Essential start of your day
Coffee. Lots of it:
Gold or silver
5ft2. I'm a peanut =)
Instruments I play
I am not musically inclined. At all.
Analyst of Demand Planning
The dirty Jersey, close to NYC
People with no manners
Quote from a movie
Right or left handed
Time you wake up
Around 7am for work. On weekends, I want to sleep forever!
Whoa, weird question
Vegetables you dislike
All of them.
What makes you run late
Makeup. Plain and simple
X-rays you've had done
Umm, dental ones?
Yummy food you make
The best animal ever, a giraffe!

I saw this question on Allure.com and it got me thinking - I buy so many products. Like, lots of them. Certain things I get tired of and only use a few times. Other things that I LOVE I will scrape out of the jar/tube like my life depends on it.
- Foundation or base - I'll confess, I hate buying foundation. It's not fun or interesting, it's more of a necessity. Therefore, I use up every last bit of it!
- Mascara - I use my Haute & Naughty mascara from MAC every day. When I ran out a few weeks ago and was forced to use a few others I had laying around, it was torture. If you're used to your lashing looking a certain way, then you start using a mascara that just doesn't do it for you, it's miserable.
- Primers - whether it be the UD Primer Potion, or the MAC Prep + Prime face powder, I always find myself replacing them once they run out. Priming in my mind is necessary if you want your makeup to last longer!
- Eyeliner - black eyeliner (accompanied with a different eye shadow and mascara each day) is my go-to look most days. Replacing it is a must.
- Face toner & Makeup Remover - Again, not the most fun beauty products to buy, but I can't get by without them.

Geeking! Sarah Michelle Gellar looks amazing in these promo photos for her new show, The Ringer. Since my boyfriend and I both have a huge crush on her, we DVR'd the show and are going to watch it later. She's been out of the spotlight for a minute, but I'm so glad she's back! Cruel Intentions, Buffy, what's not to love?

I saw this cool article and wanted to share it with you guys! Enjoy
- If you need to quickly set the icing on a cake, the air and heat of a hair dryer can quicken up the process.
- If your cake won’t unstick from the cake pan, use your hair dryer on the bottom of the pan then invert it, it should drop right out.
- Running an ice cream scoop under hot water helps, but you can also try using a hair dryer on the carton to soften ice cream for easy scooping.
- Some people use pots of boiling water to quicken freezer defrosting, but a hot hair dryer works even more quickly. (Be careful of puddles of water and the dryer, though.)
- Automatic ice-makers can get jammed with frozen ice; relieve that with a long blast of hot air to melt unwanted icebergs.
- Remove contact paper from shelves by heating it with the hair dryer and gently working the edges up. Also works for bumper stickers and other rogue sticky things.
- Use a hair dryer to dust hard-to-dust items; the air will blow the dust somewhere else, but hopefully somewhere else that is easier to dust.
- Personally, I like my kids’ crayon marks on my walls, but for the rest of you: Heat the crayon marks until softened, then scrub with hot water and detergent.
- Old photo albums with magnetic pages can get stuck -- unstick them with a blast from the hair dryer.
- Spot-iron wrinkles by lightly dampening the area and then heating the wrinkles with your dryer.
- Wet boots, shoes, and sneakers can take on a terrible odor if left to dry slowly -- alleviate that by drying them with your hair dryer.
- Winter can bring frozen windows and locks -- thaw them with a hair dryer.
- Window screens collecting dust and pollen? Blow it back to whence it came.
- Removing bandages can hurt more than the wound, so soften the adhesive with a hair dryer first to ease the rip.
- If you have trouble keeping a hot compress hot, keep your hair dryer by you and reheat as necessary.

I’ve had gel nails for a number of years, and loved how low maintenance they were. No chips, no breaking, just a beautiful, shiney French manicure that always looked fresh. As most of you know, I hate sitting there to get my nails done, so going once every 3 or 4 weeks was a dream for me! I got lazy and stopped getting gel nails, and am kind of kicking myself for it since regular manicures chip so easily.
Anyway,Red Carpet Manicure (or RCM for short) sounds like an amazing system! Gel nails at home while I watch trashy reality television? Great! RCM is sold exclusively at Ulta - all of the below items including the LED light can be purchased there. Here are the steps and what you will need:
