I Am My Mother’s Daughter

With Mother’s Day just a few days away, I can’t help the bittersweet feeling that always overwhelms me during this time of the year. I love seeing all the blog/Instagram/Facebook posts dedicated to finding the perfect gift for Mom and celebrating everything that moms do for their families, but it hurts at the same time, because I know I can’t do any of that with …

Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017!

Since we’re more than a full week into 2017, I thought I’d start this new year off on a positive note and blog about what 2016 was to me.

Make a Statement (Necklace)

One of my favorite things about styling outfits for myself or my friends is accessorizing! There’s nothing better than taking a favorite outfit that you’ve rocked so many times and infusing some freshness into it, giving you endless combinations and an excuse to keep buying those jewelry pieces that catch your eye.

Lush Loves: City Color Cosmetics

I’ve been on this major makeup-buying spree lately, thanks to this fabulous makeup group on Facebook. In the span of about two weeks, I’ve brought home two different bottles of foundation to try out, enough eye shadow pots and palettes to last me an eternity, and about a dozen colors of NYX’s soft matte lip cream that I’m currently obsessed with. While I’m as happy as …

Travel Files: Philadelphia

I’m a really, really lucky gal. My travel benefits through work are something I’m extremely thankful for, no matter how bad my job can seem on certain days. Traveling has been a big part of my life since I was about 12, from spending a week in a gorgeous Rome over Thanksgiving break in the 8th grade to taking a 24 hour trip to California to catch a one-time-only …
