winter beauty favorites

As I write this, I'm in bed recovering from the flu - apparently God heard and answered my prayers of "please let my little sister get better and just give me her flu" so ironically I haven't touched many of my beauty products in a week and my skin is a mess. Once I'm better, I'll definitely be coating my face with these favorites, which all served me well this winter when my skin was a bit less crusty and sensitive from constant nose-blowing. These beauty favorites also aren't winter-specific so I'll be using them year-round but I did acquire them and/or use them a lot in the past few months. Hopefully winter isn't going to last much longer (despite what the groundhog said) because I'm tired of getting sick and would love to go out without covering my face (and makeup) with a scarf. I hope you enjoy this deep dive into my recent favorite makeup and skincare products!

sephora vib sale recommendations

Hi everyone, hope you had a good Monday! This week is exciting if you're part of the Sephora VIB program because it's time for the VIB sale! I'm a Sephora VIB so my sale is from the 11th to the 14th of November, and VIB Rouge already had their sale this past weekend. If you're a VIB or Beauty Insider (your sale is coming later this year) and are getting super excited about saving on beauty products since they never go on sale, this post is for you. It can be very overwhelming to walk into Sephora and see row after row of pretty products so I've rounded up some of my favorite products that I've purchased at Sephora plus some things I think are definitely worth trying out with the 20% off discount from this sale. I went browsing at Sephora yesterday to see all the holiday displays so this post will have some of my favorite new gift sets as well. Enjoy this post and have fun saving at Sephora!

weekend adventures & mini haul

Hi guys! Gerome and I didn’t leave the house at all yesterday (and probably still won’t today) because he’s been sick and now I’m feeling sick. It’s probably because we spent too much time out in the cold this past weekend. Feeling bored by the places we normally frequent in Boston, we explored everywhere from Charlestown to Newport, Rhode Island. Worth getting sick with the weather now getting better? Probably not, but we still had a lot of fun and did some shopping along the way. Keep reading to see where we went and what we got!

Sephora VIB Sale Picks

Hey guys! It’s that time of the year again - Sephora’s Beauty Insider Sale! It’s the perfect time to find new goodies to try or restock old favorites since you get a 10% discount if you’re a Beauty Insider and 15% discount if you’re VIB or VIB Rouge. I’m VIB this year and I already got something at the sale and plan on going back for more. It runs runs from April 8 to 13 for VIB, April 7 to 13 for VIB Rouge, and April 9 to 12 for Beauty Insiders. Check your invite from Sephora for the specific sale dates for your Beauty Insider level. Since it can get pretty overwhelming shopping one of the few sales that Sephora has, I thought I’d put together a guide of some of my favorite things that you can grab from the sale!

Sephora Haul

As always, I’ve been trying to curb my spending (especially on makeup) but of course a few things have slipped through. Thanks to /r/MakeupRehab on Reddit, I’ve even gone as far as making a makeup inventory spreadsheet to keep track of all the cosmetic products I have. Editing spreadsheets is also a very calming activity that I encourage anyone to try if they enjoy organizing things and need stress-relieving projects to start (this does not include work spreadsheets because those are obviously not fun). I now know that I own 120+ products which seems like a lot but is still considered a tiny collection to serious makeup addicts out there. Despite my attempts to exercise control, I’ve still gotten a few things from Sephora lately so I thought I’d share them with you!
