Want, Need, Wear, Read


Want: Shiseido Future Solution Revitalizing Cream. I'm around this miracle potion at work all the time. It's so tempting to make the ridiculous splurge (there's a special place in Hell for the people who mark up the price of beauty products). I have a good sized sample but that's not going to last forever. I wish I were rich enough to lather my entire body with it. You can truly feel the power of this moisturizer upon first application. It leaves the skin so soft and well nourished.

Need: A 29th birthday present for my older sister. I already treated her to dinner and a comedy show (Anthony Jeselnik- recommend him) but have to find a few other goodies.

Wear: Gucci Premiere. This is lovely for nighttime wear but isn't too overpowering for day. I've worn Guilty for awhile and also love that. Gucci knows what they're doing.

Read: Anything with an interior design focus- books, magazines, blogs, Pinterest, etc... It's my mind's way of prepping for a new place to call home. I can not wait to have my own apartment/condo/house and to decorate it! I miss having my own space more than anything. Living at home is really stifling my sense of self and independence. My interior decor tastes have evolved over the years. When I was younger, I liked anything traditional, ultra feminine and ornate. When I was in college, I was all about the shabby chic motif. Now, I like a mixture of all of those elements along with eclectic touches. I prefer to pull from different styles (contemporary, antique, traditional) and merge them into something that makes little sense. It's all about being comfortable and inviting but unique.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
