Practical Ways to Practice Self-Care

If you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been off to the greatest start with publishing here on Mostly Morgan in 2018. Instead, I’ve been focused a lot on self-care. If you read teen magazines or spend any time on Pinterest your idea of self-care might be different than mine. You’re likely imagining me doing yoga, taking bubble baths, lighting candles, and meditating. While all of the above are legitimate ways to practice self-care, they can also be impractical when you’re busy and stressed. Self-care can mean a lot of things, and what works for one person doesn’t have to work for you. Personally?…

My Simple Winter Skincare Routine ft. Olay

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…

How I Use Aromatherapy for Self-Care

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.

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…

The Best Inexpensive Face Cream

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…

Brand Spotlight: Glossier

I’m introducing a new series on my blog highlighting my favorite products from my favorite brands. When I was younger (and a lot more broke) if I needed any type of beauty product I would buy the cheapest version that the drugstore had to offer with varying results. Sometimes my finds would get the job done as hoped, other times I’d be disappointed and my $3.99 mascara would sit untouched in a drawer until it was long past expired. As I’ve gotten older I’ve found that it’s better to invest in things that I’ll love and actually use and have less than it…
