As I’ve mentioned in prior posts, I am somewhat of a beauty addict (just check out my "shelfie" to the right). I admit to spending a large sum of my time scroll

We all have that someone in our circle who just runs themself ragged. Whether it's at the office, at home, or at school, this person just needs a day off. From meditation guides to bath bombs, here's a collection of some of the best buys for that person who needs a day of self-care to unwind, refresh and recharge.

It's that time of year folks! Holiday season is up and running and that means (among amazing time with loved ones), lots of shopping to show your appreciation for said loved ones.

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be publishing gift guides to help you navigate those stressful shopping malls (or if you're reading this) those seemingly endless pages online. As a beauty fanatic myself, I thought I'd start with a guide for that...

In the summertime, you will be hard pressed to find me not lounging by a body of water, or at least daydreaming about lounging by a body of water (I do have a day job, after all). As an Aquarius, I love everything about the summer, sand, and sea. Newly representing Bikini.com. I thought it would be fun to share my absolute must-haves for a day in the sun.
