My Winter Skin Has Been Rejuvenated Thanks to Desert Essence

In the winter it is really difficult to achieve “glowing” or refreshed looking skin when the climate is literally sucking all moisture from it. Recently, however, I’ve received a number of compliments on how “fresh” and “flawless” my skin has looked and I really owe it to Desert Essence. I have kept my skincare routine very simple this winter, with my main focus being on retaining moisture. For the most part, I use one facial moisturizer for both day and night, occasionally…

My Guide For Traveling to Cuba!

Last week I traveled to Cuba to celebrate my best friend Brittany’s birthday, and to say that it was amazing would be an understatement.

Vajacial: I Decided to Get a Facial..for My Vagina

Now, before I get started let me clarify that a Vajacial is for the outer part of your vagina — the pelvic area specifically. Not inside like vaginal reconstruction or rejuvenation, ha! Anyhoo, I came across an article recently about an editor who had visited Haven Spa in NYC to get what they call a “Peach Smoothie,” which is essentially a facial but for your vagina. For this treatment they gently cleanse the area with a special exfoliating scrub, followed…

So Excited to Announce that I’m Now a Glossier Rep!

As you all know I absolutely adore the brand Glossier! I’ve mentioned this previously but it’s definitely the “cool girl” beauty brand of the moment with its no frills and all chic approach. Last Friday as I was getting ready for a night out, I got an e-mail from one of the Glossier Community Managers, Samantha, letting me know that she loves the content I’ve been producing and that they are interested in me becoming a rep for the brand!…
