September Goals.

Graduate school and the high school I work at both started this week. To say the least, it was an exhausting, difficult, tearful week. But after handing out a whole bunch of syllabi, receiving my own stack of them, and juggling a few things, I think I have some idea on how the next 4…

Makeup and Self Portraits.

Yesterday was an interesting day, but it at least was a killer makeup day. I tried quite a few new products, like my jumbo UD setting spray, my NYX super nude colored gloss, and the famed RCMA powder. On top of all that, I also tried a few new techniques, like using my Becca highlight…

Those quotes are very prominent because my break is already jam packed with doctor appointments, friend…

ColourPop Haul.

Metallic lipsticks and glosses are probably one of the newest and hottest makeup products on the market right now. Between Kylie’s constantly sold out website, Milani’s completely tapped out reserves in drugstores, and the craze hitting other big brands recently, I wasn’t surprised when lip-centric ColourPop announced their own line. Between their consistent, very low…

My 2016 Academic Planner.

I have spent a lot of time and money and years looking for the perfect planner for myself. I love the idea of paper planners and a hands on way of staying organized; having all my dates and dreams in one place, but it never seemed to work for me. I wanted to love so…
