Day Off!

Hey guys!! My first day off in almost a week! Yay!! So of course, an outfit post was necessary! It is also a day of running a ton of errands so I needed something comfy and this look just kind of came together! I grabbed the shoes first and just went from there! Plaid shirts are always a go-to for me too...maybe it's just the Canadian in me but they are always super comfy and they are really easy to dress up!
Hope this look inspires you a little! Errand days don't always mean you have to run around in grubby clothes! Dress to impress yourself! :)

Hello Spring!

Hey guys! Just a quick little post on this super pretty Saturday! Everything is blooming and there are so many trees in our area that have pretty pink blossoms! I adore it! It makes the neighborhood 
so much prettier!
This shirt/dress is one of my latest pieces to arrive and I'm really loving it! It's definitely long enough to wear as a dress but it's fairly transparent so I would suggest wearing a white strapless body-con dress underneath or do what I did, throw a pair of skinny jeans on underneath...worked out 
just as well! I love the lace details on it...it's super feminine! 
Hope this look inspires you a little! Have an amazing weekend! Enjoy!

Wedding Skin Routine!

Hey guys!! So, my wedding is 5 months away!! Holy cow!! So now is the time to start working on the little details...which, wedding ready skin is a big part of! Everyone wants to look flawless on their big day and your skin has a big part of that! Let's face it....you are the beautiful, bushing bride people are looking at! 
So, a while back I thought I would start going for a facial every month. It was always some level of microdermabrasion or a chemical peal! I know there's always a transition period when starting something new with your skin but I couldn't deal with it! I had done three months worth and my skin was looking absolutely terrible!! So, I gave up on them and went back to my regular routine. However, I added a couple great products and tools that are making a world of difference!
Here are some of my products I've been loving!


1). Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash - I love this stuff! I had been using Cetaphil/Spectro Jel forever but was ready for something new. My face just wasn't feeling clean anymore! So I tried this face wash seeing as it seemed similar in it's simplicity for sensitive skin! It works wonderfully and I love that it actually foams up, which Cetaphil/Spectro Jel does not! It cleans and moisturizes and makes my skin feel great!

2). Clarisonic Mia - Oh my gosh, I can't tell you how much I love this thing!! I've been debating getting it forever and now I'm kicking myself for not getting it sooner! My skin has never felt so smooth and soft! I've only been using it for a week and I'm addicted to it!  It gives my face a nice little scrub and massage all at the same time! I was debating between the original, the mia 2 and the 3! Considering your skin is a super sensitive part of you, I decided to go for the original! I decided the higher speeds really wouldn't do my skin any good! Which, I'm glad I did...the mia definitely gets the job done perfectly!


3). Murad Acne Spot Fix - This stuff is a dream! I've never had great skin and definitely still get the occasional spot! This spot correcter is a magic wand! It fixes and lightens the area at the same time. It's wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone! 

4). Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion - Wow, what a lotion! I've only been using this stuff for a couple weeks now but it's incredible! I've noticed a minor difference in my skin so far but the difference is wonderful and definitely in the direction I want my skin to be heading! Just creates a more smooth and even skin tone! I would not suggest using this as a day cream....only a night cream! I find it a little too oily as a day cream!

*Not seen in these photos...I have also added Murad's Acne Clearing Concealer Stick! I use it every day! Not only does it helps fight trouble areas but it covers wonderfully!!

*On a side note....Murad is my new favorite skin line! It's amazing...I definitely want to try more of their products! For those who have "trouble" skin and acne, try not too use too many acne focused products! Sometimes they dry your skin out and make your skin worse! When your skin is too dry your natural oils work on overdrive to stay moist, which creates more oil and trouble zones in the long wrong! Keep your skin moisturized! Find a moisturizer that works right for you! 


5). Puritans Pride - I use their retinol cream and collagen and placenta night creme! These moisturizers I use only once or twice a week! I like mixing up my products now that I know what works with my skin! I figure every product adds a little something your skin needs, so mix it up! My skin gets bored with routine so I like to keep it fresh!

6).  Vivite Night Renewal Cream - I swear by this stuff! I've been using it for over a year now and I love it! I've changed how often I use it. I like to use it once or twice a week instead of every night! It just freshens up your face and helps turn over those dead skin cells to show off that new skin underneath!

*Another tool I've added to my skin routine that isn't pictured here is a Tweezerman Skin Care Tool which can be found: HERE!
I use it for blackheads, whiteheads and pesky zits that are ready to pop without using your hands which usually have dirt on them and can infect the area and make things worse!


Last but not least....sunscreen!! Keep away those dark spots and keep those cancerous tans to a minimum! 

7). Skin Ceuticals - Tinted sunscreen! This stuff is great as it acts as foundation and evens out your skin while also defending it from the harsh rays of the sun!

8). Neutrogena - Sensitive Sunscreen! I've started using the highest SPF possible! When I was younger, I use to love a good tan but now I'm all about keeping myself as pasty white as possible! Especially trying to reducing my dark spots and freckles! Let's face it...skin cancer is no joke! Keep your skin healthy! This sunscreen is amazing especially for my sensitive skin! This stuff doesn't make me breakout at all!

Hope this helps your with your skin care routine...even if it's not for your big day! You always want your skin at it's best! :)

Preppy!

Hey guys!! Finally!! An outfit post!! Haha, I know it's been a while. I'm finally starting to feel better! It's been a busy week too on the wedding planning end! We booked our florist, day of coordinator and are almost finalized with our cater! Wahoo!! So close to having the big pieces booked and finalized! It's super exciting! Then down to the little details! 
I wasn't actually planning on posting this look but it was such a nice evening out when I got home from work that I captured it anyways! I was laughing when I put this entire outfit on because I looked like something straight out of a J Crew ad! Super preppy, casual and comfy! I wished I was heading to the beach instead of work in it! Anyways, hope you like it! Enjoy!

Firmoo Glasses!

Hey guys!! So, first off....another amazing pair of glasses from Firmoo!! I am so in love with these! They have that nerdy black-frame styling but still super fashionable! I can't tell you how much I love this company...for me, I know what kind of frames suit my face so I have no problem picking a pair of glasses out online! Their glasses are SO affordable too! I feel like I can afford to have a collection of glasses from them without breaking the bank! Sadly, I haven't had time to do an outfit shoot with them yet. The last couple weeks have been totally crazy between being sick, work trips, ski trips and to top everything off my fiance broke both bones in his ankle as is currently in surgery as I type this putting in plates and screws! Boo! The worst. So, I will be doing a shoot with them tomorrow! Make sure you check back to see what look I create with these!! Hope you like them! Enjoy!
