My Spring Routine: The Best Beauty Products for a Natural Glow

Spring is the perfect time to highlight natural beauty, or at least that’s what I’ve heard. I like wearing less makeup in the warmer months, and I try to embrace more of a natural glow. I’ve also really been trying to amp up my skincare, which is a losing battle when you’re a University student with little to no expendable income. Good quality products can be expensive, but investing in products that actually work is really important. The following products have become staples in my morning routine, and I’d wholeheartedly recommend them if you want a fresh faced glow!

Nude Lipsticks for Fair Skin

Pale Girl Diaries: Best Nude Lipsticks for Fair Skin

Nude lipsticks are the little black dresses of the cosmetics world. Brown nudes, pink nudes, peachy nudes, whatever the undertone, nudes will always be in style in one form or another. As a girl with fair skin (really fair, I’m talking the lightest shade of foundation is still sometimes too dark for me) I always find it really difficult to find the perfect nude. I know I’m not the only one who looks at swatches of gorgeous nudes, buys one, and then tries it on only to find out it’s straight up coral on my skintone. Well friends, I come bearing good news: there are nudes out there for us pale girls. I’ve rounded up a few of my favourites to share with you. Swatches at the bottom of the list!

Verona Italy

Visiting Verona: Juliet’s Balcony and Other Must Sees

Verona is somewhere that I hadn’t planned to visit, but I’m so glad I did.  My boyfriend and I were staying in Bologna, and we had already seen everything we wanted to see, but still had another day booked there.

It’s absolutely beautiful there. Exactly what you imagine when you think of Italy. I wanted to share some things you should do while you’re there.

Workout Motivation and Workout Books

Workout Motivation and The Best Fitness books

It’s officially Spring in the northern hemisphere, and that usually triggers desires for beach bodies and smoothies. Personally, I’m not the girl who prescribes to the “New Year, New Me!” mantra that hits many people around January 1st, but as soon as the weather gets warmer, I’m motivated. Maybe it’s the reality of short sleeves being a necessary thing soon? Maybe it’s just the positivity that warmer weather brings. Whatever it is, I felt the need to get out of the unhealthy habits I’d fallen into over the past two months, and get some workout motivation. I wanted to share with you guys some things that work for me to get me motivated, and also give you a look at two books that really kicked my butt into gear (literally and figuratively) when it comes to fitness.
