April Ipsy Glam Bag

I know it's been a while since I last wrote a post and I sincerely apologize. Life got in the way as usual and I couldn't find the time to blog. I can't guarantee that I'll be back on a regular schedule since I'm graduating soon and finals are just around the corner, but I will try my best. Now let's get on to what this post is actually about.
My April Ipsy Glam Bag arrived while I was away in Spain and I couldn't have been more excited to see it waiting for me in my mailbox when I got back. I opened it right away and was instantly intrigued when I saw that it had a rock star theme. I thought smokey eyes and glitter, but what I found inside was all that and more.

DEDICATED: Warby Parker's Spectrum Sun Collection

I'm super excited to have been contacted by a representative at Warby Parker to help announce the new Warby Parker Spectrum Sun Collection which launched today Tuesday, March 18th at 9AM EST on their website and in stores!
Here's some of my favs:
Downing Striped Sassafras 

 Hall Whiskey Tortoise

Minnie Striped Sassafras
I'm a sucker for sunglasses, which is evidenced by my rather large collection and I'm thinking about dropping by the Warby Parker store to try these on in person. I'm leaning toward the Downing frame at the moment since they kind of remind me of the Ray-Ban club masters with a bit more of a cat-eye flair.

February Favorites (Beauty, Home Goods & Gaming!)

It's been rather gloomy these days but there was finally enough sunlight for me to film my February Favorites. This favorites video is a little different from my prior ones in that I'll be sharing some non-beauty favorites as well!

Review: Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream


I don't sleep.

Alright, I'll be a little less dramatic. I don't sleep as much as I should, and because of that my skin suffers. I have dark circles under my eyes and puffiness 24/7. Though I'm certain that getting more sleep would be much more effective than an eye cream, I'm in my last semester of college, interning part time and looking for a job, so sleep is going to have to wait.

Review: Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil


I've always been interested in incorporating a face oil into my routine but face oils can be just as terrifying as they are alluring. When the word 'oil' pops up into my head I immediately imagine grease and shine, two looks I'm definitely not going for when it comes to my face. However, after watching a few videos, specifically POPSUGAR Beauty's "Why Face Oils Benefit Any Skin Type, Even Oily" and Jaclyn Hill's "Favorite Skincare Products of 2013," and doing my own research I was sold.

What I learned about face oils is that they truly can benefit any skin type. Yes, even oily. How does that even make sense? Often times, skin becomes oily because it's dehydrated and as a response your skin end up over-producing oil. In a sense, by using face oils you are training your skin to stop over-producing and to begin producing oil at a normal rate. If you have normal or dry skin, a face oil will help to hydrate it and in most cases even better than your typical face moisturizer.
