Budget Beauty: Thayers Witch Hazel Lavender Toner

Toner. IS. Life.

No, really, toner is life.  It’s my favorite part of both my AM and PM skincare routine.  Why?  Well, it proves to me how clean my face truly is, and also makes my skin feel ready for the next steps of serum and moisturizer.

Since I love to try new products, I always bounce around from toner to toner…but the toner I’ve been using most recently is the perfect budget beauty buy.  Thayers Witch Hazel Toner can easily be found in Whole Foods or Target.  It’s a natural, alcohol free toner, that refreshes and cleanses the skin without stripping it of natural oils.

Are You Taking Evening Primrose Oil? You Should Be.

One of my 2018 resolutions has been to take more supplements and vitamins to keep me nice and healthy.  I’ve been incorporating a daily multi-vitamin, which I’ll share in another post, but I’ve also been adding in Evening Primrose Oil pills daily too.

Clinique Pep Start Exfoliating Cleanser + HydroBlur Moisturizer

I’m a big Clinique fan- every skincare product I’ve ever bought, or used, has been great.  I particularly love the Clinique All About Eyes Serum, it has a great cooling roller ball that’s perfect to use both in the AM and PM.  My most recent Clinique products have been from the Pep Start collection, the Exfoliating Cleanser, and the HydroBlur Moisturizer.

First of all, I love the packaging of the Pep Start line.  It’s bright, and fun, and makes you excited about your routine.  Or, maybe it just makes me excited, not sure- but regardless, the packaging is super cute!

D.C. Happenings: A Visit with Pennsylvania 6

I had the pleasure of touring D.C.’s Pennsylvania 6 Restaurant this week for D.C. BarScene.  As you may know, I posted a couple of weeks ago about a new venture I’m working on…@dc_barscene!  You can check out the full post here, but basically I’ve created an Instagram that will focus on the District’s best cocktails & wine.

I’ve been having so much fun reaching out to bars & restaurants in D.C. to feature them on my page.  I’m learning so much about the bar scene in the Capital and I’m super excited to feature Pennsylvania 6 both on D.C. BarScene and Love. Life. Beauty. today!!

D.C. Happenings: Fare Well on H St.

Before the start of the new year I had this grand idea in my head of attempting to go vegan.  It ended up not working out so well, but the good news s, I have been making healthier eating choices.  D.C. is def a health conscious city, and there are yummy vegan restaurants popping up left & right.  My personal favorite has been Fare Well, a cute little bar/ restaurant/ bakery on the H St. corridor.

Top Five Favorite Podcasts

Happy Tuesday!

Today I’m sharing my Top 5 Favorite Podcasts to listen to while on the go, or in the house.  Whether it’s in the morning while getting ready for work, in the car commuting, or cleaning around the house, I’ve been finding myself putting on my current favorite podcasts to pass the time.  I’ve also been making it a priority to listen to podcasts when driving back and forth to NJ when visiting home, and while on flights.  I love listening to music, don’t get me wrong, but I’m really enjoying this kick I’m on, and I feel like I’m learning so much too.

Remay Glide & Shave Gel Bar

I’m super pumped to be going to Naples, Florida for a few days during my spring break.  A few teachers, off work for a week, at the pool…could get pretty wild & I cannot wait.

One thing I know I’ll need to bring if I’m going to be lounging around poolside is my Remay Glide & Shave Gel Bar, which I’ve become obsessed with.  As women, shaving our legs can be super annoying, especially if you choose to use shaving cream.  It gets all over, is messy, hard to apply while trying to shave, the list goes on.  I typically use shower gel, but I hate using so much product like that, and I realize it’s not moisturizing my legs the way they need to be after shaving.
