    Lipstick Lookbook: Besame Cosmetics

    Happy Friday! Today I am excited to share three looks using Besame Cosmetic’s lipsticks. They kindly sent me three of their most popular shades, and I am happy to say I adore them so much!

    Six Easy Retro Ways to Wear a Headscarf

    So I don’t think any of these are particularly creative, but I am constantly being asked how I tied a headscarf, how I got my hair to do that, how I keep them on, what my favorite ways are to wear headscarves, and pretty much any other question you could ask about the thing on my head.
