I am the queen of one-pan meals because I hate cooking and I hate cleaning. Recently, my laziness has blended with “hangry”-ness and I’ve resorted to the epitome of crappy college food…Top Ramen.

Similarly, you can admire a beautiful person without despising yourself for not looking just like them. Stop comparing yourself to others.

Boy Brow: I am very familiar with how it feels to have a “good hair day” because it happens so infrequently for me that it’s borderline monumental at this point (#bunhead).

Glossier’s Boy Brow is the cult-favorite (according to the Facebook ads that creepily always […]Read more "Boy Brow + Stretch Concealer | Glossier Review"
“My body is finely tuned like a microchip and the flu is like a grain of sand; it could LITERALLY shut down the entire system.” As some of you may have picked up on, I’m a bit of a health nut. In an effort to make my recipes healthier and more nutrient dense, I often over-correct […]Read more "I Have LI-TERALLY Become Chris Traeger"
I am a big fan of quick and easy beauty routines [mostly due to my short attention span and fidgety nature]. I also have really sensitive teeth so name brand teeth whitening kits that I’ve tried over the years usually get abandoned before any results can be appreciated. Here is my quick and easy whitening routine that […]Read more "Cheap & Easy Teeth Whitening Routine"
