A Recent Health Kick, Some Thoughts on Body Love & A Life Update!

Oh hello there! I promise I’m still alive – just took a little break from social media and the blog for a bit to recharge and focus on taking better care of myself the past month or so. As a content creator, it can be hard to not get caught up in work and not be on my phone 24/7. With that said, I really wanted to try putting my phone down and just live in the moment, something I hadn’t done in a long time. During my break, I checked Instagram minimally (this was hard at first but now that I’ve done it, I actually love not being glued to it), stressed about work less, worked on building face-to-face relationships, spent more quality time with my family, and got on a major health kick.

Moments of Sparkle with Lightbox: Pricing Explained

Posted on 126 Comments

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

A while ago, I introduced a new brand and concept that I’m loving – Lightbox’s laboratory-grown diamonds. Remember how I was tempted to get another piece? Well, after getting a halo pendant necklace in blue, I really wanted one in pink too! This time, I got a 1/2 carat stone with the same silver setting. Occasionally, I like layering my necklaces. I felt that getting a smaller size would allow me to layer nicely with the first one I got! As I had mentioned before, Lightbox’s jewelry is light on the pocket, at just $800 per carat. Since jewelry pricing can be confusing, I wanted to take some time to explain how it works for Lightbox’s lab-grown diamonds!

I firmly believe in the saying, “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.” With that said, I normally don’t switch up my makeup products too often. Once I find something that works, I tend to stick with it. Every now and then though, I do enjoy trying new things – especially the ones that many people rave about. As a content creator, I’m blessed to have plenty of PR companies and beauty brands send me their latest & greatest to try out. It has been a while since I’ve written about my makeup routine, so I wanted to pop in and share with you some of my current faves!

Lightbox | Lab-Grown Diamonds for Every Occasion

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

I’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

Posted on 114 Comments

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!

Happy Fall, you guys! Palm Springs hasn’t quite gotten the autumn memo yet… I’m looking forward to temperatures dropping down below 100 degrees, and reducing AC usage at home. As we progress into the cooler months, I know that more people will be coming here to enjoy our beautiful weather! With that said, I’m continuing the Palm Springs series with another post on 15 of my favorite spots in & around my hood. There is just so much to see. I feel like no matter how long I live here, there will always be new gems to be discovered. If you’re planning a trip to the Coachella Valley, I highly recommend checking some of these Insta-worthy spots out!

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 🙂

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! 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?
