Established bloggers make it look easy. They are bouncing emails back and forth with 10 different companies who are dying to work with them all while sipping an #InstaWorthy matcha latte and admiring their perfect gel manicure. A lot of bloggers are lost, though, when it comes to working with brands. They see other people doing paid collabs with brands that they could only dream of, but figuring out how to land those collaborations, how much to charge, and how to build a positive relationship with brands is where things get tricky. Luckily for you, I’ve been doing brand collaborations… View Post

Hair has always been a “the grass is always greener” type thing for me. I was born with fine, stick straight hair that doesn’t hold any style for more than a few hours. My best friend on the other hand, has wild, curly hair that’s full of volume but won’t ever lay the way she wants it to. And we always wanted to trade.

Anyone who follows me over on Instagram knows that I love Sequin Jewelry. I wear their Gemini Constellation Necklace nearly everyday and it can be seen in more of my Instagram posts than not.

Trying to balance my interest in fashion with my need to feel like I’m saving the world has been weighing heavy on me, and I recently wrote guidelines for myself on how to shop more sustainably. (I’ll share those further down in the post!) I also did a full wardrobe audit when I moved… View Post

This post is sponsored by Olay, but as always all opinions are my own. I’ve shared my skincare woes with you over and over again. In the winter, my skin tends to revolt. I’m talking redness, puffiness, and dryness. As soon as the weather begins to change, my skin takes a turn for the worst. It’s gotten so bad in the past that no amount of foundation or concealer could hide the tell-tale dry flakes or puffy under eyes. That’s why I was so excited, (and let’s be honest, a little bit skeptical), when Olay reached out and invited me… View Post
