Power Couple: Under-Eye Magic

Several weeks ago I wrote about a mighty power couple.
Today I am back to write about another one.
This time the focus is on our under-eye area.
As a full-time employee and full-time student, you can pretty much assume that sleep is a little hard to come by (unless I procrastinate and decide to take a nap, of course).
Busy days + long task lists + no sleep  = recipe for dark under-eye circles (and waking up late often).
Therefore, under-eye concealer is an absolute necessity for me!
A serious must-put-on-before-I-leave-the-house step for me.
You can imagine how many concealers I’ve tried in my many years. However, they have all simply been average compared to a recent product I’ve tried.
With the recent 20%-off sale at Sephora, I decided to finally try a concealer that I’ve had my eye on for a while but couldn’t justify purchasing it until I’ve run out of my current concealers. Since it was 20% off this past weekend, I justified my purchase of the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer. Along with it, I thought I’d purchase a powder made especially for the under-eye area, the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening powder.

Apple of my Pie

I hate the cold weather. Absolutely despise it. However, there is one good thing that comes with the transition to the fall season - apple pies! I try not to bake any during the other months in the year because I feel as though it's not the same as having some in the fall. However, now that fall is here, apple pies are a common occurrence in my home. 
In fact, this past weekend I may have gone a bit overboard...
Like three pies baked within 24 hours kind of overboard. 
But they all disappeared in three days, so they didn't go to waste. 
Plus, they inspired this blog post!
After I baked, the idea hit me that I should share these delicious recipes with you!

Answer to Your Mascara Prayers

Ladies, today I am going to share with you a product that you have all been praying for. 
Dramatic much? No, I am being very serious here. 
This product will revolutionize your eyelashes. 
Now, you may say "What eyelashes?"
Don't worry, girl, you'll know what I'm talking about once you try one beautiful mascara.
I lie to you not, it is unlike any that I have used from the drugstore or Sephora.

Highlight of my Morning

Who doesn't love a pick-me-up at the start of their day? Especially in the mornings!
Some like coffee, some life to work out, some like whatever else it may be that brightens their mornings (sorry, ran out of ideas). 
I have grown to absolutely adore a little bit of highlighter in my morning routine!
(With a cup of coffee, of course!)
