the skincare superhero

GLAMGLOW. Just the name of the company sounds like a freaking superhero. Although I love many, many of their products (a listicle post is coming at you guys), one product that is extra special is their GLAMGLOW Super Serum. Much like Tom Holland has all the makings of the perfect Spiderman, GLAMGLOW’s Super Serum has all the makings of a superpowered serum. I’ve tried a … Continue reading the skincare superhero

this bronzer feels like summertime

I’m from the suburbs of Chicago, and the closing out of summertime was always marked by one thing: Lollapalooza. And let me tell you, my peak summer moment was the version of me that was dancing to Summertime by Childish Gambino under the hot sun, holding on to a grapefruit Bon & Viv, wearing Michael Kors sunglasses and JCREW shorts, as the crowd sang and … Continue reading this bronzer feels like summertime

The nod to Marilyn Monroe, the foil between Blair and Serena, the makeup, the wardrobe–it’s one of the more memorable dream sequences of … Continue reading a jewelry pen way more useful than dan humphrey

popeye’s snatching the crown from jesus chicken

Chick-fil-A and I have a complicated relationship. I’ll eat it. But I won’t go out of my way to do it. CFA reminds me of that weird hyper-religious girl that loves horses, Jesus, odd skirts, and crucifying and judging other people for their actions. Think of Mandy Moore, and Amanda Byne’s character in Easy A. You know exactly who I’m talking about. I’ll eat CFA, … Continue reading popeye’s snatching the crown from jesus chicken

the emily gilmore of hard candies

I am not a huge fan of hard candy. I have always loved candy you can munch on and chew, which is why my favorite candies are gummies and truffles. I like candy I can bite into. Plus, there’s just something about hard candies that reminds me of a grandmother’s purse full of coins, photos of their grandchildren, and multicolored potentially expired hard candies. I … Continue reading the emily gilmore of hard candies
