Over the past 2 weeks, my heart has been very heavy. It is outrageous that the black community still needs to fight to have a fair voice and faces social injustice. Racism in our country has gone on for too long and it must end. No one should be fearful of their life or be treated differently because of the color of their skin. I have been looking inward to assess how I can be better and really show up to support the movement for social equality and justice.

I have researched and found a few solid ways to support: through research and education, so we can better understand other's points of views and experiences; through donations to organizations such as Black Li...

In an effort to mix it up a bit and bring some fun to quarantine, I decided to create a fun video inspired by some of my fave new arrivals from ELOQUII and some of my fave emojis for ELOQUII looks as emojis! Feeling stuck the past few days wanting to create something new, I decided to put together these fun looks full of character and happiness! I hope you enjoy it!

Coming in HOT, friends, today I'm dishing on my current skincare routine and skincare faves! Skincare is one of the most asked questions/requests I receive over on Instagram, and I'm super excited to share my routine with you! 

I do want to preface this post with this: everyones skin is different. Things that work for me, may not work for your skin as we all have differing areas of concern. My personal areas of concern are redness, enlarged pores, sensitive skin, and anti-aging. I look for products that minimize redness, reduce pores, brighten skin, and help with the appearance of fine lines. If these areas are differing than your, I encourage you to keep reading as I d...

How is everyone doing in quarantine?! I've personally had my shares of up's and down's- most recently down's, but I've been trying to remind myself to stay positive. Even though there is a lot to be sad about right now, there is also a lot to be thankful for- like having a roof over my head, or still having a job that allows me to work from home, or the fact that my family and friends are healthy. It's definitely trying times for us all, but this is the new norm and I'm guessing it will be this way for awhile so I have mentally prepared myself to embrace it.

It's also no surprise that quarantine has brought a whole shift in our day-to-day fashion. My online shopping has...

If you, like me, have been living in lounge clothes during quarantine then todays post is going to be right up your alley! Earlier this week I focused on super cute pajama sets, and today I'm focusing on my normal go-to for at-home lounging- robes!!

Ever since I was little, I have been a robe girl. I think maybe this stems from seeing my mom in robes as a young girl, but I've always found them to be feminine. Enter also old Hollywood photos of stars from the 1930s and 1940s wearing fancy and beautiful robes in their dressing rooms- they just look so beautiful and classy. While I love robes, shopping for them can be difficult with sizing. 

 

When I used to travel 75% of th...
