Nordstrom Sale Picks & GIVEAWAY!

It’s that time of year again… the NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE HAS ARRIVED. I’ve always been a Nordstrom girl. Like, 98% of my closet is from Nordstrom. And there’s nothing I love more than being escorted behind that epic secret curtain and getting a sneak peek at the fall trends. It makes me feel so special. In that moment, my Nordy’s card is like a golden ticket. I tried to stay far far away from the sale this year. Once I get started, I can’t stop. I have a self-control problem in this area. But everyone and their moms have been sharing their top…

What’s in my Purse?!

I’m a bag lady. By bag lady, I don’t mean that I have a lot of bags. Well, sometimes I do. But what I mean in this case is that I always carry a ridiculously large, extremely heavy bag with me everywhere I go. And it’s full of a million things. I’m kinda known for it. If for some reason I bring a small satchel somewhere instead, someone always makes the comment, “Wow! I’ve never seen you without your big bag!” Get the picture? I love my big bag. I need it. I need something strong and sturdy to carry the ridiculous amount…

IT’S PRIMETIME: Top Face Primers for Oily Skin

FACE PRIMERS! I get a lot of questions about primers. “Do I really need a face primer? What does it even do? What’s the best one?” Not everyone needs to use a face primer. It depends on your skin type and how you like your foundation to look. I’ve also found that most primers are really hit or miss. Basically, a primer is either going to do amazing things for your makeup, do nothing, or make your foundation a greasy, patchy mess. In the second two cases, it’s definitely better to go without a primer than to use one just for the sake of using…

Protect Yoself: Top 3 Summer Skincare Items

Hi hi hi! It’s currently 12:17 A.M. and I have about a million and five things to do. Homework, regular work, and sleep are just a few of those things, but my brain is gonna burst if I don’t bust out this blog post. It’s been getting a little sunny down here in Los Angeles lately. By a little sunny, I mean 106 degrees. So I’m melting. I’m veeeerrrrryyyyy fair-skinned, if you didn’t know, so sun protection is SUPER important to me. Even if I wasn’t as pale as I am, I would still be a psycho about wearing sunscreen.…

Affordable, Must-Have Makeup Brushes

It has recently come to my attention that a lot of my friends are very overwhelmed with makeup brushes. They don’t know what brush to use for what, they don’t know what to buy, they don’t know where to buy it…the list goes on. There are SO many makeup brushes on the market that it can feel impossible to choose just a few to invest in if you’re not sure what you’re looking for. Having good brushes is a total game-changer. It’s pointless to spend your money on great products if you don’t invest in high-quality tools to apply those products properly. Luckily, some…
