About Me

My name is Cassie (rhymes with "sassy"... which is unfortunately appropriate).

I'm a 25 year old college graduate and, because I apparently never want school to end, am now getting an MFA (Master of Fine Arts) in drawing & painting; all so I can be a college professor when I'm finished and continue to inspire others while others in turn inspire me.

This blog is mainly for those wanting to keep "informed" on my new life in Boston (aka watch me grow up simultaneously with my kitten, Galileo) and for those who have encouraged me to start a beauty blog.

With the blogosphere centering mainly on the skinny-minnies out there, I hope to show that fashion and beauty are not products of size. Whether you are a size 0 or a size 20, clothes (and makeup!) CAN look good on you!! I can't begin to express my chagrin in the way media and society put down girls (and boys) based on their size and hope to truly inspire those needing a pick-me-up in self confidence; your insides reflect on the outside, not the other way around.
Luscious ladieeeeees... UNITE!!!

  4. This is kind of creepy... but hell isn't everything! A family friend stumbled across your video on Youtube and swore she thought it was me. Now I am here and we are living the exact same life but I'm three years older. Hopefully soon we will both have MFA's and continue to rock. You with your cat and me with my pug.

  5. Hey Cassie! Discovered you on Youtube last week and now feel my day is incomplete without one of your videos making me laugh. You're hilarious and adorable. I'm also a poor grad student, previous retail monkey. Keep doing what you're doing girl!

  6. I came across your blog accidently and I love it! I then started watching your youtube channel and became inspired :) Not to get too mushy but it's been a rough 2 years for me. Long story short I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease, and had emergency surgery last summer to get an ileostomy. It was very hard on my already low self esteem and confidence. This past March I had my colon removed mean I'm a "baggie" for life. I fell into a deep depression and thought "there's no way i'll ever feel pretty again"... your blog and YouTube channel changed the way I see myself. Thank you! Also I have a kitty I adore and even though I am older than you I feel like we could be friends and hang out. Is that weird? Anyways, thank you x's a milliom for helping me see that I'm perfect just the way I am :)

    1. I am the worst person ever… SERIOUSLY I'M SO SORRY that it took nearly a month to write you back; I promise your words were not forgotten, they just got jumbled in the hectic nature of my life. Thank you so much for writing such a sweet comment to me. I'm so sorry to hear that you went through such a tolling illness but am happy to hear (it seems?) that you are on the mend. You are beautiful because you're YOU and hope no matter how many surgeries you may have you remember that… I can tell you're lovely just from reading your message :) Thank you again for having sent it to me, I'm beyond touched <3

  8. I found your blog through your YouTube channel which I just discovered yesterday and I am so glad that I did! You are so beautiful and I am inspired by your confidence! Watching your videos makes me so happy, because you seem like the most positive and real person. Your blog and videos are refreshing and interesting and I will now probably sit here and watch all of them (in the least creepiest way possible) because I am addicted to your channel and adorable cat. Never stop what you're doing! <3

  9. ok so I was reading a comment on a post of mine in a FB nail polish group. This gal in the group had amazing hair. So I clicked on her profile photo and was sort of stalking her photos because her hair and makeup were amazing. So in one of her photos someone asked what lipstick she had on, and she said it, and said she bought it purely from one of your YouTube videos, and mentioned how amazing you were. So, I clicked the link. I hesitated at first, because I am not a fan of long videos, but I fell in love with you (in a platonic, omg-we-are-makeup-fanatics-and-you-are-a-little-nerdy-like-me way) immediately, and now have spent this whole evening watching your videos! You are my new favorite! You rock. Don't ever change.

    1. oh my gosh how sweet are you??? Seriously thank you SO much, I'm so happy to hear that you found my videos randomly and are enjoying them so far :) Thank you for being wonderful and I can only hope that you continue to enjoy my channel/content in the future <3

  10. I cannot lie when I say that randomly finding your YouTube videos tonight has brought life and color to my life in a time of need. I also am 25 but going through what one would call a quarter life crisis, lol. I have gained a bit of weight over the last couple of years so I have not been high on the self esteem ladder. As of lately this has been getting me down to where I haven't loved things I once did. After stumbling upon your channel and now blog I have a much better outlook thanks to your witty charm and amazing styling tips. (Not going to lie, I went on a binge and watched a lot of your videos). So all I can say is thank you. You may not realize it but you have showed me how to be confident in my skin again and I honey do not know how to thank you. Keep being awesome!

  13. I have been subscribing to your youtube channel and I just wanted to know more about you. I was excited to see you are an artist. I am also an artist and love anything creative. I like blog channels when people are just being themselves. The lipstick video was really cute.

  16. I love your youtube video's (especially the liquid lip ones!) and I stumbled upon this because I wanted to know more about you and I think the thing that shocked me the most was that you live in Boston. Not because of an accent or anything, but because whenever you go out it looks so cold, I thought you lived in Alaska or Canada or something!
    Great to know you have a blog, I'll be checking it out more often :)

  17. I started following you by subscribing to your YouTube channel. You're the best, most real beauty blogger! Watching you is like hanging out with a friend for a few hours and talking about makeup. I didn't even realize you had a blog until I searched Google for reviews on Apple Strudel NYX gloss. Glad to find you (again!).
