Pop of Color

I partnered with Meijer to share a few ways to incorporate bold pops of color in your beauty routine this winter. See more over at Meijer Style!

If you wonder what I normally wear day-to-day–this is it! SURPRISE ITS ALL BLACK. And I love me some basic tees, sweaters and sweatshirts and elevating it a bit with a bold lipstick. It seems a little unexpected for me at least and makes it seem like a brand new look with a different lip color choice. Read More »

Winter Skin Routine

My Skin at 30


If I rewind one year, I can vividly recall how terrible my skin was cooperating. Constant hormonal breakouts, uneven skin tone, scarring..My skin caused a few insecurities to creep into my everyday life and it took last winter for me to solve some of its ongoing problems. Fast forward to this year, I’ve changed birth control, realized the benefits of the occasional chemical peel and eating better/drinking  more water. Once I was able to get past acne and scarring, I could focus on maintaining my skin and keeping it healthy and as youthful as it can appear. Read More »

I’ve been obsessed with matte lipsticks and I love this formula by Maybelline in the first image. It glides on smoothly and feels more hydrating, unlike a few formulas I’ve tested recently. I’m also a fan of Neutrogena’s hydro boost water gel, with and without sunscreen. My skin is sensitive to moisturizers and this line doesn’t flare up my acne.

Now that the weather has warmed and the flowers have bloomed, I’m ready to smell sweet and tropical. I go between Dial’s coconut water body wash now and Dove.
I’m also ready for humidity with Schwartzkopf’s frizz control and protect line. Meijer carries professional hair products like Schwarzkopf and my absolute favorite, Biolage.
