so I had to see it lol. 


Next we went to Bar 65 for the best cocktail I have had thus far ūüíó the Black Orchid. It was the cocktail of my soul.  


The view was amazing and the weather was perfect.

After that we went shopping for a bit and then ended out day at The Smith. The mac and cheese was out of this world!

Over all it was a pretty great Sunday ‚̧ԳŹ

6 Beauty Essentials to Try 2016

Six Beauty Essentials to try in 2016, AdriaJHill.com

  1. Laura Mercier Undercover Pot Concealer  This concealer is the best. Two concealers and a setting powder all in one convenient package! The creamy concealer is for the under eye area (I also use it around my nose and mouth) and the dryer concealer is for pimples or scars. Underneath the two concealers is a fantastic translucent powder. This packaging  is also ideal for travel and touch-ups. Six Essentials to try in 2016, AdriaJHill.com, Laure Mercier Undercover pot duo concealer, Amore Pacific CC Cushion Compact, MAC Warm Neutral Times 15 palette, MAC Whirl Lipstick, Mario Badescu Rosewater spray, Clinique Pretty Easy eye liner pen
  2. Amore Pacific CC Cushion Compact I have been using this foundation faithfully for nearly a year! It provides long-lasting flawless coverage, Prevents skin irritation and reduces redness!

NYE OOTD- Fashion +

Adriajhill NYE OOTD Fashion Plus

I am plus sized and I love fashion, especially shoes and handbags. If I could spend every dime I have on shoes and handbags I would! In my mind they are the most loyal items in my closet. I could loose 10 pounds or gain 30 and they would still remain true to me. Above I put together a plus sized outfit inspired by NYE, I kept it affordable but splurged major or the shoes! I would love to know what you think, what items do you splurge on?! Are you plus sized? Where do you like to shop? Tell me everything!

I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays!

5 Favorite Reds for the Holidays

MAC Ruby Woo, Tom Ford Ruby Rush, Kat Von D Outlaw, OCC Lip tar Stalker, Nars Lana

Tis the season for red lipstick! Personally I think any occasion is the perfect occasion for some Ruby Woo, but if you are usually a nude lip lover, the holidays are your chance to try something new! Red lipstick can be one of the most difficult makeup products to buy, mostly because there are so many options! But with just a little direction you can find the perfect red for you. Its pretty simple, If you have a lot of pink/peach in your skin, go for a more blue based red. Anything in the Ruby family would work. If you have more olive in your skin, or if you have darkness under the eyes or around the mouth go for a more orange-red. If you are not concerned with redness or darkness then lucky you! You can go either way!

I have compiled a list of my favorite Holiday Red lipsticks.
1. My all time must have red lipstick – MAC¬†Ruby Woo¬†$16. its bright, it’s matte, and its the perfect classic Marilyn Monroe red.

2. Tom Ford- Ruby Rush $50, honestly Its pretty close in color to Ruby Woo, and it costs three times as much, but this lipstick is so smooth and so soft, but still stays in place that its totally worth the extra $$$

3.Kat Von D- Outlaw $19, If your looking for an all day won’t stray kinda red, this one is for you. you can wear it to work, then to dinner, then to drinks and it will still be¬†perfect. Downside, yes it is a bit drying so probably not the best for everyday

4. OCC Lip Tar- Stalker $18, this is great for the advanced makeup warriors, its smooth creamy consistency is perfect for precise application, but be warned! if you use to much it will bleed all over your face.

5. NARS- Lana $32, this lipstick is fun! its slightly more orange, so do be careful if you are in the middle of a breakout, but its bright warm red color is perfect to warm up a cold wither day.

So what do you think? what is your favorite red lipstick, leave it in the comments below and I’ll check it out. Or you can come talk to me on Twitter¬†or Instagram!

Happy Holidays,
