we truly heart this: Pixi Peel & Polish

I don’t tend to change up my skincare--it really has to be an INCREDIBLE product for me to incorporate it into my regular facial routine. There are a few reasons for this: For over a decade, my cystic-acne ridden face was subjected to trial-and-error with countless products (total product burnout with both prescription and non-prescription strength). I’ve finally found a…

I Tried Microneedling (aka The Vampire Facial) – Would I Do It Again?

Those who know me well will not be surprised by this statement: I am adventurous. Honestly, I would probably try just about anything. Jumping out of a plane, eating horse...you know, those sorts of things. But when it comes to beauty treatments, I'm even MORE gung ho. Which is why when I was asked if I wanted to try microneedling,…

Hey Mister, Pixi has something new for you…

Years ago, I had an artist friend who lived in a giant, decrepit warehouse in downtown Baltimore.

I thought this was a little crazy…
