How to Rock Second Day Hair

I am the queen of not washing my hair. On any given day, there is a 95% chance that my hair did not get washed that morning. To the average eye, however, my hair looks perfectly clean. That’s because I have mastered the art of keeping my hair looking clean and keeping the oil at bay. I put together a list of ways to keep your hair looking great so you can pull off second, third, and fourth day hair.

Summer Beauty Tips

Happy summer everyone! Since today is officially the first day of summer, I thought I would share some of my top summer beauty tips! This isn’t going to focus so much on makeup, but more on general summer tips to keep you looking and feeling great in the heat! I worked outside as a lifeguard for four summers, and was a swimmer for longer than I can count, so I’m very familiar with ways on how to deal with sunburns and chlorine. Hopefully this is helpful to you!

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Eyeshadow Review and Dupes

I was going back and forth with myself debating whether or not I should post this, because, as I’m sure you’ve heard by now, this palette was pulled from the collection and is no longer available for purchase due to poor and inconsistent quality. I ended up deciding to post it because although you cannot buy this palette officially at Sephora, it’s up for sale on resale sites such as eBay. So this review might be helpful for someone trying to purchase it, or for those curious about the quality of the palette and my take on it being pulled from the shelves. I also made a list of dupes, for those of you who were hoping to get your hands on this palette but were unable to. All the dupes I have, with the exception of one, are from shadows that I own, which is why there are a lot of palette repeats.

Boots Haul

I’ve always wanted to go into Boots. To me, it seemed like a magical place full of amazing products not accessible to Americans. That probably seems so weird to anyone who actually has a Boots, but being from the US, I can’t get to one without crossing the Atlantic. Everyone I follow on YouTube and a ton of bloggers constantly talk about going to Boots and all the amazing goodies they get from there. So when I was in Ireland and London, I made it my mission to get to a Boots and check out two brands that I’ve heard people rave about but can’t get here: No. 7 and Collection.

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette Review

becca faceLet me just start out by saying that I love Jaclyn. I think she has such an amazing personality and she is so talented.

When the palette got delivered to my house, I had just left for vacation, so I had to wait two weeks to officially get my hands on this beauty.

Fighting Body Acne

Summer is finally approaching, which means short sleeves, tank tops, and exposed skin. This can be embarrassing and almost unbearable if you’re suffering from body acne. I was never one of those people who was blessed with perfect skin. This rang true for my face and my body.

Around the time I got into my Sophomore year of high school, I noticed my chest and back began breaking out. Acne is never fun, and being a diver and a lifeguard, I was constantly in a bathing suit and unable to hide it. I did so much research and tried out so many ways to clear up my back, and eventually I found out some things that work for me. I’m no professional, I’m just sharing what worked for me. My back and chest have cleared up significantly, but they are by no means perfect, I still get the occasional pimple here and there. Below are my top tips to clear everything up!
