Back to MAC.

Image
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 …

Layered Looks with ModCloth.

ModCloth Layered Style by awildtonic featuring layering cardigans 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 …

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 stat…
