I’m pretty big on skin care as most of you already know and my daily and weekly regimens are pretty intense. I take my skin seriously because I only get one face and quite frankly I don’t want a wrinkly one. Aging gracefully is beautiful but premature aging is not! (in my opinion) An important part of my regimen is face masks. I do a mask once or twice a week depending on the condition of my skin. My favorite face masks are by origins are pretty amazing! Shop my favorites below:)
One is a charcoal mask that clears pores. $26 The other one clears pores as well but is a little more focused on clearing up acne and oil. I actually use this one as a spot treatment on my acne while I sleep. Out of trouble mask $26
They are also available in smaller pod sample sizes if you’re curious on which mask is right for you. $4 each
Let me start by saying that I am not one to buy a lot of different perfumes. I own about 6 total but have steadily used Versace Red Jeans and Vera Wang Princess for the last 8 years. I never thought I would add a third fragrance to my main lineup until I smelled Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium! WOW!!!! It is as intoxicating as a perfume can get. The scent is unique and bold, yet warm and sweet. It has vanilla, floral and coffee notes with some musky undertones. (not overpowering musk though) I think of it as the perfect blend of spicy and sweet and will be wearing it throughout Fall & Winter.
Side note: Black opium is an Eau de parfum so a little goes a long way.
Black Opium comes in 4 sizes ranging in price from $25-$115.
How gorgeous is that bottle? Also available in a blinged out version ($300) if you’re feeling really fancy.
Hey guys, I hope you’re doing amazing today. As you all know I did a post on the Alexander Wang Rocco bag with rose gold hardware in early October……I must admit, I quickly became obsessed!!!! I ended up caving after about 2 weeks (the fastest I have caved for any handbag) and treated myself to the bag. Needless to say I LOVE IT and have been wanting to do a review on it and have gotten quite a few requests to do so as well….soooooo today while shooting some pictures for my OOTD on Instagram I took a couple extra shots of the bag to share with you and wanted to talk about a couple of things that I’ve noticed are missing from a lot of other Rocco reviews.
*The bag is beautiful OBVIOUSLY! * I love the top handles in addition to a shoulder strap although it’s NOT long enough for cross body wear. * I love the pebbled leather * I love love love the rose gold hardware, matches a lot of my jewelry, namely my wedding set:) * the rose gold is a very nice tone, not the overpowering ultra cheesy pink shade that some rose gold hardware can have. * heavy-duty and very well made bag* the trademark studded bottom is very cool without being too crazy * the bag has the feel of the LV Speedy with a little more edge
NOW onto the 2 most important points…
1.CON: This bag is HEAVY! I’m talking 4 pounds!!!! EMPTY! I personally don’t mind it but I know some of you might.
2. PRO: This bag has 2 “secret” pockets outside of the bag……I use one for keys, one for phone & lipstick. I like accessing my phone, keys etc without having to dig around the bottom of the bag.
There you have it…..overall my only con is the weight of the bag, everything else wonderful!!!!!! If you’re on the fence about this bag…..I say go for it! It will be in your collection for decades to come!
A closer look at the bag….
