My Winter Skincare Routine

I’m so excited to share with you my full winter skincare routine, including bath and body products.  When I look back on previous winter skincare routines, I notice I was never truly dedicated to following a routine (which is why I was always dealing with dry and rough skin. I also wasn’t taking care of myself. Nowadays, I’m going to OrangeTheory once a week, eating healthy and nutritious meals and drinking LOTS of water.

Staying Organized, Saving Money & January Beauty Obsessions

I hope your 2019 is off to a fantastic start. I feel like it’s been a while since I personally checked in and share with you how I’m staying organized in 2019 and a peek into my January beauty obsessions (no new products though). I made the decision to stop shopping for the month of January so I can get my finances in order and save. Two months before Thanksgiving, I was living off unemployment checks (and let me tell you, they are basically pennies) and it was rough! I am so grateful I was able to secure a job but then the holiday shopping season snuck up on me.

Happy New Year + 2019 Beauty Goals

As I write today’s annual New Year’s post and share my 2019 beauty goals, I’m reflecting on the highs and lows of 2018. You may not know this, but I happen to be a huge Bravo fan and I love how Andy always asks the The Real Housewives on what their “rose and thorn” are from their respective seasons during the reunion. So I’m going to share my rose and thorn of 2018. My rose: Having the opportunity to travel to so many cities this year (Charlotte, Pittsburgh, Chincoteague Island, Atlanta, Brooklyn, and NYC).

6 Clean Beauty Products I’m Obsessed With

Last weekend I did a little in-store and online beauty shopping and somehow ended up buying all clean beauty products from Follain, Anthropologies, Bluemercury, and Amazon. Before I get to my haul I want to share a couple thoughts on two new stores I visited in person. Not exactly a new store but a new location—I first stepped into the new three-story Anthropologie in Bethesda for the first time and let me just say… WOW! What a beautiful space. You’d think Anthro was a department store because that’s how large the space was.
