Monday, March 31, 2014



 First, I think you all should know that every morning before class I grab a McCafe Vanilla Iced Coffee! It has the perfect balance of cream and sugar and literally just makes my day. Without it, I'm a perfect mess.  It's also really quick and part of my on-the-go student lifestyle.

There are two types of people in this world, people that drink coffee and people that don't. Most New Yorkers NEED their morning coffee. 

That being said, I have two major announcements!! 

Announcement #1:

McDonald's is having a Free Coffee event! From March 31, 2014 to April 13th, 2014, McDonald's will be serving FREE small premium roast coffee during breakfast hours. So don't forget to take advantage of this opportunity! Save a few dollars, and ENJOY your McCafe coffee!

Announcement #2:
McDonald's is also hosting Year of Free Coffee!
Starting mid-April, McCafe will surprise a Twitter follower every day this year with McCafe coffee and prizes!

In order to win free coffee for a year you must tweet pictures of your free McCafe coffee with #McCafe and #FreeCoffee hashtags!



This post was created in partnership with McDonald's. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The Body Shop Fall and Holiday Event//

Last week I had the pleasure to attend The Body Shop Fall and Holiday event with my dear friend Bryce Gruber (The Luxury Spot.) What I expected was to go and view new products that would be launching soon as I usually do, but this time I was in for something a bit different. Check out this girl below:

  • Emily-Anne Rigal, founder of We Stop Hate, helps The Body Shop launch their Dragon Fruit Lip Butter - changing the world for good.
While sitting down in what looked like classroom desks, I was excited to be introduced to all new The Body Shop goodness but along with that, Emily stood in the front of us and started talking about We Stop Hate. With ADHD and my funny friend Bryce sitting next to me, I can barely pay attention to anything, SHE grabbed my attention. Emily spoke about how she was severely bullied to the point where she had to switch schools. I felt like I could relate to her and shared my story with her and the rest of the class as well.

Emily helped release this amazing product called Dragon Fruit Lip Butter! I now own it and it's really great. I noticed it helps my lipstick color last longer while applying the lip butter on top of my lips. It's only $6 and it helps support charity so click the link above and buy it!

Along with many other new products that I received, I'm obsessing over the new HONEYMANIA line (launching Sept. 16th!)

Here are some facts: 

  • The Body Shop HONEYMANIA (Launching September 16th)
    • Honey is known for its sweet taste and aroma, but it is also a natural moisturizer, known for its ability to soften, smooth, and nourish skin
    • Our rich Community Fair Trade honey comes from the remote Sheka rainforest in Ethiopia – it's the honey we use in our Honey Bronze range!
      • Organically hand-harvested from only the ripest honeycombs, ensuring exceptional, good-enough-to-eat honey that’s rich in nourishment
      • To gather enough honey for make one of every product in our Honeymania range, it takes almost 100 bees traveling nearly 1,300 miles so that they can harvest the nectar from nearly 50,000 flowers.
I tried all the products; they are great!! Prices are well worth it for it's quality.

·     Body Butter - $20
·      Bubble Bath Melt - $14
·      Body Scrub - $20
·      Eau de Toilette - $14
·      Shower Gel - $8
·      Lip Balm - $6
                                                                             ·      Soap - $4
Get it all SEPTEMBER 16 and more at!

Hard Candy

Let me tell you something about makeup, I am the queen of makeup!!! And while I really do not wear a lot, or show off my fine talents via Instagram me and my best friend are always looking for the BEST products. Notice that I didn't say cheap- because in reality, fucking with my skin is something I won't do.

Friday I decicded to drag my ass to Walmart because I have one near my summer home and thought I needed to take advantage of this heaven on earth before I run back to Brooklyn for the next 9-10 months.

FIRST STOP! Beauty isle... I skipped passed Sally Hanson because enough is a fucking nough. Not gonna lie, I got drawn into Hard Candy because of the packaging (yess I judged a book by its cover) but my friend was insisting that it was great shit. Bottom line, I bought a butt load and decided to have a makeup/nail polish party with all my little cousins friends (sorry moms!)


Hard Candy Everything
Literally this stuff is amazing. The nail polish is A++++ and so is everything else. 

Price range on everything $4-$6.. YUP !

Get it all at Walmart and you can also check out!
