The Glossy Life

 

OH, yeah… did I mention I was now a Glossier rep? Probably. No but seriously, I became a Glossier rep at the beginning of this month! Who’d a thought, am I right? If you shop with me, you’ll receive 20% off your first Glossier order, and free shipping over $30.

Watch my Glossier intro video here.

I know I previously posted a piece on my skincare routine but I’ll probably be doing a makeup/skincare video so you can see how I incorporate Glossier products with existing products in my medicine cabinet. Stay tuned!

Refresh Yourself

I once read “find someone who will make your Mondays feel like Fridays” (it may or may not have been off twitter but still very important words here) and I thought “well, why not have drinks on any day that makes it feel like a Friday?” As you can see, my thoughts get real deep sometimes. So now I’m here about to break it down on how I make my own margaritas at home. Also, I may or may not have been tasting for reassurance of a great drink so excuse the typos (just kidding).

Keep in mind that this was created with 1 serving size measurements.

You will need:

1/4 cup of tequila (you can use silver or traditional tequila, it is your choice)

1/4 cup of simple syrup

1 and a half limes freshly squeezed

2 pinches of salt

Mix them all together and pour over a cup full of ice. If it’s a little too sour for your liking, feel free to add more syrup!

If you’d like salt around the rim of your cup, like I do, I would swipe some left over lemon over the rim and tap the top onto a small salt covered plate. Don’t add so much salt that you’re unable to enjoy your drink!

Happy Friday!! Orrrrr whatever day it is, make sure to enjoy yourself as if it is a Friday! Also, enjoy your drink (or two or three– no one is judging you!).

Sidewalks

IMG_7326Transportation in larger cities is a lot more different than, you can drive your car anywhere and always find parking-type-of-cities. A lot of walking was involved in NYC, as well as getting lost on the metro but whatever, so comfort was key. I decided to bring old school Vans and worn-in Levi’s on this trip, boy am I happy I did.

On the way to Egg Shop with Justin (@justinryankim), Marleigh (@marleigh.alexandra), and Branden (@brollish). If you get a chance to try out Egg Shop, you should! I ordered The Beast and it was one of the best pulled pork sandwiches I have ever had.

Beige Life

The Cotton Box Cut T - Everlane | Striped Pencil Jeans - Fossil (sold out online) | Black leather single strap sandals - Bare Traps (Thrifted) | Mini brown faux leather shoulder bag - F21
I've been waiting for Spring time to finally arrive so I could wear my new pair of Fossil denim. Everlane makes my absolute favorite T's so it's no surprise with the pairing there. I've never owned a pair or white bottoms so it was a huge jump for me to get my booty (literally) into white navy blue striped ones. Investing in these babies would be like Scottie P. would say, "NO RAGRETS!"

Winter Survival

If you think I'm one of those people who is super adventurous and up for outings on cold snow days then you should know that you're absolutely wrong! Heck no. I'm more of the type of person that needs to be dug out of a hundred tons of blankets when winter is over with. You think I'm joking, I'm not joking. I got this coat from forever21 during Fall and it was never cold enough to wear before this week, considering it was actually almost 70 degrees last week here in Charlotte. I normally don't shop from forever21, but I have to say, I'm really impressed with them trying to step up the quality of some of their items.
