    Self Care with Nutree

    I’m not gonna lie, being isolated indoors has been difficult. Since I’m not currently working, it’s been a big adjustment! I’m used to being out most nights of the week for work related events/shoots so this has been a total 180 for me. Since I’m autoimmune, I haven’t left my apartment complex at all- I’m fortunate to be able to get everything I need delivered. With the exception of a 10 minute walk to my apartment mailbox, I haven’t actually been outside of my building parking lot for 45 days. It’s funny because before I started doing food photography and influencer work, I was home ALL THE TIME. Constantly being…

    Travel Skincare with Air Repair

    These items were gifted to me by Air Repair Skincare; however, all opinions are my own! When I travel I always worry about my skin. Since I live in the desert, I’m never quite sure how the changes in climate might impact my complexion and PH balance so it’s always a bit of a gamble. A few years ago, I came across a new skincare line in my Birchbox that turned out to be a total game changer for me when it comes to travel skincare. My first trial with Air Repair‘s Complexion-Boosting Moisturizer was a total life changer. Between eight flights from Vegas to Los Angeles to Tokyo to…

    Desert Hair and Somerfield Beauty

    This post was written in collaboration with Somerfield Beauty.  As usual, all opinions are my own! (Ignore the fact that my hair is a mess- it’s really hard to smooth it out when it’s dried out!) I love a good hair mask but it’s SO HARD to find one that works really well more than once! I had seen the Somerfield Beauty hair masks on Instagram and was dying to try them. I loved the idea of a mask that would really set into my hair and not be messy at all. Something I could use without getting it all over my hands and something that wouldn’t be super greasy…

    My Favorite Sleep Products

    Some of these item were gifted for review purposes; however, all opinions are my own! This post does contain affiliate links so if you make a purchase through the link, I may make a small commission. Even so, all opinions are still my own honest opinions! Moving is weird. I hadn’t moved in about 15 years so it’s definitely been a struggle. Getting used to a completely new environment is strange and if I’m not motivated to actually fall asleep, I will lie in bed and stress. I invested in a few products to help me relax before bed- I don’t like wasting valuable sleep time! Here are the top…

    New Move = New Mattress

    This post was sponsored by Voila Box. I received product in exchange for an honest review; however, all opinions are my own! I don’t sleep well. I’ve had insomnia for years and it’s often coupled with sleep apnea when my asthma and copd are really bad. Before we moved, I had a super old mattresss that had gotten really soft and squishy over the years. The attached topper shifted all the time and there were days I literally slid off the mattress and fell out of bed. To make matters worse- Roger (my puggle) is getting old and his joints aren’t grearnso having a super soft mattress was really rough…

    Rest & Relaxation- My Favorite Products for Unwinding

    Hey guys!HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! I know it’s been a while but trust me, I have a lot of great excuses! We had a pretty huge family disaster which is still ongoing so things have been rough to say the least. Also- I moved! Downsizing a home of fifteen years kind of sucks because I’m not great at throwing things out but we did it! I have to say- 2018 has been a really strange year but not always in the worst ways. There have been some great accomplishments too! More on those later! Since it’s been a pretty stressful year, today I’m sharing some of my favorite things that help me…
