A Very Glowy Spring

IMG_6725.JPG

Ahh, I can almost picture it—it’s about 60 degrees out, there’s moisture in the air and it’s replenishing your old winter dry skin by the second. So long, winter skin—hello moisturized, glowing skin.

All winter long my face was dry and flaky—no matter what I did to exfoliate, cleanse and moisturize, nothing seemed to work. My dry skin was not budging, even though my skin care routine stayed consistent. Thank goodness spring is almost here because it seems as though once the spring air hits, my dry skin is gone—along with the last frigid day.

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is to…have a really good outfit! …I hope you all just enjoyed my ‘Elf’ reference with a little bit of my own spin!

My #GiftCrush

IMG_3295.jpg

Hey everyone! Are you all getting ready for the holidays? I wish I could say that I am too — however, I am stuck at school wrapping up finals week! I should be heading home tomorrow (weather permitting) and then I can really crack down on my holiday shopping.

It’s sad that I don’t even feel like I’m in the holiday spirit but I guess that’s because I’m not at home, cuddled up with a blanket next to my Christmas tree…soon!

Today I am going to be chatting about my #GiftCrush! This is a campaign through Influenster and I think it’s so cute! I am going to be featuring products below that I would give as a gift, or love to receive! This post could also act as a ‘favorites’ post, because these are all my favorite products right now!

Let’s get started:

Faux & Fab

IMG_3035

Hey loves!

Today I’m talking faux fur! I had a feeling faux fur was going to be in this year, and I was right! This jacket is really cute—but there’s a story behind it…of course! Back in September, I was gifted a gift card from Citizen’s Bank through social media, for Amazon! I was so excited, and wanted to use it to do a little Amazon clothing haul. I ordered three items, this coat being one of them. Two weeks after I ordered, the first two items came (from China) and they were so small, poor quality, and looking NOTHING like how they were displayed. This coat was shipped separately and JUST came last week!! Though it took a long time, I was really happy with the fact that it fit, it’s super cute and nice quality. Enough with the back story, let’s get into this look!

Sunday Funday

Hey everyone! I love a good Sunday Funday, just as much as the next person! However, Sundays for me usually consist of cracking down and doing some homework. Especially with the Thanksgiving break coming up, I am pretty sure every college student can relate to the struggle this week.

Anyways, just because I am missing out on the fun this Sunday, doesn’t mean you have to! That is why I want to highlight this outfit that is PERF for any relaxing Sunday. It’s comfy and casual, but you may need to add a jacket.

Let’s get to it!

My Skin Care Routine!

IMG_2862.jpg

Hi everyone! So I feel like the changing of the seasons is the perfect time to talk about skincare. I don’t know about you but it seems like right after summer, my skin starts to freak out and get all sorts of dry but oily and then break out! It’s so frustrating. Though as frustrating as it may be, I don’t give up on my skin, I persist! Which is why I bring you: my skincare routine.

Let me just start off by saying: ladies, no matter where you are or what you’re doing, the best thing you can do for your skin is take your makeup off every. single. night!!!!

Let’s get started:

Chill(in)

Hi friends! I hope everyone has been having a great week. For me, the weeks have just been flying by.

In order for me to have a fulfilled week, I always like to work on my blog — my blog is relaxing because it is something I love to do so it keeps me sane!

It got awfully chilly here in Rhode Island this week, the chill came out of no where! That is why for this outfit, I am showing off my favorite winter coat. When I got this coat, I envisioned myself in “Confessions of a Shopaholic” when the main character is strutting down the street in her houndstooth coat. Lucky for me, I got this as a Christmas gift (thanks Mom & Dad!!)

New Stuff, New Review!

Happy Sunday, everyone! I am taking this Sunday to unwind after a long couple of weeks, what are you up to today?

I recently went shopping for some makeup staples, brushes, foundation, concealer and bronzer — things I don’t refill a lot, but it was definitely time! So often, I get caught up in getting new eye pencils or lip colors that I forget I sometimes need to stock up on the necessities, the every day make up! Let’s get started.

With that being said, let’s dive into this ultra fall look!
