Glowing Skin with Lionesse Gem Skin Care’s Morganite Collection

Finding an esthetician I really love in our new neighborhood has honestly been a huge challenge for me. While I have tried a few in the area, I haven’t found one that I connect with on a personal level, and one that delivers quality services at reasonable prices. Not only do frequent facials add up quickly, sometimes the idea of having to brave the heat for a while in the car as I make my way to an esthetician deters me. First world problems for someone living in the desert… I know! With that said, I have been extra proactive with home care when it comes to my face and neck. As I approach my 30’s, it has become super important for me to take all the preventative measures I can to halt the aging process. This involves staying consistent with a solid routine, and using quality products. Today, I’ll be sharing more aboutΒ Lionesse Gem Skin Care’s Morganite Collection, which has been a pivotal part of my home care routine at night, helping me achieve balance and a healthy glow!

I Got a New Bike! (& Things to Consider When Buying a Cruiser)

Posted on 61 Comments

After moving into our new house, David and I talked about buying bikes to get around locally because our community is extremely beautiful and bike-friendly. We spent plenty of time shopping around and even buying bikes we ended up not happy with. It was so hard for me to choose one because I saw many pretty ones online that were Insta-worthy but when it came time to actually riding them, most were quite off in terms of practicality. Ultimately, I wanted a cruiser that was not only cute for photos, but also practical. At the end of the day, that’s what a bike is for, right? It’s supposed to take you around where you need to go, with ease!

My Recent Chanel Beauty Empties

If there’s one beauty brand that I’ve been loyal to since my early make-up days, it’s Chanel. Well, to be fair, you can’t go wrong with Chanel anything… but their beauty products have definitely remained consistently exceptional over the years. Last week, I had to make a Nordstrom trip to replenish part of my collection, and thought I’d share my recent Chanel beauty empties that I obviously love and swear by! I don’t know if it’s just me, but I have trouble throwing away empty bottles that are pretty. After I took my flatlay, my boyfriend had to ask me, “are these just empty bottles?!” Haha. I’m convinced that I’ll collect all my Chanel empties and make my own little art piece with them someday… not a terrible idea, right?

Dermarise Skin Care Must-Haves this Season & Beyond

Growing up, I’ve always been a fan of Asian beauty products. I recently discovered Japanese brand, Dermarise, available at Tohomart. Dermarise has been developed & sold in Japan in high-end salons for more than 10 years, and is well-acclaimed by celebrities today. Lately, I’ve been loving their Cyclic Serum P.A. & Cyclic Cream c-PA. A quality serum and moisturizer are two staples my skin care routine cannot live without! Though I’ve tried many serums and moisturizers in my lifetime, these definitely stand at the top of my ‘favorites’ list.

Summer Travels with Steamline Luggage

If you’ve been following along on my Instagram stories for the past month or so, you’ll have seen that we’ve been working hard on decorating our rustic-vintage guest bedroom (inspired by the Airbnb we stayed at in New York recently). We’ve been doing plenty of local thrifting to score unique finds, but ultimately, I think my Steamline LuggageΒ completes the vintage vibe of the room. Who doesn’t love luggage that’s not only visually appealing, but also fun to take along on trips? David & I had our 4 year anniversary last week, but we’ll be celebrating later this month somewhere cooler to escape this desert heat. Cannot wait to travel in style with my new babies!

Flower of the Future: Alien Flora Futura

C. Joybell C. once said, “you’re never fully dressed without perfume.” A good one, that is. I’ve always resonated with this quote because I believe that the perfume a woman wears speaks volumes about her personality! Today, I wanted to share with you a spring/summer fragrance that I’ve been loving lately. It’s the flower of the future, better known as Mugler’s Alien Flora Futura. It’s a relatively new one that became available in April of this year. Personally, I’m an avid lover of perfumes with floral notes, but I also appreciate ones with just the right amount of zest. Alien Flora Futura is just that and more — and I’m so excited to get into the details!

16 Straw Bags to Carry Now

Beach days, picnics, tropical getaways… wherever you’re headed this summer, straw bags are classic staples in every fashionista’s closet — especially for the warmer months upon us. They add plenty of personality and fun flair to even the simplest looks. Recently, I bought two new straw bags (girl’s gotta treat herself after all the stress with moving)! Specifically, I got one in a tote style which you may have seen in my last blog post, and a slouchy one that can be worn as a shoulder bag or a backpack depending on the occasion! For this look, I’m wearing it as a shoulder bag πŸ™‚

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, babes! My apologies for being absent on the blog – we have been super swamped moving into our new house this month. Hopefully we will get back on our usual groove soon! In the mean time, I wanted to share this cute linen dress I found at Marshalls recently. It’s perfect for this weekend’s festivities and beyond, especially in the summer!

Accessorizing My Summer Looks with Baenteli’s Fine Jewelry

With the temperatures consistently exceeding 100 degrees, it’s no doubt that summer has arrived in the desert. In efforts to stay cool and comfortable in the sweltering heat, I’ve been wearing dresses and flowy silhouettes more than ever. Transitioning into warm weather attire also means accessorizing more to complete my look. I typically prefer to keep it light with jewelry; afterall, less is more! Just the right amount of bling can really take the outfit notches up in elegance. Lately, I’ve been loving Swiss fine jeweler, Baenteli’s stunning jewels.

Why Every Traveler Should Own a Miniature Backpack

Packing light has always been a bit of a struggle for me, especially when headed somewhere cold. Winter clothing is much bulkier than the clothes I’m used to wearing out in the desert. This restricts me from bringing a whole lot. On my recent trip to New York City, my luggage was pretty stuffed with thick jackets & sweaters, so there wasn’t much room left for other accessories. In fact, I was only able to bring one bag. Can you guess what it was? A miniature backpack! It was my best travel companion (aside from David of course). Together, we explored the city and hiked in the suburbs.

5 Simple Ways to Rock the Palazzo Pant Trend

Posted on 80 Comments

Palazzo pants have been popping up everywhere, and for good reason! While I initially thought this trend would look absurd on me, I am surprisingly obsessed with it now. When styled properly, palazzo pants can be super flattering and extremely comfy. This is a huge bonus especially for a desert dweller like myself. The temperatures are consistently going into the hundreds these days, which means light and airy bottoms are a must.
