Formerly a weekly themed post I adapted from That’s Chic, this is a list of my favorite things for the month. Music Monday I’m a big rom-com fan and I’m actually surprised I have not seen Serendipity in its entirety until this month. I only remember seeing the elevator scene once on HBO. I thought Nick Drake’s “Northern Sky” playing at the very end…

Music Monday I have not stopped talking about To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before since it started streaming on Netflix two weeks ago.

To All the Boys* I’ve Loved Before

* In which I mean, fictional boys, of course. I have fallen down a deep, deep hole that is To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and I’m happily swooning over Peter Kavinsky like he’s a real person. I’ve watched the movie thrice since it started streaming on Netflix on Friday and have finished the last two books in the…

Skin Care Empties: Toner, Cleanser, Serum, and More

Getting In Tune With My Intuition

I’ve always been the type to flip to the horoscope part of the newspaper or a magazine ever since I can remember. I thought it was cool when my reading would mirror what was happening in real life. But I never made it the all-encompassing guide of my life. Sure, I would obsessively check Astrology Zone for my monthly horoscope…

An Obsession With Rose Gold and Neutral Palettes

My first memory of putting on makeup was in grade school when my two younger brothers and I were part of a play written and directed by Fr. Reuter. It was a production of The Night Before Christmas and I was one of the ballerinas. Back then, my mom was the one who did our makeup. She bought green cake…
