Spilling My Haircare Secrets with Kerotin

Do Kerotin Haircare products really work? Do Kerotin vitamins really help hair growth? Wtf is a silk pillowcase? What products should I use for easy, fuss-free hair styling? How can I repair damaged hair? These questions, along with many others, are often asked/googled about the Kerotin brand or haircare in general. I have exciting news - today, I’m going to answer every single one of them for you!

If you haven't heard the exciting news yet, here it is: I'm officially a KEROTIN HAIRCARE ambassador for the next few months! Let's have some real talk for a second. I only work with brands and companies that I wholeheartedly love and trust, and Kerotin is one of those. Even though I am being paid to create content for them and my links are affiliate, I would never promote products I didn't use and love myself. I have seen real results from Kerotin products, and I've used them long before this ambassadorship started. These products make up my hair care routine! I use every single one of these almost every day, and I have already seen dramatic improvements in the texture, strength, and look of my hair.

Is a $3 Makeup Sponge as Good as a beautyblender?

Makeup sponges are essential for me and pretty much everyone else on this planet. I've literally been using some variety of a makeup sponge since junior high. I'm sure you've seen dozens of sponges pop up in stores all over - from the Dollar Store to Walmart. Not all makeup sponges are made equally, so I wanted to test some different ones out and find out - can cheap makeup sponges really make the cut? I'm all for saving money wherever I can, but some things just can't be replaced with a cheaper alternative.

Travel Guide: San Antonio + Galveston, Texas

As I'm sure you know, last summer I moved to Texas for four months and had the greatest adventure of my life living in Austin. I'd only been in Texas once before last summer for a wedding, and we were only there for two short days. My mom and Madi hit the road with me last May, and we made a vacation out of it. We stopped in St. Louis, Waco, Austin, San Antonio, Houston (only for a few hours), and Galveston Island before heading back to Austin. After that, my mom and Madi flew home and I started my summer in Austin. 

I was so impressed with San Antonio and Galveston Island, so I wanted to put together this little travel guide of my favorite places and things. We were only in each city for a few days, but I feel like we got a well-rounded experience in both San Antonio and Galveston. 

4 Ways to Have The Ultimate Self-Care Day with Dial®

What does self-care mean to you? We see the term all over the internet almost daily, but have you ever really stopped to consider what it is? For me, self-care is taking a day (or even just an hour) to do something for yourself and only yourself. There are thousands of products out there to use in the shower, and it can be hard to find the best ones.  Even though Target has dozens of body care products, Dial® brand is always my go-to - especially when I’m shopping for my self-care essentials. 

Travel Guide: A Local's Guide to the Wisconsin Dells

*This post is sponsored by the Wisconsin Dells Convention and Visitor's Bureau and The Palace Theatre. All photos and opinions are my own. 

When you think of the Wisconsin Dells, you probably envision happy families with small kids hanging out at waterparks and shopping downtown. This "family" side of the Dells is often talked about, but did you know the city has tons of fun things for adults too? I've lived a just a short drive away from the Dells my entire life. I've worked in the city for over 6 years, and I love exploring it in my free time. The Dells has a lot to offer that many people overlook - like the fact that it isn't just for families with little kids! The Wisconsin Dells would even be a great place to try your hand at a solo trip if that's your thing. As a 23 year old unmarried woman with no kids, I set out to find the best things for adults to do on a visit to the Dells. So grab your friend, significant other, or even your furry friend (the Dells is very dog-friendly) and hit the road towards the Wisconsin Dells; you will not be disappointed!
