Summer weather requires slight adjustments to our beauty routine. In the winter, it’s all about the perfect moisturizers, full coverage foundation, slight bronzing, and red lips. However, Summer brings warmer weather, sun exposure, and natural tans. Meaning, that heavy winter look isn’t exactly going to stand a chance in 80 degree weather. It also requires skin protection against different environmental elements.
For these reasons, I recently started to incorporate BB (beauty balm) and CC (color correcting) creams into my beauty routine once Spring hits. They are lighter formula foundations that often have SPF infused into them. Their sheerness makes the makeup breathable and last longer in the warmer months. Plenty include anti-aging properties, skincare elements, and flawless finishes.
If this is something you’re looking for, keep reading as I share the top 5 BB and CC creams currently on the market.
Champion, Adidas, Nike, even Fila are sports brands that are having a moment in fashion right now. I am a big time athleisure fan and have been waiting for the day that sweats in public are acceptable. The one sports brand that is primarily in Europe that I am dying to bring to the US has a very special place in my heart. It is called Ellesse, and it is where my mom got the spelling of my name. But that’s not the only reason why I want to bring this Italian brand to America.

I’ve been receiving quite a few questions regarding traveling through different countries on my own. Ranging from what to pack to how I deal with language barriers. I thought I would write up a list of tips I’ve found to be helpful while it is fresh in my mind. If you haven’t seen on Instagram, I’ve traveled through Tokyo, Kyoto, Dubai, and now Patras Greece. This is my first solo trip and I am beyond grateful I took the leap. You can read all about that experience.
I took a weekend trip to Kyoto and it blew my mind. I had no idea what to expect when arriving by the Nozomi bullet train. I really didn’t think I would have loved it as much as I did. There is so much to see and do in the cute city. There is so much natural beauty to the town. I also know part of the reason I loved it so much, was my experience at the Millennials in Kyoto. This is not sponsored btw, this is my honest review and support to a company who is doing something awesome.
Many women lead full and hectic lives. You might be juggling the demands of your boss with family life and various other commitments. One thing’s for sure, most women feel like they have very little spare time. A full calendar can be great; it means that you’re living a fulfilled life and are in high demand. However, it is important to be mindful of the fact that nobody can run on empty for very long. It’s vital to have enough time in your life to relax and unwind. Stress and fatigue can creep up on those who haven’t taken any time out for themselves, and especially of those who just keep plowing through their responsibilities and commitments. Believe me, I am that girl! But I realized that the constant on-the-go can lead to potential health and well-being issues, resulting in time away from work and responsibilities that you can’t afford to miss.
I’ve received quite a few requests for this post, so here it is! How to avoid overpacking for a trip. I’ve done a month long trip through Europe with one carry-on suitcase, I am currently on a three month trip with that same carry-on suitcase and a backpack. Needless to say, I’ve gotten this minimalist packing approach down to a science. In this article, I’ll share what exactly to pack with you for a trip. Whether that is a week long or a month long. If you are willing, it can be done with two carry-ons. Are you ready? Let’s go!
I made it to Tokyo!! Finally, after years of dreaming about it, I am in this magical city. Growing up, I was taught several things about Japan. The World War II, Buddhism, Kimonos… not particularly in that order, but you get it. The few things that stuck out the most were, Yen, the Bullet train, and capsule hotels. The idea of sleeping in a pod absolutely fascinated me. So when I knew I was heading to Tokyo, I had to do some research on which capsule hotel I should stay at.
If you are like me and are a wanderer by nature, keep reading! I love to pack in as much as possible when I have time off. I recently discovered a way to not only book flights easier, but also find a free stopover in a country nearby. Basically, two vacations in one!
