Summer Skin


For years I used the Clarisonic face wash and mask that went with my Clarisonic Mia 2 brush.

However, with having moved back to the Houston area this past year, I noticed that neither the face wash or mask were working as well as they did when I lived in Oregon. This was due to my skin having changed a little since moving and also because of living in a more humid and polluted environment.

So after noticing this, I did what I do best–I researched dozens of products, read the product testimonies, and even tried a select few to gauge the results for myself. I eventually decided on two Origins products that seemed to combat the acne and oil that my skin deals with during the summer here–the Out of Trouble mask and Zero Oil face wash.

If your skin also breaks out and tends to get quite oily, I fully recommend you try these products. They have been working so well for weeks now, and I love how my skin feels after using them.

Little Fall Things

little fall things 2013


Now that Fall has come, I felt it was time to buy some of the usual necessities I cherish during this time of year. Living in the Northwest can sometimes take a toll, especially when the sun is hardly out and you have to resort to Vitamin D pills while the rains come. However, there are quite a few up sides to the rainy and cold weather. I love being able to bake some warm pumpkin bread when it’s cold, and I’ve always loved being able to wear cozy sweaters as Oregon’s Fall is genuinely perfect sweater weather. Last year, I had come to love knee high socks and being able to wear them over my leggings on my “lazy days”. As for the Clarisonic set, I recently got in the mail as a gift from my wonderful mother and can’t wait to try it out! 

Also, happy first day of Fall everybody! Hope all of y’all enjoy it!
