Day to Night Makeup | Buxom Beauty

Beauty | June 24, 2015

A big problem I run into every time I’m packing for a trip is narrowing down the amount of makeup products I can take with me. The struggle is real! I’m always getting new eyeshadow palettes but I can never take them with me because 1.) they take up too much space, and 2.) I only really use two colors in the 50 piece set. Oops. Regardless, I hate not having options to take with me.

Good news. There’s a solution. I recently learned that one of my favorite makeup brands Buxom has launched their new eyeshadow bar letting you …

Beauty | March 20, 2015

With all the traveling I’ve been doing lately, I’m starting to notice the toll it’s taken on my skin. The airplane always dries out my face and I hate it! I decided to test the waters (pun intended!) by giving Simple’s new Micellar Cleansing Water a try and to hopefully re-hydrate my skin.

I had to do a little research before incorporating this product into my skincare regimen because a lot of ingredients out there can affect my sensitive skin. My biggest fear is breaking out after trying a new product. It’s the worst! However all formulations for Simple Skincare …

Today on my Youtube channel, I shared 10 uses for coconut oil.

My Skincare Routine (Video)

Beauty | December 29, 2014

Today I created this video sharing my skincare routine at the moment! You guys have no idea the love/hate relationship that I’ve had with my skin over the years. I went through an annoying period trying so many at-home products in hopes of getting rid of blemishes and achieving natural glowing skin. It was like a relationship where you invest your time, money and energy into trying to find the perfect match.  I’ve finally found a little regimen I can stick to for a while. I’m 25 so some products I used when I was a teen I’ve had to …
