Sometimes I just want to stay home on the weekends and relax, but I don’t want to be Netflixing or YouTubing for the entire day. What to do what to do… Bake something! It’s the season for all baked goods – apple pie, pumpkin pie, gingerbread cookies, chocolate peppermint muffins, you name it! I made some mini apple pies last weekend and thought I’d share them today so you could possibly have a relaxing weekend evening – apple pie & chill. The recipe I used is from Laura in the Kitchen (I love watching her YouTube videos), but I used… View Post

I wanted to write about sample sales in NYC because I didn’t know what to expect when I went to my first one over a year ago.

There are three perks of going to the office. Number 1, free coffee free fruits free hot chocolate free gummy… View Post

I recently saw this video about fake Kylie lip kits gluing people’s lips together and remembered that I had one too, so here we go. I actually purchased my first Kylie lip kit on the streets of New York City in August. A man was selling Urban Decay Naked palettes, Kylie lip kits, and much more, so we thought he was pretty legit. He was selling two lip kits for $25 and we thought we would try them out (I got Mary Jo K). I actually liked it! A couple of weeks later, I purchased her lip kits from kyliecosmetics.com… View Post
