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.

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…

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!).

A Surefire Solution To Gym-Proof Your Hair

Long hair? Yes, I care. Because it hurts! As if tension headaches weren’t real enough (yes, they’re a thing) the only thing worse than dealing with an unsupportive sports bra, is an unsupportive bun on the top of your head that is the first to give up on the workout. How many times do you re-tie your hair during a workout? Survey says, “over 3” That’s madness and there’s a better way…

We Couldn’t Believe These 6 Fashion Finds Were From Amazon

We Couldn’t Believe These 6 Fashion Finds Were From Amazon

Remember when you used to buy books on Amazon? Uh yeah… me neither. Jeff Bezos knew what he was doing when he launched a service that gets you exactly what you need in one place for quickly as possible. I’m pretty sure my last Amazon box consisted of a 26 ft dog leash, shampoo for Sahir, a sweater for me and a portable charger. What can I say? We’re prime-obsessed millennials. It’s avocado toast, immediate gratification and Amazon prime – order is optional…

After sending about 9 direct messages videos, literally sitting at my desk to followers, I decided to finally just record a quick video for you guys to be able to reference and watch at your leisure…
