  • Urban Decay Naked II & III Palettes: First Look

    Urban Decay Naked II & III Palettes: First Look

    Beauty  |  Austin, TX

    When I bought the original Urban Decay Naked palette, I was a student in art school working a $13.50 per hour job as a graphic designer. It was the first thing I bought for myself with my own hard-earned money, and it is still one of the most beautiful, versatile palettes that I own. Of course, I wanted to complete the collection so I recently purchased both the Naked II and III palettes. The eyeshadows in each are different from the original so I thought it would be helpful to give my first impressions on the shades, formulation, packaging, and overall opinions. Read on for my thoughts!

    Kate Spade Favorites

    Kate Spade Favorites

    Style  |  Austin, TX

    Kate Spade New York has consistently been one of my favorite brands since 2014. The product designs are whimsical, feminine, and classic – some of the traits I aspire to be. Plus they have wonderful sales! Over the last couple years, I’ve accumulated quite a collection of lovely things by Kate Spade. So in this post, I simply wanted to look back at a few particular pieces which I can safely call my “favorite” (though honestly, all of them are my favorite). Some of them may not be available, but I will link something similar.

    A Perfectly Organized Closet

    A Perfectly Organized Closet

    Style  |  Austin, TX

    Organizing my closet and keeping it immaculate is a habit I’ve cultivated since I was a child. I love color-coordinating in general so this was quite fun for me! No matter how small my closet was – from the minimal wooden dresser in my university dorm room to my current walk-in closet, I always stick to it. Keeping my clothing neatly hung and categorized minimizes the time it takes for me to select an outfit and get ready in the morning. Of course, it can be challenging to start but I’m here to provide some tips and make your life a little less hassle-free.

    My Everyday Makeup Routine

    My Everyday Makeup Routine

    Beauty  |  Austin, TX

    When I first plunged into the realm of cosmetics, I slathered every inch of my face in thick foundations, concealers, and powders. Now, I wear fairly light makeup that emphasizes clear, dewy skin. I’m not too keen on wearing loads of makeup on a daily basis since, a) That’s terrible for the skin, b) Ain’t nobody got time for that, c) I like subtly enhancing my features instead. The entire process takes me around 10 minutes, as opposed to the 30+ minutes it took me prior.

    100 Questions

    100 Questions

    Life  |  Austin, TX

    Work and life is kind of chaotic at the moment, so I just wanted to do something fun and low-key in this post. Back in my Tumblr blog era, I’d always participate in those “Send me a question in my ask box” type of things, and answering all my followers’ questions would be the highlight of my day. So as I thought, why not just answer 100 questions at once? No one asked (lol), but it would provide some entertainment through the stress. Plus I think the whole idea is introspective and self-enriching.
