Happy Weekend | Flower Friday

Hello Friday! It is so nice to see you finally. This week has felt incredibly long and drawn out. Not sure why but on Tuesday I woke up thinking it was Wednesday and ended the day thinking it was Thursday. Please tell me someone else felt like that this week?

Recipe | The Winter Citrus Cocktail

With citrus fruits being in prime season at the moment I could resist grabbing a few of the delicious and bright "Cara Cara" oranges at the grocery store. I've also been stocking up on lemons for detoxing with hot water; so with plenty of citrus lying around the house I decided to whip up a cocktail the over the weekend.

When The Skies Are Grey...The Red Tones Come Out To Play

About this time every year I start craving orangey/red tones in full force. For those of you who know me well (or have followed my blog for a long time) will know that my closet is filled with a ton of neutrals and my nail polish choice ninety-nine percent of the time is dark and vampy. All of that said it must have something to do with the grey skies and cold temperatures that gets me craving shades of red/orange.

Just Landed | Living Proof, Perfect Hair Day

Good morning everyone! Remember me? Sorry for the lack of posts around these parts recently. Last week was one of those crazy weeks at work, plus I had been out of town the weekend before (and left my camera at home) leaving me without any blog content for the week sadly. Anyways, enough of that...

A few week's back an exciting little package arrived at my doorstep containing these three gorgeous grey bottles. Living Proof has been a brand I have looked at countless times in Sephora, so I was excited to have the opportunity to test out some products.

Happy Weekend | Flower Friday

Hello and happy Friday everyone! Here's little post that hasn't popped up on these pages in quite some time - a 'Flower Friday'! I couldn't resist these gorgeous orange tulips when I saw them in Whole Foods last Friday. They add just the right amount of color to my apartment and keep things bright and cheerful during these cold days.

Three Unexpected Nail Colors For Winter

A few week's back I did a post on "non-red" holiday polish options that seemed to be really loved! Since winter can be grueling and a lot of us gravitate towards dark polishes this time of year I thought it would be fun to throw out a few unexpected colors you can rock during the cold months.

2014 Favorites | Part Two

Raise your hand if you made it through yesterday's crazy long post! Today it's onto the second part of the best of 2014 - the skincare, hair, and fragrance favorites! This bit was a bit easier to narrow done and contains some fantastic skin savers.

2014 Favorites | Part One

Well the time has finally come. I rounded up all of my favorites from this year (it was a challenge) and now I get to share them all with you! Due to the amount of product I split this post itself into two sections (first up lips and eyes, followed by face stuff) and tomorrow will be a separate post with skincare/hair and all that good stuff! Alright, if you're ready for quite the chatty post...read on!

Happy Weekend

Happy Friday everyone! I don't know about you, but for me this week flew by. Maybe it was finally getting back into the swing of things at work, maybe it was those 6am barre classes I finally got back into the routine of (thank you Ashlyn), or maybe it was just because I'm finally feeling motivated and productive.  Who knows, I'm just excited to see another weekend rolling around. Ashlyn, Sarah, and I have some fun plans on Saturday and I am continuing my mission of cleaning out the apartment. What all do you have planned this weekend? Do tell in the comments below :)

Post-Party Skincare

This year I declared New Year's day a "do-nothing" day. I wanted to start the new year off super relaxed with no major expectations for accomplishing anything that first day. Since I spent the night before getting all done up, celebrating, and staying out late I decided to go all out with a post-big night out routine. It helped me to feel better and feel like I had a fresh start for 2015.

December Beauty Favorites

December was an amazing beauty month, filled with lots of new products, plenty of sparkle, and a few special rose gold pieces. So before I began sorting through my 2014 overall favorites I wanted to dedicate a post to the final month of the year.

Hello 2015

Happy New Year and Happy 2015 everyone! I hope all of you had a safe and wonderful start to the new year. I'm writing this post today because I declared yesterday an official "do-nothing" day; something I haven't done in ages.
