Weekly Reading

After a long Thanksgiving weekend, I’ve truly loved taking some time to relax and enjoy the small things around me. Thanksgiving really kicks off the holiday season here in the states, and it’s filled with love and gratitude. I’m getting ready to head into a new week and wanted to share some articles around the…

Vacation Hair: Cornrows

I’m not a big fan of flying, but the idea of going on a week long vacay has me ready to pack my bags in an instant. I’ll be heading to Jamaica in a couple of weeks, and I’ve been going back and forth on what to do with my hair. My last vacation was…

Pure Romance

As I’m sure you all know, it takes a lot of makeup to show on camera. Sometimes I struggle with capturing on camera what I see with the naked eye. So last night, I packed on a ton of makeup to create an old Hollywood romantic look using lots of fuchsia and brown tones.  After…

My Weekly Rituals

There are a few things that I do every week in honor of upkeep and sanity. I’ll admit, I could do a better job at taking care of myself (couldn’t we all) but these things make me feel like….me. 1. Change my nail color: I’ve said this before, painting my own nails gives me a…

New Brow Routine

I’ve had several ways of doing my brows over the past few years. For a long time, I would wet an angled brush and dip it into a dark brown MAC eye shadow (the name wore off and I didn’t know what it was). It was a fool proof way for me to have perfect…

Where the Hell I’ve Been

I try really hard not to apologize for not blogging, but since I took such a long hiatus I feel it’s necessary. Most of my readers are bloggers themselves and can co-sign that blogging consistently is a full time job! I fell into a rut where I wasn’t feeling very inspired, or very happy with…

Back to Basics: Skincare

Lately I’ve been taking a closer look at my skin and formulating a new plan for it. Being a beauty junkie, I try a lot of skincare products and have been mixing up my cleansers on any given day. I’ve noticed that my skin texture isn’t very smooth and I depend on primers to fill…

Kyshadow

Yes, I’m 30 and I am purchasing Kylie Cosmetics products left and right. After really loving the lip kit more than I thought I would, I fought the online masses to get a KyShadow Bronze palette. When I saw the palette for the first time, I really liked the earth tones. The colors seemed like…

Aging according to Allure

Hey guys, I know I’ve been MIA for the past month. Instead of apologizing too much, I’m going to share a video with you about aging that is really inspiring. I hope you all are enjoying the last few weeks of Summer : )

New Video Alert!

Hey guys! There’s a new video up with Andrea and I talking about fashion and beauty trends that we are O-V-E-R. We had fun with this one, so check it out!

200!

This post is to simply thank each and every one of you that follows my blog! No matter what the number, I love being a part of such a cool community. Reading your blogs and sharing my favorite things with you is a gift : )  

Kylie Lip Kit Review

So…. I did it. I broke down and purchased a Kylie Lip Kit. I had been putting this off for a variety of reasons. On the one hand I have such an appreciation for artists that have been in the industry for a long time and after perfecting their craft are now making products that…
