    Easy 3-Ingredient DIY Face Mask

    Hey, hey! Today, let’s talk skincare. As many of you know, I suffer from chronically dry skin. I constantly find myself hopping from brand to brand, trying cleansers and moisturizers like no tomorrow. But I do love face masks- they are often chock full of wholesome products that have tried-and-true benefits for stressed-out skin. Plus, because they sit on your face for a longer period of time, they more effectively strip away oils, gunk, and dead skin cells, leaving your skin refreshed.

    5 Fun Couples Costume Ideas

    Guess who’s back, back again?! With spooky szn officially under way, I wanted to make my triumphant return to my regular blogging schedule with a fun, light read on some potential couples costumes for Halloween. Last year, Mike and I went as Westley and Buttercup from The Princess Bride, which is far and away my favorite movie of all time. It was fun, but I’m looking to switch it up this year with a funny, matchy-matchy costume. Being one half of a relationship, it can sometimes be tough to agree on a matching theme- but I always say it’s better to go cute and quirky than weirdly suggestive. (there are…
