I may only own two colors, but I'm calling it. This is one of my favorite OPI collections ever. These colors are gorgeous, and I may be alone here, but this is an exciting variety of shades. They fit together and seem to be more on theme with New Orleans than that OPI Hawaii collection … Continue reading OPI New Orleans Collection
One of the amazing parts about living in a progressive, cool city like Austin is that we have a ton of different food options. For instance, the other night, I checked out a place called Sweet Ritual. It is a vegan ice cream shop tucked into a healthy juice bar. This place has experienced such … Continue reading Sweet Ritual Vegan Ice Cream
Hey everyone! I have attempted the impossible. I have tried to get an accurate nail swatch of OPI's polish color Malaga Wine. This color went on beautiful, but no matter what lighting or angle I used, I couldn't get this GORGEOUS color to look as amazing as it does in person. Here's my review on … Continue reading OPI Malaga Wine
Every March, my adopted home town is host to a huge music and tech festival. And sometimes, during this crazy week, President Obama comes to our capital city as well. A lot of Austin-ites seem torn on SXSW (South By Southwest)- some rent out their homes for the week and flee, others stay home with … Continue reading SXSW Free Show
Hey everyone! The other day I posted about the OPI nail polish haul at Sally's, and over the weekend I had a little fun and bought some nail polishes. It's haul time! I got 7 new polish bottles in total, plus 3 bottles of Seche Vite quick dry topcoat (bought on Amazon Smile for just … Continue reading NAIL POLISH HAUL!!
I had such a great day today! I woke up feeling happy and well rested, which is always awesome. Since Scott is rarely around in the morning and our favorite place offers breakfast tacos all day on weekends, we headed to Taco Deli, which I've gone on record in saying is my happy place. Taco Deli … Continue reading Changing Taste Buds!
As the trees are getting their green buds and the flowers are starting to bloom, I am getting ready for warmer days and longer nights as well. Spring is here, and my various social media feeds have been flooded with beautiful pastel makeup looks and gorgeous light neutral manicures. To add to the spring color … Continue reading Spring Nail Polish!
Hey everyone! One of my favorite dishes to cook is a version of pad thai. Since I don't use fish sauce or tamarind, and have modified this dish to be vegan, it's not really the authentic Thai version of Pad Thai- just a disclaimer. It is, however, an absolutely delicious peanut-y, creamy yet light, healthy … Continue reading Recipe: Vegan “Pad Thai”
So according to my email, Sally Beauty Supply is having a buy 2 get 1 free sale on OPI nail polishes. OPI is my favorite brand of nail polish for a few reasons, so I'm really excited about this sale. My local grocery store is also having a $1 off OPI sale, which brings their … Continue reading OPI Nail Polish Sale
Hey! It's almost spring. Which to me means running season. I am the most unprepared runner I know. I have one pair of shorts that I love (and two that will work but kind of suck), one sports bra that Under Armour discontinued making, and I recently lost my armband so I have to use … Continue reading Running Music
Hey everyone! Recently, my makeup addiction has veered back to basics. I have been super interested in skin care- learning about it, implementing new products, and trying to take amazing care of my largest organ.

Hello everyone! Here are some of my favorites of this past year in media and goodies I've enjoyed. Favorite Beauty Discovery: GlamGlow masks (I love the black jar) and CeraVe dry skin cream in the tub. The CeraVe cream especially has been my absolute favorite new product, and has given me results that all of … Continue reading Favorites of 2015 Round-Up
