Pantone Fall 2017 Nail Polish

Colors come and go. They are in one season and out the next. That’s why we look to The Pantone Color Institute for inspiration. They recently unveiled their #trending colors for this season and we created our own Pantone fall 2017 nail polish color guide to help you choose. The color story for this season was influenced by the top 10 hues most used at New York Fashion Week. The 2017 colors take their inspiration from the overall themes of the fall season; warmth, comfort, and simplicity.

maple holistics

  Maple Holistics saved my hair! Finding the perfect shampoo and conditioner that gives my hair the moisture it lacks is difficult. If you’re like me, dry hair is a problem.

Before I get started on how amazing the products are, let me provide you some info on the brand. What is Maple Holistics? Maple Holistics is a brand based in Farmingdale,Read More →

I find it important to go off track every once in a while and switch it up a bit. My boyfriend and I try to, at least once a week have one of those amazing LA summer nights. It doesn’t have to be much, or cost a lot of money, in fact some of my favoritesRead More →

Summer Mornings

There truly is no place like Southern California in the summer time. The weather isn’t too different from the rest of the year but the feeling of summer brings upon a whole new attitude. Which comes with new routines for getting yourself set for the day ahead. Unfortunately for some, summer doesn’t always mean a break from getting up early and working. With work and other obligations I still find myself hitting snooze on my alarm rather than taking an extra hour or two to sleep in.

pool proof makeup products

During the hot months I like to keep my makeup routine as simple as possible. There’s nothing worse than walking around or laying out in the extreme heat to feel that my skin can’t breath or to look in the mirror and see that my makeup is smudged and that it no longer looks like how it did when I left my apartment 20 minutes ago.

The difference betweenRead More →
