#UltraHDGeneration

img_5771As a television news reporter, I have discovered that there is simply no better way to cap off a Wednesday than to come home to a package full of new makeup. I was so excited to try it out that I just couldn’t wait until the morning… and now I’m even more excited to use it tomorrow for work!

I received my Make Up For Ever VoxBox for free – which made it even better – from Influenster. It’s an app I use to learn about new products; I read reviews and answer questions about products I use myself. I’ve never known too much about makeup – it’s been a learning curve for me – so Influenster has helped me to learn about what products work for me and how to use them in different ways.

Thank you Make Up For Ever for the Ultra HD to try!! 🙂

Golden Hour over Manhattan – June 2016

It seems only fitting that one of my last outings as a New Yorker took place during golden hour on top of the tallest building in the United States. I miss the city more and more each day but know I’ll be returning soon enough. All I have left to say about this photo and, frankly, this city is… #AbsoluteChaos.

The doctors tested her for a urinary tract infection, which came back negative. But the results showed that Raelynn had sugar in her urine.

So the Clarks drove quietly to Mount Nittany Medical Center in State College, Pa.

“Raelynn kept asking us for a drink of water in the car,” Angela said. “We had no idea what diagnosis was in front of us.”

Upon arrival at the emergency room, Raelynn had to pee again, so the nurses collected a urine sample.

“Then, the dreaded news came in,” said Angela.

This Guy Created a Reddit Account Because He Looks Like Adam Sandler

My cousin, Max Kessler, looks like Adam Sandler and he’s been told that for his entire life. This week, Netflix released the trailer to the new Adam Sandler movie, The Do-Over. Adam Sandler’s character’s name in the movie? You guessed it. Max Kesler. Missing an “s” but still pretty unbelievable. So Max did what any sane 20-something would do.

A Love Letter

Dear New York City,

Anyone who knows me knows that I have wanted to be here since I learned how to read. And by a twist of fate, some admissions people decided to let me live this dream and well, here I am. I’ve been here for about six months so I thought I would write to you and let you know how I really feel. Continue reading “A Love Letter”
