Eyebrow Routine: How to Get Perfect Brows

Let’s talk about brows, baby! In all seriousness, I’ve let this blog go on long enough without addressing my obsession with the perfect brow routine. It’s finally time.   One of the first things people notice about my appearance is usually my eyes and by extension, my eyebrows. With the exception of a few awkward middle-school age years where I won the first prize in unnecessary over-plucking, I have had thick, “statement” brows my entire life. One time on a date, a guy told me I had...

#WFHCOFFEETOUR: BWÉ CAFE, EP. 3

If you live in Hoboken, then you know the unspoken coffee shop rule: BWÉ is the way. That's why episode three of the Work From Home Coffee Tour is all about the Bokes' favorite local spot, located on 11th and Washington. [gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="3817,3818"] Bwe Cafe hits on all of the important aspects a freelancer could potentially want out of a coffee shop: strong Wifi, ample outlets, cute decor, incomparable almond chai lattes, and a bit of outdoor seating. Because it's such a hot spot in...

Portland, Oregon: A Travel Guide

In June, I took the plunge and booked an airplane ticket to Oregon. After months and months of obsessing over pictures of the Oregon coast and its many mountains on Tumblr, I finally decided to make the trip. [gallery size="full" ids="3772,3777,3771"] I shot all of these images on my iPhone 6, but I hope the pictures translate the emotions I felt during my time in Portland. It is hands down my favorite city that I've ever visited, so much so that I hope in the near future I...

#WFHCoffeeTour: Chalait, Ep. 2

Guess who's back? Back again. It's the #WFHCoffeeTour and we're here again with episode two. This week's choice spot? Chalait. This time around, I found myself sitting in the heart of the West Village, sipping a green matcha tea latte and eating an amazing sandwich consisting of unlikely ingredients. Chalait is a quaint, tiny coffee shop on the corner of Christopher Street and W. 4th. Minimalism is its aesthetic; there isn't much in the way of seating--only a few stools bar style and several seats by the windows....

#WFHCoffeeTour: Bibble + Sip, Ep. 1

Hi, Internet. It's been a while. I promise I'm going to update you soon about what's going on with the blog, but until that moment comes, I'm introducing a new, special series. Behold: the Work From Home Coffee Tour hashtag. AKA, what dreams are made of. My lovely friend Vivian Nunez (who you can find here) and I have started the campaign and hashtag #WFHCoffeeTour, under which we are enslaving ourselves to the very daunting task of identifying, reviewing, and Instagramming all of the best work-from-homeable coffee shops in...

Unboxing Rocksbox + Why You Should!

Hey, whatsup, hello. So I'm here today to tell you about Rockbox, AKA my new obsession that is for all intents and purposes is like Netflix but for jewelry. For just $19 a month, you can peruse all of Rockbox's available jewelry and choose an unlimited amount of pieces to "rent." It's also customized, sort of the way Ipsy does things, by providing you with a short style survey in which you answer questions about the types of jewelry you prefer. Based on this survey, Rocksbox...
