Captain Blankenship Mermaid Waves

March 8, 2017

I’m always a fan of casual ‘cool-girl-everyday’ hair. I usually do use heat on my hair almost everyday (I know, not great) unless I’m wearing my hair up. I also always like to have some sort of wave to my hair, as opposed to having it straight so I’m always looking for products that will keep the waves in my hair, and also just make my hair look better (that’s always a plus!). I came across the brand Captain Blankenship…

Nighttime Pamper Routine Feat. Herbivore Botanicals

March 6, 2017

Recently, I’ve been SO busy that I have to pretty much plan time for when I should wind down and pamper myself.

First off, my new apartment has a bathtub so…

Homemade Vegan Lip Balm

March 3, 2017

I really love do it yourself beauty products because I’m in control of what ingredients go into them. Many products on the market contain harmful chemicals or fillers that I try to steer clear of. I enjoy utilizing all-natural beauty products because they contain only wholesome ingredients. Plus, this particular recipe is extremely simple to make! You could even make a girls night out of it, invite your friends over, and make your own lip balms together. Who doesn’t love…

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…

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…

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,…
