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.

Why You Should Add “Songs with Our Eyes Closed” by Tyler Kent White to Your Poetry Collection

I’m a huge fan of poetry, and am always looking for new books to read, but I find that a lot of today’s poets opt for simple, straightforward words. While there’s nothing wrong with this, I prefer something that is more artfully crafted. When I was on the hunt for a new book to purchase, I stumbled across “Songs with Our Eyes Closed” – Tyler Kent White’s debut poetry book that came out last summer. Here’s why you need to add it to your collection.

Review: Riverdean Watches

A few weeks ago, Riverdean Watches reached out to me via email asking if I would want to be an Influencer for their brand. Normally, I’m not one to do influencer content, but I happened to be starting a new job and had been meaning to get a new watch, so I figured there couldn’t be any harm. While I am an influencer for the brand, I still intend on giving my honest thoughts on their products.

My 10 Minute Work Makeup Routine

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.

I Did My Own Eyelash Extensions at Home for Under $10

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 Ordered Prescription Glasses Online and This is What Happened

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.

Lighting up the Sky at The Lights Fest

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.

OOTD: Let’s Go to the Beach

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.
