Liquid lipsticks have been all the rage it seems this past year. I myself love them, but I switch it up for different formulas (solid, glossy, metallic, every kind of lipstick is my kind of lipstick!) quite often. Typically liquid lipsticks are a great go-to for bold looks, and have the benefit of being long lasting. But sometimes, they might seem like more effort than ease! I put together this guide to liquid lipsticks for those of you who want to try them out, with some recommendations, tips & tricks.
A lot of us are always on the run, and often there doesn’t seem to be much time in the day to squeeze in socializing on top of your career. But a good work-life balance and socialization is critical to your success and happiness as a #bossgirl, trust me! I am the queen of making plans and then the day of, feeling like, “ugh, I’d rather just go home and get in my pj’s and drink wine than go out.” And trust me, there are days when I do that. But when I stick to my commitments and attend social events, I always end up happy I did. Here are some quick tips to take your day look to night out in mere minutes, if you don’t have time to go home and get ready! [Read more…]
To tell you the truth, I don’t even remember shopping at Lush a few years ago, and now I can’t live without it. My best friend Taylor was working at Lush when I first met her, and she has been my point-person for Lush recommendations and knowledge ever since. There’s just something so magical about going into a Lush store, I feel like I’m in a delicious rainbow cloud of skin-care/body-care/hair-care heaven!
I like to think I’ve always been a confident person. But that isn’t necessarily true. To this day, I still second guess myself a lot, wondering why someone hasn’t replied to my text or email quick enough, or if I will be dressed appropriately for an event I’m attending. I question “why did that person unfollow me?” Or “why didn’t I get that job offer?” and it can really start to wear you down. The truth is, everyone has insecurities, myself included, but you simply can’t let it affect you for long enough to take you off course. The bigger picture is YOU, your goals, your relationships (with yourself and others), and essentially your happiness. [Read more…]
As I get older, there is seriously nothing better than having drinks (and a cheese platter) with your friends and/or S.O. I love to relax with a nice glass of wine (or a cheap glass, seriously I am not picky) and read at night, scroll through my favorite blogs, or watch a movie with my pup and my man. Typically, wine is my go-to. But I can’t deny a deliciously concocted drink when available. I do have to admire the craftsmanship and detail that goes into all these gorgeous cocktails, especially here in the Bay Area, but let’s be real. $15 a drink on average for some egg whites and a flower frozen in an ice cube gets kinda tired after a while. So why not buy more, make more… more drunky, less money. Kidding, kind of.
So I wanted to get together some of my current obsessions to share with anyone who cares. February seemed to fly by, but all in all it was a great month to binge watch a show and do several face masks etc. Super productive. Monthly, I might add some categories or even take some away, depending on if there’s any good food in the universe during that time for example. If you guys have any opinies on these selections, please let me know! Or if you can bounce off of my taste and give me some additional tips for things to check out, I’d love to hear them!
