Stay All Summer Makeup Routine

Wearing: Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Besos Wearing: Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Aria Wearing: Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Baci When it comes to my summertime makeup routine, one thing’s for sure: I know it needs to stay in place all day! Walking around town with mascara melting off your face isn’t a good look for anyone. In the past, I’ve mostly just avoided wearing heavy makeup in the summer. When I’m in and out of the pool, riding bikes around town, or being lazy in my backyard, how much did I need anyways? However, every…

The Scent of Summertime

With each changing of season it brings about changes to my daily routine. While I’ve already spoken to my shift in wardrobe and accessories when summer rolls around, there is one other aspect of my daily lifestyle that changes: my beauty routine. While I have regular favorites when it comes to makeup, I can’t help but love to experiment with new scents for summertime. The warm sun-soaked air and blooming flowers inspires me to change my fragrance into something more light and crisp to compliment the changes in my surroundings. The moment I smelled Miu Miu’s L’eau Bleue for the first…

How To: Glam Waves

It’s no secret that I’ve spent the better part of my twenties trying to emulate the style of the 1960’s. The feminine and ultra chic flair to dressing from that era is something I’ve always been drawn to. From the likes of Jackie Kennedy to Audrey Hepburn, these women had a knack for fashion. However, one thing I’ve learned along the way is that simply wearing their styles isn’t enough to achieve the full vintage-inspired look. The key is in taking it one step further – it’s all in the details. From the perfect cat-eye and bold red lip, to…

Carefree Curls

Come spring and summer, hair routines inevitably changes from a part of your daily routine to something you want to be as effortless and minimal as possible. That “I woke up like this” tousled look is ever covetable this time of year – there’s nothing like carefree beach hair that screams warm weather and sunny days. It’s all about looking like you didn’t put too much effort into your look. I’ve found the simplest way to achieve this style actually is, in fact, to actually put a lot less effort into your look. Going through my usual process of blowdrying, straightening and…

All Eyes on Skincare

Having attended college at the beach and spending hours soaking in the sunshine, it’s safe to say that my skin probably had a bit more exposure than it should. From a small sunburn here and there to times I didn’t even take my makeup off at night, I now look back and shake my head at my naive irresponsibility when it came to my skin. While I spent countless carefree hours catching rays in my early twenties, now that I’m officially in my late twenties (gasp!), I’ve become extra conscientious of each new freckle and fine line that takes up…

Easy Morning Hair Routine

Weekday mornings are always a challenge for me – to stay in bed and sleep in or to get up in time to do something with my hair other than throw it into a ponytail? It’s a never-ending battle! Usually, sleeping in wins. That was, until T3 Micro sent me their new featherweight compact blow dryer and straightener set to test out. At first I was a bit skeptical as to how much I would actually use it – having long hair I’ve always been an advocate of letting it air dry, as blow drying either took way too long, or left…

How To: Romantic Holiday Hair

If your holiday season is anything like mine, then you know the feeling of having less time than normal. Rushing around to finish your holiday shopping, baking that last batch of cookies – oh and when to get that manicure before your holiday party this weekend? ‘Tis the season to be on the go! And though it may also be your busiest, it’s probably also one of your social calendar’s most demanding times. It may seem like the easiest option would be to opt for your go-to hairstyle (mine would be this one), but there’s no time like holiday time…

How To: Everyday Curls

Though my hair has changed a bit over the years, going from incredibly long, to short, with bangs, and now somewhere in between, one thing has stayed consistent. I’m all about having sophisticated yet un-done curls! It’s been my go-to hairstyle since high school, and though I’ll play around with new do’s here and there, I can’t help but go back to a soft and romantic curl to feel most like myself. When my curling iron I’ve had since middle school finally reached it’s end and I was on the hunt for a new wand, there was only one brand…
