I CANCELLED MY IPSY SUBSCRIPTION

Guys, I wasn't going to admit this on social media or for that matter, anywhere on the Internet, but I did it. I cancelled my subscription to Ipsy. Ahhh, don't hate me! Don't stick me in a pillory in the town square while furious townsfolk throw tomatoes and publicly ridicule me. I've literally spent the past year and a half talking up this makeup subscription to every human being I've come across. (Seriously, Ipsy, where's my commission check? Do you know how many subscribers my highly-coveted recommendation has...

How to Wear Denim in Summer

                                                              Who says you can't rock denim in summer? 2015 is changing that as all over New York City, I see variations of denim. "Denim" doesn't mean just a pair of jeans anymore. It could mean a chambray shirt, a playsuit, a dress, shorts...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

I would probably describe myself with the same adjectives as I would have when I was a teenager. But now, I embody them in different ways. It's shocking how much people can change internally without even noticing. I hadn't even realized how different I look, act, and feel until I really turned inward. Style, lifestyle, food, beauty, and entertainment have always interested me since I was young but my perspective on each of them now has changed significantly. My thoughts on style, decor, and even my food choices have transformed...

My Summer 2015 Makeup Essentials

  If you are one of those people that doesn't alter that beauty routine for the summer months, then you're either a) doing it wrong or b) graced with a flawless complexion that allows you to go relatively bare-faced at all times. If you fall into the category of the former, then it's time to take notes because Lord knows I could never get away with my winter beauty regimen throughout June-August. My summertime beauty routine goes as such: Smashbox primer, NARS concealer in custard (although, admittedly,...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

  I'm back on my egg kick. This particular way of serving eggs has really caught my eye. It's an an avocado, hummus, and egg toast recipe from Two Peas in Their Pod and I can't wait to buy some grape tomatoes and more avocados at the local market so I can get prepare the yummiest breakfast for Sunday brunch. This Chiffon wedding dress really caught my eye on Pinterest this week. I'm not even thinking about getting married, but I happened to see it while I was scrolling and I...

What Did I Think of my June Ipsy Bag?

Is it just me or did June quite literally grow wings and fly by? I swear we were all just posting pictures of Justin Timberlake's frosted-tipped hair with the words "It's gonna be May" Photoshopped onto it. Next thing I know, BAM! It's July and I'm a week late into posting my June Ipsy glam bag review. (Whoops! I blush.) Dr. Brandt Skincare: Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner This exfoliating mask by Dr. Brant skin is described as "gentle" and meant to "extract blackheads." It is supposed to...

My First Real Trip to Central Park

I may be a born-and-raised New Yorker, but I'm still new to the whole "living in the city" thing. Every day, I'm still working on creating my pockets, as I've mentioned in a previous blog post. My mind still has to go through that 30-second thought process of "Okay, am I on the East side? Is this upper or lower? If I'm going to 28th from here, then that's uptown, right?!?" I feel confident that one day I'll just know, but until then, I am still busy...
