Current Obsazzion: Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in “Cocoa Pout”

Lipstick junkies – Brace yourselves. If you’re looking to pucker up to a shade with a moisturizing matte finish then you might want to get your hands on Laura Mercier’s new Velour Lovers Lip Colour. I snagged mine in “Cocoa Pout” and it’s seriously the perfect fall shade for my lips. I never thought a color like this would look so great on my olive skin tone, but I obviously had to think again. I’ve been into wearing warmer hues all season long so I’m glad this one …

Hair Care Tips for Curly, Dry Hair

Beauty Hair Quick Tips | September 22, 2015

I spend a lot of time on the go shooting content for my blog. One of the biggest challenges is mane-taining the MANE! 😉 Imagine washing and styling your hair to perfection. You’re soo happy with it. Then, you head out and spend an afternoon outside (in my case, shooting content for my blog) and suddenly things get frizzy and untamed. The last thing I want to do is go home and wash my hair and re-style all over again. I think it’s safe to say this has happened to all of us at some point. Keep reading for my …

Beauty On-The-Go | Simple Skincare Micellar Wipes

Beauty Reviews Skincare | August 24, 2015

It’s no secret that I’ve been a fan of blogging about beauty and skincare for the past 3-plus years now. Having a blog seriously gives you the perfect excuse to get out of the house, splurge on some new products (without feeling guilty) and discover if it’s an obsazzion worth sharing. Can I get a oh yes girrrl?

I’ve been living out of a suitcase traveling so much lately that I’ve been eyeing products that are easy to take with me to help ease my travel stress. I can’t live without my beauty and skincare products. As many of you …

Day to Night Makeup | Buxom Beauty

Beauty Everyday How-to Tutorials Makeup Nighttime | 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 …

Simple Skincare: Micellar Cleansing Water (Review)

Beauty Reviews Skincare | 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 …

My Skincare Routine (Video)

Beauty Routines Skincare | 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 …
