Twenty-Sixteen Winter Beauty Haul

I tried to keep my spending to a minimum this past holiday season, but whoops! I ended up splurging on a few beauty products that I’ve been eyeing for some time now and somehow ended with a mini beauty haul. I’m sure you’re all familiar with these products because I hardly buy any newly released cosmetics that have not been soundly approved by major beauty bloggers and YouTubers. High-end makeup is just too expensive for me to “test out”. I would…

One Infinite Loop

Everyone knows that Silicon Valley is the mecca of tech companies. To name a few – Apple, Google, Facebook, Intel, HP, LinkedIn, Netflix, and the list just keeps going. For a non-techie like myself, I only hear stories of what the place is like because it’s so exclusive to those whose lives don’t revolve around the newest software or computer-related trends. And it’s this elusiveness that draws me in and makes me want to visit this special world of nerdiness.…
