great and useful advice, thank you. I'm also about to move to a new town and I'm super excited, but also very scared. I am not much of a socialite, so searching for opportunities to connect with locals is key for me!

Great advice! I wish I had read this before moving when I was in college. It would have helped me adjust to my new town so much quicker! @Jamie Welcome to Pittsburgh! I second Summer's recommendation about the Strip District; you can find anything there and the best restaurants are in that area! Also check out the night life in Shadyside; there are a ton of great bars in that area.

Makeup is one of those things that I personally hate to love. It takes time to put on, but the end result can lift up your spirits, and help you feel put together. Read more »

Love this look! It's basically my everyday makeup routine: moisturizer, concealer, mascara. It's very clean & fresh, perfect for the summer.

Post image for Desert Terrariums With Terrain

I love getting the opportunity to collaborate with Terrain. Throughout the year, they host fun workshops at their store in Glen Mills,PA. Only a short drive away from our home office, it’s always a treat when I get the chance to visit the store and work with one of the talented gals who work there. This time, I linked up with Megan, the Design By Terrain Supervisor, for a workshop on how to create the perfect desert terrarium! Read more »

I have a torn duvet cover that I have been holding onto because I adore the pattern, and this post was just the inspiration that I needed to find a repurpose for the fabric. Thank you for the lovely ideas!

Post image for Natural Tips For Clear Skin

Acne. It’s just something that happens when we’re younger. It’ll go away on it’s own. Right? But on my 26th birthday, when my acne of 13 years was at its worst to date, I must say… I begged to differ. Read more »

-Jul 22, 2014, 6:22PM
You don't know how much this post helped me. I have struggled with acne since I was eleven or twelve years old and am now sixteen years old. It would go away for a while, then flair up and be so bad that I would be totally upset and cut myself off from even going out if I could prevent it. Right now my face is in that phase. My cheeks and chin are horribly broken out for the first time in months. The only beacon of light is that I can cover it up with makeup, but makeup washes off and acne is still acne. I started using Noxzema. It comes in a big blue container, kind of looks gross and like cottage cheese (ew!), and smells like aloe. It's used for sunburns, too. And after a few weeks, the little acne I had did go away. I didn't have much of it, just some pimples here and there that I wanted to get rid of. But recently, my face has been breaking out... EVERYWHERE. I have naturally sensitive skin and even break out on my back and chest, too, but I have never been as badly broken out as I am now. I thought it was hormones, because I'm still growing up and what not. But this is really bad and nothing is helping. Dermatologists, doctors, home remedies, the whole nine yards. I stumbled on this blog while looking for fashion advice (ironic, huh?) And upon looking on these blogs, I am so fortunate for doing so. My diet is literally filled with dairy. I even drink an extra glass of whole milk in the morning because I am calcium-insufficient. Seriously, I eat yogurt, ice cream, you name it. I am going to try removing dairy and sugar from my diet for a few weeks and see how it works out. I am excited because it also gives me an excuse to stop eating junk (I know, any reason is a good reason, but I am a chocolate fiend). I am anticipating that it'll work out because, like most of the commenters, I have had acne horribly for my whole life. Everyone is different, but if anyone's skin is as bad as mine and cutting dairy out of their diet worked for them, I'm hoping it'll work for me. If all else fails, I will try some of the oils that everyone listed. The chemicals from all of the ointments and topical treatments I've used - prescription pills and ointments, home remedies, and substances from the pharmacy - have hurt my skin so badly.... On that note, does anyone know oils that would help with scars? Thank you...
Mimi -Jul 18, 2014, 1:38PM
NEEM OIL IS THE BEST! It's naturally antibacterial and it almost completely cleared up my skin in a couple days. Whenever I don't use it for a couple days I break out, but then when a go back to using it every night my skin is clear. It's the oil pressed from the Neem evergreen tree, and surprisingly it smells super weird, but totally worth it. You can find organic neem oil at Whole Foods.
