Product Review: Physician's Formula Butter Highligher

Disclosure: I received complimentary press samples products or services for this post. As always, all opinions are my own. I only ever accept products I truly love or believe in.

One makeup product I've been incredibly picky about is highlighter. It's hard for me to find a highlighter that's in the perfect shade, has the correct amount of pigment (not to bright, not too subtle), and lasts for as long as I want it to. 

5 Tools All Fashionistas Should Have


My mom likes to say that you're clothes are only as nice as long as you take care of them, and I think she's right. Clothing care is important and something that I haven't really seen being talked about all that much in the fashion blogging community. I'm here to tell you about the things I always like to keep on hand for my fashion emergencies.

Leucchtturm 1917 vs. Moleskine


Bullet journaling is my jam and I've tried various notebooks for bullet journaling purposes over the years but the two most popular in the bujo community (that's the real acronym, by the way. Isn't it weird?) are the Moleskine large notebooks and the Leuchtturm1917 notebooks. They're very similar looking and yet a lot of people have very strong preferences for one or the other. I'm here to break down the pros and cons of each and hopefully provide insights and help for those of you who are new to bullet journaling. 

Book Club: So You've Been Publicly Shamed


Jon Ronson has got to be one of my favorite reporters turned authors ever. His books are fascinatingly weird and funny while being incredibly insightful, well-written and entertaining - once I start, I don't stop reading his books until I'm done. Therefore it was with great excitement that  I reached for his book, So You've Been Publicly Shamed.

Photography and Blogging (Vol. 2): Camera Basics


I waited a while before I got my very first DSLR. I started my blog with a small point-and-shoot camera with the conviction that one doesn't need fancy equipment to be a style blogger. I actually still maintain that notion but that said, I happen to love the way my photos turn out with a lens that can give me that fancy blurred background. 
I took my time getting to learn the functions of my point-and-shoot, then learning all the functions of my interchangeable lens camera, and finally my DSLR. 
Full disclosure, I bought my current Canon EOS Rebel T5 from the refurbished section of the Canon website because I found that to be more affordable and less shady than a third party seller. If you have a tight budget, I recommend going the refurbished route as well. Buying fancy equipment is all well and good but unless you know how to use the functions, the camera is kind of wasted. Never fear, I am here to help you learn a couple of the basic functions of your DSLR to help get that perfect photo! There are three things you really need to understand first: Shutter Speed, ISO, and Aperture.
