Staying Up All Night at the Thompson with Origins

Staying Up All Night at the Thompson with Origins

Last week, I finally did something that I was in dire need of for a long time – a staycation. As a marketer and blogger, I’m literally working 24/7. When most people get to wrap up work at 5 and head out to hang with their friends, I rotate from my 9-5 to my 5-9. I’ve never been one to stop working since lack of productivity leaves me feeling anxious. Though this may appear to be a positive trait for some, I sometimes feel like it’s a curse. I’m always left hunting for the next thing and I never give my body the rest and relaxation it deserves. So when Origins approached me to join them on a staycation at the Thompson Hotel, I knew that naturally I deserved it!

1 Red Lip: 7 Different Budgets

Valentine’s Day is probably one of the few times of the year that I willingly rock a red lip. Other than that, you’ll most likely see me with some sort of mauvish nude or brown shade. I honestly can’t keep track of how many different brown lippies I own. All are the same varying shade but from different brands. So if you’re anything like me, red can be a little intimidating. Whether it’s the finish, lasting power, or even the price tag, it can be hard to lock down the perfect product.

An #MDVPHoliday Staycation

December 21, 2016

We are mere days away from Christmas, which means tons of time off with friends and family. I know that this time of the year can be quite chaotic for everyone (heck I always feel like a chicken running around with its head cut-off), so what better way to destress than to plan a little staycation in the city? Team #MDVP (Mel, Dave, Vic, and Peter) decided to go on a little staycation of our own this past weekend and wanted to share our experience with you. Literally within a weekend, here is how we enjoyed our city at its finest and played “vacay” without ever having to drive outside of the city limits.

Picks From the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale

November 10, 2016

It’s that time of the year again! The Sephora Beauty Insider Sale! If you’re a VIP Rouge member, then you probably had your go at the sale. Since I’m not a heavy Sephora fanatic (though I do enjoy a purchase every now and then), I never quite make it into that echelion. I do however get the chance to partake in the VIB component of the sale – which I assume that the majority of you will too.

This year I wanted to share some of my tried and true products, in case you’re looking for some new recommendations, as well as a small Lust Listt curated selection of products that I’ve had my eye on for awhile and would totally take advantage of the sale to get my hands on them. Let me know what you end up picking up from the sale, and if you have any suggestions that I should check out as well!
