Wrist Candy.

I'm not a huge jewelry person because a) I typically find it just gets in the way when I'm typing (I'm a student), and b) I'm usually in a rush in the morning and picking out what jewelry to wear for the day is the last thing on my mind.

The two hair tools I rely on when my hair needs a bit of beautification, if you will, are the Conair 1.25" curling iron and the Hana Titanium Ionic 1.5" flat iron. Although I also have a Hot Tools 2" curling iron, I typically turn to my 1.25" barrel iron when I'm looking for some bouncy curls, as the 2" barrel is best for volume.

I really only learned how to curl my hair about a year ago. Talk about late to the party, right? I started off using it the traditional way with the clamp, and slo…

Favorites From the Past Few Weeks & Months ❤

With the Sephora VIB sale right around the corner (November 8th-12th) and considering I haven't written a favorites post in ages, I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone (hate that expression!) and talk about some of the things I've been using, loving, and obsessed with, and if any of these products that are available at Sephora also happen to find their way into your shopping basket, cough cough, LORAC Pro Palette, then so be it ;)
