August Favorites

August Beauty Favorites 2014

Click here to view my latest YouTube video – my favorite beauty and non-beauty items for the month of August! I had a great time picking this month’s favorites for you guys – definitely a random assortment, heavier on the non-beauty faves this time around. But no fear–next month’s installment promises to be big on the beauty, as I’ve been testing some products out a little more rigorously than usual so I can be absolutely sure they’re up to standard (and they are).

The Vintage Pearl is an amazing, lovely shop (and official PSS sponsor) that creates some beautiful jewelry. I just love that their designs are elegant yet paradoxically rustic. When they contacted me about hosting a giveaway on PSS, I just knew that the lovely Pretty Committee would appreciate the chance to win something pretty. SoRead Post →

I Want To Swim In A Sea of Macarons

Now I know this is a deviation from my normally fashion-centered posts (like this one), but I just had to have a PSS macarons post. They’re pronounced like macaroni without the “i”, and are composed of only four ingredients: egg whites, powdered sugar, ground almonds, and granulated sugar. I’ve been dying to try one andRead Post →

Sequins & Leather on a Friday

Happy Friday! I felt my last outfit post was a bit androgenous – and some of you agreed with me. So, when I felt like slipping my boots on again, I decided to add some feminine sparkle. The jeans are also a lighter, silvery shade of grey compared to the dark grey pair in theRead Post →

The One Where She Wore Motorcycle Boots

On my way to class to take a see-how-badly-you-fail-this-standardized-exam which will be five hours long. Five. Hours. Long. I’m going to have to pee. And then my stomach is going to growl. I just know it. But I’m happy because Shop Bop sent me these gorgeous Frye Engineer boots and today is the first dayRead Post →
