Let me start by saying New Orleans has been on my to-visit list since 2010. It's 2015, and so I think that means I should just book a ticket and go, right? In 2015, I want to be more spontaneous. I want to travel, I want to see things, explore, feel more, and be. I know you guys clicked on this post because you wanted to see some food porn, and instead here you are getting emotional word vomit. So, before I digress any further, let me just say, if you've been to NoLa, please leave a comment and tell me to go - what should I see, eat, do? Okay. Now, here's your food porn.

Beauty Bites: bareMinerals' Complexion Rescue

It's that time again - another Beauty Bites post, y'all ready? Here we go. I recently had the pleasure of partnering with bareMinerals to test out their new Complexion Rescue Tinted Gel Cream, which launched just last week. I was really excited to try this because as someone who doesn't use powder or foundation, a light, moisturizing tinted cream is basically about as "foundation-y" as I will get. I know that sounds a little silly, but it's true! While I love what powders and foundations do for the skin, I personally tend to overheat (seriously) when I wear them, so I stick to moisturizers (or BB creams, if I am feeling especially fancy). So, when I was invited to try out bare's newest product launch, I thought it couldn't have been a more perfect fit.

Stacker Style: No Parking

Some days, it's just better in black. (And maybe a touch of leopard and gold, because why not?)

You've undoubtedly seen the photo from what I assume to be the most Instgrammed brunch spot in the city. Have you gotten plowed? Because I did. And it was magical. It was on my list for all of 2014 to eat at this spot, but since it's a little far away from where I live in the city (hey, sometimes you don't want to take the bus for over an hour, okay?) I never found myself able to go. Then 2015 came around and my friend (with a car, hooray!) helped me fulfill my dreams of #gettingplowed. It's a real hashtag, you guys.

Stacker Style: (Pan)cake Cake Cake

pancakeSTACKER Blog
Just some quick snaps in front of my favorite pink wall. I swear this wall is always changing. First it was pink. Just pink. Then it said "Sovereign," (remember these shots?), and now it says "cake." I like to think they knew I'd be stopping by.

Beauty Bites: NUDE Skincare

pancakeSTACKER Blog x Beauty Bites x Nude Skincare

I'm pretty serious about my skincare routine. Last year, I started to up the ante on what I put on and how I take it off. If you must know, I've recently become obsessed with researching and trying new products, and with the cold weather creeping in and out, I've been looking for some gentle products so as to not dry out my face. My latest must-have that's now found a prime spot in my bathroom cabinet? NUDE Skincare. Full disclosure, I've tried two of the three products shown above, but both have made my skin feel and look great. For those of you who may not have heard of NUDE, get ready to for me to give you the 4-1-1.

Baby, I'm Back

I know, I know. Where have I been, right? I've got to tell you guys the honest truth - the last couple of radio silent weeks, I mostly thought about how to continue my blog. I know. Don't get me wrong, it's not you (I love you guys) - it's me (hah!). I was lacking a bit of inspiration (which happens) and didn't want to keep going for the sake of just getting a post up. But, because I just can't quit you, here's a post, so you know I'm still alive and whatnot. I'm still figuring it all out and mostly just enjoying the slow snail pace of it all. Thanks for being patient with me while I get my creative juices flowing...
