4 Things That Helped My Adult Acne Outbreaks

What is it about being an adult that makes the universe want to pile it all on? As if having a mortgage, learning to cook, and finally getting around to folding the laundry that’s been sitting in the dryer wasn’t enough – now adult acne starts to rear its ugly head (pun slightly intended). Even though I study this -ish regularly, I still fall victim…

Hyaluronic Acid Sounds Scary, But Is It?

Per pretty much every chemistry class, rule #1 was no acids near the face. So be forewarned that this post is breaking that rule and you probably should too. Now, this doesn’t mean that you should casually crack open a beaker and drizzle it on your face – but you should look to learn more about certain acids that are good for the skin. . .

7 THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU ARE WAITING FOR LOVE

I started writing relationship posts a few years ago, but really picked up the pace when I realized how much you guys enjoyed them. All of my top 10 posts are about love & marriage (with this exception of this one year-round nail color post that just slays) and I love that you guys enjoy reading my favorite topic to write about. It’s crazy how many…

7 Trader Joe’s Products You Need To Try

Can’t decide if it’s awesome or appalling that this is now the third Trader Joe’s post that I’ve done, but let’s go with awesome. TJ’s is such a destination for affordable specialty items and it’s easy to get overwhelmed if you don’t know what you’re searching for. These 7 items are new finds that I’ve found and I’m including a full checklist if you below…

Why Mexico City Should Be The Next Trip You Make

My sister and brother in law were actually the masterminds behind this impromptu trip to Mexico City. They planned a much-needed family vacation for our side of the family. Both my sister and I travel more often with our in-laws so it was nice to do this one trip with our mom! They are both travel gurus and go to the most incredible places and always find the best insider tips. Sahir and I knew that this trip would be one that we would have to do little to no planning and everything would be perfect because those two are amazing when it comes to this kinda thing…

Don’t Buy More Skincare Until You Read This

Raise your hand if you’re a skincare junkie – just me? Okay fine, I’m a nerd. I love reading about the science behind skincare products. I want to know about the ingredients, the molecular makeup and the potential side effects of combining different products. Skincare has become the topic of the year, but how much do we really know about what we are putting on…

You’re Going To Love These Amazon Finds Under $20

Another week, another Amazon post. Welp! These are my latest Amazon conquests and of course, I had to share them with you. I’ll admit, I wasn’t quite sure about all of them and in fact, number four is actually something Sahir ordered but credit where credit is due, it’s a good one. This edition of “True Life: I’m Obsessed With Amazon” features only items that…

This Little Known Product is a Game Changer For Brassy Brunettes

I was probably 15 when I first got my hair colored. I wanted highlights, but wasn’t sure what the right color for me was. My mom – unsupportive of my mission – left it up to me to pick my poison. I chose a caramel brown (in hindsight, this was all wrong for me). But it wasn’t long before the wrong brown turned into the wrong blonde. I realized that my color-treated hair got lighter with the sun. A few weeks went by and I was so traumatized by color that I threw in the towel and dyed my hair black. – Jet black – way to dark for me as well. (Insert face palm emoji here), until I found this…

Stop Everything & Rewatch These Teen Dramas Immediately

Okay I’ll admit it. I love watching TV. Like probably a little too much. In fact, I’m borderline obsessed. I know what you’re thinking – hey that’s not that bad. Everyone likes to Netflix & chill (the real kind) and plus TV shows are pretty much cinematic masterpieces that tell compelling stories that need to be told. But no, I don’t watch those show. Narcos,…
