Y’all, I am super excited about starting this series. As you guys know, I am a lover of products. I have an obsession with trying new beauty products and my bathroom is FULL of products I’ve tried and loved or tried and hated. As I am preparing to move a little ways down PCH to Huntington, I am packing up my things (again) and organizing all of my products on top of trying to fit in the new ones I am accumulating as the weeks go on.
I try products from makeup to hair to skincare to shower goodies to anything that promises to make my skin soft and glowy or my hair voluminous and shinny. I’m a sucker for good packaging…
Along with buying tons of products that I see other bloggers using, brands often reach out to me with new products that they want me to try and review so I thought that this series would be a good way to incorporate those products onto my blog. This series also lends to the idea of starting up a YouTube channel, which is something I have been thinking a lot about.
All of that to say, here’s to fun new products and Friday’s!
Monday’s are always a little rough to start off, which is why I like to start my day off with some tea (Rishi is my current fave) and some Jesus. Pretty much how I like to start off most days, but it makes Monday’s a little bit better.
This past weekend I was able to take a quick break from work + social media and it was immensely refreshing. I am going to do a little recap of my weekend in the mountains later this week! I also have lots of fun ideas for content (like a ‘product of the week’ concept) and new collabs + products to share with you guys that I am super excited about. So staaaaaay tuned.
I’ve had a million different things on my mind for this post. I wanted it to be personal. I wanted it to be an update on life. I wanted to move past just chatting about my outfit, move past SEO terms and audience centered content. I wanted to be vulnerable. I wanted to be open. But that didn’t really help me narrow it down. So I will be going a little bit deeper here. If you are up for the challenge of connecting the dots throughout this post, maybe there will be something that catches your attention.
I talk a lot about my blogging journey, where I began (see my first post here) (lol) and where I am hopefully headed. Along the way, there have been and will continue to be many things that I try that lead to success and that also lead to failure.
If you search ‘how to be a successful blogger’ on Google, these things will probably pop up:
– Email lists
– Sponsored posts
– Facebook Groups
– Google AdWords
– Sell your soul
Last week was a weiirrrrddddd week for me. Going through some kind of blogger rut and it was NOT FUN. But the good thing is that this week I have a fun look for you and have lots of content in the works (like my fave spring/summer beauty products).
Today’s look is brought to you in partnership with JORD Wooden Watches and there is an awesome giveaway at the bottom of this post! Also, if you clicked on this link just for outfit details, scroll down to the bottom and check out my outfit roundup.
I am all about eating healthy and I am all about eating healthy EASILY. If it is too much work and I am not in the mood, I will chose unhealthy snacks/meals over the healthy ones. And that is not the right move! I am currently trying to eliminate dairy completely from my diet, which is horrible considering pizza is a main food group in my book. My go-to breakfast and snack currently is overnight oats! They are healthy, filling, and EASY. I have many different recipes that I rotate but the one I have chosen to showcase today is an apply cinnamon situation.
Early morning meeting? Needing a quick meal before pilates? This is the perfect option.
It is easy to make multiple different recipes the night before and have your choice of flavor waiting for you the next day.
Welcome back and Happy Valentines Day (or Galentines Day in my case)!! I am here to chat about gal-pals and their importance as well as open up about how long distance relationships with your bffs are incredibly hard, but incredibly worth it.

Welcome to Forge A Frenzy babes!
I love being productive and I really really love starting a new week refreshed from a full yet relaxing weekend. That includes blogging away the day about my favorite beauty finds!
Mini side note: I have recently joined ClassPass. If you haven’t heard about ClassPass, here’s a recap: ClassPass is a nation-wide company that allows you to take a wide array of workout classes, from dozens of different studios, and places the classes and reservations all in one place! They have locations in all major cities and even some smaller ones as well. You sign up, choose your location, and then begin browsing all of the available classes and their times that work best for you. There are 3 different types of memberships with varying prices that allow a certain amount of classes per month and a certain amount of visits to an individual studio per month. I chose the largest membership deal because I need to get hella toned for this SoCal summer that is quickly approaching. The largest option is $115 a month for 10 classes! With up to 3 available visits per studio. I’m obsessed. I’ve been doing barre and pilates like its my JOB since I started. It’s also an excuse to get a cute new gym bag (;
