Had a long day at the office? Exhausted from working on back to back on projects, been on trips for so long that you come back completely burnt out? Need a day just to yourself and your significant other? Sure, you can go to dinner and/or head to the beach for some fun in the sun, but if you're really looking for the best way to unwind, I suggest spending the day at the Montage in Beverly Hills.Read More
The majority of my favorite moments in my life are undocumented, and while I sometimes regret not capturing those times, it's probably best that it lives in my head versus on the Internet. What’s better – telling a story in your voice, in person over coffee to your friend, or having them read and scroll thru photos on their own?Read More
How often do you take time out for yourself? When was the last time you did something just for you?
We often put ourselves last and make others a priority, which is great, but in order to function at our best we need to be able to take care of ourselves first.Read More
Traveling, the ultimate test of any friendship and relationship. If you can survive a trip with your friend, well your friendship is pretty solid.
When it comes to traveling, I am super cautious about who I take my trips with. After all, you're going to be spending everyday with this person for X amount of days. If it ends up going sour, you can't really do anything about it. But, if it ends up being one of the best trips ever, you've found your ideal travel buddy.Read More
This is going to be my longest flight to date and the first time I'm visiting Asia. I'm excited, nervous, and paranoid at the same time, although the paranoia only started after my parents kept telling me stories about people getting kidnapped and/or getting really sick from the food they've eaten while in Asia. Anyone else's parents like to scare the shit out of you before you travel?Read More
Growing up, I've dealt with a lot of bullying and depression. Many of my friends also dealt with suicide, I know people who have tried to commit it, and I know of a few people who committed. I, myself, have contemplated suicide many times and have dealt with depression on and off. There isn't a real way to explain what you go through, what you're thinking at the time, but I remember the pain you feel. You zone out, nothing around you matters anymore, and you feel empty inside. I remember driving endlessly down PCH with my phone off, driving with no real direction and thinking, "what if I just slammed into a wall or drove off the side?"Read More
I woke up one morning, walked into the bathroom and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I looked myself dead in the eyes and started crying. I grazed my right hand across my cheek, feeling the bumps underneath my skin, before moving my hand across my chin. Nothing but bumps. My smooth skin was no where to be found and in its place was redness, irritation, acne that had slowly taken over my face. I couldn't recognize myself anymore and the only thing I could rely on was the abusive amount of foundation to partially cover up this ugliness. I woke up every morning for the next three months, utterly depressed and in fear that this was permanent.Read More
All of these products above replaced all my prior beauty go-to's from Tarte to Nars. I didn't realize that the things I was using before was making my skin worse, attributing to the problem and not resolving it. As soon as I threw out all the other items and started using just these 6 items, my skin started getting better. Of course, in addition to the resurfx treatments. The key to clear skin is to truly watch what you're putting on, along with what you're putting into your body as well but that's for another time.Read More
Everything you find at Credo is clean, from the ingredients in the products they carry, to the transparency between the brands, them, and the consumers. I've been using the below combination for the last month and have seen the difference in my skin. Not only me, but my boyfriend, friends, and family have noticed the significant difference this switch has done for me. I threw out all my previous make-up, including my all-time favorite Tarte foundation, and once I stopped using those products, my skin started getting better. I was shocked and surprised what a difference a minor change in routine can make.Read More
