Wedding Planning Update: Photographer, Engagement Shoot, DJ & more!

Hey everyone! Wow I can't believe how fast this year is going, it is seriously crazy! There are now only 5 months until our wedding day, or 150 days. I am starting to freak out a little because it really feels like everything is happening so fast and I have so many things going on at once. I have five weeks until the Bar exam (July 27th and 28th) and then after that we will only have three months until the wedding. Ahhhh!!!!

Daily Moisturizers for Oily Skin

Hello lovelies! Today we're going to be talking about one of my favorite topics ever: skincare! Specifically, daily moisturizers for oily skin. If you have oily skin, you may think that you don't need to moisturize and that it will only make your skin oilier. That would be a mistake!! Moisturizing every morning will actually help your skin to not over-produce oil, which is what it does when it gets too dry. Read on if you want to learn about some of my favorite moisturizers that I use for my oily skin.

Life Update: Wedding Plannning, etc!

Hey guys! Today I thought I'd write a little blog post updating you on my life currently. I know I've been seriously MIA the past couple of months and I feel awful about it. It's my last year of law school so things have been seriously crazy! Not to mention I am planning a wedding! Yes that's right, Alex and I officially set a date. We are getting married this November 14th!! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!! :) :)

Hey guys!! Today I wanted to write a quick post and update you guys about my current SPF routine because I've found a couple of new sunscreens that I am really excited about and wanted to share with you.

Hautelook Haul + Tips for Jewelry Scavenging on Hautelook!!

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you my latest Hautelook jewelry haul, as well as a few tips for finding quality jewelry at a low price on Hautelook that I've developed over time! My friend Casey and I are pretty much obsessed with Hautelook. In case you don't know, its a really cool online store which posts new sales every day at 11 am. You have to be a member to gain access to the sales (its free to join!) and you have to be fast, because things sell out quick!

Enjoy!

bareMinerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation!!

Hey guys! Today I want to talk to you about my latest obsession that I have been using nonstop since I bought it, the new BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation by bareMinerals! I was so excited when I found out that bareMinerals was coming out with a liquid foundation, and even more intrigued that it was going to be a SERUM liquid foundation, as I had never heard of that before. There are several serum foundations now, which I think is great. There really was something missing on the spectrum of liquid foundations that serum foundations have filled, lighter than a regular liquid foundation but more pigmented then a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. Read on to hear my thoughts on the serum foundation that started the craze!

Affordable Antioxidant Serums: Desert Essence Pomegranate Face Serum and Trader Joe's Antioxidant Facial Serum

Hello ladies! Today I am going to be talking about two affordable antioxidant serums that I am trying at the moment. As you know, antioxidants are a skincare ESSENTIAL (read my in-depth post on antioxidants to learn more). Unfortunately, a lot of antioxidant serums that are sold at certain stores (ahem, Sephora!) are super expensive. At the end of the day, you don't need to be spending huge amounts of money to get your antioxidant fix. As long you buy a serum with stable antioxidants, effective packaging, and you store it in a dark, room-temperature location, you will reap the benefits. I recently found these two serums that I want to tell you about because they both have a really good blend of antioxidants (remember, combinations are better) and are SUPER affordable. Plus, they are all-natural, which is always a good thing!
