Beauty Travel Essentials

I have had a super busy summer of traveling and I’ve been trying to keep my skincare on the top of my priority list! There is nothing worse than walking off a flight with tight, dry skin that looks lifeless and tired. Today I’m going to be talking about my in-flight skincare essentials so that I walk off every plane feeling fresh and glowy. First things first, I disinfect my hands and my area of the plane before any skincare starts happening. Yep, I am totally that germaphobe who wipes down her area as soon as I sit. Maybe not […]

Staycation at Dove Inn

A couple weeks back Hayden and I had the pleasure of escaping to the Dove Inn in Golden, Colorado for a night.

First Glossier Experience

As most of you know last week I was in California for a little vacation! My dad’s entire side of the family and my brother and his girlfriend live all over LA so I try to get out there at least once a year to see everyone. This time I went during the week, so while family was working during the day I had a little bit of time to myself to explore LA. One of the things on my list was to shop around on Melrose because the Glossier store was there. Where Do I Even Begin?   When […]

Friday: I flew in Thursday evening and on Friday my mom had to work, so I had the day to myself. I was looking to zen out, so the first thing […]

To some this may seem like no big deal, and to many this may seem like the biggest deal ever.

To say this was the experience of a lifetime is an understatement. Not only did […]
