Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

BEAUTY FINDS: EDITION NO. 1


I can't help but try new beauty products with my new job. I figured while I am testing out all of these products, I'll let you know what new, great ones I find. Sounds good, right? Here is what I am loving right now...

Dry Bar Sake Bomb Shampoo and Happy Hour Conditioner

I have tried quite a few shampoos and conditioners. My hair is very particular so I have had varying degrees of success. I decided to bite the bullet and switch from drugstore to premium shampoo. At Sephora, they recommended this combination for my hair. The shampoo does a great job of cleaning without stripping and moisturizing my hair so it is left shiny. I am sold!

Bite Beauty BB for Lips in Dolce

I am a huge fan of lipstick but sometimes it just isn't practical to keep checking it throughout the day. I discovered this wonderful colorful balm. It leaves a hint of a beautiful fall burgundy while replenishing moisture to my lips.

Origins Active Charcoal Mask

Always willing to try a new mask, I put this highly-recommened mask on last weekend. When I spread it on, I needed quite a bit to cover my face but it isn't too pricey so that wouldn't be a big deal. As it dried, it completely tightened on my face. After washing it off, my skin was glow-ey and fresh. I don't know if it quite "sucked up" all of my impurities on my face (read: blackheads) but did make my skin look nice. It's hard to top my favorite mask.

Yes To Coconuts Cooling Lip Oil

One of the keys to wearing lipstick is having smooth, moisturized lips. No one likes a flakey lip. This lip oil feels so amazing on my lips. It has a cooling eucalyptus scent that reminds me of a spa. I always keep it in my purse and am pretty much addicted to it.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Hi-Shine Lacquer in Baby Jane

I had to include something fun in this list. I love this high-shine nail polish. It lasts forever and has a wonderful gel-like shine. I am such a fan of gels for their durability but, on the weeks when I am taking a break, this polish is the perfect substitute.
