I spent the day in downtown LA on Saturday with one of my best friends. She took me to all the places she thought would remind me of New York. So the cutest places ever. If you didn’t know, I have a slight obsession with New York. I will have more pictures from our day tomorrow for you.
Here is what I was wearing. The colors remind me of summer, which makes me very happy. Enjoy your Monday everyone! …or try to all least!
Babe Scrubs : These scrubs are awesome. After using them in the shower you will be left with the softest skin. They have Green Tea, Coffee, and Pink Salt (the coffee one is amazing in the morning). They are also organic and 100% natural! Funk Butter : Finally a natural deodorant that works for me! I have been going through deodorants like crazy lately. Some haven’t been working like they use to. I can always count on this one to keep me dry and smelling nice. It comes in a paste formula, so you have to get used to that. 100% Pure Cream Blush in Posey : This is crazy pigmented. It feels so lightweight on your skin and gives a beautiful pop of coral pink. You can wear it alone for a dewy look, or layer on a powder blush for more depth and staying power. I like these two baby pink blushes on top because they give a beautiful dimension to the skin. ( Becca Blush in Gypsy & Larenim Blush in Angel ) Butter London Nail Foundation : I have been waiting for something like this to come into my life! This polish creates the perfect canvas to any nail polish. It has a creamy nude, matte finish. Alterna Plumping Strand Expand : If you are craving some volume in your life you have to try this. It is incredibly hydrating and nourishing too which I love. It has a nice clean scent and comes out like a lotion. I use after I shower and it will give you some gorgeous locks!
I have been testing out these Shea Terra Organics products for the last few weeks and am totally impressed. Since I have tried so many skin care brands, I have pretty high standards. These products have done such great things to my skin. I am really impressed with how pure and natural the ingredients are, the packaging and how well they work. I would definitely suggest checking this line out if you are in the need of some new body/skin care products, or if you feel like shopping!
Rose Hips Black Soap Facial Wash: This cleanser is a rich black/brown color and smells like a combination of roses and soap. After using this for just a few days I noticed my blackheads were practically gone, and my skin looked noticeably tighter. You can also leave it on your face for 5-10 minutes if you want deeper treatment. This has quickly become my new favorite cleanser.
Argan Rosemary Facial Cleansing Oil: This product is an essential to me now. You pump a little onto a cotton ball and swipe it across your face after cleansing. It gets rid of any remaining dirt or debris that was left behind. The rosemary oil kills bacteria, which is why this is an amazing product for getting rid of acne.
Moroccan Argan Oil: I mean, if any of you out there don’t have Argan Oil in your life get with it! This oil is the perfect nighttime moisturizer. You need the smallest amount, just enough to absorb in to your skin. I promise you will wake up with more plump and hydrated skin.
Argan and Olive Hand and Body Lotion: This is a lightweight, yet hydrating lotion. It absorbs so quickly into the skin and leaves a silky glow behind. It smells strongly of peppermint, with a bit of sweetness (sort of like those mini peppermint candy canes). I find the scent to last a while and even tingles my skin, which is really relaxing.
African Blue Calming Bath Oil Drops:This is really unique product. The oil is blue and very fragrant. This product is ideal if you work out a lot and have really sore muscles. You put some into your bath and it will perfume the air and hydrate your skin. When you get out of the bath you don’t even need to apply lotion because of how moisturized you’ll already be.
It is easy to forget how important it is to give love and feel love. We go about our lives with tight schedules and rarely have time to enjoy the company that surrounds us, let alone express how we feel. I have been back into my One Tree Hill episodes (guilty pleasure), but among all the drama there is always a great lesson in the end. We often become consumed by television shows and movies because of how freely the characters express themselves. I find myself wishing I could show others how I feel like they do in the movies, but find it incredibly hard to do so. I usually blame this on being raised with three brothers. Sharing your feelings wasn’t exactly normal behavior. So I encourage you all to really try to let others know how you feel. Don’t be ashamed to let someone know you love them. I also encourage you all to show more love each day toward others. I swear it is contagious. Love motivates, gives purpose, and makeup us stronger.
Sooo, Andrew and I finally did the husband does my makeup tag and boy are you in for a treat! Honestly he didn’t do too bad up until he put on my lipstick. It was all downhill from there… a very steep hill. I hope this brings a smile to your day and makes you laugh a little, or a lot! I always have to remind myself that life is too short to be taken too seriously. I can count on Andrew for making me laugh each and every day.
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. It rained here quite a bit, so I was in the best mood. Am I the only one out there who loves the rain? Andrew and I got sucked into watching old One Tree Hill re-runs and couldn’t stop! But to me there is nothing better than baggy sweaters, coffee, cuddling and rain.
Today’s look is all about transitioning into warmer weather. Roll up your sleeves and throw on some shorts, but keep the scarf and boots.
I fell asleep and woke up a happy girl! Why you ask? Because it is finally raining! I feel like most people hate the rain, but when it is raining I am so in love. I think the sound of rain is the most soothing thing on earth. Ironically, it was bright and sunny two days ago when these pictures were took!
This look is all about neutrals. There is something so effortless about monochromatic outfits. Play with different textures to add dimension to your look . A jacket in a contrasting shade and statement jewelry will give you just the right amount of contrast.
I had so much fun on this Windsor collaboration! The moment I laid eyes on this dress, I knew it had to be mine. I love pairing warm neutrals with brighter pieces, to balance out the look. I felt very 1970′s in this outfit, from the circle sunnies right down to the platform heels! Have fun transitioning into spring. It may not be as warm where you live right now, but throw on a neon top and you can pretend!
Hey guys! I hope you are getting this week off to a good start so far. I have a fun collaboration for you that I did with the gorgeous Sara, or LovebyLynn. We decided to show you all what we would eat in a typical day. Make sure you stop by her blog for some fabulous posts that you will stare at all day long..trust me. Also, go subscribe to her new YouTube channel, she has amazing work outs there! I hope you all enjoy!
