Holidays, Your Style

Last Minute beauty guide!

We all know that the holidays are here, and nothing makes me more excited then wearing cozy pajamas in bed, that light up the holiday spirit! I always tend to buy a new pair each year, and fuzzy socks are my favorite. Gifting pajamas is always a great gift for anyone on your list. I have linked several pairs, including these cute ones from Nordstrom.

When it comes to beauty, I love to give the women in my life some of my favorite products. Let me be honest, the winter is hard on our skin, and a good mask and a fun lip balm are great stocking stuffers. Lately people have been asking me about my skincare routine, so I am going to break it down for you below, and any of these products makes for an amazing gift!

Daily skincare routine:

I always start and end my day by cleansing my skin with Revive Gel Cleanser. It is gentle on my skin, and this is one of my favorite brands. A makeup artist led me on to it years ago, and my skin has changed.

After I cleanse, I always wipe a quick cotton pad with Kiehls Ultra Facial Toner. It is made to comfort your skin, and helps suck in moisture.

I always use an eye serum, and although pricey, the Revive anti-aging eye serum is unbelievable. I use a small bit in the morning and the evening.

We all know that when it comes to lip balm, I am a fan of Rose Salve. I use it about ten times a day, and it works on your face, hands, and any bit of dry and damaged skin.

When it comes to moisturizers, I have one for the am, and one for the pm in the winter time. Once again, Revive, has changed my skin. For the am, their Renewal cream with SPF is perfection, and in the evening I use their ultra hydrating firming cream.

I tend to get brown spots from the sun, and the best formula I have found is from Skinceuticals. I put one drop in my moisturizer two times a week.

Last, once a week, I love a good mask, and my favorite is from Boscia. Their charcoal mask is perfect for impurities and pulling out those blackheads on my face.

Cheers and happy shopping!

If you are like me, and totally into the casual and cool lifestyle, nothing beats an easy Champion sweatshirt  mixed with a casual baseball cap like this one from Obey. I live in my Rastaclat bracelets, which is obvious and Doc Marten boots if I am not in sneakers. Both of these make for great gifts!

For the uber trendy NBA, I love mixing an unexpected cool dress with a team hat like this one from Fanatics.

Camo is going strong, and this dress from Revolve is perfect with tights too. Add a cool heel that looks like it could go out on the town or be for gameday and you are all set. Steve Madden has so many deals right now it is insane!

Red and pink sweater

Memory sneakers

These kicks and this cute sweater from Lulus are both on sale and are perfect for the whole season. Not to mention, if you want to purchase this scooter, you can find it on Shop Now to Fund

Silk joggers

For the trend setter, silk jogger pants and some DC kicks are the perfect gift. You can simply add a cool fashion forward hoodie and be the life of the party. Revolve has some of the cutest pieces, and again they are all on major discount for Cyber Monday!

So get ready, this is just the start of all of my holiday picks coming your way!

The Perfect Festive Holiday Look!

It is that time of year when I have so many parties it is hard to keep track. For me, I am usually running from one party to the next, so I like to find a holiday look that works for both the day and night. This week alone, I have a work party in the day, a fun holiday cookie event in the evening, and the annual holiday walk and fireworks show in Manhattan Beach.

holiday look pants from Lulus

These pants from Lulu’s are perfect for the holidays. Not only do they scream fun with their wide legs and fun slits, the color is spot on for any celebration. Not only will they go great with a chunky sweater, but I will wear them with a black pump and a fun bodysuit for a fancier event.

Steve Madden velvet boot

Can we say that velvet is the trend of the season? I took one look at these Steve Madden boots and new that I had to have them. I have always been a fan of over the knee boots in the winter. The texture of these makes the whole look feel even more festive.

I tend to live in chunky sweaters during the winter. Every year Express has some of my favorites. I love the color of this one, and as the weather transitions it will look gorgeous with a pair of white jeans. Mixing up the light rose with the darker burgundy makes the look pop even more.
