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.

Wrap yourself in Holiday Magic! (under $30)

19 Dec

I’ve been wanting a holiday cape for quite some time. They’re cute, comfy, and super festive. The only con when purchasing a holiday cape is that they will be worn for a limited amount of time. So for me, it never felt right to spend a lot of money on a holiday cape. Hence, why I never had one.

I recently found so many affordable capes on She in.  I chose a red plaid cape with gold button detail and already have an outfit planned for it! If you’re looking for a year round cape or a holiday cape, you should definitely check out She in.

Affordable Luxury. Fine jewelry that you can afford!

23 Jul

When shopping for jewelry, two things catch my eye before anything else. Quality and price. Some quality pieces are unattainable, while some affordable pieces are lacking in quality. I’m so excited to share a jewelry company that offers affordable luxury. YES, you read that right. Ethically sourced gold, diamond and pearl jewelry that is fairly priced. Let me introduce you to AUrate .AUrate necklace

I have yet to see a company this transparent when it comes to pricing and the designs are so beautiful, you’re going to want everything.  If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know dainty jewelry is my thing.  The AUrate website is dainty jewelry heaven.  As if that wasn’t enough, with every purchase, AUrate donates a book to a child in need.
