Hi, friends and family! I have NOT forgotten about the blog. :D It's been quite hectic these last couple of weeks (all the more reason to post updates when a lot is happening, right?!) and by the time the weekend rolls around, I simply check out and unplug. That being said, some weekends have been abuzz ...
As promised, here are the nude lippies I mentioned in my previous post on no-makeup makeup! The lipstick, lipliner, and lipgloss are all from NYX—a drugstore beauty brand that offers unbeatable value, and, if scent or flavored lippies aren’t a big deal for you, quality that is on-point for the amount you’re shelling out for.

It’s been quiet on the beauty front here on NY Minute Now…that’s because I’ve been a busy bee churning some stories elsewhere on the interwebs. Here are two that I’m pretty stoked about (and quite proud of)! Read about my Beauty & Sparkle and xoJane stories after the jump!
I spent the remainder of the (long) weekend lounging and watching new favorite shows—Forever and How To Get Away With Murder(!)—in lieu of catching up with blog posts, as you can probably tell. :) I did go out of town and spend time with family, which was really nice, and along the way, got to ...
When I first heard about the new food delivery service, Stadium, I didn’t think much of it. For one, it sounded like a logistics nightmare—come on, you can order from SEVERAL NYC restaurants in one delivery?! Fast forward to two weeks, I’ve tried Stadium thrice—and I’m hooked!
