If This Didn’t Say High Maintenance…

IMG_2011As if I needed to prove to further prove to America how high maintenance I am, I brought I professional makeup case to a tropical, Mexican resort. I couldn’t drink water from the sink or sleep in air conditioning, but I could do my makeup in Broadway style lighting. If there are any straight boys reading this, I assure you I’m not always high maintenance because I know that’s a turn off for you…I just require a lot of work when I want to look pretty. Netflix & chill make-up will only take me 30 minutes to accomplish.

The Bachelor mansion has the most terrible lighting. In addition, there’s only four mirrors for up to 23 girls. I didn’t want to deal with that in Paradise, so beforehand I reached out to Camera Ready Cosmetics and discussed my potential woes. They generously set me up with Just Case’s Black Crocodile Pattern Case with lights.

It has got to be one of the greatest physical gifts I’ve ever received. It fits my extensive makeup collection and it makes me feel organized! No matter whether I’m at home, in a hotel, or in Paradise, I’m guaranteed good lighting to do my makeup in. Also, it has wheels!! An extra bonus…it’s heat resistant so my makeup never melts no matter what the environment, whether that be Mexico or my hot car.

As a true pisces, I live in a magical and delusional land in my head. In this world romances unfold the way they do in romantic comedies, everything at Sephora is free, Shake Shake burgers are a diet food, and we have the capability to clone Harry Styles.

In real life (what's that?), I spend my days pondering how Kylie Jenner's face changed so much. I'm a beauty junkie and pop culture-loving wedding videographer and freelance journalist. I have a Princess Jasmine complex. I am a Fanson (die hard Hanson fan). I enjoy belting old Celine Dion songs.

Please take everything I say seriously (I have my Masters in journalism from Syracuse University), but not too seriously (Cosmo is my favorite publication.)
