My September Beauty Product Favorites


While I did everything I could get into the fall spirit the weather would not let it happen! It was very humid with lots of thunderstorms. I'm beginning to transition to more heavy duty products as the cold front moves in these last few days of the month. Another month without any products to full call out for failing me so let's dive right in to the good:

Quick Beauty Reviews: Erin's Faces & Mario Badescu

Quick Sample Beauty Reviews: Erin's Faces & Mario Badescu
I've been hoarding samples from two brands so thought I'd share quick reviews of them in case you were also interested in trying in any of these products and because I've been slacking on blogging.

For my birthday I treated myself to a facial at Mario Badescu (yes that long ago!). They kindly sent me home with a bag full of beauty samples. I've been slowly working through the samples so here are my thoughts:

Theatre Review: Oh, Hello

I first fell in love with George St. Geegland and Gil Faizon on Nick Kroll's Comedy Central sketch show "Kroll Show" where they hilariously pranked local New Yorkers and big time celebs with Too Much Tuna! They are best friends who have been living together on the Upper West Side for 40 years. They love the theatre and now they're on the biggest stage - Broadway. Oh, Hello is their love letter to not only to the city but also live theater.

My September Birchbox


This month's Birchbox theme was Fresh Fun. "Now that fall is around the corner, we're jumping into multitasking mode - and celebrating the versatile, time-saving products that help us juggle everything on our to-do lists. 'Cause at the end of the day, beauty should make our lives easier (and add a dash of fun)." Here's what I received:

Leanne Marshall Spring 2017 Runway Show


Leanne Marshall is Season 5's Project Runway winner who has a robust bridal business and has been building her Ready-to-Wear line for the last few seasons dressing celebrities on the red carpet. For Spring 2017, the designer seems to have hit her stride this season with a mix of wearable and editorial pieces coming down the runway. She also included an aspect of "See Now, Shop Now" with a few pieces featured on the runway were ready for purchase on her exclusive site.

Katie Gallagher Spring 2017 Presentation


Last week Katie Gallagher showcased her Spring/Summer 2017 collection titled "Eclipse." It was her third all black collection which is an interesting route for Spring since you typically see bright, floral colors. It had a very "Black Swan" vibe to me with a lot of ballet inspired clothing choices from the shoes to the bodysuits.

Weekend Recap: Two Worlds I Don't Know


This weekend I watched two things that centered around worlds I have no idea about. But that is the beauty of art, exposing you to things you may not understand and opening your eyes. Atlanta on FX stars the very talented Donald Glover.

My August Beauty Product Favorites


Finally getting around to wrapping up my favorite August beauty product favorites. My birthday was this month so I got a few beauty presents as I unwrapped on Snapchat. August had some of the hottest days all summer so it was all about controlling the oiliness. Only favorites this month!

Weekend Recap: Strange Things


I was looking forward to a long weekend of unwinding and relaxing. I caught up on the new Netflix craze, Stranger Things. Amazing performances especially from "Eleven" aka Milly Bobby Brown. Glad it got renewed for Season 2 but I'm ready for it! I wish it was a little less scary so my nephews could watch it because it has the vibes of many coming of age '80s movies. It is not what I expected. It had a lot of weird layers but was very enjoyable.
