Shiny + Jumpsuit

Shiny + Jumpsuit

  Monday blues!  But not the sad kind, the really, really, REALLY happy to have this killer vintage jumpsuit kind.  Also really happy to pair it with a killer Wessley NYC bucket bag and some shiny shoes!  With a monday like that, how could you be upset?  Jumpsuits are such an easy wardrobe options, even easier than a matching set, since there is only one thing to put on.  Maybe it’s lazy, maybe it’s not, but I know for sure this is what they call love.  Happy Monday!    ...
Midweek Music Relief: The Clapping Song + My Essentials

Midweek Music Relief: The Clapping Song + My Essentials

I decided to do a what’s in my bag today to show you what I carry around on the reg.  Mostly it’s just hand sanitizer, lip colors of every shade, and toys.  I try to keep anything that may explode, i.e. lotion and hand sanitizer inside a plastic bag of sorts to avoid any type of tragedy involving anything else in my bag.  After that, I obviously keep my OTK cards handy and my you suck mirror just in case I need to reapply lip stuff when there isn’t a bathroom in site.  As far as a wallet goes, I keep it simple with a cute little pouch that just holds my ID, card and cash.  Really the most important things are the toys, you never know when you will need one.  What are your handbag essentials?  Lemme know while you take a listen to the playlist below! P.S. Can you tell which lip color I use most?  The entire logo is completely rubbed off… Bag: Wessley NYC Rae Bucket Bag Cobalt // Little Doll Pouch: Target // Revlon Color Burst from left to right: Balm Stain Romatic #045, Matt Balm Striking #240, Balm Stain Rendezvous #040 // Wet n Wild Balm Stain from left to right: A Stiff Pink #127, Rico Mauve #126, Lady and the Vamp #124 // Banana Zippered Bag: H&M (I couldn’t find this online, however I just saw them there about two days ago, so check your local store!) // Lotion: Jergens Travel Size // Hand Sanitzers: Bath and Body Works // Toys: various grocery store vending machines // You Suck Mirror: Forever21 Playlist by my lovely musically inclined assistant,...

Skin Care Routine

After getting a few questions about my skin & makeup, I decided to do a beauty routine post.  I know, kinda seems boring right?  Well I used to think so too, but sometimes you see someone and you are like “What are they doing!?!” because for some reason they glow and they aren’t pregnant.  I am in no way shape or form saying I glow, or that I’m pregnant, but it’s fun to share what I do, because maybe you are wondering!  Here goes! (I’m super excited, can’t you tell?) I start my day by, of course brushing my teeth, and then I always move right into washing my face with Image Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser.  After washing and drying, I apply Iluma by Image Bleaching Serum or Lightening Serum (alternating bottles, as soon as one runs out, I start the other and so on), and pat it over my face and neck to keep my skin tone even. I then move on to eye cream, I prefer Image Vital C Hydrating Eye Recovery Gel, dabbing it all around my under eye and brow bone.  Next I apply Image Prevention+ Hydrating Moisturizer SPF to my face, neck, and décolletage.  Never leave the house without sunscreen, especially on your face!  If I am feeling really adventurous, I will add a dab of Image I Conceal in Beige  to the sunscreen, to give a tinted moisturizer effect. (I hate the feeling of something on my face, especially foundation, so this is as much coverage as it gets for me.) I know this probably all sounds like a giant Image Skincare commercial, but it...
