NUDE Eye Complex Review

NUDE eye renewal complex
At 21, the dreaded wrinkles are finding its way into my life one way or another! I have the terrible, terrible habit of rubbing my eyes. You know that feeling when you rub them once and then you can’t stop because it feels good in a way. Well, all the smiling,crinkling, and rubbing have taken a toll on the delicate skin around my eyes. Read More →

September is a few months away and with that being said so is the Back-to-School season.  Planning is essential to allow everything to move along smoothly.  I used to be those students who depended on their memory rather than jotting them down but as I went onto my sophomore and junior year of university, I realized I needed a bit of help.

June 2014 Julep Box

Julep Maven Welcome Box

 

**I am not getting paid or compensated for the following. This review is purely my opinion and I hope you enjoy!**

 

After hearing about and seeing all the ads for Julep, I decided to jump the gun and join to see how I would like this subscription service.  I adore makeup but I love nail polish even more so I figured this would be the best choice for me. Every month for $25/mo or $20/3 mo (pre-paid) you get 2-3 nail polishes and/or a beauty product depending on your style profile. Your style profile is determined by the survey you take upon signing up. The style profiles are: It Girl, Bombshell, Classic with a Twist, Boho Glam, and Modern Beauty.

Be My Valentine

valentines*Sponsored Post. Every month for a year I will be receiving Darby Smart kits to try and review. The reviews and opinions are all mine and are no way affected by being sponsored.

Returning from my too-short vacation in the sunny state of Florida, I arrived to find my Darby Smart already ripped open by my curious father.  I took a peek and immediately grew excited.  Inside was a can that said ‘Sprinkles’.  Now, if you don’t know Sprinkles, it’s a rather semi-famous bakery that started in California and soon spread it’s wings into New York City.  I’ve been wanting to go for as long as I could remember but could never make time with my busy school schedule and multitude of internships.

New Year, Better Skin

*This is not a sponsored post and I am in no way endorsing this product. This is my honest review and opinion.

While I started of 2014 hoping I would have a little bit more money in my pocket I decided to start the new year off with a big splurge.  I went ahead and got myself a Clarisonic Aria.  I was never one who was big into skincare as I would just throw some water on my face and head out but now I know I want to take care of my skin while it is still youthful and free of big worries such as wrinkles.

DIY Marquee Board

IMG_0861I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with all your family and friends!  I am a bit bummed that the holiday season is already over.  I absolutely love the feeling of it all.  I am aware of how much I have been slacking and the lack of fashion posts and I am hoping that 2014 can be the year of overhaul.  I need to learn how to use the darn tripod!

I had been given the opportunity to be a Darby Smart Editor*.  Every month for a year I will be receiving DIY projects which I will be documenting on my blog.  I absolutely love doing DIY and arts and crafts and this is a great box subscription that will let you try your hand in it.

For the month of December, it was a DIY Marquee Board which you can hang or place anywhere you like and it could even be used for the upcoming New Years!
