Fall Things

I love summer and I’m always sad to see it go, but when fall arrives, I’m reminded just how much of a fall person I am. It’s like I finally come alive again. Whenever October rolls around, I’m reminded of the Anne of Green Gables quote: “I’m so glad I live in a world where there […]

Summer Is Ending, But The Summer Feeling Doesn’t Have To

It’s officially August, which means that summer is sizzling to its end. For some people, that means heading back to school. For others, it means ending their vacations, or it possibly means sending their kids back to school. For me, it means returning to school as an educator. Like everyone else with a career, my […]

Joanna Gaines’s Lemon Bars

One of my favorite desserts of all time is Lemon Bars. I’ve loved them for as long as I can remember, but they especially gained significance for me during my freshman year of college. My mom shipped a care package to me around Valentine’s Day, and guess what?! The package contained lemon bars. I’m a […]

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 […]

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 […]
