Sam Smith's new album on repeat in my home, especially with my newest addition to my favorite little corner- my suede bluetooth Crosley Cruiser! I'm obsessed, in case you haven't seen my Instagram stories lately. I did absolutely nothing yesterday until I left my house at around 4:00 to go get a coffee and write this post. Not even the tv was turned on! Just me, some music, and my latest book Daring to Hope by Katie Davis Majors, the sequel to one of my most favorite books Kisses From Katie. Seriously go read them!! Inspiring and refreshing, and totally eye opening.
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!
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
Happy Late Memorial Day, I hope everyone had a nice weekend off! We spent Memorial weekend at Big Cedar Lodge (crashed my parents anniversary) for a quick relaxing retreat; which I must say I needed, from being in New York for nine crazy days! I have grown up going to Big Cedar and it's kind of like my home away from home, full of quiet and relaxation, but endless outdoor adventures, or the spa if you are that kind of gal :) For some reason, I will always picture Big Cedar as a more modern version of where Baby goes in Dirty Dancing with her family so maybe that's why I love it so much. I'm really not a huge outdoors girl, but If I can catch some rays in some beautiful weather and get a tan in the process, count me in! I love kayaking because I'm in full control and it's easy haha ;) More like the perfect arm workout actually.
I really need to catch up on some of my upcoming posts since I was gone for so long, but much more coming this summer and I cannot wait! Travel, fashion, and inspiration all in the works!! Anything you want to see from me, let me know!!
Cheers to Summer 2017!!
Us perfectly described in a picture. Me- way too excited, Austin- What are you doing?? Haha!
Also, here is the link to his hat!
All the surfer vans :)
All of mountains were covered in these beautiful yellow wild flowers that I just wanted to run through barefoot (I would have if they weren't fenced off haha). I probably said they were "cute" way too many times, but they were! It was also crazy windy the whole week, so excuse my crazy, stringy hair! If you are going to be close to Malibu anytime soon, be sure to go to the Point Dume State Park area, gorgeous!
The entire week I felt like I wore denim denim denim on repeat, not complaining because it's one of my favorites, but it was the perfect weather for a jean jacket! Nice n' breezy ~
Happy Monday loves!
