First mistake: I went to a new salon I didn’t know. I had seen her work on Instagram and thought it looked beautiful, but I had never actually met her. I’m newer to the area and had yet to find a salon I loved. Since I was going in for what I thought would be a very simple cut and color appointment, I didn’t see how this would be a big problem. I scheduled an appointment and went in, showed her my inspo pics and discussed the color and cut I was looking for.
I’M GETTING MARRIED! Makeup Inspo
I plan on doing my own makeup on the day. I’ve had my makeup done a few times before and never really loved it. I may change my mind down the road, but for now I think I want to do it myself. I love doing my own makeup and find it incredibly relaxing to get to take my time and really play around with makeup. That being said, I’m not exactly sure how I want to have my makeup look on the big day.
Is this even a bronzer?
Chanel recently launched their Cruise 2019 makeup collection and since I’m living paycheck to paycheck, I decided to spend my life savings on a bronzer & highlighter duo. Because that’s a great idea. But since I did it, I might as well review it! They came out with two shades: Claire & Medium. I ordered […]
Beauty Breakdown: Cream Blush
With summer just around the corner, I am all about cream products. Blush, bronzer, highlight. You name it, I want a cream version. I find that especially in summer, cream blush melts in better with my skin and gives me a much more natural flush. So today, we’re breaking down cream blushes from six brands […]
For me, Lilah B was one of those brands that just popped up out of no where. I was strolling through Sephora, minding my own business, trying to convince myself that I didn’t need a 17th foundation, when out of the corner of my eye I saw her; the clean beauty brand of my dreams: […]
BREAK IT DOWN: Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid is one of those terms that gets thrown around a lot in the skincare community, but how much do we really know about it? Should I be dousing my face in a giant vat of it nightly? Should I only use products that contain Hyaluronic Acid? And why does it vary in price […]
Skincare: What to Invest In & Where to Save $$$
I was asked to put together a skincare routine for my aunt and explain to her where she should invest in her skincare. That got me thinking: where should we invest and where should we save? Here’s how I would spend my money if I were just starting to build my routine all over again. […]
TRASH TALK: 3 Months of Empties
I have been hoarding my empties for probably three months. Since I have a ton of stuff, I have been working on going through my current stash before purchasing anything new. Sol De Janiero Bum Bum Cream The is the body cream that our whole house uses. Austin loves it as much as I do. […]
EVERYTHING I OWN: Physical Exfoliants
I used to rely on physical exfoliants in my weekly routine. That is, until I found chemical exfoliation. Now, I rarely find myself reaching for physical exfoliators, which makes the fact that I own so many seem a bit excessive. I have ordered this list from least to most abrasive to make it a little […]
Brighten Me Up
As many of you may know, I have switched my skincare routine to start focusing more on brightening my skin. I have a lot of hyperpigmentation due to the last few years of acne that I’m trying to get rid of. I’ve had quite a few people ask me which products I’ve been reaching for […]
