Los-Angeles-Weekend-Trip-8Earlier this month, I visited Los Angeles with two of my blogger besties, Ashley of Ashley Brooke Nicholas and Michelle of Mash-Elle. We planned a trip to California to attend Create + Cultivate, a conference for female entrepreneurs in the digital space. Aside from being excited for the conference (and the chance to see Jessica Alba in real life), I was really happy to be spending time with the girls in one of my favorite cities.

Brought to you in partnership with European Wax Center.

When you hear European Wax Center, I bet you automatically envision their hundreds of locations all over the country. What you may not know is that they have an incredible line of products, ranging from exfoliators to lotions to an entire collection of brow products. The Strut 365 product portfolio exceeded my expectations, and I discovered so many products that I am eager to use throughout the summer months.

It wasn’t until recently that people began seeing blogging as a viable career option. Being in such a unique, exciting profession definitely has its upsides. I get to set my own hours, work on projects I truly feel passionate about, and do what I love every single day. However, at the end of the day, blogging is still a business, and there are many responsibilities that go along with it. Like any other business, blogging requires paying taxes. However, blogging has a unique set of deductions that even some tax professionals don’t know about. I recently had the opportunity to take the e-course, “A Course About Money for Fashion and Beauty Bloggers”, created by Erin Armstrong, and I finally feel like I am keeping my blog’s finances in order, the right way. I can’t tell you how many times I have searched “accounting for bloggers” or “blogger taxes” with little or no relevant results.

It seems every weekend for the next two months I have some sort of event to attend. Between weddings, graduation parties, and other family celebrations, my social calendar is packed. Aside from deciding what to wear and picking out gifts, I’ve also been brainstorming fun beauty looks. I love taking photos when I’m celebrating with family and friends, and I don’t want the same boring hairstyle and make-up look in every single picture. Today, in partnership with Target, I will be sharing two fun hairstyles and a few of my favorite event-ready make-up products, perfect for your next celebration this spring and summer!

I feel like it has been so long since I rounded up my favorite products. With spring upon us, I thought it would be the perfect time to share all of the latest and greatest make-up items I have been using. You’ll notice I didn’t include any lip colors, and that’s because I have an entire round-up coming to the blog soon all about my current favorite lip products. Yes, I am loving so many lipsticks that they require their own post. Now, let’s jump into my favorites…
