Someone Will Always Be Better Than You

I am a perfectionist. It’s incredibly hard to be a perfectionist because nothing is ever good enough. Something always could have been done just a little bit better, or more often than not, things could have been done A LOT better. Something that I have been thinking about a lot lately is how to break…

Back With a Vengeance

Life tends to get in the way of what makes us happy. At least that’s how it has been for me most of my life. That stops today. After contemplating for some time whether or not blogging is even worth my time (Will I be any good? Will people actually care about what I write?…

Korres Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil Review

For years the thought of putting oil on my (already oily) skin has absolutely repulsed me. During that time there was even a short while where I didn’t even put on a moisturizer. I know, I know; that’s absolutely awful. (Disclaimer for those of us who don’t use moisturizer: Please just try one. You won’t…

Underdog Spotlight Series: FARMACY

Something that is so important for brands to show is that they have a heart. A brand that shows that they stand for something, whether it be jobs for locals, political activism, or simply showing that they donate to a good cause is more than a notch higher in my book. Having a company show…

My Very First Voxbox!

I’m not usually a person who tries to do things just for free items. I rarely even enter contests, because really, who wins those? On a whim – because another friend of mine received a Voxbox from Influenster – I decided that I was going to sign up for myself. I filled out my profile. I…

Sunday Riley Tidal Review

If MySpace was still relevant, Sunday Riley would be in my Top 8 – no questions asked. This brand is beyond delightful. There are not many Every product has a disctinct purpose or promise, and every product delivers on that promise quickly and effectively. What’s even better is that all of the products are cruelty free…

Kate Somerville Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm Review

As much as I love spa-inspired skincare, for some reason I had never really given Kate Somerville products a real shot. I avoided the brand because I was concerned about different ingredients that I’ve seen used in commercialized – or dermatologist grade – brands. That unfortunately, was to my own detriment. Her products are absolutely fantastic….

The Holiday Spirit

A few nights ago, after working a 15-hour day, I had a very thoughtful moment while driving in my car. It started when I began to drive away from the parking lot. I saw something fluttering and hanging onto my windshield wiper blade. At the first stoplight that I caught I hopped out of my car and…

Underdog Spotlight Series: KORRES

Everybody loves an underdog; we know this. The problem is that sometimes people don’t know the underdog exists.That’s why I am starting a series for this blog that will attempt to highlight and bring more attention to brands that are underrated. The series is appropriately dubbed: Underdog Spotlight. Each month will feature a different brand. These…

Sunday Riley: The Martian & U.F.O. Review

What company makes real luxury skincare for oily and acne-prone skin? Sunday Riley does. It is so hard to find a luxury skincare company that makes products for those of us with oily and acne-prone skin. The reasoning behind this – I assume – is because most of the people who are spending money on high…

5 Tips for Staying on Plan This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. You get to spend time with family, you get to eat delicious food, and you get to shop your heart out at 6 A.M. the next morning (if you feel the urge). The one major downside is that it is so easy to go off of a meal plan…

J. One Jelly Pack Review

K- Beauty – also known as Korean Beauty – scares the living daylight out of me. Every product is supposed to be inherently hydrating. Don’t get me wrong, hydration is absolutely necessary for your skin. Being someone with extremely oily skin however, being more hydrated is the exact opposite of what I typically want. I actually…
