I don’t know about you, but I feel like it has been summer for over a year. What the heck? Where is the cold and the rain? We left hot California for a slightly less warm Seattle. Good grief all I want to do is drink hot tea and light candles. So even though it is mid September I am still in tank tops and shorts. These black silk shorts from Forever 21 are a great staple to have. I also have been living in these leopard flats from Windsor. Even in Seattle, I can’t escape my casual California style. I’m all about comfort people. Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
With fall coming up it’s super important to keep your skin hydrated. My skin is starting to feel slightly dryer as the weather is beginning to change and I am so ready for cooler weather! I have listed each step I have been taking before I go to bed at night. Each of these products does a great job at keeping my skin clear, even and hydrated. Check below for links and more details on each product.
One Love Organics Skin Savor Waterless Multi-Balm- This product can be used for so many things, which makes it worth the money. You can use this as a hair tamer, illuminizer, makeup remover, moisturizer, pomade..the list goes on. I prefer using it as a makeup remover. All you do is rub some product onto your eyes and face and your makeup will melt away. With ingredients like mango butter, vitamin e, jojoba oil, and orange peel wax you can imagine how luxurious it smells and feels.
Sibu Cleanser- I use this immediately after I remove my makeup. It gets the remainder off and then gives your skin a great cleanse. Sibu products have sea buckthorn seed oil in them, which has done amazing things for my skin. This cleanser has been my favorite for over a year, so I think that speaks for itself!
Murad Transforming Powder- If I want to give my face a deep clean, I will follow up with a scrub. This one by Murad is a powder, so you add water to it to form a paste. This is a great product for sensitive and acne prone skin because it is very gentle, but very effective.
Just Natural Acne Manuka Oil Treatment- If I have any pimples, I will apply this as a spot treatment. I swear by oils for clearing up acne. This oil in particular has karanja and camellia oils that are lightweight and antibacterial. The first night I used this, I had two pimples smack dab in the middle of my forehead. I applied a few drops of this on the area before bed and when I woke up, the spots were significantly reduced. Hello new best friend.
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Moroccan Beauty Oil- When I want to both heal and treat my skin at night, I slather on an oil. I’ve been obsessed with this one by Andalou. The subtle rose scent is so relaxing and the oil itself does a great job at making my skin look plump and even when I wake up in the morning. It is full of tannins and polyphenols which helps to tighten the skin.
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Mask- If I feel my skin needs some extra love, I will use a mask after I wash my face. The scent of this is beyond words. It is loaded with pomegranate that tones and hyaluronic acid and aloe vera for extra hydration.
I spend this past weekend in New York and am still trying to catch my breath! It was a crazy trip filled with lots of fashion, great food and great wine. I filmed the entire trip so stay tuned for a peek into what my weekend looked like. Today’s post is all about the outfit I wore to the Alyssa Collura show. I wanted to wear something a bit bohemian to reflect the Alyssa Collura’s girly and feminine designs. I chose this dress from Nordstrom which happens to be in my favorite color. I love that the shade completely changes depending on the light. Sometimes it looks teal, while other times it comes off navy. I paired it with chunky heeled booties by Jeffery Campbell. Can you even get over how awesome these shoes are? The second I saw them it was love. They have a worn in, vintage look which gives a very relaxed feel. I like finding pieces that can be used for multiply occasions. When it starts to cool down I will pair this dress with tights and these shoes with jeans. Get more bank for you buck! I hope you all are having a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you had a great week and are ready for the weekend! I am getting all set to go to the airport right now. I hope I have everything I need…if I do forget something, pretty sure I’ll be able to find it in New York. I can wait to film for you guys and get some great pictures of the city! I also want to let you know I wont’ have a video up next Monday since I will still be out of town. But I already have one planned for Wednesday which will be centered around gluten free snacks! Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the video!
I have been obsessing over booties. I just got #6 in this collage to wear at fashion week and love them so so much. Get yourself some booties for the fall. They are so versatile which makes them a closet essential! My favorite way to wear them is by dressing them down with boyfriend jeans and a flannel. They also add a great look to dresses. No matter what your style looks like, there are endless options… open/closed toe, thin/chunky or no heel, suede/leather, hardware…you get it! Next time you are shopping, stop by the shoe department and try a pair on. Tweet me a picture too! Who else is SO ready for fall!? Bring on the colder weather! So have fun shopping my top pick below. I tried to include all price points.
Sorry for being MIA this week! I am swamped with things to do. I’m heading to New York on Friday and then my mom and one of my friends is visiting next week so I am trying to get ahead! I wanted to let you all know about the giveaway running on my channel this week. You still have a few days to enter so hurry hurry! Most of the items were in the goody bags I passed out during my meet up. I hope you all enjoy!
This week flew by for me, anyone else? I sort of didn’t want it to go by so fast because I have so much to do. I may take a little break today, then work through the weekend to get ahead. I hope you all enjoy my favorites today. I really looove these products. Most of them should be new to you so hopefully you get some fun new product ideas! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!
Another month has gone by and it’s time to show you my trash! I feel like I was trying to hard to work through some products and for some reason didn’t have much in the end. I used up so many products before we moved so I guess it will take me a little time to start pushing through some more. I love getting to the bottom of my products. I feel somehow rewarded and accomplished. Please tell me some of you feel the same way! This months empties were pretty half and half. Some I liked, some I didn’t. I hope you all get a good sense to how each product worked for me. That’s the nice thing about reviewing a product after it is used up, I completely know how I liked it or not. Thank you all so much for coming by my blog today and have a great Thursday!
Happy Wednesday everyone!! I wanted to let you all know about a sale going on at Loft right now. There are a ton of clothes that are 50% off full price and it’s just in time for fall. Here are my top pics out of the sale items, and I am slightly obsessed with them. You all probably know I own a LOT of Loft clothing/accessories. My Mom has worked there for a while and she always lets me know when good stuff is out. I was shocked to see how cute these sale items were. They all are great transition pieces from summer to fall. Make sure to check everything out before it’s gone! (If you are in Temecula, CA stop by and say hi to my Mom!) Check it out HERE
Can you believe it is almost September? What the heck? That just seems crazy to me. I swear, I always feel like summer will last forever and then…bam…it’s over. So even though it is still hot (yes even in Seattle-I think we brought the heat with us), I felt like I should start thinking about fall fashion. I am getting a tad over the ‘cochella’ look, which kind of went on the entire summer. But hey, I am all about it don’t get me wrong. So in honor of fall, I put together an outfit that is much more fall-appropriate but isn’t full-on chunky sweater and boots. Wearing pants was a big deal for me! Haha…but seriously. Adding in some heels dresses up this simple look and wearing a cross-body bag keeps the effortless summer vibe. And how cute is this one?? I hope you all enjoyed this look and have a great week!
