Modern Retro- 70s Vibes

Style | August 18, 2017

Processed with VSCO with a10 preset

We all know trends come and go, but one that is sure to make its way back, time after time, is Modern Retro! I’m talking tassels, earth tones, and crazy prints!

The 70s had a lot of memorable moments, but the fashion was on another level! It was all about effortless vibes with a vibrant twist we still adore to this day. I love this multicolored Ronny Kobo dress I wore in Miami! The colors just scream retro, and I love the details on the knit. I styled the dress with my go-to Chloe bag, Saint Laurent shades, and wedges. …

With Fall just around the corner, I wanted to round up some of my favorites lip shades that are perfect for the cozy season ahead! I don’t know about you guys, but forget the diamonds – endless lipsticks and glosses are a girl’s best friend. Let’s face it, you can never have too many. 😉

It’s so easy to take any look to the next level with a pop of color on the lips. One of my go-to looks is a simple cat eye paired with a dark, rich lip color. For fall, I gravitate towards shades like deep orange, …

My Visit to Instagram Headquarters

Lifestyle | July 12, 2017

Yesterday I took a little field trip down to the Instagram headquarters in Culver City. You’re probably wondering how in the world I was able to do this? My management team got us in touch with our contact over there who helped us set up a meeting to come in, explore, and sit with someone to get some Insta-tips. I’ve been looking forward to this visit for a while because I had tons of questions I wanted to ask them!

Facebook obviously owns Instagram so when we arrived into the Facebook building, the first thing that drew my attention was …

Hi guys! I recently chopped my hair off because it was becoming dull, dry and damaged. I knew that having shorter hair meant changing up my haircare routine. So lately I’ve been switching it up, and I’m not just talking about my different hairstyles… 😉

I’m so excited to announce that I’ve partnered with Kérastase, a brand that I love, to share some of their new products that are serious game changers. I got the inside scoop on products launching later this year that literally had me saying WOW. I can’t wait to try them and share my honest review …

I read an article this morning that said Instagram has over 600 million active users a month and over 400 million active users DAILY. My mouth dropped! Can we flash back for a second. Do you remember your first Instagram post? For me, that was over 4,000 photos ago and back in 2011 when frames and filters were all the rage. I’ve definitely gone back and cleaned up my profile since then so I really can’t remember my first post! #slightlybummed

This might sound funny but I can’t imagine my life without Instagram today. It’s been a mega platform that …

Since posting this photo on my Instagram, I’ve been getting tons of questions about my sister’s wedding makeup I did on her! I’m really happy with the way it turned out. I thought it might be helpful to break down the look with some helpful tips and tricks that are especially great for any future brides out there.

Note: I’m self-taught, so imagine the look on my face when my sister asked me to do her wedding makeup. I was so nervous (Snapchat fam knows!) because I’m only used to doing my own makeup. When it comes to matching other …

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of HASHTAGS and SOCIAL MEDIA. I was 15 when I created a XANGA page. (who remembers that!!!??) Shortly after that, I jumped on to Myspace (top 8 what’s up!!) and then Facebook. Fast forward to 2010 – I’m in college and suddenly obsessed with this “Instagram” app.

Remember the days when social media was just a communication tool for us to quickly connect with family and friends across the globe? Having a social media presence in 2017 is one thing, but strategically marketing your …
