On Nourishing: Caring for Yourself During a Quarantine

  I feel like I have seen dozens of posts like this go up on the past week, so was hesitant to create my own. However, something about several of the blog posts I’ve read regarding self-care over this quarantine don’t sound like self-care to me. They sound like work. They sound overwhelming. So IContinue reading “On Nourishing: Caring for Yourself During a Quarantine”

On Nourishing: My Complexion {true botanicals}

  A little over a month ago a got into a conversation with a brand I have been fawning over for years. True Botanicals is a beauty product line that rests on the ethos that skincare should be safe, natural, luxurious, and still effective. Unfortunately, as consumers, we rarely get access to all four withinContinue reading “On Nourishing: My Complexion {true botanicals}”

On Reflection: The Long and Short of It {my hair}

  Short. Light. Dark. Blonde. Long black.   No, it’s not how I take my coffee. It’s what I’ve done to my hair over my 20 plus year history of fighting and eventually succumbing to embracing its natural form. Fiery red. Growing up I always had very long, shiny, baby blonde hair, but when IContinue reading “On Reflection: The Long and Short of It {my hair}”

Dear Molly, How do you feel beautiful when you barely feel pretty?

Some days I feel really special and beautiful and other days I barely want to look at myself because I don’t feel pretty. I guess what I’m asking is, how can you feel beautiful when you barely feel pretty? How can you change your thinking like that?   Feeling beautiful and feeling pretty are notContinue reading “Dear Molly, How do you feel beautiful when you barely feel pretty?”

On Reflection: What a Structured Morning Has Done for My Well-being

  One month ago I attended a wellness weekend here in NYC that was put on by Mejuri. Post-event I was so motivated I sat down and quickly penned a few promises to myself about what my new goals were and how I wanted to implement changes in my life. My overall goal was fairlyContinue reading “On Reflection: What a Structured Morning Has Done for My Well-being”

On Why: Beauty is Your Birthright

  I prefer my shower temperature somewhere between scalding and boiling. You know all those hot and heavy shower sex scenes? Not in my future. I’ve yet to meet another human who likes their showers nearly as toasty. But I’m about to make a big switch. I’m going to start taking cold showers. Pause for reactionContinue reading “On Why: Beauty is Your Birthright”

My Favorite Products for 2C/3A Curls

I’m deeply invested in my skincare, as well as in my haircare and I’ve found that finding the best line up for your wavy/curly hair can be a lifelong task. Curls change with the season, day to day with the humidity, and they even change as you age. I have a mix of 2C wavesContinue reading “My Favorite Products for 2C/3A Curls”

Skincare Meets Makeup {Glossier}

I haven’t always been very skincare conscious, but a trip to Paris in the spring of 2016 changed all of that. Since then my skincare has become a high finessed routine with each product undergoing an extreme vetting process. It makes me months to fall in love with a product and it’s tough to breakContinue reading “Skincare Meets Makeup {Glossier}”

Favorite Face Masks from Sephora

I’ve been a pretty avid masker for a few years now, and after several hundred (maybe thousands…) of dollars spent on different masks I’ve created a list of my absolute faves. A good face mask should do what it promises, but also should be incredibly satisfying to wear and rinse. CLARIFYING GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD® Activated CharcoalContinue reading “Favorite Face Masks from Sephora”
