My 2017 Favorites

Another year is gone, which means I have another year of favorites to talk about! I discovered so many amazing products and so much incredible content this year, so I want to give a shoutout to the standouts of 2017. Some of these came out before 2017, but I either didn’t discover them or didn’t fully fall in love with them until this year. You know I’m a creature of habit, and these were the things I could NOT get enough of this past year! Primal Kitchen Mayo: This had to be first on my list, of course. It was…

The Ultimate Healthy Holiday Gift Guide, 2017

  I’ve created a holiday gift guide specifically for HER, and a holiday gift guide specifically for HIM, so it’s finally time to fill in the blanks! This is probably my favorite gift guide because it has EVERYTHING, with a heavy slant on the “healthy living” side of things. I’ve said it again and again – Christmas is the perfect time to transition friends and family to a healthier lifestyle.

Holiday Gift Guide for Him, 2017

Part 2 of my 2017 holiday gift guide series is finally here, and this one is definitely the most difficult / most requested. Why is it so hard to shop for men?! Probably because their wish list is usually pretty simple (if it even exists), and most of them already have what they want or need. I pooled my resources for this guide. I made a list, and then I consulted with my best friend (who took note of her boyfriend’s opinions), and then I talked to my friend Rahul, who you might remember from his episode of Actually Adultish…

Holiday Gift Guide for Her, 2017

The fact that it’s already time for a holiday gift guide is unreal to me. December came so quickly, and now it’s time to get my Christmas shopping done so I can kick back and worry about nothing other than watching tons of Christmas movies and getting my holiday baking on! That being said, giving gifts is definitely one of my favorite parts of the holiday season. I take a lot of pride in the gifts I give. I want them to be as personalized as possible, and I want it to be clear that I’ve put a lot of…

Microneedling and the Dermaroller for Acne Scars and Pigmentation

  When it comes to evening out my skin tone and getting rid of my acne scars, I feel like I’ve tried everything under the sun. I’ve easily wasted thousands of dollars on products and treatments, generally left feeling hopeless and frustrated. I’ve tried masks, serums, chemical peels, lasers, and everything in between. I struggled with cystic acne for years, and although I got rid of it, it did leave me with pigmentation and acne scars that really bothered me. So, typical me – I spent years of my life researching “how to get rid of acne scars” and tried almost every single…
