Upgrade Your Summer Makeup

I get so heated when I leave the house in the summer with my makeup looking fresh, only to get to my destination looking less like a magical mermaid and more like a scary swamp lady…The reality is if you choose to waste your time contouring your face you will look like you have fallen face first into the mud by the end of the day. Don’t get makeup battle wounds. The summer sun will ALWAYS win in the end.

Wearing waterproof makeup in the summer can help you go about your day without reapplying or being surprised when you look in the mirror later on. However, take full advantage of these few months by embracing your natural glow and freckles. You look healthier, not to mention younger, when you don’t conceal and cover up your skin. Use minimal makeup to enhance what you already have.

The Summer Smooch

When it comes to my beauty secrets, I will always kiss and tell. Lip-gloss is a powerful weapon; a wand that can help you seduce, shine, and ultimately feel fabulous. A light gloss is all you need for a trip to the beach or those lazy summer days. I have to admit, I’m not a huge lip-gloss or lipstick girl but when I do take the time to apply, I feel a little more sexy and vibrant. Just a little bit and you’re ready to sparkle and shine this summer!

After graduation I went on a Post-grad Glamaway. The following summer I enjoyed a simple staycation while Biking and Hiking with a summer love, and last August, I traveled to Vegas for Magic Market Week. Now, other than the daily Commute into NYC or some Trendy Transportation, I haven’t had much time to experience new adventures.   macroon map

Flashy Flash Drives

It’s Cinco De Mayo and right now you probably have only two things on your mind: tequila and guacamole. If you’re like me, I’m sure you can’t wait till the clock hits 5 and you can prance out the door with your invisible sombrero on. Unfortunately, we’re all still here…working and waiting.Wino at work

Sometimes at the end of the day when I have lost that caffeine kick that has sustained me throughout the afternoon, I might just lose my train of thought. I am sure we’ve all had a delirious moment when we forget to save our work. Now, I ALWAYS make sure I save everything; how could I forget when I am using a fancy USB.
