Thirsty Skin!

Hello! So at this time of the year our skin tends to get a bit of dry or if you’re me extremely dry. I believe that healthy skin is beautiful skin which means during these harsher weather months you need to be HYDRATING! One of the first steps to ensuring your skin stays dewy and fresh you need to be using a face wash with the right ingredients. Just because it say’s it will hydrate your skin doesn’t mean it really will. Here are my top 5 favorite hydrating facial washes. Thanks for reading. Xoxo. 

  1. Glamglow Thirsty Cleanse $39 at Sephora.  It contains Brazilian yellow clay to help to remineralize the skin, pure green coconut water to immediately boost skin for intense hydration, olive milk rich in olive lipids and proteins to replenish skin, and plumeria flower blossom extract rich in omega 3, 6, and 9 to restore the skin barrier function. Indian gooseberry revitalizes and restores natural skin clarity. It will leave your skin feeling looking feeling beautiful.
  2. Boscia Tsubaki Cleansing Oil Gel $28 at Sephora. This cleansing oil hydrates and replenishes, leaving skin silky smooth. A signature, lightweight botanical blend of tsubaki oil (camellia oil), wakame (Japanese sea kelp), and rice bran oil hydrates, smooths, and protects for the appearance of firm, youthful skin.
  3. Fresh Soy Face Cleanser $38 at Sephora. The Soy Face Cleanser from Fresh instantly whisks away everyday impurities and makeup—even mascara—without stripping the skin of essential moisture. Rich in amino acids, soy proteins support moisture retention, giving skin the appearance of elasticity and firmness while rosewater balances and tones the skin
  4. NARS Gentle Cream Cleanser $29 at Sephora.-This creamy, moisture-rich formula helps maintain skin’s moisture balance while removing makeup and impurities. Formulated with NARS exclusive Light Reflecting Complex™, Gentle Cream Cleanser contains wild rose extract, chamomile, and monoi oil, a natural oil known for its hydrating and moisturizing abilities.
  5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Rich Cream Cleanser $32 at Sephora. This rich and creamy cleanser is formulated with rich emollients and an enriched mineral water blend, and its avocado butter infusion of jojoba, avocado, and grape seed oils leaves skin with a cushiony, comfortable feel. Ideal for normal to extra-dry skin types, it gently and effectively removes impurities so that skin still appears soft, smooth, and supple.

Holiday Hair!

Hello! As with the transition from fall to winter came I decided that my hair also needed to transition with the climate change…I decided to do  the balayage hair technique. It is super flattering, natural looking, and looks good all year around. You still need to use shampoo for color treated hair and heat protectors. With balayage it grows out beautifully and looks natural which means less visits to the salon and helps save money! I recommend this look for anyone who wants to change up their hair color but does not want a high maintenance look. Thank you for reading! Xoxo.

Fall Flavor!

Happy Friday! Lately I have been gravitating towards longer nails, with a bit of a pointed shape, and lighter shades. Lighter colors are chic, work appropriate, and sexy in a understated way.

For fall, lighter shades of brown, grey, and pinks are the perfect hues to go on your beautiful hands and toes. Dark reds, dark blues, and dark purples are beautiful colors to wear when you start transitioning your look from fall to winter. Have a beautiful and safe weekend everyone! Thanks for reading. Xoxo.

Thought of the Day.

“The world can be a scary place, it can hurt you, it can create situations where you feel as if you are losing yourself. There are times in life where you will find yourself fighting to find yourself among all the pain. This is when you will become strong and through all that heartache you will find your strength. That strength will mold you into the person you are meant to become. Don’t let the anger and hurt of the past make you bitter..let that anger make your heart so strong that all it will feel is happiness and compassion. Our past should not be an excuse to be angry and mean however our past should stand for perseverance. Become that person who brings goodness and purity into the world. Vow to yourself that you will make this world a better place because at the end of the day we only answer to ourselves at night.” -Soloni Behl

Viva Las Vegas!

Hello! I have been asked to write a post on how I would dress if I was on vacation at a resort in Las Vegas. I had a blast building outfits in my head and then bringing them to life on my blog. Enjoy the post! And as usual thanks for reading. Xoxo.

One of the best parts about taking a vacation in my opinion is the clothes…obviously. That thrill you get when you pack your new pieces that you’re so excited to wear on your trip (most likely will be posted on social media somewhere) is so fun! But the only downside is you don’t want to over pack or pay any heavy baggage fees so what’s fashionista to do?! This is where mixing and matching and buying versatile clothes comes in handy!

You want your outfit to take you from day to night seamlessly. It is important to remember accessories are the best way to change any outfit from casual to dressy.You start out your day having lunch at Lemongrass in the Aria so you want your look to balance casual yet sophisticated. You spend a few hours at the spa and walking around the city in the day time so you can keep your accessories from lunch on. Than as you ease into evening you change your accessories for dinner at the Lago than finally as night arrives you add in a red lip, some sexy smudged eyeliner, statement pieces and viola you are ready for a night of dancing at Voodoo Rooftop Nightclub at the Rio.
