My Skin Update

Note: This is a paid-for advertorial with Curél. To see the beginning of my skin journey, click here. It’s been over a month since I began my skin’s journey toward smoother, more hydrated skin with Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer. I want to provide my thoughts on the experience. First—I’ve found that moisturizing my skin damp, right after showering before drying off, is a much quicker and more efficient process. It also doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy afterwards,…

The Most Finely Milled Bronzer?

I’m so impressed with this bronzer purchase. Lord knows I didn’t need another bronzer–after buying the Tom Ford bronzer I actually probably should put it in my will to bequeath to offspring. I’ve heard a lot of people name the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer as their top bronzer of 2016 so I figured I’d see what all the hype was about. It turns out this bronzer, which comes in two shades (I chose the lightest), is super super finely milled. It’s super powdery…

Clinique’s Winning Hybrid Foundation Brush

I’ve heard many a YouTuber and blogger talking about this brush, and to be honest, at first I thought it was all paid product placement.

YSL Fusion Ink Cushion Foundation Review

The Yves Saint Laurent foundation line has been as prestigious as it is pricey.  But when I found out they had gone and released a cushion foundation overseas and it wasn’t available in the United States (yet) – well, let me tell you: I just had to have it.  “The packaging is the best of any cushion foundation I’ve tried” The YSL “Le Cushion Encre de Peau” or Fusion Ink Cushion Foundation, SPF 23 PA ++ takes the well-received Fusion…

July Favorites 2016

I thought I would share my July Favorites for 2016 with you! I had quite the stressful month – graduating, moving across the country to North Carolina, driving three days with the flu, and studying for two and a half weeks for my anesthesiology boards, which I took on July 29. I don’t know if I passed yet or not. I also started my first real job in medicine – as chief anesthesiologist at a regional hospital. It’s been stressful…
