We All Have A Paris: Growing Up With Gilmore Girls

I didn’t truly understand what I had in Gilmore Girls until it was gone.Now that it’s back, I’ve thought about what it has meant and still means to me as a loyal Gilmore fan and someone who has grown up alongside the characters. The show was fun, smart, quick, witty, and unique. Amy Sherman-Palladino somehow created a world that was so intriguing, so lovable, and so relatable. Looking back at what it meant to me as teenager, I realized the...

Easy DIY Holiday Wreath

Have you gone shopping for holiday decorations recently? Ever notice how expensive certain items are? I saw a wreath (well, a lot of wreaths) in the store and I knew I could make it myself. Even better, I knew I could customize it to my own taste. If you’ve felt intimidated by the task, it really doesn’t need to be difficult. Here is how I made my own wreath using items I found at Michael’s and Christmas Tree Shoppe. Here’s what...

My Favorite Makeup Geek Eye Shadows

For the past eight months or so, I’ve been using eye shadows from a company called Makeup Geek. I was in the market for some new eye shadows and decided to give it a try after hearing about the brand from various videos (one of the results of jumping down the YouTube rabbit hole). No, this isn’t sponsored. I’m not that cool (yet). I just really love these products and want to share them with you. I love that this...

Reducing Makeup Clutter With Z-Palettes

I love to organize, declutter, and save space. Recently, I realized that it brings me a sense of peace and relaxation. Am I weird or just getting old? As I mentioned in my Makeup Geek review, I really had no clue what  Z-palettes were until I started researching buying individual eye shadow pans. I was also clueless when it came to de-potting makeup pans from their original packaging. These palettes have helped me declutter my makeup collection, they save space, and they...

That Time I Met The Gilmore Girls Family

I have an amazing Gilmore Girls-related tale to tell. I have never committed this story to paper. Besides the friends I’ve told and one Facebook post, this has literally been a legend in my own mind. It’s also one of those stories that makes you say “Only in New York”. All the news and excitement about the revival not only renewed my own love of the show, but also reminded me of my all time favorite New York and Gilmore...

If My (Work) Goals Were Honest

If you work in any sort of corporate or office environment, you are most likely evaluated every year on a scale that measures your “success” for that year. And each new year, you have to come up with new objectives or goals. In my case, I have to come up with objectives that are somehow “measureable”. Recently, I’ve really struggled with wanting to be the conscientious, attentive person that I am, but pulling me the other way is my desire...

My Work Wardrobe Essentials

Working in an office day in day out, it becomes a bit of a challenge to put together outfits every morning. I would love to tell you that I plan ahead and pick my clothes out the night before, but in reality I’m the worst at that task. Even when I have planned out an outfit, I end up changing it in the morning anyway–the weather just doesn’t cooperate with what I planned, or I just don’t feel like wearing a...
