Today kicks of the biggest shopping days of the year and I thought I would share with you a gift guide on the latest value sets available.

a new direction for an old blog

new-new-logo

Over the last several months, I have been toying with the idea of focusing and rebranding this blog. It’s been something that I felt like needed to happen: my posts were all over the place and needed one overarching theme to hold it together. Previously, I blogged about things that inspired me – however, as a girl with many many passions, a LOT of things inspire me. Everything from books...

review: maybelline’s master strobing sticks

maybelline strobing sticks

If there is one makeup trend that I have fallen in love with, it’s having that amazing pop of highlight on the cheekbone. I love that highlighters and illuminators have become more and more common and we’re starting to see more affordable drugstore brands start to offer items to compete with the higher end brands. When I heard that Maybelline was releasing their version of strobing sticks, I knew I had...

video game filled weekend | pax west 2016

Over Labor Day weekend, I attended PAX Prime West at the Washington Convention Center and I had a blast. It was four days basically filled with walking around, trying out new games, seeing new tech and, overall, just having fun. Sure, by the end of each day, I was exhausted…we hardly ate and the one day that we did eat (which happened to be the last day), I felt amazing afterwards. So...

unboxing: smuggler’s bounty | jabba’s palace

smuggler's bounty | jabba's palace | funko

There is just something about subscription boxes that I love, but when they are Star Wars themed, I am over the moon for them. A few weeks ago, I received the smuggler’s bounty (the Funko Star Wars box) in the mail and I am super excited to share the goodies inside. The theme was jabba’s palace, so you are going to be seeing items that align with things we have...

makeup haul: sephora, ulta, + nars

thumbnail-makeuphaul-060416

I am a self-proclaimed makeup junkie. Whenever I see something new on Sephora, Ulta, or even the drugstore, I just drool. It’s crazy how many shades of mauve lipsticks I have and I still do not have enough. I recently went a bit crazy in Ulta, Sephora, and the Nars boutique in Vegas and thought I would share this little makeup haul with you. Among the new pieces I purchased was the amazing...

unboxing: legion of collectors plus mini funko haul

legion of collector dc tv box

It’s been a while since my last post, but I’m back and with another video! In case you missed it, I’m obsessed with anything Funko. I am subscribed to smuggler’s bounty, legion of collectors, and collector corps, so I (on a monthly basis) am always adding to my collection. This month’s Legion of Collectors was a DC TV theme, so you got goodies from arrow, the flash, legends of tomorrow, and supergirl. DC is...

funko haul! new pop vinyls & rock candy

funko haul: rock candy + pop vinyl

One of the things I love to collect is Funko figures: Pop!, Dorbz, and, now, the Rock Candy line. I went a little Funko-crazy this weekend while shopping (when I should have been shopping for work clothes!) I am in love with the new rock candy line. They are gorgeous, well done, and super cute! I only have the classic Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn, but I am on the...
