This a series where I share snapshots from my daily life as captured through Instagram. If you’re new to the series and would like to catch up (or just missed a few along the way), click here for past posts. The following are an assortment of photos from the beginning of December.

    What products do you use on your hair?

      Hello! I only really use Moroccan oil on my hair when it’s wet, and perhaps a touch of hairspray when I curl it. Sometimes if I’ll do a sea salt spray if I want a more tousled look, but I really hardly use anything on my hair since I have it cut to work with my natural wavy texture.

      Do you use their shampoo and conditioner also?

      Yep—the generic kind from Costco :) However, I only wash my hair maybe every 3 days, and I brush it out every night before bed to distribute the natural oils.

    I had zero idea that Starbucks made steamed apple cider! This might have just made my day!

      Oh good! You must get some—they do Caramel Apple Cider, too, but I like mine plain. Sometimes cider is just the perfect beverage :)

    You look so good in red lipstick! I’ve been trying to be braver about wearing it in public too!

      Thank you, Lauren! The first time was REALLY SCARY! But when I wore it the second time (as shown above), I felt super confident and empowered by it. You can do it!!
