Healthy Hacks

I love trying new restaurants, eating new foods, and on occasion am a terrible snacker… with a huge sweet tooth. As much as I would consider myself to be (or to have recently become) a huge foodie, I also care about the type of food I am eating. I aim to have a healthy lifestyle of working out and eating right but, as any college student/ any person in general knows, it becomes less easy as you get more busy. So, finally, I have developed a few ‘healthy hacks’ that help me stay on track ( and have the energy) to lead a healthy and busy life.

Wear For Where: Orange County

Wear For Where: Orange County

California is a place that has become a second home. I have relatives all along the coast, a brother who attends USC, and 3 consecutive months of exploring last summer, that have promoted me from the title of “tourist” to “honorary local” (in my opinion 😉 )!! During my 3 month exploration I divided my time between Los Angeles, where I interned, and Orange County, where one of my aunts lives. This area of southern California is composed of many beach (and near-the-beach towns) that span along PCH. My aunt lives in Huntington Beach, where a change of OC scenery is no more than a short drive South. So, from my many days spent on the ‘Golden West Coast’, I have created a list of must-see destinations and the outfits you should wear while you’re there!

Enjoy! Xo

Inside My Makeup Bag

When it comes to makeup, I’ve always been a little boring… maybe even a “creature of habit”. I have fair skin, freckles and blue eyes, so my main concerns are evening my skin tone (without hiding my freckles) and adding the appearance of  a tan to make my eyes pop. I really love to have outfits that make a statement…so my makeup routine tends to fall low (in terms of priority).

Today, lucky for me, a natural face has turned into a trend, making my simple routine not seem out of the ordinary.  Here is a look into my makeup bag, filled with my go-to products!

June Picks

I find it very difficult not to look towards the future and buy for what I want to wear in June (the first day of summer is June 21st, after all). June is the first time it feels that summer will stay, versus the indecisive weather in the months leading up.

This summer I will be spending my time in New York, interning for a company in SoHo. New York summers draw a much different feeling than other seasons spent in the city, there is still a need for a “Cool Chicness” but, girly and light pieces are able to share the spotlight.
