#SkincareSunday: My Favorite Skin Refreshing Product

Hi lovelies!

I thought I’d share with you all a product that has recently become one of my staples. As most of you all know, I have chronic dry skin. So even though I use a tinted moisturizer- my skin can end up looking a bit ashy by the end of the day. After becoming fed up with the baby powder look I was sporting, I decided to look for a spray to refresh my skin throughout the day. After doing research, I went into Ulta initially set on the Dermalogica Ultra Calming Mist. However I stumbled across something different and decided to try it! I have to admit that the packaging is what caught my eye initially. I mean- it’s gorgeous.

A Little Bit of Fun: My 18th Birthday Shoot

Hi guys!

If you didn’t know already, I celebrated my 18th birthday last week. It was a lot of fun – from spending time with family, traveling, and being surrounded by great friends. I’m honestly so blessed and grateful. One of the best parts was getting to do a photoshoot with the wonderful photographer (and great friend) : Faith Holmes. Her Instagram account is: @faithfilledframes. She is so talented and the pictures came out great. I thought I’d share some of the photos with you all!

#SkincareSunday: Footcare Routine

Hi lovelies!

I hope your week has gone well. With celebrating my own and several friends’ birthdays and moving back into my dorm I’ve been quite occupied. But I’m never too busy to get a post out there for y’all. The WiFi in my dorm was acting up last night and I was praying that I would be able to get this #SkinCareSunday post out. But it’s working now so all is well 🙂

Summer is a time where we like to show off our feet in cute sandals and flip-flops. But having unkept feet can take away from our ever so cute footwear. After playing soccer and doing ballet for several years my feet had taken quite a toll. But over the past couple years I’ve been able to rehabilitate my formerly busted feet. So although summer is coming to an end, I thought I’d share with you my footcare routine. Let’s get started!

#SkincareSunday: Combating Eczema Scars

So my last post was all about how I cope with my eczema. It’s always a relief to finally have it under control. But that is just one of the steps. After a fairly bad flare up the aftermath can be rather ugly. Anyone who has eczema can tell you about the annoying thing that is: eczema scars. After finally getting your skin back to normal, you’re still plagued with these unsightly reminders of your recent flare up. So I thought I would share with you all how to slowly (but surely) get rid of them.

Skincare Sunday: How I Tame My Eczema

Another week has came and gone…and it’s time for another #Skincare Sunday. This post is a little more personal for me. From a young age I have suffered from eczema, and my close friends know that it’s something that I am very insecure about. If you don’t know what eczema is, it is a condition that causes your skin to be dry, irritated, and inflamed. You often get patches/rashes on various parts of your body that itch horribly. Not only is it uncomfortable, but it also can be unsightly to other people who don’t know that it isn’t contagious. Eczema doesn’t have a cure, but there are ways to tame it. I recently had the worst flare up in my life during my first semester of college. It really took a toll on my confidence (my roommate had to endure several emotional breakdowns), but I was able to get it back under control. So I thought I would share with you my current regimen that I use to prevent flare ups. My skin is so much happier now 🙂

Your lips are a sensitive part of your skin that people often forget. This summer is slowly but surely coming to an end. However, I thought that I’d share with you my summer lipcare routine. Dry, crusty lips are never a good look. So if you want to see how I get soft, kissable lips keep on reading!

#SkinCareSunday: Quick Lifestyle Tips for Clear Skin

Hi guys! As this week is coming to and end, I hope you all are doing well. Hopefully the weekend gave you time to rest and recuperate for another work-week. Right now I have a series called #SkinCareSunday and I decided to give you all some tips for getting clear, radiant skin today. All of these things I have personally done and seen success from!

P.S. — sorry for the late post. I’ve had a quite jam packed weekend, and didn’t get to blogging til later tonight. I attended the Sam Smith concert yesterday, which was amazing. I definitely would recommend that you buy a ticket for his tour. He is an absolutely wonderful performer.

So now let’s get started 🙂

#SkincareSunday : My Dry Skin Routine

Hi guys!

I hope your week has gone wonderfully! I thought I would start a new series called #SkincareSundays. Skin can be the ultimate indicator of health. Most of the time, we associate glowing, ethereal skin with an healthy inside. It’s also the first thing people see when they encounter you! However, it’s not always the easiest to tame. I’ve never encountered anyone who hasn’t struggled at some point in their life with their skin! But I’ve gotten to a place where I have a routine that works like clockwork. So for this first #SkincareSunday post I’m sharing with you all my skin routine.
