I’ve been following him for about a year now… seeing his work and the many gorgeous looks he creates on top celebs…. Read more »

Guilty as charged! But the number of applications increases as the temperature decreases, which is why I just had to blog about my favorite picks to moisturize, hydrate and… Read more »

Life has gotten a little sweeter since welcoming our little bundle of puppy joy into the family. Aidan has definitely been keeping me on my toes and away from the keyboard! He just loves playing fetch, teething on his chew toys (and sometimes fingers), and with the consistent NY snow storms the past few weeks, loves bolting back & forth and running around and around in the wet snow. But my cuddle bug is getting big FAST (as you can… Read more »

Naturally, there was no hesitation in my voice when shouting ‘YES!’… Read more »

I am totally new to the whole concept of the makeup ‘palette’ as of lately and I happen to be enjoying every single minute of it so far! Having multiple… Read more »
