How to Be Parisian (I joined a book club…)


Early in January, I decided to join a book club.  Yes, I - joined - a - book - club.  If you know me, you know that I rarely read anything that has a cover.  I've long since become one of those lazy-readers.  My daily reads include short soundbites of news on Social Media and work emails.  I'm terrible.
In an effort to become an over-all better human being in 2015, I thought it was due time to start nourishing my brain and soul with a good ol' book (or 12).

The Purge: Closet Edition


I recently read somewhere that how you treat your environment around you is a reflection of how you treat the people that you surround yourself with. If you have a pile of crap that you hang on to but don't need, chances are you have an abundance of people in your life that do not benefit you in any way, yet you'll still keep in contact with them for no particular reason. In recent years, I've noticed myself pulling away from people like this because, to be quite honest, why surround yourself with people who do not have a genuine interest in you, or that do not have a positive impact on your life? I forget who it was that said this, but "I would rather have four quarters than a hundred pennies" - wouldn't you? I've found that applying this logical thought to my own life has incredibly increased my level of happiness. The people that I do surround myself with are people that I genuinely enjoy the company of. They are people that I can have real conversations with, be myself with, and laugh and cry with.

Korean Skincare & Makeup: Haul & Review!


Back in November, my entire family took a trip to Seoul, South Korea because my sister was getting married there.  Obviously,  I did some shopping because one does not simply fly half-way across the world and buy nothing, haha!  Although Korean makeup has become a huge trend in the beauty world, I didn't splurge on mountains of products because I, myself, am not a make-up junkie.  However, I do have a love affair with skincare & lash products (and a very huge love-hate relationship with my own skin - damn you blemishes and blackheads!)

Keep reading to get in the know of all the products I picked up!
