Have you guys heard about the "Back to MAC" program from MAC cosmetics? I had heard about it years ago, but never gave it a try until recently. Here's the deal, according to their website: "Because we share your commitment to the environment, M·A·C accepts returns of its primary packaging through the Back to M·A·C Program. By returning six [6] M·A·C primary packaging containers to a M·A·C counter or M·A·C Cosmetics online, you’ll receive a free M·A·C lipstick of your choice as our thanks to you."

I had a few eye shadows in my makeup collection, but I use eye shadow so infrequently! I really wanted a dark, Kendall Jenner-inspired lipstick though (don't judge me). So I took a trip to Dollar Tree and bought a pill case, transferred the eye shadows, and brought the empties to my local MAC retailer (I called ahead first to make sure they participated). The color I ended up with is Hangup in cremesheen, if anyone is interested. Also, the plate in the first photo is available in the shop here!


Layered Looks with ModCloth.

ModCloth Layered Style

Lately, I've been all about versatility in my wardrobe. I don't often shop for new clothes unless I know I can and will wear it multiple ways and on multiple occasions. Also, since I've started working part-time out of the house, I've been layering like crazy. I never know if work will be freezing cold or if I'll be dizzy and sweating from rushing around, so layering has become a kind of art form. I was so excited when ModCloth reached out to me and asked me to put together a little layered-look style board. I chose one tank top, one regular top, and one sweater that can be worn together or separately.

A Layer to Love Top in Beige, $14.99
A basic tank top is very important. I have tank tops (which I've been gathering since middle school) in almost every color imaginable. They are so great to wear alone, layered with other tanks, or layered with other tops. I wear a tank under my shirt almost every day I leave the house for work just to have that extra bit of warmth. Also, it's great to have a cami to wear under items that might be a bit sheer without being scandalous.

Graceful Air Top in Ivory, $44.99
I think this top is so pretty and so versatile. As I mentioned before, versatility is very important to me nowadays. This top can be worn to work, on a date, or out with friends. It's feminine and delicate, especially the pearl and rhinestone details, which I adore. Since the blouse has a cut-out detail at the top, you might feel more comfortable with a tank top underneath.

Budding Novelist Cardigan, $69.99
This was the first cardigan I saw on ModCloth while doing "research" for this post and I knew I had to use it. I love the color, the embroidery (!!!), and the asymmetrical hem. I also really appreciate the pockets and the hood. I think this cardigan can be worn all year round. I think I love it so much because of the heavy Stevie Nicks vibe. If this kind of cardigan isn't for you, you can check out more cardigans and sweaters at ModCloth.

A New Collection.

Vintage state map scarves, because why not? I have a few collections in my life currently, for example owl-related things which are always being given to me as gifts for whatever reason. I have a few sets of antlers/horns and about five elephant figurines, but that's about it. I would expect more from a sentimental vintage enthusiast and daughter of two moderate-former-hoarders. Don't get me wrong, I still have a lot of stuff, but not many collections. I've had this Florida scarf for a few years, and just found the Michigan one at Goodwill the other day. I think that this is an excellent idea for a collection for a few reasons. 1. There are only 50 states, so the collection won't get too huge. 2. Vintage scarves are generally cheap and don't take up too much space. 3. It'll give me something to hunt for when I thrift, which makes it extra fun. 4. I can always resell when I'm finished! What do you guys think? What do you collect? Oh, and if you have any state scarves floating around, I know someone who would love 'em. ;)


New Year's Eve Ideas!


Hey guys, long time no see! Are you ready for 2015? I certainly am. 2014 was an amazing year, but there's just something so exciting about the fresh start that the new year promises. I'll be attending a party at my friend's place in Brooklyn, but won't be drinking too much champagne as I have work at 10 the next morning. I don't mind, though. It'll be nice to start the new year without a hangover. Hahah!

Miscellaneous fun fact that I just learned on Wikipedia five minutes ago: NYE is also known as Old Year's Day or Saint Sylvester's Day in many countries.

Anyway, Julep reached out to me and sent me this really fun nail polish tutorial. It's holiday-inspired, but I think it would be perfect for a New Year's Eve celebration. Perhaps paired with a gold dress and burgundy shoes, or a burgundy dress and gold shoes. Don't you agree? I actually have a vintage burgundy-ish dress and an old pair of gold Seychelles that I probably will wear tomorrow night. Or maybe I'll just wear a t-shirt and sweatpants. We shall see! ;)
