Back to School/Work Bag Basics

Hello friends, and Happy Friday to you all. Today I’m super excited to share my rendition of a “back to school” video – essentials for your school/work bag! Now, I’m a “far beyond” graduate: the perpetual student. I’ve endured primary school, middle school, four years of high school, four years of college, four years of medical school, and I’m working on my last four years of residency training (only 1.8 more years to go, baby!). While I’m not going to show you my backpack full of Hello Kitty and lollipops, I can show you in the most practical sense what some great things to carry in your book bag are — and indeed, my new favorite way to lug it all around. I hope you enjoy!

HB and I are off to a sunny, hill-country-esque getaway in the middle of nowhere, in the heart of Texas Wine Country (who knew there was such a thing?) and we couldn’t be happier. Since this is the first time we’ve gone away since our cruise last September, I thought I would share with youRead Post →

First Impression: L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara

For what seems like ages I’ve been hearing about the L’Oreal Voluminous® miss manga mascara from overseas blogs and channels and have been super interested in trying it out. I wasn’t sure what all the fuss was about, or what it claimed to do, but when I saw it available at my local CVS in aRead Post →

LIPPRODUCTADDICTTAG

The Lip Product Addict Tag

When it comes to beauty product addictions, there is one giant among men. Although it may seem like I’m forever buying foundations, when it comes to sheer numbers, lip products outrank them all. I guess that classifies me as a lip product addict (I prefer junkie because…well, I just like the sound of it better).Read Post →

Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set

I’m sorry the posting has been patchy these last few weeks. I wish I could say it will get better, but until my ABA (Anesthesiology Board) exam July 29th, most of my time is dedicated to studying. But I promise not to neglect you guys!

Birthday “Haul”

I cringe at the word “Haul” as it pertains to birthdays, but seeing as this was very highly requested – I decided to put this video up. Please note that this video in no way is meant to brag or show off by any means. I’m a fully grown woman who believes that giving presentsRead Post →
