Rent the Runway, and then Strut Down It

Okay, you guys! I’ve officially got a new obsession, and this time, it’s CHEAP! (Hallelujah, amirite?!) For New Year’s Eve, I was Alex’s date to a black-tie wedding. First of all, I’ve never been to a NYE wedding before, but now I’m tempted to put that in my back pocket… Secondly, I had absolutely nothing to wear. I never do this, but I waited until … Continue reading Rent the Runway, and then Strut Down It

My Favorite Self-Tanners (and tips & tricks to using them!)

There are levels to this, guys.  Self-tanning isn’t easy. It’s time consuming, and it can be kind of easy to mess up (depending on what products you use). That’s exactly why I want to show (1) my favorite products to use, as well as when/why, and (2) tips/tricks to getting your best bronze glow!   For a quick pick-me-up:  I love using Neutrogena tanning towelettes. I’ve used … Continue reading My Favorite Self-Tanners (and tips & tricks to using them!)

Beginner Workout Regimen (3x per week)

    Looking up motivational quotes about working out is half the battle, right? This post is for my ladies that, like me, reformulate their gym goals 5-6 times a year when they are trying to “get back into the swing of things” – let’s be honest, we’re swinging back and forth at this point.  I can’t take credit for this post; this plan was formulated … Continue reading Beginner Workout Regimen (3x per week)

Sephora VIB/Rouge Sale

Just in time for the holidays, Sephora is having its huge semi-annual sale again, and in typical I-can’t-get-enough-Sephora fashion, I have been preparing for weeks. Sephora (usually) only hosts two sales per year, but this year, they surprised us with an appreciation sale at the end of Summer. [If you missed that blog post where I shared my recommendations, I’ll link that here.] This winter … Continue reading Sephora VIB/Rouge Sale

The Perfect Little Black (Leather) Skirt

Just as I have shared my tips and tricks to finding and styling the perfect LBD, I want to share with you guys how I wear a seemingly unwearable piece – the black leather skirt. In the past, the idea of a leather skirt gives me a very “Pretty Woman” vibe – not something you would want to wear around the office, or say, Thanksgiving … Continue reading The Perfect Little Black (Leather) Skirt

Sephora basically sprung onto everyone a VIB appreciation sale as a way to showcase their new rewards system (an increase in points-per-dollar and a cash back option in point redemption). I honestly love the new reward options, and this sale was a perfect surprise for me to grab a few things I’ve had my eye on, but didn’t want to bite the bullet just yet! … Continue reading Haul: Sephora Appreciation Sale

Drunk Elephant: Acid Trip (Review)

Drunk Elephant has taken the skincare world by storm, and for good reason. Their products are full of top of the line ingredients and they are a completely clean brand, meaning they are formulated without any sulfates, artificial dyes, or scents. Long story short: this is one hell of a brand, but it comes at a price. Because of the hefty price tag, I was … Continue reading Drunk Elephant: Acid Trip (Review)

96% Sun Damage on a 22-Year-Old Face

For a completely unrelated reason, I got connected with a “med-spa skin care clinic” aka Botox, Lip-fillers, that sort of stuff. They know that I’m trying out lash serums and asked if I wanted to come in for an analysis of my lashes; this would allow me to have real numbers to measure the thickness and length of my lashes. (More on that in another … Continue reading 96% Sun Damage on a 22-Year-Old Face
