Holy Grail Beauty Products

The final installment (for now) of my holy grail series... & I saved the best for last!CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer ColorFor the better part of a decade, I was using a Chanel bronzer that has since been discontinued and replaced with this bronzer, and I have to say I've never used a better bronzer than any by Chanel. They're matte with just enough glow and...

BeautyChanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner in Jade (get it here!)I stopped at a Chanel counter to pick up some makeup and the woman wanted to play around with some makeup looks. She tested this eyeliner out on me and it matched my eyes so wonderfully that I ended up buying it (obviously). It's subtle but it has enough color that it really brightens and shows off...

#TeamBagel

I debated on whether or not I was going to write this post, mainly because I wasn't sure if I could get through it. I've known Bagel (or Chris Bagley to anyone who has met him in the last year) for most of my life and he has been one of my best friends since I was 12 (after a brief 7th grade summer romance, obviously). I remember when we first found out about his polycystic...

TV Show: CatfishI don't care what anyone says, this **** is entertaining. Especially this season, where we've seen Nev completely lose his **** on one Catfisher, and throw another Catfisher's phone into the ocean (literally). Both times producers had to pull him aside and be like "uh, WTF?". Either way, I find this whole concept fascinating, even if Ben does...

Today's installment: my holy grail, can't-live-without hair products. LUSH Seanik & Jumping Juniper Shampoo BarsThese have become pretty much the only shampoo that I use now and I don't know that I'll ever go back to regular shampoo. These shampoo bars are amazing. Seanik is made with seaweed and sea salt for extra...

Holy Grail Skin Care Products

So I was looking at my insanely extensive beauty, skincare, and hair care product compilation in my bathroom the other day and was thinking about which products I use the most. After looking through them, it occurred to me that there are a handful of products in each category that I keep re-purchasing no matter what new products I find. I've decided that these are what I would...

Influenster Go VoxBox

 I received another fun box of things from Influenster to test out and review, and the theme of this was the "Go VoxBox" for those with an active lifestyle. The box came with a lot of things which was awesome, and I was excited to try them out.Aqua Spa Relax Collection Body Crème ($9.99)The first thing I saw in the box was a huge full-sized bottle of lavender scented...

May 2014 Favorites

BeautyKiehls Creme de Corps (get it here!)My new favorite body lotion. Aside from the decently high price point considering it's just lotion, it's amazing. No scent (so if you're sensitive to that, this is perfect), and my arms & legs stay hydrated legitimately all day. To be fair on the price point issue, the 16 oz. bottle lasts me ages.Chanel Perfection Lumiere...

TV Show: Game of ThronesBen & I just started watching Game of Thrones on HBOGo - which I refrained from doing for a really long time because it didn't really seem up my alley. For the record, it's not, but it is still an incredible show. I've just decided I'm going to buy the boxset of the first 5 books on Kindle too.Movie: The Lego MovieSo I wasn't as obsessed...

April 2014 Favorites

BeautyDolce & Gabbana Passion Eyes Mascara (get it here!)I think this has ultimately become my favorite mascara of all time. I love the wiry brushes as opposed to ones with big, fat, soft bristles because the wiry ones really get in there and coat every single one of your lashes, defining them all. This is reminiscent of Diorshow Iconic to me, except better. The best comparisons...

TV Show: Chicago P.D.I've been loving this new Dick Wolf series, moreso than its counterpart Chicago Fire. If you're a crime show fan (especially a Law & Order SVU fan) and haven't checked this out yet, I suggest you do - Wednesdays at 10pm on NBC.Movie: Divergent If you haven't read the book, read it first.

90's Kid Tag

Favorite TV Show?Rugrats, all day, errday.Favorite Toy?Tamagotchis were the bomb. I made my parents babysit mine all the time, so it frequently died. I also loved Sky Dancers, but I was constantly flying mine into my sister's head or the wall.Favorite Commercial?Seriously, every single 90s toy commercial is amazing (check out RetroJunk's YouTube channel). But I loved Polly...

TV Show: Breaking BadBen and I are currently diving into season 4 of Breaking Bad, and holy anxiety. I feel like I'm going to throw up during half the scenes; not because of blood or anything gory, but because I'm literally on the edge of my seat. I'm not emotionally equipped for a show like this - but it truly is incredible. Movie: GravityI rented this movie on iTunes...

March Madness 2014 + My Bracket

It's finally here, y'all! The best part of the year in sports other than college football bowl season. I normally feel pretty decent going into March Madness in regards to all of my picks, but this year seems to be such a crapshoot. Michigan goes in as a 2 seed, which I think is appropriate. But Wisconsin, who lost to Michigan State in the Big Ten tournament, also goes in...

Warby Parker Spring Line 2014 + VOTE on My Best Look

I was contacted a few weeks ago by Brian Magida from Warby Parker, who asked if I wanted to review and write a post about their new Spring 2014 line. If I'm being honest, I didn't know too much about the concept behind Warby Parker prior to speaking with him, but Ben actually knew a ton about it and thinks it's a great company.The basic idea behind Warby Parker is inexpensive...

Who Owns Your Favorite Beauty Brand?

So I claim to be extremely knowledgeable about the beauty industry (because duh, I write a blog about it so clearly I think very highly of myself). However, if you would have told me that basically three companies own almost every makeup brand or beauty brand you could think of, I might have laughed in your face. It wasn't until last night when Ben was asking me questions about...

TV Show: DamagesSo Ben and I have been going through this show on Netflix pretty quickly (we're on season 4 of 5 and we started at the beginning of the month), and it's definitely intense but good. There are also only 13 episodes a season, so it's a quick show to get all the way through. And The O.C. lovers, Jimmy Cooper is a main character!Movie: FrozenI can't say...

Grammys 2014 Recap: Best & Worst Dressed
