Growing up in New Jersey, I became immune to frosty falls and white Winters. I loved bundling up in scarves and peacoats during the colder months and taking the train into the city to go Christmas shopping. Winter has always been my favorite time of the year. The temperature is finally lowering in North Carolina! This past weekend, I turned off the AC and opened the windows. As well as…

Are Eyelash Extensions Worth it?

at

I’m always up for trying new things and eyelash extensions intrigued me! I work in television and the idea of having beautiful lashes without wearing falsies for shoots sounded wonderful. Perhaps… too good to be true. I live close to Amazing Lash Studio so I booked an appointment for Saturday morning.

I Tried Lula Roe So You Don’t Have To!

at

Some people love LulaRoe… Some people hate it… (Going as far as calling it a ‘scam’). LulaRoe seemed to pop up out of nowhere and then, took the world by storm. I got bit by the LulaRoe bug and want to share some of my favorites (and not so favorite) things about the brand. And guess what? No affiliate links, sponsorships, or gimmicks.

Since, I haven’t been able to lose the extra-pounds and have carried the weight of low self-esteem around with me. I’ve never been a tiny girl per say. And in a skewed society where beauty is…
