Is Tula Skincare Really Worth It?

Alright ya'll it's finally time to speak my truth about Tula Skincare. I'm sure you've heard about it before, basically every influencer seems to plug it on Instagram. Well, I set out to purchase the line myself so I could really see if it's worth the hype. I wanted to give it a fair shot on my own regardless of how many times I was told it was great.

Ashley's Dreamy Vanity

I cannot tell you how long I have wanted my vanity to look like this. I used an antique vanity for the longest time and while it served its purpose and was pretty it wasn't exactly what I wanted.

There is a little place in Dover called Earth's Harvest Kitchen and Juicery, which is amazing so check it out if you haven't been. They have my all-time favorite smoothie called the "Smooth Operator" so I decided to make my very own version of it. It's pretty close, not exact but gives me my fix. Ingredients: Justin's Peanut Butter Chameleon Cold Brew Flaxseed Chocolate Protein Powder Almond Milk (not pictured) Frozen Banana A handful...
