hi! i'm brooke. a 15 year old obsessed with pickles, photography and pretty much any type of dog. (did you notice that use of alliteration??@myenglishteacher) besides that, i'm also vegan + gluten free and have a very bad habit of not capitalizing anything i write. oops. in addition, i'm based in california :) .
in addition, i acquired a record player this christmas. luckily, a new vinyl shop opened up in my town. i went after school on friday and picked up a really cool record. there was also a beatles one there but it cost 135$!!!
youtube has been my best friend these last couple of months 😂. the amount of vegan youtubers i’ve watched is insane. here are some of my favs
the aaron family
the fairly local vegan
i also got some new makeup/ skincare items these last few months. i’ll start off with one of the more exciting ones
the james charles pallete & morphe 35 m palette. they’re the gems of my makeup collection right now :).
i also got a rose water face spray that is DIVINE.
along with that, i picked up some lip glosses from morphe.
i’ll just skip this awkward intro. i wanted to let you guys know that i have launched a brand new blog!! it’s going to be centered al around my vegan + gluten free journey. i’d love it if you went over and gave a follow!
in addition to that exciting news, i also wanted to let you know that i’m going to be posting on here once a week again!

hi! what’s up? today i’m going to be sharing some tips on how i manage to keep my skin clear (for the most part). before we get into this post, please remember that i’m not a dermatologist or anything like that.without further ado, let’s get into the post!believe it or not, packing on less makeup does a wonder for your skin. like all living things, your skin needs some time to breathe and by layering powders over it, your skin will get irritated. this summer i’ve managed to not wear anything heavy over my skin because, 1. i’m too lazy to even try, and 2. my skin feels so much better. since the beginning of the summer, i’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin.okay, i’ll admit it. i’m not the cleanest eater all the time. i like the occasional candy bar or bag of chips, but for the majority of time i try my best to not eat a ton of junk food. when you fill your body with artificial colors, sugars, and oils, it’s bound to react negatively. so if you’re looking for a quick way to help your skin out, cut back on the bad food.i know that you can’t exactly control how much stress you’re out under, but you can minimize it. find a way to eliminate the problem or to cope with it. when you stress, your body freaks out and causes your acne to go haywire. now that it’s summer, you finally have some time away from tests and stressful exams (unless you’re in summer school).this is one that i struggle with SO much. it’s just a really bad habit. when i’m bored, i touch my face. when i stress, i touch my face. it may seem hard to break out of this habit but i promise that when you do, it’ll be worth it. your hands carry millions of germs and bacteria and smearing it all over your face is a recipe for disaster.i hope you guys enjoyed this post and that it helped you out! like i said, i’m not an expert but from experience, these have helped.have a great day!
