DIY Upcycled Makeup Storage

If you’ve seen my instagram any time in the past couple months then you already know I’m going full steam ahead with my home office decor. I’ve spent the last two years slowly collecting furniture I love, and it’s sooooo close to being complete.  That is not what this post is about. As part of the process, I’ve also been revamping my makeup storage. At our old house I tried the whole white IKEA desk & all acrylic storage thing, but eventually decided  ...

Review: Fenty Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette

Raise your hand if you’ve ever bought a beauty product just because of the packaging. Yeah, me too. The latest example: the Fenty Moroccan Spice eyeshadow palette. I’m an absolute sucker for pink and purple, so the case on this baby was irresistible from the first time I laid eyes on it.

Tattoo Aftercare: No Fancy Potions Required

  Did you guys check out my new artwork? I decided a while back to go for a (mostly) full sleeve on my left arm – with just enough blank space for makeup swatches – and last week I had the first session for it. All the line work is complete, and I’m SO EXCITED about it! Because peonies, amiright? When I posted a pic on instagram aftercare came up in the comments, and I thought to myself, that’s probably a good idea for a skincare post. I’ve been using the  ...

Ministry of Supply: The Ultimate Travel & Bike Commute Pants

  I’ve been writing a lot lately about bike commuting. Seriously, it has taken my quality of life up at least five notches. Sadly though, pretty much every pair of pants I own would beg to differ. I’m pretty hard on pants as it is – the inner thigh blowout struggle is real. Unfortunately all the movement involved in biking only speeds up the wearing-out process. End result: pants and shorts in my closet have a very short life expectancy. In my quest for clothes that  ...
