When I was a senior in high school I stumbled onto the app Stylebook in the App Store. For $3.99 it claimed to be a virtual closet for your real-life wardrobe. When I first downloaded it my closet was clunky, unorganized, and had too many trendy pieces. Even if I had adopted the Stylebook App I doubt that I really would've made progress in terms of organizing my closet and calculating cost per wear.

Hi friends! Another month another Sephora Play box! To be honest I didn't have any idea what was going to be in this Sephora Play box until I received it. This past month's theme was called, "Festival of Beauty" it catered towards the festival season spirit but giving the options of staying in and glamping as well! I am most definitely staying in unless I randomly win a giveaway. I was surprised that there wasn't anything from the Too Faced Life's a Festival collection since it was so relevant and new but that's Sephora Play for ya.

A few weeks ago we shot the spring look book for Do Good Co. The weather was no where close to being reminiscent of spring AT ALL, but still I loved how these photos turned out. Do Good's new spring/summer pieces are great- go check them out in store! Photos by Ali Happer.

Books have always been my first love. Ever since I was a child reading has been my favorite past time. The public library has been my favorite place and not much has changed since then. Nancy Drew is still my #1, the Great Gatsby makes my heart ache, and I'm always going to have a soft spot for Holden Caulfield no matter where I'm at in life. I don't spend as much time getting lost in books as I'd like, but I am always reading.

Hi friends! I'm back! I've been so busy with school and life lately I haven't actually sat down to write a blog post from start to finish, but here I am reviewing last month's Sephora Play box. I actually didn't end up writing one on January's box because Sephora Play has been getting on my nerves. I've been getting a lot of duplicate products these past few months and last month I did get one winner the Ole Henriksen Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask, but aside from that I wasn't terribly fond of it. So in case you were wondering I wasn't a huge fan of January's box. I was weary when February's box came but I was excited to try 4 new products especially with Peter Thomas Roth and Nars to try.

Before we began possibly the most ambivalent winter on record here in Kansas I started to think about what I wanted to add to my winter wardrobe that would make dressing for colder days more exciting. Truth be told my winter wardrobe is my favorite. I love long coats, gloves, sweaters, layers, wearing boots everyday, and especially turtlenecks.

To be honest I never thought I'd be into the corset trend unless of course the costumes from Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette were up for trying on.

When I turned 18 the first thing I did after school was buy a $2 scratcher (which I won $10 from!) and some anti-ager. Since then anti-ager has been an important part of my beauty routine. I'm not scared of aging, but I want to age gracefully like J-Lo. Although I have used many of bareMinerals products, I haven't tried any of their anti-aging products. I was so excited when they reached out to let me try products from their new line.

My 5th wrap dress yet, and yes I know this obsession is becoming a problem. However, I've said before that wrap dresses are life changing! They're a symbol of empowerment, feminism, innovation, and a testament to the great works DVF has achieved over the course of her career.

Ok this post title is a little deceiving as it has nothing to do with drinking, but more about drinking in skincare. For the past month or so I've been getting drunk in love on Drunk Elephant's products. Drunk Elephant is a skincare line created by Tiffany Masterson. Its rooted in simple skin care with clean, additive-free ingredients that work hard. Many of its products are infused with fruit of the marula tree which notoriously gets elephants drunk. I was so excited to receive these products to try from Drunk Elephant and am so grateful. Now let's talk about my month getting drunk!

This year one of my resolutions was to be more conscious with my purchases in regards to sustainability. So when Love, Beauty, and Planet reached out to me to try their new products I was excited. Love, Beauty, and Planet is an eco-friendly game changer to the drug-store shampoo and conditioner aisle. Every bottle is made from 100% recycled materials (caps and pumps are getting there) and is recyclable. The ingredient list for these products are quite long, but the products have no silicons, parabens, and are vegan. I've really been trying to buy more beauty products that emphasize going green this year and these beauties are a great push in that direction. Today I'm sharing my review on this line and sharing some tips on how to go green with your own beauty products.

Since I was 15 I've been obsessed with eyeshadows. If I was stranded on a deserted island I would probably bring all my eye shadows and they'd just turn into Wilson from Cast Away. Buxom Cosmetics reached out to me to try some of their products and when I received them I nearly cried.

Hi friends! Halfway through January and 2018 is already moving way too quickly! I've been getting back into the school groove, re-watching way too much Gilmore Girls, working part-time, trying to get back into my daily walks, and working on the blog. Before January slips away I wanted to share some of my current beauty favorites!

Converse and I go way back. To the days where I was kicking a tetherball on the black top and watching the Ramones' music videos on Yahoo Video. So when Collectively and Converse reached out to be apart of the #foreverchuck program I was excited!

 I think 2017 for me could be declared as the year of highlighters (in addition to other things like the world exploding from being so polarized), moving on! I've tried so many highlighters this year and to be honest there wasn't one that I really disliked. So when Influenster let me try Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter I was all game. Bring on the highlighters!

Hi friends! Happy 2018! New year, new goals, and chatting about the past year. 2017 was one hell of a year. I graduated college, moved back to suburbia, JMC turned 5!, completed a 5 month internship, started pursuing my MBA, went on a road trip to Texas, saw John Mayer, and read 25 books!
