    Eco-Friendly Alternatives to Self-Care Products

    After writing my Earth Day post with eco-friendly alternatives to common household items, I started thinking about other areas where waste and single-use plastics abound. It didn’t take me long to land on the beauty and self-care section of my life. Beauty and makeup products are notorious for their hard-to-recycle packaging and overuse of plastic, and […]

    Why You Should Be Using CBD Skincare

    We’ve all heard of CBD, or cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive derivative of the cannabis plant. CBD has been touted as a treatment for a variety of ailments, including anxiety, pain, and even seizures. You should know that I am a huge fan of CBD oil. I keep this tincture from Charlotte’s Web on hand and take […]

  • New Year's Eve Makeup Inspo

    Sparkly New Year’s Eve Makeup Inspo

    Yesterday I shared my favorite NYE outfit ideas, but no New Year’s Eve look is complete without proper glam. Similar to how I feel about NYE attire (gimme all the sequins), I think the accompanying makeup should be bold and sparkly. I mean, ya can’t wear this makeup everyday, so leave your “me-but-better” vibes in […]

    How to Make Your Lips Look Fuller Without Filler

    Ok, this is probably one of my most requested blog posts of all time, which is ironic considering I do, in fact, get filler in my lips. I haven’t tackled these topics on my blog yet, but on Instagram I’m very open about all things Botox, filler, skin treatments, you name it (don’t worry, everything […]

    10 Beauty and Self-Care Products I’ve Come to Swear By During Quarantine

    If there’s one thing I’ve enjoyed about quarantine, it’s being able to give my skin and hair a much-needed break. Sure, I miss my hair extensions and makeup as much as the next person, but I can’t deny that my hair has never felt stronger and my skin has never looked better. This is due […]

    How to Make a Cheap Amazon Wig Look Expensive

    If you saw my post yesterday about my Halloween cocktail, you know I’ve recently acquired a pink wig from Amazon. I’ve always been fascinated with wigs, I just love the idea of changing up my hair style as often as I change my shoes. Despite my fascination, I’ve always been too intimidated to delve into […]

    Easy 10-Minute Summer Makeup

    We’re officially in the dog days of summer. The days are long, hot, and in my case, humid. I’m at the point where I will think twice about plans that require me to put on makeup and/or a bra. Basically, anything that doesn’t involve a body of water, an umbrella, and copious amounts of ice […]

    Workout Wear Wishlist

    Does anyone else feel like they’re more motivated to workout if they have cute gear? I’ve been pretty delinquent with my workouts lately (I blame the cold weather), but summer is on its way and it’s time to get back on track. When I get in these funks, I usually look for some snazzy new […]

    At Home Mini Indulgences

    At the beginning of the year, I wrote this post on my goals for the new year. I wanted to set an intention to focus on wellness in 2019, and I personally think “wellness” can mean a variety of different things. One of the things I’ve been trying to do so far is focus on […]

    A Note on the New Year

    Confession: I do not make New Year’s resolutions. My reason is that if I want to do something to improve myself or make a change in my life, I’m going to do it no matter what time of year it is. My belief is that there is never a bad time to better yourself or […]
