I hate to be a negative nancy, but let's be real. Although summer is awesome, it can wreak havoc on your skin if you're not careful.
So while I'm a huge advocate for minimal skincare rituals, I'd be doing you a disservice not to point out the unique ways that summer's sun and heat can make bad things happen to your skin and what to do to keep everything under control.
5 Bad Things That Happen to your Skin in the Summer and how to keep it in check.
You'll glow. Literally.

Today is Father's Day. Since there is no one person that has had more influence on my business and my career than my father, I felt today would be a great day to write a bit about some of the things that I’ve learned from him over the years.

In my early twenties, I was very lost on what I wanted to do post college. I was studying new media design (a catch-all term for everything graphic, web and motion design related) but I wasn’t thrilled about working in the industry. It just didn’t feel like my calling. I spoke to my father who told me I needed to figure out what I wanted my life to look like. Where did I want to live? What should my days be like? Did I want to work at a design agency or in house creative division in corporate America? Maybe what I wanted was something else entirely? What was it?
