  • Harper’s Bazaar Glossybox

    This month’s Glossybox is pretty special – it has teamed up with the beauty editor of Harper’s Bazaar for an awesomely curated collection of truly high-end items. There’s a (what looks to be) full size Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics lip tar in an anyone-can-wear dark honey shade that likens itself to Clinique’s Black Honey–it’s vampy in the tube but sheers out to a flattering color on the lips.

    Incandescent: Meeting Joan Rivers

    Several years ago, I wrote about my experience attending a fashion blog conference hosted by Lucky Magazine. I had the overwhelming privilege to spontaneously meet, chat, and receive a hug by the firecracker we know as Joan Rivers. You may not know this (I didn't previously), but Joan was a huge advocate of suicide survivors--a term that describes the people left behind in the wake of a loved one taking their own life.

    August Favorites

    Click here to view my latest YouTube video – my favorite beauty and non-beauty items for the month of August! I had a great time picking this month’s favorites for you guys – definitely a random assortment, heavier on the non-beauty faves this time around. But no fear–next month’s installment promises to be big on the beauty, as I’ve been testing some products out a little more rigorously than usual so I can be absolutely sure they’re up to standard…

    Labor Day Sale Roundup

    Click on the [+] signs above to shop the image, or via the Shop The Post section below Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? In fact, that myth is so widely propagated and taken as gospel, that nobody seems to know where that cardinal rule of fashion originated. I’m here to set the record straight. (For the non-Americans, Labor Day is a national holiday meant to celebrate the workforce of our nation, the backbone of our economy.)

    Beauty Recs with Sally Beauty

    In my last Sally Beauty post, I offered my custom beauty consultation services to one winner–and that winner was the lovely Elizabeth. My spending limit was $45 so I opted to multitask items: several eyeshadows (suited to her eye color) in one, as well as a gorgeous blush/bronzer combo. I’m loving the “nude everything” trend these days so of course a dusty rose nail color was in order, as was a nude lip pencil. Plus, through the rest of August,…

    Kylie Jenner Lip Tutorial

    Hey guys! Today I’m going to share with you how to make your lips look bigger–while Kylie Jenner may have had a lil work done *cough*, it’s no secret that she piles on the mauve lip liner these days, 90’s style. I’m actually a huge fan of mauve-y, dusty rose-colored lips. I think they look natural and enhance your lip shape without being showy or high-maintenance.

    My Stay, Shop, Sparkle Experience in Dallas

    Hi friends! Today I’m going to share a vlog and a contest with you regarding my two night stay at the Hyatt Regency Dallas which included a shopping trip at the famed Northpark Shopping Center in town. The Hyatt Regency and Northpark mall invited my husband and I to come out and sample their “Stay. Shop. Sparkle.” package — and with a name like that, who could resist?

    Back to School/Work Bag Basics

    Hello friends, and Happy Friday to you all. Today I’m super excited to share my rendition of a “back to school” video – essentials for your school/work bag! Now, I’m a “far beyond” graduate: the perpetual student. I’ve endured primary school, middle school, four years of high school, four years of college, four years of medical school, and I’m working on my last four years of residency training (only 1.8 more years to go, baby!). While I’m not going to…
