Just Say No to New Year’s Resolutions!

New Year’s Resolutions are stupid. Harsh, but true. How many resolutions did you make last year? How many did you keep? My point, exactly. I once tried to give up caffeine for New Year’s. I had two weeks of migraines and I caved after 3 months. I am now a proud Coke Zero addict. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about positive change. We all have room for improvement, even Beyonce, but that desire for change has to come from within us, not the pressures of society or...

A Hidden Gem

I am a cheapskate. It’s true. I never pay full price for anything and rarely shop any rack other than clearance. Because of my NEED to get a great bargain, I am not the biggest fan of this boutique trend. Sure, boutiques are all the rage right now, with their “one-of-a-kind” looks and celebrity outfit recreations, but how much bang for your buck are you actually getting? I want to jump on the bandwagon, I really do, but the thrifter in me makes it difficult and I die a little...

Eyelash Extensions: Are They Worth the Hype?

Eye makeup is the bane of my existence. It truly makes or breaks your face, no? Tell me you don’t wake up and just look at your eyes and think “What am I going to do today!?!?!?!” It doesn’t help that my lashes are blonde so they never show up without makeup (thanks genetics). We all want our eye makeup to be ‘on point’ and so we watch tutorial after tutorial, or look up Pinterest hacks, or if you’re like me – you watch the ladies at the Mac counter and just try to copycat...
