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…

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.

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…

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.…

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…
