Reading has always been a huge part of my life. I still remember the first time I picked up a Harry Potter book at my school book fair. Also known as the best day ever, with all the books to choose from and an ice cream social. A good book is a magical thing. It provides you with inspiration, detail, intrigue and emotion. That being said, I’ve compiled some of my favorite form of escapism for you to delve into. This particular collection is my summer reading list, Mystery/Fantasy/Sci-Fi edition. Two I have read and recommend, and two I am currently reading. [Read more…]
When I was finishing my senior year of high school, I was a completely different person. It’s actually crazy to consider now, I barely can remember who I was, I was a child. But, a determined child at that, and full of passion and ambition. My family has always been loving (plenty of tough love too) and supportive, for this I am really grateful. But it wasn’t always easy, especially through my teenage years. Now I know some people are forced to grow up sooner than most, and for that I respect you 100%.

Day parties at Dolores Park, road trips to L.A., cocktails with your girls, anything besides sitting down and accomplishing your to-do list. And honestly, even when you are feeling productive, it’s so easy to get brain block, uninspired and discouraged. [Read more…]

At long last; literally, it took my package 16 days to arrive- it’s here. The iluvsarahii x Colourpop collab we’ve all been waiting for. Karen Gonzalez is one of my favorite influencers. She’s funny, creative and massively talented as a makeup artist. As soon as I opened my package, I instantly dug in to start playing with the gorgeous colors. Colourpop is a now popular cosmetics brand, known for it’s affordable prices and amazing pigmentation. Late delivery and shitty customer service aside, I was stoked for this collab between the brand and the MUA. [Read more…]
