Happy Friday!

Yay almost the weekend!! It has been a downpourrrr in NYC today though so we’ll see about those weekend plans haha.

I’ve always been a fan of the shirtdress, mostly because you can wear it as a shirt and a dress haha and this one from Tobi.com is soooo easy to throw on and instantly look super cute. Since it’s been pretty chilly in nyc lately I’ve been finding myself putting it on with jeans and a cute jacket, which is another look I love: long tops! Definitely with skinny jeans or leggings, and if you’re not super tall, some sort of lifted shoe. Pieces that are long on your body can be a bit unflattering if you are on the shorter side, but heels are always flattering no matter what! Thats the motto.

See you on Monday! :)

Happy Monday!

Omg I am soooo happy it is finally May!! I feel like April is always weirdly stressful haha.

When I worked at Club Monaco I would always make women try on culottes. I would seriously get the same response all the time, that they liked how the culottes looked on the mannequin, but didn’t think that they could pull it off themselves. Once they tried them on though their outlook completely changed. Every time. Culottes are too comfy and cute not to take advantage of them!

I love love these ones from Tobi. They’re so flattering and go with everything. Some tips for wearing culottes: try and wear a shoe with a heel to give yourself an elongated look so the pants don’t cut off your legs, wear something tighter on top to counterbalance the big flowy-ness of the pant, and try and keep your waist as slimmed as possible so the pants can be super flattering!

Tobi.com def has some really cute tops and shoes to go with their culottes, plus they always have amazing deals on their site!

See you Wednesday :)

Skincare Cover.1

1. Clearogen
clearogen

I was introduced to Clearogen by one of my friends and I super love it. They have a 3-step step system for acne-prone skin: a cleanser, a toner, and this acne lotion. Since my skin is not the most acne-prone I use the Acne Lotion once a day after washing my face and before moisturizing; sometimes twice a day when my skin is not the best haha. If you have acne-prone skin or even just occasional acne I definitely recommend!

2. Enzyme Cleansing Oil + Makeup Remover

cleanser

Ever since I started getting monthly facials at Heyday in NYC I have completely overhauled my skincare routine. I discovered that my skin reacts soooo much better to products that are all natural. I’m super sensitive to everything so I don’t know why I didn’t realize this before! This cleansing oil is so nice you rub it on your face dry so it takes off your makeup (even though I do use a makeup remover wipe for my eyes). Then you wet your fingers with warm water and rub the oil into your skin and it becomes kind of milky and after that you rinse! It also smells sooo good. Love this cleanser.

3. Daily Ultimate Protection Moisturizer

moisturizer

So when I do need a little help from chemicals and other non-natural formulas its in the form of sunscreen (and acne lotion haha). I love that this moisturizer doubles as an intense sunscreen. We all know that the sun is the number one cause of almost everything that happens to your face as you get older haha and I’m at even more of a risk since I am so fair! I put this moisturizer on as my last step of my skincare routine. It’s not super oily and it smells sooo good too. Whether you have a dark complexion or super fair like me, you definitely need sunscreen!

4. Anti-wrinkle Emulsion

anti-wrinkle

Even though I am still young it’s never too early to start preparing your skin for wrinkles! And I get so many gray hairs already I’m sure my wrinkles will come early too (thanks mom haha). First of all I loooove this brand. I was first introduced to it when I still lived in LA a few years ago by my dermatologist there! Its a French brand so it’s kind of hard to come across – I ordered this off Amazon. Any of their products are great but I use this one on my forehead and around my eyes after the acne lotion and before moisturizing :)

5. Regenerating Night Cream

night cream

This night is probably the most expensive skincare product I own but it’s also one of my favorites. I also discovered this brand Grown Alchemist through Heyday and again, their products are all natural which I love. This cream is so thick and nice I look forward to putting it on every night. Its has tons of active peptides and antioxidants that will be great for your skin’s texture as it regenerates while you sleep. Although it’s a bit on the pricey side it’s probably the best night cream I’ve come across in a while. Loooove.

6. Microderma Scrub + Masque

scrub

Okay guys best for last. I am obsesseddddd with this scrub. What it is, is a bottle of powder and there’s a ton of things you can do with the powder to exfoliate. You can mix it in with your regular moisturizer and exfoliate that way or you can create a mask which is what I do. Usually I’ll mix the powder with a bit of water to create a paste and I use that paste as a mask. I’ll leave it on for about 15 minutes, and after my skin feels sooooo smooth and rejuvenated. I try and do this mask 3-4 times a week. There’s other suggestions for different types of masks too like you can mix the powder with honey or greek yogurt depending on what your skin needs. I love how you can incorporate this scrub into anything and make it into different products. Definitely definitely a must.

Happy Wednesday Trendsday!!

Today is all about the Drybar. Last week I went in to get a blowout and attend Alli Webb‘s signing for her new book Good Hair For All. I’ve been a huge fan of the Drybar for a while now. When I lived in LA I used to go in at least a couple times a week!!

My hair is so thick and frizzy that sometimes I just want someone else to do it so I don’t have to worry about it haha. That’s exactly what the Drybar is there to do. If you just don’t feel like doing your hair, if you have an important interview or a big event, or feel like treating yourself, you definitely need to visit the Drybar.

But the thing that reeeeally hooked me at the Drybar is the smell!! Oh my gosh it smells amazing in there and so do all of their products. I loved the smell so much that I had to get a few different products just so I could take the smell home with me haha.

The whole salon is themed like a bar with cute drink-themed names for everything. It’s adorable and so welcoming when you walk in and everyone is of course super nice!!

The last thing that I really loved about the Drybar was the fact that it was founded and run by an amazing entrepreneur. I am a life long supporter of women who are incredible business people while at the same time raising beautiful kids and maintaining a family. That is a task that few can conquer and I truly admire Alli for doing just that.

She was so so sweet and kind when we met and I was so grateful to chat with her for a few minutes! And I love love her book; it is just as cute and friendly and nice as a visit to the Drybar! It offers so many great tips and tricks for the perfect blowout at home along with some super cute stories about Alli and how she found the Drybar.

Seriously treat yourself to a visit at the Drybar. They have tons of locations all throughout the country so I’m sure there is one near you!! I already can’t wait for my next visit.

See you Friday!!
