After seemingly months of being drawn to nothing but neutrals – I’m suddenly craving rich, vivid color. Since it’s officially spring now (feel free to catch up any time now weather), I think it’s officially time to indulge. First up on my radar – marigold yellow. Try wearing this color – in a breezy eyelet top, swinging pom earrings or cool suede sneakers – and not feeling happy.. I dare you.
In 2017 one of my goals was to really get serious about my beauty regime. I turn 30 in a couple of months and felt like it was high time I ditched some of the random drugstore hair & skincare products that I’d been using without any real direction in favor of a few more quality products that I’ve truly put to the test. Below – the top 12 products I’ve been using daily and loving these past few months. If you have more specific questions feel free to reach out!

I have lots of fine hair – which means it tangles easily, plus fall flats and attract static in the winter. So I rely on lots of product that add volume and texture (in the Summer the humidity helps do this naturally). Lately I’ve been shampooing with this Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, towel drying then adding a small handful of this Mousse and a quick spray of this Thickening Tonic. Then I blow dry and use this Texturizing Spray before styling along with this Paste for touch-ups. Later in the day (or for second day hair) I use this Dry Shampoo later in the day.
I have combination skin (sometimes oily, sometimes dry) – that tends towards the super dry in the winter. On my body, I’ve been exfoliating twice a week with this Body Polish and using this moisturizing Deodorant. On my face, I’ve been using this Daily Superfoliant every evening to clear my skin of the day’s pollutants, then following with this Serum 1-2 per week and this Moisturizer both day and night. And a few times a month I use this Eye and Face Maskto look fresh faced after a late night or early morning.
Spring.. so close yet so far. I figured since most of the East Coast is digging itself out from under a mountain of snow today, it was a good time to share an easy way to add freshen up your wardrobe no matter then weather – spring pastels.
I’ve been eyeing overalls for more seasons than I’d like to admit at this point. On cool girls in coffee shops, on Pinterest, everyone was pulling them off with ease. But for some reason I felt like on me they’d be all wrong. But then I reminded myself that I tried wide leg chinos recently to happy results and so I finally decided to give it a go. This pairwas less than $40 and as evidenced here – we’re getting along just fine.
I recently picked up this embroidered detail blouse and when I went to find it online for you all realized that it had quickly sold out (the one shoulder version or dress version are still available though). After searching ‘stripe off the shoulder top’ to find something similar, approximately 1 million cute options appeared. It’s worth stating – this look is having a major moment. Since I’ve already got this one, I’m not sure that I can indulge in another, but you all should take full advantage of the plethora of affordable options. Here – just a few:
