I DID HOT VINYASA YOGA AND DIED

It’s safe to say that the yoga craze is sweeping the nation. From the pop up of designer workout gear (yeah Lululemon I’m calling you out), to our generations’ love for all things hippie, yoga is everywhere. I had always assumed that all yoga was this nice, relaxing thing where you stretch and say “om” and connect with your soul, but boy was I wrong. (more…)

A BOOTS EXPERIENCE IN THE US?

The London to NYC culture shock is real, ya’ll. Although I’ve been back for a few months, every now and then something reignites the memories and makes me miss London all over again.

We’ll get more into those details soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to chat about something that has changed my life: the Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo.   (more…)

CURRENT SKINCARE ROUTINE

Skincare is something that’s plagued my existence for at least the past ten years. In high school, I pretty much failed to see it’s importance, washing my face with literally only water for about three years. After that, I got all dramatic and decided that Proactiv was the solution (I was very impressionable and enjoyed infomercials). The stuff fixed my skin right up, but it was expensive and super harsh; if I stopped using it for a day or two my skin would go full on ballistic.  (more…)
