For The Homebody & Host

I’ve been trying to prep some gift guides for the holidays and thought I was going to merge them all together in one post. I quickly realized that’s way too overwhelming. I’d rather you all get right to the meat of what you want to see, so over the course of the month I’m going to post gift guides based on the type of person you’re shopping for.

Keep reading for some of my tops picks for your favorite Homebody Host.

Top 10 Favorites Perfumes

I had a blast writing this post because I learned so much about the scents that I find beautiful. Isn’t that wild? Things you think smell amazing are the same scents that some people are disgusted by, which means everyone finds beauty in something different. Maybe I’m taking that too far, but it’s something I’ve spent a long time thinking about.

For me, I don’t stray too far from the scents I like, so most of these are going to be pretty similar to each other. I like floral, citrus, clean, woody scents. I don’t like overly warm or musky scents. After all of my research I’ve found that I love me some rose, orange and amber notes. I’ve also found that I really like some of the notes I thought I hated the most. Here are ten of some of my favorite perfumes:

Why You Should Hire Someone Inexperienced


I have a lot of feelings on this subject, mostly because I’ve been looking for a job for the past six months as you can see in the image above. Sadly, that’s not all the jobs I applied to if you count the applicants directly on company websites or outside of these job search sites.

However, even when I did have a job I had to settle for a two different cafe jobs because even with a college degree (a $50k piece of paper at this point!) I still couldn’t get a “real job”. The expectations for entry-level jobs are insane, so insane that there are memes surrounding the subject. It’s a known struggle for people in this generation that, unless you had the luxury of great internships and unpaid opportunities (yes more than one) or knew somebody that knew somebody, you probably won’t have a good job after graduation – and that’s sad. Here’s a few reasons why you recruiters and hiring managers should take inexperienced applicants a little more seriously. Continue reading “Why You Should Hire Someone Inexperienced”

Best Moisturizers for Oily Skin

I’ve been on the search for the best moisturizers for oily skin for a long, long time. I love testing new skincare, but I don’t love when it makes my skin worse. Unfortunately, that’s the reality of changing up your skincare routine often, so I’d recommend if you try any of these to use them for a few days up to a couple of weeks before switching it up to the next one for best results. It takes your skin a little bit to adjust to a new product.

After years of trying out products from a bunch of different brands here are some of my favorite I’ve found so far, some more affordable than others.

ABH Modern Renaissance Look + Review


I’m all about the dusty pinks, and burnt orange eye shadows for Fall (and every other season,) but the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance is the perfect palette for Fall. Right now in California we’re on the cusp of the remaining Summer heat and the crisp Fall breeze that rolls in at night so I thought I’d throw together a look inspired by the change of seasons.

Tips For Driving Cross-Country

Utah Road
This is my second cross country road trip in the last six months, so I’ve learned a few things along the way. Here are some tips you need to know if you’re taking a 4-5 Day cross country road trip. I’ve driving both the Northern and Southern route at this point. I think I prefer the northern route to be honest, it felt a lot more relaxed. I went East Coast to West Coast both times, but all tips are just as applicable the other way around.

Fall Wedding Styles: Long Island

Fall Wedding Guest Glowing

I’ve been looking at dresses and what kind of makeup I want to do for my boyfriend’s brother’s wedding for longer than I’d like to admit. This is mostly because I never get to go to fancy things and I want to feel confident in what I’m wearing. I’ve come across so many nice things to wear so I wanted to share, hopefully this helps if you’re someone like me (an over-thinker). Here’s some of my favorites, on a budget.
