My name is Kareena Garg, and I am a rising fourth-year Psychobiology major at UCLA! I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago, and I really enjoy going to school in Los Angeles. LA is such a diverse city, and I have made many amazing memories with friends from all over the world. Additionally, I love having the opportunity to pursue my passions for medicine while exploring other aspects of health like mental, emotional, and social well-being. Through this blog and my experiences at UCLA, I have become a passionate advocate for mental health, and I hope to encourage myself and others to lead healthy lives. Outside of school, I am a huge foodie and love exploring new coffee shops and experimenting in the kitchen with different cuisines! While we will be discussing many beauty and wellness topics in this blog, my favorite beauty tips are quite simple: using old-fashioned Pond's Cold Cream to remove makeup and starting each day with a glass of warm lemon water!
My name is Soumya Ravi, and I recently graduated from UCLA in the class of 2021! Born and raised in Orange County, CA, it’s no surprise that my favorite foods include overpriced acai bowls and avocado toast. Don’t let these healthy-ish items fool you though, because I will probably also eat any dessert with dark chocolate in it. Moving to LA for school, though initially a novel experience, has allowed me to pursue both my career goal, as a future physician, and offered platforms like this blog to explore the realm of fashion and beauty. One of my passions is advocating for mental health, which I hope to continue to do through this blog. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis and piano as well as exploring new places in LA. While my beauty routine is probably pretty simplistic, my favorite beauty tip is that I like to apply a small amount of Argan Oil on damp hair so that damaging straighteners and curling irons don’t strip off the hair’s natural texture and luster.
