Currently...(Vol. 42)

I haven't done a 'Currently' post in about a month! April has been a crazy busy month and while it doesn't seem like it will be slowing down anytime soon I'm ready to at least take a few minutes for myself and get this post out for you guys. 
Work has been busy (what else is new?) but I also dealt with a bit of an emotional heaviness this week. I don't know how closely you guys follow Youtube news but I recently found out about a Youtuber who (as a "prank") appeared to emotionally verbally, and at times physically abuse his children. I don't want to link to the channel and bring in more attention to them but watching the kids being put through a lot of emotional trauma reminded me of some of the heavier things in my past. I don't want to talk about what I went through here in my blog but I do want give everyone who has ever been put through abuse of any kind a big virtual hug. You are loved and no one deserves to be abused. 
Now that that's done, here are some of the things that I've been enjoying:

#MyPerfectWorld with Origins | Magenta Heels and Camel Coat

Top: H&M sweater (similar here) || Coat: Zara (similar here) || Bottoms: H&M jeans ||Accessories: Loft sunglasses, Zara bag (similar here), Kate Spade necklace (similar here) || Shoes: Zara (similar here)

I recently attended an event sponsored by Influenster and Origins for their #MyPerfectWorld event. The closest event location to me was in Clarendon so Brian and I hopped on the metro and made our way to see what would make our perfect world. 
Before I go into the event coverage, I want to do a mini review of some of the products I was sent by Influenster. I was given five sample products from Origins' skincare lines for review. While I was given these products for free, all of the below reviews are my own opinions.

Formal Event Makeup Picks

I fell a bit behind in my blogging schedule and I meant to have this post up a lot sooner (sorry!) This is all about the makeup I wore to New York Fashion Week but honestly, this is a look that would work for a lot of different formal occasions. I made sure to pack my very favorites and I'd like the share them with you.
