My $5 Nail Holy Grail

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

How I Made My Own DIY Bangs (& You Can Too)

Let’s be honest: most of us have had an undying desire to see what we’d look like with bangs. Whether they’re blunt, choppy, long or short; there’s always that “what if” in the back of our heads. So what if you had a dramatic childhood experience? If that model on your Instagram Explore page can pull them off, they can’t be that bad; right?

What’s in my Makeup Bag: The Essentials vs. the Extras

Makeup is my kryptonite. I’m always seeing new products while shopping, browsing social media or talking to other beauty-obsessed people. I can spend hours on YouTube looking at different tutorials and reviews.

I Got the LORAC Pro Eyeshadow Palette for $12

So maybe I didn’t get the LORAC Pro ($44) palette, but this palette is such an unbelievable dupe I might as well have. Normally I’m pretty skeptical about products claiming to live up to the quality of high-end beauty favorites, but the hype that Makeup Revolution’s Iconic Pro 1 ($12) eyeshadow palette has received was too good to pass up.

Winter Skincare Routine

Now that we are in the heat (or should I say cold) of winter, my skincare routine has changed due to the harsh weather. The cold air and temperatures below 0° are not some of my favorite things, and your skin isn’t too fond of them either.

REVIEW: Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

Anastasia Beverly Hills is a makeup brand that has been talked about nonstop within the last few years. Starting with their DIPBROW™ Pomade to their Contour Cream Kit and Sugar Glow Kit, their success in the beauty industry has been spreading to all areas of makeup.

I Bought a Bathing Suit Set Online for $10 and This is What Happened

If you haven’t heard, a brand called Romwe has been surfacing along with a few other online brands that are offering trendy clothes for incredible prices. I was skeptical of the quality and the legitimacy of trying one of these sites, but I decided to take the plunge and expand my bathing suit wardrobe since I haven’t been able to allow myself to spend $20+ on a top or bottom alone.
