Beauty Must-Haves For an Impromptu Night Away from Home

The other day my girlfriend Natalie and I were discussing items that women should always have in their purse when going out with a guy — you know, just in case you decide not to go home… If you’re like me, you usually travel with a mid to smaller sized cross body bag or clutch when out on the weekends, so we have to be strategic.

I Love My: Cricket Flat Iron

I’m more of a curling iron and curling wand kind of girl when it comes to my styling tools, but I finally feel like I’ve found a flat iron that straightens my hair and maintains that volume I like.

Get Baby Soft Feet, Really!

Its that time of the year again where I find myself in layers and layers of clothing just to manage the walk to the train in the morning for work. The last thing on anyone’s minds is what exactly my feet look like, but this is the best time to really prep them for a flawless spring debut. Also, it’s cuffing season. Who wants to rub an ashy heel on their significant other while cuddling? Aside from getting regular pedicures…
