I'm such a vanilla girl!
His "okay I need to eat now" face ;)
There's something about In-N-Out that I cannot pass up! Why do we not have one here in Fayetteville??? I remember my first time at one: during spring break with my parents and it was the only place I insisted to go to while in Dallas (okay other than go see Marry Poppins and shop of course). Anyways my point is that I always make a point to go there when I am around one because I don't always want food like that or a burger so I might as well take advantage of the cheap and greasy goodness! And it's just too cute!
Shout out real quick to my awesome Austin and his always amazing photos!! My vision always comes through even better than I imagined! Give him follow!
I'm that girl with the major sleepy face in the mornings. You know, the one with the sleep marks and puffy eyes? I am also pretty strict with my nighttime routine. I get in my pjs and take my contacts out, wash my face and apply all my products, brush my teeth, and apply argan oil to the ends of my hair! I have it so down, that it really doesn't even take that long.
I found the perfect solution though for my puffy eyes! VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask for all night repair is the first eye mask able to be worn for 8 hours overnight. It has a gel-like material that feels so cool and refreshing putting it on and I wake up without puffy eyes even if I didn't get enough sleep! It helps to moisturize and smooth the dainty skin under your eyes without pulling on them. Or, if I have a photoshoot or even coming up in the evening, I wear it for at least an hour while I am getting ready, to help freshen up my eyes. Check them out and take advantage of all of their extra goodies you can get with your purchase!
Stock up on these bad boys because you never know when you might need them! Perfect to slip in your bag while traveling; on the place or in your car too, you will not be disappointed!!
Thank you VII code for sponsoring this post!
You're in your 20's they say. You need to watch your skin and start using serum they say! Okay, at 21 who truly thinks they need to start using anti-aging serums? Normally you think you need to start using them at the first sign of a wrinkle. That's too late though because you already have the darn crease!
I teamed up with Ogee Organic Skincare to help give my skin the perfect glow this fall. When the weather changes my skin goes crazy! With these natural products, my skin won't react weird to any harsh chemicals and the jojoba oils will help keep my skin from getting too dry. The jojoba oils also work to reverse the aging process of our skin and keep it looking young longer. Who doesn't want that?! Also, all of their products are certified organic luxury items. You know, great for the environment and animal friendly, I'm allll about that! Made to keep your skin at it's best and give a beautiful, fresh glow.
I am obsessed with their Sculpted Lip Oil balm! It's a decent size too which is great because I can take it everywhere and it will last forever. It is the perfect prime base for layering lipsticks! Their Daily Facial Cleansing Cloths are so soft and help wipe away the day for a fresh face, great to take to the gym or use to cleanse at night. Now for the Jojoba Restore Face Oil... not gonna lie I was scared it would make my face too oily. However, it makes my skin so soft and doesn't leave a residue! It's also great for reducing the look of fine lines! Last but not least, the Seeds of Youth Serum!! It makes uneven skin tones look better in seconds and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. I'll be using this as I get older that's for sure.
Thanks so much to Ogee for sponsoring this post!!
It took me years to figure out the best wave product for my hair. On top, my hair tends to be a little more straight than the weird waves underneath. It also took me years to embrace my natural hair because my hair texture and waves changed at that time in middle school when all any girl ever wanted was stick straight hair. I went through so many products until I kept hearing about the Not Your Mother's Beach Babe texturizing sea salt spray (also I like the name of it so that helped). It basically does to my hair what it looks like when I'm at the beach, which I consider my prime spot for my natural hair. This helps keep my waves in but doesn't make it greasy or stiff! Not to mention it smells good, as well as their dry shampoo and other products. Everything is at a great price and they offer travel size!! Check them out!!
XX Happy SUNday!
Okay, but how cute is this packaging!? During the summer our skin always needs a boost, especially towards the end. I like to use a scrub that can get off all of that dry skin from too much time spent by the pool or out in the humidity. Frank Body is the original coffee body scrub made with all natural ingredients and packed with sweetness! All of their products are 100% vegan, smell seriously amazing, and are so great for your skin! Just like a coffee perks me up, it perks up your skin too making it so soft and young looking. Not to mention really fun to use because you feel so dirty putting it on but so clean post scrub and balm.
Warning though! If you have sensitive skin like me, I suggest not scrubbing your body raw and using this more like once a week instead of twice. Trust me you'll look forward to it even more (especially if you have a little bit of chocolate to enjoy with it :) I treated myself to a spa day with these goodies and it made for the perfect start to my birthday week!!
Get dirty and get scrubbing and get back to your natural beauty girls! xx
Thank you Frank Body for sponsoring this post!
Right after he said he couldn't wait to dunk me... I don't normally like to go under in rivers and lakes because I'm just weird like that. But convinced him not too :)
So yeah, I have major sensitive skin issues, but that doesn't stop me from trying new makeup all the time to find the right balance. Influenster and Laura Mercier recently sent me their new line of Flawless Fusion makeup (complimentary foundation and translucent setting powder), which can be found at Sephora! It supposed to be super long lasting with full-medium coverage, AND for combination sensitive skin. What more could I ask for in a foundation?! It feels so light but covers so well and helps keep my face from looking oily during the day. I have the 1N2 Vanille foundation and the fair to medium powder, a perfect mix. Go check it out, they even have a travel size powder if you want to just try it out.
Happy Sunday loves! XX
I have some sweet memories of blueberry picking from when I was little with my mom and sis, taking them home, and waiting for what felt like forever for the blueberry pie to finish so I could top it off with too much vanilla ice cream. Well as it turns out, my sister's new apartment is super close to Neal Family Farm and she saw the day before that they would be open for picking the next day!! At work all day, the only thing I could think about was making some blueberry cobbler.
We got there and they also had blackberries!! Which are my favorite, so it made it all that much better! It actually takes a lot longer to fill up those buckets with those little berries, and we couldn't help but eat them as we picked.
And let's just say the entire night was a success because I wore my favorite white tee from Zara and didn't get any berry juice on it while picking and cooking :)
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend & Father's Day!
In Chinatown, I stumbled across the cutest Korean beauty store called the SAEM and I couldn't just pass by. And boy did I take advantage of being in an actual Korean beauty store! I stocked up on face masks, they have beautiful perfume scents, nail polish, and amazing youth beauty products- because it's never to late to start preventing aging and you should start using creams by the time you hit your early 20's!
They also gave me a big bag of beauty samples (because I spent too much ;) and that is my favorite!! I think it's so smart of beauty companies to give out samples because A) It's so fun B) You can fall in love with products you didn't even know you needed. I have super sensitive skin, like so bad mixed with eczema, so I struggle finding good products for my face to balance out my skin. So far, every thing I have tried has felt wonderful. My favorite (not pictured) is the Cell Renew Bio Micro Peel Soft Gel, it smells so good and makes my skin feels so soft instantly. Also, their nail polish is so cheap and it's long lasting!! I got it in the Jungle Mint and I'm obsessed. If you go to their website thesaeumus.com you can sign up and get 20% off your first purchase!
Hope everyone has a great Monday! XO
I can't believe I am just now getting this up! When I was in NY I happened to be there the same weekend of the Muses App launch and could not have been more excited to be invited! Muses is an app for bloggers and companies to collaborate and bring together new communities and friends in the blogging world. It was so fun getting to connect and meet people and brands face to face, take pictures, and grow together. I loved walking into the room and feeling that everyone there just gets each other, wanting to bring one another up in what we do. One of the brands there, Anjé Clothing, (the leather jacket I have on) was minimalistic perfection and all American-made products, which I love. They have a line that supports strong and fearless women as well! Go check them out!!
Thanks so much for having me in NYC Muses!
