Long before I was home all day every day (forever and ever?), I had a pretty low maintenance makeup skin care routine. I’ve since amped up the skincare part, but broke up with makeup for the time being. I generally wore minimal makeup during the workweek to begin with and often only applied a full face of makeup on the weekends if I was going out. ‘Member going out? I’ve had breakouts from a young age and have been on an endless journey to find the best products possible for my skin. I cringe when I think about all of the harsh things I’ve used over the years — I went through a straight up rubbing alcohol phase (!!!!!!!!) as a teen. So needless to say, I’m doing a lot of cleanup. That cleanup process has been including a lot more earth friendly, skin friendly, cruelty-free products. I’m not perfect and I’m still learning — but here are a few I’m using allllll the time these days while I’m home.
If there’s one thing I’m usually on the hunt for, it’s something vintage. There’s something about finding the perfect piece that no one else is wearing that is just so exciting for me. My collection isn’t very big, but I do love the pieces that I have. Over the last year I’ve found it a little more difficult to find vintage clothes in my size. It can be pretty frustrating, but I’m here to tell you that plus size vintage is not a unicorn, you just have to have some tools under your belt and a bit of patience.
