In Defense Of The Carrie Diaries From A Skeptic

Carrie loses her mother, her friends lose their virginity and they all lose their ability to perceive the world naively any longer; they must reconcile that the decisions they make will ultimately decide the people they become.

Reviewing the Burberry Complete Eye Palette [In Our Makeup Bag]

Burberry eyeshadows are something of legend in beauty circles. The creamiest, most pigmented and blendable shadows some say! I've never indulged in one, but was excited to hear that they were finally making eyeshadows palettes.

Reviewing Clarins Lotus Oil Face Treatment [In Our Makeup Bag]

Skincare is an overlooked part of many makeup junkies beauty routines and that needs to change! It doesn't matter how much makeup you're slathering on; if your skin isn't good, it will still show through.

Deborah Lippmann “Mermaid’s Dream” Nail Polish [In Our Makeup Bag]

When I saw one of her summer 2012 releases, Mermaid's Dream, I fell hard. I'm a sucker for turquoise shades, but the glitter and shimmer just throw this one over the edge for me!

How to Make 1 Shirt Work for 5 Outfits

I’ve been all about the lace lately. Lace shorts, blazers and even accessories, you name it, and I’ve probably lusted after it. Needless to say, I was pretty excited when I received this ultra feminine lace top from Ella + Cathy to review for CollegeCandy.

Weekly Wrap Up: Springtime is Making Me Giddy

It is that time of year folks; time to dig out your flippy floppies, cut-offs and prance off to class in a spring air bliss. Seriously, this time of year makes me feel like writing poetry, listening to Bon Jovi , and sparking up conversation with the campus squirrels. Yep, spring makes me so beyond happy, it is borderline frightening

CC Beauty Live: Indulge In Soap And Glory

Normally, I don't get really hyped up about drugstore brands because they don't meet my high beauty standards. But I guess it's true that there's a first for everything because I've got a new drugstore obsession: Soap And Glory. The pink vintage packaging caught my eye at Target a few weeks ago, and I've been in love ever since.

Body Blog: Physique 57, My Secret Workout Weapon

It was hard not to notice Kelly Ripa whip herself into the best shape of her life almost instantly two years ago. She had always looked good, but suddenly her body looked insane. In a good way. I wanted to know her secrets. I longed for the formula to her suddenly sculpted arms and her six pack abs.

Saturday Read: Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

I had seen a few advance reviews for "Beautiful Creatures" by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl, all of which raved about the novel, so I went into it with pretty high expectations. On top of that, it's one of the few books ever to be selected as a "Heather's Pick" at Chapters/Indigo (Canadian Barnes & Noble basically).

Weekly Wrap Up: Missing Middle School

It has been a week of reminiscing for me. It seemed as though everywhere I looked there was something that reminded me of the happier days of my childhood.

The Weekly Wrap Up: Goodbye MJ, Hellooo Weird People

Summer sure is flying by. As mid-July approaches, we have to start planning for the year ahead, whether that means going back to school in August, looking for an apartment, searching for a job, etc. But before we go there, we still got a couple of months left to enjoy the heat!

Weekly Wrap Up: No Swine Flu Here!

It's been a tough week, but we survived it without catching the swine flu! That's probably because we used that pandemic as the perfect excuse to skip class and spend the day doing more productive things (and avoiding strangers' sneezes): we learned som new make up techniques, hit up Forever 21, and watched lots of TV.

Weekly Wrap Up: Best Week Ever!

This week may have been the best week ever. For starters, people celebrated 4/20 on Monday. Tuesday (probably the best day ever) was both Iced Coffee Day at Dunkin Donuts® AND Free Scoop Day at Ben and Jerry’s®. Plus, on Wednesday, we celebrated Earth Day!

The Weekly Wrap Up: Lame on Friday Night

Fridays kill me. On the one hand I want nothing more than to head to the bar to drink away another long week (and simultaneously avoid creepers), but then I'm so tired I can barely get off the couch.

Weekly Wrap Up: At Least There is No Steam Coming Out of Our Vajay.

OMG. We are so. effing. tired. What a freaking week. Somehow we managed to stay up way too late every night and we still feel like we accomplished nothing. Maybe that's because we're women and we are never satisfied. Or maybe it's because between consuming large quantities of the best snack ever and trying some new ways to get healthy, we didn't have time for the important stuff.
