Lightbox | Lab-Grown Diamonds for Every Occasion

Posted on Location: 1 m read

***Special thanks to Lightbox for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

Iโ€™ve always been one to keep it pretty simple when it comes to jewelry. Recently, I discovered Lightbox, an online retailer offering laboratory-grown diamonds that are just as sparkly and pretty as natural diamonds. In fact, they even share the same physical, optical, and chemical properties! I was intrigued by what Lightbox has to offer, and got myself a gorgeous halo 3/4 carat blue pendant necklace. It pairs beautifully with literally anything I choose to wear for the day. There is nothing quite like putting on my outfit and having my jewelry match effortlessly, every time.

Caught in the Midst of a Desert Storm

Last week, temperatures finally dropped below 100 degrees and we were confronted with a desert storm! We rarely get cloudy days out here, so naturally, David and I were pretty excited about it. Don’t get me wrong – I am totally a sunshine kinda’ gal, but a change of scenery is refreshing every once in a while. Plus, clouds can really make photos look more dramatic and interesting! We decided to drive out to Salton Sea to watch the sunset and it was a very beautiful night. There was even some thunder & lightning.

Embroidered Moto Jackets to Buy This Fall

Though far from the typical desert-chic style, I’ve always appreciated a good moto jacket. I picked up a stunning embroidered moto jacket by BLANK NYC at my local Marshalls recently and can’t get enough of it. The best part is, it was only $80 (retail $175)! The stud detailing adds a nice edgy touch, while the embroidery balances the look out with the perfect amount of femme florals and a splash of color. If you’re looking to invest in an embroidered moto jacket this fall, check out some of my favorites below!

The $8 Sleeveless Military Dress I Thrifted from Goodwill

On one of my weekly thrift store trips earlier this month, I scored this sleeveless military dress for just $8 at Goodwill in La Quinta. You might have seen my recent post about how much I love the olive color for fall. This dress is no exception, and the styling options are endless! Since it’s still pretty hot out, I haven’t quite pulled out my leggings to wear underneath just yet… but you can bet I will in a few months!

It’s so hard to believe that we just had our very last summer weekend of 2018! In less than a week, it will officially be fall… even though it feels far from that in Palm Springs. It is still well over 100 degrees during the day, but I’m thankful that we at least get cooler mornings and nights now. As I continue to transition my wardrobe for the new season, I’ve been adding a lot of olive green pieces. It’s such a staple color to wear during the cooler months! If you adore all things olive like me, you’ll LOVE my favorite picks in this shade for autumn ๐Ÿ™‚

One-Year Anniversary with Clarins Double Serum

***Special thanks to Clarins for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

This time last year, I started using the Double Serum by Clarins and instantly fell in love! I am excited to share that after a year of consistent use, I still love it as much as I did on day one. If you haven’t had the chance to try it yet, this holy grail is a two-in-one serum infused with turmeric extract and 20 other skin-loving plant ingredients. Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory and soothing properties make it beneficial for the body both inside and out. Needless to say, Double Serum is one of the best treats I’ve given my skin in my 20’s, and I know I’ll be using #MyDoubleSerum, my skincare hero, for many years to come.

My most recent thrifting trip to Angel View in Palm Desert on Highway 111, again, did not disappoint. I practically thrifted this entire outfit for under $25!ย The only thing not thrifted were the boots, which I’ve had for a while now. Can you believe it?! The thrifting scene is at least 10x better than the shopping scene out here in the Coachella Valley. I can’t believe it took me a year to get into it. I am so late – but better late than never, right?

If there was one makeup style I had to wear for the rest of my life, it would be the good ol’ smokey eye. As much as I’m all for embracing natural beauty, the “no makeup-makeup look” is a bit plain on me. If you haven’t noticed, I’m wearing a smokey eye in almost all my photos. I feel like it really helps to not only bring out my eyes, but the rest of my facial features too. Some may call me high-maintenance for putting on a smokey eye every time I do my makeup. However, after years of practice, I’ve definitely picked up on techniques to perfect that everyday smokey eye efficiently. If you’re looking to master a classic smokey eye in time for the fall and winter months, it’s time to stock up on some staple eye products and follow these 5 simple steps.

5 Closet Staples for a Seamless Summer to Fall Transition

Posted on 74 Comments

As we inch closer to September, it’s time to reorganize our closets and stow away some summer styles to make room for our beloved fall pieces. I must say that transitioning from one season to the next is not a totally big deal for most Californians, especially for desert dwellers like myself. Honestly, I wear summer clothing probably 90% of the time throughout the year because the average December temperature in Palm Springs is still a pretty comfortable 70 degrees. I do get cold easily though – so there’s that… anything below 75 calls for having layers on hand and ready to wear. Have you begun your wardrobe refresh in time for fall yet? Tackle the warm days & chilly nights with these 5 summer-to-fall staples that will ensure a seamless transition into the new season!
