How I Double Cleanse, Makeup Removal and Foreo

I haven’t always cleansed my face the way I should. I was a body wash and washcloth kind of person until my mid twenties. Yikes! I got away with that in high school. My skin was okay, especially for a teenager. But once I started wearing makeup in my twenties I knew that kind of […] Read more…

My First Trip to Primark

There are so many Primark hauls on youtube. A lot of the British youtubers I watch have done at least one. Even Safiya Nygaard has done one! And it makes sense. Primark is a very cheap retailer that has a lot of current/trendy clothes. For 60-80 pounds you can get a lot. So I was […] Read more…

Going Crazy in London at Boots

I watch a lot of British youtubers. I can’t get enough. So you can imagine how I writhe in envy every-time I watch one of their Boots hauls.
