  1. A writer from HerCampus tested virtually all of Kylie’s lip kits and chronicled her experience in this post + accompanying video. A must-see if you’re considering investing in her line, or for any old beauty addict!
  2. Also in the Kardashian realm: an ELLE writer adopted Kim’s shapewear strategy and doubled up on Spanx under three skintight ensembles…the photos in this are so mesmerizing!
  3. Barre3 does book club with 11 reads to boost your productivity and make you a better leader. I’m in!
  4. You might have heard that motion = emotion, but did you know that you can subtly tweak your own body language to hack your emotions?! You totally can. Get the details at Life Hack.
  5. Finally, I had my mind properly blown with this feature on inexpensive interior design. Serious Pinterest-worthy rooms at prices that makes me question basically everything. Genius!

Talking Body Love & Making a Cameo on the Girlspo+ Blog!

Team Girlspo

One of the cooler aspects of being a blogger is the opportunity to collaborate with different brands. Back in February, I was lucky enough to be able to join the Girlspo+ tribe as a brand ambassador. If you aren’t already acquainted with the Girlspo+, you need to be–their guide, message, and mission are next-level amazing. (You can read about my experience with the guide HERE, if you’re interested!) Look, I’m mad picky about my affiliations. If I don’t want to scream from the rooftops that I’m part of something, then I don’t want it. (And I definitely don’t want it on the blog!) I will only feature products or partner with brands that I am ALL about, so you can trust that if I’m recommending something, it is because I am personally very into it, if not obsessed with it. Obsession is the name of the game when it comes to my feelings for Girlspo. (more…)

It’s LIT: The Best Highlighters for EVERY Budget

LIT LIT LIT

If you’ve read the blog for awhile, you’re probably already aware that highlighter is by far my favorite beauty product. I swear by it. It comes in a variety of shades, formulations, and price points and I have amassed quite the collection of the stuff. The best illuminators, in my opinion, give a fresh, healthy, youthful glow. Glow is the name of the game. I’ve tried at least 10 illuminators over the last few years, but have recently settled on my beauty top three…These are the best of the best! They don’t so much provide color as they impart LIGHT. What girl doesn’t want that? Whether you’re looking to save, splurge, or spend somewhere in the middle, there’s a killer highlighter that you should definitely get your hands on. Here’s the scoop (and the swatches!) – priced from lowest to highest. (more…)

  1. If you’re into behind-the-scenes style info, you’ll love this: the costume designer from UnReal spilled her secrets on dressing the cast of the show to Racked, including the shopping deets on where she picks up all of those gowns.
  2. This NTY piece titled “The End of Reflection” is so true…and so disturbing. You know–#relatable but also #problematic. Max cultural relevance.
  3. Wedding season is upon us, so this Buzzfeed Barbies-gone-wild article on large-batch cocktails for bridal showers couldn’t have come at a better time.
  4. Good vibes and beauty combine in this  roundup where xoVain authors share what makes each of them feel their most beautiful.
  5. Finally, StyleCaster has a list of over 100(!!!) podcasts to binge listen to, ASAP. Obsessed.

  2. Speaking of hot bods, The Coveteur has 7 Sports Illustrated-model-approved moves for toning up quick.
  3. According to Well + Good, the hottest new piece of workout equipment is a MERMAID TAIL.
  4. Style Caster covers bikini maintenance with non-negotiable cleaning tips for the care and keeping of your favorite suits.
