Summer Sephora Haul

I think I have finally gotten to that point in my life where birthdays start to suck.  And to be honest, I sorta stopped counting when I hit 29…and that was a few years ago. :) I feel like getting out of town or traveling over my birthday generally helps to soften the blow of getting one year older.  So earlier this month I flew down to Portland to spend…

Stationary Haul

I know that I don’t usually do haul posts like this, but I had to share with all of you the cute stationary items that I purchased from one of my all time favorite boutiques…Lucca.  This little boutique has been my go to place whenever I need to pick up a quick present for a friend or I want to find something cool for my place.  They honestly have the…

Maul Haul

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a haul of any sorts…so after recently throwing down some cash at the mall, I thought I would share with ya’ll my new goodies! Check em out!! I am so excited to sport some of my flowy bohemian tops and muscle tanks this summer…and I thought these super pretty lace bralettes from American Eagle would be perfect to wear underneath.  It’s hard to tell…

Jo Malone

To say that I am backlogged on my blog posts is putting it mildly.  I honestly have bags upon bags littered throughout my bedroom full of items that I have either purchased or been sent that I need to blog about.  So I am sorry if it seems like the next few blogs are all about products or makeup items.  I am just trying to get these bags of items…

Crystals Are a Girl’s Best Friend

Forget diamonds.  I love me some CRYSTALS! And not in that spiritual, new age-y kind of way…I am just really fascinated by their organic shape and design!! As you all know, I have become more and more obsessed with raw gems placed in very non-traditional settings.  (Check out my blog posts here and here.)  So it’s only natural that I would be drawn to various forms of quartz and crystal…

I’m Back + New Nail Polish Haul!

I’m Back!!! After months and months of not posting anything on this blog…I am officially back at it!!   Believe me, a day didn’t pass where I didn’t think of posting something.  But I had SO many decisions to make regarding this blog: 1. Like whether or not to turn this blog into a self hosted website. 2. Updating portions of the layout to be more user friendly. 3. And lastly,…

End Of Summer Candles

I had totally forgotten that I purchased these two candles from Bath and Body Works earlier this Summer!! Somehow they got misplaced and pushed to one of the far corners of my closet (this is becoming an increasing trend for items that I purchase). Luckily for me, I just used up my last “Summery” candle the other day and I wasn’t quite ready to bust into my “Spicy Fall” candles…

Medium Length Hair Styles

A couple of months back I decided to chop off my hair…twelve inches to be exact! Now I’ve kept my hair rather long the past few years…roughly a couple inches past my bust.  But I was starting to get headaches because of the sheer weight of my hair.  Luckily, I am in no way emotionally attached to my hair…so I have absolutely no qualms with rocking short or long hair. All that to…

New Lip Balms!

How adorable are these little fruit shaped lip glosses that I recently picked up?!   I had read an article a couple months back about how Urban Outfitters was planning on expanding their beauty department by offering popular Asian makeup and skincare products that aren’t available to the typical American consumer.  Now at the time I thought that the products would only be available at their flagship stores or via…
