The Perfect One Sweep Shade: MAC Sable


I've never been one of those girls that tend to actively avoid eyeshadow; in fact, when I figured out how to do a smokey eye (albeit a rather messy one) when I was around 14 I felt supremely proud of myself. However, when the laziness does set in but I'm still in the mood for a wash of color on the lids I know where to turn: MAC's Sable Eyeshadow.

An Update & A Question


So...it's been a while. I hadn't planned on taking a break if I'm honest, it just happened. And while I'm being honest I might as well say I really enjoyed it. I've made so many memories the past few weeks with my friends and I'm glad I've been making the most out of my summer rather than stressing about posting everyday. However, now as I near the day I leave for college (less than a month--eek!) I've been conflicted.

University Tales: Dorm Room Shopping


Despite most of my friends starting shopping for their dorm/apartment rooms weeks ago--I've held off. I think part of the reason is I just didn't know where to start and it is a bit overwhelming. Because I'm going to New York I really can't bring much up with me. I have to have a lot shipped to my dorm and it doesn't make sense for me to invest in bulky pieces unless we decide to do storage. So, there has been a lot of decision making going on in the Hunter household (read: between my mom and I).

My First Foray Into Freelance Writing


I've made it no secret that it is a lifelong dream of mine to become a writer. I became one step closer to that when I became a contributor for A Little Opulent. If you haven't heard of A Little Opulent already, it is an online magazine full of everything from lifestyle to art to beauty & fashion. It is this versatility and the fact it is run by two bloggers whom I highly admire (Jen from JennyPurr and Rebecca from From Roses) that drew me to the prospect of wanting to contribute.

H&M Wedges


If any of you saw my huge summer clothing haul a few weeks back, you might recognize these wedges from H&M. They're the first shoes I've ever bought from H&M and I'm so happy with the purchase.

Shades of Orange



A few years ago, I never would have thought I'd have one orange shade in my makeup collection let alone four. I've always been more of a pink, peach, or red & vampy girl--not one for bright oranges. However over the past year I've been experimenting with the hue and have four colors I particularly like.

Flawless Face Duo


Right now you're probably thinking OK Amber, enough with the NARS products. But I'm going to squeeze out one more post on them because, hey, they're that awesome.

July Goals & Books To Read


It's a little bit surreal to me that June is already over. It really does seem like I was just writing up my June Goals & Books To Read.
