What’s in My Makeup Bag

Happy weekend! After a long quarter, I’m finally done with classes. And, I’m incredibly excited to be going to London today for my journalism class. I’ll be documenting the trip on Instagram and Twitter, so be sure to check out how I’m spending part of Spring Break!

Now, this post is unrelated to my travel plans. Today, I’m going to focus on what’s in my makeup bag! I mentioned a little bit ago on Instagram that I would be writing a post about my current favorite beauty products and I have delivered. I definitely like my high-end products, but if you follow my Broke Girl Beauty series you know I stick to a budget, too. So the products currently in my makeup bag are a pretty good mix of drugstore and high-end products. Check them out below! Read More »

DIY LUSH Bath Bomb

I‘ve been home for just over a week. It’s been so nice to relax and enjoy seeing my family and friends. One of the things I missed most about home (besides the aforementioned family and friends!) was my weekly spa sessions. I love putting on a face mask and taking a long bubble bath and just decompressing. But at school, I don’t have the luxury of a bathtub. So since I’ve been home, I’ve loved relaxing in the tub. And what better way to relax than with a bath bomb? I have no shame in admitting my addiction to LUSH, but their bath bombs can be pretty expensive. So I adapted this recipe for a DIY LUSH bath bomb that’s just as colorful and fizzy as the ready-made version.

This recipe includes good-for-you epsom salt and relaxing essential oils. Check out my recipe below!

Broke Girl Beauty: Skin Care

Hi readers! Before we get into the details of today’s post, I want to mention some exciting news (if you haven’t heard it already). Last week, CoverGirl signed James Charles to be their first male ambassador. He is an incredible makeup artist with a huge following on Instagram and YouTube (seriously, go check him out), and while he isn’t the first to do so, he’s breaking gender norms like nobody’s business. This is an amazing and high-profile opportunity to encourage anyone who wants to wear makeup to go for it. I want to mention that while this series is titled Broke Girl Beauty, it doesn’t mean the guys can’t get in on it too. Makeup isn’t just for women; it’s an art form that anyone and everyone with an interest should partake in.
