My Weekend Travel Essentials

This weekend I was able to travel out of the the city and enjoy myself in wine country. A weekend away was exactly what I needed. The open air, good wine, and fantastic company!

my weekend travel essentials

Weekend travel is short and sweet, but always worth it. I always make sure to pack my bag for anything I could need, especially when the weather is fluctuating. I love products that can multi-task or work with other pieces as it’s important to pack light while not feeling like you’re missing a limb.

The 5 Best Foundations for Oily Skin (By Someone with Oily Skin and a Real Budget)

Oh the joys of having oily skin!

And by joys I mean the complete and utter pain and despair that comes with making your skin look nice. It isn’t easy. Between the enlarged pores, the gross sheen of sweat, and the impossibility of finding the perfect foundation, I believe all oily skin people should be given awards or free treatments.

I’m just saying…

However, as someone with extremely oily skin I am always on the lookout for a great foundation that does at least one (if not all) of these things:

  1. Provides coverage of all discoloured spots
  2. Fills in my pores
  3. Stays on through the oil and sweat
  4. Provides a matte coverage that only looks dewy after a long day

If I can find a foundation that hits all four target areas then I am very happy. And after a lot of trial and error I have actually found five that I think are pretty great. And they are all different price ranges, so at least something will be affordable for everyone!

So here’s my list of the foundations that I believe will be the end of all gross, slidy foundation for oily skin owners!Read More

The 16 Beauty Products I Buy Over and Over Again

While I love trying out new products and using about every sample the store gives away, there are some tried and true products that will always be in my routine.

Today I’ve compiled a list of the products that have been staples in my beauty routine for years now. Some of them are more recent than others, but every single one is something that I think is necessary for me to look (and feel) my best. These products have gotten me through the rough times (Hello, finals week with my period) and have made sure I’m primped in the good moments. Everything in this list is perfection, so why not share?

Hopefully you will try some of these and they will make it into your routine just like they did mine!Read More
