Video – My Skincare Routine

Posted In: BeautifuLife | Beauty | video
I'm fairly new to the skincare world, but even in my short time getting into it all, I've definitely seen a noticeable improvement in my skin. From its texture and firmness to its moisture levels and overall tone, taking the extra minutes in the morning and at night to care for my skin properly has been a great investment of both time and money. My best advice: don't wait as long as I did to get into it (I'm 32 and only just started a little less than a year ago). Starting early has its preventative measures and ensures[...]

Some of you might have already realized this, but chopping my hair off and bleaching it several months back was the deed that inspired me to start "taking blogging seriously". From that fateful hair makeover, to getting my right ear pierced in 3 places at once, to taking a risk and leaving full-time work to invest more time in the things that I love to do so desperately, and moving back to the Bay Area, this year has been quite a transitional one for me to say the least. Aren't they all though? What is a year of your life[...]

In this week's #BEAUTIFULIFEHACKS video I share 3 beauty looks that I've been relying on heavily for Summer, featuring some of my new favorite beauty products!

Clinique Is Definitely Summer Ready.

Yesterday I made my way over to Los Cerritos Mall to partake in the Clinique Colour Pro event with Stephanie Flor. They had 3 Summer Looks prepared: Power Burst, Innocent Flush, and Summer Chic. What Stephanie did on me was a mix of Power Burst which entailed a bold lip, and Summer Chic which had a dewy highlighting element. The products she used on me here are Clinique Pop Lip Colour in Poppy Pop and the Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight, and I actually really love both products. From afar, the Poppy Pop lipstick looks very[...]
