I’ve always struggled with acne. Since I was a preteen, I’ve had a constant flow of black-heads, white-heads, and red/blotchy skin. Even worse, I’m always that person who HAS to pop a zit, so I’ve accrued a ton of acne scars over the years. Through all this, I’ve always religiously washed and moisturized my face, never slept with makeup on, and tested TONS of serums, acids, spot-treatments, and masks, but nothing ever seemed to work.
As a beauty blogger, I constantly try to switch up the products that I use, so I can tell you guys what’s worth your money, and what’s not. But the true test of a great product is whether or not you continually repurchase it. The ones that you always go back to time and time again. So I’ve complied a list of 6 beauty products that I always keep on my vanity, because they’re worth every penny.Read More
I've gone through so many stages of makeup routines. From putting on a full contour and cat-eye every morning to going 'minimal' and wearing nothing but concealer and mascara, and everything in between. But the thing I love about makeup is there is no wrong answer (except blue eyeshadow or too-dark foundation, those are always no-no's). You can wear as much or as little, play around with bright colors or keep it neutral, whatever you want!Read More
I had been thinking of trying eyelash extensions for awhile now. I mean, who doesn’t want to wake up with long, full, curled lashes every morning? Well I just found the best affordable eyelash extension salon in NYC, and I’m addicted to my new lashes!!Read More
It's been quite a while since I last dumped out my makeup bag to show you. Being a beauty blogger, I try out a ton of different products, but the daily routine usually stays more-or-less the same with the exception of a single-item swap here and there. I've finally gotten to a collection of products that I love, and work really well for me, so read on to find out what they are!Read More
Every pale girl has known the struggle of being told they need to "get a tan" or "go outside more", only to find that they'll burn instantly without wearing SPF 70. We're cleverly nicknamed "Casper", and flash photography commonly turns us into a version of Lord Voldemort with better lipstick and eyelashes.Read More
When I was in middle school and first beginning to live the horror of acne, I dreamed of the day I'd be in my twenties and never have to deal with another zit again. Boy, was I wrong.

It's been quite a while since I wrote one of these! February was drowned in Fashion Week coverage, so I didn't have time to write one, but I've been loving a few particular colors, trends, and makeup bits over the past two months, so here's a little peek into what I'm loving right now!Read More

This month's favorite seem to mostly revolve around accessories and skincare! I've been cutting back on the makeup-wearing lately, so I suppose this assortment makes perfect sense, though I do have one little treat in there that's a true gem! Check out what I've been loving this month below!
When it comes to skincare, Pixi is my new obsession. Besides their magical glow tonic, I've been loving their cleansing cloths to wipe away the majority of makeup before washing my face (Double-cleanse ladies! One step does not get it all off!) These are super gentle and do not irritate my skin at all!
I'm sure I've raved plenty about Pixi's Glow Tonic, but lets be real, I'm very lazy, and having these pre-soaked pads makes life so much easier! Even better, if your traveling, you can throw just a few of them in a ziplock bag and save a ton of space (and get them through TSA no problem!)
My favorite accessory finally makes the favorites list. I'm sure you've seen these in a million style posts like Brooklyn Haze, and Wilderness Knot, but they continue to be the piece I throw with every outfit again and again!
And my other staple accessory, huge earrings. These pink ones are the most recent addition to my collection, although I have the same pair in yellow, and about 10 others on rotation. It's so easy to take a simple T-shirt and jeans to a chic outfit by just popping on a pair of these!
Being on the fairer side, it's difficult to find a bronzer that doesn't look like I rubbed dirt across my face, but this super easy cream one by Milk Makeup is amazing for a ton of skin tones! For the lighter ladies, a small amount applied with fingertips and blended in with a brush works beautifully, and tanner skin tones can just build up the color and then blend out!
My two obsessions: nail polish and anything copper. Put them together and I've dies and gone to heaven! This shade looks so cute all over the nail, or as an accent on top of a different shade! Might I suggest Eternal Optimist or Ladylike?
