Look I get it, I’m a consumer too. And let’s be honest, the internet makes it rough. Don’t get me wrong, I love shopping online, but sometimes that ‘nude’ sweater you got on final sale turns out to be hot pink, and so not what you were looking for. If you’re in the market to discover some cool new brands or just want to know how that sweater actually looks and feels in real life, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some product reviews that give you insight into quality, functionality and beauty from a shopaholic’s perspective.

Tomorrow mattress-in-a-box review

Anyone else been wondering what’s up with these mattress-in-a-box phenomenons? I’ve partnered with Tomorrow to provide you a review and show you exactly what that’s all about, and what you can expect when unboxing your memory foam hybrid mattress. Tomorrow is one of the iconic sleep-support brands providing sleepers with an easier solution to mattress shopping – mattresses delivered in a box, straight to your door. (I live in a third-story apartment, so I can’t express how much easier that makes life for me). photography:KRISTINA PETRICK & KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | memory foam hybrid mattress and accessories c/o:TOMORROW   Unlike their competitors, Tomorrow not only specializes in easy delivery, their business model is centered around providing a sleep-experience, rather than just a mattress. “We believe the better you understand what you do while you sleep, the more you can improve how you feel when you step out of bed”. – Tomorrow With that principal in mind, they have studied the connection between engineering and sleep environment and their affect on a …

This year, it was time for an upgrade with some new nature prints and warmer textures for the fall season. Let’s start with the living room.

bite me | Bite Beauty amuse bouche and lip pencil review

Looking for a luscious shade of lipstick for fall? There’s nothing that makes a bold statement of the change of seasons like a deep, burgundy lip and a confident stare. Introducing Bite Beauty’s amuse bouche and lip pencils – gifts from the Bite Beauty squad. photography:KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | bite beauty amuse bouche and lip pencils c/o:BITE BEAUTY Let’s start with the lipstick. Amuse bouche has 34 creamy, high-impact shades, handcrafted for “extreme moister, sublime texture, and incredibly creamy wear.” – Bite Beauty. What I love about it – a single swipe reveals flawless color in a low-glass (matte) finish. Packaging is minimal and modern, and the equally matte encasing keeps your fingerprints from smearing on the tubes. I used to avoid lipstick due to many brands’ drying properties once in contact with skin. But Bite is different. The formula includes 12 nourishing oils that are designed to leave your lips as plump and hydrated as they started (if not more). Unlike other hydrating formulas like tinted balms, there is no …
