My Makeup Storage

One thing I’ve always “collected” was makeup. When I was younger, I remember going to my friend’s house and swapping lipstick samples that she somehow got from Avon.

Matching Lips & Nails

I’ve been known in the past to be a bit matchy-matchy. I was the girl who in middle school had a headband in each and every color, and it always matched my outfit. In high school, my earring collection surpassed that of the local Claire’s — I had a pair in every shade or color…

Once winter rolls around, it’s inevitable that it will happen to you at least once or twice. Between the cool wind outside and the harsh and dry heat indoors, this season is bad news…

Copycat: Lana Del Rey

Copycat: Lana Del Rey

  If I could trade faces with anyone, Lana Del Rey would probably be at the top of my list. The sultry singer is known for her infamous lips almost as much for her lackluster SNL performance (although I thought it was pretty good, but whatever). Del Rey burst onto the scene with her first…
