What's in my Gym Bag?

Last weekend, I tried my first Lithe Method class at their Rittenhouse Studio. It was a fun, total body workout that definitely gets your heart pumping. I brought along with me a few things to freshen myself up afterwards in a leather sling backpack that I got while thirfting.

Weekend Inspiration: Blogger/Vlogger Books

Keep Calm, Drink Tea, Read Books
Some of my favorite YouTubers and Bloggers recently released a few books which may be great for a snowy/rainy/ugly day in with a cup-a-tea. If you're looking for a fashion, beauty, and lifestyle guide, check out Michelle Phan's Make Up Your Life. Interested in home decor, party planning, and designing a fashionable space, pick up Cupcakes and Cashmere At Home by Emily Schuman. This one's not yet available so you can pre-order it thru Barnes & Noble. Lastly, for a little bit of fashion and beauty inspiration from across the pond, read Love Tanya from YouTuber Tanya Burr.

The Beauty Diaries: eye+ by SkinOwl

SkinOwl eye+ Review

I haven't used too many eye creams in my life, but I know that the beauty gurus say to avoid wrinkles even longer, you should start using age defying makeup/treatments while you're in your 20's. Since I have a couple years left, I started using eye+ by SkinOwl. This stimulating eye concentrate is made with Hyaluronic Acid, periwinkle, and licorice to help firm the delicate skin around your eyes for a bright and healthy look. Of course, you'll also find familiar ingredients like cucumber and aloe for an amazing and instant cooling effect.

The Beauty Diaries: derma|e

With the temperatures plugging into the single digits, it's time to break out the hardcore skincare. Lately I've been loving my derma|e Vitamin E Intensive Therapy Body Balm. As soon as I jump out the shower, I make sure I moisturize my skin from head to toe with this super hydrating body cream. The derma|e skincare line is not only good for you, but the environment also. It's free of all the bad stuff like paraben, gluten, GMO, phthalate, petrolatum, and lanolin. On the other hand it's full of the good stuff like Vitamin E, Cranberry Seed and Red Palm Oil which deeply penetrates your skin to leave it feeling amazing.

You can find derma|e products online at or at your local CVS.

*Special thanks to derma|e  for sending me a sample of the products to review. All opinions are my own.
