Next up is the most glamorous portion of our makeup routines, the eyes. I admit sometimes I’m too damn lazy to sort through my brushes and spend an hour painting my eye lids. So for me to recommend an entire eye palette, there must be something good here, eh? When I do invest time and money into a palette, I refuse to compromise quality; no matter the price. I do not own a single product from Lorac, so Lord knows how I ended up in that section of Ulta after I had already decided on IT Cosmetics Luxe Palette. I swiped a few colors on separate fingers just one time and I was sold. Read More

I know we’re all dreading Summer’s departure but at least the change of season calls for new makeup, new shoes, and while you’re at it; maybe a new wardrobe. Don’t get caught in your high-waisted shorts during knit sweater weather, embrace the change of season because now’s the time to prep. Part one of my Prepping For Fall series is nails. For those of you who can’t let go of your neon yellow polish, Julep’s got your back to help you with a smooth transition. To get you started, I’ve showcased three beautiful colors for three separate occasions with a lip suggestion to match. I also wrote a bit about their Maven program for those of you who haven’t joined. Let’s take a look… Read More

Pick your mouth back up the floor, I know you’re already drooling on sight! 4 inch, leather suede, stiletto heel, reaching 28 inches high to your upper thigh. Are you in love yet? Her name is Essie and she’s made by Jeffery Campbell. I’ve been waiting since Spring to pull these bad boys out of the box so the moment I felt a cool breeze, I threw her on with a leather dress. There’s only a size 7 available on but if you’re looking for something similar, I’ve set up some gorgeous alternatives under $200 down below. Enjoy :) Read More

Quick details from my Instagram post; red eye candy for your viewing pleasure. This Furla bag is a few seasons old now but it’s still available in various colors. I purchased it in Verve since I’m obsessed with anything red, however I’m pretty sure my collection is only beginning. Who wouldn’t want semi-transparent bags in neon and pastel shades?! Jelly bags for the win.

You’re in your mid-twenties and you’ve reached a level of depression and confusion that you’ve never felt before. You’re young, carefree, with more energy than you realize and yet you couldn’t feel more confused about what you’re doing with your life. All you see is what you haven’t accomplished instead of everything you have successfully achieved. Am I right? As teenagers they warned us about pregnancy, drugs, STD’s, even the importance of your credit score; but no one gave me the slightest hint of what I would feel like going into my mid-twenties with no life direction.

Now that you’ve got your hands on the most anticipated shoe of pre-fall, let’s take a moment to find the perfect outfit for them ey? We’re grown enough to know that less is more these days, and since these boots are heavy and loud it’s safe to say that they speak for themselves. Hence, today’s lesson is minimalism with a bold shoe. Don’t you dare step foot outside of your house in a matching red t-shirt or I will find you and expose you! The cold weather is creeping up slowly so get those denim shorts out for one more run. Here we paired them with a long sleeve shirt from ADYN to keep the outfit clean and proportioned. His black essentials (made up of an iPad, Mophie, and Moleskine planner) just sealed the deal. Read More

At 12:45 am we pulled up to the BBC flagship store in Soho to examine the line we were about to enter. 15 people were already there but that was a small enough number to assure us that we were each guaranteed a pair. After sleeping, talking, smoking, laughing, and sleeping some more, the doors were opened at 12pm on the dot and 5 people were let in at a time. Imagine everyone’s disappointment when each person opened up their box only to see the shoe wasn’t exactly what we were expecting. Read More
