Athleisure shorts with built-in lifehacks? Um, yes.

Since I’m a daily fitness gal who works from home (*thbbbbt*), I’ve totally embraced the athleisure/fitness-wear-all-day-erry-day trend. It’s pretty much my dream come true. However, I have noticed that some gym shorts are… how can I put this nicely? Stupid.

It’s not their fault, they just weren’t designed with use in mind. What we really need are shorts with pockets for our earbuds on a jog. A place to store our ID and debit card when we’re taking a walk to Trader Joes. No weird giant bulge in the front, but moisture-wicking like a mofo. And fashionable to boot. Where can we find such a wonder? Continue reading “Athleisure shorts with built-in lifehacks? Um, yes.” »

Really though – you NEED this lip stain.

It’s hard out here for a makeup junkie. Like most of us, I’ve been burned — by more than just my curling iron. By bad products that claim to stain my lips beautifully and evenly all day – HA! In a world full of these smudgy charlatans, who has faith anymore?

It turns out, though, that there’s hope, and it only takes one Prince Charming to make the memory of all the ruby-red frogs you’ve kissed (and subsequently rubbed off your makeup on) just melt away. Yes, ladies, I’ve found a lip stain that actually works, lasts, and looks good.

Want proof? Here it is on my face. That’s a stain, people! All by itself! Continue reading “Really though – you NEED this lip stain.” »

What can we do to stay cool without harming the planet or paying a fortune?

We Need Our Sleep!

As you already know, we all need a good night’s sleep to lead happy, healthy and active lifestyles. The amount of sleep we need, however, varies by age. According to the National Sleep Foundation, here are the recommended hours of sleep we should be getting depending on our age range: Continue reading “How a Ceiling Fan Keeps You Healthy” »

Laneige Target Skincare Line Review

Dude – K-beauty is taking. OVER. (oh yeah um #giveaway)

laneige disclosure#LovingLANEIGE #IC #partner

Did you guys see my post about how I’m obsessed with K-pop idols? Since then, my obsession has grown to everything Korean: K-drama, gochujang, and of course, K-Beauty!

Seriously, Korea has got this skincare thing DOWN. Girls — and boys — take skincare like, way seriously over there, and there are many more steps in the process than the typical Western cleanse/tone/moisturize. Just look at all that’s in the LANEIGE “Power of 7” K-beauty regimen: Continue reading “Dude – K-beauty is taking. OVER. (oh yeah um #giveaway)” »

Over the years, we all change. (And wrinkle!)

As families grow up, it is an excellent idea to have a portrait done once a year to show the changes over the progression of time. Whether you wish to have a portrait done as a Mother’s Day present, a holiday  or for a gift for someone’s birthday, a professional portrait of your recipient’s loved ones can be a gift that they will cherish for years to come.
