Sunshine is beautiful.

Beautiful: I have been lucky in my career. I've had more dream jobs than one person should be allowed (Hello, L'Oreal!). I'm not saying they have been easy. Actually, the opposite is true. Each one was challenging in different ways and at different times of my life. I traveled a lot and worked really hard to get where I was. Now, I have come full circle, back to what I love most about the beauty industry... helping women understand makeup. I hope everytime you visit this blog you see something or read something that inspires you!

Gorgeous: It was a gorgeous Winter morning on my first day of work at philosophy (filed under DREAM JOBS). It was here that I learned all about skincare. It changed my life. I learned that your makeup will only look as good as the skin that's under it. So simple, right? From that day forward, I made a promise to myself that I would take good care of my skin. My first step was to wear SPF every single day (something that I did, but not every single day). Six years later, I have kept that promise to myself and I encourage anyone who'll listen to do the same!

Makeup: Not all SPFs are created equal! Using SPF is the easiest (and cheapest) way to slow the signs of aging and to protect your skin for harmful rays! Here is a crash course in SPF (see above). I hope this guide helps!

1. philosophy hope in a jar spf 25...$40. Details: If you are looking for a amazing moisturizer and SPF... look no further. This is it! It's perfect! (

2. La Vanila Healthy Lip Screen SPF 30...$16. Can't get enough of this brand or this lip balm!

Do something lovely: Everyone's definition of "dream job" is different. It's never too late to switch gears or find what you love to do-- ever! I'm an example that you can actually live what you love!

Special thanks to my favorite boss (not going to name any names) who gave me the two best pieces of career advice: 1. If you don't want your boss's job, you're in the wrong job. 2. People don't work for a company, people work for each other. I always think about these little pearls and my time at philosophy where I met a group of amazing and talented women!
