Let's play CATCH UP: a vlog, pictures, and recent outfits!

HELLO EVERYONE! I have missed blogging so much - life has been crazy lately! I feel like always say that but unfortunately when I get busy at work and with other things, blogging tends to fall through the cracks. My grad school apps are due in DAYS and I am just ready to be done with it all. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are planning a great NYE. My best friend Jimmy is coming to visit me and gets in tomorrow - I am SO beyond ready to see him - I haven't seen him since April! We are planning a chill NYE - nothing too crazy in the works :) 

I wanted to share this video I filmed vlog style on Chritmas Eve - I share my outfit, makeup, my dogs in ATL, and my house!

Let me know if you guys like these types of videos that are more casual & vlog style :) 

I haven't blogged in a while, but like I always say - you can keep up with me through my instagram (I am addicted) 

Last weekend was my parent's 31st wedding anniversary and we had an amazing party at our house - I seriously haven't had that much fun in forever - it was beautiful and we partied till 4am! We had catering from our restaurant Luciano's, live music and mariachi - it was the BEST!

I took my GMAT last week (and did the best I have ever done!!! woo!) and then I got a sinus infection (boo), but thankfully was all better by the weekend thanks the the Z pack. My sister and I drove home to ATL for the holidays last Friday and stayed until yesterday so we had an amazing time off spending it with our family. I am so glad I took days off this year during Christmas! On the 20th, it was my baby sister's 21st B-DAY which I CANNOT BELIEVE!! She is my baby.. but not so much anymore! She had a great time on her bday - as every 21 year old should! ha! Christmas Eve is the day that we usually celebrate and we had an amazing dinner and fun time at my aunt and uncles house!

We had so much fun taking pictures with this frame that our family member Mariana made!

Life Lately: Last Week, Weekend + a Haul!

Happy Monday LOVES! Life has not been TOO interesting with me lately. I spend most of my free time studying and writing applications and I only have about four weeks left to finish everything so you bet your bottom dollar that I am working my butt off! I can't wait to be done with everything and actually know where I get into school and will be next fall!

Life Lately: Thanksgiving and more!

Happy Monday everybody and welcome to December! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! It's been a little while since I have had a life update here, so I wanted to share some pictures from my last few weeks! :) I just got back from spending Thanksgiving in Atlanta, my hometown, with my family. It was so great to see family and just spend time relaxing with them.

Recent Outfits

I feel like I am always wearing the same pieces over and over again! I love my J.Crew Pixie Pants (I have 3 pairs) and I have been living in my Blank faux leather jacket these past months. Also - my entire family told me that I looked like Aladdin on Thanksgiving - kind of true?

I hope you all have a wonderful week! Stay tuned for lots of videos this week - I should have a huge OCT/NOV favorites video and my black Friday haul up this week! :)

Makeup Tutorial: My Everyday Fall Makeup Routine

Hi everybody! I hope you are all having a great week so far and are ready for the Thanksgiving! :) Thanksgiving is probably my second favorite holiday after Christmas. I love spending time with my family, and it officially means that the holiday season is upon us! Can we all pause for a moment and wonder where this year has gone? It is really insane! 

I wanted to share a makeup tutorial that I posted on my YouTube channel yesterday. I don't post tutorials often, but I decided to film my everyday makeup routine to share. Watch to see my current favorite products and my current favorite eyeshadow palette - the Lorac Unzipped palette! 

Products Used: 

As always, you can always request any type of video or review on any product. Thank you so much for watching! I hope that you all have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving! :)

Alchemy: the workshop - my favorite salon in Charlotte!

You know how they always say the hardest part about moving cities is finding a new doctor and hair stylist? Well... I AGREE! Especially about the hairdresser part! I remember how sad I was to leave my hair stylist Stephanie who I went to for 4 years while living in Boston. She just GOT me. She understood exactly what I wanted and was always honest. Sine college, I have lived in three different cities and it is honestly really hard to find "the one" - aka your perfect hair stylist. My natural hair color is a dark mousy brown (not cute) and ever since I was 16, I started highlighting my hair. I am meant to be blonde! I have tried dark hair on several occasions and it just doesn't work out for me. I LOVE the look of a dark chocolate brown, but I am a blonde at heart and it has definitely been hard trying to find that perfect shade for me. I don't want to be bleach blonde or white blonde - for me, it's all about the golden blonde. 

Once I moved to Charlotte, I started going to the hair stylist my mom knew here. I ended up having him dye it brown and it turned into this not so cute red/purple toned hair that I was NOT happy with . Enter the lovely Alexa (the mastermind behind Southern Living Our Way) - I came across her blog and we started e-mailing back and forth talking about Charlotte. She told me about Taylor, her stylist, and how amazing she was and I decided to give it a try! (THANK you Alexa, I owe you & love you!!) It was love at first sight with Taylor and her amazing boyfriend Kyle - she took me from a redish brown to a golden blonde in a few hours & I knew I had found "the one"! Taylor told me about the salon they were working on opening, and I couldn't wait to see the finished product! 

 photo ScreenShot2013-11-20at22729PM_zpsf8724105.png

Alchemy: the workshop opened earlier this year, and I can't say enough amazing things about their salon. Not only is the staff the most friendliest and sweetest people I have ever come across, but their salon is unlike any other. It is a true experience every time you go and you get pampered from the moment you step in until you walk out the door. Taylor is incredible. She isn't 25 yet and she opened her own freakin salon - how amazing is that? Not to mention - she is probably the sweetest person I have ever met. She is a Paul Mitchell educator so all of the salon uses PM products which I have grown to love since knowing Taylor & Kyle!

Taylor & Kyle - love them & the finished product! :)

Miami & Weekend Recap

Hi my loves! I hope you all had lovely weekends and ready to start a fresh new week. It's a beautiful fall day here in Charlotte & good weather always puts me in a good mood :) I was in Miami for most of last week and had a relaxing productive weekend. I have a lot going on work wise and I am also applying to grad school at the moment so bear with me during these next few crazy months. Sometimes I go MIA, but you can always find me on Instagram

I was in Miami for work and it is one of my favorite places to go for market visits. We always stay in Coral Gables because that is where most of our meetings tend to be, and it is such a cute town! The weather was amazing, and the food was incredible. I am a total seafood and sushi lover and Miami has the BEST of both. We had fabulous meals at Sushi Samba (Coral Gables) & Mr. Yum as well [my mouth is watering thinking about it]. It was a short 2 night trip, but we had some great meetings! 

Friday was back to work and I FINALLY had time to get my hair done! My roots were so bad, but Taylor & Kyle from Alchemy: the workshop worked their hair magic on me & I am happier than ever with my hair color - stay tuned for a full review on my favorite salon in Charlotte this week!! :) 

Out to dinner in Miami: Blazer: Trouve (on sale!) | Shirt: Nasty Gal (old - but they have a similar) | Shorts: Forever 21 | Booties: Shoemint | Purse: Tory Burch | Necklace: Foli Foli

Saturday was spent studying and writing essays! Yesterday was chill as well with more grad school work, and a short trip to the mall. I ended up getting some goodies from the Chanel & Giorgio Armani counter (haul will be up soon of course!) & then had dinner with my parents at their place. I hadn't seen them in a month and it was too long!

Casual Sunday Outfit: Cardigan: Nordstrom BP | T-shirt: J.Crew | Leggings: Zella Live in Leggings | Boots: Tory Burch Bristol Boots in Black (on sale!!)

Shop Now: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Happy Wednesday everybody! Writing from Miami, FL today as I am here for work for a few days. The weather is still warm although rainy, but I am glad to be missing the random cold front that NC got today! I wanted to remind you all of the amazing sale that Nordstrom is currently having! 

I always try to get a few staple pieces during this time. I know I say this a lot, but Nordstrom is my absolute favorite store. They have the BEST return policy and customer service, and I am a huge fan. So far, I only picked up a couple of items since I had a gift card burning a hole in my wallet, but I am definitely eying a lot of other things! 

This grey Trove blazer I bought in store & I am IN LOVE with it! Such a great versatile piece to wear to work with dresses, pants, and skirts. It also looks super cute over a basic t-shirt and skinny jeans and boots. At $60 it is really a steal for how many times you would wear it. I think it runs pretty TTS if not a little big (I got the Medium for reference). 
Trouve Three Pocket Blazer - $58 [in Heather Dark Charcoal]

I placed the heels order online, so I am not sure if I am in love yet, but I have been looking for a classic pair of pointed toed heels. These are by Sam Edleman and reduced to $88 - great deal! I also like how it is a suede and leather combo. I can see these going great with basically anything! Definitely a classic.

Here are some of the other options I am eying - such great things on sale! 

Happy Shopping!

Sephora VIB Sale Recommendations + Haul!

Hello my lovelies!! Today marks the beginning of the Sephora VIB sale! The sale is for everyone who is a VIB (all you have to do is sign up on their website) and you are able to get 20% off from now until the 11th! Use code VIBTOPIA to get 20% your entire purchase - seriously such an amazing deal! I recommend stocking up on skincare and makeup items that are hard to find on a discount. I placed an order a few weeks back during the F&F sale that Sephora had and wanted to share what I had purchased and my thoughts since I have already been using most of them! Also - an October beauty favorites video will be up hopefully by tomorrow or latest by Monday!
I already made my "big" purchase during the F&F sale and I am glad I did because two of the items I bought have already sold out! 

The happiest of packages :)
 photo 4de4aa6440a811e39c0022000aaa031d_8_zps0c7af548.jpg

Lorac Unzipped Palette ($40) - unfortunately this amazing palette is now OOS on the Sephora website! The last time that I went into the store, I noticed that they had stopped selling Lorac, so your best bet might be at Ulta - I also found it online at Nordstrom  - I really can't tell you how GORGEOUS this palette is in person. It is rare to see a palette where every single shade is wearable. I highly recommend this palette to anyone - even if you already have the nakeds - it is totally worth it. I love the packaging as well - not too flimsy, but still thin enough to travel with. I have used this every single day since it was delivered and I am in love!
 photo loracunzipped_zps3f1be008.png

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette ($58) - another sold out item on the Sephora site (sorry!) but this is another product I have been loving. These HOURGLASS powders get rave reviews in the beauty community, so when I saw this palette, I knew I had to have it. I found the palette online at Barney's, but you may also have luck finding it in store. These powders are gorgeous. They are not your typical highlighter - they do not have the shimmery effect as say a MAC MSF would have, but these provide a beautiful glow to the skin. The darkest color looks gorgeous over bronzer! The other two I have used as a highlight and they look beautiful as well! Definitely snatch this up while you still can!
 photo three_zpscda02981.png

The rest of the items were pretty basic - the Josie Maran Argan Balm (been loving), one of my favorite go-to perfumes: Taylor Swift's Wonderstruck, and a new face wash: Origins Checks & Balances Frothy Face Wash $21 (& frothy it is - love it!)
 photo two_zps0ce435f3.png

These are some of my favorite items and picks from Sephora! Let me know if you have questions or need any recommendations!

Happy Shopping!

Miami Recap!

Happy Wednesday loves! Hope you are all having a great week so far. I wanted to share some pictures from my weekend trip to Miami! I had so much fun with my sister and the weather was incredibly beautiful! We were able to hang on the beach all of Saturday and it was AMAZING. 

We got on Friday night and went to dinner at the amazing Katsuya at the SLS Hotel in South Beach. I have eaten at the Katsuya in LA before, and it was amazing in South Beach as well. We were in love with the shisito peppers and the amazing rock shrimp! We then went to Hyde at the hotel as well - such a beautiful lounge!

 photo MIAMIONE_zps63f2ee08.png

 Saturday was so much fun! We had brunch, laid on the beach & relaxed! At night, we headed to LIV to see Nervo - it was amazing! Such a great concert! I took horrible pics and didn't even take an outfit pic (blogging fail - I know!). Sunday, we ate at Sushi Samba (had more peppers), walked around Lincoln Road, and had a little Sunday funday action! Our flight was really delayed so we did not get back till past midnight!
 photo twomiami_zps7591eb11.png

I highly recommend Miami this time of year! It was GORGEOUS weather and not really crowded! I will actually be back there next week for work, but hope to be able to enjoy the weather again! :)

Products I Have Used Up: Empties #3

Hi everyone! First of all - HAPPY NOVEMBER! Second of all - Happy Friday! I hope you all have fun weekends planned! I am off to Miami later today with my sister for a girls trip! I am so excited! The weather is going to be gorgeous - who knew Miami was 90 degrees in November? I have never been to Miami for fun - just for work, so I can't wait to explore South Beach! 

I have a new video to share! Another installment of my Products I Have Used Up videos. I basically show you my trash, but as weird as it sounds, these are my favorite types of videos to watch. Being a beauty lover and having more products that I should, it is always satisfying to actually finish any beauty product. These were items I finished up in the last few months - let me know if you guys like these types of videos and as always any requests! :)

I hope you have all have a great weekend! :)

Weekend Recap: Blo Dry Bar, new video, & lots of studying!

Happy Monday loves! TOTALLY lame weekend for me - I dedicated almost the entire weekend to grad school applications and studying! It is hard to get into study mode, but I was able to do it! Friday night, my sister and I worked out with our trainer and I called it an early night (after a little trip to Ulta!). Saturday, I was able to try the new Blo Blow Dry Bar in Charlotte! I loved it! If you know me, you know that blowouts are my guilty pleasure - thank you so much to the lovely girls at Blo for the great experience - I will definitely be back! 
 photo e5b1a59c3e6211e3870722000ae810a8_8_zps22522510.jpg

I got the "Red Carpet" from the hair menu - basic blowout with lots of volume! My stylist was S.H. & she was awesome!
 photo one_zps7953cdd3.png

I also uploaded a new video - it is a bathroom tour + what is in my shower? I know it seems like an odd type of video, but it is a highly requested video on my YouTube channel :) 

Saturday night & basically all day yesterday were spent studying and writing - maybe not that fun, but I definitely feel accomplished! I am heading to Miami on Friday for a girls weekend with my sister. We are going to see her favorite DJ Nervo on Saturday, but if you guys have any recommendations, please let me know! I have never been to Miami for fun - just work! I hope you all have a wonderful week! )

Review: Tom Ford Cognac Sable Eyeshadow Quad & Ultra Shine Lip Gloss

I blame my Tom Ford beauty purchases on the biggest enabler ever - my best friend Mon! Ever since she started her obsession, I couldn't wait to try out some of the products. When I was in Chicago last week, I popped into Neiman Marcus to "look" at the Tom Ford beauty line. 2 hours later and a full face makeup application, I was sold. I wanted to buy everything! Everything that the makeup artist used on my face was amazing. I am slowly going to be adding more of the line into my collection - the next things I am eying are the illuminating highlighting pen and the lip color in casablanca!
 Is it necessary to spend 80 dollars on an eyeshadow quad? Probably not.. but in our eyes - IT IS! :) I have never worked with such beautiful, pigmented and blend-able eye-shadows. Worth every penny for me, and I know I am going to use it for a long time! I decided to go with the Cognac Sable quad because I wanted to get one I could wear every day, but also one that I had a few standout shades. I am very happy with my purchase. I also picked up the gorgeous ultra shine lipgloss in Peach Absolute. AMAZING as well! I really want to get a red shade too.
