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....

Three Fall Style Ideas

Fall changes everything when it comes to fashion. It's the appropriate time for adorable ankle booties and comfy, cozy sweaters. Because this time of the year is one of my favorite seasons to dress for, I've compiled three autumnal looks below that you should feel free to emulate or draw inspiration from. Look #1: I think it's the berry lipstick that really pulls this look together. It might be one degree too matchy-matchy (which I assure you is not my taste at all) but I think the...

What Did I Think Of My October Ipsy Bag?

  What did I think of my October Ipsy glam bag? It was a great mix of products I loved, products I didn't care for, and products that pleasantly surprised me. (Side note: Apologies for the lateness of this post. Would you believe me if I confessed it's literally been crazy lately? Thanks.) MICA BEAUTY COSMETICS SHIMMER POWDER I'm going to be honest (aren't I always?) I wasn't too excited about getting this shadow in my Ipsy bag. The shade I received is called "Reluctance." I tried it...

Mini Haul: Sephora & Drug Store Make-Up Haul

There's been a few beauty products I've had my eye on lately and since I've been in desperate need of a restock, my recent trips to Sephora and Walgreen's have been way overdue. Here's a look at my "mini" beauty haul of makeup, haircare products, and more. BENEFIT POREFESSIONAL PRIMER  Missglamorazzi (aka Ingrid Nilsen) raves about this product in so many of her YouTube videos, so it's been on my radar for a while now. While I'm really happy with my current Bare Minerals primer, I can't wait...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

  BEAUTY Not everything beauty-related has to be a product. Honestly, I'm just as obsessed with makeup brushes and the proper way to care for makeup as much as I am the actual product itself. That's why I love this blog post about how to properly clean your tools.   HOLIDAY Is there any better combination than a pumpkin and a donut? I'm pretty sure this picture proves it: There's not. When I get around to visiting the pumpkin patch, I'm definitely breaking out my pastel paints and using this...

Reasons To Be Obsessed with Lucite

CURRENT OBSESSION: Lucite. Is there anything more classy than lucite furniture? It looks nice, it's not jarring, and it's guaranteed to be the chicest feature in your living room.  {Lucite end table} While I don't own anything lucite, I quite literally have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to curating my gorgeously transparent wants. (The above end table is DEFINITELY included in that collection.) It's hard to put my finger on what exactly is so attractive about lucite furniture, but I think it's the illusion of negative space. Lucite...

What Are My Favorite Meditation Apps?

Nowadays, everyone wants to know what's on your phone. After all, there are trends and fads in the app culture just as much as there are in pop music. I have a ton of apps on my phone ranging from photo-editing apps to ones designed to help you meditate. Since my daily schedule is so full, I don't have much time to do yoga. This is where my iPhone comes in. Almost every night, I get my meditation fill by opening up one of these four apps. I've narrowed down...
