I love getting all dolled up, but I’d be lying if I said I was a beauty guru. I most certainly am not! But I do enjoy sharing helpful tips and tricks when it comes to hair, makeup, and skincare that work for me. And I love sharing new products I’ve fallen in love with as well. Find those here!

The Three-Step Skincare Routine I Got Duncan Started On

Raise your hand if you’ve ever caught your husband or boyfriend sneaking into your skincare for moisturizer or maybe even a cleanser! I’m going to guess a bunch of you (figuratively) raised your hand because this has definitely happened in our house – especially since moving to Denver where the air is very dry. This is why I partnered with Nordstrom x Kiehl’s to share some amazing holiday skincare for…

Curling Iron vs Wand: Which is better?

OK, this post is a big one! I almost talked myself out of doing it because I found myself getting overwhelmed as I sorted through all the details and broke everything down on my head/on paper.

Beauty Products I Use Weekly

Hey, friends! Hope y’all are ready for a dose of beauty content because here it is! TBH I’m always trying out different products in this department, but I do have a few ride-or-die kind of items that I’ve kept as part of my routine for a while now so I wanted to share them! What I linked below isn’t comprehensive but like I said, these are some of my favorites. It’s about 90% skincare focused, but I did link this mascara I’ve been loving as well as the Tarte Shape Tape because duh! ;) And of course my Living Proof dry shampoo because I basically can’t leave the house without using it!

How I’m Transitioning My Beauty for Spring

Sometime over the last five years or so I learned the importance of switching up your beauty routine based on the season.

So expert or not, I have picked up a thing or two over the…

One of my *most* frequently asked questions is how I get volume in my hair.
