A Week in My EC: Oh, Hello Stationery Co January Subscription

January 12, 2018

Oh, Hello Stationery Co January Subscription

Happy 2018! I’m starting off the year strong by actually using my planner every day to keep track of my work schedule, chores and fun events. At the end of last year I looked through my planner from college and loved seeing everything I was up to. I’m hoping my planner for 2018 will keep me organized in the present but will be a fun trip down nostalgia lane in the future.

For the first week in 2018 I used the Oh, Hello Stationery Co January subscription. I’ve used Oh, Hello Stationery Co subscription kits in the past and loved them, but they were too big. The sticker and promotion company recently added a mini kit option that only has three sheets. It’s great for white space planners like me or for people who like a more minimal look. The theme for the month were these flamingos in the snow. Not my favorite theme, but it sure was nice to see some color in these cold winter months!

My Achievable Goals for 2018

My Goals for 2018

This is a Rebel Post. Rebel Posts are off-topic posts about anything I feel like writing about. Please enjoy.

It’s almost 2018 which means it’s time for every writer’s year-end post complaining about how hard 2017 was or how they can’t wait to be out of this dumpster fire of a year. And while I can totally agree, one of my goals for 2017 was to remain more positive, and that’s how I’m going to look at 2018. I want this upcoming year to be filled with positivity, self-reflection and growth. My goals aren’t hard to achieve and aren’t some vague goal posts. Here are my goals for 2018!

Urban Decay Moondust Palette Look: Lightyear

October 30, 2017

Urban Decay Moondust Palette

One of my favorite palettes to come out as of late is the Urban Decay Moondust palette. It’s everything I love: Urban Decay, glitter and color. I’d been wanting to expand my Moondust collection, and this palette seemed like the best way to do it! I did this look a while ago, but I’m just getting to writing about it. This look was probably the easiest and fastest look to create yet it has a punch to it. Find out how I made this Urban Decay Moondust palette look down below!

Ciate Glitter Flip Review

I’m reviewing something super cool today. This lipstick has been all over the Internet lately and I totally bought into the hype. The Ciate Glitter Flip lipstick is a matte liquid lipstick that transforms into a metallic, glittery lipstick by pressing your lips together. It’s innovative, something we’ve never seen before and totally cool! Check out my Ciate Glitter Flip review down below!

Lush Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask

Today I’m doing my first Lush review! How nuts is that? I’ve had this blog for two years (I know!!!) and I still haven’t reviewed any Lush products.

Find out what I think of the Lush Bunny Moon Jelly Face Mask down below!

Camp Gritty Dance Party Makeup Feat. Melt Cosmetics Blow

Camp Gritty Dance Party Makeup Feat. Melt Cosmetics Blow

Between August 13 – 17, I was at an incredibly wonderful space called Camp Gritty (blog post about Camp to come!) One of the nights was a giant dance party, and beforehand we got to get makeup-ready with total sweetheart and talented makeup artist Rosalina Young. You probably know her as ahitsrosa on Instagram and YouTube. She’s been on my favorite makeup artists and inspiration for years (you can see a look I did inspired by her here!), and being able to get ready with her was such a cool experience!

Sugarpill and Melt Cosmetics sponsored the party, and because of that we got to walk away with a pink eyeshadow and a lipstick! I chose Melt Cosmetics Blow as my lipstick and I based my makeup look around that lipstick. Learn how I achieved this look down below!

Bundle Monster Teenage Dream Candy Heart Nails

Bundle Monster Teenage Dream Candy Heart Nails

I’m back with nail art! It’s been quite a hot minute since I’ve posted nail art. I fell off the wagon for a while. I didn’t even paint my nails for a whole month. After 5+ years on constantly having my nails painted, I think I was burnt out. But after doing this nail art and trying some others, I think I may be back in the swing of things. Let’s hope this streak lasts!

Today’s look uses the Bundle Monster Teenage Dream stamping plate set. These plates came out a while ago, but this is one of the first looks I used using multiple plates. I was inspired by these nails by midnight_stamper. I did mine a little differently, but I think the overall look is the same. Check out how to get these nails down below!

(Yet Another) Green and Glitter Underliner Makeup Look

August 30, 2017

Green and Glitter Underliner

I’ve had the picture for this look edited and ready since my last rainbow eye makeup look, but I never got around to posting about it. Right when I posted that look, I started a retail job that unfortunately didn’t pan out. Now that I have the time again, let’s start writing again!

Today I’m sharing this Green and Glitter Underliner look. This is extremely similar to the Pink Underliner look I did back in June, but this time it’s green! Underliner is my favorite way to incorporate color into my eye makeup without looking overly done or dramatic. Check out how to get this Green and Glitter Underliner look down below!

Rainbow Gay Pride Makeup Feat. Sugarpill Cosmetics

July 13, 2017

Gay Pride Makeup

June is National Gay Pride month, and to celebrate I went down to New York to join my friends in watching the NYC Gay Pride Parade. Of course I was excited to support my friends and cheer on those who were marching, but I think I was most excited to do some colorful makeup. While on the weekends I like to get creative and rock some colorful makeup, rainbow eyes are just too bold for getting groceries. I created this Gay Pride makeup using Sugarpill Cosmetics, an indie brand that drag queens and bright makeup lovers alike love to use. Learn how to get my Gay Pride makeup down below!

May VNYL Subscription Review: #SPRINGiton

May VNYL Subscription Review: #SPRINGiton

This is a Rebel Post. Rebel Posts are off-topic posts about anything I feel like writing about. Please enjoy.

After getting into vinyl records, I had thirst for collecting vinyl. I was visiting the Newbury Comics near me almost every weekend for a new record. It got so bad I was visiting my local store almost three times a week. I created a Discogs account and started buying records off of there. I wanted every album I ever loved on record.

Then I found VNYL, a subscription service that used your Spotify, Last.FM and other accounts to hand-pick and deliver you three records a month. Honestly, I thought this was too good to be true at first. Would I actually get records that I love, or will I get records that sort of sound like what I would want but I don’t really like? Read my VNYL subscription review down below (with bonus YouTube video!)
