Bobbi Brown // My Morning Routine

Monday, January 11, 2016


One of my goals this year is to take better care of my skin. Aging is going to happen but doing small things to improve and slow the process is so important. That can mean a million different things to anyone. However I want to be open and honest about what I am doing and what works for me.


Utah is a harsh dry climate and I noticed a few months back that my skin felt tight and dry. Making the fine lines stand out more. I had a small sample from one of those birch boxes of a Bobbi Brown moisturizer, so I used it. To be honest I don't even remember what it was at the time but after it was gone and I went back to my other stuff I right off noticed that my skin was not a smooth and pretty. Obviously I wanted more of the fountain of youth so I high tailed to my nearest BB counter to find out more on her line. Well played Birch Box well played.



After spending some time with the Bobbi Brown team we decided on a routine to moisturize and bring life back into my skin. After 3 months now I feel confident that these products have really improved my face and I want to share. [Each image is a link to learn more about them]



First I put the EXTRA on allover my clean dry face. It feels like a thin Aloe Vera and is meant to hold in your skins natural moisture. 





Full disclosure, truth is I have never used a serum until now. I know, I know! But that said this is amazing! Seriously. The. End.





Not only does this smooth the fine lines, but it has a little caffeine so it wakes up the sleepy eyes. I keep it in my purse to so I can dab it on when I look a little tired. AKA all the time! 



I love the all in one moisturizer. My SPF and Face Cream combined in a winner. And this one is SPF25 which is a lot higher than most combo's I've seen. You only have one face ladies, protect it!



There you have it. My daily routine. Let me know what ya'll think!

Faux Fringe + Top Knot // A tutorial

Monday, December 7, 2015


It's no secret that Kendall Jenner was the best dressed at the AMAS. Her top knot and fringe had me speed dialing my stylist to cut my hair immediately.....but my husband would absolutely kill me if I cut bangs again. You see he has survived the brutal war of me trying to grow them back out, not once but twice. It was ugly friends. If you have ever grown fringe out you can relate. 

But oh I want it.


After doing some major googling I discovered that its was FAUX!!! And we can recreate the look with out taking a pair to the face, if you get the drift.


Check out how easy this is to do! I tried it last night to verify that it was do-able...we are in girls! Have at it!

Just say the word dainty and you have our full attention. It's not much different when it comes to constellations, and this trend of delicate jems and designs has us all buzzing.




These new Flash Tattoos are amazing. What I wouldn't give to get a real metallic tat! Is that even possible yet??

We pretty much adore them as earrings.....


 
And then of course our entire collection of dainty rings. Come see your sign in the boutique by clicking here!

FLORIDA RECAP

Wednesday, October 28, 2015


I spent last weekend in Orlando Florida at the IZEAFEST, a social media conference with my dearest friend Sadie of SimplySadieJane. What a fun weekend! Full of great info and of course lots of relaxing, chatting and shopping! The conference was so close to Walt Disney World so you better believe we spent some time riding my favorite ride Tower of Terror!


We even spent the evening on a Yacht party sponsored by Mercury watching a private showing of the WDW fireworks. I hung out with the Pinterest king Dan Ashbach of Dan330.  Dude pins like a pro, and is so funny to chat with!


I think if I had to pick a favorite part it was the Blue Harmony Spa. I mean you can never go wrong right? Plus it was pumpkin facials and massage, very fitting for the season. They are so sweet there and have such a soothing and relaxing atmosphere. If you find yourself in Orlando do stop in.


Relaxing poolside in hammocks was the perfect ending. Although we did not make it to the beach, insert crying emoji face, our resort had white sandy beaches and lake front so that's pretty darn close.


             

My swim suit is by the amazing Marysia Swim, who I pretty much want every suit she makes. Go check out her new resort collection. TO. DIE. FOR.


My bag coming home barley made the cut because I did a little damage at the mall, but who could blame me??? The mustard sweater got adopted and is currently being worn with all my closet. Grab one at Urban Outfitters, you will not regret it.


Until next time Florida....until next time.

Styling your Shabby Chic pieces with Chairish

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Hey friends, I have teamed up Chairish.com to show you all how easy it is to incorporate your "shabby chic" pieces into any style you like.

When it comes to decorating the all matching look is over! Creating a room that seamlessly blends a variety of styles is the way to go. Most trends go in and out of fashion, so don't get stuck in the loop of buying the latest thing. Really fall in love with choices....those will be things that last!

"Shabby chic" has been around for over 25 years, we all own pieces. There are many styles that would be considered shabby chic. From the really chippy layered dressers to a more historical french hutch.  It really is a timeless look, but with a little blending you can create a more modern aesthetic. In the spirit of style I worked with a few historical elements from Chairish and streamed them with more modern pieces to create a carefully curated room.
