I love Etsy. I LOVE Etsy. I go on Etsy every day. (P.S. That was an Oprah reference. #Bye) I usually don’t mind browsing through pages and pages to find the perfect item. But, when I’m feeling lazy I can definitely count on the following shops to find great items: Myron Street Vintage I don’t know what I love more- the clothes or the modeling. I’ve … Continue reading My Favorite Etsy Shops
My camera is officially useless! I’ve had the same Nikon point and shoot for about three years now, and it’s been giving me issues for months. It randomly overexposes shots, and it doesn’t really focus that well most of the time, hence the grainy photos below. Let’s pretend I was going for that aesthetic 😉 This past week was full of boring outfits for me. … Continue reading OOTD- 3/10/16
I received the Colourpop Ultra Satin Lips on Monday! I ordered three shades: Tansy, Panda, and Frick N’ Frack. I must say that I’m not really a fan of the names. I think they’ll be a little embarrassing to say when others ask what lipstick I’m wearing. I got this color on a whim. I had initially chosen Dopey, which was a dusty … Continue reading Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lips- Swatches & First Impressions!
I just watched the Marni Fall 2016 show (on YouTube of course), and oh my goodness. If this collection doesn’t inspire you to put on dark burgundy lipstick and glamorous earrings, then you’re lying. Or maybe it’s just me that felt the need to do that. Here are a couple of my favorites from the show: The pieces are very elegant in an unexpected way. … Continue reading Marni Fall 2016
I’ve decided to go without shopping at fast fashion stores like Forever 21, H&M, and Zara. It’s difficult for me to support clothing companies that aren’t transparent and ethical in their practices. Instead, I plan to purchase clothing secondhand online or from thrift shops. The only exceptions I’ll make are for shoes and maybe some accessories, because those are the hardest things for me to find secondhand. I went to a new … Continue reading February Thrift Haul

I probably spend more time on YouTube than any other website (Reddit is a close second). It’s a big source of my inspiration, and it’s what got me into makeup so long ago. Apparently I’m subscribed to 53 channels! Most of those are comprised of fashion channels, but some of them are about random topics like art history, philosophy, and photography. I’ve listed a few … Continue reading My Favorite YouTubers
I discovered Besame Cosmetics in 2014. Back then I was in my pinup girl phase, and I was on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick to complete my look. I didn’t like a lot of the red shades I had tried before because they seemed too garish for my skin tone. In case you’ve never heard of Besame Cosmetics, they’re a company that makes reproductions of … Continue reading Besame Cosmetics Lipstick Swatches+Review

MAC’s lipsticks are some of my favorite. I own a couple of them from their matte line, and I’ve tried some of their cremesheens. However, my favorite formula has to be their satin finish. MAC’s satin lipsticks are semi-matte, so they aren’t as drying as completely matte ones, but they still offer the same amount of pigmentation. Del Rio is described as a “muted plum brown” on MAC’s website. I would’ve never picked … Continue reading MAC ‘Del Rio’ Lipstick Review
