Behind the Scenes with Marist Fashion


One day this week, I got to experience the college life and go to Marist College for the day. Marist is known for being a high tier school with fantastic teams, majors, and of course, its Fashion Program. Every year people near and far wait for the huge annual Silver Needle Runway Show. Extremely talented student designers spend long hours creating gorgeous collections to display on the runway. I was invited to attend one of their lookbook photoshoots and I had the opportunity to learn about the program, speak with a few of the designers, and even shop around the campus store, Fashionology.

Firmoo Frames


If I want to get the full effect of every pixel staring out at the lights in Time Square, I better have my glasses on or it's probably a blur. I go to my optometrist yearly to get an eye exam and new specs, but it is always such a hassle. It really seems that the ladies at the counter must get a very, very large commission because the higher price tag for the glasses you try on, the more they seem to like them on you. When picking something as important as prescription glasses it is important to make a good decision and not have someone hounding you to purchase something you dislike.

Timeless Truth Series: #2

So as promised from the initial post of this series reviewing Timeless Truth eye masks, I am back with my mother's take on the products. Back in my review, I stated how much I really liked these eye masks. To get the most out of this review I had my mother test out two eye masks also this way I can compare and contrast on two age/types of skin.

Tmart Shopping


With me being online shopping obsessed, I'm always in search of a new online store. Tmart has allowed me to review one of my favorite items off their website, so I had to go for this black and white bodycon dress. This is such an easy online shop that sells basically everything. From accessories to clothing to electronics, they got it!

Obsessed: Buckley London


So accessorizing is what makes me whole as a fashion guru. You can never go wrong with timeless jewelry. I have received a few new pieces from Buckley London which is one of the best known fashion jewelry lines in the UK. Their jewelry is very beautiful and dainty which I adore! It is very easy to pair something like theirs with anything and it will give you that special touch to complete any ensemble. You can really notice the classy jewelry aspect that Europe is known for in Buckley London!

Timeless Truth Series: #1

I think based off some of my previous beauty posts, it's obvious that I am obsessed with good home spa treatments. There are many products that are extremely effective for your skin without leaving your home. I believe that skin care treatment like this should begin at a young age to help prevent problems in the future. Timeless Truth Cosmetics America has gifted me with masks that I had been dying to tell you about. I have multiple different types which I will be reviewing in a series, along with my mom so you can hear about the varying results on different ages and skin types. This first post is specifically dedicated to testing out two of their eye masks!




The blue packet is the Hydra Intense Bio Cellulose Eye Mask which is the definition of refreshing and gently moisturizes while de-puffing the under eye area. You place it underneath your eye for 15-20 minutes and then massage the excess into your skin once removed. The biggest thing I noticed after using this one was a brighter and smoother appearance under the eye. The mask in general has a slippery feel, but will it stayed right in place when I applied it. It was also very saturated with the formula, so I felt like you were really getting the full effect. 


The second one in the orange packet is the Chamomile De-Stress Bio Cellulose Eye Mask and it is meant to relax the skin in order to release bad, trapped particles. It is made with very natural ingredients and I really did feel a soothing sensation. Both masks have a initial tingling feeling, but in a nice way. It is like you actually feel it working on your skin, which is always great!

Art on It Les Chromatiques




Working as a model, I am always working with new makeup artists and I get to learn the application tricks in the beauty industry. Recently I have been into eye shadow because you can be so creative with it since there is a unlimited amount of ways it can be applied. The only trick is finding the perfect product to do so. Quality is the most important thing which coincides with pigmentation, smooth application, and of course the perfect colors!

The Start of a LiLash~LiBrow Journey

Who doesn't obsess over long lashes and perfect brows? I literally think that it has taken over the beauty industry for 2015. Personally I am lucky to have pretty long and full brows. Genetics plays a role for sure along with a good lifestyle, healthy eating, exercise, and taking daily vitamins. In all honesty though, volume is somewhat harder to come by. I guess that is the whole concept of just wearing mascara, fiber lashes, or falsies, but there is nothing better than just having them naturally.

Dauphines of New York

Throughout my entire years of middle school, headbands were my obsession and this has led me to own about 100 of them. I didn't even know who Blair Waldorf was at the time, so it was purely my original style. I always found them so easy to wear and with endless colors and bows, you were on your way out the door in a flash!
