Review: Otavea Body Scrubs*

I love supporting local and small businesses as much as I can. Did you know that local and small businesses have a huge positive impact on our country's economy? I'd throw numbers out there but it's been a while since I've taken an Economics course lol! 

Putting schoolbooks aside...

Happy Wednesday! I meant to give an update post on my skin sooner but things have been quite busy in the house!

Interview | James Vincent, Makeup Artist

I am so happy to be able to share with y'all my interview with the one and only, James Vincent. He's a complete sweetheart, very laid back, and easy to talk to! (I kept telling my friends at The Makeup Show this past weekend about how much I wanted to squeeze him like a teddy bear when we hugged but I'm sure he wouldn't have appreciated that lol!)

I was lucky to have an opportunity to interview Lauren Napier of CLEANSE. Lauren is an amazing makeup artist with over 15 years of professional experience and also a successful entrepreneur.

After a personal experiment which left her feeling delirious, Lauren created CLEANSE - a set of twelve individually wrapped facial cleansing wipes, perfect for when you're on the go.

Now that I'm slowly resurfacing, let's dive into a problem I've been dealing with for quite some time (about 3 months now). My skin! I've been dealing with the most horrendous breakouts in my life (and way back when, I thought that my adolescence acne was the end of the world for me, ha!).
