    makeup declutter | 2019

    As the year winds down, I did a full declutter of my makeup collection. I want my makeup collection to be currated and truly enjoy everything I’m using. Check out the declutter on my YouTube! After filming this, I’ve decluttered even more that I found I no longer needed or brought me joy. I try to declutter through the year, so I expect that this trend will continue. Looking forward to be more mindful with my purchases in 2020.

    sustainable gift guide | 2019

    The holidays are around the corner. Black Friday is upon us next weekend and everyone will be out buying gifts for their loved ones (and maybe for themselves).
