We all hear about the damages of the sun on our skin, but don't want to use an oily sunscreen as an everyday part of our beauty routine. Here are a few of my favorite items that keep my skin feeling fresh, young, and protected. And don't forget about your beautiful locks too!!
The strongest holding hairspray I have ever used, not to mention my go-to since my dance days. Big Sexy Hair knows what they are doing when you need strong hold but moveable and soft hair. I also love that they offer so many different size bottles so that you can always have one near you. Now that I have bangs, I use hair spray on the daily just to help them out a little bit. Even though they aren't long enough to fit in a pony, I can brush them back and use this spray & boom gone, off the face, and ready for the gym!
Get the big sexy hair you need!
There are a few questions that I get asked ALL the time!! And today I thought I'd answer them for you all and of course link my favorite products :)
You guyssss, these beautiful brushes!! Not only are they pretty but they work too!! I absolutely love the rose gold and white, they are so cute even just out in a cup on my bathroom counter. They are incredibly soft and help apply makeup so smooth. Perfect for blending foundation, powder, and blush for a flawless look. Whether a professional, or just a makeup lover these brushes are too fun! They are surprisingly affordable too, my Umbrella Cut Oval set is only $24.99!! Also, they don't shed! Have at it girls!!
Thank you My Makeup Brush Set for sending these my way!
The sweetest smelling masks I ever did use! Farm House Fresh uses all fresh, organic ingredients and are made in Texas; not to mention a women-owned company!! You go girls! I got this cute little set from a friend for Christmas and I love that I can mix and match them towards what my face is needing. One for Radiance boost, exfoliation, and hydration, the perfect combo for winter skin. The Splendid Dirt Pumpkin mask is probably my favorite because it seriously smells just like pumpkin pie and tingles when you use it (that's when you know it's working). It provides oxygenation and increases circulation as well as helps to clear congested skin. Every little skin solver your could need in one cute little set!
Dry winter skin. Enough said am I right? Frustrating and uncomfortable!! However, with the moisturizers can come the break outs. This duo by Paula's Choice is the perfect solution for combination skin. I use the Pore Clarifying Charcoal Gel Mask on my T-Zone and the Rehydrating Moisture Mask on my cheeks to tackle the problem all at once and it leaves my skin feeling so fresh and soft! The moisture mask can be worn over night (just be sure to wash off in the morning). I tend to use it in the morning right after I shower to add a little extra moisture to my skin before I apply makeup. After about 20 minutes, I rinse it off, apply my regular moisturizer, and I'm ready to do my makeup! These are seriously the perfect combination for a quick skin pick-me-up!!

The weather changes and suddenly my face freaks out! That is why I have to have a strict beauty regimen in the morning and at night. One thing I have added to my fall beauty routine this year is the Clarisonic Mia 1. Thanks to Her Campus and Clarisonic for gifting me this! I received the Mia sonic cleanser, so cute, pore and blemish gel cleanser, and refreshing gel cleanser.
I start my morning routine with it in the shower (yes, it's waterproof). I wet my face with warm water, and then apply the cleansing gel to the brush head. I use it on my T-Zone area rubbing in circles to make sure I get all the areas that need a deep cleaning after a good night's sleep. I use the regular brush 4 days out of the week, and the deep pore brush the other three days, alternating heads because I tend to get dry skin especially once it gets colder out. After I get out of the shower I moisturize and my skin is ready to go for makeup. SO EASY! P.S. the Clarisonic devices do not exfoliate; a common myth among these treatments! You can use the device twice a day, even for sensitive skin! (I only use it once a day because of my eczema but it still works so well!)
I have been using this for a few weeks now and even within the first week I noticed a difference in my skin. I started using it right during the worst time of the year for my skin and I am so happy with the results! My skin tone is more even on my forehead and breakouts have reduced a ton! Also those pesky blackheads seem to be improving on my nose and chin without irritating my skin thanks to those gentle brushes.
Who doesn't want clear skin?? Thanks to Clarisonic, you guys can get 15% off all devices here!! Use my code HERCAMPUS at checkout and be on your way to clearer skin in just 10 days!! Clarisonic also offers monthly payment plans upon credit approval. For less than 63 cents a day, you can have clearer-looking skin for life :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Volume. One of my biggest hair struggles because I have thin, silky hair; especially when the air starts to get dryer in the fall! Maybe I just found my new secret though! Elle Magazine and Goldwell sent me their latest Kerasilk Repower shampoo and foam conditioner and I am seriously impressed. Also the foam was just a fun way to use conditioner compared the usual old way ;) I tend to wear my hair up on days I'm in a hurry but I always feel like I need a little volume with it, and this new shampoo duo is the perfect trick. I also love switching up my products every now and then because it helps keep from getting a build up. It's the perfect first step to touchable and soft, full hair!
Thanks Goldwell & Elle!
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!
