Review – OGX Conditioner

For the past couple of months, I’ve been co-washing my weave with a natural mixture of yogurt, honey, and mayo. I stopped using shampoo and start co-washing after I realized how dry and damaged my hair was. I would leave on the mixture for about an hour, then wash it out. However, I noticed that 1. my hair was starting to go limp and it wouldn’t hold a curl, and 2. my hair wasn’t getting clean.

Don’t Let Boys Take Your Stuffed Animals & Other Lessons Learned

Stuffed animals are amazing. They’re reassuring, comforting, and they remind of us hugs and kisses and our childhood. My favorite kind of stuffed animal is any form of Hello Kitty. I have an irrational love of Hello Kitty. The mouthless, fashionable cat just really resonates with me for some reason. She’s cute and always goes on the best adventures. When I turned 10, a friend bought me my first Hello Kitty stuffed animal. She wore a plaid skirt and a blue winter sweater and I loved her. So of course, when I went to college at the age of 17, I brought her with me.

How to Budget

Before I get into my budgeting tips, I want to tell you guys that I’ll be attending the The Set NYC’s Fashion week show. There will be a bunch of designers and artists presenting their work, and I’ll be snapping away throughout the show! Add me on snapchat @ xoxotemi to send all of the action.

Getting to the budgeting, ever since I finally a got a paid internship, I’ve decided to put more effort towards saving money. Everyone should have some money put away for something they’re saving for, and an emergency fund. Budgeting and saving can be tough, but here are some resources that might help you guys.

Review – Maybelline Master Precise Skinny Gel Pencil

As I mentioned in my Wet n Wild eyeliner review, I loveeeee a pencil gel liner on the bottom lid. When I was in high school, I used to ONLY line my bottom lid.

For the past couple of years, I’ve used the Maybelline Eye Studio Master Drama Cream Pencil Liner. I love it because I never have to worry about smudged liner or sweating it off. When I went to the store last week to buy a new one after I ran out, I was shocked to see that my beloved liner wasn’t there! It seems like Maybelline discontinued the liner, because I didn’t see it listed on their website when I went to check.

Review – Wet n Wild Liquid Eyeliner

I’ve had a love affair with liquid liner since I was in college. I always used a gel pencil on the bottom, and liquid on top. However, I hadn’t ever really come across an AMAZING liquid liner before. After I finished my last liquid liner, I decided to try a new brand. I want the liner to be the darkest black it could be, and I wanted one that was pen-shaped.

Hello September

September is finally here! I have been aching for September and fall for months now, this summer of heat waves and humidity made me realize how much I’m NOT a summer person. I love fall, the brisk breezes, the scarves you pull tighter, the crunch of  new boots on the leaves.

Even though I’m out of school, September still feels like a new beginning. Almost like  a reset on the rest of the year. Plus, September is my half birthday, so I know I’m halfway away from 23 and halfway to 24 (omg!). I’ve always been really weird about sharing my goals; I think that if I say them out loud, they won’t happen. I’m trying to do away with this negative thinking, so I’ve decided to create a list of goals I want to accomplish before we ring in 2017. The list on the left is for physical goals, while the list on the right is for mental/emotional goals.
