Undeniable Secrets To Skin That Glows

Undeniable Secrets To Skin That Glows

Whether or not spring fever has you headed to the beach or heads down in your work, we all are craving that sun-kissed glow. As someone with medium skin, I’ve never been “pale” in the traditional sense. And in fact, I spent most of my life hiding from the sun because I tan so easily. Even with high SPF that my parents would force me to layer on, I would still return from a day at the pool, in the park, or at the beach with a tan… I loved it. My mom? Not so much…

Let’s Break It Down: How To Use Your Camera Professionally

You’ve seen the Instagram photos from your favorite brand, blogger or photographer and think to yourself, “Gee! Only if I had a better camera!” but the truth is that the camera you own is only a small part of the photography experience. I’d say that the composition of a good photo is 30% equipment, 50% knowing the basics of photography, and 20% editing. While you may not be ready to invest the thousands, yes, thousands into a full frame camera and multiple lenses – you can make a world of a difference by learning how to use your camera on manual settings…

6 Natural (& Effective) Ways to Hydrate Your Skin Almost Instantly

6 Natural (& Effective) Ways to Hydrate Your Skin Almost Instantly

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had chronically dry skin. In fact, I have vivid memories of me lying next to my mom and sister watching fantastic 90s rom-coms in bed like Runaway Bride and Miss Congeniality and my mom would use the tip of her long nails and carefully draw the letters “D-R-Y” on my legs. I couldn’t feel it, but boy could I see it. My skin was always dry, and either I was too much of a teenager to do something about it or I just didn’t know what products I truly needed to use, until now…

Everything You Need To Know Before You Get A Puppy

Everything You Need To Know Before You Get A Puppy

Getting Theo was one of the biggest decision that Sahir and I ever made. Getting married? Easy. Buying a house. Peasy. Getting Theo – thoroughly terrified. I was most skeptical because I had heard so many stories of people who had a puppy for a while and then gave them back or away within a short amount of time. I wanted to be sure that if we were getting a pup, this would not be the case for us. If we were getting a dog this furry friend would be in our lives for years to come. Would it be hard? Sure. But I figured that we could do it, what I didn’t expect was this…

The Two Year Test Is Real – Here’s What You Need To Know

No matter what your relationship status is, we’ve all watched one too many rom-coms that promise a slightly winding but relatively clear path to love. While I am self-diagnosed as the exception to every rule, I do know that things are generally not as simple as the movies and every path to love has it’s challenges. Across the board, people are getting married later in life and have established themselves as individuals before becoming a family. There are so many advantages to this, but also some inadvertent challenges.One question that everyone in a serious relationship asks at some point or another will be “how long before I know if this is forever?” The storybook answer is, of course…

This Fashion Trend Is Back – & Here To Stay

This Fashion Trend Is Back – & Here To Stay

Remember when you saw old pictures of your parents in the 70s & 80s and you were laughed while asking “Why did you think it was a good idea to have huge hair & those massive glasses?” Seems like what truly does go around, comes around. Not sure where you were in 2008 (if you say you weren’t born yet, I’ll die), but I was roaming the halls of my high school with my angled bangs, jeans without back pockets, and Birkenstock shoes (woof!). Some trends can stay in the past, looking at your stretchy tattoo choker necklaces – but some I welcome back with open arms, like this one…
