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

Fall always means a few different things for me: Switching from iced lattes to hot, promising myself I’ll get ahead on holiday shopping (but waiting until last minute like always), and having to pay a little extra attention to my mood. I tend to get the fall blues. There’s a fancy and scientific name for it, but basically each year as the summer fades to fall I have to work a bit harder to stay upbeat. It used to be a problem before I recognized the pattern, but now it’s something I’m able to combat by coming at it with… View Post

Let me brag for just a second: My skin is the best it’s been in months. I don’t have a single active breakout on my face (though I’ve got about a dozen marks from healing spots).

I’ve played around a lot with anti-acne products the past few months, and am thrilled by the results. My anti-acne skincare routine was a work in progress but I’ve finally narrowed down some of the best acne-clearing, radiance boosting products. My personal… View Post

I’ve seen a concerning trend with friends in real life and in the blogging world. It seems that everyone is on a diet but isn’t dieting ‘right.’ I understand that figuring out how to get fit is hard because most of us are stressed, we are busy, and ordering a pizza is so much easier that cooking. But make the commitment to yourself and to your health to not take shortcuts when it comes to getting healthy! A lot of people are sticking to the resolutions they made to get fit in the New Year which is awesome, but so many people are going… View Post

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine. First off, let’s address the elephant in the room: At 22 do I really need to be focusing on anti-aging in my skincare routine? Short answer: Yes. I could give you all sorts of platitudes about how it’s never too early to prevent wrinkles or that it’s easier to prevent aging than it is to reverse it. But instead let me say this: While anti-aging products do a fab job preventing avoidable signs of aging, they typically also come with incredible… View Post
