Like most people, I’m OBSESSED with face masks! I have so many in my medicine cabinet and am always looking for new brands. That’s probably my favorite thing to shop for at Sephora- shopping for makeup on the other hand, is so overwhelming. I think I’m the only woman who thinks that way…ha!
I feel like face masks are like shoes- you can never have too many and there are different masks for different occasions, for different skin needs, etc. So I like to keep stocked up for any little skin need that might pop up- acne, dry skin, fine lines, blah blah. All the good stuff. My skin tends to be super complex- it’s dry, but oily, I have acne, and the wrinkles are becoming more apparent now that I’m in my 30’s. YAY for getting older… it’s so fun…
The ones below are my favorites that I SWEAR by and use regularly to keep my skin in check, but I also wanted to compile some others that I’ve had my eye on to try ASAP so they’re all linked below!
And if you’ve got a mask you like, share with my on Instagram! I’d love to know which masks I should add to my never ending list.
I’ve mentioned it a few times here and there, but if you don’t know, I’m the Senior Buyer of Accessories and Jewelry at Forever 21. That means, my team and I are responsible for the styles you see, and buy, in stores and online. It feels weird to put that in writing on my blog every time… I don’t know why, I guess it’s always been something I’ve kept super separate from Worship Worthy. But lately, when I’ve met people or people have asked what I do, they’ve been surprised and have encouraged me to share it a little bit more, so here we are!
Most people think that being a Buyer means that I basically shop for a living. And to an extent, you’d be right. But there is also so much more that goes into it. My job is SO much fun, but it’s also a lot of hard work. Essentially I work on a daily basis with vendors that provide us products, and they own factories overseas to produce the goods. They send me samples, or I develop samples with them, we the decide which items we are going to buy and take into stores and from there I am involved with what colors to buy, how many units we need, what the retail price should be, etc. So as much as I am working creatively with accessories, I’m also deep into Excel sheets, financial reports and analyzing data.
My job is incredibly fun, and I’m so thankful to be where I am. I literally dreamed of being a Buyer in the fashion industry since I was 12… yes, 12. Coming to California to live my dream still feels surreal. It’s a lot of hard work, but I’m so grateful.
I thought it would be fun to share the styles that I have bought for F21, that you can get your hands on RIGHT NOW! I have to admit, it’s crazy to see these styles live, and real. Makes me so happy to see them making others happy- and proud.
Without a doubt, the question I get asked the most is, “how did you grow your hair so long?”. Actually, most of the time it’s not a question it’s just “WOW, you have so much hair.” So I thought it was about time I put together a blog post on my tips and tricks to growing out and handling this crazy mane on a day to day basis. Ready?
I was on the fence about writing this post, honestly. I made notes in my phone of what I wanted to include, and then never actually sat down to write it because I kept talking myself out of it. Do people like to read these kinds of blogs? Would people be interested to hear my reflections of 2018 and my goals for 2019? I kept telling myself, probably not. But I woke up this morning at 8:00 and started looking at Instagram (a BAD habit I want to stop doing first thing in the morning… ugh) and I was watching Kathleen Barnes’ IG story and up popped her “Reflecting on 2018” blog post link and I swiped up.
I’ve been hearing about bluelight blocking glasses for a while now, and I’m finally giving them a try! Bluelight blocking glasses are supposed to help fight fatigue, digital eye strain, and to help fight restfulness. Staring at a computer at night can lead to trouble sleeping, according to some studies. I found this report on NyMag.com that kind of disputes these glasses altogether, but I do think they’re helping. Combined with limiting my screen time in general, I think I’ll see a major difference.
I wear reading glasses, normally, but they definitely don’t have the light blocking capabilities that these do. Plus, who doesn’t like a cute new accessory?
