Donut Bar x Revenge Bakery – Interview With the World’s Best Donut Shop

When I first moved to San Diego, it became my mission to find the best food and coolest restaurants. I started following food blogs, Instagram accounts, Yelp & would keep an eye out for new restaurants popping up around our neighborhood. One of the first spots that hit my radar was Donut Bar. Everywhere I looked and everyone I talked to knew about Donut Bar & their infamous concoctions. The first 4 times I tried to visit their store, they were closed because they had sold out. Seriously! 4 times in a row! I started getting a little discouraged. But knew that if a donut shop was selling out of treats every day, it was worth the trek. Continue Reading

T-Shirt: Missguided Shorts: Blank NYC Sunglasses: Forever 21 (similar here) Shoes: Converse Bracelets: Shashi

Ahh growing up. It’s a double edged sword. You’re allowed to do whatever you want, but that also means you’re responsible for everything.

Even though I had a full time job at 16 and moved out at 17, there’s something a lot different about being in your 20s. It’s kind of like you have a realization that you have to get your shit together. In your mid and late 20s, you start scrambling because you realize you don’t have it together and look around and wonder how everyone else seems so composed. Continue Reading

Summer Skincare Guide

Erin Aschow Revenge Bakery Skincare Erin Aschow Revenge Bakery Skincare Tips Trophy Skinc at home Microdermabrasion Kit Erin Aschow Skincare Routine I get a lot of questions about my skincare routine, so I thought I’d start by sharing a few of my favorite products and tips. I’d like to preface this post with the fact that I DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT have perfect skin. It’s a struggle, I have adult acne, scars, hyper pigmentation & some fine lines.

I’m not even 30 yet! Continue Reading
