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?

Power Couple: Spring's Must-Try Color Combinations

A couple of years ago I went through a huge color-blocking phase when it came to my outfits. Not only did I mix colors, but I really enjoyed mixing patterns as well! It was just so much fun! 
When I saw Christina Shanahan's article on spring's seven "must-try who-knew" color pairings in the April 2016 InStyle magazine, it just really took me back to those good ol' colorful days! 
Therefore, I thought I'd share three of the color pairings from the article that had inspired me and made me miss incorporating some color into my more neutral outfits nowadays. 
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 

Pale Blue + Aubergine
How great is this color combo transitioning from fall/winter into spring?! 
I love how the pale blue brightens and adds an interesting element to the deep purple!
