Starbucks Copycat Green Tea Frappuccino


by Caroline Hurley
Sometime around Halloween I tried a sample of a Starbucks drink called a Franken Frappuccino. It was amazing.  The drink was a combination of a green tea frappuccino with mint syrup and mocha chips. I didn't know that green tea frappuccinos were a thing but apparently you can order them all the time. Which is great because I wasn't all that interested in the chocolate chips anyway.  I'm trying to be an adult after all and something about chocolate chips in my morning beverage just doesn't make Read more [...]

Tinted Moisturizer Hack


by Caroline Hurley
I'm all about simplifying my life and this holds true when it comes to my make up routine. I'd rather limit myself to five great products than ten okay ones. By now we're all familiar with the tinted moisturizer, bb cream, cc cream, (is there a dd cream now?) craze. I really like the concept of these products.  Since I work from home there isn't a need for me to have full on make up or hair done every day. BUT I feel better about my day if I make a small effort with my hair and make up Read more [...]

An Office Update


by Caroline Hurley
Have I told you I love my apartment? Well I do. I'm trying to cherish this stage in life because things are going to change big time in 6 months!

On top of this blog I work from home so it will Read more [...]

Quick and Easy Waves with a Curling Iron


by Caroline Hurley
  Who doesn't love having their hair look nice? I always feel so much better when I take the time to do something to my hair instead of throwing it up in a bun when its wet. It is definitely a time commitment but it makes me feel much more put together. I typically spend less time messing with it throughout the day if I do it right the first time. In this post I show you how I get quick and easy waves with a curling iron. My hair is naturally thick and frizzy. So not fair. ESPECIALLY Read more [...]

Fall Decor


by Caroline Hurley
I love the beach. I love the beach pretty much year round. I would say that I kept that in mind when I decorated my apartment. I love the beachy art that I made for the apartment last spring but it started to feel a little out of place this fall. I wanted to stay true to the coastal color palette that I love while giving the apartment a very budgeted update for fall decor. Thankfully this project only cost about 10 dollars because I have so many art supplies around from high school and I only had Read more [...]
