    My Summer Beauty Essentials

    Happy summer! The summer solstice was this past week on June 21 so what a better time to share some of my summer beauty essentials I’ve been loving. Makeup is one of my favorite hobbies and I would even say I have quite the collection. I’m no beauty guru or blogger, but it’s always fun for me to share new finds and favorites. It’s a little bittersweet to think about the solstice already passing us because from here on out, the days only get shorter. So if you haven’t made summer vacation plans yet or made it out to the cabin, be sure you add it your calendars ASAP. I…

    February Favorites 2017 | Food, Fitness, Beauty

    February has come to a close and honestly I’m pretty happy about that. Even though February is the shortest month of the year, it kept me busy and stretched more than thin that I like to be. Because I was busy my list of favorites is on the shorter side, but what I have been loving are a part of my normal routine so they’re worth sharing. I spent the latter half of the month too fixated on my macros, so I took a few steps back to focus on what I truly want in regards to my fitness and nutrition. In March, I want to be at ease with my…

    Favorite Products for Curly Hair

Nowadays I’ve embraced my big, curly hair and do get a lot of compliments on it, but growing up it was never like that. Once I stopped fighting my hair and learned how to care for my curls with these amazing products I’ve truly come to really enjoy my hair. Sure I still have days when I’m not happy with it, but who doesn’t have a bad hair day. I would love to see more people embracing their waves and curls so I’m going to…

    Travel Makeup & What I’m Doing In LA

    I’m leaving for Los Angeles tomorrow and I’m super excited! I’m going to visit a friend who has lived out there for a few years now. I already shared what I’m packing for outfits and what’s on my wish list of things to do while there – read about all that here. Today, it’s all about what’s in my travel makeup bag. When I travel, I pretty much stick to bringing favorites so I know I’ll be happy with the looks during my vacation. makeup bag I purchased a roll-up/hanging toiletry bag before our trip to Iceland so I could hang it the hotel and conserve space. It’s come in handy for multiple…

    August Beauty Favorites

    Summer is coming to an end.  This Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of summer, and to be real, I’m ok with this.  I love autumn, it’s my favorite time of the year so I’m excited to start wearing tights! First, I wanted to share my August beauty favorites.  I don’t have a lot, but it’s still worth a post. Suave Professionals Macadamia and White Orchid Conditioner, $2.89 I purchased this after reading some really good reviews on Amazon of this product, especially for girls with curly hair.  I have tried some of the other conditioners from the Suave Professional line and I didn’t like them at all.  This…
