How to Go Gluten Free for a Week

How to Go Gluten Free for a Week

// not sponsored, affiliate links included

I get asked a lot in real life how I’m gluten free 100% of the time. I have a pretty severe gluten sensitivity so I just stay away from it all together. Basically, when I eat gluten, my stomach bloats and gets upset for about six inches and doesn’t go away for about 4-6 hours post eating. After learning about all the other food allergies I had, I decided to drastically change my diet and it’s been for the better. My body has just felt better by cutting out all of the foods that were disrupting it and while avoiding these foods isn’t for everyone, I definitely recommend giving it a try to see if it’s something you didn’t know you were struggling with, like me! Here’s what I eat in a week so you can see how easy and yummy it is to be gluten-free!

How to Start a Beauty Blog and Make Money

After blogging for 5+ years I get asked quite a bit, both online and offline, how someone can start their own beauty blog. Now I should add that no one should start blogging with the idea to make money from it – this is never a good way to turn a hobby into a business because it will be difficult to seem genuine and sincere if you’ve only got your eyes on the dollar signs. That being said, it is possible to turn a profit from beauty blogging and I’m going to show you how in five easy steps! So here’s how to start a beauty blog and make money, with my in depth look behind my own blog:

DIY Gold and Faux Marble Nightstand

So this is one of my coolest projects ever but…also one of my biggest fails! Let’s just say, spray paint + a windy day in Michigan does not equal a totally successful project! Since I became addicted to pinning things on Pinterest daily, I’ve naturally become obsessed with the white marble and gold lifestyle I like to pretend I have through my home decor boards so I decided that I simply had to have a faux marble nightstand in my new apartment. This diy is super quick and easy but best of all it’s very budget friendly!

Klairs Review: Concealer and BB Cream

Klairs Review: Concealer and BB Cream

One of the most exciting parts of being a blogger is having the excuse to try out all kinds of makeup and skincare! Well, I would still probably try out all this makeup but at least the beauty blogger part makes my hoarding seem less bad. Anyway, I just had the opportunity to try out a new-to-me Asian beauty line through Wishtrend called Klairs – Asian beauty routines always fascinate me because I love the high focus they put on skincare. Typical beauty routines can have as many as 8 or 9 steps for perfect the skin and it’s so different from routines here in the US (if you even have one, unlike me!). I got to try the Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream and the Creamy & Natural Fit Concealer and they are great additions to my makeup collection!
