I’ve been working really hard lately to decrease stress, and taking a bath has become one of my go-to treats for relaxation and alone time – especially now that we have our own place with TWO bathtubs! The key to perfecting bath time is the right ambience and activities, so I always take a few minutes to prepare for it. Read on to make the most of yours. You deserve it!
I’m an equal-opportunity beauty junkie. I’ll buy products from all over – be it Sephora or Target – and while I love the personalized department store experience the most, I prefer the price tag of the drugstore, hands down. I bet you do, too! This month I’ve found four products – one makeup, one skin, one hair and one body – under $30 each that I am loving. All were purchased from either CVS, Target or Walgreens. Read on to learn all about them!
There is no doubt that I am 100% jinxing myself by even daring to talk about the fact that my skin has improved significantly in the last month. But I simply must share with you, my dear readers and fellow acne-stricken and/or adjusting-to-aging friends, the skincare I’ve found that actually seems to be working!!! One product is the latest beauty trend, another brand has seemingly eliminated my acne (for now) and the final item is an anti-aging impulse purchase that I’m admitting to with full disclosure. Read on!
I love trying new makeup trends each season, but I don’t love breaking the bank to do it. We’ll all be onto something else in a few months, so what’s the point of spending a lot? For these items, I’ll head straight to the drugstore or for the low-end lines at Sephora. The price is right! Two of my favorite looks I’m seeing a lot for summer are bright liners with matching lashes, and a bright pop-of-color lip – not necessarily worn at the same time, though! What I love about these two trends is that most skin tones can find a shade that works for them to pull this off, so they are universal yet unique looks! Read on for how I wear them and which brands I prefer.
Happy weekend, dear readers! If you are in the mood for a little retail therapy (and let’s face it, it’s been a rough week so let’s get over it with some shopping), then I’ve got some great news for you. Two brands I really respect and love – Clarins and The Feed Project – have come together with a shared goal to give 1 million meals to children in need over two weeks. Read on to see how you can help – and get some deluxe samples of my favorite Clarins products while you’re at it!
Confession: I keep a beauty diary. Well, really it’s a combination of a set of lists, a calendar, and a group of photos – all intended to capture my beauty activities and goals. This system keeps me on track for maintenance of all things hair, makeup, nails, products, grooming, and beauty blogging. Why on earth am I telling you this? Because if you’re a beauty nerd like me or simply a woman looking to stay a bit organized and on top of her game, then this system could help you, too.
