My Favorite M-61 Products

I’m always so shocked when I’m talking skincare with someone (you know, as one does haha) and they aren’t familiar with Bluemercury’s M-61 skincare line. It’s honestly one of my favorites! I feel like the products and ingredients are such high quality, especially for the price. We’re not talking drugstore prices by any means, but we all know that some skincare lines can be ridiculously priced. I truly feel like you get so much bang for your buck with M-61! I’ve tested a lot of their products over the years, but these are my top five favorites… Well, seven, depending on the season.

What I Wore Last Week

She’s baaaaaaaack! I’m so excited to kick off my What I Wore Last Week series again this year now that I’m back in the US and have more than a single suitcase of clothes to wear. I know it was one of your favorites to read this past year and it’s always fun to capture the every day outfits that aren’t “blog worthy” … Here’s to hoping I get better at remembering to have someone snap a picture before it gets dark out (considering that’s now at 4pm). Happy Monday, friends!

Friday Finds || Vol. 3, Week 1

Happy, happy Friday! I can’t believe I’m typing this, but happy 2019! It’s been a whirlwind of a few weeks… I finished up my Remote Year program in Mexico City which was very bittersweet, came home on Christmas Eve and got to spend a few days with my family, drove up to Chicago for a few apartment appointments, and flew out to Steamboat Springs, Colorado for New Year’s Eve in the mountains with some of my besties. It was such an incredible trip and was the perfect note to end 2018 and start 2019 on. Have I mentioned how excited I am to start the year?! haha I love the feeling of a fresh start!

Dear 2019

Dear 2019, I’m so ready for you. I’ve been looking forward to you for quite some time and I’m very glad you’re finally here. As of recently, I feel like I’m starting to pull my head out of the dark cloud that’s been looming over my head throughout the last two years. And I’m more than ready for the next chapter. 2017 and 2018 felt like years where everything burned down and it truly felt like I was moving backwards at times, but I know you’re going to be a year of evolution, expansion, and re-birth. I can feel it.

A Look Back at 2018

It’s so interesting to think back on this year… 2018 was a very challenging year for me. (And to be honest, 2017 wasn’t exactly easy, either.) There has been so, so much change, and change can be really f*cking hard at times. As I’ve been taking some time to reflect lately, I’ve been so ready to turn the page and put this year behind me. But as tough as this year was, I actually wouldn’t trade it. For me, 2018 was one of those formative years that truly shapes you.
