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!

How I Round Brush My Hair Dry

I’ve shown y’all a few blowdrying tricks on Instagram stories, but I wanted a place on the blog where we could talk ALL THINGS round-brushing techniques. And just to have everything all in one place!

How I Use Dry Shampoo To Get Lots of Volume

Dry shampoo is probably one of the greatest inventions in beauty, like ever. Am I right? Today I’ll be showing you how to use dry shampoo in a way that you’ve probably never tried before. One of my most frequently asked questions is how I get so much volume in my hair, and I’ve gotta admit that a lot of it is attributed to HOW I use dry shampoo. I am…

The 6 Face Masks That Changed My Life

Y’all, this headline might be a tad dramatic, but it’s the freakin’ TRUTH. I asked y’all if you wanted to hear more about my favorite face masks in a recent beauty post, and I’m pretty sure everyone said yes – so here we are! Honestly, sometimes I forget to write about this kind of stuff because it’s just part of my beauty routine, but since there is clearly interest, I’ll…

Favorite Kerastase Products

I’m so excited to share this sale with y’all as Kerastase is one of my FAVORITE hair care brands. And If you’ve ever tried their stuff, then I’m sure you’re a huge fan as well! They’re one of those brands you really can’t NOT like – if you know what I mean? Their hair care products are an investment, yes, but they’re worth it. Since I was personally so excited…

6 Easy Holiday Hairstyles

I get a lot of questions about hair, but the funny thing is, I really don’t do much with it (other than a top knot or down slash curled). So I thought it’d be fun to put together a handful of looks that just about anyone can do – if I can, you can! – that would be perfect for holiday parties. These should work with pretty much any hair…

Everyday Makeup Routine: Complexion Essentials

Y’all have probably picked up that though I talk about beauty here and there on the site, I’m not one of those girls who lives and dies by makeup. Some girls love getting done up everyday or wearing heavy makeup, and I’m just not one of them. Much like my style, I’m all about everyday looks that can translate from a meeting, to church, to hanging with friends – and…

Transitioning Your Beauty Routine from Summer to Fall

UGG ‘Miranda’ Robe I can’t remember when exactly I learned that you shouldn’t use the same products year round, but now I can’t imaging using the same things in summer and winter. Obviously things like weather, humidity, and habits change from season to season, so it only makes sense that we tweak our beauty routines to match what’s happening, you know? I was talking to a friend about my “fall…

I certainly wasn’t thinking about creating a blog post around this tutorial, but I wanted to have a way of sharing all these products with y’all! So this is LITERALLY just a screenshot of my stories to let y’all know I’m…

How To Perfect Your Pout

Who doesn’t want super kissable lips? I don’t know about y’all, but in the winter months (and summer too!) my lips are just a disaster – they get dried out and crack so easily. I’ve never been one to take care of my lips (ha that sounds funny), but I’ve been doing little things to make an effort lately and it’s been making a difference for me! So I thought…

The Key To a Healthy Complexion with SK-II

   As you’ve probably noticed from the content I’ve been publishing on my blog this year, I’m trying my best to become a healthier person. Throughout my early twenties I didn’t feel a huge need or pull to focus on health, mainly because it seems like that’s just done for you. You have a faster metabolism, are still strong from sports played in high school or college, your skin is…

My “Eight Hour” Experience with Elizabeth Arden

I first discovered the Elizabeth Arden eight-hour line through the cult-favorite skin protectant. It was unlike any product I’d ever used in that it served multiple purposes and quite literally too in that the composition/texture/make-up of it was different than any moisturizing product I’d come across. And now that I’ve been traveling non-stop lately, I’ve been into more than ever. Let me explain. I mentioned last week that I have…

How To Style Clean Vs. Dirty Hair

We all know by now that washing your hair daily isn’t ideal. Aside from drying it out and stripping your expensive color treatments, washing and drying your hair is also just flat out time consuming – this is why I typically only wash my hair a couple of times per week…if that. Not having to wash my hair every day saves me a ton of time in my morning routine.…

Bronzers, Self-Tanners, & Makeup Review

With summer in full bloom, I wanted to do a post totally dedicated to all my favorite bronzers on the market - from long-lasting products to wash-away after the day makeup. I mentioned it on instagram a few weeks back, but I've finally finished putting this together and am excited to share the results. I've tried each and every one of these products mentioned, which is probably why it took me so long to get this post up! Let me know your thoughts and if you've tried any of these! OR did I miss any MUST-try products?! PLEASE do share!

6 Habits of Women With Good Hair

I get asked about (slash to do more) hair content a lot, so I thought it'd be fun to do a post on the habits that help me maintain mine today. To be honest, I have pretty easy hair - it's wavy-slash-curly-somtimes-t00 for the most part, is simple enough to style, and I can get volume if I try hard enough. But with that being said, I also do pay attention to treating it right so that it stays manageable and healthy. With research over the years (aka me asking hair stylists a trillion questions plus an occasional google search), I've learned that there are certain "rules" aka habits women with good hair follow - and I've basically copied these. Here are 6 of them:

How to Make Your Makeup Last All Day

Hi y'all! Today, I want to talk about makeup. More specifically, getting it to actually last. Because there's nothing worse than spending a bunch of time on a serious face of makeup only to find it completely missing a couple hours later. Right?? Ughh, the struggle is real. Also, the post on getting curls to stay had great feedback from y'all, so I thought doing a similar post - but this time on long-lasting makeup tips - would be fun.
