Summer Beauty On The Go with CVS

Now that summer is officially here, I’m so excited to dust off some old favorite beauty products, and add a few new ones into my summer beauty routine! We actually are off on vacation right now, which meant stopping by my local CVS Pharmacy to replenish my sun care products before we left. The last thing I want to do on vacation is run out of sunscreen and get burnt!

As you might know, sun safety is incredibly important to me. I had a mole scare a few years ago that had me panicking, and it reminded me just how important my body and my skin is. As much as I love a good makeup product, one that also has skincare and sun care benefits is even better!

Summer Beauty On the Go

That’s where my friends at CVS Pharmacy really come in. I’m partnering with them to share my summer beauty routine that’s perfect for traveling, or even for everyday! It’s no muss, no fuss and will keep you having fun on your trip without sacrificing your skin’s health. The goal of each product I picked up was to make an impact; it had to be simple to use and apply, protect my skin, or be multi-purpose. Or some combination of all three, which most of these are! If you’d like to see the products I selected, how I chose them, and what they look like on, then just keep reading!

What I Wish I Knew About Skincare in my Early 20s

Skincare is one of those things that I didn’t take seriously until I saw early signs of aging on my skin. In my teens, I was so focused on battling breakouts that caring for my skin’s future wasn’t my priority. Instead, I was busy throwing anything and everything that promised to stop breakouts at my face, drying it out beyond belief and setting the stage for fine lines and wrinkles.

In my early 20s, my skin changed and fighting breakouts were no longer a priority. My skin cleared quite a lot, and by my mid-20s, I saw the first signs of aging. Very fine lines around my eyes and on my forehead made their appearance, and I began to wish I knew the importance of anti-aging products before I ever saw the effects!

What to Pack for a Spring Holiday

Pretty sure that Memorial Day Weekend snuck up on me. How it already the end of May?! For me, it traditionally marks the end of spring and the start of summer here in the Pacific Northwest. And as soon as the temperatures bumped up a few notches here, the first thing I wanted to do was go shopping for all the summer things! Give me all the cute hats, swimsuits, cover-ups, and sunglasses. Add a dash of sunscreen, a cute beach bag, and a good book to read, and I’m set.

What to Pack for Memorial Day Vacation // Hello Rigby Seattle Fashion Blog Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Fred Meyer. Thanks so much for supporting the brands that support this blog! All opinions are my own. :)

Fortunately, Fred Meyer has all the essentials that I was looking for. They’re kind of my go-to place for anything; they’ve got groceries, clothing, housewares… pretty much everything you need to keep your life running smoothly. It’s kind of perfect to have a one-stop shop, especially when you’ve got a bit holiday weekend coming up and you kind of forgot about it. ;)

With that said, today I’ll be sharing some of my essentials that I found while shopping with a holiday trip in mind! But really, these would be perfect whether you’re planning a staycation or are flying 1,000 miles away!

Short Hair, Don’t Care

I’ve had long hair for as long as I can remember. There have really only been two times in my life when I opted to cut it; once when I was feeling adventurous in middle school, and another time in college after I had ruined my hair color with boxed dye. There was no saving it, so I just kept having my hair cut until it was all gone.

I’ve had some traumatic hair experiences too. Like the boxed dye nightmare I mentioned, I was scared to color my hair for awhile after that. Who knew if you had a red base, going darker could be so challenging?! I sure didn’t! Or that Sun In really isn’t such a great idea (seriously, all middle school girls need to be warned!). Or that time I had my hair done for prom and it turned out awful and took 2 hours longer than anticipated, meaning I missed group photos with my friends. Not traumatic at all. ;)

What wasn’t traumatic was cutting my hair short a couple weeks back at Gene Juarez. I honestly didn’t plan out what I wanted much. A few hours prior, when Googling “round face haircuts” and “heart-shaped face haircuts” I found a couple of cute looks on Google Image Search, sent them to Dave, and decided to show my hair stylist and see what she thought. If I had thought about it too much, I probably would have chickened out.

The One Thing that Transformed My Skin This Spring

It’s no secret that I’ve struggled with dry skin. Some people get patches on their hands or face during winter that clear when the weather gets warmer, and some people, like me, suffer off and on all year long with itchy, tight, dry skin on their face and other places on their body. Not only do I suffer from dry skin, but I have sensitive skin and am prone to patches of eczema. The struggle is real.

How to Combat Dry Skin

I sound like a real winner, don’t I?! ;) While it may seem like my skin looks bad, it usually doesn’t. For me, my dry skin is more of a sensation; I often feel itchiness and notice flakiness when scratched that is enough to drive anyone a little bit crazy. All this to say, this spring I finally found a product that transformed my dry skin, and I can’t wait to share more about the transformation I’ve seen over the past three months of using the Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer!
