April Beauty Faves

Well we’ve made it to April and despite the weather NOT GIVING A SH*T, here we are. And even though it’s not as warm as I’d like, the season is changing and my skincare routine needs to follow suit. I recently started using a few new beauty products (hair, skin and body) so I’m sharing the brands and why they appeal to me. There’s a lot to unpack below, so stick with me because there are a ton of goodies…

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…

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…

Review: Nurse Jamie Uplift Roller

I have never had so many questions about a particular product before – THANKS FAM! Seriously, it’s been such a treat to chat with you in real time via Instagram Stories and if you haven’t gotten on board, what are you waiting for? Also, if you’re not in the know, my first newsletter launched last week. Give it a read and sign up at the bottom of this post to get the good straight to your inbox. Anyway back to why…

Get Ready With Me – Episode #1

Ok guys, I did my first YouTube video for 2018! A quick Get Ready With Me (#GRWM) to show you what I do and use when getting ready AND to teach myself how to edit these damn videos. It honestly took my about five hours to get this situated and I think I need to graduate from iMovie to Adobe because iMovie was a serious pain and it crashed midway through my edit (thank god I saved the final video).…

Kim Kardashian Barely There Makeup

Last week I needed to take a little break from the blog for some real, true me time. It was much needed and I’ll be writing up a longer post as to why it was so important…STAY TUNED! Now to the good stuff – I had the opportunity to get a full 1:1 makeup lesson from my amazing girlfriend, Emma Bitove. Emma just finished school in London, U.K. at the same school Charlotte Tilbury attended (just saying), so you know she…

My Skin Care Routine

Lately this has been your number one ask of me via Instagram so today I made a little video to take you through my skin care routine. It’s a long video since my routine is a bit of a process but with all the years of skin conditions I’ve endured, I’m thrilled to share what has finally worked for me and hope that all or some of these work for you too. I know the struggles of dealing with bad…

Cheap + Cheerful Skin Care

You guys, I am so pumped to be diving further into sharing my beauty finds. I genuinely am not a beauty person. Case in point: I went out this weekend (like to a club lol) and my girlfriend scolded me for not wearing make up. I don’t do eyeliner with the exception of special occasions, I’ve still yet to perfect the perfect blush – bronzer combo and don’t even ask me to show you a contouring tutorial because it would…

Quick Five Minute Makeup with Charlotte Tilbury

Hi littles…so I’ve taken the dive and decided to do a little makeup video for you with products from Charlotte Tilbury. I am not the best at makeup but I figure the best way to learn is to try alongside you so I hope that you enjoy or get a good laugh at it. Also I’m sorry my skin is so bad right now with the weather change. I’m using some new products so I am hoping that it calms…

Beautylicious 2016

So I rarely discuss beauty on the blog anymore. I am so sorry, I know it’s a huge topic of interest and I’d like to deep dive in to it more (hey 2017 goals…time to get back into video) but for now my beauty routine is pretty minimal given my hectic schedule. This has got to change. If you need tips on skincare products or haircare products to help with a healthy glow / shiny hair, pimple reduction, seasonal skin…
