Drugstore Beauty Reviews

Drugstore Beauty Reviews
I've been lagging on my beauty reviews but I only have one face so there's only so much I can review at a time. Some of these items I've had for awhile and have been meaning to try, others I've been using and been meaning to share my thoughts. Hopefully you find something useful. So let's get to it, shall we?

Gone to Chicago

Today I'm flying to Chicago for my first ever trip! I'll be joined by my sister so I'm super excited to have this sister getaway with her. It's been a very long time since I've traveled besides visiting family in California and Chicago has been on my bucket list for awhile now. Hopefully I'll be meeting up with some bloggers I know there. I return Thursday so try not to miss me too much.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram to keep up with my adventures!

My August Beauty Product Favorites (And Not So Favorite)

Another month, another list of favorites! Some of these you may already have seen me raving about on Instagram but others I've forgotten to share. Here's a round-up of the products I've enjoyed and not so much enjoyed using this month:

Book Review: Aziz Ansari's "Modern Romance"

Yey Kim finally finished a book! There were many reasons I wanted to read Aziz Ansari's "Modern Romance" but mostly because it touches on topics I discussed in Dating Girl. He also collaborated with Eric Klinenberg, the author of "Going Solo", which I quite enjoyed so it is a very well researched book. He starts off by interviewing senior citizens and hearing about their love stories. It was so crazy to hear how most people met the person they'd be with for 50+ years because he was a boy who lived across the street or they lived in the same building. Proximity was definitely key.

What to Visit in Chicago?

Next week I'm headed to Chicago with my sister for our first trip EVER. So excited! We have some things on the agenda such as a Cubs game but would love your opinions on what is a must see especially for our first time there. I'd also love to hear some recommendations for vegan restaurants (if you have them).

What's a must see in Chicago?

#ManiMonday: Back-to-School

Now that I'm done with grad school... no more back to school shopping for me. Womp womp. I truly love back to school shopping - the smell of fresh paper, new pens, post-its!

What to Pack for a Picnic

When you think of summer you think of many things - sunshine, putting your toes in the sand and picnics. Although summer is wrapping up the weather is still very warm on the East Coast. It's still the perfect time to pack your lunch and eat outside with your own little picnic. I'm all about going outside during your lunch break just to take a break from the office and recharge your mind.  Here's what I like to pack:

Movie Reviews: Straight Outta Compton & Sneakerheadz

Straight Outta Compton - I was pretty damn excited to see this movie. You may have seen my own "Straight Outta Somewhere" poster on Instagram. I'm an East Coast girl who grew up with West Coast hip hop because when I was 12 my family moved from New Jersey to California. So I could not wait to see this!

Birthday Sephora Haul + Reviews

I pretty much asked everyone for a Sephora gift card for my birthday and thankfully ended up with THREE! I had a long list growing and took full advantage. I've been going through a breakout so it's been taking me awhile to review all the products I purchased. Wanted to try them a few times before posting a review. Let's run through these, shall we?

Weekend Recap: Egyptian Tombs, Pirates, Oh My!

Another eventful weekend in the books ladies and gentlemen. My former roommate from LA, Jen, was in town. She now lives in the Philippines so it's nice when I do get to see her. She came in Friday morning and then we headed out to the MET. We checked out the costume exhibit "China: Through the Looking Glass" which was beautiful. I highly recommend it as it has been extended into September. Although be warned of the crowds. The MET is just also great to wander, we kept getting lost but finding new exhibits.
