My Umstead Spa Experience

About a week ago I had the most amazing spa experience of my life.  I haven’t been one much for facials or spa treatments in the past, mostly because I couldn’t bear to spend that much money on myself.  But when I was treated to a very generous gift card to the Umstead Spa from my CRNA’s at my place of work for Christmas, I browsed the treatment menu for months trying to decide which experience I would indulge in.…

My New Favorite Body Cream

Clinique snuck up on me with this one. As I was browsing the aisles of my local Ulta store, as you do, I was actually looking for the buff brush that so many bloggers have been raving about, when this little beauty caught my eye. The display held a trio of body soufflés called Clinique Happy Gelato Cream for Body, and this was the first scent I picked up. It also happened to be the standout favorite of the three. The scent is…

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil

I first became introduced to Sunday Riley when a friend of mine that I went to medical school with mentioned that her sister was working for "a beauty/skincare company called Sunday Riley".  As a beauty blogger, I was intrigued. What was this company I had yet to hear anything about?

May Favorites 2015

The month of May went by ever so quickly - and it's one of my favorites. My birthday was May 1, and my anniversary was May 12. Two of my most favoritest (I'm making that a word) people also celebrate their birthdays in May, so it really just feels like a month of celebrations.

It’s rare that I get up and talk to you about a single product in a blog post, but this deserves to be mentioned. I’m in love with a lotion–and I’m pretty sure it loves me back (at least, my skin thinks so). I’ll bet you didn’t guess it was from Vaseline. Their new serum-based restorative lotion (called Vaseline Intensive Care™ Healing Serum) has my hands clapping in celebration, because finally there is a lotion that 1) sinks in quickly…

June Favorites 2014

Hey everyone! Today I’m sharing with you my June Favorites. I know it’s a little late but studying for my Anesthesiology board exam on July 29th has me completely swamped! Get ready for something exciting in August though! 😉 I’ve been loving espadrilles from Shopbop (they have a great selection) and this has been one of my favorite places to shop for beauty products lately thanks to the free shipping and easy returns.

Naturally Brightening Skincare Review

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you a new skincare range that comes from natural cosmetics brand Burt’s Bees. Not only have I been using Burt’s Bees lip balm since high school (when Accutane made my lips sore and chapped and needed constant TLC), but I’ve absolutely loved seeing how the company has blossomed into a full-range natural skincare line (with even a few cosmetics thrown in there too). So when they invited me to try their newest…
