Hello It’s Me… (Finally!)

Helllooo, it’s me. FINALLY!
IMG_5556
First of all I want to start off by apologizing! I haven’t blogged in about a year now and I’m sorry I suck. This past year had been full of highs, lows, existential crises and (did I mention?) traveling the world! There really isn’t a proper excuse I can make for the reason I haven’t written in so long, so I’m sorry. I promise I wasn’t being a complete couch potato! The past 6 months I spent traveling throughout Europe, experiencing new cultures, eating incredible food, stalking a few too many wild cats and finding myself again. Studying abroad isn’t always all that it’s cracked up to be though. Stay tuned for the details and I’ll be sharing the highlights, and of course lowlights, of my time in Europe.

Adulting is hard. In the next month, I’m gearing up to begin my final semester of college, so my stress levels are at an all time high! Job research, cover letters and interview tips to come. Senior year is exciting, but also slightly terrifying. Check back here to see how it feels to take the plunge into the real adult world.

 

What about the makeup?! Don’t you worry your pretty little face! I’m still plenty obsessed with beauty products and my empty wallet will back me up! I recently took a trip to Ulta and purchased a ton of new products ready to review.

 

Also more news, I mentioned the food in Europe is AMAZING! In fact, it was so good that I helped myself to a little bit more than I should have. I am now 12 days into a new diet a workout routine that has cut down my bloating and given me the energy of a 10 year old! Details to come.

So this is the relaunch of my blog! In just a few weeks I’m headed back to Madison to begin my Senior year of college, find a job, struggle with my trust issues and continue to spend all of my money on makeup and clothing. Also speaking of my existential crisis, I’ll finally share my lifelong struggle with anxiety and techniques I’ve learned to cope with it. Follow all of my (mis)fortunes here! Here is the Truth about Beauty, Fashion and Love (Plus Travel)!

First Impression: Rent the Runway

I recently had to attend a formal event, but I didn’t want to splurge on a new dress. Instead, I decided to try Rent the Runway for the first time! For those of you who don’t know, Rent the Runway allows you to rent a designer dress for 4-8 days! It’s great for weddings, formal events or even just fancy nights out! I rented a dress by Yigel Azrouel called “Sip of Wine.” One great feature of the site is that it allows you to see the dress on real people who have rented it in the past. There are reviews of each dress describing the fit, color and overall impressions of the dress, so customers don’t have to go in completely blind.

Though I saw great reviews on the dress, I was still a little nervous to order the dress online. My main concern was timing. The dress was set to arrive the day before my event. What if it didn’t fit? What if I hated it? I didn’t have very much time to find a backup. Luckily, Rent the Runway offers a free backup size in the order, so that eased my anxiety a bit.

The dress arrived on time, one day before my event. It was phenomenal. It fit every curve of my body exactly the way I wanted it to. The neckline was slightly higher than featured on the model and the color was a little more purple than wine, but overall I loved it. It fit great and I never suffered any wardrobe malfunctions during my numerous spazzy dance moves. I actually received a lot of complements. The whole process was incredibly easy and I can’t wait to order from them again.

3 Distinct Styles

My roommates are two of my favorite people on the planet. We can be some of the weirdest people when we’re together, spending hours rolling on the floor in laughter. Each of us have very unique personalities. As three distinct people, we each have our own take on style.

Claire takes classic pieces and adds some extra spice. She added flare by adding a fur vest to a simple dark wash jean and black tank combo.

Me: Indie Chic

I like to pair girly pieces with bold or edgy pieces. Fringe, leather and studs decorate many of favorite accessories.  I always loved the song “punk rock princess” by Something Corporate and that’s exactly how I would describe my lifestyle.
