If you’re on a budget or just love a good deal, check out the Who what wear collection at Target. They have so many cute pieces that won’t break the bank. Happy shopping:)

Tinted Sunscreen For Sensitive Skin.

23 Apr

For those of you that have been following my blog for a while, you know that I’m an SPF addict! I wear hats and SPF daily to avoid any sun exposure to my face. I am very sensitive when it comes to sunscreens and break out very easily when I try new brands. My friend Jacki talked me into trying Elta MD and I am obsessed!!! First of all, it’s tinted so I love that(they have non tinted as well) and secondly, it’s made for skin types prone to acne, rosacea and hyperpigmentation. I have acne prone skin and hyperpigmentation (dark patches) so I was all for it! Hyperpigmentation can be kept under control when the sun is avoided. This particular sunscreen is made with Zinc oxide which sits on top of the skin, so the sun can’t penetrate at all and since I’ve been using this SPF my dark patches have lightened. With summer approaching I thought I’d share this amazing Sunscreen with you all.  elta

Shop Elta MD HERE

It is more expensive than traditional non zinc sunscreen, but it actually works! I wear it alone and under my makeup. I also prefer a high SPF so I wear 46, but they have lower SPFs as well.

Let’s Talk Terrariums!

28 Feb

I’ve been getting so many questions about my cute little terrarium and thought I’d share all the information with you here. First of all, if you don’t know what a terrarium is, don’t fret. I’m sure you’ve seen them around. A terrarium is an enclosed, indoor garden, usually small and made of glass so that you can see your collection of plants. Before I knew that they were called terrariums, I was searching for ‘Geometric plant holder” and open air vase” on Pinterest and google until I purchased mine from West Elm.

Now that we’ve covered the name, let’s talk about how cute terrariums are and how neat it is to have a living piece of art in your home. I also love how low maintenance they are- I literally mist mine with a spray bottle once a week and nothing more. Making it was quick and easy as well (and I am NOT a crafty person). It took me about 20 minutes total. Pinterest gave me inspiration and I looked up you tube videos on how to layer the terrarium in different ways and chose the look of white rocks on the bottom to match my current gold and neutral theme. Some people incorporate sand as well as tiny figurines. I kept mine more minimal and layered it starting on the bottom with white rocks, then added some dirt from outside, planted succulents in the dirt, then topped it off with some moss. It’s fun to make them your own!

I bought the succulents, white rocks, and moss from Home depot and the actual terrarium is from West Elm. I definitely recommend a terrarium if you want to add a cool piece of living breathing art to your home. They are easy, affordable and super cute!!!
