The Period Project Pop Up Shop

Last weekend I visited the Period Project pop up shop, hosted by U by Kotex. I found this event through Facebook & decided to stop by on Sunday. The concept came from two gals on Tumblr and became a reality on 5th Avenue in New York City. 

Thanks Fleury Rose

The first level of the shop featured free nail art [I got the tampon nail art!], photo booths, and merchandise [all proceeds went to a women's shelter that helped homeless women transition into housing]. The second level offered free five minute massages, free ice cream, and a lounge [complete with phone charging stations and comfy couches].

Periods are a part of every woman's life and should be talked about more! I was thoroughly impressed with this event & hope they offer it again! 

Did you attend the Period Project pop up shop? Would you attend a pop up shop in the future?

Vanity Tour & Makeup Collection [Video]

Hello friends!

I decided it was time I did an updated vanity tour. I shared a vanity tour last year but my space has changed immensely since then! I've included links to all the furniture in the description box of the video. To make things even easier, I've created a shop-able makeup collection at the bottom of this post [I will include everything I can & may make additions over time!]. I hope this is helpful. 

Which set up do you prefer? My current or my previous?

The AM | PM Routine Tag

Image via Instagram

I was thrilled when Teresa of everythingtnm tagged me to do this post [see her answers here]! In a recent post, I stressed the importance of morning routines so this tag was right up my alley :) Shall we begin?


What is your morning beauty routine? My morning beauty routine is pretty simple. I either splash my face with water or use a gentle cleanser. I apply a moisturizer with spf. Depending on my day, I'll either jump into my makeup routine or sport a fresh face for the morning. 
What’s for breakfast? Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. My current go-to is a homemade acai bowl. This keeps me full throughout the morning but doesn't make me feel bloated or lead to a crash by lunch. My other favorite option is overnight oats--let me know if you'd like to see my chocolate peanut butter overnight oat recipe on the blog.
Coffee or tea? Coffee! Since I've moved to New York City, I've explored tons of incredible coffee shops. On the days I don't work, I head to a cute coffee shop to study for class or work on my blog. I've shared a few of the best coffee shops in NYC & I plan to create a part two in the future. 
 How long does it take to get out the door? Roughly an hour. If I'm headed into work, I'll eat breakfast, get ready, and pack a lunch. If I'm working in a coffee shop or going for a run, I'll be out the door in 30 minutes or so. 
What is your go-to makeup look on a fuss-free morning? If I'm just headed out for a work out or to get some work done, I won't bother with makeup. On days I'm running late to work, I'll apply a tinted moisturizer [in Porcelain],  concealer [in Custard], brow gelmascarablush [in Luster], and a lip tint [in I Rose You].

What is your evening beauty routine? I always start off by taking my makeup off as soon as I get home. I'll usually stick with a makeup remover cloth. Before bed, I'll go in with my evening skincare routine.
Snack time! What’s in the bowl? Snacks are my jam. I'll usually opt for something sweet. We've gotten into the bad habit of ordering Insomnia Cookies on Seamless [oops!]. We also love popping some popcorn--we buy rainbow kernels from our local farmer's market. We even have cute popcorn buckets.
How do you wind down and prep for bed? Joe and I are TV junkies, which is funny given that we don't even have cable. We use chromecast to watch all our favorites on Netflix, Hulu, and HBO. It's also great because we can cast shows and movies from our computers--hello Amazon Instant Video.  I want to start doing yoga before bed but that hasn't happened yet. 
Cozy up! What are you wearing to sleep? Cute PJs. I'm currently lusting after these!
What are some things you must do before hitting in the hay? I always snuggle our cat, Nutmeg. I kiss Joe goodnight. I'll try to fit some reading in.

I hope you enjoyed a little sneak peek into my daily routines! I now tag Parie of  Class & Glitter and Paule of Paule Mk to do this tag!
