Ah red nail polish. A love of mine that can never be tarnished. Like coffee and Vogue. Bright red, orangey-red, brick red, you name it I have a shade of it. What's funny is that O.P.I is known for their red nail polishes, yet I didn't choose one that is "iconic" like Big Apple Red or I'm Not Really A Waitress. Probably because those are such staple O.P.I colors and I do respect them, but there are a few other red nail polishes I have lost sleep wondering whether a salon had them.

When I was in undergrad my friends would tell me that all the clothes I bought looked the same. It was always something I thought was funny because in a way its sort of true. I tend to gravitate towards silhouettes and styles that I'm familiar with and that I know will suit my petite frame. I'd rather buy iterations of things that I would actually like then invest in trendy pieces that aren't durable.

Here's a fun fact about me, I've always wanted to visit Alaska! Ever since I read Into the Wild it has always been a dream of mine to see Alaska. Sometime ago my mom asked me if I was interested in going on an Alaskan cruise with my extended family. To be completely honest at first I said no because of my summer classes. My summer classes ran all the way through the week of our cruise and I had no idea whether I would finish all my coursework. However, with a lot of planning I managed to get it all done. As promised here is my photo diary!

Greetings and salutations, friends! Seasons 52 invited me back to try their new Rosé All Day, All Summer menu. Things are never boring at Seasons 52 because they revamp their menu every season!

Hi friends! With the Kansas City heat being a million degrees my ideal makeup routine is just sunscreen and moisturizer. Honestly Coola's Mineral Sun Silk Organic Sunscreen is everything I swear. Nevertheless, in true Chanel fashion my beauty routine is followed by a few other products and then I somehow have a full face on. How did that happen? Here's a few beauty products I'm excited about right now!

I feel like I'm filling a life long dream to try all the Pixi Beauty products! As I've said in a previous Pixi review I've eyed Pixi's products for many years. The mint green and pink packaging is iconic!
