My Favorite Products: November

With being a beauty blogger I am of course constantly scouting and trying new products each week or even each day. However, I feel it’s important to have a routine in the products you use and stick to what works best — this is when you really see results. So, I decided that each month I’d highlight the products I use most consistently that don’t necessarily fit into my weekly reviews. Here are my favorite products from November. MAC Studio…

Beauty Must-Haves For an Impromptu Night Away from Home

The other day my girlfriend Natalie and I were discussing items that women should always have in their purse when going out with a guy — you know, just in case you decide not to go home… If you’re like me, you usually travel with a mid to smaller sized cross body bag or clutch when out on the weekends, so we have to be strategic. Here are some purse / wallet friendly beauty must-have items I’d recommend keeping on…

My November Birchbox Products!

Birchbox is truly the easiest way to test out a variety of new beauty products and I highly recommend it for all beauty lovers. Here are my products for November! Clinique Cream Shaper For Eyes ($16.50) A.K.A. eyeliner, haha. I love when brands give a fancy name to very simple products. My phases with eyeliner go in and out, I’ll spend months not wearing it to achieve a more “fresh faced” look, and then I’ve have a phase where I’m…

Get Baby Soft Feet, Really!

Its that time of the year again where I find myself in layers and layers of clothing just to manage the walk to the train in the morning for work. The last thing on anyone’s minds is what exactly my feet look like, but this is the best time to really prep them for a flawless spring debut. Also, it’s cuffing season. Who wants to rub an ashy heel on their significant other while cuddling? Aside from getting regular pedicures…

ARROW Hydrate Soothing Facial Mist

I really wish I had discovered this product sooner — I absolutely LOVE the ARROW Hydrate Soothing Facial Mist ($12). First off, ARROW is a brand created by Birchbox that specializes in lightweight, long-wearing makeup and skincare to accommodate an active lifestyle. The brand has makeup products like a cheek tint and color enhancing lip balm that actually stay on throughout a workout. I’ve never been the type to want to wear makeup to the gym, but this is very tempting!…

Swipe Fresh!

I don’t think I’ve stopped sweating for about 2 weeks straight. The heat and humidity in NYC has become literally unbearable — and I’m saying this as someone who got back from Jamaica not too long ago. While away I stumbled across the Instagram account for this product called Swipe, which is a single-use deodorant wipe. I’m always here for products that bring instant freshness and can help me cope with these sticky hot summer days; not to mention it…

Drugstore Find: Mayfair Soap Foundry Sugar Scrub

This weekend I stopped by Target to stock up on a few beauty items I’d run low on and decided to browse the aisles for anything else that caught my eye. I’d been meaning to get a new body scrub and I was particularly drawn to the vibrant green Mayfair Soap Foundry Sugar Scrub in Sea Lily Jasmine ($8.99). I hadn’t previously heard of the brand but the packaging was great — very chic and simplistic, so I quickly took…

Recap: My Jamaican Vacation!

I’m back! So sorry for the long hiatus, I was on a beautiful vacation in my home island of Jamaica. I don’t believe I’ve mentioned this as of yet, but I was born there and moved to the U.S. when I was two years old —I actually have not been back since I was 5. So, this was a very overdue trip for me as an adult. I went away with my entire immediate family and we stayed at the…

I Love My: Hair Removal Gel By Veet!

Something I frequently discuss with other women is hair removal — most notably, hair removal “down there.” What’s the best way to go about it? What lasts the longest? What is the least painful? Honestly, it’s all about preference and finding the right products for your skin and needs. Personally, I’ve tried a few methods — shaving, normal waxing, sugar waxing and removal gels. My favorite to-date has to be hair removal gel. For a long time I would shave…
