LOW MAINTENANCE PRODUCTS I'M USING ALL SUMMER LONG

NYC has hit the time of the year where even a minute outside leaves me a sweaty mess. DON'T even ask me how I look after five minutes waiting on the subway platform.... Really though, I sweat very easily in general and now that it's actually humid I'm finding any makeup I attempt to do just kind of slides off. At the moment I'm fairly tan and just looking for products that can help enhance my look to a grade above "just rolled out of bed" and keep my skin/hair healthy and happy. Keep reading to see what I have in my routine now!

LYBB SUMMER: NYC 2019

I love the summer. There's something about New York City summers that's just pure magic, and I think mine started right after graduating college last month. When David took these shots, it was on top of my friend Ben's rooftop in St. Marks. I said there that this was going to be my carefree summer and I really mean it! I'm so ready to enjoy being outside and spend time with the people I care about, all while working during the day doing what I love. These shots are definitely a big time mood!

PRODUCTS I'M LOVING: JUNE 2019

I think it's safe to say we're officially in summertime weather here in NYC! It's so nice to walk down the street in the morning and not have to face freezing cold wind whipping you in the face. Anyways, I shared one of these "products I love" posts a little while back, and after some thought think it will work well as a semi-monthly series. Keep reading for my June favorites!

PERSIAN CAT CARE TIPS

Before my cat, I was never much of an animal person. That all changed in December 2017 when my family decided to adopt our cat, Bala! I love her more than anything in the world and have learned a whole lot about cat care since she's come into our home. Persian cats are VERY high maintenance, so I figure I'd write this post to share my most helpful tips on how to care for them!

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!
