If you know me, you know how obsessed I am with green beauty. Ren Clean Skincare happens to be one of those brands I adore. Their goal of zero waste by 2021, 100% recyclable packaging, and goal to clean up the ocean and beaches is something every beauty company should aspire to recreate! I've tried a few products from Ren's Evercalm line (re-read the post here), but have never actually tried any of their body products. So when they sent me a few products I was game!

When I think of chicken and waffles I think of my best friend Liz. Anytime chicken and waffles is on a menu Liz always orders it. Surprisingly I've never actually tried the soul food tradition. When Cheddar's invited me to try this iconic dish I was game and especially if I got to experience it with my best friend! I love that Cheddar's is a place where I can be together with my blog and my friends. These days I'm so grateful when it all comes together.

Pixi Beauty is not a new brand to me although to be completely honest the only product I've tried from them over the years was a lipstick. I am still very familiar with their light green and pink packaging I've eyed at Target over the years. Created by Petra Strand, Pixi is all about a radiant "good night's sleep" look. These days that's all I really yearn for.

Lately I feel like this crazy, beautiful life has kept me busy to say the least. I feel like I didn't realize how busy things were until my best friend tried to plan something with me 2 weeks in advance and I already had prior obligations.That's the way things have been for at least the past month and a half. Work, school, and the weekend is filled up with all sorts of activities. I've been lucky to squeeze in a tennis match in honestly. When the City of Independence reached out to me for an influencer visit I was shocked when I looked at my calendar and I didn't have anything going on. I was ecstatic. A stay-cation away from class and work to head to Independence, MO (only 35 min from me) was exactly what I needed.

Before I left for undergrad I asked my hairdresser Alex to give me a new look. We decided to go with a more cohesive and straightforward look with one set length and a middle part. Since then my hair care routine has become much more manageable and it has been easier to tame my wild mane. As someone who works full time and goes to school my hair care routine is still constantly changing. Here are a few products I'm using to take care of my hair right now.
