In the seemingly never-ending battle with my skin, I decided to go for a consultation with a new dermatologist a few weeks ago. After feeling jaded for a few years since my last visit with a not-so-helpful derm, I bit the bullet and decided to start at square one again. The news she gave me has been life changing, friends. I can finally stop chasing all sorts of cures and treatments that aren’t working now that I have a diagnosis of what the heck is actually going on — and that is, drumroll please… rosacea.
Last summer, with a trip to Sephora and a $200 budget, I wrote about my complete overhaul to my makeup routine. Now, it’s about time I owe you a review of the products I picked up.
Over the last few months I can probably count on two hands how many times I’ve worn make up. My tried-and-true daily routine wasn’t covering up blemishes and left me feeling pretty matte and flat, so I decided to save myself those 10 minutes every morning and embrace a bare face. But, I decided to get with the times this week, and went to Sephora for a make-up overhaul.
I’ve been pretty vocal on my social media about dealing with adult onset acne for the last two years since going off the pill (and turning 30). I use the term “acne” loosely, obviously recognizing that there are different levels of severity and some would consider mine pretty mild. But, all the same, the break outs, while small, are constant, painful at times, and leaves scars, so, for me, are worth trying to address. And now I want to share some of my best learnings with you.
Pink is my favourite colour, and I think it’s time to disprove the idea that pink = little girl girly. I’m digging the infusion of this hot colour into everything from fashion to decor nowadays. The photo of the amazing pink ombre hair inspired this post, proof that this colour can add sass without being too “girly”.
I’m getting my hair cut this weekend, and lately I’ve really been digging + wanting a shorter ‘do. These are some of the looks I’m inspired by and hope to channel with a new cut.
