The Essence of My Skincare Routine

I don’t know about you, but I am a sucker for a good skincare routine. I love love love the feeling of a cleaned and refreshed face after a long day. Well, I love the feeling even if it hasn’t been a long day at all.

I used to stick to the same routine every single day for years, but in the past few months I’ve been stepping out and trying new products. Tatcha products have always caught my eye, but I never made the investment. Now, I don’t know why I never did. About a month ago, I was sent a couple of Tatcha’s products to try out, and I fell in love.

1. The Essence

I wasn’t really sure what an “essence” was, but I wasn’t going to turn down skincare products. Ever since I started using it though, I am addicted. It has made my skin feel so, so soft.

2. Violet-C Brightening Serum

I am not lying to you when I say that this stuff WORKS. I was in desperate need of a new vitamin C serum when I received this package, so I was overjoyed when I saw what was inside.

My Top 5 Glossier Products

It’s time to talk about Glossier. Again. If you are new here, you will quickly learn that I absolutely love Glossier. I have been a huge fan of their products for quite some time and have managed to visit both the New York and Los Angeles showrooms. (Both are stunning.)

Everything Glossier does is minimalistic and beautiful. Their brand is one to watch. If you are new to the game, or if you just like reading about Glossier, see my top 5 must haves below.

1. Lash Slick - This mascara is my go to. It is perfect to throw on before running out the door, but it is also buildable if you want a heavier eye look.
2. Priming Moisturizer - You know the smell that engulfs you every time you walk into a spa? That is what this smells like, and it even feels like a spa treatment too.
3. Boy Brow - I think this was the first thing I purchased from Glossier. I never used to do my eyebrows, because I just didn’t know how. Boy Brow makes it so easy.
4. Balm Dotcom - I hate the feeling of chapped lips, but I also do not want to constantly apply lip gloss. chapstick, etc. This balm lasts so long and is my favorite lip product.
5. Mega Greens Galaxy Pack - Also part of my first Glossier purchase, this face mask feels so good on your skin, and my face feels so fresh and clean after I use it.

Before Fall Falls

Ok ok I know its only September, but I promise fall will be here before you know it. What I see as the best time of year is right around the corner, and these are some products you NEED this fall.


Summer Fridays Overtime Mask

I love a good face mask. Seriously - you should see my dedicated face mask drawer. This one smells like pumpkin and fall and everything good in the world.

Josie Maran Body Scrub

Body scrubs are a must especially during fall. Your skin starts to get super dry, but a body scrub can help get rid of the dead skin and leave you feeling softer than ever.

Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly

I love having a moisturized face in the fall, but I hate when my skin looks oily. This jelly is perfect because it is so lightweight but it keeps my skin hydrated all day.

Bobbi Brown Night Drama Palette

Bobbi Brown always kills it with their eyeshadow palettes. This one is perfect for fall with the darker colors.


Feu De Bois Candle

Burning candles in the fall is one of my most favorite things to do. When the air starts to get crisp and you can smell fall scents throughout the home, it is absolute heaven.

Renee Throw Blanket

Curling up on the couch with a good blanket is oh so relaxing. When the blanket is extra furry, it makes it even better.

CB2 Dip Mug

To accompany my nighttime couch and blanket time, I love having a cup of tea. I love big mugs too because for some reason they make me feel even more cozy.


Vince Oversized Sweater

An oversized sweater is yet another must for fall. I love the neck and the cutouts in the back of this Vince piece.

Rails PJ Set

I’ll admit I am not the best at wearing matching pajamas, but I love the idea of it. Striped pajamas are so cute to me. Maybe this will be the season I change my ways!
