Ever since we moved we’ve been wondering what to do with the small 4th bedroom upstairs. I’ve been debating between turning it into my new walk-in closet, beauty room, or office, but none of them seemed very compelling to me. Then I really got into planners and crafts lately, and I realized that I really wanted my own office/craft room!
When it comes to mascara I usually go with Maybelline or a high end brand. However, I received this Revlon Bold Lacquer mascara as part of my July BeautyBox 5, and I was getting bored with my current collection, so I thought I’d give it a try.
As part of my search for the perfect planner, I’ve been watching a lot of youtube videos on how people organize and decorate theirs. Watching these videos not only gave me plenty of inspiration to decorate my planner, but also made me realize I much I miss DIY! Since I had some stuff to return anyways, I decided to visit Michael’s and see what new supplies I could pick up:
As much as I love my phone and can’t live with it, I’ve never been able to use it as my daily planner/agenda. I’ve tried all the apps – Wunderlist, Any.do, Reminder, etc – and I still prefer the old fashioned pen-and-paper way. With my new web design/development partnership growing AND my determination to turn this blog into something even bigger, I need a planner that can help me stay on top of it all!
You've probably seen the simple blue jar on your grandma or mom's vanity or tucked away on the bottom shelf at a drugstore. It looks bland, feels bland, has a bland ingredient list, but its impact on my skin is anything but.
After years of trial and error, I've found that the most effective method of removing sebaceous filaments isn't using a specific product, but using the right type of products regularly in your routine.
To all my US readers, hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! We spent the afternoon at a friend’s bbq, and ventured into DC at night for the fireworks! My fiance and I would joke that it’s our tradition to always miss the fireworks, but we broke tradition this year and we’re glad we did. It was beautiful! Now that the festivities are over, it’s back to the usual activities, which always includes a little shopping ;)
I’m in one of my MUST-DECORATE-MY-HOUSE mode again, and the easiest way is to add some artwork. Seriously, not rocket science. What is difficult though is finding pieces that: 1) you actually like 2) that fit with your room’s color scheme + style and 3) that aren’t ridiculously expensive. One particular artist (collective) I’ve fallen in love with is Oliver Gal.
Nothing makes my day more than finding amazing pieces for sale at my favorite stores. The 2 I’ve been frequenting lately? Reddz Trading (a consignment store) and White House Black Market. Here are the goodies I scored today!
One of my favorite places to shop is HomeGoods, so I was absolutely ecstatic when one opened up 5 minutes away from me. I’ve lost track of the number of things I’ve bought there, but during one of my recent trips I caved and bought some acrylic containers for my makeup. I previously used a cake stand to display some of my prettier makeup pieces, but it wasn’t very efficient in terms of storage and organization. I considered Muji cases, but they were expensive and too big. These acrylic cases from HomeGoods were the perfect size and didn’t overwhelm my dresser at all. […]
