PDO Thread Lift | My Review Of Dissolvable Sugar Threads

For thirty-two years old, my skin is looking pretty good. So far everything is intact and thankfully my adult acne phase has passed (knocks on wood), but recently I’ve started to notice some crepey-ness and thinning of my skin, especially around my mouth. My laugh-lines seem deeper. The skin on my cheeks and around my eyes, thinner. I blame the sleepless nights of that first year postpartum and not to mention those long days sunbathing with baby oil (why didn’t anyone warn me?!), smoking cigarettes (guess it wasn’t so cool after all) and sleeping in my makeup (ugh). While thin crepey skin…

Microcurrent Facial | My Review of 8-Weeks of Microcurrent Sessions

“It reeducates the muscles,” Valentina purred in her husky Russian accent as she pulled my cheek so high with a metal prong my chin started to tilt back towards her. She circled rhythmically along my lower cheek with the second prong. “This reeducation,” she continued, “teaches the muscles to lengthen (if contracted) or shorten (if sagging), and supports all of the secondary benefits seen from microcurrent.” Secondary benefits being: reduction in visible fine lines, lifting, improved firmness and tautness of skin. For the longest time, I never gave my facial muscles much thought, or any thought really. Who thinks about them when…

Heir Atelier Face Primer REVIEW

Blurring imperfections, this is the name of the game when it comes to makeup – at least for me. Oh, how I long for the skin of my twenties. While I know that’ll never happen, I can at least fake it with a good foundation (Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation has been on heavy rotation) and an incredible primer which is where my latest obsession – Heir Atelier Face Primer – comes into play. Now, if you’re unfamiliar with primers, they work by creating a barrier between the makeup and the skin preventing sweat and oil from causing the makeup to crease,…

My Favorite Makeup of 2019

Looking back on 2019, I can confidently say it was the year I re-entered the makeup world and remembered how to apply eyeshadow! Not really by choice, more necessity I left full-face makeup, false lashes, and often — showers behind in 2018. I was postpartum and barely surviving that first year. But with Chloe walking, sleeping (thank, god!) and developing more independence (she’s now in daycare and loves it!) as the days go by, I have been able to return to makeup! My husband is thrilled. And so is the outside world. I’m sure my mailman was wondering who the disheveled, un-showered,…
