    Easy Winged Eyeliner Tutorial

    This is probably my most requested post so far! I think it’s funny because my eyes are actually two different shapes, so they’re probably difficulty level: advanced. If you follow these steps, it should be much easier for you than it is for me to get everything even! Because of my one hooded eyelid, I struggled for YEARS trying to find a liner that wouldn’t rub off on my lid/crease!

    NYC Summer Packing Guide

    Helloooooooo from my little home for the month in NYC!! I’ve been here for less than 24 hours and can already tell I’m going to love it. For those of you who don’t know, I’m currently trying to decide where I’ll be moving to next. When my friend called me up a few weeks ago and asked if I wanted to sublet her apartment in Queens for the entire month of July, I said HECK YEAH I DO! Because what’s life without a little spontaneity? So here I am, settled into her apartment and *almost* ready to explore the city. It feels like a furnace outside today and it’s supposed…
