    What’s in my bag?

    Anyone else a huge fan of this oldie but goodie throwback to the beginnings of YouTube? I can’t say no to a ‘What’s in my bag?’ video, not just because they are so nostalgic, but also because, I love organizing, remember? …and I can be nosey (don’t judge!)…but mostly because of the organizing thing – it’s so helpful and inspiring to see what people carry and how they structure their handbags! Anyhow, it’s time for me to pay it forward because I love my LV Neo Noe. This bag has it all: it’s trendy yet classic, all while being super functional. The straps can shorten and lengthen to allow you…

    Nighttime Skincare Routine

    Back in February, I posted my morning skincare routine with all intentions of following right up with the nighttime version. However, things didn’t quite work out that way (clearly πŸ˜› ) Between finishing up products (yay!), the change of seasons, and trying to break bad habits (makeup wipes!!), my PM routine was in some sort of limbo. I didn’t want to share my process without having a consistent one for at least 6 weeks, and I’m happy to report, three months later, I got one! Products may change here and there, but the steps remain the same. For the sake of time and filming, I only included my current routine…

    Summer Sales – Loft Haul

    Memorial Day is over, but the Loft sales are still going on! I picked up a few great summer pieces, and they all haven’t come in yet, but I wanted to share before these deals are over! I’ve shared a lot of Loft on this blog and I see myself sharing a lot more in the future. Their style and vibe really matches my lifestyle: casual and comfortable yet classy. Not to mention, their Petite sizing fits me so well! Each image is linked, so you can shop this post directly. This style of shirt, thin with button detail and a tie hem, is so versatile for this time of…

    Fresh Face of Clean Beauty

    While I’ve been into clean skincare for several years now, I really only started to dive into the world of clean makeup earlier this year. My visit to Follain Dallas really sparked my interest; I wasn’t totally sold on the idea of shopping for clean makeup online until I had a chance to really play with the product in person. Pittsburgh is still the best city in the world πŸ˜› , but we don’t always have the latest and greatest in terms of natural beauty, so whenever I’m in an area that does, I’m all over it! I’ve finally amassed enough of a collection where I was able to do…

    Clean Haircare

    I’ve been sticking to my #cleanstreak promise and haven’t purchased a ‘non-clean’/’non-green’ beauty or hair product since my major declutter earlier this year. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this – I’m slowly trying to find clean alternatives to the not-so-clean parts of my skincare and beauty routine. Step 1 was decluttering all of my existing products so I know what I have left to use and what I was ready to toss. Now that I can see the contents of my collection daily, I have been making my way through it, using up products and moving on to the next so I can the most of my…

    Indian Wedding GRWM

    Another weekend, another wedding…but this time, Desi style! I’ve already shared some wedding guest inspo for an American-style wedding, so I thought it would be nice if I brought you guys along with me as I got ready for the Sangeet (dance-party/talent show night) before the wedding. I mean, who doesn’t love a little fast-forwarded, makeup application, twirly dress action? πŸ˜‰ The products I used (in order) are listed below: Smashbox Photo Finish 24 Hour Shadow Primer Urban Decay Double-ended Shadow/Blending Brush Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly PaletteΒ  Makeup Revolution Renaissance Flick Eyeliner Pen Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Tan Sephora Collection PRO Airbrush Detail Brush #57 RMS…

    1 Bodysuit, 4 Ways

    Bodysuits, like rompers, jumpsuits (and maybe most fashion trends), used to intimidate me. Here you have this form fitting top that’s gonna reduce your bathroom-going efficiency (lol, this was a big reason I had a hard time embracing rompers and jumpsuits πŸ˜› ) and until recently, I mostly saw it on the likes of Kim Kardashian. Nothing against Kim, but our styles couldn’t be more different!Β  I just didn’t see this as something I could embrace. Enter: my high-waisted denim craze. All of the sudden, my shirts are either front-tucked, side knotted, or fully tucked in. I’m constantly fussing with the excess fabric in the hopes of creating a smooth…

    An Everyday Glam Makeup Look

    If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then a video’s gotta be a novel’s worth! There’s no better way to share my latest favorite makeup look and how I apply each product πŸ™‚ Disclaimer: I’m pretty excited about this everyday sparkly look and while I’m definitely not a makeup artist, I hope that some of my tips are helpful for those looking to amp up their daily look. The video is definitely on the longer side and I happened to film while multiple tractors were running (sorry, lol!), but I genuinely love these products and think they can be flattering for a wide range of skin tones. Products used, in…

    Wedding Guest Outfit Inspo

    I attended a beautiful outdoor wedding this past weekend and used this as a great opportunity to shop my closet. In the days leading up to the wedding, I had no idea what to wear and turned to the wonderful IG BittaFab Fam to help me decide. In the end, however, I went a totally different way πŸ˜›Β  It was still awesome to see what everyone liked and to engage with so many awesome followers. This is what I ended up wearing — a beautiful floral lace midi dress that I bought a couple of years ago. It was totally perfect for the occasion and it’s for spring and summer,…

    Cozy Mode

    Every season has it’s own set of cozy wear, wouldn’t you say? During the winter, my go-to was usually a pair of leggings with an oversized sweater. This spring, I’ve been finding myself gravitating towards a different type of uniform. For the first time in a long time, I’ve been denim-obsessed! I feel like this goes against the #momcode of leggings and athleisure (which will always hold a special place in my heart), but ever since I went a little crazy buying jeans from American Eagle and Loft, they’re all I want to wear! There’s something about high-waisted jeans that is so comfy and supportive, just like a good pair…
