  • Living My Best Skin

    Sponsored Post / Advertorial This weekend I had the absolute pleasure of being able to test drive the Triple Lipid Restorative Facial by SkinCeuticals. I went to Adara Medical Spa where I was greeted by a very amicable receptionist and the entire spa was white, clean and inviting. After the hour-long-plus facial, my skin felt plumped, hydrated, restored, protected, and youthful. I know the importance of lipid layers for the skin’s protection, so it makes sense to my medical mind…

    Playing with Jewels

    As the name of my website suggests, I’m immediately drawn to anything pretty that sparkles and shines. And even as a child, I would stand on my tiptoes to peek into the brightly-lit display cases at my local jewelers, Helzberg Diamonds, and admire the glittering jewelry. It all comes full circle for me now, as I admire and play with the captivatingly unique designs from Effy Jewelry at Helzberg Diamonds. From the warm rose gold tones mixed with tanzanite, to…

    Salon-Inspired Hair Color At Home

    My sister and I decided to take the plunge with box dye, and after reading a ton of your recommendations on my last post about the perils of at-home box dye, I took all of your comments to heart and asked my sister if I could dye her roots next time. I asked because she has slightly darker hair than mine, which means her roots are more visible (sorry sis!) and therefore we would be better able to tell if…

    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…

    The French Milkmaid Braid Tutorial

    As you may well know, I have been highlighting my hair for the better part of a decade. I have naturally ash blonde hair which just looks dull (or worse, dirty) if it isn’t brightened up. To keep my hair at its strongest, I’m always on the lookout for advanced technology hair care products that will restore my hair. I typically take a pretty proactive approach – I don’t wait until my hair is dry and brittle, I constantly maintain…

    Great Skin is Your Best Accessory

    There’s no doubt in my mind that when it comes to looking great for summer, the S word is in the forefront of my mind. Skin: protecting it, treating it, making it glowy, making it dewy, making it convincingly faux tan, making it clear. In my mind, none of it matters (not the tan, not the dewy glow) if it isn’t clear and radiant. As a longtime sufferer of acne, I thought I would share with you my experiences with acne,…
