New Perfume for Winter

I bought a few new perfumes in the last few weeks that I felt a real connection with. I’ve always struggled with autumn and winter fragrances.

My Signature Makeup Look

We live in an age where so many people share their “everyday looks” every two minutes but truly, the eye makeup I’ve been wearing has been pretty consistent for the past *gasp* 6 years. I used to make Youtube videos in …
