Chanel Bases | CC Cream vs Les Beiges

Is having both these Chanel bases excessive? Yes. Was it worth it to buy both? Absolutely.

Lust List | 25th Birthday

With my twenty-fifth birthday just around the corner a few friends began asking if there was anything I wanted. My standard answer is usually - "to have you come to dinner with me" or "a bottle of champagne". The other night though, I sat down and started thinking about a few things that would be useful or fun to add to my wardrobe/home.

April Beauty Favorites

With warmer weather finally making it's way to us, this month's favorites are simple and filled with light shades. I'm entering into the point of the year where I'm wearing less products, skipping the liner, and turning to blush-nudes.

The Easy Facial

Hello readers, I'm finally back to some regular postings! After a relaxing week off from blogging, I figured an appropriate first post back would be one that centers around pampering. The Flash Rinse, 1 Minute Facial is exactly what the label reads. One little tube, one little dollop of product, and one minute to some pretty great skin. It's the busy girls savior.

Hello Monday...

Hands down this was one of the best weekend's I've had in a while. I slept in, deep cleaned the house, had a few glasses of wine and Thai takeout with Ashlyn, did a little shopping, and spent most of Sunday out in the gorgeous weather.

Happy Weekend

Happy Friday everyone! Aside from a blender malfunction that spewed frozen Acai all over my kitchen, this week was a pretty great one. Along with being productive, it included a splurgy/feeling spendy Wednesday night with Ashlyn, some really good hair days, and a Thursday night filled with organizing (nothing makes me happier than a well organized space). I even managed a good brush cleaning session (I loathe washing my brushes). I plan to spend this weekend recharging and brainstorming some new creative ideas for the blog. Maybe a good brunch or a few glasses a wine with friends will creep in there too.

What are you up to this weekend? Let me know in the comments below!

Beauty Radar | The Olsen Twins

It's absolutely amazing to me that for as long as I can remember Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been my style and beauty icons. Whether it was their super layered flipped haircuts, spaghetti strap dresses floral dresses, colored sunglasses, or platform flip flops I was dying to have everything the same as theirs. As they evolved their style got better and better and I've loved every minute of it.

Recipe | The Easy Acai Bowl

A while back I started seeing these pretty little bowls pop up all over my Instagram and started wondering what exactly they were. After a bit of digging I discovered the trend known as the Acai Bowl.

The Tag | Signature Style

The other week the gorgeous Sarah shared her "Signature Style" and tagged me to share my own. This is the look that I have down to a science, the one you'll most likely find me running around the office in, and of course the one I feel the best in. It includes a lightweight base, a cat eye flick, and glowy/pink cheeks, and a nude lip.

Happy Friday + Instagram Catch Up

Happy Friday everyone! This week has me all kinds of turned around - after the holiday weekend, plus having Monday off, I've been off on my days completely. This week was all about playing catch up at work though. Due to that there hasn't been too much action around these parts this week. I have been posting on Instagram though!

This weekend will be filled with some reorganizing of my ridiculously overflowing makeup stash, a bit of sleeping in, and getting things back on track over on the blog. 

Let me know what you're up to this weekend in the comments! Also, if you'd like to follow along, check out the link to my Instagram below and leave me your handle in the comments :)

Tuesday Morning Chat

I always enjoy taking a little break from full blown makeup posts and sharing some of my current non-beauty favorites or things I've been loving lately.

Blue Skies + Blossoms

Spring has finally hit the District of Columbia and with Spring comes the beautiful blooming of the Cherry Blossom trees. When Jo Malone launched their "Blue Skies + Blossoms" collection and reached out to share their fragrance with me; it couldn't have come at a better time.

Happy Weekend

This week has been an absolute whirlwind - but a great whirlwind! It included some fun plans with friends, a huge work event, and a little prep for a great weekend with family. This weekend promises to be a great one; filled with some good family time, lots of relaxing, and playing catch up on all things blog related after a busy week at work.

The Dry Lip Saver

Hands down, one of my biggest beauty frustrations is my super dry lips. No matter how much water I drink or what products I use they still seem to be an issue - making it hard to wear matte lip colors. For a long time I've sworn by the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream - which has worked the best out of any other balms I've tried so far. Until...I was introduced to Sara Happ at Nordstrom the other weekend and tried out some of her line.

March Beauty Favorites

With March having some not-so-pleasant weather, I'm not going to say I'm sorry to see it leave go. However, bad weather aside March was filled with some fantastic beauty finds and rediscoveries.
