As we head into June and the weather continues to get warmer, my daily uniform becomes a pair of denim cutoffs, a loose t-shirt and my trusty Birkenstocks. I now have four pairs of them and really want to snag a navy blue pair next! If you guys are curious on other ways to style them, check out my video below which shows how I wear them!

I’m so excited to finally be able to announce my partnership with Sassoon as a Sassoon Style Influencer! I’ve been working with the brand for the past couple months now and have been in and out of the salon working working with the Color Director, Valencia to create the perfect shade of blonde and the Senior Creative Director, Elaine, to shape and cut my hair to just the right length.

Last month, my sweet friend Krystal came into the salon with me one afternoon and we selected hairstyles off of their Blow & Style menu. The team then created a fun video of our time there and some fun behind the scenes to show you how it’s done. I hope you guys enjoy!



Hi guys! Today’s post is a video I created in partnership with Got2b Volumaniac on how to get voluminous curls. It took me about 20 minutes and all you need are these three products and a curling iron!

Read more below to learn how to get the look! 

Step 1: Start with wet hair and spritz Got2b Volumaniac Root Lifting Spray on your roots and work into hair.

Step 2: Next pump a small amount of Got2b Volumaniac Bodifying Mousse into your hands, rub between your palms and work into your hair starting at your roots making your way down to the tips.

Step 3: Rough blow dry your hair, which will create texture and volume.

Step 4: Then section off your hair and begin curling it with your favorite curling iron. I like my Conair wand from Target, but use whatever tool works best for you. Finger comb the curls to create some separation.

Step 5: Flip your head over and begin spraying your whole head with Got2b Volumaniac Bodify Hairspray.

Et voila! Your’e all done! You should now have the most voluminous curls ever! If you guys have any questions about this tutorial please leave me a comment below!

Thanks for stopping by and happy Friday! xo

Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel here!

I linked to as many pieces I could find online, but unfortunately Forever 21 doesn’t always list everything they have in the stores online. :/

Forever 21 Pieces:
Cat socks
White Dress
Shorts: I couldn’t find these exact shorts but here is a very similar style
Black/White Striped Top
Brown/Black/White Striped Top: Ugh, I couldn’t find this one either, but here is one other 70s inspired top
Plaid Flannel: I can’t find this exact one, but here is a red, white and blue version that is super cute as well
Aritzia Pieces:
Gray Bodysuit | Black Bodysuit

Hello loves! So it reached over 100 degrees here in New York yesterday and because of that it pretty much feels impossible to wear anything other than a tank top and jeans and super minimal makeup. Because of the intense heat, I came up with a really quick summer makeup routine that makes me feel pulled together but still allows my skin to breathe aka sweat haha. I explained my process below, but if you have any questions at all, please leave them in the comments below and I will get back to you asap! Click here to see more of my YouTube videos!

Products Used In Order:

1. Neutrogena Face Wipes

I LOVE these wipes and always use them when I want to freshen up my face quickly.

2. Eau Thermale Avene / Thermal Spring Water

Lately I have really been into spritzing my face with thermal water to hydrate and cool off my skin after cleansing. It feels so refreshing!

3. This Works Light Time Skin Plump

I just started using this product and love it. It plumps and hydrates, and works well with my sensitive skin.

4. Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer

I heard about this product because everyone was raving about it so I gave it a try. Definitely loving it because of the coconut oil and the way it makes my skin feel. And don’t worry, you don’t have to be hungover to use it. :)

5. Être Belle Cosmetics Golden Skin Roll-on Caviar Eye Gel

I love this eye gel because the rollerball is cool and soothing on my eyes, especially in the morning. Plus it calms my under eye and helps with applying the next product.

6. Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Corrector

This stuff is amazing. When I don’t want to wear a ton of concealer but want to even out my dark under eye circles, it works wonders.

7. Erborian CC Crème

This stuff is great at evening out the slight redness I get on my nose and cheeks. I love how these two products work together to help even out my skin without making me feel like I’m covering my face in a ton of makeup.

8. Bare Minerals Bare Skin Serum Bronzer

I just dab a bit of this on my face to add a bit on color on my face without having to apply powder, bronzer or blush. Works great!

9. The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder Flash Illuminator Fluid Powder & 10. Sephora Collection Pro Featherweight Fan Brush #92

I got this at an event and have been using it ever since. I have also been using it as an alternative for a shimmery eyeshadow, which is really fun. Overall, this product gives off a great glow/sheen and it applies super easily, especially with the #92 brush.

11. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

If you guys have been following me for a while you all know how much I LOVE this mascara. In this video I quickly show the difference between one eye with it on and the other with nothing and it’s like night and day! Also, I wanted to say that I usually skip eyeliner when it’s super hot because I just feel like it’s one more step and I will probably smudge it somehow when I’m sweating down inside the subway.

12. Cover Girl x Katy Perry Lipstick in Cat Call

I have a bunch of her lipsticks (I even met her – she’s super nice!) and really like the colors and how they are easy to apply. This color (Cat Call) is the perfect summer pink!

Hello and happy Wednesday!

Lately I have really been into using my Vitamix to make morning and afternoon smoothies, and today on Instagram I teamed up with Noosa Yoghurt to feature their new Sweet Heat flavors to share how I like to shake up my breakfast routine. I created a smoothie recipe around their Pineapple Habanero flavor and had so much fun creating it, I thought it would be fun to document the process of making it as well.

This smoothie is very filling and slightly higher in calories because of the added coconut milk, so I tend to use it as a breakfast meal replacement after a morning workout. But feel free to alter the ingredients as you see fit and if you are in the mood to add in some more nutrients, I suggest tossing in some greens like spinach or kale.

Mango-Pineapple Habanero Breakfast Smoothie:

Appliance needed:
I use a Vitamix but a NutriBullet works too!

1 8oz tub of Noosa Pineapple Habanero Yoghurt
1 small banana
1/2 cup frozen mango
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
1/2 canned coconut milk

Add a few chunks of frozen pineapple on top for fun!

I hope you enjoyed this and let me know in the comments below if you want me to make more videos like this one.

Hi everyone! Lately, I haven’t been embedding my YouTube videos on the blog, but because I am doing major catch up right now, I wanted to at least share this Get Ready With Me video with you guys in case you wanted to see how I did my makeup on the cruise press trip!

BUT, first off, I want to write a huge DISCLAIMER about something…I had NO idea that the background music would be SO loud! Because I had some issues with the format of this video, it definitely didn’t sound like that when I was editing it, so I apologize if you can’t hear me over the music or if it’s just plain distracting. That was definitely not my intention.

Luckily, it’s a visual breakdown of me getting ready and fairly self-explanatory, so if you would prefer, just turn the sound off! :) You can check out all the products I used, which are linked below and follow along that way if you’d like.

Anyway, thanks for your patience with these silly glitches, but hey you live and you learn right?! :)

Ok, so now onto what this video is actually about! I was lucky enough to go on a press trip with Celebrity Cruises for a week long excursion to the Caribbean.

It was so much fun and I am actually in the midst of editing my travel vlog, which documents the whole trip, so stayed tuned for that to come soon.

The night I created this video, we head up to the very top deck to The Lawn Club Grille for dinner where we proceeded to participate in a pizza making competition! I actually ended up winning with my pepperoni, caramelized onions and mushroom combination! It was SO fun.

Anyway, I guess I just wanted to share how I wore my makeup during the cruise as well as what I wore to that dinner. :) Hope you enjoy, don’t forget to give this video a thumbs up if you liked it, and leave any questions you might have, below! Hugs and happy Friday! xo
