It’s been a few months since I sat here and drafted a blog post. I’ll be very transparent and sincere — I fell out of love with blogging, particularly blogging about common and continuous topics that seem to bombard everyone’s feed all the time. I began investing my energy into different things that were actually fulfilling me with passion and creativity. I began to question everything I’ve ever published and felt almost a bit self-centered at one point. Truth is, talking about my makeup routine or my current hair products was never the reason I brought this platform into fruition.

LTC was always meant to serve as a platform to inspire women of all sizes to love themselves truly as they are, to showcase that style has no limits. And the community, although small but real, that’s stuck by me.. is proof my message has transpired. In an industry like fashion & beauty that can sometimes seem so superficial, I want to reiterate there’s art form behind it.

After taking this break, I’ve come full circle with the decision to continue blogging and sharing more of this. A new tone, new topics. Pushing buttons, in hopes to strike an intellectual conversation with you all, or shit have a laugh with me. I’m back, just different and re-inspired.

3 Cruelty Free Vegan Beauty Brands I Discovered on Instagram

Indulging in a new beauty brand has always felt a bit skeptical for me, maybe because I’ve dealt with sensitive skin issues all my life — you never really know what to expect. Social media, particularly Instagram, shifted the perspective of my old ways to go ahead and dive into trying new brands. As a style & beauty content creator, I spend (too much) time searching for new innovative designers & natural beauty brands to discover.

Because most brands share product information on their social platforms, this allows us to easily study useful details, engagement & authenticity of their products.


How I Am Embracing My Oily Skin for Summer

Dewy Summer Makeup Routine for Oily Skin

Everything I’m touching base on in today’s post is the complete opposite of what my usual makeup routine consisted of. Naturally, I have oily skin and setting my entire face with powder was a no-brainer — until this summer. After vacationing in a humid climate in the month of June and being that I live in humid-muggy Miami, I decided early on to embrace the oiliness without prepping my skin with primer or setting my makeup with powder. I know, crazy right? How dare I? Turns out actually, the dewy look grew on me rather quickly.

As my use of natural-based beauty products expands, my skin definitely shows great appreciation for it. Hyper-pigmentation is under control, pores have tightened, and the texture on my face has diminished.

Since the start of summer I’ve indulged in a new skincare method known as oil cleansing, with the help of an invigorating jojoba & argan oil infused product that breaks down impurities and magically removes all makeup (even waterproof). During a recent Instagram Live session I thoroughly demonstrated my current cleanse & repair routine so today I’m bringing the details to the blog.
