A Concealer Confession.

November 8, 2018


I have a confession to make…

You know how they say not to judge a book by its cover? I did. However, it wasn’t a book, it was a concealer, and I judged it not by its cover but for its packaging. But you get the point.

I’ll be the first one to admit, I’ve seen the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser around the neighboorhood (and at my neighborhood Walgreens). A few friends had told me how they loved this concealer, but the packaging totally turned me off. From the sponge tip to the maroon packaging, nothing about this concealer appealed to me.

A Clean Beauty Haul.

November 5, 2018

Trying out some new products

Ahhh… clean beauty. Clean beauty is something that I’ve loved for years but I don’t think I’ve ever done a proper blog post on the subject. Moreover, I cannot talk about clean beauty without mentioning Credo Beauty in the same breath. Credo is, of course, the largest, safest, and real-est clean beauty assortment retailer in the US. In addition to being cruelty-free, all of Credo’s products are formulated without harmful ingredients.

I was lucky enough to receive a goodie box of some of Credo’s best-sellers and customer faves to try out… and boy oh boy are they good. Keep reading to find out my faves and maybe you’ll discover some new clean beauty products to try out for yourself!

A Mini Guide to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree.

November 2, 2018

The last time I visited Palm Springs, I was 12 and in 6th grade. I still remember it well and it has been high on my list of places to return. When my friend, Samantha, asked if I wanted to go because she had a BOGO ticket on Alaska, I jumped at the chance to visit again.

It was a completely different experience to visit as an adult! From working at Ernest Coffee in the mornings (which doubles as a tiki bar at night!) to eating our way through downtown, Palm Springs made for the coziest girl’s trip destination. We also spent an overnight up in Joshua Tree, which was a destination on my bucket list for 2018.

I wanted to share a few of the trip highlights, which may sway you towards checking out Palm Springs and Joshua Tree as your next vacation. Keep reading, friend!
