Favorite Spring Flower Arrangements

  Spring changes the game and most significantly, my mood. I have been an orb of positivity lately, filled with a brand new vibrancy and energy, all thanks to the weather. I wasn't able to travel home this past weekend for Mother's Day, so my parents made the drive to Hoboken and spent the day here with me on Saturday. We dedicated our time to delicious meals and redecorating the back garden patio of my house. Before their visit, I woke up early to meditate and then I...

5 Tips on How to Be and Stay Happy

{Photo Sources: Daily Makeover, Nike, La Route de La For Me, Tumblr, Instagram} Lately, I've been thinking and journaling a lot about happiness. What does it mean? What does it truly entail? And why is to so different for every individual person? Happiness is something I struggle with, as I tend to get frustrated and flustered when things don't turn out what my mind's eye considers to be "perfect." So I've been meditating a lot and really contemplating the keys to happiness. I asked myself: What...

A Happy Mother’s Day Note!

  I recently read a very wise Tumblr post that detailed all of the things your mother will never tell you. I wish I had held onto my screenshot of it, but since being found, it has gotten deleted. I'll try to work from memory. It said things like, "You made her cry" and "You hurt her feelings often." It said positive experiences too, like, "She worried about you constantly" and "Always thought of you." While I'm not a mother, two of the most important people in...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

It's finally starting to feel like Spring on the East Coast and I have the allergies to prove it. The past couple of days have been harmoniously sunny and warm, therefore there's been a lot of outdoor excursions, visits to Pier A, and of course, outdoor brunching situations. Here are some of the things I've been loving this week: Nothing says Spring to me like a vase of vivacious white tulips. Sure, they are not the most vibrant flower choice out there, but I just love the...

What Did I Think About My April Ipsy Bag?

   I was so excited to get my April 2015 Ipsy bag last month because it was filled with a bunch of products I knew I'd use on a daily basis. Everything inside my bag was really practical and arrived at the perfect moment. I had been in need of a new moisturizer, what with the drastic change in the weather and all, and of course, I'm always delighted by the prospect of a new mascara. The theme of April's bag was Beautifully Bohemian, which I...

How to Achieve the Perfect At-Home Blowout

Hi, I'm Stephanie and I have flat hair. Apparently. I threw that "apparently" in there because I used to never have to worry about my hair; I had the most perfect tresses in the entire world. If I blow-dried it, it looked fantastic. If I slept with it in a wet bun post-shower, it highlighted the natural waves the next morning. I could let it air dry and it would be beautiful. And above all else, it had a natural volume to it. At 21, my hair changed....
