Fuzzy Lookbook + Furry Friend Tag.

I love my pets so much, so I thought I would do the furry friends tag! Tinkerbell and Taro (TnT) are polar opposites - like Beauty and the Beast or Lady and the Tramp haha. They always make me smile :) I also styled two summer night outfits inspired by them. It has started to get chilly at night, which means one thing, the fuzzy layers can come out of the closet!

A Midsummer Day's Haul.

summer shopping haul
Summer would not be complete without a little shopping. To me, a perfect day is walking through streets and streets of stores, sipping a large iced coffee and stopping to get sushi for lunch (wow I sound really basic.. 0:)). Sadly, I was really disappointed with the lack of quality and variety of clothing available this season. However, I still managed to find a few gems - all miraculously under $40 too ;). Check out what I bought in this try-on haul!

Lazy Guide to Exercise (How to Get Motivated & Started).

lazy guide to exercise
Let's be real. It is insanely hard to start exercising and follow through. There are just some days (or, for me, most days) that you can't be bothered or have absolutely no motivation. However, staying fit and eating healthy is something that we all should do. So, how does a lazy person even begin living a better lifestyle (without having to do much...)? In no way am I an expert on fitness or nutrition, but here is how I got started and what works for me!

Change is Good - From Blonde to Grey Hair.

I changed my hair... again. This time I went darker to a dark brown/grey balayage and cut it shorter! Having a new hair color/ cut is always exciting and sometimes makes you (feel) like a whole new person.

I'm not going to lie- I can't function well without coffee. However, how can you make coffee taste delicious without adding up the calories? Here are some of my lower calorie favorites from Starbucks. If you can drink it black, more power to you!

The Only Colors You Need.

T - SHIRT - FREE PEOPLE  //  SHORTS - FREE PEOPLE 
//  LIP PENCIL - FREE PEOPLE (Whirl)
Despite the never-ending controversy over whether black and white should be considered colors, they are the two staple shades in my wardrobe. I own more white, black, and even white and black pieces than I can count. You can match pretty much anything with these hues, and of course, they work amazing together as well. Here are some of my favorite b/w outfits for every occasion.

Natural is Best.

KABUKI BRUSH - TOO FACED  /  HYDRATING OIL STICK - MILK MAKEUP  /  PREP + PRIME LIP - MAC  / LIP LINER (SPICE) -  MAC  /  AMAZONIAN CLAY BB TINTED MOISTURIZER (LIGHT-MEDIUM) - TARTE  /  LIGHT REFLECTING LOOSE POWDER - NARS   /  LARGER THAN LIFE LONG-WEAR EYELINER (VIA DE'MARTELLI) - NARS   /  NAKED SKIN COLOR CORRECTING FLUID (GREEN) - URBAN DECAY   JUICY SHAKER (PIECE OF CAKE) - LANCĂ”ME  /  BABYDOLL MASCARA - YSL  /  LUNA PLAY- FOREO

I've only been home for a few weeks and I probably already went shopping at least 10 times. So of course I had to stop at Sephora. Your face is your best accessory - I mean, it does go everywhere with you. In the Summer, I prefer wearing less makeup, focusing more on skincare and highlighting what my momma gave me. This is a review of what I purchased on my most recent trips and how I keep my face natural and glowing. (There are bonus pictures of my vanity as well ;))

Transitioning into Adulthood.

(Editorial or looking at a bee above my head?)
I'm 22 and can no longer justify wearing leggings as pants since I'm not dragging my butt to a 9AM class... so what do I wear? The good thing is that I no longer have to try and blend in with people who always wear sweatpants. Graduating from college actually allows me to try more styles out. These are some outfits that I wear on the weekends around San Francisco!
