Camping like a lady

Camping. Not the ideal activity for some people, myself included. As much as I enjoy nature, I’m terrified of bugs (or creepy crawlies), afraid of the dark, and I don’t like the feeling of being muddy and dirty in general. Otherwise, my camping experience as a child and as an adult were fun, overall. Some …

I had just finished my Blanx whitening toothpaste a few weeks before and was thinking of trying another whitening toothpaste (although I do like Blanx). Since the brand had such …

My Beauty Essentials (Feb 2016)

Two weeks ago, I was inspired by Glossier to share what my essential beauty products are to enhance – rather than hide – my natural features. One thing I like about Glossier is the belief that: “…beauty should be fun, easy, imperfect, and personal.” We often become focused on transforming our faces into a portrait of perfection, as …

Review: The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Line

Last year, I tried Body Shop’s Tea Tree line to treat my blemished skin. I started with one product and eventually tested nearly all the products in the Tea Tree line.
