“Hot, But Old”

I was walking down the street the other day (I may or may not have been on my way to get an apple cider donut), nonchalantly walking and listening to music. (I've been non-stop listening to Fashion by The Royal Concept because it's so damn catchy, and because I imagine my life to be like…

What’s In My Giant Trenta (My Ride or Die Drink)

"Why does Chrissey love this palm tree dress so much?" "Why does she love green so much?" "God, her life is such a mess because her nail polish is chipped." Funny enough, this post is about none of those things. It's not even about how my trenta cup isn't even a trenta cup... Starbucks lied…

The Three Dupes I (Actually) Use, All The Time 

Because I promised you all dupes, and I think this cancels out my last post where I exposed you all to high-end makeup temptation?

The Undupable Makeup Products (Top Three)

I opted for my trusty Charming Charlie flats, though. I…

A Guide to…Dressing For The Job You Want

Both outfits from Extra Petite. I had an interview earlier this week, and I remember running around my room, freaking out about what to wear. Dressing for an interview is one of the most difficult situations that you can dress for, especially since there is so much at stake--you're really dressing to impress. You're selling you--and…

Italian Fest 2016–I Love Sangria and Pasta

After lots of work, stress, and a whole lot of being busy, I was definitely more than relieved when my friends said that we should go to Italian Fest last night. I love Festa Italiana, I've gone every single year (multiple times even!) since I've moved out here. It's quite possibly my favorite event of…
