Famous For Trying On Shoes

Writing a blog post every day is harder than I thought it would be! With work everyday and other various things it is very difficult to squeeze in a post here and there.

And with my most recent trip to Seattle (pictures to come tomorrow) I have been a bit behind! But here is a picture I wanted to share of myself and another intern Brittany at an event a few weeks ago, we made it into the Detroit News for trying on shoes…my mom was so proud!

Birthday Celbrations

Last night was my best friend Alex’s 21st birthday! We have been friends since kindergarten and still go to school together. Last night my friend Morgan and I left right from work and drove up to our stomping ground to celebrate! Here are some fun photos! I loved going with a simple/neutral outfit and adding a sparkly jcrew clutch and bright essie nail color! xx

July Birchbox Review

Yesterday was a crazy day at work, I have never had more to do. I even gave up on a trip to the mall last night so I could stay at work to get more done…I know scary to think about! But imagine my excitement when I came home from this long day to find that my July Birchbox had come! I was looking forward to this one in particular since it was going to be a collaboration with one of my favorite magazines, Glamour!

Drum roll please…

1. Amika Opliphica Nourishing Hair Mask: This lush mask works as a weekly treatment or an everyday deep conditioner. In the shower, smooth a generous amount through damp hair, concentrating on the ends. Let the mask sink in for two to five minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

2. Amika Obliphica Hair Treatment: Apply a few drops to the palms of your hands and smooth evenly through damp hair before styling to protect against heat. We also love to use it on dry hair — smooth a couple drops from the mid-length through ends of hair for extra shine and smoothness.

3. Boscia B.B. Cream SPF 27:After washing your face, apply a quarter-sized amount onto clean, dry skin. For best results, apply in small circular motions, gently pressing into skin. There’s no need to follow with concealer or foundation. Build for additional coverage.

4. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner: If you’re a liner novice, draw a few dots as close to your upper lashes as possible with the tip and then connect the dots. More advanced users can trace a single stroke across their lashline.

5. Harvey Prince Hello Perfume: Apply to pulse points — wrists, neck, behind your ears, inner elbow. To make it last all day (and night), spritz a tiny bit on the ends of your hair.

Extras:

  • LARABAR– a yummy snack!
  • Earbud headphones

 

Weeekend Wrap Up

After dinner we drove down the shore to wear the riverwalk is downtown. I saw my office building as well as a bunch of other Detroit landmarks. Here are a few of the photos I snapped, don’t drool too much! xx

Patriotic Pride

Im dying for this little red and blue tunic, it would be oh so perfect for sorority recruitment, or just anything in general. I first saw this little gem on one my new favorite blogs With Love From, Kat (you should follow her) and just fell in love.

Image

This tunic from Sail to Sable is just beyond and would be the perfect addition to anyones summer wardbrobe. It comes in a bunch of other colors/prints and the shop also has pillows, placemats and napkins. The cute tunics look adorable with a pair of jack rogers too!

Which one is your favorite?? xx

NYC Gifts

CPAmom and HS were in new york last weekend for a wedding and brought home some of my favorite things. They definitely out did themselves, but I’m not complaining! It almost felt like Christmas!

Image

1. NARS Laguna Bronzer: If there is on product I can’t live with out, its this one step wonder. I swear it looks like you have been away on a tropical vacation while wearing it. I have been wearing this since middle school, it was my first big girl makeup purchase. Ever since, I have turned all of my girlfriends on it, even the ones who once thought it was silly to spend $34 on a bronzer.

2. Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume: A mini version of the popular scent is perfect for travel!

3. Mally Shadow Stick in Dusk: Got this two summers ago and needed to restock. Mally is only available online and at Bendels. One swipe of this stick and you are good to go!

4. PRADA Candy Perfume: This new scent has been on my wish list, so I have to say this was my favorite. This actually smells just like candy and I have to admit that I was so in love when I first got it, I wore it to bed.

5. David Yurman Albion Ring: I love the black gemstone that can be worn day and night!

7. C.Wonder Cuff: I am everything but a biker chick, and I look silly wearing anything of the sort but when I saw this little bracelet I had to give it a try. If you are going for that trend but don’t want to go all out, this is perfect for you!
