MY FIRST RETINOL SKIN COLLECTION BY OLAY

I am a retinol virgin no more! I finally decided to incorporate retinol into my daily skincare routine. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve started using this retinol skincare collection, and I wanted to share my thoughts. For those of you who aren’t familiar with retinol, it is a form of Vitamin A that is an anti-aging compound that helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles and skin discoloration by increasing the production of collagen in the skin. It acts as a skin exfoliant to help improve blemishes by preventing dead skin cells to clog pores. It also promotes cell turnover, stimulating the production of new blood vessels which helps even out skin tone and improves skin color. Its set apart from other skin ingredients because of its potency. I’ve been told by a few skin doctors that I don’t need to use retinol. I don’t have any dark or sun spots, pores or wrinkles (yet!), and my skin is pretty even and smooth. I know retinol can cause irritation and redness at first, and …

MY GUIDE TO THE AMALFI COAST

I’ve been to Italy so many times that I might as well be an honorary Italian at this point lol. I am definitely an Amalfi Coast veteran by now- I have been going a few times a year since 2015, and it is my happy place and without a doubt my favorite place in the world. I get tons of questions about the Amalfi Coast, so instead of answering each question individually I thought it would be best to write a blog post with all the info in one place! I will share logistics in getting from one place to another on the coast, as well as recommendations on where to stay, eat, and what to do. BUT FIRST, if you want to check out my older posts from the Amalfi Coast from 2015/2016, check them out here: (and don’t judge, I’ve come a long way since these posts haha.  Sometimes  I want to update older posts to better format them because they look super amateur but I kind of like seeing my progression and …

VIDEO: Il BORRO RESORT TUSCANY x JETSETTER.COM

My stay at Il Borro Resort in Tuscany with Jetsetter! I’ve stayed at this property a few times and it’s one of my favorite places in the world- owned by the Salvatore Ferragamo family. I learn about wine making, cook pizza and pasta, ride a horse through a Tuscan vineyard and more! Thought I’d share this video on my personal channel. Make sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel for more videos. So many more coming! Watch my experience at Il Borro here!

NAMALE RESORT & SPA- SAVUSAVU, FIJI

In the luxury vacation world, most people hear “all-inclusive” and steer clear. They’re not for everyone and it has unfortunately acquired somewhat of a bad stereotype- crowded commercial resorts, packed swimming pools, and mediocre food. I am here to tell you it’s not always the case and that there are exceptions to this “rule”.  I discovered an all-inclusive gem! Namale Resort & Spa is set amidst over 500 acres of lush tropical land on Fiji’s Northern Island of Vanua Levu in Savusavu. This adult-only boutique hotel redefines the meaning of all-inclusive in a luxurious intimate setting. All-inclusives do have its advantages- it’s a package deal and you know what you’re getting yourself into beforehand cost-wise, giving you less to think about while you’re on vacation (who wants to worry about money in paradise!) Namale allows you to customize your vacation with different packages and activities with all food and drink included, still giving you the option to add special activities on after you get there. Namale is a beautiful 5-star property offering 19 luxury villas …

MY DAILY SKINCARE ROUTINE VIDEO

I finally shot a daily skincare routine video tutorial! My entire life I had the most basic routine- wash my face with warm water and made sure to always take off my makeup every night before bed with a makeup remover wipe. Now I have a more extensive routine (but still quick!), and I’ve added products I truly trust that I have been using for the past few years. Feel free to message me with any questions, and hope you find this video helpful & informative. xx – Subscribe to my Youtube for more videos! Shot and edited by Solmaz Saberi | @SolmazSaberi

COOK ISLANDS VLOG

I’ve sat on this for awhile. It’s been a year and a half since my trip to Cook Islands! I kind of half assed doing a VLOG- but since I’m going again for the 2nd time next month I thought I’d slap something together before my trip there, and at least put this out there. I really want to start doing more Youtube content even if the videos aren’t amazing. I  want to always be uploading consistent and constant content for you guys, so it would mean so much if you would support and subscribe to my channel! It will help motivate me to release more video content and all the tutorials you ask for! Anyway, enjoy this VLOG from the beautiful Cook Islands! And you can read my original blog post from Cook Islands  here. xx-Nicole
