Currently obsessing….Glossier

I’ve been seeing and hearing about Glossier for a while now but I’m always terrified to switch up any of my skin or makeup routines in pure fear of having adult breakouts. Adult zits are the WORST. I sacked it up when a friend gave me a discount code and I went ahead and ordered […]

Hangover Cure? Yes please.

I’ve been trying every trick in the book over the past few years to cure hangovers. The struggle is real AF these days. I swear the minute I turned 26 I stopped being able to drink 3 glasses of wine without waking up hating myself. Now that I’m 30, I just don’t have time to […]

Popsugar Must Have Box!

Okay – I have to admit, I have literally gotten every box subscription service you can imagine. I’m all about NOT running around to 473894 stores just to try out new and exciting trends and products only to find out I don’t love all of them. I’m 100% all in for services that send them straight […]

Forever 21 haul? Yup, I said it.

I’m not 21….but some of my clothes are. Now, I’m an advocate for quality but hear me out on this one for a second… First off – I DO NOT SHOP IN PERSON AT FOREVER 21. Why? Because they know what they are doing with their marketing and they are not aiming for people, well, […]

RANT: Setting boundaries

Can I rant for a minute? Because I’m hearing a lot of people getting frustrated with blurred lines between business and pleasure and how being SO accessible via technology these days is making them absolutely LOSE IT. And I totally get it… so I want to explain my secret weapon. Boundaries, boundaries, boundaries. Honestly they […]

Skin Secret – makeup that makes it BETTER!?

Ugh. You guys – adult acne is a thing. I didn’t believe it would ever, EVER happen to me. But 3 days after my 30th birthday, these pesky zits started popping up out of absolutely nowhere! I got these weird eczema patches…like WTF? My dermatologist was even surprised. He knows how well I work at […]
