Product Profile: Drifter Organics

February 20, 2017

YAY. I’m really excited about this post because it’s the first in a new series called Product Profiles. I love finding new brands and products that aren’t really yet in the ‘mainstream’ and giving them a try. So I wanted to create a new series where I can then share them with you. The first brand I’m going to introduce you to is called Drifter Organics. Drifter Organics was founded by the mother-daughter duo Micaela and Dawn Marie Hoo, and…

My Favorites For Winter ❄️️

February 13, 2017

Hello hello! So today, as it’s blizzard-ing in New York and I thought it would be a good time to do a post about my favorite products to use during the winter. I definitely like to switch up my beauty routine for the winters here on the East Coast, compared to when I was living in California. I try to use a combination of very moisturizing products that are also natural, or more on the natural side. Dream Cream from…

Interview With Blogger Michelle Dufflocq

February 10, 2017

1. First off, how long have you been blogging for? I’ve been blogging for what feels like my entire life. I created my first blog when I was only eight years old, posting on and off until I was thirteen. But I didn’t really start getting into blogging until college, where I joined the team of my university’s fashion blog, Trendsetters at the U, my freshman year. After three years of blogging for my university, I knew this was something…

How To Make Your Hair Look Thicker

February 4, 2017

I get asked a lot on Instagram how I get my hair to look thicker. So I thought I’d do a whole post on some tips on making your hair look thicker than it really is! Color: If you have thinner hair (or even if you don’t) I always think when you have dimension in your hair, it makes it look thicker even if the dimension is very subtle (it doesn’t always have to be highlights!) If you feel like you…

DIY Vegan Hair Mask

January 31, 2017

Hello! I’m so excited about this post because it’s one of my first guest blog posts! This post is coming from Louisa Rose who runs her own blog called Body Health Love.  Since learning more about the effects of sulfites and chemicals used in traditional hair care products, I switched to organic shampoos and conditioners. Using gentle formulas on my hair helps keep it healthy and moisturized, and avoids irritating and drying out my scalp. I also enjoy experimenting with natural…

CALLING ALL BLOGGERS!

January 25, 2017

Hi, hello! I’ve been wanting to change up the content on my blog for quite awhile and I’ve been brainstorming A LOT about what would be interesting, fun and different. I’ve always wanted to connect more bloggers together, especially ones with a smaller following and share their story (because community, DUH). I’ve also always wanted to open up my blog to be more of a space for more than just me and more of a space where community can flourish…

What Glossier Looks Like On A Real Person

January 20, 2017

I seriously love Glossier. The aesthetic, the packaging, the showroom and the products (of course). I recently went to the showroom here in New York and it’s so amazing. The experience in itself is great, even if you’re going to just check it out. The way everything is set up is unlike any other store I’ve ever been to. And everyone who works there is so nice and helpful. Basically, if you’re in the New York area I HIGHLY recommend.…

How To: Low-Bun + Braids

January 17, 2017

Whenever the weather gets bad in New York, I basically never want to do my hair. So a low-bun becomes my go-to. As much as I love low-buns, I sometimes want to jazz it up a bit and make it look like I tried, so this is what I came up with. It takes another extra minute in the morning, and looks like I made a little bit more of an effort. Step 1: First, if I have the time,…

Easy Twist + Braid

January 10, 2017

  Now that I’m in a new apartment, I’ve been having to figure out how/where to take hair photos. I feel like I found something that finally works, but I’m still tweaking it a bit and figuring out what works best/what’s easiest. Hopefully now I’ll be able to post more hair tutorials in the very near future! However, the first one of the new year is this twisted look + a simple braid. It’s a pretty easy one, and looks…

How To Cleanse Your Face Using Only Oil

January 5, 2017

If you followed my blog in the past, then you’re well aware that I’m super into skincare and trying out new things. So I’m back at it again, trying probably the only beauty routine that has been the most out of my comfort zone which is cleansing my face with ONLY oil. Nothing else. No soap or anything that foams. Before starting to only use oil, I was using only Cetaphil to wash my face (double cleansing of course) and…
