Spring Fashion & Beauty Wish List

It’s the last week of my no spend month and I am counting down the hours until Friday because it’s pay day AND March 1st, which will officially end my two month no shopping challenge!! I would love to treat myself to a few things to celebrate my hard work (without breaking the bank) so I’ve compiled my spring fashion and beauty wish list. 1. Kosas Tinted Face Oil Foundation: I’ve heard so many great things about this brand and after watching Tati’s first impressions video I was influenced to give this a try. Technically, this is no longer on my beauty wish list because my bridal makeup artist gifted me one! (I modeled for her inaugural makeup class a couple weekends ago.
