NARS Creamy Concealer is a God

Image
I have been using this concealer for the past month and I love it! 
When it comes to pricey makeup products, I always weigh the pros and cons for a while (usually a couple months) before deciding whether or not it is worth it. Even though this concealer is not the most expensive one out there, it is still $29, which is a bit much considering I am saving for my study abroad. However, I have wanted this concealer since last winter. I would literally fawn over it as I watched videos and read blogs that raved about the quality. So, when it came time for me to purchase a new concealer after my Maybelline Fit Me ran completely out (yes, I used every last bit of that concealer), I knew it was time to treat myself. 
Some things I love about this product: - Perfect color for my skin (Chantilly.... the lightest one obviously) - Hides my dark circles under my eyes (especially in the mornings when I get to work looking half-dead) - Blends easily - Lasts all day - Very lightweight on my skin
So I would re…

Surprise Day!

Image
Hello lovely humans!  I recently had an amazing day with two of my best friends, Mary Gael and Kelly. These girls have been there with me through the thick and thin of high school and the past two years of whirlwind college adventures. Since Mary Gael goes to school in Ohio and Kelly in Philadelphia (and me in New Jersey), I only get my breaks to spend with them. Let's just say we are certainly making the most of our time together. This past weekend was Kelly's last weekend home before she goes to Ireland for a six week program through her university. Then when she comes back, I leave for England the next week. Mary Gael leaves for England at the end of the summer for a whole year and Kelly goes back to Philly for her semester. SO this weekend was very important for us and we happened to stumble upon some exciting things....

We met for brunch at 11 am at First Watch, a cute daytime cafe that has amazing organic food. I got an egg white omelet with spinach, turkey, feta, tomato, …

My Sunday Bag Essentials

Image
Hello lovely people!
So I thought I would do a quick peek inside my typical Sunday bag when I am just going around running errands. My bag this Sunday has a few key essentials...
- Eyedrops and my prescription glasses are a must. I have pretty sensitive eyes and although I wear contacts almost everyday, I like to have my glasses with me just in case, as well as some irritation relieving rewetting eye drops.  - NARS pressed powder and a Real Techniques Multitask brush for when my nose goes shiny, as it ALWAYS does.  - My iPhone 5S - Essie Nail Polish in Bikini So Teeny.  - EOS... I have four of the flavors and I am almost completely done with this one in Strawberry. - Stila Eyeliner to touch up when my eyes have eaten every bit of eyeliner up on my water line. - Kate Moss Rimmel lipstick in 103 which is legitimately the prettiest color on me that I own.  - Soap & Glory Hand Food. I ran out of my little bottle of this and invested in a bigger one... I still throw it in my bag despite its lar…

Recipe | Watermelon Rice Krispies

June is here which means SUMMER HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!
I can't wait to make fun summer inspired recipes for the next two months before I leave for England. I will share as much as I can with you and hopefully inspire you to try these out as well.
My little sister and I saw Ingrid from MissGlamorazzi do these awesome watermelon inspired Rice Krispie treats in one of her most recent videos and we immediately knew we had to make them! She made a very healthy version but we knew our brothers and our dad would want to eat these so we went old school and used the traditional marshmallows and butter routine :) Ingrid always posts really yummy and exciting recipes that I definitely want to try.

Anyway, here are some photos of our process and the final product! DISCLAIMER: We are not shown in any of these photos because we had both just showered after our 4 mile workout and were not looking so hot.
THE RECIPE: 
Ingredients: (We made three batches which totaled 24 slices) One box of Rice Krispies  One…
