The Best Travel Size Products For Your Carry-on and Beach Bag

It’s that time of the year when a number of us will set out on a summer adventure—from traveling to a tropical oasis, taking a trip abroad, to going on a weekend getaway.

I took a lot of things into consideration like personal experience, bang for your buck, and what others are saying.

My Beauty Philosophy: Where I Splurge and Where I Save

The other day my friends and I were having a discussion on our beauty philosophies. We talked about what treatments and products we felt were worth the splurge versus which ones we’d rather save our money on. I couldn’t believe our difference in opinions. This conversation got me curious about what other women think is important enough to splurge on. Here’s my list that covers hair, skincare, makeup, grooming, and extras like self-tanning, and supplements. I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you feel is splurge-worthy, and any tips you have to saving money when it comes to your beauty regime. Hair Care HaircutsRead More →

LED Light Therapy

About two years ago I incorporated LED light therapy into my daily skincare routine at the advice of my aesthetician. I was experiencing breakouts that were leaving purple marks behind and I needed to get rid of them. I asked her what could I do at home to help clear up my skin and prevent new breakouts from developing. She recommended several steps I could take, like using potent serums, DIY lunchtime peels, derma-rolling, and adopting Photon LED light therapy into my skincare routine. Out of these options I have to say the LED is my favorite. It’s safe and easy to use, requires noRead More →

New Beauty Trends to Try This Spring!

When it comes to seasonal trends, I usually put more effort into updating my closet than I do with my beauty routine. This year I did some research and looked for new beauty trends, which lead me to discover so many unique looks I can‘t wait to try. I started with makeup inspiration and fell in love with colorful eyeliner, dewy skin, bronzed cheeks, and rose gold eye makeup. Next up was looking for new hair trends. My go-to style consists of stepping out of the shower, applying leave in conditioner and serum, and then letting my hair air dry. This creates effortless beachy waves,Read More →

cosmetics and beauty

My mornings begin with a cup of coffee while sitting at my vanity getting ready for the day. My job in fashion requires me to look put together at all times so I make sure that the products I choose are going to last.

Lunchtime Chemical Peels

A few years ago I went to my aesthetician because I was suffering from a bad breakout. I assumed I was immune to blemishes since I never had to deal with these issues as a teen. Not only did I need to treat the breakout, but I had leftover purple marks I was looking to get rid of. The aesthetician suggested IPLs which I had already tried, and they are super expensive and only helped temporarily. She she also recommended other things that I could do at home that weren’t invasive: lunchtime chemical peels, derma-rollering, serums, and LED light therapy. I would space them outRead More →

facial serums you need

During the dry winter months it’s important to step up your skincare routine with these three facial serums you need to attain flawless skin–at any age. Lots of people skip serums because they think they’re expensive (some are but not all, and a bottle can last a long time); they don’t know much about them; or they think if they use a good moisturizer with SPF then they’re good to go. Maybe right now, but the goal is to protect your skin so as you get older you won’t develop lines, wrinkles, age spots, and the other tell tale signs of aging. That’s why it’s bestRead More →

Pool Proof Makeup Products

During the hot months I like to keep my makeup routine as simple as possible. There’s nothing worse than walking around or laying out in the extreme heat to feel that my skin can’t breath or to look in the mirror and see that my makeup is smudged and that it no longer looks like how it did when I left my apartment 20 minutes ago. The key in solving this common issue was adopting two makeup routines. One for the everyday summer months and one for when I’m going to be spending the day at the pool or at the beach. The difference betweenRead More →
