Surprise: I’ve Moved!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed a recent change in scenery (although to be honest, my bedroom set-up is nearly exactly the same). Surprise! I've moved. How long I'll stay in this new apartment is uncertain (in fact, in general, it feels like a temporary situation), but regardless, I'm having fun sprucing up my new space and breathing some "me" into it. As I'm still lacking in furniture (a couch, a kitchen table, and chairs), I don't think it's yet time to reveal the...

DIY: Chocolate Hazelnut Chai Latte Recipe

I haven't posted much food content in the past, but if you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that I love cooking and baking. (I didn't necessarily say I was great at it. I'm more of a total amateur who likes the allure of the kitchen but doesn't quite understand it.) I recently fell in love with this hot drink recipe and decided to share.

Look #2 is basically the...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

  BEAUTY After perusing DIY skincare routines on Instagram, I came upon witch hazel and instantly decided to try it out. I hopped on the witch hazel bandwagon about a month ago, but I've yet to try this DIY brightening toner. I think I'll give it a go this upcoming weekend. HOME DECOR When it comes to decor, I'm not huge on color. My last apartment was gray, white, black, and beige, just to give you a reference point. But I've kind of fallen in love with this mustard...

Lipstick Shades Perfect for Fall & Winter

Fall and winter makeup are completely different beasts. Skin dries out, flakes, and craves extra attention and moisture. It's not just the way you apply makeup and take care of your skin that changes; style changes, too. When I think of fall and winter makeup, darker shades come to mind, particularly with lips. Keeping this in mind, I rounded up shades I think are perfect for these chillier months. ...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

BEAUTY This GlamGlow product has gotten rave reviews as far as I've seen. It's available at Sephora, but it's $69. I'm not sure if I can justify paying so much money for a face mask, even if tons of Pinterest users proclaim its awesomeness. {Glam Glow super-mud clearing treatment mask} HOLIDAY What better way to get into the Thanksgiving spirit than with these festive gourds? {Gourd tealight holders} FASHION The "Vans" style shoe is making quite the fashionable comeback. These are from Anthropologie and they come in black and silver glitter as well....
