I love finding sweet dresses. And I especially love it if I find that they are reversible! When I spotted this Kora Rae dress online, I just knew I had to have it! When a single dress can take the guess work out of the ‘what should I wear?’ scenario for two separate occasions, well then, I’m #winning. Read more
You know how you’ve been meaning to do something and years pass and you never get to it? Well, that was me with visiting Providence, Rhode Island. When our friends mentioned they were traveling there for the weekend, well, we just had to go- the time had come! So we packed our things and headed up northeast. Three and a half hours later, we found ourselves in Providence. Read more
After spending the morning cooped up in the house due to rainy weather, my husband and I decided to head out to Oyster Bay, Long Island for the afternoon. The sun started to peak out of the sky and, well, why not take the chance :). I quickly tossed on some easy pieces and off we went! Read more
I’m always up for having some fun in the sun and when I find myself hungry in NYC that means eating al-fresco! Read more
Summer and its heat has finally arrived and it’s that time of the year again when my makeup goes to minimal (no one likes a raccoon at the beach or a clown strawberry-picking, am I right?)
I’ll do a post on my favorite can’t-be-without drugstore brands soon on the blog, but for today, I wanted to share a post on my picks for a simplified go-to
summer all year-round look using a higher-end makeup brand: Chanel.
Now, I’ve always thought of Chanel as just a sophisticated brand with great luxurious marketing, a hefty price tag, and it being a not-really-for-me-but-older-customer brand. However, since taking a leap of curiosity and trying out their products within the past year, I can honestly say that they really do give you a sophisticated look and help enhance your features – at any age.
While they are on the higher-priced side of the makeup scale, I have come to find that their quality is great and the longevity of the product is just as amazing. Now, I’m no professional in the makeup-application department (#truth), so I rarely use much of it and I’m convinced that I don’t apply it as I should, but I think the richness of the colors gets me by and the end result is a truly clean, sophisticated look. #winning
All of the products I mention in this post have lasted me about a year now! Except for the eyeliner. The eyeliner went fast (but that’s because it’s just so creamy & bold to not want to use every day!).
Okay, so off we go to the reviews! Read more
