This post is in partnership with Olay. All opinions are my own.   Two things I’m guilty of: Checking emails throughout my morning routine (especially in bed…). Who else?! Skipping steps in my morning routine (whenever possible). Because: time! Olay recently reached out to me to partner with them for the launch of their latest moisturizer, […]

Shea Butter

 Knowing that I was about to spend almost two winter weeks in the colder climates of Japan (comparatively speaking – but it did snow one night in Kyoto!) I brought along my most hydrating skincare from L’Occitane. I never board an airplane without my Shea Butter Hand Creme (and yes – I make sure Lucia […]


 Did you know that 90% of of the signs of aging comes from the sun? This healthy habit is a no-brainer. I’ll admit that there were a handful of years in my mid-20s when I decided (for no good reason at all) not to replenish my daily sunscreen once the bottle ran out. Days without […]

Plus I’m obsessed with the scent. Almond Shower Oil by L’Occitane (here): It starts out oily and lathers up nicely in the shower! […]


 Good morning and happy Wednesday! I’ve been using the amazing Korean skincare line AmorePacific for almost three years now (I buy their Treatment Facial Cleanser in bulk!); I love their Moisture Bound collection and my mom swears by their Future Response collection. I am thrilled to partner with AmorePacific today and I’ve spent the last month trying […]

Beauty Update with Nordstrom Beauty Spot

With a new season and a new lifestyle (that of a soon-to-be working mommy!) ahead of me, I was thrilled to team up with Nordstrom Beauty Spot to update my beauty regimen.  Most importantly, my roller-coaster hormones have been wreaking havoc on my skin – I definitely needed a serious skincare makeover. Here’s what I’ve […]
