When applying my makeup in the morning, I like to keep my routine as simple and efficient as possible. Most days, I am busy working hard from the moment I wake up until I eventually go to bed at night. Unless I am taking photos or leaving the house for whatever reason, my makeup is always minimal. Since I don’t really go all out with my makeup often, I’m not very familiar with makeup do’s and don’ts. Especially when it comes to makeup brushes. When I received the My Makeup Brush Set in the mail, I was really excited! I love that these oval brushes are easy to use and have very soft, delicate bristles. Also, to make things easier, each brush has a label on it stating what it is for (which is SUPER helpful)! (more…)
Happy Monday! This past year, I have been working really hard to educate myself on this business. Specifically, I have been reading books on fashion, marketing, and business. Coming from a background in psychology and biology, I have taught myself everything that I know about running a blog and resale business. This was not something that came naturally to me so I have had to learn a lot along the way. So although I have learned a thing or two about this blog/resale world, there is always something new to learn. And that is where today’s blog post comes into play. Today, I want to share with you guys 5 of my favorite books and how they have helped me as a blogger and reseller. So here are the 5 books every Girl Boss should read:
Happy New Year everyone! I know that I posted this a little late in the day and I do apologize for that!

Happy Monday! I hope that you all had a great weekend! For today’s post, I wanted to talk about my favorite place in the whole wide world, Italia. For those of you that don’t know, I have some deep roots in this gorgeous country. My family on both sides is from Italy and I identify very strongly with my Italian roots. So much so that I lived there for an entire summer and brushed up on my Italian language skills while I was there (I am bilingual). I try to incorporate my love of Italia into my blog. For example, if you look at the bottom of my blog posts, you will notice that I sign each post with “baci.” (For those of you that don’t know, baci means “kisses” in Italian.) Today, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Italy inspired gifts under $100.
