I’ve always been attracted to hair care formulated specifically for brunettes, so today I’m sharing two different lines that have worked well for my own brown locks.
Ever wondered how you can use one hair tool to create multiple looks? Wonder no more. Today I show you a hair tutorial on how to use a straightener to curl. Sounds counter-intuitive, yes, but you read that right – curl. While this may not come across as the most immediate use for your straightener, it is no secret that the Best Hair Straighteners 2019 happen to be effective in curling hair too. Be sure to pin this! And the finished product… These are the items I used to achieve the look: Shop The Post:Read More
Although my beauty cabinet is filled with quite a few other lovely makeup products (read: toys), somehow I always reach for particular tried and true products when I don’t want to think twice about what I’ll wear that day. These items also happen to be what I currently have in my travel makeup bag. They work well for me, and you can see they’re well-loved (I’ve hit pan on a few items, and that Benefit Instant Brow Pencil is starting to look like a deluxe sample, haha). LORAC PRO Palette A beloved palette of mine! The top shades are matte, and the bottom row is shimmer. It has every shade I would need for an everyday look, and the quality is lovely.

Welcome to my powder room counter, Bond Girl! I thought I’d share some of my current skincare favorites today. I know I’d like to see what’s behind other women’s medicine cabinets too. My routine is gradually evolving, especially since I like to try new things to possibly recommend here. If this post turns out to be helpful, I can also share some additional non-daily skincare treatments I like to use and future discoveries. Firstly, let’s cover the basics of what kind of skin I have. I’m in my mid-twenties with combination skin. I struggle to stay matte all day in my t-zone area, but my skin feels dry after cleansing, especially around the outer edges of my face and on my lips during the winter months. I also get the occasional acne flare-ups, the worst of which tend to come in waves (most likely hormonally-influenced). My skincare product choices are usually based on effectiveness, scent, and packaging. I like quality products, pleasant scents, and beautiful, classic packaging (don’t we all!). I enjoy using skincare products, because 1) I’m trying to prevent skin aging now instead of when it’s too late, 2) makeup application is a lot smoother with skin that…Read More
