A Colour Pop Lipstick Review

  Hi guys! I have recently (7/19/16) updated swatches of all of the Colour Pop lipsticks I own–including lippie sticks, ultra-mattes and satin lipsticks. All of the swatches are done without lip liners and in indoor lighting. I purchase new shades all the time so be sure to scroll through all the colors for updates and…

All About The Glow

A highlighter by any other name (than Becca) would glow as bright, right? Eh, wrong. Lately I have been all about that glow life. But achieving the perfect highlighted look is more than slapping some highlighter on and calling it a day. Recently I have been adding a few tricks during my makeup application that I feel have…

One N’ Only Color Fix Review + Hair Journey Update

For many years now I’ve wanted blue hair. My desire has evolved from bright shocking electric blue, to a more sophisticated blue-black, and all blues in between. And for someone with naturally dark hair doing any color change can be daunting. More so for me, since my hair has been colored many times and is already…

Best YouTube Beauty Gurus!

YouTube is one of, if not the biggest video social media platforms and many popular YouTube personalities have been elevated to overnight celebrities. With the beauty industry being so vast and constantly evolving, those with the savvy to keep up with the trends become forevermore known as beauty gurus. As explained by the link, a beauty…

Top 15 of 2015

It’s favorites season on YouTube for many beauty vloggers and “gurus.” I was feeling inspired by NikkieTutorials, Jackie Aina and Amanda Ensing, some of the ladies I subscribe to, to think up my own favorites list for last year. Including but not limited to beauty products and in no particular order here’s what I couldn’t put…

#wastehistime2016

I was minding my own business a few days ago when a friend let me know about the first hilarious trending topic of the new year, as you can probably guess by the title above, hashtag “Waste His Time 2016.”         Spoiler alert, some people were very butt-hurt. First, I want to start with why…

MAC Liquid Lipsticks!

MAC recently (finally) launched their Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour line, about two weeks ago. As soon as I heard I knew I had to jump on ordering! With MAC it seems like they launch their products in a whisper and the word of mouth suddenly takes over and before you know it, the product is…

Farewell Fall Salad

Looking for vegan options? Love squash/pomegranate/salads but not sure how you can mix it up? Good news; here’s another rice salad we can all enjoy. The colors were so warm and autumn-esque that I’ve named it Farewell Fall. Plus it just so happens to be the last day of fall! You can find all these…

Wild Rice and Kale Salad

  I don’t eat in extremes. I eat a moderate amount daily and drink plenty of water but as a broke college student there are days when I only eat popcorn, top ramen and oreo cookies. Even so, I am trying to change that. I was inspired by a recipe I saw made by Ina…

Roots Hair Treatment Review

In California over the past couple days we’ve had (a little bit of) rain and for me rainy weather is the perfect time for me to wear my hair curly. It takes a lot of the stress off of making sure that I leave the house equipped to not melt in the rain. Since today…

Garlic Pull-Apart Bread

Recently I saw one of the Tasty Kitchen tutorials on Facebook on how to make Garlic Pull-Apart bread and I was feeling inspired (and gluttonous) so I decided to make one for Thanksgiving. Surprisingly, it was a huge hit! And I’ve been contracted to make one for every subsequent family gathering. It’s fairly simple and…

Fall LOTD!

  Hey guys, sorry I haven’t been posting so frequently. I’ve been so busy with school and work! I thought I’d break the ice by doing two fall fashion looks-of-the-day. I chose one sweater dress and one shorts outfit that could also be worn as a pants look. These looks are adaptable to what most women…

…why?

As I was driving to school this morning, repeatedly slamming on the brake and wondering if the car in front of me understood the functionality of a green light, the only thing going through my head was, “Why?” So I got to thinking about all the other things that I encounter during the day that…
