Cruelty Free Beauty Faves

Now that the end of the semester is approaching I've been on the go every day, planning trips, running from class to work to internship interviews and the like, and doing my best to keep my skin healthy. Since it's been warm recently, I've been toning down the makeup a little and keepi…

A Day in the Mountains // Bold Rock Cidery + Antique Shopping

Last weekend I headed down to JMU in Harrisonburg, VA to visit my best friend Emily for the weekend. We had plans to take a trip to the Bold Rock Cider Barn in Nellysford, maybe do some hiking, and then hang around in our pajamas and eat Cookout. If you've never been to Cookout, get your butt …

DIY Abstract Gravity Painting

A few months ago I decided that I wanted to make a big monochromatic painting to hang over my bed, because I thought it would look really cool and modern, especially since I'm trying to update my space to add more texture and unique, handmade elements. I saw a video in which an artist poured c…

Spring Is Here, Groovy! // A Simple Outfit Post

Spring has officially sprung, but I'm still finding myself gravitating towards fall colors. This may be due to the fact that I've yet to do any seasonal shopping. But you know what? I'm not a big neon person. Nor do I wear much white, and pastels (unless muted or earth tones) wash me o…
