the acne diaries… on BIRCHBOX!

  My final post is live on the Birchbox mag!  Check it out here.  This was my favorite post to write because it has been such a journey for me to figure out how to keep my skin happy and free of blemishes.  I’ve got 6 simple steps for you, and would love to hear… more

the after-workout transformation… in the BIRCHBOX mag!

If #nomakeupselfie is going to be a thing, I think #postrunselfie should also be a thing. Yes, I really snapped that minutes after walking in from my first run in forever.  Like, before I even stretched.  Check out how I went from red and sweaty to happy hour ready over on the Birchbox Magazine!  You… more

Sorry that this isn’t the greatest photo of the makeup!  I took some on my nicer camera, but the sun  was so bright that the color got super washed out, and I couldn’t really fix it in Photoshop.  The iPhone pic doesn’t really do this justice, but I loved the look and was eager to… more

and my February Birchbox review! But first, I should apologize for my absence over the last month.  I’ve been a really bad blogger and totally caught up in moving, unpacking, and the absolute craziness of my day job.  No more excuses!  I’m unpacked and mostly settled – and my new place even has room for… more

2013 has been a year of challenges interspersed with moments of bliss with the people I am so fortunate to call my close friends and family.  I would say my biggest accomplishment this year has been this little blog, and the amount of learning that has taken place since we launched 5 months ago.  I’m… more

november birchbox review: spotlight on color club

Oh man, this post is so overdue.  I swear I can maintain a work-life-blog balance!  You may have noticed that I didn’t post a gameday recipe this last weekend – I took a bye week and went up to Portland for some shopping, eating, drinking, and not a lot of rest or relaxation.  It was… more

two nights with birchbox

So I’m pretty much having the best week ever.  What more could I ask for during my birthday week?  You may recall seeing me tweet about a very exciting opportunity to have dinner with the Birchbox team and other San Francisco-based #birchbloggers: #birchbloggers dinner with the @birchbox masterminds and #sf #beauty gurus? I cannot imagine… more

Hiiiii beauty lovers everywhere!  I’m trying out a new format for my monthly box reviews: instead of dedicating the same amount of space to all of the products I receive, I’m going to feature my favorite product and include a “how to use it” section!  I’ll still provide a one-line assessment of the other products,… more

So it’s the tail end of September and I’ve finally gotten around to sampling and reviewing all of the products I received in my September Birchbox.  I got some great products this month!  I was unfamiliar with Paula’s Choice and Coastal Scents – and you know I love discovering new brands!  I was also really… more
