Review: Which Dry Shampoo Is My Fave?

It took me a while to jump on the dry shampoo bandwagon. At first, I was really skeptical and even judgmental of people who used dry shampoo -- mainly because I thought it was *super* gross that they didn't wash their hair every day. WELL, little did I know I was damaging and totally drying out my hair with my excessive washings...

Sweater Weather: My Style Staples for Fall 2014

As the last summer-worthy temperatures dwindle away and transition into the mildness of fall, it's bittersweet. After all, autumn is the most stylish season of all -- especially in New York City. In honor of the changing trees and the leaf-peepers that are traveling up the East Coast for a multi-colored show, I've collected my four style staples for Fall 2014. OX BLOOD LIPSTICK. Now this is a trend I'm excited to try. Nothing says "autumn" like a deliciously darkish-purplish lip embellishment. {Forever 21} ANKLE BOOTIES (OBV). You probably already know from...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

BEAUTY My recent purchase of Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray comes upon high recommendation for one of my favorite beauty vloggers Ingrid Nilsen, AKA missglamorrazzi.

So here's to trying something new! {Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray} FASHION This fall, it seems like everybody's all about the ankle booties -- and believe me, there's a reason. I picked up...

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...
