How I prep my skin for the cold using Aveeno products

Just in time for time for the colder weather, a package from Aveeno showed up on my doorstep!

Two years ago when I was having trouble with my skin, I went to the dermatologist and she recommended some Aveeno products to me. Ever since that day, I have been hooked on this quality, affordable and clean drugstore brand. I got my mom hooked on it, my roommate and even my boyfriend! All of their products are so gentle that you simply cannot go wrong. Their facial cleanser and clear complexion moisturizer cleared up the problems I was having with my skin at the time so I am forever loyal to them!

Before receiving these three products, I had been using their clear complexion moisturizer anyways and now, I just have more Aveeno products to add to my collection! Let’s get into them:

Fall Jackets + Hello!

Hi everyone!! It’s been a couple weeks since I last wrote a blog post and I think that’s because I am having a bit of an idea block lately. I have some ideas for blogs that I want to execute but now is not the time, so that leaves me like (……).

Anyways, the last time I blogged it was hot, today it’s cold. Somehow in a couple of weeks it went from Summer to Fall and honestly, I am kind of okay with it! I thought I’d check in today to say what’s up and that I am already stocking up on my fall jackets.

Serious blog-iversary. What’s that?

Today is August 24 and it’s my one year serious blog-iversary! I’ve owned and operated my blog for four (almost 5) years now BUT I did not keep up with it or write as much OR be half as serious as I have been with it this past year.

I am so grateful that something clicked in my head a year ago that this blog could actually be the most amazing hobby, creative release and past time in my life…it’s been the most fabulous and fun journey.

How I Maintain my Long Natural Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I wanted to talk about my nails because I get a lot of questions about them! I shamelessly will stop into the nail salon from time to time to get an occasional regular manicure for the sole reason that the nail technician usually compliments me on my nails…. (: Modest, I know!

All jokes aside, I really do get questions on how I keep them so long. They’re 100% mine and usually don’t have gel polish on them!

Hi everyone and Happy Monday!

Today I am sharing some of the spots that I’ve had luck taking photos at in the past. For bloggers, you have to have this shield over you when you’re taking pics because 9/10 times there will be either one or more people staring at you while you strike a pose. I have honestly gotten over it and it never really bothered me that much in the first place. It’s like yeah, I have a good outfit on, this is a cool background and I’m trying to grow my blog…is that cool with you? If not, keep walking. If you’re interested, here take my business card!

That leads me to WHERE these places are! I am based in CT, so most of these places are in Connecticut or surrounding areas. I hope this helps!

Burnt orange is the new black

IMG_0197.JPGHi everyone and happy Sunday! I hope everyone is resting up for the week ahead, that’s what Sundays are for, right!?

I’m here chatting today about my new go-to color: burnt orange! I really used to not know how I felt about it until I started wearing it more often and people keep saying, “that’s your color” so, I’ll take their word for it and go with it!
