Raise your hand if you’ve purchased the YSL Volupté Sheer Candy before. Now raise your hand if you’ve bought multiple shades (Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice and well, I’m an idiot). Keep your hand raised if you were underwhelmed with the quality to cost ratio. Caution: both of my hands are touching the ceiling.

Coffee Table Styling & Decor Ideas

Coffee tables are essentially the center of attention when it comes to a family room or living space.

New at the Drugstore: Hot List!

Recently it seems that stores such as Target and that of the like are becoming to be a one stop convenience shop for all household and lifestyle needs.

Their cosmetics section in particular has been standing out to me lately.… Continue reading New at the Drugstore: Hot List!

Why You Should Stop Contouring Immediately

Okay, okay before you strike, put down your loaded Lush bath bombs and hear me out. I am such a hypocrite of this topic that it almost hurts to type, but something has got to be said before more innocent faces are ruined by learning the hard way. Contouring has gotten completely out of control and it’s time… Continue reading Why You Should Stop Contouring Immediately

How to Style a Champagne Bar Cart

Bar carts are incredibly stylish and have been on the rise the past few years, and for good reason! They are extremely versatile and can easily function as a makeshift bookshelf, coffee cart, end table, catch-all, and on New Year’s Eve- a champagne bar cart. Although just recently trendy, bar carts have been around for decades. If… Continue reading How to Style a Champagne Bar Cart


Showers are so therapeutic for me and I often find myself making excuses to take one after a long stressful day of work or when everything just seems to be going wrong.
