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...

Happy Father’s Day

My dad. Aside from being the only person I know who has the capability to grow and maintain the world's most epic mustache for the past 40 something years (yes, he's had that caterpillar since his twenties), you also have the inexplainable ability to make me love you through all your quirks and qualities that drive me insane. The fact that you still call Facebook "Spacebook." The fact that just yesterday you tried to reference the concept of using GPS but instead you called my...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

  I've been less preoccupied with the idea of summer and more preoccupied with what makes me me. Call me dramatic if you want, but I'm currently reading Man's Quest for Meaning by Viktor Frankl and it is difficult to take in without getting emotional or philosophical. Inherently, it makes you question who you are, what you are doing, and what your purpose is. With that being said, I tried to highlight things this week that aren't curated with a theme in mind. I curated them because...

What Did I Think of my May Ipsy Bag?

I quite literally screamed out loud when this Ipsy bag arrived in the mail. I mean, just check out that bag. It could not BE any cuter, to quote Chandler Bing. Initially, I was quite pumped about the tapered blending brush and the Klorane eye patches because I kneel before the holy Klorane. (I love their work.) Keep reading to check out my review! Chella Eyebrow Color Pencil #NotAFan. Sorry, I'm not one to beat around the bush. But in all seriousness, I am sure this is a...
