One of my most popular posts was where I covered my favorite beauty gurus whose blogs/YouTube channels I follow every day and are my inspiration for my blog and for my personal makeup purchases! I only featured six in that post, but over time, I have a lot more that I'd like to share with all of you. For now, I'll stick to four, but look forward to a 'Part 3' soon!

Red hair is sexy, fact. This is coming from a proud black-haired girl too! I was possibly around the age of seven when I first watched Who Framed Roger Rabbit with my brother and I remember as clear as day, the first time I ever saw the character of Jessica Rabbit. Sure, with her hourglass figure, she was a knockout; but for me it was her red hair that instantly hit me. Watching it with 25-year-old eyes, it seems the Disney animators were light years ahead of their time: a character with attention-grabbing red hair set in a Veronica Lake style... instant beauty kudos! Thinking about this, I was inspired to write a post about the recent return to red hair; I have listed the stars who I think got it exactly right.

I finally bought my first Sigma brushes! Question is, what was I waiting for? They are as great as everyone says they are. I got individual brushes from various collections (as you can tell, there was a bit of a height difference)!

I first heard about this product about a month ago on one of my favorite YouTube beauty guru's meganheartsmakeup video. I naturally have dirty blonde that keeps fading darker and darker as I have gotten older. Since end of middle school/beginning of high school, I have been getting highlights done about 3 or 4 times a year. Unfortunately, as any of you blondes are well aware of, highlights are expensive! Especially for me because I have long hair, thick hair, and a LOT of layers of hair. While I always straighten my hair and you wouldn't think that it's thick at all, every single hair dresser comments on how much hair I have. For a partial it's about 60 foils...so just imagine a full highlight! I have always liked John Frieda products but have never found a shampoo, conditioner, or spray that I thought actually made my hair lighter or helped to maintain my highlights.

I hope you’re all having a terrific Tuesday :). For a couple weeks now, a few friends and myself have been working on creating the ultimate NYC summer bucket list! We are interns and therefore on a budget too. If YOU have been to NYC, interned in NYC, or live in NYC…I would LOVE if you could share some of your favorite spots or places that you consider a must-see and bucket list worthy. I personally have been to NYC about 7 times with family, friends and for school trips, so I have done the majority of the super touristy activities.
