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…

Benefit Cosmetics: Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel

In my youth, the summer after I graduated from high school, I remember wishing that my sparse eyebrows were fuller. I wasn’t very experienced with makeup, and that day I decided to experiment with the mascara that I already owned. Yes, (If you are thinking what I was thinking at the time) I applied it…

L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation

There’s no better feeling than finding the perfect foundation that effortlessly becomes one with your skin, leaving that slightly dewy, natural look, and hiding any minor imperfections. It’s taken me many tries with different foundations and BB Creams to find something flattering that’s hydrating, stays on all day, and doesn’t stick to any dry patches,…

Beyond the Hype: Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette

When I discovered that the Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette was temporarily out of stock on Ulta.com, I let out a deep sigh of disappointment. Months ago, I’d seen it online and thought to myself that I’d just order it later on, because I’d spent too much over the holidays. It turns out,…

Clinique, You Can Have My Heart

If you’ve ever suffered from dry skin, then you know that finding a great skin care product that performs miracles is of the utmost importance. I had run out of my favorite bottle of Simple: Kind to Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturizer, and had never gotten around to replacing it months ago. I tried to make…

Valentine’s Day Gift Box

With only a few days left before Valentine’s Day, you may be wandering through the aisles of your local grocery store, or price comparing at different chocolatiers, only to discover that buying boxes of chocolates for your family, friends, or significant other can easily add up to a pretty penny. The idea to make a…

The Body Shop: Virgin Mojito Body Butter

It was the summer of 2013 that I discovered one of Ingrid Nilsen’s videos with a product haul where she talked about a brand called The Body Shop, and raved about how great their body butters were. After listening to her talk about it, I was intrigued and hopeful that this could be my new…

Travel in Style

G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S (Cue that Fergie song!), is the first thing that came to mind when I passed this travel mug while making my way through the progressing line at Starbucks with my best friend. I had to do a double take, walk back, and bring it with me to the checkout counter along with some Madeleines….
