October Wishlist

1) Vertical Plait Crochet Cream Cardigan - Romwe. $79. I need a big comfy cardigan for the fall! 2) Black Turnup - TOPSHOP. $20. I love beanies and think they can add so much to an outfit. I definitely want to find one in black and one in maroon.  3) Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh - Sephora. $22 each. I love this scent and the rollerballs are so convenient to carry around for a quick freshen up.  4) The Righteous Butter - Soap & Glory. $20. I have really been loving Soap & Glory's Hand Food so I want to try other products. Know any good ones besides this butter? 5) Knee Socks - H&M. $11. Essential. I have so many socks but only a couple knee highs. I need more so they can casually peak through boots! 6) Sephora's Collection Smart Liner - Sephora. $14. This is a new product by Sephora and I really need a new liquid eyeliner. I want to give this one a try. It makes a lot of wonderful claims that I hope ring true for the product.  "Super-easy application and mis…

Day in the Life | Broadway Flea Market & First Date

Hello there! This is my 100th post!!! I am so excited and I can't believe that I am already at this point in my blog.  

I just had such an amazing weekend and I thought I would do a day in the life post to tell you all about it!

Several friends and I woke up bright and early last Sunday morning to catch the 8:31 am train into NYC. We planned out our day so that we could go to Broadway Cares Flea Market in Times Square and then hopefully see First Datewith student rush tickets. We arrived in the city and went immediately to stand at the box office at the Longacre Theater. When we arrived we were second in line and that line began to grow! We waited for two hours, taking turns going to Starbucks for drinks and when the theater opened at 12 pm, we got our tickets. 
We headed over to Shake Shack for lunch, Forever 21 for some shopping, and then to the Broadway Flea Market to meet some stars. 
I had one goal that day and that was to meet the infamous Cherry Jones. She not only is a Broadway…

Tin Can Challenge

Hello everybody! 
So I am very excited to present to you my second Youtube video for this blog! 
I am so nervous for you all to see it, yet I am very excited! 

I posted this video, which is the Tin Can Challenge, on my Youtube account that I share with my friend Savannah. Make sure to subscribe and thumbs up the video if you like it :)

So, here it is! Let me know in the comments what you think! Our next video will go up next week so make sure to check back. If you have any ideas of a video you would like us to make, let me know in the comments. 


Review: LUSH Mask of Magnaminty

So I thought I would do an official "review of a product" post. I normally just review products in my monthly favorites posts, but I simply cannot wait two and a half more weeks to tell you about this mask! 

So here are all the little things that I love about this mask:
- Its earthy, minty smell
- It feels refreshing
- The exfoliating Aduki Beans are lovely on my skin
- The tingy-clean sensation I feel as I wash it off
- How it is made with vegetarian ingredients and like all LUSH products, the pot is made from 100% recycled plastic

So, the LUSH associates recommend you apply this mask once every week as a weekly maintenance routine. I only use it on my face and I am already finding it has decreased the size of my pores. I leave it on for a good ten minutes and then gently wash off with warm water and pat dry. 

I would say this is my favorite LUSH product at the moment. For those of you with sensitive skin, I believe this product would be fine for you. I have read some reviews that …

Song of the Week No. 11

I can't believe how busy life has been since returning to college. I miss being able to post every day or two. My past week has simply been a whirlwind! 

This song of the week is "Sweet Louise" by The Belle Brigade. 
It has been mine and my roommate Michelle's alarm every morning. Waking up to it is SO delightful. It is a beautiful song and it just makes me feel ready for the day! Give it a listen and tell me what you think <3

Monthly Favorites | August

SO, after over a week of not having my laptop to be able to blog on, I finally have it returned and fixed! I am so relieved and now without further ado, here are all of monthly favorites from August, starting with the beauty products and a book:
- Philosophy's Purity Facial Cleanser is amazing! I used it for about three weeks with the Clarisonic and now that I am at college again (without my mother's Clarisonic), I have been using it just by itself. As I work it into a lather, I can feel my skin being refreshed. I really enjoy the general scent of it and so far I like how it has been cleaning my face. 
- Now, everyone and their mother has been talking about the Maybelline Color Tattoos and I thought I would hop on the bandwagon and give them a whirl. I really have been enjoying 'Bold Gold' and 'Tough as Taupe'. They are extremely matte and I have been finding that I don't need to wear an eye primer underneath because the shadow remains matte and keeps my uppe…

Ugh Computer Problems!

Hello there!

So, I have been so frustrated lately because I have been unable to post on my blog due to a keyboard issue I've been having with my MacBook Pro. Unfortunately, it is going to be a few more days until I can get some posts up. I have so much in store and I am very anxious to post but I can't until I have my computer back :( I am currently writing this on my iPhone and it is quite difficult. Anyway, I'm staying positive and hoping to update within the next few days. 

Get excited for a Monthly Favorites which I have been working on, a Dorm Tour, maybe a campus tour of some cool places in my college, a haul from LUSH, and maybe just a lifestyle photo post! 

I hope you all are well! Good luck to all who are starting back at school :)
