Real Talk: Body Confidence

“Comparison is the thief of joy” – Theodore Roosevelt When I first started this blog, I planned on it being just as much of a fashion and beauty blog as a personal one. I planned on tackling personal topics, and connecting with my readers on a level a bit deeper than just agreeing on the same foundation formulation. Looking back at my archives, I was disappointed to realize that I haven’t tackled too many personal issues on my blog up to this point. Last fall I did talk a bit about the funk I was in…

Denim on Denim

I have a habit of wearing things immediately after buying them, and for multiple days in a row. (Confession: I’ve even changed into new outfits I’ve just purchased in the mall bathroom because I’m too excited to wait until I get home) This drapey chambray top from Target definitely falls into the shamelessly-wear-multiple-times category.

(While I’m at it, I…

My Most Used Makeup Brushes

Some people swear by using their fingers, or the little applicators that come with certain products, and I used to be totally guilty of that, but I’ve since become a huge fan of brushes and sponges to apply my makeup. I’ll never forget when a makeup artist at the MAC counter in Nordstrom explained to a younger, less makeup educated Molly that makeup is an art. She likened applying makeup to the skin…

Five Face Products I’m Loving Right Now

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation: Hands down my favorite foundation. Ever. I recently rediscovered it (thank you, Sephora VIB sale) and it seriously applies like a dream and lasts all day long. Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer: This has completely replaced the Nars Radiant Creamy Comcealer I had been using. I didn’t think anything was wrong with the Nars kind, until I tried this stuff. No comparison! It doesn’t crease, flake, or budge. Smashbox Photofinish Oil Free Pore Minimizing Primer: I’ve always been a bit skeptical of primers, like is this just a ploy…
