my January skincare + beauty edit (with Sunday Riley, Shiseido, Boscia & more!)

During the holidays, it felt like all I could do was just hold on tight. My skincare routine took a major hit because I was so damn busy, but during the month of January I worked really hard to get back on track. Honestly, my skin has never looked better than it has lately. I think it’s because I’ve really put a lot of time and effort into finding products that keep me moisturized and glowing. I always make sure that I try a product for at least 3 weeks before recommending it to you guys, too. Here’s my January skincare and beauty edit!

DIY mask & body scrub duo, a last-minute handmade gift idea!

Don't worry if you waited until the last minute to do your #Christmas shopping—just whip up this quick and pretty #DIY face mask and scrub set. Get the full tutorial at Jojotastic.com

Is it just me, or has the holiday season really snuck up on us this year? Virtually every person I know has been amazed (and a little dismayed) at the fact that it’s already less than two weeks until Christmas — I mean, isn’t that crazy?! If you’re like me, you’ve waited until the very last minute to book your flights and you haven’t quite checked everyone’s name off your gift list yet.

And that’s where this DIY comes in. We wanted to whip together something that looks beautiful, feels luxurious and can easily be assembled in no time, which makes it perfect for bringing along as a last-minute hostess gift or wrapping up in a hurry when your significant other tells you that his or her mother is coming to town for a surprise holiday visit. Thankfully, our lovely friend Rebecca over at Hillockburn Farm sent us over these skin-saving recipes.

What? What’s that you say? Oh, you’re way ahead of schedule and you had your shopping done months ago? Well, good for you. Why don’t you treat yourself to a coffee sugar scrub or a matcha and charcoal mask for being so darn ahead of the game (and then maybe you could come over and help me wrap? I’ll make cocktails!).

If you’ve been following along on my Instagram, you know that recently I tested out what was initially a ‘mystery product,’ which was revealed to be the new Olay Luminous Whip. After a few weeks of consistently using this product, I wanted to share even more about my experience with Whips and how it’s been helping to moisturize my skin this winter — after all, I think we can all agree that dry, wintry skin is not the best look!

Honestly, is there anything more romantic that the warm glow of a light candle? Not sure if you heard, but it snowed here in Seattle over the weekend and all I wanted to do was hunker down with a cozy throw blanket and read a good book. When it comes to candles, I always shop for really high quality candles because really notice a difference — in burn, in fragrance complexity, and even in the vessel. My recent candle favorite is Lightwell Co., a Texas-based brand using a blend of 100% American-grown soy wax and pure coconut wax.

The month of October has been a really interesting and evolving time for me in my makeup routine. I’m usually pretty maintenance and often don’t wear much make up. Lately, though, I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole of beauty YouTube and I am obsessed! I’ve found myself watching hours and hours of videos about contouring, eyeshadow blending, the pros and cons of certain foundations… like hours. There are a few products I’ve wanted to try thanks to this new addiction of mine, starting with BH Cosmetics and BECCA (plus, I’ve tried a few more skincare products, too).

my September beauty report (with Fenty Beauty, Boscia, Glossier & more!)

So many amazing beauty products came out during the month of September, you guys. Because I’m more interested in a natural makeup look and skincare, I’ve been focused on those types of products. I’m such a fan of products that simply make me look like the best, most refreshed version of myself, so that’s how this month’s beauty report leans.
