Bath & Body Treats with Red Door Spa

Red Door Spa

I rarely get them, but there’s nothing more relaxing than a facial. I hadn’t treated myself to one in a while, so when I was in New York last week I decided to get one. I’m a big believer in pampering myself, although it’s usually more along the lines of chocolate and a movie while painting my nails.

You know what’s also amazing sometimes? A long hot shower. A little special treatment there doesn’t hurt either.

Morsels of the Week ft. NYC, Birchbox, NARS

Shoes of the Day

Basically the past two weeks I’ve been in NYC, one of my favorite cities to visit and just a reasonable bus ride away from my school. Last week I was here with my best friend and we had a ton of fun just shopping around and eating great food.

Get the Look: Cheeky Bronze Glow

Bronzed and Beautiful Skin

Although lately I’ve been getting more obsessed with lippies (stay tuned for my thoughts on an amazing new one from NARS!), I’m a face product girl at heart. Nothing excites me more than the promise of glowy skin that takes perfect to the next level.

Often times though, my face makeup routine is really simple. I forgo foundation for concealer and powder on a daily basis. But when I want to step up my game for a fun night out with the girls or a dinner date, I like layering my favorite cheek products for a gorgeous finish that is guaranteed to last.
