Recent Beauty Purchases – Hits and Misses

Birchbox x Rent the Runway Georgetown Launch Event Recap

Review: Elizabeth Arden SUPERSTART

In my last Elizabeth Arden skincare post, I mentioned how I have added SUPERSTART Skin Renewal Booster to my skincare routine. Since that post, every morning and evening I have used it under PREVAGE® Anti-Aging Daily Serum. The condition of your skin’s surface layer is directly linked to how healthy, radiant…
