Top Skincare Products for a Healthy Complexion and Glow

May 4, 2020

For a really long time, I envied all the women with a flawless complexion and gorgeous natural glow to their skin. It is something I have wanted my whole teenage to adult life, but I was long before I made it a priority. About 5 years ago, I moved to Santa Monica, Los Angeles and had started suffering from massive breakouts. While I had some breakouts in the past, they were minor in comparison. It was then that I realized that I was really just getting by with my old skincare products. 

Don’t get me wrong, I used products from large, well-known brands, but they weren’t quite right for me, my age or what my skin needed. I knew I had to make a change, and fast forward years later, I’ve come across some great skincare products that have significantly changed and improved changed my skin.

The Bra Trend and How to Wear It This Spring

February 6, 2020

One of my favorite Spring / Summer 2020 Trends is the bralette. When I purchased my Dior Bralette, I knew I’d be wearing it over and over again. Not only because there was a hefty price tag but because I had a long-running affair with sheer tops and the best thing to wear with one is a great little bra. Having transitioned back to some colder climates, I’m happy to say that bralettes under billowing shirts or blazers with padded shoulders are one of my favourite things to wear, and I’m excited to expand my bra and bralette collection because I know that over time, regardless of trends, they’re worth wearing over and over again.
