Summer Skin Care Routine

My skin care journey has been a wild ride but I can finally say I’m content with my skin. I’ll always have a bit of redness and a zit here and there but it doesn’t bother me as much anymore. The big win for me is that it’s been 7 months since I’ve work makeup. That’s a huge milestone! I had worn makeup since high school because I was always been insecure about my skin. I started breaking out at…

Spring/Summer Nail Polish Picks

Nail polish has always been a way for me to express myself without saying a word. I stuck close to blues and greens as I grew up. It was a form of rebellion. All the girlie girls loved pink and purple and I didn’t want to be like them. As I grew older, I realized that gender stereotypes were damaging to me if I allowed them to be. So I grew out of my rebellious “not like the other girls”…

My short hair care routine

I used to work with my dad in his print shop and we were known pretty well in the community. We had lots of fun helping others and most of our customers were a dream to work with. I had long hair for years but the hair care routine for it was so time consuming… I’ll never forget the reactions I got the first time I cut my hair short. There were a lot of compliments paired with unwanted advice…

My Autumn Skincare routine

It felt like the end of summer crashed down on me! One day everyone was in shorts and the next we were bundled up tight. Thankfully I haven’t had to change up my skin routine too much. What worked for me in the summer is working pretty well now for my autumn skincare. It’s always amazing to find a year round routine but I need to test it during the winter before I can make that claim! Allow me to…

Autumnal Nail Polish Picks

I’m pretty good at buying things that I need and resisting things I want… That is until it comes to nail polish. It’s an obsession where I just can’t help myself! I usually spend at least a month debating on the pros and cons of buying a new shade. And while I do pretty well at saying no, there are definitely times where I just have to say yes. And the wonderful thing about Autumnal nail polish, is that there…

Autumn Makeup Routine

Here it is, my simple Autumn Makeup Routine. It’s not fancy and it’s not amazing. It’s usually a 5 minute face. When I lived in America my routine was so much longer. I find that as I get older, I want to spend less time in the bathroom. But I do still have imperfections I want to cover. Before I apply makeup I start off with my skincare routine. I like to mix my Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer in with…
