When it comes to skincare, I love trying new things but my skin can be sensitive so I have to be careful when using new products. I have started to notice a pattern for what works for me and what doesn’t though, so that definitely helps me avoid a lot of bad skin moments. I love anything that brightens skin and helps with anti-aging and DMAE is one of my favorite ingredients. That’s why I was so excited to try the Jan Marini C-Esta Face Serum. This serum is packed with antioxidants, Vitamin C, and DMAE and works to firm, lift, and tighten skin. Sounds like a winner to me!
I have so much fun with skincare. Masks, serums, creams- I love the process of applying them and really taking care of my skin. I love having mini spa nights and seeing how different products make a big difference in my skin. I hate to say it, but pretty much all of my pampering involves my face. Skincare for hands is definitely something I need to work on, especially since no matter how great and young my face looks, if my hands look rough I won’t be fooling anyone. I recently got the chance to try the Exuviance Age Reverse Hand Rejuvenator– a two-piece set that works to diminish signs of aging on hands. I was pretty excited since a hand peel is much for fun to use than just a normal hand cream. Who knows, it might even get me interested in taking care of my hands.
I like to wear a lot of different prints but stripes are definitely my number one. I love how they are simple and classic but can easily be bold and fresh depending on the size and what I pair them with. I usually go for a breton stripe but every now and then I mix it up, like with these two tops. I’ve been craving lots of stripes lately and these two black and white striped tops caught my eye. I love the fun details like gingham sleeves and a peplum but my favorite part is how easy each striped top is to wear.
I have to admit, I love clothes. My closet and dresser are full but every now and then (usually as the seasons change) I start to feel like I have nothing to wear. It’s amazing how just a few new pieces can liven up my wardrobe and make me excited to wear my clothes again. Sometimes I feel like adding some bright colors or a variety of different pieces but lately I’ve been all about cozy basics. I’ve been loving black and white, bold stripes, and classic pieces with interesting details. Since I’ve been drawn to trendier pieces that I might not wear forever, I don’t want to spend too much money on them. Luckily, I’ve found quite a few trendy, updated basics at SheIn, which fits my budget perfectly and allows me to pick up more than a handful of new items for my summer basics refresh.
I have to admit, I’ve never been a fan of dry shampoo. I love the idea (who wouldn’t want to extend their hairstyle?) but I’ve never found one that I liked. They always seem to have an overbearing, artificial scent and for a product that’s supposed to make my hair look cleaner, I’ve always found it to be the opposite. I was a bit hesitant to try the HASK Dry Shampoo but I’ve had so much luck with HASK’s hair products in the past that I decided to try it. I’m so happy I did because this has completely changed my opinion of dry shampoos.
I love fun prints, especially brighter-colored prints for summer. I really like the way prints can take a simple piece and make it much more interesting and dynamic. This palm print wrap skirt is the perfect example. A wrap skirt is a classic, timeless shape but the midi length and palm frond print makes this one perfect for strolling around on summer evenings. I love the longer length and the print is so fun- it makes me wish I was on an island somewhere, walking along the beach!
