Look I get it, I’m a consumer too. And let’s be honest, the internet makes it rough.

Here are some product reviews that give you insight into quality, functionality and beauty from a shopaholic’s perspective.

While fashion takes a big step towards minimalism and a less is more mentality, there are certain categories of style that are doing just the opposite. Namely, jewelry. From layering multiple gold chain necklaces to stacks of rings, more is definitely more. Say hello to an opulent, edgy mode of dressing your ears. Stackable ear cuffs. photography:ME | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | ear cuffs c/o:MAISON MIRU Dating back to a much more primitive era in history (as early as 2000 BC), the ear cuffs trend is a way to stack up the gold (or silver) in a less obvious direction. The look is avant grade and fierce, a perfect match for women who aren’t afraid of leaving a lasting impression. But, before you’re ready to take the plunge on multiple lobe and cartilage piercings, there is a way to try the trend with a little less commitment – it’s called the ear cuff.

lively bra review

more than body positivity with a LIVELY bra review

A couple weeks back, I was contacted by a team working with LIVELY interested in a collaboration featuring a review of their bras. I’ve sometimes been apprehensive working with bra, lingerie or swimwear brands, but something about their “made by women for women” grabbed my attention. Before I get on my soapbox, let me tell you a bit about the brand. LIVELY’s mission is to create a line of comfortable lingerie that empowers women. They believe women are sexy, smart and healthy, and they’ve developed a line of lingerie blurring the lines of lingerie, activewear and swim to fit into the modern woman’s lifestyle. LIVELY bras are comfortable, sexy and affordable First off, mission accomplished. I received two bras from LIVELY – The Lace Strapless and The All-Day Deep V bra. Both are truly so comfy, I was genuinely impressed, and very excited to get started on my LIVELY bra review. I almost never wear bras (sorry mom). But I’ve just become a convert. Up top is The Lace Strapless which is honestly great not …
