My Current Skincare Routine

I change up my skincare routine every so often, based on my skin’s needs and based on new products that I want to try.

Open-Face Turkey Sandwich

I recently had my Beautycounter launch party, where I had made cheese and cracker platters. I also added apricot jam, which was a huge hit. It really was so delicious added to the cheese and crackers. So, I decided to try adding jam to another savory dish – a turkey & cheese sandwich! The subtle taste of grape in the background really turns this ordinary turkey sandwich into a gourmet lunch! Don’t knock it until you try it 😉 Properly…

An Honest Review of Beautycounter Balancing Charcoal Mask

As you may know from reading my review of Beautycounter’s face makeup, when I first tried Beautycounter, I wasn’t so thrilled with how the makeup looked and stayed on my skin. That was 2 years ago and I’ve been wary of trying any of their other products since then, especially since I’ve been using other natural skincare products that I absolutely love.
