Complete Guide To Instagram Hashtags

Today we are talking about something very important when it comes to maximizing your reach and growing on Instagram: HASHTAGS.

Let’s start at the beginning.

What are hashtags? Hashtags are keywords that Instagram lets users search for. Photos tagged with these keywords will show up when searched.

Why are hashtags important? Hashtags are so important because they give your content the opportunity to be seen by people who aren’t already following you.

The Perfect On-The-Go Snack | Featuring Foster Farms

Not sure if you guys have noticed lately but I have definitely upped my workouts since the new year! I have actually been loving going to my spin classes and hot yoga classes lately. Working out more frequently has definitely boosted my mood, energy and overall happiness. Something that I have found to be super important before a workout is what I choose to eat beforehand. That’s where Foster Farms Bold Bites come in. I am so serious when I say that they are my favorite on-the-go snack before a workout.

5 Reasons I'm Obsessed With Grapefruit Lately

I used to love grapefruit but for some reason I eventually just stopped eating it. Well, I saw it in the grocery store the other day (does anyone else feel like grapefruit is hidden?? Like I forget it exists bc you really have to look for it in the produce section!) and decided to grab a couple.

Fast forward to a few days ago when I was feeling a cold coming on… I know grapefruit is a good source of vitamin c so I literally just sat down and ate an entire grapefruit. First of all, it tasted really good and second of all, I felt DANG HEALTHY afterwards.

10 EASY Ways To Have The Coziest Home For The Holidays

Can you believe it’s already almost Christmas?? This is for sure my favorite time of the year, I love decking our house out for the holidays. It just gives such cozy and warm vibes, and it doesn’t have to be expensive or hard to do at all.

Of course you may have plenty of Christmas decoration boxes already ready to go in the garage (same) but there’s also a few affordable and quick things that I like to pick up each year to cozy up the place and get us in the holiday spirit.

My Holy Grail Micellar Water | Featuring Garnier

Today I am going to share one of my holy grail skincare products with you all! I heard about micellar water for the first time almost a year ago, and it immediately sounded amazing. Micellar water acts as a magnet capturing and lifting away dirt, oil and makeup from your skin without any harsh rubbing, so really what’s not to like? However, I was always a little nervous to try it out because I have really sensitive skin and don’t like to risk having any bad reactions.

Nightly Skincare Routine for Acne-Prone Skin | Featuring Alba Botanica

Happy October everyone! I’m SO happy it’s finally starting to feel (a little) like fall here in Phoenix. It’s been cooler and cloudy, we’ve even had some thunderstorms here and there. I know some of you probably think I’m crazy for loving this type of weather, but we do not get it often enough here in Phoenix so I am livin for it.

Today’s blog post is all about my current nightly skincare routine! I’m so excited to share this post with you all because honestly, just about a month ago I was in no position to share a skincare routine of any kind (my skin was for sure struggling).

5 Most Instagrammable Places In Oahu

Our recent trip to Oahu was a complete DREAM. It was sad to come back but it's been nice getting back into a routine at home. I always spend way too much money and eat way too much food on vacation (anyone else?!), so it'll probably be good for us to be home for a bit. 

Traveling is so addicting though, ever since we landed back in Phoenix I can't stop thinking about where to next?! I convinced Mihran that we need to cross Paris off our list SOON so we're thinking February!!

It was so fun to get creative and capture some cute photos while we were in Oahu. I'm really exciting to share some of our favorite spots with you guys. Obviously there's hundreds of cute spots in Oahu but these are really just my top five that you should not miss!

My Latest Obsession | Featuring CaseApp

I’m so excited to share my latest obsession with you guys: my matching phone case and laptop skin from CaseApp.

CaseApp lets you make custom phone cases and laptop skins, or choose from their pre-made designs. I ended up ordering their Sweet Lemons design, but it was a hard choice!! They have SO many cute ones to choose from.

10 SheIn Finds To Add To Your Closet

I love high quality investment pieces as much as the next girl. In fact, over the past few months I’ve shopped at Nordstrom and Free People a few more times than I’d like to admit. I love buying staples that will last me a long time that I can wear over and over again.

HOWEVER… sometimes you just want to add some new special pieces to fill out your closet for the season without breaking the bank. We’re headed to Hawaii next week and I really just wanted to pack my suitcase full of new and cute outfits. But buying an entirely new wardrobe for vacation is just not cost effective. That’s why I LOVE SheIn.

Best At Home Teeth Whitening + GIVEAWAY | Featuring Smile Brilliant

I’ve always struggled with feeling self-conscious about my teeth. I have tried to so many things through the years to whiten my teeth at home such as whitening strips, charcoal whitening powder and whitening mouthwash. Each time I try one of these new things, I rationalize spending the money and get excited about the possibility of whiter teeth, just to be disappointed with little to no results.

Well, I’m so excited to share this blog post with you all because I have FINALLY found what works: Smile Brilliant. The Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening System is a customized at-home teeth whitening process that honestly does it all.

3 Steps To Naturally Thicker Brows

As we all know, back in the day it was cool to have pencil thin eyebrows and well, lots of us are still recovering from this sad trend. For a while now the new trend has been to have the opposite: big thick, healthy brows, AND I AM HERE FOR THIS TREND. I love bushy eyebrows, the thicker the BETTER.

However, I’m not a fan of the fake drawn on look because I want my brows to look good all the time, even without makeup!! So because of this, I’m always working to grow out my eyebrows and I thought it was finally time to share my tricks.

Hawaii Packing Guide

Hiiii guys! This blog post is being uploaded today in honor of our trip to Hawaii that is exactly 1 month away! We went to Honolulu for our honeymoon a couple of years ago and completely fell in love with everything about it. We have been DYING to go back ever since! A couple of months ago we finally got around to booking our trip back. We’re even going back to the exact same resort. I'm so excited!!!

Honestly, this packing guide is relevant for almost ANY vacation this summer. It's modeled after my own packing essentials for Hawaii, but everything listed is totally universal for any warm summer getaway.

Keto Cheesecake Cupcakes | Recipe

I’m so excited to share this recipe! These cheesecakes are the BEST Keto dessert I’ve had so far. They taste just like regular cheesecake except they won’t kick you out of ketosis! Typically, I’m not a huge fan of baking things from scratch (it’s just so time consuming), but this recipe is EASY and totally worth it.

7 Days Of The Keto Diet | What You Need To Know

In case you didn’t see my single Instagram story last week (the one where I rationalized eating 2 Sprinkles cupcakes before bed since we were starting Keto the next day), Mihran and I decided to start keto!

It was on a total whim, I happened across one of my favorite bloggers on Instagram talking about how much they love it and I was like okay, let’s start tomorrow. I didn’t even know much about it, except for the fact that I knew a few family and friends that did it/were on it. And guess whattttt, we LOVE IT.
