So imagine that for one flat monthly fee you could have a current, rotating wardrobe that could take you from day to night, work to drinks, and weekdays to weekends. That's where Le Tote comes in! My wardrobe was in need of some massive updating, so when Le Tote contacted me about trying their fashion subscription service, saying yes was a no-brainer. Is your closet in need of a revamp?

The Netflix Tag


I admit it. I'm obsessed with Netflix. There is not a day that goes by that I don't spend a little time browsing through the new titles, lazily adding interesting movies and series to my already over-stuffed queue. And I'm also no stranger to the Netflix binge. If I were to add up all the hours spent streaming season after season of over-dramatic teen shows or the countless indie horror movies I can't get enough of, I'd probably be more than a little horrified.

But life is too short for that kind of self-shaming, so instead I thought I'd celebrate one of my vices in the form of The Netflix Tag. If you're a fellow streaming obsessive, this is the post for you (and don't forget to pop on your fave Netflix show for proper background noise!).

Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm - Review


Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm, $68.00
Aging in an inescapable fact of life. Now that I'm rapidly closing in on 30, I'm becoming even more acutely aware of this. Where once stood a child, there is now a fully-fledged woman staring back at me in the mirror, and I admit I've had a number of mini-meltdowns at the idea of my youth coming to a close. And while genetics, science, and nutrition have helped to keep women looking younger for longer, the truth is that there is nothing that can truly halt the process.

However, there are some products on the market that claim to be able to buy us a little more time to revel in our glory days. Many of these magic potions are more hype than miracle, but occasionally you stumble across a true anti-aging gem that seems to turn back the hands of time. Today's offering from Algenist is one such magical time-turner.

Antica Farmacista Damascena Rose, Orris and Oud Diffuser - Review

Antica Farmacista Damascena Rose, Orris and Oud Diffuser, $26.00-$94.00

Disclaimer: This post contains products sent to me by a brand or PR company in exchange for a review. However, all words and opinions are my own, as always.

Typically when you think of winter-esque scents, floral fragrances aren't the first thing that comes to mind. Winter scenes usually conjure up visions of sparkling snow, crackling fireplaces, warm kitchen spices, and delectable baked goods rising in the oven. And while I burn many a candle and melt many a wax that fills my home with the scent of a snowy day or a quiet bakery, I find that there is no fragrance more beautiful than that of winter roses. So when Antica Farmacista tapped me to fill my own home with the stylings of their Damascena Rose, Orris and Oud Diffuser, I couldn't allow this chance to indulge in one of my flowery vices to pass me by.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick | Thin Lizzy - Review + Swatch


Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick | Thin Lizzy, $21.00
With the holidays firmly behind us now, it can be easy to forget that winter has only just begun. Jumping into the new year encourages us to begin to look forward to the coming of spring, full of it's gorgeous, bright hues. However, the reality is that we have several frozen months ahead of us before we can get there, so it's not the time quite yet to pack away our vampiest shades. One such vampy lipstick that I've been obsessively reaching for this winter is Kat Von D's Studded Kiss Lipstick in Thin Lizzy, and I'll admit that when spring does finally roll around it will be painfully hard to part with this stunner.

My 2016 Resolutions


Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome to 2016! I hope that 2015 treated each of you kindly and that you're ready to jump into 2016 with arms wide open. One of my favorite things about the start of a shiny, new year is that it gives each of us a chance to wipe the slate clean, and it truly feels like anything is possible. Cheesy, but true. Now, I know that some people feel that resolutions are a waste of time and a little obnoxious, but I enjoy having a small list of goals to help point my inner compass for the year. 2015 saw me propelled forward in so many aspects of my life, and I'm hoping to keep the momentum going in 2016 for a fantastic year. So here are the resolutions I want to work towards personally, health-wise, financially, and blog-wise this year.
