MY DAILY SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR MANAGING HORMONAL ACNE

Those you who have been following my blog for a while know that I have struggled with hormonal acne over the last few years. While previously I’ve taken medication to treat acne, now I’m relying more on topical treatments since my acne and breakouts have stabilized. I wanted to share with you guys my daily skin care routine because I’ve found it’s worked pretty well for me. I've been using most of these products for 6 months to a year. However, keep in mind that we all have different skin types so what works for me might not work for you.

5 TIPS TO SIMPLIFY SHOPPING FOR SHORTS

I find that shopping for shorts can be tricky with my body type! The most common issues I run into as a petite and pear-shaped lady are: waist gaps, tightness in the hip area, and shorts being too short since I have a bigger bum. In order to avoid these issues I’m sharing some of my tried and true shopping tips to help make the process easier for you.

IS OUTDOOR VOICES CURVE FRIENDLY?

While Outdoor Voices uses plus models such as,  Barbie Ferreira and Lena Dunham is known to wear the brand, I still couldn’t help but wonder is Outdoor Voices curve friendly? In some ways I think no because don’t offer plus sizes (hopefully they will in the future!), but in some ways in think yes. My initial experience with the brand was kind of meh. While many people I know rave about the brand, when I first tried on their famous tri-colored Springs leggings I was not in love. They are made out this fabric that is a little stiff and in my opinion kind of itchy so I wasn’t totally sold the way everyone else was. I definitely had to do somewhat of dance to get the leggings on period. However, this was about two years ago so recently I decided to give them another chance since they have been releasing some new products recently.

MEGABABE ROSY PITS VS OLD SPICE DEODORANT REVIEW

I have been using Old Spice deodorant for as long as I can remember. If I had to take a guess, I probably started using it in high school or college. The main reason I’ve stuck with it for so long is because I feel like it works way better for me then other women’s branded deodorants on the market. This is probably a little TMI, but on the scale of barely sweating to sweating a ton, I’m definitely past the mid way point so that’s why I’ve used Old Spice for ages. 

Recently, though I learned that Megababe launched their Rosy Pits deodorant. After seeing a few reviews on Instagram that people were subbing out their Old Spice for Megababe, I decided to give it a try.  So far I’ve been using it for a week and wanted to share my thoughts so far.

EVERLANE REVIEW - NEW ITEMS!

I'm so happy that Everlane finally opened up a store in NYC! Now I no longer have to deal with the hassle of buying online and then returning things later. In light of their store opening, I decided to write a fit review for their most recent product launches: denim shorts, $100 wrap dresses and white denim pants. Some of my readers asked for me to show pictures of me wearing the items in addition to writing reviews, so I'm excited to share in this post that I'm doing just that. (Always feel free to send suggestions because it helps me improve my website!)
