Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

I love pumpkin. Each fall, I buy anything & everything that is pumpkin flavoured. Coffee, breads, candles, soaps. I just couldn't get enough. Then with the transition from fall to winter, pumpkin was moved to the back burner. This January I am bringing back my love of pumpkin with this smoothie recipe.

Birchbox | January 2013

 My January 2013 Birchbox arrived this Saturday. The theme is Best Year Ever, and I love the bonus poster that came with this months box. I also am really happy overall with my samples! I haven't been as impressed with my last couple of BB's, so it's great to be excited about it again! Click for more!

18K Gold Nails

Ever since I tested out the 18K gold top coat at Sephora, I was in love. Unfortunately, I did not share that feeling for the thirty dollar price tag. It seems now that most major nail polish brands carry a real gold top coat, and I was happy to see that Zoya came out with one last Fall, Zoya Gilty. Even happier that I grabbed a flash promo that made Zoya Gilty free. It has definitely become one of my favourite polishes! Here are some of the colour combinations I have done so far.

Review | boscia be brilliant set

As I was packing for the holidays to head back to my hometown, I stocked up on mini's of my favourite products. I had just run out of my sample of the boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel that I received in a Birchbox and knew I had to find another one to replace it. boscia has quickly become my favourite skincare brand! I received a sample of their BB Cream & the Cleansing Gel in a Birchbox, and ever since I have been hooked. I love their philosophy of combining the power of nature and science. I also find the sulfate, paraben, and preservative free formulas to be gentle on my sensitive skin.

Apartment Therapy's January Cure

I love Apartment Therapy as a resource for organization, decoration, and inspiration for small space living. Though my apartment in Brooklyn is definitely tiny, it's a huge reflection on my personal self. So I decided to participate in the January Cure to help me focus on my living space which can be taken for granted in the day-to-day shuffle. Every day of the month, you will get an email to an "assignment" to help you stay on track getting your home clean and organized. It just started on January 2nd so feel free to sign up for the emails here!

New Year's Day | 2013

It's a brand new year! I can't believe that it is 2013 already. I had a great 2012 & have a good feeling that 2013 is going to be amazing as well (though I am not in love with the number.) And with this new year comes a new calendar. I love my technology and am completely dependent on my iPhone, but there is something about a physical planner that I can't give up. It's one my favourite things to purchase each year. Today I thought I would share with you some of my agendas to inspire you to be a little more organized in 2013.
