Every face is better off with a little glow. But helping me not look like a vampire is only one of the reasons why bronzer is a staple in my beauty arsenal. Would you believe me if I told you that bronzer is actually capable of SO much more?
Think outside the box (er — I mean, compact?) and give these bronzer innovations a try!
1. Eyeshadow: Don’t lug both a bronzer and an eyeshadow palette on your next trip. If you use a bronzer with shimmer, like MAC Mineralize SkinFinish in Gold Deposit, it’ll look great as an eyeshadow too. There’s even a few different shades of gold so you can layer. Just bring your eyeshadow brushes with you!
2. Eyeliner: If you use a matte bronzer in a deep brown color (like Too Faced Chocolate Soleil), it can double as a brown eyeliner — ideal for women with blonder skin and lashes. Run an eyeliner brush under warm water and then dip it into your compact.
3. A Push-up Bra: Contouring for boobs — basically. Rub a fluffy, chubby brush covered in bronzer all over your cleavage. Focus the bronzer on the space in between each breast. Creating shadows makes then seem bigger and your cleavage darker. A favorite trick of mine. Selena Gomez does it well above.
4. Bronzing Body Lotion: Loose bronzer powder mixed with any lotion gives you homemade tinted moisturizer. Trublend Minerals Bronzer by CoverGirl sprinkled on top of a handful of Olay Total Effects Body Lotion = the perfect recipe. Yay for your body looking instantly tanner without paying oodles for St. Tropez!
It ain’t called Mario’s Big Pizza for nothin’. At this Italian pizzeria, all slices are cut from 24″ pies: gigantic, fairly thin crust and smothered in tangy tomato sauce and cheese. Mario’s does a Northerner proud.
Plus they have two locations in Winston-Salem… so why not?

Didn’t think ricotta ravioli could be any more delicious? Same.
But then, three months ago, I tried the Egg Yolk Raviolo at Trattoria Monti in Monti, Rome. Literally a pasta dough doughnut plump with oozy eggs and cheese. I can almost taste it now.

I am thrilled to announce that I am the newest (and first!) Beauty Contributor for Gritstyle.com — musings, beauty, life & style.
What does this mean? It means, that for the next few months, we’ll be delving into delicious beauty treats. Well, I’ll test products over a period of four to eight weeks, keep a daily beauty journal and then write candidly about my experiences. Those reviews will be posted in the Beauty section on Gristyle.com. You’ll read ‘em and tell me what you think.
Anyone who knows me knows that this is a dream gig. I am so excited and thankful to Alex & B at Gritstyle for this opportunity! My first article went live on Monday: A Sleek Black Tube & a Sexy Red Wand.
And ate this massive BD All American Burger dripping with House Made mustard, ketchup and American cheese. Again.
I could eat the Fresh Rotisserie Turkey Sandwich from Dioli’s for lunch every day. And probably dinner, too.

I was in the mood for some summer classics — the stuff you’d scarf down at a family BBQ. Hot dogs were the immediate choice. Biting into one takes me back to blissful, childhood days by the pool. Fitting enough, … Continue reading
I’m headed back down to Wake Forest tomorrow. I can’t believe my senior year starts Monday. I’m hoping it’ll be filled with exciting opportunities, an eventual job and of course, some fat and fabulous food.
My final 24 hours at home are always a race against the clock. By that, I mean me racing around trying to eat at as many of my favorite Montclair food joints as humanly possible. Since I woke up around 11 a.m., breakfast was surprisingly boring (I ate Kashi in my kitchen). No worries though — lunch made up for it.
I had my favorite Greek wrap (lemon grilled chicken, feta cheese, black olives, lettuce, tomato and onions smothered in tzatziki and rolled in a spinach tortilla) from Jackie’s Grillette. And in true Jersey girl style, I bought a Dunkin Donuts Hazelnut iced coffee to sip alongside. I’ll miss you, Jackie’s. I’ll miss you so.
Now, I’ve got to go help my dad grill the jumbo Thuman’s hotdogs he grabbed from Nicolo’s for my last supper. And wait ’til you see what’s for dessert…Holsten’s is involved…pictures later or tomorrow.
