May the Force Be With You

Saturday, May 9, 2020

May 4th kicked off a Star Wars inspired shoot that’s resulted in me binging the entire series! We’re working our way through each, and I have a newfound appreciation for the characters and story telling that went into them. As a kid, I don’t think I could quite grasp the depth of different dilemmas and choices each character went through. Now, as an adult, I can empathize and understand more readily.

But can I just say....what the hell was Jar Jar Binks even necessary for? If that’s what the early 2000s deemed comedy relief, I’m throwing hands. Is anyone a fan of that character??

Personally I’m more drawn to mythical and fantasy over sci-fi, so Harry Potter and LOTR is more my speed, but I still love a good storyline, adventure, and strong female characters! Stepping into the role of Rey felt very empowering and I’d happily do it again.

Are you a fan of Star Wars?

Magic at Bruneau Sand Dunes

Thursday, May 7, 2020

One of my favorite nearby locations are the Bruneau Dunes. That’s right, did you know Idaho has sand dunes? It’s absolutely incredible, and It feels like we teleported to another planet every time!

I dragged Drake out here one morning, and after over a month of properly quarantining at home, I was dying for a little adventure. Luckily, this state park is close enough we didn’t have to stop anywhere for gas, and we had the whole place to just ourselves! Absolutely magical. What do you think of the images we created? I’ve been saving this dress specifically for this location. Anyone else do this?

 We’ve hit about 2 months of quarantine here in Idaho, and it definitely feels like a Black Mirror episode. How is everyone dealing with life lately?

3 Skincare Must Haves for Spring

Friday, April 24, 2020

Just because we’re all staying inside doesn’t mean you should neglect your skincare routine. If anything, now is the time to prepare your glow for the world to see! Here are some skincare products I’ve been using more lately and have noticed a huge difference already!

1. Ultrasonic Lifting and Exfoliating Wand

Before we can even get into the other products, I have to shout out this new tool. While I’ve invested in some quality skincare serums and lotions, what good will they do if my skin isn’t properly absorbing them? Introducing the Essia! This wand has made the biggest difference in my routine, and every time I use it my skin looks noticeably hydrated and glowy!

It comes with 3 modes - Exfoliate, Moisturize, and Lift. Using high-frequency, ultrasonic oscillation technology, this powerful tool can dislodge impurities from pores (yes, those pesky blackheads as well), help skin attract and absorb products, and stimulate facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!

If you’re looking for one of the best investments you can make for your skincare routine, use my discount “THE_DRAGONFRUIT20” for the entire site!

2. Tuel Moisture Deep Pore Cleansing Duo

I set this product aside after getting lash extensions since its an oil-based product, but now that I don’t have to worry about that, Ive been enjoying using this effective cleanser and toner duo! It’s gentle on my skin and effective at drawing out the dirt and makeup off my face. I use this when my skin gets dry (in spring and winter it gets so bad!). Plus it revives skin with antioxidants and vitamins. Overall, this is a cleansing system I’d say is worth the investment.

3. Tuel Clear It Blemish Control Gel

Anyone else feeling stressed out lately? If not, tell me your secrets! My stress has been reflecting on my face, and when all these annoying spots popped up I realized I didn’t have a specific product for acne! Of course I went to my favorite skincare brand - Tuel. After just a few uses of this blemish control gel, I noticed the zit healing process sped up! I know Tuel is pricey, but I fully stand behind this brand - both their ingredients, quality, and brand mission are on point!

What are some of your skincare favorites?

Slaying the #BlanketChallenge

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

Wrapped in blanket, cozy, quarantine chic

I’d like to ask the #PillowChallenge to step to the side. A new challenge has emerged and it is far more glamorous. Introducing...the #BlanketChallenge!

Who knew wearing nothing and just belting your blanket around your waist could make you feel so glam? I’m honestly shocked at how good this looks and may or may not reuse this for a future look.
Quarantine chic, am I right? Check out the BTS for this look on my Tik Tok account @the_dragonfruit!

Quarantine has unleashed a stream of creativity within so many people, and it is incredible to see. With the many obstacles it can prevent for typical content creation, myself and so many others have been finding new ways to achieve our visions. Including fun challenges like this.

Anybody else ready to strut their stuff in a blanket??
