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 […]

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 […]

Welcome to HELL, everyone. Sorry, I mean summer. (Same temperature; I get confused.) A few weeks ago I was sitting outside with a guy friend and without even skipping a beat in conversation, grabbed a napkin and put it down my shirt to wipe my boob sweat. Thank God he was just a friend, but […]

You guys, I’ve tried a whole lotta’ beauty products; I’ve praised many, I’ve dissed others, and I’ve chosen not to write about some. I actually had an incident recently when a company sent me a pricier product and kept stalking asking me about when the post was going up. I finally had to say, “Listen, I […]

In April, Nair flew me to NYC to shoot a series of “summer style and beauty video vignettes” and I wasn’t exactly sure what it entailed, but a few days before the shoot I received this in an email: “Are you comfortable in a swimsuit on camera?” I’m sorry, what? Did you say swimsuit? On […]

In case you haven’t read the Internet or a magazine or watched TV or talked to anyone for the past decade, it has been proven that sun exposure ages your skin like nothing else. I know, crazy right? I think of the days in my early twenties (#SpringBreak BITCHES!) when I would bake in the […]

With all the fancy, new-fangled beauty brands out there, it’s easy to forget about the old guys. Estee Lauder? Sounds like a grandma. And is Avon still a thing? Or just the next hot celebrity kid name? And then there’s Clinique–maker of that giant bar soap (what a bitch to travel with) and old-school yellow […]

Colder weather is officially here, so this week’s PRIMP-approved products are inspired by one of the biggest beauty battles I have personally fought for as long as I can remember… dry skin. And I didn’t stutter when I said fought; me against my skin is like World War 3 in the dry dead of winter. It’s […]

It’s breast cancer awareness month (duh), which means #AllPinkEverything! Not only are there fun, new products to scoop up, but you’re giving back to an important cause when you buy them. Talk about a no brainer. Pretty In My Pocket chose some of their fave give-back goodies, so I had to share. Get ye to […]

If you can believe it, my shower is stocked with a lot of products (sadly, no detachable shower head, though). I have multiple shampoos and conditioners, soaps, scrubs, face washes/exfoliators, etc. because I like to have options (also why I overpack for every trip). But as a single lady, the one surprising item you will […]

When I told people I was heading to Asheville for a weekend trip, you would have thought I told them I was going to Figi…with Ryan Gosling…on a golden jet fully stocked with vodka, nachos, and bunnies. Everyone was all, “Ohmygod, you are going to looooove it; Asheville is so ahhh-mazing.” I mean, it was […]

Editor’s Note: First of all, I LOVE this post from guest blogger Hayden because who doesn’t love beauty bargains AND an excuse to visit CVS (so I have a weird drugstore obsession – SO WHAT). Second of all, I saw one product on this list in particular (*cough* Wet n Wild) and was like, “Hayden […]

Let’s talk about sweaty pits. No one wants ’em, but we all have to deal with ’em. Hayden from Pretty In My Pocket fills us in on the BEST products on the market, whether you need clinical treatment for your underarms, prefer all-natural sweat protection, or just want your pits to smell rich. But first, […]

You know how Jennifer Lawrence is super beautiful, ridiculously talented, hilarious, beloved by the entire world, AND young, and you’re like, how is that even possible in one person? Well this is the Jennifer Lawrence of beauty products. Suki’s Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser ($11-$33) is a triple-threat with cleaning, scrubbing, AND effervescing abilities (have you ever seen […]

Sorry, June 20; summer starts THIS WEEKEND, which means fun in the sun is a given. But with those warm rays comes the potential for sunburn (ouch) and peeling (gross), skin damage (read: making you look OLDER by the day), and the dreaded C-word (and I’m not talking about C U next Tuesday). We ain’t […]

Remember the tears in my eyes during my first bikini wax? (If not, click HERE.) It absolutely has gotten better over time, but let’s be real–you’re ripping hair out of your skin in a sensitive area, so (some sort of) pain is a given, ESPECIALLY if you’re going Brazilian. I consulted two of Atlanta’s top […]

Hallelujah, it’s SHOW-SOME-LEG season! Whether you prefer to put your stems on display with dresses, skirts, shorts, skorts, jorts, or all of the above, it’s necessary they look as smooth, slim, and long as possible, a la Cher Horowitz circa 1995. Here’s how to glam your gams (and hair removal goes without saying, sisters). 1. […]

And so it begins! The Witty + Pretty 1-year anniversary weeklong giveaway extravaganza! But more importantly: It’s Earth Day. The ONE day you have of the entire year to SAVE THE PLANET. Did you recycle your Starbucks cup this morning? Extra points if you walked in with your own mug and asked them to fill […]

I am SO glad guest blogger Hayden of Pretty In My Pocket (download it now if you haven’t already, gurls!) covered this topic. If you’re anything like me in recent years, you’re worried about skin cancer and aging, but still need to be bronze when bikini season hits (no one wants to see me pale […]

Guess what? Your skincare products could be making you FAT! Kidding. But now that I have your attention. We know the skincare and cosmetics industry is seriously slack with regulations, which means companies can put toxic, potentially cancer-causing chemicals in your moisturizer and you rub that nastiness deeeeep into your pores every single day. I know…terrifying. […]

Clearly two of my great loves in life are alcohol and beauty, yet I haven’t created my own line for either of those things. (WHAT THE F*CK AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE?!) Well, Drew Barrymore has both and they’re totally legit (unlike this mess). Her Italian Pinot Grigio is quality, crisp, and delicious AND […]

The bad news: We’re aging right this second. The good news: Help is out there…and it’s at Sephora. A number of factors contribute to youthful, bright skin and clear complexions: Cleansing, exfoliating, the right products for your skin type, water intake, exercise, sun exposure (I’m screwed there), good vibrations, etc. etc. etc. But I’m a […]

I love objects that vibrate. Minds out of the gutters, pervs; I’m talking about the Clarisonic Opal, the revolutionary, palm-sized beauty contraption that infuses anti-aging serum into your delicate (read: wrinkle-prone) eye area way better than your bare hands “by gently tapping the skin at 125 sonic movements per second.” This “sonic infusion” technology “hydrates, […]
