holiday hangover

Looking through my closet today, I was inspired by the rain to find a comfy outfit that still looks edgy and chic. Click the image below to see the products I’ve chosen to accommodate this rainy Tuesday and my Holiday Hangover.

freshly fall – i miss the 90’s

To welcome Fall, and my return to blogging after a much needed hiatus, I’ve started curating collections of products that I think are rad. Check out my 90’s obsession board titled “Freshly Fall” and get cozy with chunky knits and a bit of biker inspired edge.

you can’t be original without risking looking foolish

This video from Ethan Hawke on big think is one of the purest pieces of advice I’ve heard in a long time. It’s about identity. It’s about diminishing fear. It’s about finding peace within yourself by understanding that you have to take chances to make a change, or have success, or just be heard. You should really watch…

sytycd: #sobfest2016 – so you think you can cry

So I think it’s pretty clear that I love to dance. Based on posts I’ve done about working out, going to the gym, going out, and the music I listen to… it might be obvious. But for those of you that haven’t read anything else I’ve written, I’ll say it plainly: I love to dance. That…

a night in the woods

What a weekend! We had so much going on, I was worried I would feel overwhelmed, but celebrating so many wonderful events was actually really great.

beauty review: nail decals & glue on nails

I am a nail fanatic. That doesn’t mean that I have great nails, or that I’m even particularly good at doing them. However, I do own an LED curing lamp (for gel manicures), nearly every kind of nail decal imaginable, and every embellishment I can find (stickers, studs, hoops, etc…). I really have tried them…

help me get my ipsy bag? pretty please?!

So I discovered ipsy.com today. I personally am a huge fan of Michelle Phan and her YouTube channel. I think she posts great content, and overall her videos are super fun. ipsy.com was founded by Michelle, and provides a service similar to Birch Box, however, combing through posts of what’s included in Birch Box vs….

i need this

So, I like to think I’m good at applying makeup in a variety of situations. In a moving car, dim lighting, on the train… I’ve done it all. [explosivemelody.tumblr.com] However, I just received an email from PureWow (who sends out great stuff btw), and now I NEED this: Beauty Beam Quoted from their site, it…

better than sex! oh too faced…

I am a beauty fanatic! As a Hairstylist/Makeup Artist, former Estee Lauder employee, Priv stylist, and all around product junkie, I love to learn about new brands and reacquaint myself with brands I haven’t used in a while. Today I came across Too Faced‘s YouTube ad for their “Better than Sex” mascara, and personally I…
