Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Must Have Jackets and Jeans

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Must Have Jackets and Jeans

Fall is coming sooner than you may think! So I suggest stocking up on the best jackets and jeans you can before the season is in full swing. Plus, there are many lightweight jackets you can wear now. It’s always freezing indoors in the summertime, so a light jacket or cardigan is a necessity for me. Now jeans are certainly a year-round staple that you can never have too many of. Remember that you can shop all of my favorite denim from the #Nsale here.

No7 Laboratories: Over the Counter Solution to Dark Spots

No7 Laboratories: Over the Counter Solution to Dark Spots

No7 Laboratories is a skincare brand I recently discovered and have been loving! If you’re not familiar with them, they are especially popular in the UK and have actually been around for almost 90 years. Something that I really love about No7 is that they never feature supermodels in their advertising and don’t retouch the real people that they use. This brand seems to be most well known for their age-defying skincare, but also their makeup that aims to match the skin’s true shade. You can find No7 products at stores like Ulta.

Gingham Trend: This Summer’s Most Classic Trend Favorites

Gingham Trend: This Summer’s Most Classic Trend Favorites

Hello Monday, Hello SUMMER! Now that it is officially Summer, let’s talk about this season’s most classic trend –  Gingham. I love gingham because it’s trendy but also timeless. It has been a staple since the 50s and 60s, and now there are so many modern options too. This chic pattern adds so much dimension and interest to any look, so it’s great to add to your closet. The best part about the gingham trend is that it works at all price points and in all different colors. You can wear it as an accent in a handbag or shoe, or go for a full on gingham look with a dress or statement pant like mine (sold out but similar here). Now let’s discuss all the ways you can wear the gingham trend this Summer!

Top Benefits of Double Cleansing Your Face

Top Benefits of Double Cleansing Your Face

Today we are going to talk about cleansing! Do you guys have a cleansing routine? I have a pretty firm one that I do religiously, but I have several friends that actually don’t use a cleanser everyday. SAY WHAT? Every skincare routine should start with a cleanser, as it is not only vital for cleaning the skin of pore-clogging debris like make-up and oil, but it also prepares the skin for further treatment and absorption. And did you know a second cleanse or “Double Cleansing” may prove to be an even more essential step in your routine? The idea of double cleansing has risen to popularity with skincare professionals and beauty gurus lately. But why cleanse twice? Let’s dive in to the benefits of double cleansing that I’ve discovered!

How to Wear Colored Shoes and Make them POP!

Did y’all know that we have just a little over a week left of Spring? I can hardly believe how fast it went! Although I always love starting a new season, I sometimes find it difficult to think of fresh outfit ideas toward the end of every season. Don’t you? So a couple weeks ago, I went shopping with a friend and stumbled upon these fabulous yellow shoes on MAJOR SALE (they come in black too). These are the kind of shoes that totally make an outfit. This inspired me to style an otherwise simple monochromatic look on top, which allowed my shoes to really POP! And it got me thinking how hesitant some of us may be to buy a bold shoe. That’s why today I want to share with you my best tips on how to wear colored shoes…
