Advocating for a Better World 🌎🌿 Celebrity MUA in NYC & MIA 🗽+🏝
Enjoying the last few warm sunsets in the Pacific Northwest for the season. 🌄🌲🏔 Moving to Oregon renewed my appreciation for our beautiful planet. Seeing all the pristine sunsets here (like this one) made me think in greater depth how I can help preserve views like this - how can I personally advocate for environmental sustainability? Whenever I can, I try to make meals for @instalessmc and myself that last 3-4 days at a time. What does this have to do with environmental sustainability you're probably wondering? Conscious meal prepping can actually have a profound positive effect on the environment - here’s how: 1️⃣: Choosing to cut back on your meat consumption (by opting for alternatives like seafood or vegetarian options) results in significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions. Not only does it take a lot of land and water to raise animals for meat, that land was often previously natural ecosystems that had trapped carbon and when it was converted to raise animals it released that carbon. In addition, cows product methane and when methane is released into the atmosphere it is directly linked to climate change/global warming because just like CO2 methane traps heat within our atmosphere (and is an even stronger greenhouse gas than CO2!). 🥩 2️⃣: When you prep and portion your meals ahead of time, you prevent yourself from overeating and the likelihood of creating leftover food waste. Food waste more often than not ends up in landfills, where it has to break down without oxygen, causing it to (also) release methane emissions into the environment. Not to mention being such a waste of the resources and emissions that were created in producing the food! Limiting food waste is directly correlated with lowering your carbon footprint. 🌿 The things you learn to help save the environment 🤓🙌🏻 - What choices are you making in the kitchen or at the dinner table to help keep our planet healthier?

Best massage oil EVER 🤤💆🏻♂️💤 This @SpiceBeautyCo B&B oil can be used as a bath oil or body oil. I’ve tried it both ways now, and definitely can feel the difference when I have it used as a massage oil - it almost feels like your body is still getting massaged after your massage has finished - I love it! Has anyone else here tried out topical CBD products yet? #MassageOil #CBDBenefits #SpiceBeauty #BodyOil #BathOil #CBDWellness #CBDBeauty #CBDCommunity #CBDWorks #CBDSkincare
Who lit themselves better with this @PabloDesignsSF light? #SwipeToSee 😆🐕 This dimmable, cordless light (design name: Candel) has quickly become my new favorite - I love using it during sunset picnics, taking it with me ‘glamping’ for added mood light, and for using as a handheld flashlight at night 🌙😌✨ I just love how innovative and chic all the designer lighting is that @PabloDesignsSF creates, and how it ends up looking in my home. This is my fourth light from the brand, so clearly I’m a genuine fan. #PabloDesigns #DesignerLighting #Flashlight #TableLamp #CreamShibaInu
Cloudy days call for a sake martini 🍶🌸🍐- who else agrees? 😆 I made this one using equal parts @SakeOneOregon Moonstone Plum + Moonstone Asian Pear Craft Sake finished off with a splash of brandy. You can taste both of the refined (subtly sweet) notes of Asian pear + plum, however the brandy addition elevates this martini into something a little more complex and interesting. Special thanks to the brand for sending these delicious bottles among others my way - I can’t wait to try their limited edition Moonstone Guava Sake next 🤩 #SakeOne #MoonStoneSake #CraftSake #SakeCocktail #Saketini
Who else loves this gold ingot packaging? 🤩 Whenever you don’t feel like paying retail prices for luxury fragrances, I recommend checking out @LaBellePerfumes⚱️✨ Special thanks to the brand for sending this fragrance my way - I love it ☺️💛 #LaBellePerfumes #PacoRabanne #ShopLaBellePerfumes #GoldIngot #PerfumesForLess #DontPayRetail
As most of you who follow me already know, the man on my left is my husband. He is a Trauma Surgeon here in Portland, and absolutely loves what he does. Anyone in the medical field knows that surgeons have a very long and arduous journey prior to becoming an attending surgeon - including 5 years of residency and oftentimes 2+ years of fellowship. What a lot of people do not know however, is that residency programs often consist of working 100+ grueling hours/week with overtime often being overlooked. One thing that made my husband’s life a lot easier during his 5 years in surgical residency + 2 years in a trauma/critical care fellowship was being in a union. Historically, unions are the reason for a number of worker protections - including guaranteed minimum wage, employee-provided healthcare, risk-free sick days, and overtime pay. In the case of my husband, he also benefited from many other perks provided by his union - including legal council, educational expense reimbursement, and protections from being overworked. Through collective bargaining with employers, unions have played an essential role in balancing the power between employers and employees - ultimately leading to greater employee protection, safer working conditions, and a higher quality of life. For those reasons, I stand in support of unions in the US. Where do you stand on this matter? #TheUnionDifference #UnionProtection #WorkersRights Paid for by the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees
Who doesn’t love new skincare product releases? 🤩 #DermalogicaGiftedMe ⭐️↘️⬇️⭐️| Biolumin-C Gel Moisturizer |⭐️⬇️↙️⭐️ ⚪️ FROM THE BRAND: This @Dermalogica moisturizer (pictured here between the serum and eye serum) visibly brightens, firms, and evens skin tone. The super-charged, vitamin C-rich jelly formula penetrates the skin’s surface for immediate, glowing results with the help of active ingredients including: 🔘 Vitamin C Complex: Provides antioxidant protection and visibly brightens, firms, and fades dark spots. 🔘 Squalane & 5 Types of Hyaluronic Acid: Delivers long lasting hydration and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. 🔘 Phytic Acid and Pumpkin Enzymes: Gently exfoliates for a brighter-looking, softer, and more even-looking skin tone. ⚪️ MY THOUGHTS: Many vitamin C products on the market are formulated with liquid plastic/silicone derivatives (like dimethicone), however these products are all formulated in a base of glycerin, squalane, and propanediol - which I love! I found all three products to absorb incredibly well + very quickly. When layered/more product is applied than recommended however, it leaves the skin feeling tacky (i.e. you will easily be able to tell if too much product has been applied). Even though the brand recommends this for dry skin (among other skin types), I believe it is best-suited for those with a more oily/combination skin type, as it did not personally provide enough hydration for me (which usually is the case with every gel product I try, so I was not surprised that this was also the case with these ones). Since I have more dry/sensitive skin, I prefer using these in the morning due to their fast-absorbing + ultra-light feeling on the skin qualities, however opt for a richer/heavier moisturizer + eye cream at night. #HydrateBrighter #OctolyFamily
My (objectively unhealthy) breakfast usually consists of a triple espresso over ice topped off with cold brew 🤷🏻♂️⚡️😅 If I’m feeling extra spicy, I’ll even throw in a glass of champagne lightly misted with fresh grapefruit juice on top - just keeping it real my friends 😆🥂 Obviously, espresso and champagne is by no means considered a ‘healthy, balanced diet’ - so I’ve been on the hunt for something to add with more nutritional value to my daily morning routine. As you can see by this very advertorial-looking set of images, I found @Soylent - a plant-based beverage formulated with 30g of protein, 0g of sugar, and 39 essential vitamins/nutrients. What makes this even better? It actually tastes delicious 🤤 This healthy beverage also makes for a great pre or post-workout drink, and also doubles as a tasty coffee creamer - who knew ☕️🤩✨ Special thanks to @Soylent & @StackInfluence for sending a few packs of these my way! #SoylentPartner #HealthyAlternatives #ProteinShakes
Playing with drones 🛸🌲🕹 While glamping at @GetAwayHouse 2 hours outside of PDX, I tested out this new X500 drone I got from @SYMAToy 🤓🎮 This was my first time ever flying a drone - it was pretty fun! The image + video resolution on this model records at 1080P when shooting content via phone, however with a TF card, you can take images in 4K 😎. If you’re new to the world of drones like I am + are looking for a fun device to practice with before splurging on a professional-grade drone (that is equipped to shoot content at a higher resolution), this is an incredible choice to consider. For the price point, this drone is a steal, plus the reviews speak for themselves. This makes a great gift for teens as well and adults.
