This month, I’m gearing up for the cold weather by washing my hair less and using hydrating shampoo and dry shampoo for those in between days. I’ve also found an amazing moisturizer for my skin, and the best brow pencil…

Have a [ lucky ] weekend

November 13, 2015


Hello! It’s been a week. And today is Friday the 13th!

After incessant rain, 80 degree temps, and swamp-like humidity, fall has arrived! I’m looking forward to an extra long walk through my ‘hood and trying out this DIY (eek!) this weekend. I’ve been all over the internet this week because… I don’t know why exactly. But the result is a plethora of links I’m excited to share. Here’s the round up. Hope you enjoy!

Have you watched Master of None yet? Aziz Ansari’s parents are all the rage.

Dear Santa, this please. Thank you.


See you next week! Xx

Not so mad ’bout plaid.

November 4, 2015


I think I’ve touched on this before, but it I’m going to repeat myself: I don’t like fall. I’m sorry pumpkin spice lovers of the world, I just don’t dig it. BUT, there is one recurring fall trend that I do love, and this year it seems bigger than ever: PLAID. While I’ve seen a lot of plaid in home decor this season (I’m lookin’ at you, Target), I prefer the classic plaid button up shirt for that fall feeling. Trade in my sandals for a pair of oxfords, and I’ve got the perfect fall uniform. Below are my the fall shirts at the top of my shopping list…
