For about a month or so, I’ve been waking up early, getting in my workout (and then it’s done for the day!!), showering and going through a morning “getting ready” routine. And honestly? I’m into it.
Shashi Batra launched Credo Beauty this past January as a site that offers dozens of natural beauty brands like Vapour, Ilia, One Love Organics, Lily Lolo, Acure and more.
Fourth of July will always be a special holiday for me. Not just because I love fireworks and BBQ and patriotic fruit cakes, but because it marks the weekend on which I moved to San Francisco. Six years ago last weekend, I made the best decision of my life (so far, at least).
No, not the TV series (to which I’m totally addicted). The Boyfriend, his brother and I took a trip down to the south to visit some of their family in Nashville. I’ve never been to Nashville before, so I was thrilled to get an invite, explore the city and revisit some of my country roots.
I’ve been working very hard as of late to eat healthier. I’d say it has to do with the changing season, but San Francisco is basically perpetually fall. I find I just feel better when I’m paying attention to what I’m eating and drinking and when I limit certain things (gluten, sugar, dairy) I tend to have more energy, feel lighter and cleaner, and just better about myself in general.
I’ve finally settled into an evening skincare routine that makes me so blissfully happy to crawl into bed. I’ve always known how important it is to take off your makeup before bed, but for years….I didn’t (shhh!!).
I’m obsessed with face masks. Clearing, moisturizing, cleansing, whatever your “ailment,” I can guarantee you I’ve tried a mask that touts its ability to fix it. So, I decided to start a new series on TOBR called “Mask of the Moment” (or MOTM). I’ll share with you the many masks I already own and the ones I can’t wait to try and, as always, share my honest thoughts.
15 years. It’s been 15 years since Ms. Marsell’s English class where I met my best friend. Much like the beginnings of many friendships, we didn’t quite like each other at first. But, we persevered. And throughout the last 15 years, we’ve continued to persevere.
Whew! It feels good to get back to the blog after a couple weeks of pure craziness at work. The week before last was Adobe Summit, the largest Digital Marketing Conference Adobe puts on every year.
It was the middle of June 2009 and my mom and I had walked miles and miles around San Francisco looking for an apartment. We didn’t have much time to find one, sign a lease and get a set of keys. We walked everywhere, sometimes in heels, and we just hadn’t found the right apartment for me to start my new journey in San Francisco.
During the holidays (man, the holiday seem so long ago, don’t they?) I was walking around the Sephora at Kierland in Arizona and I stumbled upon The Great Cleanse Limited Edition Set. Needless to say, it was love at first sight.
I spent this week in the beautiful state of Utah for work. Adobe has a huge (gorgeous) office in Lehi, Utah. Lucky for me, the weather was pretty mild for it being February and all.
