Back to School for Grown Ups

Back to School for Grown Ups

I’ll be the first to admit I was not a fan of school.  I hated the structure, the social aspect, and especially the mean teachers.  I encourage any young people reading this to stick it out because you’ll be glad you did… but I am certainly thankful that part of my life is over.  I can now get excited about Fall without the anxiety of classrooms.  The ironic thing is, I actually love to learn.  I have a naturally inquisitive mind, and I really do love studying and researching… I just like to do it on my schedule and involving subjects that interest me (some would call that stubborn, and those people would probably be right).   As adults, we  have the freedom to learn what we want when we want.  So if you’re all grown up but want to go back to school without actually having to go back, here are some ideas to get you started… (more…)

Beauty Myth: Does Shaving Really Make Your Hair Grow Back Thicker?

Beauty Myth: Does Shaving Really Make Your Hair Grow Back Thicker?

Since the beginning of time women have been trying to be more beautiful… I have a feeling Eve ate the apple because she thought it would improve her skin.  So over the years it’s only logical that some myths about beauty treatments can develop.  But one myth that has been around forever really drives me crazy: that your hair grows back faster/thicker when you shave it.  Many people believe this.  I’ve heard beauty professionals, YouTube gurus, and even men desperate to protect their hairlines all buy into this myth.  I even knew a guy who was planning to shave his head so he wouldn’t go bald.. and he claimed his veteran hairdresser advised him (I think she probably didn’t like him and found an easy way to stop giving him haircuts, but that’s my own theory).   (more…)

CT Comic-Con at Mohegan Sun, A Comedy Show, & My First Vlog

CT Comic-Con at Mohegan Sun, A Comedy Show, & My First Vlog

I’ve been on YouTube for a while now, and I’ve been having a blast.  It’s a lot of work but it’s always exciting and challenging.  I’ve mostly been posting beauty related videos, which is what i enjoy watching the most.  But I’ve been watching a lot of vlogs lately, and I’ve been wanting to give it a try.  When I found out that I would be performing my stand-up comedy routine at Connecticut ComicConn at Mohegan Sun, I thought that would be the perfect opportunity to do a little film about my weekend.  I was stressed at first (camera problems didn’t help), and it was a little awkward filming in public.  But once I got the hang of it it was really fun!  I definitely want to do more vlogging (vlogmas maybe?).  The only thing is, i was so focused on video that I forgot to take pictures of the weekend.  Next time I’ll try to remember to do both!

Drugstore Glam Pink Blushed Nudes Makeup Tutorial

Maybelline Drugstore Glam Pink Blushed Nudes Makeup Tutorial

I set out to create a Drugstore Glam Pink Blushed Nudes Makeup Tutorial. I’ve have my Maybelline Blushed Nude palette for a while, but I’ve been do distracted by all my Urban Decay palettes that I hadn’t picked it up to use it.  I decided, since glamour doesn’t have to be expensive, why not do a whole makeup look using the Blushed Nudes and all drugstore makeup products.  I’m loving the outcome!  It’s perfect for a Summer (while it lasts) event, or any back to school dances and homecoming that are just around the corner!

Fall 2015 Trend: Silver Grey Glam

Grey Collage

Grey gets me excited.. no I don’t mean 50 Shades of (darn it, I wanted to avoid that cliche, and I didn’t make it past the first sentence).  Anyway, I love all the shades of grey (gray?).  Some people find it drab and dull, but it’s my absolute favorite neutral!  When you’re a fair skinned platinum blonde like me, white can wash you out, and black can seen severe.  But grey always makes my day.  I love it in fashion, makeup, and especially with a little sparkle!  That’s why I was so excited to hear it was a trend for Fall 2015!  Here are some ideas to bring a little more grey into your everyday… (more…)

Some Bloglovin Love

Bloglovin Blog

I decided to enter the Bloglovin Follower contest.  Basically it’s for smaller bloggers, and the top 3 who gain the most followers in the month of August get spotlighted.  I don’t know if I’ll gain enough followers to win, but I think it’s a great way for me to try to build my following either way.  I personally love Bloglovin for keeping up with my favorite blogs.  I check my Bloglovin feed daily, and I follow quite a few blogs… but I wanted to share with you my top 10 favorites… (more…)
