In case you were wondering, teenage Kim was the worst. She turned her nose up at everything her mom bought because it wasn’t the “right brand”. Jokes on you, angsty Kim, Mom was on to something. The older I get, the wiser more financial responsibilities I take on, which makes me cautious of where I spend all my hard earned cash. I’m still not convinced that face masks are a necessity, but the beauty industry has ingrained it into society’s brain that we need one more step to our skincare routine. While I’m all for investing in skincare (you’re stuck wearing it for the rest of your life), I’m always down to save money on something I literally wash down the drain. If you’re looking for a drugstore face mask that’ll give you clear pores and buttery smooth skin, girl, do I have a treat for you.
I’ve had chronic dry skin for as long as I can remember. This was long before middle school when it was cool to douse yourself in Bath & Body Works cucumber melon lotion. I’m talking 5 years old and crying because the skin on the back of my hands was so dry it cracked and bled. While this isn’t a permanent fix, I’ve sworn by this method for years. If you have dry cracked hands and you’re on a tight budget, all you need to do is rummage through your linen closet.
One is the loneliest number, especially when it comes to food. Think about the last few times you hung out with your friends. More often than not the occasion revolved around food. Even if your gang isn’t hunting down the city’s best brunch spots, you always socialize over some cocktails and carbs. Eating is a social activity, so what happens when there’s no one to share a meal with? For one thing, you get to eat whatever you want. No compromises here.
If there’s two things young people women look forward to, it has to be PGL and PSLs. I’m not a scientist, but I think I’ve discovered that they have much more in common than we originally thought.
Despite being a health nut, I was hesitant to hop onto the wearable fitness tracker bandwagon. At first I thought it was creepy that it could track your location and your sleep patterns. But soon after I found myself addicted to the data, even checking my sleep stats the moment I woke up every morning.
Having a fitness tracker is like having a clingy significant other. Your relationship is fun and exciting at first. You’re trying things you’ve never done before (aka walked around your neighborhood) and it’s pushing you to be a better version of yourself. But you soon realize that it’s actually controlling your behavior. Telling you to move every hour (excuse me, I’m busy) and making you a slave to everything it says. Not sure what I mean? Here are some signs that you should kick your fitness tracker to the curb.
Have you ever had to choose between eating dinner at a normal hour or going to the gym? Now there’s zero excuse not to exercise at least once a day. Grab some leggings and station yourself in front of the closest microwave. Here are 3 quick leg workouts you can do, not matter your eating habits.
I’m a sucker for anything trendy. Combine that with also being healthy? Sold. Take all of my money.
If you’ve been paying attention to your local grocery store, you might have seen kombucha popping up on the shelves over the last year or so. What exactly is it? And most importantly, can you mix it with alcohol? #priorities
