A weekly series dedicated to everything from life, travel and fashion Q&A, sale finds, weekend updates, sneak peeks and more!
A little travel, life and fashion Q&A. I want to answer them ALL.
I saw you went for a facial at Skin Laundry. How did you like it? I’ve heard about it before, but never booked an appointment.
YES! I’ve been a few times, and I love it! My sister actually introduced me to Skin Laundry about a year ago, but I had never made an effort to go either. I looked it up and realized that the first time was free, which is a major incentive! My skin definitely feels lighter and tighter, and that’s really what I’m looking for. I’m not the best at taking care of my skin, so I figured this was a good place to start! Highly recommend — I’m actually going tonight!
How do you manage your blog and job? I find myself struggling to do both.
Same here, girl! It’s definitely a continued work in progress for me. Some days are certainly better than others. I wrote this post here, and I hope it helps!
A mini-gift guide to help inspire you to give to your loved ones!
Next up, that special guy on your list with these gift ideas for him. Whether it’s your dad, your boyfriend, husband, brother, in laws, etc., these gift ideas for him would work for them all! For me, shopping for my dad, Matt and my brother in law is the hardest. My dad and Matt are so picky and Chris is just open to basically anything at all.
Here’s what I’m loving, buying and eyeing!
I know it’s the season of giving to others, but sometimes I can’t help but shop for myself! Over the last week, I picked up a few goodies for myself. I scored this amazing sherpa jacket on eBay (of all places). My only complaint is that is does shed a bit, so that’s pretty annoying — I learned my lesson the hard way when I was wearing all black. Still love it though!
After getting some outfit shoots in, I popped into Sephora. I picked up this new NARS product that I’m SO excited to check out. I feel like liquid lipstick is a new trend, and heard great things about this one. Then I wandered over to the skincare section and picked up some recommended products from First Aid Beauty. After seeing Arielle’s collaboration with them, they’ve been on my radar. And then Elle raved about how she loved her moisturizer. So I picked that up along with the lip balm. I’m excited to see results (hopefully) since my skin gets SO dry in the winter.
Weekend plans, anyone?
For whatever reason, I don’t really want to do much this weekend. It’s supposed to be getting colder and I kind of just want to sit in by the fireplace and do nothing. Sometimes that’s my favorite thing to do. Matt and I are trying to think of fun things to do though, maybe bowling or something. BUT who knows.
What are you plans for the weekend? Anything fun? Or are you just going to hang too?
