Caroline Vreeland is a Living Icon

Instagram is best used as a source of inspiration, but oftentimes the app can feel mundane. In the saturated world of fashion, it is really difficult to stand out. There are millions of people posting their #OOTDs, and it's hard to distinguish one hot mormon blogger from the next. One person who never fails to entertain me online is Caroline Vreeland. She's the perfect combination of timeless beauty and unapologetic sex appeal. Even GQ has a crush on her. Following Caroline is a lesson…

Jennifer Kapahi: treStiQue is chic

As a blogger, I've tried countless beauty products. My lipstick collection exceeds 50 colors. Yet, despite having tried nearly every brand in Sephora, I find myself grabbing the same lip crayon over and over. The brand is treStiQue, and I wouldn't be surprised if you've never heard of it. It wasn't until early this year that they made their debut in Sephora, under the #scouted initiative. But before you go back and buy the eyebrow pencil you're only kind of happy…

We Rent Our Clothes

I spend less money on clothes than I ever have, and I am infinitely better dressed. When I have a special occasion, I always have on the perfect outfit. When I’m taking a trip I always bring a bag you’ve never seen before. My #OOTD is always on fleek. I rarely repeat outfits. This is because I am subscribed to Rent the Runway Unlimited, and have been since April 2016, and it's truly a life changing service. I've written an…

Sexy Fall Reads 2017

Since the last time I wrote a book review, i've read more than 15 new books. This summer I recommended books for you to read on the beach. Now i'm suggesting a few novels that you should curl up with this fall. Disclaimer: I do make a *very small* percentage of sales if you purchase any of these books by clicking on the photos. A Little Life - Hanya Yanagihara If you like to cry, you'll like this book. Before…

One Sleeve in Fall

There are few things bitches love more than fall fashion. Nothing pairs better with a latte than a long cardigan and boyfriend jeans. It can be easy to jump the gun and sweat your butt off in fall attire. Instead, i've paired togethers some summer outfits that can easily translate into Fall. I used some of my favorite summer pieces, like these platform heels that are on sale for $7!!! My suggestion, buy them in every color. Both the DVF floral…

Look What You Made Me Write

Unless you live under a literal rock, or you don't have social media, you've heard Taylor Swift's new single. Whether you're a superfan (like moi) or one of her many haters, you can't deny it's not her best. Her song, Look What You Made Me Do, shades known enemies Kimye and Katy Perry. Tori and I spent our afternoon discussing the nuances of TSwift's comeback. I'm a known Taylor swift "stan" (superfan) and Tori is a HUGE Kanye supporter, so in general…

Stay Satisfied with WIYB

(top photo via badass prints Barcelona) Subscription boxes have been all the rage for a few years now. I mean, there are more beauty boxes than you can keep up with.

Unalike any of these, we have WIYB-- What’s in Your Box? If you…

Boss Babe Highlights

When it comes to self-promotion, I have minimal shame. Seriously, I bring business cards with me to the beach. If someone asks me a question about myself, i’ll make it a point to tie my blog into the mix. Since moving to New York, I've met exponentially more bloggers than I knew in Boston. Of course, it’s absolutely no surprise that so many creative people live in the city of constant renaissance. Below I've rounded up my favorite blogs to…

My Calligraphy Experience

A few weeks ago I discovered my secret talent of floral design. Last week I learned that nobody is a natural at calligraphy. My friend Kenzie reached out to me recently about how we absolutely needed to take a calligraphy class. To clarify, Kenzie is engaged, so it makes sense that she's been itching to do this activity! She found Juliana of Ink and Nibs on Instagram, and we reserved spots to attend a class at an Astoria flower shop…
