Madewell x Spotify x Kelela

This past Wednesday I had the pleasure of being invited to the Madewell x Spotify in-store event ft. a performance by Kelela. The clothes were beautiful, the food was great, and the drink options were really tasty, but what really set the night for me was Kelela's impeccable performance. My only call-out would be that it was too short, but that's only because her incredible voice and presence left me longing for so much more. Thankfully, she's on Spotify, so I now have her music on repeat. How I had never heard of her befo[...]

Posted In: beautifulifehacks | Beauty
I'm realizing one video per week with a full time job is an incredibly ambitious goal, but I'm determined to keep this consistency up (at least 3 videos per month). In today's #BEAUTIFULIFEHACKS video, I share my daily makeup routine. 2 things to note: I'm sick and losing my voice so I sound like a cross between a frog and a man-witch, and I look 12 years old without any makeup on. Lol. Anyway, I hope you enjoy, this is great for anyone with thin eyebrows like myself, who want to go for a more natural look! Shop all the[...]

Turn good jeans into great jeans with this cheap and easy fix. If you have a petite frame like me, a good pair of jeans may fit right as far as how tight they are, but what keeps them being a great pair of jeans, is the bunching at the ankles because they're too long. In this video I share the world of difference it makes when you get them tailored just for you.

Ain’t No Half Steppin.

I've always been into shoes, but my loved ones have definitely noticed a growing "shoe thing" with me lately, mostly consisting of strappy heels, stilettos, and pumps because I'm trying to refine my wardrobe and dress my age, as you may have read in my Young Lady post. Β But from time to time, sometimes all you want to do is slip on a great pair of sneakers to give your poor feet a break, but when you do it, you don't want to compromise style or aesthetic (at least I don't).Β I dropped the self-proclaimed sneakerhead thing[...]

I'm not a huge makeup person at all, but I do know that a there are simple tricks that are quick and easy for putting your best face forward. In my opinion, 2 products that you can apply to instantly give your face some life and color without making it seem like you're trying: a great bronzer and a great lip gloss. I can guarantee you that even if you had both of these on and nothing else, you would look like you actually took some time to get ready. A great lip gloss adds volume and dimension to your lips, because the[...]

Pendleton recently sent me this amazing blanket, and I've now decided that it's going to come with me on all major roadtrips and outdoor adventures. Pendleton is universally known for the quality of their woolen mills, but when you touch the fabric you can actually feel the difference. It becomes clear that it's designed to withstand the elements, and it'll tough any experience out right along with you - whether it be a camping trip, a music festival, a day at the beach, or an easy trip to the park. The fact that they design[...]
