If you’ve been a reader of my blog for awhile, you know I used to dabble in fashion/style posts here and there. As my blog naturally progressed into the site it is today, my focus became more and more on beauty and makeup, while the fashion/style aspect took a back seat. I definitely don’t consider myself a “fashionista”, by any means. I actually have quite a lot of trouble finding clothes that fit and flatter my body type. This has made shopping for clothes a daunting and often frustrating task, so I tend to avoid it. However, after a wardrobe rejuvenation session with my friend and stylist Tiffany Pinero last spring, I have a much better idea of styles to look out for. That being said, when I visited the Last Call Neiman Marcus outlet with my sister last weekend, I was on the hunt for some classic pieces I could seamlessly incorporate into my wardrobe. Last Call is a good place for this, because it’s full of high-quality designer pieces for a fraction of the price. I hardly ever buy clothing at full price, so this was right up my alley.
Hi beauties! I have a brand new video for you showing you how I get this sultry makeup look - it's perfect for a date night or any evening out. This look features a neutral smoked-out eye and a peachy-nude lip - one of my absolute favorite combinations ever. I listed all the products I used within the video itself and also beneath the video in the description box on YouTube!

I have been trying to get "back to basics" with my skincare routine by using products that are either completely natural or have lots of natural ingredients inside. I know this approach has always worked well when it came to my eating habits/routines, so why not try it out for my skin? So far I've been very happy with the results of my experiment & I wanted to share these products with you and explain how/when I use them. I will link everything I can so you can check these out for yourself if you're interested in purchasing anything! Read more

Hiiiiiiii! Ya know, sometimes I think it's fun to switch things up and do a more "personal" post occasionally. I know you come here for reviews/swatches/how-to's, but it's also fun to talk about other things every once in awhile.
I had a fun (and busy) last weekend - my sister's birthday dinner, my friend's birthday brunch party, and the be-all, end-all of life, a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn the night before the Super Bowl. A weekend like that was a great excuse for me to come up with a few different makeup looks and do some experimenting.

That little thing that looks like a bar of soap is actually blob of skincare wonder. So much so, that it deserves its own blog post.
I know LUSH is kind of a "thing" amongst beauty bloggers/YouTubers but until recently, I hadn't ever stepped foot in a store. I wandered in recently in a desperate attempt to find SOMETHING that would help calm my skin down - my regular moisturizer was just not cutting it. Because of the weather, my face has been red, dry (yes, me, dry!) and a little rough. Emily, the lovely girl who helped me, suggested this product to me, and I now feel forever indebted to her.
