BEAUTY REVIEW: BYBI Strawberry Booster Facial Oil

BEAUTY REVIEW: BYBI Strawberry Booster Facial Oil

My personal quest to find the best facial oil continues and in today’s post I’m sharing what could be a very strong contender!

I stumbled across the BYBI Strawberry Booster facial oil during a trip to Target. (Yes, it was one of those trips to Target where I needed one thing, but left with many, many more.) The packaging definitely caught my eye as it’s a mix of hot pink and light pink with gold lettering, which gives off a very chic appearance.

August 2021: What I’m Into

I always find August to be such a weird month.

It’s back-to-school for kids and feels like the unofficial end of summer. Yet (here in Florida at least), summer is still going strong with plenty of sun, humidity, and HOT temperatures. I’m excited about the upcoming change in season and holidays being on the horizon, but I also feel sad that I didn’t get out to the beach or pool as much as I wanted.

Does anyone else feel like this??

Given the whole summer ending/fall beginning vibes, I wanted to share a new round-up of my favorite things right now!

What I read: July 2021

What I read: July 2021

July proved to be another strong month of reading for me!

I didn’t break my record (looking at you, July 2020), but I managed to squeeze in seven books this month featuring a good mix of fiction and non-fiction choices:

Malibu Rising
Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable
The Most Beautiful Girl in Cuba
The Rejection That Changed My Life
The Maidens
I Was Told There’d Be Cake
People We Meet on Vacation

PRODUCT REVIEW: Acupressure Mat & Pillow

PRODUCT REVIEW: Acupressure Mat & Pillow

I love the idea of acupuncture.

As someone that carries a lot of tension in my shoulders and upper back, the idea of being able to release that tension while also experiencing other physical and emotional benefits sounds incredible in theory.

But there’s a big problem… I don’t like needles.

That’s why I’ve been intrigued by the idea of acupressure mats for some time as the mats feature plastic massage nodes instead of needles. So, a few weeks ago, I finally made the plunge and bought one.

I hope everyone is having a good summer so far! Between a vacation (finally!!) and just relaxing, I’ve been a little late in getting my June reads posted. I had a good mix going on this month with both fiction and non-fiction included.
