Sephora Haul: VIB Sale November 2017

Oops, I did it again! I shopped the second of the bi-annual Sephora sales, and did so much damage my Rogue status is extended through spring of 2018 *monkey covering eyes emoji* I tried to pick up a lot of basics, and things that I needed to replenish, such as foundation, concealer, and lipsticks. I did however, want to try some different brands within those product categories. Sorry Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation, while you’ll always be my ride or die, I felt I needed to give something else a shot! The November VIB sale is…

2 Target Accessory Finds for the Holidays

I love finding a good statement accessory, and if it’s at an amazing price point it’s an even sweeter victory! And when I say I love finding a good statement accessory, I mean upon finding one I will immediately call my mom and or sister and let them know about it! Case in point? A recent trip to Target that resulted in my being the proud new owner of the sweetest A New Day Mary-Jane style heels, and some super fierce Sugarfix dangly earrings (similar set HERE). I’ve already called my mom about…

Boudoir, Body Confidence and Homebody Photo

The relationship I have with myself has always been a complicated one. I’m an over thinker, a people pleaser, a plan ahead-er, and I hold myself to standards that are usually unattainable. You can imagine the impact these self-proclaimed traits have had on my physical self-perception.

That being said, you can imagine that that a boudoir shoot with Homebody was a very, very, scary thought, initially. However, the…

Apple Watch Series 2 Review

Most of the time I’m fashionably late regarding technology trends. It took every fiber of my stubborn being to make the change from a Motrola Razor flip phone (do you remember those!?) to a more era appropriate iPhone. Likewise, I wasn’t convinced I needed a “smart” watch until I noticed everyone and their mother, brother, sister and cousin sporting one! I had to have one. I was planning on asking  for one for Christmas, but Christmas came on August 12th when my sweet husband (so fun to say!) surprised me with one as a…

Big Magic: My 5 Takeaways

A dear friend, and my former English professor in college, suggested I read Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert years ago. He and I are very alike as far as personalities and interests are concerned; we’re both a bit anxious, we both appreciate good theatre and deep conversations, and we’re both arguably certifiably insane if we aren’t being at least a bit creative (perhaps we’re both certifiably insane even if we are creating, but that’s besides the point haha) That’s why he wanted me to read this book in…
