Goodbye August and hello September! Things are finally cooling down here in Los Angeles, does this mean fall is coming early this year? As many of you know, I do my monthly favorites every now and then on my YouTube channel; I’ve decided to bring the concept of beauty favorites over here to my blog. I love doing these because I get to hear about YOUR favorites as well, creating a welcoming community of wonderful ladies. Today’s post is not necessarily my monthly favorites, since I’d use these products all-year round regardless of season!
There is so much beauty to see in the world; the ability to travel and see it instead of looking at photos is one of the best luxuries in life. To be able to experience a different culture, climate, and meet new people is a truly unforgettable treasure. But planning a vacation can be so stressful that you need a vacation after your vacation! Packing can take so much time, and the stress can make it easy to forget things. I have some awesome tips for you to make things a little bit easier that take care of some of those little details we often forget before we embark on a journey.
If you were to sit with almost any blogger, they’d tell you that everything started from a passion that they wanted to share with people. With this post, I want to share what I’ve learned in my journey as a blogger and hope to inspire you to follow your dreams. Maybe you’ve been thinking about what it’d be like to start writing about something that you love and publishing it on a blog, but you’re worried that your website will get lost in the midst of the thousands of blogs that are already established. Take it from a girl who started blogging for fun and found overwhelming support and success; all it takes is that drive and a few little tips to start!
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just have a go-to makeup look that takes you about five minutes or less, with products you know will stay on your face throughout the long work day that will just work for EVERYTHING, especially in the office? Well… I’m here to help! Finding the perfect everyday, office-appropriate makeup look that doesn’t take too much time can be difficult. Depending on your work setting, you may even have particular restrictions about makeup. Don’t get discouraged though; even if you have to tone it down just a little, there’s no reason why you can’t still look and feel beautiful while being professional and elegant.
Finding the right foundation is kind of like finding the right man; there’s a lot of trial and error, a lot of heartbreak, and a lot of time wasted with the wrong ones. But when you meet your match, you want to cherish it and never let it go. Just like men, there are many foundations to choose from so it’s almost impossible to know where to start, and there are a lot of empty promises. But there are some good ones out there, I promise (both foundation AND men)!
Is it just me, or did July pass by way too fast? I have several events this weekend, so I’ve been planning out my outfit and hair and as you may know, I recently cut my hair pretty short and after reading your wonderful suggestions and comments, I decided to film a hair tutorial for this week’s Five Minute Friday. I know you guys have been asking for awhile now, so here it is!
Being a beauty YouTuber, I have to take really good care of my skin. It’s my canvas to show you guys what I do best and share my creations with you. So when I want to give my skin some TLC, I treat myself to a spa day! As much as I love being pampered and getting a special facial or treatment from someone else, sometimes it’s just not realistic for me. I don’t always have the time and it can get expensive. Plus, when I can use amazing products that give me the results I’m looking for, there’s no need to!
