September's Beauty Hits & Misses

Just a few of September's hits and misses. Some of these products worked or didn't work for me. Every product is different on different skin. I have combination skin; oily in the t-zone and dry skin. Just because I didn't love a certain product doesn't mean it doesn't work for you!


Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Tan

What can you not love about this beautiful bronzer. Has the perfect tone of brown because it's not too warm, ashy or orangey! This bronzer goes on super smooth on the skin and you can get a lot of product from just a simple swatch. The slim packaging is a major plus along with the great big mirror.

Benefit Galifornia Blush

It's impossible to get enough of this product! The color is a stunning coral sheen and it is not (I REPEAT) not an intense color. Galifornia blush has a great smell and a nice buildable formula. It also adds a touch of glow to the skin!

Natasha Denona Sunset Palette

One of my most expensive prized possessions ever ever ever ever. I love Natasha Denona forever and always. Her Sunset Palette comes with every beautiful warm tone shade that goes on perfect for every skin tone. The colors are super pigmented and there is a variety of shimmers and matte colors that blend out so easily. Natasha Denona never disappoints.


Catrice liquid camouflage high coverage concealer

Not my favorite at all. This concealer has a dewy feel throughout the day and can cause your skin to get oily. I had to even put my go-to concealer (Tarte: Shape Tape Concealer) to cover up my dark circles because the Catrice concealer would just not say on. Also, this concealer is not waterproof and has an intense smell. Definitely not my favorite.

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish

Did not meet my expectations whatsoever. There was no tingly feeling, or plumpy lips. The color is also sheer so you must put a lipstick underneath the gloss.

Two Faced: Better Than Sex Mascara

What a shocking disappointment! Everyone raves about this mascara but I can't see why. The formula just causes my eyelashes to clump together and it did not volumize them either. Throughout the day there were a lot of flakes on my cheeks because the mascara would not hold up. I am still disappointed.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
