With the holiday season in full swing, it’s the most wonderful time of year and often one of the busiest! Blink, and you might miss it as Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve are sure to fly right by. This year has been such a challenge. Now, more than ever, it is important to carve out some time for yourself to relax, reflect, and focus on self care for the holiday season.
While self-care can come in the form of taking care of your skin, relaxing in a warm bath, or treating yourself, it also means eating well, getting enough sleep, moving your body, and keeping up with healthy habits. This holiday season proves to be an unusual one for many of us. That’s why it’s vital to take care of your mental and physical well being during this time. I’m thrilled to partner with Babbleboxx this holiday season to share products that will help you check more off your holiday to-do list and feel less stressed, whether it’s running fewer errands, battling breakouts, or getting better sleep.

This summer, it’s all about the staycation! That’s why I was so excited for a little weekend relaxation at nearby Lake Roesiger, where my friend Megan’s family owns the cutest little lakehouse. Of course, I had to pack all of the summertime essentials for the perfect day away from home!
It was a beautiful warm sunny day as I packed up my car with a giant pool float and a bag overflowing with my summertime essentials to enjoy lakeside! On the list are the obvious, of course: a cute swimsuit, a giant beach towel, a sun hat, stylish sunglasses, SPF, and a change of clothes for later. However, I’ve rounded up a few additional things that made this warm summer day even more enjoyable.
For everything you need for a day at the lake and all of my must-have summertime essentials, keep reading!
If there’s one thing I don’t want during the holiday season, it’s a bad hair day. Who has time for that? Not me! There are plenty of things that can go wrong around the holidays: getting trapped in a sudden downpour, long lines at the grocery store, traffic on the freeway, having a wardrobe malfunction, forgetting a present… the list goes on and on. With all of that and more to worry about, I just want to wake up and know that I’ll have shiny, voluminous hair, at least most days.

That’s why I’m so excited to be working with Pantene to take their 14 Day Challenge. If you follow me on Instagram, then you may know that at the beginning of December, I started the challenge, which meant switching all of my hair products to Pantene for 14 days. Using the Pantene Sheer Volume Shampoo and Conditioner was an easy switch, and the Sheer Volume Dry Shampoo proved to be a brand-new favorite for me!

With the goal of no bad hair days and only great hair days, I’m excited to share my results with you today! While I’m at it, I’ve also put together some tips for pumping up the volume on your strands if, like me, you find them looking a little lackluster during this dry and chilly time of year!
It’s the holiday season which means it’s that time of year… gift shopping! More specifically, if you’re like me, it’s time to buy treats for your favorite people to show them you care. I often find myself hitting my favorite retailers for beauty gift sets.
Why? Because they’re typically filled with the best of that brand, and they’re sets typically filled with perfectly sized products for someone trying the brand for the first time.

It’s safe to say that with the impending holiday season, there’s going to be a stressful moment or two in your future. One of my favorite rituaals, when I’m feeling stressed, is pampering myself at-home. Drawing a hot bath, relaxing under the bubbles, giving myself a manicure and pedicure and treating myself to a face mask are some of my most cherished moments when everything else in the world feels like too much.

Recently I was introduced to the brand Silk’n, which makes a variety of at-home skincare devices that allow you to get specialized aesthetic treatments right-at-home. The Silk’n Infinity, for example, makes permanent laser hair removal as simple as a treatment at-home every few weeks. Another product, the Silk’n ReVit, allows you to have a microdermabrasion facial as often as needed, from the comfort of your home!
