Things I Love

Loyal readers, thank you for your patience. Eric and I have been undergoing some major life changes (hello, home ownership), and so blogging has taken a back seat to packing, and cleaning, and moving. Luckily, I need a break from unpacking and there’s nowhere I’d rather be than at my blog. Unfortunately for me, because […]

I’m Looking for A Sleeping Mask

I feel like this has been the longest winter ever, which is weird because the weather hasn’t been THAT bad. Maybe it’s because it’s still January, or maybe it’s just because of who I am, but I’ve been feeling like I need to invest in a nighttime sleeping mask. This summer, right before my wedding, […]

The Perfume Diaries: Pillowtalk Poet

I never really understood the whole perfume craze. Most things smelled pretty and I would gladly wear whatever. I didn’t understand the idea of  signature scents, and perfume samples were my least favorite kind. However, that all changed once I got engaged. It didn’t happen all at once though. In fact, I think it all […]

My Favorite Face Mask (From Hawaii)

Wow, can time fly! It feels like just a little bit ago I was returning from my honeymoon, and then I looked up and a month of the school year flew by. Thinking about my honeymoon made me remember this great face mask that I picked up in Hawaii. I waited to try it until […]

The Perfect Lip Scrub

Right before I left for my wedding and honeymoon, I made a last minute lip scrub purchase. I realized I needed one, but I was having a hard time finding one that looked like it was of decent quality for a decent price. Lucky for me, it was also right around Amazon’s Prime Day. As […]

Bronzing Sunscreen (And A Story)

So this weekend, Eric and I took my youngest sister to a water park. Lot’s of fun ensued. We had a blast. And like all good people, who are deeply concerned with skincare, we reapplied sunscreen regularly. Like a lot. Especially to my little sister. There was no way that I was taking her back […]

My Wedding Lipstick And How I Found My Perfect Color

Hello everyone! I’m so glad to be back writing to you. Don’t get me wrong, my wedding and honeymoon were a blast, but if there was one thing I looked forward to after my wedding, it was getting back to my writing. I owe you all an in-depth wedding post, but guys, I just got […]

A Moisturizer And Serum Combo That’s Good, But Not For Me

So, as I told you all in my last post, I’ve been putting my skin through boot camp, and let me tell you, it’s been working. While it’s great that my skin is seeing results, it’s also great that I’m getting to see what products work best with my skin. For the longest time, I […]

A Face Cream That Actually Does What It Says

OK, ya’ll, my wedding is quickly approaching and I’m so excited. I’m also a complete basket of nerves about getting everything done on time (Oh my gosh, why haven’t I finished the petal cones yet?!). And my skin, unsurprisingly has been acting up a little. I’m lucky that my skin is typically pretty easy to […]

How To Choose Skin Care and Makeup Products That Are Good For You

Hi guys! I’m really happy to say that recently, Hello Giggles published an essay I wrote called “How Skin Care Unexpectedly Led Me To Self-Care.” This essay is so important to me because not only is it a part of an important larger conversation, but also because it also allowed me to reflect more deeply on […]
