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…

The Best Concealer for Achieving the Perfect ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Look

It’s freezing out right now, but you know what? I’m going to hold on to hopes of warmer days ahead. Therefore, it’s time for me to start thinking of and purchasing beauty products that will be beneficial in the summer. A few months ago I walked in to Sephora specifically to purchase the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($30)– everyone has it, everyone loves it and I wanted to try it for myself. I surprisingly wasn’t big on concealer prior to this, I…

A Nude Lipstick Perfect for My Complexion!

It’s no surprise that I like an eye catching lip color, but I’ve always envied those who can pull off a matte nude look.

Face Time with Chantz Brewer

I have so many wonderful and amazing women friends and when conceptualizing my blog I knew that at some point I wanted to highlight each of them, what they do and of course their beauty routine. Beauty as a whole and our particular daily and weekly rituals are a constant topic of discussion — whether while on gchat at work or on Saturday’s at brunch. For the first installment of “Face Time,” I sat down with my beautiful friend Chantz…

The Best Blue Nail Polish Ever, By Gelish

A good blue polish is hard to come by. Which is why I just had to share details on this color I recently applied to my nails from Gelish in “Mali-Blu Me Away.” ($13) It is bold and radiant enough that it makes a statement, but somehow remains neutral enough not to clash with any colors I’m wearing. In the photos the polish is actually about a week old and still upheld the shine, and it hasn’t chipped! I’m writing this…

New Year’s Eve Beauty Inspiration

I’ll admit, I tried to skip going out for New Year’s this year, but I’m such a sucker for getting dressed up that when I was doing the shoot for this post I got a serious case of FOMO. Afterwards I texted my girlfriend like, what we doin’?! I just love an opportunity to go all out with my look and New Year’s Eve is always the most fun. Whether you decide to keep it to an intimate house party,…
