Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Soft Matte Lip Cream Review

I’m gonna get straight to the point: I don’t like this product. BUT! Your mileage may vary. I bought this product purely because of the packaging. It has a cute person on it with blush and long lashes and dark black bangs. Way to win me over? Give a person dark black bangs. Lol. The tube is a darker and dustier pink than the actual … Continue reading Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Soft Matte Lip Cream Review

I Want to be a Synchronized Swimmer

My favorite Olympic sports have always been the ones with an element of art to them, like gymnastics and figure skating. Today, a new love has been kindled, one that is possibly stronger than the love I have for those two sports combined. And that love is for synchronized swimming. The Olympic women’s duet event took place today, and I watched the whole thing with … Continue reading I Want to be a Synchronized Swimmer

Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lipstick Review

I was really excited to try out the Burt’s Bee’s lipsticks because I’m a huge fan of their products, particularly their lip balms. I bought these about two months ago around the time that I decided to switch to less-toxic makeup. I wanted to make the switch as quickly and conveniently as possible. At $8 each, the Burt’s Bees lipsticks were a relatively affordable and … Continue reading Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lipstick Review

Local Waitress Gets Through Her Day by Pretending She’s at the Beach

I recently thrifted this really cute chambray dress. My mom says that it makes me look like a waitress, but that’s okay with me. I tried to pair it with more summery accessories. I’ve been wanting to go to the beach for ages, but I can’t muster up the energy to take the two hour bus ride there. If only Miami’s public transit system were … Continue reading Local Waitress Gets Through Her Day by Pretending She’s at the Beach

Peter Pilotto Resort 2017

At first I was going to write about my favorite pieces from different resort collections, but to be honest I am so totally in love with the Peter Pilotto collection that I’m making a post dedicated just to it. I love simplicity, romance, ¬†dramatic volume and color, and this collection played to every one of those things. There’s also a Latin American vibe to it … Continue reading Peter Pilotto Resort 2017

Clip on Earrings and “Painted” Shorts

Yesterday was¬†a pretty good day. I got a lot of work done in my printmaking class, and I managed to develop some film in the photography studio. Plus I had an awesome burrito from a place called Cantina Grill (free of cost, thanks to my friend Shannon!) This was the outfit that I wore: a black sleeveless turtleneck and a pair of shorts with a … Continue reading Clip on Earrings and “Painted” Shorts

The “Effortless” Cool-Girl Look for Less

Now, don’t get me wrong. I love brands like Glossier and Milk Makeup. They have an “I’m not even trying” vibe that I’ve been identifying with more and more. But $26 to look like you’re not wearing foundation? And another $20 for some added color to your cheeks and lips? It’s just not worth the money to me. That’s not to say that I’ll never … Continue reading The “Effortless” Cool-Girl Look for Less
