Being a Perfectionist: A Work in Progress

I’m currently consumed in a 90210 Netflix binge. I made it my weekend goal to finish the series, so it’s safe to say this show has taken over my life. Isn’t it peculiar how your current life struggle always coincidentally correlates with a scene or quote in the show or movie you just happen to be watching? I always think it’s the universe telling me something. Maybe it is, or maybe it’s just because movie/television plots are obviously always relatable to our life dilemmas, so we notice the similarities. Either way, it always happens. So obviously that happened to me today while I was…

Summer in Stripes

I have this thing where my entire closet consists of about 4 colors and 3 patterns. One of which is stripes. I loooove black and white stripes. Today’s look was ideal for a typical Saturday of brunch and errands because it’s cute enough for brunch, but comfortable enough for errands. AKA the best of both worlds. It’s so easy to pull together because it consists of basic, staple pieces in every girl’s closet, and it’s super cheap – win!  I’m all about simple when it comes to my outfits, and this is about as simple as it gets! Striped T-Shirt Dress: I got…

July 2015 Addictions

The fact that it’s the beginning of August completely blows my mind. July felt like it lasted a total of 4 seconds. I always expect summer to be really slow-moving and relaxing, but this summer has been go, go, go! Between settling into my new apartment, work, and other life events, the time completely vanished. All the craziness meant I religiously reached for a set of go-to products to make my morning routine a teensy bit faster. Urban Decay Naked on the Run: I’ve had this palette since last Christmas when it was released, but honestly I never really got that…

Going HAM at Beauty Before Brunch

HELLOOOOO LOVELIES! Today was a Sephora VIB Rouge event: Beauty Before Brunch, AKA possibly one of the greatest combinations to ever come into existence. I am obsessed with Sephora, and I am obsessed with brunch. An excuse for both in one morning was heaven-sent. What exactly did this fabulous morning entail? Closed-door shopping for VIB Rouge members and a friend, quadruple the points on everything bought, mini makeovers, and a cosmetic bag with free samples! Do you really think I would turn down a cosmetic bag with free samples? Unequivocally no. There was an entire table of cookies, pastries, fruit, coffee, and…

#TheFinalRose

The Bachelorette. Let’s talk about it. I have so many things to say about this season that I don’t even know where to begin. So naturally I’ll begin at the end. Like every other woman in America, on Monday I curled up on the couch for a girls’ night to watch the finale of the Bachelorette for what felt like the 8 billionth time. Watching the Bachelor/Bachelorette without friends to make commentary with is like finding a unicorn without a horn – you just don’t. I did already know who was going home, but I acted like I didn’t because it made the episode…
