I am the biggest minimalist that probably ever existed. The idea of having multiple steps to something like makeup sounds very unappealing and I’m most definitely not interested. Kristen from Total Beauty completely agrees with me – “When it comes to face makeup, most of us will go to amazing lengths in order to find that perfect product. That one foundation, powder or concealer that completely hides spots, minimizes lines and creates an overall flawless finish. (Does one such product even exist?) We will spend a ton of cash — maybe not on one product, but on the hundreds we’ve tested in a lifetime — read reviews until we’re dizzy and, of course, allow makeup artist after makeup artist to convince us that their product is the best.” Well I’m no makeup artists or makeup guru with millions of subscribers on YouTube, but when it comes to setting powders I can tell you wholeheartedly that I seriously LOVE Sacha Cosmetics Buttercup Powder.
We have made it to the official year – Kobe year! Although my birthday was actually on a Thursday, it was only right to extend it into the weekend.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder, losing my sister and best friend, heart failure, CMV, medications, trichotillomania, and depression. Despite all the negatives, I love myself now more than you’ll ever know.
I never thought I’d be doing this… Yet alone be telling you about the hardest yet most rewarding decision I’ve had to make. As I mentioned in my newsletter, I’ve decided to take a different route in terms of my career choice. For those of you that have been with me from the beginning you that becoming a successful Fashion Publicist has always been my dream. I mean heck I went to Iowa State University and studied Marketing and Public Relations with a minor in Fashion Design. But before I come clean with what I’ve been looking into, lets get into the facts. Who and why do people change careers?
The Importance of Self-Care: Backpack Edition
I’ve been sick. Like really sick. And I don’t mean writers block kind of sick. I mean I’ve had lack of self-care, which led me to complete isolation from any social media platform for weeks. I know a lot of you have been curious as to when I was going to upload another blog post; and to be honest I was questioning the same thing.
