I have officially found my favorite face masks, and they are the Sephora Sheet Masks. I am so incredibly behind on the obsession, but my love for these are real.
I was actually very nervous to try these the first time around because I am always fearful that new products will break me out. My skin is on the sensitive side at times, and I didn’t feel like having to deal with the consequences if things didn’t go as planned. However, I took the plunge and boy, was I glad I did.
The first mask I tried was the pearl eye mask. I had been running off of a busy twelve hour day with makeup that was slowly melting off of my face. I hopped in the shower, cleansed, toned, and placed these babies underneath my eyes and was ready for the magic to happen. I left them on for the required amount of time, and when I went to remove them, my under eyes felt so hydrated and refreshed. I patted in the rest of the liquid heaven under my eyes and went to sleep to wake up to diminished dryness and puffiness.
I decided to try the orchid face mask a few days later and was equally pleased. Even though I looked like a character out of the film Halloween, I was in love with the outcome. The next day my skin was no longer dry or peeling, and it felt softer than before.
These masks range from $5-$6 and are an affordable way to enjoy the luxury of a sheet mask.

Definitely try these masks out! They can be found at all Sephora retailers in store and online. They are the perfect gift and stocking stuffer for this holiday!

It’s that time of year again! I officially broke out of my comfort zone and did something so crazy! I decided I wanted to tackle ventriloquist makeup, which was actually more challenging than I thought! But I conquered all those challenges to bring you a simplified tutorial, so you can recreate it!
At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about how it turned out, but after I liked the creepy and “messy” animation of it.
I think this is the cutest Halloween look, and wish I thought of being this for Halloween this year! Below I added a few touches that would look perfect with this makeup look and make you look like the ultimate ventriloquist puppet.

Fall is here, and Halloween is around the corner! Regardless, it is the season of warm pumpkin scents, candles, candy corn, and cozy blankets. It can be hard decorating practically, especially on a budget. The key is to pick items that are reusable every year, interchangeable, and can be used all year round! Below is my latest video one how I decorated my apartment for the season, along with a few inspiration pictures from my Pinterest board !
Most of my vases and bedroom decor is maintained throughout the whole year, along with candles, but I tend to remove the pumpkin decorations and keep them for the next year! My decor is from Homegoods, Marshalls, TJ Max, Michael’s, and Target.
These are my inspirations for my future home! I love how non-traditional the pieces are, using white pumpkins instead of orange, giving a rustic vibe to your home. Candles are an essential with the colder months on their way. If you have a porch or front deck, I recommend having fun and adding barrels of hay, pumpkins, and fall wreaths to the mix.
That is my dream!

It is been a hot minute since I have filmed a video. Getting settled into school has been hard, but I am finally back and will be filming as regularly as possible!
Since fall is officially here, meaning the weather is matching the season, we can finally wear our fave fall makeup looks.
This everyday makeup tutorial is the perfect and simple look to sport for class, a meeting, errands, lunch, dinner, or even a nice event or formal. Maybe even homecoming?!
Below are some of my fave shades that you can use to recreate this look or other fall makeup looks.
The palette I used in this tutorial is the Anastasia of Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. (Sold at Sephora and Ulta)
With New York Fashion Week here, beauty trends are on the rise with each designer that shows on the runway! Below are a few of my favorites thus far.

Smokey eyes and lots of dewy highlight seems to be the main focus for this season’s S/S 2017 runway!
For more New York Fashion Week updates, stay tuned!
Marble seems to be everywhere lately. It is no longer what you see in your parent’s bathroom or the counter of an upscale kitchen. The marble aesthetic is a huge trend for accessories, home decor, and even clothing!
Most of these items can be found in stores, such as Marshalls, Homegoods, Target, Urban Outfitters, Amazon and more! Classic pieces like these can spruce up any bedroom, dorm, outfit, even computer!
My notebook above is from Homegoods, my computer case is from Amazon, and phone case is from Amazon.
Back to school is here! And although I am bittersweet and anxious about the new academic year to start, it is time to face reality and plan this year’s series of fashionable weeks!
Since fall doesn’t officially arrive until the end of September, we will still be forced to wear cooler clothes for the classroom heat. But that’s not a problem! We can still look back to school ready, while keeping up with the summer weather.
For the first day and first few weeks, a simple striped tee and shorts are a must. You can spruce it up with your favorite adidas, converse, hair and new backpack. My small black bag is perfect for any necessary school items. The long straps allow for shoulder comfort and the distressed material adds a vintage style! I got mine at Marshalls, but there are similar ones here and here.
Whatever your back to school look may be, have an excellent beginning of the year!
