Short & Chic

I am not one to back down on nail art, even when I have super short nails. One of my favourites for short nails is the triangle tape mani. I actually probably prefer it on short nails. This burgundy & gold combo is Zoya Pepper & Zoya Ziv (both new to my collection-thanks Annisa!)

1. 2 Coats of Zoya Pepper
2. Place two pieces of clear tape to form a triangle shape on your nail.
3. Fill in the triangle with Zoya Ziv.
4. Pull off the tape while it's still wet for sharper lines. 
5. Seal with a top coat.

This colour combo is getting me hyped up for fall!

Favourites | July Favourites

I keep wanting to type 'August Favourites', I guess that's what I get for waiting to post this until now. Anyway, back to July favourites. I am keeping it simple this month with lots of repeats.

JewelMint Mystery Box | Wanderlust & Co

I have been loving a lot of pieced on Jewelmint lately. They are so unique and have a lot of trendy pieces at reasonable prices. Not as cheap as Forever 21, but much better quality (typically). $29.99 is a bit of a splurge to me when buying a trendy costume piece, but I have found a few items that I have definitely gotten that use out of and more. Because I have been loving so many things off the site, I thought I would try ordering a mystery box. This mystery box was pieces from Wanderlust & Co. In looking at their collective pieces, I really liked them and though I knew you weren't guaranteed anything seen on the site, I figured I liked the vibe enough to take the risk. Plus, even if you just liked one piece you would get your money's worth. Though pieces are different in all the boxes, and this particular mystery box is sold out, I thought I would share it if you were curious to see what others got or wanted an idea of what the mystery box was all about. I know I googled past boxes to get a sense of the whole idea.

Sorry for the hiatus! I know I gave a bit of warning, but I didn't realize I would be out this long! Following a ten-day vacation with a new full-time job might not have been the best scheduling decision...But I am happy to be back. Stay tuned for July Favourites, a round of empties, and a short nails mani. Plus, anything else I can think of....

Warby Parker | Beacon Collection

Over the weekend, my friend, Vanessa, and I were roaming around Chelsea. We had a girl's afternoon planned of lunch and walking the High Line. We also stopped into the Warby Parker store to check out the frames I had been hearing so much about.

Travel Essentials | Toiletries

I have been frantically preparing for my upcoming flight to Florida. Preston & I (and the cats...) are headed to our hometown for some much needed pool & beach time. Even though, I am rushing, I thought I would share some of my favourite tips & essentials for when it comes to packing my toiletries.

Makeup Look | Metallics & Jeweltones

Even though it's summer, I have been feeling jeweltones and rich metallics. This looks is probably more fall appropriate, but I am loving the combination. I have been thinking about a look like this for awhile, and after watching this video, I was like, "Let's do this!"

Lately, I have been busy, busy. So I just wanted to share some random things I have been obsessed with. A little link love so to speak.

Music Lana Del Rey's Ultraviolence has been on repeat non-stop since its release.
Fitness Every time I have worked-out this week, I do this Blogilate's video. It's intense and is as instant of results as a work-out can get.
Food I seriously made this Vegan Mac & Cheese three times this week. I bet it will happen again too.
Book I just finished The Golem & The Jinni and now I am a good ways in to A Secret History. I am on a reading roll!
TV Rewatching Buffy & Angel. In this order.
Blog Post A lot of things are in the works for me professionally, so this post from Cupcakes & Cashmere couldn't have come at a better time.

I am so excited for the upcoming week. Preston's birthday is this Saturday! Then on the Tuesday we are going to see Neutral Milk Hotel at Celebrate Brooklyn. I could say excited a million times... But wait, there is more....I am headed to my hometown in Florida. I cannot wait to go to the beach and float in the pool! I apologize in advance for the sporadic posts....

Any new obsessions or fun plans?
