Here’s the thing, ya’ll: sometimes a girl just wants to paint the bleeding head of an iconic French woman on their nail. This look is for anyone who feels that. (more…)
I don’t know about you, but for some reason my interest in discovering new artists and music in general increases tenfold once fall arrives. Maybe it has something to do with all of that time I spend reading and writing and redefining myself around this time of year – or maybe I just get more anti-social, or realize that in fact I have always been anti-social? Regardless of the cause, I spend approximately 80% of my free time making playlists. (more…)
So fall is in full swing, and I’ve decided to partner up with Warby Parker to share some of my favorite things to do in the fall. I’ve always loved Warby Parker’s frames and sunglasses, so I am using this as an excuse to test out their Home Try-On program. They’re not paying me to praise them but I lowkey am obsessed. So thanks WP! (more…)
Hey everyone! Long time no speak, I know. I’ve finally started adjusting to life in Brooklyn, and I think we’re long overdue for some YouTube videos, what do you think? I’m working on a couple of partnerships for HV right now so hopefully those go well, but in the mean time, I’m here to wrap up my beauty notes from the past seven days. (more…)
So I don’t know about you folks, but I deal with some serious ULS during the summer months. If you don’t know what I’m referring to, that would be good old glamorous “upper lip sweat.” Honestly if you don’t deal with this you’re either some super-human goddess or you’re lying to yourself. (more…)
It’s safe to say that the yoga craze is sweeping the nation. From the pop up of designer workout gear (yeah Lululemon I’m calling you out), to our generations’ love for all things hippie, yoga is everywhere. I had always assumed that all yoga was this nice, relaxing thing where you stretch and say “om” and connect with your soul, but boy was I wrong. (more…)
The London to NYC culture shock is real, ya’ll. Although I’ve been back for a few months, every now and then something reignites the memories and makes me miss London all over again. Not only have I been missing the daily trips to Sainsbury’s, Tesco, and my all time favorite coffee shop (the pricey but oh-so-perfect Freestate Coffee), most of all, I miss Boots. Yes, the mundane but amazing drugstore of my dreams tops the list of places I want to spend my life perusing (close seconds include Selfridge’s and that Oxford Circus Topshop #bless). (more…)
If there’s one thing I’m learning from my beginnings in the corporate world, it’s that doing my makeup is becoming a shockingly low priority for me. Out are the days of sitting in front of my mirror for twenty minutes perfecting my Swiftian flick, in are the days of barely scraping on a coat of mascara with my shoes half on as I run out the door.
