2018 Goals

I know that January 1st is just another day with the same 24 hours as December 31st. It doesn’t matter – there is something about a New Year that gives me a burst of energy and renewal and puts me in goal setting mode. I love to set big goals and make plans to achieve them.

No Makeup Tutorial

There are a number of reasons I choose not to wear makeup on a particular day. The spectrum of my daily relationship with makeup ranges from absolutely nothing but moisturizer on my face to full-blown glam, but a few reasons I choose not to wear makeup sometimes: To give my skin a break.

5 Subscription Boxes I’m Planning to Try in 2018

A friend of mine once joked, “You need a bank account just for subscription boxes!” OK, well, she was half-joking. I love subscription boxes and trying out new subscriptions throughout the year. Some of them I hold onto (Ipsy, I’m looking at you) and some of them I try for a month or two and cancel, but I love the thrill of getting surprises in the mail each month. Below are 10 subscription boxes I want to try in 2018, as well as which ones I ditched and kept from 2017. I also included a few non-box subscriptions I...
