Oil Free Moisture!

13 Oct

I don’t know about you, but since this pandemic has begun, I’ve been breaking out more than ever due to wearing a mask. I’ve exclusively used the same Origins cream nightly for years(powerful lifting cream), until recently when I added a new moisturizer (clear improvement)to my regimen. It’s basically an acne treatment & oil-free moisturizer in one- formulated with 1% Salicylic Acid to help clear and help prevent new breakouts. I’ve been using it for 2 weeks now and already see an improvement. I go back and forth between the clear improvement and the powerful lifting cream every other night and it’s been working out perfect for me. If you’re looking to moisturize while preventing breakouts, I highly suggest this product.

Cute & Comfy Hiking Boots!

14 Jul

Hiking is one of my favorite activities, I’ve been doing it for years- in sneakers. I had never really given any thought to getting hiking boots. I had nothing against them, but I just always threw on sneakers for workouts including hikes. Once the Covid-19 pandemic started, I started hiking more than ever and doing difficult hikes as well. I thought  hiking boots might be a good idea, and began to research. I quickly realized that Columbia hiking boots had some of the best reviews. What struck me as important is the fact that so many reviews mentioned comfort. People went on and on about how comfortable they were. Avid hikers raved about these boots. So I found some with pink laces(of course) and bought them without trying them on. I’m glad I did, they are cute, waterproof, easy to get on and off, and very comfortable- comfortable right out of the box!!! No breaking in needed at all. I have been on 4 hikes with them now and am so impressed. I can’t recommend these boots enough.

This style is called Newton Ridge. They’re available in other colors as well and are waterproof. Click Here to shop.

You need this Bralette!

17 May

You read that right!! I have stumbled upon the most comfortable bralette EVER! I was at Target and decided to buy a new braletteto sleep in. During this time of the Covid pandemic the fitting rooms are closed, so I took a chance and bought it.  I figured I could always return it if it didn’t fit. Well, no need for a return because it fit perfectly! So much that I immediately went online to buy a second color. It has the look of a seamless sports bra, and a barely-there feel.  It also doesn’t roll up or bulge in the back, it’s just smooth. This bralette takes comfort to the next level.  I highly suggest it. If you’re on the fence about it… check out the reviews.

 

Available in pinkish nude and black.  Priced at $14.99 SHOP HERE

Pantyhose that don’t run or rip? YES!

6 Mar

When I think of pantyhose, the first thing that comes to mind, are rips and runs. I have never owned a pair that didn’t eventually get a run in them or holes- I feel like it’s inevitable, because they’re so delicate. UNTIL NOW! Sheertex is changing the pantyhose game!  Yesterday I wore mine all day and you better believe I was pulling on them to see if the claims were true. I was literally trying to tear them and nothing was happening, I also tried poking my finger through them and… nothing. They held up and are seriously strong! Another great thing about these pantyhose is the sustainability factor, most pantyhose usually last 1-3 wears before they rip, tear or run and you have to buy more. With Sheertex, they last so long that you’re saving precious landfill space and money. WIN WIN!

There are many different sheertex color and size options to choose from, I chose the polka dot version.

Sweater Weather

29 Oct

I love cozy sweaters during Fall and Winter, and wear them differently depending on the temp outside. I recently found a sweater that can go from day to night and cool to cold! This boatneck sweater is warm enough to wear alone, but thin enough to layer under a jacket. It’s comes in so many colors and is under $40 at Old Navy.  I bought the camel color, what color will you buy?

Prints are huge during Fall and Winter, with Leopard print being by far the most popular. I have a few key leopard pieces that I rotate into my Fall and Winter wardrobes, but my favorite would have to be my leopard clutch! It adds the perfect blend of fun, edgy and chic to any look and can be worn day or night.

Shop my exact leopard flat clutch below. I’ve also linked a fold over version as well.

Holy Grail Strapless Bra!

17 Jul

Happy Summer! Also known as strapless bra season. I recently heard about an amazing strapless bra and had to try it for myself. Strapless bras are hard to shop for when you have a large chest. They roll up on your back, you spill out of them, or they just don’t hold you up.

It’s frustrating and frankly makes me not even want to buy dresses that need a strapless bra. Until now!! A company that I’ve never even heard of came through with the best strapless bra I’ve ever worn. The bra is by Soma intimates, they also have panties, pjs etc. The bra is called the vanishing strapless bra and it retails for $62. (Which is a not bad for a bra that will last 5 plus years) Sometimes it does go on sale so keep an eye out. I scored mine at their semi annual sale! I put mine to the test last week on date night (pictured below) and it didn’t disappoint. Click HERE to shop for your own strapless bra at Soma.                                        Also, they have the BEST lace thongs 6 for $36!

Pretty Pink Pout!

8 May

Every Spring I get so excited to wear pretty pink lipsticks. I wear pink lip color year round, but during the warmer months I go with lighter, more rose toned pinks. I have 2 new favorites to share with you that I’ve been wearing non stop.

The first color is a light dusty rose powder matte by Maybelline called ‘Nocturnal Rose’. Although it’s matte, it’s not the typical drying formula.  This is the color that I’m wearing in my latest Instagram post.  $8 Shop HERE.

The second color is medium warm pink by Bobbi Brown called ‘Bitten’.  It has the look of lipstick, but the feel of a lip balm. $29 Shop HERE.
