Daytime Inspiration: Coffee Face Scrub

My newest beauty regime includes something a little less conventional. Not the typical drugstore beauty product, but something a little more shall I say, homemade. 
Many of you know me as the not so much DIY-er but the - if I can put it in the microwave versus oven, then sign me up - type of girl. I do love sifting through Pinterest looking for what others have created on their own, but most of the time I say oh thats nice and retreat to pinning a pair of Louboutins to my Shoe Porn board.

Is it a Pile of 'Stuff', After All?

"You go to your closet and you select... I don't know... that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise. It's not lapis. It's actually cerulean. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent... wasn't it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff." -  Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep)

Oh the places you'll Go

Not only am I studying abroad in Florence, Italy. I am also studying abroad in all the countries that I travel to over the 5 months in Europe. Whether my studying comes from my classes or about the cultures, I am experiencing all sorts of unique differences all around the world.
