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…

Sinfully Perfect Summer Nail Polishes.

Despite my hatred for summer, I will admit that I don’t loathe every aspect of it. One thing I do enjoy is the bright colors and some of the more fashionable trends that come along. I will admit, that after a long winter, I love breaking out my wedge collection and using the whole rainbow on my…

This Week in Pictures // October. 

I’ve been feeling like a broken record lately, but this week was hard. Drama with friends, family, and work were a little extreme. Stress, bad sleep schedules, and sore feelings were floating around way too much. Physical pain and emotional tolls were taken. Honestly, I just feel wiped out. On weeks like this though, I need…

Finding the Will to Clean

I was lucky enough to get Columbus day off yesterday. Drew unfortunately still ventured off to work, so I found myself home alone and holding a long to do list. I don’t know why, but those kind of days are the days I get the most done. I am able to get in a zone, have…
