My Daily Makeup Routine

My Daily Makeup Routine

I'm here today to share my favorites from my daily makeup routine! So I have tried a lot of different products over the past couple years. I used to have really sensitive skin when I was younger but as I got older, I have developed a combination skin type (mix of oily and dry). So I have a few versions of my daily makeup routine. They usually fall somewhere in-between: [...]

Me and two of my dear friends went to visit a giant sunflower field in Avon, Ohio called Maria's Field of Hope [...]

Hair Care Products | Everyday Hair Care Routine

Me and my my hair haven't always gotten along. When I was younger, everyone had thin, straight, blonde hair and I had thick, wavy brunette hair. I never had any urge to go blonde—that would be a disaster—but I did always want straighter hair. Before I got a straightener, my mom used to iron my hair on an ironing board...yeah don't do that lol. As I got older, I learned to love my hair [...]

Designer Dupe // D.I.Y Woven Basket Bag

Designer Dupe // D.I.Y Woven Basket Bag

This basket bag trend is absolutely one of my favorites. It's like carrying a little picnic basket on your arm. I saw this JADETribe bag on Instagram, checked it out and the price seemed way too high for me. It also seemed pretty easy to try to make. So I sought out a basket bag on Etsy that fit the shape I was looking for, got some string and created this little designer dupe [...]

Designer Dupe // D.I.Y WINK Espadrilles

Designer Dupe // D.I.Y WINK Espadrilles

I have been eyeing the Jason Polan Wink Embroidered Smoking Slippers from Soludos for quite awhile now. But I just couldn't justify spending the money on them because they aren't a pair of shoes that I would wear constantly. They would be more of a quirky piece I would pair only with certain outfits. So I decided to make them instead! These were inspired by the Soludos that retail for $75. My D.I.Y version cost me about $25. They are so fun and simple to make [...]

D.I.Y Headboard

D.I.Y Headboard

I saw something similar at Anthrpologie awhile back and thought hmm I can make that! So I started researching how to make paper flowers. I realized the amount I needed to make what I was envisioning were going to take forever and I had just moved into my new apartment at the time and I desperately wanted something on my walls. So I almost abandoned the idea, but I'm so glad I didn't because this has become such a staple piece for me [...]

My 6 Favorite Lipsticks

My 6 Favorite Lipsticks

Oh man do I love lipstick! It is for sure my favorite beauty product. I think that a little lipstick can do wonders for your mood. Lipstick can pull any sort of look together, or add a little something extra if you don't have a ton of accessories on. And seriously, everyone can rock a good lipstick, you just have to find the right shade for you. Be bold [...]

D.I.Y Pom Pom Trim Pillow Case

D.I.Y Pom Pom Trim Pillow Case

Awhile back I was apart of a workshop where we tried our hands at hand dyeing shibori fabric. My 6th grade camp self was extremely excited to find a reason to tie dye something as an adult! I dyed these cotton tea towels that came out absolutely beautiful and I wanted to turn them into something. I needed new pillows desperately and i couldn't seem to find any that I liked. So of course, time to make something. I am totally on the pom pom train with everyone else so I thought combining my shibori fabric and a pom pom trim would make an (inexpensive!) pillowcase I would be happy to lay my head on [...]
