I’ve recently started a position in New York City. While I absolutely love it, the commute is something that I’m not a huge fan of. In order to get where I need to be, I need to be up, ready and out the door by 6 a.m. Luckily, I’ve mastered doing my makeup in 10 minutes (or sometimes less) so I can enjoy those extra few minutes of sleep.
Eyelash extensions are arguably the biggest beauty trend at the moment. While they used to be something celebrities or the well-fortuned indulged in, I’ve come across more and more millennials splurging to have gorgeous, long lashes. I found myself looking into their cost and maintenance but, with my recent college graduate budget, couldn’t allow myself to commit to something so expensive. Yet here I am, less than $10 later, with a full set of thick, lengthy eyelashes.
I’ve had the same pair of glasses for over four years, so you could say I’ve been overdue for something new. But as a recent college graduate, I was not in the market to be paying $400 for a nice pair of frames (let alone prescription lenses). When I heard about EyeBuyDirect, I was happy to find out I could afford a new pair on a recent college graduate budget.
I’ve mentioned many times before how I have a personal bucket list of things I want to do whether that be within the next few months or the next few years. In my most recent blog, I stated that it’s a goal of mine to check off as much as I can this summer. One of those items that’s been on my list is The Lights Fest.
I’m always looking for new hikes and new sights to see. For me, a hike is such an underrated adventure. It truly allows you to appreciate the beautiful world we live in and often take for granted.
I’ve mentioned this in a few earlier blog posts: my #1 rule when it comes to fashion is comfort. Of course this doesn’t always apply, but I try to make sure my day-to-day wardrobe is suitable for day-to-day wear. Going on vacation this past weekend, I wanted to look stylish (gotta get that ‘gram) while still keeping my #1 rule in mind.
There are a few fashion staples I swear by and one of those is jumpsuits. Growing up going to New York City, I would always struggle between finding a balance of something that is chic and fashionable but still sensible and comfortable (especially with all the walking that’s bound to be done). Typically, I go for something casual paired with my Nikes. However, my most recent city excursion called for me to face my seemingly never-ending city outfit dilemma.
I’ve had a bucket list started since high school (possibly earlier). Skydiving has been on that list for quite some time; I’ve been wanting to go for years. While I’ve been wanting to go for what seems like forever, part of me had settled on the fact that I might just never get around to it. But here I am, one day later, having jumped out of a plane 10,000 feet in the sky.
The week leading up to my college commencement ceremony, a few of my friends and I thought it would be fun to do a group wine tasting. Going to a winery is something I’ve been meaning to check off my to-do list since turning 21, but I never quite got around to it. Luckily, Cream Ridge Winery offered the perfect laid back and intimate wine tasting experience.
For those who don’t know, I play guitar. While I absolutely love having long nails (and have no problem growing my own out), I can’t keep them long because it gets in the way of my playing. I don’t mind keeping my nails short, but when special events roll around an elegant nail really pulls your look together.
