ToGo Beach Drink

Happy Friday!

As it’s my last day on the vineyard I thought I would treat myself to a beachy beverage to sip on seaside. This recipe is super easy and has been a family favorite for a little over 3 years now. Enjoy and drink responsibly!

Taylor Swift Inspired Make Up Look

After completing my last make up look, a million other looks came to mind as ones I would like to share. This second look was inspired by Taylor Swift: bold red lip, cat flick, and barely any other makeup (visible makeup that is). As I’m still on vacation I did the bare minimum number of steps I could to achieve this look so I wouldn’t be wasting any more products than I needed to. I love going out with this look cause it’s super feminine and I always get a “you look like Taylor swift!” comment when I’m out with it, and I definitely take it as a compliment cause she is absolutely gorgeous. Enjoy!

Ten About Me

IMG_4480

As we near the end of July, I’m coming super close to 100 posts on Creme de Boston! And while I have posted a lot about my interests in the fashion, beauty, decor, cooking, and fitness world, I’ve decided to share with you some things about me that lie outside these realms. These aren’t the most important facts about me, they are simply some of the things that make me, well, me. I hope you enjoy and if you share any of these qualities with me, I’d love to know!

1. I hate dirty feet. You will never find me barefoot anywhere but on the beach because the feeling of having things on the bottom of my feet grosses me out like no other.

2. My favorite animal is an otter because they are tiny, and cute, and energetic and are pretty much the puppies of the water.

3. I cannot NOT have my nails painted or else I will immediately bite them off.

4. I could not attend sleep overs until I was in high school because I dealt with extreme homesickness. (I was so embarrassed! but it got better :))

5. I have a younger sister and an older brother and have always loved being a middle child cause I think I have the best of both worlds.

6. Nothing bothers me more than when friends don’t stick up for their friends when they are not there to defend themselves.

7. I sneeze in pairs. I can’t help it, they just come in two’s.

8. If a song has an orchestra playing in it, I immediately like it ten times more.

9. My drink of choice is a dry white wine, preferably from New Zealand.

10. I am very much a glass half full type of person and I know I get this attitude from my dad.

H&M Envy

Anyone who has ever stepped foot in an H&M can probably relate when I say that this store can be really intimidating. While not nearly as crazy as Forever 21, H&M provides its shoppers with endless amounts of clothing which can be a good thing and a bad thing. On the one hand, they probably have whichever specific article of clothing you’re looking for. On the other hand, it’s probably gonna take you about 45 minutes to find it given the tightly packed hangers, maze of a store set up, and numerous wandering shoppers who are probably just as lost as you are.

This is why I shop at H&M online. And after being at the beach this weekend and realizing that I had zero new summer clothing (aka crop tops, shorts, skirts, dresses, etc.), I decided to take a peak. My birthday is in less than a month after all! I DESERVE THIS. Enjoy 🙂

My Everyday Makeup Look

I’ve been wanting to do this kind of post for a while now but given the lack of decent lighting in my apartment and my iPhone being my only camera, it’s been a little difficult. This week, however, I’m on the Vineyard and while I still used my iPhone for pictures, I was able to get some better quality pictures.

I always enjoy hearing about and watching people’s everyday makeup routines and since I’ve had the same everyday makeup routine for a while now, I thought this was the perfect time to share it with you. Enjoy!
