Guest Post | Beauty Resolutions with Kaitlyn

1

Hi everyone! I’m Kaitlyn from Kaitlyn Elisabeth Beauty and am so excited to be guest posting on Nicole About Town all thanks to the Canadian Beauty Bloggers Network!

The theme of the guest posts this month is Beauty Resolutions. While I would love to make my resolution to buy less, that’s just not feasible for me unless I’m on a strict Spending Ban. Instead, I am resolving to be more diligent with my skincare routine.

I have a pretty solid skincare routine for dry skin and want to walk you through it – what I use, why I use them and some alternatives that I may swap out.   Continue Reading
