Do you shave your face? Wait, what Landyn?! Yep, I asked it because I’ve been shaving my face for 2 years now. I’ll never go back to the peach fuzz days and I’m here to bust all those myths you’ve heard.
First things first, let me say this…I am NOT a beauty blogger. I'm just a girl trying to get by in the morning while adding a little glam here and there. So yes, I know that sometimes I may not be applying the eyeliner
I’m your girl for finding the perfect white tee, the mother of all under eye concealer and a dinner your kids will actually eat. And if there something I haven’t found, you’ll be there when I do.
