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....

Top 4 Favorite Bedtime Teas

People are befuddled and tend to feel bad for me when I mention I don't drink coffee. This admission usually garners a flabbergasted expression, oftentimes accompanied by a jaw drop, and a pathetic, "Why not?" I don't care for the taste. But tea, I could drink all day! I've rounded up my four favorite teas to drink right before bedtime. Some contain healing, sleep-inducing powers and others do not, but all the same, there's nothing that relaxes me more and sets me up for a good night's sleep...

What Did I Think of My January Ipsy Bag?

I had super high hopes for my January 2015 glam bag from Ipsy, as it was full of a lot of products I was really enthusiastic about trying. In retrospect, I'd say it was a pretty big hit, as I enjoyed four out of the five products. Nice job, Ipsy, nice job! Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream Anything with avocado on the packaging instantly grabs my attention and curiosity, so I was excited to try this Nourish Organic eye cream. I don't use eye cream products often, but...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

It's finally Friday! I can't complain because Juno had me working from home the first two days of the week -- so I had a four-day "vacay" -- but all the same, I'm insanely happy for the weekend. The move is tomorrow and I'm anticipating a rough night of sleep, as I can't wait to be settled into my new place. Here are some Pins that kept me inspired this week: Taking fashion photos is usually a one-woman job, but when I came across this stylish mother-daughter duo,...

How to Dress Stylishly for Winter Storm Juno

  Greetings from Suffolk County, New York, where Storm Juno left us drowning in 22 inches of freezing cold snow. Thanks to the remote nature of my job (ah, the perks of being a Web Editor) I've been home the past two days, working from the comfort and warmth of my living room. But today it's back to work, so I'm bundling up and schlepping myself into Manhattan for the final days of my Long Island-to-NYC commute. Here are my winter essentials to not only avoid...
