One of my favorite makeup looks from my Vegas trip was the below selfie I snapped, amidst our rush to head out and enjoy our night. I never really wear false lashes, as my lashes are long and full, so I can usually get some great additional length and deep black color with my favorite mascara (the only one I use, and under $8!). After trying out some false lashes this New Years Eve, and again for a wedding in February, I decided I wanted to learn to apply them so I can wear them from time to time for special occasions. Vegas was the perfect opportunity and setting for this. I used MUA’s Glamour Volume Boosting Lash Kit. It comes with a uniquely angled lash placement tool, which really makes all the difference. I have tried to apply using tweezers before, but this tool makes for a much simpler application.I didn’t…

I’m totally inspired by the cover of the most recent issue of Elle Magazine, donning the stunning Margot Robbie who you probably know as Leo DiCaprio’s Brooklynite wife from The Wolf of Wall Street, or more recently, the sidekick to Will Smith in the movie Focus (P.S. I rented this movie a couple of weeks ago and LOVED it!). Her lived-in hair look is a true testament to the “un-done but done” texture that is the newest hair trend, and (I’m partial) something that Bumble and bumble is known to excel at. That, paired with a deep red gloss stain has me excited enough that it’s Friday (happy hour is calling my name!). I put together a couple of my favorite Bumble and bumble products that are the perfect fit for this texture: Prêt-à-Powder, a microfine loose powder that can not only be used as a dry shampoo, but can be…

The Blogger Meetup’s Orlando Refresh event was another successful blogger event with an incredible turnout of over 75 attendees! The vibes of henna tattoos and flower crowns have me feeling a bit bohemian lately. Combined with some fun accessories I received from Tuti Designs, below are some snapshots of how I’m showing off these vibes.

To get prepared for our The Blogger Meetup Miami Meet + Sweet event, fellow Co-founder Danielle (who blogs over at Shikshin) and I were so excited by the offer from the INGLOT store in Aventura to get our makeup done for our event! The Aventura store is beautiful – it’s so bright and colorful, it’s definitely like being a kid in a candy store! My makeup was done by Laura, and she was AMAZING! She did an incredible job, even on our tight time crunch! I am also totally in love with the foundation she used – it lasted through the Miami heat all day and night. It was the HD Perfect Coverup Foundation (I was shade 76). Thanks to the amazing team and INGLOT and the sweet ladies in the Aventura store for our beautiful looks!

Every girl needs a “Galentine’s Day”. The phrase was made popular by one of my fave shows, Parks and Rec, and it’s a day/night around Valentine’s Day where you get together with your best girlfriends to spend some quality girl time. Whether you have a Valentine or not, it’s a necessity to get in some gal-pal time! One of my closest friends and fellow fashion blogger, Danielle from the blog Shikshin, and I hosted a Galentine’s Day dinner at a local sushi restaurant with some of our girlfriends. We had a ton of fun, filled with sushi, cocktails, cupcakes and some amazing lip products from Makeup Academy! CVS Beauty Club provided all of our guests with 3 different products, and we had so much fun playing with them! Do you do a “Galentine’s Day” with your girlfriends? What does yours involve? Brunch, shopping, cocktails, spa? Share below!

A perk to being a blogger is that I often get to work with different brands, as well as amazing platforms that connect bloggers to brands, such as Brandbacker. I am a part of a current Brandbacker campaign which involves reviewing Paula Dorf’s 2 + 1 For Brows product. I previously used to work in Product Development and Marketing for color cosmetics, so cosmetics are near and dear to my heart. I love trying out new items and innovations. On top of that, until I started working in cosmetics, I didn’t realize how important filling in and defining eyebrows were. It really completes your look and frames your face! Here is Paula Dorf’s 2+1 For Brows product, with a little snapshot product description. “Create perfect looking brows that last all day! 2 flattering colors + 1 light wax = natural-looking brows. This trio creates a perfect color match and fills…
