About Me

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog! My name is Marilyn, I am a 22 year old Floridian, majoring in Psychology and International Affairs, trying to navigate through all of my ambitions and guide them into reality. My goals for this blog is to create a safe space for reflection and motivational writing. Ideally, I would like to parse this blog into two halves: one in which I write about my interests and thoughts on areas of social justice and another where I explore conscious consumer behavior and positive self care habits. I enjoy taking care of myself (doesn’t everybody?) but I understand as a college student that may oftentimes fall to the wayside. This blog will serve as a hobby and a means for keeping me accountable and avoiding burn out. HUGE DISCLAIMER: I enjoy make up! And I may talk quite a bit about it so get excited. I also recognize that the cosmetics industry has been associated with damaging narratives such as animal cruelty, cultural insensitivity, negative self perceptions, and irresponsible business practices so I plan on exploring, and challenging, that side of things as well. I’m not your average beauty blogger! Hope you stay a while with me and see this blog grow!

♥ Personal Beauty Info! ♥

  • I have naturally straight brown hair. I do not usually straighten or curl it, but I’m willing to experiment!
  • I have combination acne prone skin with some scarring and usually wear light/medium foundation.
  • It would be unfair for me to claim that all the products I use are 100% cruelty free or vegan. A big part of this blog is about progressing as a socially responsible consumer.
  • My favorite products to experiment with are blush & lip colors.
