Facing Life with Zara and Topshop

I can’t believe it’s already march! The holiday season has come and gone and it seems that the older I get, the faster time passes. It has been nearly a year since i last updated and while I was taking my time, I knew something had to change...

Shop with Me: Nude Bags for Spring and Summer

It's been a while since I've bought a bag and lately, I've been wanting one in nude. Although with us in the middle of building our new home, a lot of purchases have to be scaled back. But that won't stop me from doing the internet version of window shopping, will it? Below are five nude bags that would be absolutely perfect for all of your neutral purse needs!

Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo Review

I've been really loving my NARS Satin and Matte Lip Pencils so much that I wanted to try ones by other brands. I came across the Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo and bought a couple in January. These sat in my drawer until...

DIY Lace Front Wig

First of all, procrastination is the bane of my existence. I got the hair for this wig last October and just not got around to working on it. To be fair I did sew and finish it once before but...

Holiday Haul + Last Minute Gift Ideas

It's been a long time since I've blogged, huh? Let's just jump right into it. I've been meaning to post about my Black Friday purchases but since I did most of my shopping online, they didn't all arrive at the same time and I just never got around to posting about it. So now, nearly 3 weeks later and with Christmas in just a few days, I thought I'd post some of the things I got and...

Transgender Remembrance Day

I went to high school between 1998 and 2002. I attended a leadership magnet program geared at teaching inner city teenagers skills like teamwork, communication and leading by example. A big part of this program was having to give speeches--lots of speeches. And they must fit a specific time requirement! I loved to write and had things to say but for an introvert like me, getting up in front of my classmates...

Summer Nail Colors

 don't like to spend a lot of money on my nails. It's one of the things I tend to let go, especially since I'm rubbish at keeping them up. In fact, I usually only go to the nail salon if I have an important event coming up and I want to look more polished (pun intended). Other than that...

Affordable Make-Up Brushes

Make-up brushes make a big difference in the outcome of your application. You have to take into account factors like ferrule density, shape and fibers. Some professional make-up artists even consider things like handle material, weight, length, etc. As most of you know, collecting brushes...

Time to Glow Up: My Favorite Highlighters

I know, I know--everyone's talking about the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette because, well, Becca is awesome and Jaclyn Hill is awesome so this stuff must be superawesomesauceface! That may be true but there are other highlighters out there that deserve some love! For this week's beauty call, I'm sharing 5 of my favorite highlighters. ..

Wash Acne Away

I'm going to admit right off the bat that acne has never been a big problem for me. Of the many problems I had in during my teens and early 20s, acne was not at the top of my list and it did not need to be. That being said, I still suffered from the occasional pimple and use a cheap and easy way to help...

Beauty Call, 06/16/2016

When maxi dresses started to re-emerge several years ago, I have to admit I was reluctant to jump on the bandwagon. It took several years for me to warm up to them. In fact, I once balked at the idea of running around town while wearing...

Memorial Day Haul

I know, I know--Memorial Day was two weeks ago but it took me a good week to have all the stuff that I bought get delivered and then I was sick the past week. Anyway, let's cut to the chase and see some of the stuff I bought...

Beauty Call, 5/27/2016

This week's Beauty Call falls on the beginning of Memorial Day weekend! For most, Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of summer vacation season (extra points if you're not a grown-up and actually have summer vacation). Whether you're a student celebrating the end of school or...

Winged Liner and Silk Lashes

I've been loving Stila's Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and Velour Silk Lashes Fluff'n Thick Silk Lash Collection in "Trust Me, Try It" so I decided to create this look using these two products. I hope you like it!
