As the weather finally starts to cool down {I know, I’m thankful too after these scorchers} I start to notice a change in my skin. And considering I’ve spent all summer trying to maintain my complexion, these new concerns are disappointing. Luckily I’ve had some help making this transition.

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!

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.

A Look Into My Nightly Skincare Routine

You know what I talk a lot about? My skin. Why? Because it’s the first thing everyone sees.

My skin is my temple and I treat it well. After years of awful acne and inflammation like none other, I have found a routine that makes my skin happy, which makes me happy. Today I thought I would share my routine with you, in hopes that it will also benefit your pores.

Quick Note: I have fair, oily, inflamed skin. If you have dark, dry skin, you might consider trying another path. Buying products and using routines geared toward your skin is very important.Read More
