Hey guys! I hope your summer is going good, mine is busy but exciting. In addition to my law clerk job at an IP law firm I am also working as a graduate research assistant at my law school one day a week. I was a little apprehensive about juggling the two at first, but I decided to just go for it. It's been totally fine and I'm glad that I have two great new experiences to add to my resume! After a busy couple of weeks at my new jobs, I decided to go to Sephora and treat myself to two beauty products that I have been lusting over for AGES. These two products are seriously cult classics in the beauty world, and after hearing so much about them I decided to try them out for myself and let you know if they are worth the hype... (Spoiler alert: they are!)

Hey guys! Today I'm going to be talking about a new foundation I picked up a couple of months ago to try. I always try to use a product for at least a month before I review it, just so I can be sure of how I feel about it. As I've mentioned before, I really like the Make Up Forever makeup brand; they are marketed as being a professional makeup line used by real makeup artists backstage at runway shows, movies, circuses, plays, etc. They focus on formula rather than packaging, which I think is a really cool thing and definitely shows through in the quality of their products. I definitely want to buy more from this line, but as of now I only have a cream blush (that I talked about here) and this foundation.

Hey guys! The recent natural skin-care craze is a minefield. Newly burgeoning brands are flooding the market with their organic offerings, promising to deliver the seemingly impossible: amazing results without any of the questionable chemicals used in conventional skincare brands. Unfortunately, while there are some amazing all-natural skincare products out there, some inevitably miss the mark. This post is about two of those products, as you can see from the banner lol.

Recently Alex and I decided to try out Miller Union, a great restaurant in West Midtown Atlanta that specializes in classic southern recipes with a modern twist. Their dishes are very produce-driven, using a lot of locally grown and sustainable ingredients. I heard about them from a CNN article rating the top restaurants in the US, so Alex and I knew we had to try it out!
