MOVIE REVIEW: WILD

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post talking about a movie but I feel like this one is long overdue. As we already know, I love a good self-discovery movie. I especially love one that takes it’s characters into the wilderness to discover themselves (See: 127 Hours, Into The Wild, etc).

2.11 DRUGSTORE HAUL

It sounds dumb to say aloud, but damn, do I love Walgreens. I made a little trip today to pick up essentials that’ll get me through the rest of the semester (and the rest of college – what is my life?!) and ended up spending a little too much time in the beauty aisle.

But in the spirit of looking forward, I’m already getting psyched about a number of stellar products being launched in the New Year. (more…)

THE NEW YEARS’ EYE: THREE WAYS

For years ladies have been ringing in the New Year with a sparkly dress and a cold glass of bubbly. I thought I’d do some investigating to see if sparkles and glitter were every woman’s New Years’ ideal, or if NYE makeup, for some, takes a more subtle turn. After discussing this matter Carrie Bradshaw-style with some friends, I’ve found that glitter on New Years’ seems to be the norm, but there are a few alternatives to the sparkle. (more…)
