Spring Skincare



L and I have posted a lot about skincare: Here, here, and here! She's more of the product junkie and I like to stick with what I know. Over the years I've perfected my skincare regimen to one that is simple, uses products that are affordable, and works with skin that is SUPER sensitive. These products have been with me through thick and thin and are light enough for Spring and Summer season, but also incorporate thicker creams for Fall and Winter. Intrigued? Click for more!

Turtle and Leaf's Packing Tips for Warmer Weather



Ahh, I feel revived and refreshed from my tropical vacation. Thank you for hanging in there Turtle and Leafers! Although I'm missing pina coladas being served to me every afternoon, the sound of the ocean waves in my back yard, and family, it's good to be back in my own bed and, well back in my own bed. Seriously, there is nothing like home! Anyways, I wanted to share my packing tips for warmer weather. I think I've gotten it down to an art because it literally took me 15 minutes compared to my hour in front of my closet hemming and hawing over what to bring. Interested?

Headed for Warmer Weather


Good morning Turtle and Leafers! How was your weekend? I spend mine jetting off to Napa up in Northern Cali for a quick trip for a dear friend's birthday! Although we spend less than 72 hours there it was fun, jam-packed and just what I needed to hold me over till my official vacation this upcoming week! I'll be headed to tropical weather so I've been eyeing my closet and L's in search of pieces that will be easy to wear from the beach to the zipline! Check out what my picks below!

About Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone



After graduating from college I decided to go big or go home. I was faced with the decision to find a full-time job like a big girl or apply to teach English in Japan..for a year...something I had never even thought of before. With the urging of my best friend and the right circumstances I applied and got in. I considered myself changed when I returned from a year abroad. Among other things I was more self-confident, self-aware, and independent. I thought, "well if I can survive a year abroad then I can survive anything." This still holds true today, however there is a caveat to this.
