I’ve struggled a lot with my mental health over the years. After struggling for a really long time in my late teens and early 20s, I’ve now been on the same prescription cocktail for several years now. My longest lasting relationship is my therapist and I would probably never leave the east coast because of […]
Over the years I’ve tried lots of different skincare tools. I wanted to make a list of all the ones I’ve tried and what they did or did not do for my skin. This tiny little steamer may seem useless at first, but trust me its a powerful device. I love how hot it gets […]
I realize I make a lot of ridiculous purchases, however, this one I think takes the cake. I bought a hammock chair with this huge indoor hammock chair stand. Totally ridiculous, but also totally completely relaxing. I put the chair in my bedroom which is far away from my computer desk. I don’t want to […]
The best thing about having a man who is as comfortable in his own skin like my boyfriend is getting to do things like skincare Sunday with him!
I received my Olive and June nail polish kit today and so far so good. Their unique tool for applying the polish is called a “Poppy” and it’s actually extremely well designed. The Poppy makes painting your nails by yourself with your non dominant hand SO much easier!
I’ve decided to make a list of ways you can decorate your home to welcome the outdoors in. Instead of one long post, I will be doing a series of posts about this topic, the first decorating idea is adding some indoor plants to your home.

After a crazy couple of weeks, a little regularity is a good thing! It made me really happy when my FabFitFun Summer 2020 box came, on time, as usual. I really enjoyed being surprised with awesome goodies and products I can use for self care Sundays, which let’s be honest is every day these days.
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks so far. I’ve been muted on my social media for the black lives matter protests. The voice of people who look like me have been heard for so long, I wanted to take the time and let others speak and be heard.
Today was the first real beach day on Long Island. It was around the high 50s and it was nice and warm when sitting in direct sunlight. Matt and I started up the old Jeep and drove to the beach for a walk on the beach. There were police there making sure that people were […]
So after several days in sweatpants and hoodies, I had enough! It’s friday, and I need to figure out a way to make it feel like the weekend, even though all these days are blending together like a fruit smoothie. After taking a hot shower, I put on these wide leg pants (yes, they where […]
Good afternoon everyone who is quarantined. I’d like to cheer you up by reminding you that you are not alone. We are in this together, and we will make it through. Also remember that just because your stuck inside doesn’t mean you are without nature. Think about buying a plant if you are inside your […]
I’ve escaped NYC to head out to Long Island, where there are still lots of sick people, but this way I can be quarantined with my boyfriend and out of a hot spot in Brooklyn near lots of corona cases. My parents are staying put on the Upper West Side where the number of cases […]
New York City has been hit hard by the covid-19 virus and New Yorkers are held up in their apartments working from home. My friends and I have been coping by doing weekly video chats with each other. Hopefully this will help us all stay sane. We are all trying our best to reduce the […]
Make Jewelry Like most girls, I loved making friendship bracelets at summer camp. Now I use upscale beads like moonstone, rose quartz, and cubic zirconia to make jewelry. I always buy my beads from https://www.firemountaingems.com/ . Adobe Creative Cloud is free for 1 month! Use this as an opportunity to learn a new program or […]
Since we are all self isolating (I hope!), I decided to dye my hair because I will be working remotely for the next few weeks.
Ever since the Dyson hair dryer came onto the market, I have been interested in buying a new hair dryer. I’ve had the same hair dryer for over 5 years now and I thought it was time for a new one. Black Friday seemed like the perfect time to buy one. I decided on a […]

I probably only cut my hair about twice a year, if that. You would also probably be shocked to hear that I actually cut my own hair sometimes (O.o). I take off around 2-4 inches or more each time I get my hair cut. Did you know that cutting your hair does *not* make your […]
Its so hot!!! There is a huge heatwave hitting NYC this weekend and its been pretty terrible. Listed below are some items I use to beat the heat.
