Back to School/Work Bag Basics

Hello friends, and Happy Friday to you all. Today I’m super excited to share my rendition of a “back to school” video – essentials for your school/work bag! Now, I’m a “far beyond” graduate: the perpetual student. I’ve endured primary school, middle school, four years of high school, four years of college, four years of medical school, and I’m working on my last four years of residency training (only 1.8 more years to go, baby!). While I’m not going to show you my backpack full of Hello Kitty and lollipops, I can show you in the most practical sense what some great things to carry in your book bag are — and indeed, my new favorite way to lug it all around. I hope you enjoy!

Little Black Book of Bronzers

A few months ago (gulp) I had the privilege of being sent this awesome “Little Black Book of Bronzers” by Too Faced. The name is definitely a misnomer because it’s actually really, really large–but it’s so friggin’ amazing I just had to share it with you all. It contains their entire collection of bronzers –Read Post →
