My Favorite Sandals

I’m not going to lie to you guys: I used to own a pair of Birkenstock clogs in elementary school back when clogs were the thing. (Remember when all your classmates wanted to own a pair of Crocs?? Those are the days I’m talking about.) After they went out of style, I tossed them to the side and never owned another pair of shoes from Birkenstock again. Well, that was the case until recently. No, I didn’t buy another pair of clogs. I’m not ready for that…yet. Instead, I bought a pair of pink suede sandals from Birkenstock. I’ve been wanting a pair of comfy, durable…

How I Balance Blogging & a Full-Time Job

To put it simply: it’s not easy. In fact, it took me a whole year to figure out a schedule that I could stick to without feeling completely overwhelmed! I work 9am-6pm Monday-Friday at a small marketing agency, and it demands a lot of my brain power. Most nights after work, I feel pretty drained and brain-fried, and all I want to do is veg-out on the couch for the rest of the night. One day I decided I didn’t want to live like a sloth anymore, so I decided to come up with a plan that would get me…

Boxycharm Unboxing (April 2017)

Here we are again with another Boxycharm unboxing! I have to say, I wasn’t too impressed with this month’s box. Of course I didn’t expect to like every single box I received, but lately I’ve been feeling a bit bored and decided to cancel (gasp!). I did, however, sign up for Ipsy to give that a try, so more about that soon I hope! I still think Boxycharm is a great subscription box. Who doesn’t love getting a box full of full-sized products for a fraction of the price? We’ve received some bangers for sure, but the nice thing about these month-to-months is…

A Simple and Soft Peachy Makeup Look

I mentioned in my Beauty Picks for Spring post that the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette ($49) was one of my favorite warmer-weather palettes. Even though it’s only been a few weeks since that post, I still hold true to that statement. The colors in this palette have been a dream to play around with, and I love creating fresh, fun looks like this one. Here’s my step-by-step to get this simple, soft peachy eye with a bright lip look: FOR THE EYES: After priming my eyes, I started off by dusting the color ‘Georgia’ across my crease. This one served as my transition shade.…

Cover to Cover 02: ’13 Reasons Why’ Book Review

Unless you’ve been living somewhere completely disconnected from the internet, you’ve probably heard of the newest Netflix sensation 13 Reasons Why. My husband and I recently binge-watched the entire show in a couple of days. It was compelling. I read the book early on in high school, but I don’t remember it having much of an effect on me. I think this was mostly due to my young age, but I also know part of it was I didn’t relate to the story; it was hard for me to understand something that I had never experienced myself. Now that I’m older and have more life experience…
