What Did I Think About My March Ipsy Bag?

  Equitance Brightening Serum & Spot Corrector This brightening serum is my jam. You put it on twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, and it goes on so incredibly smoothly. It feels like silk against your face and you can really feel it hydrating your dull, tired skin. Pur~Lisse Gentle Soymilk Cleanser & Makeup Remover I used this twice a day almost every single day in March and I'm absolutely loving the results. It has a soymilk base (combined with Whole Oat and White...

Tried It & Liked It: Fruit-Infused Detox Water

I will hold off on acting like I am the inventor of detox water because I'm hardly the first to blog about it. But I'm so happy I tried out the trendiest fitness trend on Tumblr. This begins a new recurring series on the blog called Tried It & Liked It, where I attempt popular fitness, food, (and whatever else!) trends to see if they live up to all the Internet hype. I was concerned I wasn't drinking enough water, so I did a bit of research...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

It's still March and there's a sheet of ice and several inches of snow outside, but you won't find winter-esque photos on this blog. No, I'm much more concentrated on the weather ahead of me: Spring, Summer, I'm looking and talking directly to you. I have this theory that if I keep thinking warm, one day I'll wake up and it'll just be warm. The first thing I've been loving this week is this bamboo cutting board and knife set. It's a super cute way to...

Vacation Essentials: Bring on Spring Break!

In the midst of this ever-present cold front, I'm dreaming of college for one reason: Spring Break. Unfortunately, when you're a grown-up, you don't get a random week off in March, but there IS such a thing as accruing vacation days, and that's essentially the same thing. In the spirit of Spring Break and also in an epic effort to escape this disgusting snow? hail? what is it, even?, I booked a flight to warmer weather. I absolutely cannot wait to leave these 15 degree forecasts...

What Did I Think About My February Ipsy Bag?

I love it when my Ipsy bag fills a void with each product. My February glam bag did just that. "Pencil Me In" Natural Eye Liner Pencil in Amethyst I'd consider myself a collector of liner pencils; I seldom use them in my daily routine but I hoard different colors like crazy. I really like the creamy purple shade of this particular pencil and it's also super convenient that a pencil sharpener is built into the cap. Hey Honey - Take It Off! Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask I'm...

5 Fun Ways to Decorate for Valentine’s Day

{My V-Day decorations/a sneak peek at my new apartment} Valentine's Day is right around the corner and spoiler alert: February 14th is my absolute favorite holiday. There's something about heart-shaped cookies and glitter-covered cupids hanging from the ceiling that I just find completely adorable. My enthusiasm for the holiday has absolutely nothing to do with love, because in reality, I'll be spending my actual Valentine's Day at home, on my couch, watching Parks & Recreation on Netflix. (Not that I'm complaining about that. At all. That sounds absolutely...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

With such bright colors, you'd think I was craving warmer weather or something. The first thing I've been loving this week is fruit detox water. I've always been a fan of lemon water, solely for the taste, not the health benefits, but now, I'm getting more and more into getting creative with my water. This recipe calls for cucumber, lemon, orange, and mint leaves and specializes flushing out toxins and cleansing the digestive track. Rifle through my closet and I doubt you'll find one orange piece of fabric....
