I’ve mentioned before on this blog how horrendous my skin used to be. Five years ago, I had cystic acne all over my face predominately in the chin/jaw area. If you don’t have bad acne, you probably don’t understand the emotional and social suffering that comes along with it. There were a few months were I didn’t even want to make eye contact with people. I never felt pretty and confident. My friends with clear skin would try to suggest things to help and it would make me feel even more frustrated. I have so few photos from this time period, because I would refuse to be in front of a camera during this portion of my life. For one really embarrassing photo of when my skin was actually clearing up, click my first ever blog post HERE.
A couple months for the regimen that my derm and I developed, I started to clear up…just weeks before a planned round of Accutane. Luckily I didn’t have to go on the risky drug because of the skincare routine I discuss in the below video. If you’d like to buy any Rodan + Field’s products through me click HERE.

As a true pisces, I live in a magical and delusional land in my head. In this world romances unfold the way they do in romantic comedies, everything at Sephora is free, Shake Shake burgers are a diet food, and we have the capability to clone Harry Styles.
In real life (what's that?), I spend my days pondering how Kylie Jenner's face changed so much. I'm a beauty junkie and pop culture-loving wedding videographer and freelance journalist. I have a Princess Jasmine complex. I am a Fanson (die hard Hanson fan). I enjoy belting old Celine Dion songs.
Please take everything I say seriously (I have my Masters in journalism from Syracuse University), but not too seriously (Cosmo is my favorite publication.)
