A Happy Mother’s Day Note!

  I recently read a very wise Tumblr post that detailed all of the things your mother will never tell you. I wish I had held onto my screenshot of it, but since being found, it has gotten deleted. I'll try to work from memory. It said things like, "You made her cry" and "You hurt her feelings often." It said positive experiences too, like, "She worried about you constantly" and "Always thought of you." While I'm not a mother, two of the most important people in...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

It's finally starting to feel like Spring on the East Coast and I have the allergies to prove it. The past couple of days have been harmoniously sunny and warm, therefore there's been a lot of outdoor excursions, visits to Pier A, and of course, outdoor brunching situations. Here are some of the things I've been loving this week: Nothing says Spring to me like a vase of vivacious white tulips. Sure, they are not the most vibrant flower choice out there, but I just love the...

What Did I Think About My April Ipsy Bag?

   I was so excited to get my April 2015 Ipsy bag last month because it was filled with a bunch of products I knew I'd use on a daily basis. Everything inside my bag was really practical and arrived at the perfect moment. I had been in need of a new moisturizer, what with the drastic change in the weather and all, and of course, I'm always delighted by the prospect of a new mascara. The theme of April's bag was Beautifully Bohemian, which I...

How to Achieve the Perfect At-Home Blowout

Hi, I'm Stephanie and I have flat hair. Apparently. I threw that "apparently" in there because I used to never have to worry about my hair; I had the most perfect tresses in the entire world. If I blow-dried it, it looked fantastic. If I slept with it in a wet bun post-shower, it highlighted the natural waves the next morning. I could let it air dry and it would be beautiful. And above all else, it had a natural volume to it. At 21, my hair changed....

What Did I Think About My March Ipsy Bag?

  Equitance Brightening Serum & Spot Corrector This brightening serum is my jam. You put it on twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, and it goes on so incredibly smoothly. It feels like silk against your face and you can really feel it hydrating your dull, tired skin. Pur~Lisse Gentle Soymilk Cleanser & Makeup Remover I used this twice a day almost every single day in March and I'm absolutely loving the results. It has a soymilk base (combined with Whole Oat and White...

Tried It & Liked It: Fruit-Infused Detox Water

I will hold off on acting like I am the inventor of detox water because I'm hardly the first to blog about it. But I'm so happy I tried out the trendiest fitness trend on Tumblr. This begins a new recurring series on the blog called Tried It & Liked It, where I attempt popular fitness, food, (and whatever else!) trends to see if they live up to all the Internet hype. I was concerned I wasn't drinking enough water, so I did a bit of research...
