I'm a guy who LOVES everything related to beauty!!
Yes, I wear makeup. *Gasp!*
NO, I don't go all out with super big false lashes, crazy eyeshadows, Crayola lips, etc. I do however LOVES me my complexion products, and have probably tried every one of them out there. (Think primers, concealers, foundation, blush, bronzer, highlighters, contouring and so on.) (...and on, and on, and on....)
I worked behind the chair as a hairstylist for seven years, before I went to work for Sephora. I was selected to be part of their education team and traveled to other stores to provide in-depth training on many different brands. So this hairstylist/esthetician/nail tech did the next logical thing, and pursued his fragrance certification! If you think you could just take the test and guess your way through it you will waste a ton of money and 6 months waiting to "redo" your test. It's only done twice a year. If you fail you start all over again.
After Sephora I've remained active in the beauty industry in one way or another. I'm actually starting a blog that'll hopefully be your one stop shop for the latest beauty news, reviews, and the rest of those juicy beauty do's and don'ts your besties have been keeping to themselves... ( Those Beeee-otches...! ) 😒
PS: I kiss boys...
I love Southwest Airlines! I would pick this airline over anyone else for the simple fact that their prices can’t be beat! I’ve found that I’m able to get the best deal if I book DIRECTLY through their website as opposed to travel sites like Expedia or Priceline. Also, they’ve never lost my luggage which is a BIG PLUS!
These are amazing! They mirror the number one dermatologist prescribed protocol for eliminating hyper pigmentation and dark spots. This is done in two steps; one increase cellular turnover and 2) get to the root of the problem (literally) and prevent the formation of new spots! It’s super gentle because of the high performance retinoid in it which makes it more tolerable than other methods. I can’t say enough about these pads, do yourself a favor and get them!!

I really like these for when I’ve had a long day and I’m under a lot of stress. They help to get rid of the tension headache that’s been building up throughout the day and the PM formula helps me fall asleep by quieting my busy mind that otherwise would have kept me awake!
Don’t ever say “A sponge is just a sponge. If you used one you’ve used them all...” until you try these sponges by Laura Mercier. The craftsmanship behind all of Laura Mercier’s tools and brushes is out of this world. These guys included! They magically just contour and fit into every little nook and cranny effortlessly as if it were magic. It’ll leave you with the same puzzled look you’d have when seeing a cat somehow maneuver itself into a tiny little fish bowl!! Try them!!
Nothing beats a cold blue moon on a hot summer day with a slice of an orange to top it. It’s the equivalent to “chocolate and sea salt” but it’s a beer and an orange slice.... and alcoholic. If you’re new to blue moon watch out, they’ll cree up on you faster than you realize. As always, please drink responsibly - not only for yourself but also for others too!
This is the best place to go if you want to find things for your house that you don't want to pay the full price for in order to have them. I have some really nice Lacoste hand towels in my guest bathroom, and there just as good as they would've been if I bought them at full price.
This fragrance is so beautiful! I don't own anything else like it. It was inspired by the house of Hermès in Paris, specifically it's rooftop, which is literally this magnificent garden in full bloom, in the middle of one of the busiest cities in the world. There is a strong presence of rose in this fragrance (and I'm NOT a rose person at all) But it is blended so beautifully with everything else that it just becomes this mesmerizing kind of accord.
This is another one of my favorite deodorants that leave me smelling fresh and pleasant whenever I'm working out or doing some other kind of physical activity that would cause me to sweat as opposed to smelling like I'm just trying to mask body odor by wearing cologne. It also layers very well with the fragrance.
I had mixed feelings about this cologne. I couldn't decide if it was casual enough to be a casual fragrance or elegant enough to be worn as a formal fragrance. Anytime I wear this I never feel like it's a "good fit" for whatever I'm doing. From the second I put it on all I ever smell is powder. Powder in the morning, powder in the afternoon, and powder all through the night. It's just an odd scent.
This is definitely one of my go to summer fragrances because it is so playful and zesty. One of the most prominent notes in it is ginger, which gives it a sort of fun snd spicy kick while maintaining an overall elegant and refined formulation.
