Battle of the Face Masks

Hi Loves,

Even though this has been a very odd winter thus far the wind has not been great for my skin. I realized that I’ve collected a few different face masks recently that all look amazing, so I’ve decided to pin them against each other to see which one I like the best. So here is what you need to know about my skin before we get into this. I have combination skin, oily T zone, but my cheeks and around my mouth tend to get very dry. I use the Ponds moisturizer almost every night after I wash my face, but I won’t be using that after these masks unless the instructions direct me to use a moisturizer after. All of these products are available at Sephora and I will have links and prices below.I tried a different mask each night over 4 days to see how they felt, what they smell like, and how they changed my skin (if at all).

The first mask I tried was the Sephora brand Algae Sleeping Mask. I was not sure how it would work, it feels like a gel and had a blue tint to it, and it smells like plants but in a good way. Continue reading

Hi Loves,

As you may know I’ve been slowly getting into makeup recently. I don’t wear it everyday, but I love having it available to play with when I’m in the mood. A new item to the makeup scene is the Bite Beauty Multistick, which I was lucky enough to receive in three shades, curtesy of Influenster, to test and review. I do own other Bite Beauty products that I bought for myself upon the recommendation of my good friend (and makeup artist) David Lucas.

Sweetgreen Fenway Opening

Hi Loves,

Is it just me, or in the summer do we tend to eat differently than in the winter? I find that my body craves less heavy foods and more fruits and vegetables. People have been telling me about Sweetgreen for a while now, I even have a headband from an event they sponsored, but I never actually ventured into one until a few weeks ago when my roommate came back raving about their kale caesar salad. Fun fact about me, I love kale salads, and theirs is delicious!

Confessions of a *Beginner* Makeup Addict

Hi Loves,

Lets just say makeup has never really been my forte. I’ve always had MAJOR respect for anyone who can do their makeup and not come away looking like a clown, but when it came to doing my own makeup I stuck with some mascara, a tinted lipgloss and called it a day.

That said, I’ve gained more interest in makeup just in the last month or so. I do have a lot of products that I’ve gotten in swag bags from different events, as presents, or that I picked up myself but never got around to using.

I think my official addiction started when I was in NYC and met up with David Lucas (AKA @Davicrocket on Instagram) and he helped me pick out an amazing lip color from Bite Beauty. Ever since then I’ve been obsessed with finding lip colors that work on me, especially matte ones. Then I thought ‘Hmm maybe you should do some eye makeup to go with the lip colors’. Now I’ve been browsing the internet and I placed a couple of orders from MAC Cosmetics and Colourpop Cosmetics.
