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.

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…

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…

game changer with skinceuticals

If you follow me on Snapchat (username: lexniko) then you know this year has brought a life-changing event into my world. Before I spark any confusion, no I’m not engaged or pregnant – clearly not a lot going on right now – but forย YEARS I have struggled with awful, awful breakouts and chronic acne that matured into adult acne. It’s taken me until 2016 but I finally discovered a bonafide solution in SkinCeuticals. SkinCeuticals has literally changed my skin in…

App Love: Matrix Color Lounge

As you know because I’ve been rambling about it for a few weeks now, I am stuck in a serious hair rut! I love my color but as the seasons change, I get that major itch to switch it up. And you know I’m not one to rush out for a lob or bob so my tastes typically turn to color style. So when my friends at Matrix asked me to test out their new Matrix Color Lounge app, I…
