An Honest Glossier Review

Glossier has been name-dropped by my friends and fellow makeup-lovers for a while now. I always loved the beautiful pale pink and white packaging (that’s pretty much my aesthetic, no?) but I never quite got the hype. Well, I was recently given the opportunity to test out some of Glossier’s most popular products and I have to say, I’m very impressed. Read on for my thoughts on some of Glossier’s makeup and skincare! (P.S. you can get 20% off your first order and free shipping on any order $30+ when you shop through my link)

Is GrandeLASH MD Worth It? An Eyelash Serum Review

By now, most of you know my struggles with my eyebrows. I’ve written about semi-permanent tints, microblading and the products I use on a daily basis. But my eyelashes are just as blonde and sparse as my brows. I’ve tried all sorts of mascaras, from drugstore to high-end, and have even had them tinted once or twice. But nothing was ever a real solution – mascaras clumped, looked spidery or didn’t do anything at all and darkening the lashes only lasted a few weeks at best. So I set out to find a serum that wouldn’t cost a ridiculous amount of money and would actually work. Enter: GrandeLASH MD Lash Enhancing Serum.

GrandeLASH MD promises longer, thicker-looking lashes in just three months. The formula includes amino acids, hyaluronic acid, botanical extracts and glycosaminoglycans for strengthening and conditioning. But does it work? Read on to find out how I fared with GrandeLASH MD Lash Enhancing Serum!

How I’m Getting My Financial Life Together

I have a confession to make: I was never good with money. I understood the basic concept of income vs. spending, but I was never any good at saving. My real wake-up call, though, was when I got myself into trouble with my first credit card. It was summer after my senior year and I was finally old enough to get a credit card. The plan was simple: use it once or twice a month on small purchases to build good credit history. But like many young adults, I got in way over my head with spending my “free” money. Thankfully, I’ve since dug myself out of that hole and learned a whole lot more about finances along the way. For example, I now understand how a 401(k) works! But more on that when I start my post-grad career. For now, check out how I’m getting my financial life together!
