Highlighters are one of those products that I don’t use every day but when I do I notice a big difference in my look. I tend to skip it when I run out of time but I love how a few carefully placed swipes of highlighter can add such a pretty glow. I really like to mix liquid highlighters into my foundation for a lit-from-within glow but when I want a more noticeable highlight, I always go for powders. I recently picked up the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter in Stunner as part of a Sephora promo and I’m so glad I did. It’s definitely a little flashier than most of the highlighters I’ve used but I’m having a lot of fun with it.
I just got back from visiting Stacie in Nashville and we had so much fun! I was there for a week and our days were jam-packed but it still feels like I need to go back soon because there were so many other things we didn’t get to do! Nashville is pretty easy to visit because it’s so small so it’s super easy to get around. I swear, every time we went anywhere it only took about 15 minutes. We circled the city a few times each day and ate a ridiculous amount of food. I also loved looking at all of the colorful murals around the city and I couldn’t resist using them to showcase some of my new clothes from thredUP, an online consignment shop. You’ll hear a lot more about my trip over the next few weeks, so keep checking back!
Does your skincare make you feel fancy?
I am definitely addicted to fancy beauty products. I like to be spoiled and pampered, especially when it comes to skincare, so if you tell me a product has a luxurious ingredient in it, I can’t wait to try it. D’OR 24K is a high-end skincare brand that uses real 24 karat gold in their products which not only makes me anxious to try them out, but it also does some really great things for your skin. Gold is an anti-inflammatory antioxidant that helps with circulation and reduces wrinkles and fine lines. When combined with other great ingredients, it makes your skin look fresher and younger. I recently got the chance to try the D’OR 24K Facial Peel and Multi-Vitamin Recovery Day Cream. Would they live up to my expectations?
Gingham print just screams spring and summer to me. Just looking at it makes me think of picnics and sunshine and I can’t think of a better fabric to wear when the weather starts to warm up. I haven’t owned any gingham in a while so I was super excited when I got the chance to try this gingham top from SheIn. It has a really fun shape and the black and white print is so charming, I can already tell I’m going to be wearing this all the time.
I am big into skincare. I love creamy cleansers and super hydrating moisturizers but my absolute favorite skincare products are masks. They target specific skincare concerns and they work so quickly and can make a big difference in how my skin looks. That’s why I was so excited to try the VIICode Oxygen Eye Mask for dark circles. I don’t have very dark circles but if I have to get up early or don’t get enough sleep, my eyes can definitely look dark and puffy. The VIICode Oxygen Eye Mask is designed to target dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, and bags to give your skin a more youthful look.
I’ll admit, I have a lot of clothes. Clothing is one of my favorite things to buy and my closet and dresser are both overflowing. For the most part though, I get a lot of use out of everything and tend to wear pieces for years and years until they are threadbare or totally out of style. There are definitely some basics that I reach for over and over again but most of my favorites are unique pieces that have a story behind them. I love buying clothing or jewelry as a souvenir when traveling or to wear for a special occasion and it’s so fun thinking of that trip or event when I wear it. Take this brown polka dot dress for example. I bought this when I went to New York City for the first time about 10 years ago and I still think of that trip every time I put it on.
