• Glitter Eye Makeup Tips

    December 17, 2014 at 3:28 am // by

    It’s glitter season and you know what that means—it’s going to be everywhere. Wearing sequin shirts and sparkly accessories is one thing, but having loose glitter cascading down your cheeks is another. Sporting glitter eye makeup at a party can be super fun, but it can also leave you wondering “was it worth it?” the next day. Yep, the clean up can get pretty messy! It is a bit more complicated than your average eyeshadow application, but wearing glitter isn’t […]

    Long, full lashes are a staple in any bold beauty look that goes with holiday outfits and stands out in photos, but sadly those gorgeous mascara commercials aren’t exactly the reality. In order to achieve the lashes of your dreams, you have a number of options beyond mascara, like applying falsies yourself or heading to the salon for lash extensions.

  • How to Manage Holiday Stress

    December 11, 2014 at 9:20 am // by

    No doubt the end of the year is a joyful time, but the holidays can also bring on a lot of stress. It’s easy to lose sight of what’s important and (literally) get wrapped up in the details. School and work don’t miss a beat just because the holidays are here, so often we end up needing to ramp things up a bit and plow full speed ahead into the new year. Before you get in over your head, try […]

  • 6 Ways to Wear Sparkle

    December 9, 2014 at 3:30 am // by

    Sparkle. You’ll hear this word over and over this season. Because, while all year we’re able to shine bright by wearing sequin skirts and glitter nails, by December something takes over that has you wearing more bling than you care to admit. You don’t have to wear layers of sparkle to show off your love of the holidays or things that glisten. Even Human the Cat is a sucker for things that reflect. :) Sometimes we can risk going overboard […]

    The “Have it All” Mentality

    As 2014 comes to a close, I look back on everything I’ve accomplished and all those things I have yet to do.

Am I doing enough? is a question on almost every twenty- or thirty-something’s mind. More than ever, as women, we can choose what path is right for us. It’s not just about a work/life balance, but being able to […]
