(Video) My New Beauty Expert Reel

I’m so excited to share my new (and very first!) reel!  As most of you probably know, this project has been a long time coming and I’m excited to share the final result with all of you.  I feel very lucky to have had such amazing opportunities both professionally and, of course, also in my personal life.  My blog and, now, my career make me happy every. single. day. and that’s something to celebrate.

1. COVERGIRL Flamed Out Mascara (from their Hunger Games collection!)

3. Mitch Stone Essentials Lustre Drops

My latest piece for Shape.com: Healthy One-Pot Meals


Many of you might know that I recently started freelancing for Shape.com and it’s quickly becoming a big obsession for me, e.g. researching and learning about healthy recipes.  Yes, I said it.  The girl who literally never cooked anything aside from pasta (until maybe four years ago) is now writing articles about COOKING.  It’s a big accomplishment for me, both as a writer AND as a 30-year-old who used to literally live on NYC Chinese takeout and salads from Chipotle.  Ok, so I still probably get salads from Chipotle at least twice a week (they are GOOD, guys), but at least now I can feasibly make simple and healthy things for myself.  Case and point, THESE recipes for healthy one-pot meals.  Tell me, what are your easy go-to meals?
