My Cruelty-Free Hair Care Routine

The number one compliment I get from people (you, strangers and friends on TikTok and Instagram, strangers at the grocery store, my students…) is that I have really pretty hair. People have been DMing me and stopping me to ask what I use for so long that I decided to finally put together a post of all my products (all cruelty-free btw) and hot tools that I use. I hope this post bestows upon you the same smooth, shiny hair that I strive for!

2022 Goals and Vision Board

I have some ambitious plans for 2022! Explore my 2022 Vision Board and see how I plan to reach the goals I’m setting for myself this year.

A Few of My Favorite Things

I used to do a monthly roundup of my current most used and loved products, but for some reason, I stopped. I’m not sure why this monthly roundup ended, but I’m very excited to bring it back. Scroll through to see and shop some of my current favorites.

Sephora Spring Sale Favorites

I’ll admit, I don’t shop at Sephora a ton. Still, I can’t resist a good sale. I know the “real” beauty bloggers shared their Sephora Spring Sale favorites over a week ago, I’m sharing mine today. It’s short (in comparison). It’s inexpensive and quality stuff, and it features products I use and recommend, and some I’m really excited to try.

Valentine’s Day Style Guide

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to deck out in shades of pink, white, and red. My affordable Valentine’s Day Style Guide includes items as low as $5. Many items are on clearance or sale, so start shopping before they’re gone!

July Favorites

With our recent move, I missed my June Favorites post, so I’m happy to revive it this month. I’ve doubled down on this post by including a bunch of things that I would have liked to include in the June post if life (and 800 boxes) hadn’t gotten in the way. This month’s favorites cover some favorites in home, beauty, and style. Enjoy!

Prime Day Finds

Prime Day is here (and almost over!) again! I spent hours online combing through the deals and talking myself in and out of putting items in my basket. Ultimately, I remembered I’m poor, so I only walked away with a few items. See my tiny haul and some Prime Day tips for this holiest of online holidays!

May Favorites

Okay… so I know we’re already about halfway through June, but hear me out… I’m a teacher and my school gets outย wayย late, so I’ve been up to my eyeballs in grading and putting out fires (mostly metaphorical ones) for the last few weeks. I only just had the brain power and time to sit down and write about my May favorites, and I’m so sad that it’s so late, but I do love these items and I really think they’re worth sharing.

Amazon Summer Haul

You know how much I love Amazon, and as usual, they came through for me. I’ve listed my summer haul of affordable finds that I can’t wait to wear all summer long. To see my full try on and get my detailed take on each piece, see my IGTV post!

Blue and White Easter Dress Roundup

For Easter this year, I brought two kinds of cupcakes and my spring dress game. I love this blue and white dress, which was made for sunny spring days, and I got tons of compliments on it. Since so many people asked about it, I found some similar pieces and linked them here. Most are in the $20-$30 price range!
