NAKED Football

No, I didn’t go to a football game naked. But I did use my Urban Decay NAKED palette for some quick & easy game day makeup! The original NAKED palette is an oldie, but always a goodie. With its excellent pigmentation, great blendability, and perfect variety of finishes, it’s one of those palettes that I always find myself going back to. A lot of my go-to, don’t-have-to-think-about-it looks come from this palette because it really has everything a girl could need. Most beauty lovers have this in their collection already, so I thought I’d share a super simple look from this palette…

EMWM: The October Movie Agenda

I take the holidays very seriously. The holiday season (we’re talking October to January) is a magical time that should be loved and appreciated in every way possible – through food, drinks, decor, clothes, themed activities, and, most of all, MOVIES! I’m a biiiiiig movie-watcher. Probably my favorite thing to do in my spare time. Buuuuut I tend to watch the same movies over, and over, and over, and over again. If it’s a quality film or has some sentimental value, I won’t get tired of it. This is true especially for holiday movies. Every year, when October 1st hits, I put together my movie agenda…

SURprise! I’m RHOBH Obsessed.

  I’ve been having major Real Housewives of Beverly Hills withdrawals recently. So I decided to appease them with a little excursion to a place I’ve been dying to try – SUR! If you’re a Real Housewives junkie (and foodie) like me, then you know the importance of dining at SUR, Pump, and Villa Blanca at least once in your life. If Lisa Vanderpump is involved, I expect nothing but fabulous. And, of course, SUR was extremely fab. You know you’re somewhere important when a security guard is standing at the door. Typical LA. SUR felt a lot smaller in person than what I’d imagined…

Queen Shonda & Pumpkin Smoothies

Thursday night was the start of #TGIT on ABC, & it was oh-so-lovely. My entire week led up to the start of #TGIT, and I’m not ashamed of that. Great television gets me pumped for life. I’m addicted to ABC shows. They’re amazing. Above all, I have a deep obsession with anything Shonda Rhimes creates. If you see “Created by Shonda Rhimes” in a show’s credits, you know you’re in for a night of kickass television. And you know it’s time to pop open a bottle of wine. I’ve been a Grey’s Anatomy lover since its humble beginnings, back when I was far too young to…

Cozy Candles, Cozy Life

FALL IS OFFICIALLY HEREEEEE! Can you feel my excitement? The beginning of fall signifies many things, but perhaps the most important is that it’s time for CANDLE SHOPPING! I’m completely obsessed with candles. They change lives. I generally only bring them out during fall and winter, when the cool weather practically begs for a cozy candle glow paired with a warm scent to hug your soul. Candles have a magical ability to make everything feel calmer, and to make a house feel like a home. They’re just welcoming. I typically go through two candle rounds – fall and winter, AKA Thanksgiving & Christmas (the…
