Fast Five: How to Win Sponsored Partnerships

This post has been sitting in my drafts for a while mostly because I wasn’t sure if it warranted more than just five tips. It is by far the question I get asked about the most: “How do I get sponsorships?” And while I wish there was some magic, simple way to achieve this, I’m here to tell you there isn’t. Sponsored partnerships really come down to the work. Taking time to develop a mutually beneficial idea, then creating kick-ass content,…

The Bachelor – Arie Episode 8 Recap

I don’t even know where to begin with this show anymore. With every week that goes by I feel Arie growing tired of pretending to feign interest in any of the remaining four ladies. Can we all agree that he just does not give a sh-t anymore? It’s kind of a big massive joke but whatever let’s dive in to this week’s ladies and dates. We are in hometowns so why waste any time and instead let’s just take Arie…

Four Questions for My Facialist

I had my first facial with Dermalogica this week and it was A DREAM! I have had facials in the past and my skin has scarred, broken out or been so red after that I couldn’t possibly be in public. This facial was completely different. While it was harsh (if you couldn’t tell my skin needs werk) when it was all over I didn’t have to hide my face in shame or worry about seeing anyone I know. My skin was…

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide For Her + Him.

Ok let’s get one thing straight. I LOVE VALENTINE’S DAY. I have never been one to be brought down if I’m single or over the top annoying if I’m taken because truthfully it’s not a real holiday. It’s an excuse to feel sexy, spoil the loves of your life (including yourself) and eat delicious food/chocolate and drink wine in anything from a silk teddy to sweatpants. Tell me where can you go wrong? To help get you inspired, I’ve put together…

The Bachelor – Arie Episode 6 Recap

Can I preface this week’s ep by asking WTF WAS UP WITH THE REST OF THE SEASON PREVIEWS? I don’t understand what’s happening but I feel like something is about to drop and we will be ending this season with some J U I C E. Ok so Lauren B gets a 1:1 date to walk around Paris and she legit says WOW exclusively on camera. Arie really needs her to open up and share, right? WRONG. He was like…

So I’ve teamed up once again with Stella Artois and Water.org to show you how to throw a Super Bowl party that matters. How can you make your…

Four Factors That Cause Breakouts

I want to discuss the most annoying thing that is happening to me in 2018 – BREAKOUTS! Like I detox, I work out, I drink the H2O, I cleanse, I spot treat, I rest, I mask. I. DO. IT. ALL. Everything every derm, facialist and beauty blogger tells you to do. And nothing seems to work. So I’m basically starting an investigation in to why this is happening to my skin alongside a dermatologist (more to come!) and my new…

The Bachelor – Arie Episode 5 Recap

I am jumping in blind here since I missed a couple weeks recapping Arie’s season – apologies sisters, I am back to chat Bach. He is just so dull that I find that I am way more focused on the ladies and wondering how badly they wish Peter was there instead HA. Ok my first question and it’s an overarching question for all Bachelor/Bachelorette seasons — Do the bachelor actually start music careers – who are these people? Chelsea gets…
