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…

Overlooked Joys of the Female Life

Typical. Recently I’ve found myself thinking this sarcastic response a bit too often, and it got me thinking about the daily struggles I often encounter as a female. There are many things us girls love to complain about (being female is hard work!), but there are also so many forgotten-about annoyances we endure that just don’t get enough attention. Sure, periods suck. The idea of lugging a baby around in my stomach for 9 months makes my back hurt just thinking about it. Then there are the other favorites – lost hair ties, mysteriously missing bobby pins, running with boobs, shaving our legs, etc. I could find…

La La Le Zinque!

There are few things I enjoy more than great food and fabulous company. Last night I met up with a friend of mine for dinner in West Hollywood to celebrate her birthday and new job (so proud!). Things have been craaaazy busy for both of us lately, so catching up was a must, and she suggested Zinque for the occasion! Side note: Not sure if it’s technically just Zinque or if the official name is Le Zinque… the sign says Zinque but the website says Le Zinque so I’m slightly confused. Moving on. I had no idea what Zinque was, so obviously I needed…
