Layers That Your Coat Will Thank You For

Thanksgiving ended not too long ago, and while I’m a huge fan of pumpkin pie, I went with pecan pie this year. All I have to say is, “Where has this been all of my life?” It’s not like it hasn’t been there throughout the years (floating around in holiday conversations and even passing by…

When Your Cute Handbag Turns Into a Not-So-Cute Situation

Gone were the days when I used to stuff my whole life into a handbag without a care in the world. Somewhere along the way, something shifted as I grew older. What had once been a bird’s nest of my cellphone, wallet, makeup bag, granola bars, pens, daily planner, and an iPod, now became just…

Brushing Past the Surface

Makeup brands seem to promise a lot of things on the back of packaging. Such and such product lasts 24 hours! This product is waterproof (sometimes questionable)! Not to mention all of the times a makeup product claims it’s matte, but throughout the day it becomes an oily mess! It’s hard to know the truth…

Shear Fashion Fears: 3 Hauntingly True Stories

It’s Halloween! I couldn’t think of a better way than to kick-start the day with a good ol’ sewing pun in the title (Fabric shears, anyone?) and share some fashion horror story moments that I’m sure are #relatable. So, grab a hot apple cider, hot chocolate, tea, or coffee, and let’s dive into it! BEWARE,…

Does it Seam Worth it?

Yes, you’ve read that correctly. That says seam. It’s not a typo, and it’s not autocorrect trying to write something ridiculous that has no relation to the context whatsoever, I promise. If you haven’t figured it out already, we’re going to be talking about clothing seams and why they’re so important to check before purchasing…

A Day in the Life of Earring Struggles

Earrings. What can I say? I have a love/hate relationship with them. I should preface and mention that when I was in seventh grade I got my ears pierced. Unfortunately, one ear-piercing ended up being slightly higher when compared to the other ear. While post earrings were my friend, fish-hook earrings were difficult to deal…

The Tea on my New Favorite TAZO

Why did I feel like I had just walked into Pier 1 Imports? It was like I had been transported back to my childhood when my parents would take me along to furniture shop with them. I remember the shelves of glittery decor, the dainty potpourri, and the smell of cinnamon and cloves which filled…

And the Best in Brow Budget Beauty Goes to…

If you haven’t realized it by now, this is my fourth brow product review … which means I kind of, sort of, maybe have an obsession with trying out new brow products every time I run out. You would think that once I had found “the one”, my love for it would stand the test…

What if Your Closet was a Clothing Store?

What if your closet was a clothing store? Would it be the type of store that you walk into where everything is perfectly color-coordinated, outfits are displayed for inspiration, clothes are neatly folded, accessories have their own area? Or, would it be more like the fitting rooms that you dodge with clothing left halfway on…

#No Filter Fashion Fixes

Remember the time you waited until last-minute to buy a pair of shoes for that special event you had to go to? And then you rushed to every store that you could think of, but those three words greeted you every single time. Out-of-Stock. Your shoe size was nowhere to be found, and the only…

ZYMOX: Shampoo & Conditioning Rinse

There’s nothing like the feeling of curling up in a fuzzy blanket and staying warm as the winter months go by. But, often we wake up to the cold reality of the importance of skincare. From dry skin patches, to oiliness, to tracking in mud from the great outdoors on a walk, pets seem to…

ZYMOX: Brushless Oral Care

The eerie howling echoed down the hallway at 5 am sharp, and I knew that it was the start of a new day. There have been countless times where I’ve opened my bedroom door to be greeted by the darkness, a pair of gleaming yellow eyes, and bad morning breath. It’s Ducky. No, not a…

What to Expect When You’re a Bridesmaid

When it came to being a bridesmaid, I had no idea what I was doing. Not a clue. I was like a college kid who crammed the week before my final exams and hoped for the best. I tried to take cues and clues from romantic comedy movies, because maybe they had a little truth…

2017: A Year in Review of Makeup & Fashion

There’s something about sitting down at your computer to blog write that feels like visiting an old friend, after so much time has gone by, to catch up on everything. Even though things have changed in between, you just pick up right where you left off last time… 2017 was definitely a busy year filled…

Urban Decay: Naked on the Run

It was one of those late nights where you can’t sleep, and you still want to do something like shopping, but of course, all of the stores are closed because it’s 10:40 pm. If you’re a makeup geek like I am, you’ve probably found yourself on Ulta.com telling yourself you’re only going to browse the…
