Natural Brand Review: BRAD Biophotonic Skin Care Anti-Fatigue Mist

WHAT IT DOES/INGREDIENTS The regenerating … Continue reading Natural Brand Review: BRAD Biophotonic Skin Care Anti-Fatigue Mist

How My Quest for a Natural Acne Treatment Began

When I was in high school I suffered from horrible acne so I jumped on the Proactiv bandwagon, which I used consistently into my mid-20s.

When I first started attending fashion shows I remember being amazed at how short the shows were. I think I over-glamorized the industry, which don’t get me wrong, is absolutely fabulous. But, I expected a fashion presentation to be this 30-minute-long extravaganza, and quickly realized that a designer can only introduce so much new clothing in a season, so it’s impossible to have looks that … Continue reading NYFW Recap: Fashion Palette: Australian RTW SS18 Collections
