Beauty Reboot - Returning From My Hiatus

      Hello all!! I know it's been a while, the last time I published a post was over a year ago in July 2017! After my wedding last year, the blog just fell by the wayside and yes, I unfortunately got lazy about getting back into it. But now I'm back, refreshed, and ready to share new beauty favorites, beauty hauls, fashion buys, and more! However, read on ahead for my new philosophy when it comes to approaching the blog.

Product Review: Foreo Luna Mini 2

      I can't believe the last time I posted was almost two months ago! Time flies, and I still feel like I have a ton of planning to do for the wedding. It's less than 3 months away at this point! Since the date is fast approaching, I've been trying to keep my skin in top condition. After a recent bout of breakouts after I came back to New York from California, it's now back to normal and right now I only have blemishes that are in the healing stage. I attribute the Foreo Luna Mini 2 cleansing tool to a part of the reason why I have been able to keep my skin clear. And yes, I had been using the Clarisonic Mia prior to the Luna and let me tell you the reasons why I think the Mini is superior to the Clarisonic.

Wardrobe Refresh And Rehaul

      I have a confession to make - I've been neglecting my wardrobe lately. Recently I've been finding myself wearing the same very few outfits on rotation because I've been unhappy with most of the pieces in my wardrobe. I haven't read Marie Kondo's infamous book about decluttering, but I have been using her philosophy of "does it bring you joy" rule in editing my wardrobe. Last weekend, I filled up one garbage bag worth of clothing (which I plan to donate) and it actually felt really good! I still have a long way to go, and I may or may not have a secret Pinterest board to have a bird's eye view of the wardrobe I'm hoping to curate, but here are some recent purchases I've made to give my wardrobe a refresh.

Product Review: Glossier Invisible Shield Sunscreen

      Every time Glossier releases a product beauty enthusiasts (me included) go crazy! The Invisible Shield was no exception. I mean, a clear gel like sunscreen? I'm religious about wearing my sunscreen everyday, but it took me ages to find a sunscreen that didn't feel oily, greasy, or overall gross on my skin (my favorite sunscreen is the Urban Factor Sunscreen by Shiseido, read my review here). The first day Glossier launched Invisible Shield, I was sure to purchase a bottle for myself because I just had to see what a serum like sunscreen felt like.

Product Empties - Spring 2017

      It's empties time! It usually takes me a while to do empties posts, but shortly after my most recent empties post I actually finished up quite a few more products! It's mostly skincare as I don't really finish makeup products that often (the Hera Cushion Foundation and my soon to be empty Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundations are the few super rare exceptions) since I tend to wear the same makeup look everyday.
