Travel hair and skin care

I've been home from my most recent round of travels for a few days and I'm already packing to leave town again. This time I'm going home for the holidays; Christmas is something I look forward to all year, but Dan has to come back to Albany before the actual holiday and that sucks. Anyway,...

Speaking of horror…

What in the holy hell is happening with Deciem's founder? Let me back up: Deciem is the parent company of The Ordinary, the company that's proven that decent skincare doesn't need to cost an arm, a leg and our first born.

Awake Beauty

Tarte has had a rough few months. Between the Shape Tape shade debacle, the boring releases and the April Fool's joke gone wrong, they're struggling when it comes to PR.

Anyway, it'll be summer eventually, and in the summer I wear less makeup. I don't like to wear full coverage foundation normally unless I'm going to an... Continue Reading →

An ode to my Clarisonic

I've figured out why my skin looked so janky while I was in Michigan: I didn't bring my Clarisonic. Normally I do bring it when I travel, but the cabin where Dan is living is TINY, and I tried to keep the amount of junk I brought to a minimum. I know he'll laugh if... Continue Reading →
