The Results of Dry Brushing

      Are you one of those people who uses exfoliating body products like salt or sugar scrubs, but you really don't see much of a difference when you use them? Even if you use them consistently? Yeah that was me too. No matter how much I scrubbed or how consistently I used body scrubs in the shower, my skin felt more or less the same. So when I came across dry brushing, which is basically exfoliating your body but using a brush and not a scrub, I gave it a shot and wanted to see if it would be more effective than using a body scrub.

A Deep Dive into the World of Biologique Recherche

      During my hiatus from the blog I fell hard  - and I mean, real hard, for the French skincare brand Biologique Recherche. Some of you may know this brand solely from their cult famous toner - P50 1970, which not surprisingly from its price tag is known in the beauty world as the "Rolls Royce" of toners. I personally have known about this infamous toner since probably college, but even back then it was super expensive and the poor college in student in me could barely afford my Kiehls Ultra Facial Moisturizer back then. But now we're here in the present time and I have a whole Biologique Recherche lineup to talk about and explain why my skincare routine consist of a majority of products from the brand.

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!

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.
