Eyeshadow Palette Swatch Round-Up: July 2018

  I posted this on my instagram account a few days ago, but I thought it would also be useful to make an actual blog post for posterity. Earlier this week I went to Sephora because that’s what I do when I’m bored, and I took the opportunity to swatch some of the eyeshadow palettes I hadn’t tried yet. Everyone loves swatches, so here they are! I’ve added some thoughts too, but please note I didn’t actually wear any of these, so definitely don’t count  ...

How To Choose The Perfect Commuter Bike

It’s officially summer now! Among other things, that means activity has picked up a lot in my online and local cycling groups. Aside from that, my job just started offering a commute club (aka, perks if you agree not to bring a car to work). Then Lexington finally got a bike share! So what I’m saying is, bike-riding is on my brain. I’m a very firm believer in the power of bike transportation to make your life way better. I know I had tons of questions when I first started  ...
