Happy 2019, my loves! 2018 was the year of apologies, so instead of apologizing for being MIA again, I’m going to promise to post more this year! Now that I’m a college graduate (just typing those words made me shiver), I’ll be using the time that I would usually be spending on homework on the blog! Please hold me to that promise.

I hope everyone had an awesome New Year’s Eve! I spent mine with friends that I haven’t seen in a long time, which made me really happy. I’m usually not a big fan of New Year’s Eve, so it was really nice to start the new year off right!

I’m also a huge fan of my New Year’s Eve look! I wore this black crop top and little black skirt, neither of which I’ve worn in a long time. It was nice to take them out for a spin! At first, I wanted to go super glamorous, but I ended up keeping things pretty lowkey. I straightened my hair and kept my makeup pretty neutral, except for my lip color, which was a darker pink. I’ll be sharing a review of it soon, so stay tuned!

What was your favorite memory from 2018? Let me know in the comments!

top (by Nothing Sacred). bralette. shorts. sneakers. perfume. sunglasses (mine are lighter).

Happy Tuesday, angels! I hope your weekend was fantastic. I just got back to Boston for my last Orientation! I can’t believe how fast my time at Emerson has gone. I feel so old. I’m excited to start getting back into the swing of this school year. I miss being busy and seeing all the people I love!

This look is another simple one featuring a top I don’t wear enough! I got it from my cousins, and it looks so great with my bralette. It’s another top that I can wear differently depending on how I drape it. It’s made of pretty thin material, so this is a great top for these hotter days.

I wore my black shorts and black Converse, and let my hair down. I also wore Killer Queen, one of my favorite fragrances from Katy Perry, and my wood sunglasses.

bodysuit (no clue, so sorry!!!). shorts (no longer being sold by Urban Outfitters). sneakers. perfume. lipstick (in Sanctuary).

Happy Thursday, my loves! I hope your week is going well. If not, I’m sorry, and I hope things get better soon. This look is as carefree and lit as I hope you get this weekend! I wore this look to a party we had at our apartment recently. It was the day I got my septum re-pierced, so I wanted to look badass and cool.

I’ve been in love with this bodysuit ever since my cousin gave it to me. It’s so comfortable, especially to go out in. The mesh makes it a little edgy, but the rest of the bodysuit is so simple that it’s the perfect amount of ~scandal~. I also wore these shorts that I obsessed over last week. The cut works perfectly. I love wearing higher waist cuts with bodysuits like this because it really accents my figure. I topped off the look with my black Converse.

I also wore!!! makeup!!! I went kinda dark because why the heck not?! This Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick will always have my heart tbh. I left my hair pretty normal; since I left my hair in a messy bun for most of the day I got a cute lil curl :’)

What are your exciting weekend plans?! Let me know in the comments!

happy august!

top (similar). bralette. shorts (no longer being sold by Urban Outfitters). sneakers. perfume.

Hello, beautiful people! Happy August! I’m so excited to share this look with you all because I love it so much. I’ve loved this top ever since I got it from Serengetee last year! It looks so cute with this bralette. You can kinda switch things up in a way, depending on how you wear it. I’m a fan of leaving one strap hanging, or pulling the neckline down to show my bralette if I want. I’ve been trying a little bit of both lately, and playing around with a higher neckline and more of a crop top. No matter how you wear it, this top is adorable. I love the pattern so much, and it makes me so sad that they're not offering it anymore! But I linked a couple similar patterns if you click the link under my flatlay ;) 

I’m also pumped because my roommate borrowed these shorts and just gave them back to me! I forgot I had them, to be honest. But I’m so happy I have them back in my life! The cut is very interesting. They’re high-waisted, which I love, obviously, but and very tight at the top, which I also love, but makes things difficult when you’re pulling your pants down to pee. I have a big butt! They’re also a little short, but I just love the way they look. They’re a really cool material too. I honestly don’t know how to describe it, I hope you can kind of tell from the photos. And they have pockets!

I topped this look off with my black Converse and some curly hair! I left my wet hair in a messy bun for a couple days and I got all cute and curly. I milked it for as long as I could!

Hello hello! I hope your week is going well. It’s almost the weekend!

Today, I’m wearing this awesome Judas Priest shirt and my black denim shorts. As most of you may already know, my dad raised me on heavy metal, and Judas Priest has always been one of his favorites. So, he got us all tickets to see them when they came to Long Island! We had floor seats, and it was legendary. They’re awesome.

I bought this shirt outside the venue. A man pulled it out of his pant leg. It’s lit.

Last but not least, I wore my black Converse, wood sunglasses, and Killer Queen by Katy Perry. I went makeupless as usual these days, and let my hair go natural. I love when it’s wavy but not frizzy, like this!

Are you a fan of any metal bands? Let me know in the comments!

sweatshirt. shorts. sneakers. sunglasses. perfume.

Hello hello hello! Happy weekend! Is it just me, or has this week gone insanely slow?! I’m happy to be back home on Long Island for a little to relax, eat some pizza and bagels, and spend time with my family and my dog.

I’ve been obsessed with this sweatshirt since I got it! I purposely asked for a massive size because I knew I wanted to bury myself in it all the time. I think part of the reason I love big bulky clothes like this and my flannels is because I’m cozy enough that I could almost curl up into a ball and take a nap if I wanted to!

For this look, I technically forwent (forgoed?) pants, but I’m actually wearing shorts underneath. In a dream world, I wouldn’t be wearing pants at all, but this sweatshirt is juuuust short enough that I need something to cover my butt. I finished off this look with my black Converse and wore Killer Queen by Katy Perry.

foot petals' technogel tip toes!

Cruelty-FreeKristenComment

A couple weeks ago, Influenster sent me a bunch of cool stuff for me to review, so today I’m sharing Foot Petals’ Technogel Tip Toes with you all :’) I was so excited they decided to send me these because the balls of my feet always hurt, especially when I wear heels. I decided to test these out when I was going to a frat party in 5-inch heels. I was so surprised at how good they felt immediately!

The sweet spot for these guys, which provide a ton of support for the balls of your feet, is the little space between your toes and the top of your foot. As I walked, I felt like I was getting a mini massage! When my feet slid forwards in my shoes, the balls of my feet hit into the squishiness of these gel inserts. My feet barely hurt the next morning!

My only complaint about these is that my pinky toes really hurt. I felt like all of my toes were being supported except them, which kinda sucked since they were already rubbing against the sides of my shoes. Thankfully, Foot Petals makes Pressure Pointz spot inserts that look like exactly what I need. I definitely trust them after trying these out.

The webpage also says that these can be transferred from shoe to shoe, but when I tried taking them out of my heels, they felt really sticky. I was afraid I’d rip them. I was also afraid that I wouldn’t be able to find the exact spots I liked in those shoes again.

Overall though, I’d definitely recommend these to anyone. They made a significant difference in my night out. If you have any heels or shoes that really irritate you, try these out before ditching them!
