W E L L N E S S :: 3 Products to Beat dry Winter Skin!

  Hey, guys! Today’s post is all about beating dry winter skin! I really thought I had it all figured out with my skincare routine. My skin has been great these past couple months so I figured I had my skincare routine DOWN…and then the Winter weather rolled in and my skin started drying, flaking, chapping, and looking dull AF. Every Winter for my WHOLE LIFE my face has gotten super dry and it’s painful and makes my makeup look terrible so I was  d e t e r m i n e d   to fix the problem immediately!

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Being Vegan for the Past Month

Why-i-went-vegan

Hey, guys! So I DID the V-word! I went vegan!  I’ve never been a huge meat-eater, and I’ve been on and off vegetarian for years now, but a couple years ago if you asked me if I thought I’d be vegan, I would have said HELL no! I never thought that I would be vegan! I always thought that only super-strict, boring, crazies went vegan…until I did my research and realized how many amazing benefits there are to being vegan! It’s been one month, I’ve cheated 4 times, and I’m still considering myself vegan because that sh*t’s hard to quit (that sh*t being cheese). Becoming vegan is a huge lifestyle change,...

skincare-lifechangers

Hey, guys! As you probably know by now, I am just as obsessed with skincare as I am with makeup (and probably even a little more obsessed). I am always looking for the next best thing to take my skin to the next level, and a couple weeks ago I made a BREAKTHROUGH when I bought a facial cleansing brush and a silk pillowcase! Both of these things were way more effective than I thought they would be, and now I don’t think my skincare routine would ever be the same without them! Keep reading for full reiews of each product! – SILK PILLOWCASE – I’ve heard so many amazing...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Educating Yourself on Your Own Time

Hey, guys!  In today’s world, there are so many opportunities to learn, grow, and educate yourself! I once read a quote that said “successful people never stop learning” and it’s so true! Even if you think you’re an expert on a topic, be it cars, medicine, politics, fashion, hair, photography, or anything, you can always learn more. Keeping an open mind around your area of expertise is the only way to grow and eventually be one of the best! If you read a whole book and only learn one thing, that is one more thing you know! There is so much room for self-growth with that mindset! You may or...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Living your Best Life

Hey, guys! Today’s super quick post is about a trending phrase I have been hearing a lot of lately, which is “Live your best life.” “She’s living her best life” “He’s living his best life” “I’m living my best life” I LOVE this phrase because it’s so broad and it can be applied to anyone in any situation (that is, anyone who is living their best life). I think it’s the perfect one-size-fits-all statement because there are so many different versions of success and how to define when someone has “made it”, and not everyone strives for the same things. Everyone’s goals are different so “Living your best life” is...

HAPPIE THOUGHTS :: Be the Reason a Stranger Smiles Today

Hey, guys! It’s been a minute! Yesterday while I was driving, I passed a store front with a sign that said “Be the reason a stranger smiles today.” and I loved it so much I knew I had to write a blog post about it! Today there are so many hateful things going on in the world, we need to make our own positivity! Making a stranger smile is so special because you don’t know what they’re going through, and they may have really needed that smile. So how the eff do you make a stranger smile?? Give them a compliment! There are a million ways to make a stranger...
