From music industry life, to #MomLife. I'm all about documenting my adventures in modern motherhood, while running an award-winning music blog (Grimy Goods). I had no idea my public leap into motherhood would launch a new brand and blog, but it did. So here I am, sharing scenes from my family's life through video, photography and #RealTalk. We love music, travel, camping, and exploring our vibrant city of Los Angeles.

Self-Care for the Holidays with these Must-Have Skincare Stocking Stuffers
Tis the season for wrapping presents and stuffing stockings. Y’all know how much I love self-care and clean beauty, so this year I’m sharing with you my favorite skincare stocking stuffers (with the hopes that my husband gets me one of every item!). All these little holiday gifts are travel-sized and will fit perfectly in your carry-on bag, in addition to a standard Christmas stocking.
With a focus on clean beauty skincare, check out all the delicious delights below. They smell and feel divine, and some even taste good.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a lip gloss kinda gal! Shiny and sweet, does it for me. Beatycounter’s new Jellies are all about that holiday shimmer. These little lip glosses come in 5 colorful flavors:, Caramel, Peppermint, Sorbet, and Honey.
Hands down, the best aluminum-free, clean, deodorants. Drop them individually in a stocking or wrap it up! I absolutely love Native’s travel-sized deodorant sticks. I always have one in my purse and one in Victoria’s stroller. Native’s Travel Sample Pack features their most popular scents (Eucalyptus & Mint, Charcoal, Coconut & Vanilla, Lavender & Rose, and Cucumber & Mint).
LATHER’s facial mist is heavenly! I like to use it in the morning, sometimes in place of my toner, and I almost always use it as mid-day refresher. It’s seriously the most lovely scent and gives you that fresh glow!
Got some aches and pains? Don’t worry, Canyon Collection has got you! Their 200mg pure CBD healing salve is the bees knees. I used this stuff so much during that first postpartum year. And now with a heavy toddler –climbing, pulling and jumping all over us — this pocket-sized healing balm is a must in our household.
We have this little stick permanently packed in our camping travel toiletries bag. Nothing feels better than rolling Oars + Alps’ Wake Up Eye Stick over puffy, dry eyes; because let’s be real, ain’t nobody getting sleep when you’re sharing an air mattress in a tent with your toddler and husband!

Don’t you just hate blemishes? Whether stress, PMS or just a sweaty day — poof — zits be gone! This clear little patch help minimize those pesky zits until they’re gone, baby gone. Great for travel in addition to your at-home beauty cabinet.
If you’re sensitive to air quality, dryness, allergies, always have clogged sinuses, etc. — you need to get yo’ self some ION * Sinus. Formerly branded as Restore, this nasal spray is seriously some ground-breaking sh*t! I’m so sensitive to environmental irritants and this magical rinse is an absolute game-changer. All-natural, soil-derived — it promotes overall sinus health at a micro level! I honestly can’t recommend this enough. I wish I knew about it during my many Coachella days! It would have saved me a few bloody noses!
Got dark eye circles? So do I friend, so, do, I … You need to get yourself some Celestial Black Diamond Eye Mask by 111SKIN. Not only does this stuff feel good (especially after a night of no sleep), but it has a small amount of retinol to retexture skin without irritation, and it’s goth AF. Pair this with 111SKIN’s Rose Gold Brightening Facial Mask and you’re straight golden.
Gifts for Him: Treat Yo’ Man to Some Skincare & Beauty Lovin’
My husband’s skin used to be dull, dry and seriously starting to look crocodile-y. Not a turn on! I begged and begged him to start taking care of his skin. To at least use a daily SPF! He was stubborn …
