My Nightly Skincare Routine

My nightly routine is multi-stepped but quick. After a long day, the last thing I want to do is spend forever preparing for bed. This routine takes me about 5 minutes, and the products are affordable and effective.

6 Tips For Your Cactus League Spring Training Trip

Some people are fall people, some are summer, but my favorite season is baseball season, and I’ am SO glad that we are so close to the start of another 162 games (at least).

A tradition started a few years ago that I now look forward to every year: Cactus League Spring Training. This is a trip I look forward to every year, and today I’m sharing some tips for those of you who might be considering or planning a trip.

The Perfect Brown Boots

Last week I posted my February Favorites, and it included a picture of me wearing one of my absolute favorite pair of boots. I didn’t link them but I got a handful of messages and comments about them on Instagram, so I wanted to do so now. I’ve also rounded up some other potential runners-up for my boots. You can shop them here!

By now I’m sure you all know by know that I’m addicted to online shopping, so I’ve decided to start doing a monthly round up of some of my favorite items, complete with links.

Valentine’s Pieces for Under $35 (That You Will Want To Wear Year-Round)

I typically don’t buy a ton of holiday-specific clothing because I like being able to rewear and restyle my clothes year-round. One of the reasons I love the clothes in today’s post is because these pieces are budget friendly, perfect for Valentine’s Day, and have tons of year-round potential.

Shower Products for Sensitive Skin

I’ve always had super finicky skin, so I have to be mindful of the products I use. Luckily for sensitive skin sufferers like me, I had a realization in the shower (as one does) a few mornings ago: I finally have a really great set of products that work with my sensitive skin! And what’s even better is that all items are available at Target and/or Amazon, which means they are affordable! The most expensive product on this list is only $12!

2019: Intentions For The New Year

I’m not a big subscriber to the whole “New Year, new me!” thing. I prefer to set intentions based on reflection – I take stock of my achievements and pitfalls of the previous year, and determine how I can continue the lifelong process of self-development, discovery, and improvement.

San Jose Food Roundup

LA is my happy home now and for the foreseeable future, but there are obviously some things I miss from San Jose. I could ramble off a laundry list of things I miss, but instead I want to give you a short list of my favorite places to visit in my old neck of the woods, south San Jose.

It’s food. All five places are food.

If you’re surprised by this, you clearly haven’t been following along.
