I have been really into sweaters lately. I get cold easily but I’m not a fan of wearing bulky layers or jackets, especially on my days off when I’m running errands or lounging around the house. As a result, I tend to end up wearing a uniform of sorts during the colder months- a cozy sweater with jeans or leggings and preferably some fun sneakers. It can definitely get a bit repetitive (especially since once I find a sweater I love, I tend to wear it for multiple days in a row) so I always look for pieces with something special. This lace up sleeve sweater from SheIn is my latest find and it’s been on repeat since I got it.
I can be very picky about my face washes, even though, to be honest, I think they’re all mostly the same. Sure, I have my favorites, but none of them really stand out as doing something that the others don’t. I always like trying new ones though, mostly because I get bored of using the same products all of the time. I was interested in checking out the NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash because it sounded like something new. It claims to resurface skin and actually sounds more like an exfoliating mask than a skin cleanser.
I’ve never been super into sporty clothes. Sure, I love comfy clothes and fun sneakers but you’ll never catch me running around in workout gear or tracksuits. But when I saw this velvet bomber, I had to have it. I’ve been into velvet and burgundy lately and I love how this jacket took a sporty silhouette and dressed it up a bit. Paired with a berry lip and glitter sneakers, it made the perfect outfit, even for someone who never envied Sporty Spice’s wardrobe.
Today I’m excited to share with you a new mud mask from Exuviance. I love masks in general but mud masks are one of my favorites and I always like trying new ones. I love how they detox my skin and they are great for “reset-ing” it if my skin is not cooperating. If my skin is feeling too oily or not looking as bright and fresh as I would like, a mud mask always gets it back to normal. Lucky for me, the Exuviance Detox Mud Treatment did not disappoint.
It’s funny how there are certain articles of clothing we are drawn to over and over again. For me, it’s always a good tunic top. I think it stems from growing up, when I was super tall but living in a world of low-rise jeans- it was impossible to find a top that was long enough. Now I love them to be as long as possible and frequently wear mini dresses as tops (mostly because, again- really tall). This gray draped tunic is perfect. It has plenty of length and it also happens to be super comfortable and versatile.
I love giving gifts. It’s so fun taking the time and shopping around to find the perfect gift for someone. In fact, I usually have more fun giving gifts than getting them! I tend to go a bit overboard so I always try to find the best deals on everything. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are definitely some of my biggest days for buying presents. I like to indulge my giftees and buy them fancy things versions of things so I especially love shopping the sales at places like Neiman Marcus Last Call. I was so excited when they partnered with Rakuten Affiliate Network to send me a Black Friday / Cyber Monday preview bonus box and I couldn’t wait to try everything out. Full disclosure: I loved this box and I am so excited to share all of the products with you, especially since they are all on super sale at Last Call right now! This Bonus Box was a wonderful mix of products- I got to try a variety of food, home, and fashion items that would all make awesome gifts this holiday season.
