Beauty Review Friday

Happy Friday!! I’ve recently tried out some new beauty products that I wanted to share with you! I’ve tested out a mud mask, eye gel, mascara, and lip gloss and have recorded my thoughts in the videos below!


Pure & Essentials Minerals Mud Mask and OZ Naturals Super Youth Eye Gel were provided to me by BrandBacker. YSL False Lash Effect Mascara was provided by Influenster and I purchased the YSL Tint-In-Oil Lip Gloss on my own. I chose to review the products and all opinions are completely my own!

What’s in my purse?

I think most women would say that they carry their lives around in their purses! Even magazines like Us Weekly have regular columns asking celebrities to dump our their purses for all readers to see. So, what’s in my purse? Here’s a sneak peek into my Longchamp Le Pliage bag…

These are things that I typically carry around on a day-to-day basis, although I most definitely pare down the items (and switch to a smaller bag or clutch!) for a night out to dinner. If you want to shop any of my on-the-go items from the pink Herve Chapelier cosmetics bag, I’ve listed a few below:

Spring Cleaning!


Spring is on its way! The crazy huge icicles on my roof have started to melt (and fall off in monster sized chunks!) and I just know that spring is around the corner. And with that, its also the perfect time to start taking inventory of my spring/summer items and cleaning out what I no longer want or need. I have my spring consignment appointment next weekend, so I have been busy cleaning out my own closet this week. Here are a few spring cleaning tips:

1) Winter Clothes: Think about next year while putting away your winter clothes.  Are there items you haven’t worn all season? What can you toss vs. what can you potentially donate or sell? Consignment stores won’t take fall/winter items now, but they will start taking them in August and September. I like to wash and package together any items that I know I will want to sell so that they are ready to go once it hits the pre-fall season.

2) Spring/Summer Clothes: What spring or summer items do you have from last year that you no longer want or need? Are there items that no longer fit? If they are in good condition you can try to sell them at a local consignment shop or donate them to a women’s shelter.

3) Inventory: Take an inventory of what you do have after you do your cleaning and donating/consigning. Are you missing anything essential? Last summer I realized I had sold all of my shorts (I’m not a huge fan) and had to search around for a pair or two that I really liked. My favorites come from J.Crew and I usually buy a size up and with a 5″ inseam so that they aren’t super short!

Now that I’ve done a little spring cleaning, I have a few holes in my closet! Here are some of the new items I’m thinking of adding to my spring wardrobe:
