WHAT BEAUTY SUPPLIES ARE HIDDEN INSIDE YOUR MEDICINE CABINET?

on my skincare regimen. Needless to say, I’m pretty obsessed with beauty and beauty supplies. And I don’t believe this is coming from an insecure standpoint. At least, this isn’t how it feels to me. I don’t hate getting older, and I’m not trying to erase my wrinkles (okay, well, maybe sorta, but in a natural, embracing kind of way).

This is another lifewithlilred inspired post, and I have to say, lilred moved me slightly out of my comfort zone for this one–which is why it’s a perfect Goddess Attainable topic.
