bareMinerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation!!

Hey guys! Today I want to talk to you about my latest obsession that I have been using nonstop since I bought it, the new BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation by bareMinerals! I was so excited when I found out that bareMinerals was coming out with a liquid foundation, and even more intrigued that it was going to be a SERUM liquid foundation, as I had never heard of that before. There are several serum foundations now, which I think is great. There really was something missing on the spectrum of liquid foundations that serum foundations have filled, lighter than a regular liquid foundation but more pigmented then a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. Read on to hear my thoughts on the serum foundation that started the craze!

Affordable Antioxidant Serums: Desert Essence Pomegranate Face Serum and Trader Joe's Antioxidant Facial Serum

Hello ladies! Today I am going to be talking about two affordable antioxidant serums that I am trying at the moment. As you know, antioxidants are a skincare ESSENTIAL (read my in-depth post on antioxidants to learn more). Unfortunately, a lot of antioxidant serums that are sold at certain stores (ahem, Sephora!) are super expensive. At the end of the day, you don't need to be spending huge amounts of money to get your antioxidant fix. As long you buy a serum with stable antioxidants, effective packaging, and you store it in a dark, room-temperature location, you will reap the benefits. I recently found these two serums that I want to tell you about because they both have a really good blend of antioxidants (remember, combinations are better) and are SUPER affordable. Plus, they are all-natural, which is always a good thing!

Our Engagement Story ❤

So today I have some very big news..... I'm engaged!!! My boyfriend (fiance now!) Alex proposed to me over the weekend. I was expecting it so it was not a huge surprise, although he still managed to surprise me in the way he did it! In this post I thought I'd give you a little history about us, as well as tell you about how he proposed!

Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum and Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45!!

Hello lovelies! Today I wanted to talk about two skincare products I am currently OBSESSED with. As you know, skincare is very important to me. Especially since I was a little sun worshipper in high school and used to laugh at the thought of SPF, I am seriously trying to stave off any further damage (as well as repair some of the damage I'm sure I've already done). For me, that means sticking to my top skincare essentials: SPF, Antioxidants, and Retin-A (post on Retin-A coming soon). I have other skincare ingredients that I think are really important to use, (i.e. peptides) but as far as every single day, without fail, its really those three: SPF and antioxidants to protect, Retin-A to repair.
