Apartment Design Tips for Renters

In light of recent events, I feel like I'm becoming the Queen of Moving. As of February 2015,  if the current lease I'm negotiating works out, I'll have moved three times in a matter of only six months. (You think I'd become more skilled at the art of moving, but honestly, I find it just as daunting and also find myself just as unprepared as ever.) With these tentative moving plans taking priority right now, I've been thinking a lot about apartment design and decor. I've...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

For this week's Pinterest Highlights, I've rounded up my favorites from the Home Decor, Style, Beauty, and Food categories. Item #1 is an adorable "You are my lobster" cross-stitch, which can be found for $20 on Etsy. If you're a big Friends fan like I am, you'll be able to appreciate Phoebe's famous philosophy in cross stitch format. Item #2 is a neutral black outfit from Look Book that I'm planning on recreating later this week. Item #2 is a Nars lipstick in the shade Scarlet Empress. It's available from Gifts.com for only $26. I'm OBSESSED. Moving on to Item...

What Did I Think of My December Ipsy Bag?

What did I think of my December Ipsy bag? In a word: Meh. I definitely like each of these products as separate entities, but as a "glam bag," I was completely unimpressed. Pray tell, exactly what is exciting about a facial cleanser, hair spray, eyeshadow, and mascara? That doesn't really scream "glamorous" to me. Even so, each of these products are really great. BWC Facial Cleanser I was beyond hesitant to try this cleanser because I'm overprotective when it comes to my skin. Especially when my skin...

My Year in Review: Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015!

When the clock strikes midnight tonight, we'll officially say goodbye to the year 2014. We'll put both the struggles and the wins behind us and move forward because that is the only choice we have. I don't know about you, but I choose to move forward happily. 2014 was full of tons of monumental events and more importantly, changes. There were ups and downs, as every year has, but each one has propelled me into this current moment, so I can't help but think they...

My Holiday Highlights

Long gone are the Christmases when my sister and I gallivanted down the stairs to a mountain (or two) of gifts. Now, with me in my twenties and my sister in her thirties, gift-giving in our family has changed. Our presents are now few and usually more meaningful and purposeful. (Let's just say Christmas currency is basically Trader Joe's gift cards. Everybody has to eat, am I right?!) Here are a few of my holiday highlights: Okay, so I specifically said I didn't want anything like this --...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

Home Decor I've been on the hunt for a light-up, battery-powered hashtag sign for a couple of weeks now. This one pictured below is over $200 and while it's exactly what I was looking for, I found a more inexpensive version at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for under $30! Fashion As the weather gets colder, I'm constantly thinking of ways to stay warmer (and also keep my signature style). I love this plaid flannel because it has sweatshirt material built into the hood, so you know it's super cozy. Fitness I'm...
