July PLAY by Sephora is the Best EVER!

July 22, 2017
July PLAY BY SEPHORA Subscription Unboxing

The July PLAY by SEPHORA was the best ever this month with a perfect mix of makeup, skincare and haircare products. PLAY is routinely one of my favorite subscription steals, at only $10 a month for a majority mix of deluxe “samples”. It’s totally worth it to try something new or get a good amount of an old favorite. While all of this month’s offerings were steller, I was really glad to find the following three products in my “staycation” bag.…

the best lush product for your skin

There are so many amazing things to fill your bag with at cult favorite “Lush“,  it’s hard to decide what to choose – if you are on a limited budget (who isn’t!). While it’s easy to pepper your pampering routine with bath bombs and bubbles, Lush is also a great place to find awesome skin care products. After trying tons of products and re-ordering multiple Lush favorites, I always return to stocking my shelves with the same three skin-friendly products over and…

L. Feminine Hygiene Products are the Bomb

June 6, 2017
feminine hygiene products for periods at Target

A part of being female is getting your period. There are already so many barriers to women’s health and reproductive rights, it’s frustrating that feminine hygiene products are still not considered a basic human necessity. Even if a woman can afford pads or tampons, that doesn’t mean the most cost-effective brands are chemical-free. I was shocked when I recently found out that most hygiene products contain harmful fragrances, dyes and even PESTICIDES and CHLORINE. WTF? This stuff should not be anywhere near the delicate…

Spring Style – Lead Actress

May 18, 2017

This look transports me to a rainy movie set- waiting between takes for lights, camera, action. It’s easy to feel insignificant among so many background actors and crew bustling about, just another face in the crowd. But then you hear your name being called, “right this way” someone says “we’re ready for you” and you remember how hard you worked to get here. You swipe on one more coat of red lipstick and walk out in front of that camera.  Quiet on…

Being the oldest of five, I have a very special first-born connection with my mother, Wendy. We are both so similarly smart and strong willed – it was always easy for us to chat, hang out, fight, make-up, support each other, challenge one another and grow together.  While we’ve had our ups and downs (as all mothers and daughters do) I can honestly say I am in the best place with my mom and am so happy to have her in…

I was so excited to shoot with a fellow blogger for today’s post! I met Marina from Blue Beetle Blog at Revel during an accessories swap and we exchanged contact information. It’s hard to find other bloggers in the area much less style bloggers, so it’s been so great hanging out with another fashion superfan! Both marina and I are so excited about dramatic sleeves as a trend for Spring. We decided to each style bold sleeves in our own way…

I had a great time shopping Revel’s spring cleaning sale a few weekends ago! If you aren’t familiar, Revel is an amazing craft bar located downtown right next to the Madison Children’s Museum. It is one of my FAVORITE places to hang out with my friends, relax and give my creativity a jump start when I am feeling tapped out. You can get a fun drink (they have this rosewater vodka mixer that is the bomb), make a Pinterest-worthy craft from…

    Time is literally flying away from me this year. My days have been filled with equal parts trying to relax and being so crazy busy I don’t know what to do! I can’t complain too much because most of the busyness has manifested as beautiful opportunities for me to do things that I love! One of these things that I am very excited about is that I have officially joined the z.bella boutique team as a shop stylist! I will be working in…
