Write When You’re Inspired

I stared at the blank computer screen in front of me, and realized how daunting coming up with ideas to write about was. The blank page held so many opportunities for creativity, but also echoed a silence that needed to be filled with words, pictures, anything! If you’re like me, you have those days where…

When in Chrome…

Where has the time gone? It literally feels like it was just Friday after I got off of work, and then Saturday and Sunday danced in a whirlwind of raindrops, and now it’s Tuesday. I feel like a majority of my weekend was spent traveling. I boarded the bus early Saturday afternoon, arrived up north…

Makeup: Past, Present, & Future (Everything Blush)

While eyeshadows, mascara, foundation, and eyeliner create the base for your every day makeup look, it’s blush that adds a bright pop of color and brings life! Today, I’m going to share some of my favorite blushes that I have used in the past, the current blush palette that I am using, and blushes by…

Umacamon Japanese Kitchen

Last weekend, I fellĀ in love with a restaurant I’d never been to before called Umacamon Japanese Kitchen in Rolling Meadows, Illinois. It was a beautiful, sunny day outside with blue skies, and despite the wintry cold feeling, it made it the perfect day to have something warm to eat for lunch. I happened to have…

Urban Decay: VICE Junkie Lipstick Palette

It’s my great pleasure to announce that I’ve ventured out of my comfort zone of buying and reviewing eyeshadows, and into the world of lipsticks! I’ve literally been eyeing the Urban Decay: Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette since I’d received a catalog from Ulta in the mail around the fall. Unfortunately, one day when I’d convinced…

BECCA: Shadow & Light Brow Contour Mousse

Ever since I watched one of Jaclyn Hill’s YouTube videos about her collaboration with BECCA Cosmetics, I became curious about the brand. I scrolled through hundreds of pictures on Pinterest of BECCA highlighters, and perused through the websites of Ulta and Sephora looking at highlighter sets and tried to decide whether or not it would…

Makeup: Past, Present & Future (Everything Eyeshadow)

In anticipation of my Sephora order that will be arriving next week, I thought it’d be fun to talk about some of the makeup products that I have purchased in the past, my current makeup, and future makeup products that are either on the way in an order that I’ll review, or on my ultimate…

Voluspa: Apple & Blue Clover Candle

My breath was taken away by the ethereal beauty of all of Voluspa’s candle tin designs. When I was searching for new candle brands on Nordstrom, the artwork of Voluspa caught my attention. Each candle has something exquisite about it, whether it’s the perfect combination of notes that fit in harmony, or the little details…

Antica Farmacista: Lemon, Verbena & Cedar Votive Candle

A few weeks ago, my favorite Yankee Candle: Picnic in the Park, burnt down to the end of its wick. It was one of my favorite mini jar candles, because the scent was fresh and clean, like a summer breeze, and it was not overwhelmingly fragrant like a perfume. While I love Yankee Candle, I…

A Little Inspiration

If you’re as much of a Pinterest geek as I am, then you’ve probably pinned at least a million pictures of your dream office space, or dream desk with accessories, and possibly the artwork that would be framed on your wall. I’ve seen a ton of Lilly Pulitzer and Kate Spade desk accessories and planners…

The Perfect Weekend

On my mini road trip this weekend, I went shopping at Zara. Their window display had a huge sign that had ‘SALE’ written all over it in various font sizes. That was literally all it took to convince my mom and I to walk in. Also, it’s one of our favorite stores. After searching through…

Road Trip Playlist

This weekend, I’m so excited to finally have a few days off of work to take a road trip to visit one of my best friends. Usually, we only see each other once every two months, or sometimes only two or three times a year because of school and work. The drive to visit is…
