SPOTTED: Korres, Clinique, NARS, and PUR Minerals at Marshalls

by -

Guys, seriously don’t sleep on stores like T.J. Maxx and Marshalls for cheap beauty products! Lately their online and brick and mortar stores have been featuring high-end beauty finds. I found a ton at Marshalls.Be sure to check that the packaging isn’t open though. People can ruin wonderful things like this.  !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1479599832089?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if…

Fall Mindfulness: A Candle for Your Thoughts?

by -

Apparently, candles evoke the ability to inspire and feed our creativity. This is actually very true for me! I work from home, so sometimes it’s hard for me to break out of staying in bed and really get into my work mode, where I get SHIT DONE, and then some.I have to say, there’s something about sitting by a candle, typing, that gives me total ‘writer’ vibes. It makes me think, this is actually my job? I’m very lucky.The fall is my favorite time of the year! And the most basic thing about me is…

Summer Jeans

by -

So…about this weather. I honestly feel like I was born on the wrong part of the globe, for me. I’ve never been capable of tolerating hot weather. Anything over 80 degrees turns my stomach and immediately makes cranky. I’m serious! I loose my appetite, and I get snippy and more impatient than ever. Is it just me?Perhaps, but it doesn’t change the fact that I still have to go out almost daily in this East Coast humidity. I’m also…retaining a bit of holiday weight….since early 2015. So none of my shorts really…

Your Perfect Summer Base

by -

Oily skin girls…I feel your pain in the summer season. The second the sun hits my face I immediately feel my makeup being to melt off. I don’t have skin problems, just your average zit and some scarring here and there. I don’t feel the need to have them fully covered though. I like a full coverage foundation, but I also like my skin to look like skin at the end of my beauty routine.I have oily-combo skin that has no problem leaning more toward the oilier side in the heat. I like to start…
