GREEN MEANS GO...
and i'm here to tell you, when you see that green Codex packaging - GO FOR IT!
I was gifted the Exfoliating Wash + Skin Superfood products a few weeks ago + I have been so, so over the moon happy with these products (and communication with the brand!)Although these products were gifted, the review is 100% my own thoughts + is in no way influenced by the brand. I also only partner with brands who allow me creative freedom, align with my style + is a brand that fits my skincare ethics.

OK, there are...
so many different tools within the realm of beauty. To those who are new to my blog, I have been researching + made it a priority to understand the ins and outs of skincare, skin anatomy/function + the effect different ingredients have on different skin types (fun fact, skin types aren't technically a 'real thing' but I will do an entire blog post on this as well!) Skin is fascinating to me + it is an incredibly unique journey since everyone's skin is vastly different and requires its own unique routine to keep those sweet cheeks happy! Here's the deal, I love skin. I love skin care.
Anywho, I will do an updated post filling you in on who I am + my background in skincare but LET'S DIVE INTO GUA SHA!
Gua sha is one of those tools where it is safe for all to use (I am BIG on the safety/sanitary info. on tools), and I absolutely LOVE GUA SHA. It is my jam, so what are we waiting for?! Let's get skintimate with Gua Sha's.

HAPPY SKINCARE SUNDAY...
I hope you are masking it up this Mother's Day! OK, let's talk skincare. There are so many words thrown around in the world of skincare I want to take Sundays to focus on one word + break it down for you! This Sunday my skin has been feeling a bit dull + textured so I have been incorporating active detox masks to help oil control, keep my little pimple flare ups at a minimum + just give my skin the detox it deserves!
Friday is here...
+ boy do I feel like i'm running at a million miles per hour! There is nothing better than having a sunny Friday to accomplish all of those self-care things you may not have gotten to this week. For me, one of the tasks I desperately needed to accomplish today was giving my makeup brushes the deep clean they deserve.
This week's Friday Five I have focused on proper brush care + products to keep your brushes squeaky clean, conditioned + ready to create.
WHEN CHOOSING SKINCARE...
products on Amazon, it's incredibly important you are being mindful of the seller. Anyone can sell on Amazon meaning it's an easy place for slimeballs to make a quick buck. So, so sad. Here is quick insight into what this means + beauty products I recommend!
I've included products to give your skin a good, non-irritating detox, a tool to tackle those stubborn blackheads + a cute option for storing products - all from one place!
Happy friday babes,
With all of this free time I have had the chance to practice my makeup artistry; with a clear mind I’ve felt inspired, thoughtful + ready to create.
for this week's Friday Five, I’ve chosen products I’ve been pulling daily. These products are versatile, affordable + oh so pigmented! I've included a liquid highlight to have you glowing like a god or goddess and my current go-to brow product for bushy brows!
I'VE CHOSEN PRODUCTS...
I frequently go-to when doing a quick + easy natural dewy makeup look. The key to an airbrushed finish is tools + consistency. Use products that are more sheer in coverage, creamy, and blend seamlessly. powers can work, just pop on some liquid highlighter or cream blush over or a swipe of clear gloss on your lids.
I've highlighted products from my favorite brands: Anastasia Beverly Hills, Glossier, Bobbi Brown, Wet N'Wild, Nars, and Elf.
Oh hello there...
Friday, back again so soon? Seriously, it feels like these days are rolling into one at this point. In honor of Earth Day, I wanted to take the time to devote this week's Friday Five to the eco-friendly brands I love - because at the end of the day, we should love our earth as much as our skincare + support brands that love our earth, too!
Cheers to the weekend babes!
WATCH THE THINGS I DODGE IN MY SKINCARE ROUTINE on tiktok
have you been...
feeling as if your skin has been looking a bit more tired, dull + honestly, just down right exhausted lately? Me too.
Since being in quarantine my skin has been dehydrated + in need of some serious routine adjustment to keep my skin smooth like a baby. While we are inside, this can wreak havoc on not only our mental health, but also our skin. We've been trained to avoid sun exposure + that it is harmful for our skin (this is true) but it can also be incredibly beneficial when exposed using the right protective measures.
In this blog post I am going to breakdown our skin's moisture barrier (Acid Mantle) in our skin's anatomy, the benefits of a strong moisture barrier, the signs of a broken one + tips on repairing yours!
So what are you waiting for? Let's get glowing + healthy skin.
I am not a medical professional, licensed dermatologist, or a medical aesthetician (YET, hehe) so my intent is to share the knowledge I have gained through my own personal research + experience with my own skincare journey.
Just like that...
it's Friday again. This week I have been devoting much needed time to acts of self care. My self care heavily centers around skincare + overall wellbeing and after a very emotional last few days, self-care is the one thing that's perking me up. There is really nothing better than a relaxing evening that leaves you feeling radiant, beautiful + at peace.
This week i've included products from my favorite CBD brand, Soul Spring, a loofa to help with keratosis pilaris (along with other skin conditions), a mask to brighten your complexion, leopard print shower caps + a juicy giveaway!
I also would love if you wanted to drop your self-care ritual, tips, etc. into the comments for me + others to be inspired by as well!
