Sunscreen is super important to me; it’s rare that I leave my house without wearing any. In fact, aside from a vacation to the beach, I try to avoid the sun at all costs. That may sound extreme, but I’ve spent my fair share of time in the sun growing up, and I want to protect my skin the best I can now.
It’s been about two years since I bought a new eyeshadow palette — I’m actually really happy about it. It’s so easy to see a shiny, new palette and want to buy it, but I only have one set of eyes and I rarely ever hit pan on any of my eyeshadows.

DIY gifts are so much fun to make and they are extra special to the recipient because they were made with love. A few months ago, I showed you how to make wax string bracelets inspired by Pura Vida — this time I wanted to share a new style for Valentine’s Day. The fishtail braid style is so easy and it looks super pretty — perfect for your valentine.
Sleep is super important for our bodies to repair themselves and to keep us healthy mentally and physically. We spend over one-third of our lives sleeping so it makes sense to make your bedroom a stress-free place where you can relax and feel comfortable.

It’s time for my 2018 favorites! Most of these are things I’ve shared throughout the year, but I just love seeing these types of posts and sharing the things I’ve been loving. Here are my beauty and lifestyle favorites from 2018:
We have so many things in our homes and in our lives that are no longer bringing us joy or serving us. We hang on to these things because we are use to it, or we think that these things have some sort of value, but if you don’t love it there’s no point in hanging on to it. This is the perfect time to evaluate the things in your life and figure out what you really need and what you really love. Here are 17 things to get rid of this year and my tips for making intentional purchases.
I’ve had my Fitbit Versa Special Edition version since the end of July. It’s been just over 4 months and I wanted to update my initial review. When the Apple Watch Series 4 was released this September, I researched and debated getting it but ultimately decided to stick with the Fitbit. Here’s my updated Fitbit Versa review and the reasons why I didn’t switch to Apple Watch Series 4:

If you have curly hair, you know it can sometimes be a struggle to get your curls to do what you want. I have been on a slow journey to find a routine that would work for my hair to help prevent damage/breakage/frizz and to accentuate my natural curl pattern. This is my experience so far with the Curly Girl Method:
