UO ON YOU: LILAC DREAMS

What a treat these spring weeks are! Even though we've been getting hit a little heavy with rain in the city, that's nothing compared to how FREEZING cold it's been these past few months. For the past two years now I've really slowed down on buying clothing like I used to. In my freshman year of college I worked at the Urban Outfitters on 14th and 6th and used to go CRAZY with my employee discount. Coincidentally, one of my most recent investments is this beautiful lilac faux leather jacket from Urban, which has quickly become my go-to for the season. I sported this out on my most recent shoot with my friend Diego, keep reading to see all the best shots!

MY UPDATED SKINCARE ROUTINE

This year has been FLYING by! A little while ago, one of my classmates dm'd me on Instagram asking about my skincare routine. When I sent over my last blog post on my full skincare routine to her, I realized it's time for an update! I'm constantly trying new products and so my skincare routine changes a lot, but there are a few things that are too good to stray from. Keep reading for my breakdown!

CONEY ISLAND X THEPHOTOPLUG RECAP

A couple of weekends ago I woke up on a Saturday morning to a text from one of my close friends (and very talented photographer) Miguel asking me if I was going to the Coney Island photo meetup happening later that day. I didn't have anything planned, so I said sure! The meetup, hosted by Instagram's @thephotoplug, was lowkey and actually ended up being one of my favorite meetups ever. I had the chance to meet some great people, and also received some great pictures! Keep reading to see all my favorite shots.

LIFE AFTER COLLEGE: 4 MONTHS OUT

Hello everybody! I haven't done a post like this in a very long time... but here it is! This is part self-reflection and part advice column rolled into one. Many people still don't know that I graduated a semester early from college, so last December I had my last day of undergraduate classes. Since then, It's been a whirlwind of full time work (in a six month internship program) and learning to get into a new routine that lacks the structure of class/schoolwork. Keep reading for my biggest lessons so far!

NEW BEAUTY PRODUCTS I'M LOVING

As you've been able to see over the years on this blog, I accumulate A LOT of beauty products. What started out as me spending all the money I saved working summer jobs during high school at Target and my local drugstores has THANKFULLY turned into being in a place where I can get some for free. The rest I strategically buy using coupons and sales. Now that I'm officially working in the beauty industry, my love for finding new products and sharing them on here is becoming an even bigger part of my life! Keep reading below for a breakdown of some new products I've recently started using that I'm really digging!

NYC POPXLOVE RECAP

FINALLY, after a month I'm getting to share these pictures from the Pursuit of Portraits POPXLOVE meetup. I have a love/hate relationship with photography meetups; but, I always find that the reason I keep coming out is I love getting to see all the people I interact with within the community on social media in real life. This meetup, while I was FREEZING the whole time, was no different. Keep reading for my little recap and for some of my favorite shots of the day!

I'm telling a tale of caution today on the blog. Just a day or two before this past New Year's, I had the absolute WORST breakout I've ever had and it was definitely my fault. I don't have pictures because I didn't think to take any, but I'm sharing how I finally got over it right here right now!

MY FACE MASK ROUTINES

Giving the people what they want to read, all my different face mask routines! I put a poll on my Instagram story recently asking who would want to read about the different face masks I use. The response was really positive, and so here I am writing this thing! In the past two years, my interest has taken a big shift from makeup to skincare. Face masks are a big part of my skincare routine, and I'm really glad that other people are interested in learning more about that. Keep reading to see my winning combination of masks (because some I use in a row) and what they're best used for.
