5 Best Beauty Gifts

Necessaire The Body Ritual

Beauty gifts are the best, IMHO. They pamper the recipient, take up little physical space, yet they can introduce the giftee to a whole new beautiful world. The best beauty gifts are the kind that are so lovely to have, but are not something one would usually buy for oneself. Hence, the perfect gift. Here are my picks for the 5 best beauty gifts: Advertisements…

4 Best Transitional Nail Colors

Tiffany Blue Nail Polish

Whether you’re heading back to the nail salon or DIY’ing these days, you might be in need of color inspiration for these transitional times. There is no need to run to the dark side just yet, and for some of us, traditional “fall colors” are just not flattering. When I think about nail colors for these in-between-times, I like to consider my current wardrobe and I look for colors that compliment what I’ve been wearing. For me, that means a…

3 Best Summer Fragrances

While I generally don’t subscribe to the #lovesummerhateeverythingelse mindframe, I do believe summer fragrances are superior.

Although I’ve tried many, there are three that I’ve been loving for years and one is under $20. These are the 3 best summer fragrances:…

The Refreshing Organic Mist Sunscreen I Am Using Daily

Coola Full Spectrum 360° Refreshing Water Mist Organic Face Sunscreen SPF 18

It’s peak hot girl summer over on the East Coast, and by that I mean I am melting. It’s a sweltering mix of dry heat and thick humidity and I will take any relief I can get. I recently tried a new water mist sunscreen, which vaguely reminded me at first glance of my mother’s Evian spray from back in the day. Apparently, it’s still a popular beauty item. However, my new perk-me-up has SPF and smells subtly like a…

The Best Hair Mask

The best hair mask

I casually mentioned to my friend the other day that my hair had seen better days. Normally when my hair is short it looks and feels healthier, but between the sun, the sand, and pool, my ends were feeling dehydrated. Since cutting my hair short, I still try to hold off on washing at least every two days, however, my lob requires a bit more styling than my long locks. Rather than air dry every other wash, I feel like…

The Best Self Tanner

Isle Of Paradise Self Tanning Drops Review

I have tried self tanners in the past and had given up hope that any brand would ever work for me. My skin is on the browner side of the spectrum thanks to my Mexicana mama, but I sometimes want a little more even color on my legs and face. After week 6 of quarantine, I caught a glimpse in the mirror and thought I had seen a ghost (maybe I’m being dramatic but I feel it). My complexion looked…
