The 100th Post: My Facial Routine

A while ago, I posted my last blog entry, noting that it was my 99th post. While I don't think a "Facial Routine" blog post is particularly groundbreaking, I did think it would be fun to do something like this for my 100th post. I struggled with acne ever since I was about 15 years old. Back then, my acne woes consisted of tiny whiteheads dispersed across my entire forehead and down the sides of my face. They call that the magical T-Zone. Now that I'm...

May Makeup Favorites

I do not pretend to be a beauty blogger or even a person well-versed in beauty. I'm simply an amateur with an obsession for makeup and trying new products. I watch a lot of beauty vloggers, read a lot of beauty blogs, but admittedly, I can't say I know many pointers. I do what works for me and my face, devoid of any well-known beauty rules. That's the disclaimer portion. Now, for my May Makeup favorites. BARE MINERALS PRIME TIME BB PRIMER-CREAM I've been using this primer...

Bedroom Makeover: In Depth

I recently blogged about my latest apartment project, so most of this post is a rehashing of my initial entry. You can find the before and after photos of my Bedroom Makeover HERE. And while that post suffices, I then walked away from it and thought I'd like to go a little more in-depth and explain where each piece is from. I'll start off my saying that as I've grown older, neutrals have become really important to me. (This coming from a girl whose childhood bedroom walls were sponge-painted purple and mint green.) But...

A Very Vibrant Weekend

Any holiday there is -- Halloween, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day -- is basically an excuse to DIY. Oh, it's Valentine's Day? I shall craft hand-made V-day cards with cute sayings on them for all my friends. St. Patrick's Day? It's the perfect excuse to bake anything.that's.green. But Easter? Easter is intuitively DIY-ish. After all, Easter's "thing" is to dye eggs. Does it get any better than that? So of course, myself and my DIY-savvy friends just HAD to turn it into an event -- the...

Bedroom Makeover

The worst decision I made while moving into my first out-of-college apartment was compromising in areas I shouldn't have. Looking back, I feel like I splurged in the wrong places. I used all means possible to make sure my living room was well, livable (aside from the couch that I still sort of kind of despise) but I didn't pay much mind to my bedroom. When I moved in, I brought a bedside table with me into my bedroom. And that's about it. There were two...

February Favorites

February has been one of my favorite months so far, not just in 2014 (because really there's only two to pick from), but just in the past few months that have gone by. It was the first time in a while that I've felt really up and spirited about the particular season. During the first few weeks of February, I was quite obsessed with all things Valentine's Day. All of my manicures were heart-themed, I went on DIY-ing sprees, and most notably, I baked pink...
