Beauty Review // Hyla3D HA Activating Complex by Jan Marini

Hey all! Today I have a beauty review to share, about the Hyla3D HA Activating Complex by Jan Marini Skin Research. As you may know, I have super sensitive, combination skin that’s prone to breakouts. I also have a touch of rosacea and I tend to get bad blackheads. Over the past few years, I’ve found that keeping my skin super moisturized is the key to staying breakout- and blackhead-free! It’s weird, because I have oily skin, but washing my face with oils and slathering on moisturizer really works wonders for me.File Apr 24, 5 07 05 PM

My long history with glasses, featuring GlassesUSA.com + a review

Let me tell you about my long history with glasses. When I was in first grade, it was discovered that I needed glasses. I was so excited, and my parents and I chose a pair of wide-frame glasses that had red confetti print on the frames. I thought I was such a grown-up. When I first wore them to school, every kid in my grade whipped their heads around, noticing that I had gotten glasses. Everyone asked me about them, expressing shock that I needed to wear them all the time. Suddenly, I wasn’t so happy about them anymore.

Derma E Charcoal Beauty Products: A New Year Detox for my skin!

Hey all! Today I have a beauty review for you, about a company I am thrilled to work with. A lot of you may know I’ve always struggled with acne and breakouts, and have tried dozens of beauty products in my quest for clear skin. Eventually, I did settle on a combination of OTC and dermatologist-prescribed products, and was hesitant to add anything else in that may upset that happy equilibrium. However, I recently was asked to give Derma E products a try, and I was SO SURPRISED by how much I loved them!

Beauty Review // Prime Objective Perfecting primer

Hey all! I’m back today with a review of a face primer, the Studio Gear Cosmetics Prime Objective silicone primer. My primer needs are pretty specific: oil absorbing and color correcting, and I’ve never used a silicone-heavy primer before, so I didn’t know what to expect initially when giving this primer a try. I’ve heard mixed things about makeup containing silicone, so I did my research! I’ve been using this primer for a few weeks now, so here’s my honest opinion of this Prime Objective Primer.

Fashion ft. Roadkill Ranch // Styling a kimono for fall

I’m a huge fan of the so-called kimono for fall. I adore drapey looks and loose silhouettes, and I just love the bohemian look a kimono gives to an outfit. But they’re generally easier to style in the warmer months because they’re not sturdy or substantial when you need warmth. But with the right kimono and the right styling, you can absolutely wear a kimono for fall!
