Full House

I’m moving into a new place very soon and, surprise surprise, I’m being a little indecisive about what I want the final product to look like. My main concern is decorating my bedroom, but there still aren’t enough Pinterest home decor boards in the world to help me hone my vision. One thing I do […]

PSA: Jules Smith Americana Choker

Consider this your public shopping announcement – we thought why share these deals with each other and not let you guys in on the fun? In the first of hopefully many we present to you: this gem of a choker necklace. We’ve had our eyes on them and admired many but we were waiting for the price […]

Make It Count

About two months ago I was perusing Instagram and came across an invitation for a conversation being hosted by some consultants of BEAUTYCOUNTER at a store in NYC. I recalled seeing the name as well as gold embossed bottles numbered 1, 2, and 3 popping up around the green beauty blog circuit and visited the website.

Spring Cleaning

It is something I often lose sight of when I’m stressing out over trivial things like beach cover-ups or what methods I need to make my skin have a flawless glow. In the past, I’ve read about […]

Carpe Dosha

“This is great for my Dosha!” I proclaimed as my friends muddled blueberries into the potion they were making for me on a recent Friday night. It was a phrase I continued to abuse throughout my entire weekend visit to DC. After a series of side stares and eye rolls my friends decided to finally […]
