Here's to a New Season

It's always a sad moment when you realize summer is officially over and autumn has fallen upon us (see what I did there? ;-) ). But there's no reason to fall in spirit, there are so many great things to fall in love with in this new season.
(That's the last of my awful joking, I promise.)

Today, I'd like to take a moment to say one last farewell to the summer season and all the fashion that goes along with it, including a beautiful, flowy dress that was an absolute favorite these past few months.

I Should Be Doing Homework... Or Sleeping...

I feel like every time I write a post I say "Wow, I haven't blogged for a while."
But it really has been a while (a little over a month actually, whoops).
I thought I'd stop by and say a quick hello. 
Ok, fine, I actually wanted to take a break from my working on an assignment.
But I also wanted to let you know that I have exciting posts coming up! 
In fact...

Angels in India

On June 4, 2016, 21 of us flew from the United States to Hyderabad, India for a week. 
Why? To open angel homes and love on the beautiful angels.

The Estee Edit #BeautyAttitudes

Honestly, I've basically never had any interest in trying any makeup from Estee Lauder.
Why? Every time I think "Estee Lauder," I think "old women makeup."
My nighttime eye cream is actually from Estee Lauder because I heard how their skincare aims towards helping older women with lines and wrinkles. I'm not that old, but never too early to start taking precautionary measures, right?

The Estee Edit (sold exclusively at Sephora) is actually a campaign/collection aimed more towards the younger generation, the rule breakers and risk takers. So I was a bit curious to see if that would change my mind about Estee Lauder makeup!

Lipstick Loves

In honor of yesterday being National Lipstick Day (I know I'm a little late onto the bandwagon), I thought I would share two of my very favorite lipsticks. 
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen this photo.

Why Everyone is Going Coconuts

It is like the most talked about beauty secret of basically the decade
Okay, a little exaggerating there, but who has not heard about coconut oil and all the useful things it can do?!
Therefore, I thought today I would share a few of the unusual ways you can use coconut oil and why it's such a great product. You won't see any "hair mask, moisturizer, body scrub" tips here. Nope. 

What is it about coconut oil that is so special? Why is it often considered the "Tree of Life" in Southeast Asia, India, Philippines, and other tropical locations?
