Box Braids – Third Time’s the Charm

I’ve gotten box braids with extensions done three times now. The first time I got the style installed was in North Carolina. The stylist made the braids skinnier than I anticipated and used *gasp* 20 packets of hair! I loved the results of this first experience. The hair was not too itchy and the quality…

Surprise Gift 🎉

I’ve received L’Occitane Aqua gel face wash and lotion as a gift. I’ve used these products for a few days now and can confirm they’re fantastic! The face cream feels like a splash of water on the skin. I’m thankful to have the face wash gel in my skin care regimen because its gentle. Given that…

Favorite Skincare Products

I love skincare! It’s the one thing I always feel a-okay spending a bunch of money on. I have pictured above some of my most used products. Sokoglam is my most frequented online Korean skin care store. The Triple C Lightning Liquid is the only product I’ve used that completely gets rid of pigmentation. Its…

Winter Ice, Ice…Rebecca Minkoff bag and phone case review

Christmas came early?! I feel extra icey now that I’ve gotten my navy and silver accessories from Rebecca Minkoff. I think navy is a great colour because it works all year long. It works in the winter with sliver/glitter looks and in the summer with tan or neutral outfits. I got this small navy crossbody…

Fall Outfits

Fall is almost over 😢, so it’s time to listen to holiday music and look forward to winter! The coat was a steal, super warm and only amounted to about 30 euros! ❤ 

Fish and Chips Review Series: Part One

This fish and chips series will include reviews of fish and chips restaurants at various price points and locations. I love fish and chips when its done well, and Leo Burdocks at 4 Crown Alley, Temple Bar, Dublin do just that. True, Temple Bar is a tourist area, but the building is so picture-ready! That location’s…

Rebecca Minkoff Tote Bag & Wallet Review

I think the Rebecca Minkoff Washed Nylon Tote and Becky Continental Wallet are amazing choices for any graduate student! I purchased the tote because it has a zipper, and can expand at the sides. I also love the bag’s nylon fabric. It makes it easy to clean. I adore the fact that the bag is…

My Long Term Travel Luggage Packing

When it comes to airport travel, I’ve been aboard the struggle bus for many years. Mainly, because of inexpensive and overweight luggage. 😦 I’ve always dreamed of worry free long distance travel with luggage packed thoughtfully under the 50 lb weight limit. Throughout my high school years I traveled from state to state following my family’s…

Iceland = Price-land?

Iceland was a bucket list travel destination I’ve longed to visit for about 6 years. I finally was able to go with my mother as a college graduation trip May 2018. Did it live up to my expectations? Yes! Was it expensive? Very! The nickname the locals joke about rings true, Iceland is “Price-land$$$”, but…
