What if there was a beauty trick that made you look and feel pretty even when you’re bloated, hungover, sleep-deprived, and pale AF (because #WinterIsComing)? And I don’t mean wearing a Beyoncé mask. (PS, do they make those?) I’m talking about lash extensions, which I truly believe is the #1 beauty splurge every woman should […]

On the necessity scale of 1 to coffee, cleansing facial wipes are a grande triple nonfat latte (especially when you’re tired/hungover/on-the-go/all of the above). They’re perfect for getting makeup off and cleaning your skin when you just can’t muster the energy for a sink situation — and we all know how important it is to […]

While I’m obsessed with my anti-aging products and regimes, I have not hopped on the injection train quite yet. But that’s not to say that I haven’t been collecting knowledge, tips, and doctor reccs for when […]

‘Tis the season! HARK the angels! Joy to the world! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The time of year when you swear you won’t gain 5-8 pounds again but end up saying ‘fuck it’ by mid-December and spend your evenings sipping chugging red wine and indulging in decadent food instead of at the gym because […]

Showering is overrated, AMIRITE? Oh, you think I’m gross now? Well your mom’s gross. Sorry I didn’t mean that. Your mom is an angel. But seriously, here are six reasons you can skip the sprinkle. 1. You don’t have time. Well you DID have time but then you settled into a Sex and the City […]

At an event a few weeks ago, I noticed some girls with jewels on their faces, admittedly scoffed at it, and figured this was just some gimmicky thing the event presenter put on (“Come by the Bud Light Lime face jewelry booth for a buzz and a bedazzle!”) and not a new trend I needed to […]

Girls are notorious for being late. And no I don’t mean ALL girls so you punctual bitches can refrain from being offended and/or typing out a comment detailing your punctuality and how it’s equated to your superior success so all of us late assholes can feel like loser pieces of shit. Because we already feel […]

I am all about some female empowerment and I appreciate the strides beauty brands and (some) media outlets have taken to encourage confidence, promote inner beauty, and break down unrealistic standards brought to us in part by Photoshop. But there’s just a touch of inauthenticity when the messaging comes from a multi-billion dollar company and their […]

At this point, me telling you I’m hair-obsessed is like telling you vodka makes you prettier. WE ALL KNOW ALREADY. And as of late, I’ve been seriously oil-obsessed (remember this post just last week?). So let’s talk oil + hair. Unless you have the thinnest, finest, most oily hair on the planet, chances are you can […]

First of all, we shouldn’t be getting sunburn. It’s not cute and it increases your risk of skin cancer by like, a million. But sometimes it happens (even to me, as judgey as I am about it). If you’re out in the sun, I say always wear SPF 30 or higher (YOU CAN STILL TAN […]

Spoiler alert: I’m going to talk about cleansing your face with oil. DON’T HANG UP! Just hear me out. Oil has long been known for its makeup removing properties and of course, the moisturizing factor. As we all know, the more moisturized the skin, the more it glows and the YOUNGER YOU LOOK. Do I need […]

Summer means fun and sun, tanks and tans, beach and boys, pedis and pina coladas, bronzes and blackouts (what?). But also: Sweaty armpits. Bummer. The good news is: Deodorant. Here are the best sticks for dry pits (and a spray) whether you’re a sweaty sister or heated hippie chick.   Serious Sweater You can always […]

I have ’90s nostalgia like nobody’s business and I love to reminisce about the beauty products I was obsessed with back when I had braces, terrible bangs, no idea how to match foundation to my skin, and thought Bath & Body Works was the holy grail of life. Here are a handful of the best […]

True life: I have always been judged for my toothpaste selections and I’m 100% with that. Since elementary school, I’ve used Tom’s of Maine natural toothpaste and whenever I went to the dentist, they would praise my clean, cavity-free teeth (thanks, Mom). Confession: In my early twenties, I didn’t go the dentist for six years […]

Unless you were one of those unicorn children with a perfectly polished stay-at-home and/or overbearing mother who made sure your hair was always on point from birth ’til now (and is probably still meddling), you had at least one to six periods in your life when your hair was an absolute WTF disaster…ESPECIALLY if you […]

Spring weather is here, which means time to sit out on your patio with a glass of moscato, listen to Drake, and paint your pretty little nails. I’ll hit the salon for pedis from time to time, but I really have taken to painting my own fingernails at home (especially with my fave at-home gel), […]

Newsflash: Sun exposure is the #1 factor in aging, so if you’re not SPF’ing it up when you’re outside, you’ve only got yourself to blame when wrinkles and sun spots show up to ruin your selfie life. And it’s not like you have to smear Banana Boat all over your perfectly made up face; thanks to […]

Confession: When I got my eyelash extensions removed after a year and a half, I rushed to my waxing studio to have brow whisperer Raquel work her magic so my eye area wouldn’t feel quite so unpretty (RIP Left Eye). But it was while she shaped and shaded that she told me to use castor oil for […]

Cancel that Botox appointment (for now); it’s ANTI-AGING BEAUTY BREAKTHROUGH TIME! You may have heard about Marula oil being the new big thang on the product scene, and if not, BOY OH BOY am I excited to explain. But first, let it be known I am a longtime lover of oil for your skin–I will […]

I don’t really know how else to say this without sounding braggy, so I’ll just blurt it out: I hardly ever get blemishes. BUT WAIT, don’t hate me yet—my skin is dry AF, so while you ladies with more oily complexions may be pimple-prone, I’m aging more rapidly than you as we speak. Crows feet […]

‘Tis the season for sequins, scarves, mistletoe, parties, cookies, red wine, weight gain, and most of all…..GIVING. I can’t provide you with any tips to avoid the December Six (pounds) because I literally have no idea, but I can tell you what to get for the ladies in your life this holiday season. If you’re […]

Right now, I’m estimating there are approximately 923472984398265 lip glosses in my apartment. One of these days I’m going to find them all and lay them out for a photo that will blow everyone’s mind (including my own). But that being said…..I think I have found the most perfect lip gloss ever created. But before […]

NEWSFLASH: Dry hand season is upon us. Great. If I’m not fully lubed up from now until March, you would mistake my mitts for an 86-year-old’s. Thankfully, there are a plethora of products to keep granny hands at bay. Here are my awards for the best. All-natural: HollyBeth Organics Orange Peppermint Shea Butter Cream ($25). Not […]
