    my low buy 2020

    I’m doing a low buy in 2020. If you’re unfamiliar with a low buy (or no buy), it’s when you do put a restriction on how much you’re buying or simply not buy anything. For me, my low buy will focus on makeup, beauty and skincare. Low and no buys have become popular in the beauty community, and I find them intriguing. The reason for doing them varies by person, but generally it’s to help curb shopping habits, making sure you’re using what you already own, and not buying into the consumer culture of the beauty community. Why? In 2019, I started getting back in makeup more so than previous…

    fall beauty favorites | 2019

I thought I’d get back on track with some of my favorites from over the summer and beginning of fall. A lot of these makeup products were used on my wedding day. Something else that I’m trying to be mindful of lately is purchasing cruelty-free makeup and beauty products. I’m not 100% CF yet, but I’m taking steps to get there. The…

    spring beauty favorites | 2019

    Over the past several months, I’ve been getting back into beauty and makeup. When I first started my blog, makeup was my main content. I used to do reviews, first impressions, empties, and more. Since I’m currently on the mend from surgery, I’ve had to find another hobby to focus on for a few weeks that didn’t involve dead lifts. A lot of these favorites you might recognize from my recent Mexico Packing List. Turns out, all my picks for our spring vacation were perfect for traveling and every day looks. All of these products help with perfecting my base which is essential to any makeup look. These picks are…

    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…
