Coming atcha today with a brand new video! I thought I’d share my daily makeup routine for work with you, as it’s the makeup look I wear most often featuring my most used and loved products. Come get ready with me as I show you my work makeup tutorial!
I know you’re rocking things because I still read your blog. I am seeking advice. I am trying to up my skincare game. I got the nip and fab pads you wrote about and so far so good. What I feel like I’m lacking is a basic daytime moisturizer to throw on afterward… do you have a suggestion? I’m super lucky skin wise. I can completely stop doing anything and it’s completely fine for all intents and purposes. It’ll feel a little oily here and there but nothing major. When I use a cleansing/toning product it can feel a little tight/dry afterward. So I just want something that promotes health in general and can restore a bit of moisture/spring to my skin after cleansing it. 9/10 I don’t wear make up in my current routine so I’m really starting from bare bones trying to build better skin care habits. Thanks so much!
I’m still reliving our Maui vacation through the photos we took (yes, I know it’s February). However, when I finally got through the mountain of pictures and videos, I realized there was a recurring theme: this outfit. I ordered this simple, striped cotton dress from ASOS before we left and it became my most-reached-for item once we were there. It was perfect for throwing on over my swimsuit after a beach day and cute enough to wear if we went out to eat afterwards.
The name of the game in blogging and social media is engagement. Above amount of followers and readers, engagement (and quality engagement) is the number one thing that brands look at when they decide to partner with an influencer. It’s how the new Instagram algorithm decides which posts to feature in the Popular page. And now, it’s why so many bloggers have turned to Instagram comment pods to garner the quality engagement to get them noticed by brands and increase their engagement rate.
I was in 2 Instagram comment pods for approximately 3 weeks. So why did I decide to leave?
I’m finally getting around to sharing our photos from our trip to Maui in December! We took a mountain of photos and videos, so it was quite a task to slog through everything. It was our first trip to Hawaii, our first trip to a tropical location, and our first “real” vacation as a couple. Lots of firsts for this one!
Admittedly, many routines in my life have fallen to the wayside as the busyness of life sets in (working out, having my eyebrows tended to, blogging… to name a few). However, I’m always on it with my nightly skincare routine. Every night I take great joy in melting away the stresses of the day with a methodical skincare routine, finishing off with a cup of tea and an episode or two of Gilmore Girls.
As a beauty blogger, I test out a lot of skincare. When I find products that I love, they become like family to me: a comforting presence in an otherwise stressful world. And because you are also my family, I’m delighted to share the lineup with you.
