Start the New Year Right With #FitTeaDetox



If you read this blog often enough you'll know I'm a major tea drinker. I think tea can do wonderful things for your body in a natural way so when FitTea reached out about their 14 day detox, I wanted to test it for myself. The most popular New Year's resolutions are always around health and fitness. FitTea is an all-natural detox tea that super charges and boosts your overall immune system while giving you more energy. Their tagline is "Give us a few weeks and we'll give you a new waistline." A great way to kick off the new year!

Review: Dr. Jart+ BB Bounce Beauty Balm


When POPSUGAR released their iconic beauty products every girl must try, it gave me a laundry list of items to try! One of those items was Dr. Jart+ BB Bounce Beauty Balm ($48) . I'm already a huge fan of their BB cream so my curiosity was peaked.

#DatingGirl: 5 Types of Guys You'll Find on Tinder

Unfortunately Danny Castellano is not one of them

Tinder is a dark, dark, dark place. READ THE PROFILE! Sometimes the freak is hidden in the very last line in a very long About Me description. Or sometimes the freak is hidden by a somewhat normal seeming photo and then they message you. I've learned new slang that I did not wish to know... ever (thanks Urban Dictionary). You may even see some sipping straws. For my latest Dating Girl post, I'm breaking down five guys you will run into on Tinder. Hope over and share your experience!

Happy MLK Day


Today we remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It's important to stop and remember since the world moves so fast. There's been so much violence and bad news this year and it's only January. May we find some piece and justice soon. I strongly encourage you to read the very important conversation around #BlackLivesMatter. Speak your truth, not others.

My January Julep Maven Box


This month's Julep Maven box was the Chrysalis Collection. I selected the It Girl box because it had 2 of the polishes I wanted to try and added on the lip treatment because I love trying new lip products. Here's what was inside:

Book Review: 'Bad Feminist' by Roxane Gay

I found my new BFF! I heard so many wonderful things about Roxane Gay's New York Times bestseller Bad Feminist. The book is a collection of essays covering all issues surrounding modern day feminism from portrayals on the big and small screens, to politics, music and all things in between. She even takes on a former professor of mine, but more on that later. Get ready to get schooled. There is a lot of material to digest in this 300+ page book but it's so worth it.
