6 Under $100 Beauty Gifts for Mother’s Day

Mother's Day

I love my momma! She’s literally my best friend, biggest cheerleader, confidant, therapist and so forth. I can literally go on. Therefore, if I have any excuse to showcase the love I have for her, I take it. And seeing as she’s just as beauty obsessed as I am, this Mother’s Day I plan on pampering her with something along those lines. I won’t say what it is here, since she reads my blog every day, ha! Instead, I’ve rounded…

My $6 Skin Savior: Korean Sheet Masks by LEADERS

When I tell you I am addicted to masking — I’m not joking. Hard stop. It all started when I was a little girl and used to see my mom and grandma applying those facial masks that you peel off at night. I’d always get super excited when my mom told me she’d be using one because she would let me help her peel it off. Back then I didn’t fully understand all the benefits that masking had, I more so just…

Give Your Nails a Fresh Intro to Spring with Mint Polish!

I decided on a whim to get mint green nails as my “intro to spring” color and I am seriously considering re-polishing them this color the next time I visit the nail salon! Green is probably one of the most underrated colors in my opinion — I honestly forget about it all the time. Which could also be because there isn’t much grass here in NYC. Nevertheless, about once a year I dip into the world of green polish and…

New Red Alert! LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick

You all know I love a strong red lip. My go-to is generally Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso, but when I find other good reds I have to give them a shoutout. I recently got my hands on the LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick ($10) in my March Birchbox and brought it along with me to Cuba. I had never previously heard of the brand LOC and was pleasantly surprised at just how pigmented the color was. It’s just the…

My Secret to Radiant Skin? The Fresh Soy Face Cleanser. And It’s Only $15!

I first got my hands on the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser ($15) when I was shopping in Sephora this past September — because it was my birthday month, they offered a free gift with purchase. I initially chose the Fresh items because I wanted to try the mask (I’m a mask fiend), but ended up loving the cleanser more! I’m typically someone who likes a cleanser with tiny micro beads that exfoliate the skin, so I can “feel” like it’s really working. However,…

3 Glossier Products I’ll Be Rocking All Summer ’17

Glossier

When it comes to clothing I don’t necessarily have a typical “uniform,” I’d consider myself more of a style “chameleon” if you will, and dress depending particularly on my mood. Makeup on the other hand, I keep pretty routine on a day-to-day basis. I have a specific no-fuss look I like to maintain, that still makes a statement. In the summer I gravitate towards lightweight products but keep the formula for my face beat consistent–bold brows, rosy cheeks and a highlight.…

Face Time with Brittany Miller

It’s no secret that I just got back from Cuba — if you follow me on Instagram I’m sure you’re tired of my posts from the trip. The whole reason I went in the first place was for my best friend Brittany Miller’s birthday and for the second installment of “Face Time” I had to highlight her. When we’re not talking about our favorite TV shows, the men in our lives, politics and pop culture–we’re completely consumed with discussions on…
