Wait, What? I Have ADHD?

Sometimes curve balls are thrown your way. Other times, you see the ball the coming straight to you, but it's still shocking when it lands in your glove. The latter is the case for when my psychiatrist said "Rachel, you have ADHD." [caption id="attachment_5352" align="alignnone" width="584"] A visual representation of my brain as portrayed by...

Review: Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick

Laura Mercier has never let me down with their products, but I haven't tried a lot they have to offer. So when two shades of their new Velour Extreme Matte Lipsticks were sent to me complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster, I was intrigued. Would these be as great, albeit limited, as my other experiences with LM's products? As always, opinions are mine and mine alone! Texture/Feel: Soft yet tight....

What’s Passed and What’s to Come: A Year in the Life

2017. Wow. What a whirlwind year. This year started out crazy. The election set an uneasy tone for a wild, wild year for everyone, regardless of personal predeliction. Things have been wrong, bad, and off. But there has been a huge swell of hope, togetherness, and kindness at the same time. I think as horrible as this past year was at times, there were equally hopeful moments to balance it out....

November + December + 2017 Favorites

The last couple'a months of 2017 were on par with the rest of the year: CRAZY! And as I've touched on many a'time, when life gets crazy and busy, I scale way back on beauty and go with quick and easy. I'd love to say I can still "make the time" to do all that glam stuff, but I'm not Super Woman. (In fact, I think a much more appropriate,...

September + October Favorites

When you get greviously behind on a feature, sometimes you just have to say "F... ine, I'll condense two months worth of info so I can get my life together." Plus, to be honest, I've had a super consistent beauty routine lately, so my picks for both months would be so similar it'd be boring. + Reveal Me Face Exfoliating Gel  >> Hello weird weather... thank you for the even...

My Most Asked About Makeup Look

There is one makeup look that, when I initially threw together, was not supposed to be anything other than–shocker–a "no makeup" makeup look. But that day, I had people stopping me and asking me what I was wearing on my face all day. The next day, I had a coworker ask me to write down what I had been using because she said I was "glowing." My boyfriend legit stopped...

My Fave Fall Trends

Fall is my lifeblood. I'm pretty sure all the other months of the year are charged for me by the energy this season provides me. The leaves, weather, Halloween, school starting, football, warm beverages, bonfires, and hiking/camping are just some of the many super predictable reasons I love autumn. But y'all know why I really live for it: the CLOOOOOOTHES. And an excuse to wear a damn deep purple lip,...
