July 3, 2018

It's been awhile since I've written a blog post and there are a lot of reasons and excuses I could give. In the past year, I've been through phases of being obsessed with blogging and wanting to quit, but it's taken me until now to make a decision.

As much as I love creating this blog, it's become more than I ever thought it would be. When I started blogging six years ago, being a blogger or influencer didn't exist. I loved taking pictures of my nails and makeup on my Canon point & shoot camera and posting right when I got home from school. For better or worse, social media and influencer marketing have completely changed what it means to be a blogger and it's not what I want to do.

I've loved blogging for the past six years and it's taught me so much about the industry that I'm sure to use in my career. Blogging has given me friends, memories, and opportunities that I'm extremely thankful for. Thanks to everyone who has supported me along the way! While I'm closing this chapter of my life, it's not to say that I'll never come back. But, for now, farewell. xx, Lauren

Beauty Travel Essentials Part 2

Makeup essentials for traveling featuring BECCA Cosmetics

A couple of weeks ago I posted my beauty travel essentials featuring the skincare products I use while traveling. Today's post is a continuation; it's the makeup I wear while traveling! As you know, I've been in Hong Kong for almost two weeks. I've established my daily beauty routine (obviously it changes wherever I go) and it's perfect for traveling gals!

The Best Travel Outfit Ever

The day before my Hong  Kong flight I was in Urban Outfitters (when am I not there) picking up another pair of my favorite skinny jeans (and they're super on sale!!). As I was wandering around the store, I realized that as much as I love those jeans (and I really do) I was not looking forward to wearing them for over 24 hours on the plane and in the airport. That's when I saw the dress.
