The Skincare Routine I’m Loving [Summer 2019]

Wow it’s been forever since I’ve written a beauty post on here! I realize that I share a good amount of beauty (mainly hair) on Instagram, but I lack at bringing that same content to the blog, so I’m sorry about that friends! It’s been a long time since I shared my skincare routine and that’s for a couple reasons. 1. I never feel like I KNOW enough to share…

I’m no skin expert (definitely not a beauty blogger over here!) but I will say that by working with brands and experimenting more lately, I have gotten more knowledgeable about skincare.

The weather…

7 Things Making Your Skin Freak Out

As part of my goal to get better at skincare, I want to learn about more than just what products to use. Y’all know I love testing things out and giving recommendations when I find something I love (like Tula products or what the heck to do for hormonal acne – more on this later), and then I also like to get to the WHY behind certain issues.

One Foundation I’m Keeping as I Purge My Bathroom

If y’all have seen my IG stories over the last week or so, you know I’m doing a MAJOR bathroom cleanout. I was actually kind of embarrassed to put it out for the world because I know it’s out of control and excessive, but y’all have to remember that a lot of it is for work. I’m constantly being sent or buying new products to try them out, and then…

You really do see positive changes the more effort or time you put into the routine…

4 Reasons I Love My Dyson Hairdryer

With the holidays just around the corner and all the shopping that goes with it, I thought it would be a great time to weigh in on my experience with the Dyson hair dryer. Around this time last year, I was talking about how much I loved my Drybar blowdryer. And so since I’ve gotten a new one and expanded my horizons, I felt like I needed to let y’all…

Why I’m Obsessed with Mascara Primer & How it Changed My Lash Game

3 Things I Do to Get My Hair Color to Last

I’m pretty sure one of the best inventions of this decade has been balayage hair. Am I wrong?! I not only love how it looks, but it’s low maintenance, natural, and the best part – you only need to go in for it a couple times a year. I never need it more than 2x a year and I think it’s because of a few things. One, my hairdresser does…

3 Reasons I’ve Been Using Tula & Loving It

I’ve shared that I use Tula on Insta Stories before, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized I hadn’t dedicated a blog post to it. Which is kinda funny because I’ve been literally using it for years and it’s one of my favorite skincare lines. I’ve been using them in some way or another since all the way back when they were first getting started – maybe back in…

How I Do My Loose Waves

Ever since I cut my hair, I haven’t really experimented with it much. I usually just round brush it dry, maybe do a little velcro-roller action, and then I’m done. But when I was at the beach last month with my friend Liz, she told me she is obsessed with her Beachwaver and inspired me to try mine. I’ve actually had this bad boy in my bathroom for almost 2…

How to Take Better Care of Your Hair

Y’all, I have to apologize. I’ve been promising more hair content for months, and it’s taken me SO long! Sometimes I struggle with posting beauty content until I feel like I’m a pro with the style or topic – because I actually want to share quality content instead of me figuring something out, ya know? Also, I’m just a perfectionist like that. I’ve been sharing quick tips on Instagram (like…

5 Things Keeping My Skin Hydrated This Summer

I’ll be honest that I’ve been blessed with pretty regular skin. I don’t get a ton of breakouts and it honestly doesn’t give me TOO much of an issue, but y’all know I’ve been trying to take better care of it. Honestly, it not being too much of a problem area has made me lazy with it over the years – and I thought it was time to change that.…
