Just For Kicks


I am so picky about blue denim — in fact, I never wear it considering I have such a hard time finding a fit, style, and wash that I like. Last week I tried these on simply to try and determine my size in Madewell's similar black version (that my local store was out of). I ended up loving them and buying them. 💙 photos by Allen Samuel Lee

California


I just returned home from yet another wonderful trip to California. Per usual, I stayed in Los Angeles. As a change of pace, I went out to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree to get out of the city. Have I every told y'all how much I love the desert?

Lazy Sunday


Lazy Sundays spent in leggings, a sweatshirt, and some coffee are pretty much my favorite way to spend a day off.

How do you Self-Care?


My schedule has been non-stop this year — between work and everything that's going on in the world, I think self-care is important. For me, it's the little things: I love sheet masks. I love doing my nails. And I love coffee. When I go to LA, I always stock up on a ton of masks in Little Tokyo. Recently, I saw a friend of mine post about Facetory, which is a subscription box for Korean sheet masks. I figure I would give it a try and opted for the $15/month package. I've become so bored with regular subscription boxes (aside from Scratch Monthy Mani of course!) that I'm elated to find this and have some exciting mail each month.

You've Got Nail 68 // Valentine's Day


I took a break from my regular Scratch MMK wraps to resurrect some old ones from my collection. I wanted to make some fun and colorful nails for Valentine's Day, so I used their Popsicle Puddle wraps combined with a heart design.

You've Got Nail 67 // Scratch January Box


I'm already a big fan of turquoise and gold together, so Scratch's January box was a nice breath of fresh, springy air for what has otherwise been a very grey January. Click through to see the details of the three sets I made with these fun wraps!

Cloud Nine


I'm so excited to share my new career with y'all. Starting in February, I will be offering microblading services at Chicago Tattoo Company. I'm so excited and humbled to have this opportunity and I can't wait to give everyone some beautiful brows! Aptly dubbing my services as Micro Penny, you can sign up for appointment notifications on the website. I'll be giving you more details as the time nears!

The Grommet Dress


I swoon over the Mugler grommet dresses from a few years ago (Pre-FW15 & FW15), but they're obviously far out of my price range. There are plenty of inspired dresses out there, but this particular one struck me because the material feels like a soft pair of fleece-lined tights. Even though this dress is sexy, it's comfortable and heck and is keeping me warm today.
