elf Long-lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow vs. Smudge Pot

Ever since I got a few of the Elf Smudge Pots, I have been obsessed. $2 (though, looks like they are now $3) for a creamy, long-lasting cream shadow that looks great alone or as a base. The shades are quite nice, but I think I have all the colours I wanted, so when I saw this rosy, quartz shade, Soiree, in the Long-lasting Lustrous formula I had to give it a go.

Nail Art | Pumpkin Patch

I am a pumpkin enthusiast, so of course, I had to try out some pumpkin nails to celebrate the start of fall.

FOTD | Wet n Wild Smoke & Melrose

It seems I can't resist a Wet n Wild release. Nor can I resist rose-toned shadows. You would think the Naked 3 palette would have me set. Smoke & Melrose is a limited edition 5-pan eyeshadow palette from my favourite drugstore brand, Wet n Wild.

Lifestyle | Barstool & Cart Decor with Chairish

I live in a teeny-tiny Brooklyn apartment. I count my lucky stars that I have a breakfast bar. I literally do everything at this counter-top. All meals of the day-coffee, food, drinks- and at times it turns into a makeshift office... I have been a bit obsessed with bar carts lately, so I thought I would share a little inspiration/wishlist for creating my own bar space-even in my small place.

Two New WnW Lipsticks | Wine Room & Bare it All

Well, one is new to me, and the other is new in general. I warned you that I was excited about the WnW releases, so here are some more lip product swatches. I am also loving my little gourd. Isn't he cute?

Fall Wet n Wild Balm Stains | 2 am Call Time & Lady in the Vamp

I am pretty excited about all the new Wet n Wild releases. Wet n Wild is one of my favourite drugstore brands. They are cruelty-free, super cheap, and easily accessible at your local RiteAid, Walgreens, Duane Reade, etc. The Halloween collection has been trickling in and soon the Fall. I thought I would share one of the new limited edition Balm Stain shades I picked up, 2 am Call Time, and an old favourite from the initial release of the Balm Stains last year, Lady and the Vamp.

Fall Flavours

For my birthday, Preston picked out an assortment of fall-themed goodies for me. He fought me a bit on pulling out the Halloween decorations though...But it all worked out as this weekend felt amazingly Autumn-like.

PopSugar Must Have | September 2014

It's been a few since I ordered a PopSugar box, but as September was my birthday month, and a scarf spoiler was revealed, I jumped back on the wagon.

Hello Fall!

Well, we aren't quite there yet, but I surely am looking forward to it. They say summer is the season of relaxation, but I have never found it to be that way. I think summer is just a bit too hectic. Planning trips, trying to fit in so many activities and visits from friends. All great things, of course, but not the usual. In Autumn, I feel like I have fallen back into my routine. And for me, a routine helps make managing my time and mind a lot easier. This year is a bit different as I am balancing out some new life events (*cough cough* the 40 hour work week), so we will see how the rest of this year goes....

And I mean, who doesn't want views like this.

Birthday Wishlist

It's almost my birthday! I am pretty excited, though I can't believe I will be 24. Mid-twenties...when did that happen? Anyway I thought I would share some items on my wishlist.

Summer 2014

Happy Labor Day! Today marks the unofficial, official end of Summer. Despite hailing from Florida, the land of pools and beaches, I am not much of a fan of the season. A good week or two of summer activities, and I'm ready for fall. Even so, I had a nice summer and thought I'd share some of my favourite moments of the season...
