My Favorite Conditioner for Fine, Tangle-Prone Hair

If you have fine hair, then you know all too well about the struggles of knots and tangles. If you top that off with being tender-headed, then you have a recipe for disaster when it comes to getting your hair styled. My eyes have watered many a time at the hands of my hair stylists, and I’ve even been the source of my own affliction when trying to brush out those awful knots. Brushing my hair helps temporarily, but 10 minutes later the pesky strands find their way back to each other. Fine hair is prone to tangles, and luckily there…

Making the Cut

I’m no stranger to the scissors. Since high school, I’ve been doing this thing where I grow my hair out really, really long only to cut it all off when I get bored. While I like the idea of long, flowy hair, I’ve always felt more like myself in short hair. There’s something liberating about getting all that hair chopped; in some ways it’s a bit rebellious, but it’s also majorly chic. Here are some reasons why I love having short hair: You aren’t a slave to it anymore because it’s a lot easier to take care of short hair! While I’ve…

Trading a Purse for a Backpack

One of my favorite words in the English dictionary is convenience. I choose flats over heels, a five minute makeup routine over a 30 minute one, and of course I choose a backpack over a purse. Don’t get me wrong; there are days when I like to dress up in heels, spend extra time on my makeup, and carry a purse around. However, most of the time I just like to be comfortable. By backpack, I don’t mean Jansport or L.L. Bean. Think smaller and more stylish. If it has two straps that hook onto my shoulders and it looks good while…

Simple Blue Stripes

Maybe it’s just the bell sleeves, but this top gives me major vintage vibes. Just pair it with some flare jeans and it’ll look like you stepped out from a different decade! I love that we’re constantly recycling styles from the fashonistas before us. This past fall I remember being so confused walking through the clothing section at Target because it felt like I was in the 90s! All the clothes looked like something you’d wear to a Nirvana concert. I’m always fascinated by trends; we get embarrassed by things such as what we wore, how we applied our makeup, styled our hair,…

Full Face with Five Products

While I love experimenting with full-glam makeup, some of my most favorite looks are actually very minimal. The best thing about these fresh and light makeup looks is that they’re very quick because they’re so simple! My day-to-day makeup routine is usually pretty low-maintenance, especially in the summer. Something about the extreme heat and intense humidity keeps me from wanting to apply too much on my face. Luckily, there are ways to create beautiful makeup looks using just a few holy grail products from your stash. Here are my five favorite products to use in my quick, effortless makeup routine:…
