At the start of my switch to cruelty free beauty products, nail polishes were an even bigger hit to my heart than makeup. I have an honestly unnecessary large collection of nail polish, and it was hard to face the fact that the majority of the brands I was using I wouldn’t be able to buy again. It took some time, but once you get past the big mainstream brands there are some great smaller and even indie brands that perform and look fun. Here are some brands that are not so hard to find for every price range from budget buys to a splurge.
Do you have a piece of clothing that’s “the one who got away?” Maybe you weren’t fast enough to scoop it up from the sale or it was just crazy out of your budget, but either way it left a little hole in your heart. Most fashion losses I can handle. I’ll be sad for a few days, but ultimately I can move on and look back without regret. Though, once in awhile there’s an item that I can’t get out of your head and always seems to pop up in my head when I’m staring at my closet.
Right about now I feel like I’ve been wearing at least 5 layers of clothes everyday for months. The winter weather can make me feel super frumpy. That’s when I use these hacks, so my winter style feels a bit more sleek, without giving up any of the warmth.
Putting on this outfit made me feel so cool. There is something about a strictly black and white outfit just feels so bold without being a bright ball of color. Maybe the StormTroopers are on to something.
It’s a New Year! It may be a little late for the celebrations, but maybe a look back to last year we’ll be inspiration for this one. That strategy wont work with everything, but definitely for books. I’m a little amazed that I was able to stick with this PopSugar Reading Challenge for an entire year. My only other successful resolution has been starting a regular practice of yoga (which I’ve been doing now for over 3 years.) So push away the thoughts of abandoned resolutions past for a moment and maybe you’ll at least find a good book rec below.
With Christmas and several days of snow behind me, I think it’s about time to put Fall aside and accept that it’s time for winter (and being cold all the time.) I would say that Fall was actually a lot of fun. I dived head first into ethical sneakers and the Fall TV show lineup was very entertaining. Here’s what made the short list for the season:
I love how the holiday season automatically means Star Wars. It’s another awesome thing to do and appreciate this time of year, and it has become a tradition for my family to go see it together opening weekend.
I’ve been going through a winter cold this week, so I decided it was best to stay inside, away from the freezing temperatures. Snow filled pictures will have to wait until later. In the meantime, this outfit has a bit of old and new in it.
At the very start of this project I had no idea where anything was going, but I knew I wanted to make a gallery wall. I didn’t have a paint color picked out or a layout in mind, but I had a Pinterest board full of art prints waiting for the right moment.
