Some of you may have noticed I took small hiatus from blogging. Over the past couple months, I have undergone some intense life changes. It took a lot of energy to do anything so I put all that energy into finishing the remaining weeks of winter quarter. I made it through with higher grades than I anticipated and now I am ready to take on my last undergraduate quarter at UCSC! Since I now live alone, I am driven to keep better track of how I spend money.
Hey everyone! A little update to go with today’s post about Grocery Outlet: recently, I have been so busy between work and school that I have not been able to do much shopping for food or other goods. I have been eating most of my meals at work or going out to eat. Life is super hectic but also fantastic.
Hello everyone! I hope you all had a stress free holiday season and are enjoying the new year. Here is a list of products from the past few months of Petit Vour boxes. I am slowly getting better at writing reviews of the products within the time that I get them. Sometime it is difficult because I do not immediately find a use for a product. Other times I just find myself so busy with work and school that I forget what time is all together.
Hi everyone! I hope you all had an awesome weekend. I have been trying out a bunch of different toothpastes and thought I would share my recent purchase. Along with deodorant, a good toothpaste is something I often struggle to find. I decided to try out some toothy tabs from Lush and bought the “Chou Chou… I Love You” flavor.
Hello everyone! I wanted to do more Petit Vour beauty box videos but long story short, I do not currently have access to editing software or have room on my computer. One of my summer projects is to clean up the files on my computer so hopefully I get to that sooner than later… In the meantime, I am going to post a written review of everything.
This summer in Santa Cruz has had some truly hot days. It got into triple digits recently and was terrible. I have fair, sensitive skin, and usually still get sunburned (while wearing sunscreen) on my first full day of exposure. Sunscreen is a must because even spending a small amount of time in the sun can expose you to sun damage. I have tried to be a lot more skin conscious this summer!
Nothing says “summer” like the smell of freshly applied sunscreen. I went to Walgreens a couple weeks back to buy what I thought was a spay sunscreen from Kiss My Face. As it turns out, I bought their spray moisturizer instead of their spay sunscreen. I figured I might as well try it out since I am always keen to try new moisturizers.
Since I recently moved, I have not had a lot of time to cook or go grocery shopping. I woke up the other morning really wanting a tofu scramble, but soon realized that I was out of olive oil and Earth Balance. That prompted me to look around the kitchen for what little alternatives were available. I settled on sesame oil and went from there.
I know many of us struggle with the decisions of whether to buy cheap or expensive tools to go along with our makeup. Sometimes, buying an inexpensive tool ends up being more costly than investing in a quality tool. This post will discuss a tool that I bought recently that has changed my beauty routine for the better.
