On our Beauty Radar: Brazilian Blowout Acai Haircare

Brazilian Blowout Acai Anti-frizz

I’ve noticed that most of my girlfriends are more in tune with the particulars of their skin than their hair. Not to say that they have terrible hair, but it makes sense when you think about how skincare has one standard of beauty (flawless and smooth) but haircare caters to a handful of different desired looks (curly, straight, etc).

Between new hair and skin products, it seems to me that haircare is much more trend-based. Like everyone by now, I knew of Brazilian blowouts, which my close friend has gotten done and loved, but I wasn’t aware of the company’s own hair products.




Updating Makeup Basics with NARS

I recently updated my basic t-shirt wardrobe with these editorial favorites by Everlane and am in love with their soft, relaxed feel. Sometimes you need a change of staples to really refresh your look.

In the makeup department, I switched it up and am currently using and adoring these new NARS products. They’re major game changers in terms of creating natural looks that last all day.



September Favorites: Green Beauty Picks

Essence of Beauty Botanical Body Wash Lavender

I used to be stricter about healthy eating, but nowadays I find moderation in a 70/30 “clean”/indulgent diet. Life’s too short to miss out on sweets and treats or crusty pizza each week!

When it comes to beauty though, I’m a lot more relaxed. I won’t pick a mediocre organic product over an amazing conventional one. I’m always actively looking for more natural products though. Take a look at what I’ve stumbled upon this month.

I’ve been doing early morning showers as I hit the gym before class this semester. The new Essence of Beauty Botanical Body Wash in Lavender ($9.99 US) is a soothing, relaxing addition to my shower caddy that lathers gorgeously.



My Tips for Healthy and Happy Skin

Murad Skin Smoothing Polish

For the most part I’m happy with my skin, but like everyone else, I’m constantly working towards smoother, more radiant skin. I’m a firm believer in a combination of topical treatments and eating right for giving beautiful skin that special glow.

Shifts in the season always seem to make my skin a tad sensitive, so it’s times like now when I try to be extra disciplined. Check out some of my tips below the jump! (more…)


Chocolate and Vintage Gold

Going back to the little details, I’m feeling inspired by warm chocolate tones that feel dreamy against changing leaves and the brisk air. Monochromatic brushed “vintage gold” jewelry looks luxe without being flashy and pairs perfectly with velvety deep colors. Navy and chocolate are a winning combination as are burgundy (or any other dark reds) and browns.

What are your favorite colors for Fall fashions?
