Listen Up: My Favorite Podcasts

By | December 12th, 2018|#trending, pop culture, uncolored reviews|

Before I started commuting from Connecticut to New York every day, I did not understand the whole podcast thing. Whenever I tried listening to one, I found myself focusing in on the host’s voice and, frankly, letting it bug me to death. For those of you that have heard me speak, you’re probably rolling your [...]

Oui ou Non? My Guide to Paris

By | December 8th, 2018|broke girl's budget, to do list, wise words|

I’ve been talking about going to Paris for the last couple of years, but for one reason or another it never worked out. I had been with my family as a kid, but I was too young to fully appreciate it. Earlier this fall, I finally said YOLO! I asked my best friend from home, [...]

By | June 30th, 2018|make-up shake-up, uncolored reviews|

This post is sponsored by Clarisonic and Her Campus Media. A few weeks ago, I opened the mirrored cabinet in my bathroom. I reached for my acne spot-treatment, accidentally knocking over my age-preventing moisturizer. It felt like some sort of sick joke.

"She has a way with words, red lipstick and making an entrance." - Kate Spade The first time I read that quote, I thought to myself, "that was written for me." In fact, I find myself thinking that almost every time I read a Kate Spade-ism. The brand has always seemed to "get" me—my style, [...]
