5 Jams to Get Fit To


When it comes to fitness, nothing makes a workout more fun than having some seriously awesome tunes to pump your body to! I think having a proper workout mix is such a huge part of getting into shape. The songs help you keep to a vigorous pace, they get your heart rate up, and can make workouts more like a dance party than a grueling annoyance. Today I'm bringing you five jams that have been fueling my workouts lately. I can't get enough of these songs, and they always make me ready to bring the heat!

Murad Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser - Review

Murad Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser, $28.00
Last summer I had my very first facial. I had no idea what the aesthetician would say about my skin or what she'd end up having to do. After shaking off my nerves, and gritting my teeth during the extraction part, the aesthetician told me that I actually had quite good skin. I was shocked! I've struggled with cystic acne and dry, patchy skin, so I just assumed my skin was crap. Instead, I found that I had been fundamentally misunderstanding my skin and using the wrong products which is why my skin was so wacky!

Birchbox, $10/month
We're nearing the end of March and that means it's time to take a peek inside this month's Birchbox! March's theme is "Spring Forward", and it is all about discovering new favorites that help you get more out of the gorgeous spring months. I'm a lover of fall and winter, but I have to admit that I'm super excited for spring to get here, so these products could not have come at a better time. Let's take a look at all the March goodies!

Benefit Cosmetics BADgal Waterproof Eyeliner - Review


Benefit Cosmetics BADgal Waterproof Eyeliner, $20.00
It might seem strange to say, but choosing the perfect eyeliner can be a very personal thing. Everyone wants something different from their eyeliners and need their liners to do different things. And once you find the one, it can take an act of God to buy something new. For years I've been using a Maybelline eyeliner that I love, but it is constantly smudging throughout the day. So it's back into the eyeliner waters to find a new love. If you're in a similar boat, then read on as we test out a cult classic liner from beauty fave Benefit.

LUSH Cosmetics Lip Scrub | Bubblegum - Review

LUSH Cosmetics Lip Scrub | Bubblegum, $9.95
When it comes to my lips, I set aside a little bit of time everyday for some needed TLC. I have always had incredibly dry lips. No matter how much water I drink or lip balm I use, my lips were always in some state of cracking and peeling. That is, until I was introduced to today's sugary sweet product!

e.l.f. Studio Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Review + Swatch

e.l.f. Studio Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, $3.00
As a makeup junkie, I love wearing makeup as much as possible. However, when I'm going to be home for the day, or I only need to run out and grab some groceries, I don't like wearing a full face of products. I like to turn to handy dandy tinted moisturizers and those little complexion miracles, BB creams. Not quite ready to plunk down the cash for the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, I picked up the e.l.f. Studio Tinted Moisturizer, and unfortunately I wasn't impressed.

Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional - Review

Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional, $30.00
While proper application is a huge factor towards having that flaw-free makeup of our dreams, it's not the only thing we can do to ensure the best results. An equally important necessity is to create a perfect blank canvas with our skin by eliminating flaky patches, neutralizing redness and dark circles, and filling in our pores. If your pores are an area of stress for you and you feel like nothing works to properly conceal them, then you'll want to stick around for today's amazing pore-filling miracle.

Today I'm bringing you a fantastic lippy that will be perfect for the coming season, but is still versatile enough for these cold, late winter days.

Snag Her Swag | Lady Gaga's Edgy Neutrals

Mother Monster, Lady Gaga, was recently spotted stepping out in Manhattan in this edgy, but girly neutral number. Perfect for spring, this white moto jacket paired with a blush hued mini and matching pumps would be a great Easter outfit for the more glam minded.

Throw in the sheer white tights, and you could even wear it to church for Sunrise Service. I love how she adds a bit of vintage with the rounded sunnies to keep this ensemble grounded and easy to wear. Now show your teeth, y'all!
