My Current Beauty Faves

Hello my lovelies! This week I shared my bathroom tour on the blog, so I thought I’d continue in the vein of self care and hygiene by sharing my current beauty faves. Everything from skin care and makeup, to my favorite products for hair and my daily/weekly routines.

Disclaimer: I am by no means a beauty expert, skin care expert, hair expert, anything expert, lol. I don’t know the exact best things, or methods. I just know what works for me, doesn’t cause me irritation or ill-effect and wanted to share my favorite products as of this moment. Shall we?

One Small Change for Less Stress this Holiday

UNSUBSCRIBE FROM ALL THOSE EMAILS!

BBG Pre Training Recap

Pretty much every attempt at BBG goes something like this: start pre-training and kill it day one; wake up day two and can’t sit down or stand up from the toilet (or anywhere really); continue on and make it through week two and then either hurt myself and/or catch a cold;  then bail and beat myself up for not making it through yet again. Then repeat.

Good morning, happy Saturday and happy weekend!
